In conclusion: what to look for in text-adding software for your videos
Hopefully, this article has helped you identify what to look for in an app to add text to your videos. To sum everything up, let’s talk about a few of the most important things to look for when choosing the best text-adding app:
- Ease of use: How easily can you do what you need to do with the app you’re considering? Some apps have a lot of features and tools, but they can be difficult to learn. Others are easy to use but don’t do everything you need. Look for an app that has all the features you need without making your editing job a nightmare.
- Features and tools: It doesn’t matter how easy a video editing app is to use if it doesn’t do what you need. Do you need an app with no watermark? Are you looking for something that you can use online, or do you need to use it when you’re not connected to the internet?
- File formats: Again, make sure that the app you choose supports your preferred video file formats. If you need to work with a MOV file but the software only supports MP4, it’ll be useless when you need to get your videos ready to share.
- Reviews and ratings: What are other users saying about the app? Does it glitch or lag when processing videos? Does it have any known flaws that everyone’s talking about?
- Technical support: Does the app creator provide customer support and assistance with technical difficulties? If you’re not a tech wizard and you have problems with the app, you might want to make sure that you can turn to a solid customer support team before you commit.
