“Some of the Light Hits are so subtle but add such a massive improvement to photos. I love that they don’t necessarily scream “Presets!” but feel more natural in that you would never know it was added in post.” - Peter McKinnon
"Blurring off the edge of the photo can add an organic element to the photo or easily draw the eye to a particular part of the image. Lens Distortions gives you the power and freedom to do this easily and effectively... just adding a hint of subtle mood to your Instagram is extremely easy." - Fstoppers
"The app is very easy to use because it wasn’t developed to be an all-in-one editing suite. It does only one thing (add lens/light effects to your photos), but it does it amazingly well." - iPhone Photography School
