A Beautiful Mess Photo App

PhotoAfter more than 9 months of concepting, designing, and developing, we're so excited to announce we'll be releasing the A Beautiful Mess photo app, coming soon to iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad! We announced it on Instagram earlier this week and got some great questions we want to address here:Photo 3 copyWhat does the app do?
A few things! We designed it with blogging, scrapbooking and Instagram in mind. So it has a handful of filters modeled after our photography styling here on the blog. It also comes packed with a variety of cute photo borders. You can also use this app to add text in a variety of fonts to your photos. And it has fun, pre-drawn doodles (like arrows and speech bubbles). Lastly, it has a whole bunch of pre-written phrases in my handwriting! Here, take a look:Photo 1 copyPhoto 1 copyWhen will the app be released?
Funny story. 🙂 Had you asked us on Monday, we would've told you it would be released tomorrow. But we've run into some small, technical issues with iTunes store. The app's totally ready to go, but there are some backend issues with the store receiving the app that we're told should be worked out any time now. That said, we're hoping it's only going to set back the release a few days (thinking Monday or Tuesday of next week). But as soon as the issue is resolved and the app is available, we'll announce it immediately!

UPDATE: the app is now available! Check it out herePhoto 2What will it cost?

The app will only cost $0.99, which will get you the fully loaded app with all the features described above. Then, if you want even more options for customizing your photos, we'll have extra packs available for in-app purchase.Photo 3Why isn't it available for Android? Will you be developing that soon?
The short answer is we definitely hope to make an Android version in the near future! As you may or may not know, developing an app is really, really expensive. Even if you're creating a lot of the elements yourself like we did, it can get very pricey. That said, we were faced with a difficult decision when the estimate for developing the app came in, because creating an Android version literally doubled the cost of the project. So hang tight, Android users. We didn't forget about you!! 🙂Photo 4 copyWhat inspired your app's icon design?
The app icon is directly inspired by the Polaroid 1000 Land Camera from the 80s. I've always loved the look of this camera—so much so I got a tattoo of it several years back. 😉 The hot pink makes us smile too!Photo 4Will it be availabe on iTunes Internationally?
Yes! It was very important to us to make available internationally. Fun fact: Over 40% of the ABM readership lives in a country other than the United States. We love our international readers and are so happy to be able to make the app available to you!

What if I have a techincal question or trouble with getting/using the app? Please email our developers right away and they will be able to help: contact AT rocketmobile DOT coPhoto 1So happy we finally get to announce this app. We've put so much work into it. We hope you love it as much as we do! We'll be doing another Q&A about the design and development process in a couple weeks after you all have had a chance to play with the app. xo. Elsie + Emma

  • I can not get my ABM App to work.
    I love it.
    When I go to use it the message back says the developers haven’t update the IOS.
    How can I get to use it …I really do use it all the time and I miss it.
    Please help.

    • I’m sorry, but we retired the original ABM app several years ago. But we have a similar (free) app called A Design Kit that you might check out!

  • Hey Elsie
    I am desperate ABM is not working in its original way anymore!!! I loved loved loved it!!! Is there any chance to bring it back, I would definitely pay for it? Or any chance to make a collage with the new app?
    Hope to hear from you ladies!
    Warmly, Heike

  • I purchased/downloaded this app years ago and have purchased numerous add-ons within the app and recently it stopped working, so I deleted it and wanted to add it back to see if it would fix the problem and now I cannot find the app in the Apple app store in the USA. And when I Google it and go straight through the website, it says “This app is currently not available in your country or region”. What happened and why can’t I download this app back that I already purchased?

    • Hi Caitlin,
      We removed the app from the app store since we have created another (free!) app that is similar and better. It even has brushes you can draw with a stylus or your finger on your photos. 🙂

      We hope you love A Design Kit!

  • I downloaded the app from the apple store in February and have not been able to use it since purchase. I went to the App Store today and it is “no longer available. “. How can this issue be rectified? This was a wasted purchase for me.

  • I have purchased this app many years ago and absolutely love it. Unfortunately I’m experiencing difficulty accessing my photos. The app also closes on me. I have tried deleting the app and restoring my purchases but to no avail. Please help

    • I’m sorry, but we are no longer updating the old ABM app. We do have a newer app called A Design Kit that is similar, with more features. ????

  • Am I being daft or is there a way to change the size of the images etc? Or are they standard size and can’t be reduced or increased? App is brilliant though. Can’t stop ‘writing’ over my photos!

  • Is there a way to use this app with photos on your tablet or pc?

  • Hopefully the android app will be out soon! I must have this! Will download it on my imac tonight when i get home! Looks like my replacement phone will be an iphone lol 🙂 Well done girls! YOU’RE AMAZING!

  • Incredibly awesome! Looking forward to getting my hands on the Android version soon 🙂

  • Can’t wait for the droid version! So envious for this app… from what I’ve seen it’s amazing!!!

  • I love what you can do with your pics …will it be available for androids.

  • Await the android version . Most of the people are now switching to android so hope you consider making it 🙂

  • I have an iPhone 5 and Apple is not letting me download to my phone because the ap size is 50MB. Just got the phone so it’s not loaded up with much. Thoughts or is the app only good for computer use? Thanks!

  • Congrats, I hope the Android app happens because this looks awesome!!

  • Can’t wait for this app on Android!! Hoping we don’t have to wait too long!

  • Just purchased it and all the additional packages!!! I’m so in love!!! I cannot wait for it to come out on Android interface, but for the time being I’m so glad I have an iPad to play with it on!!

  • I love love love your app…

    my -strange- question is: will it be available for a computer too as typos for instance?

    thanks and best regards

  • I have never wanted an iPhone until now. Please, oh please! Make this available for android soon!

  • Can’t wait for you to release this on Android!!! I’ve loved seeing the photos on Instagram in the last week.

  • I am in love. I have had so much fun since I downloaded it a couple of days ago.

    I featured it as a ‘Favorite Find’ on my little blog 🙂


    Beautiful stuff, ladies.

    – brook.

  • I am an Android using, and I am hanging tight! I’ve already seen a bunch of people I follow on Instagram using the app, and it looks great. I can’t wait until I can get it too!

  • PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE ANDROID AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!!!! Your app was a BOOM so now you have the money to do it for android ;-PPPPP

  • Let me know if you do a kick starter to fund an Android app! I would be all over that!

  • Aww I hope the one for android is coming soon! you guys are simply amazing I just found your blog and wow I’m hooked and inspired!

  • How much are the add ons? There isn’t a price on the app or here…

  • Congratulations! I have recently discovered your blog thanks to Instagram and I love it! I love you! 🙂
    I red you from Spain and I will download the APP when I arrive ta home.


  • I simply wiehsd to thank you very much again. I am not sure the things that I would have undertaken in the absence of the tips and hints shared by you regarding this industry. It had become a frightening circumstance in my view, however , discovering your expert technique you treated it made me to cry with contentment. I’m just happy for this help and pray you are aware of an amazing job that you’re getting into training men and women thru your webpage. More than likely you have never come across all of us.

  • Thank you so much! I just downloaded the app – it is really awesome!! Love your blog, it makes me smile every morning when I read it! I am from Cape Town but live in Germany and have just started my own blog, you are such a great inspiration!

  • Will this be available for Windows Phone? I want it so bad 🙁

  • SO glad you are doing it for android. i’ve got app envy!!

  • So great! I have an android and can’t wait to be able to download this app!

  • Please hurry with the Android version! This is truly a fun and unique app and I would love to be able to use it.


    You know what else would be awesome? Making it available for Android too!!!

  • congratulations! I can’t wait for this to come out for android users!

  • Congrats. This is awesome. I’m charging my iPad (which I hardly use cause I love my Air) just so I can download it to use it while I wait patiently… (ok not very patiently) for the android version for me phone 🙂

  • Dear Elsie & Emma,

    please please please create an Andriod version otherwise i will be unhappy every day :’-( The app looks indredible!! I am very excited!
    Your both a great!

  • Please please PLEASE make it available for us Android users ASAP!! I would buy this thing a million times over 🙂

    Congratulations! 🙂

  • I’m using Android and I’ll wait tight for you guys to manage it!!! Thanks!!!

  • Please please make an app for BlackBerry!!! It looks amazing! 🙂

  • patiently awaiting the android version… it’s a bummer that we are always last. not everyone is an Apple junkie :/

  • Boo hop I need for android…… I can’t have an I phone for work! Have the Google nexus ..please make for android soon!!!

  • i caint wait for it to come out on android!!:) please hurry!

  • Can’t wait for the android version!

    XO Nat
    [Nat in Love]

  • Sounds awesome! So sad though I can’t use it on my android….

  • This looks amazing!! Looking forward to the android version!!

  • I wish i had an iphone … I can’t wait for the android version to come out!! Hopefully it does &very soooon!

  • I am just wondering how much the extra packs are in the app? I can;t seem to find where it specifies this?

  • The app is great – but the in app need to buy more fonts etc is a bit much. Especially as there’s no information telling you how much they are.

  • Just received my first iPhone; (5). Can’t wait to download your app! By the way.. I’m one of your 40% foreign readers! Greetings from the Netherlands.

  • Wow it really looks amazing! I hope you develop it for Android because I know I would definitely buy it!

  • So excited. I just left iPhone for Samsung Galaxy so I’ll be waiting on that Android version.

  • I’m totally in love with your new app! I downloaded it this morning, and used it straight away for one of my blog posts today: http://exexp.at/post/50412987268/make-your-own-dandelion-sirup

  • Well done on an amazing looking app – you ladies can be very proud! Please keep your readers updated as to when/if it will be available on Android.

  • I guess I don’t really see what is supposed to set this app apart from the crowd. There are loads of apps that put text/objects on photos brillinatly. The same is true of frames/borders. And, while I hope your filters bring something unique to the table, you can get snapseed for free which is a great editing option. Personally I tend to use Afterlight over snapseed, but it’s still a solid choice.

    I’m not trying to be mean, I’d just like to know what sets your app apart in an already oversaturated market?

  • Just downloaded it & awesomeeee app!
    Congrats ABM! 🙂


  • Have you considered funding the android version via kickstarter? I know you siad its an expensive process but if we all pre-fund you that could make it a possibility! After you’ve had a breather of course. Well done Elsie!

  • I was wandering what would be your futur amazing project and I am thrilled to ear that it is a photo app!!! Cant wait to get it and congrats for it, I am totally sure it will be a success!

    Olive xox

  • How exciting!! You guys are always full of fun ways to brand ABM & get all us-readers to be more creative!!!

  • This is so exciting! Congrats on launching your own app – it sounds super cool. I love the little handwritten details and I will definitely be downloading it once it’s available in the iTunes store.

  • This is so exciting! You girls are always good for a surprise. 🙂

  • Looks fantastic but I just bought a Samsung 4. Hope to get apps for us too : )

  • This is incredible – what an achievement, congratulations!!! I can’t wait for the app to be released and I will definitely be purchasing it. And blogging about it!
    Am really happy for you, good job!

  • Congrats!! Ill cannot wait to purchase it!! Anything you girls touch or are in the vicinity of is beautiful!!

  • I noticed that some of your good friends got an Iphone case! Is it going to be possible to purchase one, or were they just intended for close friends? They are to DIE for!

  • big congratulations! i cant wait to buy it and enjoy it!!! xx

  • good luck!


  • woohoo, can’t wait! I mean Instagram is nice for my pics but this will make my blog and scrapbook pics look so much more “me” (even though it’s you who designed it!). Thanks girls, again and again said, you’re an inspiration.


  • Ooooooh, so cute! One can never have enough photo apps! This will be great for my Etsy shop stuff. Looking fwd to checking it out. Best of luck.

  • How awesome! Unfortunately I don’t have an iphone. Any chance it will be available for Android?

  • i am superrr excited for this!! cant waittt !

  • How fun! I would definitely pay a little extra for the android version!

  • So excited for this! Way to go ladies!

  • Eek! I am too excited for this app. I do not know how you girls find time for all of the wonderful things you do – you’re amazing! xxx

    Alice Barton ♥ TheMowWay

  • Knowing that you two are pretty much photo + instagram queens, I know this is going to be a good app. I can’t wait for it to come out! I love the idea of adding text, frames, and such. Congrats, you two!

    Happy Friday!

    Jenny ♥

    I’m totally in love with your blog, the way you write, your pictures, your stories. I guess just with you!
    Can’t wait! You girls are great!

    xo Nicole

  • This s so incredibly exciting! I would buy it without question.

    Kindness is the best accessory,

  • So amazing, I cant wit to get it!



  • I Can’t wait! I live in US but I’m moving to Brasil, I’m glad I can take my app with me! Thank you ladies!! <3

  • Oh geez. This is so exciting. I am a bit addicted to photo editing apps. Can’t wait to explore all the features of yours! Thanks for working so hard on this!




  • very cool. I’ll make my boyfriend get it on his ipad 😉

  • Ah can’t wait to use it! If you’re looking for a company for the Android version (or someone to later update the iOS version), please consider checking out Appek Mobile Apps (www.appekapps.com) where I’m a development intern! It’s an up and coming start up with a creativity level and young vibe that would perfectly match ABM 🙂 They really support women developers in a largely male-dominated field, which is awesome! Plus, as a huge fan of the blog/you girls, I’d be so excited to work at a company you’re working with! Please think about it 🙂

  • oh man, we have to wait until next week? 😛 I am so excited about this app! I’m going to use it constantly. way to go girls!

  • Fantastic. Can’t wait to download the new APP. Congrats – that’s huge!

  • Congrats ladies!!!! This app is super rad, and I need to get an iphone ASAP!!! 🙂

  • THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!! For creating yet another way of expressing our creativity and being able to share it with you girls!! You both (and the rest of your team) are amazing, and so inspiring!! THANK YOU ONCE MORE!!

  • Congratulations!! This is SO exciting & I can’t wait to buy my ABM app!

  • This looks like so much fun! One more reason why I miss the App Store! Love my giant Note, so if you ever want to bring this to Android devices, I’d be ready to purchase. Or maybe I should just come back to the iPhone… Either way, congratulations! Great news!! xx

  • Fantastic! I can’t wait to download it. You have such lovely handwriting x

  • I am so stoked for this app. Camera apps are my absolute weakness and I have been trying to cut down on the paid ones the last year or so but there is a special place for the ABM app in my photography app folder for sure.
    The preview looks great! So excited 😀

  • Now I really wish I have an iPhone! Guess, I have to wait for it to come out for Android… 🙂

  • oh this is so cool! i have a few photo editing apps and none of them do exactly what i want… i’m looking forward to trying out yours!!

  • This is great! I really you hope you’ll have one for android too!

  • AWSOME! I CANNOT WAIT. This is so exciting. I never buy apps, I always use free ones, but I will DEFINITELY be buying this. EEEEEEK 😀

  • Wooooow! Sound great! But I only have Android… I will wait 🙁 but my sister has an Ipod, I will ask 1000000 times! Hope she say yes 😀



  • Sadly, I’m an Android user, but I’m thinking about purchasing an iPhone soon, so yay! I’ll get to use your app, too!
    Congratulations you two, I bet it will be a huge success!

    xo Julia

  • Congratulations, ladies! I will be waiting with baited breath for the Android version!! You better tell us AS SOON as it’s available. 😉

  • I know that a lot goes into it, but please consider developing a version for Windows Phones! Apple is playing catch-up to Windows now, meaning that Windows is officially the top OS on the block 😉 For those of us who already have it, we need your app too! 😀

  • Congrats – how FAB!!

    I will def be purchasing your APP as soon as it is released!

  • Noo.. this idea is something genial!
    I can’t wait to get it.. exciting! Good stuff girls.. you never stop surprising!! 😉


  • Oh my gosh. I cant wait for this app!

  • When will it be available on Android? apps always come out for the iPhone first.. super lame.

  • While I am an Android user, I could not be happier for you guys!! So exciting that this little baby of yours is coming out!! I hope it does get released for Android some time, but either way, it’s in the world and that’s awesome!

  • Looks like it is going to be awesome! Can’t wait to try it out! 🙂

  • I’m really looking forward to trying this out in person. It’s a perfect fit for ABM. I’m sure it’ll be a big hit!

  • aahh can’t wait to try this out! love the borders and the arrows! i’m so excited for you guys!

  • I am so so excited! Will be downloading it as soon as it is released!

  • I can’t wait for this app! I love y’alls style, I’m sure its going to be a lot of fun. The majority of the camera apps I use are because I saw them reviewed on this blog. Thanks guys 🙂

  • OMG, I cannot wait for its release. It will be so awesome to create in abeautifulmess style. CONGRATULATIONS as well on this momentous occasion!!!!

  • Seriously, this is so exciting. Both for you guys and everyone who will get to use it. I feel like you know you’ve made it when you’ve developed a successful app (which yours will be)

  • Way too cool of an idea. I can’t wait to download it and fiddle around. I’m gonna say it quite possibly will be better than instagram. Congrats!!

  • So excited to use this, and so excited for ABM for moving forward and expanding your brand! <3

  • I can hardly wait for the release of this app! Hoping to start my blog in the upcoming months and can’t wait to see what sort of effects this app will be able to bring to my photos! Congratulations ladies!

  • UGH! So cool and so so exciting. Unfortunately I’m an Android girl.

    Juliette Laura

  • I am so excited for you and for this app! I can’t wait to buy it as soon as it’s available.
    You guys are truly and inspiration and really show the rest of us that following your dreams is possible!

  • Awesome!! Your creativity never fails to inspire me. Please never stop!!

  • Good luck with the launch ladies. It’s so exciting. My hope for you is that you make so much in the first week you can pay for the development of an android version right away so I can buy it too 😉
    Seriously though it’s awesome to see you branching out in this way – it’s a whole new creative direction. Might I suggest you consider building a browser version as well? For Chrome? Would be super awesome to use for blogging and then it’s cross platform too 🙂

  • Oh my goodness I am so excited. When I read you were working on an app, I was hoping for a phone app. What an incredible opportunity.

  • This is really awesome, what an amazing development for ABM!! It’s really something to watch this brand grow and expand…Congrats!!

  • Have you thought about doing a kickstartr campaign to fund it for android? Would love to be able to use it -looks awesome!

  • Very cool idea for an app! I don’t have a smart phone, but boy if I did…


  • I am pumped for this and will be watching for it’s release. Can’t wait to start playing around with the app’s features. Cheers Ladies!

  • This looks amazing! Can’t wait to get it as soon as it comes out 😀 … will you send us a reminder when it’s officially out? P.S., I don’t think that you mentioned it but is the name of the app, “A Beautiful Mess Photo App?”

  • The pictures look so fun! I will be buying it for sure- and I NEVER purchase apps.

  • im beyond happy but it sucks that im going to have to wait to use this because im an android user.

    hopefully soon.

    because as many iphone users there are….there are even more droid users and i can say were all pretty upset.

    …good thing is i get more time to save my $.99 LOL!!!

Lots of luck and can’t wait to download!
