New App Turns A Simple Snapshot Into A Short Video Of Your Life
Between a photograph and video is something called a GLMPS. At least that’s what the team behind the new GLMPS service is hoping we’ll all be calling the five-second window taken moments before the snap of a photograph. A new iPhone/iPod touch app that captures these moments just arrived in the App Store. The GLMPS app hopes to succeed where others have failed. In particular, GLMPS will remind many of 12seconds.tv, Twitter’s failed social experiment that went offline late last year. Path offers a similar service, which remains online. In this case, GLMPS lets users snap a photo, which is then uploaded to their servers (along with the five second of video taken before the photo was taken). These video clips can then be uploaded to share with family and friends via Facebook or Twitter. Features include:
It will be interesting to see how GLMPS catches on with the masses. Download it today in the App Store.
