App of the Day for Friday, Dec 22, 2017

It's 1984, and you've got a VHS camcorder! It'll look that way when you record and send old, messed up-looking retro videos to friends. They'll swear you built a time machine: "OMG, how'd you shoot that?"

With Rarevision VHS, you'll make videos that look and sound like real retro video tapes pulled out of storage after 30 years. You can change the on-screen date to trick your friends, create custom animated titles, glitch up the picture by shaking your device and use the fake zoom to emphasize those truly embarrassing moments!

"That's freakin' amazing!" -Everyone

Here's Why You Need It:

• Four words: Best. Throwback. Videos. Ever.
• Create VHS-style retro videos of your kids that look like the ones from your childhood
• The only VHS cam app you should ever consider to capture your 80s and 90s-themed parties
• Shoot your own "found footage" movie and become a big Hollywood director like those other guys
• Make your kids' incredibly boring school plays actually rad
• Impress the new girl by using our app to convince her you built a time machine
• Pretend like you lived through the rad 1980s using our app!

What Rarevision VHS Can Do:

• Realism: the ORIGINAL and BEST VHS cam app for simulating the glitches of old videotape recordings
• Import videos from Camera Roll and give them the VHS look
• Create your own animated titles for the ultimate in on-screen awesomeness
• Change the on-screen date so people think you're way younger--or older--than you really are
• Glitch the picture during recording using your finger or by shaking your device
• Fake zoom feature dramatically enhances the cheese factor
• Don't think we forgot to make things sound retro terrible (we didn't)
• Widescreen recording option (but would you REALLY want to use it?)
• Share videos to Instagram, Facebook and YouTube using Camera Roll
• Up to 60p recording for a more accurate VHS video look (depends on device capability)
• HD video recording on iPhone 4s and newer devices (1080p requires iPhone 5 or better)

This app is will make your worst video into something amazing!!!

- Cool

It great but I just wish loading was faster to view videos.

- vhs.

hi is there a way i can get a higher quality for vhs because they filter makes my videos very blurry? can you help me fix that ?

- Most realistic

I’ve tried several VHS apps.. But this ones my favorite. I think this is the most accurate/realistic to genuine VHS.

- Jenny027

I love it

- Amazing

I love it , this app is everything and more !!

- Lovely


- great!

it’s an amazing app 100% worth it!

- Like it

I think it is very cool

- Good app for vhs edits

I love this app and in my opinion is the best app for vhs edits

- Please

I want better camera & sound quality.

- I want my money back

I don’t like it I want my money back . And plus I don’t know how to work this app .


App is great for vlogs

- love love love !

i love it :)

- Really nice, but for a paid app still not perfect

I really love this app. I got the free version and decided to buy the full version without even trying all the features, I was so impressed. I mainly got this to edit videos, and while it definitely works for that, it’s way easier to edit while you record in-app. The interface just doesn’t work well for editing. I understand that they want to keep a retro feel to it, but it’s kind of impractical. For example, when you import a clip to edit, it plays the whole thing kind of in fast-forward and you have to choose when to use the title button or the glitch feature before the clip ends, when it’s automatically saved. So I end up with five or six videos to delete after I finish editing, because I’m not given a choice about saving the clips I’m not happy with. Also you have to choose a filter from the menu before you import the clip, and you can only see the filters when you apply them to the camera. Meaning if it were daytime but i was editing a clip I filmed in the nighttime, I can only see how the filter looks in the daytime. It would be nice if you could see how a filter looks on your video before you decide to save it. Obviously the great things about this app outweigh all of that stuff which is why I gave it 4 stars. My favorite thing about this app is the way the camera reacts when you move. I don’t know what you call it, but it looks JUST like the way people moved with those retro VHS camcorders. Like, they move first and the camera follows. Obviously doesn’t happen with super light smartphones, so that just makes the videos look that much more retro and interesting. So awesome. The filters are also incredible and I love all the glitch features. This is starting to become one of the only apps I use for video recording and editing. That being said, it would really take it to the next level if the interface made editing preexisting clips easier. If this were just the free version I would understand, but I kind of hoped a better editing interface would come along with the pro version. I don’t have a ton of storage on my phone so when I take videos of myself skating it’s way easier to airdrop them to my iPad and edit from there.

- please read my review

Is there a higher quality for vhs bc my videos are coming out a little blurry please respond and help me fix that, and i would like to know if there can be quality improvements for camera and import please and thank you .

- ‼️‼️

Amazing app ! It’s totally worth your time and money. and I never write reviews so that should say something

- Awesome

This is a great app! I’ve never actually reviewed one before but I felt I needed to review this app because it really impressed me. The effect is convincing, and I love being able to control the quality of the video by dragging up and down. I also love the ability to be able to import videos, (though it would be nice to be able to import from google drive, but I can just download it to camera roll so it doesn’t really matter). It’s a great app!

- 11 Ultrawide support?

Hi I love the VHS app, though I was hoping to use my iPhone 11’s ultrawide angle lens to capture some fish eye VHS. Is this not possible?

- it’s worth it

it can do anything it’s worth it don’t care

- App crashes and is stuck

I bought the app when I open it to record it’s stuck on a still image it’s funny because the demo version works fine it’s the full version that is stuck. How do I get a refund

- Hopefully I can use this long


- Worth the time!

It’s definitely worth the time, and good for video effects.

- Awesome


- Vhs

It’s amazing Tbh

- Retro Revival Done Right!!

Miss recording party’s, family functions and the occasional crude prank at low resolution with tracking issues?!? This is the app to fill that nostalgic void in your social life! Except no substitutes.

- it’s a really good app

worth the money!!!

- Very good

I like it it looks nice and has cool features and is very user friendly

- Great app for vhs filtering

I love this app. It works very well and allows me to edit videos I love it

- It’s awesome

But it freezes up when you start it up

- :)

it’s great



- I love this app!!

It’s a great retro editing app I love the app !!

- cool


- ❤️❤️❤️

Love this app

- Very good. Except the imports

Literally everything else in the app is perfect except the imports. When i try to import a video it doesn’t match the audio and video. But above all that, the app is perfect. Maybe it’s just user error, but i’m not going to rate any better until the problem is fixed.

- It’s amazing!

if you’re hesitating on paying for this it is worth the pay!! i use this app a lot and it’s easy to use. the filters are everything! definitely worth my money.

- fun to use!!

it’s just really fun to use and mess with, definitely fits ugly people who want to look more interesting (me) lol great app tho.

- The editing process goes too fast

I wish we had the option to use the filter/vhs at our own pace. It goes way too fast and you end up having to rush to press the button however many times throughout the video. If it just went at the normal pace or we at least had an option too, it would definitely be a 5 star app.

- I love it, it just need some improvement

Honestly i love this app, it just needs to load faster & have all formats included *if that makes sense*

- Amazinggg 🥺

So good it looks great on my edits

- Vhs love

I decided to buy a real vhs camera on eBay and ended up with several duds and people selling non tested cameras. Didn’t realize I had this on my phone and started using this app religiously for YouTube ideas. This is a perfect solution and looks amazing like the real thing. I was born in the 80’s and had vhs camera my self so take it from the OG!!

- One of my favorites !!!

I am into video editing and this app takes away so much stuff I used to have to do to make my videos look this way

- 😻😻😻

Greattt app!!

- top

i love it

- crashing

crashes so freaking annoying

- Great app

Great app

- Great App ! !

Love this app. It actually makes you feel like you’re in the 80’s n 90s.

- This app is 🔥🔥

So I use this app for editing and this app great to use

- Rare Vision VHS app

This app is where it’s at. If you are one who misses the old school VHS camcorders, then this will certainly appeal to your sensibilities. It is totally worthy of a five-star rating, indeed.

- amazing

price doesn’t matter when it’s an app like this, amazing edits were made when i downloaded

- Surprisingly worth it

ngl i was sus about this app and how pricey it was, but i took the risk, n honestly it’s AMAZING! Worth the money, you could do a lot even tho it seems u can’t, but u rlly can. I recommend this app for that vintage, old skool vibes! Oh n they fixed the glitches, everything works great for me, i have a iphone X.

- I love

It’s great

- Amazing

It actually works but I’m having problems where when I insert a video it turns it a different direction

- Noice!!!

The truest and best version of a VHS quality app I have used. The paid version also has lots of features and filters that are truly worth it!!!!

- Incredible!!

Full version well worth the price.

- Great App

I love the fact that you pay once, no subscription nonsense. Great app, easy to use.

- Problem recording long videos

I love the app, but when I important bigger files or longer videos, or even record long videos, it just gives and error and asks me if my storage is full. It’s not even close to full. Kinda wish I could record long videos :/ otherwise it’s a great app

- pls

very good for my edits

- terrible

i keep trying to delete this app and it keeps coming back 😭

- Good good.

Good good.

- good for vintage looking filmz


- I like it

I like it a lot

- I enjoy.

Simply to use and very funny. One downside is that it will crash with certain imports of videos from your camera roll. Other than that I love this app!

- Great


- fire

trust me, fireeee

- Importing videos is completely broken

Every time I import a video it crops it and cuts out a whole bunch of content. Broken app yet it costs so much

- Rating

Cool app overall

- ❤️

a good app ;)

- Amazing

I wasn’t sure if it was worth the price because when I saw 5$ for a VHS app my jaw dropped . But it’s worth it it works so well it looks just like the filters that people use for the VHS instagram edits this is honestly worth the money and I recommend, the people that complain about it crashing probably have a trash phone .. sorry bruh🥺.

- Great App

uwu its amazing 🥺

- Love it

Loving this app. The Negative filter is trippy

- Fantastic and Fun!

This is a great application! I’ve been using it for over a year now, and I have zero complaints! It’s easy to use and understand, and the effects are very well done! Please don’t pass this app by, it’s excellent!

- Two things

Super gr8 First thing is I feel like we should be able to upload photos rather than just videos Second thing is I think it would be cooler if we could put it back past 1984 even tho it doesn’t make sense I still want to lol

- Great app

I honestly love this app so much. You can customize your fps and a bunch of other things. It’s really does a good job at hovering the whole vintage vibe

- Great

Awesome app

- Perfect

I love it 🙌

- Great app

Great app.

- Simply fantastic!!!

I can’t get over how accurate this is! So freaky! Love it!!!

- Idfk

It would be nice if I could switch the effects right on the screen instead of having to go to another screen, other than that I really like the app

- Love it!

Great app ! Would love if I could record the device’s audio like Snapchat and also if I could search the albums in my camera roll when importing.

- Epic

I had to buy this as soon as i got the free version its so cool

- Love it

I didn’t think it was worth buying this app till I noticed you could put your own words, like I needed an app that did that. Thanks really love it

- From ‘88 to infinity

Take your 4K HD monoliths and new fandangled wi-fi enabled short circuits away. Keep it funky n fresh like Johnny 5, cause this is alive with Hi-Fi!

- fire

love it

- Great app, you should allow wide angle support for 11Pro users!


- Phenomenal

Amazing app that works perfectly...also, premium is worth the $5

- Love it

My favourite app

- Amazing

1000 stars

- True nostalgia 🌄

This is a true authentic vhs filter like I remember back in my childhood ! Super realistic ! The only thing I would add would be maybe more in-depth features to adjust the amount of video and audio-glitchs. Also a green color for the text font would be awesome !

- .

Good app but it keeps closing when I try to use it sometimes

- issue!

so, i have a question about the app. when i try to import a video to add the filter over it, the app changes the size of the video to portrait mode. the setting in the menu doesn’t do anything to help either way, and it sizes the video completely wrongly for what i want to do with it. help?

- Awesome RarevisionVHS app!

I recommend this app it’s the best vhs and the most realistic one out there although I don’t like how they changed the price to five dollars because it used to be $1.39 but other than that it’s sooooo amazing!!!

- Parker

I Love This App!

- Very good app but...

Works as advertised, quite realistic overall. Smooth zoom is good. Would be cool to add a 8mm film reel filter - even though it’s not a film simulating app. Also, a smearing of light sources like old tube based vhs camcorders used to do would be an awesome addition! One gripe - on iPhone 11 this app does not seem to auto focus. Could you fix this?

- My favourite app

This app is actually really great for edits thank you 😊

- Horrible: I wish i never paid for it

It freezes so often. I can barely even use it. And for the cost? Absolutely unacceptable.

- Just One Flaw

This app gives off the most realistic VHS vibe of anything I’ve tried. The only issue I have is that, while you can take pictures, you can’t import any.

- Really Nostalgic!!

This app is pretty cool and very nostalgic, I can’t wait to see more updates for it. 📹📼

- The best camera app ever made?

This is a truly beautiful app to use, using it brings me back to my child hood and for making videos set in either the 1990s or the early 2000s is a dream come true!

- It’s ok

It’s really good but often takes long to save or doesn’t save and sometimes quality isn’t good

- Good option

I was really about to buy an actual vhs off ebay but they’re too expensive and ngl this app basically met all my needs

- great

amazing app, has a lot of things to do

- VHS like no otherrrr

this app is the BOMB, whether you film video THROUGH the app or just upload videos INTO the app. worth EVERY penny, you lot can’t get this kind of visual / “filter” ANYWHERE

- Impressive

At first I thought it was a waste of £4 but it’s actually really good easy to use and it makes my edits look better to see how I use the app check ALXSHEDITS on INSTAGRAM

- :)

This app is totally worth buying I love every thing in it it’s easy to use and i recommended

- Good buh 1 ting

It does take time to load the video and when you click on it, it LAGS. but this rarely happens 😳😳

- App

Just recently downloaded this app. How do I merge different videos together from my camera roll and edit the videos into one?

- very good

100% recommend!!!!

- Great

It be good app

- Sharon x

Great app highly recommend!!💕

- Fix import issue

Great look! Shoots fine and has that classic behaviour of an cam corder. But when trying to import a video having issues and spitting it out so If you could fix that then would be amazing.

- the best vhs i’ve found

you can import videos, add filters, add titles and it’s really easy to use. downloaded this a few years back and it’s always been amazing. would 100% reccomend this app over any other vhs cams

- Found it pretty unusable

Effects look great, I upgraded to import video which is my main use but found it unusable. Videos take forever to load and then when you import one it just plays once through and goes back to live video through the camera making it unusable, disappointing

- Amazing


- Really nice quality effects

Lots of filters to choose from and worth the 💷

- Amazing App

Love this app, really authentic looking and easy to use, Forever a VHS KID 😃

- love it !

it’s so great

- Amazing App😍

Videos come out great (Always) Many different filters available. Different Camera options etc You can change the dates of the recording and add different titles.

- Great app

Great app worth paying for the full version. Read the instructions in settings.

- So good!

Looks very realistic

- Disney


- Awesome

I bought it back in 2015. The effect was ok. With the latest update the app is awesome! The effect is realistic and there are a lot of bonus features. Im very happy with it.

- so cute

i’ve only had this app a couple of days, but after one use i had worked out how to use it and everything. it’s so cute, and aesthetic, you can choose the quality of your pictures/videos on how much you want to distort them - so if anything, it’s just nice to have a “home video” style memory in your camera roll! definitely recommend. worth the money, nice to catch memories with friends, family, and holidays etc! date on video and everything:) no regrets.

- ...

It’s an amazing app, but you broke importing. When you import the video is stopped for 3 seconds as the sound is sped up ahead of the video. This completely breaks the effect of an authentic VHS recording. Other than that, it’s perfect.



- Import and file management is unusable

The best most authentic vhs filter is rendered unusable by a very very very slow file management system which makes it virtually impossible to use for anything other than creating live videos. If this is fixed, a five star review will find its way in.

- What’s her name???


- Great VHS camera

For £3.99 you get great VHS stuff! Widescreen or not, Tilt to make VHS worst or not, And more! Make fake rare tv airings if you want it in VHS quality or not, like mine Camp Lazlo on CBeebies aired on February 2019 (not on my iPad now but still) or other things, update is amazing! Bye

- vhs cam

I did love this app but the update is horrible! I really hope the change it back because the filters are really weird now :(

- Rubbish

This is awful, it’s so glitchy. You can’t upload your own videos because the app just keeps crashing

- Trash

Absolute trash. Do not waste your money on this. The most user unfriendly app I have ever purchase. Terrible.

- I can’t import my own videos

There are a lot of glitches, and i’ve paid extra for the better version where i’m supposed to be able to import my own videos but it always tells me that it can’t import and to try another time.

- Date

It’s actually really good and i’m having a lot of fun my only issue is that i have to shut off the app a lot so it doesn’t freeze and the ‘spoof your date’ doesn’t actually go before 1 March 1984 for me which is annoying and on other dates i’m not allowed certain months as well

- I use this app a lot...

I know nothing about films or cameras.. I like this for the FX

- Very good

Very good app

- Can’t rewatch or download movies

I can film them but I can’t watch them - waste of money don’t bother tbh they need to fix this glitch ASAP

- very good

very mad, never used a vhs filter before n can comfortably say i will use this app a lot throughout my life its so sick, only downside is sometimes there is a bug when you wanna switch from widescreen back to portrait, other than that it bangs.

- Excellent app easy to use

I used this app to record my first family holiday abroad with my kids, really fantastic to give the videos that classic feel to them. Hopefully it’ll give the same feeling of nostalgia in years to come as the old authentic VHS videos did.


Really good

- Rubbish

Worst app. No idea how it was voted the top one. Waste of money. Disappointing.

- Excellent app, however...

It’s great but it has trouble importing files to apply the VHS treatment. Sometimes it’ll work but mostly fails to import.

- Amazing

This is an incredible little app!

- Dope

Don’t be a skinflint, it’s worth the money! 5 stars for me!!!

- It's very accurate

It's very accurate

- Amazingly authentic 80s VHS emulation

Really looks like failing videotape ! It would be great if they could add that buzzing sound that tape makes when the tracking is out, or chewed up tape is going over the heads.

- I use this app all the time check out my channel @ dot bluer



This app is amazing and I love it so much, the only reason I wouldn’t rate 5 stars is that I wish there was different kids of vhs to choose from if that makes sense like one filter with less noise and grain like that of camcorders In the early 2000’s. Other than that this app is amazing

- Love it! Would be 6 stars if...

... absolutely love this app. I just wish you could convert existing footage on your phone. i.e. take a 4K movie you’ve already taken and convert it to VHS quality. That would be awesome. So handy for creating retro cutaways. (EDIT, don’t know if it’s new but you can import! 😀, hold down the play button to import. Fantastic! 6⭐️)

- Great Ap

Great ap, but would be even better if you could import video from the camera roll. Added feature for future release would make this ap even better!

- Needs more features, need to be able to add previously recorded videos

And it also doesn't save original footage without the vhs edit. I want to be able to add my own footage I record outside of the app. When I go to film something I don't automatically think "I want this to be in vhs"

- Please add import option

Very nice app, please add the option to import videos from camera roll :)

- Blast from the past!!!

Wow I can't explain how much I love this app. It's worth the money to buy it. Just add a couple of more things: 1. Add a title into the video recording. 2. When you fast forward and rewind you get a high pitch sound from the video can you add that please? Other than that, Great app!!

- Worth downloading

Really good quality App. App details are great. Menu system is easy to use and has some cool options. Looks really authentic and takes me back to the 80's. Get this App if your keen for something a bit different. Really good job on this one guys.

- Great app

Love this.. Would like more features like option to turn off hash

- Cool app

This app is awesome! You guys hit it in the head! Would love a night vision mood too!

- Awesome app, just like the 90's!

If you're after a nostalgia blast, check it out.

- So authentic, so awesome

Love everything about this. So much attention to detail. The colour, the distortion, and the speckles/tape artefacts are all so great. My first video creeped me the hell out. And I love the way tilting the phone messes the video up more.
