With Halloween just around the corner, you may be interested in an app or two that can bring some fun into the day. Today, we’re taking a look at FXGuru, a fantastic video effect app that does the job just right and can be used for all occasions to greatly liven up the experience.


FXGuru is a relatively simple app and requires minimal setup. In fact, the only setup required is in creating a new video with effects. From this, you can select the accuracy of the effect, a filter from the vast list of choices, and how the sound effects get incorporated.

You can also adjust the quality of the video, file size, and frame rate. All except the frame rate require an in-app purchase of any effect. So if you buy any other additional effect, they become unlocked.


FXGuru is jam-packed with effects. Ninety-seven of them, to be precise. You can access about 30 effects for free, so don’t get too excited unless you’re planning to spend a bit. Nevertheless, the effects available without in-app purchasing should be enough for anyone and most situations.

So how exactly does it work? You select the effect from the list, point your camera at the scenery, and align the ground with the mesh on the screen. After recording, while keeping still for about 15 seconds (the time depends on the effect), the app processes it and spits out the video a few seconds later.

This is also not a half-baked app. I was initially skeptical at how decent and accurate the effects would turn out. However, I can confidently say that they are rather good for a mobile app. More so, you will not find effects capability like this elsewhere on the Play Store. The subject in the effect also looks realistic and like it’s actually touching the surface.

Along with the decent user interface, everything is a breeze to use. The sounds and music are kind of addicting. I would warn against using the app with volume on Halloween night!

What we liked:

  • Super sound effects and music
  • Easy to use
  • Professional-looking effects

And not so much…

  • Majority of effects are unlocked by paying
  • Takes long to download effects if you haven’t already
