We're turning to our mobiles more and more these days for recording and editing videos to later share with our friends and family. You're never going to get as professional a result as with a camcorder, everyone knows that. But with the evolution of our mobile phone cameras, mobile videos are getting better and better.
The following are some of our favorite apps for recording and editing videos with your Android device. Some are more serious and complete, while others offer more light-hearted features for a bit of fun.
VideoShow Video Editor is a complete and easy to use application that works as a video recorder, editor, and social network. It boats all the tools you need to create an entertaining video, with added images and text if you so wish.
