Apple Clips Coming To iOS
If you have been going crazy without your Vine videos, then it looks like Apple has you covered with their new application, Clips. Clips is a free downloadable app that will allow users to share videos with graphics and text effects. That sounds like Vine with more options to me but I digress. The videos shown on the Apple web site appear to be a few seconds long. However, the description on the iTunes page states that there won’t be a timeline so in theory your video could be as long as you want it to be. It will be interesting to see what people do with this video sharing service.
You have the option to record live video or use video you’ve already had on your phone’s library. In addition to using video already shot, you can use the “Live Tiles” feature as well. What this feature does is it will add text to the video when you speak in said video. You’ll be able to show off your creative side with different text features!
There will all kinds of effects you can add to your videos to give them that extra bit if charm. You can use the black and white filter to make it look like an old TV show. You could make it look like your speaking out of a comic strip balloon. You’ll also have the option to have the clip suggest who to share it with based on who’s in it or who you share things with the most. One of the better features (it sounds commonplace now but I like it) is that you can send your video directly to social media like YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram just as examples.
It will be interesting to see what direction Apple takes this video sharing service and will it go the way of Vine? Only time will tell on this one.
