That’s right, YouTube! Or YouTube Capture, if you’re on iOS. (Android users can do the same within the base YouTube app.) YouTube Capture offers YouTube’s own mobile recording and editing features, with no limit to the amount of clips you can use or the time your video can run. Thanks to its integration with the YouTube platform, it also offers access to a massive free audio library, and allows you to quickly and easily edit and post your video to YouTube, Instagram and more.
Another free Instagram-owned app, Hyperlapse is a simple app that lets you record time lapse videos and play with your video speed. The app features built in stabilisation, so when you shoot a video while jumping, running or riding in a car, the app will automatically smooth out your video in a way that was previously only possible with a tripod. Like some of the others on this list, Hyperlapse’s functionality is minimal, but it’s so great at these few features, it deserves a spot on our list. The major downside is that right now, Hyperlapse is only available on iOS.

While its analytics capabilities are robust, it doesn’t integrate with Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ or other popular platforms. Iconosquare starts at $29 per month, but large agencies managing multiple client accounts should contact Iconosquare’s sales team for a custom quote.
