    I'll bite, trying to figure out the difference between the Free & Pro.

    both have in-app purchases so doesn't seem like one is full and the other is buy as you use...is it the Shapes and Patterns part?

    I have a few similar apps and sometimes they turn out too troublesome to use. I like how this looks with the gradients in the shapes.

    First off, I've never seen another app that does what our app does to the level of customization that we offer (You'll find out once you test it out. It's not just a simple sticker app). If you do know of another app that does what ours does then please pm me as I would like to check them out. Tangent might be close in concept, but in form and function we are very different.

    There are actually quite a few differences from the free and the pro version.

    Here is a short list:
    No IAP for Free version, we only push users to upgrade to pro
    Access to over 250+ patterns & shapes w/more packs to come from various designers as well as seasonal packs
    4 Additional packs unlocked (2 patterns / 2 shapes)
    16 Additional Presets
    Photo Editing features (constrast, brightness, exposure, saturation, temperature, grain) w/more editing features to come
    Multiple crop sizes (7 various sizes instead of just 1:1)
    You can add up to 5 shapes on your photo for some serious customization (This is the deal breaker!)

    I have pm'd you a promo code.

    Thanks for your interest!

    Gotcha...yeah from a quick-view I thought the other apps were similar...at work now and didn't get a chance to fully check into it.

    I will check the App out over the weekend (hope to have some time)

    It did spark my interest in what I could see from the screenshots.
    THANKS!
