A few tweaks needed!
[sarbear] on 7/14/2018
1 star more because there hasn’t been an update in 8 months than for the functionality of the app itself. That being said, I think there are still a couple changes this app needs made in order to make it as useful as I hoped of it. 1. The ability to edit and cut the length of the video (giving the whole thing to choose from, not just the stabilized portion) 2. Not sure how to word this exactly, but the ability to decide what the reference for stabilization should be, so that I could choose which part of the scene I intended to be still.
UI is atrocious

Who approved of this UI is one of the worst and coming from Google I expected more.

HDR live photos are showing up
SmarTunes on 6/23/2018
If you deleted an original live photo, you aren’t going to see its HDR version in this app. Pretty frustrating to find out such a basic bug.
Was great at first
Phin2728 on 6/12/2018
Suddenly stopped working and no more pictures will upload to the app.
Major bug
unknown??????unknown on 6/9/2018
It says to turn on access to photos, but in settings, I couldn’t find this app anywhere. Please fix.
Diminished functionality
run chris every day on 5/20/2018
It seems that the developer has removed the ability to work with videos taken outside the app. Deleted.
Customizable and features-filled
Grisser Bernard on 5/16/2018
I love the app. Use it constantly to post gif to twitter. The only thing that would make it even better is if it has file size target, so we can have biggest gif image resolution to maximum Twitter gif size limit.
ReallyannoyedbyApp on 4/20/2018
HATE THE LOGO. Great app. Stupid logo.
Works but format no compatible
TinTin858585 on 4/20/2018
Twitter does not like gif files generated by this app, so they can’t be posted there.
Big problem
Ex1948 on 4/15/2018
When someone sends me a picture via iMessage And I save the picture it appears invisible to the application. Where did it go ?
Bad bad app
DBLW on 4/2/2018
I can’t even create one video. It crashes everytime when I try the share video. Every.single.time!! Goodness, please fix it
Genius app
consumer 2016 on 4/1/2018
Love the functionality of playing with live photos and how cool it is to make a movie from them or export new live photos. I just really really wish there were two other things: -the ability to navigate my photo feed by selecting an album or even just choosing a point in time easier than having to scroll backwards forever. Or am I just missing it? -using the whole live photo!! Not just the part that is stable. I want the whole thing please for making new live photos! Thanks team you're the best and this is one of my favorite apps!
Crashes. Impossible to use.
Steplander on 3/28/2018
This app doesn’t work at all. Try to export a motion still video and it crashes within seconds. Never get to export or share a video. What’s the point? Come on... Fix this please.
App logo gets smeared over results!
Wingfam on 3/18/2018
Really Google? #fail
Good app
DannyDanimals on 3/9/2018
Bad watermark
iPhoneX crashing indefinitely after I installed this
Rohit bhat on 3/8/2018
I installed this app yesterday on my iPhoneX and my iPhone has been crashing ever since. It’s rebooting on its own and crashing on its own. The only way out now I see is to restore my iPhone. The app is great though. But not worth the hassle if it crashes your phone.
Watermark ruined an otherwise great app
Brad2daBone on 2/25/2018
Do not download
Wooooooooooooo1 on 2/18/2018
Not worth a try, this app is absolutely useless.
Not working anymore - iPhone X
toe knee on 2/8/2018
Can't access anything
Shortened GIFs
Rosalineto on 2/4/2018
SUDDENLY- OUT OF NOWHERE!!!! The app isn’t using the entire Live Photo! It only takes a small portion of the Live Photo for the gif but cuts out the rest! I’ve enjoyed this app for a long time, but it’s of no use to me if I can’t get a gif of the whole Live Photo!!! PLEASE PLEASE I’m begging please fix this!
Good app but no option to remove watermark
Rustygee610610 on 1/29/2018
Does everything nice and well built just doesn't even let me remove watermark! Not even a 99c payment. Frustrating
New Live Photo are over 1.5 seconds long
BRiSeries on 12/29/2017
It only capture and converts 1.5 second of the Live Photo instead iOS 11’s 3 seconds long Live Photo.
Just remove the watermark and it's perfect
bksd0 on 12/26/2017
Watermark option is buried in the camera menu but it is possible to remove.
I really love Live Photos for all devices.
Rsmart111 on 12/26/2017
I love the fact that Live Photos can be taken on my non 6S++ devices. Please keep updating this application with UI tweaks and features. A Flash would be appreciated. 😉
Simple and awesome
ReelDeal on 12/21/2017
Alright peeps, it's all okay. The watermark is a toggle that you can change in the app's settings, which you can access while in camera mode. Thanks Google for the great app!
PostUpLegend on 12/12/2017
Nobody wants the watermark. Just change that back and this app will be everything I want it to be.
Remove the hideous logo when sharing video
Krlostv on 12/1/2017
Why are you adding that water mark? Remove it and this app will be perfect
Ldmtwo on 11/13/2017
Why the f would we want "motion stills" on the photo or video rather than something useful, such as the date or location? Please don't upgrade any more. You (google) will probably f it up. Now the settings are hidden in a camera pane? We don't need this. Does this improve anything? And now I can't save videos
Please support trimming!
zoobidoobizoobidoobi on 11/3/2017
This is an awesome app that creates magically stabilised animations and text that moves with the objects in your live photo. However, not being able to trim off excess bits of animation makes this app much less useful than it could be.
App crashes with every use
Sue turkey on 11/2/2017
I’ve spent far too much time adding photos and captions only for it to crash when I try to export the photos or create a movie. App worked the first few times I used it and now crashes every time I try to create a project. I have deleted and re-downloaded the app and that did not help. Great concept but needs work.
Robroooooo on 10/23/2017
Great app but the watermark, really?
isoulde on 10/22/2017
Giant watermarked logo in the bottom right makes this app completely useless. I’m not sharing photos that have massive text on them
Hope it can support iPad Pro
zhangbillbill on 10/15/2017
Hope it can support iPad Pro
D! on 10/14/2017
Google has been doing good job on reducing shakiness of live pictures for better GIF creations but it looks like they added “Motion Still” logos at the bottom right corner did recent update which I don’t like.
Just ok
Kpeterk on 10/2/2017
I’m currently using the Android version of this app. There are so many things that are left out of the iOS version. It pulls all animation from Live Photo’s and you have no control over what you want to capture. For instance, you cannot take pictures from the app which is disappointing.
jruszas on 10/2/2017
This app crashes when I try to convert a live photo into a video
Ruined by watermark on 10/2/2017
Great app that they then ruined with a watermark that looks like something an elementary school photographer would add.
Krouset on 9/15/2017
How you use this app?? No help file or instructions
Neat Little App
I. Am. In. Love. on 9/8/2017
This is such a neat little app. It's a fun way to put your Live Photos to use. I would love to see some more editing features in app, like color changes. But overall it was very simple to use and understand.
Ability to remove photos gone
John benco on 9/5/2017
I used to be able for to erase picture by swiping left to get rid of photo I didn't want to see feature is now gone. How do I get that back?
clean, precise, simple! THANK YOU
iL0vē ît on 9/5/2017
I don't always give reviews, but when I do... it's because an app was actually BETTER than expected! Google nailed this simple and fun app.
No connection with Google photo
PVC-US on 8/26/2017
No connection with the backup solution of Google photo
Kellermeyer14 on 8/24/2017
A nice app except for the ability to trim clips and the stupid watermark. Really Google?
GreenPrell on 8/24/2017
I love this app. It's exactly what I was looking for and allows us to create a new form of art. Thank you, Google!
Great app for authoring motion stills
Cheerioboy25 on 8/24/2017
Only thing I wish for is a way to trim clips for better loops. 🍻
Good idea but doesn't work well
Gibbogirl5 on 8/9/2017
Only see a fraction of my Live Photos in this app. Also is difficult to navigate as there are only symbols and the icons don't explain well what their functions are. Would use this app if it were more user friendly and would actually access all my Live Photos.
It was cool but...
Whatever73827293$219 on 8/8/2017
Why aren't all the photos in my camera roll that I took available on the app?
App won't start on phone
ednorton79 on 8/4/2017
Not sure why this app won't start up on my phone-- I have an iPhone 7+ with the latest iOS (10.3.3), but for some reason this app refuses to start on my phone. Very disappointing.
What I needed
Faeeey on 7/12/2017
Does what I need, turned my Live Photos into videos or let's me choose the right frame! You have to click the export buttons to make it work which took me a minute to figure out!
