When the app is launched, the user sees the view of the front-facing camera.[7] The app allows the user to create a new clip by tapping on a red record button,[8] or use photos or videos in the device's photo library.[9] Then, after a clip is recorded, it can be added to a project timeline which is at the bottom of the screen.[10] The user can share their project on social media platforms.[3][9] The user can also add filters and effects to the project.[8][11] "Live Titles" (which come in several styles[12]) can also be created by dictating to the device.[12][13]
