Top 5 Video Editing Apps Ranked for 5 Different Reasons
Let's dive into the Top 5 Video Editing Apps for editing YouTube video. Rather than offering you 5 apps that hold the same purpose, we have ranked these apps for 5 specific reasons. These are not all the same apps that do the same thing. And you can use all of these apps on both IOS and Android devices.
5 of the Best Apps for YouTube Video Editing
Here's a list of our Top 5 Apps that all hold a specific purpose inside your video editing experience and creation for YouTube.
#5 Music Maker JAM
Coming in at Number 5 is a music app called Music Maker JAM. This app’s interface is super user friendly and makes it very easy for you to start making your own music. Royalty free music is always a huge area of concern for YouTubers; with this app you can actually make your own royalty free music and use them in your videos.
Once you launch the app for the first time, it offers a quick tutorial on how to use the buttons and it’s actually pretty intuitive.
Breezing in at number 4 is the super popular app, Canva. Canva is a great app and website that allows you to create awesome graphics for pretty much any sort of social media platform. What we really enjoy about Canva is that it offers short-cuts to making great Thumbnails for your YouTube videos. As you may know, the Thumbnail on your video is one of the most important aspects of the entire video package. It’s what gets people to click. It’s what users see first inside those search results.
First impressions are critical so make sure that you have a good Thumbnail with big, bold text that’s easy to read on a mobile device. Canva can help you to create those Thumbnails easily.
Rolling in at number 3 is a screen recording app called Screencast-O-Matic. What we really like about this app is that it offers dual function. You can record your screen, whether it’s recording other videos or app demos to make a how-to-video. It also offers a Face-cam option which allows you to place the miniature Face-cam anywhere on the screen. Your face will appear in a small box within the Face-cam, perfect for reaction videos or how-to-videos.
Screencast-O-Matic has been a super reliable app. It’s better than many of the screen recording apps available that seem to crash in the middle of your recording. In addition to the app, you can also use this same service on a website browser by visiting: https://screencast-o-matic.com/
CapCut enters the scene as our number 2 choice. But we must start by saying that CapCut is the gold medalist, top dog, easy-go-to choice for everything you could really want inside a video editor. You can edit video, remove the background with no greenscreen, you can do greenscreen video, you can add really cool transitions, you can add animated text, the options are plentiful. You can format videos for vertical, square, and widescreen. CapCut truly has so much to offer and is 100% free.
So, why isn't it our number 1 choice? Because it can't edit for you (WHAT!?!?!)
VideoEasy is here to change the game of video editing. It's groundbreaking and not so widely known. Our number 1 champion VideoEasy takes the work out of video editing. Yes, VideoEasy is capable of video editing on it’s own. It uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) so that you can sit back and let the robots edit for you. The app is free to download and try; however, it will come with a watermark and is tied to a paid subscription model.
In VideoEasy, you record the video (widescreen, vertical, or square) and after you have recorded you apply the JumpCut effect. The AI edits the video, removing any pauses or dead-space, so that you have a nice clean cut. This app is especially beneficial for vlogging or social media videos as it is a true time-saver. We all know that editing is the longest part of video creation. This app edits for you and saves you so much time.
