We're mainly going to work with LumaFusion (iOS only, €21,99). It's possible to participate in the workshop without having downloaded the app, but of course, it's more useful if you download LumaFusion in advance.
We also take a look at some other professional editing apps: Ferrite (audio, iOS only) Kinemaster (video, Android & iOS) and the soon to be released Adobe Rush (video, Android & iOS).
