NewBlue Inc. a video technology company, re-launched an app that, if it works as well as it shows in the demo video, will allow users to get some amazing looking video editing results with no special skills. Vibop 2.0, a complete reimagining of the now defunct first version, hopes to do for for iPhone videographers what Instagram has for iOS photographers. That is, make adding really neat effects effortless and incorporate social network sharing to the utmost.
Using existing footage or that shot for a Vibop project on the fly, users can add professional-grade sounds, intros and mix and match any of the nine included themes: Silent Film, Super 8, Comic Book, Love Note, Tech Talk, Beatz, Postcard, and one theme that makes the app a potential standout, the custom Twitter theme. This feature uses a company’s (or person’s) personalized Twitter profile to create a unique branded video. Additional effects will be available for in-app purchase.
Once the project is completed the social networking component kicks in with integrated one-tap posting to YouTube of course, along with Facebook and Twitter. The templates and examples suggest the app is not intended for making full-length movies, but rather sending video postcards with some Hollywood flair. A direct-to-YouTube desktop version of Vibop is also available.
In their press release announcing the new app, NewBlue co-founder, Todor Fay explains “anyone can capture and share video – but the magic is what happens in between. The Vibop 2.0 app allows people to showcase their creativity and make a statement, democratizing mobile video with fun and easy-to-use tools.” We can’t wait to give this a test-drive but if you get to it first, be sure to tell us what you think in the comments.
Come Monday morning at 10am Pacific time, Phil Schiller will hit the stage at WWDC to put and end to all of the rumors about the next iPhone. We hope so anyway. I hope that a new iPhone, or maybe multiple iPhones, will be unveiled then. We know that at least OS 3.0 will be discussed heavily.
What features will the next iPhone have? Higher resolution camera? Video capabilities? More memory? There are so many rumors that it’s hard to keep up. There have been a few very interesting and convincing looking rumors the last couple days.
We’ll also, hopefully, get some more details on OS 3.0 and it’s release date.
I’ll be at the keynote on Monday and
I’ll try to tweet the major announcements to our Twitter stream (@148apps). If Twitter fails under the load, we’ll move over to our Friendfeed stream. Scratch all that. After further testing, I think the best option is going to be a special FriendFeed group, set up and ready to go with details right here.
You can still get in on our Design The Next iPhone Contest with some great prizes from Griffin Technology. The first prize is valued at an amazing $210. Hurry up though, the entries close at 9am on Monday!
This should be a good keynote!
