Did you actually think we still need advanced software like Adobe Premiere Pro or Final Cut Pro to make gnarly video edits? How wrong you were my friend. If the fact that a calculator, telephone and MP3 player fitting into the palm of your hand still blows your mind, this knowledge is going to knock your cranium into orbit. You see we’ve come a long way since then, and smartphones along with accompanying app software are growing exponentially. The sheer capability of what our devices can do is astonishing, yet it’s nothing in comparison to what we’ll witness even ten years from now. No matter, the software at hand is one of importance. After all, it concerns one of our favorite forms of media. One that we can all comprehend and enjoy, with the ability to turn the most boring of scientific quantum principles into digestible visual appetizers for our eyes, ears and fragile little minds – video.

We now live in a world where semi-advanced video manipulation can be performed in the palm of our hands, from our mobile devices. There is an abundance of apps out there that promise everything from making simple cuts and splices to making you the next viral sensation. The app we are talking about today, however, is KineMaster for Android that makes some big claims among its competitors. Read on to discover how this app can benefit you and how you can download KineMaster – pro video editor for Android today, without spending a dime.

What is KineMaster you ask?

KineMaster claims to be the only full-featured professional video editor for Android, supporting multiple layers of video, images, and text, as well as precise cutting and trimming, multi-track audio, precise volume envelope control, color LUT filters, 3D transitions, and much, much more (I told you they made some big claims).

For professionals and amateurs alike, KineMaster offers a level of control never seen before in the mobile editing process, and for artists and educators, handwriting layers allow you to draw directly on the video (which also handy for storyboarding). KineMaster claims their users range from YouTube stars to short film producers to mobile journalists. Professionals from all across the globe in multiple industries are using the app to create quick edits on the go – and for good reason. Let’s look at some of the key features of KineMaster that makes it so irresistible.

Is it free?

This is the million dollar question. KineMaster is a subscription service, so this is worth mentioning. But you can use it in trial mode without a subscription. In the rial mode, KineMaster is free for unlimited personal, non-commercial use, but has a “Made with KineMaster” watermark on all videos, so you’ll need to weigh up whether you can live with that kind of branding on your content or not.

Both monthly and annual subscriptions are available for purchase within the app. In addition to the removal of the watermark, subscribers benefit from access to premium downloadable assets from the KineMaster asset store, including visual effects, overlays, professional high-quality royalty-free music, and more, with new assets added regularly. A subscription automatically renews every month or every year, if you chose the discounted annual subscription option. You can cancel your subscription in the Play Store at any time.

Permissions

Every app comes with its own set of permissions right? KineMaster is no different, but it certainly won’t ask for access to your browsing history or any other confidential user data. All it needs is access to your phone’s camera and microphone if you want to record videos or sound directly in the app. KineMaster also requires access to your phone’s storage in order to save projects you are working on (projects are saved externally in a folder called “KineMaster” so don’t lose all your work if you reinstall the app or clear the app data).

To note: KineMaster can be used on most devices running Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean MR2) and above, but you will have the best editing experience using a device with powerful video decoding capabilities on the SoC.

How do I get my hands on this beast?

We thought you would never ask. To download this whopper of an app, just hit that big green ‘Download’ button at the top of this review to get the ball rolling. Once you have downloaded and installed the software, the best way to get to know what you are dealing with is hands on. Open the app, play around the features and figure it out as you go.
