  • Hi!! I love your app, but I have Android. I already read the tips of Sarah from Arrow & Apple Photography, but I want a similar app like yours, does it exist?? Congratulations, i think it’s the best one!!!

  • Cute APP but can’t print the pics! When I uploaded them to make prints, everything got cut off.

  • Wow! It is so amazing. Great job! But please please please make the app available for Android as well! Or then I have to buy an i-phone… 😉 Can’t wait for it.

  • Totally Obsessed with this app! Very impressed and inspired, well done! <3

  • This app looks great, I just downloaded it! =]

  • Wow, such a cute app! I will definitely have to check it out 🙂


  • Hi! App is super fun – just downloaded and can’t stop making. Found same bug as mentioned above – photo keeps reorienting with every edit. Very frustrating!
    For future update – would be great to have different layers for text, to work out size, font, placement for all copy.

  • Please, please, please check my comment in iTunes. I am under FaithVogelsang


  • Mariana- there are two things you can do! E-mail our support team- contact AT rocketmobile DOT co (be sure to include as many details as possible- what device are you using? what are you doing when the crash happens etc…)
    Also, next week version 1.1 will be available, which includes bug fixes for crashing!

    Thank you so much for your support! Elsie

  • MY APP KEEPS CRASHING!! WHAT CAN I DO? I restarted the app, unistall then re-installed it again, nothing works 🙁 HELP PLEASE?

  • I love this app, but I don’t have an iPhone. Are you making it available for the Play Store for Androids/Google phones? Would LOVE to have it!!!! 🙂

  • I had so much fun today using the app! And I love how much “like” I got for my pictures, the dolddles complement them beautifully ^^

  • Wish I could use it – looks like so much fun. Any chance of an android version??

  • Your app looks so beautiful and fun!I can’t wait for the android version to be released 🙂

  • I have found a bug or two…the photo keeps reorienting with every edit I do. Add a phrase and the photo turns to the left. Add a doodle and it rotates again. Really gets things messed up by the time you are done. I did email the developers though. O/w I’m LOVING the app, it’s truly beautiful, just don’t know why it takes off on it’s own every so often!!

  • I know it is a few days later but I have to say I LOVE the app. I use it now to all my iphone pics instead/with Instagram! My geniouses 🙂 you can check the pics on my latest post if you’d like, all pics are made over with your app.


  • I used this all weekend to pretty up my photos. I love this APP!!! Thank you!!!

  • Love the app (and basically everything else you gals do)! My only request would be to provide an upgrade that includes an undo button. Otherwise, it’s golden! Keep up the amazing work. You are such an inspiration.

  • Just bought it this weekend and love it. I am writing up a whole review and how to use for my subscribers. So excited to pass on and share this awesome app!! Great job ladies!!

  • I bought these for my husband for Christmas. I was worried that they wouldn’t fit him or would be too small/ too big I wasn’t sure. However when I gave them to him they were perfect. They looked and fit amazing. He was so happy with them. I’m so glad I bought these online cause I looked in stores and they were never under $110.

  • This app is exactly what I am looking for, but I am Android. Please please please make an Android verssion!!!

  • Just shared some love for this amazing app on my blog!
    Great job girls!


  • Leena- Thank you for bringing this to our attention! Are there any fonts that you would recommend that include these characters?

  • Karli Jessen- Yes, you can restore your purchases so you do not need to make them again. Use the “restore” button. If you need step by step instructions please email contact AT rocketmobile DOT co and they can help walk you through it. 🙂

  • I like this app very much and have recommended it also to my friends.

    I live in Finland and what I’m missing is Scandinavian letters Ä and Ö in some fonts, Spring Fever, Happy Dance and Tall-n-Skinny. These are used also in for example Swedish and German so I hope Ä and Ö can be added or more fonts where they are included in. 🙂

  • I just purchased your app on the May 15th of this month and I got a new phone yesterday. I purchased all the add ons. When I downloaded all the apps back on my phone and opened a beautiful mess app it tells me i have to purchase all of them again. I ordered every one! Can you help and tell me how I can get them back without purchasing again?

  • Downloading this right away! Looks so great and I’ve seen several instagrams with your app already 😀

  • Im so sad 🙁 I want this app so bad but my phone isn’t upgraded to iOs 6 yet so it won’t let me download it

  • Congrats! I can’t wait until it comes on Android so I can actually try it out.

  • I love how fun the app is. The hand-drawn doodles and borders are especially cute and not something I think I’ve seen elsewhere.

    I will say, though, I was a bit disappointed to see exactly how much of the content had to be purchased after already paying for the app. I would’ve rather paid a larger price up front than be surprised by having to make so many additional purchases. Also, I’m not sure if it’s just me, but whenever I’ve used one of the filters, it noticeably lowers the quality/sharpness of my photo. I’ll probably avoid using them until that’s resolved.

  • Love love love it! Already using it like mad and have lots of friends on the bandwagon. Huge congratulations for the launch! What a mad success!

    Posted here about it 🙂

  • Eh, can’t use on my Android…Android users are creative people too. Wink, wink.

  • I feel like you were READING my mind. I’ve been dying for something like this and WAY too lazy to do it in Photoshop. Thank you!!!

  • Definitely buying this app! Congratulations!!



  • I downloaded it on my mom’s iPhone and love it!! The doodles are sooo cute + awesome! Lovely job 🙂


  • Hey Elsie + Emma!
    Congrats on all the success of your new app. I’ve used it a ton and love it. I featured it on my blog as my Friday Fav New Thing. Keep up the great work.


  • congratulations!
    the app is the cutest – have been having a blast playing around with it!
    nice job ladies <3

  • Love the app ladies!! Stayed up all night using it…Hope to see more fonts, doodles and phrases added! Thanks, keep up the AWESOME work.

  • Hey! I’m reading your blog every day from Switzerland.
    It’s a pleasure to discover what you create and all your fresh ideas!
    I have to say this app is really cool! You did a great job!
    Thank you and keep writing!

  • Love this app! A flickr-integration with the first update would be awesome! 🙂

  • I love it but I don’t like how I have to pay more for more features. I thought that is why I paid the 99cents.

  • Love the app but have a question! How do u delete a filter,font etc without starting over from the very beginning when you are editing a pic? Thanks!

  • Will you be releasing it for android as well? I want it so bad!

  • Just got the app last night and I L-O-V-E it! Thanks so much for sharing!

  • Omg, please get this to Android, I’d love it!


  • Thank you sooooo much! brilliant morning spent doodling and sharing photos!

    Big XXX’s and hugs! Jeni

  • I can’t wait until you release this for Android! I hope it will be soon.

  • invested his wednesday days taking walks down the suggests of

  • Wow! I’m so excited to try it out! Great work girls 🙂

  • Whhoa congratulations on a wonderful app!!! Much success to you <3 I will check it out 😉

  • Congratulations – how exciting! Can’t wait for the Android version!!!! xx

  • if I had a iOS 6, I’d probably spend way too much time playing with this app. looks like such fun!

  • Love your app!!! Wondering if the cute phone case is for sale anywhere?!?!

  • Pretty please come to Google Play soon!!!

  • hope I pasted the correct link.. if not, here it is 🙂 http://scrappingcrazy.blogspot.sg/2013/05/fun-app.html

  • i can’t stop playing! THANK YOU for this super fun app! Blogged –> http://scrappingcrazy.blogspot.sg/2013/05/fun-app.html

  • Thank you for a wonderful app. I’ve been using it nonstop since I downloaded it. Love it!

  • Hi ladies, I love your new app, already purchased the add ons too and left fab feedback on itunes. I am sure you are open to feedback of all sorts, so one thing that I would love for you to tweek is when I am resizing font, doodle etc, once I resize it, it locks it to that size not letting me re tweek it. I hope you can put this on the list of the lil bugs to fix.

  • I absolutely adore your website and I am super excited about your new app!!! I can’t wait to play on it for hours!!! You are so inspirational! Simply amazing! Lovely!

  • Congratulations! That’s so exciting. I’m downloading it to my phone right now!


  • Congratulations! 🙂 I’m so happy for you guys, and all your success! <3

  • In love with the app! GREAT job! Now am I the only one that wants a ABM app phone cover? Will you be selling those? I really want one!

  • Love the new app and all the fun options!

    A couple of tech questions/suggestions:

    Was wondering if you’ll also have the option of changing the transparency of words and doodles?

    And if you’ll have the flexibility of an “undo” button instead of completing restarting after adding words and doodles?

    Love you girls – your blog has been on my reading list for awhile!

  • Look at you!!! Downloading it now and pretty sure you’ve just killed the rest of my day because I’m going to be glued to my phone. Congratulations and can’t wait to try it!


  • http://www.instantmommie.com/2013/05/abmapp-dump.html

  • I’m about to switch to an iPhone just so I can use this app!

  • Well done ladies, absolutely love the app! Only one small thing I ran into was I wish there was an easier way to size things down. It’s just a personal preference of mine, I like to keep my text or doodles on the teeny side and have found it a little hard to shrink things down as much as they go. But that’s just me, still love the app anyways! -jb.


  • It’s awesome!

    I just used it to create some cute pics for my Etsy jewelry shop. Thanks Elsie and Emma!!!

  • The app is really cute! But I think you have to pay too much for all the in-app purchases. There are other apps where you have to pay only 99 cents to get a lot more fonts, filters or shapes. I really like you guys (even bought a new iTunes card to be able to buy your app), but it just doesn’t feel right to spend so much for the in-app purchases. I read this in the iTunes reviews as well, so maybe you can do something with this feedback? Congrats with your baby though!:)

  • I look forward to trying it out on my Android hopefully in the future!

  • Super jealous as I’m an Android user and this looks so cute! Shared on my FB page for UK crafty iPhone users xx

  • Are these cute cell phone cases available for the rest of the public to purchase, too?

  • Got the app the second it came out! I love it so far 🙂



  • No Iphone, no fun! Great app, hopefully you’ll launch to android soon.

  • I downloaded the app at lunchtime and I’ve already used it to send fun photos to my sister and friends. I love your blog and read it everyday in sunny South Africa

  • I’m so impressed! You girls are amazing. I got/have/love the app.


  • ooooh! looks like so much fun and i think the icon the cutest thing ever. can’t wait to try it out! nice work!

  • This BLEW UP instagram yesterday I had to go get it! CONGRATS. It’s seriouswly AWESOME and I’m telling everyone about it!!

  • I love the app! I even gave you a little shout-out on my blog. Thanks gals. You ladies are fabulous, as always!!


  • Seriously I am head-over-heels in love with this App!!!
    You ladies have out done yourselves, yet again…
    CONGRATULATIONS awesome little ladies.


  • So awesome! Congratulations! I can’t wait for it to come out on andriod hint, hint!

  • This app is terrific, I cannot wait to create more whimsical images from my phone! I highlighted the new app on my blog today and friends are already writing to tell me they downloaded it, congrats and thanks Elsie and Emma!

  • It looks amazing! Congrats! Will it be available for Androids at all?

  • Having trouble contacting for technical support. My email got returned? Is it contact@rocketmail.co? or com? Confusion!

    My issue is the same as someone above. My photos only save at 320×320 which is reallllllly small. The app also closes sometimes sporadically.

  • Now that I am using it more, some minor glitches and to find out any answers is very difficult. Wonder if you guys could do a tutorial on the specifics. For example if I pick a border & confirm it, go on to picking a word I cannot go back and edit the border or even delete it. Very frustrating once it’s set and you move on to fonts or doodles w/e it’s set for life. On the other hand, could be I’m missing an edit button! Hopefully will hear from web person, but as I said, it was not a click away/easy. Thanks,

  • This is soo cool but i wondered if you could do a Android one (yanno whenever you get the time!! 😉 i know your sooo busy but well done this is really awesome! xx

  • love the app and was so excited to download it and support you gals! yay for pretty pics 🙂

  • Is the app going to be available for Android? I sure hope so!

  • It was fun watching my IG feed blow up with people using the app. You all should really be congratulated! Well done!

  • It was about time the app store got a photo app that adds so much personal touch! You guys rock!

  • i ma addicted to this app! thank you for creating something so beautiful 😉 have just blogged about it here too…hope you like it!

  • I am loving this app so, so much! I already posted a ton of pics on Instagram with it. Oh, and Hayley Williams from Paramore even did a tweet about your app – so cool!


    Feel free to check out my new post and let me know what you think 🙂


  • Ahh…I’m in love already, but I do have one question: is there a way to edit the text or doodles that you’ve added without having to scrap the whole thing and start over?

  • omg hayley williams loves you guys and your app. can i just be you right now please?

    Just wanted to add a voice of support from New Zealand 🙂

  • Love the app 🙂 you two are my biggest inspiration. Keep doing what you do best. You make me more creative and crafty!!!

  • I love it! downloaded it ASAP….. and used it tonight while relaxing at home. it’s about to rain..so the sky is dark, but the temp is warm for the first time in days… so I have my screen door open…. music on, relaxing. your app helped me capture the moment…

    hope this link works: http://instagram.com/p/ZUEfZ4kqBG/ otherwise it’s on twitter under @sunnysgirlsf 🙂

  • I LOVE the new app! I blogged about it and shared some of my creations that I made with your app!

    Here’s the post if you wanna check it out: http://itstaylorbrown.blogspot.ca/2013/05/a-beautiful-mess-app.html

    Honestly, awesome job ladies!!!


  • I downloaded the app and I love it! Great editor for my latest eclectic vacation pictures.

  • I do very much love the new app, I only have one piece of constructive criticism… and that is there is no way to “go back” (Unless I just haven’t figured out how to yet.) For example… if I’m using a phrase and make it orange… and then I put on a border, but realize that my photo would look better with a white phrase, there is no way to fix that without restarting the entire process of finding my photo, editing, etc. I hope that helps whenever it comes to updates or anything 🙂

    Other than that one little thing, I LOVE the app and think it is wonderfully designed… much better than most photo-editing apps 🙂

  • I just bought it and I LOVE IT! What is the filter you used on the flowers in the last picture?

  • I am 100% adcicted!!! I was so excited when I saw it had been released, fantastic work ladies. (and it looks beautiful!!)
    It’s better than I could have ever imagined!

  • Super excited for this app!

    xo Jennifer


  • Congratulations! That’s amazing. Now I can’t wait to get an i-phone just so I can try it out, lol


  • Today in Australia it is number 3 on the iTunes chart, awesome work!

  • So excited to try it out! I’ve been scrolling NON-STOP at all the instas tagged with #abeautifulmess all day long! <3 an inspiration as always, ladies.

  • i love the new app!! and those iphone cases you all have, they’re so cute!

  • GOT IT! and I have never been more stoked for an app!

  • I LOVE LOVE LOVE the app!! You girls should be sooo proud of yourselves for making it sooo great!!

  • Congratulations!!!
    I going to download it right now!!!


  • Loving it! I’m so glad I started reading your blog before this came out!

  • Congratulations on launching the app! I am about to download it now! So exciting. Everything looks fabulous and you ladies are just as equally (if not more) fabulous!

  • Really really cool! Congratulations. Of course I second all motions to get this available for droids through Google Play, but I know just releasing it for Apple was a job in and of itself so enjoy that moment!

  • Downloaded it, I love it! Such cute borders, definitely can’t wait to spice up my Instagram feed!

  • Finally getting around too upgrading to iOs 6 just so I can get this app 🙂 My husband thinks I’m a nut that this app is finally getting be to perform my upgrade. hahaha

  • As you know from twitter I’ve been excited about this since your announcement last week!! It’s my new favourite app! So many choices and I’ve been playing around with it all day!!

    Love it! Congrats again Elsie & Emma 🙂

    Lulu xx


  • I am pretty disappointed about having to pay more for all the good stuff on the app… It is about 9$!! The free stuff doesn’t offer much options… 🙁

  • Love, love, love the app. Downloaded and purchasing all the add ons! I work in mobile where we rely heavily on virtual currency purchases so I understand the monetization strategy with your app and truly appreciate how you give various options to users without forcing an additional purchase. On top of that, I love photo apps and this one is truly unique and fun. You guys should be so proud, as well as your engineer(s) who built. So well done. Will use all the time. Congrats on all your success!

  • LOVE!! I just bought it! Can’t wait to try it out!

  • Congratulations!
    You really did an amazing job! Having so much fun with the app!

  • Hola chicas!
    Hi fromo Mexico! Just got you app!
    And love it!


  • Just downloaded the app, and I can’t wait to use it! Such a good job, guys!

  • Fantastic app! Currently 3rd on the charts down in Australia. Well done 🙂

  • Love it … so fun and easy to use!! Congrats you guys are so creative and fun!

  • yay i am so excited! i have always had a crush on this blog’s aesthetic and i can’t wait to bring it to my instagram. hahaha!

  • This app looks so good ladies, you’re both very talented and your blog brightens my life no end. I so enjoy it.

    Sadly, I’m a BlackBerry 10 girl so I can’t get my clammy mits on this slice of gorgeousness and I’m gutted. I’m sure you’re probably aware, but BlackBerry10 can run ported Android apps if the developer wants to port it across to the platform. I believe it’s relatively simple as it’s the same as the Android app, so no new development needed.
    Perhaos thus is something you would consider when the time comes to release the Android version? Enhance your market a little further.
    Great work 🙂

  • Just wanted to let you know how much I LOVE the app! You guys are insanely inspiring!!!

  • so cute! definitely getting this app today!

    hashtagphoebe on bloglovin

  • Ugh, so jealous of all the Iphone users out there! Call me crazy… but I’m thinking of getting an Iphone now! (okay so I always have been, but this makes me want one even more.) great work girls!

  • Elsie and Emma – congratulations! The app is wonderful and it’s great to see you at #1 (where you should be, by the way!) It’s amazing to see your team of ladies constantly achieving – something that is often looked down on. I dont feel that this is a man’s world as much as we were always told is was… Congrats again 🙂 Rosie x

  • Any chance you can add a doodle of music notes??! or other music doodles?? PLEASE!! =] <3

  • I was so bummed to see that you need iOS 6; I can’t upgrade to the new OS because my iPhone doesn’t have enough room! It looks super cool and I will definitely get it when I upgrade to an iPhone with more memory!

  • I have been playing with the app ALL DAY! I love it, thank you guys for coming up with this, I am pretty much addicted

  • I downloaded it this morning and I’M IN LOVE! This app is amazing.

  • Love it! How much are the add ons? It doesn’t say before it prompts me to purchase.

  • Congratulations!! It looks beautiful!! I will definitely swing over to the itunes store and check it out 🙂 xoxo

  • I am so excited to get the app, I don’t know why I am hanging around here! Of course to tell you how excited I am!
    Can’t wait to play and post results on my blog with a singing review I am sure xxx

  • I love this app and have downloaded it to my iPad and iPhone. My question is I have purchased some of the add ons on my iPad will these go on my phone or will I have to re purchase for the phone??

  • Super cute app! It would nice if you could go back a step as you make the photo, I found I got farther along and realized I wanted to change the size of the picture. (maybe that’s possible and I missed seeing that button?)

    Super fun app though, thank you!

  • Congratulations girls! I can’t even imagine how exciting and gratifying it must feel to have completed this creation and have it be so crazy successful. As a young and enthusiastic artist in the midst of school and all those early life decisions (AAAH!), I cannot tell you how inspiring it has been to hear about the incredible accomplishments you two have made together. You are able to do what you love and explore your passions, taking risks in your career that I dream of taking one day. And have they paid off or what?! I am so inspired by you two. Thanks a billion 🙂

  • WHOA, WOWIE!! Please, please consider making an Android version. I’m dying! Everything looks so great here. :’-( { www.jupiterskye.com }

  • It’s beautiful! I’m completely obsessed!


  • OK, so I can be kinda anti-technology sometimes…hence no iPhone. But… you guys are sort of making me want one! 🙂 I’m definitely going to have to get this when I step into the more up-to-date technological world. Congratulations, you guys. This is a really cool app. What a big accomplishment.

  • Hello from Pridnestrovye! My congratulations! It’s a great step! Will it also be available for Windows? I would love to… )))

    Check out my new outfit post :

  • first of all love the app. i’ve been following your site since it began and can’t get enough. however, it’s a bit misleading that you need to pay per each additional border or background or whatever else you want that isn’t originally included. i would pay like, $5 or $8 for all everything you’ve created, not every time something new gets added….

  • i woke up to instagram being flooded by all of your family members posting a picture using this app!

    im soooo happy for you!!!! all of you!

    i can not wait to get the droid version!

    many congrats!

    <3 <3 <3

  • You did an amazing job with the app! I’m loving seeing all of the creativity in my instagram feed this morning. I can’t wait to use it for blogging!


  • Just installed it and I love it! I love the text I can incorporate into my photos. Wow. so. cool. I can’t wait to print photos off with this for scrap booking!! Thank you Elise and Emma! You two Rock!!

  • Congratulations you guys, that is so exciting!! My phone is a piece of crap so I can’t download it 🙁 but if I get a better phone, I will!! So excited for you!!!

  • I bought it last night when I saw my fellow IG’ers using it! I did NOT want to miss out. 🙂 Love you girls!!

  • Just downloaded it! Fun stuff!
