This app needs a lot of improvements

I thought this app was really fun because i saw my friend using it. Then i got it and i hated it. It should be like snap chat where you can write things on it if your not using it for Instagram and the boomerang should be longer. The app should make it to were if you are doing a boomerang while jumping it shouldn't show your feet hit the ground. I saw another person write that you should be able to use previous videos that you have recorded and i agree with that. This app needs way more improvements than this. It would take me literally a day to list all the improvements. Will this app please PLEASE try to fix the things i listed and what other people listed?? Then if yall did that i would rate it five stars not 3 stars. I would recommend boomerang only ONLY if the app does the improvements.

Ok, things can be improved

So I got the app because I saw my friend using it. I looked really fun and cool so I got it. But I didn’t really like it. The main problem is the time you have to take the boomerang. Like literally if you tried to jump, you could only see your feet landing. If you were trying to show a group of friends you are with, you wouldn’t have enough time to show everyone so you have to quickly do it so you can get everyone in. You end up going so fast that you can’t even see the people’s faces so theirs no point. The next complaint I have is I feel that you should be able to write stuff on it like snapchat bc not everyone wants to use it on Instagram. I have seen other comments on these things so I’m not the only one. I could honestly write a paper on the mistakes. Just plz fix it!
