Editors' Notes

Capture the best moments and share with friends.

Awesome app, huge potential but...


I found this app pre-installed on my IPhone X. It has so many possibilities from fun with friends through to a serious benefit for people wanting to produce more inclusive communications by using live titles. My only issue with the live titles is the restriction on its look. To make it more accessible it needs to have a block colour behind text option. There is currently only one and it’s red. Would be good if there were different colour options. The other issue with the block red text version is the font puts it all into uppercase. Apple could you look at a future update to allow a choice of fonts and block colour background options. This would really open the doors and use of this fun app for a more productive and inclusive purpose.

Not fully functional- disappointing


When I first saw this app I thought it was ideal. I wanted to use it to record short VBlog videos and use the live titles feature when I post on social media. Unfortunately the live titles are not very functional. I spend a lot of time re-recording the same blog video because the titles are often way off. I have occasions where they just stop completely tho the video is still recording or the timing is so far off on the screen the video is about 4-5+ seconds ahead of the titles. Even when they actually work I then have to spend a good chunk of time rewriting the titles as the wording is no where near what’s been said. This could be such a good practical app but it needs a lot of work. Feels very half baked by apple
