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.

Elsewhere Online: AT&T's Spam Filter Gets A Bit Too Aggressive

This story from TechDirt lays out yet another reason I recommend that folks DON'T use the email provided to them by their ISP. My typical recommendation right now is to get a Gmail account instead. It also points out why I want to manage all my SPAM on my end, without pre-filtering from an ISP. I will gladly manage my spam if it helps to insure that I see as many of my "real" messages as possible. Again, Gmail's tools work pretty good in this regard. Having an alternative email account also insures you will keep the same email, even if you decide to leave your current ISP. Witness all the folks holding onto AOL accounts just to keep their AOL email address. Thank goodness at least that is free now. AT&T's Spam Filter Gets A Bit Too Aggressive You can certainly understand why ISPs offer spam filters. It's a service for users who don't want to be totally bombarded with spam. But what I've never understood is that these ISPs rarely give the us

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...
