            Love it but…. I love this app, but for a couple months, I have not been able to save photos that I have given a filter. It just says "save

            What about iPad!?. Making a version for the iPad won't be so hard‼️Just make a version for the iPad cause this one is not working
            Not liking the new retrica. I'm really upset now that when I take pictures on retrica it goes straight to my camera roll. And I take a lot of selfies so it
            takes up a lot of space that's why I kept retrica because it has it's ow
            Um.. I liked the old Retrica better. It let us decide whether we wanted it to go into our camera roll or not. But the new update
            doesn't. It automatically saves to your camera roll but I just to keep it on
            Paid to remove watermarks, they are back. I used to love this app. But it is buggy and the watermarks are back even though I paid to remove them. Restoring purchase doesn't
            work. Very disappointed.
            Force close. Perfect app! Everything I'm looking for! Was gonna buy the full version until it started to force close on me every time I tried
            to snap a pic
            Gay. The effects make me look black and I am white
            I don't like it anymore!. I bought the pro version and a day later when i try to use a different filter it tells me that i have to watch a video in order to
            get the filter.
            I liked it before have update. I used to love this app I used it everyday.until I updated if I wanted to use black and white it wouldn't be black and
   would be a little filter.GO BACK TO THE OLD RETRICA
            Eh. Used to love this app till they got rid of the multiple boxes
            Nice but why more after I bought?. I bought the app thinking I was getting the premium app but, I'm not really sure what I bought because now it's asking me to pay
            for filters I want to use? Doesn't make sense?
            MAJOR BUGS. I used to really like this app and it used to work really well, but now it has horrible lighting and every time I click on the app
            it let's me take a photo but then closes the app for no reason, and I
            Retrica apps. I love retrica, the problem is that all the good filters are locked, an on my phone I can only get so much filters. They should
            also make the pictures faster to take an make the color's look more pret
            Erases the wrong pic!. I love this app but it does erase the wrong picture sometimes. I had a really nice picture and I went to delete a different one.
            But instead it deleted the good picture that I had! Please fix this!
            Issues. I love retrica but, every time I even open the app it closes right back out and won't load. I've tried downloading it again but it
            hasn't worked.
