Two decades ago, the idea of capturing cinematic-quality footage on a pocket-sized cellular device was laughable. At that time, Apple had just released the first iPod, postage stamps were 34 cents, and Outkast’s “Ms. Jackson” hit number one in the charts. 

Smartphones with cinematography capabilities? Nowhere in sight. 

How things have changed. 

Smartphone technology has evolved to the point where filmmakers can shoot entire feature length films with the phone in their pocket. (And they’ve proven this time and time again.)

 

It’s more possible now than ever for new creators to get started in video production without breaking the bank. And it’s given seasoned pros another outlet to challenge their creative limits. 

With a video editing app, anyone can capture footage on their phone and edit it right then and there. No excessive exports, imports, or download times involved. 

There’s tons of options out there, which is great, but it doesn’t take long for the growing lists of pros and cons to get overwhelming. 

What you want is simple: to streamline your workflow and keep creating stellar content. So, to help you find what you need sooner, we’ve created this guide with the eight best video blogging apps available in 2021. 

8 video blogging apps that improve your workflow

Looking for a video editing app with stabilization capabilities? One that’s built for 4K exports and multi-track editing? One that won’t watermark your videos when using the free version? 

Whether you’re looking for a simple option with a user-friendly interface or something more robust and pro-level, there’s something for everyone in this guide.

  1. KineMaster
  2. Quik
  3. PowerDirector
  4. Adobe Premiere Rush
  5. Splice
  6. LumaFusion
  7. Magisto
  8. InShot

1. KineMaster

For mobile users on iOS and Android.

With KineMaster, you can edit your videos and share them on social media without leaving the app. The eight different blending options make it easy to overlay text, images, audio, and more on the multi-track timeline. 

And once you make the final edits, you can export 4K-quality projects at up to 60 frames-per-second. 

(Note: your videos will be watermarked by KineMaster unless you upgrade to a paid plan.)

2. Quick

For mobile users on iOS and Android.

This GoPro-owned app allows you to import footage from any device. Once your footage is uploaded, you can make auto-sync edits to music, color correct, and choose from dozens of filters. Plus, you’re able to save your content to the cloud.

With Quik, your phone also doubles as a remote control for your GoPro.

3. PowerDirector

For mobile users on Android.

This app has more than one million reviews on Google Play with a 4.5 rating, and it makes sense why. With PowerDirector, you get pro-level capabilities and special features like mobile tracking, stabilization, green screen editing, and motion graphics. 

An added bonus is that there’s a built-in stock library with content that you can use in commercial projects.   

4. Adobe Premiere Rush

For mobile users on iOS and Android.

If you’re already an Adobe user, this mobile app is right up your alley. 

Add transitions, import audio, color correct, and share videos on any social media platform with Adobe Premiere Rush.

With the free version, you get unlimited exports and 2GB of cloud storage. When you upgrade to the paid plan, you unlock all of the features and get 100GB of cloud storage (with the option to bump it up to 10TB). 

5. Splice

For mobile users on iOS.

One of the biggest perks of the Splice app is that you don’t have to upgrade to a paid subscription to avoid having a watermark in your videos (as of now).

Splice provides an intuitive user experience, access to a music library, and checks off the multi-track editing box. If there’s a feature you want but don’t have, you can suggest a feature on the website.

6. LumaFusion

For mobile users on iOS.

The LumaFusion app is accessible to you with a one-time purchase ($29.99), though in-app purchases are also available. 

If you’re looking for a pro-level option, this app is a top contender. 

You can edit on the app’s magnetic timeline using six video/audio tracks (and six bonus audio tracks). And you can also take advantage of green screen effects, stabilization, color correction tools, keyframe audio levels, and more. 

7. Magisto

For mobile users on iOS and Android.

Magisto is an AI-powered video editing app that offers Premium and Professional plans. With this app, you get access to video stabilization tools, auto cropping, facial recognition, and an in-app music library. 

Unfortunately, you’ll need to upgrade a paid subscription if you don’t want a watermark on your videos. Whomp whomp. 

8. InShot

For mobile users on iOS and Android.

The InShot app is a great option if you’re looking for a better way to edit social media videos specifically, especially since there are pre-formatted video templates for IGTV, TikTok, and other channels.

You can access vlog music in the app or import the music and sound effects you license from a stock library like Soundstripe. Add voice overs, make quick-and-easy cuts, and take advantage of the different filters and effects.

Wrap up

At the end of the day, every creator needs tools and resources that make your work easier, not harder. That's true whether you're producing music videos, YouTube videos, or any other project.

Maybe you don’t intend to take your post-production process fully mobile, and that’s okay. The great thing about video blogging apps like the ones in this list is that they are always at your fingertips. 

So, if you’re in a time crunch and want to start editing ASAP, you can do that. If you want to edit videos and share them directly on socials through the same app, you can do that too. 

Whatever the case might be, video blogging apps just give you more options during post-production.
