This app brought cops to my house!!!

Not long ago our town council unfairly removed a 100 year old monument from the downtown area and in its place put up an ABOMINATION straight out of a Hellraiser movie. So yesterday afternoon I used this app on my iPad Pro and took that $30,000 eyesore out with a rocket-propelled grenade. Then for good measure I launched a bazooka attack on city hall.

Two cops came to my house after seeing the clips of it that I posted to Facebook. They said everyone at the station knew it was just a guy having fun but "in this day and the way things are, well..." They also said that en route here they got a call about "he's just unleashed a tyrannosaur on Morehead Street." We had a great conversation and they emphasized that I had done nothing repeat NOTHING wrong. They really did seem to have gotten a great chuckle out of it.

But if the rocket launcher got THAT kind of an official reaction, Lord knows what will happen when I call in that drone strike LOL!

Should you buy this?

Hey there! This rate is about Should we buy this app or app purchase. Before I tell you let’s tell you some things about this app. So first this app is a pretty good app! You can do a lot of very REAL looking effects but most are a lot of money, but it’s pretty affordable! Second it’s a pretty fast app, but some things are slow. I do like how they put things in categories because it makes it a little bit faster, all though it’s pretty slow on the horror category. Third and final! The effects are really good but expensive. I mean their affordable but a lot of money! I know people need money but it’s pretty bad. So now let’s see if you should buy the app or an in app purchase! The answer is: YES! You should definitely get a purchase but their expensive!

I love this app!

I was looking for some special effects to add to my videos. I work as an x-ray tech and recently made one about the skeletal system.I downloaded all the special-effects apps available for iPhone but this one is the best! They even have a dancing skeleton effect that is available for free :) This effect is really gonna make my video that much better! I love the app so much that I even downloaded a few more effects and was happy to see that it unlocked high resolution mode! 5 out of 5 stars for FXguru!
