Best video editing app

Now your iPhone is becoming more powerful to shoot 4K and slow motion footage. More and more dslr cameras allows you to quickly transfer photos and videos to mobile phone/table via WiFi. Since there are tons of great video editing apps on iOS, you can actually create outstanding videos with your iPhone.

With video making apps, you don't need to bring heavy laptop anymore especially when you're traveling during the holiday season. On your phone, you can cut/trim/merge videos, add fun effects, sticker, text, music and then share your creations to Instagram, YouTube or Snapchat directly. Here we’ve updated our 6 best video editors for iPhone and iPad 2020:

1. InShot Video Editor

If you’re looking for the best video editing app for Instagram, you should definitely try InShot Video Editor! You can easily make your video square or vertical to fit Instagram and the new IGTV format. The app covers all the basic video editing stuff, including trim, text, music, filters and speed controls. It also includes some fun features like video frame, adding cool glitch/cinema effect, emoji, voice-overs, sound effect and more.

InShot provides 1080p and 720p HD output resolution and allows you share to social apps. Though you can use the app for free, you’ll pay $2.99 to remove watermark and ads.

2. Onetake - Vlog & Video Editing


Unlike other video editing apps on iPhone, Onetake is specially optimized for vlogs! With it, you can not only batch import videos to split, but shoot and real-time preview the final picture of film presets by its in-app camera. Onetake applies the accurate analog color models on your video quite fast. You may also be amazed by its presets from Kodak, Fujifilm, and Agfa.

Need some vlog music? Onetake has got licenses from the top 10 vlog music producers of the world. So you just tap download and add music to your vlogging video, instead of searching vlog background music online.
