Does not work. 1/5
I paid for the upgrade and it used to work fine. Seems like the latest Apple update has shut down the App. Disappointing.
Updated doesn’t work 1/5
Doesn’t work anymore whatsoever can’t access my camera roll
Blank screen, then crashes 1/5
Worked for a few day. Now, a blank screen shows up on startup and then it crashes after a few seconds. No support on their site.
Not Free 1/5
This is not a free app. They charge you to remove the watermark.
Doesn’t work 1/5
By Hidden Lyric
I bought this app wanting to post my live photos on my instagram, but after several unsuccessful attempts the app only posted really low quality photos of my live photo. I could not turn my live photo into a gif or movie. Im extremely disappointed in this app after reading many positive reviews. A big waste of money.
App not opening after purchase 1/5
I was super excited about this app, but after purchasing, it stopped working altogether and I cannot find any app support on the website link. I would appreciate either a refund or support to help get this working, thanks.
gif quality extremely low 1/5
The gif option turns a crystal clear Live Photo into a blurry imitation
Lively giff 1/5
Terrible App doesn’t work and they screw u out of money
As much as i would like to leave a positive review, how can I, when it simply doesn’t work? I paid for the full version and it only takes a few photos from my camera roll. I wrote to the company for help and no one responded. A shame because the app is beautifully designed and works well—for the couple of pics i could use for it.
App is unnecessary when you can send Live Photo in regular sms and save that as it auto-converts to an even higher quality gif without a watermark. I regret paying to get watermark removed literally 5 seconds after paying.
This was by far one of my favorite apps for a while but as of the past few months it’s been glitching a lot and not allowing my full camera roll to upload. This is one of the only apps I’ve paid for and needless to say I think I pretty much wasted my money because I can no longer use it. I hope things get fixed soon.
Keeps Crashing 3/5
By Alien Zombie
I used to love this app! It was perfect for creating gifs but now it won’t even stay open. It opens for only a moment and crashes. My app is up-to-date, and I’ve run all the usual fixes. I’m running the app on a iPhone 7+ please fix!
Love it! 5/5
A must have!
I don’t understand 2/5
Trying to turn a Live Photo into a Gif- it worked sooo can see it in my camera roll, and I can even text it to someone, but it won’t play the Gif in an Instagram post or. Facebook post. Am I doing something wrong? Disappointed.
Great App 5/5
This is fantastic app.
Not for Instagram 1/5
Simmer your expectations if plan to post on Instagram with the movie option. You need a 3 sec clip to post. Lively only exports a 2 second clip. I should have done my research a little better. Bye bye $2.99
Why wont my photos update 1/5
I can't seem to see photos I've take after 6 months ago 😒
Extremely disappointed. 1/5
I am so disappointed in this app. After paying to remove the watermark, I found that I am unable to save the gifs I create to my camera roll. When I try and save, it only saves a low quality picture. I am encountering the same issue when I try sharing it and then saving from the external app. Lively, please find a way to fix this asap.
Love it 5/5
By Telco mbr
Nothing bad to say about this. Love it!
Not good for instagram 2/5
It’s a great app if you don’t intend to put the gif on Instagram or if you like having their logo attached to the bottom of it.....
Low quality videos 3/5
It’s a good app, but if you try to post the newly made video on Instagram the quality is diminished.
Love it 5/5
Great app 5/5
As a photographer that likes to dabble in video I love this app. You can grab a frame from a live photo, turn it into a gif or mov. Adjust the speed and you have a nice little file. If you've ever played with the boomerang app, you know how dysfunctional it is to use. You have to time everything perfect as your taking it and then it takes a few seconds to save (making sure you miss your next shot). Now I just shoot with Live Photos and am pleasantly surprised about how much information was actually captured.
Won't load photos past the day I first downloaded the app. 1/5
I've tried deleting and redownloading, saving the photos as favorites, restarting my phone - NOTHING WORKS. I can't see any photos newer than the first day I download this app. What a waste.
Perfect for toddlers 5/5
This app is the best when taking photos of squirmy toddlers lol
Still problematic 3/5
The app does not recognize all my photos. It's the same group available as before the new update. I'm sorry I bought the app.
Update: The app now works as it is supposed to. I had some email exchanges with one of the developers and then support disappeared. Today by accident I launched the app and it works.
Great if you have kids 5/5
I use this app to fix photos of my kids.
It’s that good. 5/5
I don’t rant and rave how good an app is. This one is great if you have an iPhone and want to strip frames out of the LIVE picture. Also for making little movies or ani gifs. It’s a must have for the iPhone shutterbug!
great app! works every time! 5/5
amaze balls 5/5
By Woof 2
so cool. makes me so happy to be able to put my live photos together into a video collage
One major flaw 4/5
I use this app constantly. Every time I have a live photo that doesn't choose the best frame, I use lively to get the better one. The one major flaw, however, is a significant loss of color quality. I have to go into a different app to attempt to recreate the same saturation/exposure that was in my original photo.
Does just what it says 5/5
intuitive and works well.
Best app to export live photos! 5/5
By Jes Perilla
This is my most cherished app! Never had an issue with it and always does an amazing job of exporting gifs, frames or videos. A must download for all photographers and photo lovers!!!
Great app 4/5
Love the app, although the GIFs aren't high quality. Watermarks on your gif/video is also annoying.
Bugs fixed, indispensable 5/5
By Michelle Cohrene
They fixed their iCloud photo problems and it’s nice and speedy now (on my 6s). I love live photos and can’t imagine not being able to pick the best frame (though apparently that is native in iOS11 photos now) or more frequently, make adorable gifs of my cats. 😂
Perfect shot 5/5
With Lively, I always get the perfect shot - even when I just miss it!
Great App 5/5
Simple to use, good quality. Just trying to figure out how to turn off sound when covering.
Was good 3/5
I thought this was a great app before I purchased it. I purchased it to remove the watermark and once I did it no longer allowed me to export any images. Now this app is useless to me.... I hope there is an update that fixes this soon.
So great for pet photos 5/5
By Alicia M.H.
I work at an animal hospital and we are constantly trying to take pictures of wiggly pets. This app is a time saver! Our clients love the photos we extract from the live photos and the funny gifs we make of their pets. I recommend this app to everyone!
Good app 5/5
Does what it's supposed to
Fun but wish there was more functionality in movie editor 4/5
This app is fun and easy to use. It allows you to "freeze" Live Photos into still photos at whatever moment you choose.
I just wish the movie feature had a little more functionality. I would like to be able to reverse movies and make boomerang movies as this app allows you to do for gifs.
Can't live without it. 4/5
By Saint Christy
I downloaded three apps to cut out the best and clearest pictures out of my live photos. This is by far the winner. Simple enough for a four year old, it also will make gifs and movies out of your live photos so you can send them to people that don't have iphones, computers, or even old style phones. I would give it 10 stars if it had a bigger screen to see your photos on! Guys, you Rock!!
Great app 5/5
Fills the gap 5/5
By George Ledbetter
I have found this application to be extremely helpful. It allows sharing a video clip immediately. Also it enables the live feature and the header feature of Apple photos. Doing so in the photos app, it is somewhat difficult.
By Wick's mom
I love this app! Simple to use and works every time. Thanks so much!!!!!
Exporting gifs doesn't seem to work 3/5
Is it just me or does exporting a gif only give you one frame? I want to make animated gifs and loops but when I export there's nothing. And I can't seem to make 3D Touch do anything. Maybe I'm doing something wrong...
I do like that I can edit live videos and export movies though.
Love finding the perfect frame! 5/5
Love this app and paid the extra $2.99. Well worth it!
great app BUT... 3/5
really good app for live photos BUT i wish since we're already paying almost $3 for it, we should be able to edit videos as well. i have to download and purchase another video editing app instead of just having it all in one.
Love it but..... 3/5
By Bubs biggest fan
I started out really loving this app! Especially with a baby this helps to always get a pic with her looking or smiling! But recently I've been having issues where my pictures from my library are not showing up... only pictures I took over a month ago. Help! I want to love this app again but don't know how to fix it! I've even tried reinstalling it.
