So easy to edit!

This app is really good I find it so simple and quick to edit. A new feature I’d like to see is if you could move the title around the screen to place it where you want it. Also it really needs some more music provided. Something happened recently tho, I had spent hours and hours editing this video and I was nearly done and the app had been constantly crashing and glitching, and the next time I went to do the last bit on that video, the app crashed and it hasn’t let me into it since. I’ve tried everything to get into the app, my phone has plenty of storage left and the app is up to date so that’s not the problem. If I delete the app and get it back again I’ll lose all that editing I did. Please make an update soon and fix the glitches, maybe if I can update it it’ll let me in. Thanks

Love but one thing

I totally recommend this app to everyone I love every single thing about it accept that u can’t find real songs albums and artists let me explain ok so first when you go onto the small plus in the top right hand corner a little tab sort of thing comes down then you look at the bottom of the tab press on audio and then you look at all the things audio includes like artists, albums, playlists etc. then say you tap on artists and type up Katy Perry does it come up with all her songs... no it comes up with nothing unless I just put in a K and it comes up with sound effects and tracks that have the letter K in them so please make iMovie so I can add real songs into it. Other wise I love this app and suggest it to all I hope you take the time to read my review BYE 👋

Love this app, but when I add music I want to add another song, I try to crop it but you can only delete it because it automatically moves the other song with it or goes back to how it was. Also, please add more sound effects, there are a good amount already but maybe you could add more house and animal sounds like a a dog, cat, lion, etc. Window shutting, crash, etc. things like that could make the movie more advanced, intriguing & dramatic. Please add more themes for customisable movie option. IDEA: Add the option to place and change the size of shapes, clothes, animals etc. like you could add a hat on a person and make them move, that would be cool. Besides all this, this app is great. Sorry for this long review but I really hope you take all of this into consideration. Thank you, J.
