Comments and Reviews from users:

Patrick Doucette: “sometimes when i click on a notification, it goes to my timeline. please fix this. and sometimes the reels and videos either take forever to load, or won't play at all. please fix this too. I'm not getting any notifications, even tho they're on in my settings. very concerning. my chats are having trouble loading. keep the sound off until i turn it on 😡😡.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Catherine Simone: “Cuts off photos I aligned after posting. For example, I select a photo from my gallery to post with the elongated scale option (not the regular square), and it cuts off a few inches from the top of the photo. I had a photo of a sword that I posted in the rectangular frame so you could see the whole thing, and what does Instagram do? Post a photo without the tip of the sword showing. Useless.” – 2/5 in Play Store

sabrina: “it has small little glitches here and there, (audio, text, and video lagging). but other than that capcut is very useful when it comes to editing movie clips or making your own business ads. there are many options but its still "new user friendly". the template option is really good for when you're lazy and it gives you the ability to recreate some trends on tt or yt. its way easier to navigate than other editing programs, give it a try. 😻” – 5/5 in Play Store

Phoenix Williams: “Updated my review to four stars because I really like cap cut. It's one of the best mobile editing apps, even the free version. A few years ago it was a lot more glitchy but has improved overall. I just wish the feature where if you tap anywhere near the play button, it will do a huge time skip. It is highly annoying and I wish there was a way to turn this off because it is time-consuming to have to keep seeking through the track to figure out where you were originally.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Danvy N: “I've used InShot for 3 videos so far, all approximately 5-7 minutes long. It's been really user-friendly and makes editing videos very easy. However, I have noticed that the app has been lagging quite a bit recently. When replaying the video, the footage seems to lag seconds at a time, while the music continues smoothly. I thought maybe the video file was too big, and force stopping the app would help, or clear cache but it didn't. I submitted an enquiry a few weeks ago with no reply.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Becky Hebert: “I have been using this app for over 3 years. The simple but powerful interface, stability, and features available even in the free module, provides everything a beginner to intermediate user needs. I can't afford the paid version, but it is affordable to most. I haven't been able to add templates though. Thank you to your developers. Great work! 😁” – 5/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Death Skull: “YouCut has been my main video editing platform for years. Every update adds more and more great features. The simple UI, and the simple style allow for quick easy videos. In my experience, I could even easily make long form content. Some visual effects, or sfx are locked behind a premium version. However, the minimal amount of ads (only after youre done editing) make this fine in my opinion. On occasion, these locked features can be used after watching an ad. Plus, no watermark.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Alexey: “The app is great. I tried different ones and this one is the easiest to work on. However, I wish it could do something else. It needs a feature where I can zoom in into a certain frame (e.g. 1:1, 9:16, 16:19 and so on) and be able to move video inside of the frame. For example, I have a static video of a moving object (car, person etc) and I want to make another video zoomed in to follow that object. Or I need a vertical out of a horizontal video and move picture from the left to the right.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Robert Stewart: “2024 For years this has been my go to app. The clean and fluid editing tools have been nothing short of perfect. All of a sudden, in 2024, NOTHING wants to work right. I'm getting locked up, if I split and rotate a clip, the entire video rotates.I could go on and on about how disappointed I am with what I've been seeing. 2020: 5 STARS Can't say enough about this app. It's basic but it is so affective. *I'm editing this response to add this my my 4th anniversary using this app.” – 2/5 in Play Store

GuyWire: “Honestly, with all the amazing features and tools available, the most simple feature I must have is the ability to change order of clips. It is so slow crawling from end to beginning, and hopefully you have skinny fingers that don't hit other things by mistake. Add this on top of the obvious latency/lag just makes it a fun tool, but not one for consistent use.” – 3/5 in Play Store

I couldn't believe how many apps didn't have this necessary feature, and Video Maker is now my go-to since I can grab files from Dropbox as easily as any of the "expected" places that other apps didn't allow you to search past. Everything else is easy to use and functions as expected with a very easy learning curve. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is the inclusion of AI features.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Another thing is a lot of times the editing part takes too long like 4-7 hours IDK why .

Mary R: “So far, I like the pro version of this app very much. It has many options. The notifications when enabled show features that I may not have used. I have a dog channel on YouTube & like the new pet transitions. I'd love some stickers, gifs, and transitions featuring chihuahuas. I use an S24 Ultra samsung & have no issues with short content. Long form is harder on all phones, but it is workable when you want to upload it in the field. More options than native YouTube creator app.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Steven Lee: “I've had this app for a while. Once I'm nearly done, I'd like to go back and extend the 1st video/picture or shorten the last video/picture. I can not freely adjust the videos/pictures that are in the middle, except shorten. I have to go all the way back into my phone to carefully cut out the video/picture again.

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “Triller is a great app I loved it when I first downloaded it because when using your own music you can record for longer than 30 seconds but now they changed that option and everything is 30 seconds which is very upsetting especially when I do dance videos. I mean they could of done up to 2 minutes instead of 30 seconds. That's why I gave it three stars instead of five because now I have no use for the app.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Serena Squadrito: “Great app! But it's small things. I like this app a lot and I truly think that if tiktok goes under, this would be the new sub, but there are some flaws. I am unable to control the length of my video clips, or have a wide range of filters. For Example: I take a quick vid, and I press the button to record, but I cannot stop the video in between the middle of the song or whenever I like. And i do think there are just a little to much things in the way of the videos when you scroll.” – 3/5 in Play Store

I've had this app only two days and will delete it after the reel I started is finished. If the subscription was $20 per month rather than $20 per week it might be worth it. But the stories aren't that good and the acting is borderline bad.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Anthony Trimble: “One of the drama series, seemed like you got a good amount of view time before all the adds start kicking in to continue. However, with viewing the ads to rewards, I think there is something wrong with receiving your reward tokens(coins), this doesn't happen all the time but frequently enough lately that I am not receiving the credit for watching the ads and having to watch them several times on the same reward tab, if I get it to clear at all and get the credit.

Angelo Lardomita: “Overall, this is a really cool app. But this glitch is genuinely making it a hassel to use. You'll be interacting with a tab, whether it's music, an overlay, or an effect...and sometimes when you trim it, move it, or even try to tap on it normally, instead of locking onto the object and showing you where it is in the video...it will send you to the beginning of the video, and force you to scroll all the way back to edit it. This wasn't an issue before, and it's been really annoying as of late.” – 3/5 in Play Store

For example, it is very difficult to delete text without accidentally tapping on a picture behind the text. It would be easier to delete text by dragging it to the bottom (to a trash icon).

And I was able to create some eye-catching stuff; the only drawbacks would be, There are some bugs with some of the templates and I feel like 10 seconds worth of video clips is not very long period I understand it's difficult to render all of these things period but it's also difficult to Is edit individual ten second clips together.

Justan Gamble: “Was a great a video editor the past few years and then suddenly with one of the recent updates, it stopped being usable with Samsung Dex. I can't work the timeline anymore which makes it practically impossible to use the way I'm used to. The touchscreen still works in regular mode but I like being able to plug my device to my PC and being able to edit videos rapidly, which now I can no longer do. Not to mention certain free features being behind a paywall now. Nice while it lasted.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Mystic Matt: “This app has great potential to be a 5 Star if only the program didn't glitch and turn video sections black with only the audio being heard on playback. Certain segments in the video you're creating while editing turn black and you can only hear the audio on playback which is annoying when you've spent so much time and effort into creating a great video only to see later random black screens. It's like the app randomly crashes the video segments that you split, crossfaded, text added to etc.” – 3/5 in Play Store

City Chic Gems by Deena Chalon': “It's pretty cool so far, however, I'm on an Android and trying to use certain features to edit my creations such as the "swipe up" feature and duration options for photos/videos. Etc. It mentions there's an edit button to do these things and more in the Help , however, theres no EDIT button or option. Please help asap. I'm paying for PRO” – 4/5 in Play Store

Exotic Seduction: “..yearly subscription cost is too high, especially since every app is now doing subscriptions. all of the subscriptions start to add up. you should at least have it to where we can buy the templates that we like orrrr..have a one time buy option. And please can you add text animation, and some effects for example glitch, but, overall this app easy to learn, quick and is pretty good. Thanks” – 4/5 in Play Store
