    This is a great app but I gave 4 stars because in an iphone there is more time to record, but in Samsung there are literally only 2 seconds. There are also many glitches in this app which are a big problem. So please fix these problems other wise this is an excellent app ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š. It is also a really interesting and fun app. It would also be really nice if there were an option to save the video as a gif.

  2. Judy Li-avatar

    apk Fun but high failure rate. About 23% of the videos I made were corrupt, didn't save properly or something. Given it's a moment-in-time capture which is hard to recreate (esp of animals), that high a failure rate is terrible. Still a fun app to use, to make short videos. Would be cool if there's an option to capture longer videos and an option to save the video as a gif.

    mod apk Its ok, I was really hoping to free hand the placement of the pictures. Everything else is ok. Not excellent or good. Less options to choose from then expected. The option to blur out was cool but only allowed to resize the blur not pant with it. So it was tricky. Not the best but not the worst. Can tell someone has put thought into it.

    download Just use the built-in function You can do the exact same minimal functions from the instagram app. However on here, the save feature doesnt work (continuously loads) so you can only post to feeds/stories and it doesn't allow you to choose which account to post to if you have multiple logged in. Fairly pointless when the key feature of 'pointing camera, recording in boomerang style, and saving to device gallery' doesnt work properly

    app I used to love this app, but it hasn't been working lately. It gets stuck saving and even if it does save, I usually can't find the video. It looks like a blank space and then says the video can't load. Sometimes, I can't even click previous videos to look at.

    not working It was an amazing app!! For the past 4 or so months it has had major issues with saving, recording, freezing phone. So upset! Then just recently it started to record in zoom...its been super weird. I hope they fix soon!

    picture The app has been glitching for months now. Sometimes it won't save the file or shows as corrupt and won't play. Now it records the clip but doesn't even show the clip thumbnail in the bottom right corner after u save it. It also shows as corrupt 8n the phones gallery and won't play. I love this app when its working. Please fix ASAP!!!

    boomerang instagram from camera roll Great app idea, huge functioning problems. It has issues with not processing and saving your boomerangs. The app gets stuck on forever saving/processing them or completely freezing up with the only option being to restart the app and losing your clip altogether. It's a great app that has the ability to get awesome and cute short clips but only when it actually works which seems to be rarely or not at all.

    boomerang instagram from gallery Im experiencing all the same issues as many of the most recent reviews. I love this app but I just tried taking a Boomerang and it won't save the video. It won't even process the video. I just uninstalled and reinstalled the app... same issue. Edit: app still hasnt fixed. I have to uninstall.

    save For two months already, boomerang refuses to save... It's loading forever, I even let it do its job for a whole hour and nothing. The bar loads till the end, and stays there, never really finishing to save. I uninstalled and reinstalled and it has the same problem. Please fix it

    I've used this app for years and they've made a few updates but they've never had a self timer for it and I feel like that's just ridiculous. Like, what if I wanna take a shot of me jumping but no one can take it for me? Like just give us a 3,5,10 self timer. It would make the quality of everything so much better

    At least flim in the dimensions I need to crop to, or allow me to actually chose the crop positioning. No point trying to capture a moment if you have to crop it out. Being able to choose the rewind time index might be a good move too. Good idea, horrible UI and end-user control

    This app is so cool i can creat funny vids and its replaying by itself!! I would give 5 โญโญโญโญโญ but i only could record it for about 2 sec. I would like if this app could record for a little bit longer like 4 sec or more. But u tried ur best so good job!! Not as i wanted but u tried ur best and that's all that it matters. Not tooo many adds wich is a good thing. U did a very good job!!!!. I like it

    Same issue with majority of the people. Unable to save a video after taking, video will not be able to play. Have to take a boomerang many many times before there is a video saved. Same issue after uninstalling and reinstalling. Please do an update on this bug ASAP.

  16. Kayla-avatar



    So annoying! Every time I make a video and try to save it or post it, it takes FOREVER then the app crashes. My video is never saved OR posted! Doesn't matter if I open Boomerang or if I try to use it through Instagram. IT NEVER WORKS! Deleting this app right away and trying something different!

    Absoluteley LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!! Captures the very best moments with a cute, funny, or even with a sexy little twist (wink). You can use it for any memory. I personally like to use it a lot with the kid's however, it is a great app to have and to use for any age. I'm obsessed and this app will never get old. So when life throws you lemons... just smile, and Boomerang it... (Smiling).

    Boomerang doesn't work on Xperia 5, was fine on z5 compact and really enjoyed using it. Still happening and no feedback from developers on what looks a common issue. Have now uninstalled as useless.

    Not one of my Boomerangs will save or share. I've uninstalled and reinstalled several times. It's not just on my phone, but many people I know with different phone brands. This has been going on for almost a year. Fix it already.

    The app is good and all but there is very less time to even make a move. A little longer if it would be to make the boomerang then it would help a lot.

  26. Katie Panic-avatar

    So disappointed with this app. On several occasions now it has not saved boomerangs properly, just a black screen. I've lost many precious memories by shooting them on Boomerang and just getting a black video. Thanks for nothing, I'd think creating an app that already uses such a flawless phone feature wouldn't be so difficult especially considering how simple the app is (no zoom, filters, emojis or video length options are available, it's just a record button) but obviously I was wrong.

    Absolutely a failure of an app. 90% of the videos don't save and then when you to share it the video isn't the right size. The quality of the videos is a hit or miss. Terrible not even worth one star.

    Louise Leach


    Highly disappointed, used this app for forever on my other Sony handsets and never had any issues. I have tried on several occasions to use it on my Sony Xperia 5 and as soon as I press start the app crashes. I have uninstalled it several times, updated the app, rebooted the phone and nothing works.

    Cool concept. Would be could to have double length as well as a loop option without rewind. Also quality is a little eh sometimes. But over all i will keep using it.

    Boomerang is really good! It bounces your vids a bit too much. The reason why I downloaded it was because I use snapchat and on IOS you can do bounces but on android... Well u can't so I seen boomerang and decided to download it again, I had boomerang for a long time before. The only change I would make is to have filters like snapchat then it will be a big hit! Please make this a option because it would be amazing! ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Recently, about the past half a year, the application can not save the taken boomerang. It happens while showing the processing icon on the screen. It would be great if developers could fix this problem. I'm using Android on Samsung A70 latest version.

    It would be better if you could use a preexisting video and clip it to loop. Something this simple, should've been added already.

    If you are not signed up to Instagram, then the app doesn't work. So if you have Instagram, use the Story>Boomerang feature. I don't recommend the app. No major use.

    Good app for boomerangs but major features missing. Ability to focus shouldve been included. Rarely videos get corrupted too.

  47. BuzzOA-avatar



    If I could give zero stars, I would. This app is worse than useless. The app crashes and force closes, as soon as you hold down the record button, never even got as far as actually recording a clip to be turned into a boomerang clip. ABYSMAL. Sony Xperia 1 handset.

    Funny app but 3 problems 1st problem is that the camera won't zoom in to get a better view 2nd problem is that if you could add funny faces like Snapchat and snow to make it more funny 3rd problem is that you can just move the camera around and take funny pictures if you could add more details to the camera to make it more interesting not boring like just take reapeated videos when you just record it then you are done please fix these problems so I will give it 5 stars thank you

    Color distortion. Broken. Doesn't work. I have tried everything. Since June. I used to love boomerang, I used it often. Something happened, while shooting the short video, everything is fine, but when saved or posted the colors disappear, or it's very distorted. Sad... but its October now and still no luck. It is still broken. I use a note 8 at the moment.

  67. Olivia Mariano-avatar

    When I make a boomerang through the app, and save the video, it does not play back the way I recorded it. The video looks like it separates with a black and white version at the top of the screen and a colored version at the bottom. They don't look messed up when watching in the immediate playback. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app. The problem doesn't occur when I make boomerangs in the Instagram app, just this one. I've emailed boomerang support with examples but the message has not been responded to.

  68. Cookie Moran-avatar

    On newer Galaxy phones, the gifs are discolored. From what I can find, the consensus is that it's because the camera in the app is in full screen mode. However, in the settings, you can't take Boomerang out of full screen. The only way the gifs look good is if you post them in black and white. Previously, it didn't look discolored if you took the boomerang through the Instagram app, but I did it yesterday, and that's discolored too. This is a super annoying glitch that a lot of people seem to have. It'd be nice if Boomerang fixed it. I used to LOVE this app. If they fixed the discoloration issue, I would again.

  69. ASHURII NIKOORU-avatar



    Edit: They finally fixed the issue where it would double film the video. Works like it should now, though the camera seems more blurry than I remember it. Not a 5 star because of the quality of the video once uploaded and because it took so long to fix the problem, but all in all still a good app. (Original post)This app was great until I tried using it on my Galaxy S9. It does this double film thing. Only when you either save it or upload it. It saturates the color and moves it to make a double over the original video. Once it's fixed I'll gladly give them the review they deserve.

    When it works, it's brilliant! One of my favorite photo apps. It's like haiku: it teaches you about getting rid of extraneous stuff to sharpen an image and make a point. It's challenging and keeps you focused, which I love. Sometimes it seems to play the clip too fast and/or makes it too short to edit, which is frustrating, but that happens rarely; when it works, it's great: clever and witty and imaginative... one of the best.

    I have a galaxy s8+. When I take videos and either save it or try to repost it, the photos colors are different from when I originally shot it. I see thus whenever I access my camera roll. Even when I uninstall and reinstall the problem is not solved. This has been an issue for at least a year. I'm sorry for not reaching out yet, but can we please fix this issue. I would LOVE to use this app. And im tired of this problem. I should not have to make my friends send me videos when I can take them myself. Also, everyone but me has an iPhone therfore when they send it to me it is not the same quality. I would like this issue fixed. If you need evidence, please email me and I will send you some.

    I missed a good moment due to volume button not functioning as record button. I can't imagine many people need to adjust their volume at the exact same time as taking a video. I would be happy if that could be changed, to match other social media and camera apps. Also a 1:1 aspect ratio setting to help frame your shots better for when they go onto Instagram etc. I understand the app is supposed to be streamlined and an addon for ig, but these are things I would see as standard on a video app, which is what boomerang is. Thanks

    It's a good app. Not much to do on it other than press a button and save - but I guess that's the point of it? Fun, but really meant for a quick, cool, bouncing video.

    Why in the hell have they not fixed the problem yet with Android or newer phones and the discoloration! There is a large market of Android users and several people have made comments about their videos being discolored. This has been going on for months and not all of my videos look good with a black and white filter, but that is the only way to make it look ok. I'm so very frustrated with the lack of work being done to fix this issue!

    I saw so many people using this, but day 1 of installing it, tried to post my very first video and the colors are jacked up. Can't use at all. It's black and white with a couple splotches of color and very grainy. The initial preview of it looks fine, but then I hit save or share and it's not the same. Very disappointed.

    This app would be great if there wasn't an overwhelming amount of android users reporting distorted image when using it. I am unable to disable it's full screen abilities and any other method to fix it is not working. I don't know why these app developers don't acknowledge when they clearly have a bug they need to fix and just take care of it. I have seen reports of this issue from over a year ago.

    I used to love this app! I just got the new galaxy S9 Plus and now the boomerang videos come out so distorted and discolored I cannot use them. Reading the reviews I see now this has been an on going issue. I am so disappointed and frustrated. I gave this 2 stars instead of one because when it works this app is so fun. Please fix and resolve this issue.

    You guys suck. Since 2016 people have been having the same issue with the colour distortion when going to post videos through this app. And it still has not been fixed. Not exactly the kind of customer support anyone would want in an app. It appears someone made this app and then abandoned it not bothering to fix any issues. Good work boys. Good hustle getting the app out and then forgetting about it. Figure it out guys.

    I love Boomerang, but I can't use it on my new phone. Huawei P20 Pro. I can take a video, but I can't save or share it because something always goes wrong and then the app brings me back to the photo page. I wish I hadn't tried to use Boomerang to capture some priceless moments, because although it used to work really well, I just end up with nothing and frustration now.

    When trying to post a boomerang, it's filled with lots of colors. I've tried and tried to have it removed and I'm not able to. I had to literally download an old version just so that I can use it. I can't update the app either because those colors will come back. Can you please look into this issue? It's been happening for quite some time and it's driving me insane! If this issue gets resolved, then I'll give you all stars. Update: I also cannot post pics or videos from the app itself. No option

    This app is a total mess! The photos taken thru the app are distorted with some blurry lines. I've been using this app on my previous phone and when I use it on my Huawei P20 Pro it no longer works fine. I thought it was just because of my phone but I found out that almost all of my friends has the same problem as mine! YOU GUYS REALL NEED TO FIX THIS! ASAP

    This is a nice, hilarious boomerang-video filmer. One thing I can say that start the video a split second before the the thing you want to catch on redo, because the thing always films a smaller portion of the middle of what you film, if you know what I mean. Otherwise, it's a great way for me and my siblings and friends to film funny videos. Makes Chick-fil-A much more ExCiTiNg. I wish you warm weather and wind lifting your wings!

    We've had this app forever now. Time for some innovation. Speed options? Dimension options? Something creative. It was awesome but technology moves quickly every day. Boomerang needs to catch up.

    App needs to zoom in. So basically I love this app so much. The quality is very clean and smooth. Makes your skin look amazing. But one problem. Just ONE, Is that the camera won't zoom in. So basically if you wanted to zoom into something. You can't. You can only move the camera. But I would rate this a five star if they could fix that problem.

    Well, this is really disappointing. I really wanted this app to work, but, after reading reviews and seeing for myself, it seems that it doesn't work on newer phones. I have a Samsung Galaxy Note8. When I go to post my boomerang, the color is all distorted. So sad. Have to uninstall it. I really hope they are able to fix it soon.

    It seems I can't go to a video I've already taken before I installed the app and edit it from within the Boomerang app. And I can only use it when the app is open. There are moments I may record in life when it's pure chance that there may be something funny or cute that would be editable in Boomerang. I don't want to always have to be using the actual app and HOPE to find something worthy for Boomerang. I should be able to use my regular camera and then choose to edit it in the app when I want.

    Love this app, but there are compatibility issues with the One Plus 6 phone. Boomerangs from my old phone (LG G4) are still on my gallery on my new phone, and playback for these is fine. I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling but it doesn't fix it sadly. When I take a boomerang, the preview before you save it works fine and plays back in full colour, but when I save it, all the colour distorts, patches are in black and white and generally looks very bad. Please fix!

    Seems like a cool app, but it distorts my images. The end result is black and white and double exposed. More disappointing is the lack of concern to fix the issue. After numerous searches and scrolling through the reviews this issue has been reported thoroughly with no response from the app developers (that I could find).

    As I've read a while ago in the comment section I see that i'm not the only one experiencing the same problem. Most of the android users experiencing the same thing with me. I already install and uninstall my app for 7 time but it's still the same. I hate the thing that when I capture or record video the result shows blqck white red and gray lines or whatever so in the final output ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

    I can take a boomerang shot and the preview looks awesome, but when I save it, the colors are all jacked up. Looks from other reviews like I'm not the only one and it's been a problem for quite some time. Uninstalling bc this app is a waste of phone space at this point. Too bad!

    Love the idea! Its easy to use however the distorted colors that I am forced to accept are preventing me from wanting to share the funny creations I get from this app. Please address this issue as I have read others complaints about the same thing. Some like it, some don't so why not make it a choice not a forced option?

    very great app to have fun with๐Ÿ˜Š the only thing i wish is that i wish it was a little similar to Snapchat. And what i mean by that is like you can save it to your gallery and if it gets accidentally deleted from there it will be ok because its still saved on the app itself. But other than that like i said this is a very great app to have fun with and be creative.

    I have a galaxy s9 and EVERY single time I have tried boomerang it works until I upload it to Instagram - then it changes to half color and black&white. It looks all distorted and you can hardly even tell what the video is. I don't know why it does this and it really bums me out. I have tried deleting and reinstalling and it and nothing changes. *I read the boomerang app reviews on Google Play and it looks like we are all having the same issue!

    The app needs to allow approx. 10 seconds of record time instead of just 10 frames. Currently it only records 3 seconds of footage. IG could still limit the uploadable size by adding a small editor that allows crop & trim. The app is fair overall. Add 10 seconds of recording & a Crop & Trim editor then you'll have a 5 star program. Peace! (Have uninstalled the app for now. Once the program becomes more tailored toward user convenience, I'll be back. Peace!)

    This app is hilarious with what it does with your camera and any movement being filmed!!! I love how I can make it look like my dog is shaking his head "no" and how you're able to see some things go in reverse with smoothness where you couldn't with a regular camera or video recorder! Super enjoyable... A must have for everyone from novice camera phone users to professional photographers!!!

    I love this app when it works properly. It's heaps of fun to use, but i would say about half the time, the clip doesn't save. It's like it gets corrupted or something and instead of my video, there is just a grey screen that doesn't play anything. It's super disappointing when you've captured something great. Would love to see this fixed so I can give this app the 5 stars it should have.

    I really like this app. However I really wish I were able to record a Boomerang in Manual camera mode. Trying to make a Boomerang in low light or at night is horrid because of the Auto Camera Mode set in this app. Boomerangs come out way too bright and washed out by over contrast. Please add the option to use our ohones manual mode camera and not just auto mode.

    I guess it should be no stars at all for this rating. All my boomerangs for a special event got its color distorted just like what happened to others in the recent comments. Is there a way for me to remove this weird filter? Coz I cannot retake these moments anymore and Boomerang ruined it. It was perfectly okay when I took the shots then when I was browsing it again after an hout to share it online...apparently the colors got distorted. :<

    I'm having an awful lot of problem saving my boomerangs. They keep glitching on my new Galaxy S9+. It worked when I first got the phone, it's not been more than 2 months and the files keep corrupting. There's literally just a big exclamation mark on my file and I can't even play it. I'm sure there's nothing wrong with my SD csrd or internal storage as everything else saves fine.

    This app doesn't fix the color problem when saved. It's sad that they are more focused on the iphone users, I hope that they fix this problem now. I am sure that there are more android users than iphone users. So if they fixed this problem its a win-win to everyone.

    Absolutely disappointed with the final results once it is saved or shared on Instagram. I have the same exact issue a lot on android users are experiencing! You would think because I have a Galaxy S9 there would not be any problems but sadly that is not the case! I've deleted the app and restarted my phone with no luck. Why is it in a distorted black & white with blurry filter??? Please fix there are plenty of android users that are dissappointed!!!

    This app makes me angrier than any other. What's the point of capturing a moment if your useless app is just going to save a corrupted file that can never be played? Literally every single time I've taken photos and decided to include a boomerang I have to warn everyone it might not save. What's the point of your app? I already have enough disappointment and anxiety in my life. I don't have any desire to use an app that will stress me out because a perfect moment is never going to replay again.

    I used to love boomerang, but for some reason I can't save or share my boomerangs. It keeps saying "Oops something went wrong. Please try again" This is super frustrating and basically can't use the app. I uninstalled it and downloaded it again, but keeps giving the same problems!

    I really enjoy using boomerang. It is a super cool app and helps gain popularity and views on your stories/posts. Its always turns out great and I love it. One thing you could change is that you can make a boomerang from a video already existing in your gallery. I always make videos on snapchat but can't loop them. !!! PLEASE IMPROVE !!! Thank you.

    the app worked fine up until samsang galaxy S8. I've experienced the same issue on a S9+ and now also a S10+. Randomly after taking a boomerang shot, even though it plays the shot back to me, it fails to save it when I press save. I have lost countless once in a lifetime shots due to this app malfunctioning. No other photo app fails to save to my phone. I see now my phone comes with it's own boomerang feature so I will uninstall this. Its disappointing because I love/d this app.

    Horrible. There was a colour distortion every time I saved or used a video. Tried uninstalling app and restarting phone but made no difference.

    Thankfully read a review further below from Sarah Dunn about using it thru Facebook. I have the same issue as many other do with this app and my Galaxy S9 Plus. It takes videos and distorts the colors into two different planes whether thru the app or Instagram. The only work around is to do it thru the Facebook app and save it to your phone that way. The video comes out perfect.

    The app doesn't work with my S9+. I searched high and low for fixes and it seems to be purely an issue with the app not being developed properly for the Android devices. I'm extremely disappointed with this. Hoping the makers will fix it and not continue to ignore everyone with this issue.
