Released on iOS early last August by YouTube cofounders Chad Hurley and Steve Chen, and hailed as an AppAdvice App of the Week, MixBit is a Vine-like video-sharing app that lets you stitch together multiple clips or “bits” to create videos. MixBit videos can be shared directly from the app or remixed by other users through the app’s official website.
Yesterday, Vine was updated with a Sessions feature for rough drafts and a Time Travel feature for editing videos. For its part, MixBit was updated with a number of improvements, including search, favorites, and clickable tags, aimed at making the app easier to navigate and use:
- Added search by title or tags to Browse
- Star your favorite videos and save them for later
- Tags are now clickable
- Flag inappropriate videos for review
- Pinch to change size of video display in Browse
- See more info like view counts and remixes when viewing a video by clicking “More”
- Support for Tumblr and improved sharing to Facebook, Twitter and G+
The new version of MixBit is available now in the App Store for free. The app is optimized for iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 6.1 or later.
Earlier this month, MixBit received its first major update. For more on that update, see Vine-Like Video-Sharing App MixBit Updated With New Features And Improvements.
