Where is hands-free?!
Using this app to add subtitles to Instagram stories and videos (why isn’t this function available within Instagram already to make it more accessible for those with hearing impairments?!) and while I appreciate the filters and gifs from my Instagram account now being a part of this app, the one feature I really need is hands-free. I need to record tutorials and how-tos using both of my hands with my phone attached to a tripod, so I can’t keep my finger on the record button. This feels like a big oversight! And as mentioned above, why does this need to be a separate app - can’t you just add subtitle capabilities to the main Instagram app? You can send Instagram stories to close friends only already, so I don’t see this point of any of this being separate.
Don't read the reviews, it was updated!
I see a lot of other reviews mention missing features and whatnot. The app must've been recently updated, since I didn't find anything missing (well, except chat themes) from the regular app. DMs to everyone, camera filters, replies and custom emoji replies, pretty much everything. It even has some features that the regular app doesn't have, like a way to see a list of all sent images in a chat.
I was literally think the other day "wouldn't it be cool if the communication part of ig was available as a separate app?" And lo and behold, this thing was brought to my attention! Truly ideal if you constantly find yourself opening ig to reply to a message only to have yourself sucked into the feed and finding two hours later that you didn't even do the thing that you intended in the first place. This is a great solution for procrastinators alike. Procrastinators who also need to reply to people's messages.
Half the time it works
Worked great until about a week ago, now I have tried several times to get a few different videos to caption and for whatever reason it turns the video from upright to sideways (and cuts off half the video) when trying to add captions and I cannot fix it no matter how many times I will re-save a video and try it again. The length of the video does not seem to matter, it’s happened both with 30 second and 15 second videos. Also if music is playing and I try to record it tends to freeze and blur the screen. If I hit the button to record again it stays frozen to the screen but will record a video...I just can’t see it until I’m done. If it doesn’t do that then the whole app freezes and I have to close it and try again. If they can fix these ASAP the app would be much better.
