Most of the best video editing software is designed for desktop and laptop computers, but there’s an increasing demand for editing apps on cell phones and tablets.

While many mobile apps, such as Apple’s iMovie, are very basic, KineMaster is a more advanced option. It has a multi-layer interface and numerous features, such as blending modes, chroma keying, and audio mixing. First released for Android devices in 2013 and for iOS in 2017, it’s currently on version 4.15.
