Check out this video I made that shows how a reporter can use the DoubleTake app in the field.
Some professional-level apps like LumaFusion are only available on the iOS platform. VN video editor works well on both Android and iOS, so I keep it on my phone for teaching purposes. VN also can do some special effects that are exclusive, so it is pretty handy.
I teach you how to use this apps in my six-week Mobile Journalism Masterclass. This course is only offer a few times per year in partnership with Journalism Co UK.
