by Lord Of Ender1 on 2021/05/09 18:32
My only complaint is that they make it unclear how to cut or trim the video. Ive been trying to find out how for a few months and now i only use it for voice over.
Idk
by jjjjjhhhhyf on 2021/05/09 16:25
I used to love iMovie, but now I offloaded it to save space and it won’t reinstall. Either this is a problem with your app or just something apple did. This made me very angry and I no longer like this app if it is a problem with the app and if this is what I can expect from it.
What fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

by goobagsyusdoggo on 2021/05/09 02:13

by TammyD27 on 2021/05/08 04:30
I have made 2 movies of special events this past year and presented them on video conference. The participants loved them. It is a very easy to use app so for this I do give it a five. The movies I made were very stirring. I love the ability to record or add my own music. Yet my complaint is as mentioned in other reviews. It zooms picture clips way too close. You need an option to view the whole pic not just a focus on part of it. But overall you will make photo movies that touch the heart.

I have over a 150 GB in storage and the app is informing that I don’t have enough storage, then on top of that I can’t even upload directly to YouTube.
Mistakes were made
by coopercb26 on 2021/05/07 02:19
To be honest the main reason I downloaded this app is so I could edit YouTube videos easily, but recently I noticed they no longer let you upload to YouTube and now I’m stuck not being able to edit so I uninstalled.

Very simple app like useless
by Husam Altaee on 2021/05/06 10:33
Are used this app for two years and for each project I discover a huge weak points in the app especially when you add photos between videos you can’t minimize all maximize the size of picture and there is a lot of weed points, I think this app is useless unless if they add more option to make it at least good to use
A few problems but it’s great.
by Theswad901 on 2021/05/05 23:56
I love this and I use it to edit all of my YouTube videos. However, there are a few issues I have with the app. One, you can’t have more than one photo on a video at a time. Two, you can’t do a slow zoom into something like your face or an object. Three, there are still some stability issues where it will glitch out for no reason. Other than that, great app.
THIS APP IS GREAT

ALMOST perfect just lacking some key details. Otherwise it’s a great app! Mark this helpful if you agree it’s lacking some features and if this gets top 30 on most helpful I’ll make suggestions and TONS of more things.

by OMEGA_CVII on 2021/05/02 18:58
Not intuitive, bad UI, pretty much no freedom of editing. Couldn’t even put more than one box of text up nor could I make it so that they appeared at different parts of the video. Stuff saves over itself. Couldn’t put together an uncut, 7 second video with two text boxes appearing 2 seconds apart. Couldn’t even find a decent workaround using the app and photos in tangent. Waste of my time and will be a waste of others’ time as well. If these functions do, in fact, exist, then they are not well implemented in the slightest. Feels lazy and sloppy.

I love iMovie and how you can use it for a lot of different stuff but there is just this one glitch. It will not let me add photos anymore. Please fix this. I also have a suggestion. Well two. First, I think it would be cool to have a lot cooler transitions. Like the ones in other editing apps. Also, can you please make it so I can add my fav music. Thanks!!
Amazing
by Qniner on 2021/05/01 11:42
I can’t believe this app is only getting 4 stars. I guess that means I’m an amateur. This app is amazing to me. I had to put together a safety video project for work. It was so good, the District manager called me personally. They apparently thought I either hired someone or used some expensive computer software. When I told them I did the whole thing on my IPhone 12 Pro…. They were blown away. Apparently I work with a bunch of Android users😁 Anyway… the video was part of a competition against branches in our region which stretches across 4 states. My manager told me the competition was over the second I hit send after uploading it to You Tube. I think this app is awesome. Thx Apple.

Not that good
by MB-Bella on 2021/04/30 19:36
So I like iMovie but sometimes i will want a background in back of me. But I am going to have a green screen. I see other app’s that you don’t need a green screen and you can just add a background. Every time I’m trying to record a sound it does’t it really hear me and it’s so annoying. When i am recording i am going to say thing’s real loud.
Not enough free space error
by JulieAnn81 on 2021/04/30 19:24
Make an awesome video, try to save, and I get a “there’s not enough free space” to save or export error. There is plenty of space! Now I have projects stuck in the program with no way of getting them saved. So disappointing.

The only thing I would change Is to update the green screen because sometimes it does not work. Thank you and have a great day!

Fix the inability to rotate trailers please!!!!!
by Don't Want To Pay Twice on 2021/04/29 23:30
If I film in landscape mode then that’s how I want it to appear. If I film in portrait mode then that’s how I want it. The inability to choose is unfathomable and write frankly annoying.

My Concerns
by JadeGSTT on 2021/04/28 12:53
This app is a good app for editing.My concern is that every time I delete a clip it takes me back to the beginning!!! This app is very “unstable”. The app is very slow and I know it’s not my phone due to me getting it last week. I have videos to upload and this just makes it take a extended amount of time.
worst app ever
by Marcellus Sopio on 2021/04/28 11:03
It crops videos automatically, all important things, film maker might focused on are gone from the movie.

by marmar lee on 2021/04/28 03:17
This app does allow you to edit to your full ability. The only problem I have is when I’m editing, the video starts to glitch and I don’t know why, I have seen other people with this problem on YouTube but they only explain how to fix it if you edit on a computer and I edit on a tablet!!!
PLS DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE APP

Great app for movie making.
by TheAppReviewer! on 2021/04/27 19:51
On iPad: iMovie is a tool I use a lot to make movies. It is good for beginners, and has a lot of effects and options. On Macbook: iMovie on Macbook has much more features than iMovie on iPad. You can add multiple layers to your video instead of just one, and there are many more text and audio effects. Recommendation for Developers: You should change it so all photos taken inside iMovie are stored in iMovie instead of taking up space in your photos app. This uses up storage on your device quickly and is unreasonable, seeing as most people just want the finished movie in their photos. Overall: I would recommend that younger or less experienced people start with iMovie for iPad as it has enough features for a great movie and is intuitive and easy for beginners. After you are older or more interested in the more complicated features of movie making, DEFINITELY USE IMOVIE FOR MACBOOK! It is great and comes with iPhones, iPads, and Macs for free. It has so many great features. Alas, this is an amazing app, and I would give it five stars, but I’m The Reviewer!, and I only give perfect apps five stars.
Fantastic!
by tamon14 on 2021/04/27 17:46
I decided to review this only after seeing so many 4-star reviews. Here’s the bottom line: This is a 5-star app. So many reviews that give it less than 5-stars sound like they’re expecting an editing program that compares to a $2000.00, movie studio-quality editing program. This is a free program that allows you to edit movies on your phone! It is fantastic for that! If you want more, buy some super-expensive software and get all the bells and whistles you want. But for basic video editing that you can do on your phone, this app is outstanding!
Won’t allow me to select clip
by Dreamscape82 on 2021/04/27 16:33
With the new update you guys have a bug or something going on. I been using this app for over a year now to edit my videos but with this new update I struggle to select a clip to create. It won’t allow me to select it. I have to repeatedly restart the app to fix this, sometimes even restart my phone. I’ve even tried uninstalling the app and reinstalling it, done that twice so far. Still same issue. This is the worst issue I’ve ran across but there is more. Please fix this issue! This app I would be a five star for me but I can’t give it that with this issue that has been ongoing for about two months now or so. Usually it has a select clip option and highlights blue when it selects the clip But now it highlights a gold looking color when you tap the clip you want and it don’t give the option to select and create movie clip. This is so frustrating I have no idea what you guys did in this new update but this was never a issue until about two months ago. How can I create my movie clips if it’s not giving me the option to select and create the movie? I found the best way past this is tapping the select all option in which will select all videos in that column which can be up to 3 to 5 different recent videos, so I’ve been having to do that then go back through when it creates it into the editing table and delete the clips I did not want. Wow! Can you see how frustrating and time consuming this bug can be!? Very frustrating! Please fix it!
How
by Acceleread on 2021/04/27 07:23
How is this happening, also this update is NOT fixing bugs it’s making more. When you put audio in you can’t hear it, And the videos are deleting themselves.

Needs some bug fixes
by Sarge Reviews on 2021/04/26 11:18
It’s good for a freebie. But it definitely needs some updates, especially on iPhone. Frequently after doing hours of edits on a video, then trying to export, iMovie will say there’s not enough space on your phone, even when there is plenty. That’s a pretty bad glitch, and it really needs to be updated soon. Also, on iPhone, the user should be able to select the resolution it is exported in… You film in 4K, give the user the option to export in 4K, or in the lower resolution if that’s desired. On iPhone, the app seems to pick the resolution for you instead of giving the user the choice. Just a few tweaks could actually make this into one of the best free be editing apps on the market.
Amazing, although could be better
by moonlight...devil on 2021/04/26 01:22
I love this app, and the editing is easy. I don’t want to compare this to any other app in particular, but others have a lot more to do, like transitions. I’ve noticed this app only has a few transitions! Not only that, but all of the trailers are a certain length. It would be a lot better if we could try making the, ourselves! If you could add a few more features to this app like the ones I will suggest, it would be a lot more fun. Suggestions: you could add more categories (stickers, overlay, exported audio etc.) it would make it more interesting to watch. You could add more transitions. That’s it, but overall this app is amazing!

For the last few days, app crashes like crazy
by Matthew T. Adrik on 2021/04/25 13:11
I have no idea what’s going on! iMovie has been mostly dependable in the past but now it’s crashing like crazy. I’m lucky to select 5 clips before it freezes, crashes, and makes me start all over again. One more day of this and I’m done. Will move on to another video editing app.
Now the purpose of it is gone

I used to be able to upload my video to youtube, BUT NOW I CANT WHICH WAS THE POINT OF IT!
Frustratingly needs an update ..
by fudgemerightinthemouth on 2021/04/25 04:04
Keeps crashing everything I get closer to creating a masterpiece & that’s the whole reason I upgraded my devices, so I feel a little sold short because the app is very great and easy to navigate. Yet it comes at the risk of an unsaved project crashing out of nowhere, randomly.
Awesome! Little suggestion..
by ⛓🥀 ᴋᴇɴᴢ 🥀⛓ on 2021/04/25 03:01
iMovie is what I edit my YouTube videos on. It’s a great app, on a laptop. I use it on mobile so it’s less convenient for me but I still love it. One of my suggestions is to be able to move and size stuff. I’ve been looking for the most used editing app for YouTube Chanel’s and I cant find one that’s better then iMovie!
Very very good!
by GoodPerson4Life on 2021/04/25 00:14
So at first when I first started to make my channel I had no way to edit them and it would really bring me down, but now thanks to a good friend I have that told me about this and now my channel has improved a lot thanks to iMovie!
Great but...
by Smartboy0129 on 2021/04/24 23:33
This app is amazing and all but when I try to make my video shorter it's hard to do it because it always turns to the front and I can't make it shorter because it's too long.
Needs an update
by crm408 on 2021/04/24 23:20
The fact that you cannot delete the photos and stuff that made the footage look more complete drags it down and combined with the storage warning before if I download it to my camera that it doesnt let me pick my options like sending it to google classroom for examples just makes such an otherwise good app not even worth it. The bad severly outweighs the good
Wonderful app, but one minor issue...
by Chuuuuuuurp on 2021/04/24 18:43
This app is wonderful. It fulfills all of my needs! Well — almost all of them. I’m Judge Claude Frollo, and I therefore need to constantly get my Esmeralda content, but I need to make it all myself! You see, the WiFi in Notre Dame isn’t very powerful, so I can’t look her up on YouTube, or anything like that. I wish that you could see other people’s iMovie creations within the app, without the need for WiFi! Please create this feature, or I will have to continue to spend every day and night of my life making edits of Esmeralda. Sincerely, Judge Claude Frollo P.S. Please do this. Esmeralda’s worth all of Paris. 😉
Won’t download for no reason at all
by Rebbecka J. on 2021/04/24 08:55
I have been trying to redo load this app for so long that I’m just over it. I updated my phone after I seen it was somehow not downloaded anymore, and still, nothing. Now I’m just over it.

It’s really good but the only problem is the cutting. It’s very hard to use
Horrible
by Liam OB on 2021/04/22 10:48
The “features” crash the app anytime. The exporting is the worst in any app or software I’ve ever used. It will tell you that you need more space on your device even if you have 200+ gigabytes of storage left on your device. I’m only trying to export a five minute video. Stay away from this app. Mind you I’m using an iPhone 11 so these things shouldn’t happen

Listing What Can Improve
by REMENTERTAINMENT on 2021/04/21 22:49
Setting your own default transition type when adding videos allowing selection of multiple videos when pressing the plus in a project technically a voiceover as it is known in the business I am in, allows you to hear the audio at a lower volume while you record – it just makes sense for workflow and I think it should be first on the list. allowing resizing of green screen elements added be them video or photo to a project Dash it would make the app magical to be honest with you. I think we can all attest that the only reason we download this app is to have it in our hand so let’s try to improve the versatility of the elements that you do have because the quality of these videos after a year of using this do have a limit and only creativity will get you around the limits. good job just keep adding 💯
Lowers FPS
by Nignog guy on 2021/04/21 20:54
Makes any video look choppy/horrible with low frames per second.
Needs some new things.
by SIM PLAYER 777BJ on 2021/04/21 19:32
This is a great app and I love using it. There are some things it needs though. It needs a lot of new sound affects. And I mean LOTS. I don’t remember the last time there where newly added sound affects. It’s way to small of a selection. Also the panning thing it does with slideshows that needs to be taken out or at least add a feature to disable the panning for the project. If that feature already exists it’s really hard to find. Please give this app the love it really needs.

Very nice app, Thank you developer.it deserve 5 stars.
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.
Won’t allow me to select clip
by Dreamscape82 on 2021/04/27 16:33
With the new update you guys have a bug or something going on. I been using this app for over a year now to edit my videos but with this new update I struggle to select a clip to create. It won’t allow me to select it. I have to repeatedly restart the app to fix this, sometimes even restart my phone. I’ve even tried uninstalling the app and reinstalling it, done that twice so far. Still same issue. This is the worst issue I’ve ran across but there is more. Please fix this issue! This app I would be a five star for me but I can’t give it that with this issue that has been ongoing for about two months now or so. Usually it has a select clip option and highlights blue when it selects the clip But now it highlights a gold looking color when you tap the clip you want and it don’t give the option to select and create movie clip. This is so frustrating I have no idea what you guys did in this new update but this was never a issue until about two months ago. How can I create my movie clips if it’s not giving me the option to select and create the movie? I found the best way past this is tapping the select all option in which will select all videos in that column which can be up to 3 to 5 different recent videos, so I’ve been having to do that then go back through when it creates it into the editing table and delete the clips I did not want. Wow! Can you see how frustrating and time consuming this bug can be!? Very frustrating! Please fix it!
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 ☺️
I’ve only seen 1080P results on an iPhone 8
by FOFS on 2019/12/05 22:54
As far as I can tell, iMovie works great. I had to do some overlay stuff (PIP) which required me to look up instructions for that online, and I learned a lot about other more “advanced” features as well. Once, during many, many edits of a short video, it did seem to stop working, so I just restarted it. I’m looking forward to adding my own music next to see how that works. It’s super easy once you get the hang of it after searching specific online instructions. I mean, skip the basic feature instructions, they are already very straightforward and more or less intuitive. And what a bargain it is!👍 Meanwhile, those other video editing apps might not even have the some of the features you want, except maybe for an extra charge, and/or vampirize your wallet with regular subscription fees, charge $90 for a one time fee, and end up having you in fetal position shaking like a leaf in a corner somewhere wondering how you, at least temporarily, lost that full, unlocked app you already paid a much better price for that went to a $ubscription plan. If this app crashes on your phone or iPad, I don’t have anything supercalifragilistic to say about that. So far, I have no complaints in that department whatsoever.
LOVE IT
by happy panacorn on 2020/05/15 22:41
This....is......the......best......editing......software.....I’ve....ever....use. Other editing apps make everything over complicated by making it look all “professional” or “easy”. Some apps make it so you can’t find anything and you have to enter all these strange unhelpful commands while others all you can do is plop the video in, put in a filter, and maybe add some random sounds. But this app is so good! You can do so much with it, it’s super easy, AND if you are willing to spice things up you can put it into pro mode where you can do even more! It’s even better because IT HAS A FRICKING UNDO BUTTON! It’s so helpful if you made a big mistake and you don’t want to have to do it all over again! It also has so many transitions that are so fun to play with along with the funny and awesome sound effects (my favorite it the time travel one) the only thing I have to complained about is that the default transition is fade and so I have to go through my entire video and put it to the standard one witch really annoys me I would also like a *BLEEP* sound effect because it’s so good for humor and if someone says...something... but other than that it’s so good and I don’t understand why it’s only rated 3.9 stars WHEN IT CLEARLY DESERVES A 4.5! soooo yea that’s all I have to say!
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.
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.😊
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.
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.
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.

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!!
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!
a few things you really need to fix (READ)
by Sk8tr05 on 2018/02/10 17:32
it used to be really good, but lately it's been having trouble. i have an iphone 7 so i know it's not my phone. here's a few things you could fix: 1. let us crop it instead of having it always stay horizontal. i have vertical videos i put on there and it puts borders on the side and zooms straight in to the middle. if that's what you call a great editing app, i've seen better. i like lots of the features on imovie, but it's hard to use. 2. sometimes when i'm editing it just stops and doesn't let me change anything and moves the clips around where i dont want them. so i press done then edit it again and the video just goes black and i can't even play it. that's my main issue because i always have to keep starting over and it doesn't even let me save the video after it breaks. 3. maybe have the quality a little better? i press the highest quality when i'm done and it comes out much worse than before i even put it in imovie. please give thought to actually fixing it, because this app does have very good features, but it makes editing confusing and way harder than it needs to be.
Why I think it’s good
by boysarenotmyfavoritename on 2019/07/23 21:57
So I know you guys had some bad reviews, but it looks fine to me. I don’t know am I crazy? Are people over reacting? I don’t really make movies I just make trailers, I don’t know if there is something wrong with movies but everything seems fine with trailers. I mean overall it’s good. There was another app where everything there you needed to buy. I glad you can actually film in this one. Me and my friends love making trailers on this app. I hope it doesn’t get shut down. To be honest I don’t think anything is wrong with it. I just never make movies maybe someone makes movies and is really mad it’s broken. But you shouldn’t really care about audio anyways. At least they gave you music. You should enjoy the app. The only complaint I have is I’m on an iPad and I used iMovie on a computer once and the computer has more trailers? Is it a new update? Honestly I still love iMovie. Thank you.
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.
Not bad, but it’s missing something...
by Little Workhorse on 2021/03/25 14:50
I have used iMovie ever since I’ve had this iPad. It’s simple, easy to understand, and fun. But there are three thing I would like to see added to give a little bit more control. 1. More control over volume and sound design. Like having the the volume slider plus bass gain and distortion sliders so you can make an audio recording sound vintage, huge, or just plain silly. 2. More control over speed and pitch. The speed control slider is already intuitive, but instead of going to 2x speed, I think it should go up to 8x speed to match 1/8th speed. I would like for a separate pitch control slider because having pitch controlled by speed and vice versa is now feeling a bit limiting. 3. The addition of explosion, gunfire, and engine sound effects and the ability to use tracks from Apple Music. The explosion sound effects can just be regular old explosions, same as gunfire, but both should have a distant and close-up variant. The engine sound effect should be up that of a V8 with muffled and straight-piped variants. You should be able to chose starting rpm, ending rpm and load for each clip. For example, you would add the straight-piped V8 sound effect, choose a 3250 rpm start, a 6500 rpm end, full load. It should sound a lot like an LS, which is technically the most common American V8. Other than that, it’s a really fun app. So, I guess you could keep the controls simple, otherwise, it’s not really iMovie anymore.
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?
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
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.
Would be great if deleting media was possible on the iPhone
by Dude1437 on 2021/01/30 16:09
Typically to delete media from iMovie library, you have to go into the iMovie media library and remove the clips from there. There is no way to do this with iOS 14 now. This works on the MacBook and iPad, but after the iOS 14 update on the iPhone, there is no way to do this on the phone. The only way for me to clear up that data on the iPhone is to do a complete uninstall and re-install of the app on my phone. Or transfer the media to iCloud, but that is another headache which should be optional. A lot of the clips that I want to delete from iMovie media are junk clips that I don’t even want on iCloud because I know that I am not going to use them again and want them gone. This is absolutely ridiculous and a complete waste of time and space. Please, add a delete option for clips in the iMovie media library ON THE IPHONE, not just on the computers. Please! I absolute love iMovie, but simply clearing up my iMovie media library should not be impossible for the iPhone.
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.
Great possibilities, major memory management flaws
by P. Jones Moody on 2021/01/27 17:17
Generally, it all works very well, but there are some issues that remain unresolved: 1) Memory usage, especially when exporting the final product. There seems to be a hidden memory cache that doesn’t get wiped as often as needed. I have often run into issues with the app telling me there is not enough memory to share the project, after it has already “processed” a significant chunk of it, even though Settings tells me I have over 200GB of device memory available. My remedy: (a) 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. (2) factory reset my iPad when that method fails (which is approximately every other month) 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 export, certain clips have audio that is shifted ahead or behind the video by a significant margin.
Great place to start, but terrible to continue.
by Ze Operator on 2020/06/26 01:00
I’ll get straight to the point - the app does its job in acting as a post-production workstation, even on its mobile version. You can certainly make a nice film out of it if you try hard enough. Unfortunately, there is a severe lack of tools and a heavy amount of restriction that actually make it worth coming back to. Things like limiting the aspect ratio on photo (with the default setting to apply ken burns when usually it’s a filler method to make photos look good. There’s absolutely no need to add ken burns to EVERY photograph), limiting the amount of audio files attached to each slide to 4 per shot, limited amount of transitions, filters, and just a heavy restriction overall in terms of what movie we want to make over conventional work. Naturally, everyone has to start somewhere. But simply letting a workstation limit the amount that you can do for a movie is almost like mitigating wanting to make a good home movie at all. Feel free to use this. But if you’re a seasoned post-production editor, please consider the following before you use this.
Good editing app!!
by GirlGam3r73 on 2020/03/17 00:07
This app is good for editing and I highly recommend it if you enjoy making videos There’s just some things I wish it had, and it could improve it dramatically. The option to freeze music: I enjoy making music sync videos, but it’s hard to when I can’t freeze the music, so I might do something that could cause me to have to re-edit the entire thing, which can be a pain. Be able to move text around: If this was added I wouldn’t have a use for CuteCut because that’s all I use CC for, is to have moveable text. Custom zooming: With this, you could slowly zoom in and out in the video depending on how long the zoom duration lasts. And to go along with that, being able to cut smaller sections of video (and to have to option to turn off auto snapping in the video, what I mean by that is when you’re in the middle of a transition, like actually IN BETWEEN 2 clips, it moves over to which ever one the play head is closest to, that’s what I mean) because it gets annoying to have to cut areas of a video, than extend it back again because I can’t cut a certain section, or the playhead just automatically moves over There’s some problems I’ve encountered 1: When I’m done editing a video, there will be an audio delay where there wasn’t before in the raw video 2. Sometimes, the entire thing will refuse the keep playing, OR let me edit. The app will crash when I try to on said videos.
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. :)

by jjjjjhhhhyf on 2021/05/09 16:25
I used to love iMovie, but now I offloaded it to save space and it won’t reinstall. Either this is a problem with your app or just something apple did. This made me very angry and I no longer like this app if it is a problem with the app and if this is what I can expect from it.
What fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

by TammyD27 on 2021/05/08 04:30
I have made 2 movies of special events this past year and presented them on video conference. The participants loved them. It is a very easy to use app so for this I do give it a five. The movies I made were very stirring. I love the ability to record or add my own music. Yet my complaint is as mentioned in other reviews. It zooms picture clips way too close. You need an option to view the whole pic not just a focus on part of it. But overall you will make photo movies that touch the heart.

I have over a 150 GB in storage and the app is informing that I don’t have enough storage, then on top of that I can’t even upload directly to YouTube.
Mistakes were made
by coopercb26 on 2021/05/07 02:19
To be honest the main reason I downloaded this app is so I could edit YouTube videos easily, but recently I noticed they no longer let you upload to YouTube and now I’m stuck not being able to edit so I uninstalled.

Very simple app like useless
by Husam Altaee on 2021/05/06 10:33
Are used this app for two years and for each project I discover a huge weak points in the app especially when you add photos between videos you can’t minimize all maximize the size of picture and there is a lot of weed points, I think this app is useless unless if they add more option to make it at least good to use
A few problems but it’s great.
by Theswad901 on 2021/05/05 23:56
I love this and I use it to edit all of my YouTube videos. However, there are a few issues I have with the app. One, you can’t have more than one photo on a video at a time. Two, you can’t do a slow zoom into something like your face or an object. Three, there are still some stability issues where it will glitch out for no reason. Other than that, great app.

by OMEGA_CVII on 2021/05/02 18:58
Not intuitive, bad UI, pretty much no freedom of editing. Couldn’t even put more than one box of text up nor could I make it so that they appeared at different parts of the video. Stuff saves over itself. Couldn’t put together an uncut, 7 second video with two text boxes appearing 2 seconds apart. Couldn’t even find a decent workaround using the app and photos in tangent. Waste of my time and will be a waste of others’ time as well. If these functions do, in fact, exist, then they are not well implemented in the slightest. Feels lazy and sloppy.

I love iMovie and how you can use it for a lot of different stuff but there is just this one glitch. It will not let me add photos anymore. Please fix this. I also have a suggestion. Well two. First, I think it would be cool to have a lot cooler transitions. Like the ones in other editing apps. Also, can you please make it so I can add my fav music. Thanks!!
Amazing
by Qniner on 2021/05/01 11:42
I can’t believe this app is only getting 4 stars. I guess that means I’m an amateur. This app is amazing to me. I had to put together a safety video project for work. It was so good, the District manager called me personally. They apparently thought I either hired someone or used some expensive computer software. When I told them I did the whole thing on my IPhone 12 Pro…. They were blown away. Apparently I work with a bunch of Android users😁 Anyway… the video was part of a competition against branches in our region which stretches across 4 states. My manager told me the competition was over the second I hit send after uploading it to You Tube. I think this app is awesome. Thx Apple.

Not that good
by MB-Bella on 2021/04/30 19:36
So I like iMovie but sometimes i will want a background in back of me. But I am going to have a green screen. I see other app’s that you don’t need a green screen and you can just add a background. Every time I’m trying to record a sound it does’t it really hear me and it’s so annoying. When i am recording i am going to say thing’s real loud.
Not enough free space error
by JulieAnn81 on 2021/04/30 19:24
Make an awesome video, try to save, and I get a “there’s not enough free space” to save or export error. There is plenty of space! Now I have projects stuck in the program with no way of getting them saved. So disappointing.

The only thing I would change Is to update the green screen because sometimes it does not work. Thank you and have a great day!

Fix the inability to rotate trailers please!!!!!
by Don't Want To Pay Twice on 2021/04/29 23:30
If I film in landscape mode then that’s how I want it to appear. If I film in portrait mode then that’s how I want it. The inability to choose is unfathomable and write frankly annoying.

My Concerns
by JadeGSTT on 2021/04/28 12:53
This app is a good app for editing.My concern is that every time I delete a clip it takes me back to the beginning!!! This app is very “unstable”. The app is very slow and I know it’s not my phone due to me getting it last week. I have videos to upload and this just makes it take a extended amount of time.
worst app ever

This app does allow you to edit to your full ability. The only problem I have is when I’m editing, the video starts to glitch and I don’t know why, I have seen other people with this problem on YouTube but they only explain how to fix it if you edit on a computer and I edit on a tablet!!!

Great app for movie making.
by TheAppReviewer! on 2021/04/27 19:51
On iPad: iMovie is a tool I use a lot to make movies. It is good for beginners, and has a lot of effects and options. On Macbook: iMovie on Macbook has much more features than iMovie on iPad. You can add multiple layers to your video instead of just one, and there are many more text and audio effects. Recommendation for Developers: You should change it so all photos taken inside iMovie are stored in iMovie instead of taking up space in your photos app. This uses up storage on your device quickly and is unreasonable, seeing as most people just want the finished movie in their photos. Overall: I would recommend that younger or less experienced people start with iMovie for iPad as it has enough features for a great movie and is intuitive and easy for beginners. After you are older or more interested in the more complicated features of movie making, DEFINITELY USE IMOVIE FOR MACBOOK! It is great and comes with iPhones, iPads, and Macs for free. It has so many great features. Alas, this is an amazing app, and I would give it five stars, but I’m The Reviewer!, and I only give perfect apps five stars.
Fantastic!
by tamon14 on 2021/04/27 17:46
I decided to review this only after seeing so many 4-star reviews. Here’s the bottom line: This is a 5-star app. So many reviews that give it less than 5-stars sound like they’re expecting an editing program that compares to a $2000.00, movie studio-quality editing program. This is a free program that allows you to edit movies on your phone! It is fantastic for that! If you want more, buy some super-expensive software and get all the bells and whistles you want. But for basic video editing that you can do on your phone, this app is outstanding!
Won’t allow me to select clip
by Dreamscape82 on 2021/04/27 16:33
With the new update you guys have a bug or something going on. I been using this app for over a year now to edit my videos but with this new update I struggle to select a clip to create. It won’t allow me to select it. I have to repeatedly restart the app to fix this, sometimes even restart my phone. I’ve even tried uninstalling the app and reinstalling it, done that twice so far. Still same issue. This is the worst issue I’ve ran across but there is more. Please fix this issue! This app I would be a five star for me but I can’t give it that with this issue that has been ongoing for about two months now or so. Usually it has a select clip option and highlights blue when it selects the clip But now it highlights a gold looking color when you tap the clip you want and it don’t give the option to select and create movie clip. This is so frustrating I have no idea what you guys did in this new update but this was never a issue until about two months ago. How can I create my movie clips if it’s not giving me the option to select and create the movie? I found the best way past this is tapping the select all option in which will select all videos in that column which can be up to 3 to 5 different recent videos, so I’ve been having to do that then go back through when it creates it into the editing table and delete the clips I did not want. Wow! Can you see how frustrating and time consuming this bug can be!? Very frustrating! Please fix it!
How
by Acceleread on 2021/04/27 07:23
How is this happening, also this update is NOT fixing bugs it’s making more. When you put audio in you can’t hear it, And the videos are deleting themselves.

Needs some bug fixes
by Sarge Reviews on 2021/04/26 11:18
It’s good for a freebie. But it definitely needs some updates, especially on iPhone. Frequently after doing hours of edits on a video, then trying to export, iMovie will say there’s not enough space on your phone, even when there is plenty. That’s a pretty bad glitch, and it really needs to be updated soon. Also, on iPhone, the user should be able to select the resolution it is exported in… You film in 4K, give the user the option to export in 4K, or in the lower resolution if that’s desired. On iPhone, the app seems to pick the resolution for you instead of giving the user the choice. Just a few tweaks could actually make this into one of the best free be editing apps on the market.
Amazing, although could be better
by moonlight...devil on 2021/04/26 01:22
I love this app, and the editing is easy. I don’t want to compare this to any other app in particular, but others have a lot more to do, like transitions. I’ve noticed this app only has a few transitions! Not only that, but all of the trailers are a certain length. It would be a lot better if we could try making the, ourselves! If you could add a few more features to this app like the ones I will suggest, it would be a lot more fun. Suggestions: you could add more categories (stickers, overlay, exported audio etc.) it would make it more interesting to watch. You could add more transitions. That’s it, but overall this app is amazing!

For the last few days, app crashes like crazy
by Matthew T. Adrik on 2021/04/25 13:11
I have no idea what’s going on! iMovie has been mostly dependable in the past but now it’s crashing like crazy. I’m lucky to select 5 clips before it freezes, crashes, and makes me start all over again. One more day of this and I’m done. Will move on to another video editing app.
Now the purpose of it is gone
by Going Bananas For Bananas on 2021/04/25 04:11
I used to be able to upload my video to youtube, BUT NOW I CANT WHICH WAS THE POINT OF IT!
Frustratingly needs an update ..
by fudgemerightinthemouth on 2021/04/25 04:04
Keeps crashing everything I get closer to creating a masterpiece & that’s the whole reason I upgraded my devices, so I feel a little sold short because the app is very great and easy to navigate. Yet it comes at the risk of an unsaved project crashing out of nowhere, randomly.
Awesome! Little suggestion..
by ⛓🥀 ᴋᴇɴᴢ 🥀⛓ on 2021/04/25 03:01
iMovie is what I edit my YouTube videos on. It’s a great app, on a laptop. I use it on mobile so it’s less convenient for me but I still love it. One of my suggestions is to be able to move and size stuff. I’ve been looking for the most used editing app for YouTube Chanel’s and I cant find one that’s better then iMovie!
Very very good!
by GoodPerson4Life on 2021/04/25 00:14
So at first when I first started to make my channel I had no way to edit them and it would really bring me down, but now thanks to a good friend I have that told me about this and now my channel has improved a lot thanks to iMovie!

This app is amazing and all but when I try to make my video shorter it's hard to do it because it always turns to the front and I can't make it shorter because it's too long.
Needs an update
by crm408 on 2021/04/24 23:20
The fact that you cannot delete the photos and stuff that made the footage look more complete drags it down and combined with the storage warning before if I download it to my camera that it doesnt let me pick my options like sending it to google classroom for examples just makes such an otherwise good app not even worth it. The bad severly outweighs the good
Wonderful app, but one minor issue...
by Chuuuuuuurp on 2021/04/24 18:43
This app is wonderful. It fulfills all of my needs! Well — almost all of them. I’m Judge Claude Frollo, and I therefore need to constantly get my Esmeralda content, but I need to make it all myself! You see, the WiFi in Notre Dame isn’t very powerful, so I can’t look her up on YouTube, or anything like that. I wish that you could see other people’s iMovie creations within the app, without the need for WiFi! Please create this feature, or I will have to continue to spend every day and night of my life making edits of Esmeralda. Sincerely, Judge Claude Frollo P.S. Please do this. Esmeralda’s worth all of Paris. 😉
Won’t download for no reason at all
by Rebbecka J. on 2021/04/24 08:55
I have been trying to redo load this app for so long that I’m just over it. I updated my phone after I seen it was somehow not downloaded anymore, and still, nothing. Now I’m just over it.

Horrible
by Liam OB on 2021/04/22 10:48
The “features” crash the app anytime. The exporting is the worst in any app or software I’ve ever used. It will tell you that you need more space on your device even if you have 200+ gigabytes of storage left on your device. I’m only trying to export a five minute video. Stay away from this app. Mind you I’m using an iPhone 11 so these things shouldn’t happen

Listing What Can Improve
by REMENTERTAINMENT on 2021/04/21 22:49
Setting your own default transition type when adding videos allowing selection of multiple videos when pressing the plus in a project technically a voiceover as it is known in the business I am in, allows you to hear the audio at a lower volume while you record – it just makes sense for workflow and I think it should be first on the list. allowing resizing of green screen elements added be them video or photo to a project Dash it would make the app magical to be honest with you. I think we can all attest that the only reason we download this app is to have it in our hand so let’s try to improve the versatility of the elements that you do have because the quality of these videos after a year of using this do have a limit and only creativity will get you around the limits. good job just keep adding 💯
Lowers FPS
by Nignog guy on 2021/04/21 20:54
Makes any video look choppy/horrible with low frames per second.
Needs some new things.
by SIM PLAYER 777BJ on 2021/04/21 19:32
This is a great app and I love using it. There are some things it needs though. It needs a lot of new sound affects. And I mean LOTS. I don’t remember the last time there where newly added sound affects. It’s way to small of a selection. Also the panning thing it does with slideshows that needs to be taken out or at least add a feature to disable the panning for the project. If that feature already exists it’s really hard to find. Please give this app the love it really needs.

Very nice app, Thank you developer.it deserve 5 stars.
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.
Won’t allow me to select clip
by Dreamscape82 on 2021/04/27 16:33
With the new update you guys have a bug or something going on. I been using this app for over a year now to edit my videos but with this new update I struggle to select a clip to create. It won’t allow me to select it. I have to repeatedly restart the app to fix this, sometimes even restart my phone. I’ve even tried uninstalling the app and reinstalling it, done that twice so far. Still same issue. This is the worst issue I’ve ran across but there is more. Please fix this issue! This app I would be a five star for me but I can’t give it that with this issue that has been ongoing for about two months now or so. Usually it has a select clip option and highlights blue when it selects the clip But now it highlights a gold looking color when you tap the clip you want and it don’t give the option to select and create movie clip. This is so frustrating I have no idea what you guys did in this new update but this was never a issue until about two months ago. How can I create my movie clips if it’s not giving me the option to select and create the movie? I found the best way past this is tapping the select all option in which will select all videos in that column which can be up to 3 to 5 different recent videos, so I’ve been having to do that then go back through when it creates it into the editing table and delete the clips I did not want. Wow! Can you see how frustrating and time consuming this bug can be!? Very frustrating! Please fix it!
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 ☺️
I’ve only seen 1080P results on an iPhone 8
by FOFS on 2019/12/05 22:54
As far as I can tell, iMovie works great. I had to do some overlay stuff (PIP) which required me to look up instructions for that online, and I learned a lot about other more “advanced” features as well. Once, during many, many edits of a short video, it did seem to stop working, so I just restarted it. I’m looking forward to adding my own music next to see how that works. It’s super easy once you get the hang of it after searching specific online instructions. I mean, skip the basic feature instructions, they are already very straightforward and more or less intuitive. And what a bargain it is!👍 Meanwhile, those other video editing apps might not even have the some of the features you want, except maybe for an extra charge, and/or vampirize your wallet with regular subscription fees, charge $90 for a one time fee, and end up having you in fetal position shaking like a leaf in a corner somewhere wondering how you, at least temporarily, lost that full, unlocked app you already paid a much better price for that went to a $ubscription plan. If this app crashes on your phone or iPad, I don’t have anything supercalifragilistic to say about that. So far, I have no complaints in that department whatsoever.
LOVE IT
by happy panacorn on 2020/05/15 22:41
This....is......the......best......editing......software.....I’ve....ever....use. Other editing apps make everything over complicated by making it look all “professional” or “easy”. Some apps make it so you can’t find anything and you have to enter all these strange unhelpful commands while others all you can do is plop the video in, put in a filter, and maybe add some random sounds. But this app is so good! You can do so much with it, it’s super easy, AND if you are willing to spice things up you can put it into pro mode where you can do even more! It’s even better because IT HAS A FRICKING UNDO BUTTON! It’s so helpful if you made a big mistake and you don’t want to have to do it all over again! It also has so many transitions that are so fun to play with along with the funny and awesome sound effects (my favorite it the time travel one) the only thing I have to complained about is that the default transition is fade and so I have to go through my entire video and put it to the standard one witch really annoys me I would also like a *BLEEP* sound effect because it’s so good for humor and if someone says...something... but other than that it’s so good and I don’t understand why it’s only rated 3.9 stars WHEN IT CLEARLY DESERVES A 4.5! soooo yea that’s all I have to say!
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.
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.😊
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.
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.
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.

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!!
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!
a few things you really need to fix (READ)
by Sk8tr05 on 2018/02/10 17:32
it used to be really good, but lately it's been having trouble. i have an iphone 7 so i know it's not my phone. here's a few things you could fix: 1. let us crop it instead of having it always stay horizontal. i have vertical videos i put on there and it puts borders on the side and zooms straight in to the middle. if that's what you call a great editing app, i've seen better. i like lots of the features on imovie, but it's hard to use. 2. sometimes when i'm editing it just stops and doesn't let me change anything and moves the clips around where i dont want them. so i press done then edit it again and the video just goes black and i can't even play it. that's my main issue because i always have to keep starting over and it doesn't even let me save the video after it breaks. 3. maybe have the quality a little better? i press the highest quality when i'm done and it comes out much worse than before i even put it in imovie. please give thought to actually fixing it, because this app does have very good features, but it makes editing confusing and way harder than it needs to be.
Why I think it’s good
by boysarenotmyfavoritename on 2019/07/23 21:57
So I know you guys had some bad reviews, but it looks fine to me. I don’t know am I crazy? Are people over reacting? I don’t really make movies I just make trailers, I don’t know if there is something wrong with movies but everything seems fine with trailers. I mean overall it’s good. There was another app where everything there you needed to buy. I glad you can actually film in this one. Me and my friends love making trailers on this app. I hope it doesn’t get shut down. To be honest I don’t think anything is wrong with it. I just never make movies maybe someone makes movies and is really mad it’s broken. But you shouldn’t really care about audio anyways. At least they gave you music. You should enjoy the app. The only complaint I have is I’m on an iPad and I used iMovie on a computer once and the computer has more trailers? Is it a new update? Honestly I still love iMovie. Thank you.
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.
Not bad, but it’s missing something...
by Little Workhorse on 2021/03/25 14:50
I have used iMovie ever since I’ve had this iPad. It’s simple, easy to understand, and fun. But there are three thing I would like to see added to give a little bit more control. 1. More control over volume and sound design. Like having the the volume slider plus bass gain and distortion sliders so you can make an audio recording sound vintage, huge, or just plain silly. 2. More control over speed and pitch. The speed control slider is already intuitive, but instead of going to 2x speed, I think it should go up to 8x speed to match 1/8th speed. I would like for a separate pitch control slider because having pitch controlled by speed and vice versa is now feeling a bit limiting. 3. The addition of explosion, gunfire, and engine sound effects and the ability to use tracks from Apple Music. The explosion sound effects can just be regular old explosions, same as gunfire, but both should have a distant and close-up variant. The engine sound effect should be up that of a V8 with muffled and straight-piped variants. You should be able to chose starting rpm, ending rpm and load for each clip. For example, you would add the straight-piped V8 sound effect, choose a 3250 rpm start, a 6500 rpm end, full load. It should sound a lot like an LS, which is technically the most common American V8. Other than that, it’s a really fun app. So, I guess you could keep the controls simple, otherwise, it’s not really iMovie anymore.
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?
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
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.
Would be great if deleting media was possible on the iPhone
by Dude1437 on 2021/01/30 16:09
Typically to delete media from iMovie library, you have to go into the iMovie media library and remove the clips from there. There is no way to do this with iOS 14 now. This works on the MacBook and iPad, but after the iOS 14 update on the iPhone, there is no way to do this on the phone. The only way for me to clear up that data on the iPhone is to do a complete uninstall and re-install of the app on my phone. Or transfer the media to iCloud, but that is another headache which should be optional. A lot of the clips that I want to delete from iMovie media are junk clips that I don’t even want on iCloud because I know that I am not going to use them again and want them gone. This is absolutely ridiculous and a complete waste of time and space. Please, add a delete option for clips in the iMovie media library ON THE IPHONE, not just on the computers. Please! I absolute love iMovie, but simply clearing up my iMovie media library should not be impossible for the iPhone.
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.
Great possibilities, major memory management flaws
by P. Jones Moody on 2021/01/27 17:17
Generally, it all works very well, but there are some issues that remain unresolved: 1) Memory usage, especially when exporting the final product. There seems to be a hidden memory cache that doesn’t get wiped as often as needed. I have often run into issues with the app telling me there is not enough memory to share the project, after it has already “processed” a significant chunk of it, even though Settings tells me I have over 200GB of device memory available. My remedy: (a) 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. (2) factory reset my iPad when that method fails (which is approximately every other month) 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 export, certain clips have audio that is shifted ahead or behind the video by a significant margin.
Great place to start, but terrible to continue.
by Ze Operator on 2020/06/26 01:00
I’ll get straight to the point - the app does its job in acting as a post-production workstation, even on its mobile version. You can certainly make a nice film out of it if you try hard enough. Unfortunately, there is a severe lack of tools and a heavy amount of restriction that actually make it worth coming back to. Things like limiting the aspect ratio on photo (with the default setting to apply ken burns when usually it’s a filler method to make photos look good. There’s absolutely no need to add ken burns to EVERY photograph), limiting the amount of audio files attached to each slide to 4 per shot, limited amount of transitions, filters, and just a heavy restriction overall in terms of what movie we want to make over conventional work. Naturally, everyone has to start somewhere. But simply letting a workstation limit the amount that you can do for a movie is almost like mitigating wanting to make a good home movie at all. Feel free to use this. But if you’re a seasoned post-production editor, please consider the following before you use this.
Good editing app!!
by GirlGam3r73 on 2020/03/17 00:07
This app is good for editing and I highly recommend it if you enjoy making videos There’s just some things I wish it had, and it could improve it dramatically. The option to freeze music: I enjoy making music sync videos, but it’s hard to when I can’t freeze the music, so I might do something that could cause me to have to re-edit the entire thing, which can be a pain. Be able to move text around: If this was added I wouldn’t have a use for CuteCut because that’s all I use CC for, is to have moveable text. Custom zooming: With this, you could slowly zoom in and out in the video depending on how long the zoom duration lasts. And to go along with that, being able to cut smaller sections of video (and to have to option to turn off auto snapping in the video, what I mean by that is when you’re in the middle of a transition, like actually IN BETWEEN 2 clips, it moves over to which ever one the play head is closest to, that’s what I mean) because it gets annoying to have to cut areas of a video, than extend it back again because I can’t cut a certain section, or the playhead just automatically moves over There’s some problems I’ve encountered 1: When I’m done editing a video, there will be an audio delay where there wasn’t before in the raw video 2. Sometimes, the entire thing will refuse the keep playing, OR let me edit. The app will crash when I try to on said videos.
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. :)
