Keeps closing/crashing every time i pick a fliter..
Don’t like it
by bdjdjsksksjsjs on 2020/11/23 04:27
When I opened the app it didn’t have the next button so there was no way to use the app
The new update is bad you can’t even have square videos no more you should back to the other one😣

This is a good app and all you have nice filters and all that but the app has lagged my phone so many time it shut out the app but lag is the only problem I have hopefully it would be better
Good👍

Very laggy
by .rockkkstar on 2020/11/22 21:25
I love the app but its very laggy so i unstalled it and reinstalled it and its still laggy when i try to make a edit for my videos. Do you know how to fix that?

Too many changes
by Renaissance Marie on 2020/11/22 07:10
I love the app but STOP CHANGING IT! Too many updates, wayyyy to many updates. Who ever is telling you these formate changes make the app better is lying to you. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it homies. It’s a filter app, let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
w o w!!

Glitching
by Jskshusbssus on 2020/11/21 17:34
When I’m trying to pick a picture to edit it always glitches back to the top
bad update!!!!
by jinglebellrockkkkk on 2020/11/21 16:22
Hi, I’ve never written a review until now. I used to use this app to make funny music vids with the few second preview of the songs. I loved how i could choose whatever song I wanted and didn’t have to pay for it on iTunes. Now since there’s a new update you have to get the whole song on iTunes for it to work. The filters are great but I would love it if it still had the free few second previews!!!!!!!! PLEASE FIX thank you
Nice filter but laggy
by lifescupof_suga on 2020/11/21 03:47
Nice filters and effects but it lags so much it glitches from the app back to Home Screen and even if it works, it drains my battery by 30% if I use the app for more than 10 minutes.
Wow
by OceanSkyHouse on 2020/11/21 00:35
Incredible vibes
the new update
by bozozozozoz on 2020/11/20 22:30
ive noticed that the update doesn’t let me edit the videos while it’s horizontal anymore which is really disappointing. it only lets me edit videos vertically now and crops out my video pls help :(
Game changing!
by 🤩🍩😛🤓 on 2020/11/20 22:20
This app is great! I have taken so many photos and edited them with prequel. Even without paying the subscription you get so many options for editing. Whether it’s filters of effects there are so many options that are really great. 5 stars!
Very cool app
by hewo UwUz3 on 2020/11/20 20:10
This app is super helpful I love how there’s no watermark and I always use it for my edits but the only problem is that it’s very very laggy so if u guys can fix that would be great
Trim
by tiktok od me on 2020/11/20 19:58
I had a 1:1 video and I used the app all the time yet when I tried to edit the video i wanted it turned into a full screen video and no way to change it or see the rest of the video on the sides

You can only import one image or video
by 🌸Caro🌸 on 2020/11/19 23:03
I’ve had this app for literally 5 minutes and it’s awful.You can only import one video or photo and nothing else.It would be SO much better if you could have more than one clip or image in the edit
Needs to be fixed!
by Sporty720 on 2020/11/19 21:37
I had this app for about 4 months I downloaded it and never opened it. I finally decided to use it and I waited for 30 minutes for it to load and it still didn’t load. I then checked my internet connection and it was strong so I was very confused about why the app wasn’t loading. I then powered my phone off for about 5 minutes and I proceeded to try to open the app. It still wasn’t working so I deleted the app and downloaded it back and it’s still not working.My internet connection is very strong and secured so I have absolutely no idea why the app isn’t working, I have now deleted the app again. Please help!!!
Horrible company
by Liimegreeen on 2020/11/19 20:43
The Prequel team tried to hire me to do contract work (videography) for them but were insisting on paying significantly below minimum wage. They told me my work was not worth more than that.

by sofia c <3 on 2020/11/19 04:49
I downloaded this app around a year ago and the quality for everything is absolutely amazing, even for the free version. But after around 7 months the app crashed and I was never able to open it again. I’ve uninstalled the app and installed it, restarted my phone, and it’s still not opening. It might be because of ios 14 but i’m not sure. Hopefully you can fix this problem!
I like this app but..
by lynleylovesanimee on 2020/11/18 21:37
So when I downloaded this app on my iPad, worked PERFECTLY fine. But when I downloaded this app on my phone, the video that said welcome to prequel and all those videos of the filter examples kept showing up and it would never go to the editing page!!!! I really want to know what’s going on. PREQUEL THIS ISNT YOU! please help!
Nice

I really like the app. But I don’t know if it’s my phone because for a while I can’t use it open the app but It just shows me the logo and a black screen although a lot of people might tell me to just wait a bit..I do but it just won’t work.. if anybody can tell me what to do that will be very much appreciated💕 But don’t get me wrong before this happens I loved the app and still do keep doing your thing ☺️☺️
love it!
by B24553 on 2020/11/16 01:50
i love this app so much, i think you should add some instagram filters maybe and some snapchat...i’m not allowed to have them so i think that would be really cool :)

by kill6as on 2020/11/15 10:50
i’m only rating it a three because before the update, you were able to change the HUD on a certain effect if you didn’t want the pre-set one. now you can’t do it at all. why is that?
Reason why it's a 5 star review
by Adxre_Ava on 2020/11/15 05:47
I love this app so much because it helps with my edits- Especially because i don&#39;t have tik tok with all those cool edits so i would really recommend downloading this app!
Need’s work.
by potatos fart on 2020/11/15 00:16
I just got this app and it is so laggy, I tried so much time’s to save a video I edited and worked on for an hour just for it to not let me save it and it deleted by itself. Everything is so confusing there is a whew bugs and it needs a bit of changes. For example it is so laggy, I think it needs a little bit of more work to do. I was so excited to get this app but I don’t like it.
Awesome
by harirr0 on 2020/11/14 18:37
Omg i was looking for this app😭💓
horrible app
by honeyymilktea on 2020/11/14 17:59
the layout of the app made it so that you buy the trial instead of proceeding to get it for free. also with the paid trial, the app is so slow and i would expect more from something that costed! there&#39;s also no options to put your video on 16 by 9 and it&#39;s pretty stupid that you can only filter videos in square format. i&#39;m not impressed at all and i hate this app.
AMAZING
by YourDadsBae on 2020/11/14 01:54
This app was sooo great!! Everything was so easy to use and understand even if you don’t have experience with tech!! The effects were perfect for tiktok and I loved how it wasn’t like so many editing apps how almost everything there you have to pay for, not the case for this!!! I LOVE IT ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
good before update
by Goldstarrockstar on 2020/11/13 15:50
so i loved prequel as the filters were top notch and so good. the effects were the same. after they updated their app, i cannot use any of the effects. none of them will load. it’s very frustrating, as they have the best video editing effects i have seen. so disappointed with not being able to use the filters. please fix so i can create.
a bit werid
by -gabbyyy- on 2020/11/13 05:23
Ever since the latest update this app has been acting up. Like for example I will be in the middle of editing a video and it will giltch up and exit me out of the app. I am not sure why it has been doing this. It was not like this before. I am still gonna give this app a somewhat good rating because it has helped me alot before the update.
Good app
by jdhdnvsj on 2020/11/13 04:50
This is a very good app to edit videos you can do cool effects like three d effects and much more cool filters and fun things. When I saved my video that edited on prequel and I posted it it got so many likes so prequel is a good app to edit your videos.
My reason behind 3 stars
by Mkween🥰 on 2020/11/12 16:43
To start off I’ve been using this app for months with no problems. But now all the app does is crash whenever I’m using it/adding effects to my videos.

I’ve downloaded this app before and it works really well, but for some reason when I downloaded it, whenever I click on filters or effects, nothing pops up but all the other buttons work. I’ve tried downloading and re-downloading it many times and restarted my phone many times but it’s still not working
I love this app

DONT DOWNLOAD!! (Specially if your here from tiktok)
by alyssa mader on 2020/11/10 04:17
I was on tiktok watching something and i came across a video explainingn how they got there sparkles. I downloaded this app and as soon as I imported a video it was all so glitchy and the effects wouldnt load. If your planning on editing videos dont download this.
Pretty good
by 2004😄 on 2020/11/10 02:00
All that bugs me is that it’s laggy and slow. It sometimes crashes too I usually have to delete the app and reinstall it loosing all of my bookmarked filters too :(
Annoyed
by rating apps tiktokers use on 2020/11/10 01:47
i don’t like this app cause I need it to edit and it won’t let me download it with the type of phone I have.
Wow! No competition.
by relax_maxx on 2020/11/09 19:53
This is absolutely the perfect app for everyone. I&#39;m an enthusiast, near professional photographer and videographer. I have used Adobe Photoshop Express, Snapseed by Google, and others to edit media on my phone without finding one I used routinely. Out of nowhere I stumble across this app, and within 10 minutes of using it, I pay the $34.99 annual subscription for the full feature set and more. I did opt in for the 3 free trial days I am currently using, but I will certainly be keeping the subscription after. I would recommend this app for it&#39;s incredibly simple and responsive User Interface. Beyond design, it offers nearly infinite styles and filters for your photos. Get this app to transform your photos into living, breathing moments with many possibilities.
Excelente

Kicking me out
by BreezyBaby08 on 2020/11/08 21:07
Prequel is a really good editing app and I’ve been using it for a while but for some reason it’s been kicking me out and I’m very confused because I did nothing wrong and it also says it doesn’t require an update
i loveeeeee
by its okay, i guess...... on 2020/11/08 20:54
its amazing i love everything about it. I also love that they dont put watermarks on the pictures
DONT GET THIS APP
by EH- bye... on 2020/11/08 20:39
Guys, I decided to get this app because It seemed cool, yk? So I got it, I skipped through the beginning pictures when you first get an app (sometimes) so yeah. Then, It made me double tap the side of my phone (like the power button) and downloaded the subscription for $35 a year!! Now i’m in trouble, thanks to this stupid app who’s making people buy the subscription. Mind you, It literally said that right in the beginning. I thought it was some type of thing to unlock for the app, or like to login to this with an account or something. I sent a request to apple to get my moms money back. Don’t get this stupid frickin app, I don’t recommend it. Also, pay attention to the apps you get beforehand cause they’ll trick you and make you pay lots of frickin money which you didn’t purposely mean to. H
A few problems
by i was tye imposter on 2020/11/08 13:59
Well first thing it’s very glitchy and I can’t really see what am doing it’s freezes and then works again I have a iPhone btw-no hate to androids it’s not cool that sometimes the app doesn’t show the filter your using sometimes-
Prequel
by babypluto999 on 2020/11/08 09:16
What this app lacks in freedom as opposed to others like PicsArt ( from what I can gather in the first 20 minutes) it makes up for with its large variety of filters. And I haven’t even explored it all yet so I can say it deserves no less than 4 stars for sure.
I recommend this for editing!I love the sparkle effect!

Sketchy and Concerning...
by _TheSeason_ on 2020/11/08 00:52
When i open the app, i’m told to accept both of the terms in order to use the app. One of the terms is to have my data shared with third parties. I don’t WANT my data shared, especially with third parties. Second of all, why do you need access to my camera and microphone? Isn’t access to my photo album enough? You definitely don’t need my microphone for editing photos I already have, so i don’t know why it’s required. It’s sad, really. I like this app but i don’t feel like it’s safe. What’s with all of these stupid requirements? Be careful before downloading this app, people.

They need to fix their bugs. I get a crash like every few clicks. Also the loading time between presets is very slow! Disappointed because the effects are cool but the app is almost impossible to use.

The app keeps lagging and refuses to work. When I export a video, it just shows the loading bar, but doesn’t export the video. I deleted and downloaded it again, but it still keeps lagging so badly. The compatibility is iOS 12 and later, mine is iOS 14 (iPhone 7) so there’s no problem. I don’t understand why does it not work. Please fix the problem. Although I love this app so much. It’s the best one out there, and the filters are just too amazing.
Keeps Crashing
by ValeriaThePotato on 2020/11/06 16:39
Everytime i try to add a filter to a video or save it onto my phone it crashes. it wasn’t like this before??
Idk what’s wrong
by omg i finna get mad on 2020/11/06 16:19
At first it was working fine but now it’s not even going into the app smh🤦🏽‍♀️
lagging
by hailee🤡 on 2020/11/06 15:34
it’s lagging a lot and i’ve tried closing the app and deleting it and turning my phone off but it’s still lags a lot :/
I want my money back
by sincitywasntmadeforu on 2020/11/06 14:47
when I subscribed to the yearly subscription, it said that it would give me 3 days until it took the money off my card, but it took it immediately
Insane Price Point
by Awesome app 554472 on 2020/04/22 18:01
I installed and deleted it immediately... I’ve paid for my favourite mobile editing app (MuseCam) in the past, and enjoy the purchase. I also have paid $40-50 on the Mac App Store for Affinity Photo, my full featured editing suite. For $5/WEEK you can edit with their presets, or for their self claimed 85% discounted yearly subscription of $35/Year, you can have the presets under that price format. Something’s gotta change here Edit: I knew something had to be wrong with my initial notion. I reinstalled the app, and sure enough, I missed a sneaky little greyed out ‘X’ in the top left corner. After clicking it, you can proceed to the free version of the app, which I have to say is quite nice. You seem to get two presets from each of the collections they give you, and I am impressed with their image processing algorithms, they are nice. I still don’t take back my words about the insanely high subscription model price point, but I’ll leave 5 stars for the actual app. It clearly has been well thought out.
No exaggeration, the greatest app I’ve ever used
by Brett Grace on 2020/10/30 12:06
I almost don’t even wanna tell my friends about this app because I’ve been able to impress them so much by using it! The ease, detail, endless possibilities. It’s actually mind-blowing. There are a handful of aesthetic apps to give VHS effect or Super 8 or something like that, but Prequel is in a league of it’s own. If you have a brand or are a content creator, this is the secret to doing sleek, professional, high quality work. I would like to pay a bigger fee once instead of annually but they make it so worthwhile by constantly adding updates like they just did several for Halloween and I’d assume they’ll do similar for Christmas. The textures they use make fonts look like real lacquer pins or fabric patches. These guys have it all figured out!! More than a review, I just want to thank the developers — this app has made my year!
Used to be my favorite app then they got greedy EDIT
by Hollythebird on 2019/09/01 04:16
Edit September 1st 2019: the developers responded with a super lame canned response justifying their 8+ subscription options. I cancelled mine last week. Over this app and on to another- note: don’t download this app friends they’re a greedy bunch who just had to mess with something they had that was good. 1 subscription tier was enough but to add more so you have to pay the highest amount to get everything is just downright rude. DEVELOPERS I SUGGEST YOU START GIVING REAL RESPONSES AND ACTUALLY READING REVIEWS INSTEAD OF SOME COPY AND PASTE BS. You lost me as a customer and I’m sure many more. I take my rating down to 1 star. AND DON’T respond with “try our free version etc blah blah” the free version is horrid and you’ve made it that way so people have to pay. Disappointed in your company. Don’t fix what’s broke, but you just had to have more $$$. They used to have a FEW subscription options for premium. Now they have a TON so that you have to pay even MORE than you were for even more filters. Won’t be paying anymore. So sad because this used to be my go-to app. But they decided to get greedy because premium payment wasn’t enough already. If I pay $5 a week I shouldn’t have to pay more for more filters. $20/ month?!
The app is laggy...
by SFelony on 2020/07/02 18:35
I have been using Prequel for some time now because I love the effects it provides. I always use Prequel to make aesthetic edits of myself, my friends and just aesthetically pleasing things in general. But I’ve noticed that over time, Prequel has been slowing down and crashing pretty badly for me. I don’t know if its the same for other people but what happens is that I will import the video, crop it, and attempt to put an effect and boom. There it is. It is slow and ruins the vibe of the video. I just don’t know what’s wrong with the app. I don’t know if the app needs a new update or if I’m doing something wrong. Please fix this! I hope you take my complaint in consideration. (Edited) First of all, thank you for replying back. Second of all, the overall issue is the filter. Once I click on a filter like for example, disco, VHS, just any filter in particular, it will immediately slow down. The filters just sort of crash...but I hope you guys cab fix this soon. That way I can keep using the best editing app for aesthetic edits.😊
App refusing to work
by Lukehemmings.girl_56 on 2020/03/19 21:29
Just recently, maybe a month or two ago, I started noticing that the app wasn’t working. First, it was whenever I wanted to export my video. Once I had finished finding a filter or an effect, it would load as if it’s getting ready to export and then it doesn&#39;t export at all. And no matter how many times I would try to export it, or go back into the app, or shut my phone off, it just would take days to export. And now, as I’m trying to use the app, I can’t even get passed from cropping the video. It’s doing the same thing, after I’ve picked a video I want to edit, and cropped it to the size I want, it loads like it’s going to let me continue, and then it doesn’t. And I’ve exited out of the app and tried again, and I’ve shut down my phone multiple times thinking it needs a refresh, but I can’t get passed from cropping the video. I’m not sure why it’s doing that and it’s getting really annoying. The app is really cool and I really enjoy it since I’m a video editor, but I’m thinking about just deleting it and finding a different app because I don’t want to keep wasting my time on a incorporative app. Please fix this issue!
i wish you would get rid of this
by pristidle on 2019/07/13 20:19
everything about this app is AMAZING and i’m so happy that you offer users who want to use the limited version so many filters and effects for free, but the only thing that ruins it is the fact that you have to deal with a big watermark on your photo/video when you want to share it. the only way that i can get rid of the watermark is if i pay $5/WEEK and that’s to use everything in the app, there’s no option to just get rid of the watermark. i really wish that for the free version that you could get rid of the watermark because users are so excited once they’re done editing their photo/video and then a big watermark appears that you can’t get rid of. i’m completely fine with the fact that you don’t have access to all do the effects and filters unless you pay, but for me the watermark in the limited version makes this app so useless and not fun to use. i don’t have to money to be spending $5/week on an app i won’t use every single day. please understand and take the forced watermark away..
I REALLY LOVE THIS APP,BUT...
by alanaroyale_ on 2020/05/08 03:43
I really loved a lot of the free filters &amp; effects &amp; how you can customize each filter! I love everything about this app, however, I think that paying $5/week to unlock all the other filters &amp; editing features are a bit too pricey, especially if you’re paying WEEKLY! Even though I really do like this app &amp; I know that I will be using this app a lot, I don’t think it’s necessary to pay a weekly subscription for that kind of price for all those filters. Also, for some strange reason, everytime I go onto the app, after each minute my screen dims &amp; gets darker &amp; darker &amp; it’s very hard to see how I’m editing my photos &amp; videos! My brightness is turned up all the way &amp; the app still causes my screen to dim &amp; I have get out of the app &amp; wait for the brightness to turn up again. Please add a monthly subscription for those who want use all of the features but don’t want to pay high price for them &amp; please fix this bug!
Great Application, Worst subscription system
by adamgntr on 2019/10/03 17:24
UPDATE: The watermark has been removed for free users!!!!!! Amazinnnng!!! Thank you Developers. I don’t write that many reviews and much less bad reviews, although this app has some amazing and unique effects you may not find anywhere else, i have to point out to a really turn down fact which is your subscription system, paying weekly with as high price point is probably the worst I’ve came across yet, even if it’s something still affordable but it is absurd to pay such amount weekly for an app that you use once a week. We want to have the feeling of paying for something and not thinking about it much like one time purchases or at least make it monthly and reduce the price point. Anyway if you don’t mind the big water mark than you&#39;re fine with the free versions
Pretty Good! Except...
by CatherineTulip on 2020/08/27 02:05
Overall, this is an AMAZING app for small videos that just need something extra to make them pop with many vibrant filters and very bling-ey effects! (I know bling-ey isn’t a word) My only problem with it is that you can only make videos up to 1:00 long! only one minute! I enjoy using this for mainly short tiktok edits but I thought I’d try YT! I filmed and eventually got to the part where I’d use PREQUEL to add something extra! (I use Miami to 80% And stardust to 20%) then realizing I can only edit one minute of it. So i gave up on that. That was a little annoying considering those effects would kind of carry the whole video then finding out I can’t use them. I know this app is mainly for shorter videos but I really feel that if they added the ability to edit a longer video, it’d be way more of a powerful and useful app! Please lmk if there are any updates though I’ve kept it installed! Thank you,
My favorite app of all time?
by MsliceIsNice on 2019/06/29 22:30
I’ve been using this app and loving every minute of it. So much capability. User friendly. Spectacular outcomes. Super fun to use. Even the free version gives you a lot of innovative and fresh filters, music and so much more for video and stills. I love the simplicity and elegance. With the integration of music too! My own library and the app has a library too. You have the option of dragging to select the few seconds of music of your choice. I don’t have any music capability on IG but...now I do. The power to produce content like PREQUEL affords is priceless in this “look at me” marketplace. If you’re an original content creator and/or you’re curating, repurposing, re-anything? Your now have an addictively classy tool to monetize you. Or make impressive memories for your clients, friends and family. It’s my favorite app. Ever.
My experience
by Card games are awesome on 2020/06/03 16:51
I downloaded the Prequel app because several of my friends were super satisfied and recommended. I was a little skeptical of the app at first because it was free and it produced creative quality products. I didn’t know much about editing videos and photos until I got the app. It was literally the easiest editing app to use period! It took me like 25 minutes to get the hang of it. The best part was there no annoying ads after finalizing a video or photo like other editing apps. Overall my experience with this app was awesome and fun and would recommend to family and friends. The free 3 day trial was the best 3 days of my life!
$5 a week to get rid of watermark
by Jess8Hess on 2019/06/26 17:42
Ok, I’ve paid for editing apps before, and I would probably have paid a couple of dollars to get the whole package from this app. But $5/week is just ridiculous. The free version looked pretty cool, until I saved the photo I had edited and they placed a big, ugly logo on the front and told me I couldn’t get rid of it without paying for the full app. For $5/week. That’s just lunacy. This isn’t worth it. There are lots of fun editing apps out there, don’t waste your time with this one. This one will run you $20/month, ~$240/year, that’s honestly ridiculous for an app. Maybe if this was actually a full version of photoshop. But photoshop has an app that’s better than this one, and it doesn’t charge you $5/week. The video effects are cool, but nothing is worth anything with the big ugly watermark on every pic or vid you save. If they got rid of that, I would use the free version, but there’s very little that could persuade me to spend $5/week on an editing app. What are the developers thinking?!
Please fix how often the app crashes.
by Captain Odd on 2020/02/22 10:07
It has super cute filters and effects and everything but I find myself using it less and less because it usually crashes like 11 times before it actually wants to work. Doesn’t even make it past the start-up/loading screen because it doesn’t want to start loading; there’d be a frozen grey screen with the app logo for like a minute before it crashes. I would give this more stars for the filters alone but at this point I don’t even think the filters are worth dealing with trying to get the app to work in the first place. I’ve never dealt with an app that crashes more than this one, or even came close lol I really like the filters so I used to stick it out and would try to reopen it every time it crashed until it finally worked but I’m getting sick of it. I kept the app in my phone for almost a year already waiting for an update to fix the crashes (I get my hopes up when I read “minor bug fixes”) but it never came so I think I’m gonna delete the app. Please fix the issue. The app feels like it only works well when it wants to. None of the other apps in my phone crash either so I know my phone is not the problem. So Performance when the app wants to work: 5/5 Performance the rest of the time: 0/5 Would have given a 1/5 but the filters salvaged it a little.
It’s Okay But..
by SushiKat77 on 2020/08/04 07:11
It does not allow you to rotate videos. I shot a horizontal video, so it’s not vertical. I want to rotate it so you can turn your phone and watch it on the whole screen. I was able to do it on another app, and I tried add effects on Prequel. But prequel rotates it back, and does not allow you to rotate videos. I don’t like to zoom in, or have the background filled in. And after exporting it with the background filled in cause zooming in compromises the video—if I try to rotate it on another app back to the way I had it, it has the background Prequel filled in and doesn’t rotate right, if that makes sense, and so I can’t use this app. The effect is not as important as having the right orientation on a video. I just want to to rotate the darn video. Such a basic feature, you ought to give more control of that. Otherwise it’s a nice app.
Doesn’t open anymore?
by JayDevs on 2020/03/24 17:39
I remember when this app used to have 5+ subscriptions in order to have a quality app experience but this was essentially based off trial and error due to the company wanting to learn what users enjoy. So with that being said I’m not gonna sit here and complain about it being pay to play cause it’s still in development last I saw. However I have other worries about this app and it’s growth. Now I have iOS device. It’s the iPhone 6s and I’ve been editing for a while now wether it be transitions, effects, or even motion tracking. So off the top of my head I figured this app would work pretty good it’s only been a year since I last tried it and my phone is perfectly fine as far as running apps etc. I downloaded it this morning to give it another go and was greeted by a logo that doesn’t go away. The app opens perfectly fine but once the logo appears, that’s it. Tried restarting the app, nothing. Tried restarting my phone, nothing. Tried using a different device, nothing. So essentially the app is looking at the company’s logo now. I don’t see this being fixed anytime soon either due to developers only responding to suggestive ideas so with that being said I encourage you to not download this until it’s next update. Currently this app is broken.
Depends on what you use it for
by king_dollophead on 2020/07/14 23:20
I used to use this app to put filters on video edits I made since the filters are pretty nice. However as I kept using the app I noticed it made the timing of the clips in my videos COMPLETELY out of sync with the music. This is a frustrating issue i sort of fixed by exporting to another app, but it seems Prequel messed the timing up by removing frames which makes the video look more choppy when fixing the timing, and it ultimately lowers the quality since I had to export and save so many times. In the end, using this app isn’t worth it for me, but I will happily go back to using it if this issue is fixed. If you don’t care about audio syncing up with the video or your video has no audio then this is a great app to use.
Wow is this app stunning
by sydney20008 on 2020/04/14 01:26
I’ve been seeing TikTok videos with beautiful filters and sparkles all around. I couldn’t find those apps, I found something BETTER. This app has stunning filters and bling effects for 100% free no catch. You can get an extension if you would like to, I think you would be getting your moneys worth. I love this apps moving photo effect as well. The trendy Instagram photos were blown away when people started using this app to show off their best features. I trust and love the app and I would definitely recommend getting it!! 😌😊
Unable to restore purchase
by dicklover4400400 on 2020/07/13 22:57
I learned about the app from TikTok and was immediately intrigued by it since I love to edit videos. I wound up getting the yearly pass on my iPhone (mostly because I didn’t notice the free version being available at first lol) but I did enjoy having the ability to use all of features the app had to offer. My problem occurred when I got a new phone. I downloaded prequel using the same Apple ID I used to purchase it originally on my new phone but it wouldn’t restore my yearly pass which means I would have to pay $34 AGAIN. I’ve only had prequel for two months or so, so obviously that isn’t letting me make the most of my money. I’m super disappointed and unless I can figure out how to restore my purchase, I’m cancelling my subscription and have no plans on renewing it.
Dope app, ridiculous price point
by ….Leah on 2020/05/25 04:32
After being forced to sign up for a trial, with the full intent of canceling it after checking out the contents, I must say the filters are pretty dope. Very unique filters and effects that would definitely make your photos way more interesting. However, take off a star because of their pricing. There is no way on earth I’m spending 20 dollars a MONTH on this app. The developers should try their hand at comedy because they’re funny af for that absurd price. As much as I’d love to add a Polaroid frame with some text or a mirror effect to my pic, I’ll stick with the plethora of apps that are either free or a small fraction of the price than what these developers are asking for Prequel. Next!
This is pretty dope ngl
by delanie.middlenamething on 2020/04/01 05:38
So far my usage of the app has been going pretty well! For the free version, it actually gives quite of bit of nice features therefore you don’t absolutely have to pay for the subscription. At times however it won’t load which quite honestly could just be my WiFi or just my phone being weird but it’s been happening quite a bit, other than that good app and pretty cOol! However I’m having a bit of difficulty in terms of editing photos that have already been taken, it won’t load and just closes out of the loading process after cropping the photo and doesn’t allow me to further it to the actual editing.
They don't let you listen to music while you edit photos 😶
by loveyourself92 on 2019/03/07 15:46
I love the app but the fact I have to sit in silence while I edit photos on it is really making it less fun 😶,, please patch it so in the settings or something we can allow our own music to play while we&#39;re within the app. Also I don&#39;t like that I can&#39;t mute my phone while I edit a video clip. It pauses the clip and won&#39;t play until I turn it back up again.. You start to go crazy and start hating the clip you&#39;re editing when you have to listen to the same loop over and over a million times 💀 Please let me listen to my own music while within the app and let me mute my phone while I edit a video clip! 👍
Amazing!
by Durpy Unicorn on 2020/09/23 19:53
Recently, I have found a great interest in taking good photos! I found it difficult to get very nice ones with the normal iPhone camera, because even if I used portrait mode the photo seemed bland. It just wasn’t working for me. Then I found prequel! I loved taking aesthetic photos, so this app was perfect! And there are lots of features to use, even without buying premium! I love the shimmer filter, the 60’s filter, the stellar filter, the diamond filter, and the grain filter! Those are my favourites! I don’t think this app needs any improvements! Thank you for making the perfect app to fit my needs (it better-said, wants.) This is an amazing app, thank you! Keep up the good work!
This app used to be good.
by KrystleLina on 2020/07/29 15:09
I’ve had this app for a long time. I preferred this app over all apps because the beauty editing tools were so good and so natural. I always hated snapchat filters and competitive apps that claimed to have beauty editing. Prequel made changes, and I have not been able to use the beauty editing filters in a long time. I reached out by email, and got a responses but no actual help. I can see the beauty tools are there, but they don’t work. When I slide the bar in either direction, nothing happens. The skin smoother doesn’t work, the teeth whitener doesn’t work. I literally bought the app just for those couple of features because I don’t like over edited filters.. I’m disappointed in the changes with the app. I’m not sure if anyone else has had this issue or if it’s just happening to me but it really bums me out.
This needs to be removed
by Pritika_the_unicorn on 2019/08/27 21:01
Normally, i would rate an app like this 5 stars, however, i can’t believe the fact that after taking the time to edit my photos and videos, the result is completely ruined with this massive watermark. i understand that the watermark is a form of advertisement to help the app developers persuade more people into buying the weekly subscription, but i hope they know that not a single soul is willing to pay 5 DOLLARS A WEEK for a photo editing app. this is more expensive than my television subscriptions and i use those way more than this app. I’m not asking for the app to be completely free or to not put the watermark, but at least let us choose where to put it and make it smaller.
Unless you want to pay to use , don’t even bother downloading
by paroxysm.cc on 2019/09/20 16:30
In the app, it reads “try prequel gold”, implying that you can buy and use it optionally, which isn’t the case. You can’t get yo try any effects or anything without actually purchasing the gold . Sure it offers a free 3 day trial at first but I just wanted to use the free version, which clearly there isn’t any. If I was more a terrible person , I could try to sue for false info, at the fact that they have the word “try” for the gold, not that you have to pay to use. If there was an option for no starts I would have left none. Don’t waste your time unless you don’t mind paying, but there plenty of other apps out there that are actually free that offer the same effects as this one.
New changes to music
by Mad*Hatter on 2019/11/17 19:40
Let me preface with that I’ve been subscribed and paid weekly for this app for over half of a year now, and they really SCREWED their subscribers over by taking away the music. Sure, the music is still there, but now you have to pay EXTRA from the iTunes Store for each song. I’ve been loyal to this app because I loved it and I have referred lots of friends to it... but this new change... I feel like I’ve been slighted BIG time after paying the ridiculous amount that I do every week. Considering cancelling my subscription and deleting because this feels like a scam now. I used it to edit videos and put the songs to it, and now you expect me to pay out the nose for it????? No thank you! Saddening, really... I can’t believe they screwed over their subscribers like this.
DONT GET THIS APP
by EH- bye... on 2020/11/08 20:39
Guys, I decided to get this app because It seemed cool, yk? So I got it, I skipped through the beginning pictures when you first get an app (sometimes) so yeah. Then, It made me double tap the side of my phone (like the power button) and downloaded the subscription for $35 a year!! Now i’m in trouble, thanks to this stupid app who’s making people buy the subscription. Mind you, It literally said that right in the beginning. I thought it was some type of thing to unlock for the app, or like to login to this with an account or something. I sent a request to apple to get my moms money back. Don’t get this stupid frickin app, I don’t recommend it. Also, pay attention to the apps you get beforehand cause they’ll trick you and make you pay lots of frickin money which you didn’t purposely mean to. H
How can I fix this?
by Едена on 2020/04/26 06:35
I wouldn’t say prequel is a bad app, I’ve heard many good things about this app and would love to be able to edit my videos on prequel. I downloaded prequel in January to try it out and when it finished downloading I went onto the app and it only got to the suggestion of prequel Gold and when I clicked the X it wouldn’t close so I refreshed the app and it wouldn’t even open up it showed the little intro thing at the beginning and the completely freezes again! I deleted the app and just downloaded it again and the same thing happened, I’m not sure if it’s because My iPhone isn’t updated or maybe it’s because It’s and iPhone 6 but please help me out I really would like to solve this problem.
ITS AMAZING.
by AestheticHP on 2020/06/26 00:30
I fricken love this app, it’s simple and easy to understand. I love that you can mess with the filter sliders to get just what you want, it’s pretty useful! I make instagram edits and none of my programs have cool filters so I decided to try this out... and wow this app is so GOOD?! It has no watermark which I appreciate so much, and even though there is a subscription to get more filters, I can still make a bomb edit with the free filters. 10/10 Would very recommend, it’s just a life saver, makes my post looks more aesthetically pleasing. I really have no complaints.
I don’t ever write reviews...
by vickross29 on 2019/03/06 03:11
I don’t EVER write reviews but I felt compelled to write this one after using this app. I had been looking for an app that I could make videos with good music with for WEEKS and couldn’t find anything. Then I found this. This app is amazing as far as I’m concerned. It has every song I search for- even the most rare. It has really cool effects and I didn’t buy the extra version just the free one. I’ve only been using this for a couple of days and I’m honestly in love! Good job!! Definitely recommend!!
Love the app but not pleased with a recent update...
by hadleyaninchel on 2020/09/29 00:41
Never in my life have I ever written a review for an app prior to this one. I pay the subscription for premium $4.99 a week because I am SO in love with this app and the features it has. I am big into edits and creative work so I always add music to my photos + clips. Unfortunately now you’ve taken away that privilege for everyone. Now I have to purchase every song through the app store which limits my ability to create variety in my projects. Looks like I will have to find another way to add music and cancel my subscription to this app. I have a feeling other users will be frustrated with this as well - hoping this gets fixed in the future.
Non stop crashing
by dghjcjkjcds on 2020/09/03 02:30
I used this app for the first time a few days ago and it was lovely; so many cool free filters and effects, it was so much easier to use this app than try to figure out how a professional video editing program worked. However, I noticed that this app has updated within the past few hours and now the app won’t stay open for more than a few seconds when trying to edit a photo from my gallery. I’ve reinstalled the app, restarted my phone, reshot and re-recorded my videos to edit, and yet the app still crashes. I would appreciate some help from the developer w this issue because I love this app.
Newest update makes it harder to edit
by emamamamamamamama on 2020/09/07 11:41
After a while of trying it out, the new update just isn’t for me. The aesthetic change is fine, I can see what they were going for, but it takes so much longer, and the setup is so much less intuitive. It makes popping in to check what a photo would look like with a certain filter a much longer process. I find myself not wanting to use the app, which makes me sad because it used to be my favorite editor. It wasn’t broke before, not sure why they tried to fix it. If there’s a way to revert to the past layout added in a future update I’d definitely come back. I feel sorry for the people who pay $7 a week.
makes my edits off beat
by cello jackson on 2020/05/29 22:41
overall, prequel is a really good app for filters. You can use most of the effects for free, which I really like. I also really like the fact that it doesn’t have a watermark. But the one thing I don’t like about prequel is that it makes my edits off beat. I make edits for my edit account on instagram and prequel is always my go to when I want a vhs filter, bling, or just to add an aesthetic to the edit, but when I put my edit into prequel, it makes it super off beat making me have to redo the edit and spend a lot more time than necessary on one post.
Great App

I read some other reviews before downloading, mostly negative. I disagree with them. What a fantastic selection of filters and effects that i haven&#39;t found anywhere else for free. Honestly blown away by the quality of the content available. Its clear that time and effort has been put into development and interface, so I understand some features being locked behind a paywall. Looking forward to many posts and projects using this app, would recommend.
This app is a SCAM!!!
by AmandaRobbins9 on 2019/09/17 16:05
I signed up for the trial period to try it out. I did enjoy the features the first few days I tried it but they are NOT worth paying $5 a week!!! Not by a long shot. And when you sign up, they do not tell you they have many other options besides the weekly subscription which ends up adding up to $20 a month! That’s insane! Anyways, once the trial period was over, I could no longer use any of the premium features. So I assumed the subscription cancelled automatically. Then I get a receipt from Apple showing they charged me for TWO WEEKS, and even still the premium features are not available to me. I requested a refund thru Apple &amp; they said I do not qualify for a refund. So basically they took $10 from me for absolutely nothing. And I don’t make enough money to be spending like that because I am disabled! Scam scam scam!!! Update in response to developers response: I don’t need info to cancel the subscription, I’ve already done it now. What I want is my $10 back for two weeks I didn’t want, NOR were the premium features available!!!! Anything less than my money back is insufficient!!
Not gonna pay subscriptions!!!
by Alpa_SheeN0 on 2020/10/28 08:45
This app has also updated their terms and condition on sharing your personal information to 3rd party companies. As if it wasn&#39;t enough you also now have to pay an aggressive subscription for an app that I will probably use 3 or 4 times a month, not worth the insane subscription options. Although when I used the app before it was good it had cool filters and it was very promising. But all that goodness went out the window when they updated their terms and added very aggressive subscription options for casual users. I gave a 2 star rating because I used to like their content but beyond that its a fail on the rest.
LOVE LOVE LOVE THE FILTERS!!!

I love this app. I saw it as in ad on Instagram and IMMEDIATELY decided to download it, however I don’t like the idea of paying $2.99 a week just to get rid of a watermark and to get some special features. An app called InShot gives you the option to pay $2.99 a month or more to become a monthly subscriber or you can buy filters. I have plenty of apps that give the options of having the VHS effect but they won’t let you stack them up like Prequel does, I constantly have to go into different apps (max is 2) to create the effects that I want. I’d love to see a change in the $2.99 a week....other than that I love this app!
Amazing but Major Flaws
by Cee Cee🦋 on 2020/08/24 13:53
Of course this app is amazing. You get sooooo many amazing effects and filter for free so im never gonna uninstall but my only thing is, I think you guys should add more ratios. I wanted one of my 16:9 videos to have a certain filter and usually what I would do is put canvas in 1:1 and zoom the video or picture out and proceeded on but now when I want to do the same thing it freezes and takes me to the home screen which is really a bummer. Other then that this is THE BEST app for free filters and effects. Like i said , never uninstalling &lt;3
Highly recommend

I used to never edit my photos, mainly because I could never find any ‘aesthetically pleasing’ filters. Instagram filters are awful and most apps make you pay for the really good ones. Prequel has great filters and affects in different variants so you can still have the cool ones without paying. The also removed the watermark for non paying users which is absolutely amazing. I honestly would pay for the ‘gold’ to see and use all the other filters.
the apps has some bugs but it seems really good
by ava crowley on 2020/05/28 15:54
As I have seen, the app looks really cool to use and a bunch of new affects and there is no more watermark. The one thing that doesn’t work out with me was when it says to go on to settings and enable camera and microphone, nothing showed up. When it is possible to do so, can you please put the pop up saying, “Allow PREQUEL to access camera and microphone.” Besides that one point, the app seems great for editing. Please try to fix that...
Not worth paying every week
by Photogenickayy on 2019/07/16 07:59
I love what this app has to offer, &amp; I understand you given us a free version with the watermark on the video/picture and limited filters but paying $5/week for the full version!? That’s highly unreasonable. I really believe if your going to charge individuals to get the full version of the app, you should have it to where we pay once and won’t have to pay again. Versus paying $5 a week for something that we won’t use everyday.
Good but something isn’t working!
by Aubz M on 2020/04/09 19:04
I had this for maybe 2 weeks and it was working fine everything was great until I tried using it again after a few uses. When I click on the app, it’s logo/icon just stays, it doesn’t load in. It is really hard to explain but I went to the App Store to see if it needs updated and it doesn’t. I’m really confused I deleted it and re-downloaded it tons of times and still won’t work! I’m really sad because this was my favorite app and has everything I liked. :( PLEASE RESPOND BACK!
laggy / crashing
by Mya Capa on 2020/07/31 14:31
overall this app is amazing! there have been no problems since i downloaded the app a few months ago, but staring today july 31, 2020 everytime i try to import my own video from my camera roll and try to add an effect, such as VHS, the video gets choppy and it slows down and the app ends up crashing on me and automatically puts me back to my home screen. this is one of my favorite apps and i would love if you could fix the problem so i can enjoy making my edits without any worries of crashing !
I am really disappointed. I was really looking forward to this app.
by Ella😗✌️ on 2020/08/26 11:22
When I downloaded the app I was hoping it would work after seeing some reviews. It doesn’t! When I open the app I looked at the filters and they hadn’t finished loading. I waited a few more minutes and they still hadn’t loaded. So I clicked on a filter and waited thinking that would work. I still would not work. I am really disappointed and wanted to use the app. I went online and tried to see if anyone else had this problem. I didn’t find anything, so then I looked at the reviews and found that other people had problems as well just different ones. I hope that in the future you will fix this mistake.
i like this app,😭
by lol.-.-.-. on 2020/04/30 08:42
personally it only works for pictures because when i try to take a video on it, it says recording error and at first it was my storage but i deleted almost everything and i have most of my storage and i tried deleting it about 4 times and i still get the same thing. it’s good for pictures tho, i have no complaints other then that i can’t take videos but i love how the pictures come out on this app. i would recommend to anyone that wants a picture to look of a higher quality then it actually is. i’m using the free version to see if i like it and if i keep enjoying it then i will get the subscription. the quality of each picture is so great. i didn’t think i’d like it at first but i actually do and some of my friends can take videos on there phone and they turn out great as well. therefore i 100% recommend and it’s a great app.
App is great BUT
by @riggztwonice on 2019/11/28 14:40
Hey Y’all, the app is great! But unfortunately, there is a little lag that occurs when exporting high quality videos from the app to the camera roll, or any socia media app. This is a huge concern considering a lot of people are using this app as a final stop. So if the audio has fallen behind the video due to the app’s lag time, it throws all the editing off. This is torture for musicians, adventure bloggers, athletic highlights, and more. If you could include a way to adjust the audio to make up for the lag time, this is easily the best video effect app on the App Store.
few bugs but great app
by Josephine Z on 2020/09/24 21:59
I have been using Prequel to edit a lot of my videos for a while and it is a great app, I always seem to find what i’m looking for and they have a great and extensive collection. Unlike other editing apps almost everything you would need is free and easily accessible. My only issue with the app is how overheated my phone gets whenever I use it. It makes the process 10x longer and there is no option to pause a video while editing or make the video smaller on the screen. Overall I really like the app, it just needs a few fixes.
3/5
by Deeelyhnnn on 2020/09/29 14:48
I think it’s an amazing app love filters and effects some issues with videos or it closes sometimes but only main thing i noticed frok everyone and for myself is.... i wish it was a one time purchase i seen many other app and they are great with their one time purchase but sadly this app only about monthly or yearly subscription no one time full purchase and that’s it. i do wish it was one time purchase bc i would def show all my friends and photography friends this and they would buy it in a heart beat but the subscription makes it a big downfall
