Despite being a sub-optimal experience, iPad users still rely on its virtual keyboard for most of their daily communications. A new App named Vittle from Qrayon, launching worldwide today, seeks to change that. Vittle lets users record short videos using their photos, handwriting, and voice that can be securely shared, or posted online for the whole world.
Vittle turns an iPad into a recordable whiteboard, where everything a user draws and says is instantly captured in a video file. The App produces 720p HD video files that the user owns, and does not tie them to a proprietary online service. Users can choose to share their videos on services such as YouTube or Vimeo. Videos can be saved or uploaded immediately after recording. Users can also post their videos to their secure company servers, or email them directly.
Vittle is built on Qrayon's proprietary Inkflow Engine. Its ultra-smooth scalable ink can be moved and re-sized, and stays sharp at multiple zoom levels, providing for a large virtual writing surface. Users can drop in photos and move them around the screen or annotate them, all while narrating their message.
The Full Edition adds many additional features, including:
* Support for multiple projects, each with multiple pages and scenes
* A scene editor, which allows users to reorder and delete scenes
* Unlimited recording length - hours and hours if needed
* A fully customizable color palette, pen opacity and width settings
* PDF import: Including importing PDF decks from Keynote or PowerPoint
* A camera lock tool that allows users to smoothly pan the recorded view
* A laser pointer tool
* And more
"Video is poised to become a dominant medium of everyday communication. Capturing key ideas in a video can actually be easier and more natural than typing up another long email. People find videos far more engaging than text alone. With our ever-shrinking attention spans, video is a critical tool to get your points across quickly, and to spread your ideas far and wide. Vittle now makes this as easy as writing on a piece of paper," said Chen Lim, CEO of Qrayon.
The Full Edition of Vittle will have an introductory launch price of $8.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies), and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Productivity category. A Free Edition of Vittle is available for users to try out before upgrading. The Free Edition can record video segments up to one minute long, and comes with 4 standard marker colors, an eraser, the select/re-size tool, plus the ability to insert up to 3 photos at a time.
