First
Read reviews first!
by Uluvnme on 2020/08/11 02:01
I downloaded to make a video for a class project. I tried to use it as a guest due to I won’t have a use for it after the project is done. It stated that it automatically charges $29.99 a month after the short free trial is over. I deleted after reading that and now have to figure out how to cancel a subscription to something I didn’t use. I should have actually read the reviews first. I didn’t because of the high score rating. Def read the reviews before downloading.
I don’t like it.
by Luis Alexander Plascencia on 2020/08/10 04:33
I can’t even use anything on this app..
Color change not working for fonts.
by HarveyDent2 on 2020/08/09 18:01
I love this app it. The new version is visually pleasing but still doesn’t work correct. At the moment I’m trying to change the color on text so it’s visible on certain backgrounds. IT WONT LET ME SWITCH THE COLOR ON TEXT. I’m getting frustrated being that I pay monthly and can’t get a simple thing like this to work. I would like this correct immediately so I can continue promoting thank you! I’ll change my rating soon as.
Didn’t even know I subscribed
by 👄👄 zubby on 2020/08/07 20:50
I just got home from a year and a half mission (we’re not allowed to use these apps), so I wasn’t home to use my phone. I got an email that said I had signed up for the 29.99 subscription that renews every year. If I wasn’t even home to renew it and I don’t remember signing up for it, why is it charging me? The email says I have to choose to renew it in order for it to charge me again, BUT HERE’S THE WEIRD PART why didn’t it just end last year when I wasn’t even around to renew it? I’m genuinely confused 😂😂 and now I’m worried it will charge me again even though it doesn’t give me the option to cancel it in my settings. Also, I legitimately have no recollection of signing up for even a free trial for this app.

Too confusing to use
Is there a way too change so it won’t skip parts?
by h,kugj,ugj,ug,jugug on 2020/08/06 02:50
The app is amazing I used it for a YouTube vid but there’s one thing I really want too know how do you change it so you don’t skip parts? I mean if your owning a good app atleast make a tutorial thank you for your time

Nice effects and quality of video

It’s has too many option and you will get good merged video quality.
Money trap do not buy
by clashisadumbgame on 2020/08/04 19:16
Like pretty much all of these dumb apps they put one or two basic editing elements in and slap anything else behind this buy me buy me wall You’ll probably have a better time just not downloading at all

The app should tell upfront what the cost is.
Subscription
by asiammkay on 2020/08/01 14:33
There’s not even a free version. Just a trial and that’s it. I don’t want all the extras, just need for simple things.
Like the videos, not the time
by DrssDva on 2020/07/31 20:09
The videos usually turn out great. Don’t like the fact that it takes such a long time to create them- I’ve literally been waiting for hours for one video to finish.
Was not expecting that
by iluvchand on 2020/07/31 14:13
Doing the trial video it asked if I wanted to update with a $6 fee. I said sure not bad I purchased the app thinking “GREAT” I’m gonna make awesome videos. Then when I want to add something background, theme, etc... then Bam!!$29 . So disappointed.
Improved version? Too many glitches
by Lymanomsdfcffv on 2020/07/31 05:32
Have this app for 2 years no issues. Loved it. This new update? Freezes on the screen that asks you to pay $59.99 per month if you want more options. Tried everything to unfreeze the app so I can post for my sons birthday . No can do. Don’t update if you can’t deliver a stress free experience at a high price point! Disappointed.
Decent But PRICEY
by Dhydsyi on 2020/07/30 20:13
Update: So I had this subscription before at a cheaper price in the past but now with the upgrades, some of the features have migrated to the pro subscription like text for example. How basic is that, that you have to spend a fortune to upgrade to the next subscription. The basic has now just become bait. I actually made pretty good videos before this happened. App is a decent video editor but way too expensive. $29.99 a month for features you need to make good videos . No way.

Warning!!! Do Not Download! Unwanted Auto Sub over-drafted old account. I
by DustyJams on 2020/07/28 18:02
Do not download this app. They automatically take your info without consent and will set up a subscription. Extremely shady developer.
Amwesome

Trash ass app
by IOnlyRateWhenAngry on 2020/07/28 05:08
I deleted it within 2 minutes of having it. No matter what i did i couldnt create a new project and i dont know why it wasnt allowing me to. I tried clicking videos and pictures and i still cant press next. Dumb ass app. Dont download because it makes you pay for anything decent anyways.
Could not figure out
by Morganelena86 on 2020/07/26 15:14
I wanted to simply add selected song clips to video clips and it looks like you have a small selection of songs to choose from, none of which I recognized. I’m not sure how this has so many five star reviews with 99k users
Can’t delete account

Not my type of app, sorry

This ruined my Gacha videos- it needs to be able to be edited by people themselves. It shouldn’t be putting whatever thing it wants

This App is TRASH and they will Steal your $$
by KristenMarie94 on 2020/07/18 20:43
I bought a subscription for this trash app for a year and realized quickly it was useless. I cancelled my subscription in the App Store and didn’t think twice about it again. They then charged me for ANOTHER yearly subscription. Once I emailed customer support to get it sorted it, they said it was in the terms and conditions that this would happen. It is SNEAKY and a whole lot of nonsense. DO NOT USE THIS APP EVER. Edit: I’ve read lots of other reviews and it seems like this is how this app makes money. DO NOT EVER EVER EVER PAY FOR THIS APP. THEY WILL TAKE YOUR MONEY AND BLAME YOU FOR NOT READING THE FINE PRINT. Even though I cancelled in the App Store, where the app was purchased. They still charged me a year later.
Great app!!!

This app is so much fun and I love it
Just happened to me as well today!!!
by rintamtam on 2020/07/17 07:42
The auto subscriptions and billing went directly to my apple pay. I was playing with the apps and didn’t even realize until I got the bill from Apple. How could this happen? I had already sent a ticket to the support team, hopefully will get the refund and get it fixed!
Bait n switch update, shady tactics
by houzcat on 2020/07/16 19:14
Magisto is shady af. They just did a bait and switch with some crappy new push to force ppl to paying for a subscription to their app, with a pop up noting “click here to see new features!” With the option of now or later, clicking now will remove your access to a free 1minute demo and now allow only a 30second demo but also now with a dang watermark. I happily paid for each demo as I needed it but this was just shady and annoying. I’m deleting this app. Update: i see i’m not the only one who feels this way, but does Magisto care?
Hate that the urban theme is gone
by tylanat on 2020/07/16 03:55
Please bring urban theme back 🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️
Beware!!!
by JessA. on 2020/07/15 19:55
Downloaded the app at some point and as other reviews mention, I had no idea it auto enrolled me for the auto renew for each month and this app has charged my card for over 2 years! Thought it was apple care charge since it was labeled Apple.com bill only to realize its this app. Magisto does not have the option to cancel with the auto renew which is incredibly unethical and fraudulent- nor could I cancel on my iPhone and iTunes. Called Apple multiple times and still have issues confirming that it is canceled. Please beware with this app before downloading or even purchasing because canceling is not an option or they make it incredibly hard to do so.
New version is inoperable
by Cdart3 on 2020/07/15 14:39
One of the most powerful features “b-roll” no longer exists in this app’s newest iteration rendering it essentially useless. Strongly dislike.
Holy Smokes, This App Is So Frustrating
by m0neyball on 2020/07/15 04:54
Constant bugs: “Error. An Error Has Occurred”... “Server Error. Sorry An Error Has Occurred”. Once I got such an error, had to abandon the whole project. Every time I want to make a minor tweak, I have to sit through a count-up from 1% to 100%. Music, which I was briefly able to upload and use - now, it selects “No Music” no matter what I choose. No rhyme or reason to the automatic Duration - some set for 0.8 seconds, others set for 4 seconds. To set all manually is brutal. You’d think for all the frustration, this app would cost a few bucks! Nope! $30 a month!!!

HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE
by Uhgtheksndnlak on 2020/07/13 12:23
My 4 year old nephew downloaded this app while playing on my phone . I was charged $30 without even accepting anything myself and they refuse to give me back the money . I already sent and email to you all and still nothing has been done . HORRIBLE
Don’t fall for this expensive subscription
by Dolphinlover71ok on 2020/07/12 01:51
This app charges a ridiculous amount but gives false hope as to what you can do. It tells you to use Apple Music you’ve paid for and have permission to use yet it won’t let you use it. It also won’t let you use pictures you own the writes to. This app is a HUGE waste of time and money!!!!!
I got the app & deleted it immediately, I don’t want any automatic subscription!
by 1gottabefair on 2020/07/11 16:41
I got the app but deleted it immediately, after reading the very useful review posted by cdbennett1231. Reason why? Like that person, I DO NOT WANT ANY AUTOMATIC SUBSCRIPTION TO THIS OR ANY APP!!! Please make very clear from the start that this is the way you procede, so that people can make correct decisions. Don’t be shady!

Amazing algorithms for great videos!
by seacab on 2020/07/04 01:10
I’ve loved this app since day one. Easy uploads, great themes and they must use some kind of AI for audio. Fantastic!!
Misleading
by I want to delete on 2020/07/02 20:30
I have downloaded this app to use for a video for my sister’s birthday. Not professional. The app is good however it signed me up for a professional subscription, the most expensive one. I forgot to cancel the subscription. When I went to see it there was many other cheaper options even one with a sale. I contacted them today and I’ll update if I receive an answer. I’m frustrated and disappointed that I paid for something I did not choose. My advice is check your subscription on your purchases and you will see the plans and prices.
I can’t get premium

It just CUTS my video for no reason when it’s “processing it” no I don’t want that, thank ya very much. And no! I don’t want one audio to be put RIGHT over top of a separate clip!! Why??
This is a scam app They charge you without telling you
by kaneshkapopal on 2020/07/01 04:24
I downloaded the app on March which they say one week free trial. so as soon as I download they charge me so I delete the app and unsubscribe. But I can’t unsubscribes now till I pay them, they don’t have any email or phone number. It’s a scam
NO FREE TRIAL!!!!
by nin110579 on 2020/06/30 11:04
Ha! I should’ve read the reviews first instead of going by the stars which can normally be trusted! I was also immediately charged $30!! I will be reporting this to Apple & the BBB just as quickly as they charged my card!

NOT A FAN
by emjones224 on 2020/06/28 22:24
This is ridiculous. So if you don’t buy a subscription you can only make a movie 1:25 minutes long so I bought it, my movie was 3:40 minutes and it still wouldn’t let me make it past 3 minutes unless I added another video!! 🤬 So I tried to outsmart it and added a different video on at the end and made it 3:45 mins (even though with the other rando video I didn’t need was another 3 mins, I was just going to trim it on my phone afterwards) and it ended up using the OTHER video and cutting out all but 5 sec of the video I needed! And I checked the order before I made it and still F$@&?! up. 🙄 NOT worth the money and NOT worth the frustration
Worst editor out there.
by MichaelMay84 on 2020/06/27 22:16
This thing is beyond frustrating to use. It adds effects that you don’t want, chops up your video into weird orders, lowers resolution. You wind up working on the same video over and over and over again.
Ok but just one thing😧. Lovie💖
by kaitlyn the cat meow on 2020/06/27 18:15
Hello 👋: I was searching The App Store to find a cool free video editing app and I stumbled upon this app I was excited for this one because it just looked amazing so when I downloaded it I was just so sad that you would have to by pretty much every thing. I wish I could give this app a good review but i am deeply sorry that this wasn’t what you wanted to hear. 🥺🥺 - Lovie 💖
I don’t get why?
by lil_cheesy on 2020/06/27 17:53
I don’t get why so many people hate this app it’s amazing!!!
Charge without even trying the trial!!!!!!!!!!
by ljshaijshah on 2020/06/26 09:28
I’m extremely disappoint with this add, I want to try the free 7 days trial and they charge me ahead before even trying it, really upset about how they can do this to clients, if an add offer free trial, they shouldn’t charge at the first moment but after the trial. I ward everyone about this so the same thing doesn’t happen to you!
Bad quality
by CS carter S on 2020/06/26 07:50
I play on 60fps and don’t ever have blur on my game. But this app makes it look like I’m staring into a 1980s tv. (Response to dev) That’s retarded but ok 🙄
Slow downloading, frequently lost project
by coinbase always loser on 2020/06/25 20:38
If you quit the app project will be gone. If you quit the app download will stop If you stay in the app download will stop anyway. Lost hours of not days worth of work. Something wrong with their server
Ehh..

Don’t buy unless you are certain you want charged FOREVER!
by ahsheidbehsi on 2020/06/22 15:28
Makes it almost impossible to cancel subscription. I downloaded initially to make an end of year video for my classroom. It made me sign up for a subscription to continue. The app didn’t meet my needs and the video was unable to be completed. Once I realized this I tried multiple times to cancel my subscription but it was a huge headache and am still being charged $30 a month for an app I already deleted two month ago!!!

by dad21710 on 2020/06/21 05:10
I have used Magisto for almost four years now and I have hundreds of videos. It is so easy. You take photos and short videos of your favorite events and then within a few clicks you have what used to take hours to create. You should have this app.
So far so O.K

more frustrating than helpful

this app makes no sense. can you like let me edit my own video how i want to? like what is this? maybe i just don’t understand it. but it isnt what i expected
Won’t cancel my subscription
by madkat1189563 on 2020/06/19 20:53
I have tried over and over to cancel, and they insist it must be done through Apple—but the subscription doesn’t show up under my account. So I can’t. So I keep getting charged $20 a month. Requested help, and they acted like their hands were tied. Freaking pirates.
I can’t rate it because I am not paying $30/month!
by Gamer.mom.45 on 2020/06/19 14:15
Can you have the option of one time purchase. $30 is too much commitment.
Why is it so expensive
by WastOfMyTimeApp on 2020/06/18 20:13
Why is it other apps allow you to at least cut and crop videos without edits for free but your app can’t even do that without requesting almost $30 from you just to start something, no thank you I realize that I had before was better
Unable to complete the video
by Rrrajesh on 2020/06/15 20:01
I am toiling repeatedly from last 24 hours to create a video. But each time it gets stuck after 99%. Support unable to fix the issue yet . Hope it is solved
Weird..
by imconfusedpqo on 2020/06/14 23:41
Is it normal when you look at your video and it says 1 view after you watched it? Does it count when the creater watches his own video???
I love this deal the best

Careful, this is a cash grab from Vimeo
by Mr. McCready on 2020/06/12 02:33
Signed up to test the app, the trial period was 5 days. Vimeo counts on you forgetting to cancel before the 5 day evaluation so they can bill you for a year of service all at once. The cost is $130+ and will renew unless you login to iTunes and cancel the renewal. 5 days is suspect for any trial, sent Vimeo several emails and got ghosted. It’s obvious that Vimeo doesn’t care about the app working, which it doesn’t , they care about making a good app, they only want to steal your money. It says enough about Vimeo to know that they are not to be trusted with my videos/business.
It should say in purchase

Question before i buy in
by applified mom on 2020/06/08 14:37
I would like to know if this app can upload to youtube or facebook directly. AND Does it have the ability to compress or minimize the video to be emailed vis outlook or gmail? I would be utilizing this app for my video blogging and my real estate property walk throughs. And is 5 minute the limit in length for each video? Is the video stored within magisto or my icloud?

So complicated To try to edit videos. I just want to be able to speed up, clip, mute, and add music. Looks nothing like other programs and hard to use.
Extremely dissapointed
by onlythetruth696 on 2020/06/06 04:06
I searched up “ best editing apps for free” and I was pretty excited at first but for free it doesn’t even lets you rearrange the order u want the videos in, search music in a bar or even add words or filters without paying. And if u pay it’s alotttt of money
$120 and they still have me as FREE Subscription

Too spend
Paywall
by Lilianagalrules on 2020/06/03 17:49
First off, you paywall features that should be free such as making a video with more then 1 video footage! Also, I was hoping for something not paywalled so yeah. This is very bad.
AMAZING

I am making a video for my boyfriend containing a ton of pictures from our first year together. I tried iMovie and it was a NIGHTMARE, at least on iPhone. I was worried I wouldn’t be able to find another good editing software. At first glance, I didn’t like how this app seemed to do everything for you, but I went ahead and put the pictures in and put a couple random settings real quick, just to see if it was something I wanted to put more time into. The result was almost exactly what I was looking to make! With just a couple minor tweaks, my finished product will be ready! I am so very impressed and surprised in the best way! The only thing I would change is the fact that you can’t put over 100 pictures in one video, but the rest of this app was so incredible that I will work with that and it will still end up being the best video I’ve ever made! 100% would recommend!
Can I at least see if it works first??

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 & 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 & 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.
I hate auto subscriptions. Why are these still a thing?
by cdbennett1231 on 2019/03/24 14:06
Don’t be like me, read the fine print. An add for this app appeared on my feed and I just wanted to play around and check it out, so I opted in on the free trial. Since my phone already saves my payment info and such, I did not realize my account would automatically be charged after the trial. I spent over $60 (2 months) before realizing it was charging me (I had deleted the app from my phone not knowing I was subscribed). I didn’t even end up using the app! So, be careful and take your time. If this is the app for you, great, if you’re just bored and decide to click on the advertisement and check it out, be wary of the auto charges since they will not refund you. Personally, I believe automatically enrolling people with a subscription without making it 100% transparent should be illegal, and doesn’t make me believe you have a great product. Great product sells itself, and doesn’t need to rely on people’s lack of awareness. This is just my opinion.
Got very greedy
by BigT54 on 2018/05/20 02:35
I use to love this app but they slowly became so greedy. Charging you for so many ridiculous things that people do for free. You can’t even save your own videos unless you subscribe to their monthly fee, A total rip off I’m done with this app. The blocking you from doing so many things unless you pay. Don’t waste your time or your money, they became very greedy and there’s many other app developers the do just as good a job if not better for a lot less. The latest update put the nail in the coffin for me and I would like to encourage you all to not purchase this app unless you’re willing to spend money every single month just to use it.
Not worth the money and VERY poor customer support
by artc1688 on 2019/05/21 19:50
Heard from a friend about this SW and it’s ability to automate the creation process. Decided to give it a try. The very short version (15sec?) was cute and decided to try the 7 days “professional “ version. When I realized Tencent, Google and other apps offer similar feature and convenient for free, I decided it it not worth the money. However, the cancellation process for the trial version was not simple at all!!!!! I looked all over and unable to find ANYWHERE within he app on how to cancel the subscription! I wrote to customer support looking for help and the response from customer response was not helpful and kept asking me why I didn’t like the SW! After mutual attempts they sent me the link and told me I have to go into the iTunes account and cancel it!!! Also, by this time they have already charged me and now I have to beg ITunes to return my money because the customer support was poor and the cancellation process was unclear and difficult. Try Tencent SW or Google, it’s free and you don’t have to deal with magisto customer support!!!!
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'm willing to pay for the business acct if there's some sort of guarantee that I can actually get my videos in the hd quality it shows me playing the video WITHIN the app before I download it to my phone or ig.. I actually was about to jump on paying for a year right before creating the first movie glad I didn’t - I've also written your customer service and no one ever got back to me about questions I’ve asked on both ig dm and emails
Want to love it
by Dustysage on 2018/12/29 22:34
There is so much to move about this App. It DOES make BEAUTIFUL videos. Unfortunately, the lack of controls means that most videos are unuasable in the end. Too often, the software selects clips which are unimportant or draw attention to the wrong things. And almost always, the clips are shown in such an out of order fashion that the video makes no sense. Two quick enhancements would fix that problem for me. 1) allow me to set the order the clips are shown. And 2) allow me to select a hot spot on video clips that I want to make sure are featured. For example, if I’m making a video of my day at Disneyland, I don’t want the fireworks to show up first, I want them to be the grand finale. I don’t want the people in the crowd to be the focus, but rather my own friends or the attractions themselves. I think this is an easy fix with just a few additions to the edit tools.
Lack of clarification on cancelling trial period and very poor customer service
by XCrystallineX on 2019/09/10 22:34
Do not download this app. I downloaded this app because it said it was free. After making an account, I was immediately surprised when it said that after a seven day free trial I would automatically start paying for a subscription to use it. The site claims that you can cancel the trial at any point, but I have been unsuccessful at finding any way to do that. There is no where on the site that allows you to simply cancel your free trial, and no instructions on how to do so. After deleting my account, there is also no way for me to contact the developers for help. They have no contact information, like emails or phone numbers that you can contact for assistance. The only way to ask for their help is if you login. I only learned after the fact that if you delete your account and/or the app, your subscriptions will continue regardless. I don’t know what to do and I can’t contact them for help.
Potential to be Great
by Rearea1 on 2017/11/11 21:13
This could be a great app if only it would work better without Wi-Fi. There seems to be a little glitch with my app it will not work if I'm not in Wi-Fi. It's also hard to edit you have to go through the whole process before allowing you to re-order photos, delete photos, add photos, change length of time, or make any changes it has to go through the entire process before you could do it again. It's kind of a bummer and a waste of time that the editing is not easy to use. Also wish that you could choose where you want the music to start instead of only being able to play the music from the beginning of the song. Finally, it would be the best if you could make movies over 4 minutes.
I really tried
by HQuinzelDMD on 2019/07/23 13:52
I decided to try this app and really wanted to like this app but it fell really short. The templates are a cool idea but every time I did a new video it wasn’t good. Even though there is an option to go back and edit the slides, the editor is super difficult to use. Coming from an iMovie and video shop editing background, I don’t get why the video editor is so lacking. To show my effort I edited one video 8 times with different lengths and templates just to give it a good try and just came out unhappy. I would love it if maybe the app was set up like iMovie and we were able to use the templates so we could alter the footage more easily. The automatic editor just isn’t that great. Maybe if your videos you don’t speak a lot this can work. Even when I selected the speech only option it still edited and cut in awkward places that were difficult to go back and edit.
A lot of glitch going on
by Whittier Lee on 2019/10/26 02:05
I have been working on this video for 3 days already and I cannot finished it because of this glitches on Magisto from replacing a photo (not replacing the photo that I want ) or even uploading a new one whether it’s from my own photo library or from their istock folder. Saving the video file is a huge huge disappointment as after I spent about 4hrs making a video , it didn’t saved actually at this time 7hrs after I tried to saved it, it was still in that status of waiting for few minutes and will notify me when it’s ready. This app is SO EXPENSIVE! And this is what I’m gonna get? I never paid an expensive app before , I trusted that this app is superb but it was a HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT , HUGE WASTE OF TIME MAKING MY VIDEO THAT DID NOT SAVE AND HUGE WASTE OF MONEY AND I actually would like to demand a refund for this app but I’m gonna figure that out later on. NOT WORTH YOUR MONEY!
Misleading
by Rkjest on 2018/09/21 14:27
Terribly misleading in the descriptions and functions of this app. First of all, note that it comes up first in the App Store with an “Ad” listed next to it- which means they pay for sponsorship and push faulty reviews!! I doubt that all of these five stars are legitimate, as there are so many problems throughout. From there, they push multi-tiered subscriptions on you with any attempt to explore the app. The user interface doesn’t make any sense. There aren’t tools for you to use on your own- you have no option but to choose a pre-designed template. It hardly makes any sense! I’m appalled that the App Store allows a company to push this obvious scam. And obviously the devs are “listening:” it’s more like defending themselves and trying to rake in the cash in any way possible. If they are a legitimate company that actually cares, focus on creating a good product that works instead of pawning this off to us like Snake Oil salesmen.
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.
Magisto is Amazing
by JonD2019 on 2019/04/19 23:52
I make a movie every month and for every holiday and occasion! People always marvel at how amazing they are. But I feel guilty taking the credit since the Magisto app does all the work. I just select photos, vids, theme, music, title and time and in just a few minutes, Magisto creates a professional looking video! I can’t believe how the app is able to zoom, splice and transition so perfectly every time. It’s really astonishing. If I was to use a traditional photo editing app to accomplish the same result, it would take me 10 times as long! Magisto has been a part of our family memory making life since 2015 and it’s now indispensable! Try it, you’ll love it!
Misrepresented
by L💚CA on 2018/08/06 13:52
I tried the free business trial, because it said I could easily cancel within a week in “settings”. I tried it, the video quality was awful and there weren’t anymore options for creating a pro level video/slide show than my free apps. For $30 I expected way more than my free apps. Then, When I went to cancel, it turns out you have to cancel in ITUNES SETTINGS, not the app settings. Had I known this I wouldn’t have done the trial (I rarely do trials and checked to make sure it was easy to cancel), my iTunes account has been very problematic for years. Took me 3 hours to resolve the situation and customer support at Magisto had zero ability to fix it on their end and didn’t apologize for the misleading copy. Wish I had an option for zero stars. The customer support team is fairly quick to answer your emails, to tell you that they can not and will not do anything to help.
Better and Better
by Sirhc401 on 2018/04/11 21:49
I have used Magisto for a few years now. They have come a long way from the few cool clips you could make. Video collages could not be made simpler and edits allow you to make tweaks until you love it. They make great 1:30 to 2:30 min videos to capture our trips and vacations to share with family and friend, plus go back and live in the land of nostalgia. If I could critique one thing, it’s that as they have grown it has been more focused on business subscriptions and they don’t keep/update styles like they used to. However, they have expanded music selection. Looking forward to more content in the future!
Best App to Auto Generate movies
by Phil222 on 2019/05/12 04:27
I have use this app for the last three years and I’ve tried dozens of different video editing apps and I also use more complex ones like Adobe Premier and this one has always been the one that I go back to because of how well it is able to intelligently choose parts of clips the best fit the movie altogether and the template style options and music options are far better than other apps so your movies are more likely to be unique. It also handles the large amount of data without bugs and renders video quickly. Great app And I look forward to seeing what’s to come.
BE WARNED - 1 trial even if it’s been 5 years
by Mollewog on 2018/06/27 13:07
I recently trialed, or so I thought, this app. After searching through multiple video editing apps, I came across this one and “trialed” it. I didn’t realize I had purchased it until my bank statement showed it. I had no response from this company, nor Apple, to me signing for a free trial letting me know I had actually purchased the app. According to Magisto, it’s Apple’s policy for a one time free trial. Ok. I understand. Perhaps it was in the fine print... but I believe that Magisto should care for their potential customers and reiterate that... or at the very least give a warning when signing for the free trial that it is not actually a free trial. Sidenote - I apparently signed up 5 years ago when my baby was a few weeks old. I had completely forgotten about it. So, my fault..for not reading the fine print somewhere, wherever it is. And for forgetting I had tried a free trial. I get it and I paid the 32 dollars for this app. Lesson learned... but felt I should let others know so they don’t make the same mistake I did. Bottom line - good app but not for the price. You can find better for less $$. I don’t trust this company so I don’t plan to use it nor will I recommend it.
Magisto App will make your family and friends cry tears of joy
by Jumpinjackfire on 2017/12/20 15:46
I don't generally write reviews. However this Magisto app is special. It syncs together videos and pictures making you the photographer look like you are as good of a movie director as Ron Howard. My pictures and videos of vacations, friends weddings, holidays spent with family, Eagle Scout ceremony, etc are priceless. I like to take several pictures and short video clips of 10 to 30 seconds. Then just pick the pic and videos you want. Select a music theme from Magisto along with a title to your movie and Magesto's magic does the rest. Get This App. Enough Said!
I would probably not recommend it.
by The Nightmare Hour on 2019/05/27 23:14
Despite its ability to arrange your content into quality videos with minimal effort, there are a few things that stand in the way of me giving Magisto five stars. The app is unreasonably limited for those who cannot afford the premium addition. However, buying the premium addition leads to renewal the app doesn’t warn you about. Magisto actually makes it quite difficult to access the controls through which one might be able to cancel subscription. That is not the last of the problems, though. For those working on tablets rather than phones, there is no version that allows users to enable a landscape setting, contrary to many apps on the store. It’s these minor inconveniences that restricts me from being compelled to use the app.
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't mind paying that, but others like me don't. I think you should add the price in the video for this app so people know how much they need to pay. Next, I'm glad there is a 7 day trial, so i tried it out, but you have to have atleast 15 seconds of a video. When i make videos, i prefer to put together what i have so far, to see how it looks, and then add on. but mine was only about 6 seconds so far, so it wouldn't let me look at the progress. Other than that, it's a good app. If you are willing to pay, then i suggest it.
EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED WITH THE CHANGES
by Sheenalee1229 on 2019/11/15 22:40
I’ve used this app to make a few videos for awhile now and bought the subscription last month for premium where it was easy to see which templates I could use but now, every template I click on says I need to upgrade. This new change is very deceptive and I feel like I wasted my $ on the premium, only to be hustled into buying a more expensive subscription that I can’t even try to see what the upgrade is all about! Before they were reasonably priced and now this app is worthless unless you’re wanting to spend a lot of $ on their subscription, which will probably change again and be even more expensive. There’s also no phone support so you have to wait for them to respond via email for issues. I’ll be looking into other apps with better business practices.
Needs a music upgrade
by very, very useful on 2017/12/28 12:46
I use this app for a lot of things. I have the full professional upgrade. For the most part, this app does everything I need. The only downside, for me, seeing how much I use the app, is that more editing styles are needed. I would also strongly encourage the creators of this app to allow music from the users personal iTunes account. A lot of the music available works great with the videos. Again, for how frequently it’s used, Videos start to get repetitive without more editing and music selections.
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.
Dropped my rating to 2 star because..
by Maliceon on 2019/03/05 13:31
It used to be intuitive and now it's so random it's just clips and crap music. The #1 reason for using this app for getting to checkout all the new indy artists on the rise. Now it's just a lot of public domain stuff. Also I have a pro subscription and it still won't let me make a long video. Just a short or medium. After more than 5-6 years at the rate of $9.99 a month totaling around $600 one would think I could make a full 3min video by now. 😟 but no. I'm not going to renew my subscription this next billing cycle. It's not worth it. I will be back later in the year to check and see if any updates have improved the experience because I really did love this app for many years. I hope it gets back to good.
Subscription scam
by The Real Deli on 2018/12/05 18:10
I had cancelled this months ago and realized in an accounting audit that it was still connected to my iTunes Store account. Just went through the cancellation process again and the way that it is designed as a trap to make you think you’ve canceled when in fact it takes two tries and some back stepping to get a message that tells you to go to the iTunes account to cancel, which in and of itself is a convoluted process. Your cancellation process is clearly a trap, and I wish iTunes would regulate people like you from using their payment platform. You may have a good rating for people who want to use your app, you get a one star from me for your support telling me there was nothing they could do to help that I should contact the iTunes Store. Standby your rip off program.
READ FOR INFO ON HOW TO CANCEL
by Maimoon416@ on 2019/04/15 07:42
Their free trial was helpful but it was a pain to cancel everything. ***READ FOR INFO ON HOW TO CANCEL -go to the Settings app -then go to iTunes & App Stores -tap on Apple ID at the top -select view Apple ID -go down to Subscriptions -click on the app you want to cancel and cancel it Hope this helped some of you since it took me forever sitting in frustration and anxiety to cancel the app on time before it charged me. Instead of just saying we should cancel in iTunes they should explain how to do it. SMH. I loved the app honestly. I didn’t need anything too professional since I was just using it for family and friends but it was really too expensive for what it was. I can’t be paying $20-$30 a month for this when I only used it for one project in the last month. I have other more important priorities, bills to pay for. If it were $10-$20 for the whole app, not just monthly then I feel like more people would buy it. This monthly thing is really not helping you guys. Feels more like a swindlers scam than a professional app.
Stopping Payments is a nightmare!!!
by Stormyrose on 2018/06/21 12:33
I was going to cancel my subscription for a month or two but to do so is seemingly impossible. I cancelled from the app, or so thought. When I got charged again I though, “well, I must have done it incorrectly”. This time, I get a pop up that says I have to unsubscribe through my iTunes id. I follow the steps to unsubscribe from there-it’s listed but there is no unsubscribe option. I email support and am refunded $7.57. Upon closer look at my account I find that when I “ugraded” from a $6.99 plan to a $15 plan it wasn’t actually an upgrade. I was still being charged both. Upgrade apparently means something very different to Magisto. I file a dispute with PayPal. They are still looking into it. Today My BANK account-not PayPal is charged another $15 from Magisto!!! I go to look at my iTubes Subscription and it is listed as cancelled. Magisto is still telling me I have to unsubscribe through iTunes and not them. This is a mess! What am i supposed to do to stop the payments-close my bank account and PayPal???? These people cannot be trusted. Not only have I lost money, but the amount of time I’ve wasted on just unsubscribing from this ridiculous app is absolutely absurd!!
Disappointing
by @janicejuvices_ on 2018/12/30 16:36
The process of getting the final result was a little confusing and time wasting but it wasn’t horrible. The BAD part was the video quality :/ I looked through the reviews and saw that other people had the same problem and the response that some people got was that I had to use the same device that I recorded with... which I did and still got horrible quality. Another problem that some people had was cancelling their subscription. At first I was panicking because their cancellation process was confusing and the price was quite up there, but all I had to do was go on their help services and they lead me through the proper steps. Overall, the app isn’t that great and it’s confusing to manage at first.
Not what it used to be.
by TheEgo on 2018/11/03 21:47
I was a fan of Magistro for the simplicity of making a good short video in HD in their early days, it was an App way ahead of Apple an Google In terms of making automated videos from pictures and anything you have in your photo album. It was perhaps the first AI video making App. Recently downloaded the App and was totally disappointed. The interface was changed in many ways, trying to blend the App more into a social media platform, which is not what you are looking in the first place. The billing is horrible! You can’t even make a video without committing to a subscription and despite the “free to cancel” option I won’t expend time on any app that if is not what I need will have to devote time on canceling subscriptions. It was a great App, so sorry for what they made out of it.
This trash app cant do anything it says it can
by PixL_Acsam on 2018/11/15 20:30
This app says that it can edit and make videos and movies professionally, but I tried it and it doesnt even let you set a specific order for the clips you use, it just randomly plays them out of order. All I want is to cut portions of a video but this piece of trash expects me to pay $25 a month for a version that adds even more useless crap. If I am expected to pay for trash editing then I might as well throw all my life savings into a fire, there really is no difference in this case. Take away the subscription crap, then I will consider using this cheap, good for nothing app. Hope the Magisto CEO are having fun writing fake reviews about how fun this app is, because I can clearly see that this cant do anything more than just screw up your videos.
Subscribe and they'll show you all the templates you CAN'T use.
by ptezco on 2019/04/12 19:27
I’m also sick and tired about not being able to filter outer the filters I am not subscribed to. I am ALREADY PAYING MONEY for this thing. It is frustrating the sensation of paying and not having access to a bunch of stuff. I know that’s the way things are but that doesn't have to be rubbing it in on my face EVERY TIME I try to make a video. Just put a filter: I pay for the so-called PREMIUM. IT's $5 a month. Not nothing. A great deal of money if you ask me. I deserve to have clean access to the stuff I have access to. The product itself is worth paying for it. What is annoying and frustrating is the aggressive marketing tactics they use to entice you to upgrade.
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
Family Memories
by Patsylee321 on 2017/09/21 17:46
This app is an easy, quick way to share special family moments! I love that I can add music from my own playlist! The app provides a great selection of themes and allows me to choose a length that is easy to share on Facebook to share with friends. I have used it with my preschool class to share with parents, adding just the right song that demonstrates the new concept we are learning and the students actively involved in learning activities! The students love seeing their movie as well.
Okay...
by Drewawesome on 2018/05/28 22:18
Overall I like the concept of it and I do enjoy it, have some issues. First, it doesn’t put the pictures where you would expect them to be. Also if you have more than one clip it’s not always in the order you’d think it was in. If people are actually making your videos they should make your videos make since, and putting clips in weird orders, putting pictures in wrong spots, is not the way to do it. Also I wish you didn’t have to pay to make your minutes longer than a minute and a half, and the only way you can make them longer is by going premium! I wish this app was just a little thought out better, and it would be nice if it where updated
BEEARE! They automatically charged me without notifying me
by Smommy2 on 2019/09/04 20:41
I would in NO way sign up with this company or even use the trial. They automatically charged me a subscription fee and I did not even realize that I had signed up because I thought I was just playing around with the app and then it automatically signed me up without me knowing it. A days later I was charged $30 and no one from this company will help me get my refund. I was literally just charged $30 yesterday and I immediately contacted the company several times to get a refund and no one will help me get a refund. I tried contacting Apple and I just get an automatic response that says they will not give me a refund. I’m not one to normally complain but this is the WORST customer service ever - Honestly it feels like a scam to take your money. I finally figured out how to cancel my subscription after searching around for an hour trying to figure it out and canceled it but I can’t get a refund. I sincerely hope that someone from this company will see this review and decide that it would be best to give me a refund since I am not using the app and it just charged me yesterday.
Be careful...
by Fhsrhcdedgvdetyhgr on 2019/08/22 22:02
I downloaded the free trial for this app a few weeks ago. I knew that it would not serve the purpose for which I downloaded it within 60 seconds and immediately followed steps to cancel the subscription (knowing that it would charge me the following month if I did not cancel). When I attempted to cancel the subscription, the app offered me a discounted rate to avoid losing my subscription fee, I declined the offer and confirmed that I would like to cancel the subscription. Now I am receiving a billing notification from the App Store for a $30 monthly charge for the privilege of using this app for 60 seconds. I have since discovered that there is a very deeply embedded cancellation process and have truly (hopefully) canceled my subscription. Beware of this app, it is far from free.
Scam Don’t Do It!
by The GTR Guy on 2019/02/24 04:08
I barely tried the app itself because I noticed the negative reviews right after I did the free subscription. Of course, I was then stuck like the many others in the reviews. It took me forever to get around the scam of unsubscribing. Real slick scam to have an unsubscribe button in the app that doesn’t truly unsubscribe you. Had to go into itunes account and kill it there under the subscriptions section. Don’t know why Apple allows this garbage but I’ll have to watch my account for the next few months to make sure they don’t hit me like they did others. I’m never loading a new app again before reading the reviews! You have been warned! Seems like they found a way to give themselves a nice star rating to fool you too. These guys are good.
Not a video editing app! Beware
by Real Thinkscape on 2018/10/04 22:46
You upload all your private videos/photos to some company's servers. This is a front for a website that generates montages from your clips with some effects added. When you upload, you have to accept a long terms of service agreement document, written by lawyers, in a language that will make you cringe. Basically you give away your videos and hope for the best... If you're fine with that, expect to wait for hours for your HD and 4k videos to finish uploading... Oh and also don't expect any decent resolution results - they limit the output resolution to laughable SD, or if you pay heaps you get 720p (like it's 2010 again)... Or you can pay even more for "business" (!?) to get the privilege to download a last-gen 1080p version.
meh..
by mrsvle on 2018/03/14 08:31
Not sure you can really purchase creativity. Effects are canned and cliche, music is bland and innocuous. And the constant pressure to upgrade is obscene. Also the free tryout version is so limited you’re not inspired to upgrade to the “Professional” version which lets you do incredibly amazing things like change the order of your pictures and add a logo. You won’t be able to download your video unless you upgrade, and sharing your video is essentially advertising for Magisto since their logo will be all over it. In the long run you’ll be much better off getting a real video editing program and learning how to use it. ps. pretty sure most of these review ratings have been jacked
Not easy to operate and difficult to cancel
by no way 22 on 2018/10/16 15:23
I uploaded 72 photos. It did not tell me that it was too many. It automatically condensed my photos and did not include all of my photos. The editing options are very difficult and not easy to operate. So I never managed to make the video the way I wanted with all photos. Then I tried to cancel. Which there are multiple steps in order to cancel. You have to cancel it in the app. Then go to your Apple ID settings and unsubscribe to which I’m still unsure if I’m successfully cancelled. They get you to sign up for a free trial then will automatically charge you if you don’t unsubscribe but I can’t unsubscribe successfully. VERY CROOKED way of doing things especially when I’m not even satisfied with the apps function.
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.

First
Read reviews first!
by Uluvnme on 2020/08/11 02:01
I downloaded to make a video for a class project. I tried to use it as a guest due to I won’t have a use for it after the project is done. It stated that it automatically charges $29.99 a month after the short free trial is over. I deleted after reading that and now have to figure out how to cancel a subscription to something I didn’t use. I should have actually read the reviews first. I didn’t because of the high score rating. Def read the reviews before downloading.
I don’t like it.
by Luis Alexander Plascencia on 2020/08/10 04:33
I can’t even use anything on this app..
Color change not working for fonts.
by HarveyDent2 on 2020/08/09 18:01
I love this app it. The new version is visually pleasing but still doesn’t work correct. At the moment I’m trying to change the color on text so it’s visible on certain backgrounds. IT WONT LET ME SWITCH THE COLOR ON TEXT. I’m getting frustrated being that I pay monthly and can’t get a simple thing like this to work. I would like this correct immediately so I can continue promoting thank you! I’ll change my rating soon as.
Didn’t even know I subscribed
by 👄👄 zubby on 2020/08/07 20:50
I just got home from a year and a half mission (we’re not allowed to use these apps), so I wasn’t home to use my phone. I got an email that said I had signed up for the 29.99 subscription that renews every year. If I wasn’t even home to renew it and I don’t remember signing up for it, why is it charging me? The email says I have to choose to renew it in order for it to charge me again, BUT HERE’S THE WEIRD PART why didn’t it just end last year when I wasn’t even around to renew it? I’m genuinely confused 😂😂 and now I’m worried it will charge me again even though it doesn’t give me the option to cancel it in my settings. Also, I legitimately have no recollection of signing up for even a free trial for this app.

Like the videos, not the time
by DrssDva on 2020/07/31 20:09
The videos usually turn out great. Don’t like the fact that it takes such a long time to create them- I’ve literally been waiting for hours for one video to finish.
Was not expecting that
by iluvchand on 2020/07/31 14:13
Doing the trial video it asked if I wanted to update with a $6 fee. I said sure not bad I purchased the app thinking “GREAT” I’m gonna make awesome videos. Then when I want to add something background, theme, etc... then Bam!!$29 . So disappointed.
Improved version? Too many glitches
by Lymanomsdfcffv on 2020/07/31 05:32
Have this app for 2 years no issues. Loved it. This new update? Freezes on the screen that asks you to pay $59.99 per month if you want more options. Tried everything to unfreeze the app so I can post for my sons birthday . No can do. Don’t update if you can’t deliver a stress free experience at a high price point! Disappointed.
Decent But PRICEY
by Dhydsyi on 2020/07/30 20:13
Update: So I had this subscription before at a cheaper price in the past but now with the upgrades, some of the features have migrated to the pro subscription like text for example. How basic is that, that you have to spend a fortune to upgrade to the next subscription. The basic has now just become bait. I actually made pretty good videos before this happened. App is a decent video editor but way too expensive. $29.99 a month for features you need to make good videos . No way.

I deleted it within 2 minutes of having it. No matter what i did i couldnt create a new project and i dont know why it wasnt allowing me to. I tried clicking videos and pictures and i still cant press next. Dumb ass app. Dont download because it makes you pay for anything decent anyways.
Could not figure out
by Morganelena86 on 2020/07/26 15:14
I wanted to simply add selected song clips to video clips and it looks like you have a small selection of songs to choose from, none of which I recognized. I’m not sure how this has so many five star reviews with 99k users

This App is TRASH and they will Steal your $$
by KristenMarie94 on 2020/07/18 20:43
I bought a subscription for this trash app for a year and realized quickly it was useless. I cancelled my subscription in the App Store and didn’t think twice about it again. They then charged me for ANOTHER yearly subscription. Once I emailed customer support to get it sorted it, they said it was in the terms and conditions that this would happen. It is SNEAKY and a whole lot of nonsense. DO NOT USE THIS APP EVER. Edit: I’ve read lots of other reviews and it seems like this is how this app makes money. DO NOT EVER EVER EVER PAY FOR THIS APP. THEY WILL TAKE YOUR MONEY AND BLAME YOU FOR NOT READING THE FINE PRINT. Even though I cancelled in the App Store, where the app was purchased. They still charged me a year later.
Great app!!!

Just happened to me as well today!!!
by rintamtam on 2020/07/17 07:42
The auto subscriptions and billing went directly to my apple pay. I was playing with the apps and didn’t even realize until I got the bill from Apple. How could this happen? I had already sent a ticket to the support team, hopefully will get the refund and get it fixed!
Bait n switch update, shady tactics
by houzcat on 2020/07/16 19:14
Magisto is shady af. They just did a bait and switch with some crappy new push to force ppl to paying for a subscription to their app, with a pop up noting “click here to see new features!” With the option of now or later, clicking now will remove your access to a free 1minute demo and now allow only a 30second demo but also now with a dang watermark. I happily paid for each demo as I needed it but this was just shady and annoying. I’m deleting this app. Update: i see i’m not the only one who feels this way, but does Magisto care?
Hate that the urban theme is gone

Please bring urban theme back 🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️
Beware!!!
by JessA. on 2020/07/15 19:55
Downloaded the app at some point and as other reviews mention, I had no idea it auto enrolled me for the auto renew for each month and this app has charged my card for over 2 years! Thought it was apple care charge since it was labeled Apple.com bill only to realize its this app. Magisto does not have the option to cancel with the auto renew which is incredibly unethical and fraudulent- nor could I cancel on my iPhone and iTunes. Called Apple multiple times and still have issues confirming that it is canceled. Please beware with this app before downloading or even purchasing because canceling is not an option or they make it incredibly hard to do so.
New version is inoperable
by Cdart3 on 2020/07/15 14:39
One of the most powerful features “b-roll” no longer exists in this app’s newest iteration rendering it essentially useless. Strongly dislike.
Holy Smokes, This App Is So Frustrating
by m0neyball on 2020/07/15 04:54
Constant bugs: “Error. An Error Has Occurred”... “Server Error. Sorry An Error Has Occurred”. Once I got such an error, had to abandon the whole project. Every time I want to make a minor tweak, I have to sit through a count-up from 1% to 100%. Music, which I was briefly able to upload and use - now, it selects “No Music” no matter what I choose. No rhyme or reason to the automatic Duration - some set for 0.8 seconds, others set for 4 seconds. To set all manually is brutal. You’d think for all the frustration, this app would cost a few bucks! Nope! $30 a month!!!

HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE
by Uhgtheksndnlak on 2020/07/13 12:23
My 4 year old nephew downloaded this app while playing on my phone . I was charged $30 without even accepting anything myself and they refuse to give me back the money . I already sent and email to you all and still nothing has been done . HORRIBLE
Don’t fall for this expensive subscription
by Dolphinlover71ok on 2020/07/12 01:51
This app charges a ridiculous amount but gives false hope as to what you can do. It tells you to use Apple Music you’ve paid for and have permission to use yet it won’t let you use it. It also won’t let you use pictures you own the writes to. This app is a HUGE waste of time and money!!!!!
I got the app & deleted it immediately, I don’t want any automatic subscription!
by 1gottabefair on 2020/07/11 16:41
I got the app but deleted it immediately, after reading the very useful review posted by cdbennett1231. Reason why? Like that person, I DO NOT WANT ANY AUTOMATIC SUBSCRIPTION TO THIS OR ANY APP!!! Please make very clear from the start that this is the way you procede, so that people can make correct decisions. Don’t be shady!

Amazing algorithms for great videos!
by seacab on 2020/07/04 01:10
I’ve loved this app since day one. Easy uploads, great themes and they must use some kind of AI for audio. Fantastic!!
Misleading
by I want to delete on 2020/07/02 20:30
I have downloaded this app to use for a video for my sister’s birthday. Not professional. The app is good however it signed me up for a professional subscription, the most expensive one. I forgot to cancel the subscription. When I went to see it there was many other cheaper options even one with a sale. I contacted them today and I’ll update if I receive an answer. I’m frustrated and disappointed that I paid for something I did not choose. My advice is check your subscription on your purchases and you will see the plans and prices.
I can’t get premium

It just CUTS my video for no reason when it’s “processing it” no I don’t want that, thank ya very much. And no! I don’t want one audio to be put RIGHT over top of a separate clip!! Why??
This is a scam app They charge you without telling you
by kaneshkapopal on 2020/07/01 04:24
I downloaded the app on March which they say one week free trial. so as soon as I download they charge me so I delete the app and unsubscribe. But I can’t unsubscribes now till I pay them, they don’t have any email or phone number. It’s a scam
NO FREE TRIAL!!!!
by nin110579 on 2020/06/30 11:04
Ha! I should’ve read the reviews first instead of going by the stars which can normally be trusted! I was also immediately charged $30!! I will be reporting this to Apple & the BBB just as quickly as they charged my card!

NOT A FAN
by emjones224 on 2020/06/28 22:24
This is ridiculous. So if you don’t buy a subscription you can only make a movie 1:25 minutes long so I bought it, my movie was 3:40 minutes and it still wouldn’t let me make it past 3 minutes unless I added another video!! 🤬 So I tried to outsmart it and added a different video on at the end and made it 3:45 mins (even though with the other rando video I didn’t need was another 3 mins, I was just going to trim it on my phone afterwards) and it ended up using the OTHER video and cutting out all but 5 sec of the video I needed! And I checked the order before I made it and still F$@&?! up. 🙄 NOT worth the money and NOT worth the frustration
Worst editor out there.
by MichaelMay84 on 2020/06/27 22:16
This thing is beyond frustrating to use. It adds effects that you don’t want, chops up your video into weird orders, lowers resolution. You wind up working on the same video over and over and over again.
Ok but just one thing😧. Lovie💖
by kaitlyn the cat meow on 2020/06/27 18:15
Hello 👋: I was searching The App Store to find a cool free video editing app and I stumbled upon this app I was excited for this one because it just looked amazing so when I downloaded it I was just so sad that you would have to by pretty much every thing. I wish I could give this app a good review but i am deeply sorry that this wasn’t what you wanted to hear. 🥺🥺 - Lovie 💖
I don’t get why?
by lil_cheesy on 2020/06/27 17:53
I don’t get why so many people hate this app it’s amazing!!!
Charge without even trying the trial!!!!!!!!!!
by ljshaijshah on 2020/06/26 09:28
I’m extremely disappoint with this add, I want to try the free 7 days trial and they charge me ahead before even trying it, really upset about how they can do this to clients, if an add offer free trial, they shouldn’t charge at the first moment but after the trial. I ward everyone about this so the same thing doesn’t happen to you!
Bad quality
by CS carter S on 2020/06/26 07:50
I play on 60fps and don’t ever have blur on my game. But this app makes it look like I’m staring into a 1980s tv. (Response to dev) That’s retarded but ok 🙄
Slow downloading, frequently lost project
by coinbase always loser on 2020/06/25 20:38
If you quit the app project will be gone. If you quit the app download will stop If you stay in the app download will stop anyway. Lost hours of not days worth of work. Something wrong with their server
Ehh..

by ahsheidbehsi on 2020/06/22 15:28
Makes it almost impossible to cancel subscription. I downloaded initially to make an end of year video for my classroom. It made me sign up for a subscription to continue. The app didn’t meet my needs and the video was unable to be completed. Once I realized this I tried multiple times to cancel my subscription but it was a huge headache and am still being charged $30 a month for an app I already deleted two month ago!!!

I have used Magisto for almost four years now and I have hundreds of videos. It is so easy. You take photos and short videos of your favorite events and then within a few clicks you have what used to take hours to create. You should have this app.

Won’t cancel my subscription
by madkat1189563 on 2020/06/19 20:53
I have tried over and over to cancel, and they insist it must be done through Apple—but the subscription doesn’t show up under my account. So I can’t. So I keep getting charged $20 a month. Requested help, and they acted like their hands were tied. Freaking pirates.
I can’t rate it because I am not paying $30/month!
by Gamer.mom.45 on 2020/06/19 14:15
Can you have the option of one time purchase. $30 is too much commitment.
Why is it so expensive
by WastOfMyTimeApp on 2020/06/18 20:13
Why is it other apps allow you to at least cut and crop videos without edits for free but your app can’t even do that without requesting almost $30 from you just to start something, no thank you I realize that I had before was better
Unable to complete the video
by Rrrajesh on 2020/06/15 20:01

Weird..
by imconfusedpqo on 2020/06/14 23:41
Is it normal when you look at your video and it says 1 view after you watched it? Does it count when the creater watches his own video???

Careful, this is a cash grab from Vimeo
by Mr. McCready on 2020/06/12 02:33
Signed up to test the app, the trial period was 5 days. Vimeo counts on you forgetting to cancel before the 5 day evaluation so they can bill you for a year of service all at once. The cost is $130+ and will renew unless you login to iTunes and cancel the renewal. 5 days is suspect for any trial, sent Vimeo several emails and got ghosted. It’s obvious that Vimeo doesn’t care about the app working, which it doesn’t , they care about making a good app, they only want to steal your money. It says enough about Vimeo to know that they are not to be trusted with my videos/business.
It should say in purchase

Question before i buy in
by applified mom on 2020/06/08 14:37
I would like to know if this app can upload to youtube or facebook directly. AND Does it have the ability to compress or minimize the video to be emailed vis outlook or gmail? I would be utilizing this app for my video blogging and my real estate property walk throughs. And is 5 minute the limit in length for each video? Is the video stored within magisto or my icloud? Thanking you in advance for your response! Gail
Not user friendly
by terabearr on 2020/06/08 03:39
So complicated To try to edit videos. I just want to be able to speed up, clip, mute, and add music. Looks nothing like other programs and hard to use.
Extremely dissapointed
by onlythetruth696 on 2020/06/06 04:06
I searched up “ best editing apps for free” and I was pretty excited at first but for free it doesn’t even lets you rearrange the order u want the videos in, search music in a bar or even add words or filters without paying. And if u pay it’s alotttt of money
$120 and they still have me as FREE Subscription
by Song river on 2020/06/05 17:58

by Lilianagalrules on 2020/06/03 17:49
First off, you paywall features that should be free such as making a video with more then 1 video footage! Also, I was hoping for something not paywalled so yeah. This is very bad.
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 & 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 & 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.
I hate auto subscriptions. Why are these still a thing?
by cdbennett1231 on 2019/03/24 14:06
Don’t be like me, read the fine print. An add for this app appeared on my feed and I just wanted to play around and check it out, so I opted in on the free trial. Since my phone already saves my payment info and such, I did not realize my account would automatically be charged after the trial. I spent over $60 (2 months) before realizing it was charging me (I had deleted the app from my phone not knowing I was subscribed). I didn’t even end up using the app! So, be careful and take your time. If this is the app for you, great, if you’re just bored and decide to click on the advertisement and check it out, be wary of the auto charges since they will not refund you. Personally, I believe automatically enrolling people with a subscription without making it 100% transparent should be illegal, and doesn’t make me believe you have a great product. Great product sells itself, and doesn’t need to rely on people’s lack of awareness. This is just my opinion.
Got very greedy
by BigT54 on 2018/05/20 02:35
I use to love this app but they slowly became so greedy. Charging you for so many ridiculous things that people do for free. You can’t even save your own videos unless you subscribe to their monthly fee, A total rip off I’m done with this app. The blocking you from doing so many things unless you pay. Don’t waste your time or your money, they became very greedy and there’s many other app developers the do just as good a job if not better for a lot less. The latest update put the nail in the coffin for me and I would like to encourage you all to not purchase this app unless you’re willing to spend money every single month just to use it.
Not worth the money and VERY poor customer support
by artc1688 on 2019/05/21 19:50
Heard from a friend about this SW and it’s ability to automate the creation process. Decided to give it a try. The very short version (15sec?) was cute and decided to try the 7 days “professional “ version. When I realized Tencent, Google and other apps offer similar feature and convenient for free, I decided it it not worth the money. However, the cancellation process for the trial version was not simple at all!!!!! I looked all over and unable to find ANYWHERE within he app on how to cancel the subscription! I wrote to customer support looking for help and the response from customer response was not helpful and kept asking me why I didn’t like the SW! After mutual attempts they sent me the link and told me I have to go into the iTunes account and cancel it!!! Also, by this time they have already charged me and now I have to beg ITunes to return my money because the customer support was poor and the cancellation process was unclear and difficult. Try Tencent SW or Google, it’s free and you don’t have to deal with magisto customer support!!!!
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'm willing to pay for the business acct if there's some sort of guarantee that I can actually get my videos in the hd quality it shows me playing the video WITHIN the app before I download it to my phone or ig.. I actually was about to jump on paying for a year right before creating the first movie glad I didn’t - I've also written your customer service and no one ever got back to me about questions I’ve asked on both ig dm and emails
Want to love it
by Dustysage on 2018/12/29 22:34
There is so much to move about this App. It DOES make BEAUTIFUL videos. Unfortunately, the lack of controls means that most videos are unuasable in the end. Too often, the software selects clips which are unimportant or draw attention to the wrong things. And almost always, the clips are shown in such an out of order fashion that the video makes no sense. Two quick enhancements would fix that problem for me. 1) allow me to set the order the clips are shown. And 2) allow me to select a hot spot on video clips that I want to make sure are featured. For example, if I’m making a video of my day at Disneyland, I don’t want the fireworks to show up first, I want them to be the grand finale. I don’t want the people in the crowd to be the focus, but rather my own friends or the attractions themselves. I think this is an easy fix with just a few additions to the edit tools.
Lack of clarification on cancelling trial period and very poor customer service
by XCrystallineX on 2019/09/10 22:34
Do not download this app. I downloaded this app because it said it was free. After making an account, I was immediately surprised when it said that after a seven day free trial I would automatically start paying for a subscription to use it. The site claims that you can cancel the trial at any point, but I have been unsuccessful at finding any way to do that. There is no where on the site that allows you to simply cancel your free trial, and no instructions on how to do so. After deleting my account, there is also no way for me to contact the developers for help. They have no contact information, like emails or phone numbers that you can contact for assistance. The only way to ask for their help is if you login. I only learned after the fact that if you delete your account and/or the app, your subscriptions will continue regardless. I don’t know what to do and I can’t contact them for help.
Potential to be Great
by Rearea1 on 2017/11/11 21:13
This could be a great app if only it would work better without Wi-Fi. There seems to be a little glitch with my app it will not work if I'm not in Wi-Fi. It's also hard to edit you have to go through the whole process before allowing you to re-order photos, delete photos, add photos, change length of time, or make any changes it has to go through the entire process before you could do it again. It's kind of a bummer and a waste of time that the editing is not easy to use. Also wish that you could choose where you want the music to start instead of only being able to play the music from the beginning of the song. Finally, it would be the best if you could make movies over 4 minutes.
I really tried
by HQuinzelDMD on 2019/07/23 13:52
I decided to try this app and really wanted to like this app but it fell really short. The templates are a cool idea but every time I did a new video it wasn’t good. Even though there is an option to go back and edit the slides, the editor is super difficult to use. Coming from an iMovie and video shop editing background, I don’t get why the video editor is so lacking. To show my effort I edited one video 8 times with different lengths and templates just to give it a good try and just came out unhappy. I would love it if maybe the app was set up like iMovie and we were able to use the templates so we could alter the footage more easily. The automatic editor just isn’t that great. Maybe if your videos you don’t speak a lot this can work. Even when I selected the speech only option it still edited and cut in awkward places that were difficult to go back and edit.
A lot of glitch going on
by Whittier Lee on 2019/10/26 02:05
I have been working on this video for 3 days already and I cannot finished it because of this glitches on Magisto from replacing a photo (not replacing the photo that I want ) or even uploading a new one whether it’s from my own photo library or from their istock folder. Saving the video file is a huge huge disappointment as after I spent about 4hrs making a video , it didn’t saved actually at this time 7hrs after I tried to saved it, it was still in that status of waiting for few minutes and will notify me when it’s ready. This app is SO EXPENSIVE! And this is what I’m gonna get? I never paid an expensive app before , I trusted that this app is superb but it was a HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT , HUGE WASTE OF TIME MAKING MY VIDEO THAT DID NOT SAVE AND HUGE WASTE OF MONEY AND I actually would like to demand a refund for this app but I’m gonna figure that out later on. NOT WORTH YOUR MONEY!
Misleading
by Rkjest on 2018/09/21 14:27
Terribly misleading in the descriptions and functions of this app. First of all, note that it comes up first in the App Store with an “Ad” listed next to it- which means they pay for sponsorship and push faulty reviews!! I doubt that all of these five stars are legitimate, as there are so many problems throughout. From there, they push multi-tiered subscriptions on you with any attempt to explore the app. The user interface doesn’t make any sense. There aren’t tools for you to use on your own- you have no option but to choose a pre-designed template. It hardly makes any sense! I’m appalled that the App Store allows a company to push this obvious scam. And obviously the devs are “listening:” it’s more like defending themselves and trying to rake in the cash in any way possible. If they are a legitimate company that actually cares, focus on creating a good product that works instead of pawning this off to us like Snake Oil salesmen.
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.
Magisto is Amazing
by JonD2019 on 2019/04/19 23:52
I make a movie every month and for every holiday and occasion! People always marvel at how amazing they are. But I feel guilty taking the credit since the Magisto app does all the work. I just select photos, vids, theme, music, title and time and in just a few minutes, Magisto creates a professional looking video! I can’t believe how the app is able to zoom, splice and transition so perfectly every time. It’s really astonishing. If I was to use a traditional photo editing app to accomplish the same result, it would take me 10 times as long! Magisto has been a part of our family memory making life since 2015 and it’s now indispensable! Try it, you’ll love it!
Misrepresented
by L💚CA on 2018/08/06 13:52
I tried the free business trial, because it said I could easily cancel within a week in “settings”. I tried it, the video quality was awful and there weren’t anymore options for creating a pro level video/slide show than my free apps. For $30 I expected way more than my free apps. Then, When I went to cancel, it turns out you have to cancel in ITUNES SETTINGS, not the app settings. Had I known this I wouldn’t have done the trial (I rarely do trials and checked to make sure it was easy to cancel), my iTunes account has been very problematic for years. Took me 3 hours to resolve the situation and customer support at Magisto had zero ability to fix it on their end and didn’t apologize for the misleading copy. Wish I had an option for zero stars. The customer support team is fairly quick to answer your emails, to tell you that they can not and will not do anything to help.
Better and Better
by Sirhc401 on 2018/04/11 21:49
I have used Magisto for a few years now. They have come a long way from the few cool clips you could make. Video collages could not be made simpler and edits allow you to make tweaks until you love it. They make great 1:30 to 2:30 min videos to capture our trips and vacations to share with family and friend, plus go back and live in the land of nostalgia. If I could critique one thing, it’s that as they have grown it has been more focused on business subscriptions and they don’t keep/update styles like they used to. However, they have expanded music selection. Looking forward to more content in the future!
Best App to Auto Generate movies
by Phil222 on 2019/05/12 04:27
I have use this app for the last three years and I’ve tried dozens of different video editing apps and I also use more complex ones like Adobe Premier and this one has always been the one that I go back to because of how well it is able to intelligently choose parts of clips the best fit the movie altogether and the template style options and music options are far better than other apps so your movies are more likely to be unique. It also handles the large amount of data without bugs and renders video quickly. Great app And I look forward to seeing what’s to come.
BE WARNED - 1 trial even if it’s been 5 years
by Mollewog on 2018/06/27 13:07
I recently trialed, or so I thought, this app. After searching through multiple video editing apps, I came across this one and “trialed” it. I didn’t realize I had purchased it until my bank statement showed it. I had no response from this company, nor Apple, to me signing for a free trial letting me know I had actually purchased the app. According to Magisto, it’s Apple’s policy for a one time free trial. Ok. I understand. Perhaps it was in the fine print... but I believe that Magisto should care for their potential customers and reiterate that... or at the very least give a warning when signing for the free trial that it is not actually a free trial. Sidenote - I apparently signed up 5 years ago when my baby was a few weeks old. I had completely forgotten about it. So, my fault..for not reading the fine print somewhere, wherever it is. And for forgetting I had tried a free trial. I get it and I paid the 32 dollars for this app. Lesson learned... but felt I should let others know so they don’t make the same mistake I did. Bottom line - good app but not for the price. You can find better for less $$. I don’t trust this company so I don’t plan to use it nor will I recommend it.
Magisto App will make your family and friends cry tears of joy
by Jumpinjackfire on 2017/12/20 15:46
I don't generally write reviews. However this Magisto app is special. It syncs together videos and pictures making you the photographer look like you are as good of a movie director as Ron Howard. My pictures and videos of vacations, friends weddings, holidays spent with family, Eagle Scout ceremony, etc are priceless. I like to take several pictures and short video clips of 10 to 30 seconds. Then just pick the pic and videos you want. Select a music theme from Magisto along with a title to your movie and Magesto's magic does the rest. Get This App. Enough Said!
I would probably not recommend it.
by The Nightmare Hour on 2019/05/27 23:14
Despite its ability to arrange your content into quality videos with minimal effort, there are a few things that stand in the way of me giving Magisto five stars. The app is unreasonably limited for those who cannot afford the premium addition. However, buying the premium addition leads to renewal the app doesn’t warn you about. Magisto actually makes it quite difficult to access the controls through which one might be able to cancel subscription. That is not the last of the problems, though. For those working on tablets rather than phones, there is no version that allows users to enable a landscape setting, contrary to many apps on the store. It’s these minor inconveniences that restricts me from being compelled to use the app.
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't mind paying that, but others like me don't. I think you should add the price in the video for this app so people know how much they need to pay. Next, I'm glad there is a 7 day trial, so i tried it out, but you have to have atleast 15 seconds of a video. When i make videos, i prefer to put together what i have so far, to see how it looks, and then add on. but mine was only about 6 seconds so far, so it wouldn't let me look at the progress. Other than that, it's a good app. If you are willing to pay, then i suggest it.
EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED WITH THE CHANGES
by Sheenalee1229 on 2019/11/15 22:40
I’ve used this app to make a few videos for awhile now and bought the subscription last month for premium where it was easy to see which templates I could use but now, every template I click on says I need to upgrade. This new change is very deceptive and I feel like I wasted my $ on the premium, only to be hustled into buying a more expensive subscription that I can’t even try to see what the upgrade is all about! Before they were reasonably priced and now this app is worthless unless you’re wanting to spend a lot of $ on their subscription, which will probably change again and be even more expensive. There’s also no phone support so you have to wait for them to respond via email for issues. I’ll be looking into other apps with better business practices.
Needs a music upgrade
by very, very useful on 2017/12/28 12:46
I use this app for a lot of things. I have the full professional upgrade. For the most part, this app does everything I need. The only downside, for me, seeing how much I use the app, is that more editing styles are needed. I would also strongly encourage the creators of this app to allow music from the users personal iTunes account. A lot of the music available works great with the videos. Again, for how frequently it’s used, Videos start to get repetitive without more editing and music selections.
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.
Dropped my rating to 2 star because..
by Maliceon on 2019/03/05 13:31
It used to be intuitive and now it's so random it's just clips and crap music. The #1 reason for using this app for getting to checkout all the new indy artists on the rise. Now it's just a lot of public domain stuff. Also I have a pro subscription and it still won't let me make a long video. Just a short or medium. After more than 5-6 years at the rate of $9.99 a month totaling around $600 one would think I could make a full 3min video by now. 😟 but no. I'm not going to renew my subscription this next billing cycle. It's not worth it. I will be back later in the year to check and see if any updates have improved the experience because I really did love this app for many years. I hope it gets back to good.
Subscription scam
by The Real Deli on 2018/12/05 18:10
I had cancelled this months ago and realized in an accounting audit that it was still connected to my iTunes Store account. Just went through the cancellation process again and the way that it is designed as a trap to make you think you’ve canceled when in fact it takes two tries and some back stepping to get a message that tells you to go to the iTunes account to cancel, which in and of itself is a convoluted process. Your cancellation process is clearly a trap, and I wish iTunes would regulate people like you from using their payment platform. You may have a good rating for people who want to use your app, you get a one star from me for your support telling me there was nothing they could do to help that I should contact the iTunes Store. Standby your rip off program.
READ FOR INFO ON HOW TO CANCEL
by Maimoon416@ on 2019/04/15 07:42
Their free trial was helpful but it was a pain to cancel everything. ***READ FOR INFO ON HOW TO CANCEL -go to the Settings app -then go to iTunes & App Stores -tap on Apple ID at the top -select view Apple ID -go down to Subscriptions -click on the app you want to cancel and cancel it Hope this helped some of you since it took me forever sitting in frustration and anxiety to cancel the app on time before it charged me. Instead of just saying we should cancel in iTunes they should explain how to do it. SMH. I loved the app honestly. I didn’t need anything too professional since I was just using it for family and friends but it was really too expensive for what it was. I can’t be paying $20-$30 a month for this when I only used it for one project in the last month. I have other more important priorities, bills to pay for. If it were $10-$20 for the whole app, not just monthly then I feel like more people would buy it. This monthly thing is really not helping you guys. Feels more like a swindlers scam than a professional app.
Stopping Payments is a nightmare!!!
by Stormyrose on 2018/06/21 12:33
I was going to cancel my subscription for a month or two but to do so is seemingly impossible. I cancelled from the app, or so thought. When I got charged again I though, “well, I must have done it incorrectly”. This time, I get a pop up that says I have to unsubscribe through my iTunes id. I follow the steps to unsubscribe from there-it’s listed but there is no unsubscribe option. I email support and am refunded $7.57. Upon closer look at my account I find that when I “ugraded” from a $6.99 plan to a $15 plan it wasn’t actually an upgrade. I was still being charged both. Upgrade apparently means something very different to Magisto. I file a dispute with PayPal. They are still looking into it. Today My BANK account-not PayPal is charged another $15 from Magisto!!! I go to look at my iTubes Subscription and it is listed as cancelled. Magisto is still telling me I have to unsubscribe through iTunes and not them. This is a mess! What am i supposed to do to stop the payments-close my bank account and PayPal???? These people cannot be trusted. Not only have I lost money, but the amount of time I’ve wasted on just unsubscribing from this ridiculous app is absolutely absurd!!
Disappointing
by @janicejuvices_ on 2018/12/30 16:36
The process of getting the final result was a little confusing and time wasting but it wasn’t horrible. The BAD part was the video quality :/ I looked through the reviews and saw that other people had the same problem and the response that some people got was that I had to use the same device that I recorded with... which I did and still got horrible quality. Another problem that some people had was cancelling their subscription. At first I was panicking because their cancellation process was confusing and the price was quite up there, but all I had to do was go on their help services and they lead me through the proper steps. Overall, the app isn’t that great and it’s confusing to manage at first.
Not what it used to be.
by TheEgo on 2018/11/03 21:47
I was a fan of Magistro for the simplicity of making a good short video in HD in their early days, it was an App way ahead of Apple an Google In terms of making automated videos from pictures and anything you have in your photo album. It was perhaps the first AI video making App. Recently downloaded the App and was totally disappointed. The interface was changed in many ways, trying to blend the App more into a social media platform, which is not what you are looking in the first place. The billing is horrible! You can’t even make a video without committing to a subscription and despite the “free to cancel” option I won’t expend time on any app that if is not what I need will have to devote time on canceling subscriptions. It was a great App, so sorry for what they made out of it.
This trash app cant do anything it says it can
by PixL_Acsam on 2018/11/15 20:30
This app says that it can edit and make videos and movies professionally, but I tried it and it doesnt even let you set a specific order for the clips you use, it just randomly plays them out of order. All I want is to cut portions of a video but this piece of trash expects me to pay $25 a month for a version that adds even more useless crap. If I am expected to pay for trash editing then I might as well throw all my life savings into a fire, there really is no difference in this case. Take away the subscription crap, then I will consider using this cheap, good for nothing app. Hope the Magisto CEO are having fun writing fake reviews about how fun this app is, because I can clearly see that this cant do anything more than just screw up your videos.
Subscribe and they'll show you all the templates you CAN'T use.
by ptezco on 2019/04/12 19:27
I’m also sick and tired about not being able to filter outer the filters I am not subscribed to. I am ALREADY PAYING MONEY for this thing. It is frustrating the sensation of paying and not having access to a bunch of stuff. I know that’s the way things are but that doesn't have to be rubbing it in on my face EVERY TIME I try to make a video. Just put a filter: I pay for the so-called PREMIUM. IT's $5 a month. Not nothing. A great deal of money if you ask me. I deserve to have clean access to the stuff I have access to. The product itself is worth paying for it. What is annoying and frustrating is the aggressive marketing tactics they use to entice you to upgrade.
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
Family Memories
by Patsylee321 on 2017/09/21 17:46
This app is an easy, quick way to share special family moments! I love that I can add music from my own playlist! The app provides a great selection of themes and allows me to choose a length that is easy to share on Facebook to share with friends. I have used it with my preschool class to share with parents, adding just the right song that demonstrates the new concept we are learning and the students actively involved in learning activities! The students love seeing their movie as well.
Okay...
by Drewawesome on 2018/05/28 22:18
Overall I like the concept of it and I do enjoy it, have some issues. First, it doesn’t put the pictures where you would expect them to be. Also if you have more than one clip it’s not always in the order you’d think it was in. If people are actually making your videos they should make your videos make since, and putting clips in weird orders, putting pictures in wrong spots, is not the way to do it. Also I wish you didn’t have to pay to make your minutes longer than a minute and a half, and the only way you can make them longer is by going premium! I wish this app was just a little thought out better, and it would be nice if it where updated
BEEARE! They automatically charged me without notifying me
by Smommy2 on 2019/09/04 20:41
I would in NO way sign up with this company or even use the trial. They automatically charged me a subscription fee and I did not even realize that I had signed up because I thought I was just playing around with the app and then it automatically signed me up without me knowing it. A days later I was charged $30 and no one from this company will help me get my refund. I was literally just charged $30 yesterday and I immediately contacted the company several times to get a refund and no one will help me get a refund. I tried contacting Apple and I just get an automatic response that says they will not give me a refund. I’m not one to normally complain but this is the WORST customer service ever - Honestly it feels like a scam to take your money. I finally figured out how to cancel my subscription after searching around for an hour trying to figure it out and canceled it but I can’t get a refund. I sincerely hope that someone from this company will see this review and decide that it would be best to give me a refund since I am not using the app and it just charged me yesterday.
Be careful...
by Fhsrhcdedgvdetyhgr on 2019/08/22 22:02
I downloaded the free trial for this app a few weeks ago. I knew that it would not serve the purpose for which I downloaded it within 60 seconds and immediately followed steps to cancel the subscription (knowing that it would charge me the following month if I did not cancel). When I attempted to cancel the subscription, the app offered me a discounted rate to avoid losing my subscription fee, I declined the offer and confirmed that I would like to cancel the subscription. Now I am receiving a billing notification from the App Store for a $30 monthly charge for the privilege of using this app for 60 seconds. I have since discovered that there is a very deeply embedded cancellation process and have truly (hopefully) canceled my subscription. Beware of this app, it is far from free.
Scam Don’t Do It!
by The GTR Guy on 2019/02/24 04:08
I barely tried the app itself because I noticed the negative reviews right after I did the free subscription. Of course, I was then stuck like the many others in the reviews. It took me forever to get around the scam of unsubscribing. Real slick scam to have an unsubscribe button in the app that doesn’t truly unsubscribe you. Had to go into itunes account and kill it there under the subscriptions section. Don’t know why Apple allows this garbage but I’ll have to watch my account for the next few months to make sure they don’t hit me like they did others. I’m never loading a new app again before reading the reviews! You have been warned! Seems like they found a way to give themselves a nice star rating to fool you too. These guys are good.
Not a video editing app! Beware
by Real Thinkscape on 2018/10/04 22:46
You upload all your private videos/photos to some company's servers. This is a front for a website that generates montages from your clips with some effects added. When you upload, you have to accept a long terms of service agreement document, written by lawyers, in a language that will make you cringe. Basically you give away your videos and hope for the best... If you're fine with that, expect to wait for hours for your HD and 4k videos to finish uploading... Oh and also don't expect any decent resolution results - they limit the output resolution to laughable SD, or if you pay heaps you get 720p (like it's 2010 again)... Or you can pay even more for "business" (!?) to get the privilege to download a last-gen 1080p version.
meh..
by mrsvle on 2018/03/14 08:31
Not sure you can really purchase creativity. Effects are canned and cliche, music is bland and innocuous. And the constant pressure to upgrade is obscene. Also the free tryout version is so limited you’re not inspired to upgrade to the “Professional” version which lets you do incredibly amazing things like change the order of your pictures and add a logo. You won’t be able to download your video unless you upgrade, and sharing your video is essentially advertising for Magisto since their logo will be all over it. In the long run you’ll be much better off getting a real video editing program and learning how to use it. ps. pretty sure most of these review ratings have been jacked
Not easy to operate and difficult to cancel
by no way 22 on 2018/10/16 15:23
I uploaded 72 photos. It did not tell me that it was too many. It automatically condensed my photos and did not include all of my photos. The editing options are very difficult and not easy to operate. So I never managed to make the video the way I wanted with all photos. Then I tried to cancel. Which there are multiple steps in order to cancel. You have to cancel it in the app. Then go to your Apple ID settings and unsubscribe to which I’m still unsure if I’m successfully cancelled. They get you to sign up for a free trial then will automatically charge you if you don’t unsubscribe but I can’t unsubscribe successfully. VERY CROOKED way of doing things especially when I’m not even satisfied with the apps function.
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.
