User Reviews for Filmic Legacy

At the very least

I appreciate that they at least gave us what we originally paid for. I am a casual user and won’t benefit from the continued updates. But I didn’t appreciate how one day I tried to use the app and suddenly it tells me I can’t export. I wasted time filming. It would’ve been better if you develop a new App and then price it new. By piggybacking on previous users, that was kind of a typical corporate dirty move to force market the new product. I’m rating the business practice, and I don’t rate it lower because at least we have Legacy. Otherwise, I would boycott everything. But this gives me pause now about any product I get at the App Store, the fact that developers can use such a dirty tactic.

New Subscription Model is TERRIBLE!

I paid for the Filmic Pro V6 app in 2017 and have loved using it ever since. It has been my default for taking videos since I purchased it as it once was the best video app that could be bought. Now they lock the new features behind a subscription wall cost $1.99 a week or $40 A YEAR!!! This is outrageous! I Hate that this app has now moved to a subscription model with no option to purchase the software! Why couldn’t they leave V6 alone and release V7 as a different app but no!! If you update Filmic Pro, it forces you to move to V7, then one has to jump through hoops to download the legacy version and move footage back to the legacy version. I get that you can’t keep supporting V6 long term without gaining additional revenue, but switching to a subscription model, for $40 a year! Why can we just buy V7 for $15 or $20 once and not have to pay yearly! That would at least be better than continuing to pay for a tool. I don’t have to pay every year to use my Sony camera, nor do I pay to pay every year to use the default camera app, ProCam or another app. At the very least past customers should have the ability to pay once for V7 and use it until V8 comes. I get that you have the right to make this move, but I also have the right to use something else which I might have to do. This was a disgusting way to go about releasing an upgrade!

Prompt and Professional

I panicked. I had a trip to Boston on Filmic Pro v6. I woke up to the upgrade v7. I reached out to Filmic support and they responded to both my emails with detailed instructions and kindness. Am I a subscription type person. No. Yet I respect that this app isn’t my creation and the creators are free to do with it as they please. The rude comments are out of bounds. You can get your footage transferred to Filmic Legacy without a real big hassle. If I itemized my taxes, a subscription would most likely be the way to go. I’m in education so I prefer the “pay once” options.

Not as advertised

This is a scam. I previously paid for Filmic Pro long ago. When I try to access it now, it tells me I can download Filmic Legacy (v6.0). When I do that, Filmic Legacy tells me I have to download Filmic Pro (v7.0), then go to Settings>Info>Download Filmic Legacy. However, the only way to get that far is to commit to at least a one week free trial for the subscription. So, I did that, navigated to Download Filmic Legacy … which I did … and then was told I had to download Filmic Pro (v7.0) … which I already did to download Filmic Legacy that tells me to go back to download Filmic Pro in order to download Filmic Legacy … which I already have on my iPad. So, it is either subscribe to an app that I have previously paid for or get stuck in a loop never being able to download an app that I was told I would still be able to use with no further charges. THIS IS A SCAM!!

Disappointing that you decided to switch to a subscription model

Well, this is a new and annoying development.I now have to get an unmaintained legacy app after supporting your app and company version after version, and now am FORCED into a subscription model that I don't want and can't stand. And it is overly expensive for an app that I use for special circumstances. A shame, as you have lost a paying customer, and judging by your recent reviews, you lost A LOT of paying customers.And the little you've done to retain your once paying customers, is really a slap in the face. How about a discount for the long term customers who have been with you since version 1? How about grandfathering in those repeat paying users? Nope, would rather taking advantage of the customer base, and locking features behind an INSANE subscription model like other terrible companies.Well, congratulations Filmic, you've arrived— you're just as terrible as everyone else. Jacking up prices during a recession, offering little to justify doing so, and seriously upsetting a large portion of your user base.Bra-Vo. You played yourself and pivoted to being another in a long string of companies flushing customer goodwill down the toilet.Good luck. You won't be doing it with my money.

App was acquired and became a subscription model bait and switch

This is positively nauseating. One of the best video apps in the history of the App Store has pivoted into a subscription scam model to squeeze recurring revenue from people no matter how much they actually use the thing.How wonderful, one of my favorite tools has been turned into a SERVICE that people can REPEATEDLY pay for if they want version updates. Oh, and very cute, users who purchased this tool back when it was a tool and not a SERVICE get to download this sneaky always-unlocked version of the app. Hooray for me and past owners. Downright gross for future users.I can’t believe an app and development team I had the utmost respect for and who I felt had the utmost respect for their users would make such a greedy, frustrating, backwards and upsetting decision. This app was once truly wonderful. However, I will never recommend it to another living soul as long as the team continues in this anti-consumer, anti-creativity new direction. Shameful, unexpected, and so very sad.

No Response *updated

2/2/23- After years of use I reached out to support to address an audio clipping issue that has been ongoing intermittently. They’ve always responded promptly in the past, and did so this time requesting certain information that I painstakingly gathered and provided. Then, about a month ago now, they just ghosted me. We know where their priorities lie with this ridiculous V7 service roll out. I guess those of us on legacy don’t matter anymore.4/9/23 update from 1 to 4 stars- Last month FilMic customer service finally followed up with me. Not sure what happened, but the guy was apologetic and more importantly did a deep dive on my issues. That’s all I can ask for. Even offered a year free of the subscription app, but I actually prefer the legacy version.

Don’t like but understand.

As a business owner I understand that work requires some sort of monetization to keep the lights on. Maybe the real mistake was not to plan on years coming and the one-time price for the app was not the best way to go from the start, especially being so expensive (for an app), but to me it was worth it. However I understand money has to be made and people have to get paid to keep working so I don’t sense any bad intentions, just time catching up. I have bought apps AND devices before, like my Apple Watch 3 which no longer updates but gives me all the features I originally paid for, so I feel like what I spent on Filmic years ago has already given me my moneys’ worth and then some. Still unsure how much I will use v7 as I am now more of a casual user but really appreciate the fact they gave us v6 to use freely.

Realizing that every company needs to make money - your app was not cheap (as apps go) So you “update” the app I paid for and 𝒚𝒐𝒖 advertised as being a “one-time-purchase.” Now, thanks to your avarice, I can’t use the app unless I buy a subscription.Shameless exploitation.And yes, I already heard, I can download the legacy version - a version that is not designed to be updated, one for which you plan no support. Had I and countless others (check your reviews here and other review forums) known you were planning this, 𝒘𝒆 𝒘𝒐𝒖𝒍𝒅 𝒉𝒂𝒗𝒆 𝒔𝒑𝒆𝒏𝒕 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒎𝒐𝒏𝒆𝒚 𝒚𝒐𝒖 𝒇𝒓𝒂𝒖𝒅𝒖𝒍𝒆𝒏𝒕𝒍𝒚 𝒂𝒄𝒒𝒖𝒊𝒓𝒆𝒅 𝒇𝒓𝒐𝒎 𝒖𝒔, 𝒆𝒍𝒔𝒆𝒘𝒉𝒆𝒓𝒆. Like on “Beast Cam”, or “Moment”, or “Protake.”Bait and switch… and there’s not “thing one” any of us can do about it. It’s too late to dispute the initial purchase from the App Store.Congratulations on finding the perfect way to steal from your customers… in plain sight… without repercussions.If you were smarter, you would have 𝒓𝒆-released this app with a new name. But then you wouldn’t have had a ready made base of people you could try and double sell to… or your coveted “Editor’s Choice” status.I see you Filmic Inc and your parent company Bending Spoons. Your business practices are reprehensible, I’m disgusted. And you should read some of the Reddit posts of people who also think you are criminals.

Developers can do what they like in terms of licensing but they should be forthcoming

When you licensed the tool, it is one time payment and now it is service based and you have to pay every week whether you use it or not. It may be good for some and certainly not good for others. Most companies got into this service model driven by financial analysts or VCs to get better valuation by showing more recurring revenue instead of providing value and being innovative; big companies that can monopolize have monopolized and got away but smaller ones that go with service model as “me too” should think twice as their culture is innovation and value creation to attract customers but not jerk around customers.
