SAN DIEGO, Dec. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- New iPhone and iPad apps launched today give consumers a free and easy way to share video using Givit (www.givit.com), the only cross-platform, private video sharing service on the market. The new apps extend Givit's support beyond desktop, web and digital cameras to include the latest iOS devices.
Givit makes it simple to share video captured on any camera with select friends and family. The service sends a private video link to recipients for viewing on their computers, tablets, phones and other smart devices.
With the new Givit iPhone and iPad apps, you can:
- Record and share videos with just a few taps
- Share privately—control who can watch and forward the videos you share
- Upload high-quality videos quickly behind the scenes with no waiting
- Watch and share all the videos in your Givit account on your iPhone, iPad or any computer
- Stream videos wirelessly to your Apple TV
- Store and manage all uploaded videos in one place, knowing that everything is securely backed up in your private Givit account
- Respond to videos with text and video comments
The new Givit apps integrate tightly with the iOS camera, camera roll and Contacts, making it easy to share video captured on the iPhone or iPad with just a few taps.
"Smartphones are now the camera of choice for recording everyday moments, but sharing mobile video is often a frustrating process," said Greg Kostello, president and CEO of Givit. "Givit makes it easy—and most importantly, by default we share securely and privately, rather than broadcasting your personal content across public social networks."
Kostello added that support on the iPad and streaming to the Apple TV unlocks a new viewing experience for users. "Reliving significant moments in the comfort of your living room takes personal video to a whole new level."
