Fly Video Editor

Take your travel and vacation videos to the next level with this app and a few smart edits.

Name: Fly Video Editor.

What it does: It's a video editor that allows you to combine four videos into one. Trim, dissolve, or cut to the next video, add music, and save the final product to your camera for sharing.

Available: Requires iOS 8 and works best with iPhone 5 and above.

Cost: The app is free, but additional feature packs are $2.99 to $9.99 each, or a bundle for $5.99.

What's hot: This app makes editing easy. I've tried a few different video-editing apps and computer software, and they can sometimes be complicated and intimidating for a beginner. But you don't need an engineering degree to use Fly. I loved that you could import music from your iTunes library. It even adjusts vertical videos so you can use them with your horizontal ones.

What's not: I don't always shoot just video. Taking photos comes more naturally to me, and I wanted to include some family travel photos in my video. Hold tight. Adding photos is a new feature that will launch this summer.
