Fotor for Android and iOS is a free photo editor and collage maker rolled into one. It’s a little light on features when compared to some of the other apps mentioned above, but what it does do, it does well. Our favourite thing about Fotor is the sheer variety of effects and filters that can be applied to your photos, and the RGB spectrum curve tool is pretty cool too. If you’re looking for a basic but reliable photo editing app without any unnecessary bells and whistles, Fotor is just the ticket.
With KineMaster, you can enjoy precise cutting and trimming, add multi-track audio to your work, create 3D transitions and produce multiple layers of video, images and text. The software is ideal for new editors as well as professionals and offers an incredible level of control when editing on a mobile device. KineMaster has apparently been used by a range of well-known film producers, journalists and YouTube content creators. It’s easy to share your work on social media when you have completed it.
Creating a great time lapse video takes a lot of careful planning and requires you to find the perfect location – unless you are using this awesome video editing app. Lapse greatly reduces the time it takes to create a time lapse video by shooting a steady stream of photos and then splices those photos together. Once completed, it renders the video in mere seconds.
HitFilm Express is one of the more professional video editors to make the list. It contains all the features you would expect from a basic editor (splicing, trimming, and audio editing) plus much more. While some users may find HitFilm a little advanced, it’s certainly one of the best all round free video editors out there. The free package includes over 180 special effects.
DaVinci Resolve is arguably the most advanced video editor on the list. While it has many professional video features, its interfaces remain intuitive. Alongside video slicing and trimming you can master audio and correct color. You can also use it to add 2D and 3D titles to your video. If you just want to trim and upload your videos, the rich feature set of DaVinci Resolve may be too extensive. However, if your video project is a little more advanced, the free version of this software is hard to beat.

VSCO is an iOS and Android photo editing app designed for creatives, by creatives. Its features are similar to the other apps on this list – editing, filtering, frames, and more – but VSCO’s biggest differentiator is its minimal interface. If you’re a junkie for a clean, crisp, easy-to-use app, VSCO might be for you. However, a few users have reported technical glitches with uploading and sharing photos. Luckily, you can try out VSCO free for 7 days, giving you a chance to experience it for yourself. After that, VSCO is $19.99 per year.
One big focus of this list is making sure that all the apps are usable for Android and iOS. Many “best of” lists in this category fail to meet that challenge, and are often only vouching for iOS apps (since Instagram is significantly more popular on that platform). With this list, we’re going to make sure that all of the apps are usable on both platforms, so that nobody is missing out.
