App of The Month: Quik

Formally called Replay, you can create awesome videos with just a few taps. Choose your favorite photos and video clips then let Quik work its magic. In seconds, it finds great moments, adds beautiful transitions and effects, and syncs everything to the beat of the music. You can customize your story with text, music and more then easily share it with friends. Editing has never been this fast—or this fun.


Check out an example below! This video was done in less than 10 minutes!
