Worth my time
Yes, I like this app enough to take my personal time and scratch out a review! It’s worth it. Most things “Adobe” are. (Except that awful camera app) 🤷‍♀️ This one is super easy to use and learn as you go. No need for tutorials and classes to get going on your project. It’s like a super power packed mini version of their overwhelming and difficult to navigate regular apps. It has enough features to create amazing stuff, without being totally confusing and off putting. I just jumped right in and spent time having fun with my creativity.. the flyer I made came out unbelievably perfect. It didn’t take forever since the commands to get each little detail and elements of all types into a look your happy with, seem to be very obvious and extremely difficult to mess up. Plus there is the well love “back button” for any mistakes that are made. It’s really a fun and useful app! I’ve made slides for a presentation, created a flyer, insta posts, Face Book posts- it has all the preset sized canvases for each platform, so no guessing or research necessary. Alright, enough of this- they should pay me!!! Lol. Get it! It’s a dream.😁

Loving it so far, but...
Loving the app so far having experience with many design projects. Really creates a peace of mind when needing to run through multiple iterations of a design because you know what you want once you see it, and not having to stop the creative flow to draft new thumbnail mock-ups, grab more paper, or even shuffle through needed layers. Literally the only problem I’ve ran across multiple times is when saving the file size even at the recommended dimensions for any content I decide to post on social media it results in a pixelated image on the desktop version while appearing clear and crisp on the mobile versions. I’ve tried uploading the image that gets saved directly to camera phone and then viewing it on the desktop version and it still comes out pixelated and not as crisp. And just for comparison I also tried saving the finished project directly to google drive and then downloading the image on a desktop and then uploading the image from the social site on the desktop and yet the Image still resulted in the same quality. At the moment it has been only good to design for smaller screen content. As it seems the resizing feature doesn’t seem to actually effect the resolution even though the info on the desktop changes, when you need to scale a design up for desktop view. Still giving a 4 though.

Beautiful typography; kludgy to use
Posted my first attempt with Spark to Facebook, tried an animation with a fairly subtle zoom-out effect that looked very nice, but on Facebook the video kept looping repeatedly—it was about 3 seconds long. I found that there were limited options with text, with font point size missing altogether. (Most would agree that’s a pretty basic function, one would think.) You could change the relative size of text by enlarging or reducing the size of a text box or adjusting line spacing, but these were pretty awkward and unpredictable ways of doing so.) I wanted to italicize the title of the book from which I was quoting, but couldn’t find a simple way of doing that either—even though the font I used had a designed italic, I found I could not mix the two in the same sentence, after repeated tries of selecting and trying to format individual words. That said, the font selection was very good and quite tasteful, making any post created in Spark deliciously gorgeous and a cut above any typical meme-maker. As I mentioned in my post, I found the placement of the Adobe Spark logo at the bottom intrusive and lacking in subtlety or nuance. This needs to be addressed—I am not using the software primarily to create ads for Adobe. Still, because it can produce such beautiful results, I’m giving Spark four stars out of five.

Almost perfect
Typically I’m too proud to do anything the easy way. I sometimes feel that if I didn’t build something completely from scratch, I didn’t build anything at all. But Spark Post helps me to work smarter, not harder—to feel that using intelligent design tools doesn’t make me less creative, but instead helps me to clarify and realize my vision faster. It helps me to focus my energy on making better content instead of on unnecessarily fussing over the presentation of a simple social media post that will disappear in 24 hours and that is meant to communicate a message rather than be my magnum opus. The only thing about Spark Post that disappoints me is that, in its attempt to make things easy and auto-intelligent, there are certain key features missing for those of us who like more control. For example, paragraph styles and spacing don’t exist—you need to create a new text box. Resizing text boxes forces the text, the shape, and the border to resize together rather than allowing you to alter each style independently. This makes matching text boxes difficult. To make more precise edits, I could take my graphic into Illustrator—but the point of Spark Post is one-stop editing for quick and easy social media posts. It would be nice to be able to get under the hood of your design with more advanced options.

Remove background request for shadows
Apri 2022: Thank you for the reply. Yes, the new version with more quality stock photos is much better. Previously, if you held down on the photo it would appear larger to see more detail. This would be an excellent to add that feature back in. And, please, please add a drop shadow to the remove background. I use this app all the time and it’s great I can pick right up on my last edits on my computer. Dec 2021: Removing the free stock uses right before the holidays is a mean grinch thing to do! Ugh!!! Post was my go to app for quick social marketing, and what am I getting for the price now? Very frustrating and disappointed. Edit: Still hoping Adobe will add drop shadow to the Remove Background option to make this a Five Star rating. Each upgrade keeps getting better and better. I find I use Spark often for quick editing on my phone. The remove background works really well, except sometimes for objects with any white near corners it grabs too much of the object. Otherwise, it works great on other colors. The ability to add or to keep in the shadows with the remove background option would make this app nearly perfect!!

New update is absolutely terrible
Yesterday, April 19, 2024, I went into the app as usual and it showed me something that said if I wanted to switch to the new version or if I wanted to continue using the regular version. Being curious I wanted to see what the new version of the app was, and that was a BIG MISTAKE. The layout and everything changed and it is absolutely horrendous to work with. One big thing is that with this new layout and everything it makes my phone super slow every time I open the app now. I’ve been using your app since around late 2022 and have a no problems with it until this new update. It is so bad. It’s like how Discord changed their app’s layout with an update a few months ago and everyone hated it because of how bad it is. I’m noticing A LOT of companies doing this to their apps by changing the layout of them. If this is an considered an “upgrade” that means it’s supposed to help make the app better and easier to work with. This new update isn’t an upgrade. It has made it so much harder to work with. If there is a way I’m able to go back to using the old layout, even after it already gave me the chance and now I can’t go back, then PLEASE let me know because as of right now I am very disappointed with what this app has become now with this new update.

Unsatisfactory Update, Less Design Assets
I don’t know what happened to Adobe Express. One minute it was simple, easy to use, had a wide array of design assets, and the next, I have mysticism in my face and a fraction of the variety that I used to have in design assets. (Specifically in the old categories; they have added other “modern” categories that have a wide array of options) They used to have a wonderful variety of watercolor flowers and greenery that I’ve used for countless other projects, and now they only have a handful of flowers and greenery (in the watercolor style). They’ve added another category of ‘pointillism’ flowers, but they’re not much suited for any professional designs except maybe an art teachers flyer? The new ‘textured watercolor’ flower category is not really ‘flower’ or ‘watercolor’ but more abstract, expressive, modern designs. The few watercolor flowers they did have were dark, muddy tones, and the only watercolor flower arrangement I could find had skulls placed inside. Most of us who use adobe express use it for graphic design and professional projects, *most* of which do not feature skulls, moons, stars, symbols, hand with eyes, etc. It’s adobe’s free choice to add these elements, I just wish they had not done so at the expense of the other content. At this point it’s not usable for my professional purposes.

Great App
Spark Post is a great content creation tool. The learning curve isn’t daunting which is greatly appreciated. However, there are plenty of advanced tools like: animations, alternate font styles, etc. This application should accommodate most use cases, and the software has most if not all of the typical integrations you would expect which allows for easy content sharing on different platforms. I personally love the resizing presets for different social media sites. Most importantly this part of Adobe’s family of applications which ensures great user experience/interface, constant updates, and the introduction of new features over time. If you are a user who needs to brand your content there is an in app purchase that will allow you to do that as well. Can’t say enough good things about the app. Keep up the great work Spark Post team, I always look forward to the new features you introduce!

Very glitchy
I really want to love this app because Adobe products are my preferred programs for all things photography and work related. I was so excited that they came out with Adobe express so I could have one software to use with my coworkers on team projects. We used Canva and learned very quickly if someone created a template and decided to leave or remove you then you would lose all your hard work and have to start over. The biggest issue with Adobe Express is that for the life of me I can’t get the app and website to synch my template. I reached out to support and still can’t get them to communicate. The website is so glitchy and will crash while you are editing. I can’t get my documents to download as a complete pdf either. My two options are single page pdfs or images to combine into a pdf. But these are minor issues compared to the fact that the program won’t communicate between platforms. This is a huge issue for someone in the professional world considering the only option to edit on a phone is the app since the computer version is still in beta. I really wanted to give more stars but can’t with all of these issues.

Mobile is now essentially unusable
Adobe Express originally Dobe Spark has been part of my workflow for years now but now since the update it has been rendered essentially unusable when you want to edit text instead of just opening the text window it now zooms in on your project and only select exactly where you typed not allowing you to just start immediately typing. Whenever you click on any asset more than once even on accident it zooms in to fill it in the screen so if you're trying to look at your project you have to constantly zoom out in order to make any type of adjustment. Now in order to duplicate an object you need three separate menus to click through simply to duplicate or group items. before the update fonts were clustered in nice little icons so that you could easily select a font you wanted instead now it is a lengthy list that you need to doom scroll in order to find anything. how the app was previously was essentially perfect and now I think I'm just gonna have to cancel my subscription and find an alternative because even after learning how to use the update there is no way to edit things quickly unless you use a prebuilt template. Extremely disappointing.

The site says it has features that don't seem to exist
This app feels like it's supposed to work really well but the online tutorials are atrocious and it's so hard to figure it out. Like it took me forever to realize you have to actually tap the picture to get to the editor, and it's pretty good for simple edits, but the site says it has things like removing camera shake and other features that I can't find anywhere. The site says "just go in the app and make layers lol" as if it's that easy, but it doesn't tell me WHERE to do this, and it seems like the features are super vague without having previous knowledge of how they work. Also, why isn't there an option to fit your edit to the frame? And why does it change the size of the picture when I tap "move freely"?? It's incredibly inconvenient to have to do a freeform edit with no guarantee that it's not ruining the quality or actually fitting properly to the frame. These are insanely basic functions that seem nonexistent. Honestly, just improve the tutorials or make it a little more clear how things work cause right now it just seems like a sort of mediocre app that claims it can do things it can't.

Update from Spark Post to CC Express is a money grab!
I updated this app, which automatically changed it from Spark Post to CC Express and noticed right away that Adobe screwed us. Let me start off with this, they took away the ability to resize a graphic after you have started the project unless you pay for their premium membership. Before, you could do this extremely simple task without paying anything. They also ‘added’ a menu bar at the top of the home area that allows you to select a category of templates to select from when you start a project, which isn’t actually new. All Adobe did with this update is remove the ability to resize a graphic in the middle of the project without paying them $9.99 a month, and changed the name of Spark Post. It’s probably a good thing that they changed the name because now I don’t have to associate a once great product with whatever garbage this is now called. The sad part of this is that there are plenty of teachers and other people who work in education who used the Spark Post app because it was mostly free. I can’t see this happening going forward if this trend continues. If you can avoid updating from Spark Post, then hold off as long as you can!!!!

Thanks For The Critical Reviews
Well, I’m saddened and Glad at what I have read so far with latest reviews to the newest update. Adobe, why fix something that isn’t broken? My heart sank when I read about your “new” and “improved” version. Spark Post is by far the best app that I have come upon in years. Best, that I was willing to shell out the yearly subscription fee, which isn’t cheep. I just paid for the subscription over a month ago and now I get to deal with a broken app? No thanks! I’ll will refuse to update my app until you address all of the issues I am reading about, which is larger than what has been reported. Now that I think about it, I tried emailing my projects from Spark Post this morning and all of a sudden they aren’t delivering to my email…. Very strange… Consumers, it’s time for all of you to speak up if you are unhappy with what is being done here. Let the developers know that they messed up. Be very suspicious of the two to three word reviews after the newest update to what ever they are calling the app now saying how great this app is. Whole thing smells pretty stinky to me.

My God, the GLITCHES
I am once again begging Adobe to please make Adobe Express more user friendly and intuitive. All you need to do is find some people who work at Canva and hire them because Canva does not have many or most of the problems AE has. We've been told the mobile app version (as in the one that is fully compatible with the desktop version) is coming soon, but using this program is such a drag right now. The app freezes. The export feature takes so long. I do not want to create content using generative AI and would like to be able to turn this feature OFF. I understand that the people who are working on this are probably doing the best they can with the resources they have. Perhaps Adobe could for some more money over and hire more people and then give everyone raises because it's really insulting to use this product -- I pay for Adobe CC monthly and therefore feel it would be ridiculous to pay another subscription to Canva on top of this, but yall need to figure this out ASAP because I feel like I'm setting my money on fire. Thank you so much.

Only Two Requests
I absolutely love this app! I use it constantly for my Etsy and Facebook pages and could use it even more if I had the time. Because it’s so easy, I change my pages and banners frequently - following seasons or announcing sales, or just so much fun, etc. I use the free templates as backgrounds and never fail to find something for the occasion. There are only two things that would make this app perfect for my needs: 1). The 5% opacity often leaves a text box shadow when using a font effect such as outlining or shadow - 0% would solve this problem. 2) Resizing using social media templates and background templates crops the image but will not reduce it to fit. I’ve even tried other apps to do this but it’s a nuisance. So much better if a image resizing capability could be included in Spark Post. With the addition of these two capabilities I would rate this app with 5 stars - and 10 if it were possible! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟x2

Almost perfect
Whether it’s a witty meme, an image to send to friends and family, laughter, or a tool that allows you to create professionally created images for your business, this app is almost perfect. I would even go as far as saying Adobe apps are a game changer. I can produce high quality images on my telephone. As an artist, I can create images for my business to promote my work online or small print. This app helps you create stunning, modern, and eye catching material. The downfall of this particular app is the logo imprinted on images, unless you pay $9.99 per month for a premium version. Granted, Adobe access to a tremendous amount of technology through their apps, free of charge. That’s what makes this particular fee seem like it’s trying to nickel and dime customers. You can make your image a little larger, and then crop their logo, or you can use another app to place your logo over the app logo in the final image. It’s an extra step, but easy enough to do, so I don’t see a reason to pay for a premium version. One of my favorite features is that the app allows you to size images for specific social media platforms. The exact image may vary from one platform to the next, but I maintain the same theme and branding. This is really a game changer. I remember starting as an artist, and technology was so different. Advertising seemed out of reach at times. Now, it’s like I’m my own advertising department.

Good but needs obvious improvements
Its a decent editing app but has some easy fixes that would make it so much better. 1. When the grid says something is centered in the middle of the template, it is actually off by a little bit so you end up having uneven patterns. 2. When you line something up with the edge and it makes you lock on to it, it isn’t actually on the edge but very close to it. You can see the gap between the object you placed and the edge of the project. Same applies when you try to put objects together, they arent actually touching and its very frustrating because theres an obvious gap between them that is easily visible. 3. When you press the “remove background” button on something with a white background and a dark subject, it doesn’t allow you to change the color of the subject but instead makes the supposedly deleted background that color which defeats the whole purpose of the tool. 4. When moving objects around it is very hard to get freedom of placement. It always wants to lock on to the grid but will sometimes let you move it freely if you move it very slowly, but it is inconsistent. Plus the grid is usually off anyways so it makes it extra annoying. 5. These problems may seem pretty small but when you want a project without mistakes these things get really annoying very fast. I make very simple projects that are made way harder by this app just not doing its job when it comes to some things.

New Update is forcing Artificial Art as opposed to Organic Art.
Update: Adobe will reply to all negative reviews with links telling you why you have to switch to AI. They have fully lost their way. Update just updated some users to a new beta version of the app. The app is riddled with AI and it is harder than ever to edit images. As a long time customers and nearly a daily user of Express this has cut into my workflow in a big way. Running a small business, graphic design is a necessity and a budgeted item. I reached out to Adobe Support and they advised you can migrate back to the original app. However, this will be a required up date in May. Coincidentally he advised my subscription is up in May. If you don’t already use Canva, look into it. It has the same powerful editing engine but with tasteful AI integration (even though I don’t plan to use any of it). That’s what I am making the switch to when my subscription is up. Thanks for all the years Adobe. I just wished you remained as a company that supports artists as opposed to promoting machines that will kill organic art.

Adobe Express
I’ve seen all the variations overtime, from Over to Spark post to Adobe express. - While in Over the app was super easy to use, It wasn’t bad at all as Spark Post or adobe express. - But it’s been a while since I’ve used this app and coming back to see the latest update in adobe express I am confused why there was the need to cluster bomb and complicate such a beautiful smooth app. - I use the app to print documents, share photos, make Instagram posts but print mostly worded documents. - Instead of giving visual aids of how the document will be like I’m seeing all these different names for formats which I know nothing about. I have to click on individual formats to check what it will be like. I had gotten used to Instagram, Facebook, a4 & letter size posts… which were previous available. - Plus, when I paste the long paragraphs on a selected format whether it be landscape or portrait for instance, the app goes in full blown stutter mode, the app lags a lot. - My review for this app as it stands is all time low. Super disappointed.

It’s fixed? I’ve fallen back in love 😍
I’d started having trouble with the app after a few weeks of using it without issue, I felt blown off when I contacted help, I continued trying to use the app but complained about the issue here. A few days later seen I was asked to contact support again but I figure letting them know about the issue is enough - so I wait it out. It’s now been over a week and I haven’t had anymore issues. I’m back to loving this app but worried it’ll change after I update my review. Not necessarily based on a lack of trust in Adobe but businesses in general. I’ve always been a fan of Adobe and been a creative cloud subscriber for years and happy about it for 99.9% of the time. Which is why I was so flustered by the issue with this app but it seems to be fixed now so- yay! 👍🏼👍🏼

Love it but the bugs screw you over
I love this app. I love adobe. I think it’s amazing for creatives and I praise this app and its possibilities. HOWEVER, i’m tempted to stop using spark because of it’s major bug issues that have become detrimental to my business. I go one day from it working to another day telling my client that we’ll have to delay posting because the app keeps telling me to renew my subscription, yet when i try to renew it, the options come up blank. So I spend hours trying to fix the problem, resetting my phone, redownloading the app. Its EXHAUSTING. Especially because I probably do this once a month. And every few months it just decides to turn the images black, keeping only the texts when i try to download or post. And when i do the reset, redownload, it deletes all the work i’ve just put in. Spark has been a life saver. But it I catch it on a bad day, it can ruin everything, setting me back by at least a day. Please, please, PLEASE fix these issues. I don’t want to stop using this wonderful app but if this continues I might have to.

Some Five Star Apps aren’t perfect yet. But they will be.
As a 30-year creative director, head of user & consumer experience (UX+CX), digital strategy executive and visual communicator, I learned three things early on: 1) Great art comes from great artists, not tools. 2) But if you’re a pro, you know and work with Adobe tools. 3) This isn’t artwork. It’s a professional’s work. Use Adobe. This mantra has loosened a bit over the years, and Adobe has disappointed us in some recent product decisions that left us with unstable, bloated, laggy and crash-prone versions of the tools our business runs on: Photoshop. Illustrator. Lightroom. Bridge. Acrobat Pro. All have added resource-hungry bloats (3D in PSD) that diminish the power of stalwarts like Photoshop by making them sluggish, unpredictable and burdened with new features that keep the software from providing the core value and stability we can’t operate without. **** With this is mind, I’ve used Adobe Spark’s apps since the early betas. The triumvirate of apps under Spark has finally settled after a bit of confusion over each app’s purpose and relation to the others, and the initial technical problems with app crashes seems to be resolved.

Lack of features compared to similar apps
The thing I think I find most disappointing is that this app lacks some of my favorite features from the Over app. 1. There isn’t a way to add basic shapes and “add icon” is a mediocre substitute. In the Spark templates they often cheat to make shapes by typing letters and then making the font and font shape the same color. This is ridiculous. Just add some shapes. And snapping is usually not accurate for the icons so they look misaligned unless you nudge them around. 2. The size snapping is often more harmful than helpful. And there’s no way to type in the specific size you want so you end up endlessly bouncing from too big to to small. It’s infuriating. 3. There’s no masking feature. I miss this the most. It’s the thing that makes the most difference between “I did this on my phone” and “I’m a professional.” PLEASE ADD THIS 4. You can’t zoom in to see where things are actually lining up. 5. Nudge seems to move things based on a percentage of the size so getting equal spacing on different sized elements is pretty much impossible. 6. There are no gradients. Which could be a part of the shapes. You can do this, I believe in you. I really want to make this work because I already paid for it. I’m sure developers use other apps to see what’s going on elsewhere, but if they don’t, you really should.

Love it, but needs minor improvements to be 5 stars
Overall, this app is great! I love how versatile it is. You can make just about anything for your graphic design needs. I find the pre-made color themes to be helpful, & it’s great that they can easily be tweaked to suit your needs. I also love that some of the font faces can be changed to bold, italic, thin, etc. And the availability of logos, stock photos, & patterns is quite vast, making it fairly simple to find what you need. Here’s what I think could be improved: - I am subscribed to the premium feature, which was working on here, but is now only working on the spark video & spark page apps. This doesn’t end up being a big deal, because I just remove the spark logo, but it would still be easier if I could have this issue fixed. - There are a good number of fonts to choose from, but I’d like to see a few more added, OR the ability to easily import new fonts. - I LOVE the inspiration pages & that they’re organized by category! However, if there was a search function, it would make things even easier to navigate & find what you’re looking for. For example: if I’m looking for inspiration on a flyer, it would be helpful if I could search the term “flyer” to find different flyer designs.

Fixing text is very difficult on iPhone
I love express on my desktop, however—trying to quickly make a fix or precisely trying to delete a word on my iPhone 13 mini is difficult. Double tapping to select a word exits out of the text box, and trying to move the place of the text box automatically sets to rotate. There also is no feature where you can hold down on the space bar and move the text cursor. Instead of tapping next to a word to type or backspace, you have to tap above the text box. Please fix for smaller devices. Any other editing app I have works fine on my phone and have never had this issue—so it’s not my thumbs.😂 OH—and also if I turn my phone to landscape it doesn’t have orientation so theres barely any room to view/edit my 1920x1080 project landscape style (yes my phone’s orientation is unlocked)

Powerful application
Spark post is a great tool to have to create great simple social media posts that truly stand out from the rest. No matter what you’re using it for it’s great for sharing memories marking a special occasion but is a powerful tool especially for those who use social media to promote their business, website , cause or purpose. Easy to use and allows you to use stock templates and a huge selection of unique imagery or also upload your own images or content. Allows you to size your images with pre- sized templates for every platform you may need. I use it for many different things. The application is forever adding new useful pictures and the ability to make fully customized designs can take a bit to learn but trust me it’s worth your time.

One feature in Particular...
As a creator, I've explored many apps that can help make the process easier, and Phonto has been my right hand man in that process. I didn't see anything new or particularly special about Abode CC Express, but I was working on a album cover and I discovered this tool called "Style" and essentially what it is is a rolodex of various computational outputs of style that your words can take. It mixes in font, color, and other details like letter and word placement. And all you have to do is just turn the wheel and the font changes right before your eyes, I mean I've never seen something so fluid and brilliant. Did Kanye help design it? No I'm kidding, kudos to the mind that saw that as a good thing to add because it's reaal good.

Don’t Fix What’s Not Broken
This was a GREAT App, my go-to for marketing and creative content. I loved playing with it and utilizing the tools for both professional and personal applications. While I can appreciate the potential behind this recent update, it is nonetheless leaving me absolutely frustrated. We can no longer use the grids, templates and other design features to instantly change our layouts. Instead the features layer on top of the previous ones or add a new page. This means starting completely over, even within the same file I was working on. The stickers (my absolute favorite feature!) is seemingly gone. I do appreciate that we can more or less make our own using animations and whatnot, and yet the library of graphics is extremely limited compared to what we used to have. It’s just not the same. And further still, the update boasts thousands of new components, and yet a simple search for “books and tea” bring a disappointedly small amount of results. I might find in time that the new update will suit my needs and desires for content creating, but I am not sure I care to find out, especially when I was already paying $10 a month for features I knew and loved but no longer have access to.

Great for beginner-moderate skill level
I love using the Adobe express app. It’s a great tool for formatting quick and easy creative expressions that are a marriage of your own skill and professional provided images and designs. With my projects so far if it’s in my brain, I’ve been able to translate it to screen and then printed copy with the help of Adobe express. I’m not a designer by trade but feel proud of my work and have actually been commissioned to create logos since sharing my first few designs. On the flip side, if I were a full time designer, I would not use Adobe express as my primary resource. I would keep the subscription for added inspiration but I’d turn to a more in depth app or software. It’s been perfect for a novice like me.

Adobe only thinks of themselves
Beyond their community forums, I’ve gotten nowhere when it comes to syncing my projects between one device and another. Doesn’t matter if I have Wi-Fi it doesn’t matter if the devices are updated, it does not matter. Therefore, unless you’re looking for an app that is a standalone and cannot be used online on a desktop and ADOBE is the best place to go. If you’re looking for an app that cannot be used on more than one device adobe is the right way to go. If you try to use something only on your tablet or only online Adobe is the right way to go, but if you’re your multi device app, you need to look for Canva or another product.

Love the object removal
I’ve used about every photo editing software forever and mobile out on the market. By far and none, Adobe Express (mobile is the application I am reviewing and used it on this instance) did an incredible job. Not only did it completely remove the object but the auto fill will ai using surrounding area to fill in the space was fantastic. I was given 3 options to choose from. Of course if I wasn’t satisfied I could redo my ‘highlighting’ of what I wanted to remove. Key take away: be sure to include outside the area you want to remove to give so choices and your out come will be much better than if you just high light what you want removed. (Which that is the case for many other programs out there currently) The only feature that would be great to include on the mobile is if there was an option to ‘auto enhance’ or ‘ai enhance the image. Sometimes the images are grainy, not crisp or slightly blurry and this would be really nice to have as a quick fix for those photos that we took that we didn’t get quite right. Other than that…great product!

Great — when it works.
I use Adobe Spark Post to make Instagram story promos for my youth program’s events. It is very easy to make a great-looking promotion with this app, taking minimal time and effort, and it’s a lot of fun to use. But that’s when it works. Every once in awhile, the app seems to forget that my paid Photoshop plan includes the premium version of Spark. When this happens watermarks appear, my branding is inaccessible, and I can’t duplicate posts made using premium features. Signing out and back in doesn’t fix it — usually I just need to wait for it to fix itself with an update. I make a promo image WEEKLY using Spark. I need it to work, or I need to make something manually in Photoshop which takes more time and is less convenient [because I can’t do it from my phone wherever I am in five to ten minutes]. As of this writing, I can use premium features on the website but not in the app… so there’s a workaround, but this is an issue that needs to be fixed. I have access to Spark Premium, but it’s not reliable — and that’s a problem. If they were to fix this issue, I could definitely recommend Spark Post. As it stands, I can only tell you “it works great when it works, but sometimes it doesn’t for weeks.” That’s not exactly a sparkling recommendation.

Great App
Been using this for 3+ yrs now and it’s my go to for everything from a social post, invite, product ad and even a portfolio in little time. After a mishap with my actual work, I designed and presented my entire portfolio on Spark thru an iPad the night before. Blew them away, got the job too! When combined with other apps such Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightroom, Rush, PixelLoop, and others, the results are endless. Features I would love to see in the future is more motion options for type and ways it could interact with the background? More editing options for images would be huge too? Overall, I love Spark Post, Page, and Video! Really great tool to get things done quickly. Recommended!

Crashes & Deletes Your Project
When i first downloaded Spark it was awesome. It still is. I love what it has to offers, especially for free. However it has been crashing SO much, 9/10 times deleting my projects I’m working on which inquire a lot of work. I run an online business and use spark to make my promotions. Today, i tried going on; crash, crash, crash, crash, crash, crash, crash - it will not open!! Very frustrating! Update: since this app has had a few updates since, it’s running hella better AND they have added new features which has me OBSESSED!! App is easy to use, easy to navigate and stores every project you do which is SO convenient since i use it for business and personal use

Adobe! Haven’t you learned?!?
Last year, Adobe made changes to the app that everyone absolutely hated. It seems that after all the complaints, they changed it back. Now, here we are again. They have changed the app so much that it feels unusable! For starters, when you try to use Adobe stock photos…good luck! Almost every word that you type in the search will say, “Couldn’t find anything.” These are everyday words like holidays or “American flag” that would show thousands of pictures before the “update”. What were they thinking? If they don’t change it back, I will have to cancel my subscription and search elsewhere.

New App/Migration All Good
I initially was not happy and sent a lower review because nothing was migrating to the new version app and I couldn’t find anything and it’s not very intuitive, however, I realize it took roughly 20 minutes for that to happen. I guess I should know better but there was no warning or wait or loading or anything like that so I thought that everything was lost. I was incorrect and the new format is clean and although I don’t think it is as intuitive, I like it and it seems to provide a lot more options for saving things and storing them, which will be nice I’m sure for professionals who need to organize their files! Thanks Adobe.

I used have a ton of complaints but slowly each has disappeared.
When I first got spark post it was mostly for creating simple and easy social media graphics. I had tons of complaints about the limited functional and the unstable app bugs but slowly they’ve added features that have made this app my main graphics design app. There are a couple issues that still remain. The photo selector is nearly unusable and choppy. The syncing is inconsistent. The alignment guides are often hard to handle (please allow us to use center alignment guides on left and right aligned text). Great program for anyone who wants to create quick and clean graphic designs.

I am so frustrated with this app!
I have been using Adobe Express since December and have loved it up until my project stopped syncing to the cloud. I uninstalled and reinstalled as instructed, made sure I was logged in properly in both instances, did not have them open at the same time and all to no avail. Then, I think there was some sort of update and now it completely crashes. It will not stay open for more than five minutes on the mobile version or the web version. I have been working on this project for a month. I saved it all to my LightRoom as photos in hopes of cobbling it together and obviously can no longer edit. I had to start all over and now the program won’t stay open. Please fix this new, upsetting bug. I’m so, so disappointed.

Texts lost their quality
Spark post is one of the best app I had ever used and I create all of my posts with this app. But I faced a problem recently when I wanted to create some posts for my page. And the problem is: When I add texts on images I can see the texts clear but when I export the image the text loses it quality and it’s hard to see that what I typed, maybe it’s because I used low quality images but it must not be the reason because the aim is to write something on texts whatever it is but the texts must stay and keep it’s quality even if we Zoom the image, texts must be shown very clear. Plz fix this text on photo problem. Plz plz I really pleased with this app but plz fix this issue that texts must not drop it’s quality during export. Thanks 🙏

Create attractive flyers, cards, and other PDFs for free!
This app allows me to create attractive flyers, cards, social media posts, and other PDFs for free. While the full suite of Creative Cloud apps involves a significant financial investment and what looks like a long learning curve, this app involves neither. Start off by editing a few templates, then begin creating from scratch. If you really want to take the time and money to use the Creative Cloud apps, you can do so at that point. At that point you will have a much better idea of what you need that you cannot do with free tools. But you might be pleasantly surprised to discover that this free app has everything that you need.

Greatest app but i have feature requests
Thank you so much for the wonderful program you created. I owe it to all the team that is working hard, so that we can produce content easily and seamlessly, but I had a request from you that if you add this ability to the program, you have really made a fundamental change and taken steps to create unique content. And It is adding and subtracting shapes and the merging shapes with each other. I mean icons shapes that's all. With this feature app become great . Add if this possibility of merging become available for merging to photos that's make it a masterpiece. Thank you guys for good job you are doing back there

Love the app except ...
I have a full subscription to Adobe CC and use this app on my desktop and iPad. So I get the premium features to add my logo to a post, which is nice. But once in a while I try to use the app on my iPad and it tells me I have to subscribe to get the premium features. I ALREADY pay the full monthly subscription price for the entire CC suite of applications. I don’t need to subscribe to Spark again. There’s no place to fix this. I tried quitting and opening up the app, but still get same problem. Getting very annoyed! I opened a previously created post that had a logo on it and when I went to open it up to edit it, the logo disappeared and the app tells me I have to subscribe. 😠

Canceling After 3 Years - Basic text edit features missing
The updates are embarrassing and have made this app unusable. I’ve been a premium member for almost 3 years and finally cancelled this month. The updates completely broke my social media content workflow for my small barbershop. You can’t even left or right justify text in the text boxes more than a year and a half after the forced updates to their integrated “AI.” Their AI must be very stupid if it can’t handle running alongside basic text editing functions. Adobe should be embarrassed but they aren’t. They’re just happy to take your money and tell you more advanced users like not being able to edit text in their program that is explicitly called “express” and marketed to non-power users. Save yourself the money and look elsewhere if there is any text at all in your social media content.

I love this app and, until recently, never had a single complaint about it. The content is great, and the ease of use is awesome. But lately, the app keeps crashing. First it was whenever I tried to start a new project. But I love the app so much I found a way around that and copied old projects then recreated what I needed. But I can’t even do that anymore! Now the app crashes upon opening! I’ve deleted and reinstalled it 3 times with no luck. I’ve checked the App Store for updates even though my phone is set to automatic. I’ve restarted my phone to see if refreshing that system works. Nope! Nada! I love this app and use it, or at least used to use it on a daily basis. This crashing thing is no good. Please fix the issue ASAP!! I’m paying way too much to not be able to use the app when I need to.

Makes life easier
For those who feel that they are creative but need a creative spark (no pun intended), this is the app for you. I often find myself unable to start on a blank page and with so many creative options and a wide variety of posts, I feel like there are no limits to what I can achieve with this app. Creating fun little posts is a breeze and extremely intuitive with the tools they’ve provided. I highly recommend this app I’d you’re using it to start up your own small business to advertise or simply want to spruce up your social media posts. I’m sure there are more use cases but I couldn’t believe how this app makes those creative ideas accessible.

Easy to use and beautiful!
I really enjoy this app! It has taken my lists and posters to the next level! I would, however add two things if there were an update to be made. One is to have an option to combine everything together which is already completed on the page and move it all together in unison( Like on Procreate. You can merge all parts together.) The other thing is having the option for more fonts. We use fonts from a different program which can be frustrating. All in all it’s a beautiful app!!The colors and pictures are so vivid! It’s very easy to use. I gave it five stars!

I love this app
I have been using this app for some time now. I had it before all the premium posts were even there. All were free. Since the change I have found it just as good. It now has way more ways to add features to you posts. It works great especially if you want to theme your look on Instagram or other social apps. You can make templates and just duplicate and rename and use the layouts you already created. Super easy and fast. I do kind of wish you could schedule posts right from this app so I don’t have to use another one. I could use one app for everything If that was here. Even with out that feature I give this 5 stars.

I also do not ever write reviews so this app is really something. I LOVE how if your phone is acting up or something happens and the app closes IT SAVES WHAT YOU HAVE so far! There’s so many diff modes and ways to do projects. There’s only one little feature I would add just some extra templates for like leases or important documents like court papers, imagine how helpful it would be to have a template for something like that! It would be amazing. I love this app though and I recommend it to anyone. It teaches you what to do step by step, before you know it you will be a pro! Thank you! Oh and if you get premium oh man it’s off the chain awesome!

Loved it
I use this app only every so often, and when I used to use it it was always extremely easy! With the new update I was glad to see a refreshed layout, and it looked nicer overall. But, what got me was that I couldn’t manage to resize any of my images I added. I would try to grab the circles and it would just move the whole image, except for two times where I accidentally was able to grab the circles. So I switched back to the old version and I WAS able to grab the circles to resize things! But now it’s super laggy when I move photos or crop or anything, so I don’t know what to do. Overall I enjoy the app, I just hope they fix some things.
