#3 – Lumen5

Lumen5 is a brand new program that turns blog posts into videos. We’ve used it extensively since it was launched earlier this year and love it.

Lumen5 “reads” a blog or webpage and puts its content into an easy-to-use interface for creating a video. Anyone can use it, even someone with little to no experience with video creation.

For all it’s ease of use, it’s worth noting that Lumen5 currently does not have a mobile version.


  • Free, includes Lumen5 watermark
  • Pro $49 / month

#4 – Enlight Videoleap

We are including one app-only video solution. Enlight Videoleap is an easy-to-use app with a high user rating. This platform makes it easy to add video, images, text, adjust color, add effects and so much more.

Enlight Videoleap can also do some complex layering, blending, and masking for professional effects. Don’t worry though, the interface is intuitive, and the app is created for amateurs.
