5 best video editing apps

With the launch of Instagram Reels and Tiktok surpassing the number of views on Youtube, it is clear that video is the future for all content creators.

While it does add to the pressure of creating a story line, concept and eventually presenting it as a beautiful video, the editing part seems as the most tedious job.

As a content creator, I do feel the pressure’s sometimes and it hampers my consistency a lot. In the past few years, I have experimented with quite a few editing apps. And its safe to say that I have chosen my top 5 favorite.


The most famous and probably one of the easiest app has to be Inshot. Available both for Android and Apple, this app is loaded with some kickass transitions, text overlays and filters.

If you are a beginner then the free version is best for you. You will get access to basic transitions and unlock various different font styles. If you are a pro then investing in the paid/premium option is a good idea.

Final Cut Pro

The most loved video editing software, the Final Cut Pro is a professional software used by Youtubers around the world. The software is laced with some advanced features such as animated and easily customisable 3D titles, apply superellipse Shape mask to any clip, batch share to export multiple projects to multiple formats and so much more.

If you are looking to invest in an advanced software you should definitely purchase this software. The software costs around INR 25,000, but its a one time investment and you will  not regret it.
