23 of the Best Mobile Video Editor Apps For iPhone

So many people say "sure I can film", but if only I could edit.

Editing completely freaks people out!

At Travelvids.tv we believe that it's actually all about the filming, not the editing. If you shoot to edit, your editing will become as easy as painting by numbers.

But, naturally you still have to know the process.

The good thing is the process of editing a video is almost the same on all smartphone video editing Apps.

Don't believe me?

Then do yourself a favour and watch us demonstrate the the same video edit across multiple different Apps in this article.

We are going to have a look at all the top mobile editing Apps look in the article. 

Mobile Phone video editing is getting easier...

Now just because the process is the same for all platforms doesn't mean you will like working on all of them.

Some are better designed to get the job done fast and others to add fluffy animated emoji icons.

Depending on your style of desired video, workflow and video outcome needs, there might be one app "better suited" than another.

Perhaps you just don't like working a certain colour interface.

We are going to give you the 23 best rated app the iStore & Google Play store have to offer. Below are 3 charts.

Each is filled with Mobile Device Editing Apps according to the operating system they were designed for.

We have included the name, developer, app rating as per the public in 2020 as well as a two tier pricing info.

Please note that these prices are obviously subject to change according to the apps developers discretion.

I will explain the pricing in a little more detail later on in this article.

02: Cute CUT Pro

Ana from adespresso said, I’ve used Cute CUT when I needed to create Instagram Story Ads quickly (but make sure you choose the portrait view).
It lets you draw right onto the video, and you can add drawings, shapes, and text to only the specific segments of the video that you want.
This is extremely helpful.
Cute CUT has a Base app (which is a free video editing app) and a Pro app, which is only $5.99. Price April 2020
If this is an app that you see yourself using often, go for the Pro version. It’s available for iOS and Android.

03: BeeCut-Video Editor

Brad from Footagefixer had this it say about Bee Cut, the most exciting aspect of BeeCut is its intuitive interface that doesn't require any experience to navigate.
It has a plain timeline at the bottom, a preview area on the right side of the screen, and an online editor like a toolbar on the left-hand side. Brad says if it be a free editing tool, my answer would have surely yes.
But spending around 80 bucks for a basic level editing tool is something I won’t back.
If you’re a serious movie maker, you can get a much better deal in VideoStudio Pro for a lesser a much lower price.
Even some free options like VSDC and OpenShot are superior to BeeCut.

05: InShot App

Thomas from Obelo had this it say about InShot app is an all-in-one visual content editing app.
It allows you to create videos, edit photos, and create image collages.
The app has plenty of features too.

You can trim clips, change the speed of your footage, and add filters, music, and text. You can also flip and rotate footage, which is a handy feature that many other apps don’t have.
The downside is that you do need to pay $2.99 to remove the in-app ads and the watermark added to videos.
That said, InShot app is simple to use and has everything you need.

This app is perfect for creators who want an app that does it all without too many frills.
Pros: All-in-one functionality.
Cons: Watermark and ads included with the free version.

You can trim seconds easily, slow footage down, or merge multiple clips into one all in this one app.
As an easy to use mobile video editor for Android and iOS, this app is excellent for fast editing, adding filters, sound effects and so much more.
Other features include adding text, attaching a soundtrack to your video, enhancing filters, and animated transitions.

With all these features to play with you wouldn’t need another video editor app to promote your business.

Cons: Only allows for one audio recording at a time.

07: Filmmaker Pro

Cat Ellis from Radar Tech has this to say about Filmmaker Pro. 
Filmmaker Pro is a slightly more advanced alternative to iMovie, with particularly good colour options, filters and green screen support.
This iPhone video editor includes color grading (something iMovie lacks) and enables you to choose between nearly 200 different fonts for your text overlays.
Filmmaker Pro can shoot video too, but not in the free version; like many such apps the full feature set requires in-app purchases.

Unlocking removes the watermarks that the free version puts on video, and you can choose between monthly and annual subscriptions. Like iMovie, it supports 4K video on most iPhones and iPads (iPhone 4K support begins with the iPhone SE).
Some special features include, Advanced editing tools, Includes 30 filters and 17 transitions, Audiometer assisted voiceovers

10: PicPlayPost

Mel Martin from engadget said this about PicPlayPost in 2014.
PicPlayPost has been around a while, and the iOS app continues to evolve and improve.
This free app (with one in-app purchase option) creates lovely collages that can contain video, audio, and even GIF animations. I like collages, and create them all the time with my landscape photos, but they are nice for vacation photos, holiday parties, sports events, anything really where you want to make something memorable and share it with others.

These 5 apps go both ways.

The developers saw to it that they would support the Android & Apple worlds and have produced some pretty solid applications.

You will notice that VivaVideo by QuVideo Inc. has had over 100million installs on Android devices alone.

It is the highest rated video app in the Appstore with a 12+ rating and the best thing is it only costs $3 to get the watermark removed so you can get going.

This is out top pick from this list and we will bring you a demo video very soon.

Another interesting app on this list is Quick.

This app is an automation app that makes your video for you.

It syncs it all up to great music and even produces weekly videos for you without doing a thing. (Well you need to obviously go film something).

We like it, but we are not mad about it as you loose control over making the video truly your own.

Great place to start, but you will want to progress fairly quickly.  

Pricing

Before we go on to Android's Top 14 Editing Apps I want to talk about the 2 pricing columns.

Every app's developer has their own way of making their money.

Some developers like GoPro just give it away for free to promote other products like their Action cameras. (Thats why we love them).

Others have subscriptions that cost you weekly or monthly, but most of them give you free access and then charge you small money to remove adds and/or watermarks.

The Price Tier 1 is what you can expect when you first download the app.

If it just says In App Purchases then you can assume the download and use is free but there might be a catch.

If there is such a catch I will put the most important aspect of it in the second Tier.

This means you need to consider this cost before you can make videos the way you imagined them.

Subscription services are not all bad as you only have to pay for a month when you will use it and let it expire until you want to use it again.

* Some apps have extra features like filters that you don't need but can unlock for cash or Tokens.
**  /v  per video export            /m  per month subscription           /y   per year subscription

Almost all of the apps here are "free" to install, so you can test it and see if you like it. So go wild, or just trust us and use the ones we recommend.

The list of Android editing apps goes on and on and on...

We settled on giving you the top 15 based on how many times it has been downloaded and the highest public ratings.

Our Top pic is definitely PowerDirector.

It's really easy to use, the layout is the closest you are going to get to a desktop editing suite and it only cost $6 dollars to unlock the premiere package.

Winner. Want to see how it works?

If you have opened the other article we've linked to twice already you've probably already guessed that Splice by GoPro is up there on our list.

It's completely free and easy to use BUT, yes there is a but, it's not the best layout and it has a few limitations.

It's a perfect App to get started but the great thing about Apple is that the best app out there comes free with your device: iMovie. We will bring you a demo video asap.

That wraps up our Smartphone Editing Apps selection for 2020.

We can assure you it's all about personal preference and taste.
