App Description

With iCaption, creating video subtitles or captions from scratch is made easier, even without prior experience in subtitle or transcript creation. Its interface utilizes timeline-based editing with audio visualization. The subtitle formats currently supported are SubRip .srt (the most widely used soft subtitle format over the past decade) and YouTube .sbv.

What are soft subtitles? Soft subs are files stored separately from the video file. They are called soft, because they are not hard-encoded into each video frame; they are rendered in real-time as you play the video. This means that you can have multiple languages per video file, which you can switch or turn on and off during playback. The downside to soft subs is that you need a video player which supports them, but most modern video players support soft subs, including YouTube.

If you are expecting subtitles to be mixed down into the video file, or to have control over font formatting (soft subs cannot do this but video players which support them typically have global font options), then hard-subbing is your safe bet and iCaption probably isn't for you.

***********************************************************
Note: the developer isn't notified whenever a review is written, so if you are unsatisfied, run into any issues, or just have ideas to make the app work better for you, contact the developer directly with your concern (using the Support link, or the Support menu item in the application's Help menu).

Providing your feedback directly can be more helpful in getting you what you need out of the application. The developer is always looking for constructive criticism and back-and-forth discussion in order to improve on, what he believes, an already quality product.

Of course not every feature suggestion can be met, but there are already several features in the application which were made by request from the customers.

Another reason to contact the developer directly before reviewing, is that Apple does not allow developers to respond to these reviews, so we can't help ease your frustration, which might have an easy solution.
