If you are looking for the most popular apps for your iPhone or Android smartphone, it is not always easy to keep an overview of the mass of applications available today. Here are top iOS apps from the App Store you should look for for the remaining half of 2020.
You have an iPhone and venture into the scuffle of Apple’s App Store, which offers well over a million apps. Great news! Many of them are free. Not so good news! You have to sieve them to get the best out of them. Fortunately, we are there for that by listing them here.
Top iOS apps from the App Store you should look for for the remaining half of 2020.
Clips is a video editing application designed to create content for social media sharing. It renounces conventions (widescreen, standard titles, typical editing traces) and tries to bring much fun into a fast, uncomplicated editing process.
You can record straightaway in the app or even import existing videos. You can overlay stickers and live subtitles which appear when the topic speaks and apply filters for a different look. Posters serve as a substitute for titles and help with the pace and context in a much more interesting, animated, and editable way.
There is an additional treat for iPhone X users: animated 3D selfie scenes. You can put them in several stylized landscapes, including neon-colored cityscapes and ships from Star Wars. The effect is so fascinating that it is worth using the app for selfie scenes alone.
With Enlight Pixaloop, you can animate your photos. This is accomplished by manually drawing “path arrows” to set the direction of the animation and setting anchors to anchor other areas of your image in place. Tap the play button, and you will get something like a movie paragraph – just based on a single still image and not dozens of recordings or videos.
Whatever you create can be exported as video to photos (unfortunately, there is no animated GIF option). Still, there is a lot more than you can add first, including camera shake, overlay effects, and automated moving sky. Some of these features work better compared to others, but the whole package is a great way to bring your photos to life. Note that there is an IAP subscription, though you don’t have to pay to get a lot out of this app.
NetNewsWire is an RSS reader. This technology has gone out of style, but we’re not sure why. It allows you to subscribe to websites you love and forward every headline directly to an app. You can then read each article from your feed or jump to the original article in a browser.
So the technology is practical, and this app is a great way to use it. If you only want to run RSS on your iPhone, you can subscribe to feeds directly in the app. If you like synchronization, NetNewsWire supports the Feedbin and Feedly services.
RSS readership owners may be longing for visual customization features that NetNewsWire lacks. The factual, system-oriented design of this app and the inclusion of vital functions, such as complete loading content from synopsis-based feeds are pretty impressive.
Moodelizer is a one-trick pony. It allows you to add custom soundtracks to videos – and all you need is a single finger.
You select a genre and “rehearse” playback by dragging your finger around the square viewfinder. Move your finger up to increase the intensity of the music and move it to the right to adjust the variation. You can test with the viewer or with an existing video loaded from your camera roll.
Playing around with the sound alone is fun, but when it comes to creating a video, everything comes together correctly. If you now turn another clip of your cat that is slightly amusing, Moodelizer can provide the necessary excitement with rousing club music or head-banging guitar riffs.
If you like the concept of editing home videos, but you are a modern being with no time or attention spans, try Quik. The app automates the entire process and allows you to create beautiful videos with just a few taps and show them to your friends without the need for talent – surely the epitome of today’s #hashtag generation.
All you have to do is select some videos and photos and choose a style. Quik then edits it into a great looking video that you can share with friends and family. However, if your inner filmmaker craves a little more control, you can adjust style, music, format, and tempo, crop clips, rearrange elements, and add titles to achieve the desired effect.
To underline its friendly nature, Quik offers a little mini-game for couples to play with while the app plays your masterpiece. And there’s even a weekly “For You” video that Quik puts together without you having to lift a finger.
Plays claim it can “increase your self-expression” and “make your content beautiful.” It’s a free iPhone app allowing you type in a tiny letter (140 characters or less, like old school Twitter) and then hurl the letters across the place.
This is not a freeform animation – you don’t need to know anything about keyframes and paths. Instead, choose a font, and animation style, a background pattern (which also animates), and an image that sits under everything. As a default option there is an Instagram-friendly square composition, but with one button, you can scroll through several alternatives.
Quite a few of the animation styles lead to questionable legibility. However, if you work with some of the more subtle options – and the pretty lovely backgrounds – you end up with a visually stunning video that you can showcase online.
Vue is a video editor whose original incarnation was a strange mix of intriguing and ridiculous. In short, it was built to give you six seconds of fame by shooting an ultra-short video with three shots.
Fortunately, Vue is a little more relaxed now – and so much the better for him. The app still prefers to be short, but allows films of up to three minutes in length and can also load existing videos from your iPhone. Once your miniature masterpiece is ready, it’s possible to add filters and stickers, overlay subtitles, and play around with zoom and adjustment sliders.
According to Statista, in the last reported year, customers spent an estimated 54.2 billion U.S. dollars on in-app purchases, subscriptions, and premium apps in the Apple App Store. It is not too late to contact a Swift app development company or a Swift developer to launch your app. Apple’s App Store sees the most number of premium downloads compared to Google’s Play Store.
