Ratings and Reviews
Create beautiful movies
Best movie editor
This is a really good movie editor. If it improves further it will be the best movie editor. There should be more themes and regular updates with more new music selections. These two main features did not have any updates since the launch of the app. I would be happy to pay for pro version if there are regular updates and improvements.
AirDrop to iPad
Most of the time the photos and video will not in sequence in my iPad photos and video folder after airdrop. This make it so inconvenient making the video. We have to search for the series photos/videos.
The slow motion video should be allowed to edit the full feature in the iPad.
Last but not least the iPad response is getting very slow when editing or making new video. Please fix this many thinks.
