Ratings and Reviews
Really, really, really broken
How anyone thought this was 5 star material is insane. Half the time the videos don’t even upload, making me record the video for the 8th time before maybe, possibly, it could upload. There’s practically nothing explained, and I feel like I’m missing out on multiple features. Also, the time limit. Why in the world do you have a time limit? It limits what someone can say most of the time. At this point just recording a standard video on your phone is better. I really don’t know why anyone would try to defend it, nothing about it is redeemable in the slightest. If it can’t even be used properly, I don’t think that it should stay on the App Store until it’s fixed. Also, why even have a website if you can’t even record the video on it? It shouldn’t exist either, if it serves no purpose. Also (this isn’t the app) this would be a fantastic place to complain about it. On a review for the app.
Stop complaining and hating
If you are a student and feel uncomfortable doing videos and seeing yourself with your classmates, talk to your teacher. This is not the site or space to do that. On the other hand, would you rather do a face to face presentation, standing in front of the class? The reality is, you will sometime in your future or career be required to speak publicly, there’s no getting away from this. So, a video recording allows you to rehearse, re-do, until you master it. FaceTime, Skype, Marco Polo, etc. Even interviewing or attending conferences will require videos... it’s a rock in the middle of the road you can’t get over or get across. This technology, is your generation and your doing. Reap what you sown.
A few bazilion problems i no like
Okay, so everybody sends a review because they no like something. Why are we NOT aloud to take down our own videos? Why are we NOT aloud to unlike something? Why are we NOT aloud to see who liked our videos and viewed them? i dont like that there is a time limit either. Also, I doubt that schools AND/OR parents will get you a new phone or something every 2 years just for this one bad app. What are the stars for? In the corner of some vids? I wish you guys had a tutorial or something.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
