Clips for iOS enables you to make and share quick, fun, and effects-filled videos.


Easy to start: Just press the big, red "Hold To Record" button to begin your recording. Pinch and drag while recording to smoothly zoom and pan. You can also use an existing photo or video from your Photos library.

Facile cutting and reordering: Tap the scissors button to begin trimming your clip. Then just drag the playhead arrows to the desired start and stop positions to shorten your clip. You can also easily reorder multiple clips via swiping.

Muting: You can mute a clip after recording by pressing the sound button.

Live Titles: The Live Titles feature lets you speak titles and captions that appear in the video as soon as you say them. Choose your preferred style and, if needed, tap any Live Title to adjust text or punctuation or add inline emoji.

Many more effects: Use the top menu bar to add a mix of text types, filters, timestamps, titles, and music tracks that adjust to match your video length.

Intelligent sharing: Over time, Clips will learn the identities of those you record and share with most and begin autosuggesting them as recipients when you're sharing. Of course, you may also post videos to your favorite social sites, including Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Vimeo.


Not for professional use: Clips is a lightweight video editor, so don't expect to find the robust feature set you'd find in iMovie or Final Cut Pro.

Bottom Line

Clips for iOS is a fun, lightweight video editor that you'll certainly enjoy.

Developer's Description

Clips is a new app for making fun videos to share with friends, family, and the world. With a few taps you can create and send a video message or tell a quick story with animated text, graphics and emoji, music, and more. Videos made easy. Clips lets you create videos in real time using simple controls -- no timeline, tracks, or complicated editing tools. Shoot live video and photos or add them from your library. Easily mute audio, adjust the length of your clips, and reorder them. Clips looks and works great on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Live Titles. Create animated titles and captions using just your voice. Captions are generated automatically as you speak and match the timing of your voiceover. Mix and match different styles throughout your video. Tap your title to adjust text and punctuation or add inline emoji.

Fun effects. Give your photos and video clips a comic book look with color and black & white filters. Drop in animated speech bubbles, arrows, and banners. Add emoji on top of any photo or video clip. Use full-screen posters with animated backgrounds and customizable text to help tell your story. Drag and pinch while recording to add smooth pan and zoom animations to your photos and videos. Add a music track from your library or use built-in soundtracks that automatically adjust to the length of your video. Smart sharing. Clips suggests people to share with based on who is in your video and whom you share with most often. Tap a person in the share sheet to instantly send your video via Messages. Send directly to Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and other popular social media sites.
