    iMovie is part of Apple's iLife suite, which also includes Garageband and iPhoto. With iMovie you can take clips from your Camera Roll, add music, transitions, overlays, and much more. You can also split clips and order them any way you'd like. By default Apple offers many different templates for both movies and trailers, or you can start with a blank canvas and create your own. iMovie also includes auto-stabilization support to help you level out those shaky videos. When it comes time to share your videos, you can upload them to iCloud and share a link or you can share them directly with email, Facebook, Twitter, AirDrop, and more.

    While iMovie is incredibly easy to use, it also packs a pretty powerful punch when it comes to feature set. Want to add overlays or transition into different scenes? iMovie makes it easy. You can also view beautiful outlines and story boards as you create so it's easy to pick out moments, add more, and rearrange so the end product is exactly as you'd like it to be.

    iMovie is free for all iOS devices and Macs that were purchased after September 1, 2013. Older devices that are capable of running iMovie for iOS or Mac can still purchase them.
