Since Twitter’s Vine decided to enter into the video social networking apps race things have been rapidly changing in the photo and video sharing apps department, with Facebook’s Instagram introducing a 15 seconds video feature that generated over five million videos within the first twenty four hours of its release as reported by Appannie.com. Here is a look at the four top video sharing apps you can enjoy with your family and friends.
Vine is the most downloaded non-game app according to Appannie’s June Index. The only version available this app is for smartphones in both iOs and android. Vine can be used to create short, beautiful, looping videos in a simple and fun way for your friends and family to see. This app can be used here in China without a VPN involved and can be used to share the videos on Facebook and Twitter. The app gives unlimited uploads where you can find, follow and interact with people close to you. This app is for children above 12 years.
This old timer is still going on strong with a universal app available in both phone and tablet format also across iOS and android. The only draw back about this app is that you can only connect using a VPN. But the features are still the same uploading videos; easy sharing with family through Google+, Facebook, twitter and e-mail; subscribing to your favorite channels and make playlists. This is for children above 12 years.
This app has been around for two years now but it has just gained momentum with the introduction of Vine and company to the market. There is only the smartphone version available but its both on iOS and Android. This app is both a photo and video sharing networking app where a photo or a video is taken then a caption added followed by sending it to a friend (or maybe a few). They’ll view it, laugh, and then the snap disappears from the screen, this is unless your friend takes a screenshot! This app is for children above 12 years.
This app has been around for sometime but only the photo sharing side. It’s available on both iOS and Android for smartphones. It helps to customize your photos and videos with one of the custom-built filter effects. It involves taking everyday pictures and transforming them into amateur works of art so as to share with friends and family. Now with the newly introduced 15- second video feature people can share both photos and videos under one app. This app requires a VPN while in China for accessibility. This app is for children above 12 years.
