I was searching online for a way to play a video as an infinite loop on the iPad. This was a Friday afternoon and I needed it for a surprise 75th birthday party for my husband on Sunday. I finally came upon a conversation in which Lucas Jordan (founder of ClayWare Games) described the VLoop app he had created for that purpose.
I downloaded VLoop and within ten minutes at most was able to have my video loop repeatedly. I ran into trouble when the sound did not come through and I emailed Lucas. He responded within an hour (!) with an answer that set me on the right track and I very quickly had both visual and sound.
The party was a great success and the looping video was a hit.
On another note, although the app itself is free, I had to bring the video into VLoop from Dropbox, which cost $1.99 (There is no cost if you work through iTunes.) Some people see this additional cost as a negative, and it might indeed be an issue if one had many videos in Dropbox and had to pay for each one brought into VLoop, but for me in my predicament, VLoop was a lifesaver at a price below the cost of a large cup of coffee at Starbucks.
It might be a good idea, though, to indicate in the Details that there is an additional cost when importing a video from Dropbox.
Great app terrible business model.
Getting video on to the app was not intuitive. The only option that worked for me at first seemed to be Dropbox. No problem, the app was free, I don't mind throwing a couple of bucks the developer's way to add that functionality. Instead, I got an offer to pay two bucks to download ONE video. I found similar one time charges for other functions as well. I did follow the very helpful tutorial and was able to download the video via iTunes for free. After that it did exactly what I needed. Like I said, the app itself works great but the nickel and dime for every feature each time you want to use it is ridiculous. So, instead of getting some of my money, they got none.
I do hope you're going to listen to your customers when practically all of them are telling you to change your pricing structure. It's pretty lousy business practice to entice someone into a free app only to force them to purchase something inside of it just to be able to use the app at all. Giving limited functionality for free is one thing - but I just downloaded this app and all I could play was some advertisement. Sure, I could,load my video into the player, but it won't play it.
FYI, I'd be happy to pay a buck or two for full features, but I am so disgusted with your deception, that you have lost a potential customer. Hopefully you'll respond to the market.
