Nice App Easy Has Potential

So this is easy to use but I feel it might need instructions? I purchased this app but for the life of me I cannot trim, rotate, apply filters or anything? I’m assuming when I downloaded it I got the current version but I don’t know as that information is not in the app not that I can find anyway.

Update: I uninstalled then reinstalled it and now it is working as it should, for the most part. Not sure what went with first install?

One of the issues I’ve had is it crashing when I try to create a slideshow with 30 plus images. It’s trying to download from iCloud for a few minutes then it crashes. I haven’t tried adding say 10 images at a time to see if it works but I suppose that might help.

Despite it crashing with many images I was happy to pay for it as you are not limited to “x” number of images.

It’s also very nice you can add music from your library. Wish I had a bit more control over that part.

Overall, I feel it’s worth the price and can’t wait to see what comes with future updates.

Developer Response ,

Hi there,
First, thanks so much for the kind review! If you tap on a clip in your timeline, it’ll give you 3 options: to edit it, mute it, or delete it. If you tap edit, a bunch of different tools will pop up to crop, filter, rotate, etc. (if you already knew that and the issue is that the tools aren’t working, please let me know!

Most def has potential

Most definitely have potential! Working on workflow with my iPad, crashed a couple of times and tried to recover, then the third time it crashed, no more recover, so I lost it all.

I love your idea, just need to have transitions in sound and videos. Nice if this could make music adjustments like fading, music and voice and sound level adjustments, film splitting, and other essential editing tools. I love how you tried to make it simple, but need at least this more.

I would be very supportive of your cause and be willing to even pay a little more as long as these features get added. But please, no subscriptions! I hate this idea and leave as soon as I see subscriptions! Most definitely good luck and will revisit this app again later. Cheers!

Create a video with live photos and control sounds!

Great app, so easy to use, does everything I'd want, while keeping it simple enough where I can create something quickly! The best thing is that I can mute the sound from the photos and add my own music or use theirs. An awesome feature because I find myself saying the dumbest things while taking live photos, or they just have terrible snippets of my laugh... And I like how I can choose any number from each day, and order, and easily trim them individually. The perfect app.
