11 free apps to edit videos on Android

If you want to show your vacation videos to your friends, it is rare that they want to see a collection of 40 video clips and a duration of 3 and a half hours. In that case your best allies are the apps to edit video directly with your mobile, which you can complement with others to add special effects.

Here we present you 11 video editors for Android that you can use for free, although the usual thing is that some functions are restricted to paying for the Pro version. Best of all, you don’t need to invest a lot of time or effort, as some of them do almost automatic editing.

Magisto

Magistoz

We start the list with, probably, the app that makes video editing easier, Magisto. Its main advantage is that the app takes care of almost all the work for you, so you only need to provide the video clips and wait.

The free version has certain limits – you cannot export the resulting video, for example – but it allows you to evaluate “the magic”. Basically you add the clips, you choose the theme and the soundtrack and you wait to get the result.

Adobe Premiere Clip

Premiere

Adobe Premiere Rush recently came to Android, although it’s only officially available for a handful of phones. If yours is not among them, another option at your disposal is Adobe Premiere Clip, which can also create videos automatically from the photos and videos in your gallery.

The app requires a free registration and then you can choose between creating an automatic or manual video. In this second case, you can trim clips, edit their audio and color, add filters and include soundtracks.

FilmoraGo

Filmora

FilmoraGo is a video editing application that you must use with your mobile in landscape. It has a slightly peculiar interface, Although once you get used to its use, you should move faster than in other similar applications.

As a video editor it is reminiscent of PC editors, allowing some advanced features not available in the competition, such as add voiceover, set transitions between clips or add texts and subtitles.

Vivavideo

VivaVideo is one of the most popular video editors on Google Play, with more than 100 million downloads to its credit. The free version has several limitations and the app over time has been filled with too many additions, but it’s still a good option, with interesting editing options.

Without paying you have to walk with lead feet to avoid the payment functions, but in exchange you have a voice changer, the possibility of adjust clip speed, transitions, ready-to-use music and effects.

InShot Video Editor

Inshot

InShot’s video editor is reminiscent of Viva Video, but with a simpler interface and without trying to go through the box with each click (it also has a Pro version, which is € 29.99 a single payment or € 3.09 per month).

As a video editor you have all the basic options and more, including filters, music, different types of backgrounds for videos that do not fill the entire screen, overlay of text and various stickers ready to use.

VideoShow

Ditorvideo

VideoShow has a lot in common with Viva Video. For starters, it also exceeds one hundred million downloads on Google Play and also has a paid version valued at € 41.99 for life or € 22.99 per year. Stands out for its ready-to-use themes, which add transitions, filters and music automatically.

With it it is possible to add music, sound effects and voice-overs to a video, in addition to perfecting them by filters, effects, transitions and stickers. The Spanish translation is a bit flamboyant – not to mention bad – so you might want to use it in English.

Videoshop

Videoshop

If the above options are too exotic for you, Videoshop is a somewhat simpler editor. The free version has certain limitations, but it allows you to make simple edits easily and quickly.

Editing options include add music and audio effects, trim video clips, add texts and choose between the four available transitions to change from one clip to another. The voiceover, reverse, rotate and tilt tools are reserved for the paid version.

KineMaster

Kinemastar

A more traditional option is KineMaster, a video editor that behaves more like video editors of a lifetime, with its timeline and its horizontal interface. Although it has a paid version, you can also use it without checking out in exchange for certain restrictions.

With it you can create different layers, add voice, audios and videos easily, in addition to choosing between a good selection of varied transitions, expandable from the own store accessible from the application itself.

Quik

Quik

Quik is Go Pro’s official video editing app. It’s basically a must if you have one of their action cameras, but works equally with the videos on your mobile that you have saved in your gallery.

As a video editor, you can use it at two speeds: Semiautomatic or manual. In the latter case you have the possibility to adjust the order of the clips, the speed, choose between different types of clipping and add texts.

PowerDirector

Powerd

CyberLink PowerDirector is another heavyweight of video editing. Its Android app exceeds 50 million downloads and works smoothly similar to a traditional video editor for PC, with multiple tracks on the timeline.

You will need a mobile with a screen large enough to take advantage of it, but in exchange you can change the speed of a clip, add music and sound effects, filters and choose between a large selection of transitions.

Youcut

Youcut

Finally we have YouCut that, despite what its name might suggest, does much more than cut videos. Really is about a complete video editor that in little or nothing has to envy InShot Video Editor, from the same creators.

With it you can put together several video clips and photos, trim them, add effects, texts and emojis, choose effects, add music and record your voiceover. The free version has certain limitations that are removed for a single payment of € 9.99 or € 3.99 per year.
