Yep, I said "hella rad"! One, because I'm a California native, and Two, because this app is just that—hella rad! I'm a seasoned UI designer in the Silicon Valley with 15 years under my belt designing for high profile companies. And I must say that the UI and experience in the Fragment app is top-notch! It's intuitive and delightful and commands only minimal effort regarding a learning curve, which, once is established, becomes second-nature in terms of usability of the Fragment app. Kudos to the Fragment UX team! Did I mention that the graphic design options are gorgeous too! Yes, indeed they are...some of the coolest design options available under "graphic design" in all the App Store. Keep up the good work Fragment team! Cheers!
In the description of the app, the Developer says that giving his product great reviews "really help us to add new features." Well, he has 187 5-star reviews, and yet he abandoned the app a year and a half ago. This is a common plea among app makers, and many, (like this guy), never actually reward the time and effort you spent giving them those high reviews. It's a form of fraud, actually, and I'd like to see The App Store ban this all-too-common form of begging. If you created the app to make money, then let the money be your motivator. Because, for some strange reason, apps seem to be the one product that implies they will hold their services hostage unless I write a good review for them. My mechanic, or dry cleaner never tell me that they'll do a better job and work harder if only I will write a positive review. I don't consider bug fixes and adding more in-app purchases to be doing me a big favor. It's just part of doing your job as a Developer, and finding new ways to monetize the product. So why do I have to write a good review, in order for you to fix bugs? And if your product is good enough to generate word-of-mouth, then it will happen organically, without requesting reviews. So stop begging for reviews. And if customers DO leave them, then honor your word, and don't abandon your customers, when they kept up their end of the bargain.
The sheer number of effects alone will astound you. The interface is superb, the finished image is spectacular, and the amount of flexibility in your designs is worth significantly more than it's price. I recommend purchasing the additional effects (very reasonable) as they will help expand your level of creativity beyond your expectations. My only recommendation is that the developers allow for a long view, on the screen, of the text description of effect chosen.
This app is used by a large portion of the photography community to censor photos for Instagram. The biggest problem with this app is that it seems to sort photos in a seemingly random way so it’s almost impossible to find images from past shoots. Photos should be sorted by date taken or date added with the most recent first. But I can’t actually figure out how they are sorted because my images are just all over the place when I’m scrolling through to find a particular image. Also, it doesn’t work well with photos in the cloud. If the photo isn’t stored on your device, it doesn’t show up in the photo browser when selecting which image you want to use.
I love this app for editing and I use it a lot currently... However there seems to be a recent bit of crashing I’ve personally experienced. I’m quite thoroughly annoyed about it too, seeing as I just finished working on an edit for 30-40 minutes. I tried to save it and it crashed resulting in the loss of the edit. That is exceedingly frustrating and I’m currently at my limit about this issue. It’s not the first time this has happened either. At least update the “ recent” tab to actual recent, not the original starting point of the layout. I’m using an iPhone 6, updated to the current iOS just the other day
I'm a visual artist, and like composing ideas on pad & phone, using my own source photos, to then refine and fully flesh out using more robust software on my laptop. This app allows me to add some very interesting textures, visual elements, and complexities to my work. Composing the content within the fragments can be challenging - as it can seem counter intuitive at times - but worth the effort to learn its language of movement. All of the other controls are very well designed and straightforward, and new fragment shape packs for additional purchase are added relatively frequently. Recommended.
This app, Matter, Lory Stripes and Tangent. Two are already gone from the AppStore from what I can tell, I still have them, but Tangent doesn’t work any more (can’t provide it access to your photos) and Lory Stripes isn’t on the AppStore so will prolly die when Apple do the yearly ruin-apps routine. This app and Matter will be gone and/or stop working properly soon as well. The dev has moved on to other things I’m guessing, which is a shame as they’re all great apps, or were.
I've had this app for a couple of months now and the more and more that I tinker with it the more more I find really cool abstract ideas popping into my head. It's super easy to use. I will continue to use this app to get better as I see it has potential and being one of the main tools I use for designing cover art for the music that I made.
I’ve been using this app for over a year now, and I’m just really glad the authors of the app are truly making it the kind of creative tool, that challenges the user to keep experimenting, keep discovering just how much you can do with it! Finally I’ll say it runs smoothly, it doesn’t crash, and it’s addictive! So settle in, and get comfortable. 😁
I got this app as part of the Pixite Complete app bundle, and it has quickly become a powerful tool in my creative arsenal. The user interface is very streamlined and makes the creative process incredibly simple. Overall, this is a unique and powerful app which is well worth the money.
I've been trying to understand and learn this app over a few months. I don't edit much but I really dig this app. My only issue is the colors, the -/+ saturation of this colors & the switching of edits are too close together at the bottom. So I'll swipe left/right to fling through the colors then accidentally switch the edits jumbling up everything. You'd need fingers the size of pencils to avoid scrambling everything
This app hasn’t been updated in 4 years as of this review, but it’s still functional on my iPhone XS Max and produces some beautiful images. I do wish it’d get an update if only as assurance it’s worth paying to upgrade (which I’m seriously considering).
Easy to use and gets better with most updates. Flawless integration with Instagram and other editing apps. Adequate selection for a free app and even more to choose from if you pay a few dollars for edit packs.
I’ve used the app a lot in the past but now it appears to have been bought by another company… There are some interesting new features but the fact we can’t apply the fragment later to the entire image and can no longer move that fragment layer around the image is a huge disappointment
Adding layers of mysteries to my pics or video with this amazing app is my favorite thing to do. I bought all the packs which will give me unlimited combinations to play with, making life so much more interesting! Thanks for the fine app!
You guys created a dope tool people can express themselves with. I love this app ❤️ 👍 😃 thank you. I'm a musician and this helps me a lot when I'm making my album art and backgrounds. I wish I could save in extra high resolutions.
I love all the Pixite apps - they are absolutely necessary for my abstract iphone art creations - that said, I use Fragment the most, Matter is my 2nd most used app. It's easy to use and the possibilities are endless. I am a HUGE fan. iPhone Diva
I have all but two of your apps, and love them, but Tangent has been pulled, and Fragment hasn’t been updated in 2 years. I want Tangent back, and updates for all your apps. They are good, and I pay as I can for packs, but I don’t want to put in the money if they are going to be abandoned.
The fragments don’t load! I purchased this and the whole suite of apps. This was my favorite one. I’ve notice the other ones don’t work right since I upgraded phone either. Extremely disappointed. I hope it gets fixed soon.
Love the limitless creative outcomes. Love the higher resolution output from iPad. Love the intuitive, use this immediately interface. Love how much better this is for professional grade projects. Being Fragmented feels good!
I love this app for how unique your photos can become from it. I've also got the pixite app LoryStripes. In that app you can erase part of the stripes and make them less opaque. PLEASE ADD THIS FEATURE TO FRAGMENT!!!!
Not updating the app for two years should be enough reason to not download the app. It does not support iPhone X screen So yeah, it tells you enough what type of developer you will be dealing with and just to be fair. The app is working fine without any issues except supporting the iPhone X screen ratio.
Buggy microtransactions with zero customer support
I was happy with this app initially and purchased a few of the add on shape packs. After a short time all of the add on packs I've purchased became unusable, I've contacted support multiple times with no response. In short, decent app as long as you don't plan on wasting your money on broken add ons.
Thank you for updating this application. And please keep adding more features in the future updates. My device: iPhone 14 Pro Max (latest iOS), iPad Pro 12.9” (3rd Generation, 2018, latest iPadOS) Note: I regularly update my review/rating for this application. With Kindest Regards-Br
Fragment (featured in 153 countries) can transform any image into totally unique, one-of-a-kind prismatic art you’ll want to share with everyone. It all begins with your images. Take your camera and compose a photo, or select from your Camera Roll. Once you have your image, the enhancing is in full effect. Unleash your inner artist and choose from a collage of inspired frames, shapes and patterns. Watch as your image is “fragmented” instantly into a myriad of prism-like glass pieces, thanks to a lightning-fast interface that works in real time. No lag time here, thank you. Now dive in and manipulate at will. Rotate, resize, frame, drag, zoom, crop – Fragment is completely scalable and a true reflection of your imagination. Add colors and adjust levels. Desaturate. Blend. Blur. Invert. Or go for something completely random and tap shuffle. It’s all up to you where you want to take it. Ready to share? Send your vision to Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and other photo enhancement apps with just a tap. Still going? Hit “Refragment” and keep creating. Simple, and yet so beautiful, isn’t it? With Fragment, the pieces add up to something extraordinary every time.
