Efficiently personable
Been using Loom for about a year now. When I started using it didn’t think it would be as useful/ how excited about video recording could I get? But now I use it a dozen times a day for trainings, quick video messages (esp for something special like bday or work anniversary), giving an overview of a project to someone not in my time zone, or even recording a screen conversation between me and someone. Now with the transcription feature, documentation creation from training videos is so fast and easy!! Is a top 3 productivity tool for me that I now can’t work without.

Wastes 4 hours of my life filming videos I can’t view
Signed up for an account. Pretty familiar with how to use from previous job. Made my first video from desktop app saw the preview on the website after it uploaded. Went on to do 4 more videos over the course of a few hours to train the new hires at my small business. The more videos I did, the slower and glitchier it seemed to get. I didn’t think anything of it until I went to my library after I was done to upload to my team workspace. Received an error message. Followed all the steps about uninstalling, reinstalling. The desktop app allows me to create more videos but no matter where I try to sign into to view them, it won’t let me view. Tried to download the app, and I can’t get past the log in page. It seems as though it’s going to sign me in and then it doesn’t. Takes me back to the first app welcome screen to log in or sign up again. The app and website are totally useless. But yet the chrome extension and desktop app let me waste my time just fine

iOS app Half Baked
I’ve been using Loom for awhile now. Huge fan of the platform. When it comes to the iOS application though . . . it appears that it was designed only for content creation? When members of my team send me a loom and I open the link on my iOS device it opens in chrome (the whole interface works in safari but chrome is my default browser) and in the chrome mobile version there is no ability to respond (no option to open in loom). When I open the app, there is no ability to search for the shared video or even paste a link to the shared video (even though we are in the same business account). The business account folders do not even show on the iOS app. Great that you can record and quickly share but you loose a significant power of the platform without the collaboration piece and access to all your content.

Lag and design
I tried numerous attempts at recording a video, thank goodness I looked at the quality. I like the idea of Loom video but can’t get the quality to look good. I recorded about a 30 minute video, and I got a laggy one. After about 30 minutes of recording, it then kicked me off the site. I then recorded a little bit afterwards and looked at the quality to see that there was so much lag what I saying was not matching up with what I was doing at all. It’s also seemed like part of my video we just cut out completely. Terrible design as well I would love to be able to edit but I can’t and it won’t let me export it either. I was lucky I could share with a friend. The mic also kept cutting in and out. Again terrible design please fix it will help your app. Overall very disappointed with results, I was hopeful but this only gets a 1 star. Please try and develop your app and at least give it good quality.

It’s sad to write this because the software was amazing WHEN it worked, but they simply can’t keep their product or service good. After multiple failed, uses and attempts both on computers and devices, along with looms, constant hiding behind screens for so-called support I have had to cut ties. I thought this was going to be a lifelong product for my business as it expands, but turns out it was a massive waste of time, energy, and money. I hope one day to come back and be a raving fan for them but as they continually are unwilling to support customers except by email, and not get to the root cause of the problem, I can’t recommend staying away from this company more. Best of luck to you and them. I hope you can keep up with the market and improve and if you do hopefully I’ll be back. However, it seems like your company may be one of the 90% of businesses that fall in the long run.

Amazing service. Awful deeplink handling.
For a service with such elegant design from launch, your handling of deep links on mobile is hilariously atrocious. I bet the founder built the first version, and the founder had some aesthetic. Or at least a basic understanding of human factors. Forcing users who have your app installed into an awful user viewing experience was a hilarious UX decision. That product manager should be fired. The main reason loom works so well is because viewers could go from clicking a link to watching a video at 1.5x speed in less than two taps. But now… you force people to watch videos in the loom app. The interface is slow, crashes half the time, and shows the team who shipped this trash never even tried to use their own creation. Stick with mobile web for viewing in all cases. Fire the product manager who forced deeplink viewing on users.

Best App Ever!
I have tried other apps to try recording my online lextures being held on Webex, and they all recorded video only. I was so frustrated that I wasn’t getting a response from their development team, so deleted their apps. I came across Loom and gave it a chance. I had a class this evening and wanted to try it out, IT WORKED!!!!!!! It recorded both video and audio, and I was using my airpods!! Finally an app that does wat it’s supposed to, record both video and audio with the benefit of using a bluetooth headset. Thank you!!

Always crashes, videos always go into “Uploading”, I wish there was a better app
I am not the one to write negative reviews, but loom is the source of my frustration. I often record tutorials for students and pay annual fee to loom. The app doesn’t work very well on any of my devices. I use Mac, latest iPad, and Chromebook. My personal pet peeve is when I make a tutorial for 10 minutes just to find out that the video didn’t upload. I reinstalled, rebooted, restated, contacted support - it’s such a waste of my time. I wish my time of this review won’t be wasted and Loom will do something about it. I am looking for alternatives, so please advise. I currently have dozens of videos that are “uploading” - that’s hours of my time and energy wasted. That’s it.

Loom saves me so much time and money 🙌
Loom is incredible! Use it a ton on desktop and keep up to date with the app. Mostly for notifications. However, I’m now doing a lot of content ideation with it on mobile and would love to be able to create and organize my folders on mobile. It seems you can’t. All in all, Loom is a massive time saver and truly makes me so much money and keeps clients happy! Would love to make more use of the app though and make Loom more of a content tool!

No upgrade options in the app
I had to attend an important meeting, but it was conflicting with another meeting. I downloaded the app based on reviews and put it to record for an 1 hr of meeting. The app gave me no indication that i could record for only 5 minutes. if it had said upgrade to pro version to record longer - i would have done that. I lost all more than 5 minutes of the meeting. I tried to upgrade later , but it gave no option to upgrade in the app- i have to go to browser to to go to billing section - I had no option to use apple pay- I had to pay using a credit card to a company that i already felt deceived by - cause it didn’t record an important event i was looking forward to.

Best tool for interacting with clients
There is nothing bad to say about Loom. This platform allows me to communicate clearly with my clients and for my clients to clearly communicate to me their needs and wishes. LOOM Is a clear communication tool for any small business trying to help other small businesses SUCCEED. This is a great tool highly recommend it!!! If you’re not using it you’re losing out due to ambiguity and miscommunication. Do yourself a favor and get a Loom account today.

I hope to keep seeing improvements.
I love Loom I’m a loyal subscriber but I wish there were more features in the editing tools and the ability to insert other video clips into a split video clip. That would be phenomenal. Also, if there was the ability to download our video recordings as an mp4 or mov files, that would be an amazing feature! Thank you to the crew behind the scenes you guys are the best!!

Great in concept, lacking in execution?
Concept is great and when I started using it I really enjoyed it. But now the product seems to be crumbling a bit? Editing, splitting and cutting the final video is horrendous and it keeps picking the wrong segments to be part of the final result ( which would be ok if it wasn’t for the fact that all mobile videos start recording from the loom app and not what I actually want to show) In terms of support, their chatbot is unhelpful as it only cares about recording issues and nothing else, and it takes a good bit to actually hear back from a real person (even though they promise to get back in a couple of hours)

Doesn’t work with iOS
This is an amazing piece of software that worked great on my MacBook, but the app for my iPhone did not work. I was able to record my screen and my voice with the iPhone app and then edit the video on Loom‘s website, but when I went to download the edited video, the edits weren’t there. I spent about a week and a half going back-and-forth with Looms tech-support and they acknowledged the issue but couldn’t resolve it. So if you wanna capture your iPhone screen and edit it with this app, look elsewhere.

Must have app on phone and desktop
This app has proven invaluable for teaching, public speaking, better engagement, improved communications between team members as well as friends, family, business colleagues. You just have to drive in and try it. They make it super easy to learn. And it’s affordable. So, you have no reason to not check it out. Really — try it now!

I lost access to the email I used to sign up for loom originally, and I emailed (because there is no number to call) and asked if they could switch accounts for me as I could no longer access that email and I was still being charged monthly. Long story short-I sent that email on January 10, as of today, January 29, there is still no resolve and I’m still being charged. They asked me to email them from the email I DONT HAVE ACCESS TO in order to change my email. When I told them TWICE that I could not, they asked for my credit card info so they could just delete it. I gave them the info and they did not delete it, in fact, they charged me again! Talked to a new lady today who told me the only way she can delete it is if I give her my credit card info. I have no words for the stupidity and poor customer service. This app is The Hotel California…you can check out anytime you like, but YOU CAN NEVER LEAVEEE

It takes a little while to watch the videos.
I don’t know what happened but always when I try to watch the videos the video stuck in the middle or in the beginning and we cannot see anything you got to wait 10 minutes sometimes one hour I don’t know what’s going on but that is the problem.

Super easy!
Love how it is so easy to get Loom started, then pass on the info without having to stop someone else’s train of thought. Record what you’re seeing on a screen or a video, explain how you got there, and then you have info for your review when they’re ready. They can fix, schedule a time, or record their own video reply!

Best way to communicate with your team
I’m obsessed with Loom. Hands-down the easiest and most convenient way to connect with your team or customers whether you want to walkthrough a complex topic, share feedback, or give an update. Saves me hours each week and helps build better relationships. A must-have for hybrid remote teams.

Attn: Online Educators
If you do any kind of teaching online, have a business where you communicate a lot online, or you’re out on a trip, and you need to create some thing having the Loom app will dramatically improve the efficiency of your business and life. I use Loom every single day inside of my online education business training company. We tried to follow the mantra… Eliminate. Delegate. Automate. It’s what many successful entrepreneurs are trying to do every day from the looks of it. So… If you don’t have Loom, it’s just probably taking longer and a bit more stressful. Go do great things! Appreciate it Loom, and keep making it even better! -Mike

Need more options
Loom is not a new business or new technology, but they are growing in popularity and have put a ton of work into their UI/UX and that makes it easy to continue using it while hoping for quality of life improvements on the functionality. Web app / desktop app / and mobile app still need more options and settings for the recording setup.

Work-Life saver
Loom is a life saver for me at work. I push async communication as a remote worker. I’m fortunate to have the ability to work on my own schedule and share core working/meeting hours with colleagues around the globe. Answering questions, and posing them with Loom has eradicated meetings that I used to have that often got long and drawn out. Loom4Life

Great value to the home owners
The home binder is an awesome way to keep all your home records for the future. It also lets you know if you have any appliance recalls. Being able to put all your receipts, inspections report and contractors all in one place can be a huge time saver.

Writing up a huge email again instead of just recording a quick loom is something I can’t imagine ever doing again. I’m a fast typist, but this is so much better for certain emails / slack posts.

Great for watching videos on the go
Often, I’ll see a Loom shared with me while I’m in a car, or not by my computer. I love that the mobile app allows me to have a great viewing experience, react to videos, and even create videos! I taught my mom to use Instagram using Loom and it was great :)

I can’t get the app to open the past few weeks. I open it and it acts like its starting and it quits. I have tried deleting and reinstalling. I loved it prior to this. I would like an option to record your screen and your camera on the phone app just like the desktop version.

People that five starred this app got payed by the company
Please do not buy this piece of junk app…please! Half your videos won’t upload, if they do it takes hours, and good luck even seeing the video! They decided to make this app look nice but work like a toaster on crack. The product manager spent more time upgrading his Town hall to level 2, than on making this app work like an actual app. Don’t waste your time or energy on Loom, just find an alternative.

Great product, wonky app
Loom is such a time saving way for me to create content and get videos spun up for my clients. However, I’m shocked that devs haven’t updated the glitch in this iOS app after more than 6 months of it being in there… If you turn the mobile to watch in landscape / full screen view, every single video will eventually fall out of sync with the audio. The video ends 5-10 seconds early before the audio does, as the audio fall behind the pace of the video being played. Please fix this simple error.

you guys charged me over 100 dollars for not using the app. i had to buy the subscription ONCE for a school project because you guys don’t let new users record for a longer period. every time i tried to cancel it it would tell me an answer. i sent several requests for help and nobody answered me. i’m now out 100 dollars that I could have used for food, this is ridiculous and a prime example of poor business. you shouldn’t be charging people for “unused activity”.

Great Idea, but too many tech issues
This app has a lot of potential. The video quality is amazing but that’s where the good stuff ends. Editing is difficult, videos take long to load and they buffer, the videos also freeze when editing. They freeze A LOT and it’s frustrating so it’s makes editing harder and it takes forever. This app could really be great once the bugs are worked out.

Buggy! There are better options available.
It was great during the pandemic, and I really loved having the cloud storage space. However, in the last six months, probably closer to a year, the reliability and quality of the software has just taken a nose dive. Customer service really is more miss than hit, I finally gave up and deleted my account. There are better options available.

Very helpful tool! Greatly encourages async collaboration, and increase productivity. One idea for improvement - when opening loom links from chrome, the video tends to pay in chrome. Ideally, if someone has the app, the video would open in app. Thanks!

Someone recommended this app and I was very excited to use it, but unfortunately it had technical problems during the registration process. When I tried to verify my email address, it just kept looping back to the verify email page. I tried multiple times, resending the email, and even uninstalled and reinstalled the app, and it would not work. Very disappointed!
