There is a new way to edit videos on the go, and I'm thrilled to be chatting about Givit, a easy to use iPhone app that lets you make and share highlights from your videos with your friends.

Just to get some basic info out of the way, the app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad (it requires iOS 6 or later). The app is completely free, so head over and Download Givit.

Okay, now that we got those basics through, lets talk about the app. I downloaded the app to my iPhone and took it for a test run. The interface is very clear and easy to jump right in. I followed my dog, a Basset Hound, for an hour and documented what he did in videos. Now, the whole hour would have been impossible to shoot on my iPhone, so I took a lot of very short videos. The first thing that struck me about Givit was that it had no limit on how many videos I could pull from to make the final edited video. The next coolest feature was the Live Highlighting. As you are recording, you can simply tap a button to highlight cruical moments to make it easier to go back to them. Other features included motion effects (like slow-motion and speeding up shots), titles (lots of different styles), music, and still photo intergration. This tool can be used greatly to string together photos and videos for big life events or even a normal day to share with family and friends on the go.

When you are done editing your video, it takes less than 30 seconds to share it across the web- YouTube, Twitter, Facebook… As if sharing the video wasn't enough, Givit also gives users 5gb of Cloud Storage. Interested in downloading the app? Leave a comment and let us know what kind of videos ou'd be editing with the app.!

We heard the rumor over and over throughout the years that print newspapers are dead and that paper books are on their way out. But that took on a whole new meaning with the creation of e-readers and of course the iPad. Personally, the paper aspect might be on the way out, but the iPad has taken newspapers and books to the next level. As a kid I used to image a future where books, news and articles magically downloaded right into your hands rather than having to go to the store to buy them. I thought it would be cool if pictures moved, breaking news actually appeared then and there. It all seemed like sci-fi stuff back than. On the level of flying cars and robot football.

Well, we might not have the flying cars and robot football, but newspapers and books have reached future levels.  On April 12th, a pretty cool new “appazine” was launched for the iPad, the collection, a monthly look at globally relevant topics whose goal is to “excite and challengae” readers. Going back to the idea of future-istic newspapers and magazines, the collection is highly interactive that gives different readers a different experience based on the features they enjoy and focus on. Some of the features include panoramic photography, audio, video, 3D digital animation, creative morphing, rubbing, and X-Ray lens, and get this, the appazine is being released simultaneously in three languages; English, German, and Chinese.

You can download the collection directly from the app store on the iPad. They are currently holding a contest where you have to tweet to enter for a chance to win an iPad (along with a free 7 month subscription to the collection)! All that you have to do for your chance to win is tweet this message: Stay up-to-date with current events by using #thecollection iPad App. That’s it!
