THIS IS MY FAV APP I USE IT EVERY DAY SO YA OK
Takes up a lot of space 😡

Green Screen

I love the app and everything about it, but the Green Screen should be able to move it around for green screen fix, just a thought.👍
Garbage
by Howard153 on 2020/07/15 23:29
It’s okay for very basic edits, like putting two videos together, but beyond that it is EXTREMELY glitchy and a pain to try to actually edit on. I split video clips to add text at specific times, and IMovie thinks it’s a good idea to duplicate frames randomly when I do this? I’ll be editing the length of a certain AUDIO clip, and then the video length ends up changing for no understandable reason, and frames end up getting repeated in the video split and ruining the video. Why? Who decided that would be a good idea? Stupidest app I have ever used, trying to make a single small adjustment like replacing an audio clip ruins the entire video sync, and you’ll be better off starting from scratch. I’ve put at least 6 hours into trying to edit a basic 10 minute video, and 5 of those hours come from iMovie randomly changing video lengths and adding frames and throwing audio off sync for every tiny change I make. I would give this negative stars if I could. It drives me insane. Long story short, DO NOT use this app, unless you are doing something very very simple. It is not worth the frustration and you would save so much time using literally any other app.

I was working really hard in a montage for fortnite earlier and I went back on if and the montage was gone, I worked really hard on it and it just got deleted so now so have to start over. is there anyway you can get the file back?
⚠️DO NOT GET THIS APP⚠️
by hahshajabab on 2020/07/15 19:22
I used to love iMovie. However, once I started to take editing seriously, the app failed me. I would work long and hard on editing a project and then the app would ERASE all my work. The part where it shows my videos is black. I cannot play the video nor edit it anymore. There was one time when I somehow managed to save the edits I made, but nine out of ten times I’ve lost my work. If I could give it zero stars I would. I’m warning people now, do not get this app. There are many times I have wanted to write a review about this app, and how it takes away all your hard work, but most recently I went on a trip, and took videos there and started to edit them. Just now, today, I was editing it, and the screen went black where it shows my video. I couldn’t save my edits and hard work. And I can’t retake those videos. The only other option was to start all over and take hours and hours to do it. I did not have the time. But today, when I was editing it and the screen went black, I decided to write a review because I was fed up with it taking my hard work. In conclusion, this app is not a good choice if you are really trying to edit well.
AMAZING ✨💕

Great App, but needs an upgrade
by JESSICA HOCKETT on 2020/07/15 15:40
This app is amazing. My kids love to use it, and so do I. With its easy to use controls, and with a simple push of a “ button”, you can create a very convincing trailer or movie. But like others have said, it often times glitches and/or deletes work. Also, the app should have more options to work with. The app recently (as of 7/14/2020) got a music update, which allows you to choose more music. Again, maybe more choices with that too. Keep up the good work guys!
It’s ok
by noname readers on 2020/07/15 15:24
It’s pretty good for editing my YouTube channel!
I love this

Was great but then it took to long to download the videos I used in the movie
Do you not get it
by unicquinn on 2020/07/15 10:41
It’s a really really stressful app because when you’re trying to edit it keeps leading you back to the beginning and it’s really really annoying like really annoying. And then it gets you in a mood just don’t get it it’s really really really not worth it by rolling my eyes
I can’t even get it or play it!
by bearʕ•ᴥ•ʔ on 2020/07/15 10:29
Its a great app but once i tried to make my gacha videos and it would not let me on it. I tried and tried but nothing worked. So whatbdo i use now! But also you nedd to fix the moving screens. I am very angry so
help!!!!
by my edit acc is @intimidatedits on 2020/07/15 06:13
ok so i love this app, i’ve been using it for a long time but almost everytime i try and save the video, it won’t work. it always says “sorry, an error occurred during the export.” and it makes me SO MAD because it happens almost everytime. i’ve been working on this thing for MONTHS. and for everything to be wasted is really sucky. so fix this. please!!!!
I like it

Great movie editor, but I think there could be more...
by DonutDude133 on 2020/07/14 20:29
This is absolutely an amazing video editor! There are so many different editing tools like filters, cropping, volume control, etc. but I think there could be more to this. This is my opinion, but I think that they should add tracking. By this I mean you can take a title or a special effect and place it into your video, then use this tracking tool to make that title or special effect follow something in the video like a lamppost so that as the camera moves, it looks as though that title or special effect was holding still relative to the lamppost. That would be an amazing addition! This doesn’t have to be added, and some people may not want it to be added since iMovie’s simplicity is another factor why it’s such a great video editor. All in all, these are my thoughts.
By far the best on iOS
by Lego guy155 on 2020/07/14 20:11
So I have used many video editing apps and only 2 have come close to this, and the problem is that, cute cut and video toolbox require micro transactions to remove the watermark. Thankfully iMovie is 100% free. And plus I just found out that if you record videos in 60fps like me, you can export it in the same frame rate which I LOVE! All in all extremely good, but please make it so you can move text to wherever you want in the video, and even use text/emojis to cover stuff up manually.
Jacked up all of my audio
by The Awesome Tag on 2020/07/14 20:01
I was making a vid and my audios for the vid got jacked up and placed randomly. FIX THIS NOW! I SPENT OVER 3 hours editing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
AMAZING! But with a few updates it could be perfect!
by #greatest game ever1 on 2020/07/14 19:58
I have had iMovie for quite a while now, and it is my go-to movie making app! It has proven time after time that the app is quite functional! I am not a great edition myself and I love having the basic editing software that can cater to my editing level. iMovie is definitely one of the best editing apps I have ever used. iMovie could be better if the layout was a little more carefully laid out. But overall I would 100% reccomend!
Well
by pen the nice on 2020/07/14 17:39

I can edit my YouTube videos with this and I recommend this app but I have one question when are we gonna be able to move texts I can’t move I can only put them in the center and bottom left corner
long, 4k video... BAD IDEA
by Qkey24 on 2020/07/14 07:50
you can make a lot of your scene of video, then combine up on PC... dificult. but this app are AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
great!!
by hijksjsskks on 2020/07/14 02:36
i love this app, but it would be AMAZING if you could add a blur feature!! other than that, the app is amazing :)
It’s better than the app I used to use edit my videos on YouTube
by rycbrycbrucrtxgedkeddye on 2020/07/13 23:13
A long long time ago I I was using this very very very bad app that didn’t wasn’t really that good editing videos for YouTube until I found an iMovie and now I am so glad and I’ve learned how to make intros and I’ve learned how to do green screen so much fun 👍🏾
iMovie Needs A Fix
by LamoKai11 on 2020/07/13 22:50
I Don’t Know If Anyone Else Has Encountered This But Sometimes If You Add A VoiceOver To Your Movie It Will MOVE The VoiceOver To Another Spot Witch I Don’t Like. One Time, I Was Making A YouTube Video (i make/edit my videos on iMovie) And It Took Longer Than An Hour To Make. Until I Realized, That All Of My Voice Overs Were MOVED. So Guess What? I Had To RESTART My WHOLE VIDEO Editing On ANOTHER Editing App.
Good but terrible
by Kyndal_spen_spen on 2020/07/13 22:45
It’s a good easy app but things need changes first you can change your text color or your font and you can’t move the text were you want it to you can’t reverse you have a little bit of titles but on the Mac version it has a bunch of titles this one of the worst I’ve seen there’s so much you can do on iMovie Mac the iOS no one want to buy a 1000 dollar Mac book just to do editing
Love this app, pretty slow though...
by 💕Holly💕 on 2020/07/13 22:34
So ive had this app on every iphone ive had since i was in 6th grade. This app is super fun and easy to make videos on. Its not too confusing and is also free which is also a plus. The only reason i gave this app 3 stars instead of 4 or 5 is because on every phone ive had with this app, it has always been pretty slow so it cant just be me. I hope this was a helpful enough review of this app
It Refuses To Save My Edits
by Avery._.Treff on 2020/07/13 19:35
So I never leave reviews, but I know that iMovie has potential so I want this to be heard. So my sister and I love filming short videos for fun, but when we made this one, it saved all of our edits. But, when we went to watch it the next morning and to show our friends, everything was ruined! All of my edits were gone and all of the voice over clips we used were in random places. I’ve tried this so many times, and I really hope this can be resolved. I do t know if it is just me, but if you downloaded the app and it works great, than that’s great, but it has never worked properly for me. :(
Needs changes
by Flipmykitty606 on 2020/07/13 19:23
1. iMovie freezes and NEVER lets me delete videos 😤 2. You have to keep videos in camera roll in order to watch your videos, but videos take up sooooo much space 😭 3. Not great songs to choose from and many sound effects I want to use are not on iMovie 4. Anyway, it’s a good app to use, just needs changes...

Can’t make a photo shorter
by Gaming With_Karina on 2020/07/13 14:42
Amazing! But the one thing that makes me use other apps is that, you can’t make a photo smaller. Which kinda bothers me to use another app but other than that I think it’s a pretty good app! I’d recommend it!

I love to edit with it
Top shelf video editor
by skater app is better on 2020/07/13 12:00
I've used imovie for about 4 years now and its been great. From the addition to green/blue screen, to the easy to navigate ui. One feature i personally feel would make this program unrivaled would be the ability to apply the ken burns effect to video clips as well as photos. Although I'm on an iPhone 7 and probably couldn't access such a feature. I still believe it would be great to see implemented
Great but sad
by i cant use anynick on 2020/07/13 06:20
Was mad to find out that I can’t use it anymore because I have a iPod touch and can’t update to what iMovie requires, it really is a great app and highly recommend it...if you can download it. It is very good and easy to learn but can easily be mastered to make Beautiful videos. It really isn’t confusing and really amazing.
Best app ever

Great but it breaks
by PickleMadness on 2020/07/13 03:41
IMovie is a really great app and I’ve been using it for a couple of years for my YouTube videos(@ TheGonzGirlz if you want to see). It does have a few issues, though. It’s constantly crashing, making my project go black and unable to edit. It also freezes, but not to often. One thing I would recommend is using a different app for the text. It looks very generic and it can be very transparent at times. I started using Autodesk sketchbook to download the text to IMovie and it works well. Overallsit’s great and I can edit my videos and upload to YouTube.
Wow
by Gram Fam on 2020/07/13 00:49
That’s amazing uses I movie and yeah... idk Kid magic uses adobe premiere which is not that much better I movie is for pros

So when I first got my iPad I wanted a movie making app. Then I went on the App Store 🏬 and looked for a movie making app. Every movie making app but you had to by it! Then I found iMovie I downloaded it for free. Then I went on the app and had everything thanks 😊 apple 🍎.
complaint
by xxxavier858 on 2020/07/12 21:18
i movie has been acting up i’ve been using it for a very long time and i’ll be eating and it will just go black and i can’t do anything can’t play it or anything
Blur tool request
by SarahAnn1986 on 2020/07/12 19:16
Absolutely love this editor, it’s the only editor I use. My only complaint is I wish there was a blur tool, more effects would be cool but it’s great for a beginner and has the bare minute for options which is great if you’re just learning how to edit. I try to be courteous and not film other people but sometimes it inadvertently happens and I always have to add a picture in picture which distracts from my main objective....basically I really wish there was a blur tool.
This is the worst video editing app I have ever used.
by GHAYZLETT on 2020/07/12 17:58
iMovie can do a lot of things, but when it comes to even the slightest amount of intensity, the entire app shuts down. iMovie randomly deletes my videos, music, etc. and then crashes after I try to put them back. I have had to restart countless project that I have worked hours on just to get half of what I originally wanted. Every time I try to save a video, the video is bad quality, slower, and the background music/audio is off beat. I would absolutely love to see iMovie function properly, but until then, I hate iMovie with a burning desire.
It’s ok needs work
by IsaacDoesIt YT on 2020/07/12 16:25
I love the text feature but it’s on the screen for the whole clip and what if you don’t want to cut the clip to rid the text you should add a time for how long the text is on the screen
Good I guess
by PuppyLoverForever9 on 2020/07/12 15:24
I mean I just HATE that when you make the movie.. the screen moves. WHYYYYYY 😒
It’s amazing!!!!
by I movie rules on 2020/07/12 15:09

Poor.
by Giddbjhd on 2020/07/12 02:33
Can’t split. The layout is hard to use for beginners. Poorly designed app when it’s supposed to be simple.
One suggestion
by StupidLittleBunnyChild on 2020/07/11 22:39
I love IMovie so much. I always make videos on it for friends! But I was wondering if y’all could add a feature where is shows the full photo without ken burns affect. The ken burns affect is super annoying. I also think you guys should add different colors of texts and different fonts. Thats all, <3
Some glitches
by joecamelblue on 2020/07/11 19:53
I do stop motions and edit it on iMovie. I love it. But there is this glitch where sometimes from a new clip to a new clip, there is a black screen for like 1 second in between and because of that, all my sound effects got played earlier than before. It is so frustrating considering that it takes 5 days for a stop motion and another 1 days for the sound effects/music. Also there is a delay in the sound effect s that I put in. It is so frustrating
Timer
by Puzzlehub on 2020/07/11 19:27
Timeline needs a timer. Could you add an easy audio sync feature?
Amazing app

Best Editing app

Over all this app is great but I can’t add a text in my video for a split second but I really think they need to fix this but other then that this app is great!😀
Sound editor
by bababindy on 2020/07/11 00:21
I was exciting to have this app and I realized it does not have enough sound editing features like noise reduction and HD equalizer. I hope adobe come up with better version which at least be worth money.
Not worth the headache
by WalkingThroughThePainSeth on 2020/07/10 23:34
Don’t understand why the sound gets thrown out of sync with the video during the edit process. Too much of a headache for me to deal with. Worked 2 days on a 13 minute video only to be shown my time and energy have been completely wasted. Still....when I cannot edit a video together without having the voice sync.... quite frustrating. So....I’m gonna post the glitchy video on my channel and show everyone what they get with using this app. And how they shouldn’t waste a moment of their time by even bothering to download

I love iMovie

Great Software, Glaring issue
by GammaGomma on 2020/07/09 21:51
iMovie Has been great for me, as I recently got into editing. A flaw here is that my footage keeps on corrupting at random. Like, I’m working on a video, and at a random point I can’t do anything, and everything is black when I go back into the software. Why is that?
Love it.
by Kadiaka on 2020/07/09 20:33
When I first started making Youtube videos my friend recommended this app. I tried it out and its great! I learned how to use it, plus there’s no watermark! Since I’m on a phone I use the zoom tool which is amazing!! Love it 😊
This app is the worst app ever

by Anix for president on 2020/07/09 05:25
This app is very useful! I look forward to using it very often as I have been waiting for my iPhone to update to this. There’s one thing that I highly dislike about this app. Even if u have an iPhone X like I do, it isn’t very helpful when you have a newer phone and this app still doesn’t take it. After all I highy suggest this app for others ;)
Great but one problem.
by xXiiEZiiXx on 2020/07/09 04:25
When I use this and edit my Roblox video and my intro, the video gets stuck and is probably lagging. Is there a way to fix this?

Me gusta la app por que hace que la edición de videos sea fácil, pero te cierra la app cuando quieres editar un video. Y eso no me gusta 👎
I LOVE THIS APP
by Mya duran on 2020/07/08 22:03

It went from Bad to Worse
by alessnwonderland on 2020/07/08 21:54
iMovie was having issues exporting movies so I updated it & now it locks up & crashes my computer. YAYYYYY! *sarcastically throws confetti in the air* Wonderful!
Super neat
by GoodRaperFungril on 2020/07/08 16:45
I like this app because it is super cool and I love making the movies there is no bad things about this app. 😁

IT IS GREAT!
This is not a good choice.
by Langdonoid Hangonoid on 2020/07/08 15:08
iMovie is completely bugged out. 1. It says you can’t upload a video because the video is deleted from your photos when it’s not 2. You can’t choose what frame by frame you want 3. You can’t watch the video if clips are deleted or it’s bugged out 4. I screen record a video and put it as my audio but it says I can’t because the clip is deleted from my photos as I screen recorded it 5. You can’t add any sound you want 6. If you accidentally deleted something or did something wrong you can’t go back so just watch out for that 7. This app needs bug fixing
Exports don’t work half the time
by KelseyKaitlin on 2020/07/08 04:52
This app is trash. I cannot tell you how many times I have worked on a project only for the clip to not export to my iPad or iPhone. Why is it that the app that is MADE to be compatible with my phone and iPad doesn’t even seem compatible with my phone and iPad? Literally so frustrating to work on a project all day and then it won’t export to my camera roll, or anywhere else for that matter, for me to upload it.
Great App!
by Rena Elmer on 2020/07/08 00:38
I honestly think this is a great app! I’ve had this app for almost 2 years now, and it’s never messed it never turned my screen black or even glitched for me. Overall, there are many video
Almost perfect, almost!
by ResSil151 on 2020/05/05 08:44
So. It’s very rare that I leave a review on apps, but this one deserves it. I have been having an absolute blast with this, especially since I’ve really gotten into drone photography and it’s the perfect tool to make for video editing. My favorite feature honestly is making the movie trailers, it’s so fun with a compilation of media. The ONLY issue I have with it is that I’d love more freedom. Once you pick the general theme it predetermines what you can do. It boxes you into a certain amount of clips per section and has a variety of different kinds that you cant control whatsoever. So for example. One section in the trailer would have 3 slots for clips. The first one would be a .9 second, the next one would be a 3 second closeup (which is very annoying since it zooms way in on the picture or video and there’s nothing you can do to adjust it or stop it.) so if it’s a video it could focus in and cut out what you actually want to show in the clip which makes it impossible to use a lot of media. The third one could be 1.5 seconds. The fact that you can’t change the number of possible clips in a section and that you can’t change the duration of any of the clips is very frustrating. But beyond that this is an AMAZING app that I will love using for a long time, definitely worth having to be more strategic on what media I place where.
Great, But Here is a Suggestion
by QwQ GamerGirl on 2020/06/28 15:29
Yes, iMovie is a great movie and trailer or film maker, you can make retro trailers/films/movies, romance, teens, family, fairy tale, swashbuckler, expedition, superhero, scary, coming of age, indie, Bollywood, adrenaline, and narrative movies films or trailers. I know, a lot of options 😅. But... There should be an option where you can change the music and where you can have the images and videos you took on iMovie only be stored in the movies on your app, not the gallery. It is a huge waste of space for your device, especially if you make lots of movies/trailers like me. I wish you could make the trailers longer than a minute, and can make it 1-4 minutes at least for trailers. When making a trailer, you can’t hear any talking or sounds just music. Maybe still keep the music, because that is still cool, but make there a setting where you can turn off music and can hear talking and sounds. Still a very great app I recommend, but I am just hoping for an update that will change that and further experience in the update. I hope this is good enough to explain the change I’d be grateful for and to explain to others who might download this app. Please make this change though, if not, it’s fine but thx anyways ☺️
Great & Useful, But A Few Problems
by Baugher2010 on 2020/03/25 17:32
This app is actually really functional to be honest. I’ve been using it for a long time now, and it’s very helpful to me & other peers. ——————————————————————————— Unfortunately, there have been problems with the app. The lag is something I’ve experienced, however, I have to confess that this may only happen when the clip has become very large\long, but it can mostly restart the app itself if its gotten that bad. —————————————————————————————— Here’s another problem that’s been happening lately. This may sound strange, but most of the time my “hard working” clips have been deleted automatically, but this has nothing to do with me deleting any photos or videos in my Album. However, sometimes it can actually delete half of the clip that I made\others that have experienced it. I have nothing to infer over this situation. —————————————————————————————— Another small issue is the freezing. Now that’s something I & everyone else can understand while reading this. So expect freezing on a huge app that takes up tons of space. —————————————————————————————— I hope this review really lets you know that your app is amazing 🍎! ‘Thanks, hope to get a reply from you guys!
How dare people put up bad reviews if they haven’t even tried all the features yet!!
by xxoeumm on 2020/06/15 01:05
People are putting up bad reviews because they don’t know how to use it properly. I have used lots of movie makers and this one is the best. You can do everything in it. I think maybe if you explained all the features properly, then people would know how to use it. I just hate one thing about it. You can’t export longer movies. If your movie is longer than 1 minute, the sound quality becomes terrible. This app also takes up a lot of space. You cannot store your movies in iMovie. If you delete any content in the movie from your photo library, it automatically gets deleted from your movie. It is also a terrible green screen app. It makes these weird lines come when you use the feature and looks unrealistic. I wish that iMovie theater was still supported. I also hope that in the next version you can pick out backgrounds from a background selector in iMovie. This app is way better than veescope live. It is accessible and easy. And it works. It just needs a few more features. I also hope that in the future, users won’t have to record their videos in front of green screens to change the background. But that is too much to ask. So for now, this app is pretty much perfect.
I’ve only seen 1080P results on an iPhone 8
by FOFS on 2019/12/05 22:54
As far as I can tell, iMovie works great. I had to do some overlay stuff (PIP) which required me to look up instructions for that online, and I learned a lot about other more “advanced” features as well. Once, during many, many edits of a short video, it did seem to stop working, so I just restarted it. I’m looking forward to adding my own music next to see how that works. It’s super easy once you get the hang of it after searching specific online instructions. I mean, skip the basic feature instructions, they are already very straightforward and more or less intuitive. And what a bargain it is!👍 Meanwhile, those other video editing apps might not even have the some of the features you want, except maybe for an extra charge, and/or vampirize your wallet with regular subscription fees, charge $90 for a one time fee, and end up having you in fetal position shaking like a leaf in a corner somewhere wondering how you, at least temporarily, lost that full, unlocked app you already paid a much better price for that went to a $ubscription plan. If this app crashes on your phone or iPad, I don’t have anything supercalifragilistic to say about that. So far, I have no complaints in that department whatsoever.
LOVE IT
by happy panacorn on 2020/05/15 22:41
This....is......the......best......editing......software.....I’ve....ever....use. Other editing apps make everything over complicated by making it look all “professional” or “easy”. Some apps make it so you can’t find anything and you have to enter all these strange unhelpful commands while others all you can do is plop the video in, put in a filter, and maybe add some random sounds. But this app is so good! You can do so much with it, it’s super easy, AND if you are willing to spice things up you can put it into pro mode where you can do even more! It’s even better because IT HAS A FRICKING UNDO BUTTON! It’s so helpful if you made a big mistake and you don’t want to have to do it all over again! It also has so many transitions that are so fun to play with along with the funny and awesome sound effects (my favorite it the time travel one) the only thing I have to complained about is that the default transition is fade and so I have to go through my entire video and put it to the standard one witch really annoys me I would also like a *BLEEP* sound effect because it’s so good for humor and if someone says...something... but other than that it’s so good and I don’t understand why it’s only rated 3.9 stars WHEN IT CLEARLY DESERVES A 4.5! soooo yea that’s all I have to say!
Great possibilities, major flaws
by P. Jones Moody on 2020/06/11 16:44
I’m an amateur when it comes to video production, having taken a few undergraduate courses in Final Cut and studio production in the early 2000s. I love having the basic editing options available in iMovie, especially now on iPad Pro. Generally, it all works very well, but there are some oversights that really need to be remedied in order for this to be a full-featured “first party” app worth long-term investment. 1) Memory usage, especially when “editing down” to share the final product. Multiple times, when attempting to share ~30-minute 1080 HD projects to my photo library, I have run into issues with the app telling me there is not enough memory to share the project. And that is with 200GB of device memory available (as shown in Settings), after deleting all unnecessary apps, downloaded feature films, and the like. My remedy: every time I start a new project, I delete all existing projects in the iMovie app, then delete the iMovie app itself, then reboot the iPad, then re-download the app, and then begin the project. This has been the only way to remedy the memory issues. 2) Audio/Video synchronization and waveform inconsistencies. Sometimes when editing clips, the audio waveform jumps ahead or behind, although the audio itself *sounds correct* while still editing. Sometimes, after the final mix-down and sharing, certain clips have audio that is shifted ahead or behind the video by a significant margin.
Brilliant app to use!
by Sunnyland1097 on 2020/04/17 03:42
This app is awesome to be honest cause it helps you know some technology skills for editing and this helps me a lot when I wanna do some gacha mini movies! But there is a problem though, So when I try to post the photo into the imovie, It just lags and glitches. I don’t mean to tell you that you should fix it. It could be the problem of my connection. I use this app for when I feel like doing a gacha movie. I chosen imovie to be a good editing app because (this is my opinion) you can add really cool music! My fav is O.P.E.N because some of these music don’t have the lyrics but for me, I like music with lyrics but sometimes I don’t but anyways, I also like the way there is beautiful effects so when you wanna be in a good photo you can use imovie to add in an effect! For the people reading this and disagreeing, This is MY opinion I don’t mean to give hate for the developer that did not remove the lag or certain types of problem! It could probably be my connection.
Not as great as I remember
by juststankylegandmoveon on 2020/05/20 01:53
When I started using iMovie as an beginner’s tool a couple years back, it was very easy to use and understand. Every video I made came out exactly as I edited it, and I could do it for hours on end with no issues. Now, I have moved on to other softwares as I’ve improved, but I came back to this one to use as a base for my more simple clips and audios; plus I already knew how to use it and expected it to be just as easy as I remembered. But, coming back, I notice how it keeps crashing, whether it is a sudden black screen that forces me back to my home screen a second later, or even glitches within the app. For instance, I tried changing the volume of an audio by selecting it—and it split it where I had selected it?? It may sound like a small bug, but it gets very frustrating when it happens over and over again and I have to undo it. It was never like that before. Same issue with clips, sometimes it won’t even let me select one I want to crop or slow down, etc. It forces me to leave the project, the app itself, sometimes even to the point of turning my phone off just to get it running again—just to get it to crash again. I really hope you guys find this and fix even the small issues, iMovie was so brilliant before.
Glitches from iOS 12.3.1 update
by RannyPanny on 2019/07/10 23:19
Please, Please, Please Fix! I only use iMovie and usually love it...however, Since the latest update for my iPad that includes green screen there are a variety of issues making the app difficult to use....I feel very inconvenienced after having to start again and edit an hour long movie three times! Lagging start and editing, Greyed out clips and a black preview screen, glitches....overlays blacked out, some clips fine some blacked out, also after adding new clips to the edit when I press to play the movie it says it’s “downloading from iCloud” but it never does. I have iCloud Photo Library option on “Keep Originals”, and the iCloud option for iMovie off, yet it still tries to download from it. I even signed out of my device and but it gives the same message. If all the clips used in the project are in full resolution on my iPad, I signed out of iCloud AND I had the setting on “keep originals” why is it still trying to download from this cloud?. The other perfectly fine clips also glitch and sometimes say the same message. All the clips ultimately alternate from being fine to acting out and being blacked out and glitching. Movie taking forever to load or freezing..have tried troubleshooting by restarting the movie from scratch...Same thing happening since update.
Great but I have a big problem
by Werty536743 on 2020/04/21 00:59
I’m a youtuber my channel is NINJAZOMBIESLAYER I’ve been using this sense the start of my channel and my problems with it is that when I transport a video to my photos and then try to delete it from the imovies it takes a long time to delete I also am never able to delete some videos which forces me to delete and reinstall the app which I’ve done many times the reason this is a big problem is that if I can’t delete the vid from imovies and have the vid transferred to the photos is then I have a duplicated vid taking up lots of storage if I made a 30 min vid and transported it and can’t delete it from the imovies I then have 1 hour worth of video storage which is 5 to 10 GB which doesn’t only effect me but you the developers of this app because people like my sis who only have 5 GB will never be able to use this app which lowers the amount of downloads of your app and it effects us by taking up our storage which forces us to upgrade storage just for this app.
Absolutely love this
by SoccerPro⚽️ on 2020/05/09 19:45
I’ve had iMovie for about 3-4 years now. If I could, I would give it 50,000 stars. I know there’s lots of video making apps out there, but I love this one. Something cool is that it’s already included on apple products, so you know it has to be good. If this is to basic for you, it’s also included in other Apple devices such as a MacBook and MacBook Pro. There’s a little more detailed work you can do on that program. For me, iMovie has become the app I use for everything. You can seriously make anything on there. I’ve learned how to do so much on this app. It could be the kind of thing where I decide to go to the pool one day, and I realize that they’ve added something new there. I can instantly grab my phone and make a video with my friends about our fun day at the pool. Or, I could make something serious and add meaningful music to the background. My favorite thing to do is have characters in these videos. You can make mini movies and I highly recommend this app.
Garbage
by garrett_w314 on 2020/05/11 20:08
This is literally the worst possible program to use to do anything with video. Do you want to cut up video and make something cool? Don’t use iMovie. Do you want to manipulate audio to make something more interesting? Don’t use iMovie. Do you want to just have something to make a quick school project with that’s easy and does what you want? Don’t use iMovie. I can’t explain how horrible this app is. When you trim audio or video, don’t expect it to do what you think it will. It acts like it has a mind of its own, cutting to wherever it wants to, not to where you guide it. Trying to move sound around is a complete disaster, you have to try at least 3 times just to get the piece of sound where you want it- every time you have it placed where you want it, it just jumps away to its own spot that’s not near where you just had your finger. I am beyond frustrated just trying to put together a video for a school project. I literally took 5 minutes away from it to write this review out of pure hatred for this app. I could be working on it trying to work around it’s flaws, but this seems like a more efficient use of my time. Please just look elsewhere for video software this garbage isn’t worth a second of your time.
the app is starting to crash ..
by aly_loca on 2019/04/17 04:21
This app is extremely great. It it so great for comedy videos and vlogs and more. This is the one and only app I use because it’s the best..but, it’s been crashing lately all sudden..while I’m working on my video, it’ll turn the screen black and won’t let me see the video at all. also when I’m trying to split the video it wouldn’t show and when I tap on the clip it will take me back to the clip before. However, when I put sound affects into my clips, when it glitches or crashes, it will place the sound affects further back and not where I want it to be. I love this app but it gets me upset because I end up deleting my hard work project that I put effort in because of the crashes and how everything gets all over the place and messes the video up. I also tried saving my project before it gets worse instead of just deleting it but it told me “fail to export”. Please fix these issues because I don’t like dealing with this situation that kind of gets me upset and just wastes my time and so as other people. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Thanks you.
TRAILER MAKER IS SO FRUSTRATING
by gurlwhogives on 2019/10/29 23:57
This app is pretty good and has a decent movie maker, but it has some issues. I’m not getting an crashes but it does need more features. I think this app would be a lot better if it had some more trailer making options. You should have an option to make videos in the trailer maker have sound instead of just music. Also the music and backdrops and effects should be editable. It’s stupid that you can’t edit it. Also more genres would be funnier. It’s really difficult to get the right feel for the movie. And the thing I want the absolute most? I want the videos I film IN THE APP to stop going TO MY CAMERA. I’m a neat freak about my phone storage and I can’t film one thing without my storage getting all filled up with stupid mini shots and it’s SO LAME. It made me really mad especially because I always have to delete them so they don’t hog my storage! If these problems were fixed it would be totally perfect but it’s not which made me so sad because I can’t find any other apps with a decent trailer maker. Also one more thing the teen trailer maker is so hard to work with because of the random images in the backdrop not matching the text. SO ANNOYING! 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
It’s sad, really
by SprinkleMaster001 on 2019/04/07 21:19
First!!!! Let’s start with the pros. First, the quality is decent. It’s nice that you can make trailers and post them on facebook or whatever. When your making a movie you just record stuff from your camera and it turns into little clips when you insert it into iMovie. Cons. When you record a trailer or movie, it doesn’t let you delete stuff from your camera. First time I used it I made a trailer for a horror movie with my brother. I watched it and I was impressed. Since the clips of video were in my camera I deleted all of the little clips and figured that I could still watch my trailer. When I went to watch the the next day, a message appeared saying that there are missing films in my trailer and I can’t watch it. That was because I deleted the clips from my camera! That’s just plain stupid, because if you expect me to actually keep 10 minute videos on my iPhone along with over 20 little clips??? That’s the biggest waste of space ever! And don’t get me started on how much storage the app takes up itself! Unless you want all of your iCloud storage to be depleted in 3.5 seconds, I don’t recommend this app. 😡
Really disappointed.
by batwomayne on 2019/01/16 13:17
Really, for 5$ (at least it was when I bought it years ago) you'd think it'd be WAY less glitchy. No matter what I do, the same glitches seem to occur for me over the past years. I've been through three different phones, and it's a bummer because I can't find an app that is quite advanced as this one (is supposed to be). The worst thing about all of the glitches if I have to pick just one- is the audio problems. If I made a background clip MUTE, it should stay mute. Sometimes I will save a video to my phone and the entire audio will suddenly be in the background even though it wasn't there when I previewed it. Sometimes I get screechy noises on moments where I made a clip break. No matter what I do I can't seem to fix this or get it to save to my phone differently. It's really agitating seeing as how it's been years. Sigh. Please. This app has so much potential. (Edit) And now I’ll probably stop using it completely because suddenly I can’t use ANY music? What the *** is this?? I paid for this app and can’t use any music because it’s “protected”. I’m making this video for my own personal use. I should be able to use the music on my phone. This broke my heart. Thanks iMovie
How can a company take pride in something so awful
by skjsnendnx on 2020/05/14 05:28
This app used to be good but for some reason I can’t even make simple videos for school projects without having to struggle immensely for no reason. I read some of the other reviews and I’m glad I saw some regarding the issue with placement. You can’t place things on your own. For sample I tried to drag a audio clip to start at a certain point in the video. Every time I would try to place the audio bar in a certain place the app would automatically move it a couple centimeters ahead or behind. This makes it so frustrating to get good timing in my videos because of this stupid i don’t even know what it is. You guys make countless of updates but your staff seems to have inherited Stevie wonders vision because it actually seems like the bugs and glitches are getting worse. Of course I’m not expecting professional level editing for a free application, but if an app that apple proudly presents for their customers to use can barely place an audio bit correctly, than you guys need to start getting laser eye surgery and making some REAL changes and updates. Oh I’m sure you fixed the bugs just like your updates say. You don’t.
Needs HUGE debugging
by jackkiinnnweechan on 2020/05/11 10:57
I am an amateur gaming editor and I have been using this to improve my skills. I have also created memes out of it and it is an absolute blast using this app. I always love using it to create something entertaining. However, there are a lot of bugs that need fixing. One for example, is videos that I recently added have a tendency to not show up when I go to edit them. I spent an hour trying to port a clip from my camera roll to iMovie, cycling through different methods and jumping through tons of hoops just to be able to create a quick montage for a client. A gaming edit that shouldn’t have taken more than an hour or so took three hours because when I went to grab more clips from my camera roll, the same thing happened. This really needs to be fixed. This problem alone is enough to steer me towards uninstalling and using another editor. Other than that bug, it is an amazing app. It is extremely user friendly and easy to learn and I think everyone should play with it to make something nice. Please address this issue! 🙏🏻
PLEASE FIX THIS
by merry shakouri on 2020/05/01 20:59
I’m not even kidding I was working for hours on Editing my yt vid and I was finally done. I usually watch the whole thing to check if I didn’t everything right. Tell me why every single overlay I took 5 minutes to do each was early. Everything got messed up. I have to redo it now. I was crying for like 20 minutes straight. I’m not even kidding I’m SO MAD. I took time out of studying so I could finish this video. Then iMovie glitches and puts every single over lay that I spent a long time to be perfect, earlier than it should have been. This is not the first time. I’m not gonna keep wasting my time to do a video then this ends up happening. Please fix this problem. Cause I can’t handle it anymore. It’s 5:00 am rn I started editing at 10:00 pm. And everything is messed up. I am so furious. And sad. And every single bad emotion. Hello I’m editing this. The same thing happens again. I finished the video again and the same thing happened. I’m literally about to lose my mind. And I can’t update it then all my progress on other projects will be lost
Overall being ruined by many problems.
by Evan to the 87 practic on 2020/04/21 16:05
I’ve used this app for so long. Let’s face it, maybe a few years or 1? It was easy and compressed to used as you could add your own music to Movies at the time, and more. But whatever update it was, it ruined the app. A few days ago I was trying to edit a video I made, and when I recorded my voice over it? Everything had a stroke. My voice was delayed, the video ended too early, my voice cutoff the edge, the cuts didn’t match with the video. I thought, maybe that was a glitch, won’t happen today. So I go to edit a minecraft video, and take a guess what happens. Y’know, I really liked this app and still do a bit, but whatever update that made that.. it ruined it. So I deleted the app out of anger. Fix this or i’ll just give up on iMovie entirely. I had so much work put into it, and right as I get ready to add my voiceover, IT GLITCHES FOR THE 2ND FRICKING TIME. 3 stars, would give it 5 but the glitch ruined it. Fix. This. Also, if this helps, i’m on an iPad Pro. I don’t know much more, just I know i’m on an iPad Pro.
App won’t open
by imthecomputerguy on 2017/09/30 02:09
Okay, I’m just going to say that I love this app and I use It ALL the time. But, last night the video was about 20 minutes long and the app got SUPER Slow. It took hours to edit something that shouldn’t have. I’ve never had this problem before so I don’t know what’s wrong. this morning I was working on the project And got out of the app temporarily and tried to get back on and it won’t allow me to get back on since! I was really looking forward to making the finishing touches and showing my family but now I cannot. I thought it may have something to do with a storage problem so I got rid of 13 Gigs of storage and it STILL won’t open! I’ve restarted the app countless times, and restarted my phone and yet it still won’t let me open the app. Aaahhhggg help!! This is the first time I’ve had issues with the app. And I don’t want to loose all the hard work I’ve put into this and many other videos as well. Please help
⚠️DO NOT GET THIS APP⚠️
by hahshajabab on 2020/07/15 19:22
I used to love iMovie. However, once I started to take editing seriously, the app failed me. I would work long and hard on editing a project and then the app would ERASE all my work. The part where it shows my videos is black. I cannot play the video nor edit it anymore. There was one time when I somehow managed to save the edits I made, but nine out of ten times I’ve lost my work. If I could give it zero stars I would. I’m warning people now, do not get this app. There are many times I have wanted to write a review about this app, and how it takes away all your hard work, but most recently I went on a trip, and took videos there and started to edit them. Just now, today, I was editing it, and the screen went black where it shows my video. I couldn’t save my edits and hard work. And I can’t retake those videos. The only other option was to start all over and take hours and hours to do it. I did not have the time. But today, when I was editing it and the screen went black, I decided to write a review because I was fed up with it taking my hard work. In conclusion, this app is not a good choice if you are really trying to edit well.

it used to be really good, but lately it's been having trouble. i have an iphone 7 so i know it's not my phone. here's a few things you could fix: 1. let us crop it instead of having it always stay horizontal. i have vertical videos i put on there and it puts borders on the side and zooms straight in to the middle. if that's what you call a great editing app, i've seen better. i like lots of the features on imovie, but it's hard to use. 2. sometimes when i'm editing it just stops and doesn't let me change anything and moves the clips around where i dont want them. so i press done then edit it again and the video just goes black and i can't even play it. that's my main issue because i always have to keep starting over and it doesn't even let me save the video after it breaks. 3. maybe have the quality a little better? i press the highest quality when i'm done and it comes out much worse than before i even put it in imovie. please give thought to actually fixing it, because this app does have very good features, but it makes editing confusing and way harder than it needs to be.
Great, but more features need to be added.
by Aidan Carreon on 2020/06/26 00:16
This app is astonishing, Especially since it is free! But a couple more feature that I’m about to say will actually make the app better! 1. It would be better if you could move, or shrink the green screen video. This would actually be helpful for beginner youtubers/editors to have more subscribers, 2. If you could, make the ken burns effect able to work on the video, not just the picture. Meaning like if you’re moving your hand in a video, the ken burns effect can move along with the hand! 3. Make the text on the video able to move by your own liking! That would really help a lot, and also add text fonts, and text animations. But that’s basically all feature that I would love to see in IMovie, if you add the following features. That‘ll be the happiest update of my life. But besides that, the app is very awesome for beginners, also since it is very simple to understand and use!
Requires IOS 13.0
by Olivia.Magg on 2020/02/04 23:18
I have been using iMovie for quite a while. But sadly it says you need IOS 13.0. Which I don’t have. So I would very much like for iMovie to change that. iMovie is very good with editing though. For vlogs, movies, trailers. All is good from that point of view. With the text it’s hard to keep it in one spot without going through the whole section your doing. Just realize that some apps have their imperfections but iMovie is a great app. Me and my close friends just finished making a movie and a movie trailer. I hope you like iMovie too. I sure do! I’m just hoping they let people with a lower IOS use iMovie again. I really loved iMovie till it wouldn’t let me use it anymore. Overall iMovie is great it just has a few little glitches and stuff like that. Which all apps do. So if your going to complain about iMovie than you have over a million other apps to complain about to. This app is one of the least apps you would complain about. I love iMovie! If your looking at reviews to get a recommendation you really should try iMovie. If you have a high enough IOS😂😂 But definitely and I mean definitely try out iMovie! It’s really fun just a warning!!
Unreliable!
by jonyq107 on 2020/06/16 17:54
This is the most unreliable glitchy useless video editing app I’ve ever used! I just spent hours on a project and it the then this stupid app overlaps the audio and delays it a few seconds just enough so that it screws everything up. Not to mention it’s behind on so many features that plenty of other apps already have it’s absurd. It does this almost every single time I try editing a video. It’s ridiculous. Please fix this app for the love of God and all things good. Edit: I just spent an hour fixing all of the audio to my video and right after I got done fixing it, the audio glitches again and messed everything up.. I’m done with this app. It is so unreliable and seems to waste as much of my time as possible. I could've finished my online course on my computer with all the time I spent on iMovie but instead, it wasted that time and I didn’t get anything out of it since it glitched. You would think that a company as big as apple would at the very least have a RELIABLE app, but instead we have this stupid glitchy app with little to no useful features that would actually matter while editing videos. DO NOT USE THIS APP!
Great app! but some issues..
by Rainbowdashesbiggestfan on 2019/04/07 12:15
I am a nice person who likes making weird movies 😂 I’m not a pro with this app, I am really funny with my movies though but sometimes, it’s GLITCHY and why when I make a movie it just shows the starting part of the movie in the theater maybe this is just because I’m a newbie or because it just does that. I want to not see the starting part of the movie in the theater, I want it to be the words like the trailers with a theme but I don’t know how to do that. Also when I want to add a song from the music app it’s DRM protected,Even when I’m not going to publish the movie I’m making! Just showing it to my friends for a laugh 😆 and I make cartoony character animations in my movies and I want some silly music to go with it,But I cant get it and the theme music doesn’t really go with it. So basically, I just don’t like the music problem and the glitches but besides that, This app is amazing!! 🤩 have a nice day or night or what ever time your reading this 😂
Why I think it’s good
by boysarenotmyfavoritename on 2019/07/23 21:57
So I know you guys had some bad reviews, but it looks fine to me. I don’t know am I crazy? Are people over reacting? I don’t really make movies I just make trailers, I don’t know if there is something wrong with movies but everything seems fine with trailers. I mean overall it’s good. There was another app where everything there you needed to buy. I glad you can actually film in this one. Me and my friends love making trailers on this app. I hope it doesn’t get shut down. To be honest I don’t think anything is wrong with it. I just never make movies maybe someone makes movies and is really mad it’s broken. But you shouldn’t really care about audio anyways. At least they gave you music. You should enjoy the app. The only complaint I have is I’m on an iPad and I used iMovie on a computer once and the computer has more trailers? Is it a new update? Honestly I still love iMovie. Thank you.
I love iMovie, I hate iMovie
by oenchristian on 2019/02/17 18:39
APPLE PLEASE LISTEN TO ME For the past 3 years, I have been creating movies using the beautifully simple and somewhat intuitive iMovie app on iPhone, that once I learned how to use, opened and closed so many doors. On one hand, my editing skills got better, my creativity got better, and I could pull out shots from videos using iMovie that I wouldn’t have been able to use otherwise. Now on the other hand, the glitches. They have destroyed countless videos of mine due to the obvious stick-and-glue creation of the app and the complete lack of thought put into it. I swear any time nowadays I try to make a video, it crashes and all my music and audio is moved over a couple seconds and there goes my video. I edited a feature length long vlog that took me 2 months to edit because after a while of editing the various transitions between clips would be erased and replaced with what made it seem like a painful blink between clips. I have had it while I’m exporting the video to my camera roll, some of the audio is just taken out. APPLE I will gladly show you all of the videos I have with your various glitches. Please just FIX IMOVIE!!
Had some issues :/
by RedNightingale on 2018/11/04 03:02
I started out using iMovie for a class project, and because I discovered the trailer options, I began to use it for fun. I used videos of my friends to make funny movies of them because, why not? Eventually, I began to use iMovie on my MacAir, and that was when I realized what the app was missing. Since most of my videos were vertical, there was no way on the app for me to crop them to size and PLACEMENT of my choice. The app will take the vertical videos and fit them to a landscape layout, but it crops off the edges. When dealing with videos of people, this would mean that the template crops out their heads, and there is no way to adjust the videos so that I can reposition the window (on the app). Also, in the app’s trailer mode, I can’t seem to find a way to add a filter to individual clips like I can on the computer. Since I discovered all these missing features, the iMovie player on my computer is acting up, leaving it completely unusable. Now that I am forced to use the app, you can see how frustrated I am with the lack of options available. I highly recommend an update.
Very good, but...
by DisneyCars2 on 2019/02/04 01:39
So I enjoy this app a lot, and I use it to edit a lot of my videos. There are some changes I would recommend, though. Firstly, please fix the bug that makes hidden photos and videos viewable in the video sidebar. Secondly, please add more trailer templates and text templates. It’s basically stayed the same over the years, and it’d be great to have some new text templates trailer templates. And lastly, please add more music, and sound effects. Currently, I’ve heard just about every stock music track on iMovie (mobile) so maybe you could add some music from the desktop version, or maybe even compose some more? Also, about the sound effects on iMovie, and it’d be great if you could add more, again, like the desktop version. Please take some of these ideas into consideration, but please don’t feel obliged to add in every single one. With all of these ideas, iMovie could be one of the BEST editing apps on mobile phones. Thank you!! Sincerely, Christopher Oki
It’s keeps crashing
by hedjbdvhd on 2019/10/09 20:23
I’m trying to like this app but I can’t it’s so frustrating to edit on. Ever time I what to a put a song on my video it’s starts to the beginning and not where I want it to go. The app keeps crashing and I have to keep leaving the app and coming back. Sometimes it pausing out of nowhere and the music keeps playing. I don’t have time for this I just want edit my video and get it over. This is giving me a headache trying to figure what’s going on. My clips keep disappearing or the music sometimes it just moves to a different spot where I didn’t put it. I like KineMaster better even if it has a watermark it gets the job without frustrating I wanted to change my editing app because it had a watermark but now I really just want to go back to the app because it much easier to handle. Can you please fix this I have two videos to editing and it’s not going to get the job with these problems. Someone already address these problems it’s been a month and nothing happened yet.
Great place to start, but terrible to continue.
by Ze Operator on 2020/06/26 01:00
I’ll get straight to the point - the app does its job in acting as a post-production workstation, even on its mobile version. You can certainly make a nice film out of it if you try hard enough. Unfortunately, there is a severe lack of tools and a heavy amount of restriction that actually make it worth coming back to. Things like limiting the aspect ratio on photo (with the default setting to apply ken burns when usually it’s a filler method to make photos look good. There’s absolutely no need to add ken burns to EVERY photograph), limiting the amount of audio files attached to each slide to 4 per shot, limited amount of transitions, filters, and just a heavy restriction overall in terms of what movie we want to make over conventional work. Naturally, everyone has to start somewhere. But simply letting a workstation limit the amount that you can do for a movie is almost like mitigating wanting to make a good home movie at all. Feel free to use this. But if you’re a seasoned post-production editor, please consider the following before you use this.
Good editing app!!
by GirlGam3r73 on 2020/03/17 00:07
This app is good for editing and I highly recommend it if you enjoy making videos There’s just some things I wish it had, and it could improve it dramatically. The option to freeze music: I enjoy making music sync videos, but it’s hard to when I can’t freeze the music, so I might do something that could cause me to have to re-edit the entire thing, which can be a pain. Be able to move text around: If this was added I wouldn’t have a use for CuteCut because that’s all I use CC for, is to have moveable text. Custom zooming: With this, you could slowly zoom in and out in the video depending on how long the zoom duration lasts. And to go along with that, being able to cut smaller sections of video (and to have to option to turn off auto snapping in the video, what I mean by that is when you’re in the middle of a transition, like actually IN BETWEEN 2 clips, it moves over to which ever one the play head is closest to, that’s what I mean) because it gets annoying to have to cut areas of a video, than extend it back again because I can’t cut a certain section, or the playhead just automatically moves over There’s some problems I’ve encountered 1: When I’m done editing a video, there will be an audio delay where there wasn’t before in the raw video 2. Sometimes, the entire thing will refuse the keep playing, OR let me edit. The app will crash when I try to on said videos.
Horrible in the past, but now starting to get back on track.
by ckshap on 2018/01/17 20:14
I’ve owned this app for about maybe 5 years now? Ever since I got my first iPad, I have fallen in love with this app and caught myself using it many, many times again. However, it did get frustrating editing videos eventually, as there were many unsolved bugs and glitches. I used to hate iMovie because of this. What’s even worse is that I can’t really disable features I don’t like such as videos and pictures you take automatically saves to your camera roll so it’s easier to accidentally delete something and ruin your video. These problems are being fixed as we speak, but even then, they still exist. I’ve learned to accept it. However, with that being said, there is one feature that definitely stands out to me from all the others. iCloud downloading. iCloud downloading is the bane of my existence. No matter how many times it downloads everything, it always comes back and wastes 10 minutes of your time when all you want to do is preview the video. It shows up EVERY TIME I try to watch/edit one of my videos. I don’t understand the point of this! All of the videos are successfully downloaded onto my camera roll! What’s even worse is that I cannot disable it in settings, iCloud, or any other branch of iMovie I could possibly get my hands on. It’s a fallacy that people would like this feature, I don’t even understand the point of it at all. Hoping for a developer’s response?
Some changes should be made
by Redhead #3 on 2019/08/04 22:21
I love this app! It has helped me through a lot of school projects and just having fun! I love making movie trailers bc they always turn out professional and really funny! I have been told I have a talent behind the camera, and I really want to keep that talent. Anyway, about the movie trailers, I would really like to see if you could create your own theme and music template. If that makes sense. Like for example, the scary template. I would like to make a scary movie trailer but I want to make my own soundtrack for it and maybe make it longer. I would like to be able to do that. I would also like to create a whole new theme. And possibly multiple. Another thing I would add, is for the text boxes. I would like to have the option of moving them around however I would like and to change the color and design of it. Those are only a few things I would change and add! I hope these changes do get made, tho!
not downloading!
by Lilian🏝 on 2019/05/05 14:23
so basically i’ve had imovie as long as i’ve had my new phone, which is like a year and a half. at one point in like October ‘18, i ran out of storage so i deleted imovie. i didn’t rly care tho bc i wasn’t going to do anything with the videos and they were rly bad. about a month later, i decided to reinstall it just bc i wanted to make a quick video for my sisters bday. it installed and i was able to make a rly cool video for her. i later deleted it. now it’s May ‘19 and i want to reinstall it. ITS NOT DOWNLOADING! i have enough storage and everything! i’m connected to WIFI so it SHOULD download! idk what wrong w the app but it’s so annoying! it will say “Waiting...” for like 20 mins before i decide to tap on it to see if that does anything. it says “Loading...” and it installs A CRACK! then it literally stays like that forever! i decided to let it go over night, and when i woke not too long ago, IT HAD DISAPPEARED! not only did it not install any more AT ALL, but it had DELETED ITSELF. this makes me so angry bc i literally just want to make a video, and it not even installing! it’s never had problems like this b4. Apple, pls fix this!
Pretty good
by Ihvuyvgu on 2020/01/12 18:40
This is a really good app but it would be nicer if we could make longer videos because what’s the point if it’s supposed to be a movie, and it isn’t even an hour long? Like I feel like this app might need to be updated, just saying. Otherwise, it’s really fun. But the problem is that when you make a lot of videos and you don’t delete them, then it’ll say that your storage is full. Like that doesn’t really make sense to me. And it’s really expensive to buy storage. Also the trailers, the trailers I feel like are just silly. Because basically all you do is take a bunch of photos and videos and then when your done, you can’t really do much to edit which is disappointing. Maybe make some improvements for the trailers. Also the background changes are kinda boring when you use them a lot. So maybe it could be like a beach, a forest, or even a place to eat! That would be great if that happened.

today I was editing a gotcha edit for a music video and in the middle of me making it it had a new update for every pic is small on the timeline and it takes me 100 tries to get it to the right links to match the music I tried reloading I tried deleting and re-downloading the app 1 million times I just want the old iMovie back I won hundred percent do not recommend this anymore, A couple minutes ago it was my favorite app to use now it is my least favorite please fix this, also I need a movie that took me forever to do and then I watched it and loved it! A couple days later I figured iMovie doesn't need my photos anymore so I deleted all the photos that it took a little bit later I wanted to show my friend when she was over, but a message popped up saying that I couldn't watch it because of the pictures missing that's the stupidest thing ever! I movie please get your stuff together!!! Sidenote, I love that you guys are always advancing your stuff with new updates, but it can get annoying. When I finally catch up and figure out how to work one update a new one comes in! Talk about inconvenience!!
I like it but there are some problems
by SammyLFK on 2018/10/22 23:42
I really like iMovie but whenever I try to watch A movie I made it says downloading video!! I get that you need to download the videos but then I have it months to download but it still says downloading!! I don’t understand why it doesn’t download! Another problem is that I wish that whenever we made a trailer there wasn’t music because whenever I put a video with dialogue in the trailer you don’t heat the speaking. But I also sometimes want to have music so I think it would be cool to be able to control how loud the music is and if it has music at all. One last thing I don’t even know what the theater thing is because I have never seen it! Either it doesn’t have anything on it for me or it just takes to long to load and I don’t have the patience to wait for it. I would try to fix that. Also I have an iPod touch if you want to know. I hope you add these to the app! SammyLFK
Pretty Good

I enjoy iMovie a lot because I love making videos, just random videos. If you’re looking for something professional, iMovie is not for you. But something to make quick videos, this works. It has a decent amount of features, enough for me! Some people don’t like the lack of features but that’s only if you’re trying to make something advanced. I love how easy it is to use and I think that’s part of the reason I’ve never looked into a good video editor. This is easy to use even for dummies like me. The only thing that I hate is that once you delete scenes within your video from your camera roll, you can’t watch it. I understand that you wouldn’t be able to edit the video once the scenes are deleted, but it should be easy to just watch what we have. There are so many times I have videos that I can’t watch, in iMovie. Bummer. But other than that I recommend iMovie for beginner editors!!
Why!
by Pretty Ballerina ❤️💜 on 2018/05/27 12:56
This app is really fun app you can combine videos you can make movies trailers it’s very cool. But one of the things I absolutely HATE about this app is that if you delete one of your movies or if you have one on there it goes to your photos it go to your picture library and I don’t have enough storage to be keeping all my videos that should’ve been on iMovie in my photo storage! So I was wondering if you delete or make a video in the next update you can make it not go to our picture library because it’s a waste of time and storage because the videos aren’t together they are separate videos, Which doesn’t make it very fun at all! Sorry if I’m yelling so much. I just don’t want a lot of pictures and videos that should’ve only stayed on this app instead of my photo library. So please consider this in your next update please & thank you. 🤟🏻👋😍😁
This is the best option of doing videos
by -Genevieve F.L on 2018/10/14 22:24
I use this for videos and it works well it makes great things like moving the screen and you can make music and sound affects personally the sound affects it gets annoying once you click it a thousand times if you have a family like me I annoy them all the time and they would get really mad 😂 I love the affect where you can zoom in and it starts like that and when you have the music playing while the sound affects are going on although you can’t put any other music on either because they don’t have it or you can’t do it I just got the app so I’m clueless😐 I love the app so far! It is a very good app because you can add anything you want! But I only use it for videos and also if you want to make it black and white on one part but the whole thing turns black and white it’s an issue but I rated it 5 stars because it is a very good app!
Would like to say I like it
by Sp73731 on 2018/04/29 01:12
I started out loving IMovie. It was great. I made some videos, trailers, then I started doing more complicated videos that takes weeks to do. Videos timed to music. And I can’t begin to explain what goes through your mind when something you’ve spent weeks on becomes garbage. The app glitches over and over. This has been a recurring issue over a few years, and has destroyed multiple videos for me, and my sister. I can see I’m not the first to write a review about constant glitches with audio moving by itself, clips lengthening and shortening on its own, and switching back when you try to fix it. This isn’t a new problem and it’s frustrating apple hasn’t fixed it, especially considering the amount of people complaining about it, and the lengthy amount of time this has been happening. You better fix it apple, because people will stop using this app they have to be paranoid their video is going to be ruined. The only solution we can work with is consistently saving the video, which takes a crap ton of space. Just a heads up apple😑
Close but no dice😑
by Laidiecloth on 2020/06/27 23:50
This app! So many great things, AND just as many complaints. Grab a chair, cause you’re gonna be here a while. °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° 1. Lags. I make a LOT of Gachas (this makes no sense if you don’t know what that is😂) and most of them about 30 minutes (more like ten...) so once I pass five minute, the rage kicks me in the face. I would just finish extending or ending a clip and then it would kick me out without a warning. This is really frustrating because it happens often. Really hope that is fixed☺️... °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° 2. Green screen discoloration So I would be adding a green screen to something, and there would be a color like black around the rims. You would think it would be fine, but then my whole thing turn a weird shade of, green...brown..gray? I really hope that it would stop happening. Maybe it’s just me though😞..... °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° 3. Sound Effects. To be honest, the sound effects sound fine. My problem is how limited the sound effects are. There is no heart beat, and the footsteps only walk on dirt. There is no car crash, no eating, no plane taking off, no..I’ll just stop now. °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° Thank you for listening to me whine. Since you listen to me, it would also help if you actually made the changes😓. Thank you!☺️
Not working well. But read...
by Lando_pool on 2019/10/25 23:34
So I’m trying to make a slowed video of my friend. In order to do that, you must press the clip you are trying to edit and then you press the speedometer logo. Well I did so and went to slow it down, once done it brought a new clip up and wouldn’t even slow down. I tried with a different clip and it would do the same thing. I got pretty frustrated so I tried some other things and it would just skip to another part in my video or pop up another clip that I didn’t need. I tried closing the app and the app it’s self and it wrecked my video that I’ve been working on for 3 hours and nothing will come up. I’ve been using IMovie scents I was about 9-10 and I’m 13 now. I’m very disappointed and I wish it didn’t happen, i have a thought in my head to go try again but I don’t want to risk it waisting my time again so I will most likely hop on the computer and edit from there. It’s a good app in all but I’m disappointed about this....
iMovie suggestion
by Karen “Mom" on 2018/11/06 17:35
iMovie is really handy for me to use on my iPad. I make stop motions in another app, and then import them over and add music and sound effects. But I would really like and appreciate it if you guys added a way to add some visual effects. I know you can do it on the computer version, but I’d really like to be able to add pre keyed effects, or be able to key effects. Or maybe add some default pre keyed effects to the app itself, and add different themed effects packs we could download. Similar to how GarageBand has downloadable packs with different sounds and instruments. I’d really appreciate it if you guys were able to do something like that. Thanks. Also, you guys seriously need to fix the issue where the app doesn’t export a movie. For me, it’s usually if my movie has too many freezes, cuts, or sound effects. I know a wide range of people have also experienced this issue, and it really makes relying on the app to make a video difficult.
very sad :(
by Kaykay615 on 2019/05/20 23:45
i’ll just start off with saying i’m only a few days away from finishing freshman year. so i made a plan to make a “vlog” every last few days of every year of high school, for the memories. so i made my freshman one today, recorded all day, edited all day and i got home and i was about to show my mom...but first i wanted to show my friends so i was going to save it to my camera roll to send to them. i didn’t have enough storage so i went through my camera roll and deleted all the clips that were in the vlog. went back to the app and clicked save to camera roll and guess what, “cant save because clips used were deleted.” i cried and cried, i don’t know why i guess i’m stressed because of finals but that’s still sad. i wanted memories of my last days of freshman year and now they’re gone forever. most of my friends that were in the video, today was their last day and i won’t be seeing them for a while...i just assumed that when i transfer my videos to the app it would be ON THE APP. very disappointed and sad...but there’s nothing you guys can do now.

THIS IS MY FAV APP I USE IT EVERY DAY SO YA OK
Takes up a lot of space 😡

This takes a lot of space on my iPad I kept deleting apps and pictures it’s annoying!
Green Screen

I love the app and everything about it, but the Green Screen should be able to move it around for green screen fix, just a thought.👍
Garbage
by Howard153 on 2020/07/15 23:29
It’s okay for very basic edits, like putting two videos together, but beyond that it is EXTREMELY glitchy and a pain to try to actually edit on. I split video clips to add text at specific times, and IMovie thinks it’s a good idea to duplicate frames randomly when I do this? I’ll be editing the length of a certain AUDIO clip, and then the video length ends up changing for no understandable reason, and frames end up getting repeated in the video split and ruining the video. Why? Who decided that would be a good idea? Stupidest app I have ever used, trying to make a single small adjustment like replacing an audio clip ruins the entire video sync, and you’ll be better off starting from scratch. I’ve put at least 6 hours into trying to edit a basic 10 minute video, and 5 of those hours come from iMovie randomly changing video lengths and adding frames and throwing audio off sync for every tiny change I make. I would give this negative stars if I could. It drives me insane. Long story short, DO NOT use this app, unless you are doing something very very simple. It is not worth the frustration and you would save so much time using literally any other app.
My Montage Got Deleted
by Craig's Craig with Craig on 2020/07/15 20:13
I was working really hard in a montage for fortnite earlier and I went back on if and the montage was gone, I worked really hard on it and it just got deleted so now so have to start over. is there anyway you can get the file back?
⚠️DO NOT GET THIS APP⚠️
by hahshajabab on 2020/07/15 19:22
I used to love iMovie. However, once I started to take editing seriously, the app failed me. I would work long and hard on editing a project and then the app would ERASE all my work. The part where it shows my videos is black. I cannot play the video nor edit it anymore. There was one time when I somehow managed to save the edits I made, but nine out of ten times I’ve lost my work. If I could give it zero stars I would. I’m warning people now, do not get this app. There are many times I have wanted to write a review about this app, and how it takes away all your hard work, but most recently I went on a trip, and took videos there and started to edit them. Just now, today, I was editing it, and the screen went black where it shows my video. I couldn’t save my edits and hard work. And I can’t retake those videos. The only other option was to start all over and take hours and hours to do it. I did not have the time. But today, when I was editing it and the screen went black, I decided to write a review because I was fed up with it taking my hard work. In conclusion, this app is not a good choice if you are really trying to edit well.
AMAZING ✨💕

AMAZING✨💕
Great App, but needs an upgrade
by JESSICA HOCKETT on 2020/07/15 15:40
This app is amazing. My kids love to use it, and so do I. With its easy to use controls, and with a simple push of a “ button”, you can create a very convincing trailer or movie. But like others have said, it often times glitches and/or deletes work. Also, the app should have more options to work with. The app recently (as of 7/14/2020) got a music update, which allows you to choose more music. Again, maybe more choices with that too. Keep up the good work guys!
It’s ok
by noname readers on 2020/07/15 15:24
It’s pretty good for editing my YouTube channel!
I love this

Was good
by neon,tetra on 2020/07/15 12:54
Was great but then it took to long to download the videos I used in the movie
Do you not get it
by unicquinn on 2020/07/15 10:41
It’s a really really stressful app because when you’re trying to edit it keeps leading you back to the beginning and it’s really really annoying like really annoying. And then it gets you in a mood just don’t get it it’s really really really not worth it by rolling my eyes
I can’t even get it or play it!
by bearʕ•ᴥ•ʔ on 2020/07/15 10:29
Its a great app but once i tried to make my gacha videos and it would not let me on it. I tried and tried but nothing worked. So whatbdo i use now! But also you nedd to fix the moving screens. I am very angry so
help!!!!
by my edit acc is @intimidatedits on 2020/07/15 06:13
ok so i love this app, i’ve been using it for a long time but almost everytime i try and save the video, it won’t work. it always says “sorry, an error occurred during the export.” and it makes me SO MAD because it happens almost everytime. i’ve been working on this thing for MONTHS. and for everything to be wasted is really sucky. so fix this. please!!!!
I like it

Great movie editor, but I think there could be more...
by DonutDude133 on 2020/07/14 20:29
This is absolutely an amazing video editor! There are so many different editing tools like filters, cropping, volume control, etc. but I think there could be more to this. This is my opinion, but I think that they should add tracking. By this I mean you can take a title or a special effect and place it into your video, then use this tracking tool to make that title or special effect follow something in the video like a lamppost so that as the camera moves, it looks as though that title or special effect was holding still relative to the lamppost. That would be an amazing addition! This doesn’t have to be added, and some people may not want it to be added since iMovie’s simplicity is another factor why it’s such a great video editor. All in all, these are my thoughts.
By far the best on iOS
by Lego guy155 on 2020/07/14 20:11
So I have used many video editing apps and only 2 have come close to this, and the problem is that, cute cut and video toolbox require micro transactions to remove the watermark. Thankfully iMovie is 100% free. And plus I just found out that if you record videos in 60fps like me, you can export it in the same frame rate which I LOVE! All in all extremely good, but please make it so you can move text to wherever you want in the video, and even use text/emojis to cover stuff up manually.
Jacked up all of my audio
by The Awesome Tag on 2020/07/14 20:01
I was making a vid and my audios for the vid got jacked up and placed randomly. FIX THIS NOW! I SPENT OVER 3 hours editing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
AMAZING! But with a few updates it could be perfect!
by #greatest game ever1 on 2020/07/14 19:58
I have had iMovie for quite a while now, and it is my go-to movie making app! It has proven time after time that the app is quite functional! I am not a great edition myself and I love having the basic editing software that can cater to my editing level. iMovie is definitely one of the best editing apps I have ever used. iMovie could be better if the layout was a little more carefully laid out. But overall I would 100% reccomend!
Well
by pen the nice on 2020/07/14 17:39
Well I downloaded the app and it was good... but now it just goes to my photo library 📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱
This app if awesome for editing!
by Meow West on 2020/07/14 13:42
I can edit my YouTube videos with this and I recommend this app but I have one question when are we gonna be able to move texts I can’t move I can only put them in the center and bottom left corner
long, 4k video... BAD IDEA
by Qkey24 on 2020/07/14 07:50
you can make a lot of your scene of video, then combine up on PC... dificult. but this app are AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
great!!
by hijksjsskks on 2020/07/14 02:36
i love this app, but it would be AMAZING if you could add a blur feature!! other than that, the app is amazing :)
It’s better than the app I used to use edit my videos on YouTube
by rycbrycbrucrtxgedkeddye on 2020/07/13 23:13
A long long time ago I I was using this very very very bad app that didn’t wasn’t really that good editing videos for YouTube until I found an iMovie and now I am so glad and I’ve learned how to make intros and I’ve learned how to do green screen so much fun 👍🏾
iMovie Needs A Fix
by LamoKai11 on 2020/07/13 22:50
I Don’t Know If Anyone Else Has Encountered This But Sometimes If You Add A VoiceOver To Your Movie It Will MOVE The VoiceOver To Another Spot Witch I Don’t Like. One Time, I Was Making A YouTube Video (i make/edit my videos on iMovie) And It Took Longer Than An Hour To Make. Until I Realized, That All Of My Voice Overs Were MOVED. So Guess What? I Had To RESTART My WHOLE VIDEO Editing On ANOTHER Editing App.
Good but terrible
by Kyndal_spen_spen on 2020/07/13 22:45
It’s a good easy app but things need changes first you can change your text color or your font and you can’t move the text were you want it to you can’t reverse you have a little bit of titles but on the Mac version it has a bunch of titles this one of the worst I’ve seen there’s so much you can do on iMovie Mac the iOS no one want to buy a 1000 dollar Mac book just to do editing
Love this app, pretty slow though...
by 💕Holly💕 on 2020/07/13 22:34
So ive had this app on every iphone ive had since i was in 6th grade. This app is super fun and easy to make videos on. Its not too confusing and is also free which is also a plus. The only reason i gave this app 3 stars instead of 4 or 5 is because on every phone ive had with this app, it has always been pretty slow so it cant just be me. I hope this was a helpful enough review of this app
It Refuses To Save My Edits
by Avery._.Treff on 2020/07/13 19:35
So I never leave reviews, but I know that iMovie has potential so I want this to be heard. So my sister and I love filming short videos for fun, but when we made this one, it saved all of our edits. But, when we went to watch it the next morning and to show our friends, everything was ruined! All of my edits were gone and all of the voice over clips we used were in random places. I’ve tried this so many times, and I really hope this can be resolved. I do t know if it is just me, but if you downloaded the app and it works great, than that’s great, but it has never worked properly for me. :(
Needs changes
by Flipmykitty606 on 2020/07/13 19:23
1. iMovie freezes and NEVER lets me delete videos 😤 2. You have to keep videos in camera roll in order to watch your videos, but videos take up sooooo much space 😭 3. Not great songs to choose from and many sound effects I want to use are not on iMovie 4. Anyway, it’s a good app to use, just needs changes...

Can’t make a photo shorter
by Gaming With_Karina on 2020/07/13 14:42
Amazing! But the one thing that makes me use other apps is that, you can’t make a photo smaller. Which kinda bothers me to use another app but other than that I think it’s a pretty good app! I’d recommend it!

I love to edit with it
Top shelf video editor
by skater app is better on 2020/07/13 12:00
I've used imovie for about 4 years now and its been great. From the addition to green/blue screen, to the easy to navigate ui. One feature i personally feel would make this program unrivaled would be the ability to apply the ken burns effect to video clips as well as photos. Although I'm on an iPhone 7 and probably couldn't access such a feature. I still believe it would be great to see implemented
Great but sad
by i cant use anynick on 2020/07/13 06:20
Was mad to find out that I can’t use it anymore because I have a iPod touch and can’t update to what iMovie requires, it really is a great app and highly recommend it...if you can download it. It is very good and easy to learn but can easily be mastered to make Beautiful videos. It really isn’t confusing and really amazing.
Best app ever
by hdjehyshejnshjens on 2020/07/13 05:48

Great but it breaks
by PickleMadness on 2020/07/13 03:41
IMovie is a really great app and I’ve been using it for a couple of years for my YouTube videos(@ TheGonzGirlz if you want to see). It does have a few issues, though. It’s constantly crashing, making my project go black and unable to edit. It also freezes, but not to often. One thing I would recommend is using a different app for the text. It looks very generic and it can be very transparent at times. I started using Autodesk sketchbook to download the text to IMovie and it works well. Overallsit’s great and I can edit my videos and upload to YouTube.
Wow
by Gram Fam on 2020/07/13 00:49
That’s amazing uses I movie and yeah... idk Kid magic uses adobe premiere which is not that much better I movie is for pros

So when I first got my iPad I wanted a movie making app. Then I went on the App Store 🏬 and looked for a movie making app. Every movie making app but you had to by it! Then I found iMovie I downloaded it for free. Then I went on the app and had everything thanks 😊 apple 🍎.
complaint
by xxxavier858 on 2020/07/12 21:18
i movie has been acting up i’ve been using it for a very long time and i’ll be eating and it will just go black and i can’t do anything can’t play it or anything
Blur tool request
by SarahAnn1986 on 2020/07/12 19:16
Absolutely love this editor, it’s the only editor I use. My only complaint is I wish there was a blur tool, more effects would be cool but it’s great for a beginner and has the bare minute for options which is great if you’re just learning how to edit. I try to be courteous and not film other people but sometimes it inadvertently happens and I always have to add a picture in picture which distracts from my main objective....basically I really wish there was a blur tool.
This is the worst video editing app I have ever used.
by GHAYZLETT on 2020/07/12 17:58
iMovie can do a lot of things, but when it comes to even the slightest amount of intensity, the entire app shuts down. iMovie randomly deletes my videos, music, etc. and then crashes after I try to put them back. I have had to restart countless project that I have worked hours on just to get half of what I originally wanted. Every time I try to save a video, the video is bad quality, slower, and the background music/audio is off beat. I would absolutely love to see iMovie function properly, but until then, I hate iMovie with a burning desire.
It’s ok needs work
by IsaacDoesIt YT on 2020/07/12 16:25
I love the text feature but it’s on the screen for the whole clip and what if you don’t want to cut the clip to rid the text you should add a time for how long the text is on the screen
Good I guess
by PuppyLoverForever9 on 2020/07/12 15:24
I mean I just HATE that when you make the movie.. the screen moves. WHYYYYYY 😒
It’s amazing!!!!
by I movie rules on 2020/07/12 15:09

Poor.
by Giddbjhd on 2020/07/12 02:33
Can’t split. The layout is hard to use for beginners. Poorly designed app when it’s supposed to be simple.
One suggestion
by StupidLittleBunnyChild on 2020/07/11 22:39
I love IMovie so much. I always make videos on it for friends! But I was wondering if y’all could add a feature where is shows the full photo without ken burns affect. The ken burns affect is super annoying. I also think you guys should add different colors of texts and different fonts. Thats all, <3
Some glitches
by joecamelblue on 2020/07/11 19:53
I do stop motions and edit it on iMovie. I love it. But there is this glitch where sometimes from a new clip to a new clip, there is a black screen for like 1 second in between and because of that, all my sound effects got played earlier than before. It is so frustrating considering that it takes 5 days for a stop motion and another 1 days for the sound effects/music. Also there is a delay in the sound effect s that I put in. It is so frustrating
Timer
by Puzzlehub on 2020/07/11 19:27
Timeline needs a timer. Could you add an easy audio sync feature?
Amazing app

Best Editing app

Over all this app is great but I can’t add a text in my video for a split second but I really think they need to fix this but other then that this app is great!😀
Sound editor
by bababindy on 2020/07/11 00:21
I was exciting to have this app and I realized it does not have enough sound editing features like noise reduction and HD equalizer. I hope adobe come up with better version which at least be worth money.
Not worth the headache
by WalkingThroughThePainSeth on 2020/07/10 23:34
Don’t understand why the sound gets thrown out of sync with the video during the edit process. Too much of a headache for me to deal with. Worked 2 days on a 13 minute video only to be shown my time and energy have been completely wasted. Still....when I cannot edit a video together without having the voice sync.... quite frustrating. So....I’m gonna post the glitchy video on my channel and show everyone what they get with using this app. And how they shouldn’t waste a moment of their time by even bothering to download

I love iMovie

Great Software, Glaring issue
by GammaGomma on 2020/07/09 21:51
iMovie Has been great for me, as I recently got into editing. A flaw here is that my footage keeps on corrupting at random. Like, I’m working on a video, and at a random point I can’t do anything, and everything is black when I go back into the software. Why is that?
Love it.
by Kadiaka on 2020/07/09 20:33
When I first started making Youtube videos my friend recommended this app. I tried it out and its great! I learned how to use it, plus there’s no watermark! Since I’m on a phone I use the zoom tool which is amazing!! Love it 😊
This app is the worst app ever

by Anix for president on 2020/07/09 05:25
This app is very useful! I look forward to using it very often as I have been waiting for my iPhone to update to this. There’s one thing that I highly dislike about this app. Even if u have an iPhone X like I do, it isn’t very helpful when you have a newer phone and this app still doesn’t take it. After all I highy suggest this app for others ;)
Great but one problem.
by xXiiEZiiXx on 2020/07/09 04:25
When I use this and edit my Roblox video and my intro, the video gets stuck and is probably lagging. Is there a way to fix this?

Me gusta la app por que hace que la edición de videos sea fácil, pero te cierra la app cuando quieres editar un video. Y eso no me gusta 👎
I LOVE THIS APP
by Mya duran on 2020/07/08 22:03

It went from Bad to Worse
by alessnwonderland on 2020/07/08 21:54
iMovie was having issues exporting movies so I updated it & now it locks up & crashes my computer. YAYYYYY! *sarcastically throws confetti in the air* Wonderful!
Super neat
by GoodRaperFungril on 2020/07/08 16:45
I like this app because it is super cool and I love making the movies there is no bad things about this app. 😁

IT IS GREAT!
This is not a good choice.
by Langdonoid Hangonoid on 2020/07/08 15:08
iMovie is completely bugged out. 1. It says you can’t upload a video because the video is deleted from your photos when it’s not 2. You can’t choose what frame by frame you want 3. You can’t watch the video if clips are deleted or it’s bugged out 4. I screen record a video and put it as my audio but it says I can’t because the clip is deleted from my photos as I screen recorded it 5. You can’t add any sound you want 6. If you accidentally deleted something or did something wrong you can’t go back so just watch out for that 7. This app needs bug fixing
Exports don’t work half the time
by KelseyKaitlin on 2020/07/08 04:52
This app is trash. I cannot tell you how many times I have worked on a project only for the clip to not export to my iPad or iPhone. Why is it that the app that is MADE to be compatible with my phone and iPad doesn’t even seem compatible with my phone and iPad? Literally so frustrating to work on a project all day and then it won’t export to my camera roll, or anywhere else for that matter, for me to upload it.
Great App!
by Rena Elmer on 2020/07/08 00:38
I honestly think this is a great app! I’ve had this app for almost 2 years now, and it’s never messed it never turned my screen black or even glitched for me. Overall, there are many video
Almost perfect, almost!
by ResSil151 on 2020/05/05 08:44
So. It’s very rare that I leave a review on apps, but this one deserves it. I have been having an absolute blast with this, especially since I’ve really gotten into drone photography and it’s the perfect tool to make for video editing. My favorite feature honestly is making the movie trailers, it’s so fun with a compilation of media. The ONLY issue I have with it is that I’d love more freedom. Once you pick the general theme it predetermines what you can do. It boxes you into a certain amount of clips per section and has a variety of different kinds that you cant control whatsoever. So for example. One section in the trailer would have 3 slots for clips. The first one would be a .9 second, the next one would be a 3 second closeup (which is very annoying since it zooms way in on the picture or video and there’s nothing you can do to adjust it or stop it.) so if it’s a video it could focus in and cut out what you actually want to show in the clip which makes it impossible to use a lot of media. The third one could be 1.5 seconds. The fact that you can’t change the number of possible clips in a section and that you can’t change the duration of any of the clips is very frustrating. But beyond that this is an AMAZING app that I will love using for a long time, definitely worth having to be more strategic on what media I place where.
Great, But Here is a Suggestion
by QwQ GamerGirl on 2020/06/28 15:29
Yes, iMovie is a great movie and trailer or film maker, you can make retro trailers/films/movies, romance, teens, family, fairy tale, swashbuckler, expedition, superhero, scary, coming of age, indie, Bollywood, adrenaline, and narrative movies films or trailers. I know, a lot of options 😅. But... There should be an option where you can change the music and where you can have the images and videos you took on iMovie only be stored in the movies on your app, not the gallery. It is a huge waste of space for your device, especially if you make lots of movies/trailers like me. I wish you could make the trailers longer than a minute, and can make it 1-4 minutes at least for trailers. When making a trailer, you can’t hear any talking or sounds just music. Maybe still keep the music, because that is still cool, but make there a setting where you can turn off music and can hear talking and sounds. Still a very great app I recommend, but I am just hoping for an update that will change that and further experience in the update. I hope this is good enough to explain the change I’d be grateful for and to explain to others who might download this app. Please make this change though, if not, it’s fine but thx anyways ☺️
Great & Useful, But A Few Problems
by Baugher2010 on 2020/03/25 17:32
This app is actually really functional to be honest. I’ve been using it for a long time now, and it’s very helpful to me & other peers. ——————————————————————————— Unfortunately, there have been problems with the app. The lag is something I’ve experienced, however, I have to confess that this may only happen when the clip has become very large\long, but it can mostly restart the app itself if its gotten that bad. —————————————————————————————— Here’s another problem that’s been happening lately. This may sound strange, but most of the time my “hard working” clips have been deleted automatically, but this has nothing to do with me deleting any photos or videos in my Album. However, sometimes it can actually delete half of the clip that I made\others that have experienced it. I have nothing to infer over this situation. —————————————————————————————— Another small issue is the freezing. Now that’s something I & everyone else can understand while reading this. So expect freezing on a huge app that takes up tons of space. —————————————————————————————— I hope this review really lets you know that your app is amazing 🍎! ‘Thanks, hope to get a reply from you guys!
How dare people put up bad reviews if they haven’t even tried all the features yet!!
by xxoeumm on 2020/06/15 01:05
People are putting up bad reviews because they don’t know how to use it properly. I have used lots of movie makers and this one is the best. You can do everything in it. I think maybe if you explained all the features properly, then people would know how to use it. I just hate one thing about it. You can’t export longer movies. If your movie is longer than 1 minute, the sound quality becomes terrible. This app also takes up a lot of space. You cannot store your movies in iMovie. If you delete any content in the movie from your photo library, it automatically gets deleted from your movie. It is also a terrible green screen app. It makes these weird lines come when you use the feature and looks unrealistic. I wish that iMovie theater was still supported. I also hope that in the next version you can pick out backgrounds from a background selector in iMovie. This app is way better than veescope live. It is accessible and easy. And it works. It just needs a few more features. I also hope that in the future, users won’t have to record their videos in front of green screens to change the background. But that is too much to ask. So for now, this app is pretty much perfect.
I’ve only seen 1080P results on an iPhone 8
by FOFS on 2019/12/05 22:54
As far as I can tell, iMovie works great. I had to do some overlay stuff (PIP) which required me to look up instructions for that online, and I learned a lot about other more “advanced” features as well. Once, during many, many edits of a short video, it did seem to stop working, so I just restarted it. I’m looking forward to adding my own music next to see how that works. It’s super easy once you get the hang of it after searching specific online instructions. I mean, skip the basic feature instructions, they are already very straightforward and more or less intuitive. And what a bargain it is!👍 Meanwhile, those other video editing apps might not even have the some of the features you want, except maybe for an extra charge, and/or vampirize your wallet with regular subscription fees, charge $90 for a one time fee, and end up having you in fetal position shaking like a leaf in a corner somewhere wondering how you, at least temporarily, lost that full, unlocked app you already paid a much better price for that went to a $ubscription plan. If this app crashes on your phone or iPad, I don’t have anything supercalifragilistic to say about that. So far, I have no complaints in that department whatsoever.
LOVE IT
by happy panacorn on 2020/05/15 22:41
This....is......the......best......editing......software.....I’ve....ever....use. Other editing apps make everything over complicated by making it look all “professional” or “easy”. Some apps make it so you can’t find anything and you have to enter all these strange unhelpful commands while others all you can do is plop the video in, put in a filter, and maybe add some random sounds. But this app is so good! You can do so much with it, it’s super easy, AND if you are willing to spice things up you can put it into pro mode where you can do even more! It’s even better because IT HAS A FRICKING UNDO BUTTON! It’s so helpful if you made a big mistake and you don’t want to have to do it all over again! It also has so many transitions that are so fun to play with along with the funny and awesome sound effects (my favorite it the time travel one) the only thing I have to complained about is that the default transition is fade and so I have to go through my entire video and put it to the standard one witch really annoys me I would also like a *BLEEP* sound effect because it’s so good for humor and if someone says...something... but other than that it’s so good and I don’t understand why it’s only rated 3.9 stars WHEN IT CLEARLY DESERVES A 4.5! soooo yea that’s all I have to say!
Great possibilities, major flaws
by P. Jones Moody on 2020/06/11 16:44
I’m an amateur when it comes to video production, having taken a few undergraduate courses in Final Cut and studio production in the early 2000s. I love having the basic editing options available in iMovie, especially now on iPad Pro. Generally, it all works very well, but there are some oversights that really need to be remedied in order for this to be a full-featured “first party” app worth long-term investment. 1) Memory usage, especially when “editing down” to share the final product. Multiple times, when attempting to share ~30-minute 1080 HD projects to my photo library, I have run into issues with the app telling me there is not enough memory to share the project. And that is with 200GB of device memory available (as shown in Settings), after deleting all unnecessary apps, downloaded feature films, and the like. My remedy: every time I start a new project, I delete all existing projects in the iMovie app, then delete the iMovie app itself, then reboot the iPad, then re-download the app, and then begin the project. This has been the only way to remedy the memory issues. 2) Audio/Video synchronization and waveform inconsistencies. Sometimes when editing clips, the audio waveform jumps ahead or behind, although the audio itself *sounds correct* while still editing. Sometimes, after the final mix-down and sharing, certain clips have audio that is shifted ahead or behind the video by a significant margin.
Brilliant app to use!
by Sunnyland1097 on 2020/04/17 03:42
This app is awesome to be honest cause it helps you know some technology skills for editing and this helps me a lot when I wanna do some gacha mini movies! But there is a problem though, So when I try to post the photo into the imovie, It just lags and glitches. I don’t mean to tell you that you should fix it. It could be the problem of my connection. I use this app for when I feel like doing a gacha movie. I chosen imovie to be a good editing app because (this is my opinion) you can add really cool music! My fav is O.P.E.N because some of these music don’t have the lyrics but for me, I like music with lyrics but sometimes I don’t but anyways, I also like the way there is beautiful effects so when you wanna be in a good photo you can use imovie to add in an effect! For the people reading this and disagreeing, This is MY opinion I don’t mean to give hate for the developer that did not remove the lag or certain types of problem! It could probably be my connection.
Not as great as I remember
by juststankylegandmoveon on 2020/05/20 01:53
When I started using iMovie as an beginner’s tool a couple years back, it was very easy to use and understand. Every video I made came out exactly as I edited it, and I could do it for hours on end with no issues. Now, I have moved on to other softwares as I’ve improved, but I came back to this one to use as a base for my more simple clips and audios; plus I already knew how to use it and expected it to be just as easy as I remembered. But, coming back, I notice how it keeps crashing, whether it is a sudden black screen that forces me back to my home screen a second later, or even glitches within the app. For instance, I tried changing the volume of an audio by selecting it—and it split it where I had selected it?? It may sound like a small bug, but it gets very frustrating when it happens over and over again and I have to undo it. It was never like that before. Same issue with clips, sometimes it won’t even let me select one I want to crop or slow down, etc. It forces me to leave the project, the app itself, sometimes even to the point of turning my phone off just to get it running again—just to get it to crash again. I really hope you guys find this and fix even the small issues, iMovie was so brilliant before.
Glitches from iOS 12.3.1 update
by RannyPanny on 2019/07/10 23:19
Please, Please, Please Fix! I only use iMovie and usually love it...however, Since the latest update for my iPad that includes green screen there are a variety of issues making the app difficult to use....I feel very inconvenienced after having to start again and edit an hour long movie three times! Lagging start and editing, Greyed out clips and a black preview screen, glitches....overlays blacked out, some clips fine some blacked out, also after adding new clips to the edit when I press to play the movie it says it’s “downloading from iCloud” but it never does. I have iCloud Photo Library option on “Keep Originals”, and the iCloud option for iMovie off, yet it still tries to download from it. I even signed out of my device and but it gives the same message. If all the clips used in the project are in full resolution on my iPad, I signed out of iCloud AND I had the setting on “keep originals” why is it still trying to download from this cloud?. The other perfectly fine clips also glitch and sometimes say the same message. All the clips ultimately alternate from being fine to acting out and being blacked out and glitching. Movie taking forever to load or freezing..have tried troubleshooting by restarting the movie from scratch...Same thing happening since update.
Great but I have a big problem
by Werty536743 on 2020/04/21 00:59
I’m a youtuber my channel is NINJAZOMBIESLAYER I’ve been using this sense the start of my channel and my problems with it is that when I transport a video to my photos and then try to delete it from the imovies it takes a long time to delete I also am never able to delete some videos which forces me to delete and reinstall the app which I’ve done many times the reason this is a big problem is that if I can’t delete the vid from imovies and have the vid transferred to the photos is then I have a duplicated vid taking up lots of storage if I made a 30 min vid and transported it and can’t delete it from the imovies I then have 1 hour worth of video storage which is 5 to 10 GB which doesn’t only effect me but you the developers of this app because people like my sis who only have 5 GB will never be able to use this app which lowers the amount of downloads of your app and it effects us by taking up our storage which forces us to upgrade storage just for this app.
Absolutely love this
by SoccerPro⚽️ on 2020/05/09 19:45
I’ve had iMovie for about 3-4 years now. If I could, I would give it 50,000 stars. I know there’s lots of video making apps out there, but I love this one. Something cool is that it’s already included on apple products, so you know it has to be good. If this is to basic for you, it’s also included in other Apple devices such as a MacBook and MacBook Pro. There’s a little more detailed work you can do on that program. For me, iMovie has become the app I use for everything. You can seriously make anything on there. I’ve learned how to do so much on this app. It could be the kind of thing where I decide to go to the pool one day, and I realize that they’ve added something new there. I can instantly grab my phone and make a video with my friends about our fun day at the pool. Or, I could make something serious and add meaningful music to the background. My favorite thing to do is have characters in these videos. You can make mini movies and I highly recommend this app.
Garbage
by garrett_w314 on 2020/05/11 20:08
This is literally the worst possible program to use to do anything with video. Do you want to cut up video and make something cool? Don’t use iMovie. Do you want to manipulate audio to make something more interesting? Don’t use iMovie. Do you want to just have something to make a quick school project with that’s easy and does what you want? Don’t use iMovie. I can’t explain how horrible this app is. When you trim audio or video, don’t expect it to do what you think it will. It acts like it has a mind of its own, cutting to wherever it wants to, not to where you guide it. Trying to move sound around is a complete disaster, you have to try at least 3 times just to get the piece of sound where you want it- every time you have it placed where you want it, it just jumps away to its own spot that’s not near where you just had your finger. I am beyond frustrated just trying to put together a video for a school project. I literally took 5 minutes away from it to write this review out of pure hatred for this app. I could be working on it trying to work around it’s flaws, but this seems like a more efficient use of my time. Please just look elsewhere for video software this garbage isn’t worth a second of your time.
the app is starting to crash ..
by aly_loca on 2019/04/17 04:21
This app is extremely great. It it so great for comedy videos and vlogs and more. This is the one and only app I use because it’s the best..but, it’s been crashing lately all sudden..while I’m working on my video, it’ll turn the screen black and won’t let me see the video at all. also when I’m trying to split the video it wouldn’t show and when I tap on the clip it will take me back to the clip before. However, when I put sound affects into my clips, when it glitches or crashes, it will place the sound affects further back and not where I want it to be. I love this app but it gets me upset because I end up deleting my hard work project that I put effort in because of the crashes and how everything gets all over the place and messes the video up. I also tried saving my project before it gets worse instead of just deleting it but it told me “fail to export”. Please fix these issues because I don’t like dealing with this situation that kind of gets me upset and just wastes my time and so as other people. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Thanks you.
TRAILER MAKER IS SO FRUSTRATING
by gurlwhogives on 2019/10/29 23:57
This app is pretty good and has a decent movie maker, but it has some issues. I’m not getting an crashes but it does need more features. I think this app would be a lot better if it had some more trailer making options. You should have an option to make videos in the trailer maker have sound instead of just music. Also the music and backdrops and effects should be editable. It’s stupid that you can’t edit it. Also more genres would be funnier. It’s really difficult to get the right feel for the movie. And the thing I want the absolute most? I want the videos I film IN THE APP to stop going TO MY CAMERA. I’m a neat freak about my phone storage and I can’t film one thing without my storage getting all filled up with stupid mini shots and it’s SO LAME. It made me really mad especially because I always have to delete them so they don’t hog my storage! If these problems were fixed it would be totally perfect but it’s not which made me so sad because I can’t find any other apps with a decent trailer maker. Also one more thing the teen trailer maker is so hard to work with because of the random images in the backdrop not matching the text. SO ANNOYING! 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
It’s sad, really
by SprinkleMaster001 on 2019/04/07 21:19
First!!!! Let’s start with the pros. First, the quality is decent. It’s nice that you can make trailers and post them on facebook or whatever. When your making a movie you just record stuff from your camera and it turns into little clips when you insert it into iMovie. Cons. When you record a trailer or movie, it doesn’t let you delete stuff from your camera. First time I used it I made a trailer for a horror movie with my brother. I watched it and I was impressed. Since the clips of video were in my camera I deleted all of the little clips and figured that I could still watch my trailer. When I went to watch the the next day, a message appeared saying that there are missing films in my trailer and I can’t watch it. That was because I deleted the clips from my camera! That’s just plain stupid, because if you expect me to actually keep 10 minute videos on my iPhone along with over 20 little clips??? That’s the biggest waste of space ever! And don’t get me started on how much storage the app takes up itself! Unless you want all of your iCloud storage to be depleted in 3.5 seconds, I don’t recommend this app. 😡
Really disappointed.
by batwomayne on 2019/01/16 13:17
Really, for 5$ (at least it was when I bought it years ago) you'd think it'd be WAY less glitchy. No matter what I do, the same glitches seem to occur for me over the past years. I've been through three different phones, and it's a bummer because I can't find an app that is quite advanced as this one (is supposed to be). The worst thing about all of the glitches if I have to pick just one- is the audio problems. If I made a background clip MUTE, it should stay mute. Sometimes I will save a video to my phone and the entire audio will suddenly be in the background even though it wasn't there when I previewed it. Sometimes I get screechy noises on moments where I made a clip break. No matter what I do I can't seem to fix this or get it to save to my phone differently. It's really agitating seeing as how it's been years. Sigh. Please. This app has so much potential. (Edit) And now I’ll probably stop using it completely because suddenly I can’t use ANY music? What the *** is this?? I paid for this app and can’t use any music because it’s “protected”. I’m making this video for my own personal use. I should be able to use the music on my phone. This broke my heart. Thanks iMovie
How can a company take pride in something so awful
by skjsnendnx on 2020/05/14 05:28
This app used to be good but for some reason I can’t even make simple videos for school projects without having to struggle immensely for no reason. I read some of the other reviews and I’m glad I saw some regarding the issue with placement. You can’t place things on your own. For sample I tried to drag a audio clip to start at a certain point in the video. Every time I would try to place the audio bar in a certain place the app would automatically move it a couple centimeters ahead or behind. This makes it so frustrating to get good timing in my videos because of this stupid i don’t even know what it is. You guys make countless of updates but your staff seems to have inherited Stevie wonders vision because it actually seems like the bugs and glitches are getting worse. Of course I’m not expecting professional level editing for a free application, but if an app that apple proudly presents for their customers to use can barely place an audio bit correctly, than you guys need to start getting laser eye surgery and making some REAL changes and updates. Oh I’m sure you fixed the bugs just like your updates say. You don’t.
Needs HUGE debugging
by jackkiinnnweechan on 2020/05/11 10:57
I am an amateur gaming editor and I have been using this to improve my skills. I have also created memes out of it and it is an absolute blast using this app. I always love using it to create something entertaining. However, there are a lot of bugs that need fixing. One for example, is videos that I recently added have a tendency to not show up when I go to edit them. I spent an hour trying to port a clip from my camera roll to iMovie, cycling through different methods and jumping through tons of hoops just to be able to create a quick montage for a client. A gaming edit that shouldn’t have taken more than an hour or so took three hours because when I went to grab more clips from my camera roll, the same thing happened. This really needs to be fixed. This problem alone is enough to steer me towards uninstalling and using another editor. Other than that bug, it is an amazing app. It is extremely user friendly and easy to learn and I think everyone should play with it to make something nice. Please address this issue! 🙏🏻
PLEASE FIX THIS
by merry shakouri on 2020/05/01 20:59
I’m not even kidding I was working for hours on Editing my yt vid and I was finally done. I usually watch the whole thing to check if I didn’t everything right. Tell me why every single overlay I took 5 minutes to do each was early. Everything got messed up. I have to redo it now. I was crying for like 20 minutes straight. I’m not even kidding I’m SO MAD. I took time out of studying so I could finish this video. Then iMovie glitches and puts every single over lay that I spent a long time to be perfect, earlier than it should have been. This is not the first time. I’m not gonna keep wasting my time to do a video then this ends up happening. Please fix this problem. Cause I can’t handle it anymore. It’s 5:00 am rn I started editing at 10:00 pm. And everything is messed up. I am so furious. And sad. And every single bad emotion. Hello I’m editing this. The same thing happens again. I finished the video again and the same thing happened. I’m literally about to lose my mind. And I can’t update it then all my progress on other projects will be lost
Overall being ruined by many problems.
by Evan to the 87 practic on 2020/04/21 16:05
I’ve used this app for so long. Let’s face it, maybe a few years or 1? It was easy and compressed to used as you could add your own music to Movies at the time, and more. But whatever update it was, it ruined the app. A few days ago I was trying to edit a video I made, and when I recorded my voice over it? Everything had a stroke. My voice was delayed, the video ended too early, my voice cutoff the edge, the cuts didn’t match with the video. I thought, maybe that was a glitch, won’t happen today. So I go to edit a minecraft video, and take a guess what happens. Y’know, I really liked this app and still do a bit, but whatever update that made that.. it ruined it. So I deleted the app out of anger. Fix this or i’ll just give up on iMovie entirely. I had so much work put into it, and right as I get ready to add my voiceover, IT GLITCHES FOR THE 2ND FRICKING TIME. 3 stars, would give it 5 but the glitch ruined it. Fix. This. Also, if this helps, i’m on an iPad Pro. I don’t know much more, just I know i’m on an iPad Pro.
App won’t open
by imthecomputerguy on 2017/09/30 02:09
Okay, I’m just going to say that I love this app and I use It ALL the time. But, last night the video was about 20 minutes long and the app got SUPER Slow. It took hours to edit something that shouldn’t have. I’ve never had this problem before so I don’t know what’s wrong. this morning I was working on the project And got out of the app temporarily and tried to get back on and it won’t allow me to get back on since! I was really looking forward to making the finishing touches and showing my family but now I cannot. I thought it may have something to do with a storage problem so I got rid of 13 Gigs of storage and it STILL won’t open! I’ve restarted the app countless times, and restarted my phone and yet it still won’t let me open the app. Aaahhhggg help!! This is the first time I’ve had issues with the app. And I don’t want to loose all the hard work I’ve put into this and many other videos as well. Please help
⚠️DO NOT GET THIS APP⚠️
by hahshajabab on 2020/07/15 19:22
I used to love iMovie. However, once I started to take editing seriously, the app failed me. I would work long and hard on editing a project and then the app would ERASE all my work. The part where it shows my videos is black. I cannot play the video nor edit it anymore. There was one time when I somehow managed to save the edits I made, but nine out of ten times I’ve lost my work. If I could give it zero stars I would. I’m warning people now, do not get this app. There are many times I have wanted to write a review about this app, and how it takes away all your hard work, but most recently I went on a trip, and took videos there and started to edit them. Just now, today, I was editing it, and the screen went black where it shows my video. I couldn’t save my edits and hard work. And I can’t retake those videos. The only other option was to start all over and take hours and hours to do it. I did not have the time. But today, when I was editing it and the screen went black, I decided to write a review because I was fed up with it taking my hard work. In conclusion, this app is not a good choice if you are really trying to edit well.

it used to be really good, but lately it's been having trouble. i have an iphone 7 so i know it's not my phone. here's a few things you could fix: 1. let us crop it instead of having it always stay horizontal. i have vertical videos i put on there and it puts borders on the side and zooms straight in to the middle. if that's what you call a great editing app, i've seen better. i like lots of the features on imovie, but it's hard to use. 2. sometimes when i'm editing it just stops and doesn't let me change anything and moves the clips around where i dont want them. so i press done then edit it again and the video just goes black and i can't even play it. that's my main issue because i always have to keep starting over and it doesn't even let me save the video after it breaks. 3. maybe have the quality a little better? i press the highest quality when i'm done and it comes out much worse than before i even put it in imovie. please give thought to actually fixing it, because this app does have very good features, but it makes editing confusing and way harder than it needs to be.
Great, but more features need to be added.
by Aidan Carreon on 2020/06/26 00:16
This app is astonishing, Especially since it is free! But a couple more feature that I’m about to say will actually make the app better! 1. It would be better if you could move, or shrink the green screen video. This would actually be helpful for beginner youtubers/editors to have more subscribers, 2. If you could, make the ken burns effect able to work on the video, not just the picture. Meaning like if you’re moving your hand in a video, the ken burns effect can move along with the hand! 3. Make the text on the video able to move by your own liking! That would really help a lot, and also add text fonts, and text animations. But that’s basically all feature that I would love to see in IMovie, if you add the following features. That‘ll be the happiest update of my life. But besides that, the app is very awesome for beginners, also since it is very simple to understand and use!
Requires IOS 13.0
by Olivia.Magg on 2020/02/04 23:18
I have been using iMovie for quite a while. But sadly it says you need IOS 13.0. Which I don’t have. So I would very much like for iMovie to change that. iMovie is very good with editing though. For vlogs, movies, trailers. All is good from that point of view. With the text it’s hard to keep it in one spot without going through the whole section your doing. Just realize that some apps have their imperfections but iMovie is a great app. Me and my close friends just finished making a movie and a movie trailer. I hope you like iMovie too. I sure do! I’m just hoping they let people with a lower IOS use iMovie again. I really loved iMovie till it wouldn’t let me use it anymore. Overall iMovie is great it just has a few little glitches and stuff like that. Which all apps do. So if your going to complain about iMovie than you have over a million other apps to complain about to. This app is one of the least apps you would complain about. I love iMovie! If your looking at reviews to get a recommendation you really should try iMovie. If you have a high enough IOS😂😂 But definitely and I mean definitely try out iMovie! It’s really fun just a warning!!
Unreliable!
by jonyq107 on 2020/06/16 17:54
This is the most unreliable glitchy useless video editing app I’ve ever used! I just spent hours on a project and it the then this stupid app overlaps the audio and delays it a few seconds just enough so that it screws everything up. Not to mention it’s behind on so many features that plenty of other apps already have it’s absurd. It does this almost every single time I try editing a video. It’s ridiculous. Please fix this app for the love of God and all things good. Edit: I just spent an hour fixing all of the audio to my video and right after I got done fixing it, the audio glitches again and messed everything up.. I’m done with this app. It is so unreliable and seems to waste as much of my time as possible. I could've finished my online course on my computer with all the time I spent on iMovie but instead, it wasted that time and I didn’t get anything out of it since it glitched. You would think that a company as big as apple would at the very least have a RELIABLE app, but instead we have this stupid glitchy app with little to no useful features that would actually matter while editing videos. DO NOT USE THIS APP!
Great app! but some issues..
by Rainbowdashesbiggestfan on 2019/04/07 12:15
I am a nice person who likes making weird movies 😂 I’m not a pro with this app, I am really funny with my movies though but sometimes, it’s GLITCHY and why when I make a movie it just shows the starting part of the movie in the theater maybe this is just because I’m a newbie or because it just does that. I want to not see the starting part of the movie in the theater, I want it to be the words like the trailers with a theme but I don’t know how to do that. Also when I want to add a song from the music app it’s DRM protected,Even when I’m not going to publish the movie I’m making! Just showing it to my friends for a laugh 😆 and I make cartoony character animations in my movies and I want some silly music to go with it,But I cant get it and the theme music doesn’t really go with it. So basically, I just don’t like the music problem and the glitches but besides that, This app is amazing!! 🤩 have a nice day or night or what ever time your reading this 😂
Why I think it’s good
by boysarenotmyfavoritename on 2019/07/23 21:57
So I know you guys had some bad reviews, but it looks fine to me. I don’t know am I crazy? Are people over reacting? I don’t really make movies I just make trailers, I don’t know if there is something wrong with movies but everything seems fine with trailers. I mean overall it’s good. There was another app where everything there you needed to buy. I glad you can actually film in this one. Me and my friends love making trailers on this app. I hope it doesn’t get shut down. To be honest I don’t think anything is wrong with it. I just never make movies maybe someone makes movies and is really mad it’s broken. But you shouldn’t really care about audio anyways. At least they gave you music. You should enjoy the app. The only complaint I have is I’m on an iPad and I used iMovie on a computer once and the computer has more trailers? Is it a new update? Honestly I still love iMovie. Thank you.
I love iMovie, I hate iMovie
by oenchristian on 2019/02/17 18:39
APPLE PLEASE LISTEN TO ME For the past 3 years, I have been creating movies using the beautifully simple and somewhat intuitive iMovie app on iPhone, that once I learned how to use, opened and closed so many doors. On one hand, my editing skills got better, my creativity got better, and I could pull out shots from videos using iMovie that I wouldn’t have been able to use otherwise. Now on the other hand, the glitches. They have destroyed countless videos of mine due to the obvious stick-and-glue creation of the app and the complete lack of thought put into it. I swear any time nowadays I try to make a video, it crashes and all my music and audio is moved over a couple seconds and there goes my video. I edited a feature length long vlog that took me 2 months to edit because after a while of editing the various transitions between clips would be erased and replaced with what made it seem like a painful blink between clips. I have had it while I’m exporting the video to my camera roll, some of the audio is just taken out. APPLE I will gladly show you all of the videos I have with your various glitches. Please just FIX IMOVIE!!
Had some issues :/
by RedNightingale on 2018/11/04 03:02
I started out using iMovie for a class project, and because I discovered the trailer options, I began to use it for fun. I used videos of my friends to make funny movies of them because, why not? Eventually, I began to use iMovie on my MacAir, and that was when I realized what the app was missing. Since most of my videos were vertical, there was no way on the app for me to crop them to size and PLACEMENT of my choice. The app will take the vertical videos and fit them to a landscape layout, but it crops off the edges. When dealing with videos of people, this would mean that the template crops out their heads, and there is no way to adjust the videos so that I can reposition the window (on the app). Also, in the app’s trailer mode, I can’t seem to find a way to add a filter to individual clips like I can on the computer. Since I discovered all these missing features, the iMovie player on my computer is acting up, leaving it completely unusable. Now that I am forced to use the app, you can see how frustrated I am with the lack of options available. I highly recommend an update.
Very good, but...
by DisneyCars2 on 2019/02/04 01:39
So I enjoy this app a lot, and I use it to edit a lot of my videos. There are some changes I would recommend, though. Firstly, please fix the bug that makes hidden photos and videos viewable in the video sidebar. Secondly, please add more trailer templates and text templates. It’s basically stayed the same over the years, and it’d be great to have some new text templates trailer templates. And lastly, please add more music, and sound effects. Currently, I’ve heard just about every stock music track on iMovie (mobile) so maybe you could add some music from the desktop version, or maybe even compose some more? Also, about the sound effects on iMovie, and it’d be great if you could add more, again, like the desktop version. Please take some of these ideas into consideration, but please don’t feel obliged to add in every single one. With all of these ideas, iMovie could be one of the BEST editing apps on mobile phones. Thank you!! Sincerely, Christopher Oki
It’s keeps crashing
by hedjbdvhd on 2019/10/09 20:23
I’m trying to like this app but I can’t it’s so frustrating to edit on. Ever time I what to a put a song on my video it’s starts to the beginning and not where I want it to go. The app keeps crashing and I have to keep leaving the app and coming back. Sometimes it pausing out of nowhere and the music keeps playing. I don’t have time for this I just want edit my video and get it over. This is giving me a headache trying to figure what’s going on. My clips keep disappearing or the music sometimes it just moves to a different spot where I didn’t put it. I like KineMaster better even if it has a watermark it gets the job without frustrating I wanted to change my editing app because it had a watermark but now I really just want to go back to the app because it much easier to handle. Can you please fix this I have two videos to editing and it’s not going to get the job with these problems. Someone already address these problems it’s been a month and nothing happened yet.
Great place to start, but terrible to continue.
by Ze Operator on 2020/06/26 01:00
I’ll get straight to the point - the app does its job in acting as a post-production workstation, even on its mobile version. You can certainly make a nice film out of it if you try hard enough. Unfortunately, there is a severe lack of tools and a heavy amount of restriction that actually make it worth coming back to. Things like limiting the aspect ratio on photo (with the default setting to apply ken burns when usually it’s a filler method to make photos look good. There’s absolutely no need to add ken burns to EVERY photograph), limiting the amount of audio files attached to each slide to 4 per shot, limited amount of transitions, filters, and just a heavy restriction overall in terms of what movie we want to make over conventional work. Naturally, everyone has to start somewhere. But simply letting a workstation limit the amount that you can do for a movie is almost like mitigating wanting to make a good home movie at all. Feel free to use this. But if you’re a seasoned post-production editor, please consider the following before you use this.
Good editing app!!
by GirlGam3r73 on 2020/03/17 00:07
This app is good for editing and I highly recommend it if you enjoy making videos There’s just some things I wish it had, and it could improve it dramatically. The option to freeze music: I enjoy making music sync videos, but it’s hard to when I can’t freeze the music, so I might do something that could cause me to have to re-edit the entire thing, which can be a pain. Be able to move text around: If this was added I wouldn’t have a use for CuteCut because that’s all I use CC for, is to have moveable text. Custom zooming: With this, you could slowly zoom in and out in the video depending on how long the zoom duration lasts. And to go along with that, being able to cut smaller sections of video (and to have to option to turn off auto snapping in the video, what I mean by that is when you’re in the middle of a transition, like actually IN BETWEEN 2 clips, it moves over to which ever one the play head is closest to, that’s what I mean) because it gets annoying to have to cut areas of a video, than extend it back again because I can’t cut a certain section, or the playhead just automatically moves over There’s some problems I’ve encountered 1: When I’m done editing a video, there will be an audio delay where there wasn’t before in the raw video 2. Sometimes, the entire thing will refuse the keep playing, OR let me edit. The app will crash when I try to on said videos.
Horrible in the past, but now starting to get back on track.
by ckshap on 2018/01/17 20:14
I’ve owned this app for about maybe 5 years now? Ever since I got my first iPad, I have fallen in love with this app and caught myself using it many, many times again. However, it did get frustrating editing videos eventually, as there were many unsolved bugs and glitches. I used to hate iMovie because of this. What’s even worse is that I can’t really disable features I don’t like such as videos and pictures you take automatically saves to your camera roll so it’s easier to accidentally delete something and ruin your video. These problems are being fixed as we speak, but even then, they still exist. I’ve learned to accept it. However, with that being said, there is one feature that definitely stands out to me from all the others. iCloud downloading. iCloud downloading is the bane of my existence. No matter how many times it downloads everything, it always comes back and wastes 10 minutes of your time when all you want to do is preview the video. It shows up EVERY TIME I try to watch/edit one of my videos. I don’t understand the point of this! All of the videos are successfully downloaded onto my camera roll! What’s even worse is that I cannot disable it in settings, iCloud, or any other branch of iMovie I could possibly get my hands on. It’s a fallacy that people would like this feature, I don’t even understand the point of it at all. Hoping for a developer’s response?
Some changes should be made
by Redhead #3 on 2019/08/04 22:21
I love this app! It has helped me through a lot of school projects and just having fun! I love making movie trailers bc they always turn out professional and really funny! I have been told I have a talent behind the camera, and I really want to keep that talent. Anyway, about the movie trailers, I would really like to see if you could create your own theme and music template. If that makes sense. Like for example, the scary template. I would like to make a scary movie trailer but I want to make my own soundtrack for it and maybe make it longer. I would like to be able to do that. I would also like to create a whole new theme. And possibly multiple. Another thing I would add, is for the text boxes. I would like to have the option of moving them around however I would like and to change the color and design of it. Those are only a few things I would change and add! I hope these changes do get made, tho!
not downloading!
by Lilian🏝 on 2019/05/05 14:23
so basically i’ve had imovie as long as i’ve had my new phone, which is like a year and a half. at one point in like October ‘18, i ran out of storage so i deleted imovie. i didn’t rly care tho bc i wasn’t going to do anything with the videos and they were rly bad. about a month later, i decided to reinstall it just bc i wanted to make a quick video for my sisters bday. it installed and i was able to make a rly cool video for her. i later deleted it. now it’s May ‘19 and i want to reinstall it. ITS NOT DOWNLOADING! i have enough storage and everything! i’m connected to WIFI so it SHOULD download! idk what wrong w the app but it’s so annoying! it will say “Waiting...” for like 20 mins before i decide to tap on it to see if that does anything. it says “Loading...” and it installs A CRACK! then it literally stays like that forever! i decided to let it go over night, and when i woke not too long ago, IT HAD DISAPPEARED! not only did it not install any more AT ALL, but it had DELETED ITSELF. this makes me so angry bc i literally just want to make a video, and it not even installing! it’s never had problems like this b4. Apple, pls fix this!
Pretty good
by Ihvuyvgu on 2020/01/12 18:40
This is a really good app but it would be nicer if we could make longer videos because what’s the point if it’s supposed to be a movie, and it isn’t even an hour long? Like I feel like this app might need to be updated, just saying. Otherwise, it’s really fun. But the problem is that when you make a lot of videos and you don’t delete them, then it’ll say that your storage is full. Like that doesn’t really make sense to me. And it’s really expensive to buy storage. Also the trailers, the trailers I feel like are just silly. Because basically all you do is take a bunch of photos and videos and then when your done, you can’t really do much to edit which is disappointing. Maybe make some improvements for the trailers. Also the background changes are kinda boring when you use them a lot. So maybe it could be like a beach, a forest, or even a place to eat! That would be great if that happened.

today I was editing a gotcha edit for a music video and in the middle of me making it it had a new update for every pic is small on the timeline and it takes me 100 tries to get it to the right links to match the music I tried reloading I tried deleting and re-downloading the app 1 million times I just want the old iMovie back I won hundred percent do not recommend this anymore, A couple minutes ago it was my favorite app to use now it is my least favorite please fix this, also I need a movie that took me forever to do and then I watched it and loved it! A couple days later I figured iMovie doesn't need my photos anymore so I deleted all the photos that it took a little bit later I wanted to show my friend when she was over, but a message popped up saying that I couldn't watch it because of the pictures missing that's the stupidest thing ever! I movie please get your stuff together!!! Sidenote, I love that you guys are always advancing your stuff with new updates, but it can get annoying. When I finally catch up and figure out how to work one update a new one comes in! Talk about inconvenience!!
I like it but there are some problems
by SammyLFK on 2018/10/22 23:42
I really like iMovie but whenever I try to watch A movie I made it says downloading video!! I get that you need to download the videos but then I have it months to download but it still says downloading!! I don’t understand why it doesn’t download! Another problem is that I wish that whenever we made a trailer there wasn’t music because whenever I put a video with dialogue in the trailer you don’t heat the speaking. But I also sometimes want to have music so I think it would be cool to be able to control how loud the music is and if it has music at all. One last thing I don’t even know what the theater thing is because I have never seen it! Either it doesn’t have anything on it for me or it just takes to long to load and I don’t have the patience to wait for it. I would try to fix that. Also I have an iPod touch if you want to know. I hope you add these to the app! SammyLFK

I enjoy iMovie a lot because I love making videos, just random videos. If you’re looking for something professional, iMovie is not for you. But something to make quick videos, this works. It has a decent amount of features, enough for me! Some people don’t like the lack of features but that’s only if you’re trying to make something advanced. I love how easy it is to use and I think that’s part of the reason I’ve never looked into a good video editor. This is easy to use even for dummies like me. The only thing that I hate is that once you delete scenes within your video from your camera roll, you can’t watch it. I understand that you wouldn’t be able to edit the video once the scenes are deleted, but it should be easy to just watch what we have. There are so many times I have videos that I can’t watch, in iMovie. Bummer. But other than that I recommend iMovie for beginner editors!!
Why!
by Pretty Ballerina ❤️💜 on 2018/05/27 12:56
This app is really fun app you can combine videos you can make movies trailers it’s very cool. But one of the things I absolutely HATE about this app is that if you delete one of your movies or if you have one on there it goes to your photos it go to your picture library and I don’t have enough storage to be keeping all my videos that should’ve been on iMovie in my photo storage! So I was wondering if you delete or make a video in the next update you can make it not go to our picture library because it’s a waste of time and storage because the videos aren’t together they are separate videos, Which doesn’t make it very fun at all! Sorry if I’m yelling so much. I just don’t want a lot of pictures and videos that should’ve only stayed on this app instead of my photo library. So please consider this in your next update please & thank you. 🤟🏻👋😍😁
This is the best option of doing videos
by -Genevieve F.L on 2018/10/14 22:24
I use this for videos and it works well it makes great things like moving the screen and you can make music and sound affects personally the sound affects it gets annoying once you click it a thousand times if you have a family like me I annoy them all the time and they would get really mad 😂 I love the affect where you can zoom in and it starts like that and when you have the music playing while the sound affects are going on although you can’t put any other music on either because they don’t have it or you can’t do it I just got the app so I’m clueless😐 I love the app so far! It is a very good app because you can add anything you want! But I only use it for videos and also if you want to make it black and white on one part but the whole thing turns black and white it’s an issue but I rated it 5 stars because it is a very good app!
Would like to say I like it
by Sp73731 on 2018/04/29 01:12
I started out loving IMovie. It was great. I made some videos, trailers, then I started doing more complicated videos that takes weeks to do. Videos timed to music. And I can’t begin to explain what goes through your mind when something you’ve spent weeks on becomes garbage. The app glitches over and over. This has been a recurring issue over a few years, and has destroyed multiple videos for me, and my sister. I can see I’m not the first to write a review about constant glitches with audio moving by itself, clips lengthening and shortening on its own, and switching back when you try to fix it. This isn’t a new problem and it’s frustrating apple hasn’t fixed it, especially considering the amount of people complaining about it, and the lengthy amount of time this has been happening. You better fix it apple, because people will stop using this app they have to be paranoid their video is going to be ruined. The only solution we can work with is consistently saving the video, which takes a crap ton of space. Just a heads up apple😑
Close but no dice😑
by Laidiecloth on 2020/06/27 23:50
This app! So many great things, AND just as many complaints. Grab a chair, cause you’re gonna be here a while. °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° 1. Lags. I make a LOT of Gachas (this makes no sense if you don’t know what that is😂) and most of them about 30 minutes (more like ten...) so once I pass five minute, the rage kicks me in the face. I would just finish extending or ending a clip and then it would kick me out without a warning. This is really frustrating because it happens often. Really hope that is fixed☺️... °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° 2. Green screen discoloration So I would be adding a green screen to something, and there would be a color like black around the rims. You would think it would be fine, but then my whole thing turn a weird shade of, green...brown..gray? I really hope that it would stop happening. Maybe it’s just me though😞..... °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° 3. Sound Effects. To be honest, the sound effects sound fine. My problem is how limited the sound effects are. There is no heart beat, and the footsteps only walk on dirt. There is no car crash, no eating, no plane taking off, no..I’ll just stop now. °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° Thank you for listening to me whine. Since you listen to me, it would also help if you actually made the changes😓. Thank you!☺️
Not working well. But read...
by Lando_pool on 2019/10/25 23:34
So I’m trying to make a slowed video of my friend. In order to do that, you must press the clip you are trying to edit and then you press the speedometer logo. Well I did so and went to slow it down, once done it brought a new clip up and wouldn’t even slow down. I tried with a different clip and it would do the same thing. I got pretty frustrated so I tried some other things and it would just skip to another part in my video or pop up another clip that I didn’t need. I tried closing the app and the app it’s self and it wrecked my video that I’ve been working on for 3 hours and nothing will come up. I’ve been using IMovie scents I was about 9-10 and I’m 13 now. I’m very disappointed and I wish it didn’t happen, i have a thought in my head to go try again but I don’t want to risk it waisting my time again so I will most likely hop on the computer and edit from there. It’s a good app in all but I’m disappointed about this....
iMovie suggestion
by Karen “Mom" on 2018/11/06 17:35
iMovie is really handy for me to use on my iPad. I make stop motions in another app, and then import them over and add music and sound effects. But I would really like and appreciate it if you guys added a way to add some visual effects. I know you can do it on the computer version, but I’d really like to be able to add pre keyed effects, or be able to key effects. Or maybe add some default pre keyed effects to the app itself, and add different themed effects packs we could download. Similar to how GarageBand has downloadable packs with different sounds and instruments. I’d really appreciate it if you guys were able to do something like that. Thanks. Also, you guys seriously need to fix the issue where the app doesn’t export a movie. For me, it’s usually if my movie has too many freezes, cuts, or sound effects. I know a wide range of people have also experienced this issue, and it really makes relying on the app to make a video difficult.
very sad :(
by Kaykay615 on 2019/05/20 23:45
i’ll just start off with saying i’m only a few days away from finishing freshman year. so i made a plan to make a “vlog” every last few days of every year of high school, for the memories. so i made my freshman one today, recorded all day, edited all day and i got home and i was about to show my mom...but first i wanted to show my friends so i was going to save it to my camera roll to send to them. i didn’t have enough storage so i went through my camera roll and deleted all the clips that were in the vlog. went back to the app and clicked save to camera roll and guess what, “cant save because clips used were deleted.” i cried and cried, i don’t know why i guess i’m stressed because of finals but that’s still sad. i wanted memories of my last days of freshman year and now they’re gone forever. most of my friends that were in the video, today was their last day and i won’t be seeing them for a while...i just assumed that when i transfer my videos to the app it would be ON THE APP. very disappointed and sad...but there’s nothing you guys can do now.
