Please read this before writing anything else (only ppl with lag issues)

If you’re on an iPhone SE you will have some lag on apps same with the i phone 6s There call lag and it’s rare to happen. Or most of the times it’s an replace battery which didn’t happen because some on bought it in the Apple store so if you got the same lag issues on one of these phones such as 6s if will lag a LOT (only for mini ones xd) if on low battery so charge well not quite the same with the iPhone SE. se has an small lag (the only reason I know I been use the two and now I’m using the se (screen broke 6s)). I was playing “Roblox” and didn’t have a HUGE OR A BIG WHICH ANNOYS PEOPLE AND THE EST DRUMS MIGHT SUFFER FROM PAIN AND AGONY BuT a small not so annoying and very peaceful (yes they do rq just for lag (rq stands for rage quit)) so if you have low battery or it’s over heating (which imma talk about later it’s night time for me) iPhone 6s will L-L-L-L-L-L-L-L-a-a-g-g a lot a bit is not the same with the iPhone SE hope you people have a great day and not making comment of lag

So happy I paid $40 for this... not. I’ve had nothing but issues with lag on every single thing I do. For example, I go to split a clip & it freezes for a good 8 seconds before it actually clips it. Try to undo that? Another 8 second freeze. Now it crashes and kicks me out whenever it feels Ike it. OH ALSO! It will delete your clips & say it’s because you deleted the media off your phone when you never did. Literally anything I do, it freezes. This app is trash, don’t waste your money.

UPDATE! App still continues to lag if you try editing a video over 10 mins in length. I’m coming on here to update this review because this happened just now while trying to use app again.

AS I WAS EDITING, (which mind you has a good amount of splitting both video & voiceover recordings from my mic and being sure they match up in sync perfectly.. A LOT of effort put into this) the media goes red MID CUT & says it cannot be found... the media is still on my phone like it was when it initially pulled it. Ruined & Ridiculous! It’s just so unfortunate that you pay for an app like this with all it has to offer... and you implement multiple things like music/video/text/voiceover and it can’t even keep up with using all of them without such lag.

Hi, we did a quick test, but the app works fine. This might be caused by specific video clips or hardware. To help you with this, please contact our support team through "Send Feedback" in app Settings, and tell us more specific about the concern. We will help you at the earliest. Thank you.

I love it but..

Hey just to start off I love this app and I am so happy that you put it on iOS! I make gacha life videos and I personally think that power director makes my videos so much better. The first think I don’t really like is the watermark. I’m just a kid so I can’t pay like 40 dollars a year for the premium membership, so I would like it if you could be able to remove the watermark for free. The second weird thing is that when I try to add a picture or something it says like “unable to place video/picture see if it is in your library” and I do check my library and the picture/video is there so I’m a little confused I really want to know what’s up with that it might be sort of a bug or something and I just want to know if you can maybe get rid of that. But other than that I LOVE this app I would really recommend this app. Bye and keep up the good work!

Hi, thanks for your feedback and suggestion. About the concern of adding video/photos, I guess the media is still on your iCloud shared album. Try download the media in the Photos app first and then adding them to your project timeline again. If it is not the case, you may use the Send Feedback in the PowerDirector Settings menu to contact us. We will help you out.
