    Youtube (Android/iOS)

    The Youtube app is leading the way and clearly doesn't need huge introductions. This is the official Google app that allows you to view videos on the famous video sharing platform. By connecting the application to your Google account and the corresponding Youtube channel, you can use the app to make videos on your smartphone, to be shared on your channel.

    To make a video on Youtube, directly through the Youtube app, just press the camera button, located next to the magnifying glass button.



    Then allow access to the photos, camera and microphone; this way you can record videos directly from the app. If you press the button Register, the app will allow you to record a video on the spot, which you can then possibly edit before sharing.

    By selecting a movie that is already in your device's library, you can make some basic changes. The tools offered by the YouTube video editing app are basic and essential: cropping, adding effects or filters and adding a soundtrack, nothing more. The app is therefore useful if you want to create and share a video on Youtube in a short time, without making major changes. Before uploading to Youtube, you can also only set the title and description; through the app there is no possibility to set tags for videos.

    If you have a Youtube channel and you often make videos, I also recommend that you download the complementary application for smartphones Youtube Creator Studio, useful for managing your Youtube channel on mobile devices, through the analysis and monitoring of the progress of the uploaded videos.

    The Youtube Creator Studio application is also available for free for Android and iOS devices.
