Vidiloop, developed byVidiloop, is a neat new way to create and share short video clips. Similar to Vine, this particular app allows you to easily start and stop video recording with a tap of your finger.
Concept and Functionality
Life can zip by almost too quickly, so wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could capture the essence of a moment or experience without going through a ton of trouble?
Vidiloop does just that by allowing users to create one 7 second video consisting of small fragments. These compilations are a cool way to capture several moments and put them together.
Simply create a Vidiloop account and start recording.
All you have to do is tap your finger on the screen and hold it for as long as you want to record your video clip.
Releasing your finger stops the recording. The only limit you have is the total time of the video, which is a mere 7 seconds.
Sometimes short and to the point is the best way to capture a moment, though!
Vidiloop is still in beta according to a notification when you first open the app, so crashes might occur. My Nexus 7 handled the app fairly well, and I only experienced crashes when trying to record video. Other than that, it’s very easy to navigate around the app.
Vidiloop functions somewhat like a standalone social network, allowing users to “love” and share videos. You can even create your own profile, complete with a photo.
When you watch a video clip, it will loop indefinitely. In essence, Vidiloop is a really neat way to make a GIF-like movie.
There are also video streams which you can check out, such as the most popular Vidiloop clips and the latest clips. This is a neat way to browse what others have posted, as many of the clips are actually pretty neat to watch.
As far as suggestions, I’d love to see video categories and/or tags for clips, which would allow users to not only categorize their video, but also easily find clips by others that interest them. This would make browsing Vidiloop much more efficient.
Vidiloop is available to download from Google Play for free and doesn’t have any ads or in-app purchases. It’s a very nice “what you see is what you get” kind of app.
Overall, this app shows tons of promise and if you’d like to get creative with short video compliations, Vidiloop is definitely worth a try. As I mentioned before, be wary of bugs and crashes seeing as it’s still in the early stages of development.
Vidiloop requires Android 4.1+. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
