    or to be more precise I'm looking for an app that will allow me to merge a number of video clips into 1....oh for free obviously :)

    I'd you have a Samsung phone, Samsung has a video editor.

    If your OEM doesn't have one, then best bet is to look at the highest rated editors in the Play Store.

    I've tried a couple and they fail to deliver.I was hoping someone could recommend one.I just want to be able to join a few clips together and save them as one file.

    It might be easier if I just import the files to my pc and use movie maker or something similar

    If you just want to joint a few clips together, then you're not looking for the video editor, that is for video editing. You need the movie editor. CYANOGEN ROM comes with a decent movie editor, it's just called the movie editor. There are a few in the play store, just do a search for movie editor. Most of them are called movie editor. There is a decent one by goseet call, you guess it, movie editor. It costs $2.99, and there are bunch free ones, so go check them out at the play store.

    In the end I just imported the clips to windows movie maker and did it that way.

    Yes it's usually what I do. The state of media editors on Android, especially video, is pretty bad but that may change if Google develops a better API surface for that.

    The platform can really use something as good as iMovie on iOS.

    I've always thought video editors on Android to be lacking in the past. there's a few available now, and there's Movie Studio which comes with AOSP, but these are only quite recent. My old Symbian Nokia N95 from 2007 had a reasonable video editor, enough to put clips together, cut and trim, add effects and titles, etc, and that was pre-Android. I replaced it with a flagship Samsung Galaxy S in mid-2010, and there was basically nothing. If I wanted to put some clips together, I had to use my PC with MS Movie Maker or Mac with iMovie or whatever.

    iOS hasn't always had video editing and iMovie, the first iPhone couldn't even shoot video, while most Symbian Nokias could.

    Who cares if they always had it, it's 2014 now and they do have it - along with bigger screens to take better advantage of it as well. They've had iMovie since at least the iPhone 4S, which does shoot video, and its a great mobile video editor. They sure leapfrog get the competition in record time, and didn't falter... Impressive?

    Nothing on Android (or any other mobile platform, at that) currently compares favorably with it. There's also nothing as good as GarageBand on this platform.

    3rd parties really can't replicate them as well because there are APIs in iOS with no equivalents in Android at the moment, and their multimedia subsystems are superior.

    Better media editors are needed, and I hope Android L makes that possible.

    It's not just about trimming and adding effects. Adjusting Slow Motion, Zooming in within the video, more sophisticated audio tools in the editor, synching properly with a desktop app.

    It really peeves me that Adobe is developing one but of course it's iOS only for the moment...

    Think GarageBand is something specific and rather vertical. I've got it on my old Snow Leopard MacBook. But never use it though, mainly because I don't know anything about music. And probably most other people I know are the same, except for one friend who's a recording engineer.

    My own video editing needs are actually quite modest, usually adding Chinese captions to short clips of Fawlty Towers and the like. And I've used iMovie for that.

    But if you do need things like music production on the go, then no choice really, it's iOS.

    If you want to make your own highlight reels or Video Montages on your phone or tablet with your own music cuts then you need the better audio tools in iMovie or GarageBand. Those are consumer tools not meant for professionals so it's not about needing Premier or Audition on a phone 😂

    It's kind of useless to throw out a bunch of elements in a Montage without the ability to slow them down when they're complicated and happen in 0.6 seconds each (skateboarding, surfing, gymnastics, figure skating, ski aerials, etc.) And the music in apps like Zoe and the Samsung Gallery is terrible 😮

    Shouldn't have to switch platforms for that. No one needs to switch from Windows to Mac just to have decent Audio or Video Editing options.
