Create beautiful movies



THIS APP IS INCREDIBLE!!! It is a fun and easy app and I have been using it for ages and it does just what I want it to do. Especially because it is on an iPhone or any IOS. It gives you free sound effects and music. You can add audio, overlays, split screen and so much more. Some of you have been complaining how you can’t put more than 2 videos over each other. If you want to do that then save your 2 clips to your camera roll than create a new iMovie and add that video that you just created and add another clip other it. Repeat this method until your desire. The other good thing about this app is the fact that you don’t need any wifi. Not only can you create movies, but trailers, were there is a wide range of templates you can use. Also, if you are lucky iMovie may be already installed on your iPhone. I definitely recommend this app.

Don't use for anything more than light video editing.


I've been a user of this app for years. And when it's working, it's a great and easy to use video editing software, and it can even do some pretty complex stuff once you really get to understand it. However, I have recently been suffering from a problem where, when I'm doing heavier editing on iMovie (multiple audio clips, lots of cuts etc.) everything will go out of sync, and ultimately, ruin the video. This has particularly been a major problem with a project I've been tasked with for media, as it's done this many times and ruined it. Please try to fix it if possible but, for now, I'd say avoid this if you want to do more than light editing, or using the very fun trailer feature.
