CapCutfor iOS



Free mobile video editor

CapCut by Bytedance is a free video editing application where you can add filters and overlays to enhance your content. While it doesn’t have as many tools as competitors like InShot Video Editor, Video Show, and Video Star, you’ll still have some fun functions to play with. For instance, you can reverse the footage or add some stickers. 

The app is easy to use, while you can save it in any format used by common video players. However, its performance is inhibited by the free system resources your phone or tablet has. Still, you’ll enjoy all the tools that are available to make your content stand out from the crowd.

Reverse, Split Function, and Speed Control

There are three tools you’ll enjoy with CapCut that give it that edge as a video editor. Like TikTok, you can easily change the speed of how fast the content plays. The Split Function lets you choose where you want to cut the video to a specific frame. Finally, there’s a Reverse Function to play the video backwards.

Add some stickers and effects

If your video is slightly dull, you can put stickers at specific points in your video to make it stand out more or to advertise your brand. You can also add text, and other special effect features and filters you can take advantage of. 

Linking music to your content

Videos can be dull without a musical score in the background. If you want to make it more exciting, you can select from various free beats and songs to liven it up. It will enhance the mood and set the tone for your audience.

Our take

CapCut is a stunning video editing app for iOS devices that will enhance your content beyond the basic presentations. You don’t have to settle for plain movies when you can insert music, special effects, and stickers. For extra entertainment, you can play them in reverse or slow motion.

Should I download it?

Yes, especially if you have fun editing videos. However, you’ll need to make sure your phone can handle the requirements for standard or high definition.
