There are hundreds upon hundreds of apps you can install on your Android device if your purpose is to take and edit photos, but the market for video editing is much smaller, and that's what enables VivaVideo to stand out among its competition.

An Overview of VivaVideo

As many Android users may know, finding a great app to edit videos like a professional is much easier said than done. While there are quite a few options on the market from which one could choose, they're all basically huge, expensive files that end up sapping up tons of power and lagging the devices down. Although VivaVideo isn't completely a freeware package, it still differs a lot from the competition in terms of size and prize, and there are actually a lot more features with this program that can help with editing video. Available for Android OS 4.0 and higher, this particular program was developed by Xiaoying and has around a million downloads to date. This means there are a ton of people out there who find this editor to be very useful, and it has a solid average rating of 8 out of 10. Seeing as there are a lot of programs out there that allow people to edit video, this means that Viva stands out in numerous ways.

Part of the charm of this program is that it's fairly easy to use. Of course, the more advanced you try to edit with your videos, the more skill you're going to need. It's not as if every single feature is intuitive and user friendly. However, for basic video editing, storyboard creation, and adding some cool effects to videos, this is something that can be figured out and pulled off in minutes. When you're done with your video file, you can render in true HD and even custom-tailor your video's parameters to some social media sites like YouTube and Facebook.

Features of VivaVideo

Upon downloading VivaVideo, you will realize that this is a full program installation, not just a simple app, so the size is going to be larger and the footprint is going to be heavier. Though if you're serious about editing your videos, then these things may be worth it. After all, you can open up nearly any type of video with this editor, so if you're recording on a GoPro instead of your Android, for instance, you can easily open up the MOV file in your editor. Apart from the effects and storyboards you're able to create here, you can even layer video via the picture-in-picture feature. So you can have your videos running side by side, or you can treat your files as tracks and have one playing over-top the other, or some other setup where they're both running simultaneously. You'll get all the features of the program in the free version, though you will have to buy the premium package to remove the watermark.
