Almost exactly what I wanted

It’s very easy to grab a couple Live Photo’s and pop then in and press play. It looks great.

What I’d like is that it automatically makes each Live Photo flow into the next one as if it’s one single flowing video all perfectly lined up. In other words, there is no repeat or overlap from several photos taken in quick succession.

Since that may take time to implement I’d like the trim features to be more robust. First, when I’m trimming I should see a live preview as I slide the left and right bar. Second, I need to know how it’s going to flow into the next clip. I want to be able to line them up into a seamless video but I don’t know what exact point of the next video I need to line up with. I can go back and forth to each video and trial and error but it takes a while and can be frustrating.

If this feature can be accomplished I’d really enjoy this app. I love love photos and the thing I always wish I had was the ability to smash them together into a seamless video (for Live Photo’s take in quick or somewhat quick succession).

Developer Response ,

Hi there! I realize you left this review quite awhile ago, but I wanted to respond and let you know that seamless stitching of Live Photos is something I'm continuing to work on! I haven't quite gotten it completely figured out yet, but the next version of Snapthread (2.0) will be out in a couple days and it manages to cut out the overlapping sections about 50% of the time. I'll keep working on's one of the features I want most too! More robust trimming tools are also on my to-do list. Thanks for taking the time to leave a review! Best, Becky

Create a video with live photos and control sounds!

Great app, so easy to use, does everything I'd want, while keeping it simple enough where I can create something quickly! The best thing is that I can mute the sound from the photos and add my own music or use theirs. An awesome feature because I find myself saying the dumbest things while taking live photos, or they just have terrible snippets of my laugh... And I like how I can choose any number from each day, and order, and easily trim them individually. The perfect app.

Easy and very well done app

This is a concept that’s being tried in a few places but this is the best I’ve seen it so far.
The basic app is still great but after using it, I think you’ll want to upgrade to premium. I rarely do that but it’s inexpensive and well worth it.
This app is SUPER user friendly! Can’t say enough good things... go play and have fun:)
