Best movies best professional app

My company has grown thanks to the marketing videos I create with Magisto. Recommend to use it totally. Excelente and easy to use.
Garbage.
by Sgt_Waffles on 2021/02/22 02:39
Thee biggest waste of money. Ever. Not user friendly, and forces edits upon your video. If you have no creative bone in your body, then this is the app for you.
The best short video editor
by Juana Portela on 2021/02/21 15:02
I’ve used Magisto for years, I started before it was owned by Vimeo and when I could add celebrities songs to them for free and no one complained about it copyright blah blah. Now I use the free version and is amazing how fast you can create a short video to share. Here’s your review and I get your eternal gratitude lol. I hope you get bigger and better.
Don’t download unless you want to pay for a year
by Oy With The Poodles on 2021/02/19 04:30
Cannot access the app without subscribing to a “risk free” $6.99/month trial that you can “cancel anytime”. It doesn’t mention when you cancel it, you will continued to be billed $6.99/month for a YEAR. Since I was already stuck paying for it, I played around with some videos. Not a user friendly format with minimal music selections and ZERO editing abilities. Just garbage across the board.
Enjoyable

Great videos... Worth sharing
Awesome App. I love it!!
by Canadian Musmus on 2021/02/14 16:16
I love this app, and I use it a lot. It has tons of songs, but it would be nice to keep adding updated and modern songs to the list. Thank you very much.
Great App! | Not what I’m looking for
by elijah_calhoun_14 on 2021/02/14 05:37
I came across this app today. Tried it, and it’s pretty good. Though it’s just not what I’m looking for. But I can tell a lot of work was put into an app like this and whoever runs it, I think your doing a great job! Have a nice day!

Buyer Beware of “Bait and Switch”
by BUYER CAUTION! on 2021/02/12 06:44
CAUTION when downloading and activating Magisto App. When you activate, the “baits you” for $6.99 monthly (for unlimited everting) but once you start using the app, you don’t get everything and only gives you the basics. So, if you want to use its features (such as branding your videos and using good template effects, you will be required then to pay another $19.99 fee (and even that doesn’t get you all you need. Further, they claim that under Pro Plan (for $19.99) you can make videos up to 10 minutes, but when you upload a video, they say the AI takes control (and then auto cuts out the majority of your video and screws all up. And then I requested a refund (on same day purchasing a direct bill by them for the $19.99 they refuse to honor the request. As a third-party developer myself, I highly suggest you look for another alternative and frown on companies that employ “bait and switch” tactics.
Not a “free” app
by RottRunner on 2021/02/06 05:00
“Free” to download, and that’s it. Everything is $29.99/month past a 7 day trial. Just make me pay for the app up front at that point - don’t waste time.
I like it bur no Spanish music

Don’t Do It!!!!
by QueenWrapz on 2021/01/29 10:57
I unfortunately subscribed to this app, and let’s just say, disappointed is an understatement!!! For $6.99/month at a minimum, I expected to be able to add text, edit font, and at least animate my own photos! Luckily you can cancel, which I intend on doing IMMEDIATELY!!!! Save your time and your money PLEASE!

Stop trying to monetizing!
by shevastan on 2021/01/23 20:42
Your app is not ready to attract people much yet. You’re pushing our your product so hard that new customers will delete your app after they encounter 2 to 3 times of you trying to sell the products or annual plans. Your strategy just made a new customer who had an intention to keep using the app he downloaded but poor you. Be human first. You can be the entire salesman after. Peace.
Creative. Professional. Fun.
by Lilipureza on 2021/01/22 20:13
The creativity inside this app goes beyond incredible. I am able to create the most amazing videos inspired by the prompts provided by Magisto. It cuts my video creativity time to almost nothing and it deliver amazing results. The best templates and the best music!
Music
by D HOV on 2021/01/14 04:51
It would be much better if we were able to que the music to the part we want for the video instead of all the music starting from then being of the song.

So I saw the add and it had a gatcha edit so I thought it would be good to edit/and make gatcha videos but when I select the photos it just makes me leave the app! Idk if this happens to others but I was hoping for this app to be a good editing app but it’s kinda not I found a easy edit app called VLLO
Description is not accurate
by jow1111111 on 2021/01/08 15:04
Did the monthly fee based on description. You’re not able to get into the app and even look at what is available. I was using it for sports and it clearly said it is used for sports. If you’re looking for an app to edit sports video that does not mean you want to put little smiley faces in the video. It is basically an app you canBut music to things and cute special effects. Not for sports
Do not get!!!!!!!!!!
by JDJ-ENT on 2021/01/07 14:53
Apparently, this app is not free. They automatically start to charge you $29.99 a month to use without you knowing.

Nothing like what I was looking for
by jackiee<3 Paramoree! on 2021/01/05 17:33
Cannot simply edit a video. Only makes collages of several photos together. Constantly asked to upgrade. Not into it
NO WAY! Please read.
by coolgirl1610 on 2021/01/02 23:52
This app is not good at all! If you really want editing apps that are free, then download Vixer! It’s 100 times better. Nothing is free whatsoever and you even need to register and pay just to open and start the app!
Great but...
by Queenfoxy1000 on 2020/12/31 23:07
This is a great app! Very fun and many different things to do. My only thing is when I try to upload my videos they won’t load or publish. I’ve done all the updates and everything. But I also think it would be better if it had better sounds and popular ones.
Pretty cool but missing a few features
by ellenlewis on 2020/12/31 21:32
I really like this app. Used it before but this time around, I’m not able to search songs or add voice features. I’d like to see that.
Give me my money back

Used with no permission for sign in with Facebook but did not tell you to charge you $20 right away even when I never use it I erased it up but they took the money anyway
DISAPPOINTING: Why do you need access to ALL of my media?!?
by TAMJ1 on 2020/12/31 14:05
I thought that this would be a great app to use to create a slideshow for my family of our Christmas 2020 photos. But, the app would not let me create the slideshow (even after I selected the photos I wanted to use for the slideshow) unless I ALLOWED IT TO VIEW AND USE ALL PHOTOS AND VIDEOS ON MY DEVICE!!! There is absolutely NO NEED for your app to “view &amp; use” ALL of my photos and videos. That is a TOTAL invasion of my privacy and you should not REQUIRE this type of access to my device in order for me to use your app! I actually thought about subscribing, but I’ll find another app that doesn’t try to force me to allow them access to all of my media in my device. No thank you!
It’s new!!
by kookiequeen19 on 2020/12/31 11:50
I actually haven’t used this app all year, but I’m So happy about the new updates! Good job Magisto
No HipHop or R&B music choices
by Meelah H on 2020/12/31 02:36
I love the way it puts your video together Pretty easy to use It has a hip hop music section but when you filter it there is ABSOLUTELY NO HIP HOP OR R&amp;B which is absurd and kind of discriminatory

Very easy to navigate and use the app. The videos have great quality templates to integrate with your own photos and videos from your phone. I like how quickly I can post my video to Facebook and Instagram right from the app.simple to use app. It’s definitely worth the money.

by Pilot guy on 2020/12/21 16:07
Even with an upgraded plan my video quality is still poor. It looks great in every other video editing software but not this one for some reason. Concept is great otherwise.
Bad.
by Nintendopanda on 2020/12/20 23:30
The free version is only for 60 seconds of video so if your video is longer than a minute don’t bother downloading this app.
This is awesome
by Rag pie on 2020/12/20 16:23
But I wish it was we free all of it and no subscription it would be better. Plz improve.
SO BAD!! Do not download!!
by AHCC1982 on 2020/12/19 05:04
Had nothing but issues, from only being able to add 120 photos at a time, to being told AFTER I did all the editing I was only allowed 10 minute videos (edited it down to 9:47 and it continued to say my video was too long) forces you to spend more money and download other apps.

by soccertt on 2020/12/16 20:07
When I first got this app I saw potential. But every time I tried to make a movie it told me that there was a error and try again. I tried like thirty times and it did not work. Overall if it works I would say good app. But that’s if it worked.

by Anna_Playz200 on 2020/12/12 16:38
Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good app, but I can’t find any creepy or like fighting music, you see I’m making a video for May 2nd 1998. May 2nd was the battle of Hogwarts, but all the music I can find is happy music. My other problem is this is so confusing? I don’t know if I can’t make a video myself instead of choosing from the camera roll. Thank you for the app it is a good one, have a nice day!
Annoying
by Legoboy16548 on 2020/12/11 03:04
The app defaults your videos with filters and music and I cannot figure out how to remove the filters. This is the most annoying thing. The developers need to change this and have the default be no filters. Here is your 1/5 stars for wasting my time.
DO NOT BUY!!!
by Jdo198733 on 2020/12/10 23:27
I’m trying to combine videos for a school presentation. This app is seriously making me want to pull my hair out! I just want to combine my videos exactly how they are in the order I chose without any frills and this app keeps rearranging my videos and adding music and graphics I didn’t choose! I’m so frustrated and they already charged me $7! I want my money back ASAP!! Horrible!
Disappointed

by Kimberly Wegg on 2020/12/09 14:57
I really like the way the video I made turned out, but this app is difficult to use. It doesn’t allow you to preview your video while you are creating it. I also paid the $6.99 subscription fee, but then every feature I want to use says that I have to pay $29.99. Why so much? Why am I paying the $6.99. I decided to cancel and go back to using SPLICE.
Awesome!

WONT LET YOU UNSUBSCRIBE
by tony35# on 2020/12/08 18:26
The app no longer gives you the option to unsubscribe! It’s not user error, it’s malicious. I have downloaded to app and unsubscribed in the past with no problem, but now when you go to your Apple ID, then subscriptions, and there is no longer an option to unsubscribe. I am having to go through apple support to get them to stop charging me!
False advertisement
by EricPolar on 2020/12/08 03:01
If you search for “free movie maker” this is the top result. Most free movie maker apps will let you make either a few videos or only ask you to pay for premium membership; where you receive perks standard membership doesn’t receive. Within 5 seconds of opening this app, I’m hit with a “$6.99 a month, Cancel anytime!” You can’t even upload an original video before they ask for money. Just upset it wasted my time.
Confusing with minimal music options
by Connorrrr_C41 on 2020/12/07 23:41
They tried to get me to sign up with a credit card right off the bat. All I wanted to do is add music to one video and they only have preset songs which I’ve never heard any of them or even the artists. This app is misleading and a waste of time. I would definitely not recommend this app!
Used to be my favorite app for videos
by videoVito on 2020/12/07 10:48
This app used to be phenomenal however with the recent changes and updates more like downgrades have made this a very basic platform that a plethora of other apps can do. I am an avid video creator and editor, all the old templates are gone, the subscriptions is much higher and there is a subscription for everything. The app keeps crashing and freezing and it takes a year and a day to download. I’m not just saying this, I have 61 videos created on the site and I’m very disappointed with the new platform. Bring back the old Magisto please!
Nothing but a pain
by b heenreey on 2020/12/07 10:19
Do not download. Crap product and very difficult to cancel an account. Prompt customer response is about the only thing decent. Of course they only respond with a copy and paste response apologizing for the worthless product like they have many times before.

Really disappointed! It clearly stated I could try free for 7 days and then my account gets charged $32!

Have no other problems doing free trials with other apps!

I had a free plan and I haven’t use this app for weeks. When I woke up one morning they had charged my card 69$ and now I have overdraft fees. They have no phone support only email which is suspicious and they take forever to get back to you. There are so many other video apps . Don’t use this one. I want my refund because this should have never happened.

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??

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.
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!
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
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.
Want to love it
by Dustysage on 2018/12/29 22:34
There is so much to move about this App. It DOES make BEAUTIFUL videos. Unfortunately, the lack of controls means that most videos are unuasable in the end. Too often, the software selects clips which are unimportant or draw attention to the wrong things. And almost always, the clips are shown in such an out of order fashion that the video makes no sense. Two quick enhancements would fix that problem for me. 1) allow me to set the order the clips are shown. And 2) allow me to select a hot spot on video clips that I want to make sure are featured. For example, if I’m making a video of my day at Disneyland, I don’t want the fireworks to show up first, I want them to be the grand finale. I don’t want the people in the crowd to be the focus, but rather my own friends or the attractions themselves. I think this is an easy fix with just a few additions to the edit tools.
Potential to be Great
by Rearea1 on 2017/11/11 21:13
This could be a great app if only it would work better without Wi-Fi. There seems to be a little glitch with my app it will not work if I&#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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
Disappointing
by @janicejuvices_ on 2018/12/30 16:36
The process of getting the final result was a little confusing and time wasting but it wasn’t horrible. The BAD part was the video quality :/ I looked through the reviews and saw that other people had the same problem and the response that some people got was that I had to use the same device that I recorded with... which I did and still got horrible quality. Another problem that some people had was cancelling their subscription. At first I was panicking because their cancellation process was confusing and the price was quite up there, but all I had to do was go on their help services and they lead me through the proper steps. Overall, the app isn’t that great and it’s confusing to manage at first.
Not what it used to be.
by TheEgo on 2018/11/03 21:47
I was a fan of Magistro for the simplicity of making a good short video in HD in their early days, it was an App way ahead of Apple an Google In terms of making automated videos from pictures and anything you have in your photo album. It was perhaps the first AI video making App. Recently downloaded the App and was totally disappointed. The interface was changed in many ways, trying to blend the App more into a social media platform, which is not what you are looking in the first place. The billing is horrible! You can’t even make a video without committing to a subscription and despite the “free to cancel” option I won’t expend time on any app that if is not what I need will have to devote time on canceling subscriptions. It was a great App, so sorry for what they made out of it.
This trash app cant do anything it says it can
by PixL_Acsam on 2018/11/15 20:30
This app says that it can edit and make videos and movies professionally, but I tried it and it doesnt even let you set a specific order for the clips you use, it just randomly plays them out of order. All I want is to cut portions of a video but this piece of trash expects me to pay $25 a month for a version that adds even more useless crap. If I am expected to pay for trash editing then I might as well throw all my life savings into a fire, there really is no difference in this case. Take away the subscription crap, then I will consider using this cheap, good for nothing app. Hope the Magisto CEO are having fun writing fake reviews about how fun this app is, because I can clearly see that this cant do anything more than just screw up your videos.
Subscribe and they'll show you all the templates you CAN'T use.
by ptezco on 2019/04/12 19:27
I’m also sick and tired about not being able to filter outer the filters I am not subscribed to. I am ALREADY PAYING MONEY for this thing. It is frustrating the sensation of paying and not having access to a bunch of stuff. I know that’s the way things are but that doesn&#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.
Needs a music upgrade
by very, very useful on 2017/12/28 12:46
I use this app for a lot of things. I have the full professional upgrade. For the most part, this app does everything I need. The only downside, for me, seeing how much I use the app, is that more editing styles are needed. I would also strongly encourage the creators of this app to allow music from the users personal iTunes account. A lot of the music available works great with the videos. Again, for how frequently it’s used, Videos start to get repetitive without more editing and music selections.
Okay...
by Drewawesome on 2018/05/28 22:18
Overall I like the concept of it and I do enjoy it, have some issues. First, it doesn’t put the pictures where you would expect them to be. Also if you have more than one clip it’s not always in the order you’d think it was in. If people are actually making your videos they should make your videos make since, and putting clips in weird orders, putting pictures in wrong spots, is not the way to do it. Also I wish you didn’t have to pay to make your minutes longer than a minute and a half, and the only way you can make them longer is by going premium! I wish this app was just a little thought out better, and it would be nice if it where updated
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.
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.
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.
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.

An amazing app
by 2C3p2S4 on 2018/11/27 20:14
It is an amazing app and I love it, it has everything that I need to make top notch looking edited videos that have gotten praise great praise. The only thing that I don’t like is the music choices that they offer, they are not the best but when you look you could find one you could work with. I just wish that there were more options where you could search and choose the exact song that you want. Otherwise it is a grade A+ app in my book and I would recommend it to anyone.

My company has grown thanks to the marketing videos I create with Magisto. Recommend to use it totally. Excelente and easy to use.
Garbage.
by Sgt_Waffles on 2021/02/22 02:39
Thee biggest waste of money. Ever. Not user friendly, and forces edits upon your video. If you have no creative bone in your body, then this is the app for you.
The best short video editor
by Juana Portela on 2021/02/21 15:02
I’ve used Magisto for years, I started before it was owned by Vimeo and when I could add celebrities songs to them for free and no one complained about it copyright blah blah. Now I use the free version and is amazing how fast you can create a short video to share. Here’s your review and I get your eternal gratitude lol. I hope you get bigger and better.
Don’t download unless you want to pay for a year
by Oy With The Poodles on 2021/02/19 04:30
Cannot access the app without subscribing to a “risk free” $6.99/month trial that you can “cancel anytime”. It doesn’t mention when you cancel it, you will continued to be billed $6.99/month for a YEAR. Since I was already stuck paying for it, I played around with some videos. Not a user friendly format with minimal music selections and ZERO editing abilities. Just garbage across the board.
Enjoyable

Great App! | Not what I’m looking for

Buyer Beware of “Bait and Switch”
by BUYER CAUTION! on 2021/02/12 06:44
CAUTION when downloading and activating Magisto App. When you activate, the “baits you” for $6.99 monthly (for unlimited everting) but once you start using the app, you don’t get everything and only gives you the basics. So, if you want to use its features (such as branding your videos and using good template effects, you will be required then to pay another $19.99 fee (and even that doesn’t get you all you need. Further, they claim that under Pro Plan (for $19.99) you can make videos up to 10 minutes, but when you upload a video, they say the AI takes control (and then auto cuts out the majority of your video and screws all up. And then I requested a refund (on same day purchasing a direct bill by them for the $19.99 they refuse to honor the request. As a third-party developer myself, I highly suggest you look for another alternative and frown on companies that employ “bait and switch” tactics.
Not a “free” app
by RottRunner on 2021/02/06 05:00
“Free” to download, and that’s it. Everything is $29.99/month past a 7 day trial. Just make me pay for the app up front at that point - don’t waste time.

Save your time and your money PLEASE!

by shevastan on 2021/01/23 20:42
Your app is not ready to attract people much yet. You’re pushing our your product so hard that new customers will delete your app after they encounter 2 to 3 times of you trying to sell the products or annual plans. Your strategy just made a new customer who had an intention to keep using the app he downloaded but poor you. Be human first. You can be the entire salesman after. Peace.
Creative. Professional. Fun.

Description is not accurate
by jow1111111 on 2021/01/08 15:04
Did the monthly fee based on description. You’re not able to get into the app and even look at what is available. I was using it for sports and it clearly said it is used for sports. If you’re looking for an app to edit sports video that does not mean you want to put little smiley faces in the video. It is basically an app you canBut music to things and cute special effects. Not for sports
Do not get!!!!!!!!!!
by JDJ-ENT on 2021/01/07 14:53
Apparently, this app is not free. They automatically start to charge you $29.99 a month to use without you knowing.

by coolgirl1610 on 2021/01/02 23:52
This app is not good at all! If you really want editing apps that are free, then download Vixer! It’s 100 times better. Nothing is free whatsoever and you even need to register and pay just to open and start the app!
Great but...
by Queenfoxy1000 on 2020/12/31 23:07
This is a great app! Very fun and many different things to do. My only thing is when I try to upload my videos they won’t load or publish. I’ve done all the updates and everything. But I also think it would be better if it had better sounds and popular ones.
Pretty cool but missing a few features

DISAPPOINTING: Why do you need access to ALL of my media?!?
by TAMJ1 on 2020/12/31 14:05
I thought that this would be a great app to use to create a slideshow for my family of our Christmas 2020 photos. But, the app would not let me create the slideshow (even after I selected the photos I wanted to use for the slideshow) unless I ALLOWED IT TO VIEW AND USE ALL PHOTOS AND VIDEOS ON MY DEVICE!!! There is absolutely NO NEED for your app to “view &amp; use” ALL of my photos and videos. That is a TOTAL invasion of my privacy and you should not REQUIRE this type of access to my device in order for me to use your app! I actually thought about subscribing, but I’ll find another app that doesn’t try to force me to allow them access to all of my media in my device. No thank you!
It’s new!!
by kookiequeen19 on 2020/12/31 11:50
I actually haven’t used this app all year, but I’m So happy about the new updates! Good job Magisto
No HipHop or R&B music choices
by Meelah H on 2020/12/31 02:36
I love the way it puts your video together Pretty easy to use It has a hip hop music section but when you filter it there is ABSOLUTELY NO HIP HOP OR R&amp;B which is absurd and kind of discriminatory

The free version is only for 60 seconds of video so if your video is longer than a minute don’t bother downloading this app.
This is awesome

But I wish it was we free all of it and no subscription it would be better. Plz improve.
SO BAD!! Do not download!!

Had nothing but issues, from only being able to add 120 photos at a time, to being told AFTER I did all the editing I was only allowed 10 minute videos (edited it down to 9:47 and it continued to say my video was too long) forces you to spend more money and download other apps.

This app is so glitchy and not worth it at all. Constant error messages when trying to edit my video and save it.
It’s literally not letting me
by soccertt on 2020/12/16 20:07
When I first got this app I saw potential. But every time I tried to make a movie it told me that there was a error and try again. I tried like thirty times and it did not work. Overall if it works I would say good app. But that’s if it worked.

Yo podía hacer mis vídeos desde hace varios años y hoy hice uno y me pedía entrar por medio de face, quise hacer unos cambios de fotografía a un vídeo y no pude hacerlo sin tener que aceptar suscribirme a un paquete mensual. No sé qué está pasando, me pidió volver a poner mi correo y lo hice pero me dice que ya está en uso. No entiendo qué está pasando.

Great app! Just needs a better selection of music.
Great but I can find the right music
by Anna_Playz200 on 2020/12/12 16:38
Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good app, but I can’t find any creepy or like fighting music, you see I’m making a video for May 2nd 1998. May 2nd was the battle of Hogwarts, but all the music I can find is happy music. My other problem is this is so confusing? I don’t know if I can’t make a video myself instead of choosing from the camera roll. Thank you for the app it is a good one, have a nice day!
Annoying
by Legoboy16548 on 2020/12/11 03:04
The app defaults your videos with filters and music and I cannot figure out how to remove the filters. This is the most annoying thing. The developers need to change this and have the default be no filters. Here is your 1/5 stars for wasting my time.
DO NOT BUY!!!
by Jdo198733 on 2020/12/10 23:27
I’m trying to combine videos for a school presentation. This app is seriously making me want to pull my hair out! I just want to combine my videos exactly how they are in the order I chose without any frills and this app keeps rearranging my videos and adding music and graphics I didn’t choose! I’m so frustrated and they already charged me $7! I want my money back ASAP!! Horrible!
Disappointed
by dvridif on 2020/12/10 22:14
No way to merge videos! I attempted to put two videos next to each other like in TikTok when you duet, but no way to do a layout.
horrible
by Aestheticxxx on 2020/12/10 01:36
This is a poorly made app, and it doesn&#39;t even load my videos.
Why so much?
by Kimberly Wegg on 2020/12/09 14:57
I really like the way the video I made turned out, but this app is difficult to use. It doesn’t allow you to preview your video while you are creating it. I also paid the $6.99 subscription fee, but then every feature I want to use says that I have to pay $29.99. Why so much? Why am I paying the $6.99. I decided to cancel and go back to using SPLICE.
Awesome!
by sarah 901 on 2020/12/09 01:32
This app is plain AMAZING! It just blows my mind how easily you can make amazing videos!!!!!!!!!!
WONT LET YOU UNSUBSCRIBE
by tony35# on 2020/12/08 18:26
The app no longer gives you the option to unsubscribe! It’s not user error, it’s malicious. I have downloaded to app and unsubscribed in the past with no problem, but now when you go to your Apple ID, then subscriptions, and there is no longer an option to unsubscribe. I am having to go through apple support to get them to stop charging me!
False advertisement
by EricPolar on 2020/12/08 03:01
If you search for “free movie maker” this is the top result. Most free movie maker apps will let you make either a few videos or only ask you to pay for premium membership; where you receive perks standard membership doesn’t receive. Within 5 seconds of opening this app, I’m hit with a “$6.99 a month, Cancel anytime!” You can’t even upload an original video before they ask for money. Just upset it wasted my time.
Confusing with minimal music options
by Connorrrr_C41 on 2020/12/07 23:41
They tried to get me to sign up with a credit card right off the bat. All I wanted to do is add music to one video and they only have preset songs which I’ve never heard any of them or even the artists. This app is misleading and a waste of time. I would definitely not recommend this app!
Used to be my favorite app for videos
by videoVito on 2020/12/07 10:48
This app used to be phenomenal however with the recent changes and updates more like downgrades have made this a very basic platform that a plethora of other apps can do. I am an avid video creator and editor, all the old templates are gone, the subscriptions is much higher and there is a subscription for everything. The app keeps crashing and freezing and it takes a year and a day to download. I’m not just saying this, I have 61 videos created on the site and I’m very disappointed with the new platform. Bring back the old Magisto please!
Nothing but a pain
by b heenreey on 2020/12/07 10:19
Do not download. Crap product and very difficult to cancel an account. Prompt customer response is about the only thing decent. Of course they only respond with a copy and paste response apologizing for the worthless product like they have many times before.

by fuzzboy3000 on 2020/11/27 03:50
I really like this app but can you make it so you can make there be a little list at the bottom of your screen and when you click on it it will bring a bunch of affects please thank you (:

Said I had a free 7 day trial but still charged me
by F1shL1ps on 2020/11/20 06:34
Really disappointed! It clearly stated I could try free for 7 days and then my account gets charged $32! Then I cancel my trial and then I get an email saying I just then purchased it again at the time I unsubscribed from the free trial. So not cool, I had this less then a day! Have no other problems doing free trials with other apps!

Asks for picture permissions THEN tells you that you have to pay to use the app in any capacity.
Don’t use!!
by va.maikya on 2020/11/17 11:40
I had a free plan and I haven’t use this app for weeks. When I woke up one morning they had charged my card 69$ and now I have overdraft fees. They have no phone support only email which is suspicious and they take forever to get back to you. There are so many other video apps . Don’t use this one. I want my refund because this should have never happened.

by verified xennial on 2020/11/16 16:55
This app worked great for a while, now I can’t even open it to make a video. I tried to download a video I made and it keeps crashing? Big time disappointment for an app I’m paying premium prices for every month and it doesn’t even work.

by mariolambgamerlegend on 2020/11/13 13:40
App is free to download. I used my finger print to download and app charged me $7.00! And then said I subscribed to a monthly account! Rip off! I canceled this app right away! Go with iMovie! It’s free minus the rip offs!
Can’t use your own music?
by Lariw7 on 2020/11/12 07:39
Downloaded and did the free trial. Uploaded all my pictures and tried to add a song I just bought off of iTunes but it doesn’t let you. Boo. Canceled the subscription immediately and deleted app.
Best videos
by Nik wheels on 2020/11/12 05:02
It’s like each video is personalized
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.
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!
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
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.
Want to love it
by Dustysage on 2018/12/29 22:34
There is so much to move about this App. It DOES make BEAUTIFUL videos. Unfortunately, the lack of controls means that most videos are unuasable in the end. Too often, the software selects clips which are unimportant or draw attention to the wrong things. And almost always, the clips are shown in such an out of order fashion that the video makes no sense. Two quick enhancements would fix that problem for me. 1) allow me to set the order the clips are shown. And 2) allow me to select a hot spot on video clips that I want to make sure are featured. For example, if I’m making a video of my day at Disneyland, I don’t want the fireworks to show up first, I want them to be the grand finale. I don’t want the people in the crowd to be the focus, but rather my own friends or the attractions themselves. I think this is an easy fix with just a few additions to the edit tools.
Potential to be Great
by Rearea1 on 2017/11/11 21:13
This could be a great app if only it would work better without Wi-Fi. There seems to be a little glitch with my app it will not work if I&#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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
Disappointing
by @janicejuvices_ on 2018/12/30 16:36
The process of getting the final result was a little confusing and time wasting but it wasn’t horrible. The BAD part was the video quality :/ I looked through the reviews and saw that other people had the same problem and the response that some people got was that I had to use the same device that I recorded with... which I did and still got horrible quality. Another problem that some people had was cancelling their subscription. At first I was panicking because their cancellation process was confusing and the price was quite up there, but all I had to do was go on their help services and they lead me through the proper steps. Overall, the app isn’t that great and it’s confusing to manage at first.
Not what it used to be.
by TheEgo on 2018/11/03 21:47
I was a fan of Magistro for the simplicity of making a good short video in HD in their early days, it was an App way ahead of Apple an Google In terms of making automated videos from pictures and anything you have in your photo album. It was perhaps the first AI video making App. Recently downloaded the App and was totally disappointed. The interface was changed in many ways, trying to blend the App more into a social media platform, which is not what you are looking in the first place. The billing is horrible! You can’t even make a video without committing to a subscription and despite the “free to cancel” option I won’t expend time on any app that if is not what I need will have to devote time on canceling subscriptions. It was a great App, so sorry for what they made out of it.
This trash app cant do anything it says it can
by PixL_Acsam on 2018/11/15 20:30
This app says that it can edit and make videos and movies professionally, but I tried it and it doesnt even let you set a specific order for the clips you use, it just randomly plays them out of order. All I want is to cut portions of a video but this piece of trash expects me to pay $25 a month for a version that adds even more useless crap. If I am expected to pay for trash editing then I might as well throw all my life savings into a fire, there really is no difference in this case. Take away the subscription crap, then I will consider using this cheap, good for nothing app. Hope the Magisto CEO are having fun writing fake reviews about how fun this app is, because I can clearly see that this cant do anything more than just screw up your videos.
Subscribe and they'll show you all the templates you CAN'T use.
by ptezco on 2019/04/12 19:27
I’m also sick and tired about not being able to filter outer the filters I am not subscribed to. I am ALREADY PAYING MONEY for this thing. It is frustrating the sensation of paying and not having access to a bunch of stuff. I know that’s the way things are but that doesn&#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.
Needs a music upgrade
by very, very useful on 2017/12/28 12:46
I use this app for a lot of things. I have the full professional upgrade. For the most part, this app does everything I need. The only downside, for me, seeing how much I use the app, is that more editing styles are needed. I would also strongly encourage the creators of this app to allow music from the users personal iTunes account. A lot of the music available works great with the videos. Again, for how frequently it’s used, Videos start to get repetitive without more editing and music selections.
Okay...
by Drewawesome on 2018/05/28 22:18
Overall I like the concept of it and I do enjoy it, have some issues. First, it doesn’t put the pictures where you would expect them to be. Also if you have more than one clip it’s not always in the order you’d think it was in. If people are actually making your videos they should make your videos make since, and putting clips in weird orders, putting pictures in wrong spots, is not the way to do it. Also I wish you didn’t have to pay to make your minutes longer than a minute and a half, and the only way you can make them longer is by going premium! I wish this app was just a little thought out better, and it would be nice if it where updated
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.
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.
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.
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.

An amazing app
by 2C3p2S4 on 2018/11/27 20:14
It is an amazing app and I love it, it has everything that I need to make top notch looking edited videos that have gotten praise great praise. The only thing that I don’t like is the music choices that they offer, they are not the best but when you look you could find one you could work with. I just wish that there were more options where you could search and choose the exact song that you want. Otherwise it is a grade A+ app in my book and I would recommend it to anyone.
