The gorilla of discount voucher sites had 52.7 million active users at the start of 2017. As one of the world’s fastest growing companies, Groupon has spawned many copycats, but is staying ahead of the competition with its focus on creative copywriting.

Quik also has the option to add a title to the video.

Offering up a free Ad blocking service is also a surefire way to lure folks in if you are a developer with a shady application. As we all know, downloading a bad app can cause a whole new set of problems as your next stop may be searching for a Malware detector. We’ve compiled a short list featuring a few great options, but also have some tips to keep in mind as well.


A great video isn’t just about images. Without clear audio you lose much of the emotional impact. Music can make a big difference in immersing your audience into your experience. Often time camera pick up white noise such as wind, which can take away from the playback experience. Why not add a soundtrack to your video to set the mood you want share. Be sure to pick a soundtrack to compliment the action on screen.

ActionDirector is one of the most popular video editing apps on PC. It's also available on Android. It does the basics. You can import clips, edit them, and render the video. You can do things like add your own music, trim and cut video, add text, employ slow motion, and more. It's one of the few video editor apps that also supports 4K video. You'll have to check and see if your device supports it, though. The developers have a nifty tool linked in the Google Play Store to see if yours can. It also gets frequent updates.


Sometimes a browser with a pop-up blocker isn’t going to cut it. If that’s the case for you, you may want to look into Adguard for Android. The popular app promises to filter all the nastiness out of the web to give you a clean and trouble-free browsing experience. That said, you’re not going to be able to get the real deal through the usual means as Google does not like “true” ad blocking software for obvious reasons.
A recent example of effective appvertising is the TRON: Legacy interactive ad for the iPad. The ad runs in an inviting banner within an iPad app. Once you click on the ad, you're able to control the interaction and choose what to do next. Explore the characters? See behind-the-scenes footage? Hear Daft Punk talk about composing the soundtrack? It's all there. You can also check out local show times, download screen savers and even e-mail friends, all without leaving the ad.
360-degree video is typically recorded using either a special rig of multiple cameras, or using a dedicated camera that contains multiple camera lenses embedded into the device, and filming overlapping angles simultaneously. Through a method known as video stitching, this separate footage is merged into one spherical video piece, and the color and contrast of each shot is calibrated to be consistent with the others.[4][5] This process is done either by the camera itself, or using specialized software such as Mistika VR or Kolor AVP that can analyze common visuals and audio to synchronize and link the different camera feeds together. Generally, the only area that cannot be viewed is the view toward the camera support.[6][7]

Finished videos can be saved to your phone’s camera roll to share with others, or uploaded directly to Facebook or YouTube from within the app.
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.
Tips: Most of the free video editors are feature limited, they are easy to use and can meet almost all of your basic video demands like cutting, trimming, cropping, or rotating.

For those who want to create high quality videos in a quicker way, you can use some paid video editors such as Filmora9. Check the video below to find out how Filmora9 can help you in editing videos.

The audio and video experiences are changing constantly with the application of newer technologies. And the latest addition in this regard is of course VR videos. We have so far heard the word audio headset now we have the option of video headset. Yes, you may be or may not be quite familiar with the names like The Oculus VR, Samsung Gear VR and Google Cardboard headsets. The demand of such headsets is increasing and so is the demand of 360 VR movies and videos.

The Adblock Browser blocks all incoming ads by default but does allow users a measure of control. You can opt to let in advertising deemed nonintrusive or configure a list of filters based on different dialects. Depending on your browsing habits, that alone may be worth the price of admission. Nobody wanst to be assaulted with garbled foreign text. There are several other options that can help with your privacy as well by letting you disable tracking, anti-ad blocking messages, malware domains, and social media buttons.
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.

Other measures of performance include startup time and simple stability. Again, video editing is a taxing activity for any computer, involving many components. In the past, video editing programs took longer than most other apps to start up, and unexpected shutdowns were unfortunately common, even in top apps from top developers such as Adobe and Apple. The stability situation has greatly improved, but the complexity of the process, which increases as more powerful effects are added, means crashes will likely never be fully eliminated, and they often raise their ugly heads after a program update, as I found with the latest version of Pinnacle Studio.

Looking to create real estate video to showcase a house? This real estate agent has set up the camera on a tripod in the middle of each room to allow the user to explore the house, room by room. They have then trimmed and edited the video together to allow the user to spend 30 seconds in each room to explore and move around freely. The benefit of 360 video is that the potential house buyer can explore freely and move around the environment as they wish.

There was a time when the dreaded “Pop-up” ad was reserved for folks using their desktop PC or laptop. The annoying ads made their way to mobiles as soon as the platform become relevant, which left plenty of consumers looking for the best ad blocker apps. Unfortunately, there is a problem with that. The vast majority of Ad blockers in the Play Store are less than stellar, and you cannot rely on Play Store reviews these days.
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.
