QuickVideo released – Android app

As I said in my last post, the new app I’ve been working on is out on the market and called: QuickVideo.

The motivation for writing this app came after many video capturing moments passed by me and left undocumented due to the time it took me to reach to my camera. After so many missed  moments I have decided to write a little app that will help me get in “recording mode” very fast and easy. The idea was an app that will sit on my home screen and be accessible, fast and reliable.

QuickVideo is a small app to install and have a link to on the home screen. A second (or less) from the moment of touching it’s icon, your android will start recording a video of whatever in front of it. To stop the video recoding, simply touch the screen – The most important mission accomplished and the video is now saved and secured on the phone SD card. After stopping the recording an options screen will pop out giving the ability to: play the video, rename it, delete it, share it or just go ahead and exit (until the next QuickVideo).

This is really a small and easy app that helped me fill a little gap in the media sector of my Android. I am always looking for ways to improve my apps, if you got some ideas/requests you are welcome to leave a comment or email me.

Work started on a new app

So after resting a bit from the android development due to insufficient brain juice, i am back and running on a new app.

As all of my apps, this one also comes out of my necessity of features using my phone. We all have situations in life that we think “ohhh that’s funny” or “I have to video tape that!”. When that happens, most of the time we either take the phone out and ask the people we are with to do the same thing again (which never duplicate the first time) or we just giving up the situation and staying without the video of it.

In my next one I’ll be trying to fix this issue by writing a small app that will get us filming as soon as we (and the phone) can. Getting the shortest way from the point reaching in to our pockets and getting the phone out to the point when we are already taping. As it sounds, it wont be a sophisticated app nor it will have a lot of options and user interface, but I hope it will help us getting more situations in life recorded and shared.

Stay tuned.
