A few interesting iOS apps (video & utility)
- Video-recording app Precorder takes a cue from the world of reality TV production: rather than recording everything to disk in hopes of getting some good nuggets, it buffers a video stream (a la DVRs). It’s constantly saving the few seconds of video before you hit record, so if something interesting happens, hit record & capture it. If not, no worries: there’s nothing to delete. I tried it with the kids yesterday & it worked nicely.
- 8mm Vintage Camera brings the trendy retro aesthetic to handheld video, “capturing the beauty and magic of old school vintage movies. By mixing and matching films and lenses, you can recreate the atmosphere of those bygone eras with 25 timeless retro looks.” [Via]
- Written by Lightroom team vets Troy Gaul and Dustin & Dylan Bruzenak, Handoff “simplifies sending things from your computer’s web browser to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch” via a combo of app + desktop browser extensions. Looks clever and useful.
