The Best Mobile Apps for Video Editing

Looking for a video editor that can work on your mobile phone?

10 Best Mobile Apps for Video Editing | iOS & Android

During the pandemic, it became very popular to order goods and services at home.

Sometimes the very products do not need visualization, but some are bought precisely because a photo or video that describes its main functions is presented.

For internet marketing, it’s not enough to simply shoot a video on your phone and post it.

This is a whole process, and a quality video editing application will be your main assistant in this process. 

Today we’ll take a look at the top 10 video editing apps and show you their pros and cons.

Let’s get started reading the KineMaster review, the Splice app review, and the reviews of these other video editing apps.

TOP 1 – KineMaster

The program has powerful settings that allow you to cut and glue separate fragments of audio and video files, adjust brightness, saturation, set contrast, apply special effects and filters, share high-quality Full HD tapes on social media, YouTube, and Dropbox.

In addition, KineMaster contains twenty-five themes and a large number of special effects.

Using a voice recorder allows you to share personal comments, and embedding a picture in a clip will create the impression of slowly zooming in or out, simulating a sense of presence and immersion in the picture.

This app will be a good option to use for big projects like Bitcoin trading platform or any e-commerce website.

Splice app review

Splice App Review: Splice Overview

Splice is high-quality software for gadgets from Apple.

Splice is able to quickly create new clips using media stored in the device’s gallery. The utility has an impressive music library and supports downloading tracks from iTunes, allows you to trim clips, apply filters, set up stage transitions, record sound comments, and add captions. 

Splice is equipped with a simple and user-friendly interface provided with an algorithmically consistent guide to creating a creative product.

Splice App Review: Splice History

In 2016, Splice won the Stevie Award for Women in Business.

That same year, GoPro bought Splice.

Splice App Review: Splice Testimonials

In his Splice app review, Travelvids calls Splice one of the best video editing apps. He claims Splice is good at everything. He observed Splice became even better after GoPro acquired Splice.

Ryan Harris agrees. “There are endless things to do in the Splice app. I’m finding more things every day.”

Splice App Review: Tutorial

Here you will find a Splice tutorial:

Allow Splice to access your photo library. Even though this is a video maker, that’s where your videos and photos you might want to use in your videos are stored.

At the bottom of the screen, you’ll see your choices from your video and photo library populating.

If you hold one down, you’ll see the trash can so you can remove it. Holding down also enables you to drag and drop where you want each selection.

Note the time at the bottom as well. Try to keep your Instagram Story video under 1 minute.

When you’ve finished arranging your selections and omitting any you don’t want, and your video is one minute or under, click Add. You can arrange your selections by holding down the image and dragging it where you want in the order in your video.

Step 2:

Select the music to accompany your video. If there’s a particular song you like from your iTunes library, you can select that. I counted 15 genres of music you can choose from. I chose an instrumental I have in my iTunes library.

Step 3:

Format. I chose Portrait orientation since this is for an Instagram story. I kept the default transitions although I’m sure you can change them.

Click Done.

Splice prepared my video in less than a second.

Thinking my project was done, I was surprised so many choices awaited me.

I could add text, effects, and crop just to name a few. I was also given the opportunity to narrate my video.

In order to narrate, I clicked a small microphone I saw in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.

I needed to add text after I finished my video.

To  edit your Splice video:

Find your project. If you click Done, your list of projects should appear.

Find the scene you want to edit and tap on the photo or video. Click Edit.

All sorts of filters appear.

I read Instagrammers prefer strong clarity so I clicked the Text icon.

You can tap to enter text or pinch, zoom, or drag.

When I entered the text, it fit perfectly into my Instagram Story video. All sorts of font styles and color populated. I began to be surprised this app was free.

When you’re finished, you have choices: Share to Facebook, share to Instagram, or save to your photo library.

There is so much more you can do with this app. For example, you can trim the video that you put in your Instagram Story.

Audio: I let the theme from the movie Terms of Endearment play but I still narrated by pushing the big red dot. If you don’t get a red dot, pull the white line to the right, and you’ll be able to record sound. Before you record, you’ll get a 3-2-1 notice.

You can have sound effects too. They range from monsters to motorcycles.

Price: Free

Platforms: iOS

Note: Go cautiously. Splice is a third-party app. I use Splice with Instagram. Instagram frowns on users putting their Instagram user name and password into a third-party app. Instagram will ask you to reset your password.

More information about Instagram’s ban on third-party apps can be found in this article on the consequences of using an Instagram unfollow app.

TOP 8 – Replay

Replay is one of the most popular editors for iPhones and iPads that allows you to combine short videos with smooth transitions and music with photo slideshows. 

There are 24 video styles available, each with its own characteristics. For example, Type lets you overlay slides with animated text, Snappy lets you change the playback speed (from very slow to fast), and Dandy lets you create black and white silent films. 

The finished video can be sent straight to YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, or sent to a friend on WhatsApp.

Price: Free

Platforms: iOS

TOP 9 – VidTrim

VidTrim is a video editor for Android with a very simple interface. Suitable if you do not want to dig into the application settings, but improve the captured video with one button. For example, you can quickly cut out a bad section by clicking on the scissors icon, flip the video, lower the quality, or overlay the soundtrack.

The program provides a standard set of effects, such as vignetting or converting to black and white. In addition, VidTrim allows you to extract frames from videos in the form of static images, as well as save audio in mp3 format.

Price: Free

Platforms: Android

TOP 10 – iMovie

iMovie is Apple’s proprietary editor, in which you can “glue” videos shot with the “Camera” and other applications.

The program allows you to cut out unnecessary fragments, rotate frames, speed up / slow down playback, apply filters like in Instagram (there are ten of them – Black and White, Blue, Camo, Duotone, etc.), as well as sound and text.

You can edit the sound yourself. Users are given the opportunity to connect the sound effects built into iMovie to the video, overlay their own music from the i-device’s library or off-screen comments in the form of an additional audio track.

iMovie Testimonial

Travelvids calls iMovie “Great for Making Dynamic Videos.”

    This is great to know. I have a hard time editing video on my phone and usually use Camtasia on my desktop. I will definitely save this.

      Hi Rebecca,
      Great to hear from you. Is Camtasia free? I have a friend who uses it but I think it’s paid, so I have stayed away. Bookmarking is a great idea. I’m glad you found the post helpful.
      Thanks for commenting.
