The ads were so obnoxious on the free version I paid $10 for the pro version. But when I added a bunch of videos from my photo gallery it became confused and assigned all the videos the same thumbnail. Now I can't tell which is which. The UI is unusually bad for such a simple app. I gave it 2 stars instead of 1 because it does actually play the videos. UPDATE: I did upgrade to the patched version and it's working fine now. I raised my review to 4 stars because I find I am using it on a regular basis and it does a good job playing and looping my videos at high res with no stuttering.
For some time, this app was very useful and seemingly working well for me without any problems or issues whatsoever. However, later on down the line recently, the app suddenly changed where I can’t swipe or exit out of a video I’m watching on loop. I have to inconveniently close the entire app just to play another video I desire to watch. I even attempted to watch this video regarding this “Loop Deck demo” which I thought would dismiss the annoying ad that was subsequently causing me to only be able to play one video at a time, without the app glitching and not allowing me to exit out the video I’m playing. I was able to do that normally before, but suddenly I can’t anymore. This was what seemed to be the only reliable app to loop videos successfully, now it’s not functional and I’m displeased.
Awful in every way. Warning: Don’t update if yours works now
First off, I’ve been using this app for years. I mean years. Since the beginning. And it was my favorite app. It was simple and just worked. I clicked a video and it played instantly. So I didn’t bother updating it. But since upgrading to ios13, I noticed that some of the thumbnails were incorrect. I saw in the update history was supposed to fix that problem. So I updated to the latest version. And I’m absolutely disappointed in every way! Mad even. First off, now I have to do multiple clicks to simply play a single video. And that would be something that I could get used to in time... if it actually played my videos. Now every single video in my library, which is hundreds spanning across 5 years, will not play and I’m met with an error telling me to delete and relink because the external link is broken. And the icing on the cake is I still have the thumbnail issue. So I can either not use the app anymore or delete it with my years worth of videos and individually locate and relink each one. What!!!! I’ve written one review in my whole history off being an iPhone user, but I’ve never had an app go so backwards before in both its design and usability that I had to write one here. I’m highly disappointed. I’d give it a 0 if the App Store would let me.
Okay so I love that I can just screen record my music and loop it infinitely. I go to a school with really bad internet, so being able to play all my favorite music offline and even outside the app is amazing. The one thing I have an issue with is the theoretical limit on how long or big the video can be until the app won’t work. I’m currently trying to loop a 3 hour playlist and the video is about 2.29GB with it’s FPS and resolution already being really low so that the app can handle it. Sadly, when I try and loop it, the app just crashes.
I downloaded a vid from the safari browser and I needed to get it to repeat but the app can only access vids from gallery and some other places but there isn’t an option for the downloads folder. Give the option to browse the downloads folder.
This app is very easy to use and works exactly as advertised. Simply launch it, browse for your videos and add them to your list, then press Play. The video launches and will repeat on a never-ending loop until you stop it manually. You can even cue up multiple different videos to repeat in a sequence of your choice. The video will keep playing even if you have your screen set to Auto-Lock after a few minutes. An excellent app that gets the job done.
Most people’s aim for downloading an app like this is to be able to save the finished product for social media, emails, etc. I’m assuming, even with the pro version, this is still not possible. The app does run seamless loops, but what’s the point if you’re hiding all that beauty in an app and cannot save it, or even be able to pay to save it? Must be an experiment!
Does a great job looping a video, my only comment is It would be nice to get the source videos from the videos section of the ipad etc...not photos. I load music videos to .... well videos etc... Also we all don't use drop box for everything.....UGGHH. Otherwise it is a great app I would have paid for!!
Have been using for a while and has always worked well until the last update. The update states that it fixed a bug that caused videos to not play, but after that update we cannot get any videos to play at all. Please fix asap.
I pull in videos and put them on repeat to practice playing blues guitar songs up to speed. It is also great for just putting a piece of a song that is particularly hard to play on repeat. It really helps you dial it in!
Used to loop a 14 minute wedding video I had in photos on my iPhone at a reception. Put it in once to try in and it worked flawlessly at the party, looping for hours in the background. So happy to have found the app as it did the simple task I needed very well.
I was using this for half a year and I was looking forward to loop some videos until the videos kept on not playing. It wasn’t all of them sometimes but it was irritating. I put one video after I deleted all of them after that and it still didn’t play. There were only 2 videos I know that work so far which I’m grateful plays but the rest is a no.
Thanks Xorbix for this great free app. I can’t believe the iPad has no native support for playing videos in a loop, it makes no sense to me that Apple would omit this feature. Loopideo is clean, simple, and does exactly what it’s designed to do play videos in a loop. Awesome job! If I can add one suggestion, include the option to upload videos from iCloud and OneDrive, not just dropbox. Do that, and this app will be perfect! Thanks again... great to see excellent products from a company right here in the USA.
Excellent app! I use it for video art installations. Can grab videos from my iPhone's video library and will loop continuously. Best app for this purpose, I have tried many. Very dependable. Highly reccomend!
This is a useless app. You immediately have to pay $3.99 to use it. Deceitful marketing for them to offer a free version that won’t allow you to do anything. At least allow us to loop a video with a watermark. This is ridiculous and you should look elsewhere.
The app works great, loops videos and stores them on the app. The one issue I've encountered is the videos suddenly do not want to play, instead a dark screen will appear and then return back to the select video menu. Please fix, it's a good app
I dont like how the Play/Pause options appear every time a video starts over now. Before they wouldnt show up and the video would continue to loop cleanly. I find this to be very distracting and annoying. I hope you can fix this somehow.
Wanted to use for a Halloween projection display but all this app does is what you could do with your finger each time between plays. The controls and border show up between each loop, making it completely unprofessional and unusable for display purposes.
I never got this to even open a video but after sitting on my phone for about a week I discovered it had sucked up 7.5gb of my cellular data - doing what????? I pay $10/gb on Tracfone - that’s $75 for an app that wasn’t even doing anything!!! What the hell????
