Artisto is an editing app, particularly for videos, wherein Android users can apply certain features and filters to their videos to create one-of-kind films. This app is great because it gives users the ability to make these changes directly from their mobile devices.

The best feature offered by the Artisto app is the wide variety of filters it offers users who would like to change the overall appearance of their videos. You have the option to choose of many different choices, each of which can give the video a different feel as well as a new look.

Recording videos within the Artisto app is very easy, but you should remember that no video be any longer than ten seconds. After you have recorded your video, you will be able to select the filter you would like to apply to it from the options presented to you within the app. You may want to try some of the particularly interesting options, such as the filter that gives your video the look of a mosaic or the filter that will turn your video into an expressionist painting.

No matter which choice you make, you are sure to want to share your finished video with people on your social media pages. You may also just save it directly to your device if you so wish.

Some might feel that the interface is not intuitive or high-tech enough for their tastes. That may be true, but that is not enough of a reason to avoid using this app. Ultimately, Artisto is a good option for anyone who needs a reliable video-editing app.


  • Offers several artistic filter options.
