    "The Magisto video editor is awesome! I had never used a video editor before but our regular editor was out for a few weeks last month unexpectedly. We had a deadline to meet for a client so I decided to try out Magisto to make the video for our meeting. It was as simple as using PowerPoint! Our client had no idea that the professional video they watched was made by an amateur video editor. I love it!"

    "This is a fun little app, but at the same time it's not what you're seeking. It won't make videos, it won't do anything other than record sun based ordeals and thus you're better off looking at another solution."

    "I've had no prior experience to this solution. I see that Reverse Movie FX is a great app, but it doesn't solve the problem. If wanting to make a movie, an app that makes reverse videos wouldn't be a good solution. An app that makes movies similar to something you would see on t.v. would be a better solution to the problem."

    "This app seems to have some serious stability issues - it works well when it DOES work, but it crashes quite a bit. I could see this being a real issue if you are a professional or semi-professional who is trying to work on something time-dependent - it might really waste your time and others' time. Not sure if I'd recommend this app in its current state - maybe wait for some patches."

    "The Stop Motion Studio app lets me add all kinds of effects to videos when making animations with my son and my nieces. I can do stop motion, make gifs, do titles, etc, and it is super easy to use! I am not at all a tech person, but I could get right into it. I do really wish for an android version though."
