Viddy — The Instagram for Videos — Lets You Create Visually Stunning 15-Second Slices Of Your Life

In this socially-connected world, it's kind of a sin when you cannot hit that tiny shutter on your phone, add a '70-esque look on it, and then share it with your friends using this well-celebrated app in the world: Instagram.

Instagram is one of the most successful startup companies who made it big in the social media scene, attracting the world's biggest online empire — Facebook.

While nobody knows what the future holds for Instagram after its recent acquisition with Facebook, one thing is clear: video-sharing apps like Viddy will soon take the lead, making it the next big thing in social media.

Viddy: The Instagram for Videos Lets You Transform Your Videos Into A Work Of Art

Viddy (link) is a new breed of app for the iPhone (Android & Windows Mobile version is in the works) that lets you capture 15-seconds event in your life, give it a cinematic look, and then share it with those who matter most. Think of Viddy as Instagram, but for videos.

New iPhone App Lets You Schedule, Send Emails/Text Messages At Specific Time

Viddy is quite straightforward to use. If you're opening the app for the first time, you may need to create an account first. Simply connect with friends via Twitter, Facebook and your phone’s address book, and you're good to go. As with Instagram, you can go and pull a video from your gallery, or shoot a new one. Once a video is selected, trim the clip as you see fit using a film strip timeline seen at the top of the screen.

Once trimming is done, you can add cinematic look on your clip by applying "filters" (well they called it "production packages"). You'll surely find it enjoyable to select music, apply transition effects, and do the necessary edits to make your video looks professional — just like film.

As with Instagram, Viddy users also have a feed of other users’ activities. Users may also comment and like posts, and see what videos are trending or popular.

I'm beyond confident that Viddy will explode just like Instagram did. Viddy just got another financial boost from its new backers and partners including high profile celebrities and tech luminaries Will Smith’s Overbook Entertainment, Jay-Z’s Roc Nation, Shakira and Twitter co-founder Biz Stone. This notable backing should propel the momentum of Viddy, which is now surging in popularity. Since its release, Viddy has attracted more than 10 million users, with another 300,000 signing up each day.
