iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
Storing and sharing your videos on iOS can be a bit tricky - especially the sharing part. That's something TVibes hopes to address by making it easy to save and stream your videos to cloud storage, and to give you your own personal channel.
When I first heard about Periscope, I was curious. What would it be like? What sort of broadcasts would come out of it? What new innovative ways would people find for it? The truth is I've found it addictive. I downloaded and sent out my very first broadcast on May 13. The short video was of my balcony and all my plants just as a trial to check out the features. No one watched, but it didn't really matter at the time.
iPhone & Apple Watch App - Designed for iPhone and Apple Watch, compatible with iPad
The Petcube Camera is a device that lets you use live video to check in on your pet, talk to them, and play with them using a laser pointer - all while you're away. And the Petcube app is coming to the Apple Watch, so you'll be able to hang out with your pet with all theconvenience of checking your watch.
If YouTube videos and reality TV shows like The Voice have taught us one thing, it’s that there are a lot of people out there who are anxious to show the world their talents. And if they’ve taught us a second thing, it’s that there’s an almost equally sizable group of people who are anxious to judge those hopefuls. What’s interesting about Chosen is that it actually caters to both of these crowds.
Chosen comes from the mind of David Hyman, and gives you the chance to become a social media star - or to find said star and be able to say you knew them when.
Performers have an impressive set of tools at their disposal. They can record themselves singing their own songs, do a little karaoke, lip sync to popular tunes, or upload their own video from outside of the app. Once it’s ready, they can then tweak the audio and the video with several different effects (be they silly, dramatic, or anything in-between). What’s impressive is that the audio tracks that play in the background when recording from the app will automatically be canceled out to prevent distortion or reverb - in other words you won't have to wear headphones while recording.
Judges, on the other hand, get to try and find those diamonds in the rough. Although their process is more of an assortment of mini-games. In one, they watch three different video clips and try to pick which performer was the most popular (it proves how “in-tune” they are as a judge). Another one presents a similar scenario except they watch a performer’s clip, then two different judges’ videos, and have to decide which judge was ranked the highest.
It’s this combination of talent sharing and gamified critique that make Chosen such a solid contender in a marketplace that’s already got a a few “talent scout” apps in it. Granted, I’m not going anywhere near the Performer side of things (you’d thank me if you’ve ever heard me try to sing before), but I could totally be a Judge.
So whether you want to show the world how you can belt out songs better than the original artists or if you’d prefer to have fun watching other people perform and telling them what you think, Chosen could be worth a look.
