There was a time when video editing was a big deal for most of us but things have changed dramatically over the years. Video editing is the rage in the current period. Most people are finding it easy and exciting than ever before. The reason being the surge of user-friendly video editing apps on the internet. Yes, the internet is loaded with such apps these days. And most of these apps are feature-packed to lure any novice user into the world of video editing. The same thing has happened to me too. I was never ever fond of video making or editing but in recent times, it is keeping me engaged. Yes, I have been busy exploring video editing apps to find out the best one to suit my need. And honestly, I have been lucky enough to find out the best ones!
Based on my research and usage, today I have come up with a list of some of the best video editing applications for your Android device. Not sure if these apps are also available for iPhone users. You need to search for the same. Anyways, Android video editing apps are available in abundant. It was really tough for me to scan through and select the best ones though I have still done my best to put forth the best available applications for video editing on Android devices. So, here you go!
InShot – Video Editor & Video Maker
InShot is currently my most favourite video editing application. I am using it on a regular basis on my Android device for creating and editing short videos. It is a no-fuss app with impressive results. You can easily turn any video into an impactful story with the available features which are good to go for any basic user while if you want to get most out of your video editing skills, you should check out the paid version.
You can also pay to add extra features instead of paying in a lump sum to purchase the app. Payment can also be made to remove certain restrictions in the app. Like I paid to remove watermark restriction in the app. I had never ever liked the idea of seeing watermark in my final output. In fact, it is a turn off for most of us who like to create professional-looking videos.
Inshot is a basically a freemium app. To unlock all features, you can go for the pro version which costs Rs.190/month, Rs.650/year and Rs.1,950 (one time purchase).

VN Video Editor Maker VlogNow
VN Video Editor is a pretty new find for me. I came to know about this app just 2 days back while I was browsing through some article on google news. The reason why I decided to give it a try because of one major benefit which is rarely seen in a video editing app. The ability to export videos without watermark.
Yes with VN Video Editor, you can easily export all your videos without watermark. Isn’t it great?
Apart from no watermark videos, the app is similar in functionality and features to any other video editing application. You can cut, trim, split, zoom, crop, reverse and perform all basic editing in the app.
One thing which had caught my attention was the ability to create round shape videos. This was something new as I had mostly seen videos created in common canvas sizes – 1:1, 16:9, 9:16
VN also has its own social network where you can share your work and engage with other users just like on any other social network.
For the first time users, VN also has a tutorial course on how to use the app for video editing.
VN is a completely free app. Download and get started here – VN Video Editor on Google Play
Quik – Free Video Editor for photos, clips, music
Free and Fantastic…this is how I would describe Quik.
Unlike most free video editors Quick is a feature-rich mobile video editor with the coolest user interface. I simply love it for the adorable templates it comes with. These templates let you create your videos in seconds with all the bells and the whistles. You can also easily create amazing photo slideshows by using these templates.
And of course, you do get an option to remove Quick watermark from your exported videos. Wow!!
Quick is a completely free app. Download it here – Quik on Google Play
FilmoraGo – Free Video Editor
Filmora doesn’t need any introduction. The video editing software is currently the most popular choice among Youtubers. Filmora to me is one of the most user-friendly, feature-rich, robust video editing applications available on the internet today. I have myself been learning it and using it for video editing. And I have to say that it rocks!!
On the contrary, I was a little disappointed to use FilmoraGo, the mobile app version of the highly popular desktop video editing software, Filmora. In spite of being packed with all the features, the app still seems to be lagging somewhere.
One major issue I noticed is the lack of app updates. The app was last updated on Jun 6, 2018. I just wonder why aren’t we seeing any new updates in the app. What is the issue actually? Are the developers more focused on the desktop version?
Anyway, FilmoraGo is still a very nice application for mobile video editing. The features are more or less the same as any other mobile video editor. Watermark in the exported videos is a huge turn off though you can get rid of the same by paying for the removal of watermark.
Apart from the watermark removal, you can also browse through their store to purchase any other required features like collections, filters, overlays, elements, titles, transitions, opener, etc… Pricing ranges from 160 to 400.

VivaVideo: Video Editor & Video Maker
With more than a million downloads and an outstanding rating of 4.4, VivaVideo truly stands out from the rest of similar mobile video editing applications on the internet. The app is a complete package for video editing professionals though watermark in the final output is very disappointing.
The only way out from any limitation is to sign up for a monthly or annual subscription. You should definitely go for it if you are looking to make the most of your video editing skills. Otherwise, the unpaid version is just fine for basic video making and editing.
VivaVideo was my first experience in video editing when I had purchased an Android smartphone for the very first time. It was a nice experience then and now, the app has evolved into a powerful video application. You should definitely check it out if mobile video making or editing is your hobby or profession.

KineMaster – Video Editor, Video Maker
I am pretty new to Kinemaster. The only reason why I decided to give it a try because the app is categorized under editor’s choice on Google play store.
And believe me, I wasn’t disappointed. The thing what I liked the most is the Kinemaster user interface. It may appear overwhelming to first time users. But if you are aware of the basics of any video editing application, you may soon get comfortable with the app.
Like several other applications, Kinemaster too is feature limited with the basic version. In order to experience the app to its fullest, you must go for the paid version which is again a subscription-based model.
With Kinemaster, you can definitely take your mobile video editing skills to the next level. There are several tutorials to help you master the software. Plenty of such tutorials are available on Youtube. Here is one such tutorial video –
