Top 7 Video Editing Apps for Mobile

The video editing craze is everywhere; whether you are a professional videographer, a YouTuber, or a reeler, video editing is required by everyone. First and foremost, not just an edited video, but a highly appealing edited video that encourages more engagement.

We are all aware that editing a video on a computer is a very effective and common practice. But what if you don’t have a computer? Is it really necessary to have a PC to edit a video? The answer is ‘No’.

I have been editing videos on mobile for straight 6 years for clients and learned that you don’t need a high-end computer for video editing. You can do it effectively with your smartphone, but only if you’ve chosen the right video editor app.

So, which video editing apps are best for mobile devices? I tested all the popular mobile video editing apps to figure out the best ones. Here, I’ve listed my top picks for the best mobile video editing apps in 2024. Now, with that being said, let’s check the list.

7 Best mobile video editing apps in 2024

In this list, I’ve included the best video editing apps for both Android and iOS mobile, so that you can work around from your current device with a suitable app.

1. Adobe Premiere Rush

Price: Free | Up to $34.99/₹2800 per month

Adobe Premiere Rush is yet another powerful video editing app designed specifically for mobile users by Adobe. Its cross-platform support is what propels it to the top of the list of top mobile video editing apps. This means you can continue working on your project on any platform you have access to in the meantime. It’s compatible with Android, iOS, Windows, and macOS.

Adobe Premiere Rush is based on Adobe’s most powerful and popular video editing software, Premiere Pro and After Effects. If you use Premiere Pro or After Effects, it will be a perfect fit because it has nearly the same features and workflow.

Adobe Premiere Rush supports multiple audio and video tracks. It includes plenty of effects, transitions, filters, and title packs. The color presets in Premiere Rush are our favorite feature because they blend seamlessly in any video or photo. Another great feature I came across in it is its Pan and Zoom feature, which is very popular in videos nowadays.

Adobe Premiere Rush is designed specifically for YouTube, Instagram, and other social media apps. It promises to automatically detect the aspect ratio of a video clip so that you can edit your videos and directly upload them to social media platforms.

2. iMovie

Price: Free

If you have an iPhone, iMovie is the best mobile video editing app for you. The reason for its popularity among users is its support for other Apple devices such as the iPhone, Mac, and iPad. If you’re a fan of Apple’s ecosystem, iMovie may be your first choice.

The first and most notable features of iMovie are its Magic Movie and Storyboard Movies.

Storyboard Movies includes plenty of video presets, including About Me, Celebration, Cooking, DIY, Gaming, and others. When you select a mode based on the type of video, it preloads a set of transitions, effects, music, and elements that are appropriate for your video. The Magic Movie, on the other hand, generates a video based on the album you select. It includes a timeline, transitions, effects, elements, and more.

You can unlock a new way to edit your videos by connecting your iPad to a magic keyboard, mouse, and trackpad. When a clip is selected, you can use keyboard shortcuts to switch between the five inspector modes — Action, Speed adjustments, Volume, Titles, and Filters.

Another advanced feature that I really like is the ability to add or remove focus points to change the depth of field in 4K cinematic videos. This way, you’ll be able to focus on one subject or object while defocusing the other, or vice versa.

Specification
PlatformiOS, macOS
Multi-track editorYes
Export directly to YouTubeYes
4K supportYes

Pros

  • Automatic video creator
  • Video presets
  • Customizable depth of field support
  • 4K support
  • No watermark
  • Completely free to use

Cons

  • The general theme supports only 3 clips timeline
  • Hard for beginners to use

3. KineMaster

Price: Free | Upto $39.99/₹575 per month

Kinemaster is the name on everyone’s lips when it comes to video editing on Android. It was first released for Android in 2013 and then for iOS in 2017. On Google Play Store, it has over 100 million downloads and a 4.1-star rating with 5.44 million reviews. While Apple App Store clearly shows how iOS users love Kinemaster as it has 4.7-star ratings.

Kinemaster is flooded with different types of video templates to work quickly. The best part is that you can search for them based on your video editing needs, and most of them are free. When you select a video template, a preview of the template will show up and you will be able to recreate it using the Mix option.

Kinemaster comes with a plethora of transitions, effects, elements, and overlays. However, it is not preinstalled in the app, so you will have to download them from its Asset Store. The best part about Asset Store is that it is organized by categories and can be searched. However, there is a catch: you must sign in with a Google or Apple account to access the store.

Another thing I’ve always admired about Kinemaster is its precise control. You can control your video and elements directly from the screen as well as via a dialer-styled bar. It is a versatile video editing app, which means it is ideal for editing videos on phones, tablets, or Chromebooks.

Specification
PlatformAndroid, iOS
Multi-track editorYes

  • Free templates

4. Filmora

Price: Free | Up to $67.97/₹3,499 for lifetime

Filmora, formally known as FilmoraGO, is one of the best mobile video editing apps for beginners. It is mostly known for its desktop version but the app also has positive reviews on both Google Play Store and the App Store. It has more than 50 million downloads with a rating of 4.7 stars.

Filmora has all the common features such as cropping, trimming, blending, masking, adjusting, scaling, and so on. You can add some basic filters and effects to a video with several stickers and texts. You can also add pre-added and custom music to your clips. Moreover, it has an interesting feature called PIP that allows you to add videos as an overlay with custom size. Additionally, it comes with some special features such as Smart Cutout that lets you erase your background and replace sky automatically.

On the other hand, Filmora does have some drawbacks that I don’t appreciate that much. It doesn’t allow you to add multiple audio and video tracks above any clip. Also, it is flooded with templates and presets but they are not customizable, it only allows you to replace the photos or videos from the templates. Moreover, it does support cross-platform to sync with desktop and tablet versions, but it’s only accessible from the cloud storage which requires a paid subscription.

5. LumaFusion

Price: $29.99/₹2,999

Best video editing apps 2022
LumaFusion is a complimenting video editing app for Apple users, especially if you are an iPad user. It was launched back in December 2016, since then the app has been the fan favorite and editor’s choice as it has 4.8-star ratings. Recently, on Feb 20, 2023, it was released for Android users too on the Google Play Store.

LumaFusion has the best controls among the other mobile video editing apps. It supports multi-track editing which means you can add multiple audio and video tracks in a project. When you create a project and add clips to the timeline, a visual sound bar appears on the left side through which you can adjust the volume of every clip easily. Moreover, you can control every layer with different options such as visibility, locking, and linking.

Another powerful feature I found in LumaFusion is the Lock and Load Stabilizer by CoreMelt which can stabilize shaky videos in a minute. The best part is, that you also have control over how much you want to stabilize with advanced scale and margin.

Also, LumaFusion has the best color grading options as it provides full control for every aspect of colors such as brightness, contrast, vibrance, highlight, shadow radius, and so on. You can also control the RGB channels, Gamma, Hue, and Tint. Apart from that, just like other apps, LumaFusion also comes with presets, templates, effects, titles, and transitions for videos.

The only downside of the LumaFusion is there’s no free version or trial available for users. If you want to use the LumaFusion, you must purchase it from the App Store or Google Play Store. Also, the multi-track is limited to up to 6 tracks in a project.

GoPro Quik, as the name suggests, is a mobile video editing app highly suitable and compatible with GoPro. The app is specially designed for a GoPro camera, which has two advantages — First, it can operate the GoPro remotely with the help of the Quik app, and second, it can be synced with the GoPro, allowing the GoPro to transfer data easier.

What makes the GoPro Quik so special is it picks your best shots, syncs them to music, adds cinematic transitions, and creates a ready-to-share video in a matter of seconds. The great part is you can share them directly with your social media apps.

GoPro Quik has every feature to create a video quickly. For instance, you can automatically import all your videos and images to the app directly from your GoPro camera. This way, you can mix and mash any video, theme, or sound together in a few minutes.

It also lets you create YouTube shorts and Instagram reels instantly as you can add filters, titles, text, cut, and trim to your videos in a minute. GoPro Quik supports 28 different video formats which cuts the chase to convert the format accordingly.

If you want to do next-level video editing through this app then this is not for you, as it does not have that much advanced features and control. This app is only for user-friendly video editing and for those who want to make a video quickly.

Specifications
PlatformAndroid, iOS

Filmmaker Pro would be your perfect choice when it comes to professional-level video editing on iOS devices. The best part of this app is that it comes with 46 different transitions with 30 different filters as well as support for 4K video editing on iPhone SE and later, and iPad Pro.

Filmmaker Pro has all the common video editing tools such as video trimming, splitting, duplicating, and speed controller. It offers all video grading controls such as brightness, contrast, saturation, exposure, and white balance. Apart from that, it also has some advanced editing features such as chroma keying, video grading, and picture-in-picture editing.

The best thing I found in Filmmaker Pro is its timeline which is color-coded. This makes it easier for users to manage the elements easily. Also, it is loaded with tons of fonts, stickers, elements, and royalty-free music.

On the downside, the app requires a paid subscription to access most of the features and get rid of the watermark on every exported video. Also, it lacks multi-track support which means you cannot edit videos with different layers.

  • Grants access to more than 500 royalty-free music
