Great app! Oh wait

I installed this app and I love it! I only wish you could do timeslaps without having to use my regular camera, and the recording it on the clip, it also does not record in
Slow mode. It lets you play music which is awesome, but you have to have the music play for the whole thing, which is kind of annoying sometimes, other than that, this is an awesome free app for people who want to start learning to make and edit videos.😄
So I would totally recommend this app! If you read some of the other reviews, it talks about crashing, I have never had this problem, I think it either needs updated, because when I tried to reinstall it after offloading it, It would not work, then I got a new notification saying there was an update for it, I updated it and then tried again and it worked, but it could also could be the device. Anyway, loved this app and I totally recommend it! 😄
So actually I wrote this just yesterday and got on clips today, and my some of my projects will not download, or play. ☹️
This is a big bummer, because I have worked hard on some of the projects that won’t work now, if you do get, or have clips, It might be best to only do like, ten projects, or it will not work. Well, now that that happened, I don’t really recommend it anymore.☹️

Former Glory

This used to be a five star app, but those days are gone now. Recent updates have made this app slow. There’s a notable delay when pressing the record button now that leaves your clips looking awkward and requiring trimming. I loved all the updates with new title cards as they were always top-notch and added quality to a video. I think Apple may have pushed this app too far in all the wrong ways. In both my iPhone 10S and iPhone 11 this app feels slow and sluggish. It’s a former glory of what it once was and I hope to see it return to that glory so I can update this review with a more positive outlook. I’m hoping Apple realizes that this is not and should not be iMovie so they can take a step back and grow this app to its full potential.

All-in-all it’s free, it is still great to use, and it’s fun to make little videos to send to your friends or family. I even use it to make little tutorial videos for work. I would recommend giving it a try. It’s intuitive and easy to use, albeit frustratingly slow at times to the point of unusable.

My favorite

Out of all the editing apps I have this is my favorite one to use now I use to be frustrated how if you put a sound track on it made it play the whole video so in other words you couldn’t edit how long the music plays but all you have to do is well it doesn’t matter if it’s at the beginning middle or end of your video what you do is put the music on the part you want the music on save that clip video you made with the sound track and then you go on creating a new clips go to your videos and the part that you saved with your sound track will be there and then you can ad as much as you want. But anyways I love love absolutely love this app and it’s the easiest one to use,now you may think it sounded complicated when I was telling you how to use the sound track😅 but trust me it’s not just see for you self and try it it’s a lot easier than it sounds so anyways well done and I love this app😍👌👍
