Heres an honest Review
by Kara Landley on 2021/01/21 23:19
Hello My name is Anna and I love this app. It is a very good and decent app and I really enjoy it. Its great to edit videos and photos. But if you are looking for an app for stop motion this is not it. Trust me ive tried. I do suggest Stop motion pro 4.99$ app store if you would like to make one. Anyway, there are endless possibilities and It is my too pic for my videos the transitions, Filters, extra editing utensils are insanely incredible. Have a great day and enjoy iMovie if you get it, which I suggest. Thanks for reading! (Kepp it up imovie! :)
It’s great but downside to it
by ooohemad on 2021/01/21 22:23
Multiple people have this problem and it’s that the screen blacks out and you can only see the text and I’m extremely mad because this was a gaming video and i had no time to figure out how to fix it it was supposed to be a birthday montage and I guess my special b-day video is ruined

Fallen from greatness!
by Travel112488 on 2021/01/21 04:35
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.
Amazing
by acedrags on 2021/01/21 04:26
One of my friends has this app and made a movie with it. I’m planning on making a family movie with it. Absolutely amazing. Thx devs, I shall honor your hard work on this amazing app
good but annoying
by akdudidudhhxbxbx on 2021/01/21 03:49
i tried to download my video, but it didn’t work because it said that my storage was full. i literally had to delete half of my apps, and most of my very important photos with FAMILY. ridiculous.
Worst app ever
by #Taylor Swift on 2021/01/21 03:48
This app is the worst app ever because sometime it won’t do what you want it to do and it’s SOO annoying I recommend NEVER getting this app EVER, I HATE IT!!!!!!!!
Why can I get a still picture
by Jdnenejisoxiss on 2021/01/20 23:14
I hate how this app does a stupid automatic panoramic feature when I just want my photo to be still. Plz fix this.
A nice app
by Catty Nanav🐱 on 2021/01/20 22:00
No bad problems! NONE! This app contains lots of trailers themes, (I posted some on YouTube,) And so easy! The movie creating? People think this doesn’t save? Well? It doesn’t on my side. I’ve been working on Nacho Saves and it is LLLLLLOOOOONNNNGGGG. 45 mins! And it saved. For those of you who said it didn’t save, probably update your app or develop a new iOS. This is a nice app, I would keep it to do it for my Amanda and Janie soon!
BAD
by Loraita on 2021/01/20 21:41
I wish I could give it no stars. It keeps deleting everything! I was about to finish my project for my class and I tried to add one more picture and it deleted my voice through the whole thing!
I LOVE THIS APP!!
by App Reviews & More! on 2021/01/20 21:36
I use iMovie to edit all of my YouTube videos for my small YouTube channel. I love it!! It’s easy to use if you’re new to editing but also has a ton of useful features that everyone will appreciate. Great job with this one Apple!!
So...
by AntBoi07895 on 2021/01/20 21:11
I have been using this app for a few years now, and then out of nowhere all the sudden you can’t upload directly to YouTube anymore so that’s the reason I rated it four stars so please bring it back it’s annoying
Frank Kratos
by Frank Kratos on 2021/01/20 20:36
I can’t upload my videos in 4K format to YouTube it doesn’t have the app extension to send it over to export it anymore ever since I movie updated a few weeks back they need to get this fixed it’s valuable to me in my channel
Should be allowed to crop vertical videos
by Thenoy123454 on 2021/01/20 19:56
I use iMovie mostly for my YouTube videos but when I make Instagram skits I should be able to make a vertical video without having to crop it and loose resolution
So good!
by Olivia Grl on 2021/01/20 17:04
First of all, I have TikTok and I make edits. This app helps,so good, it is so easy and looks so professional! And I’ve seen other reviews, and first of all this is APPLE. Why so bad reviews? But overall I really enjoy this app, and think it’s lots of fun!

More Trailers
by SuperQB14 bre on 2021/01/20 12:45
Hello I have been using this app for a while now, maybe two or so years, and I think it would be beneficial to add more trailer themes.
Really Inspiring Honestly!
by 5/5👍🏻 on 2021/01/20 09:56
This App is just so amazing! It is a perfect video editor! It really inspired me! Please keep up the good work!
Good but some bugs
by YTjoewell on 2021/01/20 03:29
I use this to edit my YouTube videos and I use it to the maximum at the same time I get audio glitches when I download my video sine audios will be a couple seconds late a lot and I would like you to please fix this and add more context and features to the app
Five star🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩
by Kami 😘💎❤️ on 2021/01/20 02:03
I love to make the trailers with my best friend. There is a lot of choices for the theme . I just in general, LOVE this app.
Add Blur feature available for MacOS
by NJ816 on 2021/01/20 00:28
Ima make a bug (not really a bug) by dropping the resolution in the video (blurring the video), but I can’t do that on iOS. It is only on MacOS. Can you add the blur title available for MacOS on iOS?
Really, really, really buggy
by DominusPhoenix on 2021/01/19 23:17
I’ve been using this app as my go-to app for editing simple videos and simple montages. But now I’ve started considering other alternatives because of the bugginess of the app. Sometimes I split a clip and it randomly while I’m still splitting the clip it randomly switches to a random part of the video messing up the sync.
Good game and yes

Cannot Select photos
by Does it connect on 2021/01/19 20:54
This app is great and all, but I’ve been having some issues. Ever since the last iMovie update, I have been unable to select photos when adding at any time. I can open the photos tab, but when I select a photo, nothing happens at all. I can select videos though. I would be really happy and thankful when this gets fixed.
ruining my videos
by jhockey48 on 2021/01/19 20:25
I go into iMovie to save some old videos I made, and am given a “videos may be downloading from iCloud” prompt when I click them. Initially, I can still watch the video with the audio and everything. I go back to it after viewing a different video and am given the same prompt, and now I have NO AUDIO. I go into the edit mode where all the audio is still beneath my thumbnails, but despite cranking my volume, turning my ringer on, and restarting the app, my audio is gone. If I put time and effort into these videos and my audio is completely erased, then you’ve essentially ruined what I’ve made. This is a joke. I waited an entire day for the “downloads” to happen and nothing has improved. This iCloud “optimize” feature has ruined several videos I’ve made. What are you doing???
It’s good enough
by JadenRin906 on 2021/01/19 19:49
It’s pretty good editing software but it is extremely limited. It is good for editing a simple video but you won’t see any advanced effects or overlays. You’ll have to overlay it yourself using a green screen template.
Love but....

Please make uploading to YouTube available

Upload to YouTube option gone
by lovely kinley on 2021/01/18 21:07
So, I’m trying to upload this video onto YouTube, and why is the option not even there. Is this apart of the new update because if it is. It’s trash....
Doesn’t work at all
by Nadosstar on 2021/01/18 20:44
This app could’ve been better since it’s free. But after trying to export a video for work that was only 13 minutes long, the app wouldn’t let me.
Not the best
by Qwerty@$$$ on 2021/01/18 19:12
If you’re looking to make more professional looking videos this is not the best option, the music requires purchase, the frame slides in the video, and the controls are very confusing. Personally I would not recommend but it’s not the worst
Working fine for me
by whehwhehhe on 2021/01/18 18:18
I see all these complaints about it crashing and whatnot. Works fine for me. Just save the video and export to YouTube via computer. However, I wish there was a way to import downloaded songs from Spotify. I appreciate being able to slow down and change the volume of sound effects, so I can manipulate them to imitate other sounds not included on the app. Works well for a free mobile app.
I loved it until this update...
by mintyflower on 2021/01/18 17:20
The update where the video squares the line goes by slower and the video block it’s smaller when I make my YouTube videos and roblox edit it is super hard to use now

The transitions don’t work
by J problem on 2021/01/18 10:19
Now when you press the drag to position button it shows a brighter color. When unpressed it gets dark. Idk which is the true color. Nothing seems to work with the words but putting pictures and videos in. Now it doesn’t show the true color until you tap the video. And I don’t even know if that’s the true color!
Won’t let me save videos
by why is every mame taken on 2021/01/18 07:38
I have over 50 GBs of free storage on my phone but can’t save videos bc I don’t have enough storage.. so annoying
It’s good but needs more... stuff
by theDJperson on 2021/01/18 07:13
This app is simple and easy, very fun to use and also FREE but I would like if they can update the audio, like you can make your voice echo or deep or high Pitch. Other than that I think it’s a good start to editing :)
iMovie cannot download
by i'm mad that Imovie on 2021/01/18 04:40
It will never download
Great app, 1 major suggestion
by nickname11q1 on 2021/01/18 03:09
Overall, this app is great. If you need to edit a quick video, to editing a whole movie, this is the go to app. I do have a major suggestion that I’m not sure why it isn’t in this app yet, but we need to have just a simple text with no fade in or fade out. The titles are very good in the app, but they do not have any normal cutaway text. Apple, if you are somehow reading this, please add a feature too the titles section so there is a regular text option with no fancy “fade in” stuff. Thanks!
I love this but...
by candyblox29 on 2021/01/18 02:48
This app has been easy to use!! But..I can’t post on YouTube because when I click share I don’t find the YouTube button :<
It’s good, but I can’t use it.
by Luna Loves Tuna on 2021/01/18 02:36
I’m not usually one to use an iPad to edit and make videos, but if I don’t have any access to my computer, iMovie is a great alternative. However, with my IOS 12 iPad, I’m unable to download it. It gives me an option to download an older version of the app, which would be very helpful if it worked. I press “Yes”, it starts to download, but then after 20 minutes of waiting it goes black. Not the screen, just the app. Wth.
Won’t Export
by alyssamcadwell on 2021/01/17 21:20
I love this app, it’s great for making edits. My only problem (which is huge) is the fact that it won’t let me export my project. i’ve tried everything from deleting everything in my phone so that there was enough storage, to updating and restarting my phone. NOTHING WORKS. please fix this.

Let us adjust the aspect ratio and ill be happy
by madlyshhhhh on 2021/01/16 21:04
Imovie is a great and simple (and free), its the perfect editing software for beginners. There are some missing features that are crucial to an editing software such as changing the aspect ratio, color correction (customizable), and more. Those missing features set imovie back, but its still a great app nonetheless. (If your reading this Imovie review reading person, please add those features, thx :) )
Love it

How To Make This App Better
by chancepevans on 2021/01/16 14:38
I think that this app would be better if you can fix the problem with text that I have. I love iMovie so much but when I try to put text in - for some reason the effect for the text won’t work after I turn off capital letters or turn on the sound effect for the text. Also, I think there’s an error in the code or a bug or when the app was downloaded, some of the information of the app was replaced with something else or something. Another thing that happens is the sound effect for the text won’t play even when I turn it on.
Needs a few more things!
by MobD Gaming on 2021/01/16 13:46
Well iMovie is the loyal and best app I used ever since I started my YouTube channel. It is very easy to edit and cut , etc. . I you are new to iMovie then it would be easy. But what it needs is resizing green screens , more filters , and stickers and effects. I want to resize my green screen facecam but I can’t. I would love this feature. Then this isn’t very logical but the photos app has more control over the filters , looks , and colors of clips. And one last thing it needs stickers and effects. Well that is all thank you and please respond to this! Edit: please add Chroma key effect so I can remove background of videos and put it in picture-in-picture!
Very great app
by Claudybeats on 2021/01/16 11:45
Imovie is an awesome video editing app but one thing I would like you to add to it is other video resolutions, like 1:1, for Instagram and others.

?????
by ewdcfz v on 2021/01/15 17:08
Ok so this is not an app I downloaded T-Mobile did it for me on my iPhone 12 which i got yesterday yay! Btw I’m a kid so it’s like a big thing for me before I had the iPhone XR , anyway this app I have seen people make agsm’s ( American girl stop motion) but I’m not exactly sure on how to use the app I thought it would be where I make a scene press pause add some effects blah blah blah etc but I don’t see any features near that and I would certainly like to use this app but if I would download this on my own time I would kinda maybe rue the fact that I did by this I don’t mean any offense to anybody by this review but I think it’s pretty similar to the. “ clips” app but I like clips better T-Mobile also happened to download it for me and it’s cool and easier to use I guess so maybe I’m just new and I don’t understand but if I do understand it later on I will make a new review. Wow! This is long I’m going to go now and review the other apps T-Mobile downloaded for me because I like to review apps. Hope this helps!:-). Update I’m going to try and use this for a gatcha life vid I will get back when it’s done with info
Best app ever
by ugcjy on 2021/01/15 16:38
This app was able to make me and my family have fun I have not had that in a wail
Excellent but a couple things to fix
by applegurl79 on 2021/01/15 16:06
It’s a great app however it gets stuck from time to time when adding photos or any external files, you can only select one photo at a time once in the program to add to iMovie. They stopped you from sharing directly to YouTube which is another issue. They also removed the capability to share the project your working on to your desktop Mac OS machines, so if you start working on your iOS device and want to transfer or import your project to your MacBook Pro or iMac you can’t, it gives an error that the file your trying to import is too new. Which is a pain for me because I use multiple devices. I wish you guys could at least fix this function. And allow importing your iMovie projects over to Mac OS. Otherwise it works great.
Terrible app
by Syd CA on 2021/01/15 07:54
If I have a lot of recordings in a movie, there’s a chance that some glitch that still hasn’t been fixed for literally 10 years, will scatter your recordings all over the movie if you export it. Every single glitch that has been here in 2011, IS STILL HERE IN 2021. The support for the app is horrible, and I have NEVER used a more unstable app than this. Apple, please listen to people when ever they have complaints about your products.
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
by meloveunicorns🥴👺👹 on 2021/01/15 03:18
Ahhhhhh ok so there is this weird glitch or something where I can’t edit the text, and I have to create the movie first, and then add the videos individually. It takes FOREVER. It all happened after one of the updates. I’ve tried deleting it and then downloading it again and it doesn’t work.😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬😖😖😖😖😖😖😖😣😣😣😣😣😣😣😠😠😠lol chill down bRuH.
New update
by AriannaAnimeStan on 2021/01/15 02:22
Your newest update ruins my editing, I now don’t know how to put a regular text without having to pick a way to put onto the screens and ALSO I can’t even set the duration of the text on the clip. If it wasn’t for the update, this wouldn’t be a problem
Bad app
by gfhughfmydjfyadusifshj on 2021/01/15 02:16
Are you trying to make a video 19 minutes long and it took me about two hours to edit and put all the side effects to it and once I was done two hours later I tried to watch it and then all the sound we’re gone that just made me mad and sad and I took all my time and put it on that I didn’t get the thing that I wanted to make that video so this app is the most useless dumbest baddest app there is out there
FYP
by kermitsbount on 2021/01/15 01:06
It’s a good app to record and have fun especially when you can make memories with family and friends
It's cool
by a few bugs! on 2021/01/15 00:56
To be honest iMovie is a very good app you can do so much things with it I really enjoy making trailers and movies of course but there's one little bug I would like for them to fix I don't know so every time I try to put in a text after I watch the video it's really not there so I'll get really confused

Does not export to youtube anymore

They took away the option to directly export to the youtube app
It’s close to Hollywood, but not quite....
by Akklibakk on 2021/01/14 05:07
Yes it’s an amazing app that lets you use special effects, crop videos and gives off great HD quality. But there’s one thing that bothers me most, it’s that when you’re adding up clips and you’re all complete you see the film you’ve made, and it’s when it cuts to the next clip, it fades to it, please change that.
Just a few suggestions

Ok I so First of all, if your reading this, it isn’t one of those paid ads. I’m being 100% legit. Now, this software is great! My school uses this to make videos instead of doing announcements and it is much more fun but I would like more transitions and music and sound effects etc ty! It’s really gra

Not working properly on iPhone since update
by KGbeautywithin on 2021/01/13 06:56
I live by iMovie as a content creator on iPhone & it was truly a great app. After the latest update, it is pathetic. You can't insert photos or background without going out of app & coming back in. I even deleted app & reinstalled. Lost all my projects & it still doesn't work! Please fix this 😫
Such a good app! Have a few suggestions:
by Have a great day!! :D on 2021/01/13 05:37
I highly recommend this app! Very easy to use. The only things I would suggest are 1) making an option to pan/ken burn videos, and not just photos. This way, the user has a lot more control, and I know a lot of people, myself included, would want to use this. 2) Be able to trim videos even shorter, so people can quickly change to different videos all at once. Finally 3) have the ability to change the size of titles and move it to any location of screen. This option would be very useful for people to have the proper titles they want. Once again, I have to say I love this app, and is very useful. Thank you!
Needs To Be 4K 60+FPS Supported...
by Wade123x on 2021/01/13 02:08
4K 60+FPS are non existing forcing me to look for other apps like splice which can but you have to pay for. This app would be great if not for that flaw. Also it would be great to add an auto captions feature for creators who like to use CC in their videos.
I love this app!!,!
by sryendgn on 2021/01/13 00:23
Yes sometimes it is glitchy but hey, all apps are kinda like that!
Can’t link to YouTube
by kswizzle95 on 2021/01/13 00:17
All of sudden, I can’t directly upload to YouTube. This is a MAJOR setback
good app but could have more tools!
by luna 🪴 on 2021/01/12 19:11
this app is really good for editing, you can change the speed, volume, you can add picture in picture or put overlays, add audio & sound effect, and everything is free with no watermarks. the ONLY thing i ask for though, is to have a portrait mode option!! whenever i try to add a photo or video that isn’t landscape, it just turns into a square so i’d love to be able to show the whole thing
The most perfect portable editing software!
by ElliphantGames_YT on 2021/01/12 07:44
With h Th w help of a few other apps to work with like FlipaClip and YouDoodle, this app can bring all the stuff I make into one video and it’s easy to upload to youtube! One thing I might recommend is adding a feature to where you can change the layout format of the video instead of it just being full screen, like vertical mode and full screen mode. Thanks for shaping my YouTube career

YouTube upload button removed
by The God-of-Cod on 2021/01/11 21:22
They removed the ability to upload directly from the app, this prevents uploading HDR footage from the new iPhones in any way. Would give 0 stars if possible.
😡 it won’t let me download
by astronaut chicken on 2021/01/11 21:22
So my sister got this app but I can’t 😡😡😡 We made great and funny this thanks to the makers but I wish I could get it for my self. If I could, I would give five stars ⭐️
Do better
by Emcake334 on 2021/01/11 20:46
This app dose not let you do anything at all🤦🏽‍♀️
Almost perfect, almost!
by ResSil151 on 2020/05/05 08:44
So. It’s very rare that I leave a review on apps, but this one deserves it. I have been having an absolute blast with this, especially since I’ve really gotten into drone photography and it’s the perfect tool to make for video editing. My favorite feature honestly is making the movie trailers, it’s so fun with a compilation of media. The ONLY issue I have with it is that I’d love more freedom. Once you pick the general theme it predetermines what you can do. It boxes you into a certain amount of clips per section and has a variety of different kinds that you cant control whatsoever. So for example. One section in the trailer would have 3 slots for clips. The first one would be a .9 second, the next one would be a 3 second closeup (which is very annoying since it zooms way in on the picture or video and there’s nothing you can do to adjust it or stop it.) so if it’s a video it could focus in and cut out what you actually want to show in the clip which makes it impossible to use a lot of media. The third one could be 1.5 seconds. The fact that you can’t change the number of possible clips in a section and that you can’t change the duration of any of the clips is very frustrating. But beyond that this is an AMAZING app that I will love using for a long time, definitely worth having to be more strategic on what media I place where.
Great, But Here is a Suggestion
by QwQ GamerGirl on 2020/06/28 15:29
Yes, iMovie is a great movie and trailer or film maker, you can make retro trailers/films/movies, romance, teens, family, fairy tale, swashbuckler, expedition, superhero, scary, coming of age, indie, Bollywood, adrenaline, and narrative movies films or trailers. I know, a lot of options 😅. But... There should be an option where you can change the music and where you can have the images and videos you took on iMovie only be stored in the movies on your app, not the gallery. It is a huge waste of space for your device, especially if you make lots of movies/trailers like me. I wish you could make the trailers longer than a minute, and can make it 1-4 minutes at least for trailers. When making a trailer, you can’t hear any talking or sounds just music. Maybe still keep the music, because that is still cool, but make there a setting where you can turn off music and can hear talking and sounds. Still a very great app I recommend, but I am just hoping for an update that will change that and further experience in the update. I hope this is good enough to explain the change I’d be grateful for and to explain to others who might download this app. Please make this change though, if not, it’s fine but thx anyways ☺️

This....is......the......best......editing......software.....I’ve....ever....use. Other editing apps make everything over complicated by making it look all “professional” or “easy”. Some apps make it so you can’t find anything and you have to enter all these strange unhelpful commands while others all you can do is plop the video in, put in a filter, and maybe add some random sounds. But this app is so good! You can do so much with it, it’s super easy, AND if you are willing to spice things up you can put it into pro mode where you can do even more! It’s even better because IT HAS A FRICKING UNDO BUTTON! It’s so helpful if you made a big mistake and you don’t want to have to do it all over again! It also has so many transitions that are so fun to play with along with the funny and awesome sound effects (my favorite it the time travel one) the only thing I have to complained about is that the default transition is fade and so I have to go through my entire video and put it to the standard one witch really annoys me I would also like a *BLEEP* sound effect because it’s so good for humor and if someone says...something... but other than that it’s so good and I don’t understand why it’s only rated 3.9 stars WHEN IT CLEARLY DESERVES A 4.5! soooo yea that’s all I have to say!
I’ve only seen 1080P results on an iPhone 8
by FOFS on 2019/12/05 22:54
As far as I can tell, iMovie works great. I had to do some overlay stuff (PIP) which required me to look up instructions for that online, and I learned a lot about other more “advanced” features as well. Once, during many, many edits of a short video, it did seem to stop working, so I just restarted it. I’m looking forward to adding my own music next to see how that works. It’s super easy once you get the hang of it after searching specific online instructions. I mean, skip the basic feature instructions, they are already very straightforward and more or less intuitive. And what a bargain it is!👍 Meanwhile, those other video editing apps might not even have the some of the features you want, except maybe for an extra charge, and/or vampirize your wallet with regular subscription fees, charge $90 for a one time fee, and end up having you in fetal position shaking like a leaf in a corner somewhere wondering how you, at least temporarily, lost that full, unlocked app you already paid a much better price for that went to a $ubscription plan. If this app crashes on your phone or iPad, I don’t have anything supercalifragilistic to say about that. So far, I have no complaints in that department whatsoever.
Great possibilities, major flaws
by P. Jones Moody on 2020/06/11 16:44
I’m an amateur when it comes to video production, having taken a few undergraduate courses in Final Cut and studio production in the early 2000s. I love having the basic editing options available in iMovie, especially now on iPad Pro. Generally, it all works very well, but there are some oversights that really need to be remedied in order for this to be a full-featured “first party” app worth long-term investment. 1) Memory usage, especially when “editing down” to share the final product. Multiple times, when attempting to share ~30-minute 1080 HD projects to my photo library, I have run into issues with the app telling me there is not enough memory to share the project. And that is with 200GB of device memory available (as shown in Settings), after deleting all unnecessary apps, downloaded feature films, and the like. My remedy: every time I start a new project, I delete all existing projects in the iMovie app, then delete the iMovie app itself, then reboot the iPad, then re-download the app, and then begin the project. This has been the only way to remedy the memory issues. 2) Audio/Video synchronization and waveform inconsistencies. Sometimes when editing clips, the audio waveform jumps ahead or behind, although the audio itself *sounds correct* while still editing. Sometimes, after the final mix-down and sharing, certain clips have audio that is shifted ahead or behind the video by a significant margin.
I am OBSESSED!
by ZGDfounder12 on 2020/10/03 00:08
I have been using this app since I was 6 years old and I FREAKIN LOVE IT!!! I especially love the new green/blue screen affect. I have made dozens and dozens of videos using this app. The only think that I would change is the trailer making part. I would like to add videos and clips into it that have sound and optionally hear the sound. I also would like to be able to add audio in the background. (Like in movie trailers when you hear the characters talking in the background) I also think that the green screen could be easier to use. It doesn’t work very well at all unless you have an actual green or blue screen which pretty much none of us are going to have. I also think that you should bring back the theatre. It saved me so much space because I could actually delete the videos and pics from my photos but the movie is still saved. And you might think that with these complaints I would do 4 or 3 stars but these are minor issues, there is nothing big, and I just love everything else so much I have to do 5 star. There are always going to be things that aren’t perfect but there are only a short couple with this app and I recommend it to all. DOWNLOAD NOW!!

by ewdcfz v on 2021/01/15 17:08
Ok so this is not an app I downloaded T-Mobile did it for me on my iPhone 12 which i got yesterday yay! Btw I’m a kid so it’s like a big thing for me before I had the iPhone XR , anyway this app I have seen people make agsm’s ( American girl stop motion) but I’m not exactly sure on how to use the app I thought it would be where I make a scene press pause add some effects blah blah blah etc but I don’t see any features near that and I would certainly like to use this app but if I would download this on my own time I would kinda maybe rue the fact that I did by this I don’t mean any offense to anybody by this review but I think it’s pretty similar to the. “ clips” app but I like clips better T-Mobile also happened to download it for me and it’s cool and easier to use I guess so maybe I’m just new and I don’t understand but if I do understand it later on I will make a new review. Wow! This is long I’m going to go now and review the other apps T-Mobile downloaded for me because I like to review apps. Hope this helps!:-). Update I’m going to try and use this for a gatcha life vid I will get back when it’s done with info
Update: uploaded 4K at 60fps... at last.
by SnazzDab on 2020/11/27 16:54
I have an iPad 6th generation, and the description of this app says I should be able to export at 60 FPS for 4K video. I’ve had immense difficulty uploading 4K video at 60 FPS previously, but it just worked for me. The video was extremely short, being less than three (3) minutes in length, but it did finally work. Last week (Nov 20, 2020), I couldn’t even upload at 30 FPS if I tried to export the project as a 4K video, which was extremely irritating. That was on the shorter end of a normal-length video for me, being only 6 minutes and 40 seconds. Usually my videos are at least 7-8 minutes, as I try to aim for 10 minute videos. I would like to aim for longer videos, as my 25 minute video really took off for how small my channel is, but I’m not sure if I would be able to export that in 4K, and even if I could, I’m not sure if it would have to be 30 FPS, or if I could export it in 60 FPS. For reference, i film exclusively in 4K 60 FPS, so all of my videos are high quality. That’s why I find it immensely irritating to have this limitation in the editing software when the description of the app says I can export in 4K 60 FPS and I have the 6th generation iPad, so I should be able to, yet it’s given me so much trouble when I try to. Hence the 2-star review. At least it’s gained one star.
Not as great as I remember
by juststankylegandmoveon on 2020/05/20 01:53
When I started using iMovie as an beginner’s tool a couple years back, it was very easy to use and understand. Every video I made came out exactly as I edited it, and I could do it for hours on end with no issues. Now, I have moved on to other softwares as I’ve improved, but I came back to this one to use as a base for my more simple clips and audios; plus I already knew how to use it and expected it to be just as easy as I remembered. But, coming back, I notice how it keeps crashing, whether it is a sudden black screen that forces me back to my home screen a second later, or even glitches within the app. For instance, I tried changing the volume of an audio by selecting it—and it split it where I had selected it?? It may sound like a small bug, but it gets very frustrating when it happens over and over again and I have to undo it. It was never like that before. Same issue with clips, sometimes it won’t even let me select one I want to crop or slow down, etc. It forces me to leave the project, the app itself, sometimes even to the point of turning my phone off just to get it running again—just to get it to crash again. I really hope you guys find this and fix even the small issues, iMovie was so brilliant before.
Glitches from iOS 12.3.1 update
by RannyPanny on 2019/07/10 23:19
Please, Please, Please Fix! I only use iMovie and usually love it...however, Since the latest update for my iPad that includes green screen there are a variety of issues making the app difficult to use....I feel very inconvenienced after having to start again and edit an hour long movie three times! Lagging start and editing, Greyed out clips and a black preview screen, glitches....overlays blacked out, some clips fine some blacked out, also after adding new clips to the edit when I press to play the movie it says it’s “downloading from iCloud” but it never does. I have iCloud Photo Library option on “Keep Originals”, and the iCloud option for iMovie off, yet it still tries to download from it. I even signed out of my device and but it gives the same message. If all the clips used in the project are in full resolution on my iPad, I signed out of iCloud AND I had the setting on “keep originals” why is it still trying to download from this cloud?. The other perfectly fine clips also glitch and sometimes say the same message. All the clips ultimately alternate from being fine to acting out and being blacked out and glitching. Movie taking forever to load or freezing..have tried troubleshooting by restarting the movie from scratch...Same thing happening since update.
OH MY WORD I LOVE THIS APP!!! 😍😍
by Edog🐶🐶 on 2020/11/28 02:01
Hi everybody! I love the app IMovie. It all started on one Saturday night when my friend was over. I was making a commercial for my fake toy store just for kicks and then my friend asked, “Are you using IMovie?” I had no clue what IMovie was. She said it was an app that you can make trailers and movies on it. The very next day I decided to try out IMovie, sense it was already on my IPad ( for some reason it came on my IPad.) I didn’t know how to work the app, so I just kind of left IMovie alone for awhile. A few days later, I was randomly at my friend’s house. We made a movie trailer on IMovie, but we did’t get to make the movie. That afternoon when I got home, I decided to give IMovie another try because I now understood how to work it after watching my friend use it. From then on, I kept on making trailers. I never do the movies, but I make SO many trailers. I make them with my friends, and my family. It’s so fun to make them and then show them to your family. Overall, I totally recommend this app for making trailers. Thank you for reading, and I hope you try IMovie. God bless you, and stay safe.😊
AMAZING APP!! DOWNLOAD NOW!
by Triple8Gaming on 2020/12/14 22:29
Ok, so I don’t leave reviews for apps barely, but I’m going to because this is like one of my most favorite apps. So I am a small YouTuber (Triple8Gaming plz sub) and I’ve used iMovie since summer of 2020, (I mostly do videos on ROBLOX btw) and I’ve LOVED IT. My videos have been getting lost of views because of it. And the newest update to text and stuff is something I’ve wanted since I got it!!! And the background is something I’ve really wanted as well. iMovie is really awesome as well cuz u don’t have to pay money and it’s quick and ez but GREAT! You can trim on it, there’s plenty of music, but I recommend maybe some more popular music, but anyways, I totally think you should get it, because seriously, this is my favorite and best editor I got. Sure, it doesn’t do everything, but it’s still really great! But one thing. Something that I recommend for the next update is coloring, stickers, maybe some sort of cool effects you can put on, and stuff like that. But anyways, that’s it, thank you for reading this, and I hope you have a great day! ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Ughhh
by Balletgurl22 on 2020/12/07 00:05
Ok, first things first. You said that when we updated it several previous problems would be fixed. They were not. I looked at the list and none of the issues were fixed. I was excited when I got to update iMovie with all of the new things but my expectations were not met. It gives you the choice of either keeping the text shadow or not. I thought it made the titles look horrible so I took it away. But after two hours, the text shadow always went back on. Next, I am having several other problems. I decided to use iMovie for a school project but it failed me. My dad was going over some things I should edit and I tried to adjust the time of the video so you could read the full thing, but the tool bar with actions, speed, volume, titles, and filters were not working. Three of the choices were grayed out and I was unable to change the accidental mistake. Also, when I got a new iPad, I was also unhappy. I had saved all of the iMovies, but when I got back on the app, all of my previously made movies disappeared. I could not find them anywhere and all of the movies I dedicated my time too, were lost.
Pretty good
by gssfsbsbzvzvzvzhgsgsv hi 0k on 2020/11/23 12:54
I love this app and it is amazing I have always wanted to make movies and become a detector but the trailers make me crazy you can’t make noise from the movie like in real trailers over the music and you can only put certain amounts of clips and you can’t even choose what music and all that is so annoying I hate it like trailers are to show the awesome parts of your movie but because of all that that is impossible to do with this app please make that better now for the other thing this app has completely failed for me I can’t play on it anymore it keeps saying I need to re-download and when I do it says I have to do it again and again and again however if I ever get back into this app again I will play it all the time I love the it is really pretty good I just wish the the trailers were better and less defective I mean it even ruins the clips you can put in by zooming in and cropping and stuff like that I need that fixed please but minus that the app is amazing I just wish it would let me in cause honestly without the annoying trailers it is amazing and I love it
Speedramps make it un exportable
by Davidhok on 2020/12/17 06:14
Iphone 12 pro max 512gb and imovie gets hungup on the export until all speed ramps are edited back to normal speed. Other wise compared to a desktop editing software such as premiere, or even shotcut, imovie is just ok ..somewhat of a disappointment. Editing music imo should act like editing a video clip so I have ultimate control. It tries to control how music is edited in as if I don’t or can’t edit in certain parts of a song..maybe make the app controlling music or not, optional. Give me a toggle so I can edit music clips just how I want too. Your way ends the music seconds before the end of the clip making an awkward pause that I can’t control. Fade outs only on beginning and end of the entire video? Not great. It’s as if by default for someone who has never edited a video before and tries to hold your hand too much. The titles are all meh. I wish I didn’t have to design something in photoshop to bring in for a title because the title designing tools are non existent. For what it is It’s the best editing tool I have ever used on a phone for video but so crippled in ways Im seriously considering buying an app that can do everything I’ve been complaining here about Imovie not doing! Thanks.
Very useful, but one major issue
by GreenGoblin0310 on 2020/11/02 14:03
I love iMovie. I have been using it to edit my videos, music videos, and school projects for many years. However, to this day there is still a major issue that has yet to be fixed. When I position the playhead at any point of the clip, whether it’s the midpoint or the end of the clip (with the intent to, say, adjust the length of the clip or split the clip), the playhead always jumps back to the beginning of the clip. This is especially problematic with longer clips, as the clips can’t be adjusted from the end with this bug. On a more positive note, the latest update is absolutely fantastic! For so long the available text and title options were unprofessional-looking (and there weren’t very many to choose from) but now, you can change the text font, you can change color of the text, and you can even freely position and resize the text by simply dragging and pinching! It’s great, and I hope the aforementioned bug gets fixed soon.
Great but I have a big problem
by Werty536743 on 2020/04/21 00:59
I’m a youtuber my channel is NINJAZOMBIESLAYER I’ve been using this sense the start of my channel and my problems with it is that when I transport a video to my photos and then try to delete it from the imovies it takes a long time to delete I also am never able to delete some videos which forces me to delete and reinstall the app which I’ve done many times the reason this is a big problem is that if I can’t delete the vid from imovies and have the vid transferred to the photos is then I have a duplicated vid taking up lots of storage if I made a 30 min vid and transported it and can’t delete it from the imovies I then have 1 hour worth of video storage which is 5 to 10 GB which doesn’t only effect me but you the developers of this app because people like my sis who only have 5 GB will never be able to use this app which lowers the amount of downloads of your app and it effects us by taking up our storage which forces us to upgrade storage just for this app.
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.
Perfect movie maker for iPad
by MacLoverPro9 on 2020/10/25 16:48
I use this app almost every day in connection with animation apps. As a long time video editor, I am very impressed with the various features of iMovie. I have used this app to shoot and edit videos for every social media website. The best thing of all is iMovie’s linkage to iCloud. I can create, edit and save everything from trailers to feature length documentaries on my iPad using iMovie. It works across all my devices and makes it very easy to edit and create a quick movie for followers, friends and family in both work and social settings. The soundtrack options offer dynamic music to create just the right mood for the projects I work on. Best of all is that the native file rendering allows me to tailor my movies to any media sharing site I am working on. If you haven’t used iMovie on iPad for your video post production, you don’t know what you are missing. This is the best movie app for content creators and editors on every skill set. It is easy, fun and free.
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. 😡
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! 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
Really disappointed.
by batwomayne on 2019/01/16 13:17
Really, for 5$ (at least it was when I bought it years ago) you'd think it'd be WAY less glitchy. No matter what I do, the same glitches seem to occur for me over the past years. I've been through three different phones, and it's a bummer because I can't find an app that is quite advanced as this one (is supposed to be). The worst thing about all of the glitches if I have to pick just one- is the audio problems. If I made a background clip MUTE, it should stay mute. Sometimes I will save a video to my phone and the entire audio will suddenly be in the background even though it wasn't there when I previewed it. Sometimes I get screechy noises on moments where I made a clip break. No matter what I do I can't seem to fix this or get it to save to my phone differently. It's really agitating seeing as how it's been years. Sigh. Please. This app has so much potential. (Edit) And now I’ll probably stop using it completely because suddenly I can’t use ANY music? What the *** is this?? I paid for this app and can’t use any music because it’s “protected”. I’m making this video for my own personal use. I should be able to use the music on my phone. This broke my heart. Thanks iMovie
How can a company take pride in something so awful
by skjsnendnx on 2020/05/14 05:28
This app used to be good but for some reason I can’t even make simple videos for school projects without having to struggle immensely for no reason. I read some of the other reviews and I’m glad I saw some regarding the issue with placement. You can’t place things on your own. For sample I tried to drag a audio clip to start at a certain point in the video. Every time I would try to place the audio bar in a certain place the app would automatically move it a couple centimeters ahead or behind. This makes it so frustrating to get good timing in my videos because of this stupid i don’t even know what it is. You guys make countless of updates but your staff seems to have inherited Stevie wonders vision because it actually seems like the bugs and glitches are getting worse. Of course I’m not expecting professional level editing for a free application, but if an app that apple proudly presents for their customers to use can barely place an audio bit correctly, than you guys need to start getting laser eye surgery and making some REAL changes and updates. Oh I’m sure you fixed the bugs just like your updates say. You don’t.
Needs HUGE debugging
by jackkiinnnweechan on 2020/05/11 10:57
I am an amateur gaming editor and I have been using this to improve my skills. I have also created memes out of it and it is an absolute blast using this app. I always love using it to create something entertaining. However, there are a lot of bugs that need fixing. One for example, is videos that I recently added have a tendency to not show up when I go to edit them. I spent an hour trying to port a clip from my camera roll to iMovie, cycling through different methods and jumping through tons of hoops just to be able to create a quick montage for a client. A gaming edit that shouldn’t have taken more than an hour or so took three hours because when I went to grab more clips from my camera roll, the same thing happened. This really needs to be fixed. This problem alone is enough to steer me towards uninstalling and using another editor. Other than that bug, it is an amazing app. It is extremely user friendly and easy to learn and I think everyone should play with it to make something nice. Please address this issue! 🙏🏻
Overall being ruined by many problems.
by SStidfole on 2020/04/21 16:05
I’ve used this app for so long. Let’s face it, maybe a few years or 1? It was easy and compressed to used as you could add your own music to Movies at the time, and more. But whatever update it was, it ruined the app. A few days ago I was trying to edit a video I made, and when I recorded my voice over it? Everything had a stroke. My voice was delayed, the video ended too early, my voice cutoff the edge, the cuts didn’t match with the video. I thought, maybe that was a glitch, won’t happen today. So I go to edit a minecraft video, and take a guess what happens. Y’know, I really liked this app and still do a bit, but whatever update that made that.. it ruined it. So I deleted the app out of anger. Fix this or i’ll just give up on iMovie entirely. I had so much work put into it, and right as I get ready to add my voiceover, IT GLITCHES FOR THE 2ND FRICKING TIME. 3 stars, would give it 5 but the glitch ruined it. Fix. This. Also, if this helps, i’m on an iPad Pro. I don’t know much more, just I know i’m on an iPad Pro.
PLEASE FIX THIS
by merry shakouri on 2020/05/01 20:59
I’m not even kidding I was working for hours on Editing my yt vid and I was finally done. I usually watch the whole thing to check if I didn’t everything right. Tell me why every single overlay I took 5 minutes to do each was early. Everything got messed up. I have to redo it now. I was crying for like 20 minutes straight. I’m not even kidding I’m SO MAD. I took time out of studying so I could finish this video. Then iMovie glitches and puts every single over lay that I spent a long time to be perfect, earlier than it should have been. This is not the first time. I’m not gonna keep wasting my time to do a video then this ends up happening. Please fix this problem. Cause I can’t handle it anymore. It’s 5:00 am rn I started editing at 10:00 pm. And everything is messed up. I am so furious. And sad. And every single bad emotion. Hello I’m editing this. The same thing happens again. I finished the video again and the same thing happened. I’m literally about to lose my mind. And I can’t update it then all my progress on other projects will be lost
App won’t open
by imthecomputerguy on 2017/09/30 02:09
Okay, I’m just going to say that I love this app and I use It ALL the time. But, last night the video was about 20 minutes long and the app got SUPER Slow. It took hours to edit something that shouldn’t have. I’ve never had this problem before so I don’t know what’s wrong. this morning I was working on the project And got out of the app temporarily and tried to get back on and it won’t allow me to get back on since! I was really looking forward to making the finishing touches and showing my family but now I cannot. I thought it may have something to do with a storage problem so I got rid of 13 Gigs of storage and it STILL won’t open! I’ve restarted the app countless times, and restarted my phone and yet it still won’t let me open the app. Aaahhhggg help!! This is the first time I’ve had issues with the app. And I don’t want to loose all the hard work I’ve put into this and many other videos as well. Please help
⚠️DO NOT GET THIS APP⚠️
by hahshajabab on 2020/07/15 19:22
I used to love iMovie. However, once I started to take editing seriously, the app failed me. I would work long and hard on editing a project and then the app would ERASE all my work. The part where it shows my videos is black. I cannot play the video nor edit it anymore. There was one time when I somehow managed to save the edits I made, but nine out of ten times I’ve lost my work. If I could give it zero stars I would. I’m warning people now, do not get this app. There are many times I have wanted to write a review about this app, and how it takes away all your hard work, but most recently I went on a trip, and took videos there and started to edit them. Just now, today, I was editing it, and the screen went black where it shows my video. I couldn’t save my edits and hard work. And I can’t retake those videos. The only other option was to start all over and take hours and hours to do it. I did not have the time. But today, when I was editing it and the screen went black, I decided to write a review because I was fed up with it taking my hard work. In conclusion, this app is not a good choice if you are really trying to edit well.
Requires IOS 13.0
by Olivia.Magg on 2020/02/04 23:18
I have been using iMovie for quite a while. But sadly it says you need IOS 13.0. Which I don’t have. So I would very much like for iMovie to change that. iMovie is very good with editing though. For vlogs, movies, trailers. All is good from that point of view. With the text it’s hard to keep it in one spot without going through the whole section your doing. Just realize that some apps have their imperfections but iMovie is a great app. Me and my close friends just finished making a movie and a movie trailer. I hope you like iMovie too. I sure do! I’m just hoping they let people with a lower IOS use iMovie again. I really loved iMovie till it wouldn’t let me use it anymore. Overall iMovie is great it just has a few little glitches and stuff like that. Which all apps do. So if your going to complain about iMovie than you have over a million other apps to complain about to. This app is one of the least apps you would complain about. I love iMovie! If your looking at reviews to get a recommendation you really should try iMovie. If you have a high enough IOS😂😂 But definitely and I mean definitely try out iMovie! It’s really fun just a warning!!
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.
Unreliable!
by jonyq107 on 2020/06/16 17:54
This is the most unreliable glitchy useless video editing app I’ve ever used! I just spent hours on a project and it the then this stupid app overlaps the audio and delays it a few seconds just enough so that it screws everything up. Not to mention it’s behind on so many features that plenty of other apps already have it’s absurd. It does this almost every single time I try editing a video. It’s ridiculous. Please fix this app for the love of God and all things good. Edit: I just spent an hour fixing all of the audio to my video and right after I got done fixing it, the audio glitches again and messed everything up.. I’m done with this app. It is so unreliable and seems to waste as much of my time as possible. I could've finished my online course on my computer with all the time I spent on iMovie but instead, it wasted that time and I didn’t get anything out of it since it glitched. You would think that a company as big as apple would at the very least have a RELIABLE app, but instead we have this stupid glitchy app with little to no useful features that would actually matter while editing videos. DO NOT USE THIS APP!
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.
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 😂
Great, but more features need to be added.
by Aidan Carreon on 2020/06/26 00:16
This app is astonishing, Especially since it is free! But a couple more feature that I’m about to say will actually make the app better! 1. It would be better if you could move, or shrink the green screen video. This would actually be helpful for beginner youtubers/editors to have more subscribers, 2. If you could, make the ken burns effect able to work on the video, not just the picture. Meaning like if you’re moving your hand in a video, the ken burns effect can move along with the hand! 3. Make the text on the video able to move by your own liking! That would really help a lot, and also add text fonts, and text animations. But that’s basically all feature that I would love to see in IMovie, if you add the following features. That‘ll be the happiest update of my life. But besides that, the app is very awesome for beginners, also since it is very simple to understand and use!
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?
Impossible to edit with
by scott wilson yt on 2020/05/19 03:17
iMovie is probably the worst editing app ever it randomly freezes for 10 seconds when ever I add a video and it crashes when I join a project plus when I go in to edit something it says some of these videos are being downloaded from I cloud so it will basically take all clips out so the whole movie is just black and it deletes all my progress also it will just stop playing my video it will just poise randomly when I look at my video and that would not happen with another editing .I have to send my piano teacher a recording of a song and now it says videos downloading from iCloud and it says it will show a progress indicator but it doesn’t so I don’t know how long it will take and it just basically deleted all my progress that’s why I’m switching to another editing app because it’s more reliable . This is probably the worst editing app I’ve ever used .
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!!
Brilliant app to use!
by Sunnyland1097 on 2020/04/17 03:42
This app is awesome to be honest cause it helps you know some technology skills for editing and this helps me a lot when I wanna do some gacha mini movies! But there is a problem though, So when I try to post the photo into the imovie, It just lags and glitches. I don’t mean to tell you that you should fix it. It could be the problem of my connection. I use this app for when I feel like doing a gacha movie. I chosen imovie to be a good editing app because (this is my opinion) you can add really cool music! My fav is O.P.E.N because some of these music don’t have the lyrics but for me, I like music with lyrics but sometimes I don’t but anyways, I also like the way there is beautiful effects so when you wanna be in a good photo you can use imovie to add in an effect! For the people reading this and disagreeing, This is MY opinion I don’t mean to give hate for the developer that did not remove the lag or certain types of problem! It could probably be my connection.
Great but needs help MUST SEE
by Alpha_1598 on 2020/10/27 18:42
This app is one of the best slide show creator apps in the AppStore. You can add videos from and photos from your iCloud, add music, to make a simple but outstanding presentation. But there is a MAJOR problem, is you exit your slideshow and don’t return for more than a day, a bug will show up. It says that all your photos and videos need to be downloaded and it take forever. I had that problem one tie me, and it a day and a half to download. I This is really upsetting considering that for all this app offers, problems like have to happen. If it has this problem, you can’t watch it in presentation mode, you can only access it in edit mode, and even there you can’t watch it because the videos and photos and downloading. So far, the only way I’ve found to fix it is to just do what it wants and wait but that is both time inefficient and not practical. Your better of just using things like google slides or adobe spark.
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!
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.
Good editing app!!
by GirlGam3r73 on 2020/03/17 00:07
This app is good for editing and I highly recommend it if you enjoy making videos There’s just some things I wish it had, and it could improve it dramatically. The option to freeze music: I enjoy making music sync videos, but it’s hard to when I can’t freeze the music, so I might do something that could cause me to have to re-edit the entire thing, which can be a pain. Be able to move text around: If this was added I wouldn’t have a use for CuteCut because that’s all I use CC for, is to have moveable text. Custom zooming: With this, you could slowly zoom in and out in the video depending on how long the zoom duration lasts. And to go along with that, being able to cut smaller sections of video (and to have to option to turn off auto snapping in the video, what I mean by that is when you’re in the middle of a transition, like actually IN BETWEEN 2 clips, it moves over to which ever one the play head is closest to, that’s what I mean) because it gets annoying to have to cut areas of a video, than extend it back again because I can’t cut a certain section, or the playhead just automatically moves over There’s some problems I’ve encountered 1: When I’m done editing a video, there will be an audio delay where there wasn’t before in the raw video 2. Sometimes, the entire thing will refuse the keep playing, OR let me edit. The app will crash when I try to on said videos.
Great place to start, but terrible to continue.
by Ze Operator on 2020/06/26 01:00
I’ll get straight to the point - the app does its job in acting as a post-production workstation, even on its mobile version. You can certainly make a nice film out of it if you try hard enough. Unfortunately, there is a severe lack of tools and a heavy amount of restriction that actually make it worth coming back to. Things like limiting the aspect ratio on photo (with the default setting to apply ken burns when usually it’s a filler method to make photos look good. There’s absolutely no need to add ken burns to EVERY photograph), limiting the amount of audio files attached to each slide to 4 per shot, limited amount of transitions, filters, and just a heavy restriction overall in terms of what movie we want to make over conventional work. Naturally, everyone has to start somewhere. But simply letting a workstation limit the amount that you can do for a movie is almost like mitigating wanting to make a good home movie at all. Feel free to use this. But if you’re a seasoned post-production editor, please consider the following before you use this.
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!
This is honestly my best editing app!
by Team Rhoads on 2020/12/18 23:00
Hello, Apple! I want to start out by saying how incredible this app is! It’s by far my favorite app to use for editing and making funny skits for my friends and family! There’s no major bugs at all, but I do want to run over some things that would be helpful to me! 1. For some reason, my pea brain doesn’t know how to export music from my music library into the iMovie, and none of my friends know either. It would be very helpful if you guided me into using it the correct way! 2. Special effects are used in a lot of apps, where there are like- animated, say for example, sparkles- or seasonal things! If you know what I’m talking about, then it would be helpful if you added that as well! 3. Usually when I’m making a skit or something with Gacha Life (I cant use screen recording to fix this, it doesn’t work), the photos randomly change camera angles ALL THE TIME. If my stupid pea brain didn’t work this out already, I would love some guidance on how to size the photo the way I wan’t it, and it’s ok if you can’t! That’s basically all for this review, sorry for any spelling or grammar mistakes. I’m usually good at that kind of stuff. And if any of this stuff was unnecessary, I’m very sorry. Thank you for reading this! Once again, your app is amazing and it really changed my way of doing things when I found out about it. :)
It was fine at the beginning
by Ihhhnzn on 2020/08/01 18:52
Ok, I’ll admit: I don’t really have much experience with this kind of stuff. But this app was SO easy to use. I figured it out, and I made my first trailer. (I never did any movies, just the trailers.) So, it already gives you a theme, the music, the number of clips etc. Which can be pretty annoying if you want to do your own stuff, but for a noob like me, i found this really helpful. The last one I did was my favorite one, it looked pretty cool if I do say so myself :). It was such a fun process I wanted to make more and more. So a few weeks passed, I was brainstorming some ideas for new trailers when I opened the app to look at what I’ve made. But when I clicked on one, it said the videos are downloading or something, that they weren’t there anymore. I was so confused and disappointed. I had worked so hard on them. I basically lost all motivation to do more trailers. I’m not sure what caused the problem.

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!!

Heres an honest Review
by Kara Landley on 2021/01/21 23:19
Hello My name is Anna and I love this app. It is a very good and decent app and I really enjoy it. Its great to edit videos and photos. But if you are looking for an app for stop motion this is not it. Trust me ive tried. I do suggest Stop motion pro 4.99$ app store if you would like to make one. Anyway, there are endless possibilities and It is my too pic for my videos the transitions, Filters, extra editing utensils are insanely incredible. Have a great day and enjoy iMovie if you get it, which I suggest. Thanks for reading! (Kepp it up imovie! :)
It’s great but downside to it
by ooohemad on 2021/01/21 22:23
Multiple people have this problem and it’s that the screen blacks out and you can only see the text and I’m extremely mad because this was a gaming video and i had no time to figure out how to fix it it was supposed to be a birthday montage and I guess my special b-day video is ruined

Fallen from greatness!
by Travel112488 on 2021/01/21 04:35
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.
Amazing
by acedrags on 2021/01/21 04:26
One of my friends has this app and made a movie with it. I’m planning on making a family movie with it. Absolutely amazing. Thx devs, I shall honor your hard work on this amazing app
good but annoying
by akdudidudhhxbxbx on 2021/01/21 03:49
i tried to download my video, but it didn’t work because it said that my storage was full. i literally had to delete half of my apps, and most of my very important photos with FAMILY. ridiculous.
Worst app ever
by #Taylor Swift on 2021/01/21 03:48
This app is the worst app ever because sometime it won’t do what you want it to do and it’s SOO annoying I recommend NEVER getting this app EVER, I HATE IT!!!!!!!!
Why can I get a still picture
by Jdnenejisoxiss on 2021/01/20 23:14
I hate how this app does a stupid automatic panoramic feature when I just want my photo to be still. Plz fix this.
A nice app
by Catty Nanav🐱 on 2021/01/20 22:00
No bad problems! NONE! This app contains lots of trailers themes, (I posted some on YouTube,) And so easy! The movie creating? People think this doesn’t save? Well? It doesn’t on my side. I’ve been working on Nacho Saves and it is LLLLLLOOOOONNNNGGGG. 45 mins! And it saved. For those of you who said it didn’t save, probably update your app or develop a new iOS. This is a nice app, I would keep it to do it for my Amanda and Janie soon!
BAD
by Loraita on 2021/01/20 21:41
I wish I could give it no stars. It keeps deleting everything! I was about to finish my project for my class and I tried to add one more picture and it deleted my voice through the whole thing!
I LOVE THIS APP!!
by App Reviews & More! on 2021/01/20 21:36
I use iMovie to edit all of my YouTube videos for my small YouTube channel. I love it!! It’s easy to use if you’re new to editing but also has a ton of useful features that everyone will appreciate. Great job with this one Apple!!
So...
by AntBoi07895 on 2021/01/20 21:11
I have been using this app for a few years now, and then out of nowhere all the sudden you can’t upload directly to YouTube anymore so that’s the reason I rated it four stars so please bring it back it’s annoying
Frank Kratos
by Frank Kratos on 2021/01/20 20:36
I can’t upload my videos in 4K format to YouTube it doesn’t have the app extension to send it over to export it anymore ever since I movie updated a few weeks back they need to get this fixed it’s valuable to me in my channel
Should be allowed to crop vertical videos
by Thenoy123454 on 2021/01/20 19:56
I use iMovie mostly for my YouTube videos but when I make Instagram skits I should be able to make a vertical video without having to crop it and loose resolution
So good!
by Olivia Grl on 2021/01/20 17:04
First of all, I have TikTok and I make edits. This app helps,so good, it is so easy and looks so professional! And I’ve seen other reviews, and first of all this is APPLE. Why so bad reviews? But overall I really enjoy this app, and think it’s lots of fun!

More Trailers
by SuperQB14 bre on 2021/01/20 12:45
Hello I have been using this app for a while now, maybe two or so years, and I think it would be beneficial to add more trailer themes.
Really Inspiring Honestly!
by 5/5👍🏻 on 2021/01/20 09:56
This App is just so amazing! It is a perfect video editor! It really inspired me! Please keep up the good work!
Good but some bugs
by YTjoewell on 2021/01/20 03:29
I use this to edit my YouTube videos and I use it to the maximum at the same time I get audio glitches when I download my video sine audios will be a couple seconds late a lot and I would like you to please fix this and add more context and features to the app
Five star🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩
by Kami 😘💎❤️ on 2021/01/20 02:03
I love to make the trailers with my best friend. There is a lot of choices for the theme . I just in general, LOVE this app.
Add Blur feature available for MacOS
by NJ816 on 2021/01/20 00:28
Ima make a bug (not really a bug) by dropping the resolution in the video (blurring the video), but I can’t do that on iOS. It is only on MacOS. Can you add the blur title available for MacOS on iOS?
Really, really, really buggy
by DominusPhoenix on 2021/01/19 23:17
I’ve been using this app as my go-to app for editing simple videos and simple montages. But now I’ve started considering other alternatives because of the bugginess of the app. Sometimes I split a clip and it randomly while I’m still splitting the clip it randomly switches to a random part of the video messing up the sync.
Good game and yes

Cannot Select photos
by Does it connect on 2021/01/19 20:54
This app is great and all, but I’ve been having some issues. Ever since the last iMovie update, I have been unable to select photos when adding at any time. I can open the photos tab, but when I select a photo, nothing happens at all. I can select videos though. I would be really happy and thankful when this gets fixed.
ruining my videos
by jhockey48 on 2021/01/19 20:25
I go into iMovie to save some old videos I made, and am given a “videos may be downloading from iCloud” prompt when I click them. Initially, I can still watch the video with the audio and everything. I go back to it after viewing a different video and am given the same prompt, and now I have NO AUDIO. I go into the edit mode where all the audio is still beneath my thumbnails, but despite cranking my volume, turning my ringer on, and restarting the app, my audio is gone. If I put time and effort into these videos and my audio is completely erased, then you’ve essentially ruined what I’ve made. This is a joke. I waited an entire day for the “downloads” to happen and nothing has improved. This iCloud “optimize” feature has ruined several videos I’ve made. What are you doing???
It’s good enough
by JadenRin906 on 2021/01/19 19:49
It’s pretty good editing software but it is extremely limited. It is good for editing a simple video but you won’t see any advanced effects or overlays. You’ll have to overlay it yourself using a green screen template.
Love but....

Upload to YouTube option gone
by lovely kinley on 2021/01/18 21:07
So, I’m trying to upload this video onto YouTube, and why is the option not even there. Is this apart of the new update because if it is. It’s trash....
Doesn’t work at all
by Nadosstar on 2021/01/18 20:44
This app could’ve been better since it’s free. But after trying to export a video for work that was only 13 minutes long, the app wouldn’t let me.
Not the best
by Qwerty@$$$ on 2021/01/18 19:12
If you’re looking to make more professional looking videos this is not the best option, the music requires purchase, the frame slides in the video, and the controls are very confusing. Personally I would not recommend but it’s not the worst
Working fine for me
by whehwhehhe on 2021/01/18 18:18
I see all these complaints about it crashing and whatnot. Works fine for me. Just save the video and export to YouTube via computer. However, I wish there was a way to import downloaded songs from Spotify. I appreciate being able to slow down and change the volume of sound effects, so I can manipulate them to imitate other sounds not included on the app. Works well for a free mobile app.
I loved it until this update...
by mintyflower on 2021/01/18 17:20
The update where the video squares the line goes by slower and the video block it’s smaller when I make my YouTube videos and roblox edit it is super hard to use now

The transitions don’t work
by J problem on 2021/01/18 10:19
Now when you press the drag to position button it shows a brighter color. When unpressed it gets dark. Idk which is the true color. Nothing seems to work with the words but putting pictures and videos in. Now it doesn’t show the true color until you tap the video. And I don’t even know if that’s the true color!
Won’t let me save videos

It’s good but needs more... stuff
by theDJperson on 2021/01/18 07:13
This app is simple and easy, very fun to use and also FREE but I would like if they can update the audio, like you can make your voice echo or deep or high Pitch. Other than that I think it’s a good start to editing :)
iMovie cannot download
by i'm mad that Imovie on 2021/01/18 04:40
It will never download
Great app, 1 major suggestion
by nickname11q1 on 2021/01/18 03:09
Overall, this app is great. If you need to edit a quick video, to editing a whole movie, this is the go to app. I do have a major suggestion that I’m not sure why it isn’t in this app yet, but we need to have just a simple text with no fade in or fade out. The titles are very good in the app, but they do not have any normal cutaway text. Apple, if you are somehow reading this, please add a feature too the titles section so there is a regular text option with no fancy “fade in” stuff. Thanks!
I love this but...
by candyblox29 on 2021/01/18 02:48
This app has been easy to use!! But..I can’t post on YouTube because when I click share I don’t find the YouTube button :<
It’s good, but I can’t use it.
by Luna Loves Tuna on 2021/01/18 02:36
I’m not usually one to use an iPad to edit and make videos, but if I don’t have any access to my computer, iMovie is a great alternative. However, with my IOS 12 iPad, I’m unable to download it. It gives me an option to download an older version of the app, which would be very helpful if it worked. I press “Yes”, it starts to download, but then after 20 minutes of waiting it goes black. Not the screen, just the app. Wth.
Won’t Export
by alyssamcadwell on 2021/01/17 21:20
I love this app, it’s great for making edits. My only problem (which is huge) is the fact that it won’t let me export my project. i’ve tried everything from deleting everything in my phone so that there was enough storage, to updating and restarting my phone. NOTHING WORKS. please fix this.

Let us adjust the aspect ratio and ill be happy
by madlyshhhhh on 2021/01/16 21:04
Imovie is a great and simple (and free), its the perfect editing software for beginners. There are some missing features that are crucial to an editing software such as changing the aspect ratio, color correction (customizable), and more. Those missing features set imovie back, but its still a great app nonetheless. (If your reading this Imovie review reading person, please add those features, thx :) )
Love it

How To Make This App Better
by chancepevans on 2021/01/16 14:38
I think that this app would be better if you can fix the problem with text that I have. I love iMovie so much but when I try to put text in - for some reason the effect for the text won’t work after I turn off capital letters or turn on the sound effect for the text. Also, I think there’s an error in the code or a bug or when the app was downloaded, some of the information of the app was replaced with something else or something. Another thing that happens is the sound effect for the text won’t play even when I turn it on.
Needs a few more things!
by MobD Gaming on 2021/01/16 13:46
Well iMovie is the loyal and best app I used ever since I started my YouTube channel. It is very easy to edit and cut , etc. . I you are new to iMovie then it would be easy. But what it needs is resizing green screens , more filters , and stickers and effects. I want to resize my green screen facecam but I can’t. I would love this feature. Then this isn’t very logical but the photos app has more control over the filters , looks , and colors of clips. And one last thing it needs stickers and effects. Well that is all thank you and please respond to this! Edit: please add Chroma key effect so I can remove background of videos and put it in picture-in-picture!
Very great app
by Claudybeats on 2021/01/16 11:45
Imovie is an awesome video editing app but one thing I would like you to add to it is other video resolutions, like 1:1, for Instagram and others.

?????
by ewdcfz v on 2021/01/15 17:08
Ok so this is not an app I downloaded T-Mobile did it for me on my iPhone 12 which i got yesterday yay! Btw I’m a kid so it’s like a big thing for me before I had the iPhone XR , anyway this app I have seen people make agsm’s ( American girl stop motion) but I’m not exactly sure on how to use the app I thought it would be where I make a scene press pause add some effects blah blah blah etc but I don’t see any features near that and I would certainly like to use this app but if I would download this on my own time I would kinda maybe rue the fact that I did by this I don’t mean any offense to anybody by this review but I think it’s pretty similar to the. “ clips” app but I like clips better T-Mobile also happened to download it for me and it’s cool and easier to use I guess so maybe I’m just new and I don’t understand but if I do understand it later on I will make a new review. Wow! This is long I’m going to go now and review the other apps T-Mobile downloaded for me because I like to review apps. Hope this helps!:-). Update I’m going to try and use this for a gatcha life vid I will get back when it’s done with info
Best app ever
by ugcjy on 2021/01/15 16:38
This app was able to make me and my family have fun I have not had that in a wail
Excellent but a couple things to fix
by applegurl79 on 2021/01/15 16:06
It’s a great app however it gets stuck from time to time when adding photos or any external files, you can only select one photo at a time once in the program to add to iMovie. They stopped you from sharing directly to YouTube which is another issue. They also removed the capability to share the project your working on to your desktop Mac OS machines, so if you start working on your iOS device and want to transfer or import your project to your MacBook Pro or iMac you can’t, it gives an error that the file your trying to import is too new. Which is a pain for me because I use multiple devices. I wish you guys could at least fix this function. And allow importing your iMovie projects over to Mac OS. Otherwise it works great.
Terrible app
by Syd CA on 2021/01/15 07:54
If I have a lot of recordings in a movie, there’s a chance that some glitch that still hasn’t been fixed for literally 10 years, will scatter your recordings all over the movie if you export it. Every single glitch that has been here in 2011, IS STILL HERE IN 2021. The support for the app is horrible, and I have NEVER used a more unstable app than this.

New update
by AriannaAnimeStan on 2021/01/15 02:22
Your newest update ruins my editing, I now don’t know how to put a regular text without having to pick a way to put onto the screens and ALSO I can’t even set the duration of the text on the clip. If it wasn’t for the update, this wouldn’t be a problem
Bad app
by gfhughfmydjfyadusifshj on 2021/01/15 02:16
Are you trying to make a video 19 minutes long and it took me about two hours to edit and put all the side effects to it and once I was done two hours later I tried to watch it and then all the sound we’re gone that just made me mad and sad and I took all my time and put it on that I didn’t get the thing that I wanted to make that video so this app is the most useless dumbest baddest app there is out there

It’s a good app to record and have fun especially when you can make memories with family and friends
It's cool
by a few bugs! on 2021/01/15 00:56
To be honest iMovie is a very good app you can do so much things with it I really enjoy making trailers and movies of course but there's one little bug I would like for them to fix I don't know so every time I try to put in a text after I watch the video it's really not there so I'll get really confused
I can’t even download
by Littlepeypey7 on 2021/01/14 21:18
Every time I download this it works perfectly but once it finishes installing at just stops and goes black. It has nothing to do with the storage because my storage is perfectly fine and I can find out why it’s not working
It’s great

Does not export to youtube anymore
by foggymorning80 on 2021/01/14 10:42
They took away the option to directly export to the youtube app
It’s close to Hollywood, but not quite....
by Akklibakk on 2021/01/14 05:07
Yes it’s an amazing app that lets you use special effects, crop videos and gives off great HD quality. But there’s one thing that bothers me most, it’s that when you’re adding up clips and you’re all complete you see the film you’ve made, and it’s when it cuts to the next clip, it fades to it, please change that.
Just a few suggestions
by Kaedyn D. on 2021/01/14 00:18
Ok I so First of all, if your reading this, it isn’t one of those paid ads. I’m being 100% legit. Now, this software is great! My school uses this to make videos instead of doing announcements and it is much more fun but I would like more transitions and music and sound effects etc ty! It’s really gra

Not working properly on iPhone since update
by KGbeautywithin on 2021/01/13 06:56
I live by iMovie as a content creator on iPhone & it was truly a great app. After the latest update, it is pathetic. You can't insert photos or background without going out of app & coming back in. I even deleted app & reinstalled. Lost all my projects & it still doesn't work! Please fix this 😫
Such a good app! Have a few suggestions:
by Have a great day!! :D on 2021/01/13 05:37
I highly recommend this app! Very easy to use. The only things I would suggest are 1) making an option to pan/ken burn videos, and not just photos. This way, the user has a lot more control, and I know a lot of people, myself included, would want to use this. 2) Be able to trim videos even shorter, so people can quickly change to different videos all at once. Finally 3) have the ability to change the size of titles and move it to any location of screen. This option would be very useful for people to have the proper titles they want. Once again, I have to say I love this app, and is very useful. Thank you!
Needs To Be 4K 60+FPS Supported...
by Wade123x on 2021/01/13 02:08
4K 60+FPS are non existing forcing me to look for other apps like splice which can but you have to pay for. This app would be great if not for that flaw. Also it would be great to add an auto captions feature for creators who like to use CC in their videos.
I love this app!!,!
by sryendgn on 2021/01/13 00:23
Yes sometimes it is glitchy but hey, all apps are kinda like that!
Can’t link to YouTube
by kswizzle95 on 2021/01/13 00:17
All of sudden, I can’t directly upload to YouTube. This is a MAJOR setback
good app but could have more tools!
by luna 🪴 on 2021/01/12 19:11
this app is really good for editing, you can change the speed, volume, you can add picture in picture or put overlays, add audio & sound effect, and everything is free with no watermarks. the ONLY thing i ask for though, is to have a portrait mode option!! whenever i try to add a photo or video that isn’t landscape, it just turns into a square so i’d love to be able to show the whole thing
The most perfect portable editing software!
by ElliphantGames_YT on 2021/01/12 07:44
With h Th w help of a few other apps to work with like FlipaClip and YouDoodle, this app can bring all the stuff I make into one video and it’s easy to upload to youtube! One thing I might recommend is adding a feature to where you can change the layout format of the video instead of it just being full screen, like vertical mode and full screen mode. Thanks for shaping my YouTube career

YouTube upload button removed
by The God-of-Cod on 2021/01/11 21:22
They removed the ability to upload directly from the app, this prevents uploading HDR footage from the new iPhones in any way. Would give 0 stars if possible.
😡 it won’t let me download
by astronaut chicken on 2021/01/11 21:22
So my sister got this app but I can’t 😡😡😡 We made great and funny this thanks to the makers but I wish I could get it for my self. If I could, I would give five stars ⭐️
Do better
by Emcake334 on 2021/01/11 20:46
This app dose not let you do anything at all🤦🏽‍♀️
Almost perfect, almost!
by ResSil151 on 2020/05/05 08:44
So. It’s very rare that I leave a review on apps, but this one deserves it. I have been having an absolute blast with this, especially since I’ve really gotten into drone photography and it’s the perfect tool to make for video editing. My favorite feature honestly is making the movie trailers, it’s so fun with a compilation of media. The ONLY issue I have with it is that I’d love more freedom. Once you pick the general theme it predetermines what you can do. It boxes you into a certain amount of clips per section and has a variety of different kinds that you cant control whatsoever. So for example. One section in the trailer would have 3 slots for clips. The first one would be a .9 second, the next one would be a 3 second closeup (which is very annoying since it zooms way in on the picture or video and there’s nothing you can do to adjust it or stop it.) so if it’s a video it could focus in and cut out what you actually want to show in the clip which makes it impossible to use a lot of media. The third one could be 1.5 seconds. The fact that you can’t change the number of possible clips in a section and that you can’t change the duration of any of the clips is very frustrating. But beyond that this is an AMAZING app that I will love using for a long time, definitely worth having to be more strategic on what media I place where.
Great, But Here is a Suggestion
by QwQ GamerGirl on 2020/06/28 15:29
Yes, iMovie is a great movie and trailer or film maker, you can make retro trailers/films/movies, romance, teens, family, fairy tale, swashbuckler, expedition, superhero, scary, coming of age, indie, Bollywood, adrenaline, and narrative movies films or trailers. I know, a lot of options 😅. But... There should be an option where you can change the music and where you can have the images and videos you took on iMovie only be stored in the movies on your app, not the gallery. It is a huge waste of space for your device, especially if you make lots of movies/trailers like me. I wish you could make the trailers longer than a minute, and can make it 1-4 minutes at least for trailers. When making a trailer, you can’t hear any talking or sounds just music. Maybe still keep the music, because that is still cool, but make there a setting where you can turn off music and can hear talking and sounds. Still a very great app I recommend, but I am just hoping for an update that will change that and further experience in the update. I hope this is good enough to explain the change I’d be grateful for and to explain to others who might download this app. Please make this change though, if not, it’s fine but thx anyways ☺️
LOVE IT
by happy panacorn on 2020/05/15 22:41
This....is......the......best......editing......software.....I’ve....ever....use. Other editing apps make everything over complicated by making it look all “professional” or “easy”. Some apps make it so you can’t find anything and you have to enter all these strange unhelpful commands while others all you can do is plop the video in, put in a filter, and maybe add some random sounds. But this app is so good! You can do so much with it, it’s super easy, AND if you are willing to spice things up you can put it into pro mode where you can do even more! It’s even better because IT HAS A FRICKING UNDO BUTTON! It’s so helpful if you made a big mistake and you don’t want to have to do it all over again! It also has so many transitions that are so fun to play with along with the funny and awesome sound effects (my favorite it the time travel one) the only thing I have to complained about is that the default transition is fade and so I have to go through my entire video and put it to the standard one witch really annoys me I would also like a *BLEEP* sound effect because it’s so good for humor and if someone says...something... but other than that it’s so good and I don’t understand why it’s only rated 3.9 stars WHEN IT CLEARLY DESERVES A 4.5! soooo yea that’s all I have to say!
I’ve only seen 1080P results on an iPhone 8
by FOFS on 2019/12/05 22:54
As far as I can tell, iMovie works great. I had to do some overlay stuff (PIP) which required me to look up instructions for that online, and I learned a lot about other more “advanced” features as well. Once, during many, many edits of a short video, it did seem to stop working, so I just restarted it. I’m looking forward to adding my own music next to see how that works. It’s super easy once you get the hang of it after searching specific online instructions. I mean, skip the basic feature instructions, they are already very straightforward and more or less intuitive. And what a bargain it is!👍 Meanwhile, those other video editing apps might not even have the some of the features you want, except maybe for an extra charge, and/or vampirize your wallet with regular subscription fees, charge $90 for a one time fee, and end up having you in fetal position shaking like a leaf in a corner somewhere wondering how you, at least temporarily, lost that full, unlocked app you already paid a much better price for that went to a $ubscription plan. If this app crashes on your phone or iPad, I don’t have anything supercalifragilistic to say about that. So far, I have no complaints in that department whatsoever.
Great possibilities, major flaws
by P. Jones Moody on 2020/06/11 16:44
I’m an amateur when it comes to video production, having taken a few undergraduate courses in Final Cut and studio production in the early 2000s. I love having the basic editing options available in iMovie, especially now on iPad Pro. Generally, it all works very well, but there are some oversights that really need to be remedied in order for this to be a full-featured “first party” app worth long-term investment. 1) Memory usage, especially when “editing down” to share the final product. Multiple times, when attempting to share ~30-minute 1080 HD projects to my photo library, I have run into issues with the app telling me there is not enough memory to share the project. And that is with 200GB of device memory available (as shown in Settings), after deleting all unnecessary apps, downloaded feature films, and the like. My remedy: every time I start a new project, I delete all existing projects in the iMovie app, then delete the iMovie app itself, then reboot the iPad, then re-download the app, and then begin the project. This has been the only way to remedy the memory issues. 2) Audio/Video synchronization and waveform inconsistencies. Sometimes when editing clips, the audio waveform jumps ahead or behind, although the audio itself *sounds correct* while still editing. Sometimes, after the final mix-down and sharing, certain clips have audio that is shifted ahead or behind the video by a significant margin.
I am OBSESSED!
by ZGDfounder12 on 2020/10/03 00:08
I have been using this app since I was 6 years old and I FREAKIN LOVE IT!!! I especially love the new green/blue screen affect. I have made dozens and dozens of videos using this app. The only think that I would change is the trailer making part. I would like to add videos and clips into it that have sound and optionally hear the sound. I also would like to be able to add audio in the background. (Like in movie trailers when you hear the characters talking in the background) I also think that the green screen could be easier to use. It doesn’t work very well at all unless you have an actual green or blue screen which pretty much none of us are going to have. I also think that you should bring back the theatre. It saved me so much space because I could actually delete the videos and pics from my photos but the movie is still saved. And you might think that with these complaints I would do 4 or 3 stars but these are minor issues, there is nothing big, and I just love everything else so much I have to do 5 star. There are always going to be things that aren’t perfect but there are only a short couple with this app and I recommend it to all. DOWNLOAD NOW!!

by ewdcfz v on 2021/01/15 17:08
Ok so this is not an app I downloaded T-Mobile did it for me on my iPhone 12 which i got yesterday yay! Btw I’m a kid so it’s like a big thing for me before I had the iPhone XR , anyway this app I have seen people make agsm’s ( American girl stop motion) but I’m not exactly sure on how to use the app I thought it would be where I make a scene press pause add some effects blah blah blah etc but I don’t see any features near that and I would certainly like to use this app but if I would download this on my own time I would kinda maybe rue the fact that I did by this I don’t mean any offense to anybody by this review but I think it’s pretty similar to the. “ clips” app but I like clips better T-Mobile also happened to download it for me and it’s cool and easier to use I guess so maybe I’m just new and I don’t understand but if I do understand it later on I will make a new review. Wow! This is long I’m going to go now and review the other apps T-Mobile downloaded for me because I like to review apps. Hope this helps!:-). Update I’m going to try and use this for a gatcha life vid I will get back when it’s done with info
Update: uploaded 4K at 60fps... at last.
by SnazzDab on 2020/11/27 16:54
I have an iPad 6th generation, and the description of this app says I should be able to export at 60 FPS for 4K video. I’ve had immense difficulty uploading 4K video at 60 FPS previously, but it just worked for me. The video was extremely short, being less than three (3) minutes in length, but it did finally work. Last week (Nov 20, 2020), I couldn’t even upload at 30 FPS if I tried to export the project as a 4K video, which was extremely irritating. That was on the shorter end of a normal-length video for me, being only 6 minutes and 40 seconds. Usually my videos are at least 7-8 minutes, as I try to aim for 10 minute videos. I would like to aim for longer videos, as my 25 minute video really took off for how small my channel is, but I’m not sure if I would be able to export that in 4K, and even if I could, I’m not sure if it would have to be 30 FPS, or if I could export it in 60 FPS. For reference, i film exclusively in 4K 60 FPS, so all of my videos are high quality. That’s why I find it immensely irritating to have this limitation in the editing software when the description of the app says I can export in 4K 60 FPS and I have the 6th generation iPad, so I should be able to, yet it’s given me so much trouble when I try to. Hence the 2-star review. At least it’s gained one star.
Not as great as I remember
by juststankylegandmoveon on 2020/05/20 01:53
When I started using iMovie as an beginner’s tool a couple years back, it was very easy to use and understand. Every video I made came out exactly as I edited it, and I could do it for hours on end with no issues. Now, I have moved on to other softwares as I’ve improved, but I came back to this one to use as a base for my more simple clips and audios; plus I already knew how to use it and expected it to be just as easy as I remembered. But, coming back, I notice how it keeps crashing, whether it is a sudden black screen that forces me back to my home screen a second later, or even glitches within the app. For instance, I tried changing the volume of an audio by selecting it—and it split it where I had selected it?? It may sound like a small bug, but it gets very frustrating when it happens over and over again and I have to undo it. It was never like that before. Same issue with clips, sometimes it won’t even let me select one I want to crop or slow down, etc. It forces me to leave the project, the app itself, sometimes even to the point of turning my phone off just to get it running again—just to get it to crash again. I really hope you guys find this and fix even the small issues, iMovie was so brilliant before.
Glitches from iOS 12.3.1 update
by RannyPanny on 2019/07/10 23:19
Please, Please, Please Fix! I only use iMovie and usually love it...however, Since the latest update for my iPad that includes green screen there are a variety of issues making the app difficult to use....I feel very inconvenienced after having to start again and edit an hour long movie three times! Lagging start and editing, Greyed out clips and a black preview screen, glitches....overlays blacked out, some clips fine some blacked out, also after adding new clips to the edit when I press to play the movie it says it’s “downloading from iCloud” but it never does. I have iCloud Photo Library option on “Keep Originals”, and the iCloud option for iMovie off, yet it still tries to download from it. I even signed out of my device and but it gives the same message. If all the clips used in the project are in full resolution on my iPad, I signed out of iCloud AND I had the setting on “keep originals” why is it still trying to download from this cloud?. The other perfectly fine clips also glitch and sometimes say the same message. All the clips ultimately alternate from being fine to acting out and being blacked out and glitching. Movie taking forever to load or freezing..have tried troubleshooting by restarting the movie from scratch...Same thing happening since update.
OH MY WORD I LOVE THIS APP!!! 😍😍
by Edog🐶🐶 on 2020/11/28 02:01
Hi everybody! I love the app IMovie. It all started on one Saturday night when my friend was over. I was making a commercial for my fake toy store just for kicks and then my friend asked, “Are you using IMovie?” I had no clue what IMovie was. She said it was an app that you can make trailers and movies on it. The very next day I decided to try out IMovie, sense it was already on my IPad ( for some reason it came on my IPad.) I didn’t know how to work the app, so I just kind of left IMovie alone for awhile. A few days later, I was randomly at my friend’s house. We made a movie trailer on IMovie, but we did’t get to make the movie. That afternoon when I got home, I decided to give IMovie another try because I now understood how to work it after watching my friend use it. From then on, I kept on making trailers. I never do the movies, but I make SO many trailers. I make them with my friends, and my family. It’s so fun to make them and then show them to your family. Overall, I totally recommend this app for making trailers. Thank you for reading, and I hope you try IMovie. God bless you, and stay safe.😊
AMAZING APP!! DOWNLOAD NOW!
by Triple8Gaming on 2020/12/14 22:29
Ok, so I don’t leave reviews for apps barely, but I’m going to because this is like one of my most favorite apps. So I am a small YouTuber (Triple8Gaming plz sub) and I’ve used iMovie since summer of 2020, (I mostly do videos on ROBLOX btw) and I’ve LOVED IT. My videos have been getting lost of views because of it. And the newest update to text and stuff is something I’ve wanted since I got it!!! And the background is something I’ve really wanted as well. iMovie is really awesome as well cuz u don’t have to pay money and it’s quick and ez but GREAT! You can trim on it, there’s plenty of music, but I recommend maybe some more popular music, but anyways, I totally think you should get it, because seriously, this is my favorite and best editor I got. Sure, it doesn’t do everything, but it’s still really great! But one thing. Something that I recommend for the next update is coloring, stickers, maybe some sort of cool effects you can put on, and stuff like that. But anyways, that’s it, thank you for reading this, and I hope you have a great day! ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Ughhh
by Balletgurl22 on 2020/12/07 00:05
Ok, first things first. You said that when we updated it several previous problems would be fixed. They were not. I looked at the list and none of the issues were fixed. I was excited when I got to update iMovie with all of the new things but my expectations were not met. It gives you the choice of either keeping the text shadow or not. I thought it made the titles look horrible so I took it away. But after two hours, the text shadow always went back on. Next, I am having several other problems. I decided to use iMovie for a school project but it failed me. My dad was going over some things I should edit and I tried to adjust the time of the video so you could read the full thing, but the tool bar with actions, speed, volume, titles, and filters were not working. Three of the choices were grayed out and I was unable to change the accidental mistake. Also, when I got a new iPad, I was also unhappy. I had saved all of the iMovies, but when I got back on the app, all of my previously made movies disappeared. I could not find them anywhere and all of the movies I dedicated my time too, were lost.
Pretty good
by gssfsbsbzvzvzvzhgsgsv hi 0k on 2020/11/23 12:54
I love this app and it is amazing I have always wanted to make movies and become a detector but the trailers make me crazy you can’t make noise from the movie like in real trailers over the music and you can only put certain amounts of clips and you can’t even choose what music and all that is so annoying I hate it like trailers are to show the awesome parts of your movie but because of all that that is impossible to do with this app please make that better now for the other thing this app has completely failed for me I can’t play on it anymore it keeps saying I need to re-download and when I do it says I have to do it again and again and again however if I ever get back into this app again I will play it all the time I love the it is really pretty good I just wish the the trailers were better and less defective I mean it even ruins the clips you can put in by zooming in and cropping and stuff like that I need that fixed please but minus that the app is amazing I just wish it would let me in cause honestly without the annoying trailers it is amazing and I love it
Speedramps make it un exportable
by Davidhok on 2020/12/17 06:14
Iphone 12 pro max 512gb and imovie gets hungup on the export until all speed ramps are edited back to normal speed. Other wise compared to a desktop editing software such as premiere, or even shotcut, imovie is just ok ..somewhat of a disappointment. Editing music imo should act like editing a video clip so I have ultimate control. It tries to control how music is edited in as if I don’t or can’t edit in certain parts of a song..maybe make the app controlling music or not, optional. Give me a toggle so I can edit music clips just how I want too. Your way ends the music seconds before the end of the clip making an awkward pause that I can’t control. Fade outs only on beginning and end of the entire video? Not great. It’s as if by default for someone who has never edited a video before and tries to hold your hand too much. The titles are all meh. I wish I didn’t have to design something in photoshop to bring in for a title because the title designing tools are non existent. For what it is It’s the best editing tool I have ever used on a phone for video but so crippled in ways Im seriously considering buying an app that can do everything I’ve been complaining here about Imovie not doing! Thanks.
Very useful, but one major issue
by GreenGoblin0310 on 2020/11/02 14:03
I love iMovie. I have been using it to edit my videos, music videos, and school projects for many years. However, to this day there is still a major issue that has yet to be fixed. When I position the playhead at any point of the clip, whether it’s the midpoint or the end of the clip (with the intent to, say, adjust the length of the clip or split the clip), the playhead always jumps back to the beginning of the clip. This is especially problematic with longer clips, as the clips can’t be adjusted from the end with this bug. On a more positive note, the latest update is absolutely fantastic! For so long the available text and title options were unprofessional-looking (and there weren’t very many to choose from) but now, you can change the text font, you can change color of the text, and you can even freely position and resize the text by simply dragging and pinching! It’s great, and I hope the aforementioned bug gets fixed soon.
Great but I have a big problem
by Werty536743 on 2020/04/21 00:59
I’m a youtuber my channel is NINJAZOMBIESLAYER I’ve been using this sense the start of my channel and my problems with it is that when I transport a video to my photos and then try to delete it from the imovies it takes a long time to delete I also am never able to delete some videos which forces me to delete and reinstall the app which I’ve done many times the reason this is a big problem is that if I can’t delete the vid from imovies and have the vid transferred to the photos is then I have a duplicated vid taking up lots of storage if I made a 30 min vid and transported it and can’t delete it from the imovies I then have 1 hour worth of video storage which is 5 to 10 GB which doesn’t only effect me but you the developers of this app because people like my sis who only have 5 GB will never be able to use this app which lowers the amount of downloads of your app and it effects us by taking up our storage which forces us to upgrade storage just for this app.
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.
Perfect movie maker for iPad
by MacLoverPro9 on 2020/10/25 16:48
I use this app almost every day in connection with animation apps. As a long time video editor, I am very impressed with the various features of iMovie. I have used this app to shoot and edit videos for every social media website. The best thing of all is iMovie’s linkage to iCloud. I can create, edit and save everything from trailers to feature length documentaries on my iPad using iMovie. It works across all my devices and makes it very easy to edit and create a quick movie for followers, friends and family in both work and social settings. The soundtrack options offer dynamic music to create just the right mood for the projects I work on. Best of all is that the native file rendering allows me to tailor my movies to any media sharing site I am working on. If you haven’t used iMovie on iPad for your video post production, you don’t know what you are missing. This is the best movie app for content creators and editors on every skill set. It is easy, fun and free.
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. 😡
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! 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
Really disappointed.
by batwomayne on 2019/01/16 13:17
Really, for 5$ (at least it was when I bought it years ago) you'd think it'd be WAY less glitchy. No matter what I do, the same glitches seem to occur for me over the past years. I've been through three different phones, and it's a bummer because I can't find an app that is quite advanced as this one (is supposed to be). The worst thing about all of the glitches if I have to pick just one- is the audio problems. If I made a background clip MUTE, it should stay mute. Sometimes I will save a video to my phone and the entire audio will suddenly be in the background even though it wasn't there when I previewed it. Sometimes I get screechy noises on moments where I made a clip break. No matter what I do I can't seem to fix this or get it to save to my phone differently. It's really agitating seeing as how it's been years. Sigh. Please. This app has so much potential. (Edit) And now I’ll probably stop using it completely because suddenly I can’t use ANY music? What the *** is this?? I paid for this app and can’t use any music because it’s “protected”. I’m making this video for my own personal use. I should be able to use the music on my phone. This broke my heart. Thanks iMovie
How can a company take pride in something so awful
by skjsnendnx on 2020/05/14 05:28
This app used to be good but for some reason I can’t even make simple videos for school projects without having to struggle immensely for no reason. I read some of the other reviews and I’m glad I saw some regarding the issue with placement. You can’t place things on your own. For sample I tried to drag a audio clip to start at a certain point in the video. Every time I would try to place the audio bar in a certain place the app would automatically move it a couple centimeters ahead or behind. This makes it so frustrating to get good timing in my videos because of this stupid i don’t even know what it is. You guys make countless of updates but your staff seems to have inherited Stevie wonders vision because it actually seems like the bugs and glitches are getting worse. Of course I’m not expecting professional level editing for a free application, but if an app that apple proudly presents for their customers to use can barely place an audio bit correctly, than you guys need to start getting laser eye surgery and making some REAL changes and updates. Oh I’m sure you fixed the bugs just like your updates say. You don’t.
Needs HUGE debugging
by jackkiinnnweechan on 2020/05/11 10:57
I am an amateur gaming editor and I have been using this to improve my skills. I have also created memes out of it and it is an absolute blast using this app. I always love using it to create something entertaining. However, there are a lot of bugs that need fixing. One for example, is videos that I recently added have a tendency to not show up when I go to edit them. I spent an hour trying to port a clip from my camera roll to iMovie, cycling through different methods and jumping through tons of hoops just to be able to create a quick montage for a client. A gaming edit that shouldn’t have taken more than an hour or so took three hours because when I went to grab more clips from my camera roll, the same thing happened. This really needs to be fixed. This problem alone is enough to steer me towards uninstalling and using another editor. Other than that bug, it is an amazing app. It is extremely user friendly and easy to learn and I think everyone should play with it to make something nice. Please address this issue! 🙏🏻
Overall being ruined by many problems.
by SStidfole on 2020/04/21 16:05
I’ve used this app for so long. Let’s face it, maybe a few years or 1? It was easy and compressed to used as you could add your own music to Movies at the time, and more. But whatever update it was, it ruined the app. A few days ago I was trying to edit a video I made, and when I recorded my voice over it? Everything had a stroke. My voice was delayed, the video ended too early, my voice cutoff the edge, the cuts didn’t match with the video. I thought, maybe that was a glitch, won’t happen today. So I go to edit a minecraft video, and take a guess what happens. Y’know, I really liked this app and still do a bit, but whatever update that made that.. it ruined it. So I deleted the app out of anger. Fix this or i’ll just give up on iMovie entirely. I had so much work put into it, and right as I get ready to add my voiceover, IT GLITCHES FOR THE 2ND FRICKING TIME. 3 stars, would give it 5 but the glitch ruined it. Fix. This. Also, if this helps, i’m on an iPad Pro. I don’t know much more, just I know i’m on an iPad Pro.
PLEASE FIX THIS
by merry shakouri on 2020/05/01 20:59
I’m not even kidding I was working for hours on Editing my yt vid and I was finally done. I usually watch the whole thing to check if I didn’t everything right. Tell me why every single overlay I took 5 minutes to do each was early. Everything got messed up. I have to redo it now. I was crying for like 20 minutes straight. I’m not even kidding I’m SO MAD. I took time out of studying so I could finish this video. Then iMovie glitches and puts every single over lay that I spent a long time to be perfect, earlier than it should have been. This is not the first time. I’m not gonna keep wasting my time to do a video then this ends up happening. Please fix this problem. Cause I can’t handle it anymore. It’s 5:00 am rn I started editing at 10:00 pm. And everything is messed up. I am so furious. And sad. And every single bad emotion. Hello I’m editing this. The same thing happens again. I finished the video again and the same thing happened. I’m literally about to lose my mind. And I can’t update it then all my progress on other projects will be lost
App won’t open
by imthecomputerguy on 2017/09/30 02:09
Okay, I’m just going to say that I love this app and I use It ALL the time. But, last night the video was about 20 minutes long and the app got SUPER Slow. It took hours to edit something that shouldn’t have. I’ve never had this problem before so I don’t know what’s wrong. this morning I was working on the project And got out of the app temporarily and tried to get back on and it won’t allow me to get back on since! I was really looking forward to making the finishing touches and showing my family but now I cannot. I thought it may have something to do with a storage problem so I got rid of 13 Gigs of storage and it STILL won’t open! I’ve restarted the app countless times, and restarted my phone and yet it still won’t let me open the app. Aaahhhggg help!! This is the first time I’ve had issues with the app. And I don’t want to loose all the hard work I’ve put into this and many other videos as well. Please help
⚠️DO NOT GET THIS APP⚠️
by hahshajabab on 2020/07/15 19:22
I used to love iMovie. However, once I started to take editing seriously, the app failed me. I would work long and hard on editing a project and then the app would ERASE all my work. The part where it shows my videos is black. I cannot play the video nor edit it anymore. There was one time when I somehow managed to save the edits I made, but nine out of ten times I’ve lost my work. If I could give it zero stars I would. I’m warning people now, do not get this app. There are many times I have wanted to write a review about this app, and how it takes away all your hard work, but most recently I went on a trip, and took videos there and started to edit them. Just now, today, I was editing it, and the screen went black where it shows my video. I couldn’t save my edits and hard work. And I can’t retake those videos. The only other option was to start all over and take hours and hours to do it. I did not have the time. But today, when I was editing it and the screen went black, I decided to write a review because I was fed up with it taking my hard work. In conclusion, this app is not a good choice if you are really trying to edit well.
Requires IOS 13.0
by Olivia.Magg on 2020/02/04 23:18
I have been using iMovie for quite a while. But sadly it says you need IOS 13.0. Which I don’t have. So I would very much like for iMovie to change that. iMovie is very good with editing though. For vlogs, movies, trailers. All is good from that point of view. With the text it’s hard to keep it in one spot without going through the whole section your doing. Just realize that some apps have their imperfections but iMovie is a great app. Me and my close friends just finished making a movie and a movie trailer. I hope you like iMovie too. I sure do! I’m just hoping they let people with a lower IOS use iMovie again. I really loved iMovie till it wouldn’t let me use it anymore. Overall iMovie is great it just has a few little glitches and stuff like that. Which all apps do. So if your going to complain about iMovie than you have over a million other apps to complain about to. This app is one of the least apps you would complain about. I love iMovie! If your looking at reviews to get a recommendation you really should try iMovie. If you have a high enough IOS😂😂 But definitely and I mean definitely try out iMovie! It’s really fun just a warning!!
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.
Unreliable!
by jonyq107 on 2020/06/16 17:54
This is the most unreliable glitchy useless video editing app I’ve ever used! I just spent hours on a project and it the then this stupid app overlaps the audio and delays it a few seconds just enough so that it screws everything up. Not to mention it’s behind on so many features that plenty of other apps already have it’s absurd. It does this almost every single time I try editing a video. It’s ridiculous. Please fix this app for the love of God and all things good. Edit: I just spent an hour fixing all of the audio to my video and right after I got done fixing it, the audio glitches again and messed everything up.. I’m done with this app. It is so unreliable and seems to waste as much of my time as possible. I could've finished my online course on my computer with all the time I spent on iMovie but instead, it wasted that time and I didn’t get anything out of it since it glitched. You would think that a company as big as apple would at the very least have a RELIABLE app, but instead we have this stupid glitchy app with little to no useful features that would actually matter while editing videos. DO NOT USE THIS APP!
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.
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 😂
Great, but more features need to be added.
by Aidan Carreon on 2020/06/26 00:16
This app is astonishing, Especially since it is free! But a couple more feature that I’m about to say will actually make the app better! 1. It would be better if you could move, or shrink the green screen video. This would actually be helpful for beginner youtubers/editors to have more subscribers, 2. If you could, make the ken burns effect able to work on the video, not just the picture. Meaning like if you’re moving your hand in a video, the ken burns effect can move along with the hand! 3. Make the text on the video able to move by your own liking! That would really help a lot, and also add text fonts, and text animations. But that’s basically all feature that I would love to see in IMovie, if you add the following features. That‘ll be the happiest update of my life. But besides that, the app is very awesome for beginners, also since it is very simple to understand and use!
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?
Impossible to edit with
by scott wilson yt on 2020/05/19 03:17
iMovie is probably the worst editing app ever it randomly freezes for 10 seconds when ever I add a video and it crashes when I join a project plus when I go in to edit something it says some of these videos are being downloaded from I cloud so it will basically take all clips out so the whole movie is just black and it deletes all my progress also it will just stop playing my video it will just poise randomly when I look at my video and that would not happen with another editing .I have to send my piano teacher a recording of a song and now it says videos downloading from iCloud and it says it will show a progress indicator but it doesn’t so I don’t know how long it will take and it just basically deleted all my progress that’s why I’m switching to another editing app because it’s more reliable . This is probably the worst editing app I’ve ever used .
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!!
Brilliant app to use!
by Sunnyland1097 on 2020/04/17 03:42
This app is awesome to be honest cause it helps you know some technology skills for editing and this helps me a lot when I wanna do some gacha mini movies! But there is a problem though, So when I try to post the photo into the imovie, It just lags and glitches. I don’t mean to tell you that you should fix it. It could be the problem of my connection. I use this app for when I feel like doing a gacha movie. I chosen imovie to be a good editing app because (this is my opinion) you can add really cool music! My fav is O.P.E.N because some of these music don’t have the lyrics but for me, I like music with lyrics but sometimes I don’t but anyways, I also like the way there is beautiful effects so when you wanna be in a good photo you can use imovie to add in an effect! For the people reading this and disagreeing, This is MY opinion I don’t mean to give hate for the developer that did not remove the lag or certain types of problem! It could probably be my connection.
Great but needs help MUST SEE
by Alpha_1598 on 2020/10/27 18:42
This app is one of the best slide show creator apps in the AppStore. You can add videos from and photos from your iCloud, add music, to make a simple but outstanding presentation. But there is a MAJOR problem, is you exit your slideshow and don’t return for more than a day, a bug will show up. It says that all your photos and videos need to be downloaded and it take forever. I had that problem one tie me, and it a day and a half to download. I This is really upsetting considering that for all this app offers, problems like have to happen. If it has this problem, you can’t watch it in presentation mode, you can only access it in edit mode, and even there you can’t watch it because the videos and photos and downloading. So far, the only way I’ve found to fix it is to just do what it wants and wait but that is both time inefficient and not practical. Your better of just using things like google slides or adobe spark.
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!
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.
Good editing app!!
by GirlGam3r73 on 2020/03/17 00:07
This app is good for editing and I highly recommend it if you enjoy making videos There’s just some things I wish it had, and it could improve it dramatically. The option to freeze music: I enjoy making music sync videos, but it’s hard to when I can’t freeze the music, so I might do something that could cause me to have to re-edit the entire thing, which can be a pain. Be able to move text around: If this was added I wouldn’t have a use for CuteCut because that’s all I use CC for, is to have moveable text. Custom zooming: With this, you could slowly zoom in and out in the video depending on how long the zoom duration lasts. And to go along with that, being able to cut smaller sections of video (and to have to option to turn off auto snapping in the video, what I mean by that is when you’re in the middle of a transition, like actually IN BETWEEN 2 clips, it moves over to which ever one the play head is closest to, that’s what I mean) because it gets annoying to have to cut areas of a video, than extend it back again because I can’t cut a certain section, or the playhead just automatically moves over There’s some problems I’ve encountered 1: When I’m done editing a video, there will be an audio delay where there wasn’t before in the raw video 2. Sometimes, the entire thing will refuse the keep playing, OR let me edit. The app will crash when I try to on said videos.
Great place to start, but terrible to continue.
by Ze Operator on 2020/06/26 01:00
I’ll get straight to the point - the app does its job in acting as a post-production workstation, even on its mobile version. You can certainly make a nice film out of it if you try hard enough. Unfortunately, there is a severe lack of tools and a heavy amount of restriction that actually make it worth coming back to. Things like limiting the aspect ratio on photo (with the default setting to apply ken burns when usually it’s a filler method to make photos look good. There’s absolutely no need to add ken burns to EVERY photograph), limiting the amount of audio files attached to each slide to 4 per shot, limited amount of transitions, filters, and just a heavy restriction overall in terms of what movie we want to make over conventional work. Naturally, everyone has to start somewhere. But simply letting a workstation limit the amount that you can do for a movie is almost like mitigating wanting to make a good home movie at all. Feel free to use this. But if you’re a seasoned post-production editor, please consider the following before you use this.
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!
This is honestly my best editing app!

Hello, Apple! I want to start out by saying how incredible this app is! It’s by far my favorite app to use for editing and making funny skits for my friends and family! There’s no major bugs at all, but I do want to run over some things that would be helpful to me! 1. For some reason, my pea brain doesn’t know how to export music from my music library into the iMovie, and none of my friends know either. It would be very helpful if you guided me into using it the correct way! 2. Special effects are used in a lot of apps, where there are like- animated, say for example, sparkles- or seasonal things! If you know what I’m talking about, then it would be helpful if you added that as well! 3. Usually when I’m making a skit or something with Gacha Life (I cant use screen recording to fix this, it doesn’t work), the photos randomly change camera angles ALL THE TIME. If my stupid pea brain didn’t work this out already, I would love some guidance on how to size the photo the way I wan’t it, and it’s ok if you can’t! That’s basically all for this review, sorry for any spelling or grammar mistakes. I’m usually good at that kind of stuff. And if any of this stuff was unnecessary, I’m very sorry. Thank you for reading this! Once again, your app is amazing and it really changed my way of doing things when I found out about it. :)
It was fine at the beginning

Ok, I’ll admit: I don’t really have much experience with this kind of stuff. But this app was SO easy to use. I figured it out, and I made my first trailer. (I never did any movies, just the trailers.) So, it already gives you a theme, the music, the number of clips etc. Which can be pretty annoying if you want to do your own stuff, but for a noob like me, i found this really helpful. The last one I did was my favorite one, it looked pretty cool if I do say so myself :). It was such a fun process I wanted to make more and more. So a few weeks passed, I was brainstorming some ideas for new trailers when I opened the app to look at what I’ve made. But when I clicked on one, it said the videos are downloading or something, that they weren’t there anymore. I was so confused and disappointed. I had worked so hard on them. I basically lost all motivation to do more trailers. I’m not sure what caused the problem.

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!!
