Who actually thinks this app is good?

I don’t know which crackheads here are giving this app 5 stars, but I truly think you need to look yourself in the mirror and reevaluate your life choices. I thought this app would be simple enough to use. You can change the speed of the gif, add text, spice it up a little. That’s where I encountered a problem. When I added text, the speed of the app slowed down to about .2 frames per second. I sat their in awe at the sheer inability of this app to process the act of moving the text to another area of the photo. So I was patient. I waited for it to move. The text decided it was time to grow and take up 1/3 of the photo. Not really what I wanted, but I’ll take it. I go to save the gif and I’m presented with an ad. I waited for it to end and THE GIF DIDN’T EVEN SAVE. YOU MONEY GRUBBING PIECES OF FILTH NEED TO GIVE ME MY GIF IF YOU’RE GOING TO MAKE ME SIT THROUGH THE AD. Honestly after all this, I’m appalled. I don’t think I can trust anyone after this because the 5 star reviews did not reflect the experience that I had with this app. That is why I’m giving it 1 star.

Few missing features, Compression seems inefficient

I really like this app overall—it has lots of features and allows conversion from and from numerous formats. The user interface is also really good. Now, I'll list concerns/missing features in order of importance:

1. One additional feature that I would really appreciate is the ability to set the output specs of the GIF during the save process, for example: resolution, frame rate (I realize this can be set globally, but I would very much prefer to be able to manipulate it during the output process), index palette (number of colors, perceptual, adaptive, custom, web, etc—similar to the GIF options in Adob Animate), and dithering (error diffusion, noise, halftone, none—again, similar to Adob Animate).

2. Output GIF compression seems off (possibly due to background choices being made in '1.' above). When comparing the output file size to GIFs generated with other tools, it seems really large on high or medium quality (and there is a huge and noticeable drop-off on low).

3. It would also be nice to be able to adjust things like sharpness/noise, contrast, brightness, saturation/vibrance, shadows/highlights, tint/temp,

4. Frame-by-frame GIF editing, ideally as layers similar to using GIMP.

Thanks again for a great app, and I hope to see continued development.

Hello. Thank you for using the ImgPlay and we appreciate your detailed feedback. Haver you ever tried our updated version(newer than v5.0, currently v5.0.3)? Please check our comment as following:
1. In the updated version, you can change frame rate and index palette. We will consider to add other output spec too in the future.
2. We improved our GIF compression on the updated version. Also, next version, you will be able to save the file in the desired size. We will keep improving the compression.
3. In the updated version, you can adjust the effect such as brightness, contrast, saturation, warmth and sharpen!
4. In the updated version, you can delect the frame or reorder the frame. But we do not support the layer feature yet. We will check if we can add this feature in the future.
Thank you so much for your feedback 👍

Amazing ❤️

Absolutely love it. I’ve been wanting to make a gif for my favorite mobile game, Celtic Heroes, but I couldn’t do that without showing the hotbar, healthbar, and the minimap. So I was specifically looking for an app that had good reviews and I could zoom in with. The other apps I tried/looked at had neither. I thought that this app didn’t have that feature, so I’m SO happy with this app! Now I have some really awesome gifs of my Celtic Hero on her black steed with her white wolf beside her while a dragon glides behind! Plus, I could add a beautiful text with my toon’s name. Love it! ❤️
Only thing I’d suggest is making the trimming more accurate. I’d trim it at first and find it just a little off when I went to crop it. But that’s not too big of a deal.
Wonderful app, love it, download it, have some fun with it! 👍

Hello, thank you for your support and awesome review!
We will consider the trimming feature to more accurate later. 😘
