INSTAGRAM’S formidable YouTube rival IGTV is now available to download – and social super-stardom awaits you.
The app lets anyone upload vertical videos up to 60 minutes in length, giving everyone a fresh chance at internet fame. But you’ll need some slick editing apps to stand out.
It’s easy to think you need a powerful MacBook Pro or desktop computer to edit a slick video.
Then, once you’re done, you can upload them to IGTV and watch the likes roll in.
We’ve rounded up some of the best mobile video editing apps to help you become the social media influencer you’ve already dreamed of being.
1. Apple iMovie (iPhone)
iMovie is Apple’s powerful and popular video editor.
It was originally built for Mac computers, but has since been remade for iPhones – and it works a treat.
You can import clips easily, share portions of your videos, choose from loads of templates and music, and add in titles, transitions and filters.
There are also slow-motion and fast-forward modes, plus picture-in-picture and split-screen effects.
The app can also edit 4K footage, which is great news because Instagram’s IGTV app also supports 4K video.

2. GoPro Quik (iPhone, Android)
Quik is built by legendary action camera firm GoPro, and it’s easy to tell when you load the app up.
Add in your clips and the Quik app can automatically generate an amazing YouTube pro-style video, complete with dance music soundtrack.
It’s basically the perfect way to quickly turn your bundle of holiday clips into a half-decent video.
But you can also piece your final video together manually too, using a selection of available transitions, graphics and music.
The app makes it very easy to export to social media, and it’s available on both iPhone and Android (for free, to boot)!

3. Videoshop (iPhone, Android)
Videoshop doesn’t have any big name backing, but it’s built up a strong following nonetheless.
It’s simple design, attractive layout and strong selection of features make this a hugely popular app.
You can trim clips, add animated titles, text and voice-overs, create slow-mo or stop-motion videos, and even use a neat Tilt Shift mode to add depth to your videos.
It’s also possible to edit the colouring of your clips, add music, and share directly to a range of social media apps – Instagram included.
The good news is that it’s free to download on both iOS and Android.

4. Apple Clips (iPhone)
iMovie dates back to the ’90s, so it’s no surprise that last year Apple debuted Clips – a video editor for modern life.
It’s a lighter, more trimmed down editor (at least compared to iMovie), and is designed to create clips specifically for social media.
It’s an Apple creation, so it’s only available on iPhone and iPad (sorry, Android users), and it’s a seriously strong choice.
You can combine videos, images and music into a single, seamless video very quickly, and then share it straight to social media.
You can add animated “Live Titles” to your videos, voice dictation overlays, and filters and icons too.
And, of course, it’s possible to edit and rearrange your clips, as well as trim the length, or mute/delete portions of audio.

5. KineMaster (iPhone, Android)
Another excellent choice is KineMaster, which describes itself as a “mobile editing revolution”.
The idea is to take complicated professional-style tools, and pare them down so that they’re simple enough for amateurs to use.
You can add in multiple layers of video, images, stickers, text and even handwriting.
There are picture-in-picture modes, a green screen option, and instant previews for your edits.
You can trim, splice and slice frame-by-frame, and you have controls for tweaking the hue, brightness and saturation of your clips.

There are oodles of transition effects (including wipes and fades), plus a host of animations and visual/audio effects too.
And you can also download additional music, fonts, stickers, overlays and other assets for your videos from the built-in KineMaster Asset Store.
It’s a seriously powerful bit of kit, which explains why it’s not completely free.
The app has no cost to download, but you’ll have to pay £2.91 a month (or £23.25 a year) for a subscription to actually use it.
Still, you get what you pay for – and KineMaster is a very impressive mobile video editor.
