Be Sure Before You Purchase

Let me start by saying this makes beautiful slideshows. After watching a few instructional videos, I found it fairly easy to put together my first slideshow of some recent travels (something I've been doing for the last 10 years using an old iMovie program). Wanting to use music I'd purchased from iTunes as my soundtrack, i discovered I had to upgrade to Pro in order to control the audio application (so now I've invested $100). Here, my troubles started. So, traditiuonally I've saved my slideshows to an external hard drive using iDVD (I have nearly 100, so keeping on my laptop is unrealistic) and burned a copy to a DVD to later enjoy on my TV or laptop. So, the Boinx website said I needed Toast to do this, so I spent another $20 to purchase it, but could not successfully burn a DVD. Researching further, it said to use TITANIUM Toast, so I invested another $70, but still it won't burn a DVD. So I'm out $200 & going back to my old iMovie. Why does it have to be so difficult?

Nice app.

I am generally very happy with this app. I use it to make slideshiows to promote charitable fundraising events and sports events.

I wish there were more pre-made snippits for purchase than are now availalbe. Without a broader set of snippits - presentations begin to have similar looks. Making snippits yourself is more timeconsuming that I will commit.

Overall, the product works quite well and the learning curve is not too too bad. But, some bugs/consistenancies in the user interface can causse a bit of confusion. But, nonetheless, I would recommend the app. I've used it quite a lot and have a good handle on its features and functions.

Think this is Fraud

Nowhere is there in indication that this requires and In-App purchuse. Was hoping it had the same simple feature of the old Presenter app. It does not. Wish there was a way to get my money back for this.

Developer Response ,

I'm sorry to hear that FotoMagico does not meet your expectations. The PhotoPresenter app was a very different application. Unfortunately, we were not able to continue its development.

The in-app purchase is not required. It unlocks some features that only more advanced users really need.

For refunds, please contact the Apple App Store Support.
