Yeah yeah, Vine is all the rage right now. But remember Socialcam, the share-heavy iOS video app from effects-wizard Autodesk? If you don’t, here’s a reminder that the app is a sharp tool for shooting and sharing quick vids on Facebook — and it’s just been spiced up with HDR, new filters and the ability to shoot in 720p.
Autodesk says the new version (5.0) contains HDR and effects with “one click real-time mapping and color correction,” which sounds pretty impressive. Add all this new stuff to the already provided features, like the ability to choose themes, soundtracks and titles, and Socialcam’s trick of uploading videos in the background.
As it seems with most apps these days, Android coming soon — next week, in fact.
