Vidify ($1.99) is an iPhone app that allows users to quickly and easily edit video on their handset. The application automatically edits selected videos, merging them together and adding a preselected backing track, eventually producing a fully-edited movie in a matter of seconds. Vidify is impressive, and much easier than using a more complex video-editing iPhone app like iMovie. As outlined in the app's release notes:
Vidify automatically edits music videos and montage videos on the fly using the footage from your camera roll and a soundtrack from your iPod library. No editing required. Simply select multiple videos and your song and Vidify does the rest. Vidify is an incredibly simple, fun and fast way of creating videos.Highlights of the application include:
