Great app with possible trouble shooting issues
Great app however experiencing an issue today. Everything fine last night. Worked all afternoon. But now every time I save it crashes before the download gets saved to my library on my device.
I’ve done all on my part to see if was my phone. But no such luck. Maybe it needs an update possibly?
I like this app a lot. I actually trying to insert the clips in a video I’m making for my business. Very helpful.
I may suggest the swipe to the right action for text or images have a slower option. Unless using a video editor to slow it down so text can be read, it’s difficult to read or see the image if used.
Other than that and the trouble shoot issue, I’m pleased. I’d rate it 5 stars had my video be savable. I will once it’s fixed

Hi there, thanks for the review! And sorry abut the issue you're having with saving.
We have a new version coming this / next week, which has updates around rendering and output quality too. Perhaps that'll do the trick. In the meantime, if you'd like to contact us on hello@weareplays to discuss the issue further that would be great.
Thanks again, Team PLAYS
Love the app. Would like to see a feature added for background color changes. Maybe a color match feature as well. Otherwise a great tool.

Hey Aus10 Powers, thanks for the feedback and the good review, we agree that colour matching would certainly be useful. Regarding the background colour changes - if you're referring to changing the flat background colour you can do this by tapping the droplet icon at the foot of the text tab again which will toggle from text colour to background colour (tap again to switch back).
I am looking to rebrand a tech startup I have with my friends and this is helping me brainstorm sooo many ideas in regards to motion. I was able to customize awesome text animations with ease.
Is there a way to change the background color? Or am I missing something?
Besides that, I feel like this app has some really good potential. I am definitely looking forward to future updates!

Hi Cristian, Thanks for the review and glad you are enjoying PLAYS.
Yes you can indeed change the background colour. When in the type menu, and in the colour tab, if you tap the colour drop icon, you will cycle between type colour and background colour, from which you can use the sliders to play with colour.
Lot's of updates coming. You can follow us on IG @weareplays for news.
Thanks, Team PLAYS
