5 of the Most Popular Mobile Video Editing Apps

Social media has made it fun and challenging to capture and edit video clips on the go.  And whether you are seasoned pro or just casual hobbyists, there are several QuickSeries Custom Apps that can help improve your mobile video editing capabilities.


Generally considered to be the benchmark for Apple iOS (iPhone) mobile video editing applications, iMOVIE is a must have for anyone looking for video editing on the fly—and on the go.  Of course, the main attraction to this mobile application is probably its remarkable similarity to the Mac desktop version; and that software makes it incredibly easy to splice footage together as well as post-production editing options like adding titles, music, underscoring, voiceovers, and photos.  It also features several “TV-style” templates and movie trailer themes.


What iMovie is to the Apple iPhone, PowerDirector is to Android devices?  In many regards, the two are quite similar in both their features as well as their user-friendly interfaces.  With Powerdirector, you can quickly arrange and trim clips, add titles, and utilize a fair set of transitions.  But while iMovie may cost you a few bucks, Powerdirector is available in a free version.


iMovie may be the most popular iOS mobile video editing application, but it is not necessarily the best.  iMovie is best for casual use but Pinnacle Studio Pro is a popular among professional video editors.  One of the longest running and most well-established video editing software suites on the market today—its native desktop version has been around since the 1990s—it provides a fast and intuitive interface with great control over speed, titles, pan, zoom, transitions, audio, and even picture-in-picture.


Known originally as Replay, this app was mostly designed for Instagrammers. Of course, anyone who likes to post and share pics and videos can use this app with ease.  And that is actually what it is known for best:  speed. Quik lets you tweak your videos by editing style, font, and pace using various filters and trims.  And the app is now owned by GoPro, offering free access to 28 varied audio styles as well.


Carrying the Adobe name, this app is remarkable because it is free—and available on both iOS and Android devices.  But while Premiere is known for its premium features on desktop, the mobile version is surprisingly simple. Perhaps, though, that is for the best since this app is actually designed more for speed than anything else.  This mobile application is straightforward and, while not necessarily rich in features, is pretty decent for anyone who is already quite versed with Creative Cloud.
