by Theonly.zbby❤️💍 on 2020/01/19 14:12
It’s a great app but I don’t have IOS 13 so that really stuck for me but i is have it but I had to delete for a moment when I wanted to get it back I couldn’t get it back I was mad but if y’all can change the iOS version that willl really help me 🥰.

But I’m still a little upset because it deleted all my progress all those movies and trailers were really special . But , thankfully i got a new I pad for Christmas and I movie works!
How to get IMOVIE (After Latest Update)
by Myron_Anthony on 2020/01/19 12:35
If you’ve been using IMovie & been locked out after the iOS 13 update here is the solution.. It’s called (PandaHelper).. download this 3rd party app, allow it to run with you’re settings & once it’s installed you can download IMovie from their App Store.. I’ve done a lot of research on this issue & this was the only resolution I’ve found..I hope it helps you like it helped me :)
Glitches Too Much

I’ve used this app for awhile and the glitches keep getting worse. Very hard to edit using this app.

It's really bad super confusing it takes up all my space and I had to delete roblox and my editing app for this app and it's so annoying
Awesome!
by Victuna Burns on 2020/01/18 14:07
I’ve been using iMovie for years to make movies, and YouTube videos, and it is great! I like the sound effects, and new background music they added! What I wish there was though, is if there were more filters. I do like the filters now, but I just wish there were more. Also, if I could make clips shorter than 0.4 seconds. Maybe going into the hundredths, like 0.01? I’ve really wanted to make some kind of animation, but all the animation apps have let me down. Anyways, iMovie is so far, the best app I’ve used to make movies! I recommend this app for beginner movie creators!!!
Portrait Mode! It’s 2020
by UrbanUnbound.com on 2020/01/18 09:18
What the hell Apple? Stories are a major way people share videos yet you still after over a decade don’t permit portrait mode. Use your fortune to provide a little bit of value to your users rather than plot how to program our phones to break 20 months in.
I love iMovie but whyyy
by donjaay on 2020/01/18 05:51

I should really get an Android
by Triggered fan on 2020/01/17 23:07
iMovie was almost half decent for a while, and I was able to download older versions, but now I updated my operating system, and they won’t let me download the old versions anymore, so now I can’t use it because my phone’s too old for the new version.
The Ios Update
by jiminlpabo on 2020/01/17 16:00
I really enjoy imovie, but sadly you have to have the updated version. I use an ipod since my phone broke and now I can’t edit my videos, please fix this.
missing some features

VERTICAL FORMAT!!!!!!!!!
by Captainbeardbeard!! on 2020/01/17 05:14
I love this app. I use it for allll my video editing. But can you PLEASE MAKE A VERTICAL VIDEO FORMAT. I want to upload vertical videos to IGTV but I don’t like the black side on the video. I try to find apps that cut the sides off but then the quality goes down and it doesn’t look good. It would be great if there was a way to choose between making a horizontal and a vertical video. I love all the features and how simple it is to edit but still make professional looking videos. LOVE THIS APP. BUT PLEASEEEEE VERTICAL VIDEOS!
Not that good
by Dean Boehle on 2020/01/17 04:16
There are a lot better video editing apps out there. This one is way to glitchy.
Good but don’t like this change..
by yunahb1 on 2020/01/17 03:34
I love iMovie but I don’t like this change about this IOS...I have lower i just want the old version. Don’t get me wrong iMovie is a great app.
Why did they do this
by F34r5yth on 2020/01/17 02:47
It’s sad that I can’t use iMovie anymore because I have a YouTube channel and iMovie is how I edit my Videos so if they can just let us use it without 13.0 that would be great
Imovies amazing
by VerticalKyro on 2020/01/16 22:22
Imovies a Really good editing mobile app u can make montages cut videos together and it’s so fun! But sadly mobile can’t make thumbnails yet.I Love this app even tho sometimes it takes long to upload a video but otherwise this app is amazing for editing
One Problem
by DeadlyQynDuh on 2020/01/16 18:24
I love almost every feature of IMovie except this one When you insert a photo it moves around like can you not add this feature because it is annoying when make videos...
Confusing
by DMH1971 on 2020/01/16 11:48
I don’t really like using this as much as KineMaster because adding text and the overall look and feel of it is just hard for me to use
just awful.
by sup3r87 on 2020/01/16 06:23
I’m not provided much other for video editing by my school or my Waller besides iMovie, which is a shame. Literally everything is wrong, my one friend’s audio was cluttered during his project because moving something jumbles everything up. I’m working on a school project and videos that I CROPPED AND DUPLICATED get AUTO UNCROPPED when I import them, so I can’t work on my project. It’s also hard to search for effects, you can’t have more than one object on the screen, you can’t choose where text goes and when besides constantly on an entire picture.. even making a family photo collage is a pain with iMovie. Get yourself a better video editor if you’re thinking about making anything that works, even if it costs money. It’s worth it to escape the worst app Apple ever made.
iMovie needs a facelift

by Mizzy Andersen on 2020/01/16 03:16
I love this app I use it for many things but I just have 1 thing with apple music I download songs on my phone all! The! Time! But I can never use them I can only use songs I have purchased. But besides that I would just want all the things the Mac does because I don’t feel like filming with iPad/phone and then having to send all the pictures and videos to my Mac just because I want 1 transition it’s kind of Tiring but otherwise I use it and love it 👌🏻

Crashing lately and voice recording
by LoneSurvivorYT on 2020/01/15 15:54

Can’t Get It Back! :(

It’s good, but I don’t have iOS 13.
by Egabadiff on 2020/01/15 02:24
I’ve been using I movie for a long time, and it works very well. But now, you have to have iOS 13, which I don’t have.
Fun but...
by Filledwiththefire on 2020/01/15 02:18
... you have to have a update if you don’t have the right one but besides that it is really fun
I really hate it now!!
by Watis_this on 2020/01/15 01:44
I’ve been using this app in its early days and now it sh*t I’m sorry to say it but I was good at first it’s just bad no because every time I add a new video the screen goes black or it crashes and it’s getting me really mad about it and it’s so bad that it made me hate it so much
Ugh
by Flawless Tay on 2020/01/15 01:27
I always use iMovie but how am I supposed to if my phone doesn’t have iOS 13 apple you need to change this at least I have a iPhone this is not fair to me I really love iMovie and it’s stressing me out I’m trying to edit a video and I can’t even find the perfect app to edit I can only depend on iMovie🥴😔

I’ve been using iMovie for a long time period. I don’t have that iOS 13 update. I will be very glad they change that. But over all iMovie is on top.

I didn’t think I could do it all on my phone but I did! I thought I would need my laptop but it’s too out of date😬! So I thought I was screwed until I got the help! Thanx iMovie!🙏😇👏🏼😁

Won’t upload
by omfgallthenamesrtaken2 on 2020/01/13 19:31
This app seems to me a waste of time. I spent time making my movies but they wouldn’t upload. I turned off my phone and deleted and reloaded the app as suggested. All my movies were lost. I deleted the app again. I wouldn’t bother.
Bring IMovie Back
by Talyah J Youtuber on 2020/01/13 17:50
I have been using IMovie for over a year now and it is a really great app but all of sudden it deleted off my iPhone 6s and says that I need IOS 13.0 or later. I used IMovie for my YouTube channel Talyah and I really need this app back on my phone so I can do YouTube again for my over 1,000 subscribers. Is anyone else having this problem with the app? Before I used IMovie, I was using this app called Reaction.Cam it was also a really great app but that app also got deleted or disabled. Please bring these apps back! Please ASAP! I don’t have any other apple products only my iPhone and using my phone is a big priority for my YouTube Channel.
it’s come to this
by Adri79194 on 2020/01/13 17:07
i love using imovie, but lately, it’s been terrible. it crashes and takes forever to load, as well as you can’t use videos that have been previously deleted. i never leave reviews but i’m so annoyed i felt i had to.
This app makes me want to buy a Samsung
by Patrick_Walsh on 2020/01/13 03:03
I hate this app. I’m working on a school project, and every time I upload a picture to the iMovie, it cuts off the top and bottom of the picture. When I pinch to try and zoom out the picture it messes up the alignment of the photo. I don’t suggest this app at all, as it is not user friendly.
Some bugs that need to be fixed
by Charlie and eternity and sarah on 2020/01/13 01:25
This app is really good. The only thing wrong with it is it just freezes a lot, and sometimes it exits the application please fix this please
This is sad
by Aydan Guzman on 2020/01/13 01:11
You can’t make your own music unless of the trashy music tracks. You would have to record a song then put it over your videos. This app is very sad.
Decent
by Gav1216 on 2020/01/12 23:13
iMovie is a great app and I’ve done lots of amazing things with it. However, my movie went black, and I couldn’t access any of the clips, or the audio. I couldn’t save the video, much less export it to anything. Spending lots of time on a video just to have it delete itself is motivation-depleting, and I don’t want to spend 30 minutes trying to record everything again.
it’s the greatest app ever

Fallen from greatness!
by Travel112488 on 2020/01/12 20:35
This used to be my favorite app. Ever since the last update however, it has become the most stress inducing app on my phone. It tells me that I don’t have enough space to export my videos even though I have plenty. It won’t allow me to even open certain files anymore altogether. This thing is terrible now. I hate to give it up, simply because of some of the editing features that I have grown to love, but I can’t do it anymore. And there seems like there is no real effort to relieve any of these issues.
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.
Not so good

iMovie
by Olivia.Magg on 2020/01/12 15:48
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!!
Can’t re-download

App Doesn’t Work for me anymore
by theethejellyfishgirl on 2020/01/12 14:36
I love this app but it doesn’t work for me anymore. I have an iPad Mini 2 and I can’t afford to upgrade. I can’t update it anymore and it needs iOS 13 to download. I loved creating fun videos with this app and i’m sad I can’t use it anymore.

Please Read
by PotatoElf on 2020/01/12 02:11
When I started using this in 2016 I used it all the time but now I can’t because it isnt Avilable to my device which is very annoying and is annoying me off but if your looking for a review of my experience I really liked all the features and it was really easy to use for those of us who are not good at editing videos for YouTube But now I can’t use it and I dont even know what editing app to use now because all of them are super complicated and have huge watermarks at the bottom of the screen So I really only have one request... please make another editing app like this but without all the features of the IOS 13 update for those of us with the IPhone 6 or 5 But I’ll probably find something else to use until I have enough money to buy a better device but by the time that happens it won’t even be compatible LOL
Much better then Clips
by willa_m on 2020/01/12 02:10
I have been using iMovie for a long time and have had great results. I recently tried Clips and got very frustrated because I wasn’t getting what I needed out of it which was simply combining multiple clips. I don’t know why it wasn’t working but with iMovie it worked fine and I got a good final product.
Glitches
by JollyPanther on 2020/01/12 00:08
iMovie glitches so much! I always use it to edit my videos, but then sometimes, it doesn’t let me and the video just turns black. And it’s JUST for that video! The other videos work just fine, but also, the timings are so weird! Sometimes I just edit and then BOOM, my cursor just goes to a random location in the video, then the edits that I already done just disappear!! But still, it works fine for projects that are minimal and don’t require too much editing, and it’s free so that’s why I use it.
Use it every day!
by robert utha on 2020/01/12 00:06
I love it but some ideas I want so this is 4 star ratings, Okay there needs to be sifi trailers, more things on the movies. Also edit more things with the intros for trailers
Good app
by rainbow tangerine on 2020/01/11 23:51
This app is great! I didn’t know how this worked at first but then when I figured out how to use it, it was pretty good!
Mixed feelings🤔
by S.Ha. on 2020/01/11 22:13
To start off, its a really great app for making simple fun movies. But it has some flaws. For one, it you delete a video or photo on your camera roll, it does not save it on iMovie. Then you can’t access any of the movie or trailer😢. But other wise I would recommend this app. I think we should credit for it’s easy functions.
Ehhhh…
by i tryed a lot of apodos on 2020/01/11 22:06
iMovie is very good exept it didn’t save my work but very fun to work in and edit the work if its on iPhone it dosnt save i don’t know if it saves on other divises

This app is ok
by gracen$$$$$$$$$$jhnmk on 2020/01/11 21:11
There are only a few things to choose from and it’s really difficult and complicated use it takes a long long time and it is difficult to make your own movies and trailers and for the movie you can’t even make your own you have to make little clips at a time what is the point.And it’s really low rated and you cannot find it on the App Store it’s like it’s not even there I’m sorry😔😢
Irrelevant app - no support for vertical/ portrait orientation videos
by Mirocal on 2020/01/11 20:06
Apple, who do you think shoots then edits for wide screen with your puny iMovie!? Serious projects are edited on desktop, so whom do you target this app to? To no one. Deleting these clogging bits, bye.
Bad Timing
by rgkrceofbe on 2020/01/11 19:15
When I’m editing a reaction, I try to line up the music video when I unpaused and stuff perfectly but then it either just goes forward or it overlaps onto the other clips before it and it’s so annoying. I uninstalled it for this it’s so annoying I hate it. And the video itself goes really slow. Like it goes a normal speed but the clip in the editing software at the bottom looks so slow, like 1 minute takes up nothing of the video at the bottom
Ok for basics but need to restart phone after each use

Trash ... where are all the features of the desktop version?
by Dragon master k on 2020/01/11 05:10
Can add text intermittently through your videos without cutting up your whole video since there is no time control on text and titles like the desktop version. Can’t change text fonts or colors. Just garbage downgrade from the original version, and way to hard to edit videos. If you want to make a super simple video that’s dated...this is perfect for you.

I really love this app and it’s so useful when you need to clip videos together. I love making little clips with my friends on here!!! Although you have to learn it to get use to it it’s the best app ever!!💖💖

The app is great for editing like adding music and text, but my problem about this app is I uninstalled it to make room on my phone, but when I went to the App Store and tried to look up the app it didn’t show. The next day I tried it and it still didn’t appear so then I went to safari to see if I can’t download it off the internet and the first thing that popped up was the app and under it an install button so I clicked on it and it sent me here. When the app showed up the install button was faded out so I couldn’t press it so I decided to write to you to see if you can do anything about it.
I love it!!!
by Aj912008 on 2020/01/11 00:14

DISGRACE TO THE EDITING WORLD!!!!
by :);)4545 uni on 2020/01/09 22:15
up until now I have loved The app but it deleted the MOST IMPORTANT video there and it makes me want to cry the video was important 4 years of hard work down the drain!!😡😡😡😡😡😡😡 This is totally wrong! I should get a free apple card or something for this disgrace!!! Please don’t ignore this review!! How dare you apple, how dare you!!!! Anyone reading this unless you want your work gone don’t get this app. Apple if you make this right I will give you a five star review. If you don’t within a week I will remove the app with disappointment.😡😡👎👎👎
This app gave me my first D in Science Class
by Formal App Critic on 2020/01/09 19:03
ATTENTION PLEASE READ BELOW!! Since this app is one of the only free ones available I have been using for a few years, and it has always met my needs. However in the past month, this app has been extremely frustrating and unreliable. The audio never lines up and sometimes doesn't let you even edit clips when attached to a pic. Because of this app I have had multiple assignments I was forced to turn in late. I would rather pay money for a good reliable app then use this one for free.
Why do people not like this app
by patelmay on 2020/01/09 08:06
This app is the best and it works all the time so if you are wondering for a movie or trailer maker choose 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 😂
I’ve only seen 1080P results on an iPhone 8

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.
This app is bad
by Ryno619720 on 2019/07/15 16:17
Lets start off with my first reason, this iMovie app does not allow you to have your own music so you cannot download a music track or song that you want unless you get a different app and share the music to iMovie but overall it is a hassle to do that. Second reason, this is also about the music deal, when I want to download a song, which I do from a great app Called documents, anyway when I do that it shows the song picture and then the music. You can detach the audio from the video or picture but you cannot delete the video or picture because if you delete either one of those it deletes the audio, that doesn’t make any sense why it does that. Third reason, it’s overall glitchy. For example when I want to add a picture it doesn’t give you the option to select things, which means you can select multiple pictures. It doesn’t have that Feature only at one period of time you can do that which is at the beginning. Fourth reason, when you want to do a trailer you do not have the option to edit what the trailer music is. For example I am a stop motion artist and I wanted to do a trailer for fun. But the last thing I wanted to do was add my own music, then I found out that you cannot add your own music. Wow that is also dumb.
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.
iMovie
by Olivia.Magg on 2020/01/12 15:48
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!!
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.
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
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! 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
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
a few things you really need to fix (READ)
by Sk8tr05 on 2018/02/10 17:32
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.
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.
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.
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
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!
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!!
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!
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
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!
Why!

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. 🤟🏻👋😍😁
Would like to say I like it

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😑
Not working well. But read...

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.
Future feature suggestions
by Blaze600 on 2019/08/18 16:08
This is by far one of the best mobile video editing apps out there! Super simple to use while being quite powerful at the same time! I do however have couple feature suggestions that would make the app even better. ———————— Needs the ability to apply stabilization to videos. Similar to how you can in iMovie & Final Cut Pro on macOS. Processors in our iPhones & iPads are at a point now that I believe they should be able to handle this without issue. Video timeline needs to be more robust. Such has being able to stack content as you can on the Mac version. This one may already be in the works but ounce iOS 13 releases, there needs be an option to import files/content into iMovie from an external drive such as flash drive or HDD from right inside the app. This would allow for a much more efficient workflow for creators. This next one is sort of off the wall & doesn't pertain to iMovie entirely but I really think we need to have a mobile version of Final Cut Pro that could be used with the new iPad pros. One that has most if not all the features available in the desktop version. Again, I think we are at a point where mobile processors could handle something like this with ease! I can just imagine being able to edit Pro level video on an iPad Pro in final cut, that would be awesome!
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.
Awesome editor but can use some suggestions
by Skilled Wolf on 2017/11/25 23:46
First of all I love this app I use this to edit my wolf shleich videos. But I think it can use some suggestions like: Maybe you can add a feature that allows you to connect to itunes and you can choose a song and put it in your video in any section. And maybe put more stuff like: particals (choose shape size color and what type of partical such as: sparkles, smoke, dust, fog, oh, and what do you want it to do: lay on the ground or float. And maybe a disapearing affect like you can choose something to make disapear and you click on it it disapears and the disapearing apears in the video. And you can choose hoe it disapears: slow or fast. And maybe a glowing affect choose something to make light up click and poof (trace the item with the glow) choose the color like:yellow black bluse red etc. overall its a great app ✌🏻✌️🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Ok but could be better
by Aninha19t on 2019/09/02 15:08
I love how I movie is the easiest thing to work with for projects. I love how it gives examples for trailers and sparks ideas. I also love how it is fun to make funny videos or trailers for movies. Now I don’t normally take the time to write reviews but when I was downloading iMovie on my phone I saw that it had 3.9 stars and it broke my heart. iMovie is an absolute awesome app that you can easily get addicted to it. A thing that they could make a little better was the titles. The title can get really annoying because you enter/return when you want to go down. This annoys the heck out of me because how many times do you want to go down but you can’t. I used to hate how they didn’t have green screen but I am really happy with the fact that they added it. I am so pleased with IMovie and I am excited to get working with it again.
What the heck did you do to iMovie???
by GLOSSYI'D on 2018/11/11 02:18
It was glitchy and buggy before but it is almost unusable now? I have the freakin iPhoneX and cannot even edit ONE movie and audio clip without it being glitched. I cut the music track, it doesn’t show a cut? I have to save exit edit again to see the cut? Then what I slow down or speed up in the video portion of it is off from what I review to what’s saved?? I watch the saved file only to find it is NOT how I edited it at all? This WAS a great Apple program. Easy to use and simple enough to edit, cut, patch, paste, ect last year. I re-downloaded it again last night only to see that not only are the previous bugs still around, they’ve become bunnies and reproduced lots more into TONS of problems and bugs now?? Undo it. Please fix it. Seriously annoyed, I cannot even make one movie project without the app freezing and requiring a restart? Come on Apple, I would think that the company who makes the iPhone would have the primary software/app that’s more compatible to the phone than third party software makers??
It’s okay😐
by dawgs18 on 2018/03/12 15:38
iMovie is really fun but after a while it gets really boring just doing the same trailers over and over again, it would be nice if you could add some of the trailers that the computer has like epic drama or love story. Another idea is that you should add a trailer that like glitches on like the places where you can put the picture and then I glitches to another picture. Also do you think it would be possible to start adding iMovie to androids and tablets? Like Samsung or something else. Oh and here’s one last suggestion maybe you should let the people choose how long the trailers are going to be and how many people are going to be in the trailer. Just like in the teen trailer you should be able to add more cast members to that because what if there is more people on in venture after school ended and it was a long trip and there was more than four people. Anyways thank you for your time and sorry if this is very long for you.
I love this app, but...
by Stikbot goodie on 2018/07/16 16:42
This app is amazing! I use it almost everyday. This is probably the best user friendly editing app you can get for mobile. And it doesn’t even try to sell you up to the “full version” or “no ads” kinda thing. It doesn’t even have ads! The reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is because when I was working on a movie, the app crashed, I went back in, and all my audio was in the wrong places, and every clip randomly ended in black! Even though I figured out how to MANUALLY fix it all, it was not a fun process. Also, when I recorded a video with the new screen recorder feature with a voiceover imbedded in it, when I put it iMovie, the voiceover wasn’t there! And it wasn’t a problem with the video itself, because I checked it in my camera roll! (Please update iMovie to be able to work with the screen recorder feature.) But other than that, great app.
2 bothersome things
by Hydra Power on 2018/06/18 14:10
iMovie is a great IOS editor don’t get me wrong but their are two things that makes me give 4 stars instead of 5 stars. First off the text options are horrible in my opinion, you only get a few set options with annoying transitions. The text also can’t change size, color, font, or move around/place on the video/photo, most editors have these basic options it is weird to see a corporation like apple not implant these features to a basic editor. Photos also cannot be placed on videos for some odd reason, and again most basic editors have these options. But all that side, iMovie is great and did most things right like cropping and photo/video transitions. The app also comes with great sound effects. The app could add more advance options for professional editors but I understand it’s just trying to be a basic editor so, I excuse iMovie for that.
I am crying right now
by Lillylolx on 2019/03/07 03:35
Good for SMALL projects guys please don’t use this for anything school related because my project is due tomorrow, I thought it would be nice to go above and beyond so I thought I would use iMovie to make a cool movie presentation for class. I had so much homework, and I worked on this project (7 minutes long) for 4 hours straight. I was so tired at the end, but I added funny pictures and I thought it was so worth it. I was showing my friend, proud of my work, and she suggests I add some booing sound affect to one of the clips. I thought it was a good idea. But I clicked the sound, applied it, and then... all of the audio. Shifted. To the beginning of the video. All of the over voices. It was so late. I don’t want to keep going and fix it. I know I should persevere, but I’m so tired... I just want to go to bed. I don’t even like that class... I swear I’m going to drop out. So guys, don’t use it for an important school or work video that is longer than 7 minutes. And if you REALLY have to resort to it, please, do not try to add any sound affects such as booing or clapping. Thank you.
Good once all your progress is gone
by TurtleLady3345 on 2018/01/28 03:37
So I used this on three different devices and this happened on all of them. iPhone 8, iPhone SE, and iPad Pro. Say I’ve been working on editing a video for about 30 minutes. Then, you go to cut one of your audio files or video. Then you see that it shows in grey(means that tool isn’t available for that type of format or something), Even when you know that it is possible to cut video or audio. Once the app realizes it messed up, it will just erase everything. When you try to play the video, it just comes up with black and no audio. I hate this so much because it only happened when you worked on it for a long time. The reason I’m barely writing this now even though it’s been happening for a while is because I’ve tried to make the same video three times and then I decided to finally write a review. It has good features for an app. I get that using the app restricts you but, it’s fine. Please. Please. Please, fix it. But yeah. I hate you iMovie.
The best video app, but needs improvement
by Victoawesome on 2019/07/12 01:25
I couldn’t have asked for a better editing experience, especially since most other apps trick you for your money. I love iMovie and it’s literally the best editing app on the go, but if you can move things it would be better. Moving text in your videos and moving green screen images would be so helpful. For example, I can make text smaller or bigger when I need it and I can move it in a certain place to not block a part of a video. And for the green screen I want to be able to move the green screened video and drag it to a certain area. And what would also be cool is if I can drag the green screened video and it could track and item, so for example, if I had an apple in my hands, I can have a video of a hot dog in a green screen to replace the Apple and it could follow it’s movements, I think it would be so helpful.
Long overdue for a significant update
by aquasloth on 2018/04/08 13:52
Works well, easy to put together a decent video in a short amount of time. However, some features and options that should have been introduced a long time ago are still absent. Compare the significant updates made to the GarageBand app to this. Still can’t change aspect ratios, frame rates, or even simple placement of titles on the screen. Can’t change font or color of titles. What if I don’t want every title to fade in? There’s countless apps that will do chroma key or stop motion animation, sure, but couldn’t these features be easily implemented in iMovie? Since we can use AUV3 effects in GarageBand, why can’t we use them in iMovie’s audio tracks? Effects and filters are limited, no split-screen or picture-in-picture, no color correction or contrast/brightness settings...makes me appreciate apps like LumaFusion, LumaFX, and even Pinnacle Studio even more, and those apps are developed and updated by much smaller development staff. Please take the time to grow this app!
Amazing BUT just ONE thing
by come on no free girls on 2018/07/30 17:13
I love this app!! it was the first editing app I had!! it’s is Amazing BUT can you put more music for vids!! I love it btw but I want that to change because I want to post vids like other people! but I always wonder where to get the music? and I have thousands of app for editing vids but one has amazing music but I don’t think I will use it because it has its name on the bottom!! this one is amazing and is smart enough to know not to put the name of the app on the bottom!! PLEASE change that please I’m begging you please!! Btw I love it it’s amazing please reply and change it will be AWESOME only if you add more music to it! But either way the other apps are only good this one is Amazing I want it to be AWESOME it will be if you add more music please do LOVE IT😂 Thank you for taking you time to read😃 -Cindi
Things I would like
by Salty-Susan on 2018/11/08 22:43
I would like to have green screen added I’ve looked at some other editing softwares and they have green screen but they have watermarks which I dislike So it would be nice if you added green screen also I would like it if you could pick the area to use green screen on like if you only wanted the background then click the background or for it to register hot pink, dark blue, green to change for green screen It would also be nice if you added different fonts and different colors for them Because when I have a white background it just sometimes doesn’t show So I would like different colors And for the fonts I’m getting pretty bored of the same font so it would be nice if there was more I would also appreciate if there was a option to stop the app from automatically taking my pictures and making them 6 seconds long and if there was a option to make the transitions stop automatically going to fade and etc because for me I animate on this app and I use picture by picture and I spend most of my time putting the pictures to .4 seconds and changing the transition It would also be nice to have a setting to turn of ken burns cause it gets annoying sometimes also being able to add more audio and see them would be nice and adding videos to over lap same with pictures It would be appreciated if theses were added
Needs to be updated but still a good app
by I do my research on 2018/07/21 18:34
iMovie is a really great app and is the best movie making app out of all of them but it really needs to be updated and have new content added to it and bug fixes! Sometimes there will glitch while you’re editing it and it will freeze, when this happens I have exited out but then it won’t let me continue editing it it just exits out when I do! It lets me edit everything else except the one project that had the glitch! And the thing is you would expect maybe this is happening cause my software isn’t up to date or that my iPad model is older but my iPad is brand new and my software is up to date!! I don’t know how to fix it and I don’t think there is anyone I can email and I had been working so hard on the project to so it’s kinda annoying! But it is a good app it just needs some tweaks! I would probably either give it like a three point five or four stars
Suggestions
by Emilio C. Ramos on 2018/07/19 19:55
I don’t know if you actually read these but I have few suggestions that would make iMovie much more convenient to use: - time lapse option ( other than 2x speed ) So I draw a lot so I decided to record my art progress, but i end up getting more than a half hour of footage, that means when i set everything to 2x speed i end up with still a lot of video left. I would rather not use a third-party app just to get that function, mostly because of the inconvenience, time-consumption, and the chances of my video quality getting worse. - copying video data to iMovie What I’m talking about is deleting videos that are being used in your movie. I once made a full video and decided to get rid of the space before I uploaded my movie and i was so upset that my movie was forever ruined. Maybe you could let people delete their photos and videos in their album and have it in their movie simultaneously? If not, it would still be nice if that could be prevented. For example, when you decide to delete a video/photo in the photo album, it shows a warning stating, “This video is being used in iMovie, are you sure you want to delete it?”, or stating a warning in the iMovie app itself. I hope you can use these suggestions in any future updates, I would be so grateful!

BEST MOVIE MAKER APP EVER!! But...
by Kelsta1023 on 2018/03/18 02:34
This is the best app ever! its almost complety perfect! But if you could add filters like rain or water droplits ( sorry if i spelled anything wrong!) and can you also add more sound effects like meowing cats & hissing, a river runing and a crowd wipering and talking? it would be the best!! i’ll give it 5 stars if you do!!!also can you make it so you can change the color of the text?? There is this one thing that i really think you guys should fix; when you delete a video or picture, it says that you need to get it back or the movie wont play, like for example: what if you run out of room on your camera and those pictures and videos are the only ones that you can delete but you have a movie with those pics and vids then what? Please fix this bug and add more sound effects and filters!! Thank you!!!!!
AMAZING! ❤️
by Plz respond to this 🙏 on 2019/07/19 01:50
Idk why so many reviews are hating on this app! It has so many options to edit with and make it perfect. I’ve downloaded probably hundreds of editing apps. Not kidding! And this is by far the best. I have absolutely no glitches at all! And the trailer option is really clever! I was addicted to making the trailers when I was younger! Now I use it for more professional purposes, but it’s still really fun! And iMovie is also incredibly easy to use!!! All other editing apps are so complicated, but this one is very easy to understand, yet still has so much stuff to play around with! So, yeah. I would recommend this to EVERYONE! Whether you want to make fun trailers, edit things, make a music video, etc. Thank you developers of iMovie for making this app! It’s definitely changed my life! ❤️❤️❤️
Far from the best
by SwiftlyMichelle on 2019/10/12 19:49
Sure, it’s easy to put a few videos together with some nice music in the background. The layout, however, could use some work. It doesn’t let you overlay photos on top of each other, like most movie making softwares do - at least not on the mobile version. Once an audio is detached from the video, if you delete the video, the audio gets deleted as well unless you move it away from the video. If you try and split a photo or video, it moves it back to the beginning of the video and unselects it when you try and scroll, making it virtually impossible to cut a photo in half. On top of all that, the app crashes every now and then and, unless you manually save a project, it will get deleted. iMovie has saved me now and again since it’s fast and easy to use, but for anyone wanting to make a more complex video: don’t even waste your time with it.
Laggy and extremely frustrating
by RENAY_SMITH on 2019/01/20 03:37
I went to download this app and it took longer than expected, okay I though, I went to load in the app to start learning about it and it was super laggy and extremely frustrating for me. For instance I would try to make a small movie and I went to change the color and it kicked me out of the app and my whole screen would turn black for a good 5 seconds. And even in the description it said “ capable on this iPhone,” than it would say something like “IPhone discontented, check connection” and I would wait until it loaded and check and it was fine. About a week later I got tired of it saying to check my connection so I went to the Apple store for them to have a look and all they said was next time it happens to restart the phone and I should be set. I reset my phone and it still does this please fix this weird glitch.
Worst video app ever
by tmobius on 2018/01/07 19:11
This is just an absolutely terrible excuse for a video editor app I’ve seen. I’m pretty disappointed that this is the best thing they could put on my $1000 iPhone X. This here is proof that Apple is more concerned putting your face on Emojis rather than create a user friendly phone that’s able to act as your computer. To be more specific about what’s wrong with the app: 1. It will not load the video when you click ‘edit’ through your photo gallery. 2. When you have a video that’s aligned vertically, it adds these stupid borders on the sides...let us control the aspect ratio! 3. When it adds those bars, it also crops your video and you can’t change a thing. 4. When saving slo-no videos, it adjusts the point where it slows down the video a couple seconds after you originally had it. Actually put thought into your apps, Apple. Especially if they are going to be feature of one of the most expensive phones on the market. This goes for all of them, not just iMovie.

How to get IMOVIE (After Latest Update)

If you’ve been using IMovie & been locked out after the iOS 13 update here is the solution.. It’s called (PandaHelper).. download this 3rd party app, allow it to run with you’re settings & once it’s installed you can download IMovie from their App Store.. I’ve done a lot of research on this issue & this was the only resolution I’ve found..I hope it helps you like it helped me :)
Glitches Too Much
by Mikial G on 2020/01/19 06:18
I’ve used this app for awhile and the glitches keep getting worse. Very hard to edit using this app.

It's really bad super confusing it takes up all my space and I had to delete roblox and my editing app for this app and it's so annoying
Awesome!
by Victuna Burns on 2020/01/18 14:07
I’ve been using iMovie for years to make movies, and YouTube videos, and it is great! I like the sound effects, and new background music they added! What I wish there was though, is if there were more filters. I do like the filters now, but I just wish there were more. Also, if I could make clips shorter than 0.4 seconds. Maybe going into the hundredths, like 0.01? I’ve really wanted to make some kind of animation, but all the animation apps have let me down. Anyways, iMovie is so far, the best app I’ve used to make movies! I recommend this app for beginner movie creators!!!
Portrait Mode! It’s 2020
by UrbanUnbound.com on 2020/01/18 09:18
What the hell Apple? Stories are a major way people share videos yet you still after over a decade don’t permit portrait mode. Use your fortune to provide a little bit of value to your users rather than plot how to program our phones to break 20 months in.
I love iMovie but whyyy
by donjaay on 2020/01/18 05:51

I should really get an Android
by Triggered fan on 2020/01/17 23:07
iMovie was almost half decent for a while, and I was able to download older versions, but now I updated my operating system, and they won’t let me download the old versions anymore, so now I can’t use it because my phone’s too old for the new version.
The Ios Update
by jiminlpabo on 2020/01/17 16:00
I really enjoy imovie, but sadly you have to have the updated version. I use an ipod since my phone broke and now I can’t edit my videos, please fix this.
missing some features

How do I remove the black bars

I need to know how to remove the black bars when I make the video wish someone can tell me how
VERTICAL FORMAT!!!!!!!!!
by Captainbeardbeard!! on 2020/01/17 05:14
I love this app. I use it for allll my video editing. But can you PLEASE MAKE A VERTICAL VIDEO FORMAT. I want to upload vertical videos to IGTV but I don’t like the black side on the video. I try to find apps that cut the sides off but then the quality goes down and it doesn’t look good. It would be great if there was a way to choose between making a horizontal and a vertical video. I love all the features and how simple it is to edit but still make professional looking videos. LOVE THIS APP. BUT PLEASEEEEE VERTICAL VIDEOS!
Not that good
by Dean Boehle on 2020/01/17 04:16
There are a lot better video editing apps out there. This one is way to glitchy.
Good but don’t like this change..
by yunahb1 on 2020/01/17 03:34
I love iMovie but I don’t like this change about this IOS...I have lower i just want the old version. Don’t get me wrong iMovie is a great app.
Why did they do this
by F34r5yth on 2020/01/17 02:47
It’s sad that I can’t use iMovie anymore because I have a YouTube channel and iMovie is how I edit my Videos so if they can just let us use it without 13.0 that would be great
Imovies amazing
by VerticalKyro on 2020/01/16 22:22
Imovies a Really good editing mobile app u can make montages cut videos together and it’s so fun! But sadly mobile can’t make thumbnails yet.I Love this app even tho sometimes it takes long to upload a video but otherwise this app is amazing for editing
One Problem
by DeadlyQynDuh on 2020/01/16 18:24
I love almost every feature of IMovie except this one When you insert a photo it moves around like can you not add this feature because it is annoying when make videos...
Confusing
by DMH1971 on 2020/01/16 11:48
I don’t really like using this as much as KineMaster because adding text and the overall look and feel of it is just hard for me to use
just awful.
by sup3r87 on 2020/01/16 06:23
I’m not provided much other for video editing by my school or my Waller besides iMovie, which is a shame. Literally everything is wrong, my one friend’s audio was cluttered during his project because moving something jumbles everything up. I’m working on a school project and videos that I CROPPED AND DUPLICATED get AUTO UNCROPPED when I import them, so I can’t work on my project. It’s also hard to search for effects, you can’t have more than one object on the screen, you can’t choose where text goes and when besides constantly on an entire picture.. even making a family photo collage is a pain with iMovie. Get yourself a better video editor if you’re thinking about making anything that works, even if it costs money. It’s worth it to escape the worst app Apple ever made.

I love this app I use it for many things but I just have 1 thing with apple music I download songs on my phone all! The! Time! But I can never use them I can only use songs I have purchased. But besides that I would just want all the things the Mac does because I don’t feel like filming with iPad/phone and then having to send all the pictures and videos to my Mac just because I want 1 transition it’s kind of Tiring but otherwise I use it and love it 👌🏻

Crashing lately and voice recording
by LoneSurvivorYT on 2020/01/15 15:54
I’m obsessed with this app but I’m also upset it flashes a black screen then crashes the the home screen. And when i voice record it does not move and it even goes back and freezes.
Can’t Get It Back! :(
by slimemaster39 on 2020/01/15 05:18
So, I love this app its just I can’t get it back. I really did try getting it back it just won’t let me. Although, I would love to use this app. :( Still, an amazing app. But please help me get it back!

I’ve been using I movie for a long time, and it works very well. But now, you have to have iOS 13, which I don’t have.
Fun but...

I really hate it now!!
by Watis_this on 2020/01/15 01:44
I’ve been using this app in its early days and now it sh*t I’m sorry to say it but I was good at first it’s just bad no because every time I add a new video the screen goes black or it crashes and it’s getting me really mad about it and it’s so bad that it made me hate it so much
Ugh
by Flawless Tay on 2020/01/15 01:27
I always use iMovie but how am I supposed to if my phone doesn’t have iOS 13 apple you need to change this at least I have a iPhone this is not fair to me I really love iMovie and it’s stressing me out I’m trying to edit a video and I can’t even find the perfect app to edit I can only depend on iMovie🥴😔

I didn’t think I could do it all on my phone but I did! I thought I would need my laptop but it’s too out of date😬! So I thought I was screwed until I got the help! Thanx iMovie!🙏😇👏🏼😁

Won’t upload
by omfgallthenamesrtaken2 on 2020/01/13 19:31
This app seems to me a waste of time. I spent time making my movies but they wouldn’t upload. I turned off my phone and deleted and reloaded the app as suggested. All my movies were lost. I deleted the app again. I wouldn’t bother.
Bring IMovie Back
by Talyah J Youtuber on 2020/01/13 17:50
I have been using IMovie for over a year now and it is a really great app but all of sudden it deleted off my iPhone 6s and says that I need IOS 13.0 or later. I used IMovie for my YouTube channel Talyah and I really need this app back on my phone so I can do YouTube again for my over 1,000 subscribers. Is anyone else having this problem with the app? Before I used IMovie, I was using this app called Reaction.Cam it was also a really great app but that app also got deleted or disabled. Please bring these apps back! Please ASAP! I don’t have any other apple products only my iPhone and using my phone is a big priority for my YouTube Channel.
it’s come to this
by Adri79194 on 2020/01/13 17:07
i love using imovie, but lately, it’s been terrible. it crashes and takes forever to load, as well as you can’t use videos that have been previously deleted. i never leave reviews but i’m so annoyed i felt i had to.
This app makes me want to buy a Samsung
by Patrick_Walsh on 2020/01/13 03:03
I hate this app. I’m working on a school project, and every time I upload a picture to the iMovie, it cuts off the top and bottom of the picture. When I pinch to try and zoom out the picture it messes up the alignment of the photo. I don’t suggest this app at all, as it is not user friendly.
Some bugs that need to be fixed
by Charlie and eternity and sarah on 2020/01/13 01:25
This app is really good. The only thing wrong with it is it just freezes a lot, and sometimes it exits the application please fix this please
This is sad
by Aydan Guzman on 2020/01/13 01:11
You can’t make your own music unless of the trashy music tracks. You would have to record a song then put it over your videos. This app is very sad.
Decent
by Gav1216 on 2020/01/12 23:13
iMovie is a great app and I’ve done lots of amazing things with it. However, my movie went black, and I couldn’t access any of the clips, or the audio. I couldn’t save the video, much less export it to anything. Spending lots of time on a video just to have it delete itself is motivation-depleting, and I don’t want to spend 30 minutes trying to record everything again.
it’s the greatest app ever

Fallen from greatness!
by Travel112488 on 2020/01/12 20:35
This used to be my favorite app. Ever since the last update however, it has become the most stress inducing app on my phone. It tells me that I don’t have enough space to export my videos even though I have plenty. It won’t allow me to even open certain files anymore altogether. This thing is terrible now. I hate to give it up, simply because of some of the editing features that I have grown to love, but I can’t do it anymore. And there seems like there is no real effort to relieve any of these issues.
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.
Not so good
by naynay queen on 2020/01/12 17:17
It is not letting me download iMovie anymore and I need it for a very important day I have for work and it in two week so apple please help me have iMovie back

iMovie
by Olivia.Magg on 2020/01/12 15:48
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!!
Can’t re-download

App Doesn’t Work for me anymore

I love this app but it doesn’t work for me anymore. I have an iPad Mini 2 and I can’t afford to upgrade. I can’t update it anymore and it needs iOS 13 to download. I loved creating fun videos with this app and i’m sad I can’t use it anymore.

Please Read
by PotatoElf on 2020/01/12 02:11
When I started using this in 2016 I used it all the time but now I can’t because it isnt Avilable to my device which is very annoying and is annoying me off but if your looking for a review of my experience I really liked all the features and it was really easy to use for those of us who are not good at editing videos for YouTube But now I can’t use it and I dont even know what editing app to use now because all of them are super complicated and have huge watermarks at the bottom of the screen So I really only have one request... please make another editing app like this but without all the features of the IOS 13 update for those of us with the IPhone 6 or 5 But I’ll probably find something else to use until I have enough money to buy a better device but by the time that happens it won’t even be compatible LOL
Much better then Clips
by willa_m on 2020/01/12 02:10
I have been using iMovie for a long time and have had great results. I recently tried Clips and got very frustrated because I wasn’t getting what I needed out of it which was simply combining multiple clips. I don’t know why it wasn’t working but with iMovie it worked fine and I got a good final product.
Glitches
by JollyPanther on 2020/01/12 00:08
iMovie glitches so much! I always use it to edit my videos, but then sometimes, it doesn’t let me and the video just turns black. And it’s JUST for that video! The other videos work just fine, but also, the timings are so weird! Sometimes I just edit and then BOOM, my cursor just goes to a random location in the video, then the edits that I already done just disappear!! But still, it works fine for projects that are minimal and don’t require too much editing, and it’s free so that’s why I use it.
Use it every day!
by robert utha on 2020/01/12 00:06
I love it but some ideas I want so this is 4 star ratings, Okay there needs to be sifi trailers, more things on the movies. Also edit more things with the intros for trailers
Good app
by rainbow tangerine on 2020/01/11 23:51

Mixed feelings🤔
by S.Ha. on 2020/01/11 22:13
To start off, its a really great app for making simple fun movies. But it has some flaws. For one, it you delete a video or photo on your camera roll, it does not save it on iMovie. Then you can’t access any of the movie or trailer😢. But other wise I would recommend this app. I think we should credit for it’s easy functions.
Ehhhh…
by i tryed a lot of apodos on 2020/01/11 22:06

This app is ok
by gracen$$$$$$$$$$jhnmk on 2020/01/11 21:11
There are only a few things to choose from and it’s really difficult and complicated use it takes a long long time and it is difficult to make your own movies and trailers and for the movie you can’t even make your own you have to make little clips at a time what is the point.And it’s really low rated and you cannot find it on the App Store it’s like it’s not even there I’m sorry😔😢
Irrelevant app - no support for vertical/ portrait orientation videos
by Mirocal on 2020/01/11 20:06
Apple, who do you think shoots then edits for wide screen with your puny iMovie!? Serious projects are edited on desktop, so whom do you target this app to? To no one. Deleting these clogging bits, bye.
Bad Timing
by rgkrceofbe on 2020/01/11 19:15
When I’m editing a reaction, I try to line up the music video when I unpaused and stuff perfectly but then it either just goes forward or it overlaps onto the other clips before it and it’s so annoying. I uninstalled it for this it’s so annoying I hate it. And the video itself goes really slow. Like it goes a normal speed but the clip in the editing software at the bottom looks so slow, like 1 minute takes up nothing of the video at the bottom
Ok for basics but need to restart phone after each use

Trash ... where are all the features of the desktop version?
by Dragon master k on 2020/01/11 05:10
Can add text intermittently through your videos without cutting up your whole video since there is no time control on text and titles like the desktop version. Can’t change text fonts or colors. Just garbage downgrade from the original version, and way to hard to edit videos. If you want to make a super simple video that’s dated...this is perfect for you.

Download
by official_christine05 on 2020/01/11 01:19
The app is great for editing like adding music and text, but my problem about this app is I uninstalled it to make room on my phone, but when I went to the App Store and tried to look up the app it didn’t show. The next day I tried it and it still didn’t appear so then I went to safari to see if I can’t download it off the internet and the first thing that popped up was the app and under it an install button so I clicked on it and it sent me here. When the app showed up the install button was faded out so I couldn’t press it so I decided to write to you to see if you can do anything about it.
I love it!!!

This app gave me my first D in Science Class
by Formal App Critic on 2020/01/09 19:03
ATTENTION PLEASE READ BELOW!! Since this app is one of the only free ones available I have been using for a few years, and it has always met my needs. However in the past month, this app has been extremely frustrating and unreliable. The audio never lines up and sometimes doesn't let you even edit clips when attached to a pic. Because of this app I have had multiple assignments I was forced to turn in late. I would rather pay money for a good reliable app then use this one for free.
Why do people not like this app
by patelmay on 2020/01/09 08:06
This app is the best and it works all the time so if you are wondering for a movie or trailer maker choose 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 😂

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.
This app is bad
by Ryno619720 on 2019/07/15 16:17
Lets start off with my first reason, this iMovie app does not allow you to have your own music so you cannot download a music track or song that you want unless you get a different app and share the music to iMovie but overall it is a hassle to do that. Second reason, this is also about the music deal, when I want to download a song, which I do from a great app Called documents, anyway when I do that it shows the song picture and then the music. You can detach the audio from the video or picture but you cannot delete the video or picture because if you delete either one of those it deletes the audio, that doesn’t make any sense why it does that. Third reason, it’s overall glitchy. For example when I want to add a picture it doesn’t give you the option to select things, which means you can select multiple pictures. It doesn’t have that Feature only at one period of time you can do that which is at the beginning. Fourth reason, when you want to do a trailer you do not have the option to edit what the trailer music is. For example I am a stop motion artist and I wanted to do a trailer for fun. But the last thing I wanted to do was add my own music, then I found out that you cannot add your own music. Wow that is also dumb.
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.
iMovie
by Olivia.Magg on 2020/01/12 15:48
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!!
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.
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
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! 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
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
a few things you really need to fix (READ)
by Sk8tr05 on 2018/02/10 17:32
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.
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.
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.
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
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!
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!!
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!
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
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!
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. 🤟🏻👋😍😁
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😑
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.
Future feature suggestions
by Blaze600 on 2019/08/18 16:08
This is by far one of the best mobile video editing apps out there! Super simple to use while being quite powerful at the same time! I do however have couple feature suggestions that would make the app even better. ———————— Needs the ability to apply stabilization to videos. Similar to how you can in iMovie & Final Cut Pro on macOS. Processors in our iPhones & iPads are at a point now that I believe they should be able to handle this without issue. Video timeline needs to be more robust. Such has being able to stack content as you can on the Mac version. This one may already be in the works but ounce iOS 13 releases, there needs be an option to import files/content into iMovie from an external drive such as flash drive or HDD from right inside the app. This would allow for a much more efficient workflow for creators. This next one is sort of off the wall & doesn't pertain to iMovie entirely but I really think we need to have a mobile version of Final Cut Pro that could be used with the new iPad pros. One that has most if not all the features available in the desktop version. Again, I think we are at a point where mobile processors could handle something like this with ease! I can just imagine being able to edit Pro level video on an iPad Pro in final cut, that would be awesome!
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.
Awesome editor but can use some suggestions
by Skilled Wolf on 2017/11/25 23:46
First of all I love this app I use this to edit my wolf shleich videos. But I think it can use some suggestions like: Maybe you can add a feature that allows you to connect to itunes and you can choose a song and put it in your video in any section. And maybe put more stuff like: particals (choose shape size color and what type of partical such as: sparkles, smoke, dust, fog, oh, and what do you want it to do: lay on the ground or float. And maybe a disapearing affect like you can choose something to make disapear and you click on it it disapears and the disapearing apears in the video. And you can choose hoe it disapears: slow or fast. And maybe a glowing affect choose something to make light up click and poof (trace the item with the glow) choose the color like:yellow black bluse red etc. overall its a great app ✌🏻✌️🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Ok but could be better
by Aninha19t on 2019/09/02 15:08
I love how I movie is the easiest thing to work with for projects. I love how it gives examples for trailers and sparks ideas. I also love how it is fun to make funny videos or trailers for movies. Now I don’t normally take the time to write reviews but when I was downloading iMovie on my phone I saw that it had 3.9 stars and it broke my heart. iMovie is an absolute awesome app that you can easily get addicted to it. A thing that they could make a little better was the titles. The title can get really annoying because you enter/return when you want to go down. This annoys the heck out of me because how many times do you want to go down but you can’t. I used to hate how they didn’t have green screen but I am really happy with the fact that they added it. I am so pleased with IMovie and I am excited to get working with it again.
What the heck did you do to iMovie???
by GLOSSYI'D on 2018/11/11 02:18
It was glitchy and buggy before but it is almost unusable now? I have the freakin iPhoneX and cannot even edit ONE movie and audio clip without it being glitched. I cut the music track, it doesn’t show a cut? I have to save exit edit again to see the cut? Then what I slow down or speed up in the video portion of it is off from what I review to what’s saved?? I watch the saved file only to find it is NOT how I edited it at all? This WAS a great Apple program. Easy to use and simple enough to edit, cut, patch, paste, ect last year. I re-downloaded it again last night only to see that not only are the previous bugs still around, they’ve become bunnies and reproduced lots more into TONS of problems and bugs now?? Undo it. Please fix it. Seriously annoyed, I cannot even make one movie project without the app freezing and requiring a restart? Come on Apple, I would think that the company who makes the iPhone would have the primary software/app that’s more compatible to the phone than third party software makers??
It’s okay😐
by dawgs18 on 2018/03/12 15:38
iMovie is really fun but after a while it gets really boring just doing the same trailers over and over again, it would be nice if you could add some of the trailers that the computer has like epic drama or love story. Another idea is that you should add a trailer that like glitches on like the places where you can put the picture and then I glitches to another picture. Also do you think it would be possible to start adding iMovie to androids and tablets? Like Samsung or something else. Oh and here’s one last suggestion maybe you should let the people choose how long the trailers are going to be and how many people are going to be in the trailer. Just like in the teen trailer you should be able to add more cast members to that because what if there is more people on in venture after school ended and it was a long trip and there was more than four people. Anyways thank you for your time and sorry if this is very long for you.
I love this app, but...
by Stikbot goodie on 2018/07/16 16:42
This app is amazing! I use it almost everyday. This is probably the best user friendly editing app you can get for mobile. And it doesn’t even try to sell you up to the “full version” or “no ads” kinda thing. It doesn’t even have ads! The reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is because when I was working on a movie, the app crashed, I went back in, and all my audio was in the wrong places, and every clip randomly ended in black! Even though I figured out how to MANUALLY fix it all, it was not a fun process. Also, when I recorded a video with the new screen recorder feature with a voiceover imbedded in it, when I put it iMovie, the voiceover wasn’t there! And it wasn’t a problem with the video itself, because I checked it in my camera roll! (Please update iMovie to be able to work with the screen recorder feature.) But other than that, great app.
2 bothersome things
by Hydra Power on 2018/06/18 14:10
iMovie is a great IOS editor don’t get me wrong but their are two things that makes me give 4 stars instead of 5 stars. First off the text options are horrible in my opinion, you only get a few set options with annoying transitions. The text also can’t change size, color, font, or move around/place on the video/photo, most editors have these basic options it is weird to see a corporation like apple not implant these features to a basic editor. Photos also cannot be placed on videos for some odd reason, and again most basic editors have these options. But all that side, iMovie is great and did most things right like cropping and photo/video transitions. The app also comes with great sound effects. The app could add more advance options for professional editors but I understand it’s just trying to be a basic editor so, I excuse iMovie for that.
I am crying right now
by Lillylolx on 2019/03/07 03:35
Good for SMALL projects guys please don’t use this for anything school related because my project is due tomorrow, I thought it would be nice to go above and beyond so I thought I would use iMovie to make a cool movie presentation for class. I had so much homework, and I worked on this project (7 minutes long) for 4 hours straight. I was so tired at the end, but I added funny pictures and I thought it was so worth it. I was showing my friend, proud of my work, and she suggests I add some booing sound affect to one of the clips. I thought it was a good idea. But I clicked the sound, applied it, and then... all of the audio. Shifted. To the beginning of the video. All of the over voices. It was so late. I don’t want to keep going and fix it. I know I should persevere, but I’m so tired... I just want to go to bed. I don’t even like that class... I swear I’m going to drop out. So guys, don’t use it for an important school or work video that is longer than 7 minutes. And if you REALLY have to resort to it, please, do not try to add any sound affects such as booing or clapping. Thank you.
Good once all your progress is gone
by TurtleLady3345 on 2018/01/28 03:37
So I used this on three different devices and this happened on all of them. iPhone 8, iPhone SE, and iPad Pro. Say I’ve been working on editing a video for about 30 minutes. Then, you go to cut one of your audio files or video. Then you see that it shows in grey(means that tool isn’t available for that type of format or something), Even when you know that it is possible to cut video or audio. Once the app realizes it messed up, it will just erase everything. When you try to play the video, it just comes up with black and no audio. I hate this so much because it only happened when you worked on it for a long time. The reason I’m barely writing this now even though it’s been happening for a while is because I’ve tried to make the same video three times and then I decided to finally write a review. It has good features for an app. I get that using the app restricts you but, it’s fine. Please. Please. Please, fix it. But yeah. I hate you iMovie.
The best video app, but needs improvement
by Victoawesome on 2019/07/12 01:25
I couldn’t have asked for a better editing experience, especially since most other apps trick you for your money. I love iMovie and it’s literally the best editing app on the go, but if you can move things it would be better. Moving text in your videos and moving green screen images would be so helpful. For example, I can make text smaller or bigger when I need it and I can move it in a certain place to not block a part of a video. And for the green screen I want to be able to move the green screened video and drag it to a certain area. And what would also be cool is if I can drag the green screened video and it could track and item, so for example, if I had an apple in my hands, I can have a video of a hot dog in a green screen to replace the Apple and it could follow it’s movements, I think it would be so helpful.
Long overdue for a significant update
by aquasloth on 2018/04/08 13:52
Works well, easy to put together a decent video in a short amount of time. However, some features and options that should have been introduced a long time ago are still absent. Compare the significant updates made to the GarageBand app to this. Still can’t change aspect ratios, frame rates, or even simple placement of titles on the screen. Can’t change font or color of titles. What if I don’t want every title to fade in? There’s countless apps that will do chroma key or stop motion animation, sure, but couldn’t these features be easily implemented in iMovie? Since we can use AUV3 effects in GarageBand, why can’t we use them in iMovie’s audio tracks? Effects and filters are limited, no split-screen or picture-in-picture, no color correction or contrast/brightness settings...makes me appreciate apps like LumaFusion, LumaFX, and even Pinnacle Studio even more, and those apps are developed and updated by much smaller development staff. Please take the time to grow this app!
Amazing BUT just ONE thing
by come on no free girls on 2018/07/30 17:13
I love this app!! it was the first editing app I had!! it’s is Amazing BUT can you put more music for vids!! I love it btw but I want that to change because I want to post vids like other people! but I always wonder where to get the music? and I have thousands of app for editing vids but one has amazing music but I don’t think I will use it because it has its name on the bottom!! this one is amazing and is smart enough to know not to put the name of the app on the bottom!! PLEASE change that please I’m begging you please!! Btw I love it it’s amazing please reply and change it will be AWESOME only if you add more music to it! But either way the other apps are only good this one is Amazing I want it to be AWESOME it will be if you add more music please do LOVE IT😂 Thank you for taking you time to read😃 -Cindi
Things I would like
by Salty-Susan on 2018/11/08 22:43
I would like to have green screen added I’ve looked at some other editing softwares and they have green screen but they have watermarks which I dislike So it would be nice if you added green screen also I would like it if you could pick the area to use green screen on like if you only wanted the background then click the background or for it to register hot pink, dark blue, green to change for green screen It would also be nice if you added different fonts and different colors for them Because when I have a white background it just sometimes doesn’t show So I would like different colors And for the fonts I’m getting pretty bored of the same font so it would be nice if there was more I would also appreciate if there was a option to stop the app from automatically taking my pictures and making them 6 seconds long and if there was a option to make the transitions stop automatically going to fade and etc because for me I animate on this app and I use picture by picture and I spend most of my time putting the pictures to .4 seconds and changing the transition It would also be nice to have a setting to turn of ken burns cause it gets annoying sometimes also being able to add more audio and see them would be nice and adding videos to over lap same with pictures It would be appreciated if theses were added
Needs to be updated but still a good app
by I do my research on 2018/07/21 18:34
iMovie is a really great app and is the best movie making app out of all of them but it really needs to be updated and have new content added to it and bug fixes! Sometimes there will glitch while you’re editing it and it will freeze, when this happens I have exited out but then it won’t let me continue editing it it just exits out when I do! It lets me edit everything else except the one project that had the glitch! And the thing is you would expect maybe this is happening cause my software isn’t up to date or that my iPad model is older but my iPad is brand new and my software is up to date!! I don’t know how to fix it and I don’t think there is anyone I can email and I had been working so hard on the project to so it’s kinda annoying! But it is a good app it just needs some tweaks! I would probably either give it like a three point five or four stars
Suggestions
by Emilio C. Ramos on 2018/07/19 19:55
I don’t know if you actually read these but I have few suggestions that would make iMovie much more convenient to use: - time lapse option ( other than 2x speed ) So I draw a lot so I decided to record my art progress, but i end up getting more than a half hour of footage, that means when i set everything to 2x speed i end up with still a lot of video left. I would rather not use a third-party app just to get that function, mostly because of the inconvenience, time-consumption, and the chances of my video quality getting worse. - copying video data to iMovie What I’m talking about is deleting videos that are being used in your movie. I once made a full video and decided to get rid of the space before I uploaded my movie and i was so upset that my movie was forever ruined. Maybe you could let people delete their photos and videos in their album and have it in their movie simultaneously? If not, it would still be nice if that could be prevented. For example, when you decide to delete a video/photo in the photo album, it shows a warning stating, “This video is being used in iMovie, are you sure you want to delete it?”, or stating a warning in the iMovie app itself. I hope you can use these suggestions in any future updates, I would be so grateful!

BEST MOVIE MAKER APP EVER!! But...
by Kelsta1023 on 2018/03/18 02:34
This is the best app ever! its almost complety perfect! But if you could add filters like rain or water droplits ( sorry if i spelled anything wrong!) and can you also add more sound effects like meowing cats & hissing, a river runing and a crowd wipering and talking? it would be the best!! i’ll give it 5 stars if you do!!!also can you make it so you can change the color of the text?? There is this one thing that i really think you guys should fix; when you delete a video or picture, it says that you need to get it back or the movie wont play, like for example: what if you run out of room on your camera and those pictures and videos are the only ones that you can delete but you have a movie with those pics and vids then what? Please fix this bug and add more sound effects and filters!! Thank you!!!!!
AMAZING! ❤️
by Plz respond to this 🙏 on 2019/07/19 01:50
Idk why so many reviews are hating on this app! It has so many options to edit with and make it perfect. I’ve downloaded probably hundreds of editing apps. Not kidding! And this is by far the best. I have absolutely no glitches at all! And the trailer option is really clever! I was addicted to making the trailers when I was younger! Now I use it for more professional purposes, but it’s still really fun! And iMovie is also incredibly easy to use!!! All other editing apps are so complicated, but this one is very easy to understand, yet still has so much stuff to play around with! So, yeah. I would recommend this to EVERYONE! Whether you want to make fun trailers, edit things, make a music video, etc. Thank you developers of iMovie for making this app! It’s definitely changed my life! ❤️❤️❤️
Far from the best
by SwiftlyMichelle on 2019/10/12 19:49
Sure, it’s easy to put a few videos together with some nice music in the background. The layout, however, could use some work. It doesn’t let you overlay photos on top of each other, like most movie making softwares do - at least not on the mobile version. Once an audio is detached from the video, if you delete the video, the audio gets deleted as well unless you move it away from the video. If you try and split a photo or video, it moves it back to the beginning of the video and unselects it when you try and scroll, making it virtually impossible to cut a photo in half. On top of all that, the app crashes every now and then and, unless you manually save a project, it will get deleted. iMovie has saved me now and again since it’s fast and easy to use, but for anyone wanting to make a more complex video: don’t even waste your time with it.
Laggy and extremely frustrating
by RENAY_SMITH on 2019/01/20 03:37
I went to download this app and it took longer than expected, okay I though, I went to load in the app to start learning about it and it was super laggy and extremely frustrating for me. For instance I would try to make a small movie and I went to change the color and it kicked me out of the app and my whole screen would turn black for a good 5 seconds. And even in the description it said “ capable on this iPhone,” than it would say something like “IPhone discontented, check connection” and I would wait until it loaded and check and it was fine. About a week later I got tired of it saying to check my connection so I went to the Apple store for them to have a look and all they said was next time it happens to restart the phone and I should be set. I reset my phone and it still does this please fix this weird glitch.
Worst video app ever
by tmobius on 2018/01/07 19:11
This is just an absolutely terrible excuse for a video editor app I’ve seen. I’m pretty disappointed that this is the best thing they could put on my $1000 iPhone X. This here is proof that Apple is more concerned putting your face on Emojis rather than create a user friendly phone that’s able to act as your computer. To be more specific about what’s wrong with the app: 1. It will not load the video when you click ‘edit’ through your photo gallery. 2. When you have a video that’s aligned vertically, it adds these stupid borders on the sides...let us control the aspect ratio! 3. When it adds those bars, it also crops your video and you can’t change a thing. 4. When saving slo-no videos, it adjusts the point where it slows down the video a couple seconds after you originally had it. Actually put thought into your apps, Apple. Especially if they are going to be feature of one of the most expensive phones on the market. This goes for all of them, not just iMovie.
