App of the Week: Vidburn
Vidburn 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.
