Top 5 Video Apps for a Real Estate Agent

Videolicious is a popular app for making quick videos on the fly. I like the visual layout of the app as well as how user friendly it is for anyone. The three step process allows you to taking still photos and video clips from your Ipad/Droid/Iphone camera roll and upload them. Step Two is the part where you tell your story where you can do a quick video clip of yourself to promote yourself or youc company. Step Three allows you to choose your Music either from Theme Music preloaded in the app or from your iTunes albums. Be careful of copyright issues though.

Montaj is a cool video editing app for the Iphone that allows you to shoot clips, shake of your wrist to edit and then share with the world. The cool thing about this app is you can see your friends videos through their social network sharing. Don’t forget every time you create a MONTAJ video, share it to your Facebook and Twitter feeds and use the #MONTAJ hashtag (as well as @montajapp).

The next video editing app is beyond awesome…Splice…. gives you control over assembling video clips, music, photos, visual effects, text, audio mixing with synchronization of sound and voice-over. Wow with all of these features it sounds like it would be hard to use, but this app is simplistic in its editing.

The Magisto is an automatic video editing app that you just upload your video clips, select your theme, pick your music and then it transforms them into beautifully edited finished movies.

ReelDirector is very similar to Splice which allows you to edit a soundtrack, fade music, overlay text, pan and zoom, as well as trim clips. I like the number of choices for transitions as well. Good app but you not instinctive if you have never worked on a video app before.
