It’s great but it’s soooo laggy
by asianiammmm59 on 2021/05/16 03:39
I literally have to click the screen 3/4 times just to get the split/delete option to pop up. Then when I trim the video it takes forever to update. Then the music is always out of sync. And then as of recently the music won’t play as I edit but it will once I save the video (kinda useless since I can’t hear what part of the song I’m putting over the video).

Can’t start a project
by MANINIMO on 2021/05/15 04:12
Just downloaded the app, got a 7 week trial, and the plus sign to start a project on the very first screen doesn’t even work. Restarted the app several times. Looks like it has potential but this is a ridiculous flaw. To be clear, my screen is intact and every other button works except the most important one. Very disappointing

Trying to sell the PREMIUM version by “force”
by andraradu on 2021/05/15 01:45
I am not able saving my videos as for some reason I turn out using premium features, which I AM NOT, but this way they “force” me to choose the premium and pay more. Which I am already payment $50 per year! Otherwise I worked in wain to my video! Is very frustrating. Is unprofessional and the support will not give me any indications about what what exact premium feature was I selected that I can not save my video. I will cancel it!

Absolutely great aside for a couple of minor inconveniences!
by DynamiteAustenite on 2019/06/20 00:00
I am absolutely LOVING all of the new features, especially the fact that I can now use the text to make subtitles!! The design is sleek and modern, the view screen is bigger, there are more sound effects, I can crop it down to square size for Instagram, etc. I’m loving it! My only issues thus far have been with editing the music. I’m working on my big ‘ol iPad, yet I nonetheless have a reeeeeeeally hard time finding the hit box for the slide bar that’s supposed to help me “crop” the music. I end up just awkwardly moving it to the side instead of shortening or lengthening the clip, and it gets very frustrating. I had to get out my Apple Pencil in order to get the job done. The other thing I’m struggling with is that, with my projects, I usually work with small music segments. In the most recent one, I’m using only five seconds of the provided music. To do that, I unfortunately have to go aaaaaaaaall the way to the end of the video and drag it down to size little by little. Then again, I’m not sure if that’s because this app was made for bigger videos. Thus far, those are the only things I would change! This app is the greatest video editing app I’ve found up to date. I’ve been using it for about two years now. Thank you so much for providing this app!
Great features especially to animate photos except for music
by 07Raven on 2020/04/17 23:06
I especially liked using the Ken Burns effect on still photos which worked much, much better - is far more versatile - and easier than its counterpart in iMovie. It’s relatively also easy to splice film clips together, too. Biggest complaint with upgrades made since summer 2019 is the loss of some of the holiday music (I had a hard time doing holiday video last Christmas) and other suitable music to use, and the loss of the feature which let you splice the free music together easily with fade-out options available at beginning and end. Also, most music supplied is too short (less than a minute) - my videos typically are 1-1/2 to 2-3/4 minutes in length. I now rarely use Splice’s music and have to import video clips I do here into iMovie or some other program to finish. Other complaint is not having special features with how text or titles displays such as the ability to have letters dropping down, or fading in and out, etc., like text features available on iMovie. However, I do like the colored text/type choices which can make text much easier to read on bright backgrounds. I also like the ease in selecting aspect ratio although it is limited to only 3 choices. Overall this is a nice, fairly easy to use editing package. I use it the most for animating static photos so they zoom in or out, move from side to side or even - on rare occasion - rotate, which is especially cool if done right.
Nearly perfect video editor!
by scotty321 on 2019/06/29 08:24
This is a pretty amazing professional video editing app that has many of the features that you would expect from a professional video editing app! Even better, the app is so intuitive and so easy to use that you will feel like you are an expert of this app within just a few minutes of using it! It’s truly amazing! There is simply no comparison between this app and Apple’s iMovie. However, it could use a few small improvements, including more responsive technical support. We sent a few emails to technical support 4 or 5 days ago, and still haven’t heard back from them yet. Furthermore, the program makes some things more difficult than they need to be — for example, when you insert text onto a video clip, it ALWAYS makes the length of the text the ENTIRE LENGTH OF YOUR VIDEO CLIP with no quick way to change it. Other video editing apps insert text at just 5 seconds, and then you can quickly change it from there. There is also no way to pull the audio from a video clip and just use that audio as a narration track for other video clips. We also have continual difficulty trying to trim the end of a video clip by dragging the end of the video — this app often things that we are trying to MOVE the video clip. (We end up splitting and deleting to prevent this from happening.) Hopefully the team behind this app is listening and will continue to improve this app! It’s already an excellent app! :)
Easy and fun to use
by Aaron Zorzi on 2021/04/29 15:38
It imports my media quickly (even large video files that are over a GB) and exports my finished videos just as fast, even when I choose 4K definition. I love the option to quickly export in different quality sizes and how it shows pretty accurate estimates of the final file size, as I often need several copies of my videos to fit the size limits of various sites I post on. The interface is very user friendly and there is an awesome array of effects, transitions, filters, etc. that has allowed me to make some pretty stellar music videos that others really enjoy. I’m happy with this app! I did experience one bug however. When I was doing some pretty meticulous audio clip editing for my one video, I had a glitch where one particular piece of audio kept playing whenever I went to preview/play what I had so far. It would overlay all the other audio even tho I had deleted that clip and when I exported it, it went away. So it only existed in the editing screen. It wasn’t a huge deal, but it did make it a bit annoying to continue editing because I couldn’t hear the actual audio over the bugged audio no matter where I was in the editing process. Only happened once and hasn’t happened again — but wanted to make the developers aware. Thanks for the awesome app!
Thank you, Splice!
by So and So zzzzzc on 2019/08/08 01:57
I’ve had Splice for three years, and I can say with certainty that this is an amazing movie/video making app. It is so easy to choose the pictures and videos you want and arrange them. There are a good number of transitions as well, and if you choose to use Ken Burns on your pictures, you can select the start and finish positions. I also enjoy the ability to trim videos in the app instead of having to trim them in Photos. You can also apply filters to videos and pictures in the app, as well as add text. The sleek design and user-friendliness only add to the appeal. But of course, easily one of the best things about Splice is the audio options. To start, there is a HUGE selection of music and the option to fade in and out. You can play as many tracks at a time as you want and precisely edit how long you want the music to play. On top of this, you can also record audio for voiceovers and narration, which is great for making stop-motion movies. I have used Splice on multiple projects and it has yet to disappoint me. The best part is that it is FREE! I know that there is an extension, but even without it, this app is truly amazing. Thank you, Splice!
The tiniest bug literally makes the app unusable.
by MyNameIsMyNameBro on 2020/02/19 13:28
Compared to all the other editing apps on the market for IPhones, this one was seemingly the best editing app BY FAR in terms of subscription pricing and efficiency. The app never crashed, the layout is very simple to understand, and it’s easy to get the hang of...but there’s a bug that literally made me go back to my original review and lower the amount of stars I gave it from 5 to 2. I’ve only been using this app for a couple of hours and I began to edit pretty large media files on it. Everything was going perfectly well and I was happy, but I soon realized that what I thought was my mistake was a bigger problem than it appeared to be. Whenever I add an audio clip over a video clip, the audio clip just remains at 100% volume no matter what I do and it’s so frustrating because there’s no reason why it should be doing that. I’ve checked that I lowered the volume, I’ve deleted the audio clip and replaced it, and still the audio was at 100% blasting volume, completely ruining hours of hard work. I can’t add in background music because of it. It’s so annoying because I spent so much time perfecting every little detail of the video but when I went to add in music or sound, there was nothing I could do. It’s very disappointing because this app is great and I really like it, but I’m definitely going to cancel my subscription after I finish writing this review.
Please fix!
by PxBerry on 2020/03/11 00:48
I love Splice and everything about it, but there’s a problem with it. Maybe this might be my iPad or something to do with settings but if there’s anything you can do please take action - I was going all well with my animations that took hours to make individually. All of a sudden it said that Splice needed access to my photos (which I gave access to AAAAGEES ago). It said that the footage in my videos needed to be restored because somehow it got deleted but I checked multiple times that the footage I had in the videos was the exact same, and it was in my camera roll for certain. I deleted splice and downloaded it again, hoping it would do something. Now, my animations are gone, I don’t have access to premium features and it is still asking for access to my photos. I went to settings, went to splice but there was no button for ‘allowing access to photos’. This happened to all of my apps. I’m really devastated that this happened to Ibis Paint X because 2 years worth of drawings are gone so I can’t see my progress. I completely understand if this is an issue that you have no control over and if it is just my iPad or setting malfunctioning, but if there’s anything you can do/ anything I could do to solve this, PLEASE let me know! Thank you. (But when this is fixed I will continue using your amazing app!)
It’s great, but I do miss the old version
by kokokokoalaman on 2019/06/24 04:48
As one of your previous users of the app, I quite liked the older version. It was simple and easy to use, especially for someone that doesn’t really like to put too much time and effort into figuring out how to simply adjust the crop of the video and all. In the old one, everything was easy to figure out, but all of these new features and this new format is a bit overwhelming. I mean, I swear I’m not as lazy as I sound, but the simplicity of the last version and its ability to still make high quality videos were probably the greatest things I loved about the app. Don’t get me wrong, I love all of the new features and effects, but I also wish it was easier to maneuver around the app and whatnot. Maybe it’s just because I’m used to the old version, but maybe it isn’t ??? Also, I wish you guys would add a feature where you could detach audio from one video and put it under another. I can’t seem to figure out how to do that with this app, but I was able to do it with iMovie when iMovie was free a long time ago, so it would be cool if you add that feature. I soooo love your app though and will continue to use it because it’s still by far the best app I can find for video editing that’s free.
HOLYYYYYY😻😻
by Lani👑❤️ on 2017/11/24 07:29
I just got this app a couple of hours ago and I rlly want to become a YouTuber and I was looking for apps to edit my videos but iMovie I need to pay for a lot of things and it was just too much. So I was looking for apps and found this......OMG it is the best and I just tried it right now, the music choice is great the transitions are great and the way u can put a filter on ur pictures and right whatever u wanna right and u have a choice of what font u want. I personally might use this a lot it’s a really easy quick way to edit a couple of pictures and turn it into a nice video and I made my first video like 6 min ago and it turned out so good. Everything is so easy to understand and use and that makes this app AMAZING. Anyone who likes to edit!!!, I suggest u get this app it is also free so u don’t have to pay to get this app and I love it already❤️keep it up guys! The only thing I would suggest is if u could put in music with the actually people singing and music that is in trend! But other than that this is a great app and I’m loving it a lot!!! Thank you guys for making this app simple, fun, cool, and quick, with many options (for free) and easy to make a really good video!!
Sis has glowed up! Easy, free, and fun to use!

This new and improved update/ version of splice is so much better! It’s way different from the last version but in a good way. I’m still trying to get used to it but so far is a BIG, FAT, thumbs 👍🏼 up 👆🏼. And I really like the layout out of it. The only thing is that the way you add text is kinda messed up. Whenever I try to add text or a title it allways adds a extra little clip to the front and I can’t find a way to remove it. But overall, this app is really good. I really recommend this app and personally I think it the best mobile editing app out there. Believe me, I’ve basically tried all the editing apps there is and all of them haven’t really “clicked” for me I guess. this one is really easy to use and always has been. Unlike the other editing apps, this app doesn’t need you to put any information of yours like your email and snap chat or stuff like that. Some of the apps I have tried before in the past have only let you use it unless you had like a snap chat or something and that’s really annoying!!! Like I have to get an app to use another app???? But anyways, I really like this app.
What’s not to love with Splice?
by newsknapp on 2021/04/20 05:58
Splice is so incredibly cool. As a long time TV news professional, working with top editors at network level, and in stations in major markets, I have an immense appreciation for editing, which creates the magic of video. I have and do use Final Cut Pro X, v.2. But when shooting video on my iPhone I prefer the simplicity and speed with which I can get video edited and online. Clean, quick, solid stuff. When I first wrote about Splice months ago, I wanted more features, but doubted single timeline editing could provide it. Now Splice has cleverly created other ways for me to use sound from one bit of video with the natural sound that is tied to the main video I’m editing. Until recently, I couldn’t separate video and sound, but in fact I now can by lifting sound and moving it around beneath another. This sounds more complex than it actually is. Overall, Splice is simply brilliant. And really, I learned quickly how to use it, intuitively. Just by trying it. Now there are tons of tutorials and it’s easier than ever. With continued development I think Splice could replace more complex editing systems. TV news is going to love it.
3 stars because it used to be so great / 5 because it’s perfect now
by EA1982 on 2020/04/10 00:10
Updating this review because all the former issues were fixed. Great app, love it! Former review: The old version of splice was perfect, this new one is expensive, glitchy and minimalist to a fault. Here’s the glitch I encountered: I tried creating a video on my husband’s phone and it never would export, I kept getting a notice saying “uh oh! Something went wrong! Try again?” And after 3-4 tries I gave up. so I had to transfer all the videos to my phone and remake it and finally it exported. The lack of buttons and options is actually very confusing. It looks sharp but isn’t super functional. As to the expense, $104 a year is kind of pricy and there aren’t lower levels for those of us who use the app less often than once a week. It was a great app before the update and I would have been willing to pay a lower usage tier to continue to access it. It’s probably still a great app if you make videos professionally several times a day, but if you’re just an average person making like 1-3 videos a month or less, this app is no longer for you (or me).
Best Editor on the App Store
by #mcswagedyswagswagswag on 2019/12/16 10:47
I love Splice. I’ve been using it for about a year, and I’m loving all the improvements they’ve been making. I remember the old version where I could see the sound waves for any audio I picked out (back when you could only use music available on the app or bought in iTunes... a worthy trade off imo). I don’t know when the update that requires payment for colored text backgrounds came out, but I do know I never had to pay for it previously. I didn’t have to until I upgraded my phone and had to download Splice again. For some reason, I think the devs graciously allowed me to use the paid upgrade for free because I’ve been using it for a long time... and I am very glad they did :) Thank You so much! Unfortunately, I haven’t connected any money to my account yet, so I don’t think I’ll be able to purchase the upgrade for a while. Hopefully it’ll be soon, but until then, thank you devs for continuing to make this app better and better. It never crashes like it used to, and I can do all kinds of neat stuff for free (more than any other app I’ve seen), and even more once I buy the upgrade!
Back to its former glory
by PrivateDaveT on 2020/04/13 17:11
This is a follow up on my last review: This app is now the best video editing app in the App Store with a well deserved 5 stars. Here’s why: I am so happy that the new version brought back the tools that had been removed and even added more features including: Transitions such as Fade to black, Blur, Crossfade, Zoom In, zoom out, etc. Default settings controls are back: Picture duration, transition duration, aspect ratio, background color and music can now be set all at once (as opposed to doing one by one). You can adjust the sound in the videos for instance: you could lower or mute the volume in a video if you don’t want it to interfere with the background music. Perhaps my favorite new tool that has been added is that you are now able to extract the audio of a video and move it around, this is very helpful when you want to add picture overlays over video without messing up the sound sequence. I love the simplicity of the apps interface and the layout of editing tools is very easy to use. I’d like to thank the developers for providing such a great useful app for free for creators like me.
Hands Down The Best Video Editing App for IPhone
by LazyListener1944 on 2021/01/26 14:17
I have the subscription version and originally intended to use it for a couple of weeks and go back to lugging my laptop for edits but ended up sticking with it. There are no gimmick features with this app. All the features work to the extent you expect from a professional desktop app yet it’s still intuitive and fast to use. I love that you can control the output quality, and now that they have added layers and masking, the possibilities have multiplied. I also see they announced the upcoming release of a key frames feature which will, again, multiply the possibilities. The pre-set transitions are also notably better than I have found in most apps. The only thing that frustrates me at the moment is that the effects you layer over your video (essentially dynamic filters) and masks, don’t benefit from allowing you to fade those effects in or out so you really have to hide the start and finish in a transition. However, It sounds like the key frames feature might help solve that if it can be applied to the top layer. Don’t know how I lived without this app!
Quite Useful
by A Truthul Reviewer on 2019/06/29 18:20
I was scrolling through the App Store looking for a video editor that allowed me to piece together pictures into my own video. When I stumbled across this, I was a bit scared to try it out. Never the less, I downloaded it and gave it a shot. This app had everything I was looking for. I could piece together pictures as I created subtitles and tweaked how long it would be. Not only can photos be put together, but videos as well. You can also add sound effects, background music, and almost whatever noise you need to add that little something to your video. I did come across an issue with the subtitles where they don’t change the length at the same time as the photo or video, so you will have to do that yourself, but that isn’t a huge issue. I do wish the transitions between videos and/or photos were quicker, but overall this is a great app to use. It’s compatible with other editing apps, so if you want different transitions, subtitles or sounds, just download what you have so far to your device and input it into a different app. All in all, if your looking for an app that’ll allow you to do all of the above, I would suggest none other than Splice.
Wow! New Design way More Efficient
by Fotosynthesis333 on 2019/11/12 06:09
The time it took me to create a video is now cut in half. I made a 3 minute video a few days ago using the older version and it took me 8 hours. Tonight I made another 3 minute video and it took me about 4 hours. I use a combination of videos and images. The efficiency of an app is always half my battle. The only issue I had using the new version, which was also an issue with the old version is freezing. In the 4 hours that I was on the app, it froze 3 times. Just a minor annoyance. I usually just close the app and reopen it. It’s pretty good at preserving my work. I’ve never lost edits or a project even when it freezes and I have to close out the app. I also like that I can do a lot of my editing and preview edits in the same window. Adding music and SPX and editing these layers is so much easier now with the slide bar feature. I will update this review later after I’ve used the new version a few more times. For now, this is my primary app because It preserves the full size of my images. Other apps I use are to restrictive with image sizes.
Great for any level
by AgentMelly on 2021/03/14 20:21
I have zero knowledge behind video editing, other than trying to find a user friendly app. I’ve used this app on and off for a long time and recently “came back” after I noticed a lot of updates that made it even more user friendly. It is great for super simple editing as well as getting down and fancy with it. One gripe: One thing that does make me still look around for other options is that - part of why I use this app is to transcribe(text) paranormal EVP’s onto the video for the audience. Having to pull the text all the way from the beginning and from the ending - all the way to where I need that text for that couple of seconds takes longer than reviewing the EVP’s themselves. This is a tedious process that really seems like there would be an easier way to put the text where I need it, and be able to move along. It really is a slllooowwwwwwwwww process and this is the part I actually hate (yes, hate; I’m sorry...) about doing it. Other than that I really do love using this app. I just work through that annoying process, because I love the app.
Great app
by lucypotter05 on 2019/05/15 21:36
It’s a great app I’ve been looking for something I can make edits for Instagram on that’s free and this is the one it’s amazing I recommend this to anyone who needs something for pictures to video editing cuz it’s great you can use your own music and your own pics and it’s free what else could you want the transition selection is a little small but I don’t mind for how good it turned out I’m gonna recommend this to my sister who also makes edit but ever since I got an iPhone I can’t transfer vids from my laptop so all my edits can’t be posted but this allows me to make save and post easily, edit: I've been using is for over a year now and i must say its my holy grail for editing apps this is the only one i use, i would like if there was more transportations and if u could make the pics or video less the a second long becuz i am still an editer amd some music beats are less then a second long so that would be cool it would be so cool if it had effects like a glitch and like effects kinda like the app crazy video maker 2 those are awesome but i sadly can't use that app
Just Advertising
by kemi Emi on 2020/04/12 19:57
I had Splice on my phone and remember being able to edit videos without needing a subscription. However, when I downloaded it again, it would let me edit any videos or even get to the editing screen without first bringing me to the subscription offer. If I clicked out of it, it would take me back to the video selection and I wouldn’t get anywhere. It wasn’t like I chose premium/subscription exclusive features or settings that could cause me to get the pop up. The app was physically unserviceable entirely. I don’t have a need for the benefits of the subscription because I don’t edit videos unless to remove certain parts of a clip or maybe screen recording. It’s fine to have pop ups. I don’t care about them. But if I’m literally unable to even access the main purpose of the app without a subscription, you’d be better off asking for money up-front or mentioning that the app is meant to solely be subscription based. The experience was very annoying to say the least and I hope it’s something that’s dealt with. The user interface is not hard to comprehend and is suitable for smaller purposes but the main reason I’m making this review, is because other parts of the app need adjustment and overview.
Has some issues
by Valicorn 🦄 on 2019/06/19 03:07
For some time I've been looking for a free app to make gacha videos and just regular videos. I was pretty excited when I saw this app that could work with my device. I decided to test it out by just trying to combine some short videos and adding some music and text to it. All went really smoothly and I really enjoyed it. The only thing that bothered me was that the video itself seemed to be really glitchy and kept stopping and going. I didn't think much of it and thought that I needed to adjust the speed of the video. I did just that but the glitchy quality didn't change. I deleted that project and decided to make a slideshow. At first everything was exported and everything was fine. Then I played it and it only showed the first clip and the rest of it was just a black screen. I tried again by deleting the project and exporting the files again. Then no matter how much I tried it kept telling me that something went wrong. Even though that's an issue that I had the first time I used Splice I was really impressed with how simple it was to use and the amazing choices of music it had. I hope you don't take this as "hate" but I still hope you look into this issue, thank you and have a great day!
Good for doing anything u wanna do
by HarryPokemonYT on 2020/09/30 11:48
I’ve been using this for everything from short memes to long YT videos. It also has a whole lot of features including (for free) no watermark, sound effects, cutting and deleting parts of text you don’t want, text to put into the video, voice overs, volume, speed, filters, different s saturation and sharpness stuff like that, cropping, flipping the video or image left right up or down, getting a background (not sure what this does), switching media from one video to a different one or duplicating anything that’s already there. (For premium) animation, effects, and music which can be from iTunes or imported. But if u don’t want to pay for the music if you have a second device just play music and hit the voiceover button to record the music. Also right now the app closes but saves most of what you did. But anyway that’s my review of this app I think it’s great and u should use it. If you’re looking for an example of the editing u can go to my channel on YT called “Harry Pokemon” I would appreciate it if u checked it out :).
Awesome not a problem at all!
by Chris-P15521 on 2021/01/30 15:51
The lessons are you people out there who say it’s hard to find disinfectant that affect well no that’s not true it’s easy to find all the effects you just got a pick a few pictures or videos or whatever and then see these little sound effects and different affects you just press on and then you can choose whatever music you want you can choose whatever you want it’s that simple well you people say there’s something wrong with splits or something you are all wrong and are you people out there who did good reviews good job because there should be all good reviews and when I read reviews I saw a few bad reviews so I decided to download the app myself and guess what it was perfectly fine there’s nothing wrong with it so whoever said it was bad and whoever people said it’s bad and all the people who that is that you’re all wrong and I am very disappointed in the people who made bad reviews on this and I am very proud of the people who made good reviews on this and yes if you’re asking yes I am a kid!-kristen
Disappointed
by Lenzdizzy on 2020/02/21 20:12
This app is awesome when it comes to editing, adding music, etc. really. It’s amazing. The reason I’ve given this app two stars is because, it was a waste of time. I’ve tried to save my video a million times. Only for it to say “oh no! Retry.” I assumed maybe I didn’t have enough room. I deleted the pictures off my phone. & my whole video was gone when I came back to the app. I blamed myself for just not thinking. Today, I retried. I remade the whole video. Tried to save. Still “oh no! Retry!” This time I deleted a couple apps. It was gonna let me save. Sooooooooo, I hit SAVE VIDEO. it “saved” except I can’t find it on my phone anywhere. I go back, it says I need to subscribe. I’m thinking “screw it. This is important, so I’ll do it.” This time I hit SHARE VIDEO. It gave me another option through that to save to my phone. I tried again. NOPE. “OH NO! Retry!” I shortened the video, deleted numerous things. Still NO luck. I thought maybe the video saved to the app. So, as a last resort, I deleted the pictures I used from my phone. AND NOW THE WHOLE VIDEO (that was “saved”) IS COMPLETELY GONE. Absolutely a WASTE of time. I loved everything about this app & loved loved loved the video I made so much. Too bad I can share my video with who it was intended for.
Update ruined the app
by maple79vt on 2020/05/14 14:45
Update: More stuff added to the app so it doesn’t work again! I use this app daily (unfortunately) with increased frustration. Don’t waste your money. I’ve used the app for several months now on a daily basis. I never had any issues until I logged in one day and every single video I had done was now saying the images were no longer available. Contacted the developer who immediately tried to place the blame on me saying I deleted the images off my phone. Not the case at all. Turns out I needed to do their update in order to use app. I did this and all video images returned. They shouldn’t be so quick to blame the customer for problems they create. Now, this upgrade destroyed the app. I’ve spent hours on a project only to have my work disappear. I’ve been trying to upload a video multiple times now but when I go to view it in my photos it is not there! I’d contact the developer but I know that they’ll only blame me again for an issue that they created. Again, they updated the app and messed it all up. Again they placed blame on me. I only continue to use the app daily because I paid for the year. Once that year is up I’m dumping it.
Wish I hadn’t updated
by Michi IzkurEreshkigal on 2019/10/26 04:55
Previous review: (5 Stars) Absolutely amazing, from the moment I opened the app I was given text boxes that explained what was what. There is also a huge “how to” FAQ section which was helpful. The microphone records really clearly. The only thing I wish they had was a rotate feature but it said they are working on it. I tried two video editing apps before this and got so *incredibly frustrated* because they weren’t intuitive, and barely had directions. This one definitely is easy to use for a newbie with no experience like me. Update: I haven’t had to use this app for awhile but I just did tonight for the first time since the update. The update took away so many features and became unintuitive and has no detailed “how to” section that I can find. The app use to be so incredibly versatile helping me make decent videos with no experience. Now? My videos aren’t anything like before. The only new thing I like is the way the crop feature works. I’d outline things but a few reviews already have. Heck I couldn’t even drag text correctly without accidentally hitting the exit project button. Feels like every other video editor in the app store now. I’ll probably have to find another one.
Help Please! (Thanks for the response, the app works now)
by LolNiftyLal on 2020/02/10 20:46
The whole app is pretty cool, polished, and everything, but there’s one problem, a really bad problem, I just can’t find it in my gallery, I went to the Gallery app and its not there, I went to the Camera app and its not there. This began happening when I merged a few videos and tried to save them. I put it to 60 FPS, and on 1080p, I waited about 7 minutes for it to save, then it said something along these lines: “Successfully Exported”. I pressed done, then checked my gallery, and its not there. If you don't reply, and the app is still unusable, then I’m canceling my subscription and downloading another app just like this one. Please reply, please reply, please reply, please reply, please reply, please reply, please reply, (I’m not a bot, I’m just supposed to have uploaded a video but I’m late now). Anyway, please help me with this problem, update the app, or I'll cancel my subscription. Have a good rest of your day. Edit: don't worry, it’s all fixed now, it just needed a quick restart.
Good base but much more potential
by skamllew on 2021/04/28 12:43
It would be amazing if you could highlight multiple clips/ sound clips at a time because as it stands if you want to move multiple clips and keep them in the same order, you face the tedious task of moving them one by one, and on top of that you have to try and synch everything with the music again. Right now the best way to do this is to save the whole project, and then create a new project so all of the clips are together already as one video. Another complaint is the sound effects library. It would be great if you were able to import sounds or if they partnered with and app or website with an array of sounds to use. Another thing that is hard to get around is doing text effects and making text/ pictures move during the video. Also it would be cool if they added more effects or added away you could import effects (anime speed lines and such). But overall this app is fun to use and it doesn’t take long to learn at all, if you get a little creative the aforementioned problems won’t cause you too much grief.
Don’t like the new format—but my problem is solved
by there.is.none.available! on 2019/08/26 00:21
Okay, I upped rating to four stars because I managed to figure out the new way to cut part of the video, but it always feels like I accessed the hidden edit bottom section by accident, there is no icon to make it appear, I just kind of hold my stylus down on it. NOTE—Developer was nice enough to send me an email and said that all you have to do is tap on the timeline, which explains why it eventually comes up when I tap on different areas. I still think this new version is a little too streamlined but I do appreciate the response. Original review: I absolutely loved Splice. It was intuitive, and I appreciated that you could use it for free to do basic video editing. I usually only use it to cut out part of a video, or to connect videos together. With this new version I could barely figure out how to cut out half of my video. There is no longer an edit window, or a cut choice. I managed to get it done by splitting the video, then dragged the part right after the split down to a trash icon and it worked. Ridiculous way to have to do it though.
Good but has its downs
by Gabrizs on 2020/01/20 22:29
This app has many great features such as text and zoom in animation. One feature I find it is missing is adding picture over video (a feature I need quite often). The layout of the app is quite simple and easy to navigate which makes it easier to use. Some other negatives would be of course the price of $2.99 a week. For me personally I’m okay with it right now because I don’t make videos frequent enough where the price becomes a problem, but eventually it will be for me. Another problem I face with this app is when I am exporting my video and it says it has “successfully exported” to my camera roll, but it does not. I would have to repeat the very long process about 3 times until it actually does. It becomes a problem especially with long videos taking more time to “process.” With all that being said it’s an okay app with a lot of good features and it’s pretty easy to use, besides the exporting problems. For the price point I would most likely not recommend it since I do have to use multiple apps to finished a video since this app is missing some features and problems with exporting doesn’t match its high price point.
Uh what?!!
by Tatum Shearer on 2019/06/13 18:56
Me and my friend have been using this app for OVER TWO YEARS and then it deleted all of our projects and started over. We will never be able to see those again and this makes me super mad! Please give me a link to the old splice so I can retrieve and download my videos, which were more than 30+ of them and I worked for countless hours on them. I also worked FIVE WEEKS on a project that was supposed to be a present for my little sisters birthday, and it just deleted all my projects the day before! So freakin annoyed 😒. I hate how this turned out. Me and my friends and family have been using Splice forever. The actual update in general is fine, but I hate how you guys deleted all my videos! Couldn’t you have saved the previous videos but updated the rest of them!? I am beyond outraged and I really want to have my videos turned back here. Please hear me out by saying this app is amazing and I love what you guys have done with it! But deleting all the videos I’ve had for two years is making me want to complain more and more. Seriously. Hopefully, you see this or else I just spent 5 minutes of my time writing something that is going to waste, just like my videos .
I HAVE HAD THIS APP FOR AGES, BUT THEY’VE MESSED IT UP
by BeautifulForgotten_Mess on 2019/06/23 00:21
Hello fellow splicers! I have had splice for a good year now, and have absolutely loved it. It has been everything I could have imagined. Usually you would find a free video editing app on your google play or App Store, and they would all have a secret catch to them..right? Whether hey made you play monthly, and get “premium” to use advanced things, splice was NOT one of those. It super quick and easy to use. I could crop and video, or trim and cut it. I could apply sound to it, or record my own. I could change the speed of my video, or the resolution. INCLUDING the ken burns and zoom ins. I could put filters on them and EVERYTHING. But ever since this new update came out, this splice, has NOT ever been this different. Everything about it is so messed up, and not what I’m used to doing. It all jumbled up. I even looked at instructions, and STILL couldn’t figure how to use the new update. The only thing they added were add ons, ones that you would fine in your amazing iMovie app. But that STILL didn’t help!! Get this app if you wish, but I recommend you stand cautious to the new update. It’s pretty whacky, and I’m hoping they change it back. Happy splicing:D
Fun app
by BeccaS601 on 2017/11/28 16:27
Great for what I use it for. (Silly and funny vine type videos) It has certain other features I do not use because to be 100% honest I don't exactly know HOW to properly use them. However, for what I use it for this app works great and I very much enjoy using it. After a long period of working with this app I'm updating my previous review.. I've taken off a star because this app crashes numerous times on me during editing. It kicks me out, and I have to reopen the app and go all the way back to find the exact spot I was editing. It doesn't just do it every now and then when I'm using it. It crashes EVERY TIME I'm working on ANY project, and it doesn't just crash once. The longer I'm working on a project the more it crashes. I am leaving three stars because I still feel this is the best and easiest app I've ever used for editing videos and making projects of all kinds. I would give a star back if only all of the annoying bug issues were fixed and the app was updated so it would stop crashing and kicking me out every other five minutes while I'm working on my projects! Please fix this issue!!
I would like to amend my previous review
by TheCamRes on 2020/01/04 05:09
I’ll start by apologizing for how abrasive my previous review seemed. I’m a very critical person, not intending to being overtly rude. Upon a version update, a couple of issues I was having have been resolved. Including music tracks being restored. That being said, I still stand by my review of the price issue. Personally I don’t mind paying for a software if that software is worth the money to pay for it. Further, I have a request/suggestion. If you are going to charge a subscription, would it not make more sense to charge by the month versus by the week? It’s bad enough that EVERYTHING in people’s lives is turning into a subscription, I can imagine that nobody wants to see a recurring bill on their bank statements every 7 days, 52 times every year. Or at least give people the option to choose weekly (If the plan on using “premium” features once or twice then deleting), monthly and yearly for more consistent use. Just saying. I know this is a business. Everyone wants to make money. But you can do better than this and you know it.
Amazing for compiling photos
by keyboard spam on 2019/09/04 03:11
God, where to start! I’ve had this app for about a year now and it works amazingly well for being free. I used to use IMovie, but this one had the option to A) mass disable ken burns, and B) set a standardized time for the photos. In the more recent update, that went away, though and now I have to go through and set the times for all my photos by hand. I still love this App though. I like that you can disable the splice logo at the end, most companies would have made you pay to be able to do that. The creators are always happy to help and the help feature does an amazing job of showing how things work. Summary: amazing app, great creators, only complaint is you can’t set a standard time. Edit: recent update really messed everything up. I understand that you need to make a product by making this app, but a lot of the features that I liked were taken out... it's a lot harder to set up photo compilations, and at this point, IMovie is less buggy...
I love this app buuut...
by Mercy E. on 2019/10/08 23:09
Splice is the only video editing app I use on my phone and I plan to keep it that way. I downloaded 3 editing apps and 2 of them kept asking me to pay money before I even got to *look* at the screen, except 1 of them. That app was Splice and I don’t regret ever downloading it. With it I created a video that I never thought I was capable of, and it was all thanks to the app’s easy controls. There’s just one problem I’m experiencing with the app, and that’s actually exporting the videos. I made a video that’s 12:30 minutes and whenever I try to export/download it, the app says “Sorry, there was an error” and I have the option to retry or cancel. I made and 5 second long video to see if I would have the same problem but it downloaded pretty quickly, so if your thinking about using this app, I recommend not making too long a video, otherwise you wouldn’t be able to download it. I’m really bummed out about not being able to export the video I spent hours on but other than that this app is all I could ever want and more! 😊
An answered prayer to a tech challenged individual
by KimFam on 2019/07/25 17:29
Lots of features that are easy to use! Editing is pretty quick, and simple; unlike some software that is cumbersome. I did watch a ‘How to’ video from Brant_Moore to help me figure out some features. His video was greatly helpful. (This is a review of the updated version.) I knew nothing of video editing and was able to add text, cut, splice. The feature I am finding challenging is splicing. When I sliced an additional video, I couldn’t splice at the very beginning, I had to add, splice and move. Also, the my text became tethered to the new video and then all my text blurbs were off. When adding the video, the text did not stay with the timing of the original video. Instead it is on its own timeline. So, when the video was spliced in the beginning, the timeline for the text didn’t accommodate that change. Right now, I saved my original video edits as a separate file and then I’m going to create an entirely new project and splice the original edited footage with the footage I wanted to add. Maybe I’m doing this incorrectly?
Minor things
by Cheesy_Ninja1 on 2020/06/23 17:33
I love this app and i have had it for years, and before the huge update awhile back it still was great, but there are some things that were gone after the update that i wish would come back. 1: for the music i wish you can go in the song waves and chose to where you would want to cut it down. 2: when you put in text it goes from the beginning of the clip to the end and it get kind of frustrating when you have a 8+ minute long clip, i think if you put in a text bubble it should be maybe 5 seconds long and then if the user chooses to they can make it longer or shorter. Finally 3: when you delete the clips from your photos on your phone it doesn’t save to the app anymore, i think this is very important because if you have the same clips on the app and on your phone then it takes up more storage. Like i said i love this app and i think you guys are doing amazing but these are some minor things that i would like to see reinstalled into the app. Have a good one and thanks for listening!
Thanks To Splice I Created A YT Series Called The Network
by Yurmomma69 on 2020/09/05 18:08
I’ve had Splice for a little over a year and I absolutely love this app. It has all the basic functions you need to make a great vlog/talk show/game show/youtube series/films. Not only that but it lets you save in 4k so your videos look beautiful on a nice smart TV. It has minor glitches where the app closes out but when you open the app again. Everything that you did is still in place which for me is great because I'm making about 25 min videos. Also, the developers of this app are constantly updating Splice. So bugs and glitches are really minor. At this point, the app just needs MORE EFFECTS WAY MORE EFFECTS, MORE TRANSITIONS, & MORE SOUND EFFECTS... If it's not asking for too much maybe we can get a split-screen where they're two different videos going at one-time side by side. I want to Thank Splice because The Network would not be possible without it. But besides having more effects,transitions, & sound effects it’s still reigns supreme.
Best Mobile App for Video Editing!!!!
by GuardianSpirits13 on 2019/02/28 21:02
This app is incredible. I have used it for so many things, and it allows for so much freedom-all for free! There are no in-app purchases (that I know of) that prevent you from full access, and no permanent watermark. You can add layers of audio, transitions, cut and trim video, and add text! A few limitations I've noticed is that you cannot edit the duration of text (it will stay for the remainder of the photo/video clip, and they have a free music library but anything else has to be uploaded from iTunes (so no file input or drive download- it has to be in iTunes on the device you're using), and you can only speed up a video to 2x (I use this a lot for speedpaints and Instagram videos), although you can save it and import it again to speed it up more, but you might see a bit of decrease in video quality. Other than that, this app is TOTALLY worth it, and if for some reason you don't like it there's nothing lost because it's free! 11/10 would reccomend.
Made my little sisters day
by HaydenDixon on 2018/09/15 14:50
This was my second year in college and I was not going to be able to travel home to be there for my younger sisters 6th birthday. She said every year she was gonna tell one college student to invite as many of their college friends as she wanted, and this year it was “my turn”. I was so eager to come home and bring some friends along, but unfortunately I was unable to make the trip... however, with this app, I was able to make a very special video showcasing all the amazing people who I would have brought home screaming “HAPPY BIRTHDAY ... !!!” It was great! Not only was this my first time ever making a video and cutting it and putting it together, but honestly my first time even thinking that there were apps for stuff like this! This app is SO easy to use and follow instructions to make pretty “professional” looking videos! Thank you developers, not only have you made this great app, but it’s also entirely free. You have made both my day, and my little sisters!
this app is very good.. but
by oysterfeet on 2020/08/26 05:12
this app is incredible. it’s so sleek and easy to learn. but there’s one huge problem. for some reason, when you exit out of the app and come back to a project it says something (a clip or audio file) is missing from the video and it just doesn’t load it. this has happened to me twice and it has ruined projects of mine. when this happens, the clips are always in their original state in my camera roll. and even if they were missing, LET US DELETE THE MISSING PART. it just stays there and puts an exclamation mark on your screen and ruins the entire project. let us delete the missing part and add a new clip in its place. this has ruined my projects and wasted so many hours of my life. please let us delete it if there’s supposedly a clip missing (even though there never is). that’s my only complaint. also i wish there were more graphic features. more presets and display options, like half screen clips and layering clips. these additions would make it the perfect app
Absolutely Horrible.
by •CoffiiBean• on 2020/05/06 17:50
I was looking for editing apps so I could make my edits anywhere (I have After Affects on my computer but obviously I can’t take that with me like I can via my phone). I saw this one and I thought it looked very good. The app trailer and the reviews looked promising, so I decided to try it out. When I first opened the app, the setup was really cool. It was easy to start a new project, so I guess I’ll give Splice that. However, when I went to add the music, it said that I needed a subscription. Let me just say, SEVEN DOLLARS FOR A MEDIOCRE EDITING APP IS WAAAAY TOO MUCH. If the app was better, fine. But just to add music?! That’s ridiculous. I thought to myself “ok...maybe I can add music afterwards on iMovie or something. Lemme just get the transitions down, at least.” NOPE. You can’t even add transitions without paying. What’s the point of it being called an editing app if you can’t even EDIT?! Other things you can’t use include kens burn, filters, and many others I would assume but I wasn’t able to find out because after not even two hours I deleted it. Don’t waste your time getting this app. It’s a total waste of time and awfully thought out. These creators are greedy people who just want money.
I’m amazed & thrilled
by Stuart Gardner on 2020/12/13 08:39
I’ve only had Splice for an hour and already I’ve completed three tiny projects which each turned out perfectly. I wanted to tackle these for ages but didn’t know how to proceed because I’m not a technical man at all. Happily, this app is so intuitive that I sailed through all three very rapidly. I should stress that these were modest, requiring only a few functions, yet while I’ve therefore seen very little of Splice I truly love it. Developers, I’ve one question, please. Is there a way of sliding a project’s play button to any desired location within the frame of the video? For instance, let’s say it happens to be right on the tip of my nose, making me look silly - speaking purely hypothetically of course, because nothing comical like that happened to me a while ago making my baby brother Rick giggle, but just in case anyone else ever has to address that issue - could I move, I mean could THEY move the button elsewhere? Thanks, and thanks for a great app!
THANK YOU!!!
by DwarvenCharzard on 2018/05/15 05:07
So I’ve been wasting my time for about two hours trying to find a free app that I could use to add together all of my videos in this series into one. I tried out a bunch of apps, and most of them were “free” to download, but required you to pay to even use it. Others, I could use without premium, but I could only add two videos at a time, and each time I did it, video quality went down. Ads happened every few seconds! Plus, it took forever. Not only that, but the watermarks were incredibly ugly! Then I stumbled upon this app, and I am sooo relieved! I can add together as many videos as I want, completely for free! I ran into no annoying ads, and the video quality in the end is wonderful! Not to mention, there’s no annoying and tacky watermark ;3 this was quick, easy, and truly remarkable. Don’t waste your time looking through other apps, just get this one! It works perfectly for my needs <3 (And THANK YOU developers. You guys really made my night)
This makes everything so much easier!
by Jeiseowsndidknfndksjdx on 2017/06/26 05:33
If you want me to write a suggestion or point out some flaws, your out of luck! This app is absolutely perfect! It has tons of different effects to use, slow motion, intense editing of both video and audio, merging photos and different transitions and, well, you name it, it has it! It's also very easy to use, at most it would take a good 4 minutes to get the hang of, I don't write reviews often but this is worth sharing! And best of all, it makes uploading photos and videos as easy as a click of a single button! Thank you for making a great and well laid app such as this! Most of them are complicated, even if they do have a lot of features, but this one is so easy that you don't even need a tutorial for it, but it still gives you a quick, yet direct and easy to comprehend one! Please get this app! It has no ads! Works perfectly! And is the best video editor on the App Store! 4.92/5 stars!! Bravo!!
Amazing, but there’s 2 problems
by xXPaleMaidenxX on 2018/07/31 15:46
Splice is just an amazing app editor! I tried so long looking for a great app editor and I found it! I love it, it’s great and amazing. You don’t have to pay anything or sign up for anything, that what I love about it. What I also love about it is that it’s all free and it’s so easy to use! I rate this a 4 star rating because I have 2 problems that I found myself.. That’s fine, I’m happy with it though! I also have been dreaming to make a successful channel and hopeful it works! But there is a problem.. 2 to be exact.. -When I try to put music from the iTunes music, it says that you need the pro one.. But I installed the other one which is called, Quik and I tried to put music on it and says brows it tried touching the iTunes logo, but I couldn’t, it would just say brows.. -Another problem is that some parts won’t bear to show up, I couldn’t do anything. Those are the 2 problems that I found.. Hopefully you can fix and if you do I will probably give it a 5 star rating!
Better before! Please read 😳😳😳
by zannster on 2019/10/27 15:12
Splice was WAY better before the update. All the update did was make Splice a bad and annoying editing app. Please return back to the original Splice. Now, I know Splice was really popular, so you want to make more things to pay for in the update. But that’s just dumb and mean. It was perfectly fine before. You could maybe (MAYBE) add some more ads in the new update if you’re not already making enough money, but why make it so you have to PAY to SAVE A VIDEO!? Like, seriously. There’s no point in making a video if you can’t save it. You might as well just make the whole app cost money. Also, everything is more complicated and doesn’t work as well in the new update. I put a long song at the end of my video, and it made 6 minutes of complete blackness at the end of the video because the song wouldn’t fit in the whole video. I mean, what? Have you guys ever heard of... cropping parts of a song off to make it fit? And I could just do more things more simply in the older version. I loved Splice before the stupid update. Please, please, please cancel the update and bring the good Splice back.
Pretty Neath TBH
by Tbuck58 on 2018/03/09 09:13
I was expecting a LOT less from a free app, even with the fantastic ratings it had. However, this app really came through. It's pretty simple to stick a bunch of shots together into a mini movie with this (that's what I used it for) and you can even put subtitles. There are, of course a few flaws. I would really like to have been able to put more than one text box on at a time, and despite looking through all the FAQs, exploring the Help section, and just trying things out, I couldn't figure it out. Also, like I've seen in some of the review around here, it does crash a lot. One more thing: they have a bunch of steps in the Help section to do specific things that they should already have as features like I've seen with apps like this before; it would just make everything a lot less frustrating. Anyway, I'm still giving 5 stars because this is a fantastic app, especially at the low, low price of absolutely free.

by asianiammmm59 on 2021/05/16 03:39
I literally have to click the screen 3/4 times just to get the split/delete option to pop up. Then when I trim the video it takes forever to update. Then the music is always out of sync. And then as of recently the music won’t play as I edit but it will once I save the video (kinda useless since I can’t hear what part of the song I’m putting over the video).

Can’t start a project
by MANINIMO on 2021/05/15 04:12
Just downloaded the app, got a 7 week trial, and the plus sign to start a project on the very first screen doesn’t even work. Restarted the app several times. Looks like it has potential but this is a ridiculous flaw. To be clear, my screen is intact and every other button works except the most important one. Very disappointing

Trying to sell the PREMIUM version by “force”
by andraradu on 2021/05/15 01:45
I am not able saving my videos as for some reason I turn out using premium features, which I AM NOT, but this way they “force” me to choose the premium and pay more. Which I am already payment $50 per year! Otherwise I worked in wain to my video! Is very frustrating. Is unprofessional and the support will not give me any indications about what what exact premium feature was I selected that I can not save my video. I will cancel it!

Not worth the money if wanting to do a long video

I spent the entire day trying to make a video my sons first 7 years of his life for his birthday & no matter what i did, at the end it told me something went wrong & it would not create. I'm in tears. Canceling my subscription. Feel extremely disappointed.

Absolutely great aside for a couple of minor inconveniences!
by DynamiteAustenite on 2019/06/20 00:00
I am absolutely LOVING all of the new features, especially the fact that I can now use the text to make subtitles!! The design is sleek and modern, the view screen is bigger, there are more sound effects, I can crop it down to square size for Instagram, etc. I’m loving it! My only issues thus far have been with editing the music. I’m working on my big ‘ol iPad, yet I nonetheless have a reeeeeeeally hard time finding the hit box for the slide bar that’s supposed to help me “crop” the music. I end up just awkwardly moving it to the side instead of shortening or lengthening the clip, and it gets very frustrating. I had to get out my Apple Pencil in order to get the job done. The other thing I’m struggling with is that, with my projects, I usually work with small music segments. In the most recent one, I’m using only five seconds of the provided music. To do that, I unfortunately have to go aaaaaaaaall the way to the end of the video and drag it down to size little by little. Then again, I’m not sure if that’s because this app was made for bigger videos. Thus far, those are the only things I would change! This app is the greatest video editing app I’ve found up to date. I’ve been using it for about two years now. Thank you so much for providing this app!
Great features especially to animate photos except for music
by 07Raven on 2020/04/17 23:06
I especially liked using the Ken Burns effect on still photos which worked much, much better - is far more versatile - and easier than its counterpart in iMovie. It’s relatively also easy to splice film clips together, too. Biggest complaint with upgrades made since summer 2019 is the loss of some of the holiday music (I had a hard time doing holiday video last Christmas) and other suitable music to use, and the loss of the feature which let you splice the free music together easily with fade-out options available at beginning and end. Also, most music supplied is too short (less than a minute) - my videos typically are 1-1/2 to 2-3/4 minutes in length. I now rarely use Splice’s music and have to import video clips I do here into iMovie or some other program to finish. Other complaint is not having special features with how text or titles displays such as the ability to have letters dropping down, or fading in and out, etc., like text features available on iMovie. However, I do like the colored text/type choices which can make text much easier to read on bright backgrounds. I also like the ease in selecting aspect ratio although it is limited to only 3 choices. Overall this is a nice, fairly easy to use editing package. I use it the most for animating static photos so they zoom in or out, move from side to side or even - on rare occasion - rotate, which is especially cool if done right.
Nearly perfect video editor!
by scotty321 on 2019/06/29 08:24
This is a pretty amazing professional video editing app that has many of the features that you would expect from a professional video editing app! Even better, the app is so intuitive and so easy to use that you will feel like you are an expert of this app within just a few minutes of using it! It’s truly amazing! There is simply no comparison between this app and Apple’s iMovie. However, it could use a few small improvements, including more responsive technical support. We sent a few emails to technical support 4 or 5 days ago, and still haven’t heard back from them yet. Furthermore, the program makes some things more difficult than they need to be — for example, when you insert text onto a video clip, it ALWAYS makes the length of the text the ENTIRE LENGTH OF YOUR VIDEO CLIP with no quick way to change it. Other video editing apps insert text at just 5 seconds, and then you can quickly change it from there. There is also no way to pull the audio from a video clip and just use that audio as a narration track for other video clips. We also have continual difficulty trying to trim the end of a video clip by dragging the end of the video — this app often things that we are trying to MOVE the video clip. (We end up splitting and deleting to prevent this from happening.) Hopefully the team behind this app is listening and will continue to improve this app! It’s already an excellent app! :)
Easy and fun to use
by Aaron Zorzi on 2021/04/29 15:38
It imports my media quickly (even large video files that are over a GB) and exports my finished videos just as fast, even when I choose 4K definition. I love the option to quickly export in different quality sizes and how it shows pretty accurate estimates of the final file size, as I often need several copies of my videos to fit the size limits of various sites I post on. The interface is very user friendly and there is an awesome array of effects, transitions, filters, etc. that has allowed me to make some pretty stellar music videos that others really enjoy. I’m happy with this app! I did experience one bug however. When I was doing some pretty meticulous audio clip editing for my one video, I had a glitch where one particular piece of audio kept playing whenever I went to preview/play what I had so far. It would overlay all the other audio even tho I had deleted that clip and when I exported it, it went away. So it only existed in the editing screen. It wasn’t a huge deal, but it did make it a bit annoying to continue editing because I couldn’t hear the actual audio over the bugged audio no matter where I was in the editing process. Only happened once and hasn’t happened again — but wanted to make the developers aware. Thanks for the awesome app!
Thank you, Splice!
by So and So zzzzzc on 2019/08/08 01:57
I’ve had Splice for three years, and I can say with certainty that this is an amazing movie/video making app. It is so easy to choose the pictures and videos you want and arrange them. There are a good number of transitions as well, and if you choose to use Ken Burns on your pictures, you can select the start and finish positions. I also enjoy the ability to trim videos in the app instead of having to trim them in Photos. You can also apply filters to videos and pictures in the app, as well as add text. The sleek design and user-friendliness only add to the appeal. But of course, easily one of the best things about Splice is the audio options. To start, there is a HUGE selection of music and the option to fade in and out. You can play as many tracks at a time as you want and precisely edit how long you want the music to play. On top of this, you can also record audio for voiceovers and narration, which is great for making stop-motion movies. I have used Splice on multiple projects and it has yet to disappoint me. The best part is that it is FREE! I know that there is an extension, but even without it, this app is truly amazing. Thank you, Splice!
The tiniest bug literally makes the app unusable.
by MyNameIsMyNameBro on 2020/02/19 13:28
Compared to all the other editing apps on the market for IPhones, this one was seemingly the best editing app BY FAR in terms of subscription pricing and efficiency. The app never crashed, the layout is very simple to understand, and it’s easy to get the hang of...but there’s a bug that literally made me go back to my original review and lower the amount of stars I gave it from 5 to 2. I’ve only been using this app for a couple of hours and I began to edit pretty large media files on it. Everything was going perfectly well and I was happy, but I soon realized that what I thought was my mistake was a bigger problem than it appeared to be. Whenever I add an audio clip over a video clip, the audio clip just remains at 100% volume no matter what I do and it’s so frustrating because there’s no reason why it should be doing that. I’ve checked that I lowered the volume, I’ve deleted the audio clip and replaced it, and still the audio was at 100% blasting volume, completely ruining hours of hard work. I can’t add in background music because of it. It’s so annoying because I spent so much time perfecting every little detail of the video but when I went to add in music or sound, there was nothing I could do. It’s very disappointing because this app is great and I really like it, but I’m definitely going to cancel my subscription after I finish writing this review.
Please fix!
by PxBerry on 2020/03/11 00:48
I love Splice and everything about it, but there’s a problem with it. Maybe this might be my iPad or something to do with settings but if there’s anything you can do please take action - I was going all well with my animations that took hours to make individually. All of a sudden it said that Splice needed access to my photos (which I gave access to AAAAGEES ago). It said that the footage in my videos needed to be restored because somehow it got deleted but I checked multiple times that the footage I had in the videos was the exact same, and it was in my camera roll for certain. I deleted splice and downloaded it again, hoping it would do something. Now, my animations are gone, I don’t have access to premium features and it is still asking for access to my photos. I went to settings, went to splice but there was no button for ‘allowing access to photos’. This happened to all of my apps. I’m really devastated that this happened to Ibis Paint X because 2 years worth of drawings are gone so I can’t see my progress. I completely understand if this is an issue that you have no control over and if it is just my iPad or setting malfunctioning, but if there’s anything you can do/ anything I could do to solve this, PLEASE let me know! Thank you. (But when this is fixed I will continue using your amazing app!)
It’s great, but I do miss the old version
by kokokokoalaman on 2019/06/24 04:48
As one of your previous users of the app, I quite liked the older version. It was simple and easy to use, especially for someone that doesn’t really like to put too much time and effort into figuring out how to simply adjust the crop of the video and all. In the old one, everything was easy to figure out, but all of these new features and this new format is a bit overwhelming. I mean, I swear I’m not as lazy as I sound, but the simplicity of the last version and its ability to still make high quality videos were probably the greatest things I loved about the app. Don’t get me wrong, I love all of the new features and effects, but I also wish it was easier to maneuver around the app and whatnot. Maybe it’s just because I’m used to the old version, but maybe it isn’t ??? Also, I wish you guys would add a feature where you could detach audio from one video and put it under another. I can’t seem to figure out how to do that with this app, but I was able to do it with iMovie when iMovie was free a long time ago, so it would be cool if you add that feature. I soooo love your app though and will continue to use it because it’s still by far the best app I can find for video editing that’s free.
HOLYYYYYY😻😻
by Lani👑❤️ on 2017/11/24 07:29
I just got this app a couple of hours ago and I rlly want to become a YouTuber and I was looking for apps to edit my videos but iMovie I need to pay for a lot of things and it was just too much. So I was looking for apps and found this......OMG it is the best and I just tried it right now, the music choice is great the transitions are great and the way u can put a filter on ur pictures and right whatever u wanna right and u have a choice of what font u want. I personally might use this a lot it’s a really easy quick way to edit a couple of pictures and turn it into a nice video and I made my first video like 6 min ago and it turned out so good. Everything is so easy to understand and use and that makes this app AMAZING. Anyone who likes to edit!!!, I suggest u get this app it is also free so u don’t have to pay to get this app and I love it already❤️keep it up guys! The only thing I would suggest is if u could put in music with the actually people singing and music that is in trend! But other than that this is a great app and I’m loving it a lot!!! Thank you guys for making this app simple, fun, cool, and quick, with many options (for free) and easy to make a really good video!!
Sis has glowed up! Easy, free, and fun to use!
by officially_jazzi on 2019/06/15 02:42
This new and improved update/ version of splice is so much better! It’s way different from the last version but in a good way. I’m still trying to get used to it but so far is a BIG, FAT, thumbs 👍🏼 up 👆🏼. And I really like the layout out of it. The only thing is that the way you add text is kinda messed up. Whenever I try to add text or a title it allways adds a extra little clip to the front and I can’t find a way to remove it. But overall, this app is really good. I really recommend this app and personally I think it the best mobile editing app out there. Believe me, I’ve basically tried all the editing apps there is and all of them haven’t really “clicked” for me I guess. this one is really easy to use and always has been. Unlike the other editing apps, this app doesn’t need you to put any information of yours like your email and snap chat or stuff like that. Some of the apps I have tried before in the past have only let you use it unless you had like a snap chat or something and that’s really annoying!!! Like I have to get an app to use another app???? But anyways, I really like this app.
What’s not to love with Splice?
by newsknapp on 2021/04/20 05:58
Splice is so incredibly cool. As a long time TV news professional, working with top editors at network level, and in stations in major markets, I have an immense appreciation for editing, which creates the magic of video. I have and do use Final Cut Pro X, v.2. But when shooting video on my iPhone I prefer the simplicity and speed with which I can get video edited and online. Clean, quick, solid stuff. When I first wrote about Splice months ago, I wanted more features, but doubted single timeline editing could provide it. Now Splice has cleverly created other ways for me to use sound from one bit of video with the natural sound that is tied to the main video I’m editing. Until recently, I couldn’t separate video and sound, but in fact I now can by lifting sound and moving it around beneath another. This sounds more complex than it actually is. Overall, Splice is simply brilliant. And really, I learned quickly how to use it, intuitively. Just by trying it. Now there are tons of tutorials and it’s easier than ever. With continued development I think Splice could replace more complex editing systems. TV news is going to love it.
3 stars because it used to be so great / 5 because it’s perfect now
by EA1982 on 2020/04/10 00:10
Updating this review because all the former issues were fixed. Great app, love it! Former review: The old version of splice was perfect, this new one is expensive, glitchy and minimalist to a fault. Here’s the glitch I encountered: I tried creating a video on my husband’s phone and it never would export, I kept getting a notice saying “uh oh! Something went wrong! Try again?” And after 3-4 tries I gave up. so I had to transfer all the videos to my phone and remake it and finally it exported. The lack of buttons and options is actually very confusing. It looks sharp but isn’t super functional. As to the expense, $104 a year is kind of pricy and there aren’t lower levels for those of us who use the app less often than once a week. It was a great app before the update and I would have been willing to pay a lower usage tier to continue to access it. It’s probably still a great app if you make videos professionally several times a day, but if you’re just an average person making like 1-3 videos a month or less, this app is no longer for you (or me).
Best Editor on the App Store
by #mcswagedyswagswagswag on 2019/12/16 10:47
I love Splice. I’ve been using it for about a year, and I’m loving all the improvements they’ve been making. I remember the old version where I could see the sound waves for any audio I picked out (back when you could only use music available on the app or bought in iTunes... a worthy trade off imo). I don’t know when the update that requires payment for colored text backgrounds came out, but I do know I never had to pay for it previously. I didn’t have to until I upgraded my phone and had to download Splice again. For some reason, I think the devs graciously allowed me to use the paid upgrade for free because I’ve been using it for a long time... and I am very glad they did :) Thank You so much! Unfortunately, I haven’t connected any money to my account yet, so I don’t think I’ll be able to purchase the upgrade for a while. Hopefully it’ll be soon, but until then, thank you devs for continuing to make this app better and better. It never crashes like it used to, and I can do all kinds of neat stuff for free (more than any other app I’ve seen), and even more once I buy the upgrade!
Back to its former glory
by PrivateDaveT on 2020/04/13 17:11
This is a follow up on my last review: This app is now the best video editing app in the App Store with a well deserved 5 stars. Here’s why: I am so happy that the new version brought back the tools that had been removed and even added more features including: Transitions such as Fade to black, Blur, Crossfade, Zoom In, zoom out, etc. Default settings controls are back: Picture duration, transition duration, aspect ratio, background color and music can now be set all at once (as opposed to doing one by one). You can adjust the sound in the videos for instance: you could lower or mute the volume in a video if you don’t want it to interfere with the background music. Perhaps my favorite new tool that has been added is that you are now able to extract the audio of a video and move it around, this is very helpful when you want to add picture overlays over video without messing up the sound sequence. I love the simplicity of the apps interface and the layout of editing tools is very easy to use. I’d like to thank the developers for providing such a great useful app for free for creators like me.
Hands Down The Best Video Editing App for IPhone
by LazyListener1944 on 2021/01/26 14:17
I have the subscription version and originally intended to use it for a couple of weeks and go back to lugging my laptop for edits but ended up sticking with it. There are no gimmick features with this app. All the features work to the extent you expect from a professional desktop app yet it’s still intuitive and fast to use. I love that you can control the output quality, and now that they have added layers and masking, the possibilities have multiplied. I also see they announced the upcoming release of a key frames feature which will, again, multiply the possibilities. The pre-set transitions are also notably better than I have found in most apps. The only thing that frustrates me at the moment is that the effects you layer over your video (essentially dynamic filters) and masks, don’t benefit from allowing you to fade those effects in or out so you really have to hide the start and finish in a transition. However, It sounds like the key frames feature might help solve that if it can be applied to the top layer. Don’t know how I lived without this app!
Quite Useful
by A Truthul Reviewer on 2019/06/29 18:20
I was scrolling through the App Store looking for a video editor that allowed me to piece together pictures into my own video. When I stumbled across this, I was a bit scared to try it out. Never the less, I downloaded it and gave it a shot. This app had everything I was looking for. I could piece together pictures as I created subtitles and tweaked how long it would be. Not only can photos be put together, but videos as well. You can also add sound effects, background music, and almost whatever noise you need to add that little something to your video. I did come across an issue with the subtitles where they don’t change the length at the same time as the photo or video, so you will have to do that yourself, but that isn’t a huge issue. I do wish the transitions between videos and/or photos were quicker, but overall this is a great app to use. It’s compatible with other editing apps, so if you want different transitions, subtitles or sounds, just download what you have so far to your device and input it into a different app. All in all, if your looking for an app that’ll allow you to do all of the above, I would suggest none other than Splice.
Wow! New Design way More Efficient
by Fotosynthesis333 on 2019/11/12 06:09
The time it took me to create a video is now cut in half. I made a 3 minute video a few days ago using the older version and it took me 8 hours. Tonight I made another 3 minute video and it took me about 4 hours. I use a combination of videos and images. The efficiency of an app is always half my battle. The only issue I had using the new version, which was also an issue with the old version is freezing. In the 4 hours that I was on the app, it froze 3 times. Just a minor annoyance. I usually just close the app and reopen it. It’s pretty good at preserving my work. I’ve never lost edits or a project even when it freezes and I have to close out the app. I also like that I can do a lot of my editing and preview edits in the same window. Adding music and SPX and editing these layers is so much easier now with the slide bar feature. I will update this review later after I’ve used the new version a few more times. For now, this is my primary app because It preserves the full size of my images. Other apps I use are to restrictive with image sizes.
Great for any level
by AgentMelly on 2021/03/14 20:21
I have zero knowledge behind video editing, other than trying to find a user friendly app. I’ve used this app on and off for a long time and recently “came back” after I noticed a lot of updates that made it even more user friendly. It is great for super simple editing as well as getting down and fancy with it. One gripe: One thing that does make me still look around for other options is that - part of why I use this app is to transcribe(text) paranormal EVP’s onto the video for the audience. Having to pull the text all the way from the beginning and from the ending - all the way to where I need that text for that couple of seconds takes longer than reviewing the EVP’s themselves. This is a tedious process that really seems like there would be an easier way to put the text where I need it, and be able to move along. It really is a slllooowwwwwwwwww process and this is the part I actually hate (yes, hate; I’m sorry...) about doing it. Other than that I really do love using this app. I just work through that annoying process, because I love the app.
Great app
by lucypotter05 on 2019/05/15 21:36
It’s a great app I’ve been looking for something I can make edits for Instagram on that’s free and this is the one it’s amazing I recommend this to anyone who needs something for pictures to video editing cuz it’s great you can use your own music and your own pics and it’s free what else could you want the transition selection is a little small but I don’t mind for how good it turned out I’m gonna recommend this to my sister who also makes edit but ever since I got an iPhone I can’t transfer vids from my laptop so all my edits can’t be posted but this allows me to make save and post easily, edit: I've been using is for over a year now and i must say its my holy grail for editing apps this is the only one i use, i would like if there was more transportations and if u could make the pics or video less the a second long becuz i am still an editer amd some music beats are less then a second long so that would be cool it would be so cool if it had effects like a glitch and like effects kinda like the app crazy video maker 2 those are awesome but i sadly can't use that app
Just Advertising
by kemi Emi on 2020/04/12 19:57
I had Splice on my phone and remember being able to edit videos without needing a subscription. However, when I downloaded it again, it would let me edit any videos or even get to the editing screen without first bringing me to the subscription offer. If I clicked out of it, it would take me back to the video selection and I wouldn’t get anywhere. It wasn’t like I chose premium/subscription exclusive features or settings that could cause me to get the pop up. The app was physically unserviceable entirely. I don’t have a need for the benefits of the subscription because I don’t edit videos unless to remove certain parts of a clip or maybe screen recording. It’s fine to have pop ups. I don’t care about them. But if I’m literally unable to even access the main purpose of the app without a subscription, you’d be better off asking for money up-front or mentioning that the app is meant to solely be subscription based. The experience was very annoying to say the least and I hope it’s something that’s dealt with. The user interface is not hard to comprehend and is suitable for smaller purposes but the main reason I’m making this review, is because other parts of the app need adjustment and overview.
Has some issues
by Valicorn 🦄 on 2019/06/19 03:07
For some time I've been looking for a free app to make gacha videos and just regular videos. I was pretty excited when I saw this app that could work with my device. I decided to test it out by just trying to combine some short videos and adding some music and text to it. All went really smoothly and I really enjoyed it. The only thing that bothered me was that the video itself seemed to be really glitchy and kept stopping and going. I didn't think much of it and thought that I needed to adjust the speed of the video. I did just that but the glitchy quality didn't change. I deleted that project and decided to make a slideshow. At first everything was exported and everything was fine. Then I played it and it only showed the first clip and the rest of it was just a black screen. I tried again by deleting the project and exporting the files again. Then no matter how much I tried it kept telling me that something went wrong. Even though that's an issue that I had the first time I used Splice I was really impressed with how simple it was to use and the amazing choices of music it had. I hope you don't take this as "hate" but I still hope you look into this issue, thank you and have a great day!
Good for doing anything u wanna do
by HarryPokemonYT on 2020/09/30 11:48
I’ve been using this for everything from short memes to long YT videos. It also has a whole lot of features including (for free) no watermark, sound effects, cutting and deleting parts of text you don’t want, text to put into the video, voice overs, volume, speed, filters, different s saturation and sharpness stuff like that, cropping, flipping the video or image left right up or down, getting a background (not sure what this does), switching media from one video to a different one or duplicating anything that’s already there. (For premium) animation, effects, and music which can be from iTunes or imported. But if u don’t want to pay for the music if you have a second device just play music and hit the voiceover button to record the music. Also right now the app closes but saves most of what you did. But anyway that’s my review of this app I think it’s great and u should use it. If you’re looking for an example of the editing u can go to my channel on YT called “Harry Pokemon” I would appreciate it if u checked it out :).
Awesome not a problem at all!

The lessons are you people out there who say it’s hard to find disinfectant that affect well no that’s not true it’s easy to find all the effects you just got a pick a few pictures or videos or whatever and then see these little sound effects and different affects you just press on and then you can choose whatever music you want you can choose whatever you want it’s that simple well you people say there’s something wrong with splits or something you are all wrong and are you people out there who did good reviews good job because there should be all good reviews and when I read reviews I saw a few bad reviews so I decided to download the app myself and guess what it was perfectly fine there’s nothing wrong with it so whoever said it was bad and whoever people said it’s bad and all the people who that is that you’re all wrong and I am very disappointed in the people who made bad reviews on this and I am very proud of the people who made good reviews on this and yes if you’re asking yes I am a kid!-kristen
Disappointed
by Lenzdizzy on 2020/02/21 20:12
This app is awesome when it comes to editing, adding music, etc. really. It’s amazing. The reason I’ve given this app two stars is because, it was a waste of time. I’ve tried to save my video a million times. Only for it to say “oh no! Retry.” I assumed maybe I didn’t have enough room. I deleted the pictures off my phone. & my whole video was gone when I came back to the app. I blamed myself for just not thinking. Today, I retried. I remade the whole video. Tried to save. Still “oh no! Retry!” This time I deleted a couple apps. It was gonna let me save. Sooooooooo, I hit SAVE VIDEO. it “saved” except I can’t find it on my phone anywhere. I go back, it says I need to subscribe. I’m thinking “screw it. This is important, so I’ll do it.” This time I hit SHARE VIDEO. It gave me another option through that to save to my phone. I tried again. NOPE. “OH NO! Retry!” I shortened the video, deleted numerous things. Still NO luck. I thought maybe the video saved to the app. So, as a last resort, I deleted the pictures I used from my phone. AND NOW THE WHOLE VIDEO (that was “saved”) IS COMPLETELY GONE. Absolutely a WASTE of time. I loved everything about this app & loved loved loved the video I made so much. Too bad I can share my video with who it was intended for.
Update ruined the app
by maple79vt on 2020/05/14 14:45
Update: More stuff added to the app so it doesn’t work again! I use this app daily (unfortunately) with increased frustration. Don’t waste your money. I’ve used the app for several months now on a daily basis. I never had any issues until I logged in one day and every single video I had done was now saying the images were no longer available. Contacted the developer who immediately tried to place the blame on me saying I deleted the images off my phone. Not the case at all. Turns out I needed to do their update in order to use app. I did this and all video images returned. They shouldn’t be so quick to blame the customer for problems they create. Now, this upgrade destroyed the app. I’ve spent hours on a project only to have my work disappear. I’ve been trying to upload a video multiple times now but when I go to view it in my photos it is not there! I’d contact the developer but I know that they’ll only blame me again for an issue that they created. Again, they updated the app and messed it all up. Again they placed blame on me. I only continue to use the app daily because I paid for the year. Once that year is up I’m dumping it.
Wish I hadn’t updated
by Michi IzkurEreshkigal on 2019/10/26 04:55
Previous review: (5 Stars) Absolutely amazing, from the moment I opened the app I was given text boxes that explained what was what. There is also a huge “how to” FAQ section which was helpful. The microphone records really clearly. The only thing I wish they had was a rotate feature but it said they are working on it. I tried two video editing apps before this and got so *incredibly frustrated* because they weren’t intuitive, and barely had directions. This one definitely is easy to use for a newbie with no experience like me. Update: I haven’t had to use this app for awhile but I just did tonight for the first time since the update. The update took away so many features and became unintuitive and has no detailed “how to” section that I can find. The app use to be so incredibly versatile helping me make decent videos with no experience. Now? My videos aren’t anything like before. The only new thing I like is the way the crop feature works. I’d outline things but a few reviews already have. Heck I couldn’t even drag text correctly without accidentally hitting the exit project button. Feels like every other video editor in the app store now. I’ll probably have to find another one.
Help Please! (Thanks for the response, the app works now)
by LolNiftyLal on 2020/02/10 20:46
The whole app is pretty cool, polished, and everything, but there’s one problem, a really bad problem, I just can’t find it in my gallery, I went to the Gallery app and its not there, I went to the Camera app and its not there. This began happening when I merged a few videos and tried to save them. I put it to 60 FPS, and on 1080p, I waited about 7 minutes for it to save, then it said something along these lines: “Successfully Exported”. I pressed done, then checked my gallery, and its not there. If you don't reply, and the app is still unusable, then I’m canceling my subscription and downloading another app just like this one. Please reply, please reply, please reply, please reply, please reply, please reply, please reply, (I’m not a bot, I’m just supposed to have uploaded a video but I’m late now). Anyway, please help me with this problem, update the app, or I'll cancel my subscription. Have a good rest of your day. Edit: don't worry, it’s all fixed now, it just needed a quick restart.
Good base but much more potential
by skamllew on 2021/04/28 12:43
It would be amazing if you could highlight multiple clips/ sound clips at a time because as it stands if you want to move multiple clips and keep them in the same order, you face the tedious task of moving them one by one, and on top of that you have to try and synch everything with the music again. Right now the best way to do this is to save the whole project, and then create a new project so all of the clips are together already as one video. Another complaint is the sound effects library. It would be great if you were able to import sounds or if they partnered with and app or website with an array of sounds to use. Another thing that is hard to get around is doing text effects and making text/ pictures move during the video. Also it would be cool if they added more effects or added away you could import effects (anime speed lines and such). But overall this app is fun to use and it doesn’t take long to learn at all, if you get a little creative the aforementioned problems won’t cause you too much grief.
Don’t like the new format—but my problem is solved
by there.is.none.available! on 2019/08/26 00:21
Okay, I upped rating to four stars because I managed to figure out the new way to cut part of the video, but it always feels like I accessed the hidden edit bottom section by accident, there is no icon to make it appear, I just kind of hold my stylus down on it. NOTE—Developer was nice enough to send me an email and said that all you have to do is tap on the timeline, which explains why it eventually comes up when I tap on different areas. I still think this new version is a little too streamlined but I do appreciate the response. Original review: I absolutely loved Splice. It was intuitive, and I appreciated that you could use it for free to do basic video editing. I usually only use it to cut out part of a video, or to connect videos together. With this new version I could barely figure out how to cut out half of my video. There is no longer an edit window, or a cut choice. I managed to get it done by splitting the video, then dragged the part right after the split down to a trash icon and it worked. Ridiculous way to have to do it though.
Good but has its downs
by Gabrizs on 2020/01/20 22:29
This app has many great features such as text and zoom in animation. One feature I find it is missing is adding picture over video (a feature I need quite often). The layout of the app is quite simple and easy to navigate which makes it easier to use. Some other negatives would be of course the price of $2.99 a week. For me personally I’m okay with it right now because I don’t make videos frequent enough where the price becomes a problem, but eventually it will be for me. Another problem I face with this app is when I am exporting my video and it says it has “successfully exported” to my camera roll, but it does not. I would have to repeat the very long process about 3 times until it actually does. It becomes a problem especially with long videos taking more time to “process.” With all that being said it’s an okay app with a lot of good features and it’s pretty easy to use, besides the exporting problems. For the price point I would most likely not recommend it since I do have to use multiple apps to finished a video since this app is missing some features and problems with exporting doesn’t match its high price point.
Uh what?!!
by Tatum Shearer on 2019/06/13 18:56
Me and my friend have been using this app for OVER TWO YEARS and then it deleted all of our projects and started over. We will never be able to see those again and this makes me super mad! Please give me a link to the old splice so I can retrieve and download my videos, which were more than 30+ of them and I worked for countless hours on them. I also worked FIVE WEEKS on a project that was supposed to be a present for my little sisters birthday, and it just deleted all my projects the day before! So freakin annoyed 😒. I hate how this turned out. Me and my friends and family have been using Splice forever. The actual update in general is fine, but I hate how you guys deleted all my videos! Couldn’t you have saved the previous videos but updated the rest of them!? I am beyond outraged and I really want to have my videos turned back here. Please hear me out by saying this app is amazing and I love what you guys have done with it! But deleting all the videos I’ve had for two years is making me want to complain more and more. Seriously. Hopefully, you see this or else I just spent 5 minutes of my time writing something that is going to waste, just like my videos .
I HAVE HAD THIS APP FOR AGES, BUT THEY’VE MESSED IT UP
by BeautifulForgotten_Mess on 2019/06/23 00:21
Hello fellow splicers! I have had splice for a good year now, and have absolutely loved it. It has been everything I could have imagined. Usually you would find a free video editing app on your google play or App Store, and they would all have a secret catch to them..right? Whether hey made you play monthly, and get “premium” to use advanced things, splice was NOT one of those. It super quick and easy to use. I could crop and video, or trim and cut it. I could apply sound to it, or record my own. I could change the speed of my video, or the resolution. INCLUDING the ken burns and zoom ins. I could put filters on them and EVERYTHING. But ever since this new update came out, this splice, has NOT ever been this different. Everything about it is so messed up, and not what I’m used to doing. It all jumbled up. I even looked at instructions, and STILL couldn’t figure how to use the new update. The only thing they added were add ons, ones that you would fine in your amazing iMovie app. But that STILL didn’t help!! Get this app if you wish, but I recommend you stand cautious to the new update. It’s pretty whacky, and I’m hoping they change it back. Happy splicing:D
Fun app
by BeccaS601 on 2017/11/28 16:27
Great for what I use it for. (Silly and funny vine type videos) It has certain other features I do not use because to be 100% honest I don't exactly know HOW to properly use them. However, for what I use it for this app works great and I very much enjoy using it. After a long period of working with this app I'm updating my previous review.. I've taken off a star because this app crashes numerous times on me during editing. It kicks me out, and I have to reopen the app and go all the way back to find the exact spot I was editing. It doesn't just do it every now and then when I'm using it. It crashes EVERY TIME I'm working on ANY project, and it doesn't just crash once. The longer I'm working on a project the more it crashes. I am leaving three stars because I still feel this is the best and easiest app I've ever used for editing videos and making projects of all kinds. I would give a star back if only all of the annoying bug issues were fixed and the app was updated so it would stop crashing and kicking me out every other five minutes while I'm working on my projects! Please fix this issue!!
I would like to amend my previous review
by TheCamRes on 2020/01/04 05:09
I’ll start by apologizing for how abrasive my previous review seemed. I’m a very critical person, not intending to being overtly rude. Upon a version update, a couple of issues I was having have been resolved. Including music tracks being restored. That being said, I still stand by my review of the price issue. Personally I don’t mind paying for a software if that software is worth the money to pay for it. Further, I have a request/suggestion. If you are going to charge a subscription, would it not make more sense to charge by the month versus by the week? It’s bad enough that EVERYTHING in people’s lives is turning into a subscription, I can imagine that nobody wants to see a recurring bill on their bank statements every 7 days, 52 times every year. Or at least give people the option to choose weekly (If the plan on using “premium” features once or twice then deleting), monthly and yearly for more consistent use. Just saying. I know this is a business. Everyone wants to make money. But you can do better than this and you know it.
Amazing for compiling photos
by keyboard spam on 2019/09/04 03:11
God, where to start! I’ve had this app for about a year now and it works amazingly well for being free. I used to use IMovie, but this one had the option to A) mass disable ken burns, and B) set a standardized time for the photos. In the more recent update, that went away, though and now I have to go through and set the times for all my photos by hand. I still love this App though. I like that you can disable the splice logo at the end, most companies would have made you pay to be able to do that. The creators are always happy to help and the help feature does an amazing job of showing how things work. Summary: amazing app, great creators, only complaint is you can’t set a standard time. Edit: recent update really messed everything up. I understand that you need to make a product by making this app, but a lot of the features that I liked were taken out... it's a lot harder to set up photo compilations, and at this point, IMovie is less buggy...
I love this app buuut...
by Mercy E. on 2019/10/08 23:09
Splice is the only video editing app I use on my phone and I plan to keep it that way. I downloaded 3 editing apps and 2 of them kept asking me to pay money before I even got to *look* at the screen, except 1 of them. That app was Splice and I don’t regret ever downloading it. With it I created a video that I never thought I was capable of, and it was all thanks to the app’s easy controls. There’s just one problem I’m experiencing with the app, and that’s actually exporting the videos. I made a video that’s 12:30 minutes and whenever I try to export/download it, the app says “Sorry, there was an error” and I have the option to retry or cancel. I made and 5 second long video to see if I would have the same problem but it downloaded pretty quickly, so if your thinking about using this app, I recommend not making too long a video, otherwise you wouldn’t be able to download it. I’m really bummed out about not being able to export the video I spent hours on but other than that this app is all I could ever want and more! 😊
An answered prayer to a tech challenged individual
by KimFam on 2019/07/25 17:29
Lots of features that are easy to use! Editing is pretty quick, and simple; unlike some software that is cumbersome. I did watch a ‘How to’ video from Brant_Moore to help me figure out some features. His video was greatly helpful. (This is a review of the updated version.) I knew nothing of video editing and was able to add text, cut, splice. The feature I am finding challenging is splicing. When I sliced an additional video, I couldn’t splice at the very beginning, I had to add, splice and move. Also, the my text became tethered to the new video and then all my text blurbs were off. When adding the video, the text did not stay with the timing of the original video. Instead it is on its own timeline. So, when the video was spliced in the beginning, the timeline for the text didn’t accommodate that change. Right now, I saved my original video edits as a separate file and then I’m going to create an entirely new project and splice the original edited footage with the footage I wanted to add. Maybe I’m doing this incorrectly?
Minor things
by Cheesy_Ninja1 on 2020/06/23 17:33
I love this app and i have had it for years, and before the huge update awhile back it still was great, but there are some things that were gone after the update that i wish would come back. 1: for the music i wish you can go in the song waves and chose to where you would want to cut it down. 2: when you put in text it goes from the beginning of the clip to the end and it get kind of frustrating when you have a 8+ minute long clip, i think if you put in a text bubble it should be maybe 5 seconds long and then if the user chooses to they can make it longer or shorter. Finally 3: when you delete the clips from your photos on your phone it doesn’t save to the app anymore, i think this is very important because if you have the same clips on the app and on your phone then it takes up more storage. Like i said i love this app and i think you guys are doing amazing but these are some minor things that i would like to see reinstalled into the app. Have a good one and thanks for listening!
Thanks To Splice I Created A YT Series Called The Network
by Yurmomma69 on 2020/09/05 18:08
I’ve had Splice for a little over a year and I absolutely love this app. It has all the basic functions you need to make a great vlog/talk show/game show/youtube series/films. Not only that but it lets you save in 4k so your videos look beautiful on a nice smart TV. It has minor glitches where the app closes out but when you open the app again. Everything that you did is still in place which for me is great because I'm making about 25 min videos. Also, the developers of this app are constantly updating Splice. So bugs and glitches are really minor. At this point, the app just needs MORE EFFECTS WAY MORE EFFECTS, MORE TRANSITIONS, & MORE SOUND EFFECTS... If it's not asking for too much maybe we can get a split-screen where they're two different videos going at one-time side by side. I want to Thank Splice because The Network would not be possible without it. But besides having more effects,transitions, & sound effects it’s still reigns supreme.
Best Mobile App for Video Editing!!!!
by GuardianSpirits13 on 2019/02/28 21:02
This app is incredible. I have used it for so many things, and it allows for so much freedom-all for free! There are no in-app purchases (that I know of) that prevent you from full access, and no permanent watermark. You can add layers of audio, transitions, cut and trim video, and add text! A few limitations I've noticed is that you cannot edit the duration of text (it will stay for the remainder of the photo/video clip, and they have a free music library but anything else has to be uploaded from iTunes (so no file input or drive download- it has to be in iTunes on the device you're using), and you can only speed up a video to 2x (I use this a lot for speedpaints and Instagram videos), although you can save it and import it again to speed it up more, but you might see a bit of decrease in video quality. Other than that, this app is TOTALLY worth it, and if for some reason you don't like it there's nothing lost because it's free! 11/10 would reccomend.
Made my little sisters day
by HaydenDixon on 2018/09/15 14:50
This was my second year in college and I was not going to be able to travel home to be there for my younger sisters 6th birthday. She said every year she was gonna tell one college student to invite as many of their college friends as she wanted, and this year it was “my turn”. I was so eager to come home and bring some friends along, but unfortunately I was unable to make the trip... however, with this app, I was able to make a very special video showcasing all the amazing people who I would have brought home screaming “HAPPY BIRTHDAY ... !!!” It was great! Not only was this my first time ever making a video and cutting it and putting it together, but honestly my first time even thinking that there were apps for stuff like this! This app is SO easy to use and follow instructions to make pretty “professional” looking videos! Thank you developers, not only have you made this great app, but it’s also entirely free. You have made both my day, and my little sisters!
this app is very good.. but
by oysterfeet on 2020/08/26 05:12
this app is incredible. it’s so sleek and easy to learn. but there’s one huge problem. for some reason, when you exit out of the app and come back to a project it says something (a clip or audio file) is missing from the video and it just doesn’t load it. this has happened to me twice and it has ruined projects of mine. when this happens, the clips are always in their original state in my camera roll. and even if they were missing, LET US DELETE THE MISSING PART. it just stays there and puts an exclamation mark on your screen and ruins the entire project. let us delete the missing part and add a new clip in its place. this has ruined my projects and wasted so many hours of my life. please let us delete it if there’s supposedly a clip missing (even though there never is). that’s my only complaint. also i wish there were more graphic features. more presets and display options, like half screen clips and layering clips. these additions would make it the perfect app
Absolutely Horrible.
by •CoffiiBean• on 2020/05/06 17:50
I was looking for editing apps so I could make my edits anywhere (I have After Affects on my computer but obviously I can’t take that with me like I can via my phone). I saw this one and I thought it looked very good. The app trailer and the reviews looked promising, so I decided to try it out. When I first opened the app, the setup was really cool. It was easy to start a new project, so I guess I’ll give Splice that. However, when I went to add the music, it said that I needed a subscription. Let me just say, SEVEN DOLLARS FOR A MEDIOCRE EDITING APP IS WAAAAY TOO MUCH. If the app was better, fine. But just to add music?! That’s ridiculous. I thought to myself “ok...maybe I can add music afterwards on iMovie or something. Lemme just get the transitions down, at least.” NOPE. You can’t even add transitions without paying. What’s the point of it being called an editing app if you can’t even EDIT?! Other things you can’t use include kens burn, filters, and many others I would assume but I wasn’t able to find out because after not even two hours I deleted it. Don’t waste your time getting this app. It’s a total waste of time and awfully thought out. These creators are greedy people who just want money.
I’m amazed & thrilled
by Stuart Gardner on 2020/12/13 08:39
I’ve only had Splice for an hour and already I’ve completed three tiny projects which each turned out perfectly. I wanted to tackle these for ages but didn’t know how to proceed because I’m not a technical man at all. Happily, this app is so intuitive that I sailed through all three very rapidly. I should stress that these were modest, requiring only a few functions, yet while I’ve therefore seen very little of Splice I truly love it. Developers, I’ve one question, please. Is there a way of sliding a project’s play button to any desired location within the frame of the video? For instance, let’s say it happens to be right on the tip of my nose, making me look silly - speaking purely hypothetically of course, because nothing comical like that happened to me a while ago making my baby brother Rick giggle, but just in case anyone else ever has to address that issue - could I move, I mean could THEY move the button elsewhere? Thanks, and thanks for a great app!
THANK YOU!!!
by DwarvenCharzard on 2018/05/15 05:07
So I’ve been wasting my time for about two hours trying to find a free app that I could use to add together all of my videos in this series into one. I tried out a bunch of apps, and most of them were “free” to download, but required you to pay to even use it. Others, I could use without premium, but I could only add two videos at a time, and each time I did it, video quality went down. Ads happened every few seconds! Plus, it took forever. Not only that, but the watermarks were incredibly ugly! Then I stumbled upon this app, and I am sooo relieved! I can add together as many videos as I want, completely for free! I ran into no annoying ads, and the video quality in the end is wonderful! Not to mention, there’s no annoying and tacky watermark ;3 this was quick, easy, and truly remarkable. Don’t waste your time looking through other apps, just get this one! It works perfectly for my needs <3 (And THANK YOU developers. You guys really made my night)
This makes everything so much easier!
by Jeiseowsndidknfndksjdx on 2017/06/26 05:33
If you want me to write a suggestion or point out some flaws, your out of luck! This app is absolutely perfect! It has tons of different effects to use, slow motion, intense editing of both video and audio, merging photos and different transitions and, well, you name it, it has it! It's also very easy to use, at most it would take a good 4 minutes to get the hang of, I don't write reviews often but this is worth sharing! And best of all, it makes uploading photos and videos as easy as a click of a single button! Thank you for making a great and well laid app such as this! Most of them are complicated, even if they do have a lot of features, but this one is so easy that you don't even need a tutorial for it, but it still gives you a quick, yet direct and easy to comprehend one! Please get this app! It has no ads! Works perfectly! And is the best video editor on the App Store! 4.92/5 stars!! Bravo!!
Amazing, but there’s 2 problems
by xXPaleMaidenxX on 2018/07/31 15:46
Splice is just an amazing app editor! I tried so long looking for a great app editor and I found it! I love it, it’s great and amazing. You don’t have to pay anything or sign up for anything, that what I love about it. What I also love about it is that it’s all free and it’s so easy to use! I rate this a 4 star rating because I have 2 problems that I found myself.. That’s fine, I’m happy with it though! I also have been dreaming to make a successful channel and hopeful it works! But there is a problem.. 2 to be exact.. -When I try to put music from the iTunes music, it says that you need the pro one.. But I installed the other one which is called, Quik and I tried to put music on it and says brows it tried touching the iTunes logo, but I couldn’t, it would just say brows.. -Another problem is that some parts won’t bear to show up, I couldn’t do anything. Those are the 2 problems that I found.. Hopefully you can fix and if you do I will probably give it a 5 star rating!
Better before! Please read 😳😳😳
by zannster on 2019/10/27 15:12
Splice was WAY better before the update. All the update did was make Splice a bad and annoying editing app. Please return back to the original Splice. Now, I know Splice was really popular, so you want to make more things to pay for in the update. But that’s just dumb and mean. It was perfectly fine before. You could maybe (MAYBE) add some more ads in the new update if you’re not already making enough money, but why make it so you have to PAY to SAVE A VIDEO!? Like, seriously. There’s no point in making a video if you can’t save it. You might as well just make the whole app cost money. Also, everything is more complicated and doesn’t work as well in the new update. I put a long song at the end of my video, and it made 6 minutes of complete blackness at the end of the video because the song wouldn’t fit in the whole video. I mean, what? Have you guys ever heard of... cropping parts of a song off to make it fit? And I could just do more things more simply in the older version. I loved Splice before the stupid update. Please, please, please cancel the update and bring the good Splice back.
Pretty Neath TBH
by Tbuck58 on 2018/03/09 09:13
I was expecting a LOT less from a free app, even with the fantastic ratings it had. However, this app really came through. It's pretty simple to stick a bunch of shots together into a mini movie with this (that's what I used it for) and you can even put subtitles. There are, of course a few flaws. I would really like to have been able to put more than one text box on at a time, and despite looking through all the FAQs, exploring the Help section, and just trying things out, I couldn't figure it out. Also, like I've seen in some of the review around here, it does crash a lot. One more thing: they have a bunch of steps in the Help section to do specific things that they should already have as features like I've seen with apps like this before; it would just make everything a lot less frustrating. Anyway, I'm still giving 5 stars because this is a fantastic app, especially at the low, low price of absolutely free.
