    "I love this idea! Having a small child who truly loves watching Youtube videos on his tablet really makes me question the types of kids videos he is watching. I have thought many times how I'd like to start a few kids channels or even funny things my two year old does that I capture on video but wasn't sure how I would even post this to Youtube and create a following. I will definitely check this Creator Hub out again!"

    "Apple is usually known for its quality products and software and iMovie proves to be one of the greats. It provides an intuitive way to edit movies on any device and provides room for creativity to those seeking it. However the latest version seems to have run into issues where users have had problems with it."

    "At the time of this writing Render Forest is/was ranked #6 on this list. However, as a creative marketing director of mid sized firm without an inflated budget, I have used all but one of the items in this list. Without a doubt there is one that stands out not only to me, but also to clients. That is Render Forest. I'm not going to lie, I've charged 2-3 thousand dollars for a video that cost me only thirty dollars. That's the level of quality in their videos. It's one of those services that makes me question if I'll even 'have a job' in five years. Now I've been using RF since it began and one thing I can say stands out is that they have always worked hard to improve the product and the platform. Bringing new videos on a regular basis and making the platform easier to use, also regularly. There are a few good products on this list but only one is worth my commentary. And that's Render Forest. Whether you're a YouTuber looking for a kick ass logo reveal or a music artist looking for an inexpensive way to turn your music into eye candy...RF has it. Try it for yourself and tell me I'm wrong."

    "Magisto is a great option for a video editor. It's a nice affordable option that doesn't short change you on features despite this. Great resource for those who have video editing to do, but it is not really there to create ads. It is more for the post process, getting your video just right."
