Additional superpowers include the ability to combine videos, write over the videos, fonts and more “graphical” options.

It automatically takes your video, moulds it, shapes it and brings forth you a completely edited video. What’s more is it’s completely free, but that doesn’t limit it because more features are available to the users via in-app purchases.

Quick really does live up to its name. It let’s you add a plethora of video effects, which primarily depend on the mood and “feel” of the video.

Slides are supported as well, and can be used for “introductions” or credits maybe? To top it all up, it even supports sharing the videos on social platforms like Facebook and other social networks.

The text effects will really mesmerize you considering their smooth texture, as well as “ease of use”. This I’m claiming from experience, unlike other apps I didn’t experience the “lag” that normally is there with video editing apps on iPhones.
