Just playing around with my iPhone about a year ago. Shot it with the ‘Super 8’ app; cut it and added titles & music with iMovie. Even used iMovie to upload it directly to YouTube from my iPhone. Thanks for watching. Hope you enjoy it.
A few weeks back I downloaded Viddy and played with it a bit. At the time, I tweeted that I thought it was cool with a couple of caveats and that I would follow up with more details. Well, after playing with it a couple of more days, the cons started to outweigh the pros pretty quickly. Given the amount of hype Viddy received and continues to get, I didn’t want to hate on it for a few (what seemed to be) minor bugs so I decided to hold off on writing anything further until a software update or two came out. During the last few weeks though, my opinion of Viddy went from “It’s pretty cool,” to “It kinda sucks.”
If you don’t know what the hell I’m talking about, check out this slideshow for an explanation of what Viddy is and how it works:

Seems nice, don’t it? There’s a sample video of all the filters at the end of this but first, my thoughts on Viddy after a few weeks of real world use.
