Ratings and Reviews
4K broken on iOS 11.2
Set to 4K on iPhone 8 Plus shows a kaleidoscope instead of normal camera vision
Great app but needs to be better
This would be a fantastic app but the only problem I am finding with it is that it is extremely slow on an iPhone 4. There is a lot of lag when shooting a video an even when watching it. Maybe make it compatible with the iPhone 4 better would be a plus! Besides that it is a really creative and awesome app!
Can't fault it
Does exactly what it says, and does it well. Wish the iOS had a landscape-default option, would have saved me from a lot of videos now permanently stuck in portrait mode.
