Amazing ❤️

Absolutely love it. I’ve been wanting to make a gif for my favorite mobile game, Celtic Heroes, but I couldn’t do that without showing the hotbar, healthbar, and the minimap. So I was specifically looking for an app that had good reviews and I could zoom in with. The other apps I tried/looked at had neither. I thought that this app didn’t have that feature, so I’m SO happy with this app! Now I have some really awesome gifs of my Celtic Hero on her black steed with her white wolf beside her while a dragon glides behind! Plus, I could add a beautiful text with my toon’s name. Love it! ❤️
Only thing I’d suggest is making the trimming more accurate. I’d trim it at first and find it just a little off when I went to crop it. But that’s not too big of a deal.
Wonderful app, love it, download it, have some fun with it! 👍

Hello, thank you for your support and awesome review!
We will consider the trimming feature to more accurate later. 😘

I am confusion

I paid for the pro version of this app a while ago and then it fell out of my regular use rotation so it was uninstalled from my phone but the icon remained. When I went to use it again, it was able to be downloaded from the cloud but the app wouldn’t open in my phone, so I came to the App Store to find it and was unable to. Instead there was this app, with the same name and functions and icon. So I downloaded this app and of course there’s almost no functionality with the free version. I went to check out restore purchases to see if my pro version would register and it did not. Now the app is pretty useful, or at least it was at the iteration I’d last used, but I’m very confused about this whole issue. It’s only ~$5 for the upgrade sure, but it’s really the principle of the thing isn’t it? Who wants to shell out any amount of change on something twice? It’s certainly a vexatious idea and even more bitter in the doing. I’d like to know what all these shenanigans mean before deciding where to squander my coin.

Hello, Thank you for purchasing the ImgPlay app. You can restore your previous purchase. We are sorry to your confusion.

We think you are a user of ImgPlay Legacy, so you may not restore it directly on the ImgPlay Free app. ImgPlay has been two apps a long time ago, ImgPlay Free(in-app Pro), ImgPlay Legacy(Pro). Follow this instruction to restore the ImgPlay Legacy app purchase.

How to restore your previous purchase

1. AppStore > Account(right upper icon) > Purchased > Find "ImgPlay Legacy" and download it.

2. Open the ImgPlay Legacy app once. (Don't delete it before next all doing)

3. Download ImgPlay free version. (

4. Open ImgPlay app, go to Pro page, and tap the button "Restore Purchases"

5. Now you can restore ImgPlay Legacy items, "No watermark and Ad, all Filters" and use them. (All-Pro features upgrade should pay additional charge)

We made a system interconnected inside both apps. After you restore it, it could allow deleting the ImgPlay Legacy app. Whenever you change the iPhone device or delete the ImgPlay free app, you can restore ImgPlay Legacy followed upper instructions.

If this information could not help you, please let us know attached your receipt to figure out what is your purchase exactly. We will wait for your email.

Few missing features, Compression seems inefficient

I really like this app overall—it has lots of features and allows conversion from and from numerous formats. The user interface is also really good. Now, I'll list concerns/missing features in order of importance:

1. One additional feature that I would really appreciate is the ability to set the output specs of the GIF during the save process, for example: resolution, frame rate (I realize this can be set globally, but I would very much prefer to be able to manipulate it during the output process), index palette (number of colors, perceptual, adaptive, custom, web, etc—similar to the GIF options in Adob Animate), and dithering (error diffusion, noise, halftone, none—again, similar to Adob Animate).

2. Output GIF compression seems off (possibly due to background choices being made in '1.' above). When comparing the output file size to GIFs generated with other tools, it seems really large on high or medium quality (and there is a huge and noticeable drop-off on low).

3. It would also be nice to be able to adjust things like sharpness/noise, contrast, brightness, saturation/vibrance, shadows/highlights, tint/temp,

4. Frame-by-frame GIF editing, ideally as layers similar to using GIMP.

Thanks again for a great app, and I hope to see continued development.

Hello. Thank you for using the ImgPlay and we appreciate your detailed feedback. Haver you ever tried our updated version(newer than v5.0, currently v5.0.3)? Please check our comment as following:
1. In the updated version, you can change frame rate and index palette. We will consider to add other output spec too in the future.
2. We improved our GIF compression on the updated version. Also, next version, you will be able to save the file in the desired size. We will keep improving the compression.
3. In the updated version, you can adjust the effect such as brightness, contrast, saturation, warmth and sharpen!
4. In the updated version, you can delect the frame or reorder the frame. But we do not support the layer feature yet. We will check if we can add this feature in the future.
Thank you so much for your feedback 👍
