Vidburn iconVidburn is the ideal way to capture and share your most creative, silly and provocative moments without leaving a digital trace. Recently featured in Gizmodo and Business Insider, Vidburn is a free app that allows you to flex your creative muscle, through an ephemeral recording on your iPhone.

When first released, Vidburn was pegged the ‘Snapchat for video’ (though Snapchat itself released a video function right around the time Vidburn launched). It’s simple to use and loads of fun; you can record up to a 5 second video and share with friends via SMS, or by selecting a recipient off your contact list that already has the app. As soon as your friend watches your creation, the video clip will self-destruct.

Whether you’re imitating a sloth, capturing an awkward conversation, or just want to send something a little racy, Vidburn is a fun way to record and share life’s most colorful moments.

    I’m quiet surprised to see that somebody actually made a camera overlay with custom graphics/controls!
    For a very long time there was no way to do this with Corona.

    Very neat!

    Awesome! I have been wanting to capture small videos in one of my games – how did they do that with Corona? Or do we need Enterprise for that?

    VidBurn is a fantastic app and deserved the app of the week title. Would also love to know how the dev got the overlay to show over the video.

    Also many thanks for giving Word Pop Free an honourable mention. This was our first game, so it’s nice to see that it is liked by Corona!

    David/Inna – it seems that there’s a reasonable scope for these ‘promo’ articles to actually reveal some information of merit.

    This is the second such app in recent weeks that other devs would like to know further info on (Fun Run multiplayer). Rather then just shameless plugs and backslapping, let’s make these articles serve a greater purpose.

    The guys breakdown of ShaqDown in the forums is an excellent piece if you’re looking for inspiration.

    Hey Chris – Thanks for checking out Vidburn’s review. Our App of the Week reviews are meant to be general posts on gameplay, mechanics, creative elements of the app/game, rankings and more. We don’t delve into the technical aspects of the app, because more often than not, we don’t have that information available.

    That being said, we invite App of the Week winners, and other notable app developers, to join us on Corona Geek. This gives developers the opportunity to discuss their work in detail, and offers community members a chance to ask some hard-hitting questions.

    We also encourage everyone to post any questions about the App of the Week in the comments section of the review. We always alert the developer to comments/questions so that they can provide more insight on their work, if they choose to do so.

    Thanks,
    Inna
