Needs fixing

Useless app until bugs are fixed. Always crashes when recording or editing videos. Not worth buying.

It’s worth $15

The best.

Really fun!

Loving the unique filters so far. Can’t wait for photo import. Please integrate the Mirrorgram/Sparkmode filters into this app. They were the best and I miss them! Thanks!

Trippy fun

No surprises that this app was created by musicians. As a pro drummer myself, I can relate to this app on a multitude of levels. I can also see potential for using it as a self-promotion tool, filtering and toying with a group video or musician headshot. Most of the negative reviews I’ve seen here seem almost whiny to me. Folks, if you want a really serious photo manipulation program you need to learn Photoshop or some other pro-level program. I see this as primarily for play, for having fun sharing crazy images with friends and through social media. Bravo, guys, I love it.


Please make this app compatible with a selfie stick camera button. Thank you much.

Photo support “coming soon”

I thought I was losing my marbles when it only gave me the option to upload pre-recorded video but nope THIS APP DOES NOT LET YOU EDIT YOUR PICS...but it’s “coming soon” per the FAQ. I’ll set remember to check the FAQ from now on, I hate being misled.

Wet dry mix would be great

I love this app but the one thing it is missing for me is a wet dry adjustment so that you can fade the opacity of the overall filter. That would be 5 star material


Needs updating

Waste of a dollar

The filters are kinda cool but it advertises as a “photo and video” app but only lets you TAKE photos, not upload existing photos. Lame.

No photo support.

Cool looking effects that you can’t put on any photo from your camera roll. Worthless.

Good but one problem...

For the time i has this app, it was amazing. I uninstalled it to clear up space on my phone and i guess it had updated since the uninstall. When I reinstalled it today, i haven’t been able to open it without it crashing at the splash screen. I’ve uninstalled, restarted my phone, and it still crashes. Hopefully the next update fixes this.

3 Stars? Really?

I think this app is incredible, especially for FREE!!! I have looked extensively for anything to help me create artistic/psychedelic videos and haven’t found anything better than this. My favorite feature is the wildcard. I scroll through effects until I find just the right one. I only wish I could save favorites from the wildcard feature, as it is now I never see them again. Better yet I wish I could buy a paid version where all the wildcard variations were available all the time. Thanks for this great app. @slackerspins on IG

Hit phone

Phone gets super hot and throttles down when trying to use effects on videos.

Not well made

I personally hate this app because it lies to you about what you can do and its not a quality photo app so thats another lie. Id know, I'm a photographer.

Crashes a lot!

Bought the app since it was released, and it worked fine. But then it started crashing everytime I export a video, 1/10 videos created crash. It’s o frustrating working on a project and all goes to waste. The developers don’t even respond to my mails. I love the app, but it’s unfortunately broken for me.

Listen to your customers

Very useful! it would be something if there were screen recording.

Beyond cool with obvious issues

Just picked this up and had a great time with it while I was experimenting with video manipulation and painting. Seems there is a ridiculous amount of potential here that is somehow being held back. 1. It works on imported videos, but doesn’t allow the on-the-fly x/y manipulation that can be done when recording a video with the camera, so it isn’t as dynamic in that mode as it is when using the camera, which is very unfortunate. 2. It would obviously be nice to have dynamic control of the mirrors in real time as well. 3. I’m sure there is a technical barrier to this, but being able to change FX while recording or working on an imported video combined with the above would be most ideal for developing a quicker workflow. Outside of that just such a cool app. I’m very appreciative for this app and its current functionality.

I expected more...

When I saw this on the front page of the App Store, I thought it looked like a great way to easily edit photos and videos. First off, I cannot edit photos in general, so that’s that hope out of the window. Secondly, the editing aspect of it was not at all what I was expecting, a slideshow of set examples of filters that I could edit to only a slight extent. Most of the filters don’t even look that good! I should have read the reviews before buying this.

Amazing App!

This app is awesome. All filters are great, have a super nice quality and the most important.. never crashes! I recommend!


I think this has super cool effects and would recommend it


You guys have to do something about battery usage. After a 10min. of use I couldn’t keep my phone in hands...it was literally burrning. 2 min. of use and already 11% battery gone. Cmon?!?! One single filter edit on a 10.sec. clip and battery went from 58% to 47%! iPhone 6s user.

Please Add a Cache Clearing Function

Updated Review j I wanted to please ask if you could add a Clear Cache function in the app? After I've used the app like once or twice, it starts to get really lagged out then just crashes. The only way to fix is this reboot my iPhone 6 Plus. But, well, that's inconvenient to constantly do. So, I figured since that always fixes the issue that it must be an issue of my phone's cache getting too full? I don't know, I'm not a programmer, but it was my best guess. So, if you can do something to rectify this problem with Hyperspektiv I would be extremely grateful, thank you. Also, I cannot believe Hyperspektiv currently has only a 3-star rating, that's crazy. Some people must just be very hard to please in my opinion. Because what this app allows you to is like computer quality effects on a mobile device I think. To me there is nothing else like this available right now. 3-stars seems harsh for how amazing I think that Hyperspektiv truly is if you give it a chance. Outside of that issue, though, I still find this program to be the best of its kind on the App Store and to be just an incredibly feature-filled, fun, very powerful and all around a wonderful application. Thanks again for this app and God bless. Original Review: This is one the most crazy and awesome applications I've seen in a long time. It allows you to add and tweak some of the most impressive, unique and brilliant filters I've pretty much seen anywhere. Seriously, you'll be amazed when you edit with these incredible FX filters I think, I am. I've been able to turn some pretty mundane videos into terrifying, amazing, completely trippy things. And what I said about tweaking is so true, the app gives you an X/Y axis on screen to warp and shape and absolutely mangle your videos. Plus if you double click the effect name you get another section that offers you an even greater amount of parameters to edit and cool mirroring functions as well. These developers should be really proud in my opinion, because I've really never seen filters this rad before. I cannot imagine what they had to do to create such insane visual effects. And while I do think it's neat that you can take live photos with your device and edit with the filters that way. Well, I do still wish that I was able to import photographs and images like I can do with importing videos. I would really like it if I could load into the program, photos or various images I already have on my device, and mangle them that way. I don't know if there is some limitation with the app about taking photos live versus just importing ones already on your device? Whatever the reason, though, I would ask the developers to please consider releasing an update that allows us to import photos please. Thank you if you'll give thought to my request, I appreciate it. Also, I think it would be great if Hyperspektiv was a Universal application. I can still use this program on my iPad as well as my iPhone. But, it's not ideal aesthetically and a few features don't show up when using the app on my iPad, like the "Submit Video to Be Featured" button doesn't show up in the share menu like it does on my iPhone. Still, even though I would like a few small things changed, like importing photos and the app being Universal. Well, not having those two features doesn't really detract from how awesome and incredible that I believe Hyperspektiv truly is in my opinion. In the end I think this one-of-a-kind program is well worth the current asking price and then some. Many thanks to the developer for what I'm sure was a lot of hard work, effort and time put into building and refining this application. Thanks too for giving me something so endlessly entertaining to play with and God bless. iPhone 6 Plus/iPad Air 2 iOS 11.2.5

Good idea but

Needs gallery support plus full screen size recordings not just the square. Love everything else tho.

Last comments dumb

It does have photo mode....

This app is great

Totally love this app. Esp the random filter button. Wish list items: 1. Have the random button available in landscape mode 2. Be able to save random settings Very fun app Great work

Great app

I’m enjoying this app very much....Truly great photo effects that you will not find elsewhere.

Vast improvement since updated

Love the filters and I’m happy to see the added functionality to take snapshots and the UI scaling fixed.

Could be great

The filters are pretty amazing and everything else is great. I just wish I could import and edit photos. I barely ever take videos on my iPhone so the video import feature isn’t very useful to me.

It’s alright.

Needs photo support and please make it a universal app.

Excellent Hallucinating Visions!

This app is absolutely awesome! Lots of options that give you endless ways to make any photos or videos you make appear with a realistic hallucinating image. Fractals, mirrors, and dripping colours that blend and melt into each other in a multitude of ways. I’m no photographer by any means, but with this app I can easily make any image look as trippy as any flashback vision or 60’s Fillmore poster. Very cool and very fun. Awesome!

Crashes when saving/sharing

Love this app but it isn’t consistent when saving/sharing. All tweaks are lost when crashing during some save/shares. Bummer!

Love it!

As far as the app go’s A+ experience so far! I’m don’t do reviews often but I’d seen it only has one, from two years ago. The picture taking issues have been resolved. So it’s good to go on both video and photos! Also, I work for Apple. I’d seen clips crash REGULARLY when it first came out and it does less (computing wise) than this does, so after reading the first review I was presently surprised that it functions so well! Really enjoying this app. Thanks team!

Ant trap,bug filled

Can’t even complete a video without it crashing. Nice concept though.

This was listed in the top selection

Bought it cause APPLE said it was great. This all is garbage. The resolutions for imagines is all over the place and it just looks cheesy.

Apples 1st Legit VideoSynth App,BPMC&TACHYONS+ might even approve

5 stars for what it can do, the stuff it cant do yet I’m sure the devs are werk’n hard to fix any problems and improve on what’s already hella dope. I have a pretty intricate VJ setup w/old and new gear, circuit bent items etc. and I was able to go to incorporate this quite easily and seamlessly. Keep up the good work !!!

Great features if the app worked

I’ve have attempted to use this app on 3 different iPhones, all with 50g of available space and this app still crashes before I can save a video I edited. The features and quick editing you can do it’s amazing but it literally cannot save into your photos.

Almost perfect

Why compress videos and ruin their quality whyyyy ☹️. Great effects great interface super clean and user-friendly but don’t crush the videos!! Would not have purchased had I know the app does this. Hopefully future updates will improve on this so I can give you that 5th star.


App crashes when you try to save. Doesn’t have access to your photos. App hasn’t been updated in months, developers aren’t paying attention to it. Waste of money :(


Fraud! Not working with photos, only with videos!

2 stars for effort

This app does handle video and photo. Seems just photos. However, there are other apps that do both. This is over priced. Also attempting to contact support is a fail.

Why can’t I use it on still photos?

Why videos only? I don’t like or take videos. So I can’t use the app!

Great and Creative

I have no idea why there are such crappy reviews for this app. It does everything it claims and can be a tool for inspiration in filmmaking. I love the active preview and the adjustments based on x and y axis. I rarely write reviews but this one deserves more stars. If you’re an indie filmmaker, I highly recommend this for an idea tool.

Cool but no photo use

I bought this solely because I’m a photographer and now I can’t use it. I can’t import existing images either, only videos, which is more than frustrating. It’s still a very cool app but add photo capabilities or change the description.

Great but has some issues

I give it 4 stars because this is the best video and picture editing app I’ve ever used (exception of Final Cut Pro) it works great for 1080p 60fps but crashes whenever I attempt to edit 4K(this is not my phones issue as it is a iPhone 8 Plus.)

Total Rip Off

It does not access my photos. This is worthless to me. How do I get my money back? It’s not much, but it’s the principle. This app does not work from the very beginning. 2/7/18: Do not buy this app. The developers take your money and run. They do not support their product. They just ignore you. Apple does not seem to care they did a feature on a group of people like this. 2/9/18: They are still refusing to respond to ripping people off with their defective design. And Apple will not respond to giving a defective app a special highlight.

The Best

How does this cost $1?!?! I would pay $20 for all of the features this has. Seriously if I was compositing the same effects on a different program it would take hours to make and change effect in the time that it takes to turn one fader. Seriously the absolute best video FX I have ever used on an app.

Missing features

I would love a true custom editor, because the ability to edit existing filters does not include all the available effects. Give, idk, three custom slots right at the end of the filters list, but before wildcard. Then pop into a list of all the available effect switches / sliders in the app, let us choose a few (you can set a max of 6 or something if too many effects make things hard) then save those choices to the custom filter and allow us to edit the sliders/switches same as any other filter. Or just give us some way to save the filters that wildcard lands on.

Can’t use your photos

Just purchased and turns out you can’t use your previously-taken photos. You have to take them with the app, and apply the filter live. Seems like this is a major oversight and it’s probably the main reason why anyone would want to buy this app.

Great app.

I enjoy this app, especially the ink setting. But i was wondering why it’s not showing up in family sharing? Thanks.


I agree with the other review(s) staying that the ad for this app is misleading in that you cannot access existing photos on your phone. Dumb. The effects the app can do look fantastic, but I bought the app with the initial intent of applying those effects to some of my existing photos.
