Great app

Love it! Amazing! Also, I am rating other Apple apps that you are not allowed to rate on here.

Apple News: Missing stories. I live in Southern Oregon, and I experienced a lot this summer and spring, but the stories are not on there. A horrible thunderstorm causing a flood on May 15, I have never seen anything like it! But it was not on there? In late June, a car got pulled over by police and had a bunch of boxes on top of it. I got to news to learn more, but it was not on there either??? Also, just 2 days ago, a fire erupted in Medford that was visible from near the mall. Please add those stories. Overall 4.99/5

Apple itself: 3.5/5 Big ups, but also a few downs. Some apps I really liked. I got to use them. They said that they needed to be updated by the creator, but I could still use them, I liked it, that is until iOS 10. It was ruined for me! Also, I got a lot of apps from a purchased section, but I CANNOT REVIEW THE, BECAUSE I “DO NOT OWN THEM.” That is the most frustrating thing, at least fix that. I try to review apps to give them suggestions, and point out bugs, but I can’t cause I “do not own them.” Well, I sort of DO own them if I got them from a purchased section. You also need a version chooser option. I got Baldi’s Basics for iOS, and the WORST UPDATE EVER came out today. They made it so it is not like the original! I want to change the version so I could use it and still be happy. It makes me disgusted even LOOKING at it.

It used to be good. but it needs to be updated!

I loved iMovie! I used it ever since it came out up until my iPhone 7 Plus all the videos I ever made was through iMovie on my phone it just works so good that I did not even use my computer everything seem to work fine but for some reason on my iPhone 7 Plus iMovie started glitching out crashing the app and it just would not work when you created a video half of the video titles would be black so when you’re playing the video and it goes to the next track it would just be a long black bar that you would have to edit again cut it and restart your phone just to see your change and then once you exported your video all the sound would be out of sync with the video even though it was all on one track and not added sound.
This became very aggravating and I deleted iMovie and then reinstalled it when I got my iPhone X is the same issue it’s not updated for iPhone X at all and all the bugs are still present from when I had my iPhone 7 Plus.
The only reason it got two stars is because are used to love it but now I cannot even make a simple slideshow with three or four pictures without it throwing black bars in on sinking the audio.
I have submitted many many different feedback request to the app support team the beta thing and just Apple in general and never got anything done so I figured I would leave a review
I’m not sure how the biggest company in the world can’t update their own app
