    "The only downfall to this app is that it does have a 2gb limit, so if you are really busy it may not be enough, but I think for most people it is more then sufficient. This is great for long conversations or interviews Best of all this app is easy to use, free, and just awesome."

    "I have been trying to edit my videos the hard way with just the stock functions that came with my phone. It was so frustrating I pretty much gave up on it and searched for a better option. I found the solution and I'm thrilled. The KineMaster is an extremely high quality, intricate app that allows anyone to edit their videos and images. If I can figure this app out and work it well, anyone can."

    "I can't really see Dropbox being used massively by journalists. While the platform could easily allow for people to cross collaborate, it seems like an unprofessional solution for journalists. Overall, Dropbox is really good for sharing files and folders but at times there are inconsistencies with their restriction system."
