Edit your movies with the same intuitive, frame-accurate, full-feature editing system used by Dan Lebental, editor of Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor: The Dark World and Elf.

TouchEdit’s gesture-based interface is easy to learn and even easier to use, yet delivers mobility and versatility like any other non linear desktop editor such as Avid or Final Cut Pro.

Listen to what the pros are saying:

" [TouchEdit] is a mobile solution for an editor working on a full system. Because the interface is so facile and the iPad picture is so brilliant, this has proven very useful to me."

*Jay Cassidy (Oscar nominated feature film editor for "Silver Linings Playbook", 2012; also edited Into the Wild, 2007; "An Inconvenient Truth", 2006)

"Since it's initial release, I used the TouchEdit app to cut some scenes on the pilot of the new series "About a boy", based on a Nick Hornby novel and directed by Jon Favreau and a MARVEL STUDIOS superhero short movie "All Hail The King" for "Thor: The Dark World" DVD release."

*Dan Lebental, ACE feature film editor ("Thor: The Dark World", 2013; "Iron Man", 2008, "Iron Man 2", 2010, "Elf", 2003)
