Not yet, but it’s coming. Currently, the only official app for Movi is for iPhone (iOS 11).
We are actively developing an Android App for Movi Cinema Robot and are on track to launch in September of 2018.
The first step in the direction of Android Support is an API for Android developers to integrate hardware control of the Movi into their apps. This is currently in development by Freefly, and once available, will be posted on the Movi Support Page.
In the meantime, the Movi powers up with Majestic mode by default, and the clamp will accommodate phones of a variety of sizes (check out this article about size compatibility). If you need to adjust the parameters of Majestic control, or change the motor tuning for your particular phone, or update Movi firmware, you will still need at least temporary access to an iOS device running iOS 11, to configure Movi settings.
The Movi uses an adjustable clamp to physically accommodate all models of iPhone. However, there is a possibility that a 6/7/8 Plus won’t fit if you have a bulky case.
The Movi App works with iPhones running iOS 11 or later.
Most likely. Unless you have a bulky case on a Plus sized iPhone 6,7 or 8, your phone will fit and balance in the Movi.
Yes! Lens attachments are supported on Movi, but you will need to counter-balance the weight of the lens for proper balance. Freefly will have a counter-balance kit available available soon!
Fisheye lenses may be tricky to balance without seeing the Movi in the shot!
Yes! Just touch the screen to adjust the exposure and focus. It is very similar to iPhone’s native camera app.
Majestic Mode gives you direct control over Movi, smoothing and stabilizing your movements in two ways:
- It gives you an adjustable window, where you change how much of your movement Movi will ignore.
- It applies smoothing to the movement outside this window, to prevent jerky motion.
Change these settings to make Movi more responsive for tracking fast action, or smoother for slow cinematic moves.
Yes and no.
By default, Movi is in Majestic mode and will stabilize your footage no matter what you are recording with.
However, there are some things only our app offers. To name a few:
- Record start/stop from the Movi’s button
- Methods such as Echo, Timelapse, Movilapse, and Orbit
- Triggering mode-specific actions such as roll
The beta version of the app may not always be available, but if it is you can find it at gomovi.com/beta. Try it out and let us know what you think!
Movi has a USB-C port and comes with a standard USB cable for charging.
This is highly dependent on the amount of motion during use, and how well you balanced the phone in the clamp. It can last over 8 hours with a well-balanced setup and light use.
Yes, Movi will run continuously if it is plugged in. Note, the batteries must still be installed to handle surges in power as the motors correct disturbances during movement.

Yes, you can! In the settings you can switch between the back and front camera. You can even make selfie timelapses!
The top button triggers our app to start recording. The bottom button triggers super cool functionality in the app, like setting start/stop positions or kicking off a move. There is also an option in settings to change the functionality of the mode trigger in Majestic mode. Currently, you can opt to turn continuous roll on/off or freeze the position of your phone.
Movi has an industry standard ¼-20 insert on the bottom that is compatible with most tripods and tripod quick-release plates.
- The ¼ 20 threaded insert is intended to mount Movi to devices like tripods, cranes, sliders etc.
- The mount is not designed or recommended for use with vehicles or other high acceleration / vibration applications.
Movi doesn’t like to be dunked, but doesn’t mind a light shower. Don’t be afraid to bring your Movi to a beach, but it was not designed as a submersible.
