Apple is currently offering iPhone and iPad owners a free download of the popular video editing app Videoshop – an app that normally retails for $1.99 and has historically only been available for free a handful of times since its introduction around three years ago.

The Videshop app, which is capable of adding filters and other visual effects to videos, has been the go-to app for on-device iPhone and iPad video editing for a good while for some users, though it does behave better with video shot on iOS devices than content brought in from other sources. Given the fact that most video edited on an iPhone or an iPad is likely to have been filmed on that same device, we don’t see much of a problem there.

Getting your free copy of Videoshop is as easy as can be, though you won’t find the offer in the App Store. Instead, those wanting to take advantage of the offer for a free copy of Videoshop will need to do so via the Apple Store app. Here’s what you need to do.

Step 1: Download the Apple Store app for iOS if you don’t already have it.

Step 2: Open the Apple Store app.

Step 3: Next up, you should be looking at the Featured screen that shows a banner for iPhone 6s, amongst other things. Don’t worry, almost done. Simply scroll down the screen until you see the Videoshop app icon and the words “Make awesome videos.” Tap that banner.
