App Overview (from iTunes): With a streamlined design and intuitive Multi-Touch gestures, iMovie lets you enjoy your videos and tell stories like never before. Browse your video library, share favorite moments, create beautiful movies, and watch them on all your devices in iMovie Theater. And with the iMovie extension, it’s fast and fun to make every video more memorable — right in the Photos app.

What I Like: This app also lets you have multiple projects like Clips. It allows on the timeline a mixture of both portrait and landscape videos and photos. The auto ducking audio feature is great and you can choose which clips you want audio from and don’t. The fade in and out is great and sharing is very easy. The adding a filter to the entire project or to select clips is really cool. Also being able to overlay video on top and/or create a picture and picture effect is very nice.



What I Don’t Like: The title tool is rudimentary and not easy to use right off the bat to make it do what you want. There’s no transition function on overlay clips. The speed function within the app to slow down/speed up clips is not very good. Trailer function doesn’t work well if you don’t have the right set ups. It just looks weird.

What I Think is Special About the App: This is a highly robust app that had more bells and whistles than I really expected. It’s the closest thing to a full pro video app I’ve seen on mobile, and can make things super complicated if you aren’t careful. It’s missing some key functionality to make it truly pro, but what you get for free is quite impressive.
