Edit your movies with the same intuitive, frame-accurate, full-feature editing system used by Dan Lebental, editor of Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor: The Dark World and Elf.

TouchEdit’s gesture-based interface is easy to learn and even easier to use, yet delivers mobility and versatility like any other non linear desktop editor such as Avid or Final Cut Pro.

Listen to what the pros are saying:

" [TouchEdit] is a mobile solution for an editor working on a full system. Because the interface is so facile and the iPad picture is so brilliant, this has proven very useful to me."

*Jay Cassidy (Oscar nominated feature film editor for "Silver Linings Playbook", 2012; also edited Into the Wild, 2007; "An Inconvenient Truth", 2006)

"Since it's initial release, I used the TouchEdit app to cut some scenes on the pilot of the new series "About a boy", based on a Nick Hornby novel and directed by Jon Favreau and a MARVEL STUDIOS superhero short movie "All Hail The King" for "Thor: The Dark World" DVD release."

*Dan Lebental, ACE feature film editor ("Thor: The Dark World", 2013; "Iron Man", 2008, "Iron Man 2", 2010, "Elf", 2003)

Ratings and Reviews


ISO seven no longer working.

I purchased this app about a year ago and had no trouble with it.
I upgraded to ISO 7 and I can no longer get it to work?
What am I missing?
I tried dumping the app and downloading it a couple times no difference.
First of all there's no audio on the tutorial included in the app.
It's not my iPad, Audio works on all of the applications.
I can't seem to import video files from my photo library into a project?
I know these files are good because I use them on previous projects in the app on ISO 6
I went back and watched your tutorials and try to figure out what I was doing wrong.
But the new workflow doesn't seem to match the new app?
Please help.

See my original review below,

I just Started using this application, so if I'm impressed but I've run into a few problems.
The major one , I can't get the grease pencil to work?
I wish there were multiple tracks of video.
I'd like to see text for titling.
A wireframe mode for resizing video would be awesome.


Fantastic Start

This app is definitely a 1.0 release but there's so much value in it that it makes sense to get it now, learn it, and be ready for the next release.

It's frame accurate. It really is. No more editing approximately. The frame I choose to cut on, it the actual frame it shows me in the edit. I can get in and out to FCP and Avid (haven't tried this yet, but I'm not that familiar with Resolve and need to learn it).

I expect to use it for first cuts and editing on the go. It's definitely positioned to beat iMovie in the long run.


iPad Video Editing with TouchEdit

Hello. March 13
I am an Academy Award Winner. I am a Cinematographer and a Director member of the Directors Guild of America. I pretty much only edit on an iPad now cuz after a stroke I only got the fingers on my left hand that move enough to poke around and gesture on an iPad. I am delighted iPad video edit apps are here. I like 'em all. TouchEdit works fine, it's got TimeCode and can work with Final Cut Pro X. So, I can get the cuts done and send my TouchEdit work to the FCP gal to finish up just as she likes. I am back in business boys and girls cuz I got an iPad and TouchEdit. JOHN LONGENECKER, DGA
