As I said many times before an iPhone can be an awesome tool for a creative person, small, light, compact and powerful thanks to a lot of apps. I think it’s way better to own an iPhone than a digital camera, I can’t even want to think how my life would be without it :D.

Now that we agree it’s awesome let’s see what are the most popular iPhone video Apps available in App store. At a quick glance in the store you see what are the best right now, but what are the best video apps all time?

Lucky you, I have an answer for that, pretty subjective indeed but I think useful. So sit back, click install and enjoy!

Needs more features (by Corboar)
I was disappointed with this app because I am not able to split my video up and take out parts that I don’t want. I also cannot add my own slides for credits or titles.
     
Not worth 5 bucks! Worthless! (by Flovas)
Really disappointed with this app! It’s lacking so many options. You can’t really edit video like remove part and audio that you don’t like. You can only work with video that you shoot using the IPad! Who goes to an event and pulls out a iPad to record! Retarded!!!! Apple just stole 5 bucks from me and I would like my money back because not only is this app simple it in no way is it worth 5 bucks.

Super… so far (by Jmshrrsn)
Initial play proved a great experience. Key points:

1. Value for money: excellent
2. Beautifully designed – I can almost smell the engineering and old leather case
3. Intuitive – totally get it.

Now waiting to see how the end films look on the big screen.

(Find it ironic that in this perfect digital world we now have an app to make our films look bad!!)
     
Love it! (by Jenoircha)
Had lots of fun using this- it would be good to be able to edit the ‘scenes’ individually before making the film. And also, I’d like to have the option of just having the camera sound- no real sound. Other than that, I think it’s fantastic!

Music please! (by KLoArnold)
This is a fantastic app for getting your feet wet with stop motion, I’m loving learning about this media. In addition to the suggestions about lifting the frame limits and allowing editing after the film is saved, I would love to be able to add music, please!
     
Fisher Price stopmotion. 20 sec delay max (by Papah)
I really wanted to like this App, particularly after so many positive reviews. I tried very hard to like it, but in the end it just has too many arbitrary limitations that make little sense considering the capabilities of the Iphone.

I was enamored by the clap feature that triggers the shutter with a clap of the hands or a snap of the fingers. Thats a brilliant idea, though in my reading room it would turn out the lights just before the picture is taken.

Right out the gate I wanted to try a time lapse of the sunrise.
With 20 seconds being the max delay, 199 frames the storage cap, and 12 fps the max playback speed, my sunrise was a brief blip of poorly lit wind blown trees.
This is, after all, an Iphone so I’m not expecting much. Certainly not professional level tools, though i am constantly surprised by App abilities. This, however, cant even be called a Fisher Price stop motion tool.

As a retired animator I am very disappointed in the lack of the most basic of features to allow editing of the final results. People rave over onion skin, but that, to an animator, is akin to a music lover raving over Itunes volume control.

Give it some thought and seek input from people who know what they want in an App like this (Animators, Composite artists, F/X artists, etc.). I, for one, would be more than happy to help anyone embarking on a project like this. Most Animators are passionate about their trade and would be excited to contribute. You have but to ask. Thats what movie credits and IMDB.com are for. There are many small animation studios in any town. Google or phone book them.

Looking forward to your updates to address these issues.

Cool app, let’s see more (by TBKAN)
Really? Someone is complaining that having to tap thru the styles is a negative making this worthy of deletion? This is a great free app and the developer should be supported, not criticized over minor details. Would like to see higher resolution and wider aspect ratio, but other than that, thumbs up!
     
Great app! (by Leonardo M. A.)
Great app, with interesting features.
Does what it says.
And the new possibility to edit what we shot in the iMovies is great!
Keep up the good work!!

5 stars if there was a custom preset option and batch mode (by LiTunes)
Once you create your custom effect there is no way to save the effect for future use and there is no way to copy the effect to several clips (batch mode), thus extra time is spent recreating the effect for each clip. Otherwise, it’s a great app for spicing up your video.
     
iPod touch 4g (by Doofenshmirtz)
I like the grading features. It’s something missing from most editing apps. I like the choices.

I only put a 3 star rating because the render time is awful. 2 layers of effects on a 20 sec video took around 10 minutes. Some basic editing apps take a lot less time. Update this and this app will easily get 5 stars as it is useful.
