The magic seems extremely real, exactly as shown in the videos. There were no bugs either. But you only get 2 scenes for free, which are in my opinion the worst ones, and the other ones cost $1 each and that is EXTREMELY expensive just for 1 scene. The second thing I found bad was that it has a logo and on every video and I couldn't get rid of it. My daughter realized it's fake right away. Get this app if you are willing to pay a $1 every scene and have a logo printed on your videos to make it (unreal).


Loyalty lost

We have been a loyal Santa spycam family since the app first came out. Our kids loved it so much and we were patient with the developer as they worked through bugs in the app. The first couple of years it seem to be improving and they made things fun on their Facebook page. This year, in addition to forcing you to re-purchase things you had already bought, everything about the app looks and operates like a Chinese knockoff. We are very disappointed that it seems to have gone backwards. Maybe the first owners sold it off to someone who doesn't know what they're doing?


Don't purchase! You'll have to rebuy it next year

I think it's a shame that developers expect us to re-purchase what we have already purchased in the previous years! I should not have to give you money every single year to use an app that I have already purchased! Someone needs to fix this this is ridiculous I used to always use this app and I will no longer be using this anymore! Save your money folks!
