The mobile camera is one of the most important components. In addition to taking photos we can also record with it and so today we bring you the best video applications for Android. A collection with which we hope you get the most out of this photographic use of the smartphone. We will see from slow-motion applications, video editors to add effects and the most fun applications to record with the mobile.
17 different video applications. Some of them are simpler and specialized, others are real editors with a multitude of options and some are very fun with which we will surely surprise our friends. We hope that you discover some that catch your attention, install it in your device and take more advantage of more complex use of the camera than taking photos but also with many possibilities.
With the passage of time, the cameras of mobile phones have taken a huge leap. In addition to more megapixels, we have optical and electronic stabilization, the ability to record video in 4K, make time-lapses and record up to 960fps, in some phones like the latest Sony.
If this is not the case and you have a humbler mobile, there is no problem because with these applications we can convert a video recorded in a standard way into a slow-motion, reducing its speed to our liking.
Video Applications for Android
Videoshop is a video editor that allows us to add all kinds of effects. The one we are most interested in is the slow or ultra-fast motion. We choose the video from our gallery and we can edit it to look several times slower or much faster. It’s not exactly the same as if the camera had made that video natively, but the feeling is the same except that we lose quality.
In addition to modifying the speed, you can add music, animal sound effects, explosions or laughs. You can also join several videos, add text, titles, crop, change the colors of the video. An easy to use an editor that gives us the basic features we are looking for in an Android video application.
Slow Motion Aspiration
We move on to a slow-motion application whose only function is precisely this. We choose the video, mark the speed from -16X to +16X and save it. If we configure it with negative values the video will be processed in slow motion, if we give higher values the video will fly by.
It doesn’t have much more mystery but we must warn everyone that if the video initially took 1 minute, in slow motion logically it will take longer with the consequent increase in size. In mobile phones with little space, you have to be careful.
Slow Motion Effect
Another simple application to record videos in slow motion. It has also been recently updated by improving the algorithm and promising that videos will look smoother on all phones. The Bizo Mobile application lets us record a video with sound and speed it up or slow it down. It doesn’t have much more, but they give us some ideas to make the most of it: an object falling, spitting water, pets running… the rest of the ideas will have to be put by each one.
From the same developer, we have an inverted film. This time the effect we can apply is not to slow down or accelerate, but to record and turn it around. When we press it we will turn it over and we will get very funny effects such as when walking, drinking or throwing something. Another application that thanks to its simplicity and specialization have managed to convince many users who are looking for just this effect.
EnjoyMobi Video Editor
This is a free video editor downloaded by millions of users. There is no time limit on the videos that can be edited. We can add up to 10,000 different song types, edit the videos and share them, add emojis, trim and even record our voice and add it as if it were a dubbing.
EnjoyMobi is quite complete and its design invites the creation of videos. We can also control the speed and apply more than 30 different filters. One of the options with effects to consider if we want to give a funny touch to our videos.
GoPro brings us Quik, a video editor that works not only with your cameras but also with mobile phones. Choose the videos you want, add transitions, create smart cuts, and choose from 23 different video styles.
Quik is an editor that tries to make editing easier with its own recommendations. It’s not so much about slashing and increasing speed, but applying predefined effects always with the quality of the GoPro team.
VivaVideo is Google Play’s most downloaded video editing application. We have a powerful video editor in which we can trim and combine clips, add text, filters, transitions and of course modify the speed either slow or fast. All editing operations can also be previewed.

Cyberlink brings us PowerDirector, a powerful video editor. We have drag and drop, cut, add effects, up to 60 types of transitions, add audio tracks and export our creations in FullHD and 4K, although in this case, we will have to go shopping within the application.
If you have an Android tablet, it is very possible that with Powerdirector you can create almost most of the videos you have in mind. Very thought for all those Youtubers who want an edition on the fly in Android.
The next video editor is Kinemaster. It supports multi-layer editing, cropping, audio tracks, color filters, 3D transitions… an editor designed for amateurs who want to retouch their video even for mobile journalists or Youtube creators who want to produce a short film.
It has a KineMaster Asset Store where you can download more effects, music, stickers and other effects. Of course, we can also modify the speed of playback of videos, as well as their hue, brightness, and saturation.
Music and Video Editor
Inshot brings us another editor, this time more casual and simple. Very oriented to add emojis, filters, music, and text. We can choose when they will appear and the entire interface is designed so that any user can master it quickly. Perfect for Instagram and also supports 1080p video.
We abandon the classic video editors and bring you Paper Camera. Here we will transform the videos and apply an effect similar to that of an animation film.
The best filters cartoon style, watercolor, manga comic or picture … an editor that adds very specialized filters but with striking and different results.
A different proposal. An application to create videos but with a clear social style. The community of Flipagram has more than 200 million users, where all share either in public or private their creations. Music can be added and independent artists are available to share their music. In fact, there are also playlists available.
At Flipagram we will bring our selfies to life and transform them into fun videos. We will choose all kinds of filters, which in fact are updated from time to time. And if you want to discover videos of others, there are specialized sections that have a personalized feed depending on our tastes.

Also, of course, the option to customize the videos with text, drawings or emojis and then share it on social networks or save it on your own mobile.
Efectum is a simple video editing application that allows us to add filters and effects to slow or speed up videos and then share them on social networks. It also allows you to add music and export videos in HD quality.
Microsoft has had for some time an application specialized in creating hyper-lapse. We can choose the normal speed up to 32x faster and apply stabilization. However, it has not been updated for several years and it is a pity because it allows exporting in quality 720p and 1080p and is very well built.
Magisto is a video editor who pretends to do magic. Actually what we have is an editor to which we can apply various effects to congratulate the holidays, give a quiet touch or a retro. The key to Magisto’s success is based on the AI that analyzes the video and decides to edit only the best parts of it. It has facial recognition and that will help you choose the protagonists of the video.
If we want to create a video to share with our relatives or simply we are not very skillful and we want to create an entertaining video of the nothing, with Magisto it will be to press a button, to choose the thematic and already we will have in our gallery our short improved to share it.
