InShot App Review: Covers both free and pro version.
- What is InShot App?
It might be challenging to locate a video editing app that offers everything you need in one spot. If you want to utilise effects, filters, and stickers, you may have to do it in one app before trimming your video and adding music in another. What if you wish to combine various films using blank canvases and photos? You’re already on three different applications, which might imply three different premium memberships to eliminate adverts and watermarks.
The InShot app fixes this.
InShot is a feature-rich mobile picture and video editing software for iOS and Android that allows you to dive down into a variety of editing and enhancing choices. This programme allows you to do about everything you’d want to do to a movie, and there are many pricing choices so you may invest as much or as little as you like.

InShot App Key features
All the tools are easily within reach in a strip just above the timeline. If you can’t see the one you need, try scrolling left and right. All the usual ones you’d expect are present and correct: you can trim footage, split it, delete unwanted sections, alter the volume of each clip, duplicate some, rotate or flip others, create freeze frames, speed up a clip, play it in reverse, or move selected clips around. For a small mobile app, it’s got everything you’d expect.

And yet there’s more: you can apply filters, or effects (those that aren’t free can be previewed, but you won’t be able to use them in your project until you pay the piper). You also have full control over visual adjustments, such as Contrast, Tint, Saturation, Shadows, Sharpen, it’s a pretty comprehensive set of tools.
It’s also possible to add transitions between clips. Only a handful are free, but the rest, just like the effects, are free to preview.
When it comes to audio, you have a long list of sound effects you can add anywhere in your project. You also have access to numerous tracks which you can download and use. Some are free, others request a donation.
InShot Video Editor can also be used to prepare photos for sharing online. You won’t have access to any of the video editing tools, but you’ll be able to crop the photo so it fits a specific canvas, apply a filter or effect, adjust its parameters, add a sticker or some text, rotate or crop your image. Pretty much everything you can do with video, you can do with that one image.
There’s also a ‘Retouch’ option, but this is actually a promotion for another free app called ‘Peachy’ from within which you’d be able to perform retouch alterations on your image.
Working with multiple photos doesn’t collate all your selected images into some kind of animated video project. No, when you’re ready to share them, they’ll be saved as individual files.
Also, unlike Video projects which you can save as Drafts, you can’t save your work for later: you need to finish your modifications in a single session. If you haven’t finished, yet would like to go back to your video project, the only option open to you is to discard all the alterations you’ve done. This is a weird constraint which greatly limits the potential of this part of the app.
You start by selecting between one and nine images from your Camera Roll. You have eight presets which you can choose from. Reordering photos is a simple matter of a long press and drag. Zooming in and out, and altering the crop is done using the usual multi-touch techniques.
You even have the ability to add a border outside the collage, place one between all the photos, and even choose how rounded you’d like those borders to be. You’re stuck with white for the border though.
Frustratingly, the same limitation applies with Collage as it did with Photo: you need to complete your work in one session.
On the plus side, neither Collage nor Photo have a watermark added to the completed image when you’re working with the free version of the app.
InShot App Reviews
Why should you install InShot App?
InShot Video Editor is a really nice programme. It’s easy to use, and the UI is perfectly suited to editing basic films or photographs.
Many functions are available for free, and if you want to use this app on a regular basis, you may do so with one-time payments or subscriptions.
We miss the ability to pan and zoom over a picture, and we’re perplexed by its archaic export technique, but it’s definitely worth a try if you’re looking for a new video editing tool.
