A Beautiful Mess App Update!

New art from #abeautifulmess
We recently released A Beautiful Mess 1.06!!! What's new? We added fonts, doodles and backgrounds to the base packaged (meaning, everyone gets them for free when you update).We also found a vector vs. bitmap efficiency on the backend to reduce the app's file size without reducing its quality (in other words, you won't have to be connected to wifi to update).A Beautiful Mess app!Photos clockwise from left: @audrey_efi, @narchos, @kristenuous, @carlabonafonte

We've been loving all your new creations from the #abeautifulmess! Keep 'em coming! And if you love using the app, please leave us a review on this newest version in the App Store. xo. Elsie & Emma

P.S. We're moving full steam ahead on buliding it out for Android. We were originally hoping for an end of summer release, but the ideas grew. And to ensure the best user experience, we're now shooting for early/mid-October, but we will definitely keep you posted. 

  • I have been checking Android Market everyday for this app. October 1st and I am so excited to hopefully see this app. Hurry (in the most kind way possible), seriosly hurrrrrry!

  • Oh great! I have a post-it reminder on my monitor and have been checking back for the android update. I have revised my post-it to ‘October’. Can’t wait! 🙂

  • I have no idea how to reach you guys!! And I’ve always believed in supporting small businesses but I am a bit no Imbreally disappointed.. Now there are lots of other apps and yes yours brings your art work which is who I was gun ho!! I honestly can’t complain about the app it’s self too much.. It def could be way way way easier to use.. On selecting doodles n going from one thing to another… It should flow just like your filters and the filters as ppl who are always about photography n tips n a book out now. It’s hard to believe the filters were lacking.. But my biggest waste of money way paying yes the 99 cent for each add on.. I couldn’t wait but after buying Add ons to two other equally great apps that do the sane n then some I paid 99 cents fir their add ons n I suddenly gas buyer remorse from buying yours cause I got way less for the cost!! I was fine w the app happy even had plenty if my friend who have bought ur app.. But the add ons really need to be re thought.. I don’t know if it’s cause if the app building company you went w but it’s def. a rip off.. N I know you wouldn’t want to do that but how can u fix it? I’m stuck I bought them n I’m stuck out of money that wasnt worth spending!! I will still use your app but I won’t be buying add ons again.. I like all 3 apps I’ve got all 3 bring different things n in time maybe your will get better.. Bit for now I am disappointed.. And before ppl start harping I’m not posting the other apps n I could.. I’m not bashing ABM cause I believe that this is a newbie thing and sadly they didnt know that there were others offer better.. For add ons at the sane price s I wanted was more.. Then when I tried to leave a review on the App Store apple just blocks my review n say all u see is the great revues and the great reviews are coming from ppl who have only bought the app n that’s it.. N thru know its a work in progress.. So don’t bash me.. Unless u bought each add on and then u can say what I want cause then u know what I got!! Emma and Elsie and the rest if the crew I would of liked a way to reach u w out putting it out here.. I don’t want negative ugly comments towards you or me!! But I do think you need to re think your add ons.. I’m am def.. Not happy Ty and wish there was a way to make me happy but there’s not I’m stuck w it and its add ons that I won’t use some of us at single don’t need the love n mr n mrs stuff I know u both just got married but u need to think last that n what is going on in ur life.. Some great quotes and fun play on words would be a good idea but def don’t go w the lazy word ppl r using when texting that makes the sound like they r in kindergarten. I hope to get a response but I won’t put my info here for fear that ppl might think so horrible n attack me.. When I’m just stating what others have in hope that u will really look into this and if unwantbto know ur 2 other competitors plz message me.. Cause they have it pretty much figured out and maybe seeing that can help you.. Your will always be different cause your art work is different,. I can easily edit n just bring it over if u choose to not focuse on editing w filters!! Ty for hearing or I hope you see this!! Plz any friends plz plz show this to them cause how else can I reach them?? Thxs again God Bless

  • So excited for the android version! I keep looking at the wonderful pictures you post here and just drooling.

  • Love the app! Thanks for all the updates. I use it almost everyday and have two suggestions. Firstly, please make it so that you can hit “return” while typing text. This will help in being able to have vertical text. Also, is there another way to decrease the size of text other than pinching it? Sometimes you can’t get it as small as you would like to on the iphone. That’s it! LOVE it ladies. xoxo

  • oooh really hoping for early october on the android version. Just in time for my birthday 😉

  • Can’t wait! I’m so jealous if all the beautiful posts I see on instagram. Just looking at all the creative things you can do with it, gets my mind all frantic with ideas .

  • I wish you would have a link to the app on iTunes. Maybe it’s on your home page and I just don’t see it…

  • Moved from Apple to Andriod and I’m absolutely itching for A Beautiful Mess back!! Can’t wait!!
