The 8 Best Video Editing Apps for Instagram Reels in 2022

Do you want to start working with Instagram reels videos, but don’t know where to start? There are tons of video editing apps out there that can help you create Instagram reels like a pro. By using video editing you can turn your short videos into aesthetic Instagram reels with just a few taps. In this article, I list my favorites; the 8 best video editing apps for Instagram reels.

1. InShot

My personal opinion is that InShot is the best app for creating Instagram reels. InShot lets you crop, trim, cut, add filters, change speed, merge clips, create collages and much more.

Price: There’s a free version, but with the paid version you won’t have to deal with the watermark or ads. The price is $3.99 per month; $14.99 per year; or a one-time charge of $34.99 for lifetime access.

Key features:

  • Best video editor for cutting, trimming and cropping.
