TOKYO (Tom Bluewater) – It’s been more than a month since I introduced the last iOS or macOS software title. Anyway, here comes a new release. It’s called Quick Sub.

    Dear Tom,

    I have finished my video subtitles, 14 minutes video, yet the app is not exporting the entire video but 5 seconds of it only.

    Please help!!

    What should I do?



    Hey, how can i buy it for the unlimited edition?

  4. Hello,

    If you go back to the Home screen, you will find the button that says Purchases. Clicking on it, you can make an in-app purchase, which lets you export a video at full length.

  5. Fabio says:

    I have upgraded the app yet it is still working the same way as befor, nothing’s changed. It continues to save only 5sec of video.

  6. I don’t know what to tell you. If it’s not working as expected, please contact Mac App Store for a refund.
