Customer Reviews

Even better than before!

The latest update (3.8.0) of Polarr really made this application shine even more! While I’m not a fan of the filmstrip at the bottom, it's usable. The performance of Polarr has increased and it handles files of nearly any size with ease. The only thing that I wish the app had was a better way to manage your catalog of images.

Polarr gives lightroom a run for it’s money IMO. Hear me out. For the price, you cannot beat what Polarr gives you. It's powerful enough for pro-edits and inviting enough that amatures and beginners can ease into editing. I think you’ll find that Polarr can perform just as well as lightroom or aperture. If you need cataloging and album sorting, right now, it’s not the app for you. I still highly recommend it though! It’s a great editor and it get’s the job done FAST! Plus, the ability to edit on your mobile and push it to the desktop or vice versa is just cool!
