Almost great

Does an incredible job of showing you the image you’re going to capture, but maybe 60% of the time the app crashes after I take a picture and I have to reopen it to get back to shooting and I invariably lose the picture I thought I took. The other problem is i’ll shoot a picture widescreen and the app saves the picture vertically and only a sliver of the image I tried to capture. No kind of fun. I’m almost about to delete the app if this continues. It’s a real bummer because when it works, this app is great.

An amazing app!... at least when it doesn’t crash

Let me start out about what I love about the app, because it has so many great things. The ability to adjust focused manually is great, the filters are great, the manual color tone adjustment is great, the grid could use some work because I’d kind of still like to use the rule of 3rds when in a deferent aspect ratio. The reason this review has to be 1 star is because of a the fact that 90% of the time, I can’t stop recording without the video failing to process or the app just outright crashing when I try to save. This app is essential all show and would not recommend for people to use for filming projects in its current state. Fix the crashing problem and you have an amazing video app, but there’s nothing more annoying that having to shoot a scene 100 times because the app crashes every time you stop recording. I will definitely change my rating once this issue gets fixed. But for now I’m just disappointed

Thanks for taking the time to leave this feedback. We're glad you to hear you like the app, but sorry about those crashes. If you'll email us at we can work with you to figure out what is causing them. We'd also like to learn more about how you use the grid. Thanks!

This video producer loves it

It’s a great app for point and shoot moments for people who want to throw a little extra flavor on the video or picture. It’s not a full on camera app. There are plenty of apps for that. This is for the people who want to choose the aspect ratio for their memories and maybe toss in a few other options as well. It’s worth the money and comes from one of the greatest cinematographers around. Cannot recommend it enough.
