10 of the Best Video Editing Apps You Can Get on Your Phone

Adobe Premiere Clip

iOS, Android | Free

Adobe Premiere Clip is one of the big-name video editing apps available for smartphones. Unlike the desktop version, this app has simplified features. Its design is made for speed and efficiency, but doesn’t have as many features, unlike other video editing apps. However, you can still use it to create, edit, and share videos. Adobe Premiere Clip is available for both iOS and Android devices.

Kinemaster – Pro Video Editor

iOS, Android | Free + In-App Purchases

Kinemaster is the most impressive video editing app because it is so simple to use. Whether you have a big or small smartphone, you won’t have difficulty editing your videos. This app uses the space of your screen remarkably well, and helps you arrange your video clips, and add some additional layers if needed.

However, the free version is full of ads, and the developers require you to purchase a subscription to get rid of them($4.99/monthly, or $39.99/yearly). Kinemaster is available on both iOS and Android.


iOS | Free

Splice is an entirely ad-free app, and has some impressive features: you can add text, filters, and transitions throughout your videos. This app also allows you to adjust the speed, and has multiple audio tracks. Splice enables you to import, arrange, and trim clips, which can then be edited individually.

Luma FX

iOS | $2.99

Unlike LumaFusion, LumaFX is a simpler version. This app is all about fixing clips or footage that has errors, especially in color. LumaFX enables you to flip, reorient and rotate footage, and adjust the speed and aspect ratios. You can also apply more additional effects if needed. LumaFX is available on iOS for $2.99. However, if you already own LumaFusion there is no need to buy this app.
