Saves videos and photos to photos
by BrayPax on 2021/03/04 01:30
When I need more room I have to delete the videos/photos and it runes the Movie. 😔
Absolutely amazing to use! The green screen though.
by J4CKI3 CH4N on 2021/03/04 01:08
The fact that the app is already in the phone amazes me because of the satisfaction not going through a hassle trying to get an editing app. Everything works the way it’s designed to and I always use heavy green screen effect and I realized I’m not allowed to move the green screen effect in different areas only in the middle. I believe there should be a way to move the green screen effect but other than that I love this amazing app!
Awesome!!!!!
by MWH17 on 2021/03/03 21:47
This is the best!!!!!!!
What happened to the text feature
by ppooooopppk90 on 2021/03/03 20:00
What happened?
Great but one issue
by lolfhfhdhfuhfudf on 2021/03/03 19:45
Love it, but it takes forever to download and that was iffy for more but long shot I LOVE IT
Impossible to share
by bskamansk on 2021/03/03 16:20
Sure it’s a fun app and all, but I cant even send it anywhere. Not through messages, email, or anything else. Or maybe it’s just not suitable for phone I guess. I just can’t seem to be able to put it anywhere except my files.
Impossible with phone
by ARGHHGGGGH on 2021/03/03 16:19
It won’t allow me to download or share, and it’s so useless. I do not suggest this app at all there are so much better editing softwares.
YouTube
by TopzzFN on 2021/03/03 16:14
I can’t no longer send it to YouTube its like it just disappeared.
Help with Vertical Videos
by TheWaterWolves on 2021/03/03 13:31
Can you make it to where we can edit full vertical videos instead of them being a box!
It needs to be accessible with voiceover
by Hennessy Garcia on 2021/03/02 23:57
This is not that accessible with voiceover. I’m completely blind and I need it to be more accessible please.
Amazing
by av an b on 2021/03/02 22:35
One thing I wish you could draw on to the video
Awesome!
by Keiko Quin on 2021/03/02 21:29
I think this app is amazing for editing YouTube videos! You guys really did a great job!
FIVE. FREAKING. STARS.
by Anyone Just Guess on 2021/03/02 19:28
I don’t understand how I haven’t found this sooner. I can’t believe how easy this is... and I can’t believe it’s free! I need to make a video project and this app allows me to combine my clips into one video. GET. THIS. NOW.
Why
by sqash27 on 2021/03/02 18:13
Why did you get rid of the speed controls for the background music? I wanted to speed it up to make it sound funny but I couldn’t ☹️
Basic functionality missing
by Pixel Sage on 2021/03/02 06:48
Who decided to eliminate aspect ratio control? Instant 1-star eating.
So goood
by Awesom kid on 2021/03/02 02:00
This thing is amazing
Good but has some issues
by JonahGames on 2021/03/02 00:25
This seems like a good thing to use for YouTube, but there is one issue, it takes forever for movies to download from iCloud and sometimes it doesn’t even budge, can you fix this?
Ok
by Soy sauce face on 2021/03/01 21:33
It is an ok app but is a little cringe and has really funny music too.FYI I only got this app to make people cringe and 😆.
Download from ICloud🚫
by BAM829 on 2021/03/01 02:43
Stop dis😡👿! STOP DOWNLOADING FROM ICLOUD IT’S ANNOYING. AND I HATE IT!!! It doesn’t do this to JUST the MOVIE TRAILERS! They do this to the MOVIES to!! When you don’t see the video for long. YOU COME BACK AND SEE. DOWNLOADING from ICloud 🥺ooh! That’s cute but STOP YOU STUPID IMOVIE and ICLOUD!
It’s amazing I think!!!!
by talky miss talk on 2021/03/01 02:29
It’s so fun! You can do so many things you can also do green screen! I love this stuff!
iMovie Rating
by Zenanathaniel on 2021/03/01 01:55
iMovie on mobile devices I would say it’s a 4/5. iMovie on MacBook is so amazing. But because i don’t have a mac I can’t say that is this something that i like you use a lot for my videos. I like Inshot and the reason I have iMovie so because of the green screen. Once I get a Macbook I would say it’s a 5/5. Until then I will only use it for green screen!
Amazing app
by Cat Gnat on 2021/02/28 23:43
I absolutely LOVE this app so much. But the only thing is please add fart and laugh effect on sound effects
perfect for making fanpage audios! 💗💗
by aaaappooo on 2021/02/28 22:30
i love this app bc you make make fanpage audios if you don't have any BUT the is ONE PROBLEM when i go to lower the volume of a audio it only goes down to 70 and then 50 so if you can change that it would be amazing!!!! anyhow everything else is amazing keep up the amazing work bebs! Sincerely, charlseurs
I love this app so much
by nacyspizzamojo+1995 on 2021/02/28 22:30
Guys this app is amazing although I wish you can change the size if you’re doing green screen/blue screen because then it would be better but this app is so amazing since that you can do videos for audio only it’s only been a break through for my channel thank you so much guys for creating this app it’s such a lovely app it’s Really awesome also my channel I couldn’t edit videos without iMovie
Almost literally perfect
by 👍👍👍🤟🏻ant on 2021/02/28 16:12
So iMovie is almost perfect in every way. Except.... I wish there was VFX on IPhone! That’s my only problem which I’m sure others have this problem. Otherwise it’s great! There is green screen and filters and all that fun stuff.
App crash with the titles! Not gonna mess with it!
by hero's crater on 2021/02/28 15:50
Okay, I was trying a text, nothing weird but, then a weird thing happens! A classic, traditional, annoying app crash! I try another text, the same thing happens again! Now with NO choice but to make a video saying “One week later’’, without the words, so out of place! Please fix this! I still love the app but still!
Great, but I wish the app had a better text feature
by Chloe Andersen on 2021/02/28 15:10
So, I edit all of my videos on iMovie! Great for cutting, clipping, muting, and speeding things up. Well, great for just all around video editing! Well, except the text feature. They are really meant for titles, and don’t really fit what I need. If only they could set it so that you could have multiple on screen at once, set the duration rather than randomly staring and going away, not fade away and in in cool ways(great for titles but not what I want) and multiple different fonts. Other than that 💯! Great app!

Why remove the option to upload to YouTube. It was literally the only reason to use this dumb app
Horrible
by The k man from tcu on 2021/02/28 07:05
This is by far the worst video editing software
I can’t use this
by audB.23 on 2021/02/28 03:18
It’s so confusing to me cause I’m new to it and it the middle of night so I’m not checking it out now I’m wait till morning then I’ll check
I LOVE this
by ajesen on 2021/02/28 00:40

Terrible
by grama poop on 2021/02/28 00:07
Now I am a YouTube or JW domino but I just wanted to try and post a Minecraft video but then I made it around 30 minutes but then when I actually create the movie like it doesn’t even have sound because apparently it’s too big because I never knew that iMovie had so many like limits like like I thought there was gonna be found no matter how long it is but like apparently not it’s a terrible app don’t buy it
Imovie
by hsihhdjdhdhx on 2021/02/27 23:16
The imovie is the best app i ever used to make movies i highly recommend to use this app if you want to edit video because you can make movies and trailer and it is fully free. You can edit any video if the video is 4k or 1080p it can edit it and it is offline. I love this app i highly recommend

InShot is so much better than this app so...GET INSHOT! !
THIS IS MY LIFE!!!
by Baby bunny queen on 2021/02/27 16:57
I LOVEEEE this app soooo much! I have used it since I was 8 and I have gotten better and BETTER at it! I make movies on it, I play around on it, and best of all there is no VIP $20 a month no everything is free! I hate apps whenever they are like hey for only 30 dollars a month you can have plus or VIP but this app treats everyone the same!!! I HIGHLY recommend this app but I was also thinking of maybe add a few different trailers and maybe add a few things that you can do with the trailers. Thanks iMovie for being part of my life!
Best editing app EVER!!!
by Lyla Rosewater on 2021/02/27 13:42
This is the best editing app I’ve ever used. I have a channel and this is the app I use... it’s amazing!!! I haven’t found everything that you can do but my friend helps me. She has iMovie too. Everyone that I know who has a YouTube channel uses iMovie! I highly recommend it! Great work! This is the best app ever! I love how it don’t have a watermark or anything else like that. I love it. And again, I highly recommend this!!! Love, Lyla
Very great
by ZMB510 on 2021/02/27 13:36
This app helps me edit these videos I could not edit and now I can I used filters but then I realized green screens are better and I screenshot photos that look real then edit then press photos then press all then press the screen shot photo then press the 3 dots then press green/blue screen then time it and it’s out perfect
Amazing best editing app ever but...
by 😁Eve on 2021/02/27 13:20
I wish the music that u provide on soundtracks would last longer but otherwise it is the best editing app EVER
Really fun but one problem...
by Eregit on 2021/02/27 13:12
I love making the movies and the trailers but when I delete the videos and photos it does not have them any more so I’m upset 😭 so... do not delete your videos and photos
I don’t know how to
by tyler blu wells on 2021/02/27 03:26
Dear iMovie can you tell me how to make a thumbnail and I have looked at the settings multiple times please and thank you.
Don’t work
by 178394646. on 2021/02/27 03:23
This is the worst editing system. It always close by itself and it won’t export movies
Great
by Tina Carol84 on 2021/02/26 23:55
Great app but I too run into issues with the app saying I don’t have enough memory to save my final product, even though I’ve got 60GB free. Some days it works great, others it refuses to work at all. I love this app, and I’d love it even more if it actually worked each time. Please fix! 🙏
Great app!
by IntenseAppStoreGamer on 2021/02/26 23:55
So I have been a long time iMovie user, and I have used it for a lot of my editing (I’ve also used it on Mac) and recently (I don’t know if this is the beta I have or if it’s an iMovie bug but) I haven’t been able to do anything. Once I open the app, it would kick me out after less than a minute. I am on a iPad 6 (2018 March). But otherwise, FANTASTIC APP! Good job Apple!
Amazing!
by Rollersk90 on 2021/02/26 22:11
This is great! I recommend!
Everything you need in a video editor
by suckmynuts2369 on 2021/02/26 21:56
So I used this app and it’s so good it has good transitions and it has extract audio just go to the plus sign and click video and click any audio and click the 3 dots and u see audio only u click that and there’s it so it’s very good I love it and it’s easy for beginners I recommend this app

by yhegreat72828 on 2021/02/25 23:17
I would like to comfrim that IMovie is a great app but fix some things like glitching and stuff and probably add some stickers and more transitions!
Very Good!
by Moonlight Dreams TM on 2021/02/25 20:06
I love editing with iMovie it’s pretty easy to edit m videos professionally but I wish you could make more than one song a background song because in a longer Vlog I use more than one song in the background and it gets kinda frustrating only be able to you one song in the foreground. That’s all!
I HATE THIS APP UGH
by jdjxisncuxhx on 2021/02/25 19:25
ITS HaRD AnD IMhAtE IT
It’s a great app until it isn’t.
by Truebpiblu on 2021/02/25 16:38
I’ve used this app on my phone on and off for a few videos. Unfortunately I just finished editing a 20 minute video that I spent a couple of hours putting together. The unfortunate part is that the app will not let me export it. It claims that there is not enough space on my device. However I have plenty of local space on the device itself. I say local because I’m not confusing my available local storage with cloud storage as some would believe. The only fix on the internet is “delete the app and re-download.” That’s a great solution except this means that I will have to restart the project from scratch. Other projects export without issue. This one project does not. In summation, the app is strong for an iOS based video editing app. Not as powerful as the Mac OS version but that’s to be expected. The troubleshooting capabilities are also incredibly limited as a result of it being an iOS app as well. Use at your own risk.
This app is horrible!
by Arkiox on 2021/02/25 16:31
When I first got the app, I thought that it was pretty cool. But when I started to edit more, I noticed that it always kept glitching and glitching, moving my recordings and my footage around for no reason, not letting me do certain things and having me restart the app every five seconds, and there are only like five types of texts that you can choose from, and each one has an annoying effect that I don’t want. And whenever I want to do the feature “picture in picture”, there is always a fade effect in the beginning and the end. This app is straight up annoying and glitches all the time. DO NOT GET THIS APP!!!
Needs more sound effects and music
by kazumi Aiko on 2021/02/25 04:35
The app is pretty good but I feel as though it needs more sounds. It has very few to choose from and it’s hard to find music that isn’t copyrighted as well so if iMovie had it, it would be the best video editor ever
BEST game EVER!🍭🍩🍡
by KWloveskitties299 on 2021/02/25 01:05
I love this app! I always play this app with my friends we think it’s so much fun but can you add more cool trailer things but don’t worry I still love it I’m assessed with it because it’s like I’m actually on a real movie! The trailer I want is rainbow cool stuff with mermaids
Epic app!!!
by Kistni on 2021/02/24 23:26
Ok so i really like imovie i make cool videos and its cool lol ٩(๑❛ᴗ❛๑)۶ e the end
Not compatible
by saurabhhpatel on 2021/02/24 22:15
It simply crops the portrait pictures and video, without giving an option or a fix
Not so bad or good..
by eekrkc on 2021/02/24 20:39
I just wish that I could edit stuff like put stuff in there and make it look so real :( please add that!

Can’t save files
by sven543 on 2021/02/24 17:18
Just a heads up...you can’t save your project if you want to start another. Ended up losing a project because of it. Not sure which mentally incapable person on apple thought that would be a good feature but it’s almost comical how annoying that is and that someone thought it would be a good idea

by Erica Rodriguez ibarra on 2021/02/24 04:20
You all need to bring back the option to share directly to YouTube !!!!!!!!! It’s so un convenient to have to download to the library and then share to YouTube !
Good app!👌🏻😊
by gygggtftfffytgijijuyg on 2021/02/24 02:06
OK so first off I love this app it is so cool. But, this review isn’t about the app at all. It is about that you probably don’t even read these. I mean, you should look at these and maybe you’ll see an idea that you really like. Also, if you do read these, then maybe you can send back a reply saying something nice like some other apps do. People write these reviews for a reason. It’s so that they can put in suggestions and tell you about how bad the app might be and glitches. But I to have a suggestion. You should make something where you can search up songs by artists such as Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello, Taylor Swift, Dove Cameron, and so on. Now, I get that it would kind of be copywriting but if someone does add a song and they want to post it on YouTube then you can say that you can’t post it on YouTube because it has a copyright song in it. I know this may be long but I hope you taking my suggestions and if you do just send me back a little note so that I know that you’ve read it. Thanks.👍🏻😊🤗

You have one format landscape
by John8989 on 2021/02/23 21:27
I hate that there’s only one way to make vids on this app and it’s in landscape view. Nothing else.
Mostly Perfect
by Happy Podcast Maker/Listener on 2021/02/23 21:13
This app is wonderful. You can make trailers, movies, and everything in-between! However, I do wish there was an option to add scrolling credits, because I enjoy making mini movies, so, yeah. The trailers are fun but need sound, like a REAL Hollywood trailer. Other than that, this app is amazing!

Lacking... everything
by NJfromMA on 2021/02/23 00:00
Barebones is an understatement with this app. Runs great, is super convenient, but it feels like you have no creative freedom at all. You can't even change the aspect ratio???

What use is a movie app that I can’t even put the music I paid for into my movies? It even says in the description that you can use your iTunes music but yet nothing. What a waste of time. Used to be an excellent app, guess you get what you pay for.
One problem
by sillymclillymcizzypants on 2021/02/21 20:35
When I’m trying to edit the length from the end it goes to the start. It’s a good app, and this one thing ruins it. Please fix this

So. It’s very rare that I leave a review on apps, but this one deserves it. I have been having an absolute blast with this, especially since I’ve really gotten into drone photography and it’s the perfect tool to make for video editing. My favorite feature honestly is making the movie trailers, it’s so fun with a compilation of media. The ONLY issue I have with it is that I’d love more freedom. Once you pick the general theme it predetermines what you can do. It boxes you into a certain amount of clips per section and has a variety of different kinds that you cant control whatsoever. So for example. One section in the trailer would have 3 slots for clips. The first one would be a .9 second, the next one would be a 3 second closeup (which is very annoying since it zooms way in on the picture or video and there’s nothing you can do to adjust it or stop it.) so if it’s a video it could focus in and cut out what you actually want to show in the clip which makes it impossible to use a lot of media. The third one could be 1.5 seconds. The fact that you can’t change the number of possible clips in a section and that you can’t change the duration of any of the clips is very frustrating. But beyond that this is an AMAZING app that I will love using for a long time, definitely worth having to be more strategic on what media I place where.
Great, But Here is a Suggestion
by QwQ GamerGirl on 2020/06/28 15:29
Yes, iMovie is a great movie and trailer or film maker, you can make retro trailers/films/movies, romance, teens, family, fairy tale, swashbuckler, expedition, superhero, scary, coming of age, indie, Bollywood, adrenaline, and narrative movies films or trailers. I know, a lot of options 😅. But... There should be an option where you can change the music and where you can have the images and videos you took on iMovie only be stored in the movies on your app, not the gallery. It is a huge waste of space for your device, especially if you make lots of movies/trailers like me. I wish you could make the trailers longer than a minute, and can make it 1-4 minutes at least for trailers. When making a trailer, you can’t hear any talking or sounds just music. Maybe still keep the music, because that is still cool, but make there a setting where you can turn off music and can hear talking and sounds. Still a very great app I recommend, but I am just hoping for an update that will change that and further experience in the update. I hope this is good enough to explain the change I’d be grateful for and to explain to others who might download this app. Please make this change though, if not, it’s fine but thx anyways ☺️
LOVE IT

This....is......the......best......editing......software.....I’ve....ever....use. Other editing apps make everything over complicated by making it look all “professional” or “easy”. Some apps make it so you can’t find anything and you have to enter all these strange unhelpful commands while others all you can do is plop the video in, put in a filter, and maybe add some random sounds. But this app is so good! You can do so much with it, it’s super easy, AND if you are willing to spice things up you can put it into pro mode where you can do even more! It’s even better because IT HAS A FRICKING UNDO BUTTON! It’s so helpful if you made a big mistake and you don’t want to have to do it all over again! It also has so many transitions that are so fun to play with along with the funny and awesome sound effects (my favorite it the time travel one) the only thing I have to complained about is that the default transition is fade and so I have to go through my entire video and put it to the standard one witch really annoys me I would also like a *BLEEP* sound effect because it’s so good for humor and if someone says...something... but other than that it’s so good and I don’t understand why it’s only rated 3.9 stars WHEN IT CLEARLY DESERVES A 4.5! soooo yea that’s all I have to say!
I’ve only seen 1080P results on an iPhone 8

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.
I am OBSESSED!
by ZGDfounder12 on 2020/10/03 00:08
I have been using this app since I was 6 years old and I FREAKIN LOVE IT!!! I especially love the new green/blue screen affect. I have made dozens and dozens of videos using this app. The only think that I would change is the trailer making part. I would like to add videos and clips into it that have sound and optionally hear the sound. I also would like to be able to add audio in the background. (Like in movie trailers when you hear the characters talking in the background) I also think that the green screen could be easier to use. It doesn’t work very well at all unless you have an actual green or blue screen which pretty much none of us are going to have. I also think that you should bring back the theatre. It saved me so much space because I could actually delete the videos and pics from my photos but the movie is still saved. And you might think that with these complaints I would do 4 or 3 stars but these are minor issues, there is nothing big, and I just love everything else so much I have to do 5 star. There are always going to be things that aren’t perfect but there are only a short couple with this app and I recommend it to all. DOWNLOAD NOW!!

by ewdcfz v on 2021/01/15 17:08
Ok so this is not an app I downloaded T-Mobile did it for me on my iPhone 12 which i got yesterday yay! Btw I’m a kid so it’s like a big thing for me before I had the iPhone XR , anyway this app I have seen people make agsm’s ( American girl stop motion) but I’m not exactly sure on how to use the app I thought it would be where I make a scene press pause add some effects blah blah blah etc but I don’t see any features near that and I would certainly like to use this app but if I would download this on my own time I would kinda maybe rue the fact that I did by this I don’t mean any offense to anybody by this review but I think it’s pretty similar to the. “ clips” app but I like clips better T-Mobile also happened to download it for me and it’s cool and easier to use I guess so maybe I’m just new and I don’t understand but if I do understand it later on I will make a new review. Wow! This is long I’m going to go now and review the other apps T-Mobile downloaded for me because I like to review apps. Hope this helps!:-). Update I’m going to try and use this for a gatcha life vid I will get back when it’s done with info
Update: uploaded 4K at 60fps... at last.
by SnazzDab on 2020/11/27 16:54
I have an iPad 6th generation, and the description of this app says I should be able to export at 60 FPS for 4K video. I’ve had immense difficulty uploading 4K video at 60 FPS previously, but it just worked for me. The video was extremely short, being less than three (3) minutes in length, but it did finally work. Last week (Nov 20, 2020), I couldn’t even upload at 30 FPS if I tried to export the project as a 4K video, which was extremely irritating. That was on the shorter end of a normal-length video for me, being only 6 minutes and 40 seconds. Usually my videos are at least 7-8 minutes, as I try to aim for 10 minute videos. I would like to aim for longer videos, as my 25 minute video really took off for how small my channel is, but I’m not sure if I would be able to export that in 4K, and even if I could, I’m not sure if it would have to be 30 FPS, or if I could export it in 60 FPS. For reference, i film exclusively in 4K 60 FPS, so all of my videos are high quality. That’s why I find it immensely irritating to have this limitation in the editing software when the description of the app says I can export in 4K 60 FPS and I have the 6th generation iPad, so I should be able to, yet it’s given me so much trouble when I try to. Hence the 2-star review. At least it’s gained one star.
Not as great as I remember
by juststankylegandmoveon on 2020/05/20 01:53
When I started using iMovie as an beginner’s tool a couple years back, it was very easy to use and understand. Every video I made came out exactly as I edited it, and I could do it for hours on end with no issues. Now, I have moved on to other softwares as I’ve improved, but I came back to this one to use as a base for my more simple clips and audios; plus I already knew how to use it and expected it to be just as easy as I remembered. But, coming back, I notice how it keeps crashing, whether it is a sudden black screen that forces me back to my home screen a second later, or even glitches within the app. For instance, I tried changing the volume of an audio by selecting it—and it split it where I had selected it?? It may sound like a small bug, but it gets very frustrating when it happens over and over again and I have to undo it. It was never like that before. Same issue with clips, sometimes it won’t even let me select one I want to crop or slow down, etc. It forces me to leave the project, the app itself, sometimes even to the point of turning my phone off just to get it running again—just to get it to crash again. I really hope you guys find this and fix even the small issues, iMovie was so brilliant before.
Glitches from iOS 12.3.1 update
by RannyPanny on 2019/07/10 23:19
Please, Please, Please Fix! I only use iMovie and usually love it...however, Since the latest update for my iPad that includes green screen there are a variety of issues making the app difficult to use....I feel very inconvenienced after having to start again and edit an hour long movie three times! Lagging start and editing, Greyed out clips and a black preview screen, glitches....overlays blacked out, some clips fine some blacked out, also after adding new clips to the edit when I press to play the movie it says it’s “downloading from iCloud” but it never does. I have iCloud Photo Library option on “Keep Originals”, and the iCloud option for iMovie off, yet it still tries to download from it. I even signed out of my device and but it gives the same message. If all the clips used in the project are in full resolution on my iPad, I signed out of iCloud AND I had the setting on “keep originals” why is it still trying to download from this cloud?. The other perfectly fine clips also glitch and sometimes say the same message. All the clips ultimately alternate from being fine to acting out and being blacked out and glitching. Movie taking forever to load or freezing..have tried troubleshooting by restarting the movie from scratch...Same thing happening since update.
OH MY WORD I LOVE THIS APP!!! 😍😍
by Edog🐶🐶 on 2020/11/28 02:01
Hi everybody! I love the app IMovie. It all started on one Saturday night when my friend was over. I was making a commercial for my fake toy store just for kicks and then my friend asked, “Are you using IMovie?” I had no clue what IMovie was. She said it was an app that you can make trailers and movies on it. The very next day I decided to try out IMovie, sense it was already on my IPad ( for some reason it came on my IPad.) I didn’t know how to work the app, so I just kind of left IMovie alone for awhile. A few days later, I was randomly at my friend’s house. We made a movie trailer on IMovie, but we did’t get to make the movie. That afternoon when I got home, I decided to give IMovie another try because I now understood how to work it after watching my friend use it. From then on, I kept on making trailers. I never do the movies, but I make SO many trailers. I make them with my friends, and my family. It’s so fun to make them and then show them to your family. Overall, I totally recommend this app for making trailers. Thank you for reading, and I hope you try IMovie. God bless you, and stay safe.😊
AMAZING APP!! DOWNLOAD NOW!
by Triple8Gaming on 2020/12/14 22:29
Ok, so I don’t leave reviews for apps barely, but I’m going to because this is like one of my most favorite apps. So I am a small YouTuber (Triple8Gaming plz sub) and I’ve used iMovie since summer of 2020, (I mostly do videos on ROBLOX btw) and I’ve LOVED IT. My videos have been getting lost of views because of it. And the newest update to text and stuff is something I’ve wanted since I got it!!! And the background is something I’ve really wanted as well. iMovie is really awesome as well cuz u don’t have to pay money and it’s quick and ez but GREAT! You can trim on it, there’s plenty of music, but I recommend maybe some more popular music, but anyways, I totally think you should get it, because seriously, this is my favorite and best editor I got. Sure, it doesn’t do everything, but it’s still really great! But one thing. Something that I recommend for the next update is coloring, stickers, maybe some sort of cool effects you can put on, and stuff like that. But anyways, that’s it, thank you for reading this, and I hope you have a great day! ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Ughhh
by Balletgurl22 on 2020/12/07 00:05
Ok, first things first. You said that when we updated it several previous problems would be fixed. They were not. I looked at the list and none of the issues were fixed. I was excited when I got to update iMovie with all of the new things but my expectations were not met. It gives you the choice of either keeping the text shadow or not. I thought it made the titles look horrible so I took it away. But after two hours, the text shadow always went back on. Next, I am having several other problems. I decided to use iMovie for a school project but it failed me. My dad was going over some things I should edit and I tried to adjust the time of the video so you could read the full thing, but the tool bar with actions, speed, volume, titles, and filters were not working. Three of the choices were grayed out and I was unable to change the accidental mistake. Also, when I got a new iPad, I was also unhappy. I had saved all of the iMovies, but when I got back on the app, all of my previously made movies disappeared. I could not find them anywhere and all of the movies I dedicated my time too, were lost.
Pretty good
by gssfsbsbzvzvzvzhgsgsv hi 0k on 2020/11/23 12:54
I love this app and it is amazing I have always wanted to make movies and become a detector but the trailers make me crazy you can’t make noise from the movie like in real trailers over the music and you can only put certain amounts of clips and you can’t even choose what music and all that is so annoying I hate it like trailers are to show the awesome parts of your movie but because of all that that is impossible to do with this app please make that better now for the other thing this app has completely failed for me I can’t play on it anymore it keeps saying I need to re-download and when I do it says I have to do it again and again and again however if I ever get back into this app again I will play it all the time I love the it is really pretty good I just wish the the trailers were better and less defective I mean it even ruins the clips you can put in by zooming in and cropping and stuff like that I need that fixed please but minus that the app is amazing I just wish it would let me in cause honestly without the annoying trailers it is amazing and I love it
Speedramps make it un exportable
by Davidhok on 2020/12/17 06:14
Iphone 12 pro max 512gb and imovie gets hungup on the export until all speed ramps are edited back to normal speed. Other wise compared to a desktop editing software such as premiere, or even shotcut, imovie is just ok ..somewhat of a disappointment. Editing music imo should act like editing a video clip so I have ultimate control. It tries to control how music is edited in as if I don’t or can’t edit in certain parts of a song..maybe make the app controlling music or not, optional. Give me a toggle so I can edit music clips just how I want too. Your way ends the music seconds before the end of the clip making an awkward pause that I can’t control. Fade outs only on beginning and end of the entire video? Not great. It’s as if by default for someone who has never edited a video before and tries to hold your hand too much. The titles are all meh. I wish I didn’t have to design something in photoshop to bring in for a title because the title designing tools are non existent. For what it is It’s the best editing tool I have ever used on a phone for video but so crippled in ways Im seriously considering buying an app that can do everything I’ve been complaining here about Imovie not doing! Thanks.
Very useful, but one major issue
by GreenGoblin0310 on 2020/11/02 14:03
I love iMovie. I have been using it to edit my videos, music videos, and school projects for many years. However, to this day there is still a major issue that has yet to be fixed. When I position the playhead at any point of the clip, whether it’s the midpoint or the end of the clip (with the intent to, say, adjust the length of the clip or split the clip), the playhead always jumps back to the beginning of the clip. This is especially problematic with longer clips, as the clips can’t be adjusted from the end with this bug. On a more positive note, the latest update is absolutely fantastic! For so long the available text and title options were unprofessional-looking (and there weren’t very many to choose from) but now, you can change the text font, you can change color of the text, and you can even freely position and resize the text by simply dragging and pinching! It’s great, and I hope the aforementioned bug gets fixed soon.
Great but I have a big problem
by Werty536743 on 2020/04/21 00:59
I’m a youtuber my channel is NINJAZOMBIESLAYER I’ve been using this sense the start of my channel and my problems with it is that when I transport a video to my photos and then try to delete it from the imovies it takes a long time to delete I also am never able to delete some videos which forces me to delete and reinstall the app which I’ve done many times the reason this is a big problem is that if I can’t delete the vid from imovies and have the vid transferred to the photos is then I have a duplicated vid taking up lots of storage if I made a 30 min vid and transported it and can’t delete it from the imovies I then have 1 hour worth of video storage which is 5 to 10 GB which doesn’t only effect me but you the developers of this app because people like my sis who only have 5 GB will never be able to use this app which lowers the amount of downloads of your app and it effects us by taking up our storage which forces us to upgrade storage just for this app.
the app is starting to crash ..
by aly_loca on 2019/04/17 04:21
This app is extremely great. It it so great for comedy videos and vlogs and more. This is the one and only app I use because it’s the best..but, it’s been crashing lately all sudden..while I’m working on my video, it’ll turn the screen black and won’t let me see the video at all. also when I’m trying to split the video it wouldn’t show and when I tap on the clip it will take me back to the clip before. However, when I put sound affects into my clips, when it glitches or crashes, it will place the sound affects further back and not where I want it to be. I love this app but it gets me upset because I end up deleting my hard work project that I put effort in because of the crashes and how everything gets all over the place and messes the video up. I also tried saving my project before it gets worse instead of just deleting it but it told me “fail to export”. Please fix these issues because I don’t like dealing with this situation that kind of gets me upset and just wastes my time and so as other people. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Thanks you.
Perfect movie maker for iPad
by MacLoverPro9 on 2020/10/25 16:48
I use this app almost every day in connection with animation apps. As a long time video editor, I am very impressed with the various features of iMovie. I have used this app to shoot and edit videos for every social media website. The best thing of all is iMovie’s linkage to iCloud. I can create, edit and save everything from trailers to feature length documentaries on my iPad using iMovie. It works across all my devices and makes it very easy to edit and create a quick movie for followers, friends and family in both work and social settings. The soundtrack options offer dynamic music to create just the right mood for the projects I work on. Best of all is that the native file rendering allows me to tailor my movies to any media sharing site I am working on. If you haven’t used iMovie on iPad for your video post production, you don’t know what you are missing. This is the best movie app for content creators and editors on every skill set. It is easy, fun and free.
TRAILER MAKER IS SO FRUSTRATING
by gurlwhogives on 2019/10/29 23:57
This app is pretty good and has a decent movie maker, but it has some issues. I’m not getting an crashes but it does need more features. I think this app would be a lot better if it had some more trailer making options. You should have an option to make videos in the trailer maker have sound instead of just music. Also the music and backdrops and effects should be editable. It’s stupid that you can’t edit it. Also more genres would be funnier. It’s really difficult to get the right feel for the movie. And the thing I want the absolute most? I want the videos I film IN THE APP to stop going TO MY CAMERA. I’m a neat freak about my phone storage and I can’t film one thing without my storage getting all filled up with stupid mini shots and it’s SO LAME. It made me really mad especially because I always have to delete them so they don’t hog my storage! If these problems were fixed it would be totally perfect but it’s not which made me so sad because I can’t find any other apps with a decent trailer maker. Also one more thing the teen trailer maker is so hard to work with because of the random images in the backdrop not matching the text. SO ANNOYING! 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
It’s sad, really
by SprinkleMaster001 on 2019/04/07 21:19
First!!!! Let’s start with the pros. First, the quality is decent. It’s nice that you can make trailers and post them on facebook or whatever. When your making a movie you just record stuff from your camera and it turns into little clips when you insert it into iMovie. Cons. When you record a trailer or movie, it doesn’t let you delete stuff from your camera. First time I used it I made a trailer for a horror movie with my brother. I watched it and I was impressed. Since the clips of video were in my camera I deleted all of the little clips and figured that I could still watch my trailer. When I went to watch the the next day, a message appeared saying that there are missing films in my trailer and I can’t watch it. That was because I deleted the clips from my camera! That’s just plain stupid, because if you expect me to actually keep 10 minute videos on my iPhone along with over 20 little clips??? That’s the biggest waste of space ever! And don’t get me started on how much storage the app takes up itself! Unless you want all of your iCloud storage to be depleted in 3.5 seconds, I don’t recommend this app. 😡
Really disappointed.
by batwomayne on 2019/01/16 13:17
Really, for 5$ (at least it was when I bought it years ago) you'd think it'd be WAY less glitchy. No matter what I do, the same glitches seem to occur for me over the past years. I've been through three different phones, and it's a bummer because I can't find an app that is quite advanced as this one (is supposed to be). The worst thing about all of the glitches if I have to pick just one- is the audio problems. If I made a background clip MUTE, it should stay mute. Sometimes I will save a video to my phone and the entire audio will suddenly be in the background even though it wasn't there when I previewed it. Sometimes I get screechy noises on moments where I made a clip break. No matter what I do I can't seem to fix this or get it to save to my phone differently. It's really agitating seeing as how it's been years. Sigh. Please. This app has so much potential. (Edit) And now I’ll probably stop using it completely because suddenly I can’t use ANY music? What the *** is this?? I paid for this app and can’t use any music because it’s “protected”. I’m making this video for my own personal use. I should be able to use the music on my phone. This broke my heart. Thanks iMovie
How can a company take pride in something so awful
by skjsnendnx on 2020/05/14 05:28
This app used to be good but for some reason I can’t even make simple videos for school projects without having to struggle immensely for no reason. I read some of the other reviews and I’m glad I saw some regarding the issue with placement. You can’t place things on your own. For sample I tried to drag a audio clip to start at a certain point in the video. Every time I would try to place the audio bar in a certain place the app would automatically move it a couple centimeters ahead or behind. This makes it so frustrating to get good timing in my videos because of this stupid i don’t even know what it is. You guys make countless of updates but your staff seems to have inherited Stevie wonders vision because it actually seems like the bugs and glitches are getting worse. Of course I’m not expecting professional level editing for a free application, but if an app that apple proudly presents for their customers to use can barely place an audio bit correctly, than you guys need to start getting laser eye surgery and making some REAL changes and updates. Oh I’m sure you fixed the bugs just like your updates say. You don’t.
Needs HUGE debugging
by jackkiinnnweechan on 2020/05/11 10:57
I am an amateur gaming editor and I have been using this to improve my skills. I have also created memes out of it and it is an absolute blast using this app. I always love using it to create something entertaining. However, there are a lot of bugs that need fixing. One for example, is videos that I recently added have a tendency to not show up when I go to edit them. I spent an hour trying to port a clip from my camera roll to iMovie, cycling through different methods and jumping through tons of hoops just to be able to create a quick montage for a client. A gaming edit that shouldn’t have taken more than an hour or so took three hours because when I went to grab more clips from my camera roll, the same thing happened. This really needs to be fixed. This problem alone is enough to steer me towards uninstalling and using another editor. Other than that bug, it is an amazing app. It is extremely user friendly and easy to learn and I think everyone should play with it to make something nice. Please address this issue! 🙏🏻
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

I have been using iMovie for quite a while. But sadly it says you need IOS 13.0. Which I don’t have. So I would very much like for iMovie to change that. iMovie is very good with editing though. For vlogs, movies, trailers. All is good from that point of view. With the text it’s hard to keep it in one spot without going through the whole section your doing. Just realize that some apps have their imperfections but iMovie is a great app. Me and my close friends just finished making a movie and a movie trailer. I hope you like iMovie too. I sure do! I’m just hoping they let people with a lower IOS use iMovie again. I really loved iMovie till it wouldn’t let me use it anymore. Overall iMovie is great it just has a few little glitches and stuff like that. Which all apps do. So if your going to complain about iMovie than you have over a million other apps to complain about to. This app is one of the least apps you would complain about. I love iMovie! If your looking at reviews to get a recommendation you really should try iMovie. If you have a high enough IOS😂😂 But definitely and I mean definitely try out iMovie! It’s really fun just a warning!!
a few things you really need to fix (READ)
by Sk8tr05 on 2018/02/10 17:32
it used to be really good, but lately it's been having trouble. i have an iphone 7 so i know it's not my phone. here's a few things you could fix: 1. let us crop it instead of having it always stay horizontal. i have vertical videos i put on there and it puts borders on the side and zooms straight in to the middle. if that's what you call a great editing app, i've seen better. i like lots of the features on imovie, but it's hard to use. 2. sometimes when i'm editing it just stops and doesn't let me change anything and moves the clips around where i dont want them. so i press done then edit it again and the video just goes black and i can't even play it. that's my main issue because i always have to keep starting over and it doesn't even let me save the video after it breaks. 3. maybe have the quality a little better? i press the highest quality when i'm done and it comes out much worse than before i even put it in imovie. please give thought to actually fixing it, because this app does have very good features, but it makes editing confusing and way harder than it needs to be.
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.
Unreliable!
by jonyq107 on 2020/06/16 17:54
This is the most unreliable glitchy useless video editing app I’ve ever used! I just spent hours on a project and it the then this stupid app overlaps the audio and delays it a few seconds just enough so that it screws everything up. Not to mention it’s behind on so many features that plenty of other apps already have it’s absurd. It does this almost every single time I try editing a video. It’s ridiculous. Please fix this app for the love of God and all things good. Edit: I just spent an hour fixing all of the audio to my video and right after I got done fixing it, the audio glitches again and messed everything up.. I’m done with this app. It is so unreliable and seems to waste as much of my time as possible. I could've finished my online course on my computer with all the time I spent on iMovie but instead, it wasted that time and I didn’t get anything out of it since it glitched. You would think that a company as big as apple would at the very least have a RELIABLE app, but instead we have this stupid glitchy app with little to no useful features that would actually matter while editing videos. DO NOT USE THIS APP!
Great app! but some issues..
by Rainbowdashesbiggestfan on 2019/04/07 12:15
I am a nice person who likes making weird movies 😂 I’m not a pro with this app, I am really funny with my movies though but sometimes, it’s GLITCHY and why when I make a movie it just shows the starting part of the movie in the theater maybe this is just because I’m a newbie or because it just does that. I want to not see the starting part of the movie in the theater, I want it to be the words like the trailers with a theme but I don’t know how to do that. Also when I want to add a song from the music app it’s DRM protected,Even when I’m not going to publish the movie I’m making! Just showing it to my friends for a laugh 😆 and I make cartoony character animations in my movies and I want some silly music to go with it,But I cant get it and the theme music doesn’t really go with it. So basically, I just don’t like the music problem and the glitches but besides that, This app is amazing!! 🤩 have a nice day or night or what ever time your reading this 😂
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!
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.
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 .
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.
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.
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?
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.
Good editing app!!
by GirlGam3r73 on 2020/03/17 00:07
This app is good for editing and I highly recommend it if you enjoy making videos There’s just some things I wish it had, and it could improve it dramatically. The option to freeze music: I enjoy making music sync videos, but it’s hard to when I can’t freeze the music, so I might do something that could cause me to have to re-edit the entire thing, which can be a pain. Be able to move text around: If this was added I wouldn’t have a use for CuteCut because that’s all I use CC for, is to have moveable text. Custom zooming: With this, you could slowly zoom in and out in the video depending on how long the zoom duration lasts. And to go along with that, being able to cut smaller sections of video (and to have to option to turn off auto snapping in the video, what I mean by that is when you’re in the middle of a transition, like actually IN BETWEEN 2 clips, it moves over to which ever one the play head is closest to, that’s what I mean) because it gets annoying to have to cut areas of a video, than extend it back again because I can’t cut a certain section, or the playhead just automatically moves over There’s some problems I’ve encountered 1: When I’m done editing a video, there will be an audio delay where there wasn’t before in the raw video 2. Sometimes, the entire thing will refuse the keep playing, OR let me edit. The app will crash when I try to on said videos.
Great place to start, but terrible to continue.
by Ze Operator on 2020/06/26 01:00
I’ll get straight to the point - the app does its job in acting as a post-production workstation, even on its mobile version. You can certainly make a nice film out of it if you try hard enough. Unfortunately, there is a severe lack of tools and a heavy amount of restriction that actually make it worth coming back to. Things like limiting the aspect ratio on photo (with the default setting to apply ken burns when usually it’s a filler method to make photos look good. There’s absolutely no need to add ken burns to EVERY photograph), limiting the amount of audio files attached to each slide to 4 per shot, limited amount of transitions, filters, and just a heavy restriction overall in terms of what movie we want to make over conventional work. Naturally, everyone has to start somewhere. But simply letting a workstation limit the amount that you can do for a movie is almost like mitigating wanting to make a good home movie at all. Feel free to use this. But if you’re a seasoned post-production editor, please consider the following before you use this.
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. :)
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!

today I was editing a gotcha edit for a music video and in the middle of me making it it had a new update for every pic is small on the timeline and it takes me 100 tries to get it to the right links to match the music I tried reloading I tried deleting and re-downloading the app 1 million times I just want the old iMovie back I won hundred percent do not recommend this anymore, A couple minutes ago it was my favorite app to use now it is my least favorite please fix this, also I need a movie that took me forever to do and then I watched it and loved it! A couple days later I figured iMovie doesn't need my photos anymore so I deleted all the photos that it took a little bit later I wanted to show my friend when she was over, but a message popped up saying that I couldn't watch it because of the pictures missing that's the stupidest thing ever! I movie please get your stuff together!!! Sidenote, I love that you guys are always advancing your stuff with new updates, but it can get annoying. When I finally catch up and figure out how to work one update a new one comes in! Talk about inconvenience!!

Saves videos and photos to photos
by BrayPax on 2021/03/04 01:30
When I need more room I have to delete the videos/photos and it runes the Movie. 😔
Absolutely amazing to use! The green screen though.
by J4CKI3 CH4N on 2021/03/04 01:08
The fact that the app is already in the phone amazes me because of the satisfaction not going through a hassle trying to get an editing app. Everything works the way it’s designed to and I always use heavy green screen effect and I realized I’m not allowed to move the green screen effect in different areas only in the middle. I believe there should be a way to move the green screen effect but other than that I love this amazing app!
Awesome!!!!!
by MWH17 on 2021/03/03 21:47
This is the best!!!!!!!
What happened to the text feature
by ppooooopppk90 on 2021/03/03 20:00
What happened?
Great but one issue
by lolfhfhdhfuhfudf on 2021/03/03 19:45
Love it, but it takes forever to download and that was iffy for more but long shot I LOVE IT
Impossible to share
by bskamansk on 2021/03/03 16:20
Sure it’s a fun app and all, but I cant even send it anywhere. Not through messages, email, or anything else. Or maybe it’s just not suitable for phone I guess. I just can’t seem to be able to put it anywhere except my files.
Impossible with phone
by ARGHHGGGGH on 2021/03/03 16:19
It won’t allow me to download or share, and it’s so useless. I do not suggest this app at all there are so much better editing softwares.
YouTube
by TopzzFN on 2021/03/03 16:14
I can’t no longer send it to YouTube its like it just disappeared.
Help with Vertical Videos
by TheWaterWolves on 2021/03/03 13:31
Can you make it to where we can edit full vertical videos instead of them being a box!
It needs to be accessible with voiceover
by Hennessy Garcia on 2021/03/02 23:57
This is not that accessible with voiceover. I’m completely blind and I need it to be more accessible please.
Amazing
by av an b on 2021/03/02 22:35
One thing I wish you could draw on to the video
Awesome!
by Keiko Quin on 2021/03/02 21:29
I think this app is amazing for editing YouTube videos! You guys really did a great job!
FIVE. FREAKING. STARS.
by Anyone Just Guess on 2021/03/02 19:28
I don’t understand how I haven’t found this sooner. I can’t believe how easy this is... and I can’t believe it’s free! I need to make a video project and this app allows me to combine my clips into one video. GET. THIS. NOW.
Why
by sqash27 on 2021/03/02 18:13
Why did you get rid of the speed controls for the background music? I wanted to speed it up to make it sound funny but I couldn’t ☹️
Basic functionality missing
by Pixel Sage on 2021/03/02 06:48
Who decided to eliminate aspect ratio control? Instant 1-star eating.
So goood
by Awesom kid on 2021/03/02 02:00
This thing is amazing
Good but has some issues
by JonahGames on 2021/03/02 00:25
This seems like a good thing to use for YouTube, but there is one issue, it takes forever for movies to download from iCloud and sometimes it doesn’t even budge, can you fix this?
Ok
by Soy sauce face on 2021/03/01 21:33
It is an ok app but is a little cringe and has really funny music too.FYI I only got this app to make people cringe and 😆.
Download from ICloud🚫
by BAM829 on 2021/03/01 02:43
Stop dis😡👿! STOP DOWNLOADING FROM ICLOUD IT’S ANNOYING. AND I HATE IT!!! It doesn’t do this to JUST the MOVIE TRAILERS! They do this to the MOVIES to!! When you don’t see the video for long. YOU COME BACK AND SEE. DOWNLOADING from ICloud 🥺ooh! That’s cute but STOP YOU STUPID IMOVIE and ICLOUD!
It’s amazing I think!!!!
by talky miss talk on 2021/03/01 02:29
It’s so fun! You can do so many things you can also do green screen! I love this stuff!
iMovie Rating
by Zenanathaniel on 2021/03/01 01:55
iMovie on mobile devices I would say it’s a 4/5. iMovie on MacBook is so amazing. But because i don’t have a mac I can’t say that is this something that i like you use a lot for my videos. I like Inshot and the reason I have iMovie so because of the green screen. Once I get a Macbook I would say it’s a 5/5. Until then I will only use it for green screen!
Amazing app
by Cat Gnat on 2021/02/28 23:43
I absolutely LOVE this app so much. But the only thing is please add fart and laugh effect on sound effects
perfect for making fanpage audios! 💗💗
by aaaappooo on 2021/02/28 22:30
i love this app bc you make make fanpage audios if you don't have any BUT the is ONE PROBLEM when i go to lower the volume of a audio it only goes down to 70 and then 50 so if you can change that it would be amazing!!!! anyhow everything else is amazing keep up the amazing work bebs! Sincerely, charlseurs
I love this app so much
by nacyspizzamojo+1995 on 2021/02/28 22:30
Guys this app is amazing although I wish you can change the size if you’re doing green screen/blue screen because then it would be better but this app is so amazing since that you can do videos for audio only it’s only been a break through for my channel thank you so much guys for creating this app it’s such a lovely app it’s Really awesome also my channel I couldn’t edit videos without iMovie
Almost literally perfect
by 👍👍👍🤟🏻ant on 2021/02/28 16:12
So iMovie is almost perfect in every way. Except.... I wish there was VFX on IPhone! That’s my only problem which I’m sure others have this problem. Otherwise it’s great! There is green screen and filters and all that fun stuff.
App crash with the titles! Not gonna mess with it!
by hero's crater on 2021/02/28 15:50
Okay, I was trying a text, nothing weird but, then a weird thing happens! A classic, traditional, annoying app crash! I try another text, the same thing happens again! Now with NO choice but to make a video saying “One week later’’, without the words, so out of place! Please fix this! I still love the app but still!
Great, but I wish the app had a better text feature
by Chloe Andersen on 2021/02/28 15:10
So, I edit all of my videos on iMovie! Great for cutting, clipping, muting, and speeding things up. Well, great for just all around video editing! Well, except the text feature. They are really meant for titles, and don’t really fit what I need. If only they could set it so that you could have multiple on screen at once, set the duration rather than randomly staring and going away, not fade away and in in cool ways(great for titles but not what I want) and multiple different fonts. Other than that 💯! Great app!

Why remove the option to upload to YouTube. It was literally the only reason to use this dumb app
Horrible
by The k man from tcu on 2021/02/28 07:05
This is by far the worst video editing software
I can’t use this
by audB.23 on 2021/02/28 03:18
It’s so confusing to me cause I’m new to it and it the middle of night so I’m not checking it out now I’m wait till morning then I’ll check
I LOVE this
by ajesen on 2021/02/28 00:40

Terrible
by grama poop on 2021/02/28 00:07
Now I am a YouTube or JW domino but I just wanted to try and post a Minecraft video but then I made it around 30 minutes but then when I actually create the movie like it doesn’t even have sound because apparently it’s too big because I never knew that iMovie had so many like limits like like I thought there was gonna be found no matter how long it is but like apparently not it’s a terrible app don’t buy it
Imovie
by hsihhdjdhdhx on 2021/02/27 23:16
The imovie is the best app i ever used to make movies i highly recommend to use this app if you want to edit video because you can make movies and trailer and it is fully free. You can edit any video if the video is 4k or 1080p it can edit it and it is offline. I love this app i highly recommend
Hi

InShot is so much better than this app so...GET INSHOT! !
THIS IS MY LIFE!!!
by Baby bunny queen on 2021/02/27 16:57
I LOVEEEE this app soooo much! I have used it since I was 8 and I have gotten better and BETTER at it! I make movies on it, I play around on it, and best of all there is no VIP $20 a month no everything is free! I hate apps whenever they are like hey for only 30 dollars a month you can have plus or VIP but this app treats everyone the same!!! I HIGHLY recommend this app but I was also thinking of maybe add a few different trailers and maybe add a few things that you can do with the trailers. Thanks iMovie for being part of my life!
Best editing app EVER!!!
by Lyla Rosewater on 2021/02/27 13:42
This is the best editing app I’ve ever used. I have a channel and this is the app I use... it’s amazing!!! I haven’t found everything that you can do but my friend helps me. She has iMovie too. Everyone that I know who has a YouTube channel uses iMovie! I highly recommend it! Great work! This is the best app ever! I love how it don’t have a watermark or anything else like that. I love it. And again, I highly recommend this!!! Love, Lyla
Very great
by ZMB510 on 2021/02/27 13:36
This app helps me edit these videos I could not edit and now I can I used filters but then I realized green screens are better and I screenshot photos that look real then edit then press photos then press all then press the screen shot photo then press the 3 dots then press green/blue screen then time it and it’s out perfect
Amazing best editing app ever but...
by 😁Eve on 2021/02/27 13:20
I wish the music that u provide on soundtracks would last longer but otherwise it is the best editing app EVER
Really fun but one problem...
by Eregit on 2021/02/27 13:12
I love making the movies and the trailers but when I delete the videos and photos it does not have them any more so I’m upset 😭 so... do not delete your videos and photos
I don’t know how to
by tyler blu wells on 2021/02/27 03:26
Dear iMovie can you tell me how to make a thumbnail and I have looked at the settings multiple times please and thank you.
Don’t work
by 178394646. on 2021/02/27 03:23
This is the worst editing system. It always close by itself and it won’t export movies
Great
by Tina Carol84 on 2021/02/26 23:55
Great app but I too run into issues with the app saying I don’t have enough memory to save my final product, even though I’ve got 60GB free. Some days it works great, others it refuses to work at all. I love this app, and I’d love it even more if it actually worked each time. Please fix! 🙏
Great app!
by IntenseAppStoreGamer on 2021/02/26 23:55
So I have been a long time iMovie user, and I have used it for a lot of my editing (I’ve also used it on Mac) and recently (I don’t know if this is the beta I have or if it’s an iMovie bug but) I haven’t been able to do anything. Once I open the app, it would kick me out after less than a minute. I am on a iPad 6 (2018 March). But otherwise, FANTASTIC APP! Good job Apple!
Amazing!
by Rollersk90 on 2021/02/26 22:11
This is great! I recommend!
Everything you need in a video editor
by suckmynuts2369 on 2021/02/26 21:56
So I used this app and it’s so good it has good transitions and it has extract audio just go to the plus sign and click video and click any audio and click the 3 dots and u see audio only u click that and there’s it so it’s very good I love it and it’s easy for beginners I recommend this app

I would like to comfrim that IMovie is a great app but fix some things like glitching and stuff and probably add some stickers and more transitions!
Very Good!
by Moonlight Dreams TM on 2021/02/25 20:06
I love editing with iMovie it’s pretty easy to edit m videos professionally but I wish you could make more than one song a background song because in a longer Vlog I use more than one song in the background and it gets kinda frustrating only be able to you one song in the foreground. That’s all!
I HATE THIS APP UGH
by jdjxisncuxhx on 2021/02/25 19:25
ITS HaRD AnD IMhAtE IT
It’s a great app until it isn’t.
by Truebpiblu on 2021/02/25 16:38
I’ve used this app on my phone on and off for a few videos. Unfortunately I just finished editing a 20 minute video that I spent a couple of hours putting together. The unfortunate part is that the app will not let me export it. It claims that there is not enough space on my device. However I have plenty of local space on the device itself. I say local because I’m not confusing my available local storage with cloud storage as some would believe. The only fix on the internet is “delete the app and re-download.” That’s a great solution except this means that I will have to restart the project from scratch. Other projects export without issue. This one project does not. In summation, the app is strong for an iOS based video editing app. Not as powerful as the Mac OS version but that’s to be expected. The troubleshooting capabilities are also incredibly limited as a result of it being an iOS app as well. Use at your own risk.
This app is horrible!
by Arkiox on 2021/02/25 16:31
When I first got the app, I thought that it was pretty cool. But when I started to edit more, I noticed that it always kept glitching and glitching, moving my recordings and my footage around for no reason, not letting me do certain things and having me restart the app every five seconds, and there are only like five types of texts that you can choose from, and each one has an annoying effect that I don’t want. And whenever I want to do the feature “picture in picture”, there is always a fade effect in the beginning and the end. This app is straight up annoying and glitches all the time. DO NOT GET THIS APP!!!
Needs more sound effects and music
by kazumi Aiko on 2021/02/25 04:35
The app is pretty good but I feel as though it needs more sounds. It has very few to choose from and it’s hard to find music that isn’t copyrighted as well so if iMovie had it, it would be the best video editor ever
BEST game EVER!🍭🍩🍡
by KWloveskitties299 on 2021/02/25 01:05
I love this app! I always play this app with my friends we think it’s so much fun but can you add more cool trailer things but don’t worry I still love it I’m assessed with it because it’s like I’m actually on a real movie! The trailer I want is rainbow cool stuff with mermaids
Epic app!!!
by Kistni on 2021/02/24 23:26
Ok so i really like imovie i make cool videos and its cool lol ٩(๑❛ᴗ❛๑)۶ e the end

Can’t save files
by sven543 on 2021/02/24 17:18
Just a heads up...you can’t save your project if you want to start another. Ended up losing a project because of it. Not sure which mentally incapable person on apple thought that would be a good feature but it’s almost comical how annoying that is and that someone thought it would be a good idea

by Erica Rodriguez ibarra on 2021/02/24 04:20
You all need to bring back the option to share directly to YouTube !!!!!!!!! It’s so un convenient to have to download to the library and then share to YouTube !
Good app!👌🏻😊
by gygggtftfffytgijijuyg on 2021/02/24 02:06
OK so first off I love this app it is so cool. But, this review isn’t about the app at all. It is about that you probably don’t even read these. I mean, you should look at these and maybe you’ll see an idea that you really like. Also, if you do read these, then maybe you can send back a reply saying something nice like some other apps do. People write these reviews for a reason. It’s so that they can put in suggestions and tell you about how bad the app might be and glitches. But I to have a suggestion. You should make something where you can search up songs by artists such as Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello, Taylor Swift, Dove Cameron, and so on. Now, I get that it would kind of be copywriting but if someone does add a song and they want to post it on YouTube then you can say that you can’t post it on YouTube because it has a copyright song in it. I know this may be long but I hope you taking my suggestions and if you do just send me back a little note so that I know that you’ve read it. Thanks.👍🏻😊🤗

by John8989 on 2021/02/23 21:27
I hate that there’s only one way to make vids on this app and it’s in landscape view. Nothing else.
Mostly Perfect
by Happy Podcast Maker/Listener on 2021/02/23 21:13
This app is wonderful. You can make trailers, movies, and everything in-between! However, I do wish there was an option to add scrolling credits, because I enjoy making mini movies, so, yeah. The trailers are fun but need sound, like a REAL Hollywood trailer. Other than that, this app is amazing!

Lacking... everything
by NJfromMA on 2021/02/23 00:00
Barebones is an understatement with this app. Runs great, is super convenient, but it feels like you have no creative freedom at all. You can't even change the aspect ratio???

What use is a movie app that I can’t even put the music I paid for into my movies? It even says in the description that you can use your iTunes music but yet nothing. What a waste of time. Used to be an excellent app, guess you get what you pay for.
One problem
by sillymclillymcizzypants on 2021/02/21 20:35

Great for making weird music videos 4.5/5 stars

So. It’s very rare that I leave a review on apps, but this one deserves it. I have been having an absolute blast with this, especially since I’ve really gotten into drone photography and it’s the perfect tool to make for video editing. My favorite feature honestly is making the movie trailers, it’s so fun with a compilation of media. The ONLY issue I have with it is that I’d love more freedom. Once you pick the general theme it predetermines what you can do. It boxes you into a certain amount of clips per section and has a variety of different kinds that you cant control whatsoever. So for example. One section in the trailer would have 3 slots for clips. The first one would be a .9 second, the next one would be a 3 second closeup (which is very annoying since it zooms way in on the picture or video and there’s nothing you can do to adjust it or stop it.) so if it’s a video it could focus in and cut out what you actually want to show in the clip which makes it impossible to use a lot of media. The third one could be 1.5 seconds. The fact that you can’t change the number of possible clips in a section and that you can’t change the duration of any of the clips is very frustrating. But beyond that this is an AMAZING app that I will love using for a long time, definitely worth having to be more strategic on what media I place where.
Great, But Here is a Suggestion
by QwQ GamerGirl on 2020/06/28 15:29
Yes, iMovie is a great movie and trailer or film maker, you can make retro trailers/films/movies, romance, teens, family, fairy tale, swashbuckler, expedition, superhero, scary, coming of age, indie, Bollywood, adrenaline, and narrative movies films or trailers. I know, a lot of options 😅. But... There should be an option where you can change the music and where you can have the images and videos you took on iMovie only be stored in the movies on your app, not the gallery. It is a huge waste of space for your device, especially if you make lots of movies/trailers like me. I wish you could make the trailers longer than a minute, and can make it 1-4 minutes at least for trailers. When making a trailer, you can’t hear any talking or sounds just music. Maybe still keep the music, because that is still cool, but make there a setting where you can turn off music and can hear talking and sounds. Still a very great app I recommend, but I am just hoping for an update that will change that and further experience in the update. I hope this is good enough to explain the change I’d be grateful for and to explain to others who might download this app. Please make this change though, if not, it’s fine but thx anyways ☺️
LOVE IT

This....is......the......best......editing......software.....I’ve....ever....use. Other editing apps make everything over complicated by making it look all “professional” or “easy”. Some apps make it so you can’t find anything and you have to enter all these strange unhelpful commands while others all you can do is plop the video in, put in a filter, and maybe add some random sounds. But this app is so good! You can do so much with it, it’s super easy, AND if you are willing to spice things up you can put it into pro mode where you can do even more! It’s even better because IT HAS A FRICKING UNDO BUTTON! It’s so helpful if you made a big mistake and you don’t want to have to do it all over again! It also has so many transitions that are so fun to play with along with the funny and awesome sound effects (my favorite it the time travel one) the only thing I have to complained about is that the default transition is fade and so I have to go through my entire video and put it to the standard one witch really annoys me I would also like a *BLEEP* sound effect because it’s so good for humor and if someone says...something... but other than that it’s so good and I don’t understand why it’s only rated 3.9 stars WHEN IT CLEARLY DESERVES A 4.5! soooo yea that’s all I have to say!
I’ve only seen 1080P results on an iPhone 8

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.
I am OBSESSED!
by ZGDfounder12 on 2020/10/03 00:08
I have been using this app since I was 6 years old and I FREAKIN LOVE IT!!! I especially love the new green/blue screen affect. I have made dozens and dozens of videos using this app. The only think that I would change is the trailer making part. I would like to add videos and clips into it that have sound and optionally hear the sound. I also would like to be able to add audio in the background. (Like in movie trailers when you hear the characters talking in the background) I also think that the green screen could be easier to use. It doesn’t work very well at all unless you have an actual green or blue screen which pretty much none of us are going to have. I also think that you should bring back the theatre. It saved me so much space because I could actually delete the videos and pics from my photos but the movie is still saved. And you might think that with these complaints I would do 4 or 3 stars but these are minor issues, there is nothing big, and I just love everything else so much I have to do 5 star. There are always going to be things that aren’t perfect but there are only a short couple with this app and I recommend it to all. DOWNLOAD NOW!!

by ewdcfz v on 2021/01/15 17:08
Ok so this is not an app I downloaded T-Mobile did it for me on my iPhone 12 which i got yesterday yay! Btw I’m a kid so it’s like a big thing for me before I had the iPhone XR , anyway this app I have seen people make agsm’s ( American girl stop motion) but I’m not exactly sure on how to use the app I thought it would be where I make a scene press pause add some effects blah blah blah etc but I don’t see any features near that and I would certainly like to use this app but if I would download this on my own time I would kinda maybe rue the fact that I did by this I don’t mean any offense to anybody by this review but I think it’s pretty similar to the. “ clips” app but I like clips better T-Mobile also happened to download it for me and it’s cool and easier to use I guess so maybe I’m just new and I don’t understand but if I do understand it later on I will make a new review. Wow! This is long I’m going to go now and review the other apps T-Mobile downloaded for me because I like to review apps. Hope this helps!:-). Update I’m going to try and use this for a gatcha life vid I will get back when it’s done with info
Update: uploaded 4K at 60fps... at last.
by SnazzDab on 2020/11/27 16:54
I have an iPad 6th generation, and the description of this app says I should be able to export at 60 FPS for 4K video. I’ve had immense difficulty uploading 4K video at 60 FPS previously, but it just worked for me. The video was extremely short, being less than three (3) minutes in length, but it did finally work. Last week (Nov 20, 2020), I couldn’t even upload at 30 FPS if I tried to export the project as a 4K video, which was extremely irritating. That was on the shorter end of a normal-length video for me, being only 6 minutes and 40 seconds. Usually my videos are at least 7-8 minutes, as I try to aim for 10 minute videos. I would like to aim for longer videos, as my 25 minute video really took off for how small my channel is, but I’m not sure if I would be able to export that in 4K, and even if I could, I’m not sure if it would have to be 30 FPS, or if I could export it in 60 FPS. For reference, i film exclusively in 4K 60 FPS, so all of my videos are high quality. That’s why I find it immensely irritating to have this limitation in the editing software when the description of the app says I can export in 4K 60 FPS and I have the 6th generation iPad, so I should be able to, yet it’s given me so much trouble when I try to. Hence the 2-star review. At least it’s gained one star.
Not as great as I remember
by juststankylegandmoveon on 2020/05/20 01:53
When I started using iMovie as an beginner’s tool a couple years back, it was very easy to use and understand. Every video I made came out exactly as I edited it, and I could do it for hours on end with no issues. Now, I have moved on to other softwares as I’ve improved, but I came back to this one to use as a base for my more simple clips and audios; plus I already knew how to use it and expected it to be just as easy as I remembered. But, coming back, I notice how it keeps crashing, whether it is a sudden black screen that forces me back to my home screen a second later, or even glitches within the app. For instance, I tried changing the volume of an audio by selecting it—and it split it where I had selected it?? It may sound like a small bug, but it gets very frustrating when it happens over and over again and I have to undo it. It was never like that before. Same issue with clips, sometimes it won’t even let me select one I want to crop or slow down, etc. It forces me to leave the project, the app itself, sometimes even to the point of turning my phone off just to get it running again—just to get it to crash again. I really hope you guys find this and fix even the small issues, iMovie was so brilliant before.
Glitches from iOS 12.3.1 update
by RannyPanny on 2019/07/10 23:19
Please, Please, Please Fix! I only use iMovie and usually love it...however, Since the latest update for my iPad that includes green screen there are a variety of issues making the app difficult to use....I feel very inconvenienced after having to start again and edit an hour long movie three times! Lagging start and editing, Greyed out clips and a black preview screen, glitches....overlays blacked out, some clips fine some blacked out, also after adding new clips to the edit when I press to play the movie it says it’s “downloading from iCloud” but it never does. I have iCloud Photo Library option on “Keep Originals”, and the iCloud option for iMovie off, yet it still tries to download from it. I even signed out of my device and but it gives the same message. If all the clips used in the project are in full resolution on my iPad, I signed out of iCloud AND I had the setting on “keep originals” why is it still trying to download from this cloud?. The other perfectly fine clips also glitch and sometimes say the same message. All the clips ultimately alternate from being fine to acting out and being blacked out and glitching. Movie taking forever to load or freezing..have tried troubleshooting by restarting the movie from scratch...Same thing happening since update.
OH MY WORD I LOVE THIS APP!!! 😍😍
by Edog🐶🐶 on 2020/11/28 02:01
Hi everybody! I love the app IMovie. It all started on one Saturday night when my friend was over. I was making a commercial for my fake toy store just for kicks and then my friend asked, “Are you using IMovie?” I had no clue what IMovie was. She said it was an app that you can make trailers and movies on it. The very next day I decided to try out IMovie, sense it was already on my IPad ( for some reason it came on my IPad.) I didn’t know how to work the app, so I just kind of left IMovie alone for awhile. A few days later, I was randomly at my friend’s house. We made a movie trailer on IMovie, but we did’t get to make the movie. That afternoon when I got home, I decided to give IMovie another try because I now understood how to work it after watching my friend use it. From then on, I kept on making trailers. I never do the movies, but I make SO many trailers. I make them with my friends, and my family. It’s so fun to make them and then show them to your family. Overall, I totally recommend this app for making trailers. Thank you for reading, and I hope you try IMovie. God bless you, and stay safe.😊
AMAZING APP!! DOWNLOAD NOW!
by Triple8Gaming on 2020/12/14 22:29
Ok, so I don’t leave reviews for apps barely, but I’m going to because this is like one of my most favorite apps. So I am a small YouTuber (Triple8Gaming plz sub) and I’ve used iMovie since summer of 2020, (I mostly do videos on ROBLOX btw) and I’ve LOVED IT. My videos have been getting lost of views because of it. And the newest update to text and stuff is something I’ve wanted since I got it!!! And the background is something I’ve really wanted as well. iMovie is really awesome as well cuz u don’t have to pay money and it’s quick and ez but GREAT! You can trim on it, there’s plenty of music, but I recommend maybe some more popular music, but anyways, I totally think you should get it, because seriously, this is my favorite and best editor I got. Sure, it doesn’t do everything, but it’s still really great! But one thing. Something that I recommend for the next update is coloring, stickers, maybe some sort of cool effects you can put on, and stuff like that. But anyways, that’s it, thank you for reading this, and I hope you have a great day! ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Ughhh
by Balletgurl22 on 2020/12/07 00:05
Ok, first things first. You said that when we updated it several previous problems would be fixed. They were not. I looked at the list and none of the issues were fixed. I was excited when I got to update iMovie with all of the new things but my expectations were not met. It gives you the choice of either keeping the text shadow or not. I thought it made the titles look horrible so I took it away. But after two hours, the text shadow always went back on. Next, I am having several other problems. I decided to use iMovie for a school project but it failed me. My dad was going over some things I should edit and I tried to adjust the time of the video so you could read the full thing, but the tool bar with actions, speed, volume, titles, and filters were not working. Three of the choices were grayed out and I was unable to change the accidental mistake. Also, when I got a new iPad, I was also unhappy. I had saved all of the iMovies, but when I got back on the app, all of my previously made movies disappeared. I could not find them anywhere and all of the movies I dedicated my time too, were lost.
Pretty good
by gssfsbsbzvzvzvzhgsgsv hi 0k on 2020/11/23 12:54
I love this app and it is amazing I have always wanted to make movies and become a detector but the trailers make me crazy you can’t make noise from the movie like in real trailers over the music and you can only put certain amounts of clips and you can’t even choose what music and all that is so annoying I hate it like trailers are to show the awesome parts of your movie but because of all that that is impossible to do with this app please make that better now for the other thing this app has completely failed for me I can’t play on it anymore it keeps saying I need to re-download and when I do it says I have to do it again and again and again however if I ever get back into this app again I will play it all the time I love the it is really pretty good I just wish the the trailers were better and less defective I mean it even ruins the clips you can put in by zooming in and cropping and stuff like that I need that fixed please but minus that the app is amazing I just wish it would let me in cause honestly without the annoying trailers it is amazing and I love it
Speedramps make it un exportable
by Davidhok on 2020/12/17 06:14
Iphone 12 pro max 512gb and imovie gets hungup on the export until all speed ramps are edited back to normal speed. Other wise compared to a desktop editing software such as premiere, or even shotcut, imovie is just ok ..somewhat of a disappointment. Editing music imo should act like editing a video clip so I have ultimate control. It tries to control how music is edited in as if I don’t or can’t edit in certain parts of a song..maybe make the app controlling music or not, optional. Give me a toggle so I can edit music clips just how I want too. Your way ends the music seconds before the end of the clip making an awkward pause that I can’t control. Fade outs only on beginning and end of the entire video? Not great. It’s as if by default for someone who has never edited a video before and tries to hold your hand too much. The titles are all meh. I wish I didn’t have to design something in photoshop to bring in for a title because the title designing tools are non existent. For what it is It’s the best editing tool I have ever used on a phone for video but so crippled in ways Im seriously considering buying an app that can do everything I’ve been complaining here about Imovie not doing! Thanks.
Very useful, but one major issue
by GreenGoblin0310 on 2020/11/02 14:03
I love iMovie. I have been using it to edit my videos, music videos, and school projects for many years. However, to this day there is still a major issue that has yet to be fixed. When I position the playhead at any point of the clip, whether it’s the midpoint or the end of the clip (with the intent to, say, adjust the length of the clip or split the clip), the playhead always jumps back to the beginning of the clip. This is especially problematic with longer clips, as the clips can’t be adjusted from the end with this bug. On a more positive note, the latest update is absolutely fantastic! For so long the available text and title options were unprofessional-looking (and there weren’t very many to choose from) but now, you can change the text font, you can change color of the text, and you can even freely position and resize the text by simply dragging and pinching! It’s great, and I hope the aforementioned bug gets fixed soon.
Great but I have a big problem
by Werty536743 on 2020/04/21 00:59
I’m a youtuber my channel is NINJAZOMBIESLAYER I’ve been using this sense the start of my channel and my problems with it is that when I transport a video to my photos and then try to delete it from the imovies it takes a long time to delete I also am never able to delete some videos which forces me to delete and reinstall the app which I’ve done many times the reason this is a big problem is that if I can’t delete the vid from imovies and have the vid transferred to the photos is then I have a duplicated vid taking up lots of storage if I made a 30 min vid and transported it and can’t delete it from the imovies I then have 1 hour worth of video storage which is 5 to 10 GB which doesn’t only effect me but you the developers of this app because people like my sis who only have 5 GB will never be able to use this app which lowers the amount of downloads of your app and it effects us by taking up our storage which forces us to upgrade storage just for this app.
the app is starting to crash ..
by aly_loca on 2019/04/17 04:21
This app is extremely great. It it so great for comedy videos and vlogs and more. This is the one and only app I use because it’s the best..but, it’s been crashing lately all sudden..while I’m working on my video, it’ll turn the screen black and won’t let me see the video at all. also when I’m trying to split the video it wouldn’t show and when I tap on the clip it will take me back to the clip before. However, when I put sound affects into my clips, when it glitches or crashes, it will place the sound affects further back and not where I want it to be. I love this app but it gets me upset because I end up deleting my hard work project that I put effort in because of the crashes and how everything gets all over the place and messes the video up. I also tried saving my project before it gets worse instead of just deleting it but it told me “fail to export”. Please fix these issues because I don’t like dealing with this situation that kind of gets me upset and just wastes my time and so as other people. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Thanks you.
Perfect movie maker for iPad
by MacLoverPro9 on 2020/10/25 16:48
I use this app almost every day in connection with animation apps. As a long time video editor, I am very impressed with the various features of iMovie. I have used this app to shoot and edit videos for every social media website. The best thing of all is iMovie’s linkage to iCloud. I can create, edit and save everything from trailers to feature length documentaries on my iPad using iMovie. It works across all my devices and makes it very easy to edit and create a quick movie for followers, friends and family in both work and social settings. The soundtrack options offer dynamic music to create just the right mood for the projects I work on. Best of all is that the native file rendering allows me to tailor my movies to any media sharing site I am working on. If you haven’t used iMovie on iPad for your video post production, you don’t know what you are missing. This is the best movie app for content creators and editors on every skill set. It is easy, fun and free.
TRAILER MAKER IS SO FRUSTRATING
by gurlwhogives on 2019/10/29 23:57
This app is pretty good and has a decent movie maker, but it has some issues. I’m not getting an crashes but it does need more features. I think this app would be a lot better if it had some more trailer making options. You should have an option to make videos in the trailer maker have sound instead of just music. Also the music and backdrops and effects should be editable. It’s stupid that you can’t edit it. Also more genres would be funnier. It’s really difficult to get the right feel for the movie. And the thing I want the absolute most? I want the videos I film IN THE APP to stop going TO MY CAMERA. I’m a neat freak about my phone storage and I can’t film one thing without my storage getting all filled up with stupid mini shots and it’s SO LAME. It made me really mad especially because I always have to delete them so they don’t hog my storage! If these problems were fixed it would be totally perfect but it’s not which made me so sad because I can’t find any other apps with a decent trailer maker. Also one more thing the teen trailer maker is so hard to work with because of the random images in the backdrop not matching the text. SO ANNOYING! 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
It’s sad, really
by SprinkleMaster001 on 2019/04/07 21:19
First!!!! Let’s start with the pros. First, the quality is decent. It’s nice that you can make trailers and post them on facebook or whatever. When your making a movie you just record stuff from your camera and it turns into little clips when you insert it into iMovie. Cons. When you record a trailer or movie, it doesn’t let you delete stuff from your camera. First time I used it I made a trailer for a horror movie with my brother. I watched it and I was impressed. Since the clips of video were in my camera I deleted all of the little clips and figured that I could still watch my trailer. When I went to watch the the next day, a message appeared saying that there are missing films in my trailer and I can’t watch it. That was because I deleted the clips from my camera! That’s just plain stupid, because if you expect me to actually keep 10 minute videos on my iPhone along with over 20 little clips??? That’s the biggest waste of space ever! And don’t get me started on how much storage the app takes up itself! Unless you want all of your iCloud storage to be depleted in 3.5 seconds, I don’t recommend this app. 😡
Really disappointed.
by batwomayne on 2019/01/16 13:17
Really, for 5$ (at least it was when I bought it years ago) you'd think it'd be WAY less glitchy. No matter what I do, the same glitches seem to occur for me over the past years. I've been through three different phones, and it's a bummer because I can't find an app that is quite advanced as this one (is supposed to be). The worst thing about all of the glitches if I have to pick just one- is the audio problems. If I made a background clip MUTE, it should stay mute. Sometimes I will save a video to my phone and the entire audio will suddenly be in the background even though it wasn't there when I previewed it. Sometimes I get screechy noises on moments where I made a clip break. No matter what I do I can't seem to fix this or get it to save to my phone differently. It's really agitating seeing as how it's been years. Sigh. Please. This app has so much potential. (Edit) And now I’ll probably stop using it completely because suddenly I can’t use ANY music? What the *** is this?? I paid for this app and can’t use any music because it’s “protected”. I’m making this video for my own personal use. I should be able to use the music on my phone. This broke my heart. Thanks iMovie
How can a company take pride in something so awful
by skjsnendnx on 2020/05/14 05:28
This app used to be good but for some reason I can’t even make simple videos for school projects without having to struggle immensely for no reason. I read some of the other reviews and I’m glad I saw some regarding the issue with placement. You can’t place things on your own. For sample I tried to drag a audio clip to start at a certain point in the video. Every time I would try to place the audio bar in a certain place the app would automatically move it a couple centimeters ahead or behind. This makes it so frustrating to get good timing in my videos because of this stupid i don’t even know what it is. You guys make countless of updates but your staff seems to have inherited Stevie wonders vision because it actually seems like the bugs and glitches are getting worse. Of course I’m not expecting professional level editing for a free application, but if an app that apple proudly presents for their customers to use can barely place an audio bit correctly, than you guys need to start getting laser eye surgery and making some REAL changes and updates. Oh I’m sure you fixed the bugs just like your updates say. You don’t.
Needs HUGE debugging
by jackkiinnnweechan on 2020/05/11 10:57
I am an amateur gaming editor and I have been using this to improve my skills. I have also created memes out of it and it is an absolute blast using this app. I always love using it to create something entertaining. However, there are a lot of bugs that need fixing. One for example, is videos that I recently added have a tendency to not show up when I go to edit them. I spent an hour trying to port a clip from my camera roll to iMovie, cycling through different methods and jumping through tons of hoops just to be able to create a quick montage for a client. A gaming edit that shouldn’t have taken more than an hour or so took three hours because when I went to grab more clips from my camera roll, the same thing happened. This really needs to be fixed. This problem alone is enough to steer me towards uninstalling and using another editor. Other than that bug, it is an amazing app. It is extremely user friendly and easy to learn and I think everyone should play with it to make something nice. Please address this issue! 🙏🏻
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
Requires IOS 13.0
by Olivia.Magg on 2020/02/04 23:18
I have been using iMovie for quite a while. But sadly it says you need IOS 13.0. Which I don’t have. So I would very much like for iMovie to change that. iMovie is very good with editing though. For vlogs, movies, trailers. All is good from that point of view. With the text it’s hard to keep it in one spot without going through the whole section your doing. Just realize that some apps have their imperfections but iMovie is a great app. Me and my close friends just finished making a movie and a movie trailer. I hope you like iMovie too. I sure do! I’m just hoping they let people with a lower IOS use iMovie again. I really loved iMovie till it wouldn’t let me use it anymore. Overall iMovie is great it just has a few little glitches and stuff like that. Which all apps do. So if your going to complain about iMovie than you have over a million other apps to complain about to. This app is one of the least apps you would complain about. I love iMovie! If your looking at reviews to get a recommendation you really should try iMovie. If you have a high enough IOS😂😂 But definitely and I mean definitely try out iMovie! It’s really fun just a warning!!
a few things you really need to fix (READ)
by Sk8tr05 on 2018/02/10 17:32
it used to be really good, but lately it's been having trouble. i have an iphone 7 so i know it's not my phone. here's a few things you could fix: 1. let us crop it instead of having it always stay horizontal. i have vertical videos i put on there and it puts borders on the side and zooms straight in to the middle. if that's what you call a great editing app, i've seen better. i like lots of the features on imovie, but it's hard to use. 2. sometimes when i'm editing it just stops and doesn't let me change anything and moves the clips around where i dont want them. so i press done then edit it again and the video just goes black and i can't even play it. that's my main issue because i always have to keep starting over and it doesn't even let me save the video after it breaks. 3. maybe have the quality a little better? i press the highest quality when i'm done and it comes out much worse than before i even put it in imovie. please give thought to actually fixing it, because this app does have very good features, but it makes editing confusing and way harder than it needs to be.
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.
Unreliable!
by jonyq107 on 2020/06/16 17:54
This is the most unreliable glitchy useless video editing app I’ve ever used! I just spent hours on a project and it the then this stupid app overlaps the audio and delays it a few seconds just enough so that it screws everything up. Not to mention it’s behind on so many features that plenty of other apps already have it’s absurd. It does this almost every single time I try editing a video. It’s ridiculous. Please fix this app for the love of God and all things good. Edit: I just spent an hour fixing all of the audio to my video and right after I got done fixing it, the audio glitches again and messed everything up.. I’m done with this app. It is so unreliable and seems to waste as much of my time as possible. I could've finished my online course on my computer with all the time I spent on iMovie but instead, it wasted that time and I didn’t get anything out of it since it glitched. You would think that a company as big as apple would at the very least have a RELIABLE app, but instead we have this stupid glitchy app with little to no useful features that would actually matter while editing videos. DO NOT USE THIS APP!
Great app! but some issues..
by Rainbowdashesbiggestfan on 2019/04/07 12:15
I am a nice person who likes making weird movies 😂 I’m not a pro with this app, I am really funny with my movies though but sometimes, it’s GLITCHY and why when I make a movie it just shows the starting part of the movie in the theater maybe this is just because I’m a newbie or because it just does that. I want to not see the starting part of the movie in the theater, I want it to be the words like the trailers with a theme but I don’t know how to do that. Also when I want to add a song from the music app it’s DRM protected,Even when I’m not going to publish the movie I’m making! Just showing it to my friends for a laugh 😆 and I make cartoony character animations in my movies and I want some silly music to go with it,But I cant get it and the theme music doesn’t really go with it. So basically, I just don’t like the music problem and the glitches but besides that, This app is amazing!! 🤩 have a nice day or night or what ever time your reading this 😂
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!
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.
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 .
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.
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.
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?
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.
Good editing app!!
by GirlGam3r73 on 2020/03/17 00:07
This app is good for editing and I highly recommend it if you enjoy making videos There’s just some things I wish it had, and it could improve it dramatically. The option to freeze music: I enjoy making music sync videos, but it’s hard to when I can’t freeze the music, so I might do something that could cause me to have to re-edit the entire thing, which can be a pain. Be able to move text around: If this was added I wouldn’t have a use for CuteCut because that’s all I use CC for, is to have moveable text. Custom zooming: With this, you could slowly zoom in and out in the video depending on how long the zoom duration lasts. And to go along with that, being able to cut smaller sections of video (and to have to option to turn off auto snapping in the video, what I mean by that is when you’re in the middle of a transition, like actually IN BETWEEN 2 clips, it moves over to which ever one the play head is closest to, that’s what I mean) because it gets annoying to have to cut areas of a video, than extend it back again because I can’t cut a certain section, or the playhead just automatically moves over There’s some problems I’ve encountered 1: When I’m done editing a video, there will be an audio delay where there wasn’t before in the raw video 2. Sometimes, the entire thing will refuse the keep playing, OR let me edit. The app will crash when I try to on said videos.
Great place to start, but terrible to continue.
by Ze Operator on 2020/06/26 01:00
I’ll get straight to the point - the app does its job in acting as a post-production workstation, even on its mobile version. You can certainly make a nice film out of it if you try hard enough. Unfortunately, there is a severe lack of tools and a heavy amount of restriction that actually make it worth coming back to. Things like limiting the aspect ratio on photo (with the default setting to apply ken burns when usually it’s a filler method to make photos look good. There’s absolutely no need to add ken burns to EVERY photograph), limiting the amount of audio files attached to each slide to 4 per shot, limited amount of transitions, filters, and just a heavy restriction overall in terms of what movie we want to make over conventional work. Naturally, everyone has to start somewhere. But simply letting a workstation limit the amount that you can do for a movie is almost like mitigating wanting to make a good home movie at all. Feel free to use this. But if you’re a seasoned post-production editor, please consider the following before you use this.
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. :)
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!

today I was editing a gotcha edit for a music video and in the middle of me making it it had a new update for every pic is small on the timeline and it takes me 100 tries to get it to the right links to match the music I tried reloading I tried deleting and re-downloading the app 1 million times I just want the old iMovie back I won hundred percent do not recommend this anymore, A couple minutes ago it was my favorite app to use now it is my least favorite please fix this, also I need a movie that took me forever to do and then I watched it and loved it! A couple days later I figured iMovie doesn't need my photos anymore so I deleted all the photos that it took a little bit later I wanted to show my friend when she was over, but a message popped up saying that I couldn't watch it because of the pictures missing that's the stupidest thing ever! I movie please get your stuff together!!! Sidenote, I love that you guys are always advancing your stuff with new updates, but it can get annoying. When I finally catch up and figure out how to work one update a new one comes in! Talk about inconvenience!!
