Should I buy it? Yes!

This app is amazingly awesome! I have made numerous videos with it, and they just keep getting better, thanks to the app. Unlike other apps it gives you multiple FREE effects. It's easy and fun to use. No stress, no long waiting. The video downloads within 10 seconds to your camera roll. No glitches with the app on my phone, and no crashing. You should download the FREE app now! I recommend buying some of the other filters, to really improve your videos. But many great effects are already included for FREE. That's right FREE. Download, and enjoy!

Things to Consider

This app is fun but has it’s limitations. You can only add effects as you shoot. You can’t add effects to pre-existing video. I tried importing the videos I shot with this app into iMovie and found that they aren’t the same size as the landscape videos I shot with my phone. Black bars appear on the sides of the videos shot with this app. I found a way around that but you have to do some work to achieve some semblance of continuity. I have also noticed that the camera has to remain still for the effects to work, otherwise, they become distorted. On the positive side, the app’s staff respond to your emails pretty quickly. Hopefully, they listen to feedback and make their fun app an even better one.

The ONLY reason I gave this app 4 stars is because I had it when I was 5 or 6. Now you have to pay for a lot of things. Like I said it was fun earlier. I remember the first one I made. It was indoors and there was a airplane crash. I had my sister hold my tablet and then i fell when the airplane was supposed to hit me. I fell the opisit direction but if I fell the correct way it would have looked realish. We had a good laugh about it and it brings back good memories. Thank you for those memories FxGuru. I will always treasure them. Thank you for being a good app back than.
