Are you an inspiring or professional filmmaker? If so, you should take advantage of some of the great film-related apps that are available for your iOS device.

Compatible with the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch, iMovie is an excellent way to edit video while on the go. I personally prefer using the iMovie app on an iPad over an iPhone due to the increased screen size, but either way this app is powerful if used correctly.  It has all the basic editing options, tweaks, and settings, but don't expect advanced features that you would find within Final Cut or Premiere.
