4. Quik – Free Video Editor
Quik is a complete video editing app brought to you by GoPro. I accidentally stumble upon this app, while doing research for the best Android app for video editing. And I’ve to say, although it’s not a perfect video editor, its text animation feature is pretty amazing.
Here is how it work. Import a video, add text overlays and export the file. Plain and simple.
But the way, I use it as it is — instead of importing a video for background, I use a plain white background. This way, you can use the animation text anywhere you want. And yes it comes with music as well, and all video can be exported to 1080p FHD. By default, there is a Quik logo at the end of the video, which is thankfully is optional.
And since it’s back up by GoPro, there is no rush to monetize the app. It’s completely free, no IAP or Ads.
Overall the app has a pretty good selection of animation styles (except the last few). And if you are wondering, which app do I use for my YouTube video intro, well it’s this one.
5. Legend – Animate Text in Video
Although Legend is a dedicated text animation app, it still has a few similarities with Quik. It is not a video editor like quick and what it means is, you can create posts with still backgrounds only.
This app is suitable for creating intro or text animations for videos. Choose an animation style, select text color, adjust layout format, and change the size of the intro. That’s about it. The app doesn’t have any other features and honestly, it is better this way. You don’t have to worry about any complicated color correction tools. You can share the posts by tapping the share button in the app or download it to the device for later. It also has an option to save video as GIF. Legend is free on the Play Store

You can add texts, photos, icon, and logo to your post. You can adjust the color palette of the post using the existing combinations or create an entirely new combination by tapping the random button. Change the design at any time and transform the entire project into a new one.
