If You Need More than a Simple App

Before we start, we do also want to recommend the best desktop software for creating video collages. Movavi Video Editor Plus is a full-featured filmmaking application that will help you create cool movies. It’s super easy to use, so you can have a video collage up on your social media in no time. And we guarantee it will look more interesting and different than anything created in a mobile app. Most mobile applications don’t have enough tools to create truly outstanding video content. You won’t have access to many special effects, and the transitions tend to be quite limited. So if you want to make something special and avoid boring templates, try Movavi Video Editor Plus!

The Best Beginner Apps for Video Collages 

1. Video Collage – if you want to create a collage in three clicks

Available on: iPhones, Android phones

Pricing: free

Key features: This is a standard app to make video collages with templates for up to 5 videos. The great thing about the Video Collage application is that it’s very easy to use and perfect for anyone who doesn’t want to spend a lot of time editing videos. 

Here’s what you can do with this app: choose a template (either vertical or horizontal), add videos and photos, mute sound, add music, and set the color and width of the frames. That’s it: your collage is ready for posting!

Note that you won’t find many features to get really creative: the tools are fairly limited. There are only 45 templates. But while it might be frustrating for more experienced content creators, for others it will be just enough. So if you want a simple tool that will get things done and won’t overwhelm you with a ton of features you’ll never use, Video Collage is a great choice for you.

pros:

cons: 

➖ not many tools

2. Photo & Video Collage Maker – if you don’t mind the ads

Available on: iPhones

Pricing: free + in-app purchases

Key features: This is another collage maker with just a basic set of tools. It has over 50 free-to-use templates and allows you to use both photos and videos in a single collage. It doesn’t have any editing capabilities – all you can do is crop your video. There is a built-in audio library, but it’s accessible only to those who pay for the Pro version of the app. Ah, and about that, there’s A LOT of ads in the application. 

Other than that, it’s a simple intuitive app that will help you create a simple collage for your Instagram post or Stories.

Key features: Vidstitch is one of the simpler apps for video collages. It offers over 50 free templates to combine videos and photos into one clip. You can choose the color and width of the frames and make a couple of other adjustments. One significant advantage of this program is that, unlike the others, it enables you to record a new video for your collage right within the app. Beyond that, there are not many editing and customizing features in this application.

The Best Professional Video Collage Makers    

7. Canva – if you’re a blogger or digital marketer

Available on: iPhones, Android phones

Pricing: free + in-app purchases

Key features: As an app created originally for professional designers, Canva takes users to another level of content creation. Here you can create a collage from scratch or use one of the templates created by professional designers – there are more than 60,000 of them! All the templates are categorized, so you can easily find what you need, whether you’re creating an Instagram Story or an animated post cover for Facebook.   

In the collages, you can combine videos and photos, add animation and titles in different styles, and choose the colors of the frames. There’s a built-in stock media library with pictures, music, and video, as well as hundreds of stickers and GIFs. In addition to collages, you can create logos, wallpaper, mood boards, and even menus. 

Because there are so many tools, Canva might seem a bit overwhelming for beginners. Also, many of its features are hidden unless you get the paid version.

pros: 

➕ 60,000 (!!!) templates

➕ lots of stickers and animations

➕ built-in stock media

cons: 

➖ may be too complex for beginners

 

8. Mojo – if you want to have it all

Available on: iPhones, Android phones

It has tons of animated templates that you can use for making photo and video collages. There are hundreds of tools to make your content unique: built-in music, videos, pictures, stickers, GIFs, and titles. Some are blocked until you pay, but even the free version has enough features to satisfy most users.

The great thing about Mojo is that it’s very intuitive and straightforward. Despite the fact that it’s intended as a professional tool for digital marketers and bloggers, it can really be used by anyone. 

pros:

➕ lots of templates and built-in stock media 

➕ on-point designs 

cons: 

➖ more than half the templates are only in the paid version

       

9. Diptic – if you want to stand out

Available on: iPhones

Pricing: $2,99

Key features: Diptic is also a good app for creative users. Not only do you get lots of unique layouts, but you can also customize them in many different ways. Using Diptic, you can combine up to 9 photos and videos in one collage. Like in other professional apps, there are built-in simple photo and video editors, as well as a free media library.

pros: 

➕ fully customizable templates

➕ easy-to-use

cons

10. KineMaster – if you want a video editor with a collage-making feature

Available on: iPhones, Android phones

Pricing:$22.99 per year for the Premium version

Key features: KineMaster looks like a full-featured video editor in miniature. It doesn’t have any templates or built-in stickers but, using the Layers feature, you can create your custom video collage. Users who are familiar with film editing on a PC will be able to navigate through this app very quickly – the interface and all the buttons look exactly like a typical video editing app. It’s even oriented horizontally! But if you’ve never used a video editing app before, you may find it difficult to get used to KineMaster.

The Layers feature is not very easy to use but, at the same time, it gives you more freedom to create exactly what you have in mind. Here you can add as many videos to your collage as you want and combine them however you like. Also, the app enables you to add a voiceover to your clip or use any music saved on your device.

pros: 

➕ lets you get fully creative

➕ offers much more than just a collage-making tool 

cons: 

➖ may seem too complex for beginners

➖ because the app is oriented horizontally, it’s awkward to edit vertical videos

 

11. Adobe Premiere Rush – if you’re an Adobe fan

Available on: iPhones, Android phones

Pricing: $4.99 per month for the Premium version

Key features: This is another mobile professional editing application from Adobe that will let you make collages using the Layers feature. Like KineMaster, it doesn’t have any ready-to-use templates – you have to create your collage from scratch. And while it gives you a lot of space for creativity, it will take longer to finish one clip.

pros: 

➕ lets you get fully creative

➕ connects with Adobe Cloud

cons: 

may seem too complex for beginners

 

Try any of these apps and you’ll see that making video collages is really fun and easy – and the outcome is totally worth it! Get creative, post cool engaging content, and broaden your audience. Good luck 😉
