Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here. (Update 4/17/2021. After A Lot Of Effort, My Paid Account Was Reactivated.)
On August 23rd, 2019 I took the plunge and purchased Video Maker For YouTube – Video.Guru Pro for 9.99 USD.
It was an excellent purchase with lots of bells and whistles. In particular, I liked the ease of use, easy exports and uploads, and no advertising.
My only beef with the product was that the free music provided required attribution, and if you used it, it demonatized your YouTube video.
After reaching out to the “developer”, He did not wish to acknowledge this after numerous contacts. He just focused that with “Pro” the music was free. I countered that the music was available free to download online already, but could not be used for monetizing.
Other than the review, I let it go. I discovered I could get creative commons music here so no big deal.
I now have another beef with Inshot Incorporated.
My purchases are gone and I cannot restore them, limiting what I can do with the application I paid for.
I am not the only one, so I looked at the advice given by the developer to others with the same problem.
I cleared my cache, uninstalled, reinstalled, and even restarted my phone. No luck.
So, I sent an email to the developer at firstname.lastname@example.org not once, but three times with no answer.
I looked further into where the Chinese-backed Inshot Inc. was located. The address, 2801 Alton Parkway #305 Irvine CA 92606, United States of America is an apartment as far as I can tell.
I will be emailing this link to them in hopes they help me out in getting my software up, but I am not expecting much. I think I will need a new application for my video editing needs.
If anything changes, I will update this post.
Update: 4/16/2020 Within half an hour of sending this link to Inshot they sent me the stock uninstall/reinstall email. It is strange they did not do that in my prior calls for assistance.
You Cut was suggested by a reader so I installed it at. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.camerasideas.trimmer
When installed, it was Inshot as well and identical to Video Maker other than the name. I found this review insightful about the product.
I looked at another offering by Inshot. Video Editor & Video Maker. Again, same program as Video Maker. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.camerasideas.instashot
