Watching the Debate? Share Video Clips in Real-Time With This App
Wouldn’t it be great if a mobile app let you cut those short moments of video and share them with friends instantly in real-time? If you’re answering “yes,” Cliptamatic is for you.
Cliptamatic lets users search a collection of video clips from live events, updated in real-time, and select a short clip for sharing with friends. Users can also subscribe to channels, which deliver content created by others across the network in a given category of content, such as politics.
As with Instragram, there’s a social networking element built-in: users can “like” and comment upon one another’s content right in the app. Clips can also be shared externally to Facebook.
“Since Presidential debates were first aired on television in 1960, they have been defined by ‘defining moments’ that live on in political history,“ said Athan Stephanopoulos, CEO & Founder of GorillaSpot Media, which developed the app. “With Cliptamatic, users can share those moments in real-time as part of their own debate commentary in what is already the most social media-driven election to date.”
Where’s Cliptamatic getting the video? The company has partnerships with a wide array of media outlets, including Paramount Pictures, HBO, CBS Sports, ABC, Big Ten Network, FX Networks, MTV, Major League Baseball, IGN.com and South Park Studios (Politics is far from the only kind of content available on the app).
For now, Cliptamatic is iPhone-only. It can be downloaded in the App Store free of charge.
