Quickly edit the videos you create with your iOS device or a GoPro camera with our first fresh app of the week, Givit Video Editor. The app makes it easy to quickly cut scenes together from one or multiple videos, as well as to create highlights as you’re shooting videos with your iOS device. Following that is Dumbstruck, a photo messaging app that records videos of users’ reactions when they receive messages. Finally, Feed Me Oil 2 challenges players to redirect liquids through various puzzle levels using different objects.

Givit Video Editor update (Free)

What’s it about? Givit is a video editor designed to accommodate video files from users’ Camera Roll, from the cloud, and from GoPro Hero 3+ cameras.

What’s cool? The cool feature for video editor app Givit is its ability to provide users with quick, easy ways to stitch together video scenes – either from the same video or multiple clips. It’s designed to work with footage from GoPro Hero 3+ cameras, as well as videos saved in the cloud or located on your iOS device’s Camera Roll. Even better, Givit allows users to highlight the best clips from videos as you’re shooting them live, so you can quickly put the best edits together later. There’s no limit on the number of videos you can stitch together or the length of the clips you create, and you can also add filters and other effects to your finished products. Givit Video Editor recently was updated with bug fixes and other feature improvements that make the app work even better.

Who’s it for? GoPro owners and fans of shooting videos with their iOS devices should give Givit a try.

What’s it like? Other solid video-editing apps include iMovie and Directr.

Dumbstruck (Free)

What’s it about? Messaging app Dumbstruck is all about reactions – after a user sends a captioned photo to someone else, they receive a video of the second person reacting to what they received.

What’s cool? Dumbstruck plays on the idea that you never get to see how people react to what you send them, especially when you’re sharing photos with your pals across the Internet. Dumbstruck fixes that issue; the app lets you send an image with a two-line caption to another user, and when they open that image, the app automatically captures their reaction in a short video and sends it back to you. The app lets you know when you receive a message and that your reaction will be recorded, and also lets users know how long ago their messages were received and when they were accessed.

Who’s it for? Users who like to share images and who would love to see how their friends react to those images should check out Dumbstruck.

What’s it like? For more image sharing, you’ll also want to grab Snapchat.

What’s it about? Use various machines and implements to direct oil into designated locations in puzzler Feed Me Oil 2.

What’s cool? Like its predecessor, Feed Me Oil 2 is a puzzle game about moving liquids around various levels. In order to do that, players use lots of different items, like jets, walls, fans and more, to redirect the flow of oil around various levels. You’re able to position objects wherever you want in a level, as well as adjust them in various ways, and your score is based on how few objects you can use to solve any given scenario. Feed Me Oil 2 includes new levels and Facebook capabilities that let players share their highest ratings with friends.
