I downloaded this app and created a profile account , I thought it was a free subscription based on the info that was advertised and after a month you would be billed. I used the app one time made a video to test it out and then cancelled the subscription a few days later and was charged $29.99. Why am I being charged after the subscription was cancelled? Not cool. Do not down load app!!
I am completely angry.
by ItsKyoshi on 2019/09/20 06:23
I clicked on this app not knowing that somehow after clicking a add it would bill me and make an automatic subscription! I should have read more carefully this is completely upsetting since I I deleted the app and unknowingly was charged. $30 is the amount that I’ve paid that is a huge amount of money for not using it. I think you guys could do better then really just plainly tricking potential customers. Would’ve rate higher if this didn’t happen.
It doesn’t get your full video. It cuts out the entire half

Terrible warning WILL CHARGE YOU FOR FREE TRAIL!!
It was great! Until the purchases...
by K🍪🍩🍩🍦 on 2019/09/16 13:29
I used this app for a good 3 years and absolutely loved it! It was an amazing way to make movie trailers, mini movies, and a way to take all my vacation pictures/videos and keep them forever without deleting them eventually. But that can’t happen now because you have to PURCHASE something to save your photos to camera roll. For certain templates, I get it. But this is ridiculous. At LEAST let me save my movie! I already can’t choose whatever template I want, the least you can do it let me save it.
It distorts the clips 👎🏻

It’s A Trap!! Auto-Subscription; NOT FREE
by Mr.Ripoffwatcher on 2019/09/16 01:09
Another review has it spot on. This app advertises as Free but, suckers you into subscription which you need to cancel to get out. This is entrapment. And it’s a despicable behavior by this developer. And, even it were great (which it’s not) it is EXPENSIVE. Buyer Beware. Watch what you click on!
30$ A Month? You're Kidding.
by VinceWylde on 2019/09/15 15:53
I have professional editing software on my home PC that was purchased in full with what is a two month subscription on here. That's insane and horrifically over priced. 10 bucks you could justify. But 30$ is just greed. The software itself seems solid for being a mobile app. But the price needs to come out of the rafters. Just laughable.
Not satisfied at all !!
by L.a.r.a.h on 2019/09/15 15:25
You guys won’t let me cancel my account. I just downloaded it today and I don’t like it so I was trying to cancel my subscription but from the looks of it you guys and hustling me and didn’t give me a realistic option to cancel. Remind you I just downloaded this app today so I have before 7 days to cancel ! Plz cancel my subscription or I will sue !
Scam
by DrOrange27 on 2019/09/15 00:42
Okay so i think paying for app is okay and developers should charge to use their app since a lot of work and money goes into making it. However charging by the month is annoying because I probably wont use it every month. But the biggest problem is once you pay for the $30 a month you cant even use the full app?! You’re basically is the free version of an app yet you’re paying $30 a month for it. So you have to upgrade to 40 or 50 dollars a month. Thats insane. Be upfront with how much it costs and if someone pays for it you should give them full access.
Card charged INSTANTLY
by there is no trial. they charge on 2019/09/14 02:52
I opted for the 7 day trial but my card was charged immediately 😒 . I cannot contact anyone to get a refund . And the worst part is , the music they have is crap and you cannot add music from your phone.
Awful
by Hard_Xc_KTTN on 2019/09/13 05:15
Just filters. No editing. Almost impossible to get rid of. They bully you to keep it.

Annoyed
by MisT96 on 2019/09/11 23:05
It appeared free, so I went through the process of downloading it, etc.... after all of that and them getting my email, it said I had to pay to do it or do a 7 day free trial where they bill (a lot) after 7 days. No thanks and annoyed you wasted my time.

Do not download unless you’re gonna pay.
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.

Horrible
by Mattyboy Padezan on 2019/09/09 19:48
You can’t even save it to your camera roll😂. This app is worthless. Took literally 20 minutes of my time for nothing. I’m being considerate and giving one star😂. People who are installing and wasting your money on this app. I feel bad for you.

Disappointed
by BEAR3586 on 2019/09/08 15:51
You’re only allowed 7 photos before they want you to buy premium which is 30$ for an APP!
Glad I read the reviews
by MoLoJo on 2019/09/07 23:27
$30 a month for an app that basically does the same thing at iMovie? I think I’d rather keep my Netflix subscription and my license for Photoshop and Lightroom, since all of that is the same price...
Unauthorized Charges from app. BEWARE
by Bugger14 on 2019/09/07 19:16
Even the fine print is unclear. It mentions nothing about a “trial period” but it does say you have to PHYSICALLY SELECT a package either business access or professional access. Neither of these access features were selected; yet they charged my account for 3 months before my bank caught the odd reoccurring fees of $32.46. I promptly cancelled the subscription. I never authorized either of these charges and asked for a refund. Even the fine print suggest that you get “free access” and there is no mention of a time frame for a “trial period”. It’s very misleading and a bit confusing. Apple claimed they carefully review my request for the refund. This request lasted all of 1 min to decline a refund- as I was still chatting with the agent online when my refund request was denied! Not too happy with this either. The app is certainly not worth $32.47. Why is it so difficult just to lay down clearly what the terms are for the app before a download? I know; no one would be sucked into the devious plan to be charged monthly subscription rates unbeknownst to them. It’s sad really. Are there not any honest people left in the world. I am very disappointed and I am not through fighting to get a refund! Do not purchase or download this app. Beware!

DO NOT DOWNLOAD

STOP!!! Do not download!! There is no way to contact customer service. My kid downloaded this by accident and charged me 30$.. do not click download button!! I have looked everywhere on seeing how to get refunded my money!! DO NOT DOWNLOAD unless you want to be charge 30$ or more!!!
Don’t get it!
by GRocky310 on 2019/09/04 23:08
I wanted to try the 7 day trial. Before becoming a subscriber. But I was immediately charged the $30 monthly fee because my iTunes had previously been linked to the account about a year ago. That’s pretty stupid. Don’t do it. I even contacted their support team and they couldn’t help me.
🤬🙄
by angry person1258 on 2019/09/04 21:20
Charged me 33.50 for a app I never ever use and ughh it makes me so pi**ed like I didn’t even give the app permission either!
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.
Useless $30/month app
by concentriq on 2019/09/04 14:43
The sole purpose of this app seems to be collecting $30/month from people who forget to cancel their subscription after 7 day trial. I found no other useful features in it: at least nothing that would cost $30/month.

Great app.. if it wasn’t Thirty Dollars

NOT WHAT IT USED TO BE
by zoe b12 on 2019/09/02 18:46
I downloaded this app about three or two years ago when I first found it and it was PERFECT, I could upload my own music without a problem and cut my clips into the clips I wanted for the video. Here it is 2019 and now the app is wanting me to pay to add more than a certain amount of time the pictures and videos will take up on my video & wont let me upload my own music. First the app tells me to download the song to my phone instead of just iCloud, so I do & then it tells me it can’t be used for some reason, yet I pay for iMusic so I don’t know why it won’t work.. honestly just going to undownload the app and on the look out for something better 👀
Doesn’t work
by EzE2019 on 2019/09/02 16:44
I tried to make a couple of videos it says it takes a few minutes but an hour later no video. Also it’s $29.95 a month kind of steep. Also once you register there is no way to make it a personal account or business account. I assume the personal account is cheaper. In my experience companies usually charge 3 times as much for business accounts. Kind of a bummer it seamed like a good app in the preview.
Free trial
by Nick11222 on 2019/09/02 12:04

Does everything I want it to do, but I’m not paying $360 a year to be able to rearrange components of my video or cue the part I intended to see and download the HD video I provided. I’ll do it the hard way.
This is not a free app
by K8tidyd on 2019/09/02 01:14
Everyone knows that not all apps are free. We expect to pay for a good one. This app opens with you can use it for a minute free and then you have to pay for it. I deleted it. I did not use it. If I can’t experience creating with this app before I give up my financial information I don’t need it.

Wish I could edit the actual placement
by Moxy momma on 2019/08/28 13:21
I am in love with this app but I hate how a lot of the zoom ins and the video segments can’t be tweaked. Instead of zooming in on my son’s face, it zooms in to his stomach. The video portions are cute but I wish I could choose which part they’d use the sound for. It’s so close to being the perfect app for me but not yet there.

Video Photos
by Ftyugff on 2019/08/27 19:17
This app says you can select up to 60 pictures. When I selected them it did not show all of the pics that I had selected in the video l. When I went to the help section to find out what the problem was it said that all of the photos may not be included in the video. If that’s the case then don’t give deceiving information. My reason for purchasing the app was the number of photos that I could place in the video. I’m canceling the app. I was very disappointed.

Not Worth the Download
by Lola2137 on 2019/08/26 07:21
I downloaded the app purely for leisure because I wanted to add some music to some of the videos I’ve taken but I’m guessing without paying the ridiculous monthly fee some people are mentioning, you literary get almost no options. No modern music options at all, very limited editing and for someone who isn’t going to be uploading as a professional, I’m very disappointed in this app. The scariest part though, is that I see A LOT of 1 & 2 star reviews and somehow the overall score is still 5 stars... Is that how it’s supposed to work? Lol Anyway, save yourself the trouble (and the money) and find another app that will do what you need it to do.
Love this app but...
by @7HisAddictioN7 on 2019/08/26 01:09
I love this app and use it a lot! I even recommend it to my friends👍 however, I really don’t like the restrictions that can only be lifted by paying for “in-app-purchases” I truly feel like this is a tricky & misleading move by the developers of the app 😒
I might like it.

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.

It tells you that your video has to be so freaking short and you have to pay 50 dollars a month to have it longer and a bunch of other stuff which is way to over priced and you can’t even get that creative with it

by Emperor Palpatine Rules on 2019/08/12 21:29
I tried to use a 21 minute video I had, in hopes that the AI could process it and pull out all the appropriate parts for a trailer, but I can’t even use the clip without upgrading to premium or professional and I don’t want to upgrade to those because too many people said they weren’t good and they had to upgrade AGAIN to business just to properly edit. Please remove the max time on the videos I use in my camera roll. I spent a lot of time making that video and I was really hoping Magisto could make a trailer for it.
We love it for our real estate business!

Magisto makes it hard to unsubscribe
by Dr. O'Death on 2019/08/10 23:28
If you subscribe to any Magisto plan, you better want it for life. I subscribed (by mistake) as I was checking out video editors. So, I tried to cancel the subscription, which is pricy, by the way, on my iPhone. However, on their subscription page with Apple, unlike all other apps I’ve subscribed to, there’s no option for cancelling the subscription. So, I went online to their site and tried to unsubscribe, only to be told I have to cancel through Apple! Then I went to simply cancel the whole account, but a warning comes up that if you don’t cancel the subscription first, you still may be charged the monthly subscription! It’s a no win situation. I have a feeling they know exactly how hard it is to cancel subscriptions. It’s shady. I’ve messaged them about this. Got my fingers crossed that they’ll cancel my subscription and account.

Love it just wish the pro version was cheaper in price
Best App so far
by Just dance 4 fingers on 2019/08/08 20:41
I really enjoy using the app as it’s very user friendly. I enjoy the ability to add my own music and really make the videos come to life.

A pretty fun app. Wish you could make movies a little bigger without having to upgrade though. But I still enjoy it.
Not worth the money
by Jake__46 on 2019/08/07 14:38
Magisto is far too expensive for what it can do, and tricks you into paying the full amount if you forget to cancel the trial. $30 for a full service may be worth it, but $30 a month is unacceptable. Would not recommend unless you have a wedding or event coming up and a real professional is not available.
Awful

This app is awful. I just wanted to add music over it, and I only have Spotify and not Apple Music but regardless the music provided is just absolute trash. I never even heard of one of them. Get your game up.
AMAZING

I am making a video for my boyfriend containing a ton of pictures from our first year together. I tried iMovie and it was a NIGHTMARE, at least on iPhone. I was worried I wouldn’t be able to find another good editing software. At first glance, I didn’t like how this app seemed to do everything for you, but I went ahead and put the pictures in and put a couple random settings real quick, just to see if it was something I wanted to put more time into. The result was almost exactly what I was looking to make! With just a couple minor tweaks, my finished product will be ready! I am so very impressed and surprised in the best way! The only thing I would change is the fact that you can’t put over 100 pictures in one video, but the rest of this app was so incredible that I will work with that and it will still end up being the best video I’ve ever made! 100% would recommend!
Can I at least see if it works first??
by Zanesworld1 on 2018/07/25 06:10
So far- 15 minutes in- I’m not a fan—BUT, gimme a minute more and let’s see what this thang can do... In response to staff inquiry: First, thank You for your response, it’s good to know that the developers ARE listening. Second, I apologize for the untimely follow-up and upon your notification I immediately searched my inventory for your app to refresh my overall review. After realizing I’d deleted it from my downloads, I went back to figure out why. Instantly I recalled the experience I had, and simultaneously experienced it again. From the gate, I’m bombarded with in-app purchases— ones that actually require the app to work well at all. The selections I’m left with WITHOUT coming straight from my pocket, do not compare to the apps I have used for several years- and that DO NOT hinder my video process by constantly soliciting up-sales. I understand everybody has to make money- I understand technology is not free nor is ANYTHING, however if I DO download a FREE app (and they all have in-app purchases) I want to be able to use it WITHOUT a salesman at every turn. In fairness regarding what your app actually does— for the Novice, unexperienced, super-busy, or just unimaginative person- my opinion is that it DOES make the process easier. For those people, this is probably a good start- for ‘not’ those people, i would believe it’s not much use. Again, thank you for taking time to listen to your public. Z.
Not as many options as it seems
by itssydneycnt on 2019/01/26 22:03
I started the free trial to see what the $30 a month entails, must be good right? Considering the amount of video editing apps available at no cost you’d think one that’s $360 a year would have TONS of options, not the case. The second star is because this app MIGHT be useful for people who have no clue what they are doing or are super duper lazy. You can’t edit which animations are used, or what order all the special effects and what not are. You basically put in your videos and hope that it does an okay job. VERY basic, this would be very useful for someone who is 80 years old and has no idea how to do any editing and isn’t willing to learn. If you want to edit that font it’s gonna cost you $80 a month, which is $960 a year. I don’t mind paying for something that would be worth it, but this app clearly thinks they are sitting on a gold mine with offering nothing extra that similar apps also have. Finagle with a couple free apps, and figure out how to use their animations and music, it will be the same if not better than this app. I am canceling immediately and using inshot, you can speed up videos, slow them down, put them upside down, add animations, music, text, and you can control it all, for free. I believe I purchased a package of animations for like $1.99, which is way more reasonable and realistic for what the app does.
Filthy tactics
by habarsamian on 2018/07/04 12:28
Do not download this app. They make it extremely difficult to cancel your “subscription”. Here’s my story: Looking to get into video editing so I go look for some apps on the App Store and see magisto. I read the description of their app and see that the download is just a free trial and I would need a subscription. I think to myself ok too easy I will just get in the app and cancel the auto renew as soon as I download. I don’t like paying subscriptions and I wasnt too devoted to editing anything yet for a price ( and if I was i definitely would not use this app , the video it produced was horrible). anyway I get into the app and immediately go to “cancel subscription”. I hit the cancel button and go through the process several times and I never seem to get a solid confirmation. So I decide to close the app and reopen it. When I returned to the settings screen I see the option to “return to subscription “ so i think ok it must have been cancelled. Apparently not the case because I had a$30 charge on my card today. And apparently the developer support is telling people on here that if they set up a subscription through their Apple ID they need to cancel the subscription through their Apple ID. However seems a bit misleading to have a “cancel subscription” button that doesn’t actually work. I will get my money refunded.
Want to cancel the subscription? Mwa-ha-ha
by Big Giant Octopus on 2018/07/26 12:51
I faced the same issue as some reviewers below: signed for a trial to check the full functionality of the app for the further occasional use when I need it with no intention to pay for Professional version (as I don’t need it). Before signing for the trial I checked the Terms to make sure on the way to unsubscribe, and it was stated to be done over My Account right in the app. So in a few days I cancelled the subscription the way it was requested in their Terms, however have been billed anyway, when the trial expired! After some emails back and forth with Magisto support I’ve been told that the process of cancellation is different from what they requested in their Terms and refund is also the authority of Apple. I don’t get it, why to have this misleading “Cancel your subscription” button in My Account, if it does nothing?? And why have describe the procedure of cancellation differently in the Terms visible upon signing up? All together it looks very filthy to me. Kudos for the support team replying and doing it fast. Nice and fun app in general, even the outcome quality of the video is horrible. But this billing filthy thing - baaaad, too bad, guys.
Super expensive not worth it.
by A honest usert on 2019/07/21 18:24
Today i just browsed around this app for a couple minutes, when it first gave me the option to join the 7 day trial i hit back because i do not like subscriptions, apparently it still let me use the app still and my sole purpose was to edit a small quick slideshow with my pictures that i could download. After like a 5 minute wait i tried downloading it and it says it wants a whole dollar for just a download?? It’s like you can’t really use the app for free except upload pictures or videos for other people on the app. When i tried to confirm that my account was not being charged i went to the settings in the app and tried to see if i was in the subscription.. i hit it serveral times and it did not load in. This was sketchy at first but i just thought it’s because i don’t have a subscription in this app maybe so i went to my apple id subscriptions and it said i had none.. i better not get charged 20$ for this app because it is not worth it at all.. you have amateur editing and features, most edits in this app you can do in a free one. I do not like this app it was a waste of time. In the description you guys should add all the fees included in the app.
I hate auto subscriptions. Why are these still a thing?
by cdbennett1231 on 2019/03/24 14:06
Don’t be like me, read the fine print. An add for this app appeared on my feed and I just wanted to play around and check it out, so I opted in on the free trial. Since my phone already saves my payment info and such, I did not realize my account would automatically be charged after the trial. I spent over $60 (2 months) before realizing it was charging me (I had deleted the app from my phone not knowing I was subscribed). I didn’t even end up using the app! So, be careful and take your time. If this is the app for you, great, if you’re just bored and decide to click on the advertisement and check it out, be wary of the auto charges since they will not refund you. Personally, I believe automatically enrolling people with a subscription without making it 100% transparent should be illegal, and doesn’t make me believe you have a great product. Great product sells itself, and doesn’t need to rely on people’s lack of awareness. This is just my opinion.
Got very greedy
by BigT54 on 2018/05/20 02:35
I use to love this app but they slowly became so greedy. Charging you for so many ridiculous things that people do for free. You can’t even save your own videos unless you subscribe to their monthly fee, A total rip off I’m done with this app. The blocking you from doing so many things unless you pay. Don’t waste your time or your money, they became very greedy and there’s many other app developers the do just as good a job if not better for a lot less. The latest update put the nail in the coffin for me and I would like to encourage you all to not purchase this app unless you’re willing to spend money every single month just to use it.
Not worth the money and VERY poor customer support
by artc1688 on 2019/05/21 19:50
Heard from a friend about this SW and it’s ability to automate the creation process. Decided to give it a try. The very short version (15sec?) was cute and decided to try the 7 days “professional “ version. When I realized Tencent, Google and other apps offer similar feature and convenient for free, I decided it it not worth the money. However, the cancellation process for the trial version was not simple at all!!!!! I looked all over and unable to find ANYWHERE within he app on how to cancel the subscription! I wrote to customer support looking for help and the response from customer response was not helpful and kept asking me why I didn’t like the SW! After mutual attempts they sent me the link and told me I have to go into the iTunes account and cancel it!!! Also, by this time they have already charged me and now I have to beg ITunes to return my money because the customer support was poor and the cancellation process was unclear and difficult. Try Tencent SW or Google, it’s free and you don’t have to deal with magisto customer support!!!!
Little to no editing freedom.
by Nim Num on 2018/06/06 19:33
I mean, for free, fine, whatever, but there is so little you can do! You have to have music, and you have to have a title appear on the video. I just needed to make a video that was “made together” to post on social media, not anything fancy (well, it isn’t FANCY, definitely not.) I gave it two stars instead of one because it would work for like a five year old (at least on the free one, no way was I going to be spending money on an editing APP when I have things like WeVideo.) I only got this app to be quick, and while it was quick, the video looked like crap, and you couldn’t even edit the video yourself! No creative freedom, and worst of all, it looks awful, let’s be clear. There is huge white letters that must play on the screen, and then you have awful music (which I wish they had a choice for NO MUSIC) in the background. I wouldn’t even recommend this for a home movie sort of thing. Don’t know what you would even do with it. Little editing freedom, and makes your simple videos stick into a box that they want your videos to fit in. Overall, this app wasn’t even comparable to iMovie! At least iMovie let’s you make your own video, which I was looking for an improvement from to edit videos together (not looking to make a horrible home movie, just edit videos together into one price, which one would think would be pretty basic for an video app.
Please change quality of final video cut
by ShennenEilleen on 2017/11/07 14:19
Ur videos look like total dogdoo no matter what you do - Magisto final edit destroys them - even when shot in 1080 for ig or on a dslr hd cam this app degrades the quality so bad.. so sad because I paid for a few months of this but a business account is wayyyy too much money.. I really would need to try it for a month before paying for an entire year - It actually destroyed two videos I made but I had to use them because my time is money - Tried filming different ways in higher quality and it just makes the films so low quality - I'm willing to pay for the business acct if there's some sort of guarantee that I can actually get my videos in the hd quality it shows me playing the video WITHIN the app before I download it to my phone or ig.. I actually was about to jump on paying for a year right before creating the first movie glad I didn’t - I've also written your customer service and no one ever got back to me about questions I’ve asked on both ig dm and emails
Want to love it
by Dustysage on 2018/12/29 22:34
There is so much to move about this App. It DOES make BEAUTIFUL videos. Unfortunately, the lack of controls means that most videos are unuasable in the end. Too often, the software selects clips which are unimportant or draw attention to the wrong things. And almost always, the clips are shown in such an out of order fashion that the video makes no sense. Two quick enhancements would fix that problem for me. 1) allow me to set the order the clips are shown. And 2) allow me to select a hot spot on video clips that I want to make sure are featured. For example, if I’m making a video of my day at Disneyland, I don’t want the fireworks to show up first, I want them to be the grand finale. I don’t want the people in the crowd to be the focus, but rather my own friends or the attractions themselves. I think this is an easy fix with just a few additions to the edit tools.
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.
Misleading
by Rkjest on 2018/09/21 14:27
Terribly misleading in the descriptions and functions of this app. First of all, note that it comes up first in the App Store with an “Ad” listed next to it- which means they pay for sponsorship and push faulty reviews!! I doubt that all of these five stars are legitimate, as there are so many problems throughout. From there, they push multi-tiered subscriptions on you with any attempt to explore the app. The user interface doesn’t make any sense. There aren’t tools for you to use on your own- you have no option but to choose a pre-designed template. It hardly makes any sense! I’m appalled that the App Store allows a company to push this obvious scam. And obviously the devs are “listening:” it’s more like defending themselves and trying to rake in the cash in any way possible. If they are a legitimate company that actually cares, focus on creating a good product that works instead of pawning this off to us like Snake Oil salesmen.
Magisto is Amazing
by JonD2019 on 2019/04/19 23:52
I make a movie every month and for every holiday and occasion! People always marvel at how amazing they are. But I feel guilty taking the credit since the Magisto app does all the work. I just select photos, vids, theme, music, title and time and in just a few minutes, Magisto creates a professional looking video! I can’t believe how the app is able to zoom, splice and transition so perfectly every time. It’s really astonishing. If I was to use a traditional photo editing app to accomplish the same result, it would take me 10 times as long! Magisto has been a part of our family memory making life since 2015 and it’s now indispensable! Try it, you’ll love it!
Amazing Video Processing Software!!!!
by Seasidesell on 2019/01/27 14:05
What this program does is nothing short of amazing. The amount of work and image processing and video processing it takes to combine and automatically make a video that looks incredibly manually made is amazing. Yes it’s not 100% perfect. There may be some scenes that need to be tweaked. But when I think of the amount of time I would have to spent doing this manually through Photoshop or Adobe After Effects I am totally blown away. Since I don’t use it for business the cost is a little bit high. I used it for my own personal videos. I wish they had an option where I could just pay one fee to purchase it.
Better and Better
by Sirhc401 on 2018/04/11 21:49
I have used Magisto for a few years now. They have come a long way from the few cool clips you could make. Video collages could not be made simpler and edits allow you to make tweaks until you love it. They make great 1:30 to 2:30 min videos to capture our trips and vacations to share with family and friend, plus go back and live in the land of nostalgia. If I could critique one thing, it’s that as they have grown it has been more focused on business subscriptions and they don’t keep/update styles like they used to. However, they have expanded music selection. Looking forward to more content in the future!
Misrepresented
by L💚CA on 2018/08/06 13:52
I tried the free business trial, because it said I could easily cancel within a week in “settings”. I tried it, the video quality was awful and there weren’t anymore options for creating a pro level video/slide show than my free apps. For $30 I expected way more than my free apps. Then, When I went to cancel, it turns out you have to cancel in ITUNES SETTINGS, not the app settings. Had I known this I wouldn’t have done the trial (I rarely do trials and checked to make sure it was easy to cancel), my iTunes account has been very problematic for years. Took me 3 hours to resolve the situation and customer support at Magisto had zero ability to fix it on their end and didn’t apologize for the misleading copy. Wish I had an option for zero stars. The customer support team is fairly quick to answer your emails, to tell you that they can not and will not do anything to help.
Best App to Auto Generate movies
by Phil222 on 2019/05/12 04:27
I have use this app for the last three years and I’ve tried dozens of different video editing apps and I also use more complex ones like Adobe Premier and this one has always been the one that I go back to because of how well it is able to intelligently choose parts of clips the best fit the movie altogether and the template style options and music options are far better than other apps so your movies are more likely to be unique. It also handles the large amount of data without bugs and renders video quickly. Great app And I look forward to seeing what’s to come.
BE WARNED - 1 trial even if it’s been 5 years
by Mollewog on 2018/06/27 13:07
I recently trialed, or so I thought, this app. After searching through multiple video editing apps, I came across this one and “trialed” it. I didn’t realize I had purchased it until my bank statement showed it. I had no response from this company, nor Apple, to me signing for a free trial letting me know I had actually purchased the app. According to Magisto, it’s Apple’s policy for a one time free trial. Ok. I understand. Perhaps it was in the fine print... but I believe that Magisto should care for their potential customers and reiterate that... or at the very least give a warning when signing for the free trial that it is not actually a free trial. Sidenote - I apparently signed up 5 years ago when my baby was a few weeks old. I had completely forgotten about it. So, my fault..for not reading the fine print somewhere, wherever it is. And for forgetting I had tried a free trial. I get it and I paid the 32 dollars for this app. Lesson learned... but felt I should let others know so they don’t make the same mistake I did. Bottom line - good app but not for the price. You can find better for less $$. I don’t trust this company so I don’t plan to use it nor will I recommend it.
Magisto App will make your family and friends cry tears of joy
by Jumpinjackfire on 2017/12/20 15:46
I don't generally write reviews. However this Magisto app is special. It syncs together videos and pictures making you the photographer look like you are as good of a movie director as Ron Howard. My pictures and videos of vacations, friends weddings, holidays spent with family, Eagle Scout ceremony, etc are priceless. I like to take several pictures and short video clips of 10 to 30 seconds. Then just pick the pic and videos you want. Select a music theme from Magisto along with a title to your movie and Magesto's magic does the rest. Get This App. Enough Said!
I would probably not recommend it.
by The Nightmare Hour on 2019/05/27 23:14
Despite its ability to arrange your content into quality videos with minimal effort, there are a few things that stand in the way of me giving Magisto five stars. The app is unreasonably limited for those who cannot afford the premium addition. However, buying the premium addition leads to renewal the app doesn’t warn you about. Magisto actually makes it quite difficult to access the controls through which one might be able to cancel subscription. That is not the last of the problems, though. For those working on tablets rather than phones, there is no version that allows users to enable a landscape setting, contrary to many apps on the store. It’s these minor inconveniences that restricts me from being compelled to use the app.
it's ok.
by Reviewgirl432 on 2018/04/05 16:00
I was looking for a video making app, and after i watched the video, i was pleased. But when i used the app it said $30 a month, personally, i think this is way too much. Some people wouldn't mind paying that, but others like me don't. I think you should add the price in the video for this app so people know how much they need to pay. Next, I'm glad there is a 7 day trial, so i tried it out, but you have to have atleast 15 seconds of a video. When i make videos, i prefer to put together what i have so far, to see how it looks, and then add on. but mine was only about 6 seconds so far, so it wouldn't let me look at the progress. Other than that, it's a good app. If you are willing to pay, then i suggest it.
Great app
by jmb12031101 on 2018/07/29 06:19
First review I’ve ever done no lie but this is a dope app for makin ur own short videos I jus used it for my first time but I can see things i would like to be better about it but overall it’s a great app just needs a little bit of refinements in all aspects more powerful more user friendly help with things the common person wouldn’t understand make it more bold in the appeal or naming perhaps. Just hoping it turns into an app I’ll love n maybe possibly be able to make money from because there is a business section I haven’t tried it yet
Dropped my rating to 2 star because..
by Maliceon on 2019/03/05 13:31
It used to be intuitive and now it's so random it's just clips and crap music. The #1 reason for using this app for getting to checkout all the new indy artists on the rise. Now it's just a lot of public domain stuff. Also I have a pro subscription and it still won't let me make a long video. Just a short or medium. After more than 5-6 years at the rate of $9.99 a month totaling around $600 one would think I could make a full 3min video by now. 😟 but no. I'm not going to renew my subscription this next billing cycle. It's not worth it. I will be back later in the year to check and see if any updates have improved the experience because I really did love this app for many years. I hope it gets back to good.
Don’t subscribe to Premium
by 123vj on 2019/02/11 15:41
Premium subscribers have no option to edit their videos or rearrange the images, slides or information flow. They have to choose a few of the resources and let some AI or program decide what to do with them. If you are lucky, they come in the intended order. Otherwise, you will see a highly jumbled video which serves no purpose. It’s a purely deceptive technique on their part to force users to subscribe to more expensive professional or business subscription to edit their creations. They should let the premium subscribers at least to rearrange the images in a proper order before its is stylized by their program. Disappointed that I have to pray each time to make a video that things will fall in place. A very dicey situation.
Subscription scam
by The Real Deli on 2018/12/05 18:10
I had cancelled this months ago and realized in an accounting audit that it was still connected to my iTunes Store account. Just went through the cancellation process again and the way that it is designed as a trap to make you think you’ve canceled when in fact it takes two tries and some back stepping to get a message that tells you to go to the iTunes account to cancel, which in and of itself is a convoluted process. Your cancellation process is clearly a trap, and I wish iTunes would regulate people like you from using their payment platform. You may have a good rating for people who want to use your app, you get a one star from me for your support telling me there was nothing they could do to help that I should contact the iTunes Store. Standby your rip off program.
READ FOR INFO ON HOW TO CANCEL
by Maimoon416@ on 2019/04/15 07:42
Their free trial was helpful but it was a pain to cancel everything. ***READ FOR INFO ON HOW TO CANCEL -go to the Settings app -then go to iTunes & App Stores -tap on Apple ID at the top -select view Apple ID -go down to Subscriptions -click on the app you want to cancel and cancel it Hope this helped some of you since it took me forever sitting in frustration and anxiety to cancel the app on time before it charged me. Instead of just saying we should cancel in iTunes they should explain how to do it. SMH. I loved the app honestly. I didn’t need anything too professional since I was just using it for family and friends but it was really too expensive for what it was. I can’t be paying $20-$30 a month for this when I only used it for one project in the last month. I have other more important priorities, bills to pay for. If it were $10-$20 for the whole app, not just monthly then I feel like more people would buy it. This monthly thing is really not helping you guys. Feels more like a swindlers scam than a professional app.
Stopping Payments is a nightmare!!!
by Stormyrose on 2018/06/21 12:33
I was going to cancel my subscription for a month or two but to do so is seemingly impossible. I cancelled from the app, or so thought. When I got charged again I though, “well, I must have done it incorrectly”. This time, I get a pop up that says I have to unsubscribe through my iTunes id. I follow the steps to unsubscribe from there-it’s listed but there is no unsubscribe option. I email support and am refunded $7.57. Upon closer look at my account I find that when I “ugraded” from a $6.99 plan to a $15 plan it wasn’t actually an upgrade. I was still being charged both. Upgrade apparently means something very different to Magisto. I file a dispute with PayPal. They are still looking into it. Today My BANK account-not PayPal is charged another $15 from Magisto!!! I go to look at my iTubes Subscription and it is listed as cancelled. Magisto is still telling me I have to unsubscribe through iTunes and not them. This is a mess! What am i supposed to do to stop the payments-close my bank account and PayPal???? These people cannot be trusted. Not only have I lost money, but the amount of time I’ve wasted on just unsubscribing from this ridiculous app is absolutely absurd!!
Disappointing
by @janicejuvices_ on 2018/12/30 16:36
The process of getting the final result was a little confusing and time wasting but it wasn’t horrible. The BAD part was the video quality :/ I looked through the reviews and saw that other people had the same problem and the response that some people got was that I had to use the same device that I recorded with... which I did and still got horrible quality. Another problem that some people had was cancelling their subscription. At first I was panicking because their cancellation process was confusing and the price was quite up there, but all I had to do was go on their help services and they lead me through the proper steps. Overall, the app isn’t that great and it’s confusing to manage at first.
Not what it used to be.
by TheEgo on 2018/11/03 21:47
I was a fan of Magistro for the simplicity of making a good short video in HD in their early days, it was an App way ahead of Apple an Google In terms of making automated videos from pictures and anything you have in your photo album. It was perhaps the first AI video making App. Recently downloaded the App and was totally disappointed. The interface was changed in many ways, trying to blend the App more into a social media platform, which is not what you are looking in the first place. The billing is horrible! You can’t even make a video without committing to a subscription and despite the “free to cancel” option I won’t expend time on any app that if is not what I need will have to devote time on canceling subscriptions. It was a great App, so sorry for what they made out of it.
This trash app cant do anything it says it can
by PixL_Acsam on 2018/11/15 20:30
This app says that it can edit and make videos and movies professionally, but I tried it and it doesnt even let you set a specific order for the clips you use, it just randomly plays them out of order. All I want is to cut portions of a video but this piece of trash expects me to pay $25 a month for a version that adds even more useless crap. If I am expected to pay for trash editing then I might as well throw all my life savings into a fire, there really is no difference in this case. Take away the subscription crap, then I will consider using this cheap, good for nothing app. Hope the Magisto CEO are having fun writing fake reviews about how fun this app is, because I can clearly see that this cant do anything more than just screw up your videos.
Subscribe and they'll show you all the templates you CAN'T use.
by ptezco on 2019/04/12 19:27
I’m also sick and tired about not being able to filter outer the filters I am not subscribed to. I am ALREADY PAYING MONEY for this thing. It is frustrating the sensation of paying and not having access to a bunch of stuff. I know that’s the way things are but that doesn't have to be rubbing it in on my face EVERY TIME I try to make a video. Just put a filter: I pay for the so-called PREMIUM. IT's $5 a month. Not nothing. A great deal of money if you ask me. I deserve to have clean access to the stuff I have access to. The product itself is worth paying for it. What is annoying and frustrating is the aggressive marketing tactics they use to entice you to upgrade.
Needs a music upgrade
by very, very useful on 2017/12/28 12:46
I use this app for a lot of things. I have the full professional upgrade. For the most part, this app does everything I need. The only downside, for me, seeing how much I use the app, is that more editing styles are needed. I would also strongly encourage the creators of this app to allow music from the users personal iTunes account. A lot of the music available works great with the videos. Again, for how frequently it’s used, Videos start to get repetitive without more editing and music selections.
Okay...
by Drewawesome on 2018/05/28 22:18
Overall I like the concept of it and I do enjoy it, have some issues. First, it doesn’t put the pictures where you would expect them to be. Also if you have more than one clip it’s not always in the order you’d think it was in. If people are actually making your videos they should make your videos make since, and putting clips in weird orders, putting pictures in wrong spots, is not the way to do it. Also I wish you didn’t have to pay to make your minutes longer than a minute and a half, and the only way you can make them longer is by going premium! I wish this app was just a little thought out better, and it would be nice if it where updated
Family Memories
by Patsylee321 on 2017/09/21 17:46
This app is an easy, quick way to share special family moments! I love that I can add music from my own playlist! The app provides a great selection of themes and allows me to choose a length that is easy to share on Facebook to share with friends. I have used it with my preschool class to share with parents, adding just the right song that demonstrates the new concept we are learning and the students actively involved in learning activities! The students love seeing their movie as well.
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.
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.
Scam Don’t Do It!
by The GTR Guy on 2019/02/24 04:08
I barely tried the app itself because I noticed the negative reviews right after I did the free subscription. Of course, I was then stuck like the many others in the reviews. It took me forever to get around the scam of unsubscribing. Real slick scam to have an unsubscribe button in the app that doesn’t truly unsubscribe you. Had to go into itunes account and kill it there under the subscriptions section. Don’t know why Apple allows this garbage but I’ll have to watch my account for the next few months to make sure they don’t hit me like they did others. I’m never loading a new app again before reading the reviews! You have been warned! Seems like they found a way to give themselves a nice star rating to fool you too. These guys are good.
Not a video editing app! Beware
by Real Thinkscape on 2018/10/04 22:46
You upload all your private videos/photos to some company's servers. This is a front for a website that generates montages from your clips with some effects added. When you upload, you have to accept a long terms of service agreement document, written by lawyers, in a language that will make you cringe. Basically you give away your videos and hope for the best... If you're fine with that, expect to wait for hours for your HD and 4k videos to finish uploading... Oh and also don't expect any decent resolution results - they limit the output resolution to laughable SD, or if you pay heaps you get 720p (like it's 2010 again)... Or you can pay even more for "business" (!?) to get the privilege to download a last-gen 1080p version.
An amazing app
by 2C3p2S4 on 2018/11/27 20:14
It is an amazing app and I love it, it has everything that I need to make top notch looking edited videos that have gotten praise great praise. The only thing that I don’t like is the music choices that they offer, they are not the best but when you look you could find one you could work with. I just wish that there were more options where you could search and choose the exact song that you want. Otherwise it is a grade A+ app in my book and I would recommend it to anyone.
Not easy to operate and difficult to cancel
by no way 22 on 2018/10/16 15:23
I uploaded 72 photos. It did not tell me that it was too many. It automatically condensed my photos and did not include all of my photos. The editing options are very difficult and not easy to operate. So I never managed to make the video the way I wanted with all photos. Then I tried to cancel. Which there are multiple steps in order to cancel. You have to cancel it in the app. Then go to your Apple ID settings and unsubscribe to which I’m still unsure if I’m successfully cancelled. They get you to sign up for a free trial then will automatically charge you if you don’t unsubscribe but I can’t unsubscribe successfully. VERY CROOKED way of doing things especially when I’m not even satisfied with the apps function.
meh..
by mrsvle on 2018/03/14 08:31
Not sure you can really purchase creativity. Effects are canned and cliche, music is bland and innocuous. And the constant pressure to upgrade is obscene. Also the free tryout version is so limited you’re not inspired to upgrade to the “Professional” version which lets you do incredibly amazing things like change the order of your pictures and add a logo. You won’t be able to download your video unless you upgrade, and sharing your video is essentially advertising for Magisto since their logo will be all over it. In the long run you’ll be much better off getting a real video editing program and learning how to use it. ps. pretty sure most of these review ratings have been jacked
Do not get the paid version
by cat.universe on 2018/02/07 18:53
Too bad that this company has such a poor idea of customer service and is only concerned with the bottom line. When they auto-renewed my yearly subscription they never sent a reminder OR even a receipt for the charge. I only knew they charged me for another year of service because I saw the charge on my credit card. When I asked for a refund with the understanding that I’d circle back in a couple of months for another year of service at that time. they couldn’t be flexible or refund me even though I’ve been a paying customer and fan of the app. Even a great paid service isn’t worth it when the company doesn’t demonstrate willingness to work with loyal customers. Alas, a short sighted decision on their part.
Wont save and play the photos i want
by thewitchhazel on 2018/11/06 13:56
So, since downloading this app lastweek. I feel like a pro in using this app. Its a lot of work but this app has a great future in photo/video slideshow making. 1 thing that really really bothers me is when i edit the movie i made, it wont show the photos i added. For the nth time it shows the photos i dont want instead of the new ones i added. I keep on editing the movie but it seems it has its own stubborn mind on what my movie should look like. It’s annoying. Please fix. Oh and please add a delete button for when you edit the movie.
NOT WHAT IT USED TO BE
by zoe b12 on 2019/09/02 18:46
I downloaded this app about three or two years ago when I first found it and it was PERFECT, I could upload my own music without a problem and cut my clips into the clips I wanted for the video. Here it is 2019 and now the app is wanting me to pay to add more than a certain amount of time the pictures and videos will take up on my video & wont let me upload my own music. First the app tells me to download the song to my phone instead of just iCloud, so I do & then it tells me it can’t be used for some reason, yet I pay for iMusic so I don’t know why it won’t work.. honestly just going to undownload the app and on the look out for something better 👀
What is going on?!
by Benopben on 2018/11/22 05:17
I used to love this app, but had no need to use for the las year or so. This week I decided to make a video with pix and vids from a recent trip and OMG how frustrating this app has become. I add certain pix and the end result is never correct. They keep repeating some images and completely not showing others. I have to keep editing the video and it’s never what I ask for. After about 30 tries (no exaggeration) it’s still not making the video collage needed. It seems like the app completely isn’t capable of “memorizing” the pix I add and it’s just doing its own thing. Definitely not worth 30$/month... wouldn’t even pay 30$/year. Unsubscribed 👎👎👎

Thieves
by Jh duh on 2019/09/20 16:12
I downloaded this app and created a profile account , I thought it was a free subscription based on the info that was advertised and after a month you would be billed. I used the app one time made a video to test it out and then cancelled the subscription a few days later and was charged $29.99. Why am I being charged after the subscription was cancelled? Not cool. Do not down load app!!
I am completely angry.
by ItsKyoshi on 2019/09/20 06:23
I clicked on this app not knowing that somehow after clicking a add it would bill me and make an automatic subscription! I should have read more carefully this is completely upsetting since I I deleted the app and unknowingly was charged. $30 is the amount that I’ve paid that is a huge amount of money for not using it. I think you guys could do better then really just plainly tricking potential customers. Would’ve rate higher if this didn’t happen.
It doesn’t get your full video. It cuts out the entire half

Terrible warning WILL CHARGE YOU FOR FREE TRAIL!!
It was great! Until the purchases...
by K🍪🍩🍩🍦 on 2019/09/16 13:29
I used this app for a good 3 years and absolutely loved it! It was an amazing way to make movie trailers, mini movies, and a way to take all my vacation pictures/videos and keep them forever without deleting them eventually. But that can’t happen now because you have to PURCHASE something to save your photos to camera roll. For certain templates, I get it. But this is ridiculous. At LEAST let me save my movie! I already can’t choose whatever template I want, the least you can do it let me save it.
It distorts the clips 👎🏻

It’s A Trap!! Auto-Subscription; NOT FREE
by Mr.Ripoffwatcher on 2019/09/16 01:09
Another review has it spot on. This app advertises as Free but, suckers you into subscription which you need to cancel to get out. This is entrapment. And it’s a despicable behavior by this developer. And, even it were great (which it’s not) it is EXPENSIVE. Buyer Beware. Watch what you click on!
30$ A Month? You're Kidding.
by VinceWylde on 2019/09/15 15:53
I have professional editing software on my home PC that was purchased in full with what is a two month subscription on here. That's insane and horrifically over priced. 10 bucks you could justify. But 30$ is just greed. The software itself seems solid for being a mobile app. But the price needs to come out of the rafters. Just laughable.
Not satisfied at all !!
by L.a.r.a.h on 2019/09/15 15:25
You guys won’t let me cancel my account. I just downloaded it today and I don’t like it so I was trying to cancel my subscription but from the looks of it you guys and hustling me and didn’t give me a realistic option to cancel. Remind you I just downloaded this app today so I have before 7 days to cancel ! Plz cancel my subscription or I will sue !
Scam
by DrOrange27 on 2019/09/15 00:42
Okay so i think paying for app is okay and developers should charge to use their app since a lot of work and money goes into making it. However charging by the month is annoying because I probably wont use it every month. But the biggest problem is once you pay for the $30 a month you cant even use the full app?! You’re basically is the free version of an app yet you’re paying $30 a month for it. So you have to upgrade to 40 or 50 dollars a month. Thats insane. Be upfront with how much it costs and if someone pays for it you should give them full access.
Card charged INSTANTLY
by there is no trial. they charge on 2019/09/14 02:52
I opted for the 7 day trial but my card was charged immediately 😒 . I cannot contact anyone to get a refund . And the worst part is , the music they have is crap and you cannot add music from your phone.
Awful
by Hard_Xc_KTTN on 2019/09/13 05:15
Just filters. No editing. Almost impossible to get rid of. They bully you to keep it.

Annoyed
by MisT96 on 2019/09/11 23:05
It appeared free, so I went through the process of downloading it, etc.... after all of that and them getting my email, it said I had to pay to do it or do a 7 day free trial where they bill (a lot) after 7 days. No thanks and annoyed you wasted my time.
0 Stars.

It’s not free
by AAA209 on 2019/09/10 22:54
Do not download unless you’re gonna pay.
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.
4 Stars
by simplyred55 on 2019/09/10 14:04
I wish I could load more photos than 10 w/o having to go pro and pay for it. I may use this app a lot so thinking of upgrading
Horrible
by Mattyboy Padezan on 2019/09/09 19:48
You can’t even save it to your camera roll😂. This app is worthless. Took literally 20 minutes of my time for nothing. I’m being considerate and giving one star😂. People who are installing and wasting your money on this app. I feel bad for you.

Disappointed
by BEAR3586 on 2019/09/08 15:51
You’re only allowed 7 photos before they want you to buy premium which is 30$ for an APP!
Glad I read the reviews
by MoLoJo on 2019/09/07 23:27
$30 a month for an app that basically does the same thing at iMovie? I think I’d rather keep my Netflix subscription and my license for Photoshop and Lightroom, since all of that is the same price...
Unauthorized Charges from app. BEWARE
by Bugger14 on 2019/09/07 19:16
Even the fine print is unclear. It mentions nothing about a “trial period” but it does say you have to PHYSICALLY SELECT a package either business access or professional access. Neither of these access features were selected; yet they charged my account for 3 months before my bank caught the odd reoccurring fees of $32.46. I promptly cancelled the subscription. I never authorized either of these charges and asked for a refund. Even the fine print suggest that you get “free access” and there is no mention of a time frame for a “trial period”. It’s very misleading and a bit confusing. Apple claimed they carefully review my request for the refund. This request lasted all of 1 min to decline a refund- as I was still chatting with the agent online when my refund request was denied! Not too happy with this either. The app is certainly not worth $32.47. Why is it so difficult just to lay down clearly what the terms are for the app before a download? I know; no one would be sucked into the devious plan to be charged monthly subscription rates unbeknownst to them. It’s sad really. Are there not any honest people left in the world. I am very disappointed and I am not through fighting to get a refund! Do not purchase or download this app. Beware!

I wanted to try the 7 day trial. Before becoming a subscriber. But I was immediately charged the $30 monthly fee because my iTunes had previously been linked to the account about a year ago. That’s pretty stupid. Don’t do it. I even contacted their support team and they couldn’t help me.
🤬🙄

Charged me 33.50 for a app I never ever use and ughh it makes me so pi**ed like I didn’t even give the app permission either!
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.
Useless $30/month app
by concentriq on 2019/09/04 14:43
The sole purpose of this app seems to be collecting $30/month from people who forget to cancel their subscription after 7 day trial. I found no other useful features in it: at least nothing that would cost $30/month.

Great app.. if it wasn’t Thirty Dollars

NOT WHAT IT USED TO BE
by zoe b12 on 2019/09/02 18:46
I downloaded this app about three or two years ago when I first found it and it was PERFECT, I could upload my own music without a problem and cut my clips into the clips I wanted for the video. Here it is 2019 and now the app is wanting me to pay to add more than a certain amount of time the pictures and videos will take up on my video & wont let me upload my own music. First the app tells me to download the song to my phone instead of just iCloud, so I do & then it tells me it can’t be used for some reason, yet I pay for iMusic so I don’t know why it won’t work.. honestly just going to undownload the app and on the look out for something better 👀
Doesn’t work
by EzE2019 on 2019/09/02 16:44
I tried to make a couple of videos it says it takes a few minutes but an hour later no video. Also it’s $29.95 a month kind of steep. Also once you register there is no way to make it a personal account or business account. I assume the personal account is cheaper. In my experience companies usually charge 3 times as much for business accounts. Kind of a bummer it seamed like a good app in the preview.
Free trial
by Nick11222 on 2019/09/02 12:04
It said that I was able to get a free trial and it still charged me? I’ve had it for less than 24 hours is there anyway I can get my money back?
Please Help

Does everything I want it to do, but I’m not paying $360 a year to be able to rearrange components of my video or cue the part I intended to see and download the HD video I provided. I’ll do it the hard way.
This is not a free app
by K8tidyd on 2019/09/02 01:14
Everyone knows that not all apps are free. We expect to pay for a good one. This app opens with you can use it for a minute free and then you have to pay for it. I deleted it. I did not use it. If I can’t experience creating with this app before I give up my financial information I don’t need it.

I would not have given such a harsh review(sorry) if you would have made ability to cancel Easy. Ahem. And now I waste 15 minutes trying to cancel trial so u don’t charge me in 5 days.

Wish I could edit the actual placement
by Moxy momma on 2019/08/28 13:21
I am in love with this app but I hate how a lot of the zoom ins and the video segments can’t be tweaked. Instead of zooming in on my son’s face, it zooms in to his stomach. The video portions are cute but I wish I could choose which part they’d use the sound for. It’s so close to being the perfect app for me but not yet there.

Video Photos
by Ftyugff on 2019/08/27 19:17
This app says you can select up to 60 pictures. When I selected them it did not show all of the pics that I had selected in the video l. When I went to the help section to find out what the problem was it said that all of the photos may not be included in the video. If that’s the case then don’t give deceiving information. My reason for purchasing the app was the number of photos that I could place in the video. I’m canceling the app. I was very disappointed.

Not Worth the Download
by Lola2137 on 2019/08/26 07:21
I downloaded the app purely for leisure because I wanted to add some music to some of the videos I’ve taken but I’m guessing without paying the ridiculous monthly fee some people are mentioning, you literary get almost no options. No modern music options at all, very limited editing and for someone who isn’t going to be uploading as a professional, I’m very disappointed in this app. The scariest part though, is that I see A LOT of 1 & 2 star reviews and somehow the overall score is still 5 stars... Is that how it’s supposed to work? Lol Anyway, save yourself the trouble (and the money) and find another app that will do what you need it to do.
Love this app but...
by @7HisAddictioN7 on 2019/08/26 01:09
I love this app and use it a lot! I even recommend it to my friends👍 however, I really don’t like the restrictions that can only be lifted by paying for “in-app-purchases” I truly feel like this is a tricky & misleading move by the developers of the app 😒

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.

It tells you that your video has to be so freaking short and you have to pay 50 dollars a month to have it longer and a bunch of other stuff which is way to over priced and you can’t even get that creative with it

I tried to use a 21 minute video I had, in hopes that the AI could process it and pull out all the appropriate parts for a trailer, but I can’t even use the clip without upgrading to premium or professional and I don’t want to upgrade to those because too many people said they weren’t good and they had to upgrade AGAIN to business just to properly edit. Please remove the max time on the videos I use in my camera roll. I spent a lot of time making that video and I was really hoping Magisto could make a trailer for it.

Magisto makes it hard to unsubscribe
by Dr. O'Death on 2019/08/10 23:28
If you subscribe to any Magisto plan, you better want it for life. I subscribed (by mistake) as I was checking out video editors. So, I tried to cancel the subscription, which is pricy, by the way, on my iPhone. However, on their subscription page with Apple, unlike all other apps I’ve subscribed to, there’s no option for cancelling the subscription. So, I went online to their site and tried to unsubscribe, only to be told I have to cancel through Apple! Then I went to simply cancel the whole account, but a warning comes up that if you don’t cancel the subscription first, you still may be charged the monthly subscription! It’s a no win situation. I have a feeling they know exactly how hard it is to cancel subscriptions. It’s shady. I’ve messaged them about this. Got my fingers crossed that they’ll cancel my subscription and account.

Not worth the money
by Jake__46 on 2019/08/07 14:38
Magisto is far too expensive for what it can do, and tricks you into paying the full amount if you forget to cancel the trial. $30 for a full service may be worth it, but $30 a month is unacceptable. Would not recommend unless you have a wedding or event coming up and a real professional is not available.

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.
Not as many options as it seems
by itssydneycnt on 2019/01/26 22:03
I started the free trial to see what the $30 a month entails, must be good right? Considering the amount of video editing apps available at no cost you’d think one that’s $360 a year would have TONS of options, not the case. The second star is because this app MIGHT be useful for people who have no clue what they are doing or are super duper lazy. You can’t edit which animations are used, or what order all the special effects and what not are. You basically put in your videos and hope that it does an okay job. VERY basic, this would be very useful for someone who is 80 years old and has no idea how to do any editing and isn’t willing to learn. If you want to edit that font it’s gonna cost you $80 a month, which is $960 a year. I don’t mind paying for something that would be worth it, but this app clearly thinks they are sitting on a gold mine with offering nothing extra that similar apps also have. Finagle with a couple free apps, and figure out how to use their animations and music, it will be the same if not better than this app. I am canceling immediately and using inshot, you can speed up videos, slow them down, put them upside down, add animations, music, text, and you can control it all, for free. I believe I purchased a package of animations for like $1.99, which is way more reasonable and realistic for what the app does.
Filthy tactics
by habarsamian on 2018/07/04 12:28
Do not download this app. They make it extremely difficult to cancel your “subscription”. Here’s my story: Looking to get into video editing so I go look for some apps on the App Store and see magisto. I read the description of their app and see that the download is just a free trial and I would need a subscription. I think to myself ok too easy I will just get in the app and cancel the auto renew as soon as I download. I don’t like paying subscriptions and I wasnt too devoted to editing anything yet for a price ( and if I was i definitely would not use this app , the video it produced was horrible). anyway I get into the app and immediately go to “cancel subscription”. I hit the cancel button and go through the process several times and I never seem to get a solid confirmation. So I decide to close the app and reopen it. When I returned to the settings screen I see the option to “return to subscription “ so i think ok it must have been cancelled. Apparently not the case because I had a$30 charge on my card today. And apparently the developer support is telling people on here that if they set up a subscription through their Apple ID they need to cancel the subscription through their Apple ID. However seems a bit misleading to have a “cancel subscription” button that doesn’t actually work. I will get my money refunded.
Want to cancel the subscription? Mwa-ha-ha
by Big Giant Octopus on 2018/07/26 12:51
I faced the same issue as some reviewers below: signed for a trial to check the full functionality of the app for the further occasional use when I need it with no intention to pay for Professional version (as I don’t need it). Before signing for the trial I checked the Terms to make sure on the way to unsubscribe, and it was stated to be done over My Account right in the app. So in a few days I cancelled the subscription the way it was requested in their Terms, however have been billed anyway, when the trial expired! After some emails back and forth with Magisto support I’ve been told that the process of cancellation is different from what they requested in their Terms and refund is also the authority of Apple. I don’t get it, why to have this misleading “Cancel your subscription” button in My Account, if it does nothing?? And why have describe the procedure of cancellation differently in the Terms visible upon signing up? All together it looks very filthy to me. Kudos for the support team replying and doing it fast. Nice and fun app in general, even the outcome quality of the video is horrible. But this billing filthy thing - baaaad, too bad, guys.
Super expensive not worth it.
by A honest usert on 2019/07/21 18:24
Today i just browsed around this app for a couple minutes, when it first gave me the option to join the 7 day trial i hit back because i do not like subscriptions, apparently it still let me use the app still and my sole purpose was to edit a small quick slideshow with my pictures that i could download. After like a 5 minute wait i tried downloading it and it says it wants a whole dollar for just a download?? It’s like you can’t really use the app for free except upload pictures or videos for other people on the app. When i tried to confirm that my account was not being charged i went to the settings in the app and tried to see if i was in the subscription.. i hit it serveral times and it did not load in. This was sketchy at first but i just thought it’s because i don’t have a subscription in this app maybe so i went to my apple id subscriptions and it said i had none.. i better not get charged 20$ for this app because it is not worth it at all.. you have amateur editing and features, most edits in this app you can do in a free one. I do not like this app it was a waste of time. In the description you guys should add all the fees included in the app.
I hate auto subscriptions. Why are these still a thing?
by cdbennett1231 on 2019/03/24 14:06
Don’t be like me, read the fine print. An add for this app appeared on my feed and I just wanted to play around and check it out, so I opted in on the free trial. Since my phone already saves my payment info and such, I did not realize my account would automatically be charged after the trial. I spent over $60 (2 months) before realizing it was charging me (I had deleted the app from my phone not knowing I was subscribed). I didn’t even end up using the app! So, be careful and take your time. If this is the app for you, great, if you’re just bored and decide to click on the advertisement and check it out, be wary of the auto charges since they will not refund you. Personally, I believe automatically enrolling people with a subscription without making it 100% transparent should be illegal, and doesn’t make me believe you have a great product. Great product sells itself, and doesn’t need to rely on people’s lack of awareness. This is just my opinion.
Got very greedy
by BigT54 on 2018/05/20 02:35
I use to love this app but they slowly became so greedy. Charging you for so many ridiculous things that people do for free. You can’t even save your own videos unless you subscribe to their monthly fee, A total rip off I’m done with this app. The blocking you from doing so many things unless you pay. Don’t waste your time or your money, they became very greedy and there’s many other app developers the do just as good a job if not better for a lot less. The latest update put the nail in the coffin for me and I would like to encourage you all to not purchase this app unless you’re willing to spend money every single month just to use it.
Not worth the money and VERY poor customer support
by artc1688 on 2019/05/21 19:50
Heard from a friend about this SW and it’s ability to automate the creation process. Decided to give it a try. The very short version (15sec?) was cute and decided to try the 7 days “professional “ version. When I realized Tencent, Google and other apps offer similar feature and convenient for free, I decided it it not worth the money. However, the cancellation process for the trial version was not simple at all!!!!! I looked all over and unable to find ANYWHERE within he app on how to cancel the subscription! I wrote to customer support looking for help and the response from customer response was not helpful and kept asking me why I didn’t like the SW! After mutual attempts they sent me the link and told me I have to go into the iTunes account and cancel it!!! Also, by this time they have already charged me and now I have to beg ITunes to return my money because the customer support was poor and the cancellation process was unclear and difficult. Try Tencent SW or Google, it’s free and you don’t have to deal with magisto customer support!!!!
Little to no editing freedom.
by Nim Num on 2018/06/06 19:33
I mean, for free, fine, whatever, but there is so little you can do! You have to have music, and you have to have a title appear on the video. I just needed to make a video that was “made together” to post on social media, not anything fancy (well, it isn’t FANCY, definitely not.) I gave it two stars instead of one because it would work for like a five year old (at least on the free one, no way was I going to be spending money on an editing APP when I have things like WeVideo.) I only got this app to be quick, and while it was quick, the video looked like crap, and you couldn’t even edit the video yourself! No creative freedom, and worst of all, it looks awful, let’s be clear. There is huge white letters that must play on the screen, and then you have awful music (which I wish they had a choice for NO MUSIC) in the background. I wouldn’t even recommend this for a home movie sort of thing. Don’t know what you would even do with it. Little editing freedom, and makes your simple videos stick into a box that they want your videos to fit in. Overall, this app wasn’t even comparable to iMovie! At least iMovie let’s you make your own video, which I was looking for an improvement from to edit videos together (not looking to make a horrible home movie, just edit videos together into one price, which one would think would be pretty basic for an video app.
Please change quality of final video cut
by ShennenEilleen on 2017/11/07 14:19
Ur videos look like total dogdoo no matter what you do - Magisto final edit destroys them - even when shot in 1080 for ig or on a dslr hd cam this app degrades the quality so bad.. so sad because I paid for a few months of this but a business account is wayyyy too much money.. I really would need to try it for a month before paying for an entire year - It actually destroyed two videos I made but I had to use them because my time is money - Tried filming different ways in higher quality and it just makes the films so low quality - I'm willing to pay for the business acct if there's some sort of guarantee that I can actually get my videos in the hd quality it shows me playing the video WITHIN the app before I download it to my phone or ig.. I actually was about to jump on paying for a year right before creating the first movie glad I didn’t - I've also written your customer service and no one ever got back to me about questions I’ve asked on both ig dm and emails
Want to love it
by Dustysage on 2018/12/29 22:34
There is so much to move about this App. It DOES make BEAUTIFUL videos. Unfortunately, the lack of controls means that most videos are unuasable in the end. Too often, the software selects clips which are unimportant or draw attention to the wrong things. And almost always, the clips are shown in such an out of order fashion that the video makes no sense. Two quick enhancements would fix that problem for me. 1) allow me to set the order the clips are shown. And 2) allow me to select a hot spot on video clips that I want to make sure are featured. For example, if I’m making a video of my day at Disneyland, I don’t want the fireworks to show up first, I want them to be the grand finale. I don’t want the people in the crowd to be the focus, but rather my own friends or the attractions themselves. I think this is an easy fix with just a few additions to the edit tools.
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.
Misleading
by Rkjest on 2018/09/21 14:27
Terribly misleading in the descriptions and functions of this app. First of all, note that it comes up first in the App Store with an “Ad” listed next to it- which means they pay for sponsorship and push faulty reviews!! I doubt that all of these five stars are legitimate, as there are so many problems throughout. From there, they push multi-tiered subscriptions on you with any attempt to explore the app. The user interface doesn’t make any sense. There aren’t tools for you to use on your own- you have no option but to choose a pre-designed template. It hardly makes any sense! I’m appalled that the App Store allows a company to push this obvious scam. And obviously the devs are “listening:” it’s more like defending themselves and trying to rake in the cash in any way possible. If they are a legitimate company that actually cares, focus on creating a good product that works instead of pawning this off to us like Snake Oil salesmen.
Magisto is Amazing
by JonD2019 on 2019/04/19 23:52
I make a movie every month and for every holiday and occasion! People always marvel at how amazing they are. But I feel guilty taking the credit since the Magisto app does all the work. I just select photos, vids, theme, music, title and time and in just a few minutes, Magisto creates a professional looking video! I can’t believe how the app is able to zoom, splice and transition so perfectly every time. It’s really astonishing. If I was to use a traditional photo editing app to accomplish the same result, it would take me 10 times as long! Magisto has been a part of our family memory making life since 2015 and it’s now indispensable! Try it, you’ll love it!
Amazing Video Processing Software!!!!
by Seasidesell on 2019/01/27 14:05
What this program does is nothing short of amazing. The amount of work and image processing and video processing it takes to combine and automatically make a video that looks incredibly manually made is amazing. Yes it’s not 100% perfect. There may be some scenes that need to be tweaked. But when I think of the amount of time I would have to spent doing this manually through Photoshop or Adobe After Effects I am totally blown away. Since I don’t use it for business the cost is a little bit high. I used it for my own personal videos. I wish they had an option where I could just pay one fee to purchase it.
Better and Better
by Sirhc401 on 2018/04/11 21:49
I have used Magisto for a few years now. They have come a long way from the few cool clips you could make. Video collages could not be made simpler and edits allow you to make tweaks until you love it. They make great 1:30 to 2:30 min videos to capture our trips and vacations to share with family and friend, plus go back and live in the land of nostalgia. If I could critique one thing, it’s that as they have grown it has been more focused on business subscriptions and they don’t keep/update styles like they used to. However, they have expanded music selection. Looking forward to more content in the future!
Misrepresented
by L💚CA on 2018/08/06 13:52
I tried the free business trial, because it said I could easily cancel within a week in “settings”. I tried it, the video quality was awful and there weren’t anymore options for creating a pro level video/slide show than my free apps. For $30 I expected way more than my free apps. Then, When I went to cancel, it turns out you have to cancel in ITUNES SETTINGS, not the app settings. Had I known this I wouldn’t have done the trial (I rarely do trials and checked to make sure it was easy to cancel), my iTunes account has been very problematic for years. Took me 3 hours to resolve the situation and customer support at Magisto had zero ability to fix it on their end and didn’t apologize for the misleading copy. Wish I had an option for zero stars. The customer support team is fairly quick to answer your emails, to tell you that they can not and will not do anything to help.
Best App to Auto Generate movies
by Phil222 on 2019/05/12 04:27
I have use this app for the last three years and I’ve tried dozens of different video editing apps and I also use more complex ones like Adobe Premier and this one has always been the one that I go back to because of how well it is able to intelligently choose parts of clips the best fit the movie altogether and the template style options and music options are far better than other apps so your movies are more likely to be unique. It also handles the large amount of data without bugs and renders video quickly. Great app And I look forward to seeing what’s to come.
BE WARNED - 1 trial even if it’s been 5 years
by Mollewog on 2018/06/27 13:07
I recently trialed, or so I thought, this app. After searching through multiple video editing apps, I came across this one and “trialed” it. I didn’t realize I had purchased it until my bank statement showed it. I had no response from this company, nor Apple, to me signing for a free trial letting me know I had actually purchased the app. According to Magisto, it’s Apple’s policy for a one time free trial. Ok. I understand. Perhaps it was in the fine print... but I believe that Magisto should care for their potential customers and reiterate that... or at the very least give a warning when signing for the free trial that it is not actually a free trial. Sidenote - I apparently signed up 5 years ago when my baby was a few weeks old. I had completely forgotten about it. So, my fault..for not reading the fine print somewhere, wherever it is. And for forgetting I had tried a free trial. I get it and I paid the 32 dollars for this app. Lesson learned... but felt I should let others know so they don’t make the same mistake I did. Bottom line - good app but not for the price. You can find better for less $$. I don’t trust this company so I don’t plan to use it nor will I recommend it.
Magisto App will make your family and friends cry tears of joy
by Jumpinjackfire on 2017/12/20 15:46
I don't generally write reviews. However this Magisto app is special. It syncs together videos and pictures making you the photographer look like you are as good of a movie director as Ron Howard. My pictures and videos of vacations, friends weddings, holidays spent with family, Eagle Scout ceremony, etc are priceless. I like to take several pictures and short video clips of 10 to 30 seconds. Then just pick the pic and videos you want. Select a music theme from Magisto along with a title to your movie and Magesto's magic does the rest. Get This App. Enough Said!
I would probably not recommend it.
by The Nightmare Hour on 2019/05/27 23:14
Despite its ability to arrange your content into quality videos with minimal effort, there are a few things that stand in the way of me giving Magisto five stars. The app is unreasonably limited for those who cannot afford the premium addition. However, buying the premium addition leads to renewal the app doesn’t warn you about. Magisto actually makes it quite difficult to access the controls through which one might be able to cancel subscription. That is not the last of the problems, though. For those working on tablets rather than phones, there is no version that allows users to enable a landscape setting, contrary to many apps on the store. It’s these minor inconveniences that restricts me from being compelled to use the app.
it's ok.
by Reviewgirl432 on 2018/04/05 16:00
I was looking for a video making app, and after i watched the video, i was pleased. But when i used the app it said $30 a month, personally, i think this is way too much. Some people wouldn't mind paying that, but others like me don't. I think you should add the price in the video for this app so people know how much they need to pay. Next, I'm glad there is a 7 day trial, so i tried it out, but you have to have atleast 15 seconds of a video. When i make videos, i prefer to put together what i have so far, to see how it looks, and then add on. but mine was only about 6 seconds so far, so it wouldn't let me look at the progress. Other than that, it's a good app. If you are willing to pay, then i suggest it.
Great app
by jmb12031101 on 2018/07/29 06:19
First review I’ve ever done no lie but this is a dope app for makin ur own short videos I jus used it for my first time but I can see things i would like to be better about it but overall it’s a great app just needs a little bit of refinements in all aspects more powerful more user friendly help with things the common person wouldn’t understand make it more bold in the appeal or naming perhaps. Just hoping it turns into an app I’ll love n maybe possibly be able to make money from because there is a business section I haven’t tried it yet
Dropped my rating to 2 star because..
by Maliceon on 2019/03/05 13:31
It used to be intuitive and now it's so random it's just clips and crap music. The #1 reason for using this app for getting to checkout all the new indy artists on the rise. Now it's just a lot of public domain stuff. Also I have a pro subscription and it still won't let me make a long video. Just a short or medium. After more than 5-6 years at the rate of $9.99 a month totaling around $600 one would think I could make a full 3min video by now. 😟 but no. I'm not going to renew my subscription this next billing cycle. It's not worth it. I will be back later in the year to check and see if any updates have improved the experience because I really did love this app for many years. I hope it gets back to good.
Don’t subscribe to Premium
by 123vj on 2019/02/11 15:41
Premium subscribers have no option to edit their videos or rearrange the images, slides or information flow. They have to choose a few of the resources and let some AI or program decide what to do with them. If you are lucky, they come in the intended order. Otherwise, you will see a highly jumbled video which serves no purpose. It’s a purely deceptive technique on their part to force users to subscribe to more expensive professional or business subscription to edit their creations. They should let the premium subscribers at least to rearrange the images in a proper order before its is stylized by their program. Disappointed that I have to pray each time to make a video that things will fall in place. A very dicey situation.
Subscription scam
by The Real Deli on 2018/12/05 18:10
I had cancelled this months ago and realized in an accounting audit that it was still connected to my iTunes Store account. Just went through the cancellation process again and the way that it is designed as a trap to make you think you’ve canceled when in fact it takes two tries and some back stepping to get a message that tells you to go to the iTunes account to cancel, which in and of itself is a convoluted process. Your cancellation process is clearly a trap, and I wish iTunes would regulate people like you from using their payment platform. You may have a good rating for people who want to use your app, you get a one star from me for your support telling me there was nothing they could do to help that I should contact the iTunes Store. Standby your rip off program.
READ FOR INFO ON HOW TO CANCEL
by Maimoon416@ on 2019/04/15 07:42
Their free trial was helpful but it was a pain to cancel everything. ***READ FOR INFO ON HOW TO CANCEL -go to the Settings app -then go to iTunes & App Stores -tap on Apple ID at the top -select view Apple ID -go down to Subscriptions -click on the app you want to cancel and cancel it Hope this helped some of you since it took me forever sitting in frustration and anxiety to cancel the app on time before it charged me. Instead of just saying we should cancel in iTunes they should explain how to do it. SMH. I loved the app honestly. I didn’t need anything too professional since I was just using it for family and friends but it was really too expensive for what it was. I can’t be paying $20-$30 a month for this when I only used it for one project in the last month. I have other more important priorities, bills to pay for. If it were $10-$20 for the whole app, not just monthly then I feel like more people would buy it. This monthly thing is really not helping you guys. Feels more like a swindlers scam than a professional app.
Stopping Payments is a nightmare!!!
by Stormyrose on 2018/06/21 12:33
I was going to cancel my subscription for a month or two but to do so is seemingly impossible. I cancelled from the app, or so thought. When I got charged again I though, “well, I must have done it incorrectly”. This time, I get a pop up that says I have to unsubscribe through my iTunes id. I follow the steps to unsubscribe from there-it’s listed but there is no unsubscribe option. I email support and am refunded $7.57. Upon closer look at my account I find that when I “ugraded” from a $6.99 plan to a $15 plan it wasn’t actually an upgrade. I was still being charged both. Upgrade apparently means something very different to Magisto. I file a dispute with PayPal. They are still looking into it. Today My BANK account-not PayPal is charged another $15 from Magisto!!! I go to look at my iTubes Subscription and it is listed as cancelled. Magisto is still telling me I have to unsubscribe through iTunes and not them. This is a mess! What am i supposed to do to stop the payments-close my bank account and PayPal???? These people cannot be trusted. Not only have I lost money, but the amount of time I’ve wasted on just unsubscribing from this ridiculous app is absolutely absurd!!
Disappointing
by @janicejuvices_ on 2018/12/30 16:36
The process of getting the final result was a little confusing and time wasting but it wasn’t horrible. The BAD part was the video quality :/ I looked through the reviews and saw that other people had the same problem and the response that some people got was that I had to use the same device that I recorded with... which I did and still got horrible quality. Another problem that some people had was cancelling their subscription. At first I was panicking because their cancellation process was confusing and the price was quite up there, but all I had to do was go on their help services and they lead me through the proper steps. Overall, the app isn’t that great and it’s confusing to manage at first.
Not what it used to be.
by TheEgo on 2018/11/03 21:47
I was a fan of Magistro for the simplicity of making a good short video in HD in their early days, it was an App way ahead of Apple an Google In terms of making automated videos from pictures and anything you have in your photo album. It was perhaps the first AI video making App. Recently downloaded the App and was totally disappointed. The interface was changed in many ways, trying to blend the App more into a social media platform, which is not what you are looking in the first place. The billing is horrible! You can’t even make a video without committing to a subscription and despite the “free to cancel” option I won’t expend time on any app that if is not what I need will have to devote time on canceling subscriptions. It was a great App, so sorry for what they made out of it.
This trash app cant do anything it says it can
by PixL_Acsam on 2018/11/15 20:30
This app says that it can edit and make videos and movies professionally, but I tried it and it doesnt even let you set a specific order for the clips you use, it just randomly plays them out of order. All I want is to cut portions of a video but this piece of trash expects me to pay $25 a month for a version that adds even more useless crap. If I am expected to pay for trash editing then I might as well throw all my life savings into a fire, there really is no difference in this case. Take away the subscription crap, then I will consider using this cheap, good for nothing app. Hope the Magisto CEO are having fun writing fake reviews about how fun this app is, because I can clearly see that this cant do anything more than just screw up your videos.
Subscribe and they'll show you all the templates you CAN'T use.
by ptezco on 2019/04/12 19:27
I’m also sick and tired about not being able to filter outer the filters I am not subscribed to. I am ALREADY PAYING MONEY for this thing. It is frustrating the sensation of paying and not having access to a bunch of stuff. I know that’s the way things are but that doesn't have to be rubbing it in on my face EVERY TIME I try to make a video. Just put a filter: I pay for the so-called PREMIUM. IT's $5 a month. Not nothing. A great deal of money if you ask me. I deserve to have clean access to the stuff I have access to. The product itself is worth paying for it. What is annoying and frustrating is the aggressive marketing tactics they use to entice you to upgrade.
Needs a music upgrade
by very, very useful on 2017/12/28 12:46
I use this app for a lot of things. I have the full professional upgrade. For the most part, this app does everything I need. The only downside, for me, seeing how much I use the app, is that more editing styles are needed. I would also strongly encourage the creators of this app to allow music from the users personal iTunes account. A lot of the music available works great with the videos. Again, for how frequently it’s used, Videos start to get repetitive without more editing and music selections.
Okay...
by Drewawesome on 2018/05/28 22:18
Overall I like the concept of it and I do enjoy it, have some issues. First, it doesn’t put the pictures where you would expect them to be. Also if you have more than one clip it’s not always in the order you’d think it was in. If people are actually making your videos they should make your videos make since, and putting clips in weird orders, putting pictures in wrong spots, is not the way to do it. Also I wish you didn’t have to pay to make your minutes longer than a minute and a half, and the only way you can make them longer is by going premium! I wish this app was just a little thought out better, and it would be nice if it where updated
Family Memories
by Patsylee321 on 2017/09/21 17:46
This app is an easy, quick way to share special family moments! I love that I can add music from my own playlist! The app provides a great selection of themes and allows me to choose a length that is easy to share on Facebook to share with friends. I have used it with my preschool class to share with parents, adding just the right song that demonstrates the new concept we are learning and the students actively involved in learning activities! The students love seeing their movie as well.
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.
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.
Scam Don’t Do It!
by The GTR Guy on 2019/02/24 04:08
I barely tried the app itself because I noticed the negative reviews right after I did the free subscription. Of course, I was then stuck like the many others in the reviews. It took me forever to get around the scam of unsubscribing. Real slick scam to have an unsubscribe button in the app that doesn’t truly unsubscribe you. Had to go into itunes account and kill it there under the subscriptions section. Don’t know why Apple allows this garbage but I’ll have to watch my account for the next few months to make sure they don’t hit me like they did others. I’m never loading a new app again before reading the reviews! You have been warned! Seems like they found a way to give themselves a nice star rating to fool you too. These guys are good.
Not a video editing app! Beware
by Real Thinkscape on 2018/10/04 22:46
You upload all your private videos/photos to some company's servers. This is a front for a website that generates montages from your clips with some effects added. When you upload, you have to accept a long terms of service agreement document, written by lawyers, in a language that will make you cringe. Basically you give away your videos and hope for the best... If you're fine with that, expect to wait for hours for your HD and 4k videos to finish uploading... Oh and also don't expect any decent resolution results - they limit the output resolution to laughable SD, or if you pay heaps you get 720p (like it's 2010 again)... Or you can pay even more for "business" (!?) to get the privilege to download a last-gen 1080p version.
An amazing app
by 2C3p2S4 on 2018/11/27 20:14
It is an amazing app and I love it, it has everything that I need to make top notch looking edited videos that have gotten praise great praise. The only thing that I don’t like is the music choices that they offer, they are not the best but when you look you could find one you could work with. I just wish that there were more options where you could search and choose the exact song that you want. Otherwise it is a grade A+ app in my book and I would recommend it to anyone.
Not easy to operate and difficult to cancel
by no way 22 on 2018/10/16 15:23
I uploaded 72 photos. It did not tell me that it was too many. It automatically condensed my photos and did not include all of my photos. The editing options are very difficult and not easy to operate. So I never managed to make the video the way I wanted with all photos. Then I tried to cancel. Which there are multiple steps in order to cancel. You have to cancel it in the app. Then go to your Apple ID settings and unsubscribe to which I’m still unsure if I’m successfully cancelled. They get you to sign up for a free trial then will automatically charge you if you don’t unsubscribe but I can’t unsubscribe successfully. VERY CROOKED way of doing things especially when I’m not even satisfied with the apps function.
meh..
by mrsvle on 2018/03/14 08:31
Not sure you can really purchase creativity. Effects are canned and cliche, music is bland and innocuous. And the constant pressure to upgrade is obscene. Also the free tryout version is so limited you’re not inspired to upgrade to the “Professional” version which lets you do incredibly amazing things like change the order of your pictures and add a logo. You won’t be able to download your video unless you upgrade, and sharing your video is essentially advertising for Magisto since their logo will be all over it. In the long run you’ll be much better off getting a real video editing program and learning how to use it. ps. pretty sure most of these review ratings have been jacked
Do not get the paid version
by cat.universe on 2018/02/07 18:53
Too bad that this company has such a poor idea of customer service and is only concerned with the bottom line. When they auto-renewed my yearly subscription they never sent a reminder OR even a receipt for the charge. I only knew they charged me for another year of service because I saw the charge on my credit card. When I asked for a refund with the understanding that I’d circle back in a couple of months for another year of service at that time. they couldn’t be flexible or refund me even though I’ve been a paying customer and fan of the app. Even a great paid service isn’t worth it when the company doesn’t demonstrate willingness to work with loyal customers. Alas, a short sighted decision on their part.
Wont save and play the photos i want
by thewitchhazel on 2018/11/06 13:56
So, since downloading this app lastweek. I feel like a pro in using this app. Its a lot of work but this app has a great future in photo/video slideshow making. 1 thing that really really bothers me is when i edit the movie i made, it wont show the photos i added. For the nth time it shows the photos i dont want instead of the new ones i added. I keep on editing the movie but it seems it has its own stubborn mind on what my movie should look like. It’s annoying. Please fix. Oh and please add a delete button for when you edit the movie.
NOT WHAT IT USED TO BE
by zoe b12 on 2019/09/02 18:46
I downloaded this app about three or two years ago when I first found it and it was PERFECT, I could upload my own music without a problem and cut my clips into the clips I wanted for the video. Here it is 2019 and now the app is wanting me to pay to add more than a certain amount of time the pictures and videos will take up on my video & wont let me upload my own music. First the app tells me to download the song to my phone instead of just iCloud, so I do & then it tells me it can’t be used for some reason, yet I pay for iMusic so I don’t know why it won’t work.. honestly just going to undownload the app and on the look out for something better 👀

I used to love this app, but had no need to use for the las year or so. This week I decided to make a video with pix and vids from a recent trip and OMG how frustrating this app has become. I add certain pix and the end result is never correct. They keep repeating some images and completely not showing others. I have to keep editing the video and it’s never what I ask for. After about 30 tries (no exaggeration) it’s still not making the video collage needed. It seems like the app completely isn’t capable of “memorizing” the pix I add and it’s just doing its own thing. Definitely not worth 30$/month... wouldn’t even pay 30$/year. Unsubscribed 👎👎👎
