Wibbitz Takes Long Articles and Creates Video Summaries Out of Them

Posted by on June 27th, 2013
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Wibbitz takes text articles and creates video summaries out of them, giving users another way to keep up to date on the latest news. The app creators have found that reading long articles on mobile devices is too difficult, so they created Wibbitz to let you watch the news in form of video without needing to read. Users can choose from a number of news sources, such as world, business, and sports, and can arrange their feed in any order they wish.

Now, for an example, stop reading what I have to say about the app and watch the video explain it instead!

Video On Instagram – 15 Second Clips, Filters, Custom Frames, New ‘Cinema’ Mode

Posted by on June 20th, 2013
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom took to the stage today in a livestream, announcing a new video update for the popular photo sharing service, which is now owned by Facebook.

The new video feature, poised to compete with Twitter’s own Vine video sharing app, will give users 15 seconds of video, along with Instagram-style filters and a new image stabilization feature, called Cinema.

Instagram Video

Systrom showed a video clip of a barista at Blue Bottle Coffee in San Francisco. Users simply touch the screen to start recording, and lift their finger to stop, in a Vine-like fashion. The succession of clips, up to 15 seconds total, can then have one of thirteen filters applied to it in real time, just like Instagram photos. The rest of the process looks and feels just like the photo app.

Finally, Systrom previewed Cinema, a stabilization feature for the video taken with Instagram, and it looks stunning. Gone are the days of bouncy footage, though only in 15 second chunks.

Here’s a video for a closer look.

Instagram with video is available as a free update to owners of the app, on both iPhone and Android, right now.

Record The Moments That Matter In 1 Second Everyday

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

What a cool way to remind yourself to make every day count: 1 Second Everyday has you take a short video once per day, and then builds a compilation video with them.

For almost 2 years now, I’ve been recording 1 second every day, so I’ll never forget another day ever again. This project has had such a profoundly positive impact on my life, that I’ve passionately developed an App that will make it extraordinarily easy for anyone to do this too.

Reliving every single day of my life at age 30 in 6 minutes has provided me with a treasured perspective on life. It holds me accountable for making each day count.

Cloudee From Boxee Wants To Help You Share iPhone Videos

Posted by on December 3rd, 2012
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Cloudee is a cloud based video service launched by video software company Boxee as a way to store, view, and share your iPhone recorded videos. The app allows you to upload videos from your camera roll directly to your account and share them via email from there. The videos, once uploaded, can be viewed via a browser on the desktop or iPad, on in the app on iPhone. A desktop app is available to allow you to upload videos from your desktop as well.

Cloudee is currently free during the beta period. After the beta is over you will be able to access anything you have previously uploaded. But it appears as though there will be a fee to upload anything after the beta is over. While it hasn’t been announced, we can only assume that at some point these Cloudee videos will be available on your TV via the Boxee software.

Your computer is a powerful piece of technology, and it usually has a lot of storage space on it, enough to store band discographies that you’ve never even listened to one track off of. Your phone and tablet are great mobile devices, but they’re also great for listening to music and watching videos while at home. So, you’re sitting on your couch or laying in bed, and want to listen to that one album from that band that you’ve never really listened to all the way through. However, you’re too lazy to get up to your computer to actually put it on there. Or maybe you downloaded season 5 of Breaking Bad but your storage space is best measured in kilobyes, not gigabytes. If only there was a way to stream the media from iTunes to your iOS device!

Well, there is, and it’s called iTunes Home Streaming. This streams media from an iTunes library over a local wi-fi network to any iOS device.

Set it up on iTunes first. Log in with the Apple ID of your choosing – it’s best if this is the same Apple ID that was initially set up on the device, and is logged in to iCloud, but it doesn’t necessarily need to be. To manage the Apple ID that is logged in to Home Sharing, go to Settings -> Music or Video and tap Apple ID.

To access music from a local iTunes library, go to the Music app. Tap More, Shared, the name of your iTunes library (configurable from iTunes’s preferences), and then the standard music listings will instead show what is available from the remote library, which can then stream the music to your iOS device.

Now here’s the kicker: it also works for video. As long as the video in the iTunes library is compatible with iOS, then it will play. DRM-protected content purchased from iTunes plays back via Home Sharing too. These videos can also be streamed from AirPlay to an Apple TV. It’s the ultimate in high technology being used for new levels of laziness.

Now, the only real downside to Home Sharing is that it only works over local wi-fi. There are plenty of ways to stream music and video over the internet, but that would fill up a completely different article. Until then, enjoy using thousands of dollars of technology to stream video to TV without getting up to your computer.

New App: Xfinity/Comcast Continues to Confuse Customers With a New App That Does The Same as the Last App

Posted by on October 12th, 2012
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Xfinity / Comcast has released a new TV Viewer app that does parts of what you would want it to do. That goes along with the other Xfinity TV app that also does parts of what you would want it to do. Sigh. Pardon me for the following only slightly applicable rant.

Comcast is in the middle of an identity crisis right now and we are forced to go along for the ride. They seem to do everything in twos now. Comcast and Xfinity cable services. Xfinity TV and Xfinity TV Player apps to watch different parts of the same catalog of streaming TV. Two different streaming services – On Demand and Streampix. And why do they own NBC?

My head is spinning. Which app do I use to watch which show? Of course then there’s Hulu, and Netflix, and….

Did I perhaps, maybe mention how awesome Sling box is?

The fantastic hit game, Pocket Planes, is now on the Mac App Store, and Nimblebit sent us some great news on the way it will interact with the iOS version.

Players will be able to manage their airline from the comfort of their Mac, and pickup right where they left off on their iOS device when they’re on the go! The Mac version also introduces an exclusive plane model, the “X10 Mapple Pro” obtainable only on the Mac version.

In celebration of Pocket Planes coming to the Mac, as well as its recent arrival on Android, we’ve released the first in a series of “Pocket Planes Shorts.” A collaboration with LoadingReadyRun, “Pocket Planes Shorts” as well as upcoming “Tiny Tower Shorts” will showcase the lighter side of living in the bitizen universe!

The pygmies are back, and they’re sicker than ever–literally.

Please keep in mind that this daunting affliction is not limited to just Pygmies; all forms of life on every island, including gigantic apes, poo-slinging monkeys, hungry T-Rexes, and sharks with laser beams, run the risk of contracting this perilous malady. Even non-organic, inanimate objects can be contaminated, so exercise caution when using an outhouse, borrowing fishing poles, playing the bongos, and more.

App Update: Discover And Watch Online Videos On Your iPhone, iPad With Vodio

Posted by on August 17th, 2012
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Newly universal, Vodio may be just what you’re looking for when looking to discover new video from the web.

Vodio is like Flipboard for videos. It originally launched on iPad, but just came out on iPhone this week. It brought a new feature with it: Highlights. Based on videos you liked on your social networking profiles like Twitter and Facebook, as well as what you’ve previously watched, it’ll try and compile the best videos that it think you will like, and update them regularly. (It of course, asks for permission to look at your Twitter and Facebook profiles.)

Amazon Instant Video is now available on iPad, expanding out the Amazon’s vast library of video offerings to iOS users. This offers streaming of purchased movies and TV shows from Amazon, with the ability to sync up watch lists between devices. It also includes titles available from Amazon Prime, similar to Netflix, a service offering over 120,000 streaming movies and TV shows. It is only available as a yearly subscription from Amazon as part of the Prime service that also includes free 2-day shipping on Amazon items.

The app does not support AirPlay, so those looking to use it on their TV will have to find an alternate device to stream through, like a game console. It should be noted that Netflix doesn’t support AirPlay, either, but it’s available on the Apple TV directly. And? On pretty much every other device that can connect to the internet. Seriously, I have 10 devices that could watch Netflix, not counting computers.

iPhone and iPod touch users are currently shut out of using Amazon’s service entirely. Similar to the Kindle app, buying and discovering new videos to watch is not included, as it must all be done through the browser in order to comply with Apple policies.

Ever see cameraphone footage of a concert on YouTube and think, “if only there was some way to stitch all this footage together into a smartly-edited cohesive whole?” Vyclone says, “I have a way to do that thing you just said!”

Vyclone is designed to serve as a way to combine multiple videos of an event shot at the same location. When people at the same location shoot a 60 second video at or around the same time using Vyclone, and then upload it, the service combines them into one video. The app tries to intelligently switch between different videos in order to create a quality final product, switching angles at just the right time, and deciding on the best audio track to use for the video. Videos can be shared with just the members of one’s own Vyclone crew, the nearby crowd, or with everyone, with the latter two options making it possible for anyone’s Vyclone footage to be part of a video.

Think that Vyclone is a terrible hack of a director? Then use the Remix option to combine the footage in a customized way, and show Vyclone how it’s really done. Vyclone has just launched and is free to download.

The Expendables 2 is coming out in August, featuring more action movie stars from the last four decades than one could shake a stick at – a stick that would then explode violently. To help promote the movie, Lions Gate has released an Infinite Trailer app. What this lets users do is to record a 5-second video clip that then adds a special effect, like a grenade explosion or an airstrike coming in. Then, once the video is processed, it can be added to a trailer for the movie with other users and the actual stars of the movie, with the user’s inputted last name showed before their 5-second footage of awesomeness. Or, whatever random inanity they decided to put in. Thus, it creates an “infinite trailer” that could go on as long as there’s new footage to stitch in! For Comic-Con goers, there’s even an “exclusive” long range RPG strike effect, which I presume actually has to be recorded at Comic-Con because the app crashed whenever I tried to apply it. Crafty developers!

Recently, almost every iOS user has become an amateur photographer or videographer. Instagram is probably to blame for the rise in interest in amateur photos and videos. New apps to manipulate photos and video are popping up on a daily basis. PyroPainter is a photo and video app that allows users to add special effects to their pictures and videos.

Users can quickly put together clips with effects such as shooting fireballs, huge explosions, or shark attacks. The app comes with 40 effects for free with an additional 40 spread across two in-app purchases. Animated elements (like butterflies or sea-life), markers (like arrows and circles), and weather elements (like rain or fog) come with the app for free. WIth additional purchases, users can unlock magic (fireballs and more) and action (explosions and weapons) elements. Each in-app purchase pack is $0.99.

The developer also seems interested in user feedback for updates; an in-app feedback system is included in the app where users can vote for new features. The app is free and made for the iPhone.

With all of the exciting things one can do and watch on an iOS device, who wouldn’t want to record it sometimes? Now users can do just that with the new, aptly named Display Recorder app from Bugun Software. Those interested should check it out soon though because it may not be around for much longer.

Display Recorder sees and hears everything happening onscreen and makes a H.264 mp4 file out of it. Orientation, video, and audio quality can be adjusted and the finished products are exported to Photo Library. Users can even upload their recordings directly to YouTube through the app. Best of all, there is no length limit.

Similar apps have been available on jailbroken iOS devices for a while now but Display Recorder requires no such hacking. However, because of the nature of its service, many believe that it may soon be pulled from the App Store. For now though, it is available for $1.99.

Pulse App Gets Video

Pulse, the news aggregation app based in San Francisco (natch) is getting into video. In a post on their tumblr blog yesterday, they announced over 30 new channels with video, including video sites like CollegeHumor, Meet the Press, The Verge, The Daily Beast, The Wall Street Journal, Mashable, Fox Sports, Allrecipes, IGN, Newsy, The White House, FORA.tv and more.

Pulse plans on bringing video content from a wide variety of types of media as well, from television shows like Meet the Press, The Rachel Maddow Show, Nightly News, The TODAY Show to sports from ESPN and Fox Sports.

Pulse competes with apps like Flipboard, Zite, Editions by AOL, and Google Currents, so the addition to video to its already successful news aggregation system will be a test of how much users want video as well as RSS feeds from their favorite websites.

To get the new video content, simply update Pulse on your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch (or Android device) or download Pulse from the App Store.
