VidTrim – A Video Editor For Android
If you are looking for a simple video editor for Android, look no further as XDA forum member neoMJ has developed one for Android.
VidTrim lets you trim video clips right on your Android phone as well as playing and deleting your videos. Once trimmed, the app lets you save the trimmed version as a new clip or overwrite the original.
The app should work with most Android devices but there are still some on which the application does not work. This is due to the fact that each Android device manufacturer uses their own encoding format and the application cannot handle all of them. The app, however has been tested on the Samsung Galaxy S, and the dev has asked that any issues on other devices be reported back.
VidTrim is free and is ad supported – for more information and to download the app, visit the application thread.

Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
