Along with the announcement of the red iPhone 7 and the all-new 9.7-inch iPad, Apple also introduced its new video editing app called Clips. The app allows users to combine video clips, photos and music as well as add animations to make creative videos.

Apple’s Clips app is pretty much borrows most of the features found on other apps like Snapchat, Instagram, according to 9To5Mac. Clips itself is completely separate from the iOS Camera app so users can capture and edit without switching apps.

What makes the Clips app unique is that it isn’t made complicated with timelines, tracks or other tools. Users can start shooting video or taking photos right on the app, or just add media from their iPhone or iPad Photo library.

When a user’s done combining photos and videos, they can then go on and add animated captions that Apple calls Live Tiles. There is also a wide range of filters including comic book filters, speech bubbles, shapes and full-screen animated posters. The app also comes with “dozens” of music soundtracks that they can add on their edits.

“Clips gives iPhone and iPad users a new way to express themselves through video, and it’s incredibly easy to use,” Apple’s VP of apps product marketing Susan Prescott said. “The effects, filters and amazing new Live Titles we’ve designed for Clips let anyone make great-looking, easily sharable videos with just a few taps.”

Lastly, users can instantly share their edited videos from Clips right onto their social media accounts like Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Vimeo and more.

Apple hasn’t revealed the launch date of the Clips app, but it will be available for free sometime in April. The app is compatible with iPhone 5s or later, the new 9.7-inch iPad, all iPad Air models and all iPad Pro models, iPad mini 2 and the 6th generation iPod touch.
