  • Great JOB!!!!? You are amazing 😉!!! -Etoad May 1, 2020

    By toad pond
    This app is amazing however it is not free and that makes me a bit sad 😢 However the app is pretty good!here is a little note to the developer: this app is amazing you did an awesome job putting all of your hard work into it! But like I said it is not free and I would like it to become free for everyone. I am not saying I do not like this app. I totally love it it’s just that it’s not free and I have to pay for it as well I’m also really into photo editing and things like that so I would like app where you can animate and edit things just like a professional! Here is my idea of what you could do to make the app free: you could either stop having people to pay for it or you can make another copy kind of like this that is free but however the rest of the app is amazing also when I downloaded it I was super excited but when I figured out you had to pay for it I had to delete it but I got a play around with most of the tools so that was good also I noticed how much detail the iPads and how many professional toys do you included so great job I’m also hoping for a response from the developer or his/her crew also please let me know what you think of the ideas I would really appreciate if you made this app free,also you did an amazing job putting it together and brainstorming about the app!-Very good job 👍🏻!!! -Etoad

    I have been into photography Photo shopping for year and making my own videos and slide shows i’ve used hundreds of app never been satisfied until now I have not been able to put this App away cents downloading i’ve probably Photo shopped about a hundred pictures and still have not been through all this app has to offer As Of right now the only thing I don’t like when your creator I wish there was a way to click on All of your picture to edit them Stead of having to do for example if I wanted to speed them all up slow them down to click on each pic individually and also sometimes it cuts out more of my pic then I want it to for example A picture of me on a motorcycle It cuts out my motorcycle so if there’s a way for you guys to it’s that I would greatly it or if it’s already fixed and I am unaware please let me know I am definitely satisfied with your app and as of someone who never for apps like this I always just fine free ones I must say your app it’s definitely worth paying for and I can’t wait to see everything your app has to offer as well as all the great improvements I know you guys Will make in the near future
  • I LOVE THIS APP 💕 Nov 12, 2020

    By friend of kane
    Ok so I absolutely love this app!!! It’s been amazing for me and I haven’t come across any problems yet! It took me a little bit to figure out everything and the little things that pop up when you press the plus to make a new film or whatever your doing is really helpful because it reminds me what I have to do! I use this to make my gacha vids and I love it so far 😍!!! Another thing I love is that it lets me put in music from my playlist! This is really helpful for me because some apps have music that you have to pick from If u want music instead of letting you access your playlist but then they don’t always have the song your looking for so it’s not very helpful. It also has sounds and there own music that you can add if you don’t want any of the songs in your playlist! It has been such a great app and I am so excited I could find an app that actually works for me that doesn’t delete all my work so it’s been the best app I’ve had yet! I recommend getting this app if you make gacha vids and your looking for an app that you can use to make your vids! I gave this a five star review!!!!
  • Love it but huge problem May 16, 2022

    By UnidentifiedThing
    I think everyone can agree that only being able to make 90 sec vids so u can save and send them, is super unfair, and not to mention how expensive it is for premium. I work hard on just music videos that r like 3 min, but some people r making like 20 to 30 long vids, or even longer, and the fact that they only get 90 secs to be able to save is outrageous, atleast give us 5-10 flippin minutes, then atleast we would have more of a choice to not have to buy premium, and if we wanted to make longer vids then 5-10 min, then we could buy premium, but it’s almost like ur the developer is trying to make us buy it by limiting the time so much! And plz cut down the prices! It’s soooo expensive! Just for an editing app!! I love this app, but I absolutely hate the limit! If not taking it away, atleast extend it! To the developer, plz consider this, and to people who just downloaded this app and r looking for info, it’s a good app and it’s ez once u start understanding how it works, but it’s a scam to buy premium, and I don’t recommend waisting ur time making rlly long movies bc without buying premium, u can’t even save ur vids to ur gallery or photos or whatever incase u loose ur movies or somthing. So ya, that’s my review, and limit rlly needs fixing.
  • Mostly good, but buggy. Jul 1, 2020

    By CringeBoiGD
    Obviously I knew that there would be some risk with buying an expensive video editor on my IPad, especially when I haven’t really looked into different ones very much, but I know that this software, despite sometimes crashing, does have a lot of helpful features, if you need text on screen, picture in picture, sound effects and music, and a really buggy but otherwise enjoyable chroma key (green screen) effect which is a bit hard and sometimes impossible to pull off, especially with gradients. Now, the main point; it’s got one glaring issue that weighs my opinion of it down. When I add too many things or even one thing in, especially chroma keys, the whole thing crashes. **Disclaimer: This does not always happen, so it’s not too bad, but it does happen occasionally and is very annoying.** I don’t know why it does this, especially when I have plenty of space on my device and a good internet connection (although that shouldn’t be required). My suggestion would be to try to fix this (duh), but seriously, this is important to prioritize because of how badly it affects the product. Also, for free users, it would be helpful if you could display where the watermark appears, or maybe let them move it a little to make it more convenient. Maybe that would at least help them figure it out easier.
  • Great App Nov 16, 2018

    By Start-Up Guy
    **To update. There’s a major problem with the time synchronization of the chroma key feature. I’ve created, multiple times, a backing video to use with a chroma key video. Both videos have been time aligned to the same audio track. Yet when combining the videos through chroma key the timing is up to 10 seconds off in spots. But not consistently. I’m looking for a different app now as I can’t find a solution through this one. So I love this app! I used to to edit an entire music video on my iPhone SE and it came out great. The features are powerful and it’s very intuitive. There’s only two real problems that I’ve been experiencing. First, I wish I could lock clips into place on the timeline. It would make it much easier to A/B different clips and B-roll during editing, instead of how it’s currently set where the next clip plays directly after. So if I delete a five second clip, instead of five seconds of white space my entire video from that point on is 5seconds out of time. Lastly, and it may be a user issue, but I cannot get the phone to upload this video anywhere in anything higher than 360p. Does it export in 360?
  • You’re almost there but not quite and Feb 19, 2020

    By MsDigitalD
    I’m about to delete this app cause that’s how frustrating it is. The way you have to click on it and the selecting has made it for a lot of trial and errors especially since there no undo. I’ve had to start all over again, too many times because I didn’t know if what I was selecting to trim was to keep or discard. I figured since it’s trim I would the select the piece of video I wanted to trim off and that would be deleted. Nope I was wrong but look there’s no undo and now I have to start from the beginning. BIG PROBLEM. LOTS OF TIME WASTED. The there’s not a way after you detract the audio to reattach it or maybe I am missing it. Another this is file naming, why can’t I change the file name or folder name or where it gets exported to. I don’t even know when it is and I have to go looking for it and I can’t find it easily cause I am not able to change the name to the file or folder to make it easily located. It’s been very frustrating. Hopefully I’m just blind and I can’t find the undo button, reattached audio and the renaming of files/folders cause if it doesn’t get added soon I’m going to have to find a new video editing app.
  • A couple of bugs and trim problem Apr 16, 2020

    By Robloxobbymaster
    So, when I started using this app, I decided to make a 1 minute long video. It went out pretty well, I tested out the trim on that and it worked fine. (Before I knew that it would put the text out of place) So I decided to use it on my 8 minute long video and guess what. It trimmed it but... the text just wasn’t, in the right place. I figured it would keep the text where it was but nope. I thought that I could save it but I put a lot of text in the video. So I just gave up and remade the whole video. I got so frustrated, and once I nearly finished the second video, I accidentally clicked on the illustrations button AND text button at the same time. It ended up making the whole app crash for some weird reason. I just thought it was the normal crashes I usually had while making the video, but that wasn’t the case. Once I reopened my video it crashed again. It just wouldn’t stop crashing. And then that’s when I got FURIOUS!!! HOURS OF WORK DONE IN RETURN FOR NOTHING!!! I tried restarting my iPad but that didn’t work either, it still crashes. I am still upset about the fact that it is just completely gone.
  • Good but... Jul 4, 2019

    By Dr.5335
    This is a really nice software and easy to use. It has helped me a lot with past things and is really helping with present and probably future things. There are a few downsides though. When you put a picture, but then want to trim the time of how long it stays, it will shorten, but you can’t make it longer if you made a mistake. Another thing is you can’t have a clip less than .5 seconds. The app keeps randomly exiting me off it and it keeps losing my most recent progress. It takes a long time to load and a REALLY REALLY REALLY long time to download it and make it a video rather than watching it with the rest of the scenes under it. A horrible spoiler for my family when I show them my mini films. It keeps exiting me off of my movie and this upsets me because I spend so long on it, and it’s not even that long. It’s about 8-10 minutes long, so I’m deleting a bunch of things that I shouldn't have to, and it STILL keeps exiting me off! It was something really special for my family, and now I can’t even watch one full minute of it.
  • Used for grandmother’s 90th birthday!! Feb 13, 2020

    By Long_x_Friend
    This was magnificent. I purchased the one month Pro version for the wonderful added benefits (layers of music, writing, photo-on-photo,etc) so I didn’t miss any details for this special gift. Through using it, I only found one thing that made the process of making the video, tedious. If I wanted to edit a photo/video (like changing the display time) it would automatically zoom the picture in. So just make sure you get all your pictures set first, next put them in the order you want, then add your text (and PIN IT TO THE CLIP!), finally you add your music and playback to check timing and flow. I loved using this app!!! It allowed me to make a 30 minute movie, showering my grandmother with birthday wishes all over the country and brought back memories for her. I later took snippets from the party and made a thank you video to send to everyone in it!!

  • It has potential Apr 6, 2020

    By justsomememedued
    Honestly I tried making a full on ur video on this and I had so much problems with it. For one every time I crop the video or something for some reason it also shortens the video too? And there’s a lot of audio issues I got while trying to edit and sometimes if I were to attempt to paste a single clip to make it sort of loop it doesn’t even transition the audio smoothly you can tell that there was a cut in the video which is annoying and I tried the same thing in another app and it did it perfectly. There’s also the fact if I split a clip most of the time you’ll be able to see a green line on the side in the split clip and most of the times it’ll just cut to black and audio would still play and the video would just be missing feo some reason which again is really annoying, The chroma key is pretty bad too I would press on the color I’m trying to chroma key out but it chroma keys everything but the color I tapped. I know these may sound like a me problem it might even annoy you too when you’re trying to make a video and I only got to make the intro bit of the video I didn’t even get to the rest before giving up because of how many issues I had. Overall this app has some great potential but unless they fix this I wouldn’t recommend using it for now
  • A wretched glob of scum stuck to the bottom the worn out tennis shoe that is the App Store Sep 22, 2019

    By Yaküb Poi
    I’ll keep this short, like you should keep the videos you use this app for, because in order to produce a video longer than some arbitrary time you have to purchase Filmmaker pro (Tm). That’s reasonable (the pricing isn’t, but whatever it’s an ok app so I bought it). I bought a month long subscription that i get to remember to cancel before it charges me the same rate again next month because I wanted to make one video. I finished editing it last night and opened the app today to export it today. Uh oh I don’t have the pro version anymore. I try to restore my purchase. “Your purchases were successfully restored”; nope. Sure were not successfully restored. I try to pay for a month long subscription AGAIN to try and not waste over 10 hours of editing I’ve already put into it. I can’t buy it because I’m already subscribed. I do this entire process multiple times trying to desperately not have just wasted so many frustrating hours trying to edit a video on my phone to begin with. I am going to go buy some cheap trinket from a dollar store and smash it into smithereens now. -10/arbitrary scoring number. This app is either a scam or complete garbage. This was longer than intended, just like the tumultuous march through Hell that is dealing with Filmmaker “Pro”
  • A serious let down Sep 2, 2020

    By nothank$3459
    I have been working with this app for two years now. It operation is sub par, glitchy, and frustrating. I dealt with it because the interface was user friendly. There would be hours before where it would crash, freeze, delete a video but it wasn’t worth getting worked up about. I have now spent 24 hours, excusing the time to sleep, trying to get this app to load so I could finish my work and get paid. It was slow to load, so I thought I will delete some old content to help with the lag, this has worked in the past. BIGGEST REGRET! The app was frozen for 15 minutes, I was trying to be patient, I had to force stop the app, and now here we are. Day two and it still won’t open. Weeks of work are now in the filmmaker void unable to be accessed and that’s just the content I’m currently trying to work with let alone the months of work I have stored on the app that are now gone because if i delete the app to reinstall my data will be lost. Heartbroken and frustrated. If you’re looking to be frustrated often and editing a simple video to take longer than necessary because of slow loading and glitching download this app. You will be disappointed.
  • “Restore” and “Contact Us” Doesn’t work Jan 26, 2019

    By genericlizard
    I signed up for the $5.99 monthly Pro plan to test for my needs. After a week or so, I decided to cancel after the first month, so I changed my subscription. I tried producing more videos (they have great fonts, and transitions and some music options in the pro version) and no longer had access to the pro options though I was still within my paid month. When I clicked “restore” it restored the monthly subscription but not the pro access in the app. I uninstalled/ reinstalled and still not working. When I try to use a pro font, I get a pop-up that asks me to restore. When I click restore, I get a pop up saying it was successful. And then when I try to use the pro font, I get a pop-up that says restore. When I click the “contact us“ link to try to reach out to their support, it didn’t go anywhere. But when I click the link to leave a review just below it, I was offered the ability to leave a review. Normally I would just reach out to support before leaving a bad review but this may be the only way to contact them. The videos I was able to create were quality but the app has some bugs that I need addressed.
  • I was SHOCKED Aug 22, 2019

    By Slime_loving_dolphin
    I worked for long, hard hours to put together a movie for me to enjoy with my family. When my movie was finally completed, I was thrilled and the time has come for me to upload the movie to my camera app. But there was a bit of a problem. In this app, apparently you have to pay for the PRO version and pay money in order to export into your photos. This was a huge shocker because I worked so hard to come to find there is no way to save the movie. The only way to save the movie is to press the expand screen button and screen record the movie into your camera app, but in the corner there’s this yellow arrow that won’t disappear that says, “Remove limit” so even if you do screen record to post it, your viewers will have their minds on why there’s a “Remove limit” icon on the upper left corner. Even if they would just get rid of that annoying announcement that tells me to “Remove limit” I wouldn’t be writing this poor review, but because of that small icon, my whole time and commitment to the completion of the video was wasted and the video itself was wasted as well.
  • Disappointed Jul 14, 2020

    By E.K.M.35
    The app was great. I was editing my video with pictures and adding words. It took me a while and I was proud of it. Then, I added some music to it. Just as I was about to watch it, to make sure it was how I wanted it, it said that I wouldn’t be able to share it unless I paid money and got PRO. That was the whole point I made it though! ☹️ I wanted to make a video and post it FOR FREE! Then, I thought that maybe I wouldn’t have to pay to share my video if I took the music off, but I couldn’t take it off! And it wouldn’t even let me screen record my video! I wish that it would’ve told me that I would have to pay in order to share it before I made the video. Then I just would’ve deleted the app and happily looked for a different one. I spent a lot of work on this video so that I could share it, but I couldn’t! It was really disappointing! Also, if it is “too long” you’ll have to close the app and then go back into it in order to keep editing your video! ( Do NOT get this app unless your willing to pay and you don’t care about your time! 😤😭

    This used to be such an amazing app! Almost everything was free and it was very accessible. It used to be my absolute favorite app to edit videos and photos because it was so easy to control and not that complicated. Now if you want to share or save the video/picture that you made to your photos it will ask you to buy something for like $5 a month! That’s $60 a YEAR to keep a video that you made?? Many fonts also used to be free, but now they want the $5 a month thing. Now I have to watch multiple tutorials to figure out how to use a more complicated FREE app. I would much rather struggle and have to learn a new app then pay $60 dollars a year though. I had recommended this app the my friends and now I realize I need to tell them that they should no longer use it. I hope that anyone who wants to get this app sees this and realizes what a waste of time it would be to download this if you can’t even keep your own videos and photos and are limited to what you can actually do for free. Thanks for reading all of this and right after I submit this review I will be deleting this app.
  • Too many bugs, missing features, and all around agrevations Mar 7, 2020

    By alskonedi
    Let me first say, I sent an email to the “contact” email about some of these issues this morning and not received even an automated response so I am not just putting this out here without trying to find help with the issues. I purchased this app with great excitement because of the fonts but unfortunately I am finding out it is not worth the price. For starters there is no “undo” feature which makes splitting (which by the way does not work) and cutting a video in the correct place impossible. If you do cut it and it is wrong, your only option is to reload the video and try again. I finally gave up and decided to do the video editing in my old program and then import it into this one. Makes sense since I like the fonts, right? Wrong. Half the time you have to tap the screen five times to be able to select the word if you are wanting to move it then when you do manage to select it, if you are wanting to use another word on the slide as a reference for where to place it, you cannot see the other word. This results in you having to guess, check, guess, again, check, guess again, etc. This is ridiculous. Next issue, sometimes, for no known reason, the words decide to darken the screen when they come in, the only way to correct this issue is to adjust the opacity, which in turn makes the word...INVISIBLE. Your fonts are great but not that great. Cancelling my subscription and going back to my other app.
  • Do not recommend for anything halfway serious Mar 5, 2021

    By JackDrennan
    I have been working on a project for a month or so, have about 8 minutes of footage for this project and all of a sudden the text boxes on the timeline disappeared. So after I needed to move around scenes, the text boxes can’t be moved so they bleed over other scenes and there’s nothing I can do about it. I am going to have to start all over and it’s a MAJOR WASTE OF TIME. I’ve spent countless hours editing this crap. Also, even with a BRAND NEW IPAD, adding in any more than 5 minutes of footage into a project causes your app to lag and run slowly whenever you try to work on the project. And they have the audacity to charge you money for this? I’d expect some effort to be put in your product if you want to steal my money. Overall very dissatisfied and angry that I wasted so much time on this and have to redo everything I did because of a very nonsensical glitch. Or if it’s by design for text boxes to randomly disappear and be unable to edit, then that’s an absolutely terrible design.
  • If you want a frustrating experience Jul 13, 2020

    By cool-123
    Really if you want to work slower this app is for you. Some features are great but the cons greatly out weigh them. Dealing with this app is pretty frustrating. Trying to split or trim your video is like threading a needle with a macro scope. Not “micro”, MACRO! Plus unnecessary steps to do it. First click video while it zooms out your entire project so you get the least accurate cut possible. You better not have a video longer the 30 seconds if you want accurate. Why not zoom in so I can see the frames. Hit the action, adjust, hit the check mark. In that exact order. Why?! If you adjust then hit split it resets so you have to adjust it again. Why not have it split from the tick marks current position. Maybe you want to undo that trim. Good luck. Better start over. Get rid of that check mark, making it 3 steps. How about adjust then hit trim. Bam 2 steps. And put a undo button. If there is one then its definitely not visible.

  • Absolutely love this app Feb 3, 2020

    By chase1982Photoshopking
    I have been into photography Photo shopping for year and making my own videos and slide shows i’ve used hundreds of app never been satisfied until now I have not been able to put this App away cents downloading i’ve probably Photo shopped about a hundred pictures and still have not been through all this app has to offer As Of right now the only thing I don’t like when your creator I wish there was a way to click on All of your picture to edit them Stead of having to do for example if I wanted to speed them all up slow them down to click on each pic individually and also sometimes it cuts out more of my pic then I want it to for example A picture of me on a motorcycle It cuts out my motorcycle so if there’s a way for you guys to it’s that I would greatly it or if it’s already fixed and I am unaware please let me know I am definitely satisfied with your app and as of someone who never for apps like this I always just fine free ones I must say your app it’s definitely worth paying for and I can’t wait to see everything your app has to offer as well as all the great improvements I know you guys Will make in the near future
  • I LOVE THIS APP 💕 Nov 12, 2020

    By friend of kane
    Ok so I absolutely love this app!!! It’s been amazing for me and I haven’t come across any problems yet! It took me a little bit to figure out everything and the little things that pop up when you press the plus to make a new film or whatever your doing is really helpful because it reminds me what I have to do! I use this to make my gacha vids and I love it so far 😍!!! Another thing I love is that it lets me put in music from my playlist! This is really helpful for me because some apps have music that you have to pick from If u want music instead of letting you access your playlist but then they don’t always have the song your looking for so it’s not very helpful. It also has sounds and there own music that you can add if you don’t want any of the songs in your playlist! It has been such a great app and I am so excited I could find an app that actually works for me that doesn’t delete all my work so it’s been the best app I’ve had yet! I recommend getting this app if you make gacha vids and your looking for an app that you can use to make your vids! I gave this a five star review!!!!
  • Mostly good, but buggy. Jul 1, 2020

    By CringeBoiGD
    Obviously I knew that there would be some risk with buying an expensive video editor on my IPad, especially when I haven’t really looked into different ones very much, but I know that this software, despite sometimes crashing, does have a lot of helpful features, if you need text on screen, picture in picture, sound effects and music, and a really buggy but otherwise enjoyable chroma key (green screen) effect which is a bit hard and sometimes impossible to pull off, especially with gradients. Now, the main point; it’s got one glaring issue that weighs my opinion of it down. When I add too many things or even one thing in, especially chroma keys, the whole thing crashes. **Disclaimer: This does not always happen, so it’s not too bad, but it does happen occasionally and is very annoying.** I don’t know why it does this, especially when I have plenty of space on my device and a good internet connection (although that shouldn’t be required). My suggestion would be to try to fix this (duh), but seriously, this is important to prioritize because of how badly it affects the product. Also, for free users, it would be helpful if you could display where the watermark appears, or maybe let them move it a little to make it more convenient. Maybe that would at least help them figure it out easier.
  • Used for grandmother’s 90th birthday!! Feb 13, 2020

    By Long_x_Friend
    This was magnificent. I purchased the one month Pro version for the wonderful added benefits (layers of music, writing, photo-on-photo,etc) so I didn’t miss any details for this special gift. Through using it, I only found one thing that made the process of making the video, tedious. If I wanted to edit a photo/video (like changing the display time) it would automatically zoom the picture in. So just make sure you get all your pictures set first, next put them in the order you want, then add your text (and PIN IT TO THE CLIP!), finally you add your music and playback to check timing and flow. I loved using this app!!! It allowed me to make a 30 minute movie, showering my grandmother with birthday wishes all over the country and brought back memories for her. I later took snippets from the party and made a thank you video to send to everyone in it!!
  • Awesome App!! Jun 18, 2019

    By MEGA74111
    Recently SPLICE did a major upgrade which they made some major changes to their software with many restrictions. I downloaded and started using this app before the de buckle over their at the world famous GoPro studios..Yawn! So I was using both app very frequently. I like the options this app has. It’s much better than SPLICE. I use Final Cut Pro for video art projects. It’s nice to be able to use an app like this on my new iPhone XS Max and with 512 gigs I’ve got tons of storage. Life without a video edit app in your pocket is just plain and boring. I hope if this company decides to do a major update they send out a memo to people like me who use this app every day and really enjoy it. I would like to request a “duplicate” button for the audio you import and a rewind option for video clips. That would step up this game, hint hint;)
  • In app purchase does not work! Jan 5, 2019

    By AztecRenewable
    I have had this app for a year or so and loved it. I became dependent on its capabilities and used it for my business. Now that I depend on it, it stopped working. I had already been paying for the service, when suddenly it required me to purchase again. I was thinking my credit card had changed or it’s been a year since I had purchased the app. I have spent two days trying to purchase it again ( I’m a IT professional), read everything about in app purchases, checked every setting, verified OS / App updates and contacted tech support who told me to turn off/on my device and everything will be fine. I even check my iPhone app as my iPad is paired together. Both apps on both devices report in app purchase failed. I can pay Uber, but not theses guys. It’s not fine!
  • Great app! Slightly pricey. Jul 8, 2018

    By Nic!8.
    First off I want to say that this app was pretty great and had a lot of what I was looking for, however, there are a couple things to be weary of before downloading. Lots of the better features cost money, which is not unexpected. Although, I will say that the price for individual package purchases is somewhat high compared to the annual membership price. Again, it’s not overwhelmingly expensive, and is expected that the company would rather have you buy the membership. Needless to say, I’m sure the small issues with this app will continuously be improved through updates. In total, other than a few minor glitches, and the app occasionally crashing on more demanding projects(I never lost any progress on after a crash I simply had to re-enter the app, I highly enjoy it.
  • Best Mobile App for Lyric Videos Apr 4, 2020

    By Harleen36668
    I love music and I love making lyric videos for fun, so I tried out a bunch of video maker apps and none of them worked out for me. Filmmaker Pro was a blessing when I came across it. It’s now my go-to for lyric videos. I accessed the free trial and I wasn’t disappointed, so I’ll definitely be subscribed to Pro. There are a few bugs/glitches, though? Sometimes the text won’t appear in the preview and when I’m exporting the video it will export half way and then kick me out of the app. Usually happens when I try to export with 1080 quality, but can happen with the other qualities too. I also get kicked out whenever I make an edit, it can be random, like me changing a text, or trimming a clip, or things like that, it’ll just crash. Besides that this app is everything I wanted.
  • Text bug? Great editing app! Jul 1, 2019

    By Charrrity
    So I bought this app and I love it. I’ve made videos using it and it is great. I only use this app for music and very nice fonts. For what I use it for it works great. That’s why I give it a 5 star rating. I feel like if I used it for my whole project it would be harder to use. There is a lot of stuff I like about the app, and I highly recommend it. Something I’ve noticed, however, Is that the text repositions wrong. I can put a text and move it to the place I want (in the editing part where you can pick your fonts) then when I go to watch it it’s somewhere else. (Words have been cut off). I screen recorded the problem and honestly it’s a bug I really hope gets fixed. I don’t believe I’m doing anything wrong. I still love the app so I hope this can be resolved.
  • 30 years videography experience Nov 29, 2018

    By jpm6078
    I have worked with a lot of desktop video editing equipment over the years. Some of the best software in the industry. I have been completely blown away with the capabilities, simplicity and quality of this product. I have dabbled with mobile device editing software but the capabilities were nowhere near the needs of some of my projects. Although I do not use this for professional works, I have used it for quick 30 second and 1 minute promos and they have been great! It is getting very close for me to use this professionally. I primarily use Filmmaker Pro for promos but I also use another program where some of their features are a little bit different and better for specific projects.
  • Great JOB!!!!? You are amazing 😉!!! -Etoad May 1, 2020

    By toad pond
    This app is amazing however it is not free and that makes me a bit sad 😢 However the app is pretty good!here is a little note to the developer: this app is amazing you did an awesome job putting all of your hard work into it! But like I said it is not free and I would like it to become free for everyone. I am not saying I do not like this app. I totally love it it’s just that it’s not free and I have to pay for it as well I’m also really into photo editing and things like that so I would like app where you can animate and edit things just like a professional! Here is my idea of what you could do to make the app free: you could either stop having people to pay for it or you can make another copy kind of like this that is free but however the rest of the app is amazing also when I downloaded it I was super excited but when I figured out you had to pay for it I had to delete it but I got a play around with most of the tools so that was good also I noticed how much detail the iPads and how many professional toys do you included so great job I’m also hoping for a response from the developer or his/her crew also please let me know what you think of the ideas I would really appreciate if you made this app free,also you did an amazing job putting it together and brainstorming about the app!-Very good job 👍🏻!!! -Etoad
  • Great App Nov 16, 2018

    By Start-Up Guy
    **To update. There’s a major problem with the time synchronization of the chroma key feature. I’ve created, multiple times, a backing video to use with a chroma key video. Both videos have been time aligned to the same audio track. Yet when combining the videos through chroma key the timing is up to 10 seconds off in spots. But not consistently. I’m looking for a different app now as I can’t find a solution through this one. So I love this app! I used to to edit an entire music video on my iPhone SE and it came out great. The features are powerful and it’s very intuitive. There’s only two real problems that I’ve been experiencing. First, I wish I could lock clips into place on the timeline. It would make it much easier to A/B different clips and B-roll during editing, instead of how it’s currently set where the next clip plays directly after. So if I delete a five second clip, instead of five seconds of white space my entire video from that point on is 5seconds out of time. Lastly, and it may be a user issue, but I cannot get the phone to upload this video anywhere in anything higher than 360p. Does it export in 360?
  • Not what I thought Jun 12, 2021

    By billy farts popsicle
    So I really like it if you are putting Videos together but pictures is not what I expected it to be. I wanted to take a stop-motion of my legos and it took way too long for the picture to go to the next one! If you want to do stop-motion than this app is not for you! If you like it to take a while to move from one picture to the next than, what are you waiting for!! Get it! I only do videos even if I want the picture to move slowly from one to the other and I promise it is not my internet! They did it on purpose and if there was a way to make it go faster than please tell me! I would love that!😊Also if it’s not there than please could you add it and tell me about it! The stop-motion is the whole reason I got this app and I still use it but I would use the app a lot more if the app had it! Also there is not many adds that I am aware of so far! I love that! If you hate adds and love editing than get this!!!
  • Great app! Jul 31, 2019

    By Potato Peyton
    I use this app to make gacha videos. With what I use, it works really well. I can easily load my iTunes music onto my video and I can change the time pretty easily too. I only have a couple have issues with it. The loading time takes forever! If you have a lot of pics like I do most of the time, it could take a good 5 minutes or so. I don’t like how the lowest time limit is 0.5 when it could be a little lower than that. Half a second may seem quick but when you TRY and work on even the tiny details, you might need a quick flash of a pic. Another thing is how big the watermark is. I understand that the watermark is there for a reason and that I can simply remove it with pro, but I’m a broke teenager who needs to save for a car. The watermark takes up a good portion of the corner too. It would be slightly better is it were clear. Luckily the watermark is in the unused corner. No text will be there. That seems to be my complaints.
  • Best I’ve Found, Still Hoping for More May 27, 2020

    By Alyssa the Stray
    I’m on my 2nd year now of paying for this subscription. I found this app because I was annoyed with some of iMovie’s limitations, but wanted a good editing app for my phone. This has overall been an amazing app, but I am very frustrated with a few things: 1. There’s no option to duplicate illustrations, drawings, and other things in that category. 2. There’s no option to zoom in for edits. I’m trying to edit about 100 screen recording videos on my phone, but it won’t let me zoom in or flip to a portrait viewing even though I have selected that I want to make a portrait video so I am working with about 1”x2” of screen space. 3. When I want to edit text and drawings, it won’t let me type in a number for the size that I want the text or drawing. I have to press the down and up arrows for a minute until it gets to the size I want, and then with the illustrations it won’t let me make anything smaller than 20%. 4. At the moment I’m trying to edit something in the uppermost portion of the screen, but the video time stamp is hovering over the spot I want to edit. All of these problems I’m sure would be much easier to work with on an iPad, but I don’t have an iPad and I don’t see why these things would be difficult to change or add more options in settings. Overall I love this app, and I’m hoping that someone could make a few changes.
  • Amazing but voice recording feature and text feature could be improved! Oct 3, 2018

    By simplyfatim
    This app is absolutely amazing, the array of fonts is above par, the control over the videos appearance is amazing, and all the cool text effects are to die for! One issue I’ve noticed recently is that I am no longer able to pinch the text to make it smaller, the only way I’ve managed to shrink the text is by holding down on the arrow that’s assigned to the text’s size. Another issue that I have is whenever I record background audio, and I start over, it doesn’t show the proper preview of the video. For example, if I’ve already recorded 30 seconds of audio and then chose to start over, after retrying it’d still be on the mark where I stopped it, rather then going back to the beginning of the clip. All in all this app is amazing, and I can’t wait to se what y’all have in store!
  • Great!… …until it updated Aug 1, 2021

    By SkunkFromChaos
    Was extremely happy with this app until it updated and I lost the ability to edit my videos with my phone in the horizontal position. It now STAYS in the upright vertical position at all times with no option to flip to horizontal! So much wasted space on the screen with a smaller viewing screen than desired. Now hard to work with for this reason. I prefer to do my editing on my phone remotely no matter where I am, but I now am not comfortable finalizing and publishing all my videos without seeing them larger beforehand. For me, it went from a great app, to one that could be great, but just infuriates me now when I try to use it. Would totally be a five star app if this issue was resolved! In the meantime, I paid for a subscription to an app I’m not too happy with.
  • Why is it free if you can’t save it? Jan 7, 2019

    By That gurl that likes doggos
    I spent a really long time, then I found this. When I was putting in videos, it kept the audio at the right space, it wasn’t confusing like some other apps, and I was able to do exactly what I needed to do. After a while, I finally finished. I was really excited, it worked perfectly, but when I went to save it, it would only save it if I paid for it. I don’t understand why it’s free if you can’t save all the work you did with it. Its due today and now I just spent a long time on this app when I could’ve gotten another one to do it and actually be able to export it. I can understand paying for more features but for exporting the video I don’t understand. Other than that this is an amazing app and I’d definitely recommend it, unless they can’t pay to export it, like me.
  • Still a great product! Jul 5, 2021

    By zoopzoooom
    i stopped messing with making videos for a while. when i slowly started getting back into it, i was trying out various apps, you know, to see what advances have been made either by the current apps or possibly new ones. of course no one app is perfect, including some unproven yet asking for a lot of money every year. but FP continues to be solid for me and does mostly what i need. it still doesn’t have an undo feature, although i’ve figured out a lengthy way around that. and the interface at the beginning where you choose the length of transitions is still unnecessary. FP may not be the most glamorous out there, but still, it is a solid video maker/sfx/editor with a lot of features and stability. and it’s been a steady part of my hobby.
  • A handy and simple app with a lot of useful tools May 29, 2020

    By painted ladder
    I use this app regularly to spice up videos and time lapses I take with my phone and even GoPro . It’s great if you want to add some transitions, effects, text, music etc without getting into the nuts and bolts of a robust app with more control, like Luma Fusion or After Effects. I find that I often don’t need so much control and this is the great little skate to get to the corner store and back. The one issue I have and so not 5 star at this time YET- hoping it’s addressed- is there is no UNDO!! If you use the app like I do then you may have had the same moments of frustration where you have a lot going on and make one mistake and ruin the whole thing :( Please add an undo , maybe even a redo and I’d happily give this app 5 stars. It’s still an app I’d suggest, and will continue to use .
  • Love it but huge problem May 16, 2022

    By UnidentifiedThing
    I think everyone can agree that only being able to make 90 sec vids so u can save and send them, is super unfair, and not to mention how expensive it is for premium. I work hard on just music videos that r like 3 min, but some people r making like 20 to 30 long vids, or even longer, and the fact that they only get 90 secs to be able to save is outrageous, atleast give us 5-10 flippin minutes, then atleast we would have more of a choice to not have to buy premium, and if we wanted to make longer vids then 5-10 min, then we could buy premium, but it’s almost like ur the developer is trying to make us buy it by limiting the time so much! And plz cut down the prices! It’s soooo expensive! Just for an editing app!! I love this app, but I absolutely hate the limit! If not taking it away, atleast extend it! To the developer, plz consider this, and to people who just downloaded this app and r looking for info, it’s a good app and it’s ez once u start understanding how it works, but it’s a scam to buy premium, and I don’t recommend waisting ur time making rlly long movies bc without buying premium, u can’t even save ur vids to ur gallery or photos or whatever incase u loose ur movies or somthing. So ya, that’s my review, and limit rlly needs fixing.
  • You’re almost there but not quite and Feb 19, 2020

    By MsDigitalD
    I’m about to delete this app cause that’s how frustrating it is. The way you have to click on it and the selecting has made it for a lot of trial and errors especially since there no undo. I’ve had to start all over again, too many times because I didn’t know if what I was selecting to trim was to keep or discard. I figured since it’s trim I would the select the piece of video I wanted to trim off and that would be deleted. Nope I was wrong but look there’s no undo and now I have to start from the beginning. BIG PROBLEM. LOTS OF TIME WASTED. The there’s not a way after you detract the audio to reattach it or maybe I am missing it. Another this is file naming, why can’t I change the file name or folder name or where it gets exported to. I don’t even know when it is and I have to go looking for it and I can’t find it easily cause I am not able to change the name to the file or folder to make it easily located. It’s been very frustrating. Hopefully I’m just blind and I can’t find the undo button, reattached audio and the renaming of files/folders cause if it doesn’t get added soon I’m going to have to find a new video editing app.
  • A couple of bugs and trim problem Apr 16, 2020

    By Robloxobbymaster
    So, when I started using this app, I decided to make a 1 minute long video. It went out pretty well, I tested out the trim on that and it worked fine. (Before I knew that it would put the text out of place) So I decided to use it on my 8 minute long video and guess what. It trimmed it but... the text just wasn’t, in the right place. I figured it would keep the text where it was but nope. I thought that I could save it but I put a lot of text in the video. So I just gave up and remade the whole video. I got so frustrated, and once I nearly finished the second video, I accidentally clicked on the illustrations button AND text button at the same time. It ended up making the whole app crash for some weird reason. I just thought it was the normal crashes I usually had while making the video, but that wasn’t the case. Once I reopened my video it crashed again. It just wouldn’t stop crashing. And then that’s when I got FURIOUS!!! HOURS OF WORK DONE IN RETURN FOR NOTHING!!! I tried restarting my iPad but that didn’t work either, it still crashes. I am still upset about the fact that it is just completely gone.
  • Good but... Jul 4, 2019

    By Dr.5335
    This is a really nice software and easy to use. It has helped me a lot with past things and is really helping with present and probably future things. There are a few downsides though. When you put a picture, but then want to trim the time of how long it stays, it will shorten, but you can’t make it longer if you made a mistake. Another thing is you can’t have a clip less than .5 seconds. The app keeps randomly exiting me off it and it keeps losing my most recent progress. It takes a long time to load and a REALLY REALLY REALLY long time to download it and make it a video rather than watching it with the rest of the scenes under it. A horrible spoiler for my family when I show them my mini films. It keeps exiting me off of my movie and this upsets me because I spend so long on it, and it’s not even that long. It’s about 8-10 minutes long, so I’m deleting a bunch of things that I shouldn't have to, and it STILL keeps exiting me off! It was something really special for my family, and now I can’t even watch one full minute of it.
  • Hear me out Aug 21, 2020

    By emi t cool
    Ok. So a few weeks ago, I probably would have given it a 5 star. But first of all, importing the photos takes a whole HEKK of a lot of time. I end up having to import only 3 to 4 at a time, which, I say, takes forever to get everything imported. And that’s not all, pretty much EVERYTHING takes forever to get done, adding text, saving it, deleting a scene, making scenes shorter and longer, I just think “does it really need to take this long?” Finally, you can only save/upload up to three videos before you have to buy pro, which I think, is kind of a downfall for beginners, or for kids, who are just trying to have fun. I mean, everything WORKS fine, it’s just slow and costs money. i DID end up deleting this app and got another one that is completely free and has a lot more quality’s. There is free sound effects, unlike this one. Less importing time, and less time used on EVERYTHING.
  • I love the app features Aug 10, 2020

    By Revjmliles
    I love the app features and that you can save/ export in 4K/ 60 FPS BUT I have to give gm the app only a 3 for two reason— 1. It freezes/ closes on me constantly. I have an iPhone Pro Max with 256GB. I thought upgrading my phone would eliminate the issue (I have a 7 Plus 256GB before)...issue still present. Who knows what I was thinking there? FORTUNATELY, it saves what you had oddly enough. Just crazy annoying and somewhat alarming at first. It get REALLY bad (and slow) for anything over 10 minutes. 2. The other thing is that I like to edit holding my phone in portrait position for balance reasons and so I don’t “boop” features I don’t want to accidentally —this app you must hold in landscape, which makes it awkward...for me anyway. Otherwise—I like this app a lot. Out of all the apps I think it keeps the 4K looking crisper than the others.

    I wanted to learn how to make Gacha videos, so I look up movie makers and this one popped up. I downloaded it which took FOREVER. Anyways after it finally downloaded I opened it in hopes to make a slideshow with my screenshots. It then asked me how long I wanted each slide to be. But bc I was doing a music video each slide had to be held for a different amount of times. I decided to continue in hopes I could change it later on. So I kept adding more screenshots until I didn’t have anymore. I had 73 screenshots and more in the making. But as soon as I finished it said processing it downloading I don’t really remember and it kept downloading and downloading and downloading for a week! I finally gave up. But over all it’s probably just me being an 11 year old and not knowing how to use it. I hope it works for anyone else but not me Sincerely A weird 11 year old
  • Was great to use for years, BUT Apr 18, 2021

    By moo $$$$$
    I started using this app years ago, 2016ish, and it was awesome. It did everything I needed it to for editing. Even bought the full version available at the time which was 10 bucks. Decided to make a video again today, and it has all these features I’ve been using before locked because they want me to subscribe and pay more money even though I payed for the full version of this app before! Trying to get around that, it wouldn’t even let me access all of my video camera roll. Only one video to edit! Sick of these mobile video editing apps asking for more money for things I was able to use before when I had paid already, first Glitché and now you guys! Can’t believe it. I’ll miss this app so much.
  • Not bad but definetly could use improvement Jul 1, 2021

    By nothere33
    I think this app is a solid video editing app but it has many bugs and flaws such as doesnt operate properly when you have low disc storage and some of the features interfere with the overall experience, such as the annotating function and the text options are very clunky at best. Better quality app then some other video editing apps for sure but at the same time, it should have more customaztion options and allow you to be able to upload bigger videos and documents that you would like to arrange together, because that would enhance the overall layouts and allow you to be able to compile better videos and use your photos to their maxiumn potential

    It’s a pretty good app but a little confusing at first a lot of things are for filmmaker pro so if you get the normal filmmaker it has some restrictions but the reason I gave it 3 stars is because I was in the middle of making an edit and it just took me out of the app and to my home page and I clicked on the app again and it keeps doing. I shut down my phone/restarted it and I tried to click on the app then once I click on my project I was working on, it loads and then goes out of the app it’s weird and I’m kinda disappointed. And my phone isn’t old or broke it’s and iPhone 8 Plus and I haven’t dropped it since I got it so I think it’s a glitch in the app I don’t know but it’s kind of frustrating but other than the glitch the actual app is good and easy to use once you figure it out
  • It has potential Apr 6, 2020

    By justsomememedued
    Honestly I tried making a full on ur video on this and I had so much problems with it. For one every time I crop the video or something for some reason it also shortens the video too? And there’s a lot of audio issues I got while trying to edit and sometimes if I were to attempt to paste a single clip to make it sort of loop it doesn’t even transition the audio smoothly you can tell that there was a cut in the video which is annoying and I tried the same thing in another app and it did it perfectly. There’s also the fact if I split a clip most of the time you’ll be able to see a green line on the side in the split clip and most of the times it’ll just cut to black and audio would still play and the video would just be missing feo some reason which again is really annoying, The chroma key is pretty bad too I would press on the color I’m trying to chroma key out but it chroma keys everything but the color I tapped. I know these may sound like a me problem it might even annoy you too when you’re trying to make a video and I only got to make the intro bit of the video I didn’t even get to the rest before giving up because of how many issues I had. Overall this app has some great potential but unless they fix this I wouldn’t recommend using it for now
  • I was SHOCKED Aug 22, 2019

    By Slime_loving_dolphin
    I worked for long, hard hours to put together a movie for me to enjoy with my family. When my movie was finally completed, I was thrilled and the time has come for me to upload the movie to my camera app. But there was a bit of a problem. In this app, apparently you have to pay for the PRO version and pay money in order to export into your photos. This was a huge shocker because I worked so hard to come to find there is no way to save the movie. The only way to save the movie is to press the expand screen button and screen record the movie into your camera app, but in the corner there’s this yellow arrow that won’t disappear that says, “Remove limit” so even if you do screen record to post it, your viewers will have their minds on why there’s a “Remove limit” icon on the upper left corner. Even if they would just get rid of that annoying announcement that tells me to “Remove limit” I wouldn’t be writing this poor review, but because of that small icon, my whole time and commitment to the completion of the video was wasted and the video itself was wasted as well.
  • If you want a frustrating experience Jul 13, 2020

    By cool-123
    Really if you want to work slower this app is for you. Some features are great but the cons greatly out weigh them. Dealing with this app is pretty frustrating. Trying to split or trim your video is like threading a needle with a macro scope. Not “micro”, MACRO! Plus unnecessary steps to do it. First click video while it zooms out your entire project so you get the least accurate cut possible. You better not have a video longer the 30 seconds if you want accurate. Why not zoom in so I can see the frames. Hit the action, adjust, hit the check mark. In that exact order. Why?! If you adjust then hit split it resets so you have to adjust it again. Why not have it split from the tick marks current position. Maybe you want to undo that trim. Good luck. Better start over. Get rid of that check mark, making it 3 steps. How about adjust then hit trim. Bam 2 steps. And put a undo button. If there is one then its definitely not visible.
  • Can’t export video because of update Jul 27, 2021

    By enolp
    I’ve been using the free version as I don’t have the money to pay for the subscription. The watermark is so big it may as well cover a quarter of the screen, and after the app was updated some features I previously had used on a video became premier access only so now I can’t export it without paying, which as I said previously isn’t going to happen. Even worse, the main reason I want to export this project is so I can delete this stupid app off my phone. The app worked well enough for a time but now I have a better app to replace it and want to be able to delete this one without deleting the video I spent hours editing together. I even went back and tried to re-edit the bits of the video where I had previously used features that are now premium access only, but it still won’t let me export and I don’t know why. I’m fuming.
  • Frustrating Jun 22, 2018

    By Stacy&Charlie
    This could be a great app; however, there are several issues that had me so frustrated after two hours I trashed it. First, there is no undo. If you accidently hit the wrong function - too bad. You get to start all over! Second, under the scissors icon, it defaults to trim. If you forget to change it to cut - guess what? You get to start all over, again. (An undo function would correct this) Third, there is no trash can. You can not simply trash a segment. I was force to cut a segment down to the smallest snippet instead. Ridiculous. And lastly, if you are fortunate enough to finish your video edits, you get to pay a hidden charge to remove a watermark. That would have been nice to know up front! This app has great potential if those problems could be corrected. Frustrated the last two hours were a total waste and now I get to go look for another video editing app.
  • Good app, but bugs and crashes:( May 21, 2019

    By :(((((((((((((()))))))))))))):
    I spent 6 hours and 23 minutes on a specific edit, and i was just finishing up when the app crashes and sends me back to the home screen. Several times, i have restarted my iphone and closed out windows and still nothing has changed. Other edits will work, but this specific one will not. I am very disappointed given the amount of time and effort put into my piece for such to happen. Hopefully you can help me with this problem :( Also greatly dissatisfied that such a good simple app for editing has to crash like this, now have to find another. However I was very impressed with all the editing options and tools, very helpful. Although the volume option is not strong, all of the other coloring and filters worked great! I am hoping you can address this problem for future references and others who may face the same issue.
  • I don’t know if it was the update or what?!? Dec 27, 2017

    By stevn h
    Let me start by stating that the app at one point was glorious. However I’ve been using it heavily as of late and I have slowly been let down. I have stayed up until 2 am putting finishing touches on a project when suddenly the app exits to the home screen. I re-entered the app to find that my project was not opening and that it would consistently kick me to my home screen. I was put down, all of my work was gone and I was highly upset. I immediately tried to recreate the content in which I had lost and give the app a second chance. I edited for hours. Then it happened. The app again exited to the home screen and would not load. I was destroyed. I have given the money for the app and I am not satisfied with what I have gotten back in return. Please do something. Take me back to the great application it once was. Thank you
  • Developer has become greedy. May 10, 2020

    By Jackett777
    Purchased full version a few years back with a different apple account on my old iPod for $10. Great app for $10. I recently got an iPhone and saw this app and remembered loving it on my iPod. Very easy to use. However, I was very disappointed to try to restore my purchase using my other Apple ID to find that it would not restore. Now I am left with 3 options: 1) pay $70 for what I had previously purchased for $10. 2) pay a subscription for the app, for a monthly fee of $10, the same price I had already paid to own it previously. 3) buy LumaFusion. $30 for an app is looking better seen that this developer wants $70 for this app now. Outrageous. LumaFusion is more feature filled than this for half the price. I’m disappointed because the app is good, but it’s gotten expensive.
  • App crash/bug. HELP! Oct 8, 2020

    By wtfbro?
    I had some success and satisfaction with this app until... I was creating a lyric video and was almost finished with the editing (which you can imagine is lengthy and intricate). As I was using the “voice to text” feature the app crashed! No biggie because the work was saved BUT when I went to open my project it kept crashing(was un-executable). Luckily I was able to retrieve the imagery I used but it was a hassle because I had to get each bit (of about 30 images) individually. The video was around 3 mins, but for this project the timing had to be very precise (which is why I opted to use the voice to text/server equipped feature-don’t know the exact term not the device option). Since I was persistent about completing the project I attempted a second time and had the same result. CAN ANYONE PLEASE TELL ME IF THERE IS A WAY TO REFRESH THE APP/RETRIEVE A PROJECT WITHOUT LOSING YOUR WORK. This took alot of time to complete!!!! I like to test out apps before buying and I am glad I did. If the bug issue was fixed and the issue of having better shortcuts was fixed I would buy. I would recommend caution in purchasing this app. I guess I will have to try again with another app.
  • Good App, but Misleading Jun 25, 2020

    By lilly spitzer
    THE GOOD: This is a very good editing app if you want to do some quick and easy video editing and you don’t have a computer with you. It’s easy, simple, and basic. I found no problems with how smooth it was running, and i was editing more that a minute and a half of footage. There was a wide range of fonts, colors, transitions, and it was very easy to add music. THE BAD: However, this app is extremely misleading. You can’t even export your video without paying for the Pro Version, which can be costly for such a simple editing software. I was forced to pay $6 just to export and save my video. There is really no point in downloading this app unless you want to pay to use it. The free version also only has a limited selection of the vast library of fonts, music and sound effects, and transitions. FINAL VERSICT: If you are willing to pay a monthly fee for a good app that’s easy to use, then this app is for you. If you do not wish to spend any money on a video editing app, then this isn’t for you. Don’t get it if you don’t want to spend money. There are probably many other apps that offer the same amount if not more features for free.
  • A wretched glob of scum stuck to the bottom the worn out tennis shoe that is the App Store Sep 22, 2019

    By Yaküb Poi
    I’ll keep this short, like you should keep the videos you use this app for, because in order to produce a video longer than some arbitrary time you have to purchase Filmmaker pro (Tm). That’s reasonable (the pricing isn’t, but whatever it’s an ok app so I bought it). I bought a month long subscription that i get to remember to cancel before it charges me the same rate again next month because I wanted to make one video. I finished editing it last night and opened the app today to export it today. Uh oh I don’t have the pro version anymore. I try to restore my purchase. “Your purchases were successfully restored”; nope. Sure were not successfully restored. I try to pay for a month long subscription AGAIN to try and not waste over 10 hours of editing I’ve already put into it. I can’t buy it because I’m already subscribed. I do this entire process multiple times trying to desperately not have just wasted so many frustrating hours trying to edit a video on my phone to begin with. I am going to go buy some cheap trinket from a dollar store and smash it into smithereens now. -10/arbitrary scoring number. This app is either a scam or complete garbage. This was longer than intended, just like the tumultuous march through Hell that is dealing with Filmmaker “Pro”
  • A serious let down Sep 2, 2020

    By nothank$3459
    I have been working with this app for two years now. It operation is sub par, glitchy, and frustrating. I dealt with it because the interface was user friendly. There would be hours before where it would crash, freeze, delete a video but it wasn’t worth getting worked up about. I have now spent 24 hours, excusing the time to sleep, trying to get this app to load so I could finish my work and get paid. It was slow to load, so I thought I will delete some old content to help with the lag, this has worked in the past. BIGGEST REGRET! The app was frozen for 15 minutes, I was trying to be patient, I had to force stop the app, and now here we are. Day two and it still won’t open. Weeks of work are now in the filmmaker void unable to be accessed and that’s just the content I’m currently trying to work with let alone the months of work I have stored on the app that are now gone because if i delete the app to reinstall my data will be lost. Heartbroken and frustrated. If you’re looking to be frustrated often and editing a simple video to take longer than necessary because of slow loading and glitching download this app. You will be disappointed.
  • “Restore” and “Contact Us” Doesn’t work Jan 26, 2019

    By genericlizard
    I signed up for the $5.99 monthly Pro plan to test for my needs. After a week or so, I decided to cancel after the first month, so I changed my subscription. I tried producing more videos (they have great fonts, and transitions and some music options in the pro version) and no longer had access to the pro options though I was still within my paid month. When I clicked “restore” it restored the monthly subscription but not the pro access in the app. I uninstalled/ reinstalled and still not working. When I try to use a pro font, I get a pop-up that asks me to restore. When I click restore, I get a pop up saying it was successful. And then when I try to use the pro font, I get a pop-up that says restore. When I click the “contact us“ link to try to reach out to their support, it didn’t go anywhere. But when I click the link to leave a review just below it, I was offered the ability to leave a review. Normally I would just reach out to support before leaving a bad review but this may be the only way to contact them. The videos I was able to create were quality but the app has some bugs that I need addressed.
  • Disappointed Jul 14, 2020

    By E.K.M.35
    The app was great. I was editing my video with pictures and adding words. It took me a while and I was proud of it. Then, I added some music to it. Just as I was about to watch it, to make sure it was how I wanted it, it said that I wouldn’t be able to share it unless I paid money and got PRO. That was the whole point I made it though! ☹️ I wanted to make a video and post it FOR FREE! Then, I thought that maybe I wouldn’t have to pay to share my video if I took the music off, but I couldn’t take it off! And it wouldn’t even let me screen record my video! I wish that it would’ve told me that I would have to pay in order to share it before I made the video. Then I just would’ve deleted the app and happily looked for a different one. I spent a lot of work on this video so that I could share it, but I couldn’t! It was really disappointing! Also, if it is “too long” you’ll have to close the app and then go back into it in order to keep editing your video! ( Do NOT get this app unless your willing to pay and you don’t care about your time! 😤😭
  • What happened???? Nov 30, 2019

    By lunamoon_luna
    This used to be such an amazing app! Almost everything was free and it was very accessible. It used to be my absolute favorite app to edit videos and photos because it was so easy to control and not that complicated. Now if you want to share or save the video/picture that you made to your photos it will ask you to buy something for like $5 a month! That’s $60 a YEAR to keep a video that you made?? Many fonts also used to be free, but now they want the $5 a month thing. Now I have to watch multiple tutorials to figure out how to use a more complicated FREE app. I would much rather struggle and have to learn a new app then pay $60 dollars a year though. I had recommended this app the my friends and now I realize I need to tell them that they should no longer use it. I hope that anyone who wants to get this app sees this and realizes what a waste of time it would be to download this if you can’t even keep your own videos and photos and are limited to what you can actually do for free. Thanks for reading all of this and right after I submit this review I will be deleting this app.
  • Too many bugs, missing features, and all around agrevations Mar 7, 2020

    By alskonedi
    Let me first say, I sent an email to the “contact” email about some of these issues this morning and not received even an automated response so I am not just putting this out here without trying to find help with the issues. I purchased this app with great excitement because of the fonts but unfortunately I am finding out it is not worth the price. For starters there is no “undo” feature which makes splitting (which by the way does not work) and cutting a video in the correct place impossible. If you do cut it and it is wrong, your only option is to reload the video and try again. I finally gave up and decided to do the video editing in my old program and then import it into this one. Makes sense since I like the fonts, right? Wrong. Half the time you have to tap the screen five times to be able to select the word if you are wanting to move it then when you do manage to select it, if you are wanting to use another word on the slide as a reference for where to place it, you cannot see the other word. This results in you having to guess, check, guess, again, check, guess again, etc. This is ridiculous. Next issue, sometimes, for no known reason, the words decide to darken the screen when they come in, the only way to correct this issue is to adjust the opacity, which in turn makes the word...INVISIBLE. Your fonts are great but not that great. Cancelling my subscription and going back to my other app.
  • Do not recommend for anything halfway serious Mar 5, 2021

    By JackDrennan
    I have been working on a project for a month or so, have about 8 minutes of footage for this project and all of a sudden the text boxes on the timeline disappeared. So after I needed to move around scenes, the text boxes can’t be moved so they bleed over other scenes and there’s nothing I can do about it. I am going to have to start all over and it’s a MAJOR WASTE OF TIME. I’ve spent countless hours editing this crap. Also, even with a BRAND NEW IPAD, adding in any more than 5 minutes of footage into a project causes your app to lag and run slowly whenever you try to work on the project. And they have the audacity to charge you money for this? I’d expect some effort to be put in your product if you want to steal my money. Overall very dissatisfied and angry that I wasted so much time on this and have to redo everything I did because of a very nonsensical glitch. Or if it’s by design for text boxes to randomly disappear and be unable to edit, then that’s an absolutely terrible design.
  • No no no no… Sep 6, 2021

    By GtGudKid
    You’re a known company (I’d expect from the amount of downloads the app gets) but yet you put this update out? You removed the landscape editing for what? So a vertical way of editing can replace it? Ok that’s fine but the fact that I can’t go back to landscape editing is a whole downgrade. When you update a feature you DON’T remove one that’s already working. No more landscape editing, and it’s not even an option, now you’re forced to edit only vertically. If there’s something I miss please tell me. Otherwise it stays at one star for them not thinking before updating. Both ways of editing as an option would have been perfect, not one. Edit: I like how they responded to my review saying they were gonna add the landscape editing feature back in the “next update” but failed to do so. I’ve saw their response the second I got the notification and wasn’t gonna re-edit my review till I saw change. And I’m glad I never did, cause they still didn’t add the feature back 😂
  • i’m literally having a mental breakdown Sep 2, 2019

    By GabbyLopes
    i spend MONTHS making a vlog for something i did over the summer. it took forever because every SINGLE TIME i edited a clip, i would get kicked out the app. even though this was frustrating and such a waste of time, i still continued to make the vlog because i wanted to complete it. not to mention, EVERY TIME I GOT KICKED OFF, it would take at LEAST three minutes to reload the whole video which is ridiculous. i spend HOURS finishing the video months later and i think it’s really good. i go to download the video so i can share it to everyone who was in the vlog and you have the pay for it. not to mention my sound COMPLETELY DISAPPEARED. i swear to god this is so frustrating the app isn’t worth it. the sound only works when not on full screen. i’m literally crying over months of work going down the drain because of this poor choice in an app which i used to rely on. don’t get the app it’s not worth the aggravation and disappointment in the end. i literally feel depressed rn because of you.
  • App is NOT free (limited trials) Aug 14, 2021

    By robertperez14
    I liked the app at first but once I realized there was a limit to how many videos I could export, I deleted it. It used to be free with unlimited trials but I guess the update put a limit to how many videos could be created. Personally when I’m forced to pay for an app, I don’t care how good it is, I immediately delete it and I think a lot of other users feel the same way. Don’t force your users to pay for something because at the end of the day, that’s not going to get you more purchases. I’m sorry but you lost a user, and I’ll make sure to make it known to everyone I recommended this app to, too delete it and try another app because it’s simply not worth it. Note to developers: Make the app free again with limited features but with the option for unlimited video exports and maybe my opinion of the app will change and I would be willing to “explore” some of the premium features.
