Sometimes, the camera on the iPhone isn’t quite enough. I mean, it’s not that I want a 1080p HD video all the time. Sometimes, a little change is necessary: change like adding effects to a video, creating a collage out of videos stitched together, having real-time video effects, becoming a pro in editing videos etc.

If you’re one of those guys/gals who’d love to play around with video apps for the fun of it, there are thousands of amazing video apps on the App Store. Not every one of them is going to be interesting but we made sure we’ll track those that were interesting to us. Here’s that list:

6 Best iPhone Video Apps for Recording, Editing, and Sharing Videos

1. Precorder
Precorder iPhone AppIf you’ve been consistently missing that “special moment” when trying to capture it on video, then you definitely need this app. There are plenty of pre-recorders on the App Store, but this one probably takes the cake for being one of the simplest and easiest to use. The free version gives you about 5-seconds of a headstart while this one linked here gives you 10 seconds of the same.

Precorder is a must have if you’ve got pets or kids in your house. Special moments last for about a second and if you really want them captured, get Precorder right away!

Price: $1.99

 2. iMajiCam Video Effects
iMajiCam iPhone AppThis one applies real-time effects to the video you capture. And that’s not something whose import you get by reading stuff here. When you use iMajiCam, you realize that there’s a ton of difference between adding effects to the video after it has been captured and capturing a video with realtime effects. The app also features some mandatory features found on the Camera app besides adding its own specialties to the overall experience. It’s a complete app for capturing HD photos and videos.

3. Videolicious
Videolicious iPhone AppVideolicious offers simple and easy way to create a storyboard with your photos and videos. Think of it as a stripped down version of iMovie – stripped down to a point where all you can do is create beautiful videos with narration. Oh yeah, there are filters too that lend a cinematic finish to your work.

4.  iMovie
iMovie iPhone AppFor those interested in taking their creativity to the next level, iMovie (straight from Apple) comes as the best app to get started with your ideas of making the next box-office hit. The app is feature-rich to an extent where you might feel uncomfortable if you’re just starting out. But it’s one of the finest, full-fledged video recording and editing apps on the iOS ecosystem.

Price: $4.99
Download iMovie

5.  TiltShift Video
TiltShift Video iPhone AppEver since I first stumbled on these, I’ve been a fan of TiltShift photos and videos. Obviously, I’ve seen tons of tutorials that show you how you can achieve TiltShift through Photoshop but nothing beats TiltShift videos. They’re strangely attractive and if you’re looking for tutorials, don’t waste your time. Spend your dollar on TiltShift video and you’re done! The finest app you can ever get your hands on for those TiltShift videos.

6. 8mm Vintage Camera
8mm Vintage Camera iPhone AppThe 8mm vintage camera app is a little overpriced for the features and the usage but if you’re looking for a hassle-free and perfect vintage look in your videos, you can very well throw a dollar or two and get this app. The part about being the most authentic vintage camera for the iPhone (optimized for iPhone 5 too) is somewhat true to a large extent.

Price: $1.99
