Amazing App

Nina (@shotsappfan)

I've always been a fan of 80s/90s movies, videos and pictures. This app is amazing. It's very unique and I love how fast it works. It doesn't freeze and the videos can be easily shared or sent to our contacts. Also The fact that we can upload videos from our camera roll is pretty cool, we can take any cute or fun video we have and make it a 80s/90s home video. You can also record while on selfie mode which is awesome and the front flash is a huge help for those nights we want to record ourselves having fun. This really is a great way to share and record any home video and make great memories. I totally recommend this app to everyone. Once again, Shots Mobile Inc creates another great app.

Btw.. I love having Camcorder as a filter on Shots App. Anyone reading this, go download Shots if you haven't.

Great! But unreliable saving after recording

Nita Ohoyo

First I DO want to say that I love this app! I was the person in my family, that even as a child, I loved to pop in the family video tapes and watch all the family videos. I later went to film school - though I've moved on in my life, my love of filming and photography has stayed with me. When I saw this app I got super excited, sought it out, and downloaded it immediately. So far I've had a lot of fun filming various things I'm doing, hanging with friends, and the cultural gathering they've been happening during this winter season.
However, the one thing I would like to see improved is the unreliability in saving the footage after filming it. It's generally a wild card as to whether I'll have the footage after I've pressed the button to stop recording. I'm filming things in the moment as they happen, so if it doesn't save after filming, that moment is gone forever.

Best App!


I have downloaded and use applications; great app; users feel like they were recorded in the 80 and 90 directly from their own phone. Users enjoy the great features when using the application: Upload your photos and videos from automatically add the date and filter. Enable Flash when in dark places while shooting video. Double tap to move the camera when you want to record; Just launch the application and record a video that never miss the precious moments. Especially the free app. Thanks to the developers.
