Reputation alone. (Updated)

For many years Boinx has been a reputable company with outstanding products, attentive customer service and support. That alone makes this app well worth the investment. I have been using it now since day one, and can tell you it is really a great app. As you can see from their updates, they really do care about making an exquisite app.
The ability to use your iPad as the hub or main station of production, and your iphone or ipod as the camera is spectacular. This app is great for small productions and large. Allowing multiple camera angles by easily switching from one camera source to another. I have found some issues with wifi connections, which I believe has to do with the type of modem or router being used. (***Recent Update Has Resolved all Issues!*** OUTSTANDING!)
Over-all a great tool for expressing your creativity, either for entertainment purposes (just for fun) or full productions.

Nearly flawless execution for time-lapse

A friend recommended this and at first I wasn't sure I would use it. Then, I got to use it while my son and I built a massive LEGO project. It help document hours of work in a fun 30 second video.

Next up, we used the figures to create a short film. The innovative use of iPhone 4S camera using the separate (free) remote camera app sealed the deal for me.

The seamless integration makes you wonder how we ever did this before.

The only things I would change is to make more convenient access to the Focus/Exposure controls and more editing options. I wish you could call them up instantly without having to dive into the camera settings menu. This would make it easier to change focus within a scene. Manual focus would also add a high end touch.

I would like to merge or splice clips without having to do this in a separate app like iMovie for iPad.

Very good! But app could use a few additional features.

Very useful and functional! I hope there are some plans to expand its capabilities! I would be willing to pay extra! 1. Add ability to add frames from external sources...at least from photo Library! 2. Even better would be the ability to edit and manipulate frames, individual or selected groups using other apps. Then one could do things like add filtering affects or add caption overlays for example. (I know something like this is available in Mac version but I don't have one!)
