1. iMovie

Apple’s standard video editing app is already installed in your iPhone. You can shoot your videos with an iOS device, which provides HD-quality footage. Then, go into iMovie and edit in transitions, visual effects, music, and text. The best part about it is, it’s free if you have iOS!

2. Quik
