Fantabulous app

I can make videos in a jiffy with Magisto. I just love it ...
Not what I expected
by Most useful app on 2020/10/29 20:27
This is a very limiting tool. As long as you use one of the templates provided it is quick, and effective. But i did not find one that fit my needs. I wanted more control over my transitions and titles. I did not want one with the bubbles popping or leaves blowing etc. I needed simpler titles simpler transitions. And the user interface was not friendly enough for me to customize my titles and transitions. Also it seemed that most of the templates are premium.
I didn’t know it was public
by applestoreuser5557 on 2020/10/29 18:28
I was making a video then I posted it haaa I deleted but it was a bad accident somebody could’ve saw it no privacy and yes I know there’s public and private but still freaked me out -unknown user thank you for responding but i think that there should be are you sure you want it public pop up ?

Very unhappy with this ap. Even when canceled they still charge your account for a membership fee. They pass the buck on responsibility. Not worth having to deal with
Great

Great app. Only thing I would change is a search bar for music. And updated songs.

Great app but has flaws.
by Fairy girl 15 on 2020/10/24 09:52
I love this app it makes my sports vidoes a lot easier and exciting to create and watch but it has uploading flaws. Half the time I will get error on my vidoes and then after I work so hard to create the videos they will just delete at times instead of giving me a retry button. The app has some things of that nature to work out and I don’t really feel like I get enough worth out my premium package. The premium should get a lot more than what it does for the pay. But all in all it’s a great app with a lot of potential!
Es genial lo juroooooooooooooooooo

Horrible broken app
by Smoov1 on 2020/10/20 18:28
I don’t understand how this app has so many good reviews.. after spending over an hour creating my video this app is broken and does not download videos.. besides the fact that it doesn’t have a download progress bar which in itself is unacceptable.. it leaves you waiting indefinitely for a download that never happens... they need to fix this ASAP
Too much

Frustrating
by Rae92938484 on 2020/10/19 15:34
It takes a whole hour to download my video. I’ve reset and turned my wifi on and off and it’s still stopping in the halfway mark. I’m very irritated with this and I have the Premium subscription!
Disappointed & Surprised
by MafGem on 2020/10/18 07:13
Please don’t use this application, at least not before reading the reviews, I was trying to use the free version, like I had tried before, and I was trying to understand how it works, (as it’s not a user friendly one), and please don’t take me wrong, it’s probably a good app, just not for me. I was so disappointed and surprised to find out I got charged $29.99 just for a one time use, I had no idea it was a subscription, and it’s not like the other apps with subscriptions that you can easily cancel, I’m actually having a very hard time to cancel “the subscription” 😔
Horrible horrible
by hoeribek m on 2020/10/17 01:15
I’m not sure how but I can almost assure my five year old subscribed and charged my account $84 which now has my account in the negative. I’ve been emailing and fighting this for a week and still nothing. No adjustment to my account or refund and I havnt even used the app. Can’t call anyone because only contact is email. This is upsetting. People are having a hard time right now and now is not the time to have my account in the negative. Having actual conversation with em customer service would be nice. J
Me encanta 😍
by mother of a little genius on 2020/10/16 19:34
Yo recomiendo la aplicación, es muy buena a mi me gusta mucho, puedes hacer pequeñas películas con tus recuerdos con buena calidad, les puedes agregar títulos, stickers y los efectos son fantásticos, te crea una película muy profesional en segundos, claro hay que pagar!, pero COME ON! vale la pena, yo pago $19.99 al año por el plan Premium, estoy pensando cambiar a Professional, sólo que no se cuanto cuesta al año, en Resumen si quieres convertir tus recuerdos en películas llenas de efectos y rápidamente, paga por esta aplicación, no te arrepentirás. El único detalle que yo le he encontrado es que la música no está tan buena 😬, no es de artistas conocidos, a veces aburrida, lo que hago es buscar pistas de solo música (instrumental), sin cantantes, y es posible que encuentres buenos ritmos que se adapten a tu película, deberían de agregar más música de ese tipo.
Great app!!

Absolutely love it, very easy to make videos! Amazing A+ App!
Nothing Special
by MrsRow3 on 2020/10/14 11:18
With the removal of the b-roll feature, this is nothing more than a cheesy slide show creator. No longer worth the money.
Expensive hidden charges!!
by SandraCoston on 2020/10/12 23:55
I downloaded this app, and when it asked me for a monthly subscription I went ahead and paid the 6.99. Then the minute I tried to edit something on my video it wanted 30 dollars more. I would have never paid the 6.99 if I knew that was only a preview of the 30 dollar charge. Now I’m out the 6.99 and am looking for a different video app.
Great video can not find how to compress
by Zbity on 2020/10/11 13:06
For all those people that try to upload videos and it takes a long time.. you would think a app as great as this would have a place to compress video and not loose Quality. I cannot find anyplace to compress i must use a different app that does it all. please developer fix or add this I love your app
Just don’t
by Jdhvxejvsjbfhgf on 2020/10/10 01:35
I tried to get this because I wanted to make something for school and I wanted to be able to easily merge clips along with other editing tools. I just selected 4 videos and wanted them to string together in a single video, instead, this app cut off 9 minutes of my 11 minute video to only show what they thought I wanted even though I already adjusted everything and they added awful music so you couldn’t even hear the audio from the original video.
Lost Customer
by millracin98 on 2020/10/08 20:37
New updates ruined this app. Cannot select music from your own phone and image and video quality is garbage now! They want $30 a month to add HD images and video. I already pay $20 a year. Looking for a new platform now and will not renew.
Horrible quality
by chrisstilos on 2020/10/04 22:15
Want refund
Horrible video quality even worse platform
by Film_Buff_713 on 2020/10/04 15:16
There are many good features to this app, but it is drowned out by all the terrible things wrong. First of all the $30/month premium service is WAY overpriced, no one wants to spend money like that besides marketing professionals and even for many of them this is too steep. Make it $10 per month and you will have way more subscribers. Even if the app worked perfectly, it would not be worth $360 per year, but it doesn’t- it’s junk plain and simple. Offering limited options for Fonts, and special effects, this is not the worst part- when you export with settings set as “higher quality” , your HD or 4K quality videos come out like grainy 720p or lower resolution. The auto-cuts and transitions are not smooth, and there are glitches galore in the programming, get it together Vimeo.
Expensive

The lying app
by milagacha452 on 2020/09/29 23:50
At first I wanted to make a cool video so I downloaded this here app. After I downloaded it I looked at the reviews for this app and it was going the well so after hearing that I needed to pay 7.00 a month for a video maker. Then I quickly deleted this app.

don’t download this app i literally downloaded it to see what it was about and it had me paying 30 dollars a f*** month even after i deleted?? i paid around 90 dollars and didn’t notice until my mom told me so f this app!!

Not helpful for me
by yrueyr on 2020/09/25 23:46
Wasn’t what I needed. Wanted to make a short video of my dog that recently passed and then add a song that I purchased on YouTube. Well, it took my pictures and put them in a different order. I wanted a chronological order by the age of my dog. I purposely spent a ton of time picking out pictures and uploading in a particular order. Then some of the pictures couldn’t be seen except for parts of them. Then I was unable to upload the song I bought. Oh well, I know I’m not tech savvy but I thought I could figure this out. Spent many hours for nothing. Cancelled my subscription

Magisto App
by rtg22015 on 2020/09/18 15:32
Absolutely the most ridiculous scam EVER. I accidentally even rated them incorrectly before I could get it to show ONE STAR and I wouldn’t give them a single star. I don’t know who or how this app was installed & I have been billed thousands of dollars. The amounts are different every month & one time they charged $449.99 for Magisto Business (1 year) I need to speak with someone ASAP!!!!!!
Brilliant
by chica_momma on 2020/09/18 04:10
Love it!!!!
Cool app, privacy invasion
by D3rper on 2020/09/16 22:16
The app is cool and works well. By I never saw anything up front on the privacy policy that they can go through my photos. They made a surprise video for me and I had not used one of those photos once on the app.
Screen is frozen
by gucciblanco on 2020/09/15 14:39
Every time I try to go into the app it just stays on the main screen that shows the Magisto logo & says by Vimeo. Already restarted the app, my phone & still the same thing. HELP!
Convenient but expensive
by Britt bratxo on 2020/09/15 04:58
I wasn’t expecting it to make the video for me which was pretty neat time saver. But the quality of the video was TERRIBLE. So blurry and non professional looking

Subscription cannot be canceled!
by Fatemeh_aa on 2020/09/12 21:28
There’s no option to cancel subscription. It is shown in my subscriptions as ‘active’ and the only options I have are paying and renewing! What should I do to cancel my subscription? If you gonna refer to iphone instructions, I’ve seen it and cannot see any cancel button.
I hope this goes good
by i will try,ok on 2020/09/11 17:46
I really want to make a movie but for no reason I just need the app to create one. I need to post it on apple tv+,Disney+ and other movie platforms so just like I said in the title. I hope this goes good.

by cefe805 on 2020/09/09 15:06
This app doesn't even let you do edits on your videos. You can't make much changes I don't know if im struggling to find the setting to edit this videos, it's confusing to use
Total Scam!
by The.dude.abidez on 2020/09/09 14:08
I just purchased the the premium version of the app for $29.99 and it won’t let me use any of the premium upgrade settings. I want a refund. Buyer beware!
100s of 1080p videos came out blurry.
by Mdiaz2288 on 2020/09/08 16:30
Magisto was a unique platform until they have recently made changes to their software. The changes were satisfying until I realized 100s of videos were coming out blurry. All that time editing and effort is now lost and now I’ll have to go elsewhere like Canva. Customer service kept repeating options, but none of it was relatable to my concerns. I can’t get that time back and my monthly subscription was non refundable. Save your time by setting one example video and make sure the video comes out with great quality.
Bruh
by boyeoye on 2020/09/07 21:28

Overall nice
by Mary4647 on 2020/09/07 14:21
I was excited about the features. Unfortunately, I couldn’t see my finished work after posting. It stops a few seconds in, just repeating the first two pictures. Everyone is commenting that the video is nice so they must see more than me. Additionally, I wish I picked a better thumbnail. I changed it from the default but it doesn’t change the already posted work. Now I know to keep an eye out for that.
Super great

This app is pretty nice but there’s some things that need to be changed each time I get on I just know the video is going to be great soo ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
The update today broke the app
by josephthebruce on 2020/09/03 17:22
Devs, I love the app and use it for my business pretty consistently. The update today will no longer let me scroll through videos without it reverting back to recents (iOS 13.6.1) thus not allowing me to scroll down in videos. I’m sure you are aware of this bug but please fix ASAP as I pay $30 a month just to have it. Sincerely, Joe
Do not get
by ocfdj ch on 2020/09/03 10:33
Be careful with putting card information in. Read fully. I put mine in then canceled the prescription right away realizing it was not what I wanted. Checked bank account to see they took out 60 dollars a month for the last three months. I have not been able to get ahold of them for my money back or make sure it canceled AGAIN.

Continued to charge after I’d ended my subscription! Not cool!!
They took away all the good stuff
by hwywhedgdgg on 2020/08/27 07:52
Every update, they remove more and more of the free templates. This was my go-to app for the past year, but not anymore. Bring back the old layout and templates!! Quit moving everything to the “premium” section when it was free loooong before that!
No search bar
by ap171902 on 2020/08/27 03:33
OK so I add this particular song to my video didn’t really know much about the song so I was hoping there would be a search bar so I could just search the title of the song only to find disappointment. There was no search bar so I could not find the song so I’m asking if you may please add a search bar to the song thing. I hope that this helped improve your app.
Absolutely never again
by Can't GetAround on 2020/08/26 20:00
Like another reviewer, I must have missed something as I was testing out the app. After not even a few minutes of using the app, I decided it wasn’t for me, deleted it &amp; so on. I use Premiere Pro &amp; Filmora via computer but wanted something while on the go. Not too long ago found a magical $31+ charge. Couldn’t determine what it was from but now I know. Crazy, and that is only for a month of use from what I can see in when it will expire. Apple was no help in refunding but no surprise there. If you proceed with downloading, just be careful &amp; double check your Subscriptions because they will get you.
Doesn’t show my entire clips in the video
by 01als83 on 2020/08/25 14:31
I’ve been searching for a good app for making sports highlight videos, and this is not it. It cuts my clips down and so far I haven’t figured out if there’s a way to change that. If I put a 10 second clip on the video, I want the whole 10 second clip not 3 seconds of it or whatever it chooses to show. I’ve already cut my clips down as much as I want to, don’t cut it down smaller. It cuts off important parts of my clips without giving me the option of choosing what parts are included and what’s not. It might be ok for a photo video, but not for what I want.
Not that bad
by vUX VUX FAN on 2020/08/24 19:03
It’s not that bad BUT I just i have one little problem :( whenever I try to make a video it does this loading thing for 30 mins. I would like you guys to fix it. This app is not the worst tho all it needs is just no 30 min lodging, and more easy access. I hate as soon as I get on to the app it brings me right to this purchase thing 😕 but is not to bad!😋
Can’t cancel
by bwright77 on 2020/08/24 14:44
I need to cancel and it won’t let me! I didn’t realize it was going to charge me every month! Went to cancel and says I can’t! Ugh ruined my Monday thanks

I have been enjoying this app for over a year, everything just changed and now I can’t figure it out. I will not be spending the money for another year!!
Automatically wants to charge you $25 a month
by Nickname19284746 on 2020/08/23 00:34
You enroll for a week long free trial, but it’s not transparent enough about the plan you want to enroll in. The cheapest is $1.99, but the app doesn’t give you the option to choose a plan and smacks you a “professional” $25 monthly fee. It’s done so fast and sleek that feels like a scam. It doesn’t feel honest.
Don’t download this app
by Ayleen ortiz on 2020/08/22 21:37

Cool app, needs to update video and photo quality
by notnot2020 on 2020/08/19 01:54
Cool app the video quality isn’t good. Will cancel this app. For $30 a month I would expect great quality video and photo quality
Not liking the new look
by CVT0987 on 2020/08/19 00:36
I was using Magistro for years, but after the updates this will be my last month. I dislike that the old templates &amp; features were removed. In addition, when now sampling the music it bounces back to the top of the menu as I’m scrolling. Sadly, my go to app no longer works for me. Time to try something else.
Nice
by APTHEVOCALIST on 2020/08/17 22:28
Got better than almost worse see there use to be a way to speed the video now it’s not
Bad quality
by c-t-lover on 2020/08/17 20:20

The app is good but one thing,You need a subscription to add titles and stuff like it shows in the pics you also need premium for some filters so it’s a good app but you need to buy some stuff
This app is awesome! But not too many things for free trial.
by xprosuperkiller on 2020/08/15 14:42
I love Magisto! But it has a problem. There are too many in app purchases. Too many things go with Magisto Pro, and I don’t like that. So please reduce the in app purchases.
I don't want to pay just to have fun and edit my photos

I automatically didn&#39;t like this app. It had bad quality and tried tk get you to pay for FILTERS find another app!

$90 rip off!
by Creative Flow on 2020/08/14 20:41
I paid $90 for a year subscription and after 2 months my account “got deleted”. I was the only one with a log in and I was on vacation 6 states over and definitely NOT using Magisto as I only use that for work! They don’t have a customer service number and the gentleman I was emailing basically told me there’s nothing they can do. So yeah a complete and utter $90 RIP OFF!!
Disaster.

Memberships and pricing is confusing. Glitches with subscriptions mean I’ve been paying for months but have no access because it shows I have a membership but then won’t let me access any tools until I upgrade and then when I do it says I already have a membership and the infinite loop continues. Support was helping and then stopped responding 3 days ago. No help. No use of the app but my membership just renewed of course despite it being completely not functional. I sent screen shots. They told me to uninstall and then stopped responding when that didn’t work. What a waste of time. I needed to create content last week-now I’ve moved on to an app that actually works ... meanwhile still PAYING FOR THIS
Problems with this app....

THE APP ISN’T LETTING GETTING STARTED FOR NO REASEN
Wasn’t bad..
by ItzRoseQuartz on 2020/08/13 21:30
This was not that bad, but maybe it would be better if it was completely free? My trial ran out, I will not pay money just so I can use it more though, it’s very unfair. If you changed this, maybe it would be better,
AMAZING

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!
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.
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.
intentionally misleading & greedy
by mynamejaz on 2020/01/22 07:11
i recently downloaded this app, looking for a free, easy to use video editor. but, after reading the reviews, i had to delete it immediately. i find it extremely shady and suspicious that most reviews are one star, but the “average” is 4.6 stars. almost all of the positive reviews are clearly fake. most negative reviews are completely valid concerns about low quality content, misleading billing information, and poor customer service. yet, each negative review is met with a copy &amp; paste response that blames the user for their awful app and deceptive fees. there is misinformation in the terms of service about how to cancel a subscription, which is clearly intended in order to scam users out of their money, then they refuse to offer refunds. it’s shameful and unacceptable. the developers of this app are greedy, and charge unreasonably high amounts for the same features that are FREE on other apps. the developers claim these fees are “reasonable”, but how can they justify a higher price for their low quality, practically unusable app when a video editor like adobe after affects has about 20 times more effects, high quality, better compatibility &amp; sharing, all at a lower price! imovie is free and has more features than this app. read the reviews before getting any app, and certainly don’t download this one.
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.
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!!!!
Can 1080p come a la carte?
by Randomremarker on 2020/02/04 05:05
I’m a lazy perfectionist, so when it comes to video editing this app is perfect! (I have the professional version) Be willing to really try it out and learn a couple of simple mechanics and you will love the results. You can just dump pictures and videos and the app does a relatively great~amazing job and if you wish to tweak it even more precisely you can. The videos from this app are so satisfying to watch when edited to its full/personal potential. However it looks like nowadays 1080p is only available with a business plan($35-$70 a month). Kinda disappointing for people who just need the overall professional plan. When u have the latest top notch iPhone and the app can’t make quality vids that match unless you have the highest tier plan is definitely a disappointment. I’m left with the notion to just cancel my professional subscription unless a minimum 1080p was available in lower/mid tier plans or came available a la carte.
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&#39;m willing to pay for the business acct if there&#39;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&#39;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.
Lack of clarification on cancelling trial period and very poor customer service
by XCrystallineX on 2019/09/10 22:34
Do not download this app. I downloaded this app because it said it was free. After making an account, I was immediately surprised when it said that after a seven day free trial I would automatically start paying for a subscription to use it. The site claims that you can cancel the trial at any point, but I have been unsuccessful at finding any way to do that. There is no where on the site that allows you to simply cancel your free trial, and no instructions on how to do so. After deleting my account, there is also no way for me to contact the developers for help. They have no contact information, like emails or phone numbers that you can contact for assistance. The only way to ask for their help is if you login. I only learned after the fact that if you delete your account and/or the app, your subscriptions will continue regardless. I don’t know what to do and I can’t contact them for help.
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&#39;m not in Wi-Fi. It&#39;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&#39;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.
I really tried
by HQuinzelDMD on 2019/07/23 13:52
I decided to try this app and really wanted to like this app but it fell really short. The templates are a cool idea but every time I did a new video it wasn’t good. Even though there is an option to go back and edit the slides, the editor is super difficult to use. Coming from an iMovie and video shop editing background, I don’t get why the video editor is so lacking. To show my effort I edited one video 8 times with different lengths and templates just to give it a good try and just came out unhappy. I would love it if maybe the app was set up like iMovie and we were able to use the templates so we could alter the footage more easily. The automatic editor just isn’t that great. Maybe if your videos you don’t speak a lot this can work. Even when I selected the speech only option it still edited and cut in awkward places that were difficult to go back and edit.
A lot of glitch going on
by Whittier Lee on 2019/10/26 02:05
I have been working on this video for 3 days already and I cannot finished it because of this glitches on Magisto from replacing a photo (not replacing the photo that I want ) or even uploading a new one whether it’s from my own photo library or from their istock folder. Saving the video file is a huge huge disappointment as after I spent about 4hrs making a video , it didn’t saved actually at this time 7hrs after I tried to saved it, it was still in that status of waiting for few minutes and will notify me when it’s ready. This app is SO EXPENSIVE! And this is what I’m gonna get? I never paid an expensive app before , I trusted that this app is superb but it was a HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT , HUGE WASTE OF TIME MAKING MY VIDEO THAT DID NOT SAVE AND HUGE WASTE OF MONEY AND I actually would like to demand a refund for this app but I’m gonna figure that out later on. NOT WORTH YOUR MONEY!
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!
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.
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!
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&#39;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&#39;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.
Horrible video quality even worse platform
by Film_Buff_713 on 2020/10/04 15:16
There are many good features to this app, but it is drowned out by all the terrible things wrong. First of all the $30/month premium service is WAY overpriced, no one wants to spend money like that besides marketing professionals and even for many of them this is too steep. Make it $10 per month and you will have way more subscribers. Even if the app worked perfectly, it would not be worth $360 per year, but it doesn’t- it’s junk plain and simple. Offering limited options for Fonts, and special effects, this is not the worst part- when you export with settings set as “higher quality” , your HD or 4K quality videos come out like grainy 720p or lower resolution. The auto-cuts and transitions are not smooth, and there are glitches galore in the programming, get it together Vimeo.
Nothing In The Music “library”
by cosmiic_piink on 2020/03/07 16:42
Honestly I saw the reviews on this app saying that it’s not that good. I thought “Well it may have updated” or “They may be overreacting”, so I downloaded it. When I got on I thought that it didn’t look that bad. When I looked through the music “gallery” I found honestly nothing that I liked. I thought that I could find real songs that I liked for example, “Yellow Hearts”. When I kept scrolling I found again, nothing I liked. So I am most likely going to delete this app and find a different one. Please try to add some real songs and maybe some BTS songs. Thank you for reading, this app needs improvement on songs. Hope you have a nice day. (A few minutes after): oh and btw! I just made a stupid video, and just saying it’s not very good! :\ I can’t even add the video to the app I wanted to add it to! WASTE OF TIME!
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&#39;t mind paying that, but others like me don&#39;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&#39;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&#39;t let me look at the progress. Other than that, it&#39;s a good app. If you are willing to pay, then i suggest it.
EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED WITH THE CHANGES
by Sheenalee1229 on 2019/11/15 22:40
I’ve used this app to make a few videos for awhile now and bought the subscription last month for premium where it was easy to see which templates I could use but now, every template I click on says I need to upgrade. This new change is very deceptive and I feel like I wasted my $ on the premium, only to be hustled into buying a more expensive subscription that I can’t even try to see what the upgrade is all about! Before they were reasonably priced and now this app is worthless unless you’re wanting to spend a lot of $ on their subscription, which will probably change again and be even more expensive. There’s also no phone support so you have to wait for them to respond via email for issues. I’ll be looking into other apps with better business practices.
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.
Dropped my rating to 2 star because..

It used to be intuitive and now it&#39;s so random it&#39;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&#39;s just a lot of public domain stuff. Also I have a pro subscription and it still won&#39;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&#39;m not going to renew my subscription this next billing cycle. It&#39;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 &amp; 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.
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.
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
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&#39;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&#39;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.
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.
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
BEEARE! They automatically charged me without notifying me
by Smommy2 on 2019/09/04 20:41
I would in NO way sign up with this company or even use the trial. They automatically charged me a subscription fee and I did not even realize that I had signed up because I thought I was just playing around with the app and then it automatically signed me up without me knowing it. A days later I was charged $30 and no one from this company will help me get my refund. I was literally just charged $30 yesterday and I immediately contacted the company several times to get a refund and no one will help me get a refund. I tried contacting Apple and I just get an automatic response that says they will not give me a refund. I’m not one to normally complain but this is the WORST customer service ever - Honestly it feels like a scam to take your money. I finally figured out how to cancel my subscription after searching around for an hour trying to figure it out and canceled it but I can’t get a refund. I sincerely hope that someone from this company will see this review and decide that it would be best to give me a refund since I am not using the app and it just charged me yesterday.
Be careful...
by Fhsrhcdedgvdetyhgr on 2019/08/22 22:02
I downloaded the free trial for this app a few weeks ago. I knew that it would not serve the purpose for which I downloaded it within 60 seconds and immediately followed steps to cancel the subscription (knowing that it would charge me the following month if I did not cancel). When I attempted to cancel the subscription, the app offered me a discounted rate to avoid losing my subscription fee, I declined the offer and confirmed that I would like to cancel the subscription. Now I am receiving a billing notification from the App Store for a $30 monthly charge for the privilege of using this app for 60 seconds. I have since discovered that there is a very deeply embedded cancellation process and have truly (hopefully) canceled my subscription. Beware of this app, it is far from free.
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&#39;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&#39;re fine with that, expect to wait for hours for your HD and 4k videos to finish uploading... Oh and also don&#39;t expect any decent resolution results - they limit the output resolution to laughable SD, or if you pay heaps you get 720p (like it&#39;s 2010 again)... Or you can pay even more for &#34;business&#34; (!?) to get the privilege to download a last-gen 1080p version.
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.
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.
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.

I can make videos in a jiffy with Magisto. I just love it ...
Not what I expected
by Most useful app on 2020/10/29 20:27
This is a very limiting tool. As long as you use one of the templates provided it is quick, and effective. But i did not find one that fit my needs. I wanted more control over my transitions and titles. I did not want one with the bubbles popping or leaves blowing etc. I needed simpler titles simpler transitions. And the user interface was not friendly enough for me to customize my titles and transitions. Also it seemed that most of the templates are premium.
I didn’t know it was public
by applestoreuser5557 on 2020/10/29 18:28
I was making a video then I posted it haaa I deleted but it was a bad accident somebody could’ve saw it no privacy and yes I know there’s public and private but still freaked me out -unknown user thank you for responding but i think that there should be are you sure you want it public pop up ?

Great app but has flaws.
by Fairy girl 15 on 2020/10/24 09:52
I love this app it makes my sports vidoes a lot easier and exciting to create and watch but it has uploading flaws. Half the time I will get error on my vidoes and then after I work so hard to create the videos they will just delete at times instead of giving me a retry button. The app has some things of that nature to work out and I don’t really feel like I get enough worth out my premium package. The premium should get a lot more than what it does for the pay. But all in all it’s a great app with a lot of potential!

Horrible broken app
by Smoov1 on 2020/10/20 18:28
I don’t understand how this app has so many good reviews.. after spending over an hour creating my video this app is broken and does not download videos.. besides the fact that it doesn’t have a download progress bar which in itself is unacceptable.. it leaves you waiting indefinitely for a download that never happens... they need to fix this ASAP

Disappointed & Surprised
by MafGem on 2020/10/18 07:13
Please don’t use this application, at least not before reading the reviews, I was trying to use the free version, like I had tried before, and I was trying to understand how it works, (as it’s not a user friendly one), and please don’t take me wrong, it’s probably a good app, just not for me. I was so disappointed and surprised to find out I got charged $29.99 just for a one time use, I had no idea it was a subscription, and it’s not like the other apps with subscriptions that you can easily cancel, I’m actually having a very hard time to cancel “the subscription” 😔
Horrible horrible
by hoeribek m on 2020/10/17 01:15
I’m not sure how but I can almost assure my five year old subscribed and charged my account $84 which now has my account in the negative. I’ve been emailing and fighting this for a week and still nothing. No adjustment to my account or refund and I havnt even used the app. Can’t call anyone because only contact is email. This is upsetting. People are having a hard time right now and now is not the time to have my account in the negative. Having actual conversation with em customer service would be nice. J
Me encanta 😍
by mother of a little genius on 2020/10/16 19:34
Yo recomiendo la aplicación, es muy buena a mi me gusta mucho, puedes hacer pequeñas películas con tus recuerdos con buena calidad, les puedes agregar títulos, stickers y los efectos son fantásticos, te crea una película muy profesional en segundos, claro hay que pagar!, pero COME ON! vale la pena, yo pago $19.99 al año por el plan Premium, estoy pensando cambiar a Professional, sólo que no se cuanto cuesta al año, en Resumen si quieres convertir tus recuerdos en películas llenas de efectos y rápidamente, paga por esta aplicación, no te arrepentirás. El único detalle que yo le he encontrado es que la música no está tan buena 😬, no es de artistas conocidos, a veces aburrida, lo que hago es buscar pistas de solo música (instrumental), sin cantantes, y es posible que encuentres buenos ritmos que se adapten a tu película, deberían de agregar más música de ese tipo.

Nothing Special
by MrsRow3 on 2020/10/14 11:18
With the removal of the b-roll feature, this is nothing more than a cheesy slide show creator. No longer worth the money.
Expensive hidden charges!!
by SandraCoston on 2020/10/12 23:55
I downloaded this app, and when it asked me for a monthly subscription I went ahead and paid the 6.99. Then the minute I tried to edit something on my video it wanted 30 dollars more. I would have never paid the 6.99 if I knew that was only a preview of the 30 dollar charge. Now I’m out the 6.99 and am looking for a different video app.
Great video can not find how to compress
by Zbity on 2020/10/11 13:06
For all those people that try to upload videos and it takes a long time.. you would think a app as great as this would have a place to compress video and not loose Quality. I cannot find anyplace to compress i must use a different app that does it all. please developer fix or add this I love your app
Just don’t
by Jdhvxejvsjbfhgf on 2020/10/10 01:35
I tried to get this because I wanted to make something for school and I wanted to be able to easily merge clips along with other editing tools. I just selected 4 videos and wanted them to string together in a single video, instead, this app cut off 9 minutes of my 11 minute video to only show what they thought I wanted even though I already adjusted everything and they added awful music so you couldn’t even hear the audio from the original video.
Lost Customer
by millracin98 on 2020/10/08 20:37
New updates ruined this app. Cannot select music from your own phone and image and video quality is garbage now! They want $30 a month to add HD images and video. I already pay $20 a year. Looking for a new platform now and will not renew.
Horrible quality
by chrisstilos on 2020/10/04 22:15
Want refund
Horrible video quality even worse platform
by Film_Buff_713 on 2020/10/04 15:16
There are many good features to this app, but it is drowned out by all the terrible things wrong. First of all the $30/month premium service is WAY overpriced, no one wants to spend money like that besides marketing professionals and even for many of them this is too steep. Make it $10 per month and you will have way more subscribers. Even if the app worked perfectly, it would not be worth $360 per year, but it doesn’t- it’s junk plain and simple. Offering limited options for Fonts, and special effects, this is not the worst part- when you export with settings set as “higher quality” , your HD or 4K quality videos come out like grainy 720p or lower resolution. The auto-cuts and transitions are not smooth, and there are glitches galore in the programming, get it together Vimeo.

charged me for “premium” when all i wanted was basic. can’t figure out how to get my money back so try to use the version i paid for. videos are extremely distorted and blurry with a bunch of corny options making it difficult to have no folder
Works great 👍🏻

Awsome app! I love it
Not helpful for me
by yrueyr on 2020/09/25 23:46
Wasn’t what I needed. Wanted to make a short video of my dog that recently passed and then add a song that I purchased on YouTube. Well, it took my pictures and put them in a different order. I wanted a chronological order by the age of my dog. I purposely spent a ton of time picking out pictures and uploading in a particular order. Then some of the pictures couldn’t be seen except for parts of them. Then I was unable to upload the song I bought. Oh well, I know I’m not tech savvy but I thought I could figure this out. Spent many hours for nothing. Cancelled my subscription

Premium

I upgraded to the premium subscription to add logo and colors and it doesn’t allow me to do either. $30 for nothing. I recommend not upgrading.

Magisto App
by rtg22015 on 2020/09/18 15:32
Absolutely the most ridiculous scam EVER. I accidentally even rated them incorrectly before I could get it to show ONE STAR and I wouldn’t give them a single star. I don’t know who or how this app was installed &amp; I have been billed thousands of dollars. The amounts are different every month &amp; one time they charged $449.99 for Magisto Business (1 year) I need to speak with someone ASAP!!!!!!
Brilliant

Cool app, privacy invasion
by D3rper on 2020/09/16 22:16
The app is cool and works well. By I never saw anything up front on the privacy policy that they can go through my photos. They made a surprise video for me and I had not used one of those photos once on the app.
Screen is frozen
by gucciblanco on 2020/09/15 14:39
Every time I try to go into the app it just stays on the main screen that shows the Magisto logo &amp; says by Vimeo. Already restarted the app, my phone &amp; still the same thing. HELP!
Convenient but expensive
by Britt bratxo on 2020/09/15 04:58
I wasn’t expecting it to make the video for me which was pretty neat time saver. But the quality of the video was TERRIBLE. So blurry and non professional looking

Subscription cannot be canceled!
by Fatemeh_aa on 2020/09/12 21:28
There’s no option to cancel subscription. It is shown in my subscriptions as ‘active’ and the only options I have are paying and renewing! What should I do to cancel my subscription? If you gonna refer to iphone instructions, I’ve seen it and cannot see any cancel button.
I hope this goes good
by i will try,ok on 2020/09/11 17:46
I really want to make a movie but for no reason I just need the app to create one. I need to post it on apple tv+,Disney+ and other movie platforms so just like I said in the title. I hope this goes good.

I needed to make edits on videos decided to try this app out, so far it's terrible
by cefe805 on 2020/09/09 15:06
This app doesn&#39;t even let you do edits on your videos. You can&#39;t make much changes I don&#39;t know if im struggling to find the setting to edit this videos, it&#39;s confusing to use
Total Scam!
by The.dude.abidez on 2020/09/09 14:08
I just purchased the the premium version of the app for $29.99 and it won’t let me use any of the premium upgrade settings. I want a refund. Buyer beware!
100s of 1080p videos came out blurry.
by Mdiaz2288 on 2020/09/08 16:30
Magisto was a unique platform until they have recently made changes to their software. The changes were satisfying until I realized 100s of videos were coming out blurry. All that time editing and effort is now lost and now I’ll have to go elsewhere like Canva. Customer service kept repeating options, but none of it was relatable to my concerns. I can’t get that time back and my monthly subscription was non refundable. Save your time by setting one example video and make sure the video comes out with great quality.

by boyeoye on 2020/09/07 21:28
Yeah it isnt actually free
Overall nice
by Mary4647 on 2020/09/07 14:21
I was excited about the features. Unfortunately, I couldn’t see my finished work after posting. It stops a few seconds in, just repeating the first two pictures. Everyone is commenting that the video is nice so they must see more than me. Additionally, I wish I picked a better thumbnail. I changed it from the default but it doesn’t change the already posted work. Now I know to keep an eye out for that.
Super great

This app is pretty nice but there’s some things that need to be changed each time I get on I just know the video is going to be great soo ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
The update today broke the app
by josephthebruce on 2020/09/03 17:22
Devs, I love the app and use it for my business pretty consistently. The update today will no longer let me scroll through videos without it reverting back to recents (iOS 13.6.1) thus not allowing me to scroll down in videos. I’m sure you are aware of this bug but please fix ASAP as I pay $30 a month just to have it. Sincerely, Joe
Do not get
by ocfdj ch on 2020/09/03 10:33
Be careful with putting card information in. Read fully. I put mine in then canceled the prescription right away realizing it was not what I wanted. Checked bank account to see they took out 60 dollars a month for the last three months. I have not been able to get ahold of them for my money back or make sure it canceled AGAIN.

Don’t waist ur time on this app
by sjspice on 2020/08/30 22:25
Don’t not waist ur time on this app, I want able t login or sign in and this is a waist f time for me. Don’t download this app unless you wanna be confused or frustrated easily. This app is one star for me because it wouldn’t let me in in the first place, this is stupid to me and got me mad so I gave up on trying anymore and deleted it because this app waisted an hour of my time.
Terrible

Won’t open after trial ended
by swags333 on 2020/08/30 03:16
I haven’t been able to open my app, coincidentally since the day my trial ended. Customer support is useless. Any value of the app when it did work for me is more than last from it not working now and terrible customer service.
!!!!NEVER AGAIN!!!!!

Ok i download the app and made a slide show for my brother and let me just say this I’m not satisfied I had to make two videos and it Didn’t even upload or nothing and without spending ur money on this app I can’t do ‘ANYTHING’ never again will I download this app😡😡😡
nope
by Thunder Wafflez on 2020/08/29 08:30
i was all set on seeing what this app had to offer until i seen that they wanted to charge the ridiculous amount of $29 MONTHLY, all before seeing any of the features which is completely bogus.
Do not get!
by heyyyyyjo on 2020/08/27 11:30
Continued to charge after I’d ended my subscription! Not cool!!
They took away all the good stuff
by hwywhedgdgg on 2020/08/27 07:52
Every update, they remove more and more of the free templates. This was my go-to app for the past year, but not anymore. Bring back the old layout and templates!! Quit moving everything to the “premium” section when it was free loooong before that!
No search bar
by ap171902 on 2020/08/27 03:33
OK so I add this particular song to my video didn’t really know much about the song so I was hoping there would be a search bar so I could just search the title of the song only to find disappointment. There was no search bar so I could not find the song so I’m asking if you may please add a search bar to the song thing. I hope that this helped improve your app.
Absolutely never again
by Can't GetAround on 2020/08/26 20:00
Like another reviewer, I must have missed something as I was testing out the app. After not even a few minutes of using the app, I decided it wasn’t for me, deleted it &amp; so on. I use Premiere Pro &amp; Filmora via computer but wanted something while on the go. Not too long ago found a magical $31+ charge. Couldn’t determine what it was from but now I know. Crazy, and that is only for a month of use from what I can see in when it will expire. Apple was no help in refunding but no surprise there. If you proceed with downloading, just be careful &amp; double check your Subscriptions because they will get you.
Doesn’t show my entire clips in the video
by 01als83 on 2020/08/25 14:31
I’ve been searching for a good app for making sports highlight videos, and this is not it. It cuts my clips down and so far I haven’t figured out if there’s a way to change that. If I put a 10 second clip on the video, I want the whole 10 second clip not 3 seconds of it or whatever it chooses to show. I’ve already cut my clips down as much as I want to, don’t cut it down smaller. It cuts off important parts of my clips without giving me the option of choosing what parts are included and what’s not. It might be ok for a photo video, but not for what I want.
Not that bad
by vUX VUX FAN on 2020/08/24 19:03
It’s not that bad BUT I just i have one little problem :( whenever I try to make a video it does this loading thing for 30 mins. I would like you guys to fix it. This app is not the worst tho all it needs is just no 30 min lodging, and more easy access. I hate as soon as I get on to the app it brings me right to this purchase thing 😕 but is not to bad!😋
Can’t cancel
by bwright77 on 2020/08/24 14:44

Automatically wants to charge you $25 a month
by Nickname19284746 on 2020/08/23 00:34
You enroll for a week long free trial, but it’s not transparent enough about the plan you want to enroll in. The cheapest is $1.99, but the app doesn’t give you the option to choose a plan and smacks you a “professional” $25 monthly fee. It’s done so fast and sleek that feels like a scam. It doesn’t feel honest.

Not liking the new look
by CVT0987 on 2020/08/19 00:36
I was using Magistro for years, but after the updates this will be my last month. I dislike that the old templates &amp; features were removed. In addition, when now sampling the music it bounces back to the top of the menu as I’m scrolling. Sadly, my go to app no longer works for me. Time to try something else.
Nice
by APTHEVOCALIST on 2020/08/17 22:28
Got better than almost worse see there use to be a way to speed the video now it’s not

by j 343 on 2020/08/15 20:14
The app is good but one thing,You need a subscription to add titles and stuff like it shows in the pics you also need premium for some filters so it’s a good app but you need to buy some stuff
This app is awesome! But not too many things for free trial.
by xprosuperkiller on 2020/08/15 14:42
I love Magisto! But it has a problem. There are too many in app purchases. Too many things go with Magisto Pro, and I don’t like that. So please reduce the in app purchases.
I don't want to pay just to have fun and edit my photos
by Mishomonu on 2020/08/15 05:06

$90 rip off!
by Creative Flow on 2020/08/14 20:41
I paid $90 for a year subscription and after 2 months my account “got deleted”. I was the only one with a log in and I was on vacation 6 states over and definitely NOT using Magisto as I only use that for work! They don’t have a customer service number and the gentleman I was emailing basically told me there’s nothing they can do. So yeah a complete and utter $90 RIP OFF!!
Disaster.
by Ms. Santangelo on 2020/08/14 19:55
Memberships and pricing is confusing. Glitches with subscriptions mean I’ve been paying for months but have no access because it shows I have a membership but then won’t let me access any tools until I upgrade and then when I do it says I already have a membership and the infinite loop continues. Support was helping and then stopped responding 3 days ago. No help. No use of the app but my membership just renewed of course despite it being completely not functional. I sent screen shots. They told me to uninstall and then stopped responding when that didn’t work. What a waste of time. I needed to create content last week-now I’ve moved on to an app that actually works ... meanwhile still PAYING FOR THIS
Problems with this app....

This was not that bad, but maybe it would be better if it was completely free? My trial ran out, I will not pay money just so I can use it more though, it’s very unfair. If you changed this, maybe it would be better,
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!
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.
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.
intentionally misleading & greedy
by mynamejaz on 2020/01/22 07:11
i recently downloaded this app, looking for a free, easy to use video editor. but, after reading the reviews, i had to delete it immediately. i find it extremely shady and suspicious that most reviews are one star, but the “average” is 4.6 stars. almost all of the positive reviews are clearly fake. most negative reviews are completely valid concerns about low quality content, misleading billing information, and poor customer service. yet, each negative review is met with a copy &amp; paste response that blames the user for their awful app and deceptive fees. there is misinformation in the terms of service about how to cancel a subscription, which is clearly intended in order to scam users out of their money, then they refuse to offer refunds. it’s shameful and unacceptable. the developers of this app are greedy, and charge unreasonably high amounts for the same features that are FREE on other apps. the developers claim these fees are “reasonable”, but how can they justify a higher price for their low quality, practically unusable app when a video editor like adobe after affects has about 20 times more effects, high quality, better compatibility &amp; sharing, all at a lower price! imovie is free and has more features than this app. read the reviews before getting any app, and certainly don’t download this one.
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.
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!!!!
Can 1080p come a la carte?
by Randomremarker on 2020/02/04 05:05
I’m a lazy perfectionist, so when it comes to video editing this app is perfect! (I have the professional version) Be willing to really try it out and learn a couple of simple mechanics and you will love the results. You can just dump pictures and videos and the app does a relatively great~amazing job and if you wish to tweak it even more precisely you can. The videos from this app are so satisfying to watch when edited to its full/personal potential. However it looks like nowadays 1080p is only available with a business plan($35-$70 a month). Kinda disappointing for people who just need the overall professional plan. When u have the latest top notch iPhone and the app can’t make quality vids that match unless you have the highest tier plan is definitely a disappointment. I’m left with the notion to just cancel my professional subscription unless a minimum 1080p was available in lower/mid tier plans or came available a la carte.
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.

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&#39;m willing to pay for the business acct if there&#39;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&#39;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.
Lack of clarification on cancelling trial period and very poor customer service
by XCrystallineX on 2019/09/10 22:34
Do not download this app. I downloaded this app because it said it was free. After making an account, I was immediately surprised when it said that after a seven day free trial I would automatically start paying for a subscription to use it. The site claims that you can cancel the trial at any point, but I have been unsuccessful at finding any way to do that. There is no where on the site that allows you to simply cancel your free trial, and no instructions on how to do so. After deleting my account, there is also no way for me to contact the developers for help. They have no contact information, like emails or phone numbers that you can contact for assistance. The only way to ask for their help is if you login. I only learned after the fact that if you delete your account and/or the app, your subscriptions will continue regardless. I don’t know what to do and I can’t contact them for help.
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&#39;m not in Wi-Fi. It&#39;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&#39;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.
I really tried
by HQuinzelDMD on 2019/07/23 13:52
I decided to try this app and really wanted to like this app but it fell really short. The templates are a cool idea but every time I did a new video it wasn’t good. Even though there is an option to go back and edit the slides, the editor is super difficult to use. Coming from an iMovie and video shop editing background, I don’t get why the video editor is so lacking. To show my effort I edited one video 8 times with different lengths and templates just to give it a good try and just came out unhappy. I would love it if maybe the app was set up like iMovie and we were able to use the templates so we could alter the footage more easily. The automatic editor just isn’t that great. Maybe if your videos you don’t speak a lot this can work. Even when I selected the speech only option it still edited and cut in awkward places that were difficult to go back and edit.
A lot of glitch going on
by Whittier Lee on 2019/10/26 02:05
I have been working on this video for 3 days already and I cannot finished it because of this glitches on Magisto from replacing a photo (not replacing the photo that I want ) or even uploading a new one whether it’s from my own photo library or from their istock folder. Saving the video file is a huge huge disappointment as after I spent about 4hrs making a video , it didn’t saved actually at this time 7hrs after I tried to saved it, it was still in that status of waiting for few minutes and will notify me when it’s ready. This app is SO EXPENSIVE! And this is what I’m gonna get? I never paid an expensive app before , I trusted that this app is superb but it was a HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT , HUGE WASTE OF TIME MAKING MY VIDEO THAT DID NOT SAVE AND HUGE WASTE OF MONEY AND I actually would like to demand a refund for this app but I’m gonna figure that out later on. NOT WORTH YOUR MONEY!
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!
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.
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!
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&#39;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&#39;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.
Horrible video quality even worse platform
by Film_Buff_713 on 2020/10/04 15:16
There are many good features to this app, but it is drowned out by all the terrible things wrong. First of all the $30/month premium service is WAY overpriced, no one wants to spend money like that besides marketing professionals and even for many of them this is too steep. Make it $10 per month and you will have way more subscribers. Even if the app worked perfectly, it would not be worth $360 per year, but it doesn’t- it’s junk plain and simple. Offering limited options for Fonts, and special effects, this is not the worst part- when you export with settings set as “higher quality” , your HD or 4K quality videos come out like grainy 720p or lower resolution. The auto-cuts and transitions are not smooth, and there are glitches galore in the programming, get it together Vimeo.
Nothing In The Music “library”
by cosmiic_piink on 2020/03/07 16:42
Honestly I saw the reviews on this app saying that it’s not that good. I thought “Well it may have updated” or “They may be overreacting”, so I downloaded it. When I got on I thought that it didn’t look that bad. When I looked through the music “gallery” I found honestly nothing that I liked. I thought that I could find real songs that I liked for example, “Yellow Hearts”. When I kept scrolling I found again, nothing I liked. So I am most likely going to delete this app and find a different one. Please try to add some real songs and maybe some BTS songs. Thank you for reading, this app needs improvement on songs. Hope you have a nice day. (A few minutes after): oh and btw! I just made a stupid video, and just saying it’s not very good! :\ I can’t even add the video to the app I wanted to add it to! WASTE OF TIME!
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&#39;t mind paying that, but others like me don&#39;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&#39;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&#39;t let me look at the progress. Other than that, it&#39;s a good app. If you are willing to pay, then i suggest it.
EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED WITH THE CHANGES
by Sheenalee1229 on 2019/11/15 22:40
I’ve used this app to make a few videos for awhile now and bought the subscription last month for premium where it was easy to see which templates I could use but now, every template I click on says I need to upgrade. This new change is very deceptive and I feel like I wasted my $ on the premium, only to be hustled into buying a more expensive subscription that I can’t even try to see what the upgrade is all about! Before they were reasonably priced and now this app is worthless unless you’re wanting to spend a lot of $ on their subscription, which will probably change again and be even more expensive. There’s also no phone support so you have to wait for them to respond via email for issues. I’ll be looking into other apps with better business practices.
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.
Dropped my rating to 2 star because..
by Maliceon on 2019/03/05 13:31
It used to be intuitive and now it&#39;s so random it&#39;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&#39;s just a lot of public domain stuff. Also I have a pro subscription and it still won&#39;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&#39;m not going to renew my subscription this next billing cycle. It&#39;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 &amp; 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.
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.
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
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&#39;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&#39;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.
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.
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
BEEARE! They automatically charged me without notifying me
by Smommy2 on 2019/09/04 20:41
I would in NO way sign up with this company or even use the trial. They automatically charged me a subscription fee and I did not even realize that I had signed up because I thought I was just playing around with the app and then it automatically signed me up without me knowing it. A days later I was charged $30 and no one from this company will help me get my refund. I was literally just charged $30 yesterday and I immediately contacted the company several times to get a refund and no one will help me get a refund. I tried contacting Apple and I just get an automatic response that says they will not give me a refund. I’m not one to normally complain but this is the WORST customer service ever - Honestly it feels like a scam to take your money. I finally figured out how to cancel my subscription after searching around for an hour trying to figure it out and canceled it but I can’t get a refund. I sincerely hope that someone from this company will see this review and decide that it would be best to give me a refund since I am not using the app and it just charged me yesterday.
Be careful...
by Fhsrhcdedgvdetyhgr on 2019/08/22 22:02
I downloaded the free trial for this app a few weeks ago. I knew that it would not serve the purpose for which I downloaded it within 60 seconds and immediately followed steps to cancel the subscription (knowing that it would charge me the following month if I did not cancel). When I attempted to cancel the subscription, the app offered me a discounted rate to avoid losing my subscription fee, I declined the offer and confirmed that I would like to cancel the subscription. Now I am receiving a billing notification from the App Store for a $30 monthly charge for the privilege of using this app for 60 seconds. I have since discovered that there is a very deeply embedded cancellation process and have truly (hopefully) canceled my subscription. Beware of this app, it is far from free.
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&#39;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&#39;re fine with that, expect to wait for hours for your HD and 4k videos to finish uploading... Oh and also don&#39;t expect any decent resolution results - they limit the output resolution to laughable SD, or if you pay heaps you get 720p (like it&#39;s 2010 again)... Or you can pay even more for &#34;business&#34; (!?) to get the privilege to download a last-gen 1080p version.
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.
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.
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

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.
