Nearly perfect!
by Shalobs on 2019/04/17 11:39
My only comment is that when you use an old video and convert it, the date should be of that date, instead it will give you the current date at the moment which means you have to go back and figure out the exact date and modify it yourself
5 stars
by iuseeditsbecausetherelit on 2019/04/17 01:12
Literally I use this every time I post a video on Instagram and it just makes for an all around aesthetic video so I will use this app forever and you know it’s good because I’m not one to write reviews
AMAZING
by Jack t:))))) on 2019/04/16 18:49
this app looks extremely retro, like a rex orange county music video or something. it’s really easy to use and has straight forward settings. the price is more than worth it
Wonderful app!
by JadaNicoke on 2019/04/16 03:00
AMAZING APP!! this VHS cam is just everything.. I prefer you or anyone to buy a camera then transfer it to this app since you really get a good affect if you love VHS effects! Overall I rate this app 10/10 or 5/5😊
the best out of everything.

How do I record without the static filter at all? And can you take off the red bars that appear in the videos? Will that be an update?
Fix Audio
by Hasaan Careyy on 2019/04/06 04:28
When I import a video, the audio always comes out faster than what they’re actually saying. It’s really annoying and I would love for it to stop.

Really captures the nostalgia like you popped in a vhs from the 90’s. Only thing I wish would be fixed is sometimes the audio doesn’t sync up with the video and it’s distracting when I film skateboard clips.

Feeds your Nostalgia!
by Manley on 2019/03/30 17:22
This is hands down one of my most favorite apps on my phone. I’ve always missed the videos of my childhood; this allows me to either record through the app or upload my own prerecorded videos, to give them that nostalgic retro feel of a traditional “on-the-shoulder camcorder” look! Great job at making a quality application!😁
Awesome

by CarsonTheMarble on 2019/03/15 13:48
I love this app. The problem is there needs to be a copy a tape option. I want to make a YouTube video about a VHS dying from being copied so many times. If you add the copy/generation loss option, I would give this a 5 star rating. Good app, keep up the good work though.

by h giy on 2019/03/05 05:00
Do you have to pay for the app every month or is it a one time thing. Because some thug came up on my credit card saying it was an 8 day trail for 2.99 but after 8 days you had to pay 19.99
Great App... just minor suggestion!
by Wolffangjones on 2019/03/04 00:39
The app is nearly flawless but there should be an option to spoof the time along with the date and speaking of dates why can’t you spoof any future date past the present time (for example why can’t I make the year 2095)
BEST APP EVER!!!

by Mike Lavish on 2019/03/02 18:25

I would love if you guys added an “import” option to add videos so they can have the vhs effect that’s the only reason I downloaded this app. I paid money thinking it already came with this option :/

by discountmolly on 2019/02/15 14:14
I really love using this app. My only complaint however is I wish you could take pictures with it instead of only videos. Hopefully it could be in their next update? If they had to make a separate app purely for vintage-style picture taking though, I would not hesitate to buy it.
Thank you to whoever made this app❤️

I love this app so much because I’m an editor I use it when I need it I have one small complaint and it’s the new update. Whenever I’m about import an edit of mine it does a small little hop in the start, but the rest seems normal it’s just the beginning that’s all I hope you guys can fix that problem but other than that it’s works fluent 👌🏽👌🏽👌🏽
Seriously best VHS app

Great App, But...
by Ronsterbot on 2019/01/31 09:39
Love the app, a real great simulator of 1980s/90s technology. A great feature would be the light bleed effect common in some model camcorders. The effect is seen in many films where the sources of light, lamps, bulbs, the sun, and televisions would cause a bleeding effect and trails when the camera would move. A realistic simulation of this effect would really add a whole new level of realism to the VHS Camcorder. Also perhaps more control over the effects, such as brightness, white balance, and color casting. Other than my suggestions, this is a great app from someone who owns many real 1980s camcorders, this is easily the second best thing!

i love this app i've been using it for so long and it was a great purchase, but for some reason now it hasn't been letting me import more than 12 seconds of a video and it's really annoying. considering that I paid for this app i think that that should be fixed or else i want my money back.

by m7amdani on 2019/01/26 05:59

Do NOT purchase this
by kowaleski24 on 2019/01/25 21:34
The live camera doesn’t save the footage you just recorded half the time. The import option also only OCCASIONALLY works. The camera seemingly automatically limits your recording time to 4:00 minutes, after that it stops. The app is extremely flawed and not easy to work with in the slightest, in fact, it is near impossible. Biggest waste of 4$ ever, DO NOT MAKE THIS PURCHASE.

It’s fun and amazing. No it’s not a fake review, I’ve been using this app for the longest and it’s never failed at making a video perfectly vhs like. It’s definitely a kinda app for grunge like people. It’s definitely a well made app with its settings and I would definitely recommend it
Awesome App!..Just a Few, Minor Things.
by whalio123 on 2018/05/18 02:43
This app is amazing, I use it a lot! I love it a lot. There are some little fixes I suggest. Well, for starters, it would be awesome it have the little multicolored interference like some other users have said to make it look more 80s. I also think the font/date should be a but more 80s as well. You can kinda tell it’s fake. Other than that, this app is awesome. I also need help with something else. Some might find this easy to fix, but I’m not good with app updates or anything, heh.😂 But I would really appreciate it if someone could tell me why my phone isn’t updating for the app. I will go to menu and I will press the “Tap here to have full update!” Or whatever it says. So I’ll click on it but it just brings me back to the AppStore and the app. I’ll go to my little update section and it won’t say the VHS Cam needs to be updated. I’ve done all that I can to try to figure it out. I’ll go to settings, I’ll look in the VHS Camcorder settings, but I can’t seem to find out how to update it. I’m afraid I’m over thinking all of it or it has to do with my phone. I have an iPhone 6s if that has something to do with it.. I would absolutely love to have all the filters, mess with the date, and be able to film longer. May anyone help me? Thanks!
Another note...
by Tq mike on 2017/11/22 04:07
Note that most of the reviews are from 2 years ago when the app was in its early stages. Now this app has use of the flashlight, there are 3 filters (none, retrocolor, b&w, and nuclear[which is my favorite]) and the resolution options are 480, 720, and 1080p with 24,25 and 60fps. there is also now an option for random tape dropouts which is great. A few people are talking about making it so you can play music while recording so you dont have “a quiet video, or have to just talk...” Id just like to say that this app looks very authentic and you couldnt play music on your camcorder back then! lol i also think its very unnecessary. also importing videos into the app seems like a cool idea but also, ehh, you dont really need to guys, record what you want to with the app! theres no reason this app shouldnt have 5 stars across the board!
Amazing Retro App!
by KBR779 on 2017/11/28 01:17
From it’s 80s purple/blue aesthetic to its videotape recorder button styles, VHS Camcorder nails the perfect time machine into the past of video recording while still maintaining cutting edge videotaping resolutions. It’s everything that any true retro video fan would love, from silly titles to spoofing the date, with multivariable grain levels, filters, and frame dropping. With its function to run up to 1080p at 30fps, it still retains clean and modern video resolutions as well as the option to upload and convert previous videos, a huge plus for this app. However a few changes could be implemented, such as the addition of different filters, more aesthetic control, as well as options to make the video worse or to include more static. Otherwise this app is absolutely amazing, completely worth the money, and serves as an excellent point of true 80s nostalgia
Please look in to my suggestion!! :)
by hesitant planet on 2018/06/07 20:30
I really love this app! I had the regular version before and this is the best pro version of any VHS camcorder app so decided to buy this one. I wanted to import a video from a few weeks ago and it was awesome how I could change the date to match the exact same day I took the video. HOWEVER, I realised there was no way to change the time on the video which kinda bummed me out (the video I wanted to import was taken at night time and the time I was importing the video the time read ‘3:20 pm’) so i have to wait until sometime later tonight to import it, that way I can post the video without the time being weird. I think it would be really cool if you added a feature where you could spoof the time as well since you already have one for the date. Thanks for taking the time to read this!!

Suggestion/s
by Rafa•_• on 2018/08/09 03:13
It’s a very good app; I bought it because I like old type videos you know, pretty cool how you can set a title for your videos and everything. Then I thought that it’ll be much better if you can take pictures in it, I know the app its about a recorder app but it’ll be much better if you can take pictures and edit pics from your Camera Roll! Like I have a lot of pics that I can edit from this app even videos. I will like to have that feature in the app... I was even gonna make a refund of it just because of that but I decided to leave this comment here and see if something changes.💯
Music While Recording
by Thugnificent_____ on 2018/08/12 15:52
I installed this app yesterday for a house party and it was a HIT. The adjustments on the menu screen are helpful (adjusting the time stamp, resolution, title, etc.), however, the only suggestion I have is to allow music from the user’s device play in the background. I use Apple Music and I notice when I begin to play a song and open this app, the song immediately pauses. I really enjoy this app and I highly recommend it to 80s/90s enthusiasts. I notice other reviewers mentioned the music factor and I hope this is something that can be resolved. 😊
Love It!!!

Totally worth the money. I was going back and forth between multiple options and I’m very glad I went with this one. The video is convincing and the audio distortion seems spot on as well. I have nothing negative to say about this app. The only item I’d add to a wishlist would be to be able to add a “blip” in the video whenever you want (the multicolored interference that you would occasionally see in old recordings). Just a quick tap on the screen to do it would be perfect.
Button placement
by Derek López on 2018/03/03 22:30
This app is amazing and I’m constantly using it, but when it comes to take videos of myself I find It awkward when watching a video back of me recording myself because you see yourself pressing the record button with one hand and then switching hands to use the zoom in and zoom out. I feel like it would be better if you guys put the record button and the zoom in and out buttons on the same side.
WORTH the $4, by far!!!
by CobraJones on 2018/09/07 12:03
Some people complain about the price of the app. You will spend more than that on your next cup of coffee. Compared the features of the "free" apps (with in-app purchases), VHS Camcorder is far more versatile with different feature, offers a better look, and is still incredibly easy to use. That $4 cup of coffee will only be good for the next hour. You'll use this app for YEARS to come, with further updates on the way. Highest recommendation I can give!
This is literally amazing
by Sam✈️✈️✈️ on 2018/12/30 04:44
This is a game changer when it comes to posting aesthetic vaporwave late night posts. The fact that the quality of the video is so bad that it is literally perfect and it looks real, unlike the cheap overlays you would have to search for all over the internet and social media. I recommend this app to anyone who wants to put a little retro in their memories. Such a great deal too for $3.99. It’s not free, but it is TOTALLY worth it!!
Great app! But a few changes I’d hope to see in future.
by Megan Nhieu on 2018/07/24 18:41
Love the application , but wish there would be more options for the time & date. I wish that when you import a video, the time & date at which the video was taken would be on the video. Or even when you can “spoof” the date , I want to be able to do the time as well instead of it just doing the real time at which you are converting the video. Overall, great app!
This app is very epic but has one problem
by Boxerbit on 2018/09/26 06:49
I love this app since I’m a huge fan of vhs and just 80s stuff in general I’ve recorded a lot of videos on it and currently making a project with this app. The only problem I would say it has is when I import videos it’s all squashed up and looks bad I don’t if it’s my phone but I would like to see this problem fixed or something that I can fix it. Thank you for making a great app!!!
GREAT
by bdbsjeidhshsjdhdjdjdjdhjf on 2017/12/05 04:50
great app but i think you should add some vhs glitches you can use while recording (like bad tracking) and also you should work on the vhs filter a bit more. you can tell it is not actual vhs when you see the "3D" outlines on everything. plus you should work on the date text as you can tell that it is fake. other than all that, awesome app.
Awesome app! Just a few issues..
by Kelskaz on 2018/10/18 20:17
Sometimes the app will crash on me for no reason, or sometimes after trying to edit a video. And other times, it’ll refuse to finish editing said video. I’ve only encountered these glitches in ONE session and never again. I love this app, it has THE BEST aesthetic VHS look in my opinion. One thing i’m hoping for is the addition of the ability to edit photos in a similar manner. Crossing my fingers!
Feeds your Nostalgia!
by Manley on 2019/03/30 17:22
This is hands down one of my most favorite apps on my phone. I’ve always missed the videos of my childhood; this allows me to either record through the app or upload my own prerecorded videos, to give them that nostalgic retro feel of a traditional “on-the-shoulder camcorder” look! Great job at making a quality application!😁
Great app
by ohyeahhugo on 2019/02/14 02:21
I love this app so much because I’m an editor I use it when I need it I have one small complaint and it’s the new update. Whenever I’m about import an edit of mine it does a small little hop in the start, but the rest seems normal it’s just the beginning that’s all I hope you guys can fix that problem but other than that it’s works fluent 👌🏽👌🏽👌🏽
Great app!
by Wes_and_his_iPhone on 2018/08/23 13:16
I searched and searched and searched for a video layover app that would make it look like an old VHS tape. I found a lot, but this one is the best. For the price, what you get and the quality of the video (which you want to be bad) this is the app to get it. I downloaded them all to test them out side by side in this one won! Just wish it had more customization options towards the video.
I LOVE IT BUT...
by José Del Toro on 2018/06/17 17:08
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS APP. I have never written a review for any app but this one is definitely worth writing. It does exactly what you want it to do! The only downside about this app would be the fact that you can’t have your music playing on your device while recording or even when the app is just opened. Other then that 12/10 recommend.
Please Read
by Invoke99 on 2017/11/20 23:17
This app is really kool, however one thing I noticed nobody ever says or mentions is how u can’t play music wile recording. It would be so much better if u can record n play music in the background, instead of having a really silent video or u having to talk throughout the video. Sometimes you just want t record something without having to talk or have it quiet, Please fix that or give us a option to play music wile being used.
Nostalgia!
by Jrossol on 2018/04/12 21:42
I grew up in the 90s and this looks so much like the footage we would shoot on our camera. I also love that the app now lets you import your regular footage. Sometimes I wish I had caught a memory with my phone camera instead of the app. I love now that I can pick and choose which to import into the app. It’s perfect!
Allow music to be played while recording.
by Lil G Co on 2017/12/01 17:11
Is there a way I would be able to play music at the same time while recording off this app? If there is not, it would be very essential if y’all could make it possible. Other than that, the app runs very smoothly and I love using it!
The best retro camera out there
by Sony Santana on 2018/03/13 14:20
I think this is the best retro camera out there because it has almost all the features that I wanted in a retro camera app. I would really love it they do more filters and more options on the app. Other that that I think the app is awesome and it just have what you are looking for!
Perfect VHS Cam Aesthetic
by Mike Lavish on 2019/03/02 18:25
I love this app and everything it does. Only thing I’d like to see change is the app remembering that I purchased the upgraded features. I Wish I could open the app and just start filming without me having go through the menu and reminding it that I purchased the upgrade every time.
It works
by 4amdrive on 2018/04/23 04:20
I use this for my instagram videos. I take the videos I have and edit them on iMovie then when the movie is edited and complete I upload it to vhs and run it through that way. Upload it straight to Instagram and the video quality is legit! I guess it could use more filters?
Exactly what I wanted
by Grei5on on 2018/04/06 00:48
This app is amazing. It’s definitely worth the money in my opinion. I love all the features, my favorite being the pause and play feature. My friend and I are recording a video project for class and this is EXACTLY what we needed. If you’re looking for a great vhs camera app this is definitely for you! Love love love it!!!
fantastic except
by SamPatton on 2018/08/31 01:34
When you import a video, it time stamps it with the current date and time, NOT the date and time of the original video. That’s a bummer. It’s minor, but I was hoping to go back and convert a number of old videos, and I don’t want them to have the wrong date and time. Th app does let you spoof the date but not the time, so I can’t manually change things unfortunately
It’s actually pretty amazing.
by Josh 968648)86 on 2019/01/15 12:57
It’s fun and amazing. No it’s not a fake review, I’ve been using this app for the longest and it’s never failed at making a video perfectly vhs like. It’s definitely a kinda app for grunge like people. It’s definitely a well made app with its settings and I would definitely recommend it
Simply far and away the best VHS app
by Phil Ramone on 2018/08/30 03:15
This rarevision app is totally superb, the most authentic looking vhs app, by far. Like all of the others are mere novelties, inauthentic apps with hokey and cartoonish like effects, most of which barely resembles an old camcorder. This is my favorite app, I really enjoy also taking screen shots from the footage and using it on IG.
I think it’s pretty great
by discountmolly on 2019/02/15 14:14
I really love using this app. My only complaint however is I wish you could take pictures with it instead of only videos. Hopefully it could be in their next update? If they had to make a separate app purely for vintage-style picture taking though, I would not hesitate to buy it.
Great App... just minor suggestion!
by Wolffangjones on 2019/03/04 00:39
The app is nearly flawless but there should be an option to spoof the time along with the date and speaking of dates why can’t you spoof any future date past the present time (for example why can’t I make the year 2095)
No portrait mode!
by DaveAllardice on 2018/08/07 03:23
No portrait mode is a major bummer as now I have about 75% less use for this app. Easy to use. Simple interface. Lacks portrait mode though. Can’t believe this isn’t an option especially with Instagram stories being portrait. I should maybe have checked the description first but thought that would be an option for sure.
Nearly perfect!
by Shalobs on 2019/04/17 11:39
My only comment is that when you use an old video and convert it, the date should be of that date, instead it will give you the current date at the moment which means you have to go back and figure out the exact date and modify it yourself
Great app that could be even greater
by NotoriousMiguel on 2018/03/11 19:48
I think it would be super cool if you can switch from selfie to not selfie as you record. I also think a wider array of filters would be awesome but the app rocks! It's super nostalgic and functionality wise it's pretty much perfect , it would Be cool if there was added aspects to make it more fun ! Can't wait for the updates
This app is great, but we have a problem
by Zacksrevenge on 2018/03/14 19:23
First of all, I love this app. It really helps with expressing a unique style. But literally every single time I try to import a video it either crashes immediately or only imports 1-2 seconds worth of the video (also making the video very choppy on top of that). This definitely needs to be fixed or might just give up on the app.
Only films landscape mode
by Cake46 on 2018/03/22 20:48
I love this app, but why is it that, although able to film vertically, the end results doesn’t show vertically? Only horizontally or landscape mode. For example when I uploaded my videos on Snapchat it turns them upside down. Why is that?
Videos from camera roll won’t import :(
by Nlah blah on 2019/02/25 10:19
Hi I’m having trouble with the app, I’ve recorded a few videos & ive actually tried recording new videos & they won’t save. Also I tried importing videos & they won’t save either :( any suggestions? But overrall I love the app, it’s helping with making a lot new content
A super cool app with an aggravating bug.
by HeroicStar on 2018/06/30 06:27
I like this app. It's old school cool but what this app does not do well is save videos!!! I lose a video if I accidentally minimize the app before it's done saving. I lose the video if I get a low storage warning. I lose the video, well, for no reason at all. I feel like when I do use the app for taking videos, it's about a 40% success rate of actually being able to see the video later!!!
Does what it’s supposed to.
by Dustie_bunny on 2018/06/11 15:26
Quick and easy VHS look and feel, plus the ability to import videos and add effect. My only wish is a slider to determine % of effect. Some videos it’s great, some i would love to be able to turn the effect down about halfway. Still a great, user friendly app.
Nice and easy to use
by tydollah on 2019/04/02 09:21
Really captures the nostalgia like you popped in a vhs from the 90’s. Only thing I wish would be fixed is sometimes the audio doesn’t sync up with the video and it’s distracting when I film skateboard clips.
It’s cool, stop acting like it’s not.
by Peachcurls on 2018/09/12 18:44
The 90’s were tight. I think there was something about watching videos with chase quality that made you feel all warm inside. This app is cool for that. Maybe I’m a hipster, or maybe I just loved my childhood. Who’s to say?
A must have
by Auproma on 2018/07/17 18:01
As a videographer, cinematographer, and as a guy who misses tape based cameras, I have a lot of fun with this app. It saves the time of trying to recreate the same effect in my editing software and is better to get many kinds of shots with. Highly recommended.
import issues
by Kaylee .D.Y.A on 2019/01/27 18:11
i love this app i've been using it for so long and it was a great purchase, but for some reason now it hasn't been letting me import more than 12 seconds of a video and it's really annoying. considering that I paid for this app i think that that should be fixed or else i want my money back.
Don’t waste ur time on any other app
by bobunham on 2018/09/09 01:25
This is so good! And unlike the other membership apps its a one time purchase allowing u to use it over and over or once in a while without it being a drag

by LogPerkoo on 2018/12/19 23:01
This app just feels good to use It kind of makes me excited about life again Even when I was little using actual camcorders I liked that what I was filming wasn’t exactly what I saw and that’s art I guess
Seriously best VHS app
by bsquaredbars on 2019/02/12 03:12
I had Rad VHS before and it was cool, but this one is just better. It's more user friendly, it looks freaking awesome, lots of customization and whatever but it's just all around fantastic. This is the only review of an app I've ever written. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I like it so far except
by DayWalkerDANI on 2018/11/24 03:11
Please add the ability to add our own music over the video! It would make the app perfect so we could make music videos and stuff. I just downloaded it the other day so maybe I can do this but so far I can't figure out how.
5 stars
by iuseeditsbecausetherelit on 2019/04/17 01:12
Literally I use this every time I post a video on Instagram and it just makes for an all around aesthetic video so I will use this app forever and you know it’s good because I’m not one to write reviews

this app looks extremely retro, like a rex orange county music video or something. it’s really easy to use and has straight forward settings. the price is more than worth it
Wonderful app!
by JadaNicoke on 2019/04/16 03:00
AMAZING APP!! this VHS cam is just everything.. I prefer you or anyone to buy a camera then transfer it to this app since you really get a good affect if you love VHS effects! Overall I rate this app 10/10 or 5/5😊
the best out of everything.

I love this app. The problem is there needs to be a copy a tape option. I want to make a YouTube video about a VHS dying from being copied so many times. If you add the copy/generation loss option, I would give this a 5 star rating. Good app, keep up the good work though.

Great But Add Fisheye Effect

Looks great but can you add a fisheye effect, many old vhs style videos have a fisheye!

Do you have to pay for the app every month or is it a one time thing. Because some thug came up on my credit card saying it was an 8 day trail for 2.99 but after 8 days you had to pay 19.99
Great App... just minor suggestion!
by Wolffangjones on 2019/03/04 00:39
The app is nearly flawless but there should be an option to spoof the time along with the date and speaking of dates why can’t you spoof any future date past the present time (for example why can’t I make the year 2095)

by mysticbutera on 2019/02/28 20:00
I would love if you guys added an “import” option to add videos so they can have the vhs effect that’s the only reason I downloaded this app. I paid money thinking it already came with this option :/

I really love using this app. My only complaint however is I wish you could take pictures with it instead of only videos. Hopefully it could be in their next update? If they had to make a separate app purely for vintage-style picture taking though, I would not hesitate to buy it.
Thank you to whoever made this app❤️

Seriously best VHS app

Great App, But...
by Ronsterbot on 2019/01/31 09:39
Love the app, a real great simulator of 1980s/90s technology. A great feature would be the light bleed effect common in some model camcorders. The effect is seen in many films where the sources of light, lamps, bulbs, the sun, and televisions would cause a bleeding effect and trails when the camera would move. A realistic simulation of this effect would really add a whole new level of realism to the VHS Camcorder. Also perhaps more control over the effects, such as brightness, white balance, and color casting. Other than my suggestions, this is a great app from someone who owns many real 1980s camcorders, this is easily the second best thing!

i love this app i've been using it for so long and it was a great purchase, but for some reason now it hasn't been letting me import more than 12 seconds of a video and it's really annoying. considering that I paid for this app i think that that should be fixed or else i want my money back.

Do NOT purchase this
by kowaleski24 on 2019/01/25 21:34
The live camera doesn’t save the footage you just recorded half the time. The import option also only OCCASIONALLY works. The camera seemingly automatically limits your recording time to 4:00 minutes, after that it stops. The app is extremely flawed and not easy to work with in the slightest, in fact, it is near impossible. Biggest waste of 4$ ever, DO NOT MAKE THIS PURCHASE.

It’s fun and amazing. No it’s not a fake review, I’ve been using this app for the longest and it’s never failed at making a video perfectly vhs like. It’s definitely a kinda app for grunge like people. It’s definitely a well made app with its settings and I would definitely recommend it
Awesome App!..Just a Few, Minor Things.
by whalio123 on 2018/05/18 02:43
This app is amazing, I use it a lot! I love it a lot. There are some little fixes I suggest. Well, for starters, it would be awesome it have the little multicolored interference like some other users have said to make it look more 80s. I also think the font/date should be a but more 80s as well. You can kinda tell it’s fake. Other than that, this app is awesome. I also need help with something else. Some might find this easy to fix, but I’m not good with app updates or anything, heh.😂 But I would really appreciate it if someone could tell me why my phone isn’t updating for the app. I will go to menu and I will press the “Tap here to have full update!” Or whatever it says. So I’ll click on it but it just brings me back to the AppStore and the app. I’ll go to my little update section and it won’t say the VHS Cam needs to be updated. I’ve done all that I can to try to figure it out. I’ll go to settings, I’ll look in the VHS Camcorder settings, but I can’t seem to find out how to update it. I’m afraid I’m over thinking all of it or it has to do with my phone. I have an iPhone 6s if that has something to do with it.. I would absolutely love to have all the filters, mess with the date, and be able to film longer. May anyone help me? Thanks!
Another note...
by Tq mike on 2017/11/22 04:07
Note that most of the reviews are from 2 years ago when the app was in its early stages. Now this app has use of the flashlight, there are 3 filters (none, retrocolor, b&w, and nuclear[which is my favorite]) and the resolution options are 480, 720, and 1080p with 24,25 and 60fps. there is also now an option for random tape dropouts which is great. A few people are talking about making it so you can play music while recording so you dont have “a quiet video, or have to just talk...” Id just like to say that this app looks very authentic and you couldnt play music on your camcorder back then! lol i also think its very unnecessary. also importing videos into the app seems like a cool idea but also, ehh, you dont really need to guys, record what you want to with the app! theres no reason this app shouldnt have 5 stars across the board!
Amazing Retro App!
by KBR779 on 2017/11/28 01:17
From it’s 80s purple/blue aesthetic to its videotape recorder button styles, VHS Camcorder nails the perfect time machine into the past of video recording while still maintaining cutting edge videotaping resolutions. It’s everything that any true retro video fan would love, from silly titles to spoofing the date, with multivariable grain levels, filters, and frame dropping. With its function to run up to 1080p at 30fps, it still retains clean and modern video resolutions as well as the option to upload and convert previous videos, a huge plus for this app. However a few changes could be implemented, such as the addition of different filters, more aesthetic control, as well as options to make the video worse or to include more static. Otherwise this app is absolutely amazing, completely worth the money, and serves as an excellent point of true 80s nostalgia
Please look in to my suggestion!! :)
by hesitant planet on 2018/06/07 20:30
I really love this app! I had the regular version before and this is the best pro version of any VHS camcorder app so decided to buy this one. I wanted to import a video from a few weeks ago and it was awesome how I could change the date to match the exact same day I took the video. HOWEVER, I realised there was no way to change the time on the video which kinda bummed me out (the video I wanted to import was taken at night time and the time I was importing the video the time read ‘3:20 pm’) so i have to wait until sometime later tonight to import it, that way I can post the video without the time being weird. I think it would be really cool if you added a feature where you could spoof the time as well since you already have one for the date. Thanks for taking the time to read this!!

Suggestion/s
by Rafa•_• on 2018/08/09 03:13
It’s a very good app; I bought it because I like old type videos you know, pretty cool how you can set a title for your videos and everything. Then I thought that it’ll be much better if you can take pictures in it, I know the app its about a recorder app but it’ll be much better if you can take pictures and edit pics from your Camera Roll! Like I have a lot of pics that I can edit from this app even videos. I will like to have that feature in the app... I was even gonna make a refund of it just because of that but I decided to leave this comment here and see if something changes.💯
Music While Recording
by Thugnificent_____ on 2018/08/12 15:52
I installed this app yesterday for a house party and it was a HIT. The adjustments on the menu screen are helpful (adjusting the time stamp, resolution, title, etc.), however, the only suggestion I have is to allow music from the user’s device play in the background. I use Apple Music and I notice when I begin to play a song and open this app, the song immediately pauses. I really enjoy this app and I highly recommend it to 80s/90s enthusiasts. I notice other reviewers mentioned the music factor and I hope this is something that can be resolved. 😊
Love It!!!
by Rawk Lobster 64 on 2018/03/17 19:00
Totally worth the money. I was going back and forth between multiple options and I’m very glad I went with this one. The video is convincing and the audio distortion seems spot on as well. I have nothing negative to say about this app. The only item I’d add to a wishlist would be to be able to add a “blip” in the video whenever you want (the multicolored interference that you would occasionally see in old recordings). Just a quick tap on the screen to do it would be perfect.
Button placement
by Derek López on 2018/03/03 22:30
This app is amazing and I’m constantly using it, but when it comes to take videos of myself I find It awkward when watching a video back of me recording myself because you see yourself pressing the record button with one hand and then switching hands to use the zoom in and zoom out. I feel like it would be better if you guys put the record button and the zoom in and out buttons on the same side.
WORTH the $4, by far!!!
by CobraJones on 2018/09/07 12:03
Some people complain about the price of the app. You will spend more than that on your next cup of coffee. Compared the features of the "free" apps (with in-app purchases), VHS Camcorder is far more versatile with different feature, offers a better look, and is still incredibly easy to use. That $4 cup of coffee will only be good for the next hour. You'll use this app for YEARS to come, with further updates on the way. Highest recommendation I can give!
This is literally amazing
by Sam✈️✈️✈️ on 2018/12/30 04:44
This is a game changer when it comes to posting aesthetic vaporwave late night posts. The fact that the quality of the video is so bad that it is literally perfect and it looks real, unlike the cheap overlays you would have to search for all over the internet and social media. I recommend this app to anyone who wants to put a little retro in their memories. Such a great deal too for $3.99. It’s not free, but it is TOTALLY worth it!!
Great app! But a few changes I’d hope to see in future.
by Megan Nhieu on 2018/07/24 18:41
Love the application , but wish there would be more options for the time & date. I wish that when you import a video, the time & date at which the video was taken would be on the video. Or even when you can “spoof” the date , I want to be able to do the time as well instead of it just doing the real time at which you are converting the video. Overall, great app!
This app is very epic but has one problem
by Boxerbit on 2018/09/26 06:49
I love this app since I’m a huge fan of vhs and just 80s stuff in general I’ve recorded a lot of videos on it and currently making a project with this app. The only problem I would say it has is when I import videos it’s all squashed up and looks bad I don’t if it’s my phone but I would like to see this problem fixed or something that I can fix it. Thank you for making a great app!!!
GREAT
by bdbsjeidhshsjdhdjdjdjdhjf on 2017/12/05 04:50
great app but i think you should add some vhs glitches you can use while recording (like bad tracking) and also you should work on the vhs filter a bit more. you can tell it is not actual vhs when you see the "3D" outlines on everything. plus you should work on the date text as you can tell that it is fake. other than all that, awesome app.
Awesome app! Just a few issues..
by Kelskaz on 2018/10/18 20:17
Sometimes the app will crash on me for no reason, or sometimes after trying to edit a video. And other times, it’ll refuse to finish editing said video. I’ve only encountered these glitches in ONE session and never again. I love this app, it has THE BEST aesthetic VHS look in my opinion. One thing i’m hoping for is the addition of the ability to edit photos in a similar manner. Crossing my fingers!
Feeds your Nostalgia!
by Manley on 2019/03/30 17:22
This is hands down one of my most favorite apps on my phone. I’ve always missed the videos of my childhood; this allows me to either record through the app or upload my own prerecorded videos, to give them that nostalgic retro feel of a traditional “on-the-shoulder camcorder” look! Great job at making a quality application!😁

I searched and searched and searched for a video layover app that would make it look like an old VHS tape. I found a lot, but this one is the best. For the price, what you get and the quality of the video (which you want to be bad) this is the app to get it. I downloaded them all to test them out side by side in this one won! Just wish it had more customization options towards the video.
I LOVE IT BUT...
by José Del Toro on 2018/06/17 17:08
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS APP. I have never written a review for any app but this one is definitely worth writing. It does exactly what you want it to do! The only downside about this app would be the fact that you can’t have your music playing on your device while recording or even when the app is just opened. Other then that 12/10 recommend.
Please Read
by Invoke99 on 2017/11/20 23:17
This app is really kool, however one thing I noticed nobody ever says or mentions is how u can’t play music wile recording. It would be so much better if u can record n play music in the background, instead of having a really silent video or u having to talk throughout the video. Sometimes you just want t record something without having to talk or have it quiet, Please fix that or give us a option to play music wile being used.
Nostalgia!
by Jrossol on 2018/04/12 21:42
I grew up in the 90s and this looks so much like the footage we would shoot on our camera. I also love that the app now lets you import your regular footage. Sometimes I wish I had caught a memory with my phone camera instead of the app. I love now that I can pick and choose which to import into the app. It’s perfect!
Allow music to be played while recording.
by Lil G Co on 2017/12/01 17:11
Is there a way I would be able to play music at the same time while recording off this app? If there is not, it would be very essential if y’all could make it possible. Other than that, the app runs very smoothly and I love using it!
The best retro camera out there
by Sony Santana on 2018/03/13 14:20

I use this for my instagram videos. I take the videos I have and edit them on iMovie then when the movie is edited and complete I upload it to vhs and run it through that way. Upload it straight to Instagram and the video quality is legit! I guess it could use more filters?
Exactly what I wanted
by Grei5on on 2018/04/06 00:48
This app is amazing. It’s definitely worth the money in my opinion. I love all the features, my favorite being the pause and play feature.

fantastic except
by SamPatton on 2018/08/31 01:34
When you import a video, it time stamps it with the current date and time, NOT the date and time of the original video. That’s a bummer. It’s minor, but I was hoping to go back and convert a number of old videos, and I don’t want them to have the wrong date and time. Th app does let you spoof the date but not the time, so I can’t manually change things unfortunately
It’s actually pretty amazing.

Simply far and away the best VHS app
by Phil Ramone on 2018/08/30 03:15
This rarevision app is totally superb, the most authentic looking vhs app, by far. Like all of the others are mere novelties, inauthentic apps with hokey and cartoonish like effects, most of which barely resembles an old camcorder. This is my favorite app, I really enjoy also taking screen shots from the footage and using it on IG.
I think it’s pretty great

by Wolffangjones on 2019/03/04 00:39
The app is nearly flawless but there should be an option to spoof the time along with the date and speaking of dates why can’t you spoof any future date past the present time (for example why can’t I make the year 2095)
No portrait mode!
by DaveAllardice on 2018/08/07 03:23
No portrait mode is a major bummer as now I have about 75% less use for this app. Easy to use. Simple interface. Lacks portrait mode though. Can’t believe this isn’t an option especially with Instagram stories being portrait. I should maybe have checked the description first but thought that would be an option for sure.
Nearly perfect!
by Shalobs on 2019/04/17 11:39
My only comment is that when you use an old video and convert it, the date should be of that date, instead it will give you the current date at the moment which means you have to go back and figure out the exact date and modify it yourself
Great app that could be even greater
by NotoriousMiguel on 2018/03/11 19:48
I think it would be super cool if you can switch from selfie to not selfie as you record. I also think a wider array of filters would be awesome but the app rocks! It's super nostalgic and functionality wise it's pretty much perfect , it would Be cool if there was added aspects to make it more fun ! Can't wait for the updates
This app is great, but we have a problem
by Zacksrevenge on 2018/03/14 19:23
First of all, I love this app. It really helps with expressing a unique style. But literally every single time I try to import a video it either crashes immediately or only imports 1-2 seconds worth of the video (also making the video very choppy on top of that). This definitely needs to be fixed or might just give up on the app.
Only films landscape mode
by Cake46 on 2018/03/22 20:48
I love this app, but why is it that, although able to film vertically, the end results doesn’t show vertically? Only horizontally or landscape mode. For example when I uploaded my videos on Snapchat it turns them upside down. Why is that?

I like this app. It's old school cool but what this app does not do well is save videos!!! I lose a video if I accidentally minimize the app before it's done saving. I lose the video if I get a low storage warning. I lose the video, well, for no reason at all. I feel like when I do use the app for taking videos, it's about a 40% success rate of actually being able to see the video later!!!
Does what it’s supposed to.

Quick and easy VHS look and feel, plus the ability to import videos and add effect. My only wish is a slider to determine % of effect. Some videos it’s great, some i would love to be able to turn the effect down about halfway. Still a great, user friendly app.
Nice and easy to use

Really captures the nostalgia like you popped in a vhs from the 90’s. Only thing I wish would be fixed is sometimes the audio doesn’t sync up with the video and it’s distracting when I film skateboard clips.
It’s cool, stop acting like it’s not.

The 90’s were tight. I think there was something about watching videos with chase quality that made you feel all warm inside. This app is cool for that. Maybe I’m a hipster, or maybe I just loved my childhood. Who’s to say?
A must have

As a videographer, cinematographer, and as a guy who misses tape based cameras, I have a lot of fun with this app. It saves the time of trying to recreate the same effect in my editing software and is better to get many kinds of shots with. Highly recommended.
import issues

i love this app i've been using it for so long and it was a great purchase, but for some reason now it hasn't been letting me import more than 12 seconds of a video and it's really annoying. considering that I paid for this app i think that that should be fixed or else i want my money back.
Don’t waste ur time on any other app

This is so good! And unlike the other membership apps its a one time purchase allowing u to use it over and over or once in a while without it being a drag

This app just feels good to use It kind of makes me excited about life again Even when I was little using actual camcorders I liked that what I was filming wasn’t exactly what I saw and that’s art I guess
Seriously best VHS app
by bsquaredbars on 2019/02/12 03:12
I had Rad VHS before and it was cool, but this one is just better. It's more user friendly, it looks freaking awesome, lots of customization and whatever but it's just all around fantastic. This is the only review of an app I've ever written. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I like it so far except
by DayWalkerDANI on 2018/11/24 03:11
Please add the ability to add our own music over the video! It would make the app perfect so we could make music videos and stuff. I just downloaded it the other day so maybe I can do this but so far I can't figure out how.
5 stars

Literally I use this every time I post a video on Instagram and it just makes for an all around aesthetic video so I will use this app forever and you know it’s good because I’m not one to write reviews
