WeVideo Launches Android Video-Editing App

WeVideo launched a video-editing app for Android today, promising “an iMovie-like” editing experience for the mobile platform.

Twitter’s Vine sits in the top free spot in the App Store, but the Android market for video-creation apps is still up for grabs.

“Unlike iOS, we think the Android platform has, until now, lacked a decent video editing app. WeVideo believes the Android market is ready and waiting and we are thrilled to offer our powerful editing tools to the Android community,” said WeVideo CEO and co-founder, Jostein Svendsen.

The app allows users to capture video on a video camera or smartphone and to edit footage on any connected device. Final videos can be shared on YouTube, Vimeo, or directly through WeVideo. Users can receive automatic notifications through Twitter or Facebook.

The app works on devices running Jelly Bean or more recent versions of the Android operating system. It will compete with apps including Magisto, VidTrim and HighlightCam Social.
