Point-And-Shoot Moviemaking App Directr Becomes More Social With Latest Update

April 21, 2013
Vine is great for sharing GIF-like videos that are anything but long. As Robert De Niro himself would have you know, "you can tell a whole story in six seconds," which is the duration of a Vine video. But what if you want more than six seconds and more leeway to create story-filled videos on your iPhone? Easy: allow me to direct your attention to the newly updated Directr. Billed as a "point-and-shoot moviemaking" tool, Directr offers professionally created storyboards to guide you in creating shareable videos. You don't even have to worry about the finer points of film editing, as videos made with Directr include music, titles, and transitions, among others. Directr offers the following key features:
