In 2017, we decided to build Kapwing in the browser. Video and image editors had traditionally been downloadable apps, and we decided to go the online route so we could make content creation as accessible as possible. That decision has empowered millions of creators to tell their stories because anyone can use Kapwing from anywhere in the world, on any device, just by navigating to our website – no downloads necessary. Yet we also understand that having a dedicated app can make life easier for creators. So we thought: why not have both?
Our official app provides a direct pipeline to your content and Kapwing. In one click, you can now start creating content, find free assets, collaborate with teammates, and discover templates. Editing on the go becomes simpler, whether you're combining clips for a Tiktok, adding subtitles to an IG reel, or making a GIF to send to a friend.
With the app, you also have a unique streamlined experience that makes editing on smaller screens easier. The updated mobile interface gives you more space to make edits on the screen and we added a toolbar at the bottom so you can efficiently craft your story. Plus, the app helps you access projects across different devices quicker so you can make content on a computer and then download it on your phone and vice versa.
You can find our app in the Google Play store here and make sure to leave a review so we know what you like and what to improve! We hope to launch an iOS app sometime in the future so stay tuned – subscribe to our YouTube channel and Twitter to stay up-to-date with our latest features and announcements.
