iMovie is a amazing tool for making videos.
They could care less
by Stuntastics on 2022/01/21 04:47
Which is sad. This app hasn’t changed in ten years. It doesn’t even edit vertical video taken from the device its made for.
Thank you

Extremely dumb
by K1dBrand0n on 2022/01/21 00:00
I am a youtuber and I like to talk in my video’s but whenever I use the IPADS INBUILT MICROPHONE TO PICK UP ON MY VOICE, this app just says no AND GETS RID OF THE AUDIO, and it’s not like complete silence, it still has the game audio SO THIS IS STUPID
Still missing something
by jujuhyhjhffdbjhvrf on 2022/01/20 22:16
Awesome movie maker I love all the features! When I got the app I was looking at a video to see how to use it than I went back on iMovie a few days later and tried to find the feature. I couldn’t find it even though it was on the video. I don’t know if there is an upgraded iMovie but didn’t see one on the App Store. After a little of research, I realized that I already had the most upgraded iMovie. This was another problem of mine, after I got the hang of iMovie I tried to go on the app and it said “download again and try again later” which I had know idea what it meant but I thought maybe I was running out of space? So I checked my storage and it totally had enough space. I kept trying over and over again but still nothing. So I don’t know about those two things but I hope you fix it. Again love the features
Slow and unresponsive
by Mirocal on 2022/01/20 06:40
…with just 9 min of 4K XDR videos on an iPhone 13 pro. Else: very limited app, with two major pain points: - terrible HD quality output, with zero settings to adjust resolution and compression; - in the age of phone videography, iMovie still doesn’t support vertical format, albeit in a contrived way with resolution loss. Lameware.
EQ/Noise Reduction
by malcb11 on 2022/01/20 01:14
Great app for quick video editing. I did a voiceover and would like to be able to equalize my volume and reduce the background noise coming from the apple headphone mic
Was good, but the new update ruined it.
by LokiVonDoberman on 2022/01/19 20:30
iMovie previously was a pretty great video editor, but they released an update and the app is constantly lagging making it horrible to edit videos on.
A disappointing shell of the original
by bhirschi on 2022/01/19 20:21
I got my first taste of iMovie when I bought my smoke gray Apple iMac DV Special Edition 21 years ago. Back then, it was revolutionary – incredibly simple and intuitive, yet an extremely powerful video editing tool. It’s not hyperbole to say that the original iMovie brought video editing – which back then required specialized equipment and software costing tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars – to the masses. Given my history with this app, it’s hard to find the words to express how disappointed I am with this version. It’s no longer simple, no longer intuitive, and worst of all, VERY limiting to creativity. Just two examples: • In the original iMovie, when you separated audio & video, THEY WERE ACTUALLY SEPARATED, and the user could edit them separately, going so far as to lay new video clips over existing sound. You can’t do that in this version. If you delete a video clip, even after detaching the sound, the sound is deleted with it. • In the original iMovie, you could render a frame of video as a still, effectively creating a freeze frame, which could be made any length you want to make it. You can’t do that in this version. Furthermore, if you create a freeze frame in your source video in your photo library by pausing where you want it and doing a screen capture of it, then import it as a still into iMovie, it defaults to the “Ken Burns Effect,” with the photo frame zoomed in on a small portion of the photo. You can disable the Burns Effect, but you can’t then zoom out the photo to its original size and framing to use it as a freeze frame within the video it came from. If there are workarounds to solve these issues, I haven’t been able to find them in Apple’s iMovie Help or in third-party forums. I could go on and on talking about things I could do in the original iMovie 21 years ago (on a computer that had less RAM and less graphics memory than my iPad has now), but I’ll stop here. The bottom line is that Apple, in “streamlining” this app for iOS, took out all the features that made the original iMovie such a powerful tool, and such a joy to use. I only gave it 2 stars because it’s not totally useless. Just mostly useless.
Glitching
by baahgsha on 2022/01/19 16:19
Idk if it’s from my end but every time I’m editing my videos it glitches in between and it gets more longer for me to get my videos done. But other than that. This is an amazing app!
Easy to use but glitches my movies for no reason
by Ashlizzle* on 2022/01/19 07:38
Title says it all. And if it decides it’s going to case a glitch in your video/movie it’ll do it no matter how many times you try and re download it onto your phone. You’ll have to delete the whole file and start from scratch which is infuriating!
lag
by Furhthrhrj on 2022/01/19 06:39
i just got the new iphone 13 and recorded about a 20 minute video in cinematic mode, and i cant even edit it because it cannot and will not load. i cant cut clips to my liking because the second i touch the screen to do so it freezes. very disappointed as i have always loved i movie to edit my videos and i’m kinda upset that i have to download another video editing app a learn how to use it.
Not enough space on iPad
by That Noob Bot on 2022/01/19 00:03
I can’t download iMovie I deleted like 6 apps and Still can’t download iMovie
Needs fx
by sctufurthfjyf on 2022/01/18 23:36
It is awesome but… I really wish it had fx like:ghost fx where you record a video and click ghost fx and record over it (please make that in a update) other than that it is a great app pretty cool 😎👍
Annoying
by QNPF on 2022/01/18 22:53
This new version is freezing badly, stalling out and making my projects take much longer than they should! Please fix this!
Won’t let movies that take a while export
by SomeVeryCoolGuy on 2022/01/18 22:10
I wanna recommend iMovie should update soon because my movie that is 37 minutes and took a lot of time it says an ‘error has occurred’ when exporting it and when I tap on it, it usually takes forever for it to work so plz fix it
I love to make videos for my family
by Kitysniper on 2022/01/18 21:48

Not working
by Khi💕 on 2022/01/18 14:33
I just edited a video and it stopped working the app keeps freezing and closing out. I have restarted my phone and it’s still not working.
No stars
by tahvvvocxx on 2022/01/18 01:23
If I could give no stars I would. This app is driving me insane , it keeps on freezing on me. I swear I have tried 20 different solutions. Fix this c**p please.
Video Cropping
by ahallcm on 2022/01/18 00:49
This cropping is madding. You think by now they’d have this fixed.
Cool app
by Wlydeshooter on 2022/01/18 00:08
So I know this app is good and all but it is not the best editing app.I would there to be a type of background selection for green screen.Or something but this app is reliable and cool so 4 star for you.
Great app, but…
by draco-is-cute on 2022/01/17 22:11
I love this app! But there’s this one thing that’s SUPER annoying. I really like GIFs, and I think it would be really convenient if you could use them in the videos, but when you try to use them on this app, they just come out as still photos, and it’s very annoying. Please fix this! Otherwise, great app!
Amazing

by 😁🤩🥳😝🥖 on 2022/01/17 14:19
this app is okay but i wish there was an option to choose any background song from say Spotify or YouTube.
Storage messed up
by unf(nthhfth on 2022/01/17 03:58
I really want this app and it says it only requires about 500MB i thought that was a bit much but I deleted stuff and even after deleting a whole Gigabyte of storage it still says I don’t have enough storage some one please help I just want to use the app.
Great but one request…
by BlakeS100 on 2022/01/17 03:10
I used to use this app all the time and I’m going to use it even more because of the green screen options. However because I got a green screen people are asking for pictures of them vertically, however I can’t do vertical pictures/videos on here that I know of. Please add the vertical option or please tell me how to do vertical. Thanks, Blake

It stopped working on my iPhone
by na123466 on 2022/01/16 12:49
App It stopped working on my iPhone? Why? What’s going on? I tried few times removing it and reinstalling it but it’s not working. It shows a message “unable to download app” It was working perfectly fine until couple weeks ago. Can someone tell me what’s going on with your app?
Great app! But i have some suggestions!
by TStevenson2006 on 2022/01/16 01:58
I love this app. Its the best movie/editing software i have used so far, i love that there are no adds and how you are allowed to choose from lots of different types of movie genres to choose from! But my only problem is that you cannot choose the song you want for your trailers. That annoys me. Please update!!! Other than that small thing, its perfect.
Horrible
by J problem on 2022/01/15 00:28
I quit. Tried restarting my phone and all! It keep freezing and force closing. Giving iMovie an extra star because it chooses when to act right. And the transitions are getting old. Same transitions for years. All these other apps have many more. But it’s free so I guess you get what you get. 🙃 Now it’s not playing the video how a edited it.. I used to love this app
So good!
by HarryPotter109😎 on 2022/01/14 14:47
This is the best movie making app ever! I have made countless trailers and movies! It’s pretty great, it has songs, themes, and a bunch more stuff!👍😁
Garbage
by MonaLesa54 on 2022/01/14 06:22
This app could be soooo much better. 1) It crops my videos when I upload them without me knowing until the upload is finished. You have to crop the original and guess what is ideal for the app in order to not have important parts cut out. This is annoying when it already takes so long for the app to upload some of the content. 2) It takes forever to upload videos and unable to retrieve larger files above 10min from what I observe. For an iPhone app, these videos should be available off top or some of the features in camera mode should be available (like speeding up the video) in order to make viewing it in iMovie easier. 3) downloads from iCloud take FOREVER… so don’t delete a video from your phone in the process of editing a project or it will frustrate you greatly. 4) SLLLLOOOOWWWW…. Oh my goodness!!!! 5) Always says there’s not enough memory on phone… even though there is. Just fix this already… I’m over it. This is why I have issue with iPhone. I was good until I was reminded of these headaches dealing with creating/editing small videos. These apps should integrate better with the the phone or there is just no point in having them on the phone. Maybe iPhone overall is just slow. I’m starting to rethink this Apple thing. I have a 12 Pro and I’m sure the same issues exist on the 13.
Anti copyright
by Nicholas Dan on 2022/01/13 19:55
I really want to put a Spider-man song in my movie but it says something about a DRM. Can you please make an option where at the beginning of the movie you can put “the rights to Spider-Man belong to Sony pictures and Marvel studios/comics. This is a nonprofit film etc. “
Pretty good
by Tesla.B on 2022/01/13 12:05
I use it for my YouTube channel JoRob5 but you can’t blur out peoples faces and things like that
Zero editing capability
by Jdub456789543 on 2022/01/13 07:32
I need this for one thing, highlight a player for soccer, not possible, what a waste of time for me! That should be an option in the actual app…now I have days of wasted time for a video I cannot share. Also it is a 12 minute video that cannot be sent via email. Not sure what type of a movie is allowed using this app.
Bad

One Thing That Will Be Better
by Jeremiah Harper Williams on 2022/01/13 02:28
Apple can you make it so that when I delete a video from my photo app iMovie will save that deleted video on my project so I can watch my movies again?
Mid
by milllllllllllllllley on 2022/01/13 00:52
Ok so i&#39;ve had this app for a couple years and its really fun and a free way to edit ur videos. Despite this, there are few things i dont like. First off, it takes up so much storage just for a tiny video clip. Second, i made a video on here in which took me SO much time, and i deleted all the little video clips from my camera roll which made the video. Then i tried to watch the video i&#39;d created, and it said that i couldn&#39;t watch it because the videos were missing. But i thought that was the point? To keep my video in the app? Anyways, thirdly, i&#39;d like to add that the volume of the audio of my videos changes without me touching anything, which can ruin the whole video. Ok, i&#39;ve said it all i think.
Terrible app that could be great
by ejofr3 on 2022/01/12 17:10
No portrait mode which means you have to edit sideways and then rotate after if you want to edit a story. Basic functionality in general. Limited output settings. Apple could’ve something much more usable.
I love it
by Mecarpenter on 2022/01/11 21:49
I really like it because you can like put photos together and make a video I’m going to make a video and I’m it’s gonna be about a boy I like well to hehehehehehe and I can make lots of other videos too and yeah I just love it👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍A Plus 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Overall Its Okay
by Jai Reece J on 2022/01/11 14:53
The app gets the job done, but with the new iphone 13 its almost like it cant handle its features . On my Previous iPhone it did alot better . but now it just lags and crashes especially with cinematic mode. its very frustrating bc overall its a pretty good and user friendly app . but that definitely needs an update.
Worst video editing app I've seen
by Fototico on 2022/01/11 14:33
I have no idea how people say you can edit with this piece of hunk app. I loaded a video and there are not tools to crop, cut, or edit videos anywhere to be seen. I even clicked on the question mark at the top thinking that it was the help button, but ll it did was pretty much label all the button. I added another video to see if that made the editing tools show up, nope. If I could give it negative 5 stars I would. Of course it does not matter since this is an Apple app and Apple hates criticism and deletes anything people say negative about any of their products. Trust me I know. I am one who won &#39;t think twice giving an app or product a negative review, and I know from experience that Apple can&#39;t take criticisms.
I think it could be better
by Harrypotter RULES!!!🔎🔍 on 2022/01/11 14:07
I have used this a lot and it is great! But I think that you could add some new music and sound tracks, and some new filters. Thanks L.G.S
Hate it. One of Apple’s few failures.
by Red Grange on 2022/01/10 23:34
This is one of the few Apple apps that I REALLY hate. It just does not work that well and not that easy to figure out (watch YouTube videos as the Apple “instructional guide” is totally useless). The lack of visibility for tool options is terrible and clunky. Tap dancing on the screen with fingers is not at all precise and trying to edit a video is a nightmare. The “selection” function is a complete failure. Would love it if the iMovie app was added to Keynote (my favorite Apple app) as it is soooo much easier to use. Years ago, I loved iMovie and used it all of the time for creating business videos. Since then, Apple destroyed this app. Will look for better solutions that I can actually use.
O ya iMovie is the BEST of the BEST

Totally Amazing!
by Anna/Rose on 2022/01/09 19:48
This is a totally awesome app! Easy and fun to use. One thing that makes it great is there aren’t many glitches. Lots of other movie apps have glitches but when a downloaded iMovie, I was surprised to have no problems. This is an incredible app and if you want to really get in to movie making, totally download this app!!
Miserly Apple SCAM - Credit Card Required
by Mike Brady 94107 on 2022/01/09 18:53
Apple advertised in print the new iPad included a “Free 1 Year” access to Apple’s iMovie channel with every iPad purchased. That’s nice; but they neglected to say up front that in order to take advantage of this “Free” iMovie offer you must provide Apple with a credit card to register-subscribe to their fake so-called “Free” iMovie. I tried to register, like 10 times, but Apple’s online system would not accept my registration nor give me a reason as to why my application was not processing. I became very frustrated and wondered what is wrong with this new iPad. Maybe I need to return this iPad and get a replacement. After all, I’d paid for Apple’s 2nd year warranty extension. Hidden deep within Apple’s terms and conditions is a short sentence stating a credit card is required. No where was this requirement included in Apple’s advertise. I don’t and have never used credit cards; I have money and a ATM/Point of Purchase card which I used to purchase the iPad retail. Apple is statically counting on you forgetting to unsubscribe before the 365 day so-called Free trial ends, so Apple can automatically charge you a fee; a dishonest miserly Apple SCAM. Shame on Apple.
Uhm
by Hannah and Harper on 2022/01/09 17:29
So I wanted to make a photo video with my drawings and when I put a picture in then it like moves all around like I can’t make it stop like I put a picture in and the camera moves around the picture it’s annoying please fix it….??
It is really good, but needs more updates
by LetsTacoBoutDis on 2022/01/09 17:11
I have been making the trailers, but there aren’t new ones out, the same ones as last year, and the year before. Overall really good!
Good but slow
by I was never here~~~ on 2022/01/09 16:51
I love this app. It’s great. But there is one thing that should be fixed. It’s super slow. The other day, I took 10 screenshots for what should have been a 30 second video, but instead was like a minute long. Then, just today, I took about 60 screenshots for, again, what sound have been a 4-6 minute video, but instead was a 9-10 minute video. Again, I really love this app and the speed is the only thing that should to be fixed.
Glitch
by ilillililililii on 2022/01/09 04:48
Glitching is real serious.
I like it but I think you can use a few things
by unifjf🥵 on 2022/01/09 00:59
When I first got this app I felt like “ oh I’m so excited play it there’s nothing wrong and I can make unlimited movies as long as I have the storage” but when I found out the door wasn’t cool effects and just trailers I got kind of sad I think I know this is a really fun app but I didn’t really like it because I would kind a wish for like some background effects so I can make myself look like I’m in cool places anyways that was really a nice app and my recommendation is below: I recommend some background images I think you do you some background images and yeah I hope you except my request because I really like it but I think I could use an update by some background images bye! -PuppyDog118
It didn’t even focus on a picture

I don’t like this iMovie I like the old is very nice
Ugh so annoying!
by Ananomous 3334 on 2022/01/06 01:22
It works but you literally can’t do anything! If you take a video or photo it crops it and you can’t change that if you are making a trailer that is all I wanted to do! I had a great trailer until the end where it would not work. Otherwise it is ok it is slow and half my old vids that I still have pics, but the movie doesn&#39;t load they don’t work anymore. I have some really cool ones that don’t work. It just annoys me! The app just needs a few updates and would be great! The app works well for making cool things to present and I sometimes use it for school but not always because it makes the pics look weird (depending on the pic). The app is nice to cut things and make them look cool and you can add fonts and make some cool vids and all! So thanks for taking time to read my review! If the makers of the app would just tweak a few things then I would give it a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (5 star rating)!

YouTube Upload Option Gone

Great app easy to use. Until it updates... where is the YouTube upload/share function?? Also you want to export or save the video you just spend an hour editing sorry but your storage is full. Oh? I have 50 gig free on my device. Sorry your storage is full. I have to delete this app just to rest the memory along with my edited video. Just a terrible experience the devs won’t change or fix any of these issue. Horrible video editing app not the worst on the app story bc it’s free and does work…just not every time!! Do not download other video editing app that are free then have you pay a weekly fee or have all the basic editing options behind a paywall.
Wonderful

This is a very good app and it’s so good it’s my first time even bothered to do a review. It is the one and only awesome movie app
So so SO GOOD! 😋😆🤪

I’ve made lots of movies and trailers and I’m making my diary into a movie (in progress) which is such a dream come true! Plus, Greg heffley got HIS first diary into a movie. Really 2 movies. My diary is named “Diary of a good kid” since I’m REALLY good on the count I’m 9 years old. AND my name is Jasper an... oops! Back to the part about movies. So yeah, I’ve also made a movie called “The funny’s”, but it got deleted. So, that’s all I wanted to tell you! Bye! :) From: Jasper ;D To: I movie🍿
I have a problem.

So when I try to stretch out an image, it keeps taking me to the beginning of that clip.
Glitches after export
by the bird 81 on 2022/01/02 06:52
Basic app for editing videos. (Using iPhone) However, once exported from iMovie back to my iphone library, there are glitches all through the video almost like it’s lagging behind. All I did was add text to a single frame. Original videos in perfect condition, so not sure what the issue is. Only noticed after uploading videos to YouTube- had to delete videos after wasting hours uploading them only to have to start over. Frustrating.
So simple!
by IheartRoblx on 2022/01/02 02:25
It’s super simple to put an iMovie together! Just move your photos or videos into it and music or filters or titles and boom! 🤯 You put together a movie 🎥 🍿 it is the best video editor ever. Now I use it to edit every video I need edited! Buy it for your own good 😊. I also recommend this for any YouTube creators. 🥰
Decent

I use it to make trailers and sometimes roblox edits. I just wish you could cut the trailers and there was more audio. Recommend better apps like cap cut, but this is a good start.
Great app!
by jfr13 on 2022/01/01 16:12
I would to say that this app is great, suggestion? I would like to make a commercial like setup?
Whyyyyyygy

Whyyyy I can’t edit where I want it and how!?!? Make it easy!😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😡😡😡😡😡🥺😩😩😩😩😩😩🤬🤬🤬
it’s aggravating
by kqueen06. on 2022/01/01 07:57
it’ll be working perfectly fine but out of nowhere it won’t let you add background music from your camera roll, select a video or picture and it’ll start lagging
Fix your app

Can you please release it on windows 10? I screenshoted a lot and had to photo it on my phone to here!
Eh
by Luna lovegood lover💞 on 2021/12/31 21:54
It&#39;s pretty good, I just don&#39;t really get how to use it. If there was a tutorial or something at the beginning, I didn&#39;t receive it. I think that you should put a &#34;help&#34; button somewhere in the app. All my friends say it&#39;s awesome, but are way to busy to give me help or something. The app could be better.
Can someone help me

Export Issues
by Tsp213 on 2021/12/31 01:50
The editing is fine. It has the features you would expect, nothing more or less. It is somewhat user-friendly. The primary issue is saving or exporting your videos. Once you complete a project, the program often glitches, preventing you from saving the video to ANYTHING. Regardless of how much storage space, the error “Storage Full There is not enough space on this device. You cannot share until you free some space.” I have been able to successfully save one video, but for three others (two of which are smaller) this is the only message that appears regardless of the option (Copy, Save Video, Airdrop, etc). This prevents you from doing anything so the your completed project. Looking at a few forums, this is a known issue that the developer has no interest in fixing. This app is a gamble, so use it at your own risk. Honestly, Movavi is better anyway.
So good 🥳🥳
by CottageCore_Aesthetic11 on 2021/12/30 15:06
So yes! as u see in my caption, it says So good 🥳🥳 And yes it is so good! i definitely recommend this app! it’s great for users like me! i love making little movies and this is the best app made! so i recommend! -CottageCoreAesthetic
only landscape editing?! in 2021?!
by LFC143 on 2021/12/30 06:45
crazy that apple still prioritizes landscape video editing here in 2022!
Zero stars
by Aurora_The_StarWing on 2021/12/30 02:52
It’s so bad, I want to give you a zero. But I can’t, so I give you, a one.
It’s pretty good.
by Cre8tive_MadDog on 2021/07/28 15:00
I like iMovie. It’s a good and simple editing system that is really fun to use. But, there are a few things that I wish would change. First of all, the space it takes up. I don&#39;t know if there is anything you can do about this, but whenever I record little snippets for a movie, they save to my photos. And I hate that! And to make it worse, when I delete them, I can’t watch that part I filmed in the movie cause I deleted it. And yes, I know. There is something you can do about it. You finish the movie, save to photos, then you can delete all the snippets from your photos. But I wish I didn’t have to do that. I just wish it didn’t add it to my photos in general. Second, the trailers. I wish there was a bit more freedom to the trailers. The app chooses everything for you. You get to pick the topic and everything, but I wish there was more. I don’t like how iMovie chooses the music, how long the clips have to be, and how long the trailer is in the first place. I don’t usually write reviews, but this app deserved one. Other than some of my complaints, this was a really good app. Everything is free and available, there are more editing possibilities, and it looks very professional. Again, if there’s anything you can do about my complaints, I would do it. I feel like these are common complaints and you would get more buyers if you fixed or changed them. Thanks!
I have played it before but I tots love IT###$&@%🍩💓💓
by 123krauss on 2021/11/29 01:54
So I played this game before and I’ve seen it before it’s just for some reason it’s uinstalled I’ve already made some but my two favorites are $###tik###$ and $###tok###$what are I love about this game is usually in some edit games they are ads but none in this game! Those two that I said I made them today and they look really aesthetic and pretty anime so you should really install the game it’s a really good one for animating if you don’t like ads and if your mom doesn’t like paying for stuff lol and how I did it was I got this wallpaper app I took some of the pictures from it and I made it into a little video and it’s really cool and what I like about it is that you can record music which is really great it’s just if there’s sound behind it it sounds super weird so you got to tell like your parents to be quiet or something on the tik one I had to re-record it so many times because my mom was making noise so if everything is really quiet that actually won’t happen on tok I had to do it like twice or like three times It didn’t take long because my mom was in my bedroom and there wasn’t any noise. So you should really get this app it’s a really fun one I’ve had it before and if it’s the uinstalls go onto the App Store find iMovie and just press the cloud with an a little arrow and it will reinstall and everything will be all better and anyways this is really long so it’s OK if you skip to another rate OK bye!!!!!!!
Almost perfect, almost!
by ResSil151 on 2020/05/05 08:44
So. It’s very rare that I leave a review on apps, but this one deserves it. I have been having an absolute blast with this, especially since I’ve really gotten into drone photography and it’s the perfect tool to make for video editing. My favorite feature honestly is making the movie trailers, it’s so fun with a compilation of media. The ONLY issue I have with it is that I’d love more freedom. Once you pick the general theme it predetermines what you can do. It boxes you into a certain amount of clips per section and has a variety of different kinds that you cant control whatsoever. So for example. One section in the trailer would have 3 slots for clips. The first one would be a .9 second, the next one would be a 3 second closeup (which is very annoying since it zooms way in on the picture or video and there’s nothing you can do to adjust it or stop it.) so if it’s a video it could focus in and cut out what you actually want to show in the clip which makes it impossible to use a lot of media. The third one could be 1.5 seconds. The fact that you can’t change the number of possible clips in a section and that you can’t change the duration of any of the clips is very frustrating. But beyond that this is an AMAZING app that I will love using for a long time, definitely worth having to be more strategic on what media I place where.
Won’t allow me to select clip
by Dreamscape82 on 2021/04/27 16:33
With the new update you guys have a bug or something going on. I been using this app for over a year now to edit my videos but with this new update I struggle to select a clip to create. It won’t allow me to select it. I have to repeatedly restart the app to fix this, sometimes even restart my phone. I’ve even tried uninstalling the app and reinstalling it, done that twice so far. Still same issue. This is the worst issue I’ve ran across but there is more. Please fix this issue! This app I would be a five star for me but I can’t give it that with this issue that has been ongoing for about two months now or so. Usually it has a select clip option and highlights blue when it selects the clip But now it highlights a gold looking color when you tap the clip you want and it don’t give the option to select and create movie clip. This is so frustrating I have no idea what you guys did in this new update but this was never a issue until about two months ago. How can I create my movie clips if it’s not giving me the option to select and create the movie? I found the best way past this is tapping the select all option in which will select all videos in that column which can be up to 3 to 5 different recent videos, so I’ve been having to do that then go back through when it creates it into the editing table and delete the clips I did not want. Wow! Can you see how frustrating and time consuming this bug can be!? Very frustrating! Please fix it!
Great, But Here is a Suggestion
by QwQ GamerGirl on 2020/06/28 15:29
Yes, iMovie is a great movie and trailer or film maker, you can make retro trailers/films/movies, romance, teens, family, fairy tale, swashbuckler, expedition, superhero, scary, coming of age, indie, Bollywood, adrenaline, and narrative movies films or trailers. I know, a lot of options 😅. But... There should be an option where you can change the music and where you can have the images and videos you took on iMovie only be stored in the movies on your app, not the gallery. It is a huge waste of space for your device, especially if you make lots of movies/trailers like me. I wish you could make the trailers longer than a minute, and can make it 1-4 minutes at least for trailers. When making a trailer, you can’t hear any talking or sounds just music. Maybe still keep the music, because that is still cool, but make there a setting where you can turn off music and can hear talking and sounds. Still a very great app I recommend, but I am just hoping for an update that will change that and further experience in the update. I hope this is good enough to explain the change I’d be grateful for and to explain to others who might download this app. Please make this change though, if not, it’s fine but thx anyways ☺️
LOVE IT
by happy panacorn on 2020/05/15 22:41
This....is......the......best......editing......software.....I’ve....ever....use. Other editing apps make everything over complicated by making it look all “professional” or “easy”. Some apps make it so you can’t find anything and you have to enter all these strange unhelpful commands while others all you can do is plop the video in, put in a filter, and maybe add some random sounds. But this app is so good! You can do so much with it, it’s super easy, AND if you are willing to spice things up you can put it into pro mode where you can do even more! It’s even better because IT HAS A FRICKING UNDO BUTTON! It’s so helpful if you made a big mistake and you don’t want to have to do it all over again! It also has so many transitions that are so fun to play with along with the funny and awesome sound effects (my favorite it the time travel one) the only thing I have to complained about is that the default transition is fade and so I have to go through my entire video and put it to the standard one witch really annoys me I would also like a *BLEEP* sound effect because it’s so good for humor and if someone says...something... but other than that it’s so good and I don’t understand why it’s only rated 3.9 stars WHEN IT CLEARLY DESERVES A 4.5! soooo yea that’s all I have to say!
I’ve only seen 1080P results on an iPhone 8
by FOFS on 2019/12/05 22:54
As far as I can tell, iMovie works great. I had to do some overlay stuff (PIP) which required me to look up instructions for that online, and I learned a lot about other more “advanced” features as well. Once, during many, many edits of a short video, it did seem to stop working, so I just restarted it. I’m looking forward to adding my own music next to see how that works. It’s super easy once you get the hang of it after searching specific online instructions. I mean, skip the basic feature instructions, they are already very straightforward and more or less intuitive. And what a bargain it is!👍 Meanwhile, those other video editing apps might not even have the some of the features you want, except maybe for an extra charge, and/or vampirize your wallet with regular subscription fees, charge $90 for a one time fee, and end up having you in fetal position shaking like a leaf in a corner somewhere wondering how you, at least temporarily, lost that full, unlocked app you already paid a much better price for that went to a $ubscription plan. If this app crashes on your phone or iPad, I don’t have anything supercalifragilistic to say about that. So far, I have no complaints in that department whatsoever.
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!!
Great app, but some problems ...
by Abcdfam on 2021/10/01 19:42
I have been using this app for 2 years , almost 3. Since I was a new editor, it was kinda new for me and it was a great start. ___________________________________________________________________ Until I started to realize stuff😶.... such as: to much storage or... some of it is downloading from iCloud. It was super annoying but the storage part was mostly my fault. My family had used it on computer which was better on iPad / phone . And I used it on a phone, it had so many more cooler effects ... and using audio is very hard- 🙃 I have to use someone else’s audio since there’s only music ... it was terrible I’m looking at some new editing apps, and.. not going so well . And , the trailers are fun... but I’ve used a lot of them and they get boring sometimes...😕 (I recommend this if you’re new) and once you have mastered it, get a different one. You can still use imove but , this is just my opinion after all ☺️. And I really would love it if you would add green screens or backgrounds to iPad .... so far, I might change editing apps but this is a great app for beginners 🥰 so good luck everyone and I hope you have a good day/night!
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.
This App Changed Me
by Niyomy on 2021/07/25 15:35
Ok so this is a default app on your iPad right? I was bored and I downloaded it. First impression 🤯! Mind Blown it’s completely changed me I got into editing and I make a lot of home movies and sit there for hours just editing! I love it especially how you can split a video, crop, split the audio, green screen, and sooooo much more. Its a great start I’ve been using it for like 1-2 years and it’s amazing! I love all the different options. But I do have a suggestion what if you could add more editing stuff for photos. I meen don’t get me wrong the video editing is great and it’s nice how you can add filters to videos and photos but I only have 3 options with photos, Crop, Filters, and Another thing I can’t remember but that’s pretty much it. Even if you didn’t add more stuff for photos it’s fine it’s still a great app. I just have to take it into another app to edit photos or let it be. P.S. this is just a tip but for the title how it goes through whole clip just split the video where you want to start and end the put in the text and you can click ... and make it full duration or not full duration
Garbage
by MonaLesa54 on 2022/01/14 06:22
This app could be soooo much better. 1) It crops my videos when I upload them without me knowing until the upload is finished. You have to crop the original and guess what is ideal for the app in order to not have important parts cut out. This is annoying when it already takes so long for the app to upload some of the content. 2) It takes forever to upload videos and unable to retrieve larger files above 10min from what I observe. For an iPhone app, these videos should be available off top or some of the features in camera mode should be available (like speeding up the video) in order to make viewing it in iMovie easier. 3) downloads from iCloud take FOREVER… so don’t delete a video from your phone in the process of editing a project or it will frustrate you greatly. 4) SLLLLOOOOWWWW…. Oh my goodness!!!! 5) Always says there’s not enough memory on phone… even though there is. Just fix this already… I’m over it. This is why I have issue with iPhone. I was good until I was reminded of these headaches dealing with creating/editing small videos. These apps should integrate better with the the phone or there is just no point in having them on the phone. Maybe iPhone overall is just slow. I’m starting to rethink this Apple thing. I have a 12 Pro and I’m sure the same issues exist on the 13.
OH MY WORD I LOVE THIS APP!!! 😍😍
by Edog🐶🐶 on 2020/11/28 02:01
Hi everybody! I love the app IMovie. It all started on one Saturday night when my friend was over. I was making a commercial for my fake toy store just for kicks and then my friend asked, “Are you using IMovie?” I had no clue what IMovie was. She said it was an app that you can make trailers and movies on it. The very next day I decided to try out IMovie, sense it was already on my IPad ( for some reason it came on my IPad.) I didn’t know how to work the app, so I just kind of left IMovie alone for awhile. A few days later, I was randomly at my friend’s house. We made a movie trailer on IMovie, but we did’t get to make the movie. That afternoon when I got home, I decided to give IMovie another try because I now understood how to work it after watching my friend use it. From then on, I kept on making trailers. I never do the movies, but I make SO many trailers. I make them with my friends, and my family. It’s so fun to make them and then show them to your family. Overall, I totally recommend this app for making trailers. Thank you for reading, and I hope you try IMovie. God bless you, and stay safe.😊
Not as great as I remember
by juststankylegandmoveon on 2020/05/20 01:53
When I started using iMovie as an beginner’s tool a couple years back, it was very easy to use and understand. Every video I made came out exactly as I edited it, and I could do it for hours on end with no issues. Now, I have moved on to other softwares as I’ve improved, but I came back to this one to use as a base for my more simple clips and audios; plus I already knew how to use it and expected it to be just as easy as I remembered. But, coming back, I notice how it keeps crashing, whether it is a sudden black screen that forces me back to my home screen a second later, or even glitches within the app. For instance, I tried changing the volume of an audio by selecting it—and it split it where I had selected it?? It may sound like a small bug, but it gets very frustrating when it happens over and over again and I have to undo it. It was never like that before. Same issue with clips, sometimes it won’t even let me select one I want to crop or slow down, etc. It forces me to leave the project, the app itself, sometimes even to the point of turning my phone off just to get it running again—just to get it to crash again. I really hope you guys find this and fix even the small issues, iMovie was so brilliant before.

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
it can’t even crop a video.
by nicndhs on 2021/11/21 06:59
This app is horrible. And I mean HORRIBLE. I used to use it to crop videos from the photos app on iphone but one day the option to do that disappeared from the photos app. So i went into the imovie app itself. Trying to crop the video itself was a pain. Trying to crop off just a few seconds took minutes because of lag. Once i was finally able to crop my video (i only needed to crop off around a minute) the change didn’t even save! Well it did. But it wouldn’t let me download or upload my edit at all! It would SHOW me the edit i made when i went to look at the video but when i downloaded the video it just gave me the original uncropped video. So i eventually found a strange work around where it would let me download my cropped video ONLY if i cropped it while selecting it as the video i want to edit. But get this. When i finally downloaded my cropped video it was completely horrendous! There were glitches EVERYWHERE. I swear to god looking at the video for too long would cause a seizure. The screen was constantly shaking and playing between the last few frames and the next making it a completely disoriented mess. Theres no way my file was corrupted because i was literally just trying to crop a screen recording. This app is horrible. Use something else.
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.
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.
Pretty good

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.
Not what I wanted.
by hony bare 2000 on 2021/05/17 16:15
I got iMove because I wanted to make videos but with only using pictures, and I heard this was a good app. But whenever I but in pictures ken burns is ALWAYS ON! It’s annoying. I’ll turn it off, but then I leave from editing it and close the app, and when I go back it’s on again. I turn ken burns off on all the pictures, and crop them to be the size and place I want, but I can’t because they go back to how they originally were. I also don’t like how I can’t shorten the clips to a really short length, the shortest it can go is around a second, I want it to be shorter then a seconds, what if I’m making a fast paced edit with pictures that are only on screen for half a second, I can’t do that. And because I only 11 I can’t buy other editing apps without my parents consent. And they think that this is the best app, and I Should only use this. I think this app would improve if you could add a setting were you can automatically turn ken burns off, and have the photos back to where they should be, size and shape. It should also be cool if you could make it so you could shorten the length of clips even more. Thank you for reading this.
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.
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.
One word- BEST!!!!!
by bluegiraffeHCD on 2021/12/20 04:24
This is pretty much the best app ever. I spend a lot of time using this. I have about 100 movies. Couple complaints: 1: please don’t have pictures closeup. It’s pretty annoying when you make a trailer and you find out when you watch it you have to redo many videos or photos. It would be a lot easier if all the photos/ videos were all the same. 2: in the trailers please make all the videos or photos the same length. I believe about 3 sec would be appropriate for everything. Some suggestions 1: please make more trailer themes. Whenever I make a trailer, it usually has to do with everyday life or fun occasions. Examples: playing outside, a play I was in, vacation to Florida. But all the themes are action themes, mystery themes, and they just don’t fit with my pictures. Please make themes with sweet music and colorful backgrounds. 2: please make more themes for movies as well. Few questions What’s the difference between iMovie project and iMovie theatre? Also how do I use the green screen effect? On iMovie help it said I needed to overlay a video or photo but i have tried and tried but can’t figure out how to do it! Besides those tiny bugs that you can get over with and even get used to, and you would think I would put 3 stars but I use this app every day and it just keeps getting better. I would give it 10 stars and more you can’t get a better app. it’s a really great and I totally recommend it!!!!!!
Barely good enough
by Kazuidae on 2021/07/02 20:30
Now, I’ve never used an actual editing program, like the fancy ones on the computer, but I have seen what they can do. And I can safely say that after using Imovie for many grueling hours trying to edit stuff just for fun, it wasn’t fun at all, it was slow and frustrating. The text feature is weird, why not just make it so you can stretch the text across multiple frames instead of just each individual frame. And more filters would be nice, I wanna feel like I’m editing a video not a picture. If I wanted to do that I’d just open my gallery. Also, I want to be able to overlay gifs on top of a picture, ex: I wanted to overlay a gif onto one of my frames, and it kind of worked, but not in the way I was hoping. Because like I said with the text, I wasn’t able to even stretch it across all my frames, I could only add the gif to each individual frame which was super disappointing. I understand Imovie isn’t some grand editing software, but I primarily do most of my work on my Ipad, and I can’t pay for a good editing software just yet. So I’m just kinda stuck with what I can get, and honestly, I’m gonna try looking for other alternatives. -Not angry, just disappointed.
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! 🙏🏻
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.
⚠️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.
PLEASE FIX THIS
by merry shakouri on 2020/05/01 20:59
I’m not even kidding I was working for hours on Editing my yt vid and I was finally done. I usually watch the whole thing to check if I didn’t everything right. Tell me why every single overlay I took 5 minutes to do each was early. Everything got messed up. I have to redo it now. I was crying for like 20 minutes straight. I’m not even kidding I’m SO MAD. I took time out of studying so I could finish this video. Then iMovie glitches and puts every single over lay that I spent a long time to be perfect, earlier than it should have been. This is not the first time. I’m not gonna keep wasting my time to do a video then this ends up happening. Please fix this problem. Cause I can’t handle it anymore. It’s 5:00 am rn I started editing at 10:00 pm. And everything is messed up. I am so furious. And sad. And every single bad emotion. Hello I’m editing this. The same thing happens again. I finished the video again and the same thing happened. I’m literally about to lose my mind. And I can’t update it then all my progress on other projects will be lost
Overall being ruined by many problems.
by 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.
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!!
Not bad, but it’s missing something...
by Little Workhorse on 2021/03/25 14:50
I have used iMovie ever since I’ve had this iPad. It’s simple, easy to understand, and fun. But there are three thing I would like to see added to give a little bit more control. 1. More control over volume and sound design. Like having the the volume slider plus bass gain and distortion sliders so you can make an audio recording sound vintage, huge, or just plain silly. 2. More control over speed and pitch. The speed control slider is already intuitive, but instead of going to 2x speed, I think it should go up to 8x speed to match 1/8th speed. I would like for a separate pitch control slider because having pitch controlled by speed and vice versa is now feeling a bit limiting. 3. The addition of explosion, gunfire, and engine sound effects and the ability to use tracks from Apple Music. The explosion sound effects can just be regular old explosions, same as gunfire, but both should have a distant and close-up variant. The engine sound effect should be up that of a V8 with muffled and straight-piped variants. You should be able to chose starting rpm, ending rpm and load for each clip. For example, you would add the straight-piped V8 sound effect, choose a 3250 rpm start, a 6500 rpm end, full load. It should sound a lot like an LS, which is technically the most common American V8. Other than that, it’s a really fun app. So, I guess you could keep the controls simple, otherwise, it’s not really iMovie anymore.
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!
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&#39;d think it&#39;d be WAY less glitchy. No matter what I do, the same glitches seem to occur for me over the past years. I&#39;ve been through three different phones, and it&#39;s a bummer because I can&#39;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&#39;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&#39;t seem to fix this or get it to save to my phone differently. It&#39;s really agitating seeing as how it&#39;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
It’s so good!!!
by crystal demon on 2021/08/31 21:08
So I had used iMovie for a year now and it’s so good but a few suggestions #1 can you make a place with movies and trailers with effects it’s would make my Gacha life mini movies better #2 I would like in movies and trailers if you could search your own music instead of having to buy it cause I don’t have the money I’m only 8 pls change that #3 I would like if you could make something where the tiny clips would not save to photos and when I delete them I can’t watch the movie so also pls change that and also actually every clip pls #4 I would in trailers if you could make different backrounds stuff like were your studio name is and the backrounds to it can you add more pls like on my trailer a horse without a rider I couldn’t find a good background so pls add more #5 HAVE FUN AND ENJOY THE GAME!!! I do really recommend getting this game it’s amazing you have all my Regards snow wolf 😍🥰😘😁🤩
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&#39;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!
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.
Miserly Apple SCAM - Credit Card Required
by Mike Brady 94107 on 2022/01/09 18:53
Apple advertised in print the new iPad included a “Free 1 Year” access to Apple’s iMovie channel with every iPad purchased. That’s nice; but they neglected to say up front that in order to take advantage of this “Free” iMovie offer you must provide Apple with a credit card to register-subscribe to their fake so-called “Free” iMovie. I tried to register, like 10 times, but Apple’s online system would not accept my registration nor give me a reason as to why my application was not processing. I became very frustrated and wondered what is wrong with this new iPad. Maybe I need to return this iPad and get a replacement. After all, I’d paid for Apple’s 2nd year warranty extension. Hidden deep within Apple’s terms and conditions is a short sentence stating a credit card is required. No where was this requirement included in Apple’s advertise. I don’t and have never used credit cards; I have money and a ATM/Point of Purchase card which I used to purchase the iPad retail. Apple is statically counting on you forgetting to unsubscribe before the 365 day so-called Free trial ends, so Apple can automatically charge you a fee; a dishonest miserly Apple SCAM. Shame on Apple.
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 .
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

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.
Good for simple videos
by Professional Hockey Player on 2021/08/12 15:19
If you are just making SIMPLE videos then this app is all you need. However, there are many technical issues or glitches when using. A big one is trying to put text over certain sections of clips, the interface for it does not work the way it should and more than half the time it defaults to the whole clip and there’s nothing you can do to fix it. Another issue I have with it, is you don’t have the option to create an intro or outro. What I’ve found is that you’ll have to use a third party app to create such a thing, save it to your camera roll, and then import it into iMovie if you so choose to continue using this app. I have used it for several videos, and it gets the job done for most, but it is very simplistic. So, my recommendation is that if you are looking to be a content creator, you will want to use better video editing software to really captivate your audience and give the presentation that will bring in and maintain viewers. This app is good for what it is though!
Great possibilities, major memory management flaws
by P. Jones Moody on 2021/01/27 17:17
Generally, it all works very well, but there are some issues that remain unresolved: 1) Memory usage, especially when exporting the final product. There seems to be a hidden memory cache that doesn’t get wiped as often as needed. I have often run into issues with the app telling me there is not enough memory to share the project, after it has already “processed” a significant chunk of it, even though Settings tells me I have over 200GB of device memory available. My remedy: (a) every time I start a new project, I delete all existing projects in the iMovie app, then delete the iMovie app itself, then reboot the iPad, then re-download the app, and then begin the project. (2) factory reset my iPad when that method fails (which is approximately every other month) 2) Audio/Video synchronization and waveform inconsistencies. Sometimes when editing clips, the audio waveform jumps ahead or behind, although the audio itself *sounds correct* while still editing. Sometimes, after the final export, certain clips have audio that is shifted ahead or behind the video by a significant margin.
Great place to start, but terrible to continue.
by Ze Operator on 2020/06/26 01:00
I’ll get straight to the point - the app does its job in acting as a post-production workstation, even on its mobile version. You can certainly make a nice film out of it if you try hard enough. Unfortunately, there is a severe lack of tools and a heavy amount of restriction that actually make it worth coming back to. Things like limiting the aspect ratio on photo (with the default setting to apply ken burns when usually it’s a filler method to make photos look good. There’s absolutely no need to add ken burns to EVERY photograph), limiting the amount of audio files attached to each slide to 4 per shot, limited amount of transitions, filters, and just a heavy restriction overall in terms of what movie we want to make over conventional work. Naturally, everyone has to start somewhere. But simply letting a workstation limit the amount that you can do for a movie is almost like mitigating wanting to make a good home movie at all. Feel free to use this. But if you’re a seasoned post-production editor, please consider the following before you use this.

iMovie is a amazing tool for making videos.
They could care less
by Stuntastics on 2022/01/21 04:47
Which is sad. This app hasn’t changed in ten years. It doesn’t even edit vertical video taken from the device its made for.
Thank you

Extremely dumb
by K1dBrand0n on 2022/01/21 00:00
I am a youtuber and I like to talk in my video’s but whenever I use the IPADS INBUILT MICROPHONE TO PICK UP ON MY VOICE, this app just says no AND GETS RID OF THE AUDIO, and it’s not like complete silence, it still has the game audio SO THIS IS STUPID
Still missing something
by jujuhyhjhffdbjhvrf on 2022/01/20 22:16
Awesome movie maker I love all the features! When I got the app I was looking at a video to see how to use it than I went back on iMovie a few days later and tried to find the feature. I couldn’t find it even though it was on the video. I don’t know if there is an upgraded iMovie but didn’t see one on the App Store. After a little of research, I realized that I already had the most upgraded iMovie. This was another problem of mine, after I got the hang of iMovie I tried to go on the app and it said “download again and try again later” which I had know idea what it meant but I thought maybe I was running out of space? So I checked my storage and it totally had enough space. I kept trying over and over again but still nothing. So I don’t know about those two things but I hope you fix it. Again love the features
Slow and unresponsive
by Mirocal on 2022/01/20 06:40
…with just 9 min of 4K XDR videos on an iPhone 13 pro. Else: very limited app, with two major pain points: - terrible HD quality output, with zero settings to adjust resolution and compression; - in the age of phone videography, iMovie still doesn’t support vertical format, albeit in a contrived way with resolution loss. Lameware.
EQ/Noise Reduction
by malcb11 on 2022/01/20 01:14
Great app for quick video editing. I did a voiceover and would like to be able to equalize my volume and reduce the background noise coming from the apple headphone mic
Was good, but the new update ruined it.
by LokiVonDoberman on 2022/01/19 20:30
iMovie previously was a pretty great video editor, but they released an update and the app is constantly lagging making it horrible to edit videos on.
A disappointing shell of the original
by bhirschi on 2022/01/19 20:21
I got my first taste of iMovie when I bought my smoke gray Apple iMac DV Special Edition 21 years ago. Back then, it was revolutionary – incredibly simple and intuitive, yet an extremely powerful video editing tool. It’s not hyperbole to say that the original iMovie brought video editing – which back then required specialized equipment and software costing tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars – to the masses. Given my history with this app, it’s hard to find the words to express how disappointed I am with this version. It’s no longer simple, no longer intuitive, and worst of all, VERY limiting to creativity. Just two examples: • In the original iMovie, when you separated audio &amp; video, THEY WERE ACTUALLY SEPARATED, and the user could edit them separately, going so far as to lay new video clips over existing sound. You can’t do that in this version. If you delete a video clip, even after detaching the sound, the sound is deleted with it. • In the original iMovie, you could render a frame of video as a still, effectively creating a freeze frame, which could be made any length you want to make it. You can’t do that in this version. Furthermore, if you create a freeze frame in your source video in your photo library by pausing where you want it and doing a screen capture of it, then import it as a still into iMovie, it defaults to the “Ken Burns Effect,” with the photo frame zoomed in on a small portion of the photo. You can disable the Burns Effect, but you can’t then zoom out the photo to its original size and framing to use it as a freeze frame within the video it came from. If there are workarounds to solve these issues, I haven’t been able to find them in Apple’s iMovie Help or in third-party forums. I could go on and on talking about things I could do in the original iMovie 21 years ago (on a computer that had less RAM and less graphics memory than my iPad has now), but I’ll stop here. The bottom line is that Apple, in “streamlining” this app for iOS, took out all the features that made the original iMovie such a powerful tool, and such a joy to use. I only gave it 2 stars because it’s not totally useless. Just mostly useless.
Glitching
by baahgsha on 2022/01/19 16:19
Idk if it’s from my end but every time I’m editing my videos it glitches in between and it gets more longer for me to get my videos done. But other than that. This is an amazing app!
Easy to use but glitches my movies for no reason
by Ashlizzle* on 2022/01/19 07:38
Title says it all. And if it decides it’s going to case a glitch in your video/movie it’ll do it no matter how many times you try and re download it onto your phone. You’ll have to delete the whole file and start from scratch which is infuriating!
lag
by Furhthrhrj on 2022/01/19 06:39
i just got the new iphone 13 and recorded about a 20 minute video in cinematic mode, and i cant even edit it because it cannot and will not load. i cant cut clips to my liking because the second i touch the screen to do so it freezes. very disappointed as i have always loved i movie to edit my videos and i’m kinda upset that i have to download another video editing app a learn how to use it.
Not enough space on iPad
by That Noob Bot on 2022/01/19 00:03
I can’t download iMovie I deleted like 6 apps and Still can’t download iMovie
Needs fx
by sctufurthfjyf on 2022/01/18 23:36
It is awesome but… I really wish it had fx like:ghost fx where you record a video and click ghost fx and record over it (please make that in a update) other than that it is a great app pretty cool 😎👍
Annoying
by QNPF on 2022/01/18 22:53
This new version is freezing badly, stalling out and making my projects take much longer than they should! Please fix this!
Won’t let movies that take a while export
by SomeVeryCoolGuy on 2022/01/18 22:10
I wanna recommend iMovie should update soon because my movie that is 37 minutes and took a lot of time it says an ‘error has occurred’ when exporting it and when I tap on it, it usually takes forever for it to work so plz fix it
I love to make videos for my family
by Kitysniper on 2022/01/18 21:48

Not working
by Khi💕 on 2022/01/18 14:33
I just edited a video and it stopped working the app keeps freezing and closing out. I have restarted my phone and it’s still not working.
No stars
by tahvvvocxx on 2022/01/18 01:23
If I could give no stars I would. This app is driving me insane , it keeps on freezing on me. I swear I have tried 20 different solutions. Fix this c**p please.
Video Cropping
by ahallcm on 2022/01/18 00:49
This cropping is madding. You think by now they’d have this fixed.
Cool app
by Wlydeshooter on 2022/01/18 00:08
So I know this app is good and all but it is not the best editing app.I would there to be a type of background selection for green screen.Or something but this app is reliable and cool so 4 star for you.
Great app, but…
by draco-is-cute on 2022/01/17 22:11
I love this app! But there’s this one thing that’s SUPER annoying. I really like GIFs, and I think it would be really convenient if you could use them in the videos, but when you try to use them on this app, they just come out as still photos, and it’s very annoying. Please fix this! Otherwise, great app!
Amazing
by sur cuddles mc cutie pue on 2022/01/17 21:10

SO GOOD
by MacyMacy acy on 2022/01/17 17:56

by 😁🤩🥳😝🥖 on 2022/01/17 14:19
this app is okay but i wish there was an option to choose any background song from say Spotify or YouTube.
Storage messed up
by unf(nthhfth on 2022/01/17 03:58
I really want this app and it says it only requires about 500MB i thought that was a bit much but I deleted stuff and even after deleting a whole Gigabyte of storage it still says I don’t have enough storage some one please help I just want to use the app.
Great but one request…
by BlakeS100 on 2022/01/17 03:10
I used to use this app all the time and I’m going to use it even more because of the green screen options. However because I got a green screen people are asking for pictures of them vertically, however I can’t do vertical pictures/videos on here that I know of. Please add the vertical option or please tell me how to do vertical. Thanks, Blake
iOS 14 or <

PJSSSSNSAKAK WHATEVER I LOVE THE APP BUT I NEED THE NEW VERISON FUUFDUDJ
It stopped working on my iPhone
by na123466 on 2022/01/16 12:49
App It stopped working on my iPhone? Why? What’s going on? I tried few times removing it and reinstalling it but it’s not working. It shows a message “unable to download app” It was working perfectly fine until couple weeks ago. Can someone tell me what’s going on with your app?
Great app! But i have some suggestions!
by TStevenson2006 on 2022/01/16 01:58
I love this app. Its the best movie/editing software i have used so far, i love that there are no adds and how you are allowed to choose from lots of different types of movie genres to choose from! But my only problem is that you cannot choose the song you want for your trailers. That annoys me. Please update!!! Other than that small thing, its perfect.
Horrible
by J problem on 2022/01/15 00:28
I quit. Tried restarting my phone and all! It keep freezing and force closing. Giving iMovie an extra star because it chooses when to act right. And the transitions are getting old. Same transitions for years. All these other apps have many more. But it’s free so I guess you get what you get. 🙃 Now it’s not playing the video how a edited it.. I used to love this app
So good!
by HarryPotter109😎 on 2022/01/14 14:47
This is the best movie making app ever! I have made countless trailers and movies! It’s pretty great, it has songs, themes, and a bunch more stuff!👍😁
Garbage
by MonaLesa54 on 2022/01/14 06:22
This app could be soooo much better. 1) It crops my videos when I upload them without me knowing until the upload is finished. You have to crop the original and guess what is ideal for the app in order to not have important parts cut out. This is annoying when it already takes so long for the app to upload some of the content. 2) It takes forever to upload videos and unable to retrieve larger files above 10min from what I observe. For an iPhone app, these videos should be available off top or some of the features in camera mode should be available (like speeding up the video) in order to make viewing it in iMovie easier. 3) downloads from iCloud take FOREVER… so don’t delete a video from your phone in the process of editing a project or it will frustrate you greatly. 4) SLLLLOOOOWWWW…. Oh my goodness!!!! 5) Always says there’s not enough memory on phone… even though there is. Just fix this already… I’m over it. This is why I have issue with iPhone. I was good until I was reminded of these headaches dealing with creating/editing small videos. These apps should integrate better with the the phone or there is just no point in having them on the phone. Maybe iPhone overall is just slow. I’m starting to rethink this Apple thing. I have a 12 Pro and I’m sure the same issues exist on the 13.
Anti copyright
by Nicholas Dan on 2022/01/13 19:55
I really want to put a Spider-man song in my movie but it says something about a DRM. Can you please make an option where at the beginning of the movie you can put “the rights to Spider-Man belong to Sony pictures and Marvel studios/comics. This is a nonprofit film etc. “
Pretty good
by Tesla.B on 2022/01/13 12:05
I use it for my YouTube channel JoRob5 but you can’t blur out peoples faces and things like that
Zero editing capability
by Jdub456789543 on 2022/01/13 07:32
I need this for one thing, highlight a player for soccer, not possible, what a waste of time for me! That should be an option in the actual app…now I have days of wasted time for a video I cannot share. Also it is a 12 minute video that cannot be sent via email. Not sure what type of a movie is allowed using this app.
Bad

One Thing That Will Be Better
by Jeremiah Harper Williams on 2022/01/13 02:28
Apple can you make it so that when I delete a video from my photo app iMovie will save that deleted video on my project so I can watch my movies again?
Mid
by milllllllllllllllley on 2022/01/13 00:52
Ok so i&#39;ve had this app for a couple years and its really fun and a free way to edit ur videos. Despite this, there are few things i dont like. First off, it takes up so much storage just for a tiny video clip. Second, i made a video on here in which took me SO much time, and i deleted all the little video clips from my camera roll which made the video. Then i tried to watch the video i&#39;d created, and it said that i couldn&#39;t watch it because the videos were missing. But i thought that was the point? To keep my video in the app? Anyways, thirdly, i&#39;d like to add that the volume of the audio of my videos changes without me touching anything, which can ruin the whole video. Ok, i&#39;ve said it all i think.
Terrible app that could be great
by ejofr3 on 2022/01/12 17:10
No portrait mode which means you have to edit sideways and then rotate after if you want to edit a story. Basic functionality in general. Limited output settings. Apple could’ve something much more usable.
I love it
by Mecarpenter on 2022/01/11 21:49
I really like it because you can like put photos together and make a video I’m going to make a video and I’m it’s gonna be about a boy I like well to hehehehehehe and I can make lots of other videos too and yeah I just love it👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍A Plus 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Overall Its Okay
by Jai Reece J on 2022/01/11 14:53
The app gets the job done, but with the new iphone 13 its almost like it cant handle its features . On my Previous iPhone it did alot better . but now it just lags and crashes especially with cinematic mode. its very frustrating bc overall its a pretty good and user friendly app . but that definitely needs an update.
Worst video editing app I've seen
by Fototico on 2022/01/11 14:33
I have no idea how people say you can edit with this piece of hunk app. I loaded a video and there are not tools to crop, cut, or edit videos anywhere to be seen. I even clicked on the question mark at the top thinking that it was the help button, but ll it did was pretty much label all the button. I added another video to see if that made the editing tools show up, nope. If I could give it negative 5 stars I would. Of course it does not matter since this is an Apple app and Apple hates criticism and deletes anything people say negative about any of their products. Trust me I know. I am one who won &#39;t think twice giving an app or product a negative review, and I know from experience that Apple can&#39;t take criticisms.
I think it could be better
by Harrypotter RULES!!!🔎🔍 on 2022/01/11 14:07
I have used this a lot and it is great! But I think that you could add some new music and sound tracks, and some new filters. Thanks L.G.S
Hate it. One of Apple’s few failures.
by Red Grange on 2022/01/10 23:34
This is one of the few Apple apps that I REALLY hate. It just does not work that well and not that easy to figure out (watch YouTube videos as the Apple “instructional guide” is totally useless). The lack of visibility for tool options is terrible and clunky. Tap dancing on the screen with fingers is not at all precise and trying to edit a video is a nightmare. The “selection” function is a complete failure. Would love it if the iMovie app was added to Keynote (my favorite Apple app) as it is soooo much easier to use. Years ago, I loved iMovie and used it all of the time for creating business videos. Since then, Apple destroyed this app. Will look for better solutions that I can actually use.
O ya iMovie is the BEST of the BEST
by mgiecd on 2022/01/10 23:19

by alfred jones 2020 on 2022/01/10 02:33
omg i love this app so much!!!!!! it helped me make my style mvs ^o^
Totally Amazing!
by Anna/Rose on 2022/01/09 19:48
This is a totally awesome app! Easy and fun to use. One thing that makes it great is there aren’t many glitches. Lots of other movie apps have glitches but when a downloaded iMovie, I was surprised to have no problems. This is an incredible app and if you want to really get in to movie making, totally download this app!!
Miserly Apple SCAM - Credit Card Required
by Mike Brady 94107 on 2022/01/09 18:53
Apple advertised in print the new iPad included a “Free 1 Year” access to Apple’s iMovie channel with every iPad purchased. That’s nice; but they neglected to say up front that in order to take advantage of this “Free” iMovie offer you must provide Apple with a credit card to register-subscribe to their fake so-called “Free” iMovie. I tried to register, like 10 times, but Apple’s online system would not accept my registration nor give me a reason as to why my application was not processing. I became very frustrated and wondered what is wrong with this new iPad. Maybe I need to return this iPad and get a replacement. After all, I’d paid for Apple’s 2nd year warranty extension. Hidden deep within Apple’s terms and conditions is a short sentence stating a credit card is required. No where was this requirement included in Apple’s advertise. I don’t and have never used credit cards; I have money and a ATM/Point of Purchase card which I used to purchase the iPad retail. Apple is statically counting on you forgetting to unsubscribe before the 365 day so-called Free trial ends, so Apple can automatically charge you a fee; a dishonest miserly Apple SCAM. Shame on Apple.
Uhm
by Hannah and Harper on 2022/01/09 17:29
So I wanted to make a photo video with my drawings and when I put a picture in then it like moves all around like I can’t make it stop like I put a picture in and the camera moves around the picture it’s annoying please fix it….??
It is really good, but needs more updates
by LetsTacoBoutDis on 2022/01/09 17:11
I have been making the trailers, but there aren’t new ones out, the same ones as last year, and the year before. Overall really good!
Good but slow
by I was never here~~~ on 2022/01/09 16:51
I love this app. It’s great. But there is one thing that should be fixed. It’s super slow. The other day, I took 10 screenshots for what should have been a 30 second video, but instead was like a minute long. Then, just today, I took about 60 screenshots for, again, what sound have been a 4-6 minute video, but instead was a 9-10 minute video. Again, I really love this app and the speed is the only thing that should to be fixed.
Glitch
by ilillililililii on 2022/01/09 04:48
Glitching is real serious.
I like it but I think you can use a few things
by unifjf🥵 on 2022/01/09 00:59
When I first got this app I felt like “ oh I’m so excited play it there’s nothing wrong and I can make unlimited movies as long as I have the storage” but when I found out the door wasn’t cool effects and just trailers I got kind of sad I think I know this is a really fun app but I didn’t really like it because I would kind a wish for like some background effects so I can make myself look like I’m in cool places anyways that was really a nice app and my recommendation is below: I recommend some background images I think you do you some background images and yeah I hope you except my request because I really like it but I think I could use an update by some background images bye! -PuppyDog118
It didn’t even focus on a picture
by 135(: on 2022/01/08 17:53
Ok can’t make a movie at all so please fix it
IMovie was great!
by Loba Fofii on 2022/01/08 17:02
So I liked iMovie for a while. But then I noticed that it doesn;t have many new added songs I don’t like this app too much but the trailer thing’s pretty good

So slow since the update
by Knittyowl on 2022/01/06 18:51
Since the update when I am trying to scroll back-and-forth in my video it freezes and is slow and is non-responsive.
Doesn’t have subtitle
by alexrelax1361 on 2022/01/06 17:22
You can’t add time to title and you can’t subtitle under a video
It’s great but
by Nafnaf03 on 2022/01/06 17:06
I love but it should use some effects like making fire blasting elements something like that

I don’t like this iMovie I like the old is very nice
Ugh so annoying!
by Ananomous 3334 on 2022/01/06 01:22
It works but you literally can’t do anything! If you take a video or photo it crops it and you can’t change that if you are making a trailer that is all I wanted to do! I had a great trailer until the end where it would not work. Otherwise it is ok it is slow and half my old vids that I still have pics, but the movie doesn&#39;t load they don’t work anymore. I have some really cool ones that don’t work. It just annoys me! The app just needs a few updates and would be great! The app works well for making cool things to present and I sometimes use it for school but not always because it makes the pics look weird (depending on the pic). The app is nice to cut things and make them look cool and you can add fonts and make some cool vids and all! So thanks for taking time to read my review! If the makers of the app would just tweak a few things then I would give it a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (5 star rating)!

Useful app
by txy33 on 2022/01/03 02:59
This app is very useful for editing videos. It has many things that could help you record.
YouTube Upload Option Gone
by Dslynch on 2022/01/02 22:34
Great app easy to use. Until it updates... where is the YouTube upload/share function?? Also you want to export or save the video you just spend an hour editing sorry but your storage is full. Oh? I have 50 gig free on my device. Sorry your storage is full. I have to delete this app just to rest the memory along with my edited video. Just a terrible experience the devs won’t change or fix any of these issue. Horrible video editing app not the worst on the app story bc it’s free and does work…just not every time!! Do not download other video editing app that are free then have you pay a weekly fee or have all the basic editing options behind a paywall.
Wonderful
by First comes love on 2022/01/02 22:08
This is a very good app and it’s so good it’s my first time even bothered to do a review. It is the one and only awesome movie app
So so SO GOOD! 😋😆🤪
by Ohio.jones on 2022/01/02 19:30
I’ve made lots of movies and trailers and I’m making my diary into a movie (in progress) which is such a dream come true! Plus, Greg heffley got HIS first diary into a movie. Really 2 movies. My diary is named “Diary of a good kid” since I’m REALLY good on the count I’m 9 years old. AND my name is Jasper an... oops! Back to the part about movies. So yeah, I’ve also made a movie called “The funny’s”, but it got deleted. So, that’s all I wanted to tell you! Bye! :) From: Jasper ;D To: I movie🍿
I have a problem.

So when I try to stretch out an image, it keeps taking me to the beginning of that clip.
Glitches after export
by the bird 81 on 2022/01/02 06:52
Basic app for editing videos. (Using iPhone) However, once exported from iMovie back to my iphone library, there are glitches all through the video almost like it’s lagging behind. All I did was add text to a single frame. Original videos in perfect condition, so not sure what the issue is. Only noticed after uploading videos to YouTube- had to delete videos after wasting hours uploading them only to have to start over. Frustrating.
So simple!
by IheartRoblx on 2022/01/02 02:25
It’s super simple to put an iMovie together! Just move your photos or videos into it and music or filters or titles and boom! 🤯 You put together a movie 🎥 🍿 it is the best video editor ever. Now I use it to edit every video I need edited! Buy it for your own good 😊. I also recommend this for any YouTube creators. 🥰
Decent
by 🦄🦄🦄🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻❤️❤️❤️😂😂😂 on 2022/01/01 19:52
I use it to make trailers and sometimes roblox edits. I just wish you could cut the trailers and there was more audio. Recommend better apps like cap cut, but this is a good start.
Great app!
by jfr13 on 2022/01/01 16:12
I would to say that this app is great, suggestion? I would like to make a commercial like setup?

it’ll be working perfectly fine but out of nowhere it won’t let you add background music from your camera roll, select a video or picture and it’ll start lagging

It&#39;s pretty good, I just don&#39;t really get how to use it. If there was a tutorial or something at the beginning, I didn&#39;t receive it. I think that you should put a &#34;help&#34; button somewhere in the app. All my friends say it&#39;s awesome, but are way to busy to give me help or something. The app could be better.
Can someone help me

Export Issues
by Tsp213 on 2021/12/31 01:50
The editing is fine. It has the features you would expect, nothing more or less. It is somewhat user-friendly. The primary issue is saving or exporting your videos. Once you complete a project, the program often glitches, preventing you from saving the video to ANYTHING. Regardless of how much storage space, the error “Storage Full There is not enough space on this device. You cannot share until you free some space.” I have been able to successfully save one video, but for three others (two of which are smaller) this is the only message that appears regardless of the option (Copy, Save Video, Airdrop, etc). This prevents you from doing anything so the your completed project. Looking at a few forums, this is a known issue that the developer has no interest in fixing. This app is a gamble, so use it at your own risk. Honestly, Movavi is better anyway.
So good 🥳🥳
by CottageCore_Aesthetic11 on 2021/12/30 15:06
So yes! as u see in my caption, it says So good 🥳🥳 And yes it is so good! i definitely recommend this app! it’s great for users like me! i love making little movies and this is the best app made! so i recommend! -CottageCoreAesthetic

Zero stars
by Aurora_The_StarWing on 2021/12/30 02:52
It’s so bad, I want to give you a zero. But I can’t, so I give you, a one.
It’s pretty good.
by Cre8tive_MadDog on 2021/07/28 15:00
I like iMovie. It’s a good and simple editing system that is really fun to use. But, there are a few things that I wish would change. First of all, the space it takes up. I don&#39;t know if there is anything you can do about this, but whenever I record little snippets for a movie, they save to my photos. And I hate that! And to make it worse, when I delete them, I can’t watch that part I filmed in the movie cause I deleted it. And yes, I know. There is something you can do about it. You finish the movie, save to photos, then you can delete all the snippets from your photos. But I wish I didn’t have to do that. I just wish it didn’t add it to my photos in general. Second, the trailers. I wish there was a bit more freedom to the trailers. The app chooses everything for you. You get to pick the topic and everything, but I wish there was more. I don’t like how iMovie chooses the music, how long the clips have to be, and how long the trailer is in the first place. I don’t usually write reviews, but this app deserved one. Other than some of my complaints, this was a really good app. Everything is free and available, there are more editing possibilities, and it looks very professional. Again, if there’s anything you can do about my complaints, I would do it. I feel like these are common complaints and you would get more buyers if you fixed or changed them. Thanks!
I have played it before but I tots love IT###$&@%🍩💓💓
by 123krauss on 2021/11/29 01:54
So I played this game before and I’ve seen it before it’s just for some reason it’s uinstalled I’ve already made some but my two favorites are $###tik###$ and $###tok###$what are I love about this game is usually in some edit games they are ads but none in this game! Those two that I said I made them today and they look really aesthetic and pretty anime so you should really install the game it’s a really good one for animating if you don’t like ads and if your mom doesn’t like paying for stuff lol and how I did it was I got this wallpaper app I took some of the pictures from it and I made it into a little video and it’s really cool and what I like about it is that you can record music which is really great it’s just if there’s sound behind it it sounds super weird so you got to tell like your parents to be quiet or something on the tik one I had to re-record it so many times because my mom was making noise so if everything is really quiet that actually won’t happen on tok I had to do it like twice or like three times It didn’t take long because my mom was in my bedroom and there wasn’t any noise. So you should really get this app it’s a really fun one I’ve had it before and if it’s the uinstalls go onto the App Store find iMovie and just press the cloud with an a little arrow and it will reinstall and everything will be all better and anyways this is really long so it’s OK if you skip to another rate OK bye!!!!!!!
Almost perfect, almost!
by ResSil151 on 2020/05/05 08:44
So. It’s very rare that I leave a review on apps, but this one deserves it. I have been having an absolute blast with this, especially since I’ve really gotten into drone photography and it’s the perfect tool to make for video editing. My favorite feature honestly is making the movie trailers, it’s so fun with a compilation of media. The ONLY issue I have with it is that I’d love more freedom. Once you pick the general theme it predetermines what you can do. It boxes you into a certain amount of clips per section and has a variety of different kinds that you cant control whatsoever. So for example. One section in the trailer would have 3 slots for clips. The first one would be a .9 second, the next one would be a 3 second closeup (which is very annoying since it zooms way in on the picture or video and there’s nothing you can do to adjust it or stop it.) so if it’s a video it could focus in and cut out what you actually want to show in the clip which makes it impossible to use a lot of media. The third one could be 1.5 seconds. The fact that you can’t change the number of possible clips in a section and that you can’t change the duration of any of the clips is very frustrating. But beyond that this is an AMAZING app that I will love using for a long time, definitely worth having to be more strategic on what media I place where.
Won’t allow me to select clip
by Dreamscape82 on 2021/04/27 16:33
With the new update you guys have a bug or something going on. I been using this app for over a year now to edit my videos but with this new update I struggle to select a clip to create. It won’t allow me to select it. I have to repeatedly restart the app to fix this, sometimes even restart my phone. I’ve even tried uninstalling the app and reinstalling it, done that twice so far. Still same issue. This is the worst issue I’ve ran across but there is more. Please fix this issue! This app I would be a five star for me but I can’t give it that with this issue that has been ongoing for about two months now or so. Usually it has a select clip option and highlights blue when it selects the clip But now it highlights a gold looking color when you tap the clip you want and it don’t give the option to select and create movie clip. This is so frustrating I have no idea what you guys did in this new update but this was never a issue until about two months ago. How can I create my movie clips if it’s not giving me the option to select and create the movie? I found the best way past this is tapping the select all option in which will select all videos in that column which can be up to 3 to 5 different recent videos, so I’ve been having to do that then go back through when it creates it into the editing table and delete the clips I did not want. Wow! Can you see how frustrating and time consuming this bug can be!? Very frustrating! Please fix it!
Great, But Here is a Suggestion
by QwQ GamerGirl on 2020/06/28 15:29
Yes, iMovie is a great movie and trailer or film maker, you can make retro trailers/films/movies, romance, teens, family, fairy tale, swashbuckler, expedition, superhero, scary, coming of age, indie, Bollywood, adrenaline, and narrative movies films or trailers. I know, a lot of options 😅. But... There should be an option where you can change the music and where you can have the images and videos you took on iMovie only be stored in the movies on your app, not the gallery. It is a huge waste of space for your device, especially if you make lots of movies/trailers like me. I wish you could make the trailers longer than a minute, and can make it 1-4 minutes at least for trailers. When making a trailer, you can’t hear any talking or sounds just music. Maybe still keep the music, because that is still cool, but make there a setting where you can turn off music and can hear talking and sounds. Still a very great app I recommend, but I am just hoping for an update that will change that and further experience in the update. I hope this is good enough to explain the change I’d be grateful for and to explain to others who might download this app. Please make this change though, if not, it’s fine but thx anyways ☺️
LOVE IT
by happy panacorn on 2020/05/15 22:41
This....is......the......best......editing......software.....I’ve....ever....use. Other editing apps make everything over complicated by making it look all “professional” or “easy”. Some apps make it so you can’t find anything and you have to enter all these strange unhelpful commands while others all you can do is plop the video in, put in a filter, and maybe add some random sounds. But this app is so good! You can do so much with it, it’s super easy, AND if you are willing to spice things up you can put it into pro mode where you can do even more! It’s even better because IT HAS A FRICKING UNDO BUTTON! It’s so helpful if you made a big mistake and you don’t want to have to do it all over again! It also has so many transitions that are so fun to play with along with the funny and awesome sound effects (my favorite it the time travel one) the only thing I have to complained about is that the default transition is fade and so I have to go through my entire video and put it to the standard one witch really annoys me I would also like a *BLEEP* sound effect because it’s so good for humor and if someone says...something... but other than that it’s so good and I don’t understand why it’s only rated 3.9 stars WHEN IT CLEARLY DESERVES A 4.5! soooo yea that’s all I have to say!
I’ve only seen 1080P results on an iPhone 8
by FOFS on 2019/12/05 22:54
As far as I can tell, iMovie works great. I had to do some overlay stuff (PIP) which required me to look up instructions for that online, and I learned a lot about other more “advanced” features as well. Once, during many, many edits of a short video, it did seem to stop working, so I just restarted it. I’m looking forward to adding my own music next to see how that works. It’s super easy once you get the hang of it after searching specific online instructions. I mean, skip the basic feature instructions, they are already very straightforward and more or less intuitive. And what a bargain it is!👍 Meanwhile, those other video editing apps might not even have the some of the features you want, except maybe for an extra charge, and/or vampirize your wallet with regular subscription fees, charge $90 for a one time fee, and end up having you in fetal position shaking like a leaf in a corner somewhere wondering how you, at least temporarily, lost that full, unlocked app you already paid a much better price for that went to a $ubscription plan. If this app crashes on your phone or iPad, I don’t have anything supercalifragilistic to say about that. So far, I have no complaints in that department whatsoever.
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!!
Great app, but some problems ...
by Abcdfam on 2021/10/01 19:42
I have been using this app for 2 years , almost 3. Since I was a new editor, it was kinda new for me and it was a great start. ___________________________________________________________________ Until I started to realize stuff😶.... such as: to much storage or... some of it is downloading from iCloud. It was super annoying but the storage part was mostly my fault. My family had used it on computer which was better on iPad / phone . And I used it on a phone, it had so many more cooler effects ... and using audio is very hard- 🙃 I have to use someone else’s audio since there’s only music ... it was terrible I’m looking at some new editing apps, and.. not going so well . And , the trailers are fun... but I’ve used a lot of them and they get boring sometimes...😕 (I recommend this if you’re new) and once you have mastered it, get a different one. You can still use imove but , this is just my opinion after all ☺️. And I really would love it if you would add green screens or backgrounds to iPad .... so far, I might change editing apps but this is a great app for beginners 🥰 so good luck everyone and I hope you have a good day/night!
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.
This App Changed Me
by Niyomy on 2021/07/25 15:35
Ok so this is a default app on your iPad right? I was bored and I downloaded it. First impression 🤯! Mind Blown it’s completely changed me I got into editing and I make a lot of home movies and sit there for hours just editing! I love it especially how you can split a video, crop, split the audio, green screen, and sooooo much more. Its a great start I’ve been using it for like 1-2 years and it’s amazing! I love all the different options. But I do have a suggestion what if you could add more editing stuff for photos. I meen don’t get me wrong the video editing is great and it’s nice how you can add filters to videos and photos but I only have 3 options with photos, Crop, Filters, and Another thing I can’t remember but that’s pretty much it. Even if you didn’t add more stuff for photos it’s fine it’s still a great app. I just have to take it into another app to edit photos or let it be. P.S. this is just a tip but for the title how it goes through whole clip just split the video where you want to start and end the put in the text and you can click ... and make it full duration or not full duration
Garbage
by MonaLesa54 on 2022/01/14 06:22
This app could be soooo much better. 1) It crops my videos when I upload them without me knowing until the upload is finished. You have to crop the original and guess what is ideal for the app in order to not have important parts cut out. This is annoying when it already takes so long for the app to upload some of the content. 2) It takes forever to upload videos and unable to retrieve larger files above 10min from what I observe. For an iPhone app, these videos should be available off top or some of the features in camera mode should be available (like speeding up the video) in order to make viewing it in iMovie easier. 3) downloads from iCloud take FOREVER… so don’t delete a video from your phone in the process of editing a project or it will frustrate you greatly. 4) SLLLLOOOOWWWW…. Oh my goodness!!!! 5) Always says there’s not enough memory on phone… even though there is. Just fix this already… I’m over it. This is why I have issue with iPhone. I was good until I was reminded of these headaches dealing with creating/editing small videos. These apps should integrate better with the the phone or there is just no point in having them on the phone. Maybe iPhone overall is just slow. I’m starting to rethink this Apple thing. I have a 12 Pro and I’m sure the same issues exist on the 13.
OH MY WORD I LOVE THIS APP!!! 😍😍
by Edog🐶🐶 on 2020/11/28 02:01
Hi everybody! I love the app IMovie. It all started on one Saturday night when my friend was over. I was making a commercial for my fake toy store just for kicks and then my friend asked, “Are you using IMovie?” I had no clue what IMovie was. She said it was an app that you can make trailers and movies on it. The very next day I decided to try out IMovie, sense it was already on my IPad ( for some reason it came on my IPad.) I didn’t know how to work the app, so I just kind of left IMovie alone for awhile. A few days later, I was randomly at my friend’s house. We made a movie trailer on IMovie, but we did’t get to make the movie. That afternoon when I got home, I decided to give IMovie another try because I now understood how to work it after watching my friend use it. From then on, I kept on making trailers. I never do the movies, but I make SO many trailers. I make them with my friends, and my family. It’s so fun to make them and then show them to your family. Overall, I totally recommend this app for making trailers. Thank you for reading, and I hope you try IMovie. God bless you, and stay safe.😊
Not as great as I remember
by juststankylegandmoveon on 2020/05/20 01:53
When I started using iMovie as an beginner’s tool a couple years back, it was very easy to use and understand. Every video I made came out exactly as I edited it, and I could do it for hours on end with no issues. Now, I have moved on to other softwares as I’ve improved, but I came back to this one to use as a base for my more simple clips and audios; plus I already knew how to use it and expected it to be just as easy as I remembered. But, coming back, I notice how it keeps crashing, whether it is a sudden black screen that forces me back to my home screen a second later, or even glitches within the app. For instance, I tried changing the volume of an audio by selecting it—and it split it where I had selected it?? It may sound like a small bug, but it gets very frustrating when it happens over and over again and I have to undo it. It was never like that before. Same issue with clips, sometimes it won’t even let me select one I want to crop or slow down, etc. It forces me to leave the project, the app itself, sometimes even to the point of turning my phone off just to get it running again—just to get it to crash again. I really hope you guys find this and fix even the small issues, iMovie was so brilliant before.

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
it can’t even crop a video.
by nicndhs on 2021/11/21 06:59
This app is horrible. And I mean HORRIBLE. I used to use it to crop videos from the photos app on iphone but one day the option to do that disappeared from the photos app. So i went into the imovie app itself. Trying to crop the video itself was a pain. Trying to crop off just a few seconds took minutes because of lag. Once i was finally able to crop my video (i only needed to crop off around a minute) the change didn’t even save! Well it did. But it wouldn’t let me download or upload my edit at all! It would SHOW me the edit i made when i went to look at the video but when i downloaded the video it just gave me the original uncropped video. So i eventually found a strange work around where it would let me download my cropped video ONLY if i cropped it while selecting it as the video i want to edit. But get this. When i finally downloaded my cropped video it was completely horrendous! There were glitches EVERYWHERE. I swear to god looking at the video for too long would cause a seizure. The screen was constantly shaking and playing between the last few frames and the next making it a completely disoriented mess. Theres no way my file was corrupted because i was literally just trying to crop a screen recording. This app is horrible. Use something else.
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.
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.
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.
Not what I wanted.
by hony bare 2000 on 2021/05/17 16:15
I got iMove because I wanted to make videos but with only using pictures, and I heard this was a good app. But whenever I but in pictures ken burns is ALWAYS ON! It’s annoying. I’ll turn it off, but then I leave from editing it and close the app, and when I go back it’s on again. I turn ken burns off on all the pictures, and crop them to be the size and place I want, but I can’t because they go back to how they originally were. I also don’t like how I can’t shorten the clips to a really short length, the shortest it can go is around a second, I want it to be shorter then a seconds, what if I’m making a fast paced edit with pictures that are only on screen for half a second, I can’t do that. And because I only 11 I can’t buy other editing apps without my parents consent. And they think that this is the best app, and I Should only use this. I think this app would improve if you could add a setting were you can automatically turn ken burns off, and have the photos back to where they should be, size and shape. It should also be cool if you could make it so you could shorten the length of clips even more. Thank you for reading this.
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.
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.
One word- BEST!!!!!
by bluegiraffeHCD on 2021/12/20 04:24
This is pretty much the best app ever. I spend a lot of time using this. I have about 100 movies. Couple complaints: 1: please don’t have pictures closeup. It’s pretty annoying when you make a trailer and you find out when you watch it you have to redo many videos or photos. It would be a lot easier if all the photos/ videos were all the same. 2: in the trailers please make all the videos or photos the same length. I believe about 3 sec would be appropriate for everything. Some suggestions 1: please make more trailer themes. Whenever I make a trailer, it usually has to do with everyday life or fun occasions. Examples: playing outside, a play I was in, vacation to Florida. But all the themes are action themes, mystery themes, and they just don’t fit with my pictures. Please make themes with sweet music and colorful backgrounds. 2: please make more themes for movies as well. Few questions What’s the difference between iMovie project and iMovie theatre? Also how do I use the green screen effect? On iMovie help it said I needed to overlay a video or photo but i have tried and tried but can’t figure out how to do it! Besides those tiny bugs that you can get over with and even get used to, and you would think I would put 3 stars but I use this app every day and it just keeps getting better. I would give it 10 stars and more you can’t get a better app. it’s a really great and I totally recommend it!!!!!!
Barely good enough
by Kazuidae on 2021/07/02 20:30
Now, I’ve never used an actual editing program, like the fancy ones on the computer, but I have seen what they can do. And I can safely say that after using Imovie for many grueling hours trying to edit stuff just for fun, it wasn’t fun at all, it was slow and frustrating. The text feature is weird, why not just make it so you can stretch the text across multiple frames instead of just each individual frame. And more filters would be nice, I wanna feel like I’m editing a video not a picture. If I wanted to do that I’d just open my gallery. Also, I want to be able to overlay gifs on top of a picture, ex: I wanted to overlay a gif onto one of my frames, and it kind of worked, but not in the way I was hoping. Because like I said with the text, I wasn’t able to even stretch it across all my frames, I could only add the gif to each individual frame which was super disappointing. I understand Imovie isn’t some grand editing software, but I primarily do most of my work on my Ipad, and I can’t pay for a good editing software just yet. So I’m just kinda stuck with what I can get, and honestly, I’m gonna try looking for other alternatives. -Not angry, just disappointed.
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! 🙏🏻
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.
⚠️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.
PLEASE FIX THIS
by merry shakouri on 2020/05/01 20:59
I’m not even kidding I was working for hours on Editing my yt vid and I was finally done. I usually watch the whole thing to check if I didn’t everything right. Tell me why every single overlay I took 5 minutes to do each was early. Everything got messed up. I have to redo it now. I was crying for like 20 minutes straight. I’m not even kidding I’m SO MAD. I took time out of studying so I could finish this video. Then iMovie glitches and puts every single over lay that I spent a long time to be perfect, earlier than it should have been. This is not the first time. I’m not gonna keep wasting my time to do a video then this ends up happening. Please fix this problem. Cause I can’t handle it anymore. It’s 5:00 am rn I started editing at 10:00 pm. And everything is messed up. I am so furious. And sad. And every single bad emotion. Hello I’m editing this. The same thing happens again. I finished the video again and the same thing happened. I’m literally about to lose my mind. And I can’t update it then all my progress on other projects will be lost
Overall being ruined by many problems.
by 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.
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!!
Not bad, but it’s missing something...
by Little Workhorse on 2021/03/25 14:50
I have used iMovie ever since I’ve had this iPad. It’s simple, easy to understand, and fun. But there are three thing I would like to see added to give a little bit more control. 1. More control over volume and sound design. Like having the the volume slider plus bass gain and distortion sliders so you can make an audio recording sound vintage, huge, or just plain silly. 2. More control over speed and pitch. The speed control slider is already intuitive, but instead of going to 2x speed, I think it should go up to 8x speed to match 1/8th speed. I would like for a separate pitch control slider because having pitch controlled by speed and vice versa is now feeling a bit limiting. 3. The addition of explosion, gunfire, and engine sound effects and the ability to use tracks from Apple Music. The explosion sound effects can just be regular old explosions, same as gunfire, but both should have a distant and close-up variant. The engine sound effect should be up that of a V8 with muffled and straight-piped variants. You should be able to chose starting rpm, ending rpm and load for each clip. For example, you would add the straight-piped V8 sound effect, choose a 3250 rpm start, a 6500 rpm end, full load. It should sound a lot like an LS, which is technically the most common American V8. Other than that, it’s a really fun app. So, I guess you could keep the controls simple, otherwise, it’s not really iMovie anymore.
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!
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&#39;d think it&#39;d be WAY less glitchy. No matter what I do, the same glitches seem to occur for me over the past years. I&#39;ve been through three different phones, and it&#39;s a bummer because I can&#39;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&#39;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&#39;t seem to fix this or get it to save to my phone differently. It&#39;s really agitating seeing as how it&#39;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
It’s so good!!!
by crystal demon on 2021/08/31 21:08
So I had used iMovie for a year now and it’s so good but a few suggestions #1 can you make a place with movies and trailers with effects it’s would make my Gacha life mini movies better #2 I would like in movies and trailers if you could search your own music instead of having to buy it cause I don’t have the money I’m only 8 pls change that #3 I would like if you could make something where the tiny clips would not save to photos and when I delete them I can’t watch the movie so also pls change that and also actually every clip pls #4 I would in trailers if you could make different backrounds stuff like were your studio name is and the backrounds to it can you add more pls like on my trailer a horse without a rider I couldn’t find a good background so pls add more #5 HAVE FUN AND ENJOY THE GAME!!! I do really recommend getting this game it’s amazing you have all my Regards snow wolf 😍🥰😘😁🤩

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&#39;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!
Brilliant app to use!

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.
Miserly Apple SCAM - Credit Card Required
by Mike Brady 94107 on 2022/01/09 18:53
Apple advertised in print the new iPad included a “Free 1 Year” access to Apple’s iMovie channel with every iPad purchased. That’s nice; but they neglected to say up front that in order to take advantage of this “Free” iMovie offer you must provide Apple with a credit card to register-subscribe to their fake so-called “Free” iMovie. I tried to register, like 10 times, but Apple’s online system would not accept my registration nor give me a reason as to why my application was not processing. I became very frustrated and wondered what is wrong with this new iPad. Maybe I need to return this iPad and get a replacement. After all, I’d paid for Apple’s 2nd year warranty extension. Hidden deep within Apple’s terms and conditions is a short sentence stating a credit card is required. No where was this requirement included in Apple’s advertise. I don’t and have never used credit cards; I have money and a ATM/Point of Purchase card which I used to purchase the iPad retail. Apple is statically counting on you forgetting to unsubscribe before the 365 day so-called Free trial ends, so Apple can automatically charge you a fee; a dishonest miserly Apple SCAM. Shame on Apple.
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 .
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

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.
Good for simple videos
by Professional Hockey Player on 2021/08/12 15:19
If you are just making SIMPLE videos then this app is all you need. However, there are many technical issues or glitches when using. A big one is trying to put text over certain sections of clips, the interface for it does not work the way it should and more than half the time it defaults to the whole clip and there’s nothing you can do to fix it. Another issue I have with it, is you don’t have the option to create an intro or outro. What I’ve found is that you’ll have to use a third party app to create such a thing, save it to your camera roll, and then import it into iMovie if you so choose to continue using this app. I have used it for several videos, and it gets the job done for most, but it is very simplistic. So, my recommendation is that if you are looking to be a content creator, you will want to use better video editing software to really captivate your audience and give the presentation that will bring in and maintain viewers. This app is good for what it is though!
Great possibilities, major memory management flaws
by P. Jones Moody on 2021/01/27 17:17
Generally, it all works very well, but there are some issues that remain unresolved: 1) Memory usage, especially when exporting the final product. There seems to be a hidden memory cache that doesn’t get wiped as often as needed. I have often run into issues with the app telling me there is not enough memory to share the project, after it has already “processed” a significant chunk of it, even though Settings tells me I have over 200GB of device memory available. My remedy: (a) every time I start a new project, I delete all existing projects in the iMovie app, then delete the iMovie app itself, then reboot the iPad, then re-download the app, and then begin the project. (2) factory reset my iPad when that method fails (which is approximately every other month) 2) Audio/Video synchronization and waveform inconsistencies. Sometimes when editing clips, the audio waveform jumps ahead or behind, although the audio itself *sounds correct* while still editing. Sometimes, after the final export, certain clips have audio that is shifted ahead or behind the video by a significant margin.
Great place to start, but terrible to continue.

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.
