Avid Releases Video Editing App for iPad


Avid has released their video editing app for iPad. The application is no doubt going to take on Apple’s iMovie for iPad. It sounds pretty full-featured for a tablet app, but will definitely lack some of what makes the desktop app what it is.

Still, it’s seen as more of a companion to the desktop version, according to Avid. It’s worth a try if you’re a video editor. It’s currently priced at $4.99, and will go up to $7.99 after 30 days. That means if you’re interested in the software, it may be best to pick it up sooner than later.

Here’s the App Store description:
