Not free
Pay to save in camera role
by hate scams on app on 2019/07/22 11:29
I spent so much time on a video i was making just to know in the end i cant even save it without paying. I havent ever really had this problem before so for it to happen with this app shows that they just scammin to waste time
So shady!
by mx2891 on 2019/07/22 00:51
I signed up for a free trial with no knowledge of knowing that I would be getting charged $30 a month for something I don’t use. READ THE FINE PRINT
Gotta pay
by wtfftssbaa on 2019/07/21 21:57
You can only do 25 seconds and use their music unless you have some downloaded to your phone. And you can only use 10 pictures or a 25 second video unless you pay $25 a month. Scam and Boring.

Me encanta
Super expensive not worth it.
by A honest usert on 2019/07/21 18:24
Today i just browsed around this app for a couple minutes, when it first gave me the option to join the 7 day trial i hit back because i do not like subscriptions, apparently it still let me use the app still and my sole purpose was to edit a small quick slideshow with my pictures that i could download. After like a 5 minute wait i tried downloading it and it says it wants a whole dollar for just a download?? It’s like you can’t really use the app for free except upload pictures or videos for other people on the app. When i tried to confirm that my account was not being charged i went to the settings in the app and tried to see if i was in the subscription.. i hit it serveral times and it did not load in. This was sketchy at first but i just thought it’s because i don’t have a subscription in this app maybe so i went to my apple id subscriptions and it said i had none.. i better not get charged 20$ for this app because it is not worth it at all.. you have amateur editing and features, most edits in this app you can do in a free one. I do not like this app it was a waste of time. In the description you guys should add all the fees included in the app.

Why would you ask me to change my review to “reflect your real opinion” just because I complemented the idea of this app. That, above all else, seems absolutely wrong.

App Issues
by Real time critic on 2019/07/15 23:27
Since recent update, none of my new latest Magisto made videos have been able to load onto Videoshop app and iWatermark+ app. Says loading error. It’s not them. It’s magisto. I suspect there is a code preventing this. Fix immediately please.
Best app

Music
by christy94mir on 2019/07/15 06:37
Under the impression I could use my music from iTunes! Wrong. Ugh 😑 other than that it’s okay if you want a video of just pictures.
Don’t download!!! Costs $30 a month.
by Amy T 1975 on 2019/07/15 06:10
I downloaded this thinking it was free and didn’t read the fine print. Used it to make one video. Now, I just noticed I’ve been charged $30 a month for 4 months. I never would have downloaded it knowing that.
Needs improvement
by katvega23 on 2019/07/14 20:49
I’d prefer if I could do most of the editing with the pictures and how I want them set up plus some of the photos that was a group photo only captured two or one face
Beware
by kelkelfrancis on 2019/07/14 17:15
Signed up for the free trial. Was charged $35. Contacted Magisto and Apple and can not get a refund. Way too expensive for what you are getting. Just be careful and do not let the trial end because you will get screwed.
It’s nice but not $30/month nice
by TumbleBumbleatNight on 2019/07/14 12:15
I’m not really seeing what this does over other similar apps that makes it so pricey. While I understand the reasons many developers are moving to a subscription model, I do NOT understand what makes this app worth $30/month. In fact, I don’t think I’d pay that much for any app on a monthly basis. It’s absurd. This editor is nice but apps like Quik, Splice, iMovie, and others can achieve the same results for free or far less (with no monthly cost). I would consider this app if the price was more like $20/yr, or a couple of dollars a month, but the current price is just too high.
video quality trash
by arysboo47 on 2019/07/14 06:36
i paid to save my video and the video quality looks like it was recorded on a potato :-)
Pretty good
by reviewer 3377737777 on 2019/07/13 23:50
I liked the app a lot. The transitions and music were great. The part of it that made the video for you would be perfect for someone who didn’t want to spend too much time on it. However, for my purposes, I wanted to control it more and edit it and make the video myself. I don’t know if it’s just me and I’m not navigating the website well enough, but those are my thoughts. Also, I wish that I could make the amount of time spent on each photo a little greater. But my complaints are specific to only one project, and I think that for anything else, this app would be perfect!

Amazing fun app love it
Good by just at the beginning
by JennyG.1986 on 2019/07/13 20:13
It’s a nifty little app at the beginning. Until after you’ve paid for their premium and realize they never add anything new to their app. After 5 videos you’re out of options to make things new and specific. Their “professional” package is extremely expensive when other video editing apps that are FREE offer so much more. Maybe if they would add new filters every month it would be worth the price. Or if they treated their premium subscriptions better.

Great app!
Very deceptive app
by Ishalovestheworld on 2019/07/12 11:39
The app was on a monthly renewal and used frequently when first downloaded. Didn’t use as much in last few months but continued to pay the monthly with last payment on June 20th. Went in on July 11th and had to download the app due to extended non-use. No option to download but an option to do a 7-day free trial. Needed to edit a video made in the app but did not intend to continue. Next day on July 12th I was charged $79.99 for a year. Apple support reversed it but spent a half hour trying to fix this and finally told Apple it needs to review the apps deceptive trade practices. Buying apps on Apple have never been an issue until now. What a horrible customer experience. Stay away from this app it’s not worth the headache.
Bruh it’s bad

SUBSCRIPTION?

A subscription for a video editing app? Uhm… No. Fail. Grade: D-
Volume off means volume off
by jaseinatl on 2019/07/11 07:47
For crying out loud I can’t believe this app ignores the hardware button used to mute the iPhone. What is up with that? The only other app I know of with this little respect for someone’s desire to remain silent is Skype and we all know what garbage that is. Apple has standards, how could this get published? Nearly lost my job starting your app during a presentation. Thanks.
Buyer Beware
by TELjr60 on 2019/07/10 16:17
I wanted to try this program out so I signed I signed up for it. I since discovered it is not working for our company and I have tried to cancel. They have made it extremely impossible to cancel, thus continuing their monthly charge. I finally reach a live person who stated she would cancel my plan. That has not happened and I am still getting monthly debits from my account. This is a scam and once they lock you in, I am wondering if I’ll ever get out.
Do not get if you would like to save your video
by awesomedragon1000 on 2019/07/10 04:36
This is just wrong I got this app to make videos to put on a app that I have then I learn I can’t send it too that app or freaking save it! Total waste of space and money. I’m not spending 30 freaking dollars for a video to be saved.its trash not my video.the app, the app is trash

by unbreakablev on 2019/07/09 18:27
I downloaded this program hoping it was something else, then deleted it immediately. Still, they billed me $30 and wouldn’t allow for a refund within an hour of the transaction 🙄. So annoying. Just make sure you ‘cancel subscription’ of these tricky trial / download ****faces. Cheerio
It’s great!
by 李生哥 on 2019/07/08 22:22
I like the app and it’s great! I do recommend this app but, I wish I could add more photos without getting premium because I get my money from YouTube and I don’t get money from anyone unless I find it from the ground, I will still use it but my videos won’t be that great.
Lost its appeal for the price
by MilehighMe on 2019/07/08 17:09
I was a huge fan of this app in the beginning for its ease and quality production. I’ve been using like 3 years, but the price is no longer worth the lack of flexibility. I am not willing to upgrade to the business version in order to better create the order/storyboard for my videos. I may just switch back to iMovie as it’s features and auto editing is becoming comparable.

by astro figurelover 18cusine on 2019/07/06 03:10
I went on this app all happy saying that I will use this app to edit videos and this must be a good app, but then I’m looking at the reviews. And I’m not so sure anymore but I go ahead and download it anyways. So I’m on the app and I’m searching my videos I only put one picture and one video the video was only 11 seconds long. So I want to go press the done button to get start anything. But I couldn’t because it wouldn’t let me present. It said that I needed either five photos and that video or either a minute long video and that photo and I’m like nope I’m automatically deleting this.
Will steal your money !!! DO NOT DOWNLOAD

by cambam3502 on 2019/07/05 23:49
It won’t download the vids I created, it says downloading, but it’s not, it has been doing that for five days, it was really fun to create them, and look at other peoples vids, but it won’t work and download mine. I hope you can fix this, it might just be my phone though, if not it’s all chill, it seems to be working for other people tho.... It’s probably not ur fault, over all, pretty great app...
Removing features
by Losthero on 2019/07/05 07:32
This was a nice little app. I was surprised to see that the publisher saw fit to reduced the level of functionality in the app and packaged it as an update. Prior to that action I really had nothing bad to say about this app.

Don't Start Free Trial
by Dopeschmidty on 2019/07/03 15:15
It's not worth your time or your money. I sat there trying to figure out how to even use the app before I realized that it has absolute terrible graphic edits and sounds. Don't bother. I forgot about this app after day one of use, and low and behold I had to start a free trial just to evenuse it. Since it was so crappy that I forgot about it altogether, I received a charge for $32, THIRTY TWO dollars for a terrible app. It put me in the negative on my account. Do not use this app.. the only thing that would make me delete this review is if they refunded me, but I highly doubt that would even happen.
Cancel subscription
by agbalog on 2019/07/03 15:03

Fix the change.
by Ellie022119 on 2019/07/02 03:34
I use to use this app weekly to make short clips of my travels and life experiences until I got a new phone and realized they changed it to where you have to pay just to use it. It’s too expensive and I’m sure I’m not the only person forced to stop using it because of finances.
It was great! Until the purchases...
by K🍪🍩🍩🍦 on 2019/07/01 23:04
I used this app for a good 3 years and absolutely loved it! It was an amazing way to make movie trailers, mini movies, and a way to take all my vacation pictures/videos and keep them forever without deleting them eventually. But that can’t happen now because you have to PURCHASE something to save your photos to camera roll. For certain templates, I get it. But this is ridiculous. At LEAST let me save my movie! I already can’t choose whatever template I want, the least you can do it let me save it.
What?...
by Adri Mitchell on 2019/07/01 23:00
I never downloaded this app...I just got emails saying that I I’m paying for something that I never even heard of this app till I got this email...How can I stop this from happening???? I don’t really care much about a refund I just want it to stop.

I like this app just ain’t gonna pay for an upgrade doesn’t seem that much enticing to do so overall it’s pretty legit for the most part you get a 5 if you threw a few bones my way with making “me “ pay first like all good apps do. They let you swim in the whole pool then they let you know there is also a “deep in” if you like??
Needs more features
by Big fan mad on 2019/06/26 13:39
I love this app for what it does but if I could put the pictures/videos is the order I choose, I would love the app. Also, it’s so hard to go back and correct photos because they make you go back through your entire photo album to delete a photo.
AMAZING
by nubeeeditor on 2019/01/15 09:10
I am making a video for my boyfriend containing a ton of pictures from our first year together. I tried iMovie and it was a NIGHTMARE, at least on iPhone. I was worried I wouldn’t be able to find another good editing software. At first glance, I didn’t like how this app seemed to do everything for you, but I went ahead and put the pictures in and put a couple random settings real quick, just to see if it was something I wanted to put more time into. The result was almost exactly what I was looking to make! With just a couple minor tweaks, my finished product will be ready! I am so very impressed and surprised in the best way! The only thing I would change is the fact that you can’t put over 100 pictures in one video, but the rest of this app was so incredible that I will work with that and it will still end up being the best video I’ve ever made! 100% would recommend!
Good but expect more

So I really like what this app has to offer, and as someone who makes videos as a means of income I do not mind paying a monthly subscription rate for access to better video templates. I first started out using the professional version I think it was but then decided to increase my subscription to the business subscription because of the longer length in videos. And upon reading the comparisons for the different subscription levels, your chart did not have a maximum time limit listed for the business version. So I decided to go ahead and pay the $80 and try it out because I wanted videos that were longer than five minutes. But upon doing so the app still will not let me make a video longer than five minutes even if I choose 30 minutes of footage for it to use. And I feel like if I am paying $80 a month that I should be able to have videos as long as I want them. I would even be happy with a 10 to 15 minute maximum length as a lot of the videos that I make tend to be around 9 to 12 minutes long. But I am very unhappy with the fact that I’m still limited to only five minutes when your comparison chart does not show a time limit. If there was a maximum movie length listed on the business version I probably would not have spent the $80 just to try the very few templates that were there. Because I purely increased my subscription rate based off the fact that I wanted to make longer videos
Can I at least see if it works first??

So far- 15 minutes in- I’m not a fan—BUT, gimme a minute more and let’s see what this thang can do... In response to staff inquiry: First, thank You for your response, it’s good to know that the developers ARE listening. Second, I apologize for the untimely follow-up and upon your notification I immediately searched my inventory for your app to refresh my overall review. After realizing I’d deleted it from my downloads, I went back to figure out why. Instantly I recalled the experience I had, and simultaneously experienced it again. From the gate, I’m bombarded with in-app purchases— ones that actually require the app to work well at all. The selections I’m left with WITHOUT coming straight from my pocket, do not compare to the apps I have used for several years- and that DO NOT hinder my video process by constantly soliciting up-sales. I understand everybody has to make money- I understand technology is not free nor is ANYTHING, however if I DO download a FREE app (and they all have in-app purchases) I want to be able to use it WITHOUT a salesman at every turn. In fairness regarding what your app actually does— for the Novice, unexperienced, super-busy, or just unimaginative person- my opinion is that it DOES make the process easier. For those people, this is probably a good start- for ‘not’ those people, i would believe it’s not much use. Again, thank you for taking time to listen to your public. Z.
Not as many options as it seems
by itssydneycnt on 2019/01/26 22:03
I started the free trial to see what the $30 a month entails, must be good right? Considering the amount of video editing apps available at no cost you’d think one that’s $360 a year would have TONS of options, not the case. The second star is because this app MIGHT be useful for people who have no clue what they are doing or are super duper lazy. You can’t edit which animations are used, or what order all the special effects and what not are. You basically put in your videos and hope that it does an okay job. VERY basic, this would be very useful for someone who is 80 years old and has no idea how to do any editing and isn’t willing to learn. If you want to edit that font it’s gonna cost you $80 a month, which is $960 a year. I don’t mind paying for something that would be worth it, but this app clearly thinks they are sitting on a gold mine with offering nothing extra that similar apps also have. Finagle with a couple free apps, and figure out how to use their animations and music, it will be the same if not better than this app. I am canceling immediately and using inshot, you can speed up videos, slow them down, put them upside down, add animations, music, text, and you can control it all, for free. I believe I purchased a package of animations for like $1.99, which is way more reasonable and realistic for what the app does.
Filthy tactics
by habarsamian on 2018/07/04 12:28
Do not download this app. They make it extremely difficult to cancel your “subscription”. Here’s my story: Looking to get into video editing so I go look for some apps on the App Store and see magisto. I read the description of their app and see that the download is just a free trial and I would need a subscription. I think to myself ok too easy I will just get in the app and cancel the auto renew as soon as I download. I don’t like paying subscriptions and I wasnt too devoted to editing anything yet for a price ( and if I was i definitely would not use this app , the video it produced was horrible). anyway I get into the app and immediately go to “cancel subscription”. I hit the cancel button and go through the process several times and I never seem to get a solid confirmation. So I decide to close the app and reopen it. When I returned to the settings screen I see the option to “return to subscription “ so i think ok it must have been cancelled. Apparently not the case because I had a$30 charge on my card today. And apparently the developer support is telling people on here that if they set up a subscription through their Apple ID they need to cancel the subscription through their Apple ID. However seems a bit misleading to have a “cancel subscription” button that doesn’t actually work. I will get my money refunded.
Want to cancel the subscription? Mwa-ha-ha
by Big Giant Octopus on 2018/07/26 12:51
I faced the same issue as some reviewers below: signed for a trial to check the full functionality of the app for the further occasional use when I need it with no intention to pay for Professional version (as I don’t need it). Before signing for the trial I checked the Terms to make sure on the way to unsubscribe, and it was stated to be done over My Account right in the app. So in a few days I cancelled the subscription the way it was requested in their Terms, however have been billed anyway, when the trial expired! After some emails back and forth with Magisto support I’ve been told that the process of cancellation is different from what they requested in their Terms and refund is also the authority of Apple. I don’t get it, why to have this misleading “Cancel your subscription” button in My Account, if it does nothing?? And why have describe the procedure of cancellation differently in the Terms visible upon signing up? All together it looks very filthy to me. Kudos for the support team replying and doing it fast. Nice and fun app in general, even the outcome quality of the video is horrible. But this billing filthy thing - baaaad, too bad, guys.
Super expensive not worth it.
by A honest usert on 2019/07/21 18:24
Today i just browsed around this app for a couple minutes, when it first gave me the option to join the 7 day trial i hit back because i do not like subscriptions, apparently it still let me use the app still and my sole purpose was to edit a small quick slideshow with my pictures that i could download. After like a 5 minute wait i tried downloading it and it says it wants a whole dollar for just a download?? It’s like you can’t really use the app for free except upload pictures or videos for other people on the app. When i tried to confirm that my account was not being charged i went to the settings in the app and tried to see if i was in the subscription.. i hit it serveral times and it did not load in. This was sketchy at first but i just thought it’s because i don’t have a subscription in this app maybe so i went to my apple id subscriptions and it said i had none.. i better not get charged 20$ for this app because it is not worth it at all.. you have amateur editing and features, most edits in this app you can do in a free one. I do not like this app it was a waste of time. In the description you guys should add all the fees included in the app.
I hate auto subscriptions. Why are these still a thing?
by cdbennett1231 on 2019/03/24 14:06
Don’t be like me, read the fine print. An add for this app appeared on my feed and I just wanted to play around and check it out, so I opted in on the free trial. Since my phone already saves my payment info and such, I did not realize my account would automatically be charged after the trial. I spent over $60 (2 months) before realizing it was charging me (I had deleted the app from my phone not knowing I was subscribed). I didn’t even end up using the app! So, be careful and take your time. If this is the app for you, great, if you’re just bored and decide to click on the advertisement and check it out, be wary of the auto charges since they will not refund you. Personally, I believe automatically enrolling people with a subscription without making it 100% transparent should be illegal, and doesn’t make me believe you have a great product. Great product sells itself, and doesn’t need to rely on people’s lack of awareness. This is just my opinion.
Got very greedy
by BigT54 on 2018/05/20 02:35
I use to love this app but they slowly became so greedy. Charging you for so many ridiculous things that people do for free. You can’t even save your own videos unless you subscribe to their monthly fee, A total rip off I’m done with this app. The blocking you from doing so many things unless you pay. Don’t waste your time or your money, they became very greedy and there’s many other app developers the do just as good a job if not better for a lot less. The latest update put the nail in the coffin for me and I would like to encourage you all to not purchase this app unless you’re willing to spend money every single month just to use it.
Not worth the money and VERY poor customer support
by artc1688 on 2019/05/21 19:50
Heard from a friend about this SW and it’s ability to automate the creation process. Decided to give it a try. The very short version (15sec?) was cute and decided to try the 7 days “professional “ version. When I realized Tencent, Google and other apps offer similar feature and convenient for free, I decided it it not worth the money. However, the cancellation process for the trial version was not simple at all!!!!! I looked all over and unable to find ANYWHERE within he app on how to cancel the subscription! I wrote to customer support looking for help and the response from customer response was not helpful and kept asking me why I didn’t like the SW! After mutual attempts they sent me the link and told me I have to go into the iTunes account and cancel it!!! Also, by this time they have already charged me and now I have to beg ITunes to return my money because the customer support was poor and the cancellation process was unclear and difficult. Try Tencent SW or Google, it’s free and you don’t have to deal with magisto customer support!!!!
Little to no editing freedom.
by Nim Num on 2018/06/06 19:33
I mean, for free, fine, whatever, but there is so little you can do! You have to have music, and you have to have a title appear on the video. I just needed to make a video that was “made together” to post on social media, not anything fancy (well, it isn’t FANCY, definitely not.) I gave it two stars instead of one because it would work for like a five year old (at least on the free one, no way was I going to be spending money on an editing APP when I have things like WeVideo.) I only got this app to be quick, and while it was quick, the video looked like crap, and you couldn’t even edit the video yourself! No creative freedom, and worst of all, it looks awful, let’s be clear. There is huge white letters that must play on the screen, and then you have awful music (which I wish they had a choice for NO MUSIC) in the background. I wouldn’t even recommend this for a home movie sort of thing. Don’t know what you would even do with it. Little editing freedom, and makes your simple videos stick into a box that they want your videos to fit in. Overall, this app wasn’t even comparable to iMovie! At least iMovie let’s you make your own video, which I was looking for an improvement from to edit videos together (not looking to make a horrible home movie, just edit videos together into one price, which one would think would be pretty basic for an video app.
Please change quality of final video cut
by ShennenEilleen on 2017/11/07 14:19
Ur videos look like total dogdoo no matter what you do - Magisto final edit destroys them - even when shot in 1080 for ig or on a dslr hd cam this app degrades the quality so bad.. so sad because I paid for a few months of this but a business account is wayyyy too much money.. I really would need to try it for a month before paying for an entire year - It actually destroyed two videos I made but I had to use them because my time is money - Tried filming different ways in higher quality and it just makes the films so low quality - I'm willing to pay for the business acct if there's some sort of guarantee that I can actually get my videos in the hd quality it shows me playing the video WITHIN the app before I download it to my phone or ig.. I actually was about to jump on paying for a year right before creating the first movie glad I didn’t - I've also written your customer service and no one ever got back to me about questions I’ve asked on both ig dm and emails
Want to love it
by Dustysage on 2018/12/29 22:34
There is so much to move about this App. It DOES make BEAUTIFUL videos. Unfortunately, the lack of controls means that most videos are unuasable in the end. Too often, the software selects clips which are unimportant or draw attention to the wrong things. And almost always, the clips are shown in such an out of order fashion that the video makes no sense. Two quick enhancements would fix that problem for me. 1) allow me to set the order the clips are shown. And 2) allow me to select a hot spot on video clips that I want to make sure are featured. For example, if I’m making a video of my day at Disneyland, I don’t want the fireworks to show up first, I want them to be the grand finale. I don’t want the people in the crowd to be the focus, but rather my own friends or the attractions themselves. I think this is an easy fix with just a few additions to the edit tools.
Potential to be Great
by Rearea1 on 2017/11/11 21:13
This could be a great app if only it would work better without Wi-Fi. There seems to be a little glitch with my app it will not work if I'm not in Wi-Fi. It's also hard to edit you have to go through the whole process before allowing you to re-order photos, delete photos, add photos, change length of time, or make any changes it has to go through the entire process before you could do it again. It's kind of a bummer and a waste of time that the editing is not easy to use. Also wish that you could choose where you want the music to start instead of only being able to play the music from the beginning of the song. Finally, it would be the best if you could make movies over 4 minutes.
Misleading
by Rkjest on 2018/09/21 14:27
Terribly misleading in the descriptions and functions of this app. First of all, note that it comes up first in the App Store with an “Ad” listed next to it- which means they pay for sponsorship and push faulty reviews!! I doubt that all of these five stars are legitimate, as there are so many problems throughout. From there, they push multi-tiered subscriptions on you with any attempt to explore the app. The user interface doesn’t make any sense. There aren’t tools for you to use on your own- you have no option but to choose a pre-designed template. It hardly makes any sense! I’m appalled that the App Store allows a company to push this obvious scam. And obviously the devs are “listening:” it’s more like defending themselves and trying to rake in the cash in any way possible. If they are a legitimate company that actually cares, focus on creating a good product that works instead of pawning this off to us like Snake Oil salesmen.
Magisto is Amazing
by JonD2019 on 2019/04/19 23:52
I make a movie every month and for every holiday and occasion! People always marvel at how amazing they are. But I feel guilty taking the credit since the Magisto app does all the work. I just select photos, vids, theme, music, title and time and in just a few minutes, Magisto creates a professional looking video! I can’t believe how the app is able to zoom, splice and transition so perfectly every time. It’s really astonishing. If I was to use a traditional photo editing app to accomplish the same result, it would take me 10 times as long! Magisto has been a part of our family memory making life since 2015 and it’s now indispensable! Try it, you’ll love it!
Amazing Video Processing Software!!!!
by Seasidesell on 2019/01/27 14:05
What this program does is nothing short of amazing. The amount of work and image processing and video processing it takes to combine and automatically make a video that looks incredibly manually made is amazing. Yes it’s not 100% perfect. There may be some scenes that need to be tweaked. But when I think of the amount of time I would have to spent doing this manually through Photoshop or Adobe After Effects I am totally blown away. Since I don’t use it for business the cost is a little bit high. I used it for my own personal videos. I wish they had an option where I could just pay one fee to purchase it.
Better and Better
by Sirhc401 on 2018/04/11 21:49
I have used Magisto for a few years now. They have come a long way from the few cool clips you could make. Video collages could not be made simpler and edits allow you to make tweaks until you love it. They make great 1:30 to 2:30 min videos to capture our trips and vacations to share with family and friend, plus go back and live in the land of nostalgia. If I could critique one thing, it’s that as they have grown it has been more focused on business subscriptions and they don’t keep/update styles like they used to. However, they have expanded music selection. Looking forward to more content in the future!
Misrepresented
by L💚CA on 2018/08/06 13:52
I tried the free business trial, because it said I could easily cancel within a week in “settings”. I tried it, the video quality was awful and there weren’t anymore options for creating a pro level video/slide show than my free apps. For $30 I expected way more than my free apps. Then, When I went to cancel, it turns out you have to cancel in ITUNES SETTINGS, not the app settings. Had I known this I wouldn’t have done the trial (I rarely do trials and checked to make sure it was easy to cancel), my iTunes account has been very problematic for years. Took me 3 hours to resolve the situation and customer support at Magisto had zero ability to fix it on their end and didn’t apologize for the misleading copy. Wish I had an option for zero stars. The customer support team is fairly quick to answer your emails, to tell you that they can not and will not do anything to help.
Best App to Auto Generate movies
by Phil222 on 2019/05/12 04:27
I have use this app for the last three years and I’ve tried dozens of different video editing apps and I also use more complex ones like Adobe Premier and this one has always been the one that I go back to because of how well it is able to intelligently choose parts of clips the best fit the movie altogether and the template style options and music options are far better than other apps so your movies are more likely to be unique. It also handles the large amount of data without bugs and renders video quickly. Great app And I look forward to seeing what’s to come.
BE WARNED - 1 trial even if it’s been 5 years
by Mollewog on 2018/06/27 13:07
I recently trialed, or so I thought, this app. After searching through multiple video editing apps, I came across this one and “trialed” it. I didn’t realize I had purchased it until my bank statement showed it. I had no response from this company, nor Apple, to me signing for a free trial letting me know I had actually purchased the app. According to Magisto, it’s Apple’s policy for a one time free trial. Ok. I understand. Perhaps it was in the fine print... but I believe that Magisto should care for their potential customers and reiterate that... or at the very least give a warning when signing for the free trial that it is not actually a free trial. Sidenote - I apparently signed up 5 years ago when my baby was a few weeks old. I had completely forgotten about it. So, my fault..for not reading the fine print somewhere, wherever it is. And for forgetting I had tried a free trial. I get it and I paid the 32 dollars for this app. Lesson learned... but felt I should let others know so they don’t make the same mistake I did. Bottom line - good app but not for the price. You can find better for less $$. I don’t trust this company so I don’t plan to use it nor will I recommend it.
Magisto App will make your family and friends cry tears of joy
by Jumpinjackfire on 2017/12/20 15:46
I don't generally write reviews. However this Magisto app is special. It syncs together videos and pictures making you the photographer look like you are as good of a movie director as Ron Howard. My pictures and videos of vacations, friends weddings, holidays spent with family, Eagle Scout ceremony, etc are priceless. I like to take several pictures and short video clips of 10 to 30 seconds. Then just pick the pic and videos you want. Select a music theme from Magisto along with a title to your movie and Magesto's magic does the rest. Get This App. Enough Said!
I would probably not recommend it.
by The Nightmare Hour on 2019/05/27 23:14
Despite its ability to arrange your content into quality videos with minimal effort, there are a few things that stand in the way of me giving Magisto five stars. The app is unreasonably limited for those who cannot afford the premium addition. However, buying the premium addition leads to renewal the app doesn’t warn you about. Magisto actually makes it quite difficult to access the controls through which one might be able to cancel subscription. That is not the last of the problems, though. For those working on tablets rather than phones, there is no version that allows users to enable a landscape setting, contrary to many apps on the store. It’s these minor inconveniences that restricts me from being compelled to use the app.
it's ok.
by Reviewgirl432 on 2018/04/05 16:00
I was looking for a video making app, and after i watched the video, i was pleased. But when i used the app it said $30 a month, personally, i think this is way too much. Some people wouldn't mind paying that, but others like me don't. I think you should add the price in the video for this app so people know how much they need to pay. Next, I'm glad there is a 7 day trial, so i tried it out, but you have to have atleast 15 seconds of a video. When i make videos, i prefer to put together what i have so far, to see how it looks, and then add on. but mine was only about 6 seconds so far, so it wouldn't let me look at the progress. Other than that, it's a good app. If you are willing to pay, then i suggest it.
Great app
by jmb12031101 on 2018/07/29 06:19
First review I’ve ever done no lie but this is a dope app for makin ur own short videos I jus used it for my first time but I can see things i would like to be better about it but overall it’s a great app just needs a little bit of refinements in all aspects more powerful more user friendly help with things the common person wouldn’t understand make it more bold in the appeal or naming perhaps. Just hoping it turns into an app I’ll love n maybe possibly be able to make money from because there is a business section I haven’t tried it yet
Dropped my rating to 2 star because..
by Maliceon on 2019/03/05 13:31
It used to be intuitive and now it's so random it's just clips and crap music. The #1 reason for using this app for getting to checkout all the new indy artists on the rise. Now it's just a lot of public domain stuff. Also I have a pro subscription and it still won't let me make a long video. Just a short or medium. After more than 5-6 years at the rate of $9.99 a month totaling around $600 one would think I could make a full 3min video by now. 😟 but no. I'm not going to renew my subscription this next billing cycle. It's not worth it. I will be back later in the year to check and see if any updates have improved the experience because I really did love this app for many years. I hope it gets back to good.
Don’t subscribe to Premium
by 123vj on 2019/02/11 15:41
Premium subscribers have no option to edit their videos or rearrange the images, slides or information flow. They have to choose a few of the resources and let some AI or program decide what to do with them. If you are lucky, they come in the intended order. Otherwise, you will see a highly jumbled video which serves no purpose. It’s a purely deceptive technique on their part to force users to subscribe to more expensive professional or business subscription to edit their creations. They should let the premium subscribers at least to rearrange the images in a proper order before its is stylized by their program. Disappointed that I have to pray each time to make a video that things will fall in place. A very dicey situation.
Subscription scam
by The Real Deli on 2018/12/05 18:10
I had cancelled this months ago and realized in an accounting audit that it was still connected to my iTunes Store account. Just went through the cancellation process again and the way that it is designed as a trap to make you think you’ve canceled when in fact it takes two tries and some back stepping to get a message that tells you to go to the iTunes account to cancel, which in and of itself is a convoluted process. Your cancellation process is clearly a trap, and I wish iTunes would regulate people like you from using their payment platform. You may have a good rating for people who want to use your app, you get a one star from me for your support telling me there was nothing they could do to help that I should contact the iTunes Store. Standby your rip off program.
READ FOR INFO ON HOW TO CANCEL
by Maimoon416@ on 2019/04/15 07:42
Their free trial was helpful but it was a pain to cancel everything. ***READ FOR INFO ON HOW TO CANCEL -go to the Settings app -then go to iTunes & App Stores -tap on Apple ID at the top -select view Apple ID -go down to Subscriptions -click on the app you want to cancel and cancel it Hope this helped some of you since it took me forever sitting in frustration and anxiety to cancel the app on time before it charged me. Instead of just saying we should cancel in iTunes they should explain how to do it. SMH. I loved the app honestly. I didn’t need anything too professional since I was just using it for family and friends but it was really too expensive for what it was. I can’t be paying $20-$30 a month for this when I only used it for one project in the last month. I have other more important priorities, bills to pay for. If it were $10-$20 for the whole app, not just monthly then I feel like more people would buy it. This monthly thing is really not helping you guys. Feels more like a swindlers scam than a professional app.
Stopping Payments is a nightmare!!!
by Stormyrose on 2018/06/21 12:33
I was going to cancel my subscription for a month or two but to do so is seemingly impossible. I cancelled from the app, or so thought. When I got charged again I though, “well, I must have done it incorrectly”. This time, I get a pop up that says I have to unsubscribe through my iTunes id. I follow the steps to unsubscribe from there-it’s listed but there is no unsubscribe option. I email support and am refunded $7.57. Upon closer look at my account I find that when I “ugraded” from a $6.99 plan to a $15 plan it wasn’t actually an upgrade. I was still being charged both. Upgrade apparently means something very different to Magisto. I file a dispute with PayPal. They are still looking into it. Today My BANK account-not PayPal is charged another $15 from Magisto!!! I go to look at my iTubes Subscription and it is listed as cancelled. Magisto is still telling me I have to unsubscribe through iTunes and not them. This is a mess! What am i supposed to do to stop the payments-close my bank account and PayPal???? These people cannot be trusted. Not only have I lost money, but the amount of time I’ve wasted on just unsubscribing from this ridiculous app is absolutely absurd!!
Disappointing
by @janicejuvices_ on 2018/12/30 16:36
The process of getting the final result was a little confusing and time wasting but it wasn’t horrible. The BAD part was the video quality :/ I looked through the reviews and saw that other people had the same problem and the response that some people got was that I had to use the same device that I recorded with... which I did and still got horrible quality. Another problem that some people had was cancelling their subscription. At first I was panicking because their cancellation process was confusing and the price was quite up there, but all I had to do was go on their help services and they lead me through the proper steps. Overall, the app isn’t that great and it’s confusing to manage at first.
Not what it used to be.
by TheEgo on 2018/11/03 21:47
I was a fan of Magistro for the simplicity of making a good short video in HD in their early days, it was an App way ahead of Apple an Google In terms of making automated videos from pictures and anything you have in your photo album. It was perhaps the first AI video making App. Recently downloaded the App and was totally disappointed. The interface was changed in many ways, trying to blend the App more into a social media platform, which is not what you are looking in the first place. The billing is horrible! You can’t even make a video without committing to a subscription and despite the “free to cancel” option I won’t expend time on any app that if is not what I need will have to devote time on canceling subscriptions. It was a great App, so sorry for what they made out of it.
This trash app cant do anything it says it can
by PixL_Acsam on 2018/11/15 20:30
This app says that it can edit and make videos and movies professionally, but I tried it and it doesnt even let you set a specific order for the clips you use, it just randomly plays them out of order. All I want is to cut portions of a video but this piece of trash expects me to pay $25 a month for a version that adds even more useless crap. If I am expected to pay for trash editing then I might as well throw all my life savings into a fire, there really is no difference in this case. Take away the subscription crap, then I will consider using this cheap, good for nothing app. Hope the Magisto CEO are having fun writing fake reviews about how fun this app is, because I can clearly see that this cant do anything more than just screw up your videos.
Subscribe and they'll show you all the templates you CAN'T use.
by ptezco on 2019/04/12 19:27
I’m also sick and tired about not being able to filter outer the filters I am not subscribed to. I am ALREADY PAYING MONEY for this thing. It is frustrating the sensation of paying and not having access to a bunch of stuff. I know that’s the way things are but that doesn't have to be rubbing it in on my face EVERY TIME I try to make a video. Just put a filter: I pay for the so-called PREMIUM. IT's $5 a month. Not nothing. A great deal of money if you ask me. I deserve to have clean access to the stuff I have access to. The product itself is worth paying for it. What is annoying and frustrating is the aggressive marketing tactics they use to entice you to upgrade.
Needs a music upgrade
by very, very useful on 2017/12/28 12:46
I use this app for a lot of things. I have the full professional upgrade. For the most part, this app does everything I need. The only downside, for me, seeing how much I use the app, is that more editing styles are needed. I would also strongly encourage the creators of this app to allow music from the users personal iTunes account. A lot of the music available works great with the videos. Again, for how frequently it’s used, Videos start to get repetitive without more editing and music selections.
Okay...
by Drewawesome on 2018/05/28 22:18
Overall I like the concept of it and I do enjoy it, have some issues. First, it doesn’t put the pictures where you would expect them to be. Also if you have more than one clip it’s not always in the order you’d think it was in. If people are actually making your videos they should make your videos make since, and putting clips in weird orders, putting pictures in wrong spots, is not the way to do it. Also I wish you didn’t have to pay to make your minutes longer than a minute and a half, and the only way you can make them longer is by going premium! I wish this app was just a little thought out better, and it would be nice if it where updated
Family Memories
by Patsylee321 on 2017/09/21 17:46
This app is an easy, quick way to share special family moments! I love that I can add music from my own playlist! The app provides a great selection of themes and allows me to choose a length that is easy to share on Facebook to share with friends. I have used it with my preschool class to share with parents, adding just the right song that demonstrates the new concept we are learning and the students actively involved in learning activities! The students love seeing their movie as well.
Pretty good
by reviewer 3377737777 on 2019/07/13 23:50
I liked the app a lot. The transitions and music were great. The part of it that made the video for you would be perfect for someone who didn’t want to spend too much time on it. However, for my purposes, I wanted to control it more and edit it and make the video myself. I don’t know if it’s just me and I’m not navigating the website well enough, but those are my thoughts. Also, I wish that I could make the amount of time spent on each photo a little greater. But my complaints are specific to only one project, and I think that for anything else, this app would be perfect!
Scam Don’t Do It!
by The GTR Guy on 2019/02/24 04:08
I barely tried the app itself because I noticed the negative reviews right after I did the free subscription. Of course, I was then stuck like the many others in the reviews. It took me forever to get around the scam of unsubscribing. Real slick scam to have an unsubscribe button in the app that doesn’t truly unsubscribe you. Had to go into itunes account and kill it there under the subscriptions section. Don’t know why Apple allows this garbage but I’ll have to watch my account for the next few months to make sure they don’t hit me like they did others. I’m never loading a new app again before reading the reviews! You have been warned! Seems like they found a way to give themselves a nice star rating to fool you too. These guys are good.
Not a video editing app! Beware
by Real Thinkscape on 2018/10/04 22:46
You upload all your private videos/photos to some company's servers. This is a front for a website that generates montages from your clips with some effects added. When you upload, you have to accept a long terms of service agreement document, written by lawyers, in a language that will make you cringe. Basically you give away your videos and hope for the best... If you're fine with that, expect to wait for hours for your HD and 4k videos to finish uploading... Oh and also don't expect any decent resolution results - they limit the output resolution to laughable SD, or if you pay heaps you get 720p (like it's 2010 again)... Or you can pay even more for "business" (!?) to get the privilege to download a last-gen 1080p version.
An amazing app
by 2C3p2S4 on 2018/11/27 20:14
It is an amazing app and I love it, it has everything that I need to make top notch looking edited videos that have gotten praise great praise. The only thing that I don’t like is the music choices that they offer, they are not the best but when you look you could find one you could work with. I just wish that there were more options where you could search and choose the exact song that you want. Otherwise it is a grade A+ app in my book and I would recommend it to anyone.
meh..
by mrsvle on 2018/03/14 08:31
Not sure you can really purchase creativity. Effects are canned and cliche, music is bland and innocuous. And the constant pressure to upgrade is obscene. Also the free tryout version is so limited you’re not inspired to upgrade to the “Professional” version which lets you do incredibly amazing things like change the order of your pictures and add a logo. You won’t be able to download your video unless you upgrade, and sharing your video is essentially advertising for Magisto since their logo will be all over it. In the long run you’ll be much better off getting a real video editing program and learning how to use it. ps. pretty sure most of these review ratings have been jacked
Do not get the paid version
by cat.universe on 2018/02/07 18:53
Too bad that this company has such a poor idea of customer service and is only concerned with the bottom line. When they auto-renewed my yearly subscription they never sent a reminder OR even a receipt for the charge. I only knew they charged me for another year of service because I saw the charge on my credit card. When I asked for a refund with the understanding that I’d circle back in a couple of months for another year of service at that time. they couldn’t be flexible or refund me even though I’ve been a paying customer and fan of the app. Even a great paid service isn’t worth it when the company doesn’t demonstrate willingness to work with loyal customers. Alas, a short sighted decision on their part.
Wont save and play the photos i want
by thewitchhazel on 2018/11/06 13:56
So, since downloading this app lastweek. I feel like a pro in using this app. Its a lot of work but this app has a great future in photo/video slideshow making. 1 thing that really really bothers me is when i edit the movie i made, it wont show the photos i added. For the nth time it shows the photos i dont want instead of the new ones i added. I keep on editing the movie but it seems it has its own stubborn mind on what my movie should look like. It’s annoying. Please fix. Oh and please add a delete button for when you edit the movie.
I love this app!!!
by paris prince 101 on 2018/04/14 20:16
I love this app sadly I don’t have it right now cause I got a new phone.i love this app because I’m able to do about everything I want to edit a make on this app and I love how we have an option to have one for work or just a plain account I also love how on the app about every month or so it makes me a edit and also how we are able to see other peoples feed the one thing I don’t like about this app witch is why I gave it 4 stars is because you can’t do cool effects to the camera witch is like the video is shaking and that type of stuff
Not easy to operate and difficult to cancel
by no way 22 on 2018/10/16 15:23
I uploaded 72 photos. It did not tell me that it was too many. It automatically condensed my photos and did not include all of my photos. The editing options are very difficult and not easy to operate. So I never managed to make the video the way I wanted with all photos. Then I tried to cancel. Which there are multiple steps in order to cancel. You have to cancel it in the app. Then go to your Apple ID settings and unsubscribe to which I’m still unsure if I’m successfully cancelled. They get you to sign up for a free trial then will automatically charge you if you don’t unsubscribe but I can’t unsubscribe successfully. VERY CROOKED way of doing things especially when I’m not even satisfied with the apps function.
What is going on?!
by Benopben on 2018/11/22 05:17
I used to love this app, but had no need to use for the las year or so. This week I decided to make a video with pix and vids from a recent trip and OMG how frustrating this app has become. I add certain pix and the end result is never correct. They keep repeating some images and completely not showing others. I have to keep editing the video and it’s never what I ask for. After about 30 tries (no exaggeration) it’s still not making the video collage needed. It seems like the app completely isn’t capable of “memorizing” the pix I add and it’s just doing its own thing. Definitely not worth 30$/month... wouldn’t even pay 30$/year. Unsubscribed 👎👎👎
This app has a lot of work to do.
by .._Julia_.. on 2019/01/21 16:48
This app is honestly not my favorite.... I don’t really understand how to edit and WHY I HAVE TO PAY FOR THE “PRO” FEATURE. I mean, I’m probably never gonna learn how to edit with this app, because it is not the best teacher. I made one video, and let the app do the editing. And seriously, I don’t get why we have to pay for the pro feature which is basically the full app. You either make the app free, or you make the whole app cost money. I’m certainly not going to waste my money on an app I don’t know how to use. It’s like saying, only people who pay every month can get everything on the menu at a restaurant. Do you get what I am saying? This app is not my style and I don’t anyone could talk me into using it again.
SCAM - No way to cancel “free” trial
by Magramada on 2019/04/21 08:11
I subscribed for free trial and I did not like the app. It won’t use every picture you select (it seems to have an algorithm that “smartly” selects for you) so it was not what I was looking for, since I like to do the selection on my own. I then tried to unsubscribe in the app and it tells you that you cannot do that on the app but that it needs to be done on your Apple ID. Problem is the Magisto App does NOT register in Apple, so there NO WAY to UNSUBSCRIBE given it will not appear on your Apple ID subscriptions. Apple says to contact developer but developer does not have contact details in the App Store. Brilliant way of continue to charge you 29 a month for an App you do not want. PLEASE ANSWER ME AND UNSUBSCRIBE ME FROM “FREE” TRIAL, before I take this to Social Media.

I spent so much time on a video i was making just to know in the end i cant even save it without paying. I havent ever really had this problem before so for it to happen with this app shows that they just scammin to waste time
So shady!
by mx2891 on 2019/07/22 00:51
I signed up for a free trial with no knowledge of knowing that I would be getting charged $30 a month for something I don’t use. READ THE FINE PRINT
Gotta pay
by wtfftssbaa on 2019/07/21 21:57
You can only do 25 seconds and use their music unless you have some downloaded to your phone. And you can only use 10 pictures or a 25 second video unless you pay $25 a month. Scam and Boring.

Super expensive not worth it.
by A honest usert on 2019/07/21 18:24
Today i just browsed around this app for a couple minutes, when it first gave me the option to join the 7 day trial i hit back because i do not like subscriptions, apparently it still let me use the app still and my sole purpose was to edit a small quick slideshow with my pictures that i could download. After like a 5 minute wait i tried downloading it and it says it wants a whole dollar for just a download?? It’s like you can’t really use the app for free except upload pictures or videos for other people on the app. When i tried to confirm that my account was not being charged i went to the settings in the app and tried to see if i was in the subscription.. i hit it serveral times and it did not load in. This was sketchy at first but i just thought it’s because i don’t have a subscription in this app maybe so i went to my apple id subscriptions and it said i had none.. i better not get charged 20$ for this app because it is not worth it at all.. you have amateur editing and features, most edits in this app you can do in a free one. I do not like this app it was a waste of time. In the description you guys should add all the fees included in the app.

App Issues
by Real time critic on 2019/07/15 23:27
Since recent update, none of my new latest Magisto made videos have been able to load onto Videoshop app and iWatermark+ app. Says loading error. It’s not them. It’s magisto. I suspect there is a code preventing this. Fix immediately please.

Under the impression I could use my music from iTunes! Wrong. Ugh 😑 other than that it’s okay if you want a video of just pictures.
Don’t download!!! Costs $30 a month.
by Amy T 1975 on 2019/07/15 06:10
I downloaded this thinking it was free and didn’t read the fine print. Used it to make one video. Now, I just noticed I’ve been charged $30 a month for 4 months. I never would have downloaded it knowing that.
Needs improvement
by katvega23 on 2019/07/14 20:49
I’d prefer if I could do most of the editing with the pictures and how I want them set up plus some of the photos that was a group photo only captured two or one face
Beware
by kelkelfrancis on 2019/07/14 17:15
Signed up for the free trial. Was charged $35. Contacted Magisto and Apple and can not get a refund. Way too expensive for what you are getting. Just be careful and do not let the trial end because you will get screwed.
It’s nice but not $30/month nice
by TumbleBumbleatNight on 2019/07/14 12:15
I’m not really seeing what this does over other similar apps that makes it so pricey. While I understand the reasons many developers are moving to a subscription model, I do NOT understand what makes this app worth $30/month. In fact, I don’t think I’d pay that much for any app on a monthly basis. It’s absurd. This editor is nice but apps like Quik, Splice, iMovie, and others can achieve the same results for free or far less (with no monthly cost). I would consider this app if the price was more like $20/yr, or a couple of dollars a month, but the current price is just too high.

Good by just at the beginning
by JennyG.1986 on 2019/07/13 20:13
It’s a nifty little app at the beginning. Until after you’ve paid for their premium and realize they never add anything new to their app. After 5 videos you’re out of options to make things new and specific. Their “professional” package is extremely expensive when other video editing apps that are FREE offer so much more. Maybe if they would add new filters every month it would be worth the price. Or if they treated their premium subscriptions better.

Very deceptive app
by Ishalovestheworld on 2019/07/12 11:39
The app was on a monthly renewal and used frequently when first downloaded. Didn’t use as much in last few months but continued to pay the monthly with last payment on June 20th. Went in on July 11th and had to download the app due to extended non-use. No option to download but an option to do a 7-day free trial. Needed to edit a video made in the app but did not intend to continue. Next day on July 12th I was charged $79.99 for a year. Apple support reversed it but spent a half hour trying to fix this and finally told Apple it needs to review the apps deceptive trade practices. Buying apps on Apple have never been an issue until now. What a horrible customer experience. Stay away from this app it’s not worth the headache.

by jaseinatl on 2019/07/11 07:47
For crying out loud I can’t believe this app ignores the hardware button used to mute the iPhone. What is up with that? The only other app I know of with this little respect for someone’s desire to remain silent is Skype and we all know what garbage that is. Apple has standards, how could this get published? Nearly lost my job starting your app during a presentation. Thanks.
Buyer Beware
by TELjr60 on 2019/07/10 16:17
I wanted to try this program out so I signed I signed up for it. I since discovered it is not working for our company and I have tried to cancel. They have made it extremely impossible to cancel, thus continuing their monthly charge. I finally reach a live person who stated she would cancel my plan. That has not happened and I am still getting monthly debits from my account. This is a scam and once they lock you in, I am wondering if I’ll ever get out.
Do not get if you would like to save your video

I downloaded this program hoping it was something else, then deleted it immediately. Still, they billed me $30 and wouldn’t allow for a refund within an hour of the transaction 🙄. So annoying. Just make sure you ‘cancel subscription’ of these tricky trial / download ****faces. Cheerio
It’s great!
by 李生哥 on 2019/07/08 22:22
I like the app and it’s great! I do recommend this app but, I wish I could add more photos without getting premium because I get my money from YouTube and I don’t get money from anyone unless I find it from the ground, I will still use it but my videos won’t be that great.
Lost its appeal for the price
by MilehighMe on 2019/07/08 17:09
I was a huge fan of this app in the beginning for its ease and quality production. I’ve been using like 3 years, but the price is no longer worth the lack of flexibility. I am not willing to upgrade to the business version in order to better create the order/storyboard for my videos. I may just switch back to iMovie as it’s features and auto editing is becoming comparable.

I went on this app all happy saying that I will use this app to edit videos and this must be a good app, but then I’m looking at the reviews. And I’m not so sure anymore but I go ahead and download it anyways. So I’m on the app and I’m searching my videos I only put one picture and one video the video was only 11 seconds long. So I want to go press the done button to get start anything. But I couldn’t because it wouldn’t let me present. It said that I needed either five photos and that video or either a minute long video and that photo and I’m like nope I’m automatically deleting this.
Will steal your money !!! DO NOT DOWNLOAD

by cambam3502 on 2019/07/05 23:49
It won’t download the vids I created, it says downloading, but it’s not, it has been doing that for five days, it was really fun to create them, and look at other peoples vids, but it won’t work and download mine. I hope you can fix this, it might just be my phone though, if not it’s all chill, it seems to be working for other people tho.... It’s probably not ur fault, over all, pretty great app...
Removing features
by Losthero on 2019/07/05 07:32
This was a nice little app. I was surprised to see that the publisher saw fit to reduced the level of functionality in the app and packaged it as an update. Prior to that action I really had nothing bad to say about this app.
Congrats and Sugestion

Don't Start Free Trial
by Dopeschmidty on 2019/07/03 15:15
It's not worth your time or your money. I sat there trying to figure out how to even use the app before I realized that it has absolute terrible graphic edits and sounds. Don't bother. I forgot about this app after day one of use, and low and behold I had to start a free trial just to evenuse it. Since it was so crappy that I forgot about it altogether, I received a charge for $32, THIRTY TWO dollars for a terrible app. It put me in the negative on my account. Do not use this app.. the only thing that would make me delete this review is if they refunded me, but I highly doubt that would even happen.
Cancel subscription
by agbalog on 2019/07/03 15:03
I tried to cancel this subscription and they asked to do it on ITunes or Apple Settings. I can’t find the option and I can’t afford this. It is too expensive to keep it
Great

This app did not function it is junk! We cancelled after one day and they changed us $29 and won’t refund. Do not trust this app!
Fix the change.
by Ellie022119 on 2019/07/02 03:34
I use to use this app weekly to make short clips of my travels and life experiences until I got a new phone and realized they changed it to where you have to pay just to use it. It’s too expensive and I’m sure I’m not the only person forced to stop using it because of finances.
It was great! Until the purchases...
by K🍪🍩🍩🍦 on 2019/07/01 23:04
I used this app for a good 3 years and absolutely loved it! It was an amazing way to make movie trailers, mini movies, and a way to take all my vacation pictures/videos and keep them forever without deleting them eventually. But that can’t happen now because you have to PURCHASE something to save your photos to camera roll. For certain templates, I get it. But this is ridiculous. At LEAST let me save my movie! I already can’t choose whatever template I want, the least you can do it let me save it.
What?...
by Adri Mitchell on 2019/07/01 23:00
I never downloaded this app...I just got emails saying that I I’m paying for something that I never even heard of this app till I got this email...How can I stop this from happening???? I don’t really care much about a refund I just want it to stop.

I like this app just ain’t gonna pay for an upgrade doesn’t seem that much enticing to do so overall it’s pretty legit for the most part you get a 5 if you threw a few bones my way with making “me “ pay first like all good apps do. They let you swim in the whole pool then they let you know there is also a “deep in” if you like??
Needs more features
by Big fan mad on 2019/06/26 13:39
I love this app for what it does but if I could put the pictures/videos is the order I choose, I would love the app. Also, it’s so hard to go back and correct photos because they make you go back through your entire photo album to delete a photo.
AMAZING
by nubeeeditor on 2019/01/15 09:10
I am making a video for my boyfriend containing a ton of pictures from our first year together. I tried iMovie and it was a NIGHTMARE, at least on iPhone. I was worried I wouldn’t be able to find another good editing software. At first glance, I didn’t like how this app seemed to do everything for you, but I went ahead and put the pictures in and put a couple random settings real quick, just to see if it was something I wanted to put more time into. The result was almost exactly what I was looking to make! With just a couple minor tweaks, my finished product will be ready! I am so very impressed and surprised in the best way! The only thing I would change is the fact that you can’t put over 100 pictures in one video, but the rest of this app was so incredible that I will work with that and it will still end up being the best video I’ve ever made! 100% would recommend!
Good but expect more
by froggietiff on 2019/02/04 05:04
So I really like what this app has to offer, and as someone who makes videos as a means of income I do not mind paying a monthly subscription rate for access to better video templates. I first started out using the professional version I think it was but then decided to increase my subscription to the business subscription because of the longer length in videos. And upon reading the comparisons for the different subscription levels, your chart did not have a maximum time limit listed for the business version. So I decided to go ahead and pay the $80 and try it out because I wanted videos that were longer than five minutes. But upon doing so the app still will not let me make a video longer than five minutes even if I choose 30 minutes of footage for it to use. And I feel like if I am paying $80 a month that I should be able to have videos as long as I want them. I would even be happy with a 10 to 15 minute maximum length as a lot of the videos that I make tend to be around 9 to 12 minutes long. But I am very unhappy with the fact that I’m still limited to only five minutes when your comparison chart does not show a time limit. If there was a maximum movie length listed on the business version I probably would not have spent the $80 just to try the very few templates that were there. Because I purely increased my subscription rate based off the fact that I wanted to make longer videos
Can I at least see if it works first??
by Zanesworld1 on 2018/07/25 06:10
So far- 15 minutes in- I’m not a fan—BUT, gimme a minute more and let’s see what this thang can do... In response to staff inquiry: First, thank You for your response, it’s good to know that the developers ARE listening. Second, I apologize for the untimely follow-up and upon your notification I immediately searched my inventory for your app to refresh my overall review. After realizing I’d deleted it from my downloads, I went back to figure out why. Instantly I recalled the experience I had, and simultaneously experienced it again. From the gate, I’m bombarded with in-app purchases— ones that actually require the app to work well at all. The selections I’m left with WITHOUT coming straight from my pocket, do not compare to the apps I have used for several years- and that DO NOT hinder my video process by constantly soliciting up-sales. I understand everybody has to make money- I understand technology is not free nor is ANYTHING, however if I DO download a FREE app (and they all have in-app purchases) I want to be able to use it WITHOUT a salesman at every turn. In fairness regarding what your app actually does— for the Novice, unexperienced, super-busy, or just unimaginative person- my opinion is that it DOES make the process easier. For those people, this is probably a good start- for ‘not’ those people, i would believe it’s not much use. Again, thank you for taking time to listen to your public. Z.
Not as many options as it seems
by itssydneycnt on 2019/01/26 22:03
I started the free trial to see what the $30 a month entails, must be good right? Considering the amount of video editing apps available at no cost you’d think one that’s $360 a year would have TONS of options, not the case. The second star is because this app MIGHT be useful for people who have no clue what they are doing or are super duper lazy. You can’t edit which animations are used, or what order all the special effects and what not are. You basically put in your videos and hope that it does an okay job. VERY basic, this would be very useful for someone who is 80 years old and has no idea how to do any editing and isn’t willing to learn. If you want to edit that font it’s gonna cost you $80 a month, which is $960 a year. I don’t mind paying for something that would be worth it, but this app clearly thinks they are sitting on a gold mine with offering nothing extra that similar apps also have. Finagle with a couple free apps, and figure out how to use their animations and music, it will be the same if not better than this app. I am canceling immediately and using inshot, you can speed up videos, slow them down, put them upside down, add animations, music, text, and you can control it all, for free. I believe I purchased a package of animations for like $1.99, which is way more reasonable and realistic for what the app does.
Filthy tactics
by habarsamian on 2018/07/04 12:28
Do not download this app. They make it extremely difficult to cancel your “subscription”. Here’s my story: Looking to get into video editing so I go look for some apps on the App Store and see magisto. I read the description of their app and see that the download is just a free trial and I would need a subscription. I think to myself ok too easy I will just get in the app and cancel the auto renew as soon as I download. I don’t like paying subscriptions and I wasnt too devoted to editing anything yet for a price ( and if I was i definitely would not use this app , the video it produced was horrible). anyway I get into the app and immediately go to “cancel subscription”. I hit the cancel button and go through the process several times and I never seem to get a solid confirmation. So I decide to close the app and reopen it. When I returned to the settings screen I see the option to “return to subscription “ so i think ok it must have been cancelled. Apparently not the case because I had a$30 charge on my card today. And apparently the developer support is telling people on here that if they set up a subscription through their Apple ID they need to cancel the subscription through their Apple ID. However seems a bit misleading to have a “cancel subscription” button that doesn’t actually work. I will get my money refunded.
Want to cancel the subscription? Mwa-ha-ha
by Big Giant Octopus on 2018/07/26 12:51
I faced the same issue as some reviewers below: signed for a trial to check the full functionality of the app for the further occasional use when I need it with no intention to pay for Professional version (as I don’t need it). Before signing for the trial I checked the Terms to make sure on the way to unsubscribe, and it was stated to be done over My Account right in the app. So in a few days I cancelled the subscription the way it was requested in their Terms, however have been billed anyway, when the trial expired! After some emails back and forth with Magisto support I’ve been told that the process of cancellation is different from what they requested in their Terms and refund is also the authority of Apple. I don’t get it, why to have this misleading “Cancel your subscription” button in My Account, if it does nothing?? And why have describe the procedure of cancellation differently in the Terms visible upon signing up? All together it looks very filthy to me. Kudos for the support team replying and doing it fast. Nice and fun app in general, even the outcome quality of the video is horrible. But this billing filthy thing - baaaad, too bad, guys.
Super expensive not worth it.
by A honest usert on 2019/07/21 18:24
Today i just browsed around this app for a couple minutes, when it first gave me the option to join the 7 day trial i hit back because i do not like subscriptions, apparently it still let me use the app still and my sole purpose was to edit a small quick slideshow with my pictures that i could download. After like a 5 minute wait i tried downloading it and it says it wants a whole dollar for just a download?? It’s like you can’t really use the app for free except upload pictures or videos for other people on the app. When i tried to confirm that my account was not being charged i went to the settings in the app and tried to see if i was in the subscription.. i hit it serveral times and it did not load in. This was sketchy at first but i just thought it’s because i don’t have a subscription in this app maybe so i went to my apple id subscriptions and it said i had none.. i better not get charged 20$ for this app because it is not worth it at all.. you have amateur editing and features, most edits in this app you can do in a free one. I do not like this app it was a waste of time. In the description you guys should add all the fees included in the app.
I hate auto subscriptions. Why are these still a thing?
by cdbennett1231 on 2019/03/24 14:06
Don’t be like me, read the fine print. An add for this app appeared on my feed and I just wanted to play around and check it out, so I opted in on the free trial. Since my phone already saves my payment info and such, I did not realize my account would automatically be charged after the trial. I spent over $60 (2 months) before realizing it was charging me (I had deleted the app from my phone not knowing I was subscribed). I didn’t even end up using the app! So, be careful and take your time. If this is the app for you, great, if you’re just bored and decide to click on the advertisement and check it out, be wary of the auto charges since they will not refund you. Personally, I believe automatically enrolling people with a subscription without making it 100% transparent should be illegal, and doesn’t make me believe you have a great product. Great product sells itself, and doesn’t need to rely on people’s lack of awareness. This is just my opinion.
Got very greedy
by BigT54 on 2018/05/20 02:35
I use to love this app but they slowly became so greedy. Charging you for so many ridiculous things that people do for free. You can’t even save your own videos unless you subscribe to their monthly fee, A total rip off I’m done with this app. The blocking you from doing so many things unless you pay. Don’t waste your time or your money, they became very greedy and there’s many other app developers the do just as good a job if not better for a lot less. The latest update put the nail in the coffin for me and I would like to encourage you all to not purchase this app unless you’re willing to spend money every single month just to use it.
Not worth the money and VERY poor customer support
by artc1688 on 2019/05/21 19:50
Heard from a friend about this SW and it’s ability to automate the creation process. Decided to give it a try. The very short version (15sec?) was cute and decided to try the 7 days “professional “ version. When I realized Tencent, Google and other apps offer similar feature and convenient for free, I decided it it not worth the money. However, the cancellation process for the trial version was not simple at all!!!!! I looked all over and unable to find ANYWHERE within he app on how to cancel the subscription! I wrote to customer support looking for help and the response from customer response was not helpful and kept asking me why I didn’t like the SW! After mutual attempts they sent me the link and told me I have to go into the iTunes account and cancel it!!! Also, by this time they have already charged me and now I have to beg ITunes to return my money because the customer support was poor and the cancellation process was unclear and difficult. Try Tencent SW or Google, it’s free and you don’t have to deal with magisto customer support!!!!
Little to no editing freedom.
by Nim Num on 2018/06/06 19:33
I mean, for free, fine, whatever, but there is so little you can do! You have to have music, and you have to have a title appear on the video. I just needed to make a video that was “made together” to post on social media, not anything fancy (well, it isn’t FANCY, definitely not.) I gave it two stars instead of one because it would work for like a five year old (at least on the free one, no way was I going to be spending money on an editing APP when I have things like WeVideo.) I only got this app to be quick, and while it was quick, the video looked like crap, and you couldn’t even edit the video yourself! No creative freedom, and worst of all, it looks awful, let’s be clear. There is huge white letters that must play on the screen, and then you have awful music (which I wish they had a choice for NO MUSIC) in the background. I wouldn’t even recommend this for a home movie sort of thing. Don’t know what you would even do with it. Little editing freedom, and makes your simple videos stick into a box that they want your videos to fit in. Overall, this app wasn’t even comparable to iMovie! At least iMovie let’s you make your own video, which I was looking for an improvement from to edit videos together (not looking to make a horrible home movie, just edit videos together into one price, which one would think would be pretty basic for an video app.
Please change quality of final video cut
by ShennenEilleen on 2017/11/07 14:19
Ur videos look like total dogdoo no matter what you do - Magisto final edit destroys them - even when shot in 1080 for ig or on a dslr hd cam this app degrades the quality so bad.. so sad because I paid for a few months of this but a business account is wayyyy too much money.. I really would need to try it for a month before paying for an entire year - It actually destroyed two videos I made but I had to use them because my time is money - Tried filming different ways in higher quality and it just makes the films so low quality - I'm willing to pay for the business acct if there's some sort of guarantee that I can actually get my videos in the hd quality it shows me playing the video WITHIN the app before I download it to my phone or ig.. I actually was about to jump on paying for a year right before creating the first movie glad I didn’t - I've also written your customer service and no one ever got back to me about questions I’ve asked on both ig dm and emails
Want to love it
by Dustysage on 2018/12/29 22:34
There is so much to move about this App. It DOES make BEAUTIFUL videos. Unfortunately, the lack of controls means that most videos are unuasable in the end. Too often, the software selects clips which are unimportant or draw attention to the wrong things. And almost always, the clips are shown in such an out of order fashion that the video makes no sense. Two quick enhancements would fix that problem for me. 1) allow me to set the order the clips are shown. And 2) allow me to select a hot spot on video clips that I want to make sure are featured. For example, if I’m making a video of my day at Disneyland, I don’t want the fireworks to show up first, I want them to be the grand finale. I don’t want the people in the crowd to be the focus, but rather my own friends or the attractions themselves. I think this is an easy fix with just a few additions to the edit tools.
Potential to be Great
by Rearea1 on 2017/11/11 21:13
This could be a great app if only it would work better without Wi-Fi. There seems to be a little glitch with my app it will not work if I'm not in Wi-Fi. It's also hard to edit you have to go through the whole process before allowing you to re-order photos, delete photos, add photos, change length of time, or make any changes it has to go through the entire process before you could do it again. It's kind of a bummer and a waste of time that the editing is not easy to use. Also wish that you could choose where you want the music to start instead of only being able to play the music from the beginning of the song. Finally, it would be the best if you could make movies over 4 minutes.
Misleading
by Rkjest on 2018/09/21 14:27
Terribly misleading in the descriptions and functions of this app. First of all, note that it comes up first in the App Store with an “Ad” listed next to it- which means they pay for sponsorship and push faulty reviews!! I doubt that all of these five stars are legitimate, as there are so many problems throughout. From there, they push multi-tiered subscriptions on you with any attempt to explore the app. The user interface doesn’t make any sense. There aren’t tools for you to use on your own- you have no option but to choose a pre-designed template. It hardly makes any sense! I’m appalled that the App Store allows a company to push this obvious scam. And obviously the devs are “listening:” it’s more like defending themselves and trying to rake in the cash in any way possible. If they are a legitimate company that actually cares, focus on creating a good product that works instead of pawning this off to us like Snake Oil salesmen.
Magisto is Amazing
by JonD2019 on 2019/04/19 23:52
I make a movie every month and for every holiday and occasion! People always marvel at how amazing they are. But I feel guilty taking the credit since the Magisto app does all the work. I just select photos, vids, theme, music, title and time and in just a few minutes, Magisto creates a professional looking video! I can’t believe how the app is able to zoom, splice and transition so perfectly every time. It’s really astonishing. If I was to use a traditional photo editing app to accomplish the same result, it would take me 10 times as long! Magisto has been a part of our family memory making life since 2015 and it’s now indispensable! Try it, you’ll love it!
Amazing Video Processing Software!!!!
by Seasidesell on 2019/01/27 14:05
What this program does is nothing short of amazing. The amount of work and image processing and video processing it takes to combine and automatically make a video that looks incredibly manually made is amazing. Yes it’s not 100% perfect. There may be some scenes that need to be tweaked. But when I think of the amount of time I would have to spent doing this manually through Photoshop or Adobe After Effects I am totally blown away. Since I don’t use it for business the cost is a little bit high. I used it for my own personal videos. I wish they had an option where I could just pay one fee to purchase it.
Better and Better
by Sirhc401 on 2018/04/11 21:49
I have used Magisto for a few years now. They have come a long way from the few cool clips you could make. Video collages could not be made simpler and edits allow you to make tweaks until you love it. They make great 1:30 to 2:30 min videos to capture our trips and vacations to share with family and friend, plus go back and live in the land of nostalgia. If I could critique one thing, it’s that as they have grown it has been more focused on business subscriptions and they don’t keep/update styles like they used to. However, they have expanded music selection. Looking forward to more content in the future!
Misrepresented
by L💚CA on 2018/08/06 13:52
I tried the free business trial, because it said I could easily cancel within a week in “settings”. I tried it, the video quality was awful and there weren’t anymore options for creating a pro level video/slide show than my free apps. For $30 I expected way more than my free apps. Then, When I went to cancel, it turns out you have to cancel in ITUNES SETTINGS, not the app settings. Had I known this I wouldn’t have done the trial (I rarely do trials and checked to make sure it was easy to cancel), my iTunes account has been very problematic for years. Took me 3 hours to resolve the situation and customer support at Magisto had zero ability to fix it on their end and didn’t apologize for the misleading copy. Wish I had an option for zero stars.

Best App to Auto Generate movies
by Phil222 on 2019/05/12 04:27
I have use this app for the last three years and I’ve tried dozens of different video editing apps and I also use more complex ones like Adobe Premier and this one has always been the one that I go back to because of how well it is able to intelligently choose parts of clips the best fit the movie altogether and the template style options and music options are far better than other apps so your movies are more likely to be unique. It also handles the large amount of data without bugs and renders video quickly. Great app And I look forward to seeing what’s to come.
BE WARNED - 1 trial even if it’s been 5 years
by Mollewog on 2018/06/27 13:07
I recently trialed, or so I thought, this app. After searching through multiple video editing apps, I came across this one and “trialed” it. I didn’t realize I had purchased it until my bank statement showed it. I had no response from this company, nor Apple, to me signing for a free trial letting me know I had actually purchased the app. According to Magisto, it’s Apple’s policy for a one time free trial. Ok. I understand. Perhaps it was in the fine print... but I believe that Magisto should care for their potential customers and reiterate that... or at the very least give a warning when signing for the free trial that it is not actually a free trial. Sidenote - I apparently signed up 5 years ago when my baby was a few weeks old. I had completely forgotten about it. So, my fault..for not reading the fine print somewhere, wherever it is. And for forgetting I had tried a free trial. I get it and I paid the 32 dollars for this app. Lesson learned... but felt I should let others know so they don’t make the same mistake I did. Bottom line - good app but not for the price. You can find better for less $$. I don’t trust this company so I don’t plan to use it nor will I recommend it.
Magisto App will make your family and friends cry tears of joy
by Jumpinjackfire on 2017/12/20 15:46
I don't generally write reviews. However this Magisto app is special. It syncs together videos and pictures making you the photographer look like you are as good of a movie director as Ron Howard. My pictures and videos of vacations, friends weddings, holidays spent with family, Eagle Scout ceremony, etc are priceless. I like to take several pictures and short video clips of 10 to 30 seconds. Then just pick the pic and videos you want. Select a music theme from Magisto along with a title to your movie and Magesto's magic does the rest. Get This App. Enough Said!
I would probably not recommend it.
by The Nightmare Hour on 2019/05/27 23:14
Despite its ability to arrange your content into quality videos with minimal effort, there are a few things that stand in the way of me giving Magisto five stars. The app is unreasonably limited for those who cannot afford the premium addition. However, buying the premium addition leads to renewal the app doesn’t warn you about. Magisto actually makes it quite difficult to access the controls through which one might be able to cancel subscription. That is not the last of the problems, though. For those working on tablets rather than phones, there is no version that allows users to enable a landscape setting, contrary to many apps on the store. It’s these minor inconveniences that restricts me from being compelled to use the app.
it's ok.
by Reviewgirl432 on 2018/04/05 16:00
I was looking for a video making app, and after i watched the video, i was pleased. But when i used the app it said $30 a month, personally, i think this is way too much. Some people wouldn't mind paying that, but others like me don't. I think you should add the price in the video for this app so people know how much they need to pay. Next, I'm glad there is a 7 day trial, so i tried it out, but you have to have atleast 15 seconds of a video. When i make videos, i prefer to put together what i have so far, to see how it looks, and then add on. but mine was only about 6 seconds so far, so it wouldn't let me look at the progress. Other than that, it's a good app. If you are willing to pay, then i suggest it.
Great app
by jmb12031101 on 2018/07/29 06:19
First review I’ve ever done no lie but this is a dope app for makin ur own short videos I jus used it for my first time but I can see things i would like to be better about it but overall it’s a great app just needs a little bit of refinements in all aspects more powerful more user friendly help with things the common person wouldn’t understand make it more bold in the appeal or naming perhaps. Just hoping it turns into an app I’ll love n maybe possibly be able to make money from because there is a business section I haven’t tried it yet
Dropped my rating to 2 star because..
by Maliceon on 2019/03/05 13:31
It used to be intuitive and now it's so random it's just clips and crap music. The #1 reason for using this app for getting to checkout all the new indy artists on the rise. Now it's just a lot of public domain stuff. Also I have a pro subscription and it still won't let me make a long video. Just a short or medium. After more than 5-6 years at the rate of $9.99 a month totaling around $600 one would think I could make a full 3min video by now. 😟 but no. I'm not going to renew my subscription this next billing cycle. It's not worth it. I will be back later in the year to check and see if any updates have improved the experience because I really did love this app for many years. I hope it gets back to good.
Don’t subscribe to Premium
by 123vj on 2019/02/11 15:41
Premium subscribers have no option to edit their videos or rearrange the images, slides or information flow. They have to choose a few of the resources and let some AI or program decide what to do with them. If you are lucky, they come in the intended order. Otherwise, you will see a highly jumbled video which serves no purpose. It’s a purely deceptive technique on their part to force users to subscribe to more expensive professional or business subscription to edit their creations. They should let the premium subscribers at least to rearrange the images in a proper order before its is stylized by their program. Disappointed that I have to pray each time to make a video that things will fall in place. A very dicey situation.
Subscription scam
by The Real Deli on 2018/12/05 18:10
I had cancelled this months ago and realized in an accounting audit that it was still connected to my iTunes Store account. Just went through the cancellation process again and the way that it is designed as a trap to make you think you’ve canceled when in fact it takes two tries and some back stepping to get a message that tells you to go to the iTunes account to cancel, which in and of itself is a convoluted process. Your cancellation process is clearly a trap, and I wish iTunes would regulate people like you from using their payment platform. You may have a good rating for people who want to use your app, you get a one star from me for your support telling me there was nothing they could do to help that I should contact the iTunes Store. Standby your rip off program.
READ FOR INFO ON HOW TO CANCEL
by Maimoon416@ on 2019/04/15 07:42
Their free trial was helpful but it was a pain to cancel everything. ***READ FOR INFO ON HOW TO CANCEL -go to the Settings app -then go to iTunes & App Stores -tap on Apple ID at the top -select view Apple ID -go down to Subscriptions -click on the app you want to cancel and cancel it Hope this helped some of you since it took me forever sitting in frustration and anxiety to cancel the app on time before it charged me. Instead of just saying we should cancel in iTunes they should explain how to do it. SMH. I loved the app honestly. I didn’t need anything too professional since I was just using it for family and friends but it was really too expensive for what it was. I can’t be paying $20-$30 a month for this when I only used it for one project in the last month. I have other more important priorities, bills to pay for. If it were $10-$20 for the whole app, not just monthly then I feel like more people would buy it. This monthly thing is really not helping you guys. Feels more like a swindlers scam than a professional app.
Stopping Payments is a nightmare!!!
by Stormyrose on 2018/06/21 12:33
I was going to cancel my subscription for a month or two but to do so is seemingly impossible. I cancelled from the app, or so thought. When I got charged again I though, “well, I must have done it incorrectly”. This time, I get a pop up that says I have to unsubscribe through my iTunes id. I follow the steps to unsubscribe from there-it’s listed but there is no unsubscribe option. I email support and am refunded $7.57. Upon closer look at my account I find that when I “ugraded” from a $6.99 plan to a $15 plan it wasn’t actually an upgrade. I was still being charged both. Upgrade apparently means something very different to Magisto. I file a dispute with PayPal. They are still looking into it. Today My BANK account-not PayPal is charged another $15 from Magisto!!! I go to look at my iTubes Subscription and it is listed as cancelled. Magisto is still telling me I have to unsubscribe through iTunes and not them. This is a mess! What am i supposed to do to stop the payments-close my bank account and PayPal???? These people cannot be trusted. Not only have I lost money, but the amount of time I’ve wasted on just unsubscribing from this ridiculous app is absolutely absurd!!
Disappointing
by @janicejuvices_ on 2018/12/30 16:36
The process of getting the final result was a little confusing and time wasting but it wasn’t horrible. The BAD part was the video quality :/ I looked through the reviews and saw that other people had the same problem and the response that some people got was that I had to use the same device that I recorded with... which I did and still got horrible quality. Another problem that some people had was cancelling their subscription. At first I was panicking because their cancellation process was confusing and the price was quite up there, but all I had to do was go on their help services and they lead me through the proper steps. Overall, the app isn’t that great and it’s confusing to manage at first.
Not what it used to be.
by TheEgo on 2018/11/03 21:47
I was a fan of Magistro for the simplicity of making a good short video in HD in their early days, it was an App way ahead of Apple an Google In terms of making automated videos from pictures and anything you have in your photo album. It was perhaps the first AI video making App. Recently downloaded the App and was totally disappointed. The interface was changed in many ways, trying to blend the App more into a social media platform, which is not what you are looking in the first place. The billing is horrible! You can’t even make a video without committing to a subscription and despite the “free to cancel” option I won’t expend time on any app that if is not what I need will have to devote time on canceling subscriptions. It was a great App, so sorry for what they made out of it.
This trash app cant do anything it says it can
by PixL_Acsam on 2018/11/15 20:30
This app says that it can edit and make videos and movies professionally, but I tried it and it doesnt even let you set a specific order for the clips you use, it just randomly plays them out of order. All I want is to cut portions of a video but this piece of trash expects me to pay $25 a month for a version that adds even more useless crap. If I am expected to pay for trash editing then I might as well throw all my life savings into a fire, there really is no difference in this case. Take away the subscription crap, then I will consider using this cheap, good for nothing app. Hope the Magisto CEO are having fun writing fake reviews about how fun this app is, because I can clearly see that this cant do anything more than just screw up your videos.
Subscribe and they'll show you all the templates you CAN'T use.
by ptezco on 2019/04/12 19:27
I’m also sick and tired about not being able to filter outer the filters I am not subscribed to. I am ALREADY PAYING MONEY for this thing. It is frustrating the sensation of paying and not having access to a bunch of stuff. I know that’s the way things are but that doesn't have to be rubbing it in on my face EVERY TIME I try to make a video. Just put a filter: I pay for the so-called PREMIUM. IT's $5 a month. Not nothing. A great deal of money if you ask me. I deserve to have clean access to the stuff I have access to. The product itself is worth paying for it. What is annoying and frustrating is the aggressive marketing tactics they use to entice you to upgrade.
Needs a music upgrade
by very, very useful on 2017/12/28 12:46
I use this app for a lot of things. I have the full professional upgrade. For the most part, this app does everything I need. The only downside, for me, seeing how much I use the app, is that more editing styles are needed. I would also strongly encourage the creators of this app to allow music from the users personal iTunes account. A lot of the music available works great with the videos. Again, for how frequently it’s used, Videos start to get repetitive without more editing and music selections.
Okay...
by Drewawesome on 2018/05/28 22:18
Overall I like the concept of it and I do enjoy it, have some issues. First, it doesn’t put the pictures where you would expect them to be. Also if you have more than one clip it’s not always in the order you’d think it was in. If people are actually making your videos they should make your videos make since, and putting clips in weird orders, putting pictures in wrong spots, is not the way to do it. Also I wish you didn’t have to pay to make your minutes longer than a minute and a half, and the only way you can make them longer is by going premium! I wish this app was just a little thought out better, and it would be nice if it where updated
Family Memories
by Patsylee321 on 2017/09/21 17:46
This app is an easy, quick way to share special family moments! I love that I can add music from my own playlist! The app provides a great selection of themes and allows me to choose a length that is easy to share on Facebook to share with friends. I have used it with my preschool class to share with parents, adding just the right song that demonstrates the new concept we are learning and the students actively involved in learning activities! The students love seeing their movie as well.
Pretty good
by reviewer 3377737777 on 2019/07/13 23:50
I liked the app a lot. The transitions and music were great. The part of it that made the video for you would be perfect for someone who didn’t want to spend too much time on it. However, for my purposes, I wanted to control it more and edit it and make the video myself. I don’t know if it’s just me and I’m not navigating the website well enough, but those are my thoughts. Also, I wish that I could make the amount of time spent on each photo a little greater. But my complaints are specific to only one project, and I think that for anything else, this app would be perfect!
Scam Don’t Do It!
by The GTR Guy on 2019/02/24 04:08
I barely tried the app itself because I noticed the negative reviews right after I did the free subscription. Of course, I was then stuck like the many others in the reviews. It took me forever to get around the scam of unsubscribing. Real slick scam to have an unsubscribe button in the app that doesn’t truly unsubscribe you. Had to go into itunes account and kill it there under the subscriptions section. Don’t know why Apple allows this garbage but I’ll have to watch my account for the next few months to make sure they don’t hit me like they did others. I’m never loading a new app again before reading the reviews! You have been warned! Seems like they found a way to give themselves a nice star rating to fool you too. These guys are good.
Not a video editing app! Beware
by Real Thinkscape on 2018/10/04 22:46
You upload all your private videos/photos to some company's servers. This is a front for a website that generates montages from your clips with some effects added. When you upload, you have to accept a long terms of service agreement document, written by lawyers, in a language that will make you cringe. Basically you give away your videos and hope for the best... If you're fine with that, expect to wait for hours for your HD and 4k videos to finish uploading... Oh and also don't expect any decent resolution results - they limit the output resolution to laughable SD, or if you pay heaps you get 720p (like it's 2010 again)... Or you can pay even more for "business" (!?) to get the privilege to download a last-gen 1080p version.
An amazing app
by 2C3p2S4 on 2018/11/27 20:14
It is an amazing app and I love it, it has everything that I need to make top notch looking edited videos that have gotten praise great praise. The only thing that I don’t like is the music choices that they offer, they are not the best but when you look you could find one you could work with. I just wish that there were more options where you could search and choose the exact song that you want. Otherwise it is a grade A+ app in my book and I would recommend it to anyone.
meh..
by mrsvle on 2018/03/14 08:31
Not sure you can really purchase creativity. Effects are canned and cliche, music is bland and innocuous. And the constant pressure to upgrade is obscene. Also the free tryout version is so limited you’re not inspired to upgrade to the “Professional” version which lets you do incredibly amazing things like change the order of your pictures and add a logo. You won’t be able to download your video unless you upgrade, and sharing your video is essentially advertising for Magisto since their logo will be all over it. In the long run you’ll be much better off getting a real video editing program and learning how to use it. ps. pretty sure most of these review ratings have been jacked
Do not get the paid version
by cat.universe on 2018/02/07 18:53
Too bad that this company has such a poor idea of customer service and is only concerned with the bottom line. When they auto-renewed my yearly subscription they never sent a reminder OR even a receipt for the charge. I only knew they charged me for another year of service because I saw the charge on my credit card. When I asked for a refund with the understanding that I’d circle back in a couple of months for another year of service at that time. they couldn’t be flexible or refund me even though I’ve been a paying customer and fan of the app. Even a great paid service isn’t worth it when the company doesn’t demonstrate willingness to work with loyal customers. Alas, a short sighted decision on their part.
Wont save and play the photos i want
by thewitchhazel on 2018/11/06 13:56
So, since downloading this app lastweek. I feel like a pro in using this app. Its a lot of work but this app has a great future in photo/video slideshow making. 1 thing that really really bothers me is when i edit the movie i made, it wont show the photos i added. For the nth time it shows the photos i dont want instead of the new ones i added. I keep on editing the movie but it seems it has its own stubborn mind on what my movie should look like. It’s annoying. Please fix. Oh and please add a delete button for when you edit the movie.
I love this app!!!
by paris prince 101 on 2018/04/14 20:16
I love this app sadly I don’t have it right now cause I got a new phone.i love this app because I’m able to do about everything I want to edit a make on this app and I love how we have an option to have one for work or just a plain account I also love how on the app about every month or so it makes me a edit and also how we are able to see other peoples feed the one thing I don’t like about this app witch is why I gave it 4 stars is because you can’t do cool effects to the camera witch is like the video is shaking and that type of stuff
Not easy to operate and difficult to cancel
by no way 22 on 2018/10/16 15:23
I uploaded 72 photos. It did not tell me that it was too many. It automatically condensed my photos and did not include all of my photos. The editing options are very difficult and not easy to operate. So I never managed to make the video the way I wanted with all photos. Then I tried to cancel. Which there are multiple steps in order to cancel. You have to cancel it in the app. Then go to your Apple ID settings and unsubscribe to which I’m still unsure if I’m successfully cancelled. They get you to sign up for a free trial then will automatically charge you if you don’t unsubscribe but I can’t unsubscribe successfully. VERY CROOKED way of doing things especially when I’m not even satisfied with the apps function.
What is going on?!
by Benopben on 2018/11/22 05:17
I used to love this app, but had no need to use for the las year or so. This week I decided to make a video with pix and vids from a recent trip and OMG how frustrating this app has become. I add certain pix and the end result is never correct. They keep repeating some images and completely not showing others. I have to keep editing the video and it’s never what I ask for. After about 30 tries (no exaggeration) it’s still not making the video collage needed. It seems like the app completely isn’t capable of “memorizing” the pix I add and it’s just doing its own thing. Definitely not worth 30$/month... wouldn’t even pay 30$/year. Unsubscribed 👎👎👎
This app has a lot of work to do.
by .._Julia_.. on 2019/01/21 16:48
This app is honestly not my favorite.... I don’t really understand how to edit and WHY I HAVE TO PAY FOR THE “PRO” FEATURE. I mean, I’m probably never gonna learn how to edit with this app, because it is not the best teacher. I made one video, and let the app do the editing. And seriously, I don’t get why we have to pay for the pro feature which is basically the full app. You either make the app free, or you make the whole app cost money. I’m certainly not going to waste my money on an app I don’t know how to use. It’s like saying, only people who pay every month can get everything on the menu at a restaurant. Do you get what I am saying? This app is not my style and I don’t anyone could talk me into using it again.
SCAM - No way to cancel “free” trial
by Magramada on 2019/04/21 08:11
I subscribed for free trial and I did not like the app. It won’t use every picture you select (it seems to have an algorithm that “smartly” selects for you) so it was not what I was looking for, since I like to do the selection on my own. I then tried to unsubscribe in the app and it tells you that you cannot do that on the app but that it needs to be done on your Apple ID. Problem is the Magisto App does NOT register in Apple, so there NO WAY to UNSUBSCRIBE given it will not appear on your Apple ID subscriptions. Apple says to contact developer but developer does not have contact details in the App Store. Brilliant way of continue to charge you 29 a month for an App you do not want. PLEASE ANSWER ME AND UNSUBSCRIBE ME FROM “FREE” TRIAL, before I take this to Social Media.
