Vidify is a moviemaking tool that takes all the guesswork out of editing and lets the user focus more on capturing and less on figuring out how to make their videos look like a professional was behind the lens. Its simple to use features, quick video processing and social sharing options make this a must-have app.
The reason why this app is an extremely useful tool is not just for its ability to create a neat looking video montage. The real pièce de résistance is how fast the app processes and finalizes the project. In general, editing video is one of the most time-consuming tasks due to file size and processor speed, but Vidify seems to zip through the process effortlessly. Creating the video below only took me a few minutes. Now, instead of a bunch of cute little moments of my daughter growing up spread throughout my phone's memory, I have one awesome movie of her that is simple to share with my wife, family and friends.
Its so easy to use as it automatically takes snippets from the selected videos, allows users to add special effects such as black and white and cuts the video montage to music. The only thing the user has to do is select videos, music and "VIDIFY" it. Once completed, the video is saved straight to the user's video library as well as can be viewed within the app's gallery. As for sharing functions, it includes the big ones such as emailing, sending to YouTube and Facebook as well as streaming to Apple TV.
One really interesting fact about the app is its founders' backgrounds, which include an Emmy Award winner, Academy Award winner and previous positions with Capital Group and E! Entertainment. Vidify is the easiest moviemaking tool I've used to-date and highly recommend it to those looking to create cool videos with little effort.
