Great app with Problems

I really like this app although I think that there should be a settings option so you can make the pictures not move. If there is already one, I’m not aware of it, and a lot of other people don’t either.
Please add this! I just want to say that the editing is amazing and that, but my saving has been glitchy. Sometimes it saves, sometimes it doesn’t. Also, most of the time the background noises make more sound than the edited in noises and my friends and I. Please fix that. I am nine years old, please excuse my grammar and spelling! Two more things. One, Can you make a thing where you can delete certain parts of the video, as if if you have your hand in the video, you can click a button and delete your hand, but everything else stays there. Two, Can you add a drawing tool where you click the button and pick a colour and brush then draw? Thank you!

Fix this!

Hello there my name is James I think this app is pretty great but there is a couple things I would like you to fix 1. When I transport files from OneDrive to iMovie it says ‘scanning complete iMovie will not accept this file’
2. It’s very glitchy to edit with when I finally figured out how to take files from onedrive to iMovie I had to delete the app and reinstall it to work but when I did iMovie glitched and lagged kicked me out and when I finally got in I tried transferring my movie to my photos/videos the transportation would not work it would just be stuck were it’s stuck I guess
3. iMovie has made my iPad a very glitchy platform please make this app glitch free
4. When I downloaded a file onto iMovie it wouldn’t play unless I go back and download it again but when I downloaded the file I had about 1 min till it wouldn’t work again and say download again
Please fix these things because I love this app and I really want to keep it but I can’t keep it if it always does these things Please fix this PLEASEEEEEE!!! 🥺🥺🥺

It’s good but I’m sad now

I used to use this all the time but now I can’t and it’s more of my fault. I used to use this a lot but it took up a lot of storage, including the documents and data. I decided I was going to delete it and get it back so that the documents and data don’t take up so much storage. When I deleted it, I had 800 megabytes of storage left. The app is only 600 megabytes so I tried downloading it again. It said I don’t have enough storage when I do. Also I need the IOS 14 update? It says I can download an older version but according to my iPad, I don’t have enough storage. It is great for editing but now I wish I had not deleted it. But I still recommend this for people that want to edit videos. It’s pretty good, just don’t delete it if you like it and you want to free up storage. But I hope I can download it again soon.
