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 I buy it? Yes!

This app is amazingly awesome! I have made numerous videos with it, and they just keep getting better, thanks to the app. Unlike other apps it gives you multiple FREE effects. It's easy and fun to use. No stress, no long waiting. The video downloads within 10 seconds to your camera roll. No glitches with the app on my phone, and no crashing. You should download the FREE app now! I recommend buying some of the other filters, to really improve your videos. But many great effects are already included for FREE. That's right FREE. Download, and enjoy!

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!
