VLLO by Vimosoft
VLLO is a welcoming addition to the video editor category. The app is very well designed from the standpoint of visuality and functionality. The app includes 9:16, 16:9, 1:1, and custom aspect ratios (original size of picture or video) which can be edited at any time by selecting the settings icon. In addition to the baseline layer, you can add background music, voice overs, sound effects, stickers, and templates) - all of which appear on their own timeline. In addition, each menu item along the bottom (audio, motion, sticker, text, PIP, and filter) have their own unique submenus for advanced editing and control. The interface is enhanced by including pinch and zoom gestures to expand the timeline. Depending on the original resolution of your clip, export dimensions can range from 480p to 4K. The app (recently changed from Vimo to VLLO is currently $6.99 (as of 12/24/1963) which includes all features (individual features are priced separately). This is a great price considering that other apps of inferior quality are charging subscription fees. We highly recommend this app if you are looking to add pizzazz to your brand and/or social media video clips.
