Review: Magisto streamlines creation of thematic, soundtracked videos on iPhone

Create quality videos and share with friends from your iOS device with this video editing app.

Magisto Video Editor is a free tool that offers a number of automated video editing options for both new and existing videos on your iOS device. The results are often astounding, and with a number of licensed music tracks, cool video effects, and the ability to run conversions in the background while you do something else, this is a very powerful app.

When you first set up Magisto you can choose to create an account or connect with a social media account of your choosing. Magisto does not require you to connect your account, however, so if you choose to keep it separate, everything here will still work as intended. You can then choose a video from your device or take a new one for your finished video. You can also choose photos, or multiple video clips. From there, it's easy to choose a theme, music, and other effects to layer over your video, though the actual editing tools here are limited. Most of what happens is automated, but with so many themes, the end result often looks sharp and professional and you can test many options. Better yet, once you process, it will run in the background and give you a notification when it's ready to view.

If you record a lot of videos with your iPhone or iPad or if you enjoy editing and sharing with friends and family, Magisto Video Editor is a great tool to have. It's fast, easy to use, and loaded with tools that allow you to customize your videos in fun and exciting ways.
