If you want to install and use the iMovie app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type iMovie in the search bar and press Search. Click on iMovie application icon. A window of iMovie on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

Download on Andriod, Iphone
Free On iTunes

Thank you for reading this tutorial. Have a nice day!

  • Great 👍🏻 but

    By Mama Music4
    It’s really a great game but once you do some you get tired of making movies and trailers so I was thinking it would be cool if you guys added some more stuff in there also I think for music for The background of your iMovie you should be able to get songs from your iPad or phone and transfer it to iMovie please consider these ideas I would also like to say that there should be more sound effects to go with your movie also you should give the people who just started A Lerner video to be able to learn how the whole process works it was confusing to me when we first started doing in class so I think you should make something that would show everybody how to write and everywhere and everything else I didn’t know how to ride till like a week after so that tells you how confusing it is and if there is a learners video you guys should make it easier cause I’m pretty sure we watched it or that was somebody else’s but I am still please consider these I would really like to have more it is really fun game not really game so I really like it it is very fun to do in your free time and if you guys could keep adding stuff please do it but I would rather you had not have to update the app to get it that would be great because some I am now about update my iPad at school but I am on my phone so if you could please do this so be great thank you
  • It used to be good. but it needs to be updated!

    By Annsmanjoe
    I loved iMovie! I used it ever since it came out up until my iPhone 7 Plus all the videos I ever made was through iMovie on my phone it just works so good that I did not even use my computer everything seem to work fine but for some reason on my iPhone 7 Plus iMovie started glitching out crashing the app and it just would not work when you created a video half of the video titles would be black so when you’re playing the video and it goes to the next track it would just be a long black bar that you would have to edit again cut it and restart your phone just to see your change and then once you exported your video all the sound would be out of sync with the video even though it was all on one track and not added sound. This became very aggravating and I deleted iMovie and then reinstalled it when I got my iPhone X is the same issue it’s not updated for iPhone X at all and all the bugs are still present from when I had my iPhone 7 Plus. The only reason it got two stars is because are used to love it but now I cannot even make a simple slideshow with three or four pictures without it throwing black bars in on sinking the audio. I have submitted many many different feedback request to the app support team the beta thing and just Apple in general and never got anything done so I figured I would leave a review I’m not sure how the biggest company in the world can’t update their own app
  • Good, but some suggestions

    By Upset with program:(
    I think the app is great! I use it to edit my videos and make them look professional. There are a few things I think Apple Should do though. First of all, I think they should add an option to actually move the text wherever you want, not just where the set locations are. I also think they should make an option to choose the color of your text. This would be very helpful! Lastly, I think that we should be able to add a picture over a video (overlapping). I think that adding these features would bring the app to 5 stars by me, and I'm sure it'll bring much more happier customers in the future. Something else to note, which really frustrates me, is the fact that when you have missing photos or videos in your project, it doesn't let you save it! I've worked so hard on this one project and because I have 1 picture missing from my camera roll, I can't play it back or share it! Also, I do not like how you cannot move audio to the exact spot where you want it- songs you have in your library have to start from the beginning of the movie, not when you want it to Please fix this!!
  • Overall great, but some suggestions as well

    By Kobi Bryan
    I really love this app! It’s very simple to use and can be used to make some very nice videos. The way you can make trailers is super cool too! It basically makes it for you and it comes out looking very professional! However there are some things that I really wish would change. First of all the text, I wish you could move it wherever you think its looks best, not just the center or bottom left or right corner and be able to choose a color for it. Another thing is the fact that you can’t do the slow zoom effect which is gaining much fame amongst YouTubers. I also wish that you could do some more effects like wavy effects or distortions if that makes sense. I know that you can do some of these on IMovie on Macs but that leads me to the last thing, I wish there were just overall more of the things you can do on Macs available for iPhones because let’s face it, most people with IMovie have iPhones. But with just a couple changes it could be sooo much better!! I hope you take this into consideration 😊

  • Great!! I love it, but..

    By s5#*==
    I just think it needs more types of transitions, like you zoom in and zoom out and it’s on the next clip, or flip the picture. Do you get what I mean? Please and thank you 😊
  • Exporting

    By 567895432
    I’m a faithful YouTuber and I currently rely on my phone as my camera.... I’ve been trying to upload a 10 minute video to my channel and the export gets to the very end and then just stops.. It’s not my storage because I don’t get the message so what’s wrong with iMovie?
  • Eh

    By Starboy980
    When I go on I movie it kills your battery but also I hate how when I made a movie then deleted the videos I could not watch it which is dumb because nothing saves over all its 2 stars
  • Dont download if you expect to make long videos.

    By Tiago Rocks2_YT
    I love IMovie so much I tried out Kinemaster but it had a water mark on the top right corner and that really bothered me because I have to pay like $30 Per month to remove it but IMovie doesn’t have a stupid watermark but if your wondering why I rated it 4 stars is because 1.When I screen record and edit it on IMovie and record my voice it removes my voice when I’m editing it. 2.When I try to add music in the background and Voice over It sounds so loud and it’s at like 100% not 500% volume 3.When I try a louder volume/ above 150% It sounds like bass booted or something But other than that I love iMovie Just please fix these problems I have a YouTube channel and I just don’t want people hearing my voice at like 500% volume
  • This is ok but...

  • Okay

    By unicorn🧐
    I’ve had this before, but when I went to re-download it it wouldn’t let me😭
  • Basic and obsolete

    By TechnoDaddie
    Quick and simple for short vids. But useless for vids longer than 14 minutes. This means anything significant cant be uploaded once edited. Useless.
  • Please fix this
