Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

openshot reviews

This app is very easy to use and free too! I downloaded it and watched a tutorial, a few minutes later I was ready to edit my first video. I do not have a degree in video editing but the products from my Openshot edits were of high quality.

OpenShot is a compact video editing software for macOS, Windows, and Linux. The application is open and has a large community of users which makes it easy to get started and get help. OpenShot allows you to export the final product to your desired file format. I use OpenShot to edit video tutorials and user manuals

OpenShott video editor is an easy-to-use video editing tool. The control panel is so simple that any newbie can have hands-on over it very easily. Also, the feature of drag and drop easily really handy and improves productivity.

imovie reviews

The nicest aspect of iMovie is that it is highly user-friendly and simple to use for a novice. I use it for fairly basic editing jobs, and the user interface has always been easy and straightforward

It's easy and fast for editing videos. It's a native app that runs very well on a Mac. It has all the basic options that you can need for editing videos, and... it's FREE.

I like that I can make a more engaging video of my content to share instead of just photos

Pros & cons


Openshot is really awesome and a professional video editing software
The most important thing that it is completely free
Great use, highly recommend to someone who is not confident with advanced, expensive software
OpenShot Video Editor is a great tool to make a perfect video
It's free, and if I was starting from scratch and using this and learning along the way, I would probably love it ..
because I wouldn't know any better."

Before finding this software I faced many problems using different video editing software
That software was more complicated and difficult to use
So far I don't have much problem during using of this software, But I think it is some difficulties I felt during the making of subtitles
It was a little bit of getting more time
It kept crashing on me with out warning
Kept crashing on me a lot of times
It's very frustrating to use when you're used to using a platform that is easy to learn and relatively intuitive
For instance, while you can see how far into a video you are (e.g., 01:06:25)."


I like the ease of the timeline for putting together audio and video and I like that the overall environment can support a lot of photos and videos and audio at once
Finally I think it is great that you can share your content very easily with good quality on social media
Overall iMovie is a wonderful tool to help empower students when sharing their learning
REally love it, you can also use it on your phone
I recommend it for basic purposes, if you need a little more in that case I would switch to something more advanced like Premier."

An average Yeutter user is frustrated and usually either stops using the application or doesn't use it to its forced capabilities
To the point I have to exit out the software and I have to start over on making the trailers I create for my books
I also hate the fact that it does not have very many choices to edit
In the beginning, it is difficult to understand, you have to navigate and spend time to identify its characteristics
Also, the editing features are limited
I got frustrated pretty quickly because of the lack of aspect ratio customization - and had to re-do my project in windows' solution, on another computer."
