This app used to be amazing, with tons of amazing photo and video edits and options to choose from. But it's been months and the company never fixed the bug where it won't even open videos or photos to edit. In addition it's super slow and I barely remember it existed in my phone after a while. It's just a space filler at this point. If they fix everything, I will not hesitate giving this app 5 stars, cause it had so much potential

I LOVED Prequel. The filters were so much fun to experiment with and try!! However, after a couple of weeks, it stopped working. Every time I try to import a video, it never does. It just says 100% and has the thinking symbol moving round and round and round, it never stops. I've left my phone on its own for an hour just to see if it would import, but no, it didn't. It's a shame I have to give this app one star, but how can I possibly give anything above when it doesn't even open up? Thank you

Hi! Sadly, we have noticed a bug. We have just begun investigating it as it is quite hard to understand anything from reviews only. We would like to know more about it from your perspective as well. Tap Help Center > "Could not find a reply. Contact us"> and send us the message. Thank you!

I usually edit my own pics in photoshop, for the most creative freedom, but Prequel gives me a pretty solid starting point & inspiration. Save me a bunch of time! EDIT: After an update a few months ago, the app now regularly crashes, takes too long to apply filters, and often fails to apply edits altogether. I don't know what changed in the backend, but something definitely got screwed. I think it's time to move on to a new app!
