Back in the day, if you wanted to edit video, you needed a powerful desktop setup and a ton of cash. Software like Avid and Final Cut Pro wasn’t cheap–neither was the hardware to run it. But oh how the times have changed.

Now, most modern smartphones are powerful enough to edit full-length movies on–and in 4K no less. Of course, while the tiny smartphone screen might not be ideal, you can’t argue with the results, especially if you use a good video editing app. Here are our top picks for the best video editing apps of 2020.
