Funimate is one of the surprisingly popular, but not overly powerful video editor apps. It bills itself as being a great app for making music videos or simple videos out of the stuff you already have on your device. There are 15 video filters that you can play with and the creation process is fairly painless. This isn’t something you’d want to use on a serious video. It has things like video effects. However, it's better for short little social media posts rather than actual video production. You can download it for free to try it out yourself.

VivaVideo is one of the exceptionally popular video editing apps. In practice, though, it's a very middle-of-the-road video editor. It works especially well for short clips for social media. The app uses a storyboard style of editing where you load clips, edit and trim them as needed, and then move on to the next segment. It includes over 200 video filters and various other effects, text input, and fast and slow motion support. VivaVideo has a free version that comes with a watermark and a time limit for any given video. You can remove these restrictions by buying the pro version.


Miss the days of Super 8 cameras? iSuper8 lets you give videos you’ve recorded on your iPhone a vintage look, grading each pixel of your video to give it a unique vintage look. The app allows you to adjust the frame rate of videos you’ve recorded to 12, 18, or 24 frames per second and has number of customizable film stocks you can use to make your video look its best.
Cameo is another really good video editor app for iPhone, developed by the folks over at Vimeo. The app offers very basic video editing capabilities, but works really well. The interface is clean, and intuitive, and if you just want to perform a couple of basic edits on your video, Cameo is the perfect option. The app can import photos and videos from the camera roll, and you can easily trim them, add music, themes, and more. You can even adjust the intensity of the theme applied to the video, to get the perfect effect.
For example, ads for health & fitness apps often feature images of fit healthy people. For action games you’ll notice they often use custom images that show of the characters or amazing graphics. Finance apps tend to show people, money and use the colour green a lot. While educational apps tend to show the app running on a device and often people holding that device.
When it comes to video editing on iPhone, no other app comes even close to the feature set that is packed inside LumaFusion. It is the only outright paid app on this list and it deserve every cent. The app is not only used by YouTubers but even mobile journalists and professional video producers who don’t want to carry heavy camera gear and editing rig where they go.
Ads. You can’t escape them whether it’s on the small screen or your computer. Most of the ones you encounter in your browser exist to push a product or service while occasionally earning the site a bit of cash. It’s something your favorite website may use to survive, but some sites go a little crazy with their ads. Especially when not optimized for our mobiles.

Free video editing software often comes with legal and technical limitations, however. Some widely used codecs require licensing fees on the part of the software maker, meaning they can't offer free software that can handle these standard file formats. That said, the impressive open-source Shotcut does a lot of the same things that the paid applications in this roundup do, including things like chroma-keying and picture-in-picture. Shotcut is completely open-source and free, while another free option, Lightworks has paid options that remove a 720p output resolution limit. Note also that both Shotcut and Lightworks run on Linux as well as Windows and Mac.
It is a video editing application for Android with which you can make your own assemblies easily and quickly. Among its many functions, it highlights the option of video trimming, the possibility of applying video effects (up to 9 different effects), an option to apply filters and the option of ” Frame grabber “, which allows you to extract and save frames from clips of video as images.
Quik is from a newer generation of video editor apps. It's halfway decent if you need something simple. The way it works is you add up to 50 photos and video clips into the app. The app then analyzes them and spits out a short video from them. Quik contains about two dozen video styles and you can re-order and customize your video before you export it. It’s not nearly as powerful as something like Adobe Premiere Clip or PowerDirector, but not everyone needs something that intense. It's free to download with no in-app purchases.
If you do want to enable ads again, you can do so by tapping the ad button from settings in the lower right-hand corner. While the Mini moniker may imply that you’ll be missing some features, that isn’t the case at all. You can do the same things you can in Chrome or Firefox browsers as the pop-up blocking is a bonus, not its main draw. Opera Mini is a fast, full-featured browser and is free to download from Google Play.
Theta has two mobile 360 editing apps for photos and videos, named Theta+ and Theta+ Video respectively. The Theta+ Video app features clip trimming, filters, and background music. Four types of formats are available, namely mirror ball, little planet, equirectangular, and rectilinear. Most importantly, the app is camera-agnostic and can work almost any 360 camera.

Recently got interested when some apps I “lived with” started seriously larding up the ads to force their premium versions. The following block ads in both browser and apps, are free, non-root, light on resources, and open source: AdClear and BlockThis work on Android J and newer, DNS66 works on Android L and newer. I don’t think any are in Google Play, so best to google the developer’s site or GitHub for a reliable APK to sideload. 

NET is documenting the Good Life in a new way. It’s called 360 video and is being used by NET across the state to tell stories from different perspectives and bring new learning experiences to Nebraskans.  Produced using a collection of cameras with multiple wide-angle lenses, the separate footage is merged (aka "stitched") together to create one spherical, high resolution piece. Called immersive video, it puts the viewer in the middle of the shot.
If you are coming from the print world, you may need to rethink some of the things you learned in design school about "simple, clean" layouts. Interactive ads tend to be visually busier than print ads, but that doesn't diminish their impact. The ad should also feel just as native on the device as the app in which it was built. At the same time, you need to strike a balance between grabbing attention not going over the top.
Video editing is one of the most computing-intensive activities around, so you'll want the best laptop or desktop you can afford if you're serious about cutting your own movies. Most applications help speed up the editing process by creating a proxy file of lower resolution, so that normal editing and previewing aren't slowed down by the huge full-resolution files.
