Ratings and Reviews
Total Ripoff! Outdated! Check dates of positive reviews
What a sham! I feel as though I've been robbed. This "field guide" is poorly designed and doesn't even include Final Cut Pro X! I will never trust another recommendation from Zach King.
Notice the dates of the positive reviews. They are from 2-3 years ago. I've learned my lesson-check those reviews thoroughly before purchasing! Learn from my mistake!
Doesn't work with iOS 9
Don't buy this if you are using the latest iOS. It would have been nice to use as I still edit with FCP6 and occasionally need to look something up. For the people who thought it was an editor, you're just stupid. Read the description! It's a guide! PLEASE UPDATE!!!
Doesn't include Final Cut Pro X
I just wasted my money, this app is all about FCP, it doesn't have anything in it about FCP X. Hopefully this app will be updated to include FCP X, if so I'll bump my rating to 5 stars.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
