So much fun!

I love this app, I've been using it non-stop for the past two days on every photo I've ever taken. So, far I haven't encountered any issues.

The one feature I wish they'd add is higher resolution at export and no black bars on native resolution photos. The quality is really bad on photos that you take in regular portrait mode, and like I said, it adds black bars on the edges. ⬛️🌌⬛️

I'd also love to see some VHS style effects like tracking and directional static noise added to the roster.

Other than that, this app is great and well worth the price.

Outstanding with some Crashing

To me, Glitch Wizard, is better than any other similar app out there. Though, I'm not even sure if there are any other applications in this brilliant genre that can even compete with the results that Glitch Wizard offers.

I would have given this app a rating a five-stars, but, it has been crashing quite a bit recently. It's happened a few times when I was searching for and importing animated gifs from, Giphy. Yet, I've also had the app crash to my home screen just during normal editing operations as well.

I'm running Glitch Wizard on an iPhone 8 Plus, using iOS 12.3.2, if that helps the developer at all in determining why the crashes are occurring. If you wouldn't mind please looking into this issue and releasing a update that would curtail the crashes on my iPhone, I'd be very grateful to you, thank you.

Still, even with the crashes, I would easily recommend to the fullest extent that others check out Glitch Wizard. It's completely bonkers in my opinion what this app can do to photos and video and I just love the program so much. My sincere thanks and gratitude to the developer for such an amazing application. I fin. it to be one thousand percent worth the asking price too. And, I am excited to see where they take this program next. But, in the mean time I'll be having a glitchy blast with it for sure 🤪.

Fun for fun

Potentially a very powerful app. Looking forward to future updates that allow for larger quality export. Although the web tutorial claims you can undo by dragging out frames, a true undo button would be very helpful. When a single click adds 6+ frames, it is time consuming and tedious to remove the additional frames.
