Easy and fun movie making with Magisto #MagistoMoms

My electronics are a huge part of my day-to-day life, as well as when I travel. I take a lot of pictures and videos. When I say a lot… I mean a LOT. I can’t even begin to think of the number of pictures and videos that I take of my kids on a daily basis. Technology is truly amazing, isn’t it?

I have an Android phone and an iPad that are usually hand in hand with me so I can capture those precious moments and send them to loved ones. I had a fun opportunity to check out an app on both of my devices that has taught me that sharing videos can be quick, easy and fun called Magisto.

What is Magisto?

Driven by artificial intelligence and simple user experience, Magisto is an ecosystem for creating and sharing professional quality personal movies.  It automatically selects the most compelling moments and, like an expert video editor, weaves them together to convey a story with customized styles and music. Magisto can be used across iOS, Android and the Web, and is the highest-rated video creation app in Google Play and iOS App stores.

I loved playing around with this app! It was so easy to use.
Go to your app store and search for magisto. Download it and it’s literally ready to use.


You can shoot a video straight from the app or you can search through your device’s gallery and use one that you’ve already taken. Select what you want and go from there.


Once you pick the videos and/or images that you’d like, you can choose an editing style, or theme. There are several that are pre-loaded and more that can be downloaded.

I told you this app was easy, didn’t I? Here’s where it really gets awesome. Once you pick your videos, it will line up, you choose your music that you want and it builds your movie from there. As my 5 year old says …. Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezy.


While your movie is being built, you can create another movie, or you can sit and wait… which isn’t that long.

Within seconds, my movie was built.


Here is is!

I cannot begin to tell you how much I love this app! It’s the easiest to use, so much fun and quick to use. I’ve tried movie creating apps in the past, but they were too complicated, not very much fun and took up too much memory on my iPad or Android phone. Magisto is literally the only video creating app that I use on all my devices. It’s so easy that my 5 and almost 8 year old can use this app to create some of their own fun movies.

You can get Magisto on Android and iPhone.
