I downloaded when instagram had a button/link for it. It seemed like a cool idea to take a moment of a pre-existing video already taken, then loop a key part of it, at least that was the idea I assumed since it was linked from instagram. Unfortunately, this is not the case. The only way to loop is to take video at the given moment and you can't use pre-existing videos to post. This went from what I thought was an additional tool app for instagram like their layout app, to basically what now looks like a 2 sec loop ripoff of snapchat.
I like it it's fun. But i only downloaded it from a link on instagram thinking i could use it to edit a video i had already captured only to find out that i couldn't and i would have to capture the video again through this app. I like the idea of taking a few seconds from a pre existing video and editing it into this. Please add a feature where we can edit pre existing videos I would get a lot more use out of it if it had that feature
Cool App, But I Have an Idea Really great app, it's cool and original, but I really want you guys to enable a front-flash option so that when it's dark out or you don't have good lighting, you can still look good and have a crisper video. Another thing you should add is an option to choose how long you want your Boomerang video to last. Add those and I'll rate 5 stars!!
Cannot save the file, error This app isn't working on my lonovo vibe x 3.. tried making a lot of videos with friends and we all were so disappointed as it wasn't saving or uploading anything. Error occurred every single time. I reinstalled and emptied quite a bit of memory for it. Still it isn't working, please check this problem.
Can't Save I like the idea, but the app is frustrating in that there are no options or menus of any kind. Plus, when I tell it to save, it says it does, but those 'saved' videos never show up on my phone, so I effectively lose whatever video I shot. Very frustrating
Fun and innovative Bad News: The short length of video makes it hard to use with any free video editor app. If you were too make the length of the video optional and more compatible with video collage editors it would be 5 stars for me. GOOD NEWS: it works great with my Samsung s5
