Before Instagram, we had no simple way to share photos from our phones. And by this logic, is there a simple, addictive solution to sharing video from our phones that no one has yet imagined?
Cloudee is an iPhone app with a simple, primary object: to help you actually share those video clips you take with your device rather than let them sit and waste away in your camera roll. It does this by letting you quickly upload any video on your iPhone to the cloud and share it in a few clicks. It’s really easy to use, and you can check out the beta at the LFW Shop.
The iPhone makes it easier than ever to capture videos, but in most cases these videos just sit on your phone until you run out of space.. Your videos deserve better. Cloudee gives you unlimited storage for all of those memories where you’ll never have to worry about running out of space or losing them.
How Cloudee Works:
You get your videos onto Cloudee in one of two ways: you take a new one with the app and upload it or you choose an existing video to upload. Uploading existing videos with other video apps I’ve used has always been a bit tedious, but Cloudee’s taken measures to avoid that. You simply tap the up arrow in a list of videos, add a name, and add it to a collection. Once you do this it’ll start to upload in the background and you can continue queuing up more videos. I was able to go through my entire collection of long lost iPhone videos and set the ones I wanted to upload in about 20 minutes. It was really nice to be able to breeze through what is, generally, a pretty annoying process.
Cloudee essentially provides you with an online video stream, much like Instagram does for photos, but with a little more organization. When you upload a video you create collections that are viewable by other users of the iPhone app or on the web. You can also set collections to be private if you don’t want to share them with anybody. Collections are just a simple stream of videos with likes and comments from others who have viewed them. Everything is easily viewable and organized by date. You can email the URL to anybody (including yourself) so they can view, or you can share it directly to Facebook and/or Twitter directly from the app.
Cloudee also helps you keep track of what your friends are doing. You can add other Cloudee users as friends and you’ll be able to browse their videos directly on your phone in the Friends section. Additionally, you can go over to the Activity section to see what everyone in your friends list has posted, whether it’s a new video or collection they’ve shared with you or a comment or like on something you uploaded. If you want to watch any of these videos later, when you don’t have internet access, you can download them to your suitcase for offline viewing.
