This is not the first video sharing app for the iPhone. We’ve heard of Socialcam, an app that acts exactly like Instagram but for videos.
Well, Socialcam is not 100% like Instagram yet as they do not have funky filters to apply onto our videos. This is where Viddy comes in (and it’s FREE too).
According to their AppStore description:
Viddy is a simple way for anyone to capture, beautify, and share amazing videos with the world. Record a key moment of your life, make it beautiful, and share it with those who matter most.
Just like Instagram, we get to see our feed, a list of all videos uploaded by the people we follow. We also get the ‘activity’ tab for all activities and notification actions.
Here’s what differentiates Viddy from Socialcam. Users can upload a video straight from Camera OR from the video library. It also has a slew of filter effects which can be applied onto the videos instantaneously like how Instagram does to our photos. There are also 2 sliders for us to customize how much effect and background music to use on the videos.
Once you have applied effect, viewed and is satisfied with it, you can start tagging, giving description and sharing the video on multiple channels like Twitter, Youtube, Facebook, Tumblr etc. The screen on the right will appear if you tap on the ‘profile’ tab at the bottom right of the screen.
Uploaded videos will get a short URL which links to the video on their website like this http://viddy.it/dRjhD5
Here’s video I uploaded just now. Uploaded it to Youtube from my video gallery (not from Viddy) hence the low quality.
Try Viddy now since it’s FREE. 😀
