If anything can be said about last week, it is that we had an explosive and ceaseless flow of big news, all lined up one after the other like cannon fire off the side of a ship! Changes are in the air as we continue to steer PicsArt into deeper waters at a breakneck pace, ever chasing the horizon of our future and its limitless possibilities.

We released the March issue of PicsArt Monthly, a new Easter Frames Package, made headlines with another stellar review, and interviewed Jeff Haynes, a true heavy-weight photographer from Chicago. What’s more we announced 2 new tags that you will definitely want to read more about. When things move this fast, however, the water can get pretty rough, so last week we did not hold our usual contests as we are retooling our network to be stronger and faster. Read all of the big news bellow to take a good final glance at the major events of last week.

Most Popular Photo on Facebook and Google+

This amazing shot, captured by Seung Ki Song (@scm1125), of a cloudy shoreline extending before a coastal industrial plant was the most popular shot on Facebook and Google+ last week. Seung’s photo earned 1,127 likes and 25 shares with its beautiful and frightening blend of nature and industrialism, making even the flaming pollution rising from the plant’s spires seem somehow enchanting. The picture is so vivid, you feel as though you step right into it.

The User Favorite from Twitter

The favorite shot from Twitter equaled Seung Ki Song’s shot in brilliance. This black and white shot was shared by Aycan Kalem (@aycankk) and captures an old fashioned model on a beach, her black dress and dark glasses commanding the focus of the photo on the sheer strength of their boldness.

User Feedback From Google Play

Here are some of things users are saying about PicsArt on Google-Play:

Scott Davis:

bARTender This was my first photo/art app. I knew nothing about any of it. It was a lucky choice! I am an app junkie,50 art/Photo apps, but if I had to pick one, it would be this one. I can do about everything that other apps do.

Andrew Koenig:

Love it! I’m not very creative, so I’m sure this is an amazing tool for the right person, but I feel like a pro when I play with this app

Nichole Franklin:

Awesome App!!! I’ve been creating my art on a windows based pc, with a cintique tablet forever, and now am using a samsung galaxy note pro 12.2 and am so impressed with how both the tablet and this app, has made my work flow go sooooo wonderfully.. I can do just about anything on this program, from my mixed media digital art- to painting and drawing and so on.. WOW.. Very Impressed… Thanks so much!!!

Jayde Caslin: 

Amazing picture app Never get bored! This app is wonderful and makes pics more beautiful than they already were!!

Marco Trevisan: 

RIGHT ON!!! Absolutely recommendable! Especially for those with some previous experience and using a powerful camera, guess that on mini devices, given the abounding options, might be confusing; fits great on Xperia S lt 26 I and great to have so much in just one app merci!

A Google User:

The Best Photo Editor There Is! PERIOD! PicsArt is the cream of the crop and no other photo editor can compare to it. Truly a wonderful experience, smooth and with a lot of options. The only thing I would like is if size of photo wouldn’t be cropped when customizing but, having said that, you can’t go wrong using this application. A+++++++++
