Catch us on Viddy

If you think video is beyond your abilities, you should try Viddy. It’s social video sharing on the short scale.

How short? Fifteen seconds.

You can handle 15 seconds, right?!

Here’s how it works. Viddy lets you capture 15 seconds of video, edit the audio and like Instagram and Tadaa, run it through filters then share it with your friends/followers.

And you can share through more than just Viddy’s built in social network. It’ll also upload your video to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or Tumbler.

Plus, it’s quick, practically instant capture to post.

But when should you use it?

A picture may be worth a thousand words but sometimes it’s the motion and sound that’s most important to tell the story. Use Viddy when the ambient noise or motion of the scene is important to the mood of the piece.

How do I use it?

This is a single scene, so your edits will be strictly color enhancements and audio. There are a number of presets, and you can purchase additional filters and music through the app.

Who’s using it now?

Most of the people I have met using Viddy are 16-year-old girls. That’s a good sign. Teens are driving the app development so I expect many more improvements in the coming months. It also means it is easy to learn.

This is the best first step into video, especially if editing is the biggest turn-off for you.
