Editor’s Note: This is the second in a periodic series of guest posts about journalists’ favorite mobile apps.

Hi, My name is Robb Montgomery and I am the author of “Mobile Journalism,” and host of a weekly Wednesday Clubhouse panel on mobile tools. I have been teaching smartphone video storytelling ever since I left my editing career at the Chicago Sun-Times and Chicago Tribune.

Here is my list of top apps for 2021.

Check out this video I made that shows how a reporter can use the DoubleTake app.  

Some professional-level apps like LumaFusion are only available on the iOS platform. VN video editor works well on both Android and iOS, so I keep it on my phone for teaching purposes. VN also can do some special effects that are exclusive, so it is pretty handy.

My apps list is constantly refreshed at the companion site for the Mobile Journalism book. 

Happy Filming!
