pretty good but
kalonseok on 2020-04-09
the main reason i want this app is to add the vhs effect to edits i make that i prepare on my phone but everytime i go to import a video from my phone, i click on the video i wanna do and the app instantly closes. i think it could be because i have a very large amount of videos saved on my phone and the app can’t handle it and load them all but it’s incredibly frustrating how the app will just close and won’t even do it :( i just paid $3.99 for this app which may not seem like a lot but that is for me and now the one thing i want from this app, it won’t even do it i really hope i can get this to work somehow someday soon
Review on this app:
-Savhanna on 2020-04-09
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS APP! I use it everyday/whenever I get a chance. I’m so happy with my purchase and will/would NOT ever regret my purchase. This app is great for photography, people who just love taking photos, people who might like old looking things and just honestly overall anyone. Never ever will I go back to any other camera app. Thanks to the people who made this app! You really changed my life. I would 10/10 recommend getting this and purchasing the extra $3.99. If you’re reading this and debating on getting this just do it! You won’t regret it I promise!!!!!
Some bug fixes need to be made

I adore this app and it’s nearly perfected the VHS style, but some of my videos look worse than the ones my grandparents made in the late 80’s. when trying to video things from afar, the filters can’t capture all of the figure so they stretch colors out making the person look all pixel-like. Also, some things even up close are so blurry it ruins the aesthetic. I suggest adding a 2000’s VHS filter that doesn’t mesh the colors and blur to the point where you can’t identity a person or a thing in the video. It’s way too grainy even with a different filter on.
Time limit??
Chuck LaWayne on 2020-04-09
I’m absolutely satisfied with everything about this app. My only question is about the time limit. I shot for about 20 minutes last night within the app and the video never showed up once I finished. I converted an older video that was the same length but the quality wasn’t dirty enough after conversion. Am I doing something wrong??
Hey read mine:)

They really went the extra mile

The depths they went to create this is amazing. I really go to a place of nostalgia of my home videos from the 90s using this app. The color profiles and the distortion of tape camcorders is so accurate. Also it’s definitely worth spending the few extra dollars to buy it for the extra options but both are amazing.
One problem
ilyhkka on 2020-04-09
This app is really good and I bought it to create my edits, but I’m having an issue. I imported cropped videos(making the shape square instead of as big as my screen) but when I import them, they become full screen again, as if I never cropped them. Is there a way I can get rid of this?
Brando E on 2020-04-09
I’ve had this app for a while and I have always loved it, it does a GREAT job at that VHS feel and there are always GREAT updates and the most recent one I loved the most cause it lets you do other camcorders!! five stars for sure!
It’s a cool app!
Mocha.bby on 2020-04-09
Hey don’t get me wrong. It could get 5 stars it’s just....some of the controls are complicated and it’s kinda hard to understand how to do things on it sometimes. But I’m learning. Or maybe I’m just dumb. Who knows
Excellent filters but crashes way too often especially for a paid app
Yes420 on 2020-04-09
Really wanna emphasize just how authentic all of the vhs filters are/how wide a variety of them the paid version gives you but wow sometimes this app can take over an hour to open without crashing
