Google is now elbowing with YouTube Capture (free) , Splice (free), iMovie (paid), Adobe Premiere Clip (free) – Android,iOS and several others for the basic video editing turf on mobile devices. Its big pitch – being directly connected to Google Drive.
The YouTube Editor is not the most powerful editor you will ever use. However, it is free, and it includes all the basic editing tools you need to make a professional looking video. It is also an online tool, so you can use it anywhere you have an internet connection, and on any computer that you have access to.
My note: The author forgets to mention that the editor exists now also as an app for mobile devices, thus competing with other “free” mobile apps for video editing such as Splice, iMovie etc.
It can be a great addition to “spice up” videos posted on Instagram, Tweeter and other social media, besides YouTube.
