Takes video app
Free for iOS devices at Apple App Store
Another day, another cool video app. If you’ve learned to love Vine, Twitter’s brilliant tool for shooting six-video clips, you’ll likely get a kick out of this smart alternative.
Takes acts like an app for shooting still images. Touch the shutter button, the screen flashes and there you are. In reality, Takes is shooting video, and the camera starts filming a couple of seconds before you hit the button. How it does this, I don’t know. But as a result, each shot is a little movie a couple of seconds long. Takes then stitches these shots together, with a nice dissolve effect the smoothes out the transitions. The results look like a slideshow, but one made up of moving images.
Takes doesn’t have a time limit on videos, unlike Vine. And like other popular video apps, Takes makes it easy to add visual effects and a music soundtrack. Of course, you can share your shots with friends via Facebook, Twitter or e-mail.
It’s a golden age for video apps, and Takes is another excellent entry in the genre.
