Love this app but with Instagram Stories and Snapchat constantly updating their stickers to reflect the season, I’m worried Clips will get lose in the shuffle. For instance, I want to make a Christmas themed movie, but only Summer is listed under the occasions. You would think Fall/Winter would be a no brainer.

It’s a shame because this app has so much potential, but there’s more content available on the other platforms, so I generally just import a video on one of the other two, add all my filters, stickers, text, etc. and just save it to my camera roll. By doing that, Clips just becomes a way to merge the videos, rather than edit them within the app. There are cool options, but with the right additions and more updates, things won’t get stale so fast. Would love to see them fix this, as it seems many users are begging for the same content.

Very Nice😁

Clips is a great app for making video rolls with amazing effects. It gives you so many abilities, even to add music! You can add multiple video clips to one project, and multiple projects at the same time! It’s so fun! I am known as a genius at making video clips thanks to it😇.
Some downsides are that you can’t record time-lapse in it, so you have to do it through your camera app and it will eat up your storage( it has to remain intact in your storage to be in the clip ). Also if you record a slo-mo, and put it in to the project, it just won’t have the slo-mo effect. The last one is that you can’t choose different music in one clip. You have to choose one soundtrack for the whole clip. The problem with this Is that some parts of the project don't set the theme in the music.
I love clips. Spreading the app to my other friends has made them thank me for it😆. But some things better edited. Just some little smudges needed to be erased. But otherwise, Great app!

2 stars

Ok so I got clips about a year ago and absolutely LOVED it. I don’t know if it’s just me or if it’s something wrong with the app, But 3 weeks ago,(or maybe 4) It started messing up every time I closed out the app and came back. For example, A few minutes ago I was making a video and then it froze so I closed out the app, and tried again. When I went back to the app, everything except two clips had been deleted somehow. The reason I still gave this app 4 stars is because I think that it could’ve just been my iPad. (Because I barely have any storage left so that might effect the app) Anyway, besides that stuff, this app is amazing.🤩 I love that it lets you add background music. I have made so many videos and I truly do love this app.😊

It’s a month later now and it literally does this on every single video I make. I still think it could just be my iPad but I’m changing my review to three stars because I work really hard on every single video and every time I go off of clips it deletes everything except for two clips. I think it is just me, but if it’s not, I really hope they will change it.

It's June 24 now and I really don't want to say this but whenever I think about how much hard work I do to make the video, and then how it all gets deleted, I'm starting to think I kind of...hate this app. And, Now, instead of deleting all but 2 clips, it deletes all of them. I REALLY hope they will change it. Like, REALLY. I also changed it to 2 stars.
