    "If the app works then it solves problems I suppose. But after looking at this app and reading the reviews, I suspect there are better apps out there and this one with its price tag can just stay away from my phone. I need things that function."

    "If you absolutely must edit your videos on your iphone or ipad, Quik is one of the best apps I've used. But in general, I'd have to recommend against this route, as you just can't beat editing on the desktop. But the GoPro people know their stuff, and within limits this will do the job for you in a pinch."

    "Splice is so cool. I was keeping my grandchildren for the day, age 5 and 3. They are very active as I was taking their pictures and getting some videos of them helping with the animals on the farm. This was so easy to use. I was able to edit and make what I think were professionally looking videos. It also comes with music and funny sound effects. I made a couple videos of the kids being funny and they loved them. I give Splice a big thumbs up! "

    "This video editor app is absolutely the bomb - it's amazing how easy it was to make my quick little clips look professional. Why get a film degree when you can just use this app? It also has a lot of great marketing features in case you are making something for your business."
