Used to be my favorite app then they got greedy EDIT
Edit September 1st 2019: the developers responded with a super lame canned response justifying their 8+ subscription options. I cancelled mine last week. Over this app and on to another- note: don’t download this app friends they’re a greedy bunch who just had to mess with something they had that was good. 1 subscription tier was enough but to add more so you have to pay the highest amount to get everything is just downright rude. DEVELOPERS I SUGGEST YOU START GIVING REAL RESPONSES AND ACTUALLY READING REVIEWS INSTEAD OF SOME COPY AND PASTE BS. You lost me as a customer and I’m sure many more. I take my rating down to 1 star. AND DON’T respond with “try our free version etc blah blah” the free version is horrid and you’ve made it that way so people have to pay. Disappointed in your company. Don’t fix what’s broke, but you just had to have more $$$.
They used to have a FEW subscription options for premium. Now they have a TON so that you have to pay even MORE than you were for even more filters. Won’t be paying anymore. So sad because this used to be my go-to app. But they decided to get greedy because premium payment wasn’t enough already. If I pay $5 a week I shouldn’t have to pay more for more filters. $20/ month?!
App refusing to work
Just recently, maybe a month or two ago, I started noticing that the app wasn’t working. First, it was whenever I wanted to export my video. Once I had finished finding a filter or an effect, it would load as if it’s getting ready to export and then it doesn't export at all. And no matter how many times I would try to export it, or go back into the app, or shut my phone off, it just would take days to export. And now, as I’m trying to use the app, I can’t even get passed from cropping the video. It’s doing the same thing, after I’ve picked a video I want to edit, and cropped it to the size I want, it loads like it’s going to let me continue, and then it doesn’t. And I’ve exited out of the app and tried again, and I’ve shut down my phone multiple times thinking it needs a refresh, but I can’t get passed from cropping the video.
I’m not sure why it’s doing that and it’s getting really annoying. The app is really cool and I really enjoy it since I’m a video editor, but I’m thinking about just deleting it and finding a different app because I don’t want to keep wasting my time on a incorporative app.
Please fix this issue!
i wish you would get rid of this
everything about this app is AMAZING and i’m so happy that you offer users who want to use the limited version so many filters and effects for free, but the only thing that ruins it is the fact that you have to deal with a big watermark on your photo/video when you want to share it. the only way that i can get rid of the watermark is if i pay $5/WEEK and that’s to use everything in the app, there’s no option to just get rid of the watermark. i really wish that for the free version that you could get rid of the watermark because users are so excited once they’re done editing their photo/video and then a big watermark appears that you can’t get rid of. i’m completely fine with the fact that you don’t have access to all do the effects and filters unless you pay, but for me the watermark in the limited version makes this app so useless and not fun to use. i don’t have to money to be spending $5/week on an app i won’t use every single day. please understand and take the forced watermark away..
I REALLY LOVE THIS APP,BUT...
I really loved a lot of the free filters & effects & how you can customize each filter! I love everything about this app, however, I think that paying $5/week to unlock all the other filters & editing features are a bit too pricey, especially if you’re paying WEEKLY! Even though I really do like this app & I know that I will be using this app a lot, I don’t think it’s necessary to pay a weekly subscription for that kind of price for all those filters. Also, for some strange reason, everytime I go onto the app, after each minute my screen dims & gets darker & darker & it’s very hard to see how I’m editing my photos & videos! My brightness is turned up all the way & the app still causes my screen to dim & I have get out of the app & wait for the brightness to turn up again. Please add a monthly subscription for those who want use all of the features but don’t want to pay high price for them & please fix this bug!
Great Application, Worst subscription system
UPDATE: The watermark has been removed for free users!!!!!! Amazinnnng!!! Thank you Developers.
I don’t write that many reviews and much less bad reviews, although this app has some amazing and unique effects you may not find anywhere else, i have to point out to a really turn down fact which is your subscription system, paying weekly with as high price point is probably the worst I’ve came across yet, even if it’s something still affordable but it is absurd to pay such amount weekly for an app that you use once a week. We want to have the feeling of paying for something and not thinking about it much like one time purchases or at least make it monthly and reduce the price point. Anyway if you don’t mind the big water mark than you're fine with the free versions
My favorite app of all time?
I’ve been using this app and loving every minute of it. So much capability. User friendly. Spectacular outcomes. Super fun to use. Even the free version gives you a lot of innovative and fresh filters, music and so much more for video and stills. I love the simplicity and elegance. With the integration of music too! My own library and the app has a library too. You have the option of dragging to select the few seconds of music of your choice. I don’t have any music capability on IG but...now I do. The power to produce content like PREQUEL affords is priceless in this “look at me” marketplace. If you’re an original content creator and/or you’re curating, repurposing, re-anything? Your now have an addictively classy tool to monetize you. Or make impressive memories for your clients, friends and family.
It’s my favorite app. Ever.
$5 a week to get rid of watermark
Ok, I’ve paid for editing apps before, and I would probably have paid a couple of dollars to get the whole package from this app. But $5/week is just ridiculous. The free version looked pretty cool, until I saved the photo I had edited and they placed a big, ugly logo on the front and told me I couldn’t get rid of it without paying for the full app. For $5/week. That’s just lunacy. This isn’t worth it. There are lots of fun editing apps out there, don’t waste your time with this one. This one will run you $20/month, ~$240/year, that’s honestly ridiculous for an app. Maybe if this was actually a full version of photoshop. But photoshop has an app that’s better than this one, and it doesn’t charge you $5/week. The video effects are cool, but nothing is worth anything with the big ugly watermark on every pic or vid you save. If they got rid of that, I would use the free version, but there’s very little that could persuade me to spend $5/week on an editing app. What are the developers thinking?!
Please fix how often the app crashes.
By Captain Odd
It has super cute filters and effects and everything but I find myself using it less and less because it usually crashes like 11 times before it actually wants to work. Doesn’t even make it past the start-up/loading screen because it doesn’t want to start loading; there’d be a frozen grey screen with the app logo for like a minute before it crashes. I would give this more stars for the filters alone but at this point I don’t even think the filters are worth dealing with trying to get the app to work in the first place. I’ve never dealt with an app that crashes more than this one, or even came close lol
I really like the filters so I used to stick it out and would try to reopen it every time it crashed until it finally worked but I’m getting sick of it. I kept the app in my phone for almost a year already waiting for an update to fix the crashes (I get my hopes up when I read “minor bug fixes”) but it never came so I think I’m gonna delete the app. Please fix the issue. The app feels like it only works well when it wants to. None of the other apps in my phone crash either so I know my phone is not the problem.
Performance when the app wants to work: 5/5
Performance the rest of the time: 0/5
Would have given a 1/5 but the filters salvaged it a little.
Doesn’t open anymore?
I remember when this app used to have 5+ subscriptions in order to have a quality app experience but this was essentially based off trial and error due to the company wanting to learn what users enjoy. So with that being said I’m not gonna sit here and complain about it being pay to play cause it’s still in development last I saw. However I have other worries about this app and it’s growth.
Now I have iOS device. It’s the iPhone 6s and I’ve been editing for a while now wether it be transitions, effects, or even motion tracking.
So off the top of my head I figured this app would work pretty good it’s only been a year since I last tried it and my phone is perfectly fine as far as running apps etc.
I downloaded it this morning to give it another go and was greeted by a logo that doesn’t go away. The app opens perfectly fine but once the logo appears, that’s it.
Tried restarting the app, nothing. Tried restarting my phone, nothing. Tried using a different device, nothing.
So essentially the app is looking at the company’s logo now. I don’t see this being fixed anytime soon either due to developers only responding to suggestive ideas so with that being said I encourage you to not download this until it’s next update.
Currently this app is broken.
Dope app, ridiculous price point
After being forced to sign up for a trial, with the full intent of canceling it after checking out the contents, I must say the filters are pretty dope. Very unique filters and effects that would definitely make your photos way more interesting. However, take off a star because of their pricing. There is no way on earth I’m spending 20 dollars a MONTH on this app. The developers should try their hand at comedy because they’re funny af for that absurd price. As much as I’d love to add a Polaroid frame with some text or a mirror effect to my pic, I’ll stick with the plethora of apps that are either free or a small fraction of the price than what these developers are asking for Prequel. Next!
