Why do u need an App?
Pretty much all gimbals use a proprietary app which allows for tracking and other features.

Edit: smartphone gimbals at least.

I've had the DJI Osmo Mobile 2 and it's nice, but doesn't like to balance large phones, such as the Samsung Galaxy Note9. Plus many times the app drops connection.
For bigger phones you can buy counter balance weights to put on the gimbals. Not as convenient, but work.

Honestly, I don't know why anyone needs an app for these handheld gimbals. They're not tough to operate. Sure you can mess with the joystick and buttons through the app, but honestly, I've used this mainly to keep the cell phone camera straight on at what I'm shooting at, or where i can tilt it and it goes where I'm pointing.

From my experience, the most important adjustments on a phone gimbal, is the roll axis adjuster (goes left and right and prevents the phone from rolling left/right) and tilt adjuster (goes up and down, but prevents the phone from tilting forward/backwards). That's it.

From the pictures it doesn't seem like there's a roll adjuster, but I could be wrong, and it could be the cradle that's adjustable left and right.
I have no experience with this model, but it's 3 axis and states pan, tilt and roll motors in the description.

Yep, 3-axis all have that. I was referring to the main two adjustments you'll make on a typical phone gimbal which will be the tilt and roll.

Having a longer phone (height) will affect the roll so you want a gimbal that allows you to easily adjust this. The pics don't really show a screw to adjust the roll, so I'm assuming it's the phone holder that adjusts left and right otherwise it would be a negative for this gimbal.

I'm assuming you would use the app for face tracking. Anyone know if it will do object tracking?

Few people use these anymore. I'm not sure why. I had the Smooth Q when it first came out, but hardly bring it anywhere because it's a hassle. Plus, if you start a Utube channel, you won't get paid unless you are practically viral.

Not worth the hassle for this level of gimbal, even the one on the Osmos Pocket is finikey.

They have their uses. I've gotten a lot of inquiries during local sporting events and tournaments from parents and hobby videographers. They're far more convenient than setting up tripods, and way better than handheld cell phone shots. It forces people to hold the phone horizontally too.

It's niche use though and most people don't want to have to hassle with removing it off to text or use the phone. It's also easier to just pull out your phone and start recording than have to fiddle with gimbals and lose the shot.

I've owned the Osmo v1 and v2 - the $70, Drop sold Moza Mini-Me is superior all-around. There a few areas they trade blows, but the deciding factors for me were Qi charger built into the Moza, stronger motors to actually handle larger phones and true 360 degree rotation.

Different scenarios, though. In my case, I use an old iPhone on a gimbal when sitting video in 4k, and my OnePlus for quick snaps. Most of the time I know when I'm going to shoot video in advance Smilie

I contacted the company and asked if it would work with a note 9. They linked me to this counterweight which is necessary to make it work with a heavy phone like that.

There are lots of features the apps bring depending on the specific gimbal manufacturer, like panning hyperlapse, Object tracking on a tripod for all types of videos, vertigo/inception shots and more.

No the motors couldn't support the weight.
