  • iVideoCamera: Video Recording For The iPhone 2G/3G. AppStore Approved


    It appears Apple really is loosening it's grip on what developers can submit to the AppStore. I received an email today that informed me of a new App in the AppStore called iVideoCamera that lets your record about 15fps on any iPhone.

    Although this makes me wonder, with Apple being so kind to the new handful of Video apps, does this mean that we might be seeing OS 3.2 soon? And could it possibly include the addition of video recording for the iPhone 2G/3G? It's quite possible at this point, as they wouldn't want too many apps "duplicating" a function that "already exists".

    iVideoCamera also gives you the ability to save to your camera roll or "Photos" and share via, FaceBook, YouTube, Vimeo, Twitter and more to come. With the approval of this App the devs are very excited to start updates. First Knocking, then UStream, I wonder what we will see next in the lineup of Video apps...

    iVideoCamera is available in the AppStore for $0.99.

    UPDATE: With the approval of this App, the developers were so excited they submitted an update for it already that improves quality with better resolution.

    Thanks to Niko Niittyranta for the tip



    From the official iTunes description: Fps is stated differently for some reason
    NOTE: Requires OS 3.1 so if you dont have it upgrade now.

    ** LIMITATIONS **
    - The iPhone can only capture about 3 frames per second
    - Videos are limited to about 1 minute in length
    - Resolution is low: 160x213

      Im really surprised as to how apple had been changing their approval on certain apps. I'm very curious as to how far one can go with these app submissions. I wish I was a developer with uniqe ideas! I hope this only gets better and better!

      sad news for OS 3.0 user like me

      Not really. IF your iphone is jailbroken on 3.0, and you want a video recorder, you have cycorder through Cydia for free!

      Wanted to see what would happen if I used it with a 3G[S] even though it already has video recording; found it just records as a normal video. I was a little disappointed because I wanted a really small FPS to see what it looked like.

      The app doesn't play in the background. What happens is the app utilized a glitch in safari where safari will continue to stream an audio file even when its only running in the background. Safari runs in the background by default so its a nice little trick.

      just make sure you never do that with live video.

      Wow, that's awesome. It's about time they started approving these types of apps. Now, let's see some video features in other camera apps for the 3GS, such as Genius so I no longer have to use the stock camera app.

      as previously said this should be offered free!

      i own a 3g and bought just because i was crazy about the whole idea of iphone but after all it doesn't have the most basic futures of a regular phone which we can purchase from $100

      bluetooth?? anyone forgot about it?
      changeable battery? even my grandfather's phone has this!
      Hm an iphone with 2megapixel camera and without video-recording?
      apple has to think twice about their products they are really good but if they want someone to purchase their phones they need to find something new in the market and not a 3gS phone which is faster with 3.2 megapixel!

      apple is not this company apple was the first company which created an ipod touch with so many futures available! they put a camera on ipod nano and they are selling heir phones with this futures? come on apple!

      i think apple is starting to understand that if they want to make money they need to give us what we wont so be ready for the next iphone to have more of what we want like 60-70 percent of the features we need and want because for this to be a superior phone it has to update its entire structure because three years no real changes people including me want more but they will leave some major features out so we can get another iphone in 2011 F U Stevie boy all hail Saurik
