Apple just released a new social video editing app called Clips that attempts to take shots at similar apps like Snapchat and Instagram. Clips allows its users to take short video clips (hence the pun) and edit them before sharing them publicly to various social media platforms (like Instagram, Facebook, YouTube & Vimeo). Clips has tons of built-in filters, masks, animated text and more.
Users can easily put a clip together with a soundtrack that fits the length of the Clips track. You can choose from one of the Apple pre-selected tracks (that perfectly go with the clips length) or you can choose from a track in your Apple Music list. Because Apple Clips will use your Apple iOS Photos library, Apple can easily detect known faces in your videos and suggest them in the shared section when you finish your clips.
Clips by Apple is free to download from the iTunes App Store. But you will need to at least have iOS 10.3 or an iPhone 5s, iPad Air, iPad Mini 2, or sixth-generation iPod touch in order to use the app. I expect this to be an iOS exclusive app, but currently no word on whether an Android version is coming.
