Snapchat (Android / iOS)
Among the most famous and popular applications to create funny videos of recent times there is certainly Snapchat, a very popular social network that has some features that were later also introduced on the Instagram photo social network.
The main feature on which Snapchat is based is given by the possibility of making short videos and applying a series of original special effects, thanks to numerous filters in real time. The singularity of Snapchat also lies in the fact that the videos made, once they are published on your profile, have a limited duration in time. In fact, after 24 hours from publication, the published videos are automatically deleted.
Snapchat is therefore an excellent application for those who want to create funny videos from the moment it allows you to totally give space to creativity, allowing ample possibilities to customize the movie made with numerous effects and tools that can be activated in real time.
Available on both Android devices and iOS smartphones and tablets, Snapchat is an application free which must be downloaded from the default virtual store of your mobile device. Then go to the Android PlayStore or the iOS app Store and, once you have searched for the application through the internal search engine, press the button Ottieni / Installa (on iOS), or on the button Install / Accetto (from Android device).

Then framing the subject or object to be recorded via the camera of your smartphone, then tap on the screen to view the filters in real time to be applied to the faces and possibly also to the effects and 3D animations to be applied to the movies.
To record a snap (i.e. video) press and hold the pulsing tondo in the center. At the end of the recording you can customize the video using the editing tools you will see on the screen: the button T allows you to write a text on the movie, the button with the pencil symbol allows you to draw on the video, the post-in symbol allows you to access the search engine of stickers while using the button with the scissor symbol and clip you can clip elements and add external links.
