Dumb App Developers changing stuff that doesn’t need to be changed
by .. getright on 2019/12/02 06:17
Y’all need to restore the original prequel back i can’t even m add music anymore to my videos, because y’all want us to go to iTunes and buy music.. nobody buys music anymore it’s called using Apple Music so do us all a big favor and return the app back to normal and stop trien to change stuff that doesn’t NEED TO BE CHANGED!!!! Or else NOBODY IS GOING TO GET YOUR APP ANYMORE!!!

I don’t know if it’s just my phone but I simply cannot access the app. When I downloaded it it would let me go through the beginning process but when I wanted to continue the app would crash. I restarted my phone and I deleted the app and reinstalled it and it is still not working. I’ve heard a lot of good things about this app but it is not working for me.

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.
It’s too slow.
by 😐🤘 on 2019/11/28 08:14

MONEY HUNGRY
by jaygatcha on 2019/11/24 07:16
I can’t believe this app would charge $4.99 A WEEK for “prequel gold.” I used to pay $7.99 a month, which was actually pricey but I liked the effects so I kept it. Recently I tried to edit my videos and now I cannot use a lot of the filters that was available to me before unless I pay the extra $4.99 for prequel gold. RIDICULOUS , I’ll see if they change their “membership” package to how it was before. Seems like they’re targeting rich people as their audience 🤷🏻‍♀️

slight problems
by Kyliethepopular on 2019/11/23 14:41
So I love this app and it’s great for editing and its my go-to editing app. But lately it’s been acting weird. First time it stuck on the I guess we can call it the “beginning” part where it says prequel be creative and reveal yourself” then I deleted it then downloaded it back. It worked this time and didn’t stick on that one specific part. It went to where it says “ Welcome to Prequel! The most outstanding effects!” And it stuck on that! If you could get back to me VERY SOON so I can know what is going on.

So I don’t know if it’s my phone but my phone new and all. But anywho the app won’t open for me. It will just stay on the opening screen and I use prequel for a lot of aesthetics so it doesn’t really help when I can use the app.😕
Filter problem
by ucci_gucci on 2019/11/19 01:20
I really love this app so much! However there seems to be a problem with the filters. I’ve always liked the pink aesthetic or the filters that prequel offers but when my video uploads it, the video appears orange. Why does this happen??

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.

One of my favorite editing apps..but it’s not working
by TheStoryAboutYou on 2019/11/17 17:36
I use prequel to edit a lot of my pictures and it’s amazing! i love using the disco filters but there is one thing. just last night i went into prequel to edit a picture, and for some reason it did not load. it just stayed on a picture of the logo. i tried everything, i went to the app store and opened it, then deleted it and got it again but nothing worked. so then i just gave up and now this morning i’m trying to open prequel and it’s STILL NOT LETTING ME USE THE APP. it’s really annoying me and i really hope it gets fixed soon. because i know it’s not just me because i had a friend who also has prequel and they couldn’t get into the app as well. please fix this!

Wow
by Lia Peach on 2019/11/17 02:15
Dang this is a really cool app, I just started so idk if there’s anything bad about it yet but there’s so many features that it doesn’t matter. The only thing is I wish you could add any music instead from what you bought because I listen most of music from pandora, Spotify, etc so I don’t have many options to choose from from my own album

by Dollbaby blue on 2019/11/14 17:49
I realize I’ve been charged WEEKLY for your app which honestly I like but has worked less than half the time. Very glitchy. Now doesn’t work past opening icon. Please fix. I only realized after you offer different levels of subs and I feel the way you lead people into them is a bit deceiving...and excessive.
Used to be my favorite but...
by lil cuban chica on 2019/11/14 13:35
This app used to be my favorite editing app until it forced me to now have to buy music from iTunes to put on my videos. I literally already pay for this app and Apple Music. There should be no reason why I have to buy select songs just to put snippet in my video.

I’ve tried deleting and then downloading it again and that didn’t work. So then I thought that maybe it was my internet connection or something but even after I fixed that it would still not work.

by clarajsimmz on 2019/11/09 16:13
This app has a lot of great filters and effects but for some reason, every time I go to save a video, it exports with a weird orange filter on it that I never added. It drastically changes the colors of any video I try to edit and makes the app essentially useless to me. I’m not sure why or how this is happening. Please fix this bug soon!
^-^
by starshineelle on 2019/11/09 09:22
i really like this app and i think its amazing but one thing that kind of irritates me is when i save the video it seems like the sound has “moved” a little bit, ive been making edits in one app and after i put the effect the video and the sound were not really matching its like the sound started some seconds earlier (bc of the effect) :( im not sure if this even makes sense but oki doki (out of that the app is literally perfect it would be cool as well if there were kore vhs effects)❤️

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're fine with the free versions
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?!
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’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.
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!!
$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?!
One of my favorite editing apps..but it’s not working
by TheStoryAboutYou on 2019/11/17 17:36
I use prequel to edit a lot of my pictures and it’s amazing! i love using the disco filters but there is one thing. just last night i went into prequel to edit a picture, and for some reason it did not load. it just stayed on a picture of the logo. i tried everything, i went to the app store and opened it, then deleted it and got it again but nothing worked. so then i just gave up and now this morning i’m trying to open prequel and it’s STILL NOT LETTING ME USE THE APP. it’s really annoying me and i really hope it gets fixed soon. because i know it’s not just me because i had a friend who also has prequel and they couldn’t get into the app as well. please fix this!
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're within the app. Also I don't like that I can't mute my phone while I edit a video clip. It pauses the clip and won't play until I turn it back up again.. You start to go crazy and start hating the clip you'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! 👍
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.
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 & 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 worth paying every week
by Photogenickayy on 2019/07/16 07:59
I love what this app has to offer, & 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.
LOVE LOVE LOVE THE FILTERS!!!
by pitayabowl on 2018/08/27 05:37
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!
No watermarks
by crimosaa on 2019/10/03 17:18
Amazing that you guys removed the watermark for free users especially with so many cool effects and useful filters (currently loving the aspen set for making my photos with green trees look way more autumnal). People are clever and always can figure out ways to get around or hide the watermarks without paying (especially with alternative apps out there). Hopefully this will pay off in word of mouth recommendations so this works out for both consumers and developers
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.
Some Bugs...
by Geo.exe on 2019/10/12 16:17
The app is amazing, runs extremely well and make my videos look flawless. But every time a video is done with cropping, and has the filter on it. The audio seems to be off with the video entirely... the audio would play, but the video would be close to 1 sec behind. I would love if the developers would fix this bug, so that I can enjoy this app even more than I already do.
$5 a week
by AmandaValentine978 on 2019/09/15 20:16
As a professional art photographer - I’m always excited to try out new photo apps on my phone. But lately the prices have gotten ridiculous. Adobe’s Creative Suite is cheaper than this - professional editing and creation software - cheaper. You can’t use more than half of the features without subscribing. And $20-25 a month seems pretty wild. From what I found playing around with the app - it’s cute and all but definitely not worth that price. There are better apps out there that offer just one time costs to unlock features. Normally just around $2. I’d would recc’d people stick to those. Most are better anyways.
I love this app but...
by Lilprincepjm on 2019/06/18 00:03
I actually really love this app and it’s great for creating that vintage/retro look on your photos/videos, but it’s just way too expensive in my opinion. Paying $4.99 a week/ $20 a month just for some additional effects/filters and to remove the watermark ?? I would be more willing to pay if it was even just $4.99 a month or paying for the app and then that’s it. Also I believe the price went up because I remember it being $2.99 a week?? Idk, but the least y’all could do is remove the watermark for free because $4.99 a week is pretty ridiculous.
Over Charging
by Azrael.Alexandria on 2019/07/22 09:42
I love this app but I only use two filters. I went from $2.99 a week, which I could barley handle for the two filters but I was sucking it up, then all of a sudden I’m being charged $5.43 a week! For TWO filters. This is crazy. I’ll go back to having you watermark and covering it up with an emoji for FREE. And tell me why I go to change my subscription the $2.99 a week is still there? I’m scared to select it becuase for a couple weeks you were charging me for both subscriptions- what’s the difference? And why was I being charged both? Ugh
I LOVE THIS APP BUT HELP
by emmariajd on 2018/12/15 05:04
Been using and have been paying for a subscription to remove the watermark, and I LOVE IT! The only problem I’ve had is my app stopped saving my videos... it says that it’s exporting but it never saves into my camera roll or even brings up the option to save. Hopefully this bug can be fixed quickly because I hate not being able to edit content!
slight problems
by Kyliethepopular on 2019/11/23 14:41
So I love this app and it’s great for editing and its my go-to editing app. But lately it’s been acting weird. First time it stuck on the I guess we can call it the “beginning” part where it says prequel be creative and reveal yourself” then I deleted it then downloaded it back. It worked this time and didn’t stick on that one specific part. It went to where it says “ Welcome to Prequel! The most outstanding effects!” And it stuck on that! If you could get back to me VERY SOON so I can know what is going on.
Why pay every single week?
by Alexis Cooooperman on 2019/06/20 18:49
I absolutely love this app and the filters on it! The one thing that’s making me stick with 4 stars and not 5 is that you have you pay in order to remove the watermark. I understand if you have to pay in order to have some filters but you have to pay every single week, I think it’d be so much better and successful if we were to pay all in one and not have to every single week
This app is amazing!
by jenny✌🏻✌🏻✌🏻 on 2019/10/13 22:44
I use this all the time. When I first downloaded it I did not like it because it put there name of the app in the video and I did not like that. When you first use the app it tells you to pay for it. You can hit not now or something this that. (It’s on the top left). And all the free options are amazing!! I 10/10 recommend♡
The video length is too short
by trrriniii on 2019/04/04 12:45
I love the app, but the video length is way too short. If you want to make a minute long video for Instagram you have to do so much extra editing because you can only edit 15 seconds at a time. Plus the wait for it to finish takes so long, but editing only 15 seconds at a time makes it take even longer. I would rather just wait the full time the first time.
Annoying but good
by 불꽃 크리스마 민호 on 2019/02/10 21:17
Very nice filters. Takes way too long to crop videos and forced you to have it at a specific time not allowing you to make it longer. Also there’s a glitch where videos will just freeze and it then not start back up. Ugly watermark and overpriced to remove it. Ain’t nobody wanna pay weekly. Would recommend removing the watermark from the app, only charge for the filters you’re currently charging for and make money off putting ads on the app. If these things are fixed this app could easily be a 5 star.
Amazing But Need Communication
by 90sKid4ever on 2019/02/24 01:57
The filters, effects and music options are amazing. Some of the ‘mood’ music clips won’t download no matter where I try WiFi or data, and I have tried to reach out to find out how to fix but haven’t heard back any support. Also I am not the only one who is trying to figure out what music clip is the one used in the ad for the app and have not received any app help feedback on this either.
Cool, BUT...
by Me lalalallal on 2019/10/03 08:32
Has pretty cool filters and effects but the subscription part ehhh. Idk. Also for some reason this app ALWAYS heats up my phone and my friend’s and my sister’s phone. (So it’s not just my actual device) Plus, I recently updated to the iPhone11 Pro and it still heats up my phone. That’s with usage of less that five minutes. What’s up with that? I’ve never had that happen with any other app. I hope there’s some way of resolving this because I paid for a subscription and can’t even use the app without my phone getting really hot 😒
Nice
by ScarVengence on 2019/07/22 18:26
Ever since I was a young boy, I’ve always wanted to play with a camcorder, but I was never allowed to until I was in my teens. However, the new camcorders didn’t look retro enough, so it wasn’t the same! Now that this app is around, I feel whole again! I don’t cry at night anymore, I’m not depressed anymore because of this app! No more waking up in cold sweats screaming “I JUST WANT A RETRO CAMERA!!! OH GOD WHY CAN’T I JUST HAVE A RETRO CAMCORDER!!!” Yeah... so thanks...
Paid Subscription & NOT WORKING!
by Psurtwnvgdty on 2019/03/27 14:26
This app would be absolutely perfect if I could move the editing box to a different part of the clip. It only lets you filter and edit the first few seconds. It allows you to save that section to your phone but when you want to move on to the next part you can not slide the box!!!! It is so frustrating. The first time I used this app for editing a story for Instagram it worked beautifully. Now.... it’s throw you phone across the room frustrating. Please help or fix! I’ve emailed and tried to contact someone with no response. I would LOVE TO LOVE THIS AP AGAIN!
Cool app
by Fr.James on 2019/06/20 02:40
Decent app, I enjoy even the basic edition. However the app will not longer export or save any of the videos I’ve recorded no matter the length which is kind stupid. Why would I pay for the full features when I can’t even export videos on the basic version? As of June 18th -Thank you guys for updating and fixing the Application!!!
Fell off a bit....
by Nineaux on 2019/10/19 11:05
I used to love this app, but the watermark changed to a giant thing in an awkward place on the videos and pictures which is annoying because I’m not about to pay $5 for a subscription to remove it. Now I notice recently that even though you finally just removed the gaudy watermark, the quality of a finished picture or video is VERY poor. The app changes the entire color and clarity of the original upload. So much so that I haven’t even wanted to use the app AT ALL. Please fix that issue because this really was my favorite thing. Now it’s just eh 🥴
Too pricy
by StarsMars242820 on 2019/09/28 13:35
don’t get me wrong, the app is really good... but they are out of their minds for asking for a weekly subscription. instead of making it weekly or yearly, they should allow you to purchase everything at once. this is like the only editing app i know that has ridiculous prices. but I guess a catch to buying all the features on the app would be them making it like $30 or $50... which is still too much. JUST MAKE THE APP $5.99 TO PURCHASE ALL FEATURES👺
I enjoy it but..
by megalineeemooo on 2019/09/05 02:20
I really love this app, it’s so creative with all of the effects and filters and music! And I really liked how there was no watermark but it recently updated and now I have a watermark? And I have to pay just to take it off? And there was no watermark yesterday..I just think it’s unnecessary to have me pay for a watermark that I didn’t have to pay before. But I still enjoy it I just don’t think it’s fair.
It’s ok
by Muehlbowser on 2018/09/13 04:40
The effects are really cool, and I especially like that you can apply them to video. I feel like that’s kinda rare to find in an editing app - especially the variety. However, the overall quality isn’t very good when you go to save it, and quality of anything you post to social media is already going to be diminished. So unless you took your photo/video with something professional, the quality isn’t really there at the end of it all.
$5 to remove a watermark?
by Jay_Weeps on 2019/06/27 21:17
this app was really fun and I thought I had found a permanent editing app until today when I found out they started actually putting the watermark on the post because it wasnt always there before, I just feel like the $5 is a big rip off, I want to continue using the app but if that watermark is gonna stay there and yall think im gonna pay $5 to remove it? yall lost me.
Longer video length
by Alondrachapa47290 on 2019/04/22 18:07
Hello, for the past few months that i’ve been using the app i’ve really been enjoying everything about it except for the fact that we can only edit ten second videos.. i believe that if we are paying such large amounts for premium we should also be given the chance to at least edit 3 or 4 minutes worth. i will change my rating once you improve this. thank you.
omg this is actually amazing
by andrea1110lol on 2019/10/21 01:00
Ok so like i rarely write reviews on apps but I just had to with this one. It’s like actually a general good editing app that offers you so much even if you have the free version, and if you do get the membership, it’s so worth it. It can make all your pics soooo much better with little effort. 10/10, the bomb!! :D
Cool App But Not Worth $2.99 a Week
by Gatsby_00 on 2018/08/26 14:06
It’s a cool app with cool filters for stories and picture but the KILLS YOUR BATTERY. If your phone is on 100% battery life and you’re in the app for more than a couple minutes it’ll drain your battery life to 40%. When you try to combine certain filters with transition the app ALWAYS CRASHES. Tried putting a start effect and ending effect and it just kept crashing. It’s great for a trial run but paying $2.99 A WEEK is not worth it. The developers have a lot glitches to fix before this app is amazing.
Love this app!
by Abanym on 2019/10/26 04:34
I don’t have payment options for their subscription so I haven’t subscribed to them. But this app works really well even in the free version and doesn’t have annoying watermark when I export. The filters are good—exactly the ones I had been looking for. Thank you guys! 💖
Watermark
by Hhshhhd on 2019/08/07 19:55
I’m not paying $5 a week to remove a watermark. The app is cool but just spend money on a one time cost for a video editing software on your computer. To charge $5 a week to remove an obnoxious watermark is just outlandish. The developers really almost had it with this app. Maybe consider idk maybe a 1 time fee to remove the watermark like any other app on the AppStore you pay a one time fee to remove the ads and the extras you purchase are up to you. Big picture: Charge people a 1 time fee of $5 to remove watermark. Charge individually for “filter packages”
Overpriced!!!!
by ala⚡️ on 2019/04/20 05:11
$2.99 weekly is extremely unreasonable compared to other applications. I used to really enjoy this app until I updated and lost the majority of the free options (filters). Can’t even tap on some of the premium options just to see if I would consider using them / paying for the app. Maybe if the price was better like VSCO ($20 for a year) and if I could edit clips longer than 10 seconds, I would consider purchasing. Listen to the countless reviews and lower your prices or at least better your app.
Great app if it would stop crashing
by kffnnd on 2018/11/10 15:52
I love the filters on this app! Even though there is a premium option, the free option still has a lot of variety and stimulating visual affects. However, after using the app for about an hour off and on, it started crashing and I haven’t been able to keep it open to use since. I’m hoping that it will work again soon. If this wasn’t an issue, I’d give it 4.5 for sure.
trouble exporting video
by hammahjamma on 2019/06/06 15:52
when filming on the app and wanting to save it after it doesn’t seem to do so, it always says “exporting” then nothing happens it does not save into my gallery or prequel’s gallery. please fix this problem or if it’s my own then I apologize but the effects on this app is great and it really gives me the vibe I was wanting in my videos but unable to export it saddens me.
I can’t even access the app
by NbaJt on 2019/11/29 19:22
I don’t know if it’s just my phone but I simply cannot access the app. When I downloaded it it would let me go through the beginning process but when I wanted to continue the app would crash. I restarted my phone and I deleted the app and reinstalled it and it is still not working. I’ve heard a lot of good things about this app but it is not working for me.
No watermark please
by Takato11 on 2019/08/12 23:12
This app is so amazing, the presets and filters make for such an aesthetic video (especially for tik tok). I just wish there was no obvious watermark added in the free version. It defeat the whole purpose of making the video. Instead of $5 per week, please allow for like a $3 permanent watermark remover. I just like the simple effects I don’t need all the extra effects. Thank you
Not really all that good
by Gam'in horse on 2019/08/10 04:24
Gave it a test run. First approached with a free trail (can be skipped) I tried to export a video, it took too long to where I was extremely upset and angrily closed the app. How could a export time be so slow? I have a IPhone 8, but being that it is compatible with the latest IPhone, I cannot comprehend why it takes so long. If you are desperate to find a decent filter-based editing app, this might be worthy of your money depending on what you want. The filters are pretty nice.
Ordinary app with high price
by joegu on 2018/12/16 02:36
Not worth it with the asking ridiculous $2.99 a week price. This is not unique or different from any other app out there that cost $1.99 one time payment. This deserves less than what it’s rated as. But nowadays even if the app is mediocre the developer can pay for reviews for rating to go up. Which is why never trust the ratings. Save yourself time and money avoid at all cost. This app is not worth more than Netflix. Another developer trying to get rich by scamming people. I hope you guys go bankrupt. (Middle finger)
Meh
by katc819 on 2019/10/13 09:58
I don’t understand why with the new update you removed filters that were readily available for people paying weekly to use the app. Now to use most of the filters that were available before we have to pay even more? That seems unfair considering users with subscriptions were already paying a high price tag to access everything
