Google Play Reviews

  1. 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.

  2. Queen R-avatar

    app 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

    picture 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.

  4. Anushka Saha-avatar

    apk It's very good aap I am really happy about that I am also enjoying but there is a problem actually there should be a timer that if anyone is not there to hold camera and you want to make a boomerang then is no way we have to do it ourself so there should be a solution and I have question ๐Ÿ˜…that if I have given a story on Instagram then how to post another post after first post๐Ÿ˜… I know that it is a cilly question but can anyone answer me bcoz I am new on Instagram so ya thankyou ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Miranda Liverpool


    download I have had this app for years. Loved it and used it all the time. But as of a couple weeks ago, none of my boomerangs will save. It just stays stuck on the screen. What happened?? I have tried uninstalling and redownloading the app but still doesn't work. Please help, I'd love to have this app back.

  7. Dexter Kam Yuan Zi-avatar

    Dexter Kam Yuan Zi


    app download 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

  8. Aker Bee-avatar

    not working When this works it can make a nice GIF. Video quality could be better though. Today when it doesn't work it freezes when saving the clip I made. I press on the screen to cancel but nothing in the app is responding. I closed the app and tried again but it has occurred twice now. Shame since this app is usually great.

  9. Dinesh Ong-avatar

    boomerang instagram from gallery Not friendly & unstable to use on android. Since 2018, no improvement. Precious moments were caught via boomerang. Sadly the files always have currupted shots. Sometimes the boomerang images / videos are okay. Just a matter of few seconds later, it becomes currupted. Pls help to fix this and I'll gove u 5 Stars. Cheers.

  10. Destiny L-avatar

    boomerang instagram story 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.

  11. Louise Leach-avatar

    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.

  12. Afizah Razali-avatar

    The boomerang is good. Everything is nice. But when i want to go to savings, its all black screen! I cant see everything. PLEASE fix it.

  13. Michael Webber-avatar

    Complete let down. Doesn't work on Samsung A70. Once pictures are taken app gets stuck on a processing and there is no way to move on.

  14. Drew H-avatar

    Over the past year all my shots have been corrupted. They save multiple files and the color is half washed out and buggy. It isn't worth having because you waste a memory. Better to just get a video or a pic. Developers have no interest in fixing it either.

  15. 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.

  16. Kati Texas-avatar

    Fun and easy to do! I've used my Boomerangs on Instagram, Facebook, even on video projects for YouTube. Cute little perfect loops are useful and cool.

  17. MsJuicy Baby-avatar

    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.

  18. FloodSlayer98 [Very Unactive]-avatar

    FloodSlayer98 [Very Unactive]


    Would give 5 stars if only on the camera on the back it would be a short gif by just pressing it just like the front facing camera, it used to be good like that before

  19. Lovelee Tan-avatar

    I love boomerang but since i bough samsung s10+ last year, it never was the same experience like before. The shot is too tight, not unlike before where it was wider and you can see some of the background. And i do not know how to go around this one. I tried to look but none helps.

  20. Louise Ysabel-avatar

    Boomerang is no longer working on my phone and its been like a month already that when I take a new clip it won't save it and its just stuck. Already tried to uninstall and reinstall the app more than 5 times but it still the same. ๐Ÿ™

  21. Amelia R-avatar

    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.

  22. Slindile Mji-avatar

    I have never had a problem before until I got the new Samsung note 10. The app worked few times and now if I take a video its saves it as an error I am unable to see the video or even share it.

  23. Iain Hutchings-avatar

    The save button in the top right corner doesn't actually save the boomerang for me so I have to use the share buttons instead. It has also led to me losing a few videos which were difficult to recreateb

  24. Silvana-avatar

    It is a great app but it would be absolutely perfect if it had a timer feature. Like, three or ten second timer before you take the boomerang. Otherwise it is a good app.

  25. Daniel Buccheri-avatar

    Daniel Buccheri


    Camera is digitally zoomed in to approx 2x on Galaxy S9+. Can't zoom out to normal and it looks low quality. Works better in Instagram. Uninstalled.

  26. David Plummer-avatar

    Love it but one big glitch. Absolutely love boomerang for my social media but why now is only 1 in 4 boomerangs saving and not corrupting? Please fix as its enormously frustrating and I would give 5 stars otherwise. I'm on a Samsung galaxy s9.

  27. Kimberly Nesbeth-avatar

    Kimberly Nesbeth


    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.

  28. Jake Sinclair-avatar

    Got rid of pre-recorded video feature. You used to be able to use a video from your camera roll and make it into a boomerang. Also did NOT used to require access to your camera in order to work at all. Talk about a downgrade

  29. Meliza Polvorosa-avatar

    Meliza Polvorosa


    I've been using this app for the last few years and now, it won't let me save the file. It keeps "processing" but nothing saves.

  30. Sandy Reed-avatar

    Does not work. Doesn't save to IG or any of the other options, also freezes a lot. Have lost many animations of my newborn. Waste of time.

  31. Valerie Mumbower-avatar

    Valerie Mumbower


    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.

  32. A Smith-avatar

    My experience has been good. It would be great if we had different boomerang options to choose from like the feature available through Instagram. There are options like slow motion, duo, etc...

  33. Aroop kumar-avatar

    Tried sooo many times. Not working now. Not able to save videos. Very very disappointed ๐Ÿ˜ก. Pls fix it soon

  34. Emily Tierney-avatar

    Boomerang used to work great on my phone but not anymore! It won't let me save, send, or share any of it! Please fix this and I'll fix my review

  35. Kacie Murray-avatar

    I used to have this app and it worked fine... I have just recently re-downloaded a several times uninstalled and reinstalled because I've had zero success being able to save

  36. Timothy Thomason-avatar

    Timothy Thomason


    I can't see the future, so how should I know when I'll record something I want to boomerang? If this let me use previously recorded videos I would give it more stars. Also if I could see the future I would give it more stars. I uninstalled this app because it's useless to me.

  37. Yasmin Mirza-avatar

    It's fun! But only wish that there could be a free hand video taking option. Otherwise, would definitely recommend!

  38. Felicity Beddoes-avatar

    Felicity Beddoes


    Won't work. I've had this app for years and had some fun with it, but the videos won't save. I've uninstalled it and reinstalled and still not working. Very disappointed ๐Ÿ˜‘

    I used to love using this it just wont save anything, I've tried uninstalling & downloading again more than once, but it's still not working anymore โ˜น

  40. Bobbi Parry-avatar

    Fun when it works! But half the time I shoot stuff I lose it because it freezes and doesn't save properly.

  41. Bianca Bee-avatar

    Front camera is always zoomed super close in and you cannot adjust it which is super annoying. Unable to zoom in when you are using the back camera... Probably bc they wasted it all on the front camera ๐Ÿคท

  42. Bright Ezekiel-avatar

    I love this app,but one thing l don't like about is the video limit is too short only 4second,can't someone use it up to 10 to 15 second that's the problem l dont like it.

  43. Yushi G-avatar

    It doesn't work anymore. After I made a boomerang it's just shutes down. And my boomerang is deleted. Very sad I liked the app before.

  44. Ksenija Vukotiฤ‡-avatar

    I use xiaomi redmi note 8 PRO phone, every time I want to snap a video with main camera, the app crashes completely. Fix this ASAP. Works fine with selfie camera.

  45. Threvi Vacal-avatar

    Whatever happened to this app? It used to be great but now it gets stuck every time I try to save or share a boomerang. Please fix this soon!

  46. Jhey Jeremillo-avatar

    It is not allowing me to save my boomerang. When I try to capture, the app just crashes. Please do something. My phone is LenovoK10 note..

  47. Julie Field-avatar

    Frustrating that it keeps rotating my boomerangs I want vertically not horizontally! Just automatically turns them when I save.

  48. Harshit Mehta-avatar

    My experience with this app is worst. It doesn't work when I try to make boomerang with my back camera. Very disappointed. Please fix this bug ASAP...

  49. Kamini Kalwari-avatar

    It is such a fun app! I just love it. All i think is u need 2 fix a little bit of bug or, the app is a blast!

  50. Karina Pinto-avatar

    Used to love this app but now I can't even adjust the speed on the Boomerangs I take. That option seems to have completely disappeared. Why?

  51. salim abdul-avatar

    It's fun to use but it could be much more good if the app could have more of other effects and even no setting option.

  52. Laura Simpson-avatar

    This app doesn't save, you sit for ages waiting for it to save and it just freezes. Infuriating.

  53. Rojan Shahba-avatar

    The quality has gone really bad. It's all pixels when you it playback.

    Its a very good app but you need some updates like Zoom feature, Text, and sharing to Whatsapp feature. Hope in the next addition it will be available. Thanks.

  56. Davey B-avatar

    Most of the clips I recorded dont save. It's been like this for months, wouldn't bother with the app for now until fixed.

  57. Paola Torres-avatar

    I just wish boomerang had an option to choose from in seconds of recording, Pruett than that, it's great ๐Ÿ™‚

  58. Teigan Mckean-avatar

    REALLY NEEDS A TIMER!! I love how fun this app is except you have to be able to keep your finger on the button, or have someone there to take the picture. I timer feature would mean I could take much better pictures on my own, or group pictures.

  59. Manjiree More-avatar

    There r no filters no effecs ni editing. It would be nice if there can be some thing like that. Look over this thing.

    I loved using this app on my Samsung and my pixel, but now that I have a brand new Sony Xperia 5, the app crashes every time I try to use it. Opens fine, but crashes as soon as I try to take a boomerang. Very frustrating. I'm bummed I can't create boomerangs anymore.

  63. Samantha Cheatham-avatar

    Samantha Cheatham


    I wish you had the ability to boomerang tiny videos I already shot and the way it was advertised on Instagram was that you could edit videos already on your phone. Overall good app but misleading advertising leads me to take stars off.

    I've loved and used Boomerang for years but lately the app is disappointing. I'll take fun gifs but they won't get saved. Please fix it.

  65. Nadine-avatar

    I love it when it works, but so often the Boomerang doesn't save. It seems to be happening more often, and I've uninstalled, reinstalled, cleared the cache, etc. Such a shame for an app you want to use to capture a moment!

  66. Shafiul Alam Chowdhury Nadel-avatar

    It is really fun but I gave 3 stars bcoz i hoped that it would be a little more longer as i cant really do anything that fast actually tbh i can but the actual problem is i am not comfortable and i cant really shoot something nice or funny etc that quickly anyways I hope you will make it longer and also thank you for helping us with such good app ...

  67. Nathan Terer-avatar

    Its a little glitchy but its okay... Maybe features for setting how long its going to loop and editing the number of times to loop..

  68. Shrutika Zare-avatar

    It's not at all saving any boomerang! Why? It was working fine before updating my phone! ๐Ÿ˜’

  69. Sami Khan-avatar

    Is an amazing app! Would definitely recommend people to download this app. Another app is " layout from instagram" would also recommend this app to be downloaded. Only concern I have with boomerang is that they should have stickers and filters so that the user may have fun using it. But in general, really live this app โคโค

    It's a good app I just would like it to have some kind of filters to use on your face. I would like some kind of Snapchat filters on there so you can take the videos with filters on. Good app just could use some more things.

  71. Tisa Naliฤ‡-avatar

    I use Boomerang on my Samsung Galaxy S9+ and sometimes I can't opened my recordings after saving them and it says that there's an error. And everytime I use Boomerang I need to record 2 or 3 boomerangs because I never know when it will say that there's an error. Please fix that!

  72. Dixon S-avatar

    I installed this last night and uninstalled it this morning, for one simple reason - it isn't integrated within Instagram.

  73. Andro goshal-avatar

    It really frustrating to see an iPhone user can change the setting of the app like changing the resolution or the frame rate but not on android device , why ?? Iam going to wait for two updates if nothing happens iam going to delete it And I will give a happy 5 stars once you make this feature available for android My s10+ has a killer cam but iam getting only 50% of it full capability

  74. Christina Lara-avatar

    Boomerang is one of my favorite apps. But lately it has not been working. It takes about 30 minutes to save. Not sure if it's because of the new Android update?

  75. Ned Espina-avatar

    Other videos are not save properly. It can't be read by the video player or upload it to social media sites

  76. Mr What Waa-avatar

    Can you please fix it. Because when i want to share my boomerang vid that almost 6 month ago. It suddenly knock me out from the apps and i get notifications from my device that this app has crashed. But, when i try to share my vid that just 3 days ago. Everything was fine and nothing happens. Thank you

    My vid won't save and load. It just gets stuck after tapping save/share.

    This app is amazing app i truly would highley recomend it to any of my friends If u take a look at it and compare it to the other apps u would think it is a waste of time but no it is not. Welldone to the founders of this amazing app!!!!!!!!! It really does the work that they promised me I have no complaint about it, atleast not yet!!

  81. Alyssa Hanks-avatar

    To me its ok. But I wish it would not zoom in too much or we can adjust the zoom and there are some simple filters.

  82. Psalm107two-avatar

    Very fun! Easy to use. I love this app. Sparked my creativity. Have had tons of fun and laughs!

  83. Liz Lieser-avatar

    The app freezes when you try to save the files rendering it useless. Disappointed.

  84. ros alyssa-avatar

    I love this! It creates the perfect boomerang! It's also better than the Instagram's boomerang! Nice job ๐Ÿ‘ My sis also liked this app! Keep the nice work! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I just downloaded the app to check it out, honestly it's not the best. It lags most of time then closes when I do to much movement. I wouldn't recommend this

  87. Ivan Ivanov-avatar

    It does what it is for but can't focus close ups. Tapping the screen doesn't do anything. Hope they work on this issue.

    There isn't even a setting option, so you can't change the duration, rate or even the zoom.

  89. Aishath Rimsha-avatar

    I'd rate this a 10/10 but maximum is 5 so yea keep in mind I rate it a 10. Its really really fun and cool. I love how you can make a loop with almost everything in the world. Good job!

  90. Ziggy Kungune-avatar

    It's really amazing, everyone knows its revolutionary! I just wish you could add videos from your gallery and make them into boomerangs, both on the app and on Instagram.

  91. Christy Lawler-avatar

    I've loved this but as of late it gets stuck on the save screen and errors out....what gives??

  92. Sarah H-avatar

    App is fun but has few features and 2 out of 3 videos don't save I just end up with corrupted files. Very unreliable and disappointing.

  93. Subhash .s-avatar

    If you want to do boomerang stuff in other platforms ,this is the best

  95. Sudar vizhi-avatar

    It's not working with the back camera. Only works for selfie. Even after installing multiple times, same issue.

  96. richa bengani-avatar

    After the new update, I am not able to see any of my previous videos, or new recorded ones..

  97. Olivia Nakale-avatar

    My experience with boomerang is good but they should update a bit more...But overall I like it alot...๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜Š

  98. Ella Card-avatar

    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.

  99. Maria Castillo-avatar

    I really like it and enjoy it but the thing is that it just goes to fast!!! Like I would like these to actually take what I want to record and not just miss it. Cant thses go slower?
