Magisto magically creates video in a few easy steps – App of the Week

Magisto magically creates video in just a few clicks of a button from your unedited videos and photos. Magisto is both a web tool and app (both Android & iOS) that can be used to create creative content on the fly utilizing various videos and photos without the pain of spending hours editing and splicing it all together.

Utilizing an artificial intelligence this cloud based software can splice together both short videos and photos into a unique video with custom themes and music. The updated algorithm uses artificial intelligence to analyze what’s going on in your video and make edits in the right place. Magisto understands what’s going in the video, picks the best parts of your video, and then edits them together to create the perfect completed project.

Currently Magisto has three plans available:


  • Cost: FREE
