Thanks, Upset User, for alerting me to that, or I might have missed it. NOT COOL.

I don\'t appreciate the fact that they wait until you install the FREE version to tell you that a watermark will be installed throughout the video unless you buy it. Just because of this - I will uninstall it and I don\'t care if it is free. I won\'t be using this.

I really appreciate this information regarding why it is that I CONTINUALLY get sideways videos from two people who send me iphone videos all the time. So, please let me know if I am correct . . . .the i-phone should be held horizontally, NOT vertically. YES? If so, I still have one more question . . . should the top of the phone (where your ear is placed when speaking on the phone) should the top be facing RIGHT or LEFT???? Thanks so much for your answer.
