  • good, but needs improvements. Jul 12, 2020

    By 𝖈𝖚𝖙𝖊𝖛𝖔𝖎𝖉𝖘🧚🏻‍♀️
    Good app, but the stuff that cost money is too expensive, some people don’t have that type of money, you know? for me, i don’t have that type of money, and it’d be helpful if less things were costing money. because i don’t have money, and even if i did, i wouldn’t cost that much money on the app. i thought this app would be way easier to use, but most of my edits take 2 days because i still haven’t tried to use keyframes. people say my edits are good, but i only sometimes use qr codes because it’s easier than being confused for hours trying to make an edit. please change the prices! i don’t have that type of money, and neither do a lot more people. it’s really expensive, and i’m planning on buying it, but that’ll take a long time. whenever there’s a new update, mine doesn’t update! it stays as the old one & it’s annoying. i’ve been looking through the bad reviews, and other people have been saying the same thing. other than that, it’s kind of easy to use, especially qr codes. i’ve been using video star for 3 years, and i’ve been using it free. i’ve learned how to edit on the app, and i’m so proud of how good i can edit now. i’ll purchase the paid stuff maybe later. but thank you for making an amazing editing app! i hope this review was helpful to other people who are willing to download this app <3 🧚🏻‍♀️💕
  • Great! But difficult Aug 12, 2019

    Videostar has worked well in the time I’ve had it but there are a few major and noticeable flaws that make the app extremely frustrating and hard to use. The biggest part is,, for the love of god PLEASE add an undo button. I can not express how annoying it is having to restart and entire clip because I messed up an effect and destroy all the transitions and effects and motions on that clip just because my finger slipped. An undo button would save me and a lot of other editors time. Another thing I noticed is when I first got videostar I didn’t use it for months because it’s really confusing? Mostly nothing has directions or labels and the tutorials didn’t help me at all,, there is also just a lot of stuff crammed into small spaces on screen especially for iOS,, scroll bars and pages would be a nice thing to have and tool bars/easy access buttons for certain packs would be nice. Note this is coming from somebody who has not bought anything in this app and probably won’t in the future cuz I’m broke- But other than those few issues, I’ve had a lot of good outcomes when using videostar, and since I started using it I’ve improved in editing and gained some popularity! So overall a good app!

    This app is amazing!! I have been using it for nearly a year now and my edits have improved a ton. I’ve really started getting noticed on Instagram since I’ve started VS and a lot of people think I use Ae?! I see some complaining about how confusing it is, but honestly once you get used to it, the app is super easy to use and very fun. However I do suggest making it easier to mask. This option in Video Star is very tedious and I’ve recently started using a separate app to mask photos. Other than that this app is great once you make all the payments you need. Totally worth the money. Edit: K so a lot of people are suggesting making all the packs free and uhhh...they can’t? How else will VideoStar make money? If they don’t make money there will be no way for them to pay their employees and when they don’t pay their employees, they won’t be able to make the app better and cooler than it already is. “But they should be doing that with their own money and not money from their customers.” Excuse you, but that’s how businesses work? Businesses make money from consumers and use that money to improve their product. Where else will VS get money if they do as you suggest and “use their own”? Makes no sense.
  • THIS APP IS AMAZING!! May 17, 2020

    By Harry Potter madness
    This app is absolutely amazing, I made loads of edits on my instagram account and people loved them even though I only got the free version. People are complaining that is confusing but it’s really not when you get the hang of it! But I have one problem is it possible that can you make the all access pass free? I understand that you need to make a money of it but my parents won’t allow me to buy the pro some people can’t afford the pro anyway. Even though I can make really great edits with the free version I would love to edit on multi layer, and you already make enough money from people that download the video star so don’t understand why you would need a subscription? This app would be utterly amazing if it was completely free. But other then that is a wonderful app! I absolutely love using video star I got so many compliments on my edits! But the only problem I got is that the all access passes are to expensive so I’m asking nicely that if it’s possible for you to make them free. It you can’t then I would rather prefer to use funimate or alight motion and all that other stuff that I don’t really want to use. But other then that is a great app that I love to use!💜
  • Great results / hard to use Mar 15, 2021

    By Bejayoharen
    Video star produces fantastic results and I really like it, but it’s a steep learning curve and fairly unintuitive for new users. Some particular problems I still have: ⭕️when recording, I’d like to be able to just record a bunch of takes, but it always exits me to the edit screen where I’m a few taps away from recording again. I’d also like some ability to quickly annotate my takes — either with text or just stars. ⭕️All of the destructive operations, like splitting scenes, are unnecessarily destructive; it’s silly and annoying that you can’t undo that. ⭕️There are a lot of effects — most of them useless — so rather than forcing the user to go to another screen to categorize them into visible and hidden, I’d like to see them put in categories by video star.⭕️ It’s way too hard to crop and do cross-dissolves. How anyone would know to go to multilayer to do this is beyond me. ⭕️Multilayer is, however, really awesome. I often edit my whole video in that — I wish it supported different compositing modes and I wish it were nondestructive because having to redo a bunch of work to make one tweak is very frustrating. ⭕️Finally, it would be really cool if this app had official support for one of the many smart gimbals on the market (maybe it does already?)
  • Good app but a few problems Dec 26, 2018

    By Unicorn1skylar
    So video star is a really good app but I have two problems with it and that is the in app purchases and the song choices. So first of all the in app purchases there are really cool effects that will cost money and I understand that they need to make money, but it gets really annoying when you click on an effect and then realize that you need the plus membership and that costs money. I am not saying that they should get rid of the in app purchases but they should move them into a separate category so people know that it costs money. The second problem is the song choices. Now they have pretty good song choices but they only post to them once a week and it gets really annoying if you don’t have iTunes songs you can’t do it but I’ve seen that on musically/TickTock that you can search up a song and they will most likely have it because they have almost every song so I was hoping that they could do the same thing that musically/TickTock does and have almost every song because it will make it much easier to use this app and a lot more fun for the people to use it. I hope you guys read this review and fix the problems that I have suggested. Thanks
  • MY REVIEW Jun 18, 2021

    By coralinev on Funimate! <3
    I’ve been using VideoStar for almost a year now, or I believe that it has been a year. The app is great!!! If you use all the effects you are given you could make such a wonderful edit. However, on the topic of effects, the new update with the text effects isn’t the best. The text effects are choppy even with decent graphs. I’m not sure if putting it on a longer clip would do it justice but so far I don’t find it worth spending your money on. You could’ve added text explosion or something that you see in edits regularly. It would save editors a LOT of time. You should also consider getting some decent turbulences. Not the old turbulences, I’m talking about GOOD ones that look somewhat like AE. No matter how hard you try with the turbulences provided it still is not the best. Other than the lack of effects that people are asking for, the app is overall great. I would highly recommend it for ANY editors. Whether you’re beginner, intermediate, or experienced, this is right for you!!! If you are a beginner I would start on apps such as Funimate or apps that teach you the basics. Before you get on VS you have to learn at least what keyframes are and how to properly use them, or wing it. We don’t care.

    By b* all the names are taken
    I have been using video star for a few years now and overall I love to use it and make edits with it. There are a few things that could be fixed, though. Over the past few months, I’ve found easy ways to download long videos to my phone to make a video edit. When I use the app Mega to download videos I have to add those videos to an album in my camera roll to upload it to my video star project which just adds more steps. There are also a few glitches I noticed. When I’m making a video edit sometimes the screen just goes white in the middle of the edit and when I save the edit to my camera roll it’s just a frozen screen. I don’t know why this happens but it has happened to me quite a bit. Also, I tried to watch one of my video edits but as soon as I got to the second part it automatically paused itself. And when I saved it to my camera roll half the edit was gone. Also, when I have been editing for a long period sometimes the entire app freezes. For example, I could be trying to create a multi-layer clip and it would freeze in the middle of loading. Other than that I enjoy using this app and I will continue to use it.
  • AMAZING APP!! Jan 28, 2021

    By jakamals
    first of all, I have been using this app for a while now! I think since Feb 2020! at first I wasn’t used to it but now since I got vsp and have been practicing I have gotten better! I have a tiktok account which now has 13k followers! all thanks to your app! reason why I’m not giving it a full 5 star is because I thinks there should be some changes! 1: can you make AT LEAST the first two layers free? I think it would be amazing for the people with vs free! so they can put their watermark, etc. 2. maybe make some more transitions free?! There aren’t that much good transitions for free! and it kind of takes a long time finding one for free ( a good one ). it would also be better for the people with vsf! or with people that don’t want to pay just for better transitions. otherwise, videostar is an amazing app! it’s useful and I love it! it distracts me when I’m stressed and stuff! it’s one of my hobby’s! even one of my edits blew up on tiktok! all thanks to ur app! I would have never made a tiktok account or have known anything about editing if video star wasn’t around! thank you otherwise and have a great day!
  • Frame rate Jun 8, 2021

    By dabber master
    I mainly edit dancers (more specifically kpop) and I’ve been in love with video star’s velocity and mixtor. However, in the recent update, it gives you the ability to choose between keeping the original frame rate or modify it using mixtor. Keeping the original makes the velocity very choppy, while modifying it is smooth but glitches and has random black patches. Many of the videos I edit force me to choose one of these options, and I want to continue using videostar to create amazing edits like I have in the past. I am hoping the next update fixes this issue because up until this point, videostar has been my #1 for velocity. Edit: thank you so much for fixing it! I only have one problem and it’s that my all access pass suddenly becomes inactive at times so I would have to restart my phone and then reload to gain access back to my pass. Not a huge problem but a little tedious. Edit #2: The velocity is once again choppy :/ I’m not sure if it’s my phone causing the glitches because I have friends who don’t have the same problems but it the choppy glitch game back with lasted update

  • Expensive Apr 30, 2020

    By JulietSamoyeds
    I’ve tried looking up “free edit tutorials” because for the LIFE of me I cant find a decent free transition. This app from what I can tell is almost completely USELESS if you don’t want to sell your soul for decent transition, or just make getting pro less expensive or a one time payment. Plenty of people use this app and is probably the most popular editing app on the App Store. I spent hours looking up tutorials on how to use transitions in free mode because my parents won’t let me get the pro mode. With how useless this is as free I’d be better off using apps like funimate or something like that. I’d be fine with there being a pro if you actually gave some INTERESTING things to people who can’t pay for pro. Every transition I tapped on said something like “you can have all of these for the CHEAP price of 5.99 a month!” Or something like that. You can get a one-time payment bitzen account on BitLife for less then that and playing that doesn’t promote their app even more, while pro is expensive here and since the people who are making the edits are forced to have pro, they all look good and are posting them, making people want to get that app, making yalls customers grow even more. I guess it’s just kinda annoying that I can do absolutely nothing with this app, when I’ve used it in the past on friend’s phones and such and had good experiences
  • Good! but couple things May 12, 2020

    By peanut butter pup
    Hi ! I just came out here to say that I have been using Videostar with one layer for over 2 years. I haven’t gotten any better because you can’t add overlays, colorings, more then 1 layer for the free version. I have asked my parents multiple times if I can get it for Christmas my birthday or some day. They think it’s a waste of many and I can’t participate in the All access pass giveaways either :( please please put into consideration to have QR code’s that involve multiple layers and have more then 4 or 5 layers. I have watched videos after videos on how to make your edits better with overlays, but some of them require a ton of overlays. I really want to make my edits better by QR code’s with multiple layers and just using more layers, because I cannot get Videostar multilayer pack in any other way. Please put these thoughts into consideration. I get that you need to get money off of the app from packs but all I am asking is the multilayer with working QR code’s that have more layers for FREE. You can get money off of Videostar by more adds of other packs as well, I just want Videostar, multilayer pack for free, or I am afraid I can’t use it very well. :( please please put these things into consideration, know that probably lots of people are thinking the same.
  • Read before downloading Jun 15, 2021

    By Blossom_Boy147
    This is literally an app made for buying. Almost everything has to be paid for and you have no free will. You cant even put in your own lighting QR for free anymore!! Its worthless and should not be downloaded. It does absolutely nothing right and as a person with shaky hands, the transition sliders are just way to hard. I don’t understand why this app is so desperate for money. I get it that people need money but why not make something like a gofundme or something!! Or have the creators become content creators. The fact that every good thing needs to be payed for is dumb. Stick to CapCut and CuteCut. They get the job done. And in CuteCut you can crop the video so you don't get the little watermark, and CapCut doesn't even have one!! This app has no use but to annoy its users. Even CapCut lighting effects are better than this. Ive tried this app so many times and every time I do it has just gotten worse. This app doesn't even need 3 stars. It doesn't need any. Not everyone has money to buy subscriptions for their effects. And if your phone memory is wiped then gl getting your money back. Absolutely garbage mate. Completely mad to think someone will pay to put in their own effects!!!

Many of the videos I edit force me to choose one of these options, and I want to continue using videostar to create amazing edits like I have in the past. I am hoping the next update fixes this issue because up until this point, videostar has been my #1 for velocity. Edit: thank you so much for fixing it! I only have one problem and it’s that my all access pass suddenly becomes inactive at times so I would have to restart my phone and then reload to gain access back to my pass. Not a huge problem but a little tedious. Edit #2: The velocity is once again choppy :/ I’m not sure if it’s my phone causing the glitches because I have friends who don’t have the same problems but it the choppy glitch game back with lasted update

    I’ve been using the app for a few years and can safely say it is one of the best. I tried getting AE but it was very complicated. Unlike AE, Videostar is a lot more attentive to making the app as easy to use as possible. If you do it right, you can make an AE-like edit that’s barely any different than making one on AE itself. The app has multiple things you can do for free, but they added a watermark recently that upset a lot of people. I believe it was a good thing they added it, as those who are complaining were using pro effects for free without acknowledging that they are ripping off the app’s creators. If you are reading the recent reviews, know that they are all mostly fake and bias towards free creators. If you want actual, legitimate reviews that actually makes sense in correlation to how the app is run and how it makes it so easily accessible and usable, then read the top reviews. They hold more truth than most of the recent reviews made by kids who feel and entitlement to have everything free.
  • good, but needs improvements. Jul 12, 2020

    Good app, but the stuff that cost money is too expensive, some people don’t have that type of money, you know? for me, i don’t have that type of money, and it’d be helpful if less things were costing money. because i don’t have money, and even if i did, i wouldn’t cost that much money on the app. i thought this app would be way easier to use, but most of my edits take 2 days because i still haven’t tried to use keyframes. people say my edits are good, but i only sometimes use qr codes because it’s easier than being confused for hours trying to make an edit. please change the prices! i don’t have that type of money, and neither do a lot more people. it’s really expensive, and i’m planning on buying it, but that’ll take a long time. whenever there’s a new update, mine doesn’t update! it stays as the old one & it’s annoying. i’ve been looking through the bad reviews, and other people have been saying the same thing. other than that, it’s kind of easy to use, especially qr codes. i’ve been using video star for 3 years, and i’ve been using it free. i’ve learned how to edit on the app, and i’m so proud of how good i can edit now. i’ll purchase the paid stuff maybe later. but thank you for making an amazing editing app! i hope this review was helpful to other people who are willing to download this app <3 🧚🏻‍♀️💕

    Videostar has worked well in the time I’ve had it but there are a few major and noticeable flaws that make the app extremely frustrating and hard to use. The biggest part is,, for the love of god PLEASE add an undo button. I can not express how annoying it is having to restart and entire clip because I messed up an effect and destroy all the transitions and effects and motions on that clip just because my finger slipped. An undo button would save me and a lot of other editors time. Another thing I noticed is when I first got videostar I didn’t use it for months because it’s really confusing? Mostly nothing has directions or labels and the tutorials didn’t help me at all,, there is also just a lot of stuff crammed into small spaces on screen especially for iOS,, scroll bars and pages would be a nice thing to have and tool bars/easy access buttons for certain packs would be nice. Note this is coming from somebody who has not bought anything in this app and probably won’t in the future cuz I’m broke- But other than those few issues, I’ve had a lot of good outcomes when using videostar, and since I started using it I’ve improved in editing and gained some popularity! So overall a good app!
  • Good app but a few problems Dec 26, 2018

    By Unicorn1skylar
    So video star is a really good app but I have two problems with it and that is the in app purchases and the song choices. So first of all the in app purchases there are really cool effects that will cost money and I understand that they need to make money, but it gets really annoying when you click on an effect and then realize that you need the plus membership and that costs money. I am not saying that they should get rid of the in app purchases but they should move them into a separate category so people know that it costs money. The second problem is the song choices. Now they have pretty good song choices but they only post to them once a week and it gets really annoying if you don’t have iTunes songs you can’t do it but I’ve seen that on musically/TickTock that you can search up a song and they will most likely have it because they have almost every song so I was hoping that they could do the same thing that musically/TickTock does and have almost every song because it will make it much easier to use this app and a lot more fun for the people to use it. I hope you guys read this review and fix the problems that I have suggested. Thanks

    By coralinev on Funimate! <3
    I’ve been using VideoStar for almost a year now, or I believe that it has been a year. The app is great!!! If you use all the effects you are given you could make such a wonderful edit. However, on the topic of effects, the new update with the text effects isn’t the best. The text effects are choppy even with decent graphs. I’m not sure if putting it on a longer clip would do it justice but so far I don’t find it worth spending your money on. You could’ve added text explosion or something that you see in edits regularly. It would save editors a LOT of time. You should also consider getting some decent turbulences. Not the old turbulences, I’m talking about GOOD ones that look somewhat like AE. No matter how hard you try with the turbulences provided it still is not the best. Other than the lack of effects that people are asking for, the app is overall great. I would highly recommend it for ANY editors. Whether you’re beginner, intermediate, or experienced, this is right for you!!! If you are a beginner I would start on apps such as Funimate or apps that teach you the basics. Before you get on VS you have to learn at least what keyframes are and how to properly use them, or wing it. We don’t care.

    I have been using video star for a few years now and overall I love to use it and make edits with it. There are a few things that could be fixed, though. Over the past few months, I’ve found easy ways to download long videos to my phone to make a video edit. When I use the app Mega to download videos I have to add those videos to an album in my camera roll to upload it to my video star project which just adds more steps. There are also a few glitches I noticed. When I’m making a video edit sometimes the screen just goes white in the middle of the edit and when I save the edit to my camera roll it’s just a frozen screen. I don’t know why this happens but it has happened to me quite a bit. Also, I tried to watch one of my video edits but as soon as I got to the second part it automatically paused itself. And when I saved it to my camera roll half the edit was gone. Also, when I have been editing for a long period sometimes the entire app freezes. For example, I could be trying to create a multi-layer clip and it would freeze in the middle of loading. Other than that I enjoy using this app and I will continue to use it.
  • AMAZING APP!! Jan 28, 2021

    By jakamals
    first of all, I have been using this app for a while now! I think since Feb 2020! at first I wasn’t used to it but now since I got vsp and have been practicing I have gotten better! I have a tiktok account which now has 13k followers! all thanks to your app! reason why I’m not giving it a full 5 star is because I thinks there should be some changes! 1: can you make AT LEAST the first two layers free? I think it would be amazing for the people with vs free! so they can put their watermark, etc. 2. maybe make some more transitions free?! There aren’t that much good transitions for free! and it kind of takes a long time finding one for free ( a good one ). it would also be better for the people with vsf! or with people that don’t want to pay just for better transitions. otherwise, videostar is an amazing app! it’s useful and I love it! it distracts me when I’m stressed and stuff! it’s one of my hobby’s! even one of my edits blew up on tiktok! all thanks to ur app! I would have never made a tiktok account or have known anything about editing if video star wasn’t around! thank you otherwise and have a great day!

    Hi , the app is very good although there's a lot of multi layer crashes ,I think y'all should update the app to let us have 20 layers because a lot of ppl use overlays and shaded cubes. Speaking of shaded cubes I think y'all should add to where when we use 3D cubes it's automatically shaded and a slide bar to put how much we want it shaded Ex. If someone wanted a AE like cube they would have to use more layers and do a lot more work BUT if y'all add the auto shading and slide bar we could easily just slide it up and down to see how much shading we want . And I don't think it's that important but maybe a one for like a shine like where the light hits on the cube or whatever 3D shape we use . And now speaking of 3D shapes I would personally LOVE and use it a lot if y'all added more shapes like maybe gem cubes and the one that's like a rectangle with triangles at the end I would love that so much again these are all just things I would like and think y'all should add to the app to make it better . Other than that the app is amazing<3
  • Great results / hard to use Mar 15, 2021

    By Bejayoharen
    Video star produces fantastic results and I really like it, but it’s a steep learning curve and fairly unintuitive for new users. Some particular problems I still have: ⭕️when recording, I’d like to be able to just record a bunch of takes, but it always exits me to the edit screen where I’m a few taps away from recording again. I’d also like some ability to quickly annotate my takes — either with text or just stars. ⭕️All of the destructive operations, like splitting scenes, are unnecessarily destructive; it’s silly and annoying that you can’t undo that. ⭕️There are a lot of effects — most of them useless — so rather than forcing the user to go to another screen to categorize them into visible and hidden, I’d like to see them put in categories by video star.⭕️ It’s way too hard to crop and do cross-dissolves. How anyone would know to go to multilayer to do this is beyond me. ⭕️Multilayer is, however, really awesome. I often edit my whole video in that — I wish it supported different compositing modes and I wish it were nondestructive because having to redo a bunch of work to make one tweak is very frustrating. ⭕️Finally, it would be really cool if this app had official support for one of the many smart gimbals on the market (maybe it does already?)
  • Confusing / Please Read Dec 27, 2020

    By iM jUsT sIxTeEn
    When I try to edit on this app it is overall very confusing, I’ve tried understanding it many times but the layout when you edit a video confuses me the most. I’m not the greatest at editing so I watch videos to show me how to edit on your app but it is always hard keeping up because everything is scattered around the app. I have a suggestion where on your app there is an option button and from there you can choose which type of layout you want your app to be like when you edit. I really like the iMovie (on iPhone) layout where you edit how there all videos/pictures are put down and you just have to click the button next to it to make/pick a transition, I would use another app but I like your app better it has more transitions to choose from, but another thing is that most transitions that are like cool and better than the free ones cost money I would much rather watch a add to use the affect/ transition because most of us editors can’t afford to buy transitions we like. Sorry if this is a lot to ask for but I would like it if you took this into consideration. Thank you and Happy Holidays!
  • video quality Jul 8, 2021

    By Ally.abernethy
    overall great app, i’ve been using it for god knows how long and it keeps getting better… for the most part. with the way vs operates, you must continue to layer and re-layer a clip when editing. this includes adding both transitions, layout effects(which you can only use one at a time) coloring effects(same as layout effects), vsmb, and custom coloring. this is a lot of re effecting that you MUST do to achieve your desired results. i never minded doing that until for some reason video star multi layer completely worsens the quality after every re-effect or every clip you add onto. at this point i can’t put the same clip through multi-layer more than three times or else the quality becomes gritty and pixely. vsmb worsens this. it makes the edits look horrible once they’re posted on instagram. i suggest either fixing this problem OR allowing people to use multiple layout/coloring effects on one clip, so i don’t have to keep re-effecting the same clip. the video quality is a huge dealbreaker, there’s no reason for the 1080p quality clip i worked hard to get to turn to a 244p clip after a few re-effects.
  • Needs some changes... Jun 15, 2019

    By lps.Ghøst
    Hello! I’m a fellow user of this awesome app! It’s pretty good, and I recommend it for editing and such. I feel like there’s just a few little changes that would make this app greater!!!! 1. The music choices. The music choices you have are not popular, known, or just really catchy at all. I think you need to add more.. popular songs, like Billie ellish, Melanie Martinez and etc. that more people around the world could enjoy! 2. You have to pay for SO MUCH stuff. I think that you have to pay for almost everything. Although some of it might be cheap, it’s really hard to pay for it. Like edits, and using QR codes . Just the stuff people might really want to use cost money. Even the littlest things too.... like, one day I just gotten QR codes that actually worked! It filled up most of my storage too, I got my hopes up SO high!!! BUT to merge clips, and use QR codes cost money! This made me SUPER mad, and even sad!!! I got my hopes up for nothing?!?!? I think you should make people pay for less stuff, if not... people will stop using this app. This whole paragraph wasn’t ment to be mean, or let you down. Just my honest opinion... ~Ghøst
  • Expensive Apr 30, 2020

    By JulietSamoyeds
    I’ve tried looking up “free edit tutorials” because for the LIFE of me I cant find a decent free transition. This app from what I can tell is almost completely USELESS if you don’t want to sell your soul for decent transition, or just make getting pro less expensive or a one time payment. Plenty of people use this app and is probably the most popular editing app on the App Store. I spent hours looking up tutorials on how to use transitions in free mode because my parents won’t let me get the pro mode. With how useless this is as free I’d be better off using apps like funimate or something like that. I’d be fine with there being a pro if you actually gave some INTERESTING things to people who can’t pay for pro. Every transition I tapped on said something like “you can have all of these for the CHEAP price of 5.99 a month!” Or something like that. You can get a one-time payment bitzen account on BitLife for less then that and playing that doesn’t promote their app even more, while pro is expensive here and since the people who are making the edits are forced to have pro, they all look good and are posting them, making people want to get that app, making yalls customers grow even more. I guess it’s just kinda annoying that I can do absolutely nothing with this app, when I’ve used it in the past on friend’s phones and such and had good experiences
  • Good! but couple things May 12, 2020

    By peanut butter pup
    Hi ! I just came out here to say that I have been using Videostar with one layer for over 2 years. I haven’t gotten any better because you can’t add overlays, colorings, more then 1 layer for the free version. I have asked my parents multiple times if I can get it for Christmas my birthday or some day. They think it’s a waste of many and I can’t participate in the All access pass giveaways either :( please please put into consideration to have QR code’s that involve multiple layers and have more then 4 or 5 layers. I have watched videos after videos on how to make your edits better with overlays, but some of them require a ton of overlays. I really want to make my edits better by QR code’s with multiple layers and just using more layers, because I cannot get Videostar multilayer pack in any other way. Please put these thoughts into consideration. I get that you need to get money off of the app from packs but all I am asking is the multilayer with working QR code’s that have more layers for FREE. You can get money off of Videostar by more adds of other packs as well, I just want Videostar, multilayer pack for free, or I am afraid I can’t use it very well. :( please please put these things into consideration, know that probably lots of people are thinking the same.

    By Blossom_Boy147
    This is literally an app made for buying. Almost everything has to be paid for and you have no free will. You cant even put in your own lighting QR for free anymore!! Its worthless and should not be downloaded. It does absolutely nothing right and as a person with shaky hands, the transition sliders are just way to hard. I don’t understand why this app is so desperate for money. I get it that people need money but why not make something like a gofundme or something!! Or have the creators become content creators. The fact that every good thing needs to be payed for is dumb. Stick to CapCut and CuteCut. They get the job done. And in CuteCut you can crop the video so you don't get the little watermark, and CapCut doesn't even have one!! This app has no use but to annoy its users. Even CapCut lighting effects are better than this. Ive tried this app so many times and every time I do it has just gotten worse. This app doesn't even need 3 stars. It doesn't need any. Not everyone has money to buy subscriptions for their effects. And if your phone memory is wiped then gl getting your money back. Absolutely garbage mate. Completely mad to think someone will pay to put in their own effects!!!
