Although Vinkle may seem like a good app for editors just starting out, it isn’t. Vinkle steals editors’ edits, and by this I mean that some people spend hours up to weeks making edits, being creative, putting time and effort into their edits, all for it to be stolen. How is it stolen? Well as I said people put creativity, thought, and time to make their edit special... the cool thing about editimg is that there won’t ever be two of the same edits (unless its a remake, in which that case people give credit)! Well Vinkle straight up copies the effects, transitions, and other things that make the edit special, then turns them into presets for anyone to just import photos into and use. Making an edit with this app takes about a minute (I’ve tried) at max,, and for an editors hard work just to be stolen is disappointing and honestly heart breaking. If you’re considering on downloading this app since you don’t really understand this whole point, DO NOT. Imagine if you put days on end working on a project (while balancing school/work and real life on top of that too), just for that whole thing to be stolen by a big company, which allows more people to steal your work without them even knowing. Of course you’d feel upset and angry, seeing your hard work just get taken like that. Please help us editors take down this app... we might seem like we’re overreacting but I promise that we are just doing the right thing.
It’s not real editing
As an editor myself using videostar, I know that a huge part of editing is the process. And with this there isn’t any work or a process involved in this app. It’s just generating a edit. If someone was a beginner, this app definitely wouldn’t teach them anything new about editing. Editing itself is something you work to do and get better at overtime. For this to just be a edit generator shows that to the maker of the app and those who use it only make edits to post or to show off. There’s no passion for editing if there’s nothing to work towards. And as a editor is a little infuriating that people spend so much of their time and energy trying to make something that means something to them when others can use a app and have it done for them. The whole concept comes across as lazy and makes it seems as though all editing is that simple when it isn’t. This app misguides those who use it. They may think that all programs are just a generator and that can ruin the credit given to those who actually spend time in their work. Overall, the concept of the app comes across as lazy, their is no improvement involved, and it makes it seem as though edits are only for posting when there’s a deeper meaning to all edits and a deep meaning that editors want to get across.
STEALING OTHER EDIT STYLES THAT TAKE HOURS! 😤
One thing that I’ve noticed about this app is that it takes edits from editors off Instagram with ANY CREDIT! Edits can take hours & days to make! The fact they this app takes them without 0 credit is sickening, I would hate seeing an edit style of mine get featured on this app that took HOURS! And it only takes you what, 1 minute? You just have to add pictures and wait for it to load which in my opinion is not fair, I’ve been using videostar all my life and one thing that has come to my attention, and based of personal experiences that edits TAKE LOTS OF TIME, the transitions can take forever to make, including the planning + overlays, AND COLORINGS! This app completely steals the whole style that the original editor might’ve spend 3-9 hours on using alight motion, videostar, after effects, whatever. Maybe could’ve even took days. I get that you guys are trying to make an app for starters, but it’s not going to teach them anything. If you’re a starter user that currently uses this app. Please delete it, funimate is definitely a more useful starter app, videostar too it just take tutorials. Maybe actually make it an editing app, kind of like adding keyframes, maybe some app made transitions. Anything is better than stealing other users edit styles. Thank you!

Hi ,I’m Tre I was apart of then big head brothers for along time. I MADE THIS APP and I made edits and I sent the edits to them and they re-edited them and use pictures of other people and replace them. I’m not apart off them no more Because they publish the app and I told them not to they started getting with other people and getting them to make edits and paying them to put there edits on there. Most of the people who put there edits on there, there not getting money no more and try saying that “they stole my edit”
And stuff like that and I understand they don’t even use my original Edit they re make it and it don’t even look good. All I can say is I emailed them call them and texted them and told them to delete this app GIVE THE PEOPLE THERE MONEY GIVE THE PEOPLE CREDIT AND STOP DOING THIS. But they ignored me, I told them they can get sued and lost money but all I can say is stop using the app, report the app, get the app delete off of the App Store and the Play Store so y’all can get what yall wanted the whole time I’m sorry but I would delete the app, but I can’t since the publish it I don’t have the power to do it it’s like they removed me from the app some how and I can’t delete it Im and the only the I can do and y’all can do is REPORT THE APP, GIVE THE APP BAD RATINGS , DO EVERYTHING TO GET THE APP DELETE.

I am one of the editors Vinkle has stolen from. It took me multiple days to complete that edit and I am really mad that they stole it like at least five credit to me pls. Vinkle isn’t a editing app either it just makes videos that people have already made. If you use Vinkle do not call yourself an editor. Vinkle steals edits and puts them in there app as one transition. Is editors who actually create our own content aren’t happy about this. In a video they posted they said we are saving time and effort for our users. Your users are using the edits that we made so copyright. I can and if necessary sue this app for copyright. I’m sure multiple other editors will to if pushed to far. Vinkle says they got a lawyer what are they going to do? Vinkle is the one stealing edits and we all have proof we even have accounts that prove they are stealing edits. Vinkle is just a copyright app and they are just looking for money. Do not download this app it is not editing it’s just making a video. If you think the transitions are cool then talk to the editors who made those edits because Vinkle did not. Pls do not download this app and rate it one star. This app needs to be taken down. They are also blocking people who are standing up to them. This is a terrible app pls do not download it and rate it one star.
THIS APP IS TERRIBLE
By alliyah diamond
First off this app straight up steals edits from editors who ACTUALLY take time and edit, while dinkle over here copies and steals their edits and makes templates so “editors” who use this app can easily make an edit within a 10-20 second range timeframe while us editors who actually spend hours and hours of time editing for some app like this to come and steal edits. Secondly this app is an ACTUAL WALKING COPYRIGHT!!! By the company saying that they don’t steal edits (Even though they do) and not giving credit is basically a pretty little word called plagiarism/copyright which you could get in a lot of trouble for not giving the original owner credits. And thirdly the developers behind this app are childish. They posted a post on ig (Instagram) responding to them being called out for stealing edits, and they made an “edit” and turned off their comments so no ONE could actually prove that they were lying about that. How immature- and it’s very unprofessional too not being able to admit something terrible that you did, and instead of owning up to the consequences, they avoided conflict and made this a terrible situation. PLEASE TAKE DOWN VINKLE FOR THE SAKE OF EDITING!!!! <3 :)
-they really need to invest in making a zero star option 😔
Please hear me out.
Vinkle is a fraud. I hope you all realize that they steal others work, and say that they are their own. This doesn’t even fall under the fair use doctrine of the U.S Copyright statute since it’s not using a limited portion of the original work (not sure if it’s the same/similar in other countries). They don’t even have the consent from the actual editor to use their edits. Most of the editors are unaware that their edits are being stolen. It’s not fair use whatsoever because they aren’t taking a small bit from the original piece and using it for commentary purposes, criticism, or any sort of report. The “templates” on vinkle are verbatim of the original work. If you support this app, knowing what it does to other people, then you truly are a sick being. That’s not just from me either, I’m assuming it’s also from the rest of the real editing community. So for the love of god, have mercy on the actual editors who get their hours of hard work stolen, and not use vinkle. Don’t support vinkle, because they are only after your money. It’s not worth it. If you want to edit, please use an actual software and learn like everyone else. If you need help, then ask for it. JUST DONT USE VINKLE.
I am an editor in the Instagram platform. Quick summary, if you don’t know what an editor is, it is a thing where people would make photo edits or video edits of their celebrity/idol. I use Video Star, a software where you can make the photo and or video edits. There are other apps like, After Effects, Cute Cut pro, Alight Motion, and other softwares. Vinkle has been stealing edits from other editors all over the Instagram platform. In the beginning, yes Vinkle was probably a good app. If you still don’t understand what I mean when they could be stealing, is that they are looking at people’s edits, that took most likely hours of their time, and turning people homemade transitions into their own. Vinkle is an app where you shove pictures of your choice and Vinkle makes the transitions for you. Vinkle is so inconsiderate. In the world of editing, if you use an editors thing that they have been using 1st or if you’re doing something that’s with them, you ALWAYS have to give them CREDIT!! Everyone in the editing world give credit to people! It’s the rule into becoming one. Vinkle is sure not doing that. I’m so sorry for this very long review, but this is what the editing life is and Vinkle is.
don’t get this
i don’t normally leave reviews... but this app has infuriated me to the point that i have to. i use adobe after effects to edit and it takes hours if not DAYS to make a seemingly quick and easy 15 second video that you can on this app. normally it wouldn’t be a problem if you could pick and choose the specific transitions and effects to make it unique and your own edit, but this is not the case. this app provides a literal template for an edit, and not just any edit, and edit THAT ALREADY EXISTS. yes an edit that already exist that took someone days to do in the little free time they have while balancing school, sports, a social life, etc. and they make it so you can make an exact copy of this edit in a minute flat. yes it may be easy, but it is very hurtful to video editors that use up their time to create those edits. this app is profiting off of instagram editors, and it is NOT okay. instagram editors need to get the recognition and credit they deserve. yes this app seems too good to be true because it’s so easy to use and makes cool videos, but please reconsider this and support your instagram editors in deleting this app or not getting it at all.
TAKE DOWN VINKLE
as an editor on instagram, i make edits using videostar. an app where you can create your own transitions, or use codes someone makes. this app has stolen many editors edits. many apps use after effects such as cute cut pro, alight motion and more. this app has stolen these. a bunch of editing accounts that make these codes have had their own after effects stolen. it’s not a good look for a bunch of editors coming at this app because their edit was stolen. this app needs to be taken down. and to be taking peoples edits, and using it to make money, what type of app is this? either this app gets taken down, or this app could start making their own after effects and edits. it’s not okay to steal people’s edits and after effects for such a popular app like this. and this company is soo disrespectful for it, this needs to stop. these editors aren’t getting credit for their amazing work they do. they aren’t getting paid for this. instead they are getting less attention because some famous app decided they want to use the edit and make it look like they created. when instead someone very talented did. i believe this app should be taken down.
