Ratings and Reviews
This app is just what I have been looking for. It is perfect for me, as I am a budding filmmaker, working primarily on my phone. This app is quite a good one. But I would suggest only two things: the ability to create animated text in landscape a portrait mode, not just square (because right now I have to put the text in front of a green background and use a green screen effect to place the text where I want it). And the ability to export in 1080p. Because when I see the text in the panel that lets me edit the color patterns, it looks crisp and it plays smoothly. But when I export it, none of the edges are straight because they're all jagged, due to pixel exposure. This gives sort of an unprofessional look and feel to what could be one of my favorite apps. Just please fix those things and I'm sure it will make for a better experience for all users. Thank you! :)
I like the animated text options. But would like to see white as a background option for uploaded photos and videos, with color options for the text. The filters offered aren't too good for that. Also, I don't see a way to upload gifs and add the animated texts to them. It only saves the animated text, but the original gif is killed. So, to add the animated text to a gif, I have to use another app to change it to mp4. Then add the text in Legend. Then take it back to the other app, and convert it to gif. That's too much trouble. Gifs are very popular and would be cool if adding the animated text to them in Legend would not kill the original gif. Also, keeping the original aspect ratio and resolution size would be a great option to nothing but square.
The help email address in the App Store write up does not work. Gmail says there is no such address.
Nice!, But... (please read)
Don't get me wrong, this is an amazing app, but sometimes when the text is about 2 sentences long, I would really appreciate it if it was possible for the user the determine the duration of the video/gif. This will prevent the slow readers from having the watch the same thing 3 times in order to complete the message.
And something that would also be lovely, yet not as essential as mentioned above, is if the user also had access to change the size and position of the text being displayed. Sometimes there is a visually pleasing image, and it feels like such a waste when it has to be covered up by fat text...
It would be nice if this review could be considered x
