Premiere Rush, available on multiple platforms including iPad, iPhone, and desktop, includes tools for publishing straight to various social networks like YouTube and Instagram, along with built-in access to Motion Graphics templates in Adobe Stock and a one-click auto-duck feature for adjusting music and normalizing sound.

The best email I think I've received in several years was the confirmation from Adobe that my CC subscription ended. I printed it and hung it beside my desk.

If you run a company that uses this software, it is great, no complaints.
