Big C [also charlie doyle!] ,

It is great but it has a few problems. (Fixed)

I love this app and make “movies” on it a lot, but you have to let the music play for the whole video, what if hard rock is playing at a sad moment!?! Also, in the posters column you can’t edit the texts that are Star Wars related, speaking of that it also says a long time ago in a galaxy far far away. But it doesn’t have a Star Wars intro on it. Eh, if it did you still wouldn’t be able to edit it. You also can’t use slow Mo on it, which is terrible. Other than that, it is a great app. (But I hope the people who created this app look at this review and fix the app) see y’all’s later

I Don’t Recommend

I honestly thought this app was great at first, but then when I found out there were better editing apps I downloaded like Videoshop, I realized this app was literal trash compared to other editing apps. The major problem is how we can’t resize the size of the screen. Like, I have a picture the size of my iPhone screen and when it doesn’t fit, I either have to make it zoomed in where I can’t see the whole thing or zoomed out too much where it’s atrocious. When I’m trying to move my picture, it’s like so wiggly and moves so much where when I add the next it’s not in the same spot. It’s honestly annoying. Also, the stickers were annoying because I needed them to pop up and they were fading on and fading back off. There aren’t a lot of music varieties which is irrelevant and half the music (the only good ones) are copyrighted. While trimming videos, I can’t trim the middle of the video I have to do it how long I want it and I can’t cut out parts. If I wanted to do that I would just do that in the app Photos my iPhone came with. And, the texts are super hideous! You can’t actually choose a font out of a bunch of varieties they have you pick from like 10 they have that are ugly and you can’t change the colors. Honestly, if you’re looking for editing apps, this one isn’t the one you’re gonna want. Get Videoshop or Inshot or something.

Clips 1.0 by 2021

Hello, Apple! I’m gonna have to tell you this, but, “Clips 1.0 was 3 years ago? 😮 Oh my gosh!” 😵 But also, I’m gonna tell you this, “version 3.0 is getting really really close to 1.0”. 😎 So far, you have, 3.0, 2.0 and 1.0. 🙂 So if you can get Clips 1.0 back by 2021, then I’ll be extremely excited and happy, and I’ll even make videos and mute the little microphone, to re-visit my memories back from 2017. 😆 And yes, I recorded something scary making a noise in a tree outside. 😯 And I also remember that I muted and unmuted the little microphone when I was about to make a video. 😏 And I remember the keyword about Clips 1.0, and that was to, “Speak clearly”, I don’t know, I just want my Clips 1.0 memories to return to me by 2021. 😪I was outside before COVID was a thing, so I was fine. 🙃 Cool version and app by the way, it reminds me of Clips 1.0. And 2.0. 😀
