Nokia Video Trimmer helps you shorten videos; shows up in the Store, but you can't download it yet

Nokia already has a plethora of apps available in the Nokia Collection, but the manufacturer isn't halting with what's currently available. Video Trimmer is an app we covered at the Lumia 1020 launch event, which enables consumers to conveniently shorten videos. All it takes is some magic and some sliding controls to cut down the duration to a single clip. 

The app has now arrived in the Nokia Collection, albeit hidden, though you can at least look at it. That's the good news. The bad news is no, you can't download it, so consider this a teas post for this Friday when the Lumia 1020 finally goes on sale (You can see the app in action in our video below, it's worth the watch).

Video editing has long be sought after for Windows Phone devices and Nokia heard consumers loud and clear. While the app is fairly basic at the moment, presumably Nokia could continually add to it much like their Creative Studio app. We could invision Nokia adding filters and other wizardry to Video Trimmer to make a full on video editor in the future--seems like a natural step for them, no? Indeed, the fact that it is a separate app that can be independently updated from Pro Camera tells us that Nokia has plans for it.

Back to the app itself, once you're done altering the video, the end result can be saved to the device or uploaded and shared over WiFi or mobile data connection. It's a neat little app that will go well with the new Lumia 1020.

But what about other Nokia 92x devices? They too will get video editing with a future update, as we confirmed with the company in New York. It will evidently be a part of the Amber update that also brings Pro Camera support. That update will also bring stereo-audio recording, bumping the current mono mode that we have now. Nice.

You can try to download Nokia Video Trimmer from the Windows Phone Store on a Lumia 1020, though we're betting this is a look-but-don't-touch kind of thing for everyone else. Thanks, Jackniel, for the tip!
