The team behind mobile video app Socialcam just keeps on trucking. The company, which is now part of Autodesk, is releasing a new version of its app today, adding a bunch of features that users have asked for, like expanded profile pages, as well as the ability to switch back and forth between front- and rear-facing cameras and hashtags and @ mentions that actually do stuff. It’s been nearly… → Read More
It’s been about nine months since Socialcam was acquired by Autodesk, and the company continues to innovate. It’s just released a new version of its iPhone app and has a new Android app coming soon. Even more impressive? The company is leaning on the expertise of its parent company to help improve things and boost the quality of videos that are produced. → Read More
Video sharing app Socialcam was recently acquired by Autodesk, but just because it’s no longer an indie startup doesn’t mean it’s stopped innovating and rolling out new features. About six weeks after being acquired, Socialcam is opening up its API to let third-party developers build apps around the videos its users shoot and share.
The first iteration of the public API will give developers… → Read More
Socialcam is hustling to be the “Instagram for video” app of choice, battling neck-and-neck for the top spot in the iTunes app store with its main rival, Viddy. It turns out that Socialcam now has a number of very powerful people rooting for it to win: An angel investor list that reads like a “who’s who” of tech and entertainment industry heavyweights.
By all accounts, Y Combinator’s latest Demo Day held last month for its Winter 2012 class was a biggie. With 66 companies presenting their apps, it was pretty impossible to name a startup that was the clear star of the group. But judging from the buzz I’ve heard over the past few weeks, Socialcam, a mobile app for shooting, editing, and sharing smartphone videos, certainly emerged as one of the… → Read More
Yesterday, Y Combinator double alum and video sharing app Socialcam debuted its new and improved wares at Demo Day. Today, the startup is following up with the official announcement of Socialcam 4.0 — the biggest release for the video sharing tool since it released its filters — that brings themes and soundtracks to the so-called “Instagram for video.”
Since last spring we’ve been tracking the progress of Socialcam, the ‘Instagram for Video’ that spun off from Justin.tv. The app, which is available for iOS and Android, hit the 2 million download milestone at the beginning of the month, and to mark the occasion it launched a new feature that made the ‘Instagram’ comparison even more apt: filters. Yes, you can now overlay your videos with an… → Read More
Socialcam, the ‘Instagram for Video’ that launched shortly before this year’s SXSW, has crossed a major milestone this week: it’s now been downloaded 2 million times across iOS and Android devices since it launched six months ago.
It’s also launching the 3.0 version of its app, which adds a feature that makes the comparison to Instagram even more apt: you can now add video filters. You can find… → Read More
Last spring, just in time for SXSW, Justin.tv launched a new standalone video app that has a simple purpose: it lets you share short videos with your friends with just a few taps. The app adopted a model that’s very similar to Instagram’s, with a ‘follow’ system and quick sharing to services like Twitter and Facebook. And it got off to a strong start, with 250,000 downloads in its first month… → Read More
Socialcam, the service from Justin.tv that’s essentially an ‘Instagram for Video’, has passed a big milestone: since launching in March, they now have more than one million downloads on iOS devices (actually they have more than that now, because they passed that number in as the end of June). Of those, they say over 335,000 unique active users last month across both their iOS and Android apps, the… → Read More
Socialcam, the video sharing app that was created by Justin.tv, is quickly fleshing out its feature set. The app — which is a lot like an ‘Instagram for video’, minus the effects filters — launched just in time for SXSW and had 250,000 downloads in its first month (the total download number is significantly higher than that, though they aren’t releasing figures until they reach their next… → Read More
Back in Feburary we took an in-depth look at Socialcam, the mobile video app for iPhone and Android that was built by Justin.tv. The app is easiest to describe as an ‘Instagram for video’ — fire it up and you’ll see a stream of videos recently recorded by your friends. And when you record a video, it’s very easy to quickly tag your friends using Facebook Connect.
On Thursday, I used Yobongo all day, which helped me find a new lunch spot, run into an old friend, and meet a Yobongo co-founder. That afternoon, I thought it would be a good time to write about the new group and mobile messaging wars for TechCrunch. A few hours later, Color Labs launched, to put it mildly. And, as I was editing this post on Friday night, Disco appeared, the new group… → Read More
Between the likes of picplz and Instagram, image-sharing sites are making plenty of headlines these days. And there’s one obvious offshoot that seems ripe for similar services: video. Granted, Path offers support for video, but it’s semi-private and there could still be an opportunity for a more public service to tap into this trend.That’s where Justin.tv’s upcoming app Socialcam comes in.
