16 Jan THE BEST APPS FOR VIDEO EDITING ON A PHONE
“What are the best apps for video editing on your phone?” is a question I get asked a lot.
I’ve played with many apps to see which are easiest and intuitive to use, and which have the best features and also, support editing both vertical and horizontal video.
So, here we go! My favourite apps for editing video on iPhone and Android are…
On iPhone only – Enlight Videoleap is simple to use and has everything you need with lots of extra cool features, like filters, lots of effects, speed change and reversing video. The free version has all you need to get started and if you find you like the app (which I do!) it’s great value to upgrade to a subscription.
You can add music via tracks saved on your phone, or DropBox & iCloud.
My fav features – When trimming a clip to the play bar, you get a little vibration to indicate the action and being able to create multiple frames within one frame, is such a bonus.
For iPhone and newer Androids – Rush is latest editing app from Adobe. It’s an upgrade from their previous Clip offering and is a simplified version of Premiere. It has everything you need for basic edits and has recently added speed controls. There’s the ability to do voiceovers direct in the app, a large range of title options and you can create multiple frames within one frame.

My fav features – The App version is free to try and you can save three edits but if you are an Adobe Creative Cloud member, your projects can be synced through the Adobe cloud from phone to desktop, so you can work on your project on either device.
For iPhone and Androids – InShot is another good option worth checking out, with an easy to use interface, and all the features you need. The free version will put a watermark on your film.
I don’t use this app because I’m not a fan of how the timeline functions – I prefer Videoleap and Rush, but everyone is different, so I thought I’d share this anyway, as it might be your cup of tea.
Currently iPhone only but Android is coming soon – Filmm is fabulous for adding filters, effects, speed controls & music. Plus, recently editing multiple clips together is now possible, so the app is potentially a one stop shop for video editing. I’m a huge fan and I used this app to enhance the look of my video clips for my 100 Days of Vertical Video project.
Have fun checking out all these apps for video editing on your phone! Let me know your favourites…
