Vine, Snapchat, and Instagram dominate when it comes to capturing and sharing video and images, but newcomer KnowMe has arrived to make editing videos easier. Launching Thursday, the app allows users to create videos from all the media on their phones and from the Internet. Users can also share their creations across the platform.

KnowMe lets users hold thumbnail images as they talk over them, add preexisting audio or new music, rearrange segments, and record live video. Final creations can be shared publicly or privately via text, email, or various social media platforms.

The Jinx director Andrew Jarecki 
founded the app in hopes of cutting out the boring parts of video editing. Catfish host Nev Schulman serves as a KnowMe ambassador, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams is one of a handful of financial backers. Along with Abrams, KnowMe counts Trevor Noah, Mike Meyers, and Sean Hayes as users.

KnowMe is available for free download in the App Store.
