Awesome app 554472 - Insane Price Point
I installed and deleted it immediately... I’ve paid for my favourite mobile editing app (MuseCam) in the past, and enjoy the purchase. I also have paid $40-50 on the Mac App Store for Affinity Photo, my full featured editing suite. For $5/WEEK you can edit with their presets, or for their self claimed 85% discounted yearly subscription of $35/Year, you can have the presets under that price format. Something’s gotta change here
Edit: I knew something had to be wrong with my initial notion. I reinstalled the app, and sure enough, I missed a sneaky little greyed out ‘X’ in the top left corner. After clicking it, you can proceed to the free version of the app, which I have to say is quite nice. You seem to get two presets from each of the collections they give you, and I am impressed with their image processing algorithms, they are nice. I still don’t take back my words about the insanely high subscription model price point, but I’ll leave 5 stars for the actual app. It clearly has been well thought out.
respektful customer - Liked the app but my account didnt renew
I love the app's interface and ease of access to edit photos and videos. But as a turn of events really turned me off from this app. Recently I had to delete apps to free up space. Originally i had the yearly subscription to prequel and didn't think anything of it, I paid for a yearly Subscription, I can surely get it back upon re-downloading. But when I rebooted the app a month later it wouldn't let me get past the apps deals for a 1 week subscription unless i clicked it. (I had a yearly subscription already why is it showing me deals as if im a new customer? I thought) i never switched iClouds and the subscription was still valid. But i wanted to edit something in a hurry so rebooted it again and the SAME THING HAPPENED. Why am I getting double charged for a weekly subscription when i was trying to bypass and get to my stuff. So I contacted the support and they told me the charges were by apple and they said click restore purchase. So I cancelled the weekly subscription and clicked restore purchase and it gave me the WEEKLY SUBSCRIPTION. >;( I forward the emails for both receipts to both apple and prequel and since i clicked restore purchase it wont even let me cancel the weekly subscription. Highly upset at the hiccup and i just want a refund.
Brett Grace - No exaggeration, the greatest app I’ve ever used
I almost don’t even wanna tell my friends about this app because I’ve been able to impress them so much by using it! The ease, detail, endless possibilities. It’s actually mind-blowing. There are a handful of aesthetic apps to give VHS effect or Super 8 or something like that, but Prequel is in a league of it’s own. If you have a brand or are a content creator, this is the secret to doing sleek, professional, high quality work. I would like to pay a bigger fee once instead of annually but they make it so worthwhile by constantly adding updates like they just did several for Halloween and I’d assume they’ll do similar for Christmas. The textures they use make fonts look like real lacquer pins or fabric patches. These guys have it all figured out!! More than a review, I just want to thank the developers — this app has made my year!
Hollythebird - Used to be my favorite app then they got greedy EDIT
Edit September 1st 2019: the developers responded with a super lame canned response justifying their 8+ subscription options. I cancelled mine last week. Over this app and on to another- note: don’t download this app friends they’re a greedy bunch who just had to mess with something they had that was good. 1 subscription tier was enough but to add more so you have to pay the highest amount to get everything is just downright rude. DEVELOPERS I SUGGEST YOU START GIVING REAL RESPONSES AND ACTUALLY READING REVIEWS INSTEAD OF SOME COPY AND PASTE BS. You lost me as a customer and I’m sure many more. I take my rating down to 1 star. AND DON’T respond with “try our free version etc blah blah” the free version is horrid and you’ve made it that way so people have to pay. Disappointed in your company. Don’t fix what’s broke, but you just had to have more $$$.
They used to have a FEW subscription options for premium. Now they have a TON so that you have to pay even MORE than you were for even more filters. Won’t be paying anymore. So sad because this used to be my go-to app. But they decided to get greedy because premium payment wasn’t enough already. If I pay $5 a week I shouldn’t have to pay more for more filters. $20/ month?!
SFelony - The app is laggy...
I have been using Prequel for some time now because I love the effects it provides. I always use Prequel to make aesthetic edits of myself, my friends and just aesthetically pleasing things in general. But I’ve noticed that over time, Prequel has been slowing down and crashing pretty badly for me. I don’t know if its the same for other people but what happens is that I will import the video, crop it, and attempt to put an effect and boom. There it is. It is slow and ruins the vibe of the video. I just don’t know what’s wrong with the app. I don’t know if the app needs a new update or if I’m doing something wrong. Please fix this! I hope you take my complaint in consideration.
First of all, thank you for replying back. Second of all, the overall issue is the filter. Once I click on a filter like for example, disco, VHS, just any filter in particular, it will immediately slow down. The filters just sort of crash...but I hope you guys cab fix this soon. That way I can keep using the best editing app for aesthetic edits.😊
Lukehemmings.girl_56 - App refusing to work
Just recently, maybe a month or two ago, I started noticing that the app wasn’t working. First, it was whenever I wanted to export my video. Once I had finished finding a filter or an effect, it would load as if it’s getting ready to export and then it doesn't export at all. And no matter how many times I would try to export it, or go back into the app, or shut my phone off, it just would take days to export. And now, as I’m trying to use the app, I can’t even get passed from cropping the video. It’s doing the same thing, after I’ve picked a video I want to edit, and cropped it to the size I want, it loads like it’s going to let me continue, and then it doesn’t. And I’ve exited out of the app and tried again, and I’ve shut down my phone multiple times thinking it needs a refresh, but I can’t get passed from cropping the video.
I’m not sure why it’s doing that and it’s getting really annoying. The app is really cool and I really enjoy it since I’m a video editor, but I’m thinking about just deleting it and finding a different app because I don’t want to keep wasting my time on a incorporative app.
Please fix this issue!
pristidle - i wish you would get rid of this
everything about this app is AMAZING and i’m so happy that you offer users who want to use the limited version so many filters and effects for free, but the only thing that ruins it is the fact that you have to deal with a big watermark on your photo/video when you want to share it. the only way that i can get rid of the watermark is if i pay $5/WEEK and that’s to use everything in the app, there’s no option to just get rid of the watermark. i really wish that for the free version that you could get rid of the watermark because users are so excited once they’re done editing their photo/video and then a big watermark appears that you can’t get rid of. i’m completely fine with the fact that you don’t have access to all do the effects and filters unless you pay, but for me the watermark in the limited version makes this app so useless and not fun to use. i don’t have to money to be spending $5/week on an app i won’t use every single day. please understand and take the forced watermark away..
alanaroyale_ - I REALLY LOVE THIS APP,BUT...
I really loved a lot of the free filters & effects & how you can customize each filter! I love everything about this app, however, I think that paying $5/week to unlock all the other filters & editing features are a bit too pricey, especially if you’re paying WEEKLY! Even though I really do like this app & I know that I will be using this app a lot, I don’t think it’s necessary to pay a weekly subscription for that kind of price for all those filters. Also, for some strange reason, everytime I go onto the app, after each minute my screen dims & gets darker & darker & it’s very hard to see how I’m editing my photos & videos! My brightness is turned up all the way & the app still causes my screen to dim & I have get out of the app & wait for the brightness to turn up again. Please add a monthly subscription for those who want use all of the features but don’t want to pay high price for them & please fix this bug!
CatherineTulip - Pretty Good! Except...
Overall, this is an AMAZING app for small videos that just need something extra to make them pop with many vibrant filters and very bling-ey effects! (I know bling-ey isn’t a word) My only problem with it is that you can only make videos up to 1:00 long! only one minute! I enjoy using this for mainly short tiktok edits but I thought I’d try YT! I filmed and eventually got to the part where I’d use PREQUEL to add something extra! (I use Miami to 80% And stardust to 20%) then realizing I can only edit one minute of it. So i gave up on that. That was a little annoying considering those effects would kind of carry the whole video then finding out I can’t use them. I know this app is mainly for shorter videos but I really feel that if they added the ability to edit a longer video, it’d be way more of a powerful and useful app! Please lmk if there are any updates though I’ve kept it installed! Thank you,
adamgntr - Great Application, Worst subscription system
UPDATE: The watermark has been removed for free users!!!!!! Amazinnnng!!! Thank you Developers.
I don’t write that many reviews and much less bad reviews, although this app has some amazing and unique effects you may not find anywhere else, i have to point out to a really turn down fact which is your subscription system, paying weekly with as high price point is probably the worst I’ve came across yet, even if it’s something still affordable but it is absurd to pay such amount weekly for an app that you use once a week. We want to have the feeling of paying for something and not thinking about it much like one time purchases or at least make it monthly and reduce the price point. Anyway if you don’t mind the big water mark than you're fine with the free versions
MsliceIsNice - My favorite app of all time?
I’ve been using this app and loving every minute of it. So much capability. User friendly. Spectacular outcomes. Super fun to use. Even the free version gives you a lot of innovative and fresh filters, music and so much more for video and stills. I love the simplicity and elegance. With the integration of music too! My own library and the app has a library too. You have the option of dragging to select the few seconds of music of your choice. I don’t have any music capability on IG but...now I do. The power to produce content like PREQUEL affords is priceless in this “look at me” marketplace. If you’re an original content creator and/or you’re curating, repurposing, re-anything? Your now have an addictively classy tool to monetize you. Or make impressive memories for your clients, friends and family.
It’s my favorite app. Ever.
Card games are awesome - My experience
I downloaded the Prequel app because several of my friends were super satisfied and recommended. I was a little skeptical of the app at first because it was free and it produced creative quality products.
I didn’t know much about editing videos and photos until I got the app. It was literally the easiest editing app to use period! It took me like 25 minutes to get the hang of it. The best part was there no annoying ads after finalizing a video or photo like other editing apps. Overall my experience with this app was awesome and fun and would recommend to family and friends. The free 3 day trial was the best 3 days of my life!
Jess8Hess - $5 a week to get rid of watermark
Ok, I’ve paid for editing apps before, and I would probably have paid a couple of dollars to get the whole package from this app. But $5/week is just ridiculous. The free version looked pretty cool, until I saved the photo I had edited and they placed a big, ugly logo on the front and told me I couldn’t get rid of it without paying for the full app. For $5/week. That’s just lunacy. This isn’t worth it. There are lots of fun editing apps out there, don’t waste your time with this one. This one will run you $20/month, ~$240/year, that’s honestly ridiculous for an app. Maybe if this was actually a full version of photoshop. But photoshop has an app that’s better than this one, and it doesn’t charge you $5/week. The video effects are cool, but nothing is worth anything with the big ugly watermark on every pic or vid you save. If they got rid of that, I would use the free version, but there’s very little that could persuade me to spend $5/week on an editing app. What are the developers thinking?!
Captain Odd - Please fix how often the app crashes.
It has super cute filters and effects and everything but I find myself using it less and less because it usually crashes like 11 times before it actually wants to work. Doesn’t even make it past the start-up/loading screen because it doesn’t want to start loading; there’d be a frozen grey screen with the app logo for like a minute before it crashes. I would give this more stars for the filters alone but at this point I don’t even think the filters are worth dealing with trying to get the app to work in the first place. I’ve never dealt with an app that crashes more than this one, or even came close lol
I really like the filters so I used to stick it out and would try to reopen it every time it crashed until it finally worked but I’m getting sick of it. I kept the app in my phone for almost a year already waiting for an update to fix the crashes (I get my hopes up when I read “minor bug fixes”) but it never came so I think I’m gonna delete the app. Please fix the issue. The app feels like it only works well when it wants to. None of the other apps in my phone crash either so I know my phone is not the problem.
Performance when the app wants to work: 5/5
Performance the rest of the time: 0/5
Would have given a 1/5 but the filters salvaged it a little.
SushiKat77 - It’s Okay But..
It does not allow you to rotate videos. I shot a horizontal video, so it’s not vertical. I want to rotate it so you can turn your phone and watch it on the whole screen. I was able to do it on another app, and I tried add effects on Prequel. But prequel rotates it back, and does not allow you to rotate videos. I don’t like to zoom in, or have the background filled in. And after exporting it with the background filled in cause zooming in compromises the video—if I try to rotate it on another app back to the way I had it, it has the background Prequel filled in and doesn’t rotate right, if that makes sense, and so I can’t use this app. The effect is not as important as having the right orientation on a video. I just want to to rotate the darn video. Such a basic feature, you ought to give more control of that. Otherwise it’s a nice app.
JayDevs - Doesn’t open anymore?
I remember when this app used to have 5+ subscriptions in order to have a quality app experience but this was essentially based off trial and error due to the company wanting to learn what users enjoy. So with that being said I’m not gonna sit here and complain about it being pay to play cause it’s still in development last I saw. However I have other worries about this app and it’s growth.
Now I have iOS device. It’s the iPhone 6s and I’ve been editing for a while now wether it be transitions, effects, or even motion tracking.
So off the top of my head I figured this app would work pretty good it’s only been a year since I last tried it and my phone is perfectly fine as far as running apps etc.
I downloaded it this morning to give it another go and was greeted by a logo that doesn’t go away. The app opens perfectly fine but once the logo appears, that’s it.
Tried restarting the app, nothing. Tried restarting my phone, nothing. Tried using a different device, nothing.
So essentially the app is looking at the company’s logo now. I don’t see this being fixed anytime soon either due to developers only responding to suggestive ideas so with that being said I encourage you to not download this until it’s next update.
Currently this app is broken.
king_dollophead - Depends on what you use it for
I used to use this app to put filters on video edits I made since the filters are pretty nice. However as I kept using the app I noticed it made the timing of the clips in my videos COMPLETELY out of sync with the music. This is a frustrating issue i sort of fixed by exporting to another app, but it seems Prequel messed the timing up by removing frames which makes the video look more choppy when fixing the timing, and it ultimately lowers the quality since I had to export and save so many times. In the end, using this app isn’t worth it for me, but I will happily go back to using it if this issue is fixed. If you don’t care about audio syncing up with the video or your video has no audio then this is a great app to use.
sydney20008 - Wow is this app stunning
I’ve been seeing TikTok videos with beautiful filters and sparkles all around. I couldn’t find those apps, I found something BETTER. This app has stunning filters and bling effects for 100% free no catch. You can get an extension if you would like to, I think you would be getting your moneys worth. I love this apps moving photo effect as well. The trendy Instagram photos were blown away when people started using this app to show off their best features. I trust and love the app and I would definitely recommend getting it!! 😌😊
dicklover4400400 - Unable to restore purchase
I learned about the app from TikTok and was immediately intrigued by it since I love to edit videos. I wound up getting the yearly pass on my iPhone (mostly because I didn’t notice the free version being available at first lol) but I did enjoy having the ability to use all of features the app had to offer.
My problem occurred when I got a new phone. I downloaded prequel using the same Apple ID I used to purchase it originally on my new phone but it wouldn’t restore my yearly pass which means I would have to pay $34 AGAIN. I’ve only had prequel for two months or so, so obviously that isn’t letting me make the most of my money. I’m super disappointed and unless I can figure out how to restore my purchase, I’m cancelling my subscription and have no plans on renewing it.
….Leah - Dope app, ridiculous price point
After being forced to sign up for a trial, with the full intent of canceling it after checking out the contents, I must say the filters are pretty dope. Very unique filters and effects that would definitely make your photos way more interesting. However, take off a star because of their pricing. There is no way on earth I’m spending 20 dollars a MONTH on this app. The developers should try their hand at comedy because they’re funny af for that absurd price. As much as I’d love to add a Polaroid frame with some text or a mirror effect to my pic, I’ll stick with the plethora of apps that are either free or a small fraction of the price than what these developers are asking for Prequel. Next!
delanie.middlenamething - This is pretty dope ngl
So far my usage of the app has been going pretty well! For the free version, it actually gives quite of bit of nice features therefore you don’t absolutely have to pay for the subscription. At times however it won’t load which quite honestly could just be my WiFi or just my phone being weird but it’s been happening quite a bit, other than that good app and pretty cOol! However I’m having a bit of difficulty in terms of editing photos that have already been taken, it won’t load and just closes out of the loading process after cropping the photo and doesn’t allow me to further it to the actual editing.
loveyourself92 - They don't let you listen to music while you edit photos 😶
I love the app but the fact I have to sit in silence while I edit photos on it is really making it less fun 😶,, please patch it so in the settings or something we can allow our own music to play while we're within the app.
Also I don't like that I can't mute my phone while I edit a video clip. It pauses the clip and won't play until I turn it back up again.. You start to go crazy and start hating the clip you're editing when you have to listen to the same loop over and over a million times 💀 Please let me listen to my own music while within the app and let me mute my phone while I edit a video clip! 👍
KrystleLina - This app used to be good.
I’ve had this app for a long time. I preferred this app over all apps because the beauty editing tools were so good and so natural. I always hated snapchat filters and competitive apps that claimed to have beauty editing. Prequel made changes, and I have not been able to use the beauty editing filters in a long time. I reached out by email, and got a responses but no actual help. I can see the beauty tools are there, but they don’t work. When I slide the bar in either direction, nothing happens. The skin smoother doesn’t work, the teeth whitener doesn’t work. I literally bought the app just for those couple of features because I don’t like over edited filters.. I’m disappointed in the changes with the app. I’m not sure if anyone else has had this issue or if it’s just happening to me but it really bums me out.
Pritika_the_unicorn - This needs to be removed
Normally, i would rate an app like this 5 stars, however, i can’t believe the fact that after taking the time to edit my photos and videos, the result is completely ruined with this massive watermark. i understand that the watermark is a form of advertisement to help the app developers persuade more people into buying the weekly subscription, but i hope they know that not a single soul is willing to pay 5 DOLLARS A WEEK for a photo editing app. this is more expensive than my television subscriptions and i use those way more than this app. I’m not asking for the app to be completely free or to not put the watermark, but at least let us choose where to put it and make it smaller.
paroxysm.cc - Unless you want to pay to use , don’t even bother downloading
In the app, it reads “try prequel gold”, implying that you can buy and use it optionally, which isn’t the case. You can’t get yo try any effects or anything without actually purchasing the gold . Sure it offers a free 3 day trial at first but I just wanted to use the free version, which clearly there isn’t any. If I was more a terrible person , I could try to sue for false info, at the fact that they have the word “try” for the gold, not that you have to pay to use. If there was an option for no starts I would have left none. Don’t waste your time unless you don’t mind paying, but there plenty of other apps out there that are actually free that offer the same effects as this one.
EH- bye... - DONT GET THIS APP
Guys, I decided to get this app because It seemed cool, yk? So I got it, I skipped through the beginning pictures when you first get an app (sometimes) so yeah. Then, It made me double tap the side of my phone (like the power button) and downloaded the subscription for $35 a year!! Now i’m in trouble, thanks to this stupid app who’s making people buy the subscription. Mind you, It literally said that right in the beginning. I thought it was some type of thing to unlock for the app, or like to login to this with an account or something. I sent a request to apple to get my moms money back. Don’t get this stupid frickin app, I don’t recommend it. Also, pay attention to the apps you get beforehand cause they’ll trick you and make you pay lots of frickin money which you didn’t purposely mean to. H
Mad*Hatter - New changes to music
Let me preface with that I’ve been subscribed and paid weekly for this app for over half of a year now, and they really SCREWED their subscribers over by taking away the music. Sure, the music is still there, but now you have to pay EXTRA from the iTunes Store for each song. I’ve been loyal to this app because I loved it and I have referred lots of friends to it... but this new change... I feel like I’ve been slighted BIG time after paying the ridiculous amount that I do every week. Considering cancelling my subscription and deleting because this feels like a scam now. I used it to edit videos and put the songs to it, and now you expect me to pay out the nose for it????? No thank you!
Saddening, really... I can’t believe they screwed over their subscribers like this.
Едена - How can I fix this?
I wouldn’t say prequel is a bad app, I’ve heard many good things about this app and would love to be able to edit my videos on prequel. I downloaded prequel in January to try it out and when it finished downloading I went onto the app and it only got to the suggestion of prequel Gold and when I clicked the X it wouldn’t close so I refreshed the app and it wouldn’t even open up it showed the little intro thing at the beginning and the completely freezes again! I deleted the app and just downloaded it again and the same thing happened, I’m not sure if it’s because My iPhone isn’t updated or maybe it’s because It’s and iPhone 6 but please help me out I really would like to solve this problem.
AestheticHP - ITS AMAZING.
I fricken love this app, it’s simple and easy to understand. I love that you can mess with the filter sliders to get just what you want, it’s pretty useful! I make instagram edits and none of my programs have cool filters so I decided to try this out... and wow this app is so GOOD?! It has no watermark which I appreciate so much, and even though there is a subscription to get more filters, I can still make a bomb edit with the free filters. 10/10 Would very recommend, it’s just a life saver, makes my post looks more aesthetically pleasing. I really have no complaints.
vickross29 - I don’t ever write reviews...
I don’t EVER write reviews but I felt compelled to write this one after using this app. I had been looking for an app that I could make videos with good music with for WEEKS and couldn’t find anything. Then I found this. This app is amazing as far as I’m concerned. It has every song I search for- even the most rare. It has really cool effects and I didn’t buy the extra version just the free one. I’ve only been using this for a couple of days and I’m honestly in love! Good job!! Definitely recommend!!
hadleyaninchel - Love the app but not pleased with a recent update...
Never in my life have I ever written a review for an app prior to this one. I pay the subscription for premium $4.99 a week because I am SO in love with this app and the features it has. I am big into edits and creative work so I always add music to my photos + clips. Unfortunately now you’ve taken away that privilege for everyone. Now I have to purchase every song through the app store which limits my ability to create variety in my projects. Looks like I will have to find another way to add music and cancel my subscription to this app. I have a feeling other users will be frustrated with this as well - hoping this gets fixed in the future.
dghjcjkjcds - Non stop crashing
I used this app for the first time a few days ago and it was lovely; so many cool free filters and effects, it was so much easier to use this app than try to figure out how a professional video editing program worked.
However, I noticed that this app has updated within the past few hours and now the app won’t stay open for more than a few seconds when trying to edit a photo from my gallery. I’ve reinstalled the app, restarted my phone, reshot and re-recorded my videos to edit, and yet the app still crashes. I would appreciate some help from the developer w this issue because I love this app.
emamamamamamamama - Newest update makes it harder to edit
After a while of trying it out, the new update just isn’t for me. The aesthetic change is fine, I can see what they were going for, but it takes so much longer, and the setup is so much less intuitive. It makes popping in to check what a photo would look like with a certain filter a much longer process. I find myself not wanting to use the app, which makes me sad because it used to be my favorite editor. It wasn’t broke before, not sure why they tried to fix it. If there’s a way to revert to the past layout added in a future update I’d definitely come back. I feel sorry for the people who pay $7 a week.
cello jackson - makes my edits off beat
overall, prequel is a really good app for filters. You can use most of the effects for free, which I really like. I also really like the fact that it doesn’t have a watermark. But the one thing I don’t like about prequel is that it makes my edits off beat. I make edits for my edit account on instagram and prequel is always my go to when I want a vhs filter, bling, or just to add an aesthetic to the edit, but when I put my edit into prequel, it makes it super off beat making me have to redo the edit and spend a lot more time than necessary on one post.
Rhi rhi 22 - Saving glitch :(
I love this app I used to love it more when it allowed us to use music without buying from iTunes:( it was the only app left that did that, but I’m sure they changed it for copyright reasons unfortunately. I love the filters it helps me add an aesthetic feel to my videos, however, recently I’ve run into an issue where I try and export the video and it acts like it’s loading only to remain on the same editing screen. I can’t save my videos because of this :/ please fix it!!
AmandaRobbins9 - This app is a SCAM!!!
I signed up for the trial period to try it out. I did enjoy the features the first few days I tried it but they are NOT worth paying $5 a week!!! Not by a long shot. And when you sign up, they do not tell you they have many other options besides the weekly subscription which ends up adding up to $20 a month! That’s insane!
Anyways, once the trial period was over, I could no longer use any of the premium features. So I assumed the subscription cancelled automatically. Then I get a receipt from Apple showing they charged me for TWO WEEKS, and even still the premium features are not available to me. I requested a refund thru Apple & they said I do not qualify for a refund. So basically they took $10 from me for absolutely nothing. And I don’t make enough money to be spending like that because I am disabled!
Scam scam scam!!!
Update in response to developers response:
I don’t need info to cancel the subscription, I’ve already done it now. What I want is my $10 back for two weeks I didn’t want, NOR were the premium features available!!!! Anything less than my money back is insufficient!!
Alpa_SheeN0 - Not gonna pay subscriptions!!!
This app has also updated their terms and condition on sharing your personal information to 3rd party companies. As if it wasn't enough you also now have to pay an aggressive subscription for an app that I will probably use 3 or 4 times a month, not worth the insane subscription options. Although when I used the app before it was good it had cool filters and it was very promising. But all that goodness went out the window when they updated their terms and added very aggressive subscription options for casual users. I gave a 2 star rating because I used to like their content but beyond that its a fail on the rest.
chloeleedavis183 - great filters and quality
i love this app a lot it helps me edit my videos and photos i have never used the paid stuff and I think it works just fine. I wouldn’t change anything about this app the filters are amazing I have gotten compliments and what app I use to edit my photos. I tell them the app and they always say that it makes there photos 100% better. I will use this app to edit my photos till the day I die or taking photos. I recommended for everyone.
darth julissa - LOVE LOVE LOVE THE FILTERS!!!
I love this app. I saw it as in ad on Instagram and IMMEDIATELY decided to download it, however I don’t like the idea of paying $2.99 a week just to get rid of a watermark and to get some special features. An app called InShot gives you the option to pay $2.99 a month or more to become a monthly subscriber or you can buy filters. I have plenty of apps that give the options of having the VHS effect but they won’t let you stack them up like Prequel does, I constantly have to go into different apps (max is 2) to create the effects that I want. I’d love to see a change in the $2.99 a week....other than that I love this app!
Njr1313 - Great App
I read some other reviews before downloading, mostly negative. I disagree with them. What a fantastic selection of filters and effects that i haven't found anywhere else for free. Honestly blown away by the quality of the content available. Its clear that time and effort has been put into development and interface, so I understand some features being locked behind a paywall. Looking forward to many posts and projects using this app, would recommend.
Cee Cee🦋 - Amazing but Major Flaws
Of course this app is amazing. You get sooooo many amazing effects and filter for free so im never gonna uninstall but my only thing is, I think you guys should add more ratios. I wanted one of my 16:9 videos to have a certain filter and usually what I would do is put canvas in 1:1 and zoom the video or picture out and proceeded on but now when I want to do the same thing it freezes and takes me to the home screen which is really a bummer. Other then that this is THE BEST app for free filters and effects. Like i said , never uninstalling <3
BabyLo6 - Highly recommend
I used to never edit my photos, mainly because I could never find any ‘aesthetically pleasing’ filters. Instagram filters are awful and most apps make you pay for the really good ones. Prequel has great filters and affects in different variants so you can still have the cool ones without paying. The also removed the watermark for non paying users which is absolutely amazing. I honestly would pay for the ‘gold’ to see and use all the other filters.
ava crowley - the apps has some bugs but it seems really good
As I have seen, the app looks really cool to use and a bunch of new affects and there is no more watermark. The one thing that doesn’t work out with me was when it says to go on to settings and enable camera and microphone, nothing showed up. When it is possible to do so, can you please put the pop up saying, “Allow PREQUEL to access camera and microphone.” Besides that one point, the app seems great for editing. Please try to fix that...
Photogenickayy - Not worth paying every week
I love what this app has to offer, & I understand you given us a free version with the watermark on the video/picture and limited filters but paying $5/week for the full version!? That’s highly unreasonable. I really believe if your going to charge individuals to get the full version of the app, you should have it to where we pay once and won’t have to pay again. Versus paying $5 a week for something that we won’t use everyday.
Mya Capa - laggy / crashing
overall this app is amazing! there have been no problems since i downloaded the app a few months ago, but staring today july 31, 2020 everytime i try to import my own video from my camera roll and try to add an effect, such as VHS, the video gets choppy and it slows down and the app ends up crashing on me and automatically puts me back to my home screen. this is one of my favorite apps and i would love if you could fix the problem so i can enjoy making my edits without any worries of crashing !
Ella😗✌️ - I am really disappointed. I was really looking forward to this app.
When I downloaded the app I was hoping it would work after seeing some reviews. It doesn’t! When I open the app I looked at the filters and they hadn’t finished loading. I waited a few more minutes and they still hadn’t loaded. So I clicked on a filter and waited thinking that would work. I still would not work. I am really disappointed and wanted to use the app. I went online and tried to see if anyone else had this problem. I didn’t find anything, so then I looked at the reviews and found that other people had problems as well just different ones. I hope that in the future you will fix this mistake.
lol.-.-.-. - i like this app,😭
personally it only works for pictures because when i try to take a video on it, it says recording error and at first it was my storage but i deleted almost everything and i have most of my storage and i tried deleting it about 4 times and i still get the same thing. it’s good for pictures tho, i have no complaints other then that i can’t take videos but i love how the pictures come out on this app. i would recommend to anyone that wants a picture to look of a higher quality then it actually is. i’m using the free version to see if i like it and if i keep enjoying it then i will get the subscription. the quality of each picture is so great. i didn’t think i’d like it at first but i actually do and some of my friends can take videos on there phone and they turn out great as well. therefore i 100% recommend and it’s a great app.
Aubz M - Good but something isn’t working!
I had this for maybe 2 weeks and it was working fine everything was great until I tried using it again after a few uses. When I click on the app, it’s logo/icon just stays, it doesn’t load in. It is really hard to explain but I went to the App Store to see if it needs updated and it doesn’t. I’m really confused I deleted it and re-downloaded it tons of times and still won’t work! I’m really sad because this was my favorite app and has everything I liked. :( PLEASE RESPOND BACK!
@riggztwonice - App is great BUT
Hey Y’all, the app is great! But unfortunately, there is a little lag that occurs when exporting high quality videos from the app to the camera roll, or any socia media app. This is a huge concern considering a lot of people are using this app as a final stop. So if the audio has fallen behind the video due to the app’s lag time, it throws all the editing off. This is torture for musicians, adventure bloggers, athletic highlights, and more.
If you could include a way to adjust the audio to make up for the lag time, this is easily the best video effect app on the App Store.
Josephine Z - few bugs but great app
I have been using Prequel to edit a lot of my videos for a while and it is a great app, I always seem to find what i’m looking for and they have a great and extensive collection. Unlike other editing apps almost everything you would need is free and easily accessible. My only issue with the app is how overheated my phone gets whenever I use it. It makes the process 10x longer and there is no option to pause a video while editing or make the video smaller on the screen. Overall I really like the app, it just needs a few fixes.

ladydi027 - Absolutely not worth the money
After downloading this app I used it once, yes it has some minor differences from your usual filter apps including insta and Facebook. You can excess iTunes, 👍🏾 but it wasn’t enough for the price, absolutely not. 👎🏽I was locked out of the app for some time and was given no directions on how to cancel it. I would like to cancel my subscription if anyone can help
checkthegirl - Great but would love a cheaper subscription
I think this app is fantastic and great free features but I’d actually use it more and pay for it if there was a cheaper subscription option OR a one off remove watermark fee... Surely dropping the subscription fee would mean more money in the developers pocket and less users only accessing the free features? Just a thought. This would be my main app if it was cheaper. Aussie users have to pay more because of the conversion fee too! Love it but just out of my budget to pay for it at present. (And I want to give you my money but just can’t afford current price).
Jevonnz - $32 per month subscription?!
I was really excited about getting this app until it I realised how much pressure advertising there is loaded into it.. sure 3days free trial but pumping people to pay $8 per week! For a subscription. It’s a shame, cos tho I had to dig a bit to find what other subscriptions payments you have, the one you press most in the limited version is way more expensive! A shame again cos it looks like the app could have a lot of organic growth and popularity without asking the crazy outlay! I seldom write reviews anymore but I was gutted with this purchase unfortunately, feeling you guys may have cut yourself short by coming out pressing too hard for big dollars. Maybe you might reconsider your ‘prequel’.. or prerequisite. cheers. J
Dasha1012 - Great BUT!
I can understand how a lot of people might love this app, but unfortunately not a lot can fully enjoy it. 😔
I’m writing to actually App Team, please consider to make one off payment for full version, it could be $20 $30 $50, but $7 every week it’s a bit to much.
Remember you might make more money selling the app, rather waiting for someone to subscribe permanently for $7 a week. I’m sure there are many people who will unsubscribe after 1-2 weeks use, simply because it’s not worth it.
Many thanks 😊
Ayomayonyse - Soooooo expensive
Really cool app but $4.49 USD is ridiculous. Would be happy to pay and outright payment for the full version but $20 a month is way too much come on.
I suggest making at least a middle ground option where you can at least pay to permanently remove watermarks on the free filters.
Edit: I cannot believe this went up to $7.99 USD a week. How can you justify that? Are you wanting to make the app exclusive and only a small majority of people can use it? Honestly you’re charging adobe level prices for one app. If it was cheaper you’d have more users. Simple.
suziQ.T - Now way
I used this app for a while on a pay by the month. There was a new feature I wanted to try and was offered the 3 days free. I hit yes and was instantly charged $56. The developer referred me to Apple and took no responsibility for the payment error. I unsubscribed within 2 hours of the 3 day free trial and was charged instantly.
The feature I liked was the face fixer which I noticed today has been removed. Really poor form from this developer. Shame because the app has some great features, but I can’t trust them. Stuck with the app now for 12 months because I don’t have time to chase Apple for a refund. I do have time to write this review so no one else gets hit.
curlzpapi - If I could marry the app I would
THIS app CURED my DEPRESSION. Amazing. And the optionsss.... for freee. You’re kidding me. And you would not even believe this,,, water mark??? Hello, where is she? She is no where to be seen and I couldn’t be happier.
Now I am off to be editing vibey videos on Pinterest.
Lots of love
jemeez - Great app. But way too expensive.
All I really want is to remove the watermark. $4.49 a week for that privilege is not worth it. I have my favourite filters that I like to use regularly and don’t need all the new releases. That being said, It’s a great app, easy to use, would recommend if you don’t mind the watermark. If there’s a different fee/price to remove the watermark that’s more within reason, I’d give it 5 stars.
ZykinYT - Problem with the photos
Hi, It's a great app for videos only I find the audio is out of sync with the video. Another problem is the photo setting. You can adjust the filters then when you take a photo they are not used on the photo. They don't work. Please fix these issues. It would make it an amazing app. I'm disappointed with those problems as I paid for the full features and wanted to use it for quick access. I don't use it. 😖
Liv🦄🦄 - Amazing! But the crashes are driving me inside!!!
Like i said in the title, i love the app so much! it’s features are amazing, but when editing videos it just crashes in the first three seconds. i’ve tried reinstalling, making the videos smaller, waiting and then logging on again etc. i just want to make videos again
Rowzatul - My Issue
It’s an amazing app. I use it to edit all my pictures and it has an amazing selection of different effects, filters and adding songs to your pictures to create videos. But after some time, the app’s load screen would go on and would stop and the app won’t work at all. I re-installed the app, and still.
Ири7845 - I love the App But....
Unfortunately I cannot Access iTunes for some reason. My iTunes work well. But clearly don’t want to pay for each song just to try it.(I’ve got monthly subscription on ITunes)
BTW my friend got this app over the years and everything works on hers. Is there anything possible that you can do? Thank you
iamtrueindigo - Amazing but too expensive
If i had the choice I would use only this app for everything, but the price is way to expensive! In the end it would be cheaper to use 3/4 apps for different features , and pay the fee for a year, than use only this one. Sad cuz there’s loads of possibilities with all the effects and features, who are truly amazing.
🌄🎆🎇 - I have always wanted prequel but...
I have heard and seen so many good reviews and so many good things about the app, but as soon as I downloaded it, my screen was stuck in an infinite loop of the effects and I couldn't get past it, i am trying but its not moving. Theres some time in my day hated, i just really wish it would work for me. I am editing this and... ITS STILL STUCK ON THE FREAKING HOME SCREEN!!!!!! I HAVE BEEN TRYING SOOOOO HARD AND I AM ACTUALLY REALLY ANGRY AND ANNOYED NOW!!!! I WILL GO KAREN MODE IF I HAVE TO
Blackroset89 - AMAZING, except for one thing...
I LOVE this app for editing photos and short clips. My one gripe with the app is I can’t make edit clips that are longer than a minute. If it had the ability to publish extended videos this would be only ONLY content editing app on my phone.
Please make this a feature
ellechxng - Apple Music
I have already paid for a subscription to Apple Music however prequel only has an option to add music from ITunes even though I already have the subscription for Apple Music. Is there any way I can possibly just use songs from my library without paying again for iTunes?
misslaylap - Big Problem
Whenever I open PREQUEL it just stays loading it doesn’t ever go into what I actually want to do please fix this bug because I want to edit some of my videos.
b.a.y.l.e.e - Good but won’t load
I have used prequel before and when I used it, I loved it to bits. But now randomly it doesn’t open, like at all it just sits on the loading screen. I have an iPhone 7 but I still think it should work. If there’s anything I need to do, creators of prequel just let me know.
Lillypilly rhymes with silly - Yep love it
People, when you go into subscriptions on iPhone, through the Apple ID, there are so many more packages for subscriptions then the two you get offered in the actual app. I freakin love this app
PariTarjomani - changes filters when exporting
Good app until it started changing the filters when exporting videos. I installed and uninstalled the app with no change. Fix it please.
I did email your support team 4 weeks and haven’t received a response since. This is an issue that others have had as well as inferred in one of the previous reviews. I believe it’s a bug and it needs to be fixed ASAP.
めんま さん - BEST APP
I’ll make this short and sweet, but Prequel is DEFINITELY worth the download! The filters are some of the best i’ve seen, and to get fantastic photos you don’t even need to pay. Highly recommend it!
instagram user - @imkikimaree - so glad about the new update
they removed the watermark yess ! i had to go thru sm more time n effort because of the watermark and now that it’s gone i’ll feel more comfortable sharing that i used ‘prequel’ to edit it YAY
Vienna🦋🌻 - Beast
This app is so helpful for my tik toks, I can do so much more stuff on here and it’s honestly just a vibe. I totally recommend this app and if your looking towards downloading it 3 words- Go•For•It you won’t regret it✌️✨
Holly1975sgh - Expensive
Absolutely love the filters, just wish it wasn’t as expensive for the year!
Yucccy - Terrible
As soon as I opened the app, it said I have to pay. There was no ‘I’d like to use this app for free without the premium features” I could only continue use of the app if I paid. If you won’t even let people use the app for free them why is it free on the App Store? Allow us to skip and let us use the app for free, then if we decide we want to pay for premium effects we will. Disappointing
wok in a box - too expensive
$8.00 A WEEK TO REMOVE A MASSIVE WATERMARK WHAT? it would be better if you paid to remove the water mark but not unlock the entire “vip” section, in other words the watermark should be paid for once and if you do want premium you should pay for it each month. i am very disappointed as this is such a good editing app.
yfdhnnj - Bug fix required
It’s an absolutely amazing app and I have the paid version. I love all the filters. Lately there has been a bug or something and the exported videos look a lot yellow with faded white spots all over. There is definitely something going on that needs fixing. Otherwise it’s a 5 star app!
moerien - Review
I have an iPhone 7+ and for some reason the app doesn’t open on my phone. I have deleted and re downloaded it multiple times and I even updated my phone to see if it would change. But nothing did. I’m not sure if it’s my phone or the app lagging but it’s annoying that I don’t know what it is. Please let me know if I can do anything about it.
emma2000lodge - New update has created heaps of flaws
Used to be my go to app for editing everything, however the new update has been very disappointing, filters and effects will simply not show up at all when selected. Hopefully this will be repaired soon, in the mean time I’ll just be crying. :(
Ken Te Wano - 80% Features Are Not Free
You made a comment when a user complained about prices . By saying that 80% of this app is free use how can it be when you charge after 3 days free trial . Please let’s have more honesty and transparency than trying to justify or mislead . Apart from that it’s a good app
indi..... lol - Really good! Love it
I downloaded it a while ago and it is so good! The filters are beautiful and are really aesthetic. Loved it so much that I have it a review ( I never give reviews lol )
Comelivewellwith.me - Unhappy
I went to see if the app was something I was interested in using. It wasn’t and deleted the app from my phone within 2 minutes. I did not agree to a subscription and now find out they have been scamming over $30 a month for something I don’t use or is on my phone. I won’t to be reembursed and will be reporting.
Britbrii818 - AMAZING FILTERS 😍
The filters are sooo good!
I'm just wondering if there is any way that I can add a filter to longer videos. At the moment it only lets me edit 17 seconds worth of a video :(.
I think I may just be doing something wrong haha.
Minxinpink - Loveeeee
Wish they would have a sub where you can just buy it out right? Also it is a bit slow to load
(Lggggg - The prices
I really wish they were a bit cheaper, I understand that you can pick from weekly, monthly and yearly. It’s hard for some people to pay for the filters that they want. I wish you could just pay for each filter that you would like without having to pay weekly,monthly,yearly ):
C r i s yayy27 - The update was uhh
The version before the update to me was a lot simpler to use, I have question: how do I save the video I edited? I see no save button. It would be nice if you can reply
taingi - Wow
U can either pay or use other free filters and I think it’s a really cool app to create and just have fun editing. Love it
maiasaura13 - Love the filters but not the price.
I am obsessed with the filters but the subscription is way overpriced and it would way better if we could pay a onetime payment just to remove the watermark.
EggFish!! - Subscription...really??
If there was a one time purchase option I would defiantly buy it as it’s an excellent app, but not subscription service excellent.
mmm buton - Price isn’t worth it
It’s a great app, cool effects and all... but you will left with a little logo at the bottom of the screen which is fine, but the price $$$ to remove the mark is way outta range, a week is too much.
ac.10 - Video will not export
I’ve had this app for about a month now, found it on tiktok. I used to easily export videos and live wallpapers, but now i can’t for some reason. I don’t know if it’s the new update. Please help soon
vezzaaaa - Subscription is a rip off
I really love all the effects on the app but was charged way too much. Watch out you don’t lose track of when they take money out.
dr_freezze - Great app but way too expensive
This app is great but not worth its $8 a week price tag . Specially with limited amount of control over each filter . might as well get the adobe suite and skip this app entirely.
shamalina (duh) - Yee yee
Really good app and really easy to use and I would’ve payed the full version to get the watermark removed but it’s $7.99 per week and I was like no ma’am.
FrenchŌpenMusic - Cool app, subscription model roadblock
If this app had reasonable one-time payment model rather than a subscription model I would definitely pay for it.
Durban Turban - Generally decent
Generally pretty good. Can't figure out why I can't add music when editing (without iTunes) on my iPhone 12 but I can on my iPhone X
gracejones83 - Expensive and glitchy app
For 7.99 per week and for the amount of glitches on your app this is by far the most expensive ask for an app. Other apps do a better job for the same effects at a low cost monthly subscription. Reconsider the ‘weekly’ cost to your app!
hyscx - Keeps crashing
Great filters/effects but often crashes while editing and it’s really annoying
whsssnsjwjsnjmwwf - iPhone 6s
Hiii! I really love this app. I use it on my iPad and it is by far the best filter app I’ve used. However I would really like to use this on my iPhone 6s. I know this is a big ask, and you can see where I’m going, but it make this app 2x better if other devices could use the app. Thanks and I really love the app!!! ❤️❤️
naia 18352 - Took my money!!
I was paying the subscription for 6 months and was never able to use any of the apps full features. I paid hundreds of dollars for nothing!! I am unable to get my money back and I could never use the things I paid for! 😡😡

Attaide - Amazing App
Really good app for the BTS 90’s edits🤗🤗
a n d j e l a - GREAT
I absolutely love this app!!!!!! I love the filters and affects but you do have to pay for rest of the filters. Prequel can you please make more options for filters without having to pay???
AllieThunder - loading
it wont load for me, when i open the app it just stays on one screen.
MississaugaMike - You have to pay!
Says free but as soon as you open it, it prompts you to buy the full version. Dumb and very limited
biancaxhernandez - bRo
I hate that this app doesn’t work for phones lower like iPhone 6 etc. u guys would have so many users on this app if u change that.
urbaby0306 - Good
This is the best edit app like 👌🏼👌🏼
ryleigh jane foley - why can’t I download on an IPad?
I make edits with a Prequel on my phone but I’m trying to download it on my IPad and it won’t work? fix this.
UNICORN-SAMA - yeet
From what I’ve seen, you guys reply to the most reviews of the people with the exact same words and such. I think it’s better to just pay individually for some filters or effects or watermark or whatever if you guys are not willing to do a one time payment for under $100. But, other than that, it’s a great app :) loved the edits other people have made. This app has a potential, really, but the weekly subscription is just too much for us broke people. But like we shouldn’t have to pay for watermark though :(
Mar10vin - Awesome
mariamcaka - Awful
The new version of prequel is terrible,i can’t even upload video or pic to edit it,and the face edits like “nose ,lips” are not free rn,i’m so dissapointed
SORRYYYYYBENE - LOVE THIS
I love this app i can make tiktoks withh itt
ExitedSloth223 - awesome
i LOVE the filters on this app, and although there are some that you have to pay for, the free ones are just as awesome. (tip: use the stardust effect and miami filter. they look awesome together)
Sheepa Inu - Crashing
Everytime I select a photo to import, it closes the app for some reason
Buffboo - I’m getting use to it
skksksskejhwhwoskssn - CRASh
This app constantly crashes when I try to use itn
123hangout - Great app
Makes me look like a model
Molly.o21 - Rachel🧴
I love the filters and sparkles !! For real!!
hopia mani popcorn - bruh
it keeps lagging 🤦🏻♀️
lshavehe - my review
this app is amazing and has done good things for me but the update is annoying. I can upload a video without it being zoomed in. As i tried to crop it, the whole video would get cut out. please go back to the old version of this app it was very useful then.
jdjdngbbndnwks - it’s amazing
it works amazing for filters effects and i love how you can save it as a live wallpaper
Nookie Nookie - Eh
I have the app on my iPad but I am writing this review on my iPhone 6 but I can’t download it
wayne karim - Five stars but....
Either needs more text options or I don’t know what I’m doing on the app yet
3ptmonstar7 - Please fix this
I cannot export anything
vvbkl - IT MAKES YOU PAY FOR SUBSCRIPTION
so i was opening the app the first time, and i accidentally did the subscription. I wasted my $7 bc the app makes it easy for users to fall for subscriptiom. App should change this.
Sony9876 - Asks for unnecessary privacy information
This app asks for unnecessary privacy information. It tracks my location, phone ID, the phone carrier I use, the apps I use, how long I use the apps, the data in my apps, my friends and contacts on my social media and so many other things. All this seems like it’s not necessary. I used to love this app but due to the unnecessary information that it is asking me. I don’t feel comfortable using it. If they could fix this and not track all the information on my phone I would be more happy to use it. As the amount of information that it is being asked is a bit unnecessary and seems irrelevant to the app. It makes me think whether this app is really safe?
kittykat335 - Snapchat
Best app ever the free filters are amazing
And if you’ve been looking for an app to turn saved photos into snaps this is it and there’s no water mark or link it’s the best
I haven’t paid a dime and this is the best app ever no complaints so far
You can also send the photos to Instagram and Facebook
bobo_babi - :/
I really like the various filters and eddy’s and would love to use them but It’s impossible to edit a video (and sometimes pictures) on this app without it crashing every few seconds
melpacifico - No landscape format ?
I love the effects you guys procide BUT I would like to use an IG landscape video (without adding borders) but your app does not support this format.
124(&7 - I WANT IPAD
Why is this app not available on iPad that’s stupid. It’s the most easyest way to edit on iPad
earthling 2045 - APP YOU NEEED!!!!!
The best app ever
Fartpeanutszombies - Loved it!
Its way too amazing!
Aliyah(Canada) RATE ME ON GAME - love it sm
i love the app but can u get rid of the white line on the side for vhs and the black spots too
Yooyototodugw - Refund
It charged me 53,10$ I did not buy anything it’s a scam I am extremely upset right now because I can’t pay this back
tamara Ava - Love this app
I can’t wait to use on tiktok
grrraaaaaccceee - unsafe
forces you to agree to terms of selling your information to third parties, and then the app crashes. takes way too much personal information, requires that u give access to microphone, camera, location, and all your photos, and then the app crashes! it will not open! awful update
Super mark! - Not what I expected
Not crazy about it and I didn’t appreciate being charged a whopping $50+ for a year’s subscription that I don’t even want. 😑
1096389 - BEST free app for video & photo effects
I love it, it’s very easy to use. Impressive 🤩🤩🤩
trudodo - great
one of my fav appli right now
DD TEAM 123💛 - It’s OK but...
I think this app is really cool I saw it on TickTock:) I really wanted to edit my videos but when I download it and try to get in it won’t let me download for some reason I was really upset please fix the app :C
Kate devon - OMG
THIS APPBIS AMAZING I LOCE IT i pranked so manybpeople and rhe editingbis on point!!
Libfszvbjuhbko - Incredible
This is one of the very few apps worth the money, very impressive!
dorota916 - Disappointed since update
I can no longer add music to my videos since I don’t have Apple Music. Was the only reason I payed for premium. Will be canceling.
- update to developer response -
I do not have music on iTunes. I don’t use iTunes and haven’t since like 2013 (the last time it was probably relevant).
Basically you’re telling me I have to BUY every song I want to add to a 15 second video for my personal use and ALSO PAY FOR PREMIUM? You are so wrong.
No longer using the app. Waste of time and money.
Kovaforlife - Music not working
I used to be able to use any song for about 15 seconds for free !! Now I have to pay for the song on Apple Music to add it to my video !! This sucks !! Why !!!?
15637377361 - sus
before you can even use the app it tells you that you have to accept a term that agrees to sharing personal data with third parties..no thanks😐😐
aliciacylau - Glitchy
The camera is really glitchy and it delays a lot. When I try to get a photo or video it ends up loading FOREVER
ewuglyrat - E
I love bts jimin is mine goes with tæhyung ;)
emmymaylol - Stopped using it
I used too really enjoy prequel but once the new update happened everything changed and i cant even use my favourite filter which is stupid cause it say it will “only work with portrait mode” y’all should’ve left the filters and effects be
sjsjisisjsjjsjjdd - i hate this app
it’s stuck on the loading screen and i cant even enter the app. i hate this app it’s overrated and frustrating
semqai - Stuck on welcome message
I opened up the app and have been stuck on the welcoming message for maybe 30 minutes now, I keep re-closing the app but it still doesn’t get off the welcoming screen

aleaveslove - No Thumbnail! 😄
Okay, I will admit I had doubts about this app at first. I thought that it was going to be one of those apps that do absolutely nothing until you get the subscription. But there are actually really cool effects on this app, similar to the bling effect on TikTok, which is how I found out about the app. However, I was especially surprised to find out that there is no thumbnail! Wow! I’ve always had to crop it out before, so this makes me give the app five stars! Great app!
Deeelyhnnn - 3/5
I think it’s an amazing app love filters and effects some issues with videos or it closes sometimes but only main thing i noticed frok everyone and for myself is.... i wish it was a one time purchase i seen many other app and they are great with their one time purchase but sadly this app only about monthly or yearly subscription no one time full purchase and that’s it. i do wish it was one time purchase bc i would def show all my friends and photography friends this and they would buy it in a heart beat but the subscription makes it a big downfall
Babybutterking - really amazing, except...
on most days, the app works wonderfully. i love how many filters and cool effects you can get and for free.
however, sometimes the entire app will just shut down and this usually happens 1/10 times that I use it. I can upload a photo or video, but the second that I try add an effect or filter to it, it completely crashes. i thought it was just my phone at first, but then even after a got a new one it still does this.
I love the app 90% of the time, but it is extremely frustrating on the off days where it won’t work.
Elizabeth121379 - Great but slow
So I’ve had this app for a very long time. It’s great! I love all the filters and effects the app has and that I can download it without a sticker of the app in the corner. Although, in one of the recent updates the effect stuff was moved to the right from the bottom. I also noticed lots of other changes including it being much slower then it was when I first had the app. It takes a long time to load filters and to download the pictures/videos which I find very sad.
crimosaa - No watermarks
Amazing that you guys removed the watermark for free users especially with so many cool effects and useful filters (currently loving the aspen set for making my photos with green trees look way more autumnal). People are clever and always can figure out ways to get around or hide the watermarks without paying (especially with alternative apps out there). Hopefully this will pay off in word of mouth recommendations so this works out for both consumers and developers
Boom Kenzie Boom - Lag and loading slow?
I really, really love this app. It makes my photos prettier with the effects. But I have one tiny problem. The lag and loads. Now, every time when I load in, it takes about 2 minutes to wait. Now, when move my phone, it goes really slow. About the loading now. It takes forever to load a video that has an effect! I dunno why, but I think you should fix that. (ALL OF THIS IS IN MY OPINION!)
JackieCairo - Sell your photos and info. Don’t download!
silentxox23 - I love it
This app is great, it has some nice filters but it does have some setbacks. People that don't pay subscription get like 3 filters out of every section, and there aren't any big sizes. Most people use this to edit videos for wallpapers but it only fits like an IPhone 6s screen. I'm okay with not having that many filters since I cycle through the same 6 anyway, but what I ask is that we get bigger sizes so our videos can fit bigger phones (like X, XR, etc. yknow, long phones). Other than that the app is great!
hitns - I am so disappointed
I’ve had this app for a few weeks and I absolutely loved the retouch feature considering I could touch up on features, it was almost like photoshop! So cool! And then as of recently all the the options I once loved are now under the subscription and I do not, as a consumer especially during this pandemic, have the money to afford $20 a month for something that should be a little more assessable to a average consumer. I am so disappointed because as much as I would love to use this app and the cool features I can no longer afford it. Please consider giving a lot of the options back especially for Retouch! Why charge so much for premium? I just don’t understand :(
AmandaValentine978 - $5 a week
As a professional art photographer - I’m always excited to try out new photo apps on my phone. But lately the prices have gotten ridiculous. Adobe’s Creative Suite is cheaper than this - professional editing and creation software - cheaper. You can’t use more than half of the features without subscribing. And $20-25 a month seems pretty wild. From what I found playing around with the app - it’s cute and all but definitely not worth that price. There are better apps out there that offer just one time costs to unlock features. Normally just around $2. I’d would recc’d people stick to those. Most are better anyways.
Lilprincepjm - I love this app but...
I actually really love this app and it’s great for creating that vintage/retro look on your photos/videos, but it’s just way too expensive in my opinion. Paying $4.99 a week/ $20 a month just for some additional effects/filters and to remove the watermark ?? I would be more willing to pay if it was even just $4.99 a month or paying for the app and then that’s it. Also I believe the price went up because I remember it being $2.99 a week?? Idk, but the least y’all could do is remove the watermark for free because $4.99 a week is pretty ridiculous.
peachtea3 - Used to be amazing
When I first downloaded the app about a year ago I was very pleased with how it was so easy to use and my pictures came out amazing. Now, after I haven't used it in a few months, the layout is new and when I press "filter" to use a filter or any button or option for that matter, NOTHING shows up for me to select. I updated the app and the issue wasn't fixed and I even deleted and reinstalled it and nothing seems to fix it, I never used to have this issue a few months ago and I really enjoyed this app.
cinthyswe - Laggy, Won’t work on specific devices, EVERYTHING IS PRICEY!
First of all, this app is SO laggy. Every time I try to open the app it instantly makes me record. I refresh the app, and open it again and it records! That is a problem I want to be fixed. 2nd of all, this won’t work on specific devices! I try to download this app on my phone, but it won’t let me. If there is a possible way you could fix it please do it!! 3rd of all, everything is SO pricey! I like the filters, they’re cool and all, but everything is so pricey!! Please fix the price! I’m going to use a different app from now on until these problems are fixed. Hope you guys read this response.
tai_4679 - Please respond
I really love this app it’s amazing it has features that I could not have in other apps,but lately it’s been lagging.I don’t know what’s wrong but when I open the app it closes itself and when I go to take a photo or video it’s choppy though the result are fine it still takes a while and it’s really hard to do it .I don’t know what happened to it because the first time I downloaded the app it worked fine if you are having the same problems please help me out
EAngelos11 - Amazing
This is legitimately the best free photo/video app i’ve ever downloaded.
While there are obviously in-app purchases to unlock more exclusive features like filters and effects, all of the base features that come with the app as soon as you download it are phenomenal and incredibly user friendly.
There are so many neat things to play around with in the free version of the app that there really is no crucial need to pay for any extra features.
My personal favorite feature is being able to convert a video to a live photo which you can set as your wallpaper and watch come to life, an already existing technique that can be done with other apps, but can be spiced up with Prequel by putting on some of the sweet video effects/filters on.
Seriously an awesome app!
Slutxsuey - Amazing app but a few issues
I downloaded the app thinking it'd be useful when editing photos/videos. And I was shocked when I first used the app. All pictures and videos come out looking like they hadn't been rendered through an editing app. I'm very pleased with the effects and the app itself. However, there was an issue. I was unable to use a few effects. Anytime I tried to use them, my app crashed. I'm hoping there's a way to change this because I'd love to use the effects.
Apple User1202 - Problems with Videos
So I had heard about this app and wanted to try it out myself! I really love the filters and tools you can use to edit pix and vids. However, I’ve noticed that when trying to export a video, I click the check mark, wait for the exporting loading bar (like normal) and then nothing happens. The app won’t let me save videos which is frustrating because I spent a while trying to do so. No other app has the filters I LOVE but this app does so if this technical error gets fixed, then I would have no problems!
Denyia Thomas - 4 stars for now
Believe me it’s a really good app, I love everything about it. I use filters or effects on the app for photos or pictures I made, I really enjoy it, it’s my go to app, but...it could be better. I only really have one bad thing to say about it and it’s that the app crashes ALOT, when I’m about to put a filter or effect on my photo/video it’s like I have to be the flash with it and hurry up before the app crashes or exits me out. So please Prequel fix this so I can be able to enjoy the app 💕
beauxty🌸 - Tiny problem
So whenever I edit a video from my camera roll all the filters work, just when I export it it refuses to save to my camera roll and it glitches and takes me out the app.I had to reinstall the app and the same thing happened I suggest you fix this. I give this a 3 star because everything works with pictures but when I use Disco 2 there are about only one or two sparkles show in the pictures. Please read this and don’t respond with one of your copy and paste responses. The app is pretty good though.
Azrael.Alexandria - Over Charging
I love this app but I only use two filters. I went from $2.99 a week, which I could barley handle for the two filters but I was sucking it up, then all of a sudden I’m being charged $5.43 a week! For TWO filters. This is crazy. I’ll go back to having you watermark and covering it up with an emoji for FREE. And tell me why I go to change my subscription the $2.99 a week is still there? I’m scared to select it becuase for a couple weeks you were charging me for both subscriptions- what’s the difference? And why was I being charged both? Ugh
0A34h3 - Endless crashings (the best app tho)
The app keeps lagging and refuses to work. When I export a video, it just shows the loading bar, but doesn’t export the video. I deleted and downloaded it again, but it still keeps lagging so badly. The compatibility is iOS 12 and later, mine is iOS 14 (iPhone 7) so there’s no problem. I don’t understand why does it not work. Please fix the problem.
Although I love this app so much. It’s the best one out there, and the filters are just too amazing.
Samiplier - AMAZING
Even if you don't purchase the premium version the majority of the filters they give you for free are really nice.
And I don't write reviews for apps so the facts I'm writing one now says something great about the app
I've had no issues with it since I started using it
And they even have a Live Photo mode for when you're done with making a video!
Prequel is one of my favorite apps to use I highly recommend it :)
•bubble tea• - PLEASE REPLY. (why is this happening?)
when I first got this app, everything was working perfectly fine. I haven’t used it in a few months but now I have a perfect reason so I can use your filters. It was stuck on the loading screen for HOURS, I literally SLEPT through the morning, waiting for it work. it was very frustrating, I haven’t used it months after that incident, so right now I’m using. I’m a bit nervous to try it again because after deleting the app and downloading it again, it wouldn’t work. please reply.
nch120 - Reverse this ridiculous update!
1 Star for the new update. As someone who pays to use this app, I’m extremely disappointed in this new update. And I’m not the only one. As paying customers we should be able to choose which format we want our videos cropped. Bring back squares and feed crops. Not every user wants their videos automatically cropped for a story or a tik tok or a reel. It makes 0 sense to just take away the option to have your video be a square. May cancel my membership if it doesn’t change. So dissatisfied. It’s sad cause overall this is a great app. Whoever thought the update was a good idea has no clue what they are doing.
Broke Lil Hooman - A++ if you ask me
This app is so easy to function. You can edit your own pictures or create videos on here. Although some of the filters and effects need you to pay for them, the free effects are amazing. I would definitely recommend it to friends and family. If your planning on downloading it I say go for it. It has a variety of effects and things and they are really cute and fun. 👍💜
TittyBopper - plz fix this
As much as i would love to give this app a 5 star rating but there’s just this one problem... every time i import my fan edit videos to prequel to use the effects it lags and glitches so bad! at first it wasn’t really noticeable but this time is worse i tried restarting the app but it didn’t work and i know the glitches and lags aren’t coming from the edit video i had made prior to opening the app. can you guys plz fix this? i love this app soooo much :)
_TheSeason_ - Sketchy and Concerning...
When i open the app, i’m told to accept both of the terms in order to use the app. One of the terms is to have my data shared with third parties. I don’t WANT my data shared, especially with third parties. Second of all, why do you need access to my camera and microphone? Isn’t access to my photo album enough? You definitely don’t need my microphone for editing photos I already have, so i don’t know why it’s required. It’s sad, really. I like this app but i don’t feel like it’s safe. What’s with all of these stupid requirements? Be careful before downloading this app, people.
JordynLLin - Needs fixes
Love this app it’s very easy to navigate and I love all the effects and filters. I am always happy with the outcome of my photos but every time I used this app and try to save the edited version of my photo to my camera roll the photo will not save. I’ll click the check mark and it will show a black screen instead of my picture. I have to refresh the app multiple times before my actual picture will save but by the third or fourth time I normally just give up and switch to a different app. I didn’t have this problem when I first downloaded the app.
Geo.exe - Some Bugs...
The app is amazing, runs extremely well and make my videos look flawless. But every time a video is done with cropping, and has the filter on it. The audio seems to be off with the video entirely... the audio would play, but the video would be close to 1 sec behind. I would love if the developers would fix this bug, so that I can enjoy this app even more than I already do.
mitsuhoney - Great App But Locks You Out Of Certain Filters
The improvements they made to the app really help navigate it better, thank you so much! However, two stars are deducted because I think it is completely unfair to force users to follow their social media just to unlock specific filters. Seriously?! I already pay the annual fee to unlock the features and you want to lock a feature behind a forced follow? I don’t have TikTok so I’m pretty much screwed out of specific filters. Please change that because that’s some serious BS!
HM.xx - This app is amazing but..
I saw people using this app on tiktok and wanted to try it out. I downloaded it, took some pictures for IG and it was AMAZING. You can do videos and put filters with sparkles on it and everything! I made a anime edit for funimate. i was gonna post it in there, but i wanted to see if i can put some cool filters on it. I tried it and it was okay, But the size was all messed up and made the video weird. If you have a rectangular size video i wouldn’t suggest using this app for it.
93octane - Posting.
This literally has nothing wrong with it whatsoever. It’s just the posting, little kids could be using this and not know how to post anything and maybe accidentally show their faces when they didn’t mean to. Personally, I’ve had no problem with this, all I choose is to save it to my camera roll and be done with it and close out the app until I use it next. The posting problem has taken away 2 stars from my ratings and if you fix it I will put the two stars back.
Alin Vazquez - It doesn’t let me download it
This app is very good and like I love it but I downloaded the app once but then my little sister had my phone to play games and i think she deleted the app and now that i try to download it it doesn’t let me. It doesn’t let me even click the button it just grey. I thought it was cuz I had a lot of apps and I deleted like 5 apps and it still didn’t let me down load it🥺
slenderlife323 - Saving issue
My mom had paid for me to get more iCloud storage and I deleted all my prequel photos and more but yet when I’m saving the video it glitches. It won’t bring me to the screen where you can save the video. I think it’s bc of my storage but my mom paid so idk what’s happening. It’s getting really annoying and stressing now. Cause even when I try screen recording a sign will pop up saying “Screen recording has stopped due to: insufficient storage for recording.” If you know, then please tell what’s going on with my device cause whatever it is, is annoying.
iwroteareviewyay - I’m going to kill this app
I tried using the app multiple times, I closed the app and reopened it, I deleted the app and redownloaded it, I even restarted my whole phone. But this app has crashed on me over twenty times. Sometimes I can’t even get past the loading screen without it kicking me out. It used to work great and I love the filters and effects but it’s completely useless when I can’t even open the thing. I can’t get through editing a single photo without getting kicked out of the app and it’s incredibly frustrating. I’ve never written a review before but I’m so infuriated with this stupid thing I actually wrote one.
Doriane Dongo - Great Quality
I’m amazed and satisfied by this app especially since they have gotten rid of the watermarks which give is very good for the experience for the other people who use this app. I have used VHS filters for my TikToks and they have turned out very impressive by my opinion. I’m amazed and satisfied and sure the others will be, I can not wait for the new IOS features and amazing filters in the future!!!!!
🤍🤍🦋🦋✌️✌️😌😌 - AMAZING!!
This is an amazing editing app!! Me and my friends were looking for an app to edit on and we found this and the filters are absolutely amazing!! And almost everything is unlocked which is one of the main reasons why I love of it most other edit apps make you pay for everything! I definitely recommend this its a really good app for editing pictures and videos :)
kayla liv - Really good except one problem
I absolutely love it & I never used to have problems with it except just recently whenever I use the vhs effect on my videos it glitches at the end by pausing the video for a few seconds & blinks black for a few seconds in the beginning of my video & I have tried it over & over again with different videos & ive also tried leaving the app & going back in but nothing has helped please fix that!!!
jessuhrose - New update is lame
My phone updated all my apps, and as I was getting on prequel to edit a video I was going to add music(which was a free feature) & now is telling me to purchase the song through iTunes... I only need about 15-30 seconds for most of my videos and now I have to buy the whole song just to add it. I really wish the app never got updated as I enjoyed adding music to my videos/pictures hassle free as we already pay for the app itself now the music too... overall I enjoy the application just wish you didn’t get iTunes involved..
hanakinskyguy - Longer videos and different width options.
I love the app but I use it to edit videos that i post to various social medias, mostly Twitter. I've stopped using it recently because any video that I want to be a wide shot + longer than a minute (which has become most of them lately) is one that I have to edit elsewhere because the app forces the square crop and doesn't support more than a minute of footage :/ I would go back to using Prequel if it were to accommodate the length and size of my edits, though.
Strawberryshortcakeangel - Unrivaled Photo/Video App
This app is far beyond the price you pay for. This app competes with the templates in Unfold, colors in Vsco, flawless face editing in Face-tune, and overall INSANE, FAST, video editing for Instagram stories and business. I can’t believe this app is free to download. They are working HARD, and I am so happy this app is available. Been a user for almost two years and just frankly a huge fan! Love you guys!
Kyliethepopular - slight problems
So I love this app and it’s great for editing and its my go-to editing app. But lately it’s been acting weird. First time it stuck on the I guess we can call it the “beginning” part where it says prequel be creative and reveal yourself” then I deleted it then downloaded it back. It worked this time and didn’t stick on that one specific part. It went to where it says “ Welcome to Prequel! The most outstanding effects!” And it stuck on that! If you could get back to me VERY SOON so I can know what is going on.
Alexis Cooooperman - Why pay every single week?
I absolutely love this app and the filters on it! The one thing that’s making me stick with 4 stars and not 5 is that you have you pay in order to remove the watermark. I understand if you have to pay in order to have some filters but you have to pay every single week, I think it’d be so much better and successful if we were to pay all in one and not have to every single week
dogs1538240 - amazing so far!
Your app is really nice but one thing I ask is if you could take some color off the effects! because sometimes it ruins the color of the video so I can’t use it. This is one of my top favorite editing apps but I have another one for color and I would appreciate it if you took off some color of the effects. Hope you have a great day! Also I would appreciate if you made more affects without text.
emmariajd - I LOVE THIS APP BUT HELP
Been using and have been paying for a subscription to remove the watermark, and I LOVE IT!
The only problem I’ve had is my app stopped saving my videos... it says that it’s exporting but it never saves into my camera roll or even brings up the option to save. Hopefully this bug can be fixed quickly because I hate not being able to edit content!
Cupcakecult93 - It’s pretty good
So like I downloaded this app and it’s pretty sick. The free stuff is still sick as hecc. My only request and gripe is that you don’t have a one time purchase option? I’ve paid a one time $70 on some photo editing apps so that I could just get all the stuff without having to worry about canceling a subscription. I like it but I think adding a one time purchase to access all the features would be amazing. Please consider it 🥺👉🏻👈🏻
Error4472658265 - stopped working
First of all I think $5 a week for a photo editing app is ridiculous. I rarely pay for apps but I would consider spending the money if it was a one time purchase. I still think the free version has plenty of available filters and features so I enjoy the app anyway and use it often, especially since the watermark has been removed. Recently the app has been completely unusable, it takes forever to load and then crashes as soon as I try to take or upload a picture. It’s really frustrating and disappointing and I hope it’s fixed soon.
🍪 Priscilla M.🍪 - Love the app! but a little bug
So I got the new update and I have an fp (....strawberry..sunkin on TikTok) and I went to adjust and it sharped the video and blurred the video and added a little glow and nothing showed. I saved it to my camera roll and still nothing showed. I even went out and went back in and still didn’t show! I even deleted the app and installed it again! Still doesn’t show up! Could you please fix this?!🥺
🤠👍😍🐕💋🍊 - It’s really good!
This app is really fun and cool, and it’s also really easy to use. It has some really cool filters where i can snap a cute pic or download an awesome video. It’s really good be you can not only download the videos and it’s to your photos you can also download them to insta, Snapchat, and Tik tok!
I love this app so muchhhh. The only reason I didn’t rate it a full 5 star is by you can’t get some of the great filters but I can manage. I fully recommend this app
tt779 - App doesn’t always save work.
I’ve been using the app for a little while, and there have been numerous times where after finishing editing a picture of video, i would go to click the check and i would hit save and nothing happens, then i hit the check again and it ask me if i want to save it or not and when i hit yes it never does. i’ve been having to screen record what i’ve done and crop and save and i don’t want to keep doing this.
could this get fixed PLEASEE!?
