Reviews

  • Bruno LemosDeveloper
    Pros: 

    Works well! Nice UI/UX.

    Cons: 

    You can't edit it to be exactly the way you want

    A couple suggestions: An option to keep the original sound in the background instead of completely overriding it; also a way to choose when I want the song to start (maybe by scrolling the waves horizontally).

    Pros: 

    Super easy to create a video with music

    Cons: 

    Could have more configuration options

    Music from Spotify is a killer feature!

Won’t there be any copyright issues with using music from Spotify etc? The app looks great, btw.

@faisal_hassanx This! It will quickly be taken down for copyright infringement. Also, they monetize their app which will make matters even worse.

Hmm what will come knocking on your door first - the licensing problems or Instagram's native music support for stories? 🤔 Nevertheless, I really support this idea, and I wish makers best of luck. Music is a great way to express yourself.

@igoruphere I completely agree with what you said and it seems like that's where everyone else is at as well. It's a bit unfortunate. As someone who's been in the music industry for a long time, this could actually help the artists. However the law is the law and some labels are almost wishing for things like this to keep their lawyers busy. Maybe @de_ascanio, @victorbaro, @aracem you guys could consider adding a non removable watermark? In this case you could probably get artists backing your project and that could have an impact.

@guillaumebardet another way to approach this would be to offer indie artist music, who need the support most. But I guess it would kill the thrill of choosing your favorite songs or abusing hits that everyone loves for like-whoring. 🤷‍♂️ Then again, it would likely give a valuable key differentiator from Instagram's own content (they are 100% gonna license all of the mainstream).

@igoruphere they're definitely in a tough spot but I am sure the intent is good. Hopefully they will find a solution around this and manage to keep building this project further. Just a few contracts could get them a wide catalogue!

Reminds me of when Mindie (RIP) created a clever hack to upload mini music videos directly into Snapchat. When I shared stories with music, instantly people would message me asking how to do the same. Will play with this. 😊 cc @gregoirehenrion

Imagine all the food that gets cold because people spend even more time crafting Insta Stories!
