At the end of a successful weekend, my camera roll is full of videos. Videos of friends eating pancakes, videos of dogs waiting outside cafes, videos of vintage finds I can't afford, etc., etc. But those cherished little moments never see the light of day—because what am I going to do, spam my friend's feeds with a million short films? Thankfully (for them) I no longer have to answer that question, because Apple has just opened up a whole new world of video editing with their new app, Clips.

Clips lets you take photos and record video and then combine them with music to create a customized movie in minutes. You can pull tracks from your own iTunes, or choose from a library of ready-to-use songs created by Apple—including a score by legendary composer Hans Zimmer (of The Dark Knight fame). Layer comic book-inspired filters, animated posters, your favorite emojis, and speech bubbles to your film, then share them directly from the app to whichever platform you like best.
