    "THis is an app where i can do amazing video effects just on my phone like the Star Wars effects. Although FYI it only comes with one free Star Wars effect you have to purchase it. Am definitely recommending this to anyone who wants to add/put simple or quite complex effects for your videos/ "

    "I am a professional videographer and i can tell u that this is made for me and other videographers out there. I like that there is much more freedom here compared to iMovie but unfortunately it does not have a computer version yet. I admit i want to edit on a bigger screen but this is still worth it. "

    "Easy-to-use and create video clips but i wonder why Adobe cannot create a multitrack editor like the Kinomaster. Also i hope it continually updates the tools on this app although i believe the last update of this app was in June eh"
