iPhone: 5 Excellent iOS Apps for Capturing and Editing Video

These days I don't even own a standard camcorder anymore. Sure, there are times when it would come in handy for doing particular types of video, but I find myself turning to my iPhone 4 more and more for producing the short videos I produce for my blogs and podcasts.

Face it, the iPhone is in my pocket and always with me. I can see something I want to capture and then record it with little to no fuss in very high quality. With an iPhone 4s you can even record in full 1080 resolution if you wish, although I find the 720p video of the iPhone 4 to be almost perfect for uploading and viewing on YouTube.

The built-in camera app on the iPhone allows you to trim the start and end of your video, but the programs listed below allow you make a variety of changes to your video, even combining them as you would on larger, desktop PC-based editing systems. They are a great place to start if you want to take your iPhone video making up a notch.

This DIY domino clock tells the time using three LED-lit tiles via Arduino Blog

After coming across Carbon Design Group’s Domino Wall Clock, which uses electronic magnetic coil motors to reveal white dots, Instructables member “Kothe” decided to create a simplified version of their own. The clock is comprised of three custom dominoes — the first tile for hours, the second and third for minutes. Unlike its inspiration, Kothe’s device uses addressable RGB LEDs as dots that allow for a variety of colors to shine through.

On my iPhone…IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS

IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS My best description of IFTTT, both their main web site, and this new iOS app is "a scripting language for the We." It allows you to set up "recipes" that watch one particular service, like Feedly, Evernote, Gmail and more, and then take action on another service whenever a particular action occurs. I use this to automatically save my shared items from Feedly and elsewhere into an Evernote Notebook and also use it to post automatically post information on a variety of services. The iOS app adds to this functionality by allowing you to take various actions on your phone and triggering IFTTT actions whenever they occur. In the case of the iPhone, initiating actions can include adding new contacts to your iPhone, taking a new picture and more.  For more complete information on how IFFTT works, visit ifttt.com    From the iTunes App Store...
