The Best Video & Editing Apps for IGTV

As IGTV continues to grow, more and more people are utilizing this new feature to curate videos and content that are both engaging and unique. The best part about IGTV? You can create videos right on your phone with the help of a few key apps. We’re going to highlight a few of our favorite apps that you can download and start using to make your IGTV videos even better! Read on for our top picks.

Splice

When it comes to creating professional-looking videos that are completely customizable, Splice is a great option. It has a similar performance of a desktop editor, except it’s on your iPhone! We love that it’s also accessible through iPad or iPod touch. You can adjust transitions, add effects (such as slow motion), trim clips, sync your video to the beat of music, and more.

Videoshop

This is a really popular video editing app, due to its easy navigation and helpful features. You can merge different videos within the app, record your voice over a video, create claymation videos with stop motion recording, add music from your iPod library or buy clips from the Videomall, and much more. Videoshop is only compatible with videos from your iPhone and iPad. The simple design of this app matched with a helpful toolkit makes it a valid choice.

InShot

InShot is a great app for professional and efficient editing right on your phone! You can easily trim and cut videos, merge videos, adjust the speed, change the size of your video (make it square for Instagram), add music or sound effects, add voice-overs, sync sounds with your video, and lots more! There are also lots of filter options for your images or videos. InShot is the most user-friendly of all of the video editing apps we’ve tried.

Prequel

This app is perfect for making your videos a bit more edgy and eye-catching. They have several options for visual effects (VHS, glitch, film, sparkles, etc.) and filters, as well as real-time and postprocessing beauty tools. You can also get creative with music and sound to add to your videos. Prequel is a go-to option to have the most variety for visual effects – you can also add filters and live record directly on the app!

Go Record

This is an excellent option for an all-in-one screen recorder including face cam and editing capabilities. With Go Record, you can record your screen on any app or game on your phone! There is even an option to add a reaction to your recordings using the face cam. Once you’ve recorded your screen, you can easily export them to your photo library, or upload them to YouTube directly from the app. You have the option to add app audio or use your microphone to add in your commentary. Go Record is perfect for creating tutorials, editing examples, how-to videos, and more!

These apps are perfect for helping you create terrific IGTV videos! For the video editing apps, we suggest trying a few of them out before deciding which one works best for you. The most important part is starting out with a solid foundation, so make sure your initial video is high quality before adding effects and things on top of it. Make sure you get creative and have fun with your videos! Your followers will love your efforts — and creating IGTV videos will help to increase your engagement as well.
