Ratings and Reviews
Love this App, but Needs Small Upgrades
I have used this app quite a bit on photos with cute emotions and candid moments that I turned into videos to share with not only friends and family but with social media marketing for clients and me too! Just small things that cause minor inconveniences like not being able to look for photos by album or favorites, and then not being able to back out of the “editing” screen once a video or gif has been exported. Hopefully these small things will be able to be improved! 🤗
Replaced by google photos
I deeply love this app for its ability to get more moments out of Live Photos. However I can’t stand having to manually scroll through every photo in my camera roll to find one. And the edit menu freezes now, I just checked and I suppose it’s because the App hasn’t been updated in two years.
To get around the freezes: click to share video (it will freeze here). Switch from this app to another app. Switch back. Now you can select what you want from the share menu (freezes again). Switch to another app. Switch back to this app. App will be unfrozen and you can continue.
Anyway I use Google Photos app all the time and noticed that you can now export Live Photos as videos. I guess that’s where this team went. And you can find photos way easier. So check out that App if you like this one.
Watermark setting way too hard to find
I find the results from this app fantastic. Export to gif really is something Apple should support natively.
HOWEVER - Motion Stills defaults to including a tacky watermark in the exported files that is not shown in the preview screen. For the longest time, I was convinced there was no way to turn it off. The only indication that settings existed was in the camera pane - a button I was unable to use because I don’t allow apps camera access. I had incorrectly assumed that these setting would only apply to the camera anyway. WRONG - all the useful settings are in that menu. IT EVEN HAS A CHECKBOX FOR DISABLING THE WATERMARK.
If the watermark were disabled by default, this app would be 5 stars. If the setting menu were on the home screen where it belongs, it would get 4. As it stands, defective UI design and repellant opt-out defacement of exported images really count against it.
