Every option on the Settings panel is easy to navigate and understand.

The options are divided into different categories: Account Info, Social Settings, Notifications (limited in free version), Video Settings, About, Settings and Application Info.

Apart from the usual video editing stuff, I found Save to Google Drive, Guest Mode, and Surprise Me features to be interesting. If you enable the latter, you will be surprised by the automatic video creation of Magisto using the photos and videos available in your gallery.
