Snipper is a BlackBerry smartphone app that makes it easy to share short video clips with friends, family and whoever. The app lets you create a private broadcast channel to share with select people or you can broadcast publicly. Snipper is also a fun way to browse what other people are sharing and features celebrities, artists and pundits. You can also broadcast the videos you take on Twitter and Facebook. Check out the free app and let us know what you think.
Features of the app include:
Share: You decide who gets to see your film. If it’s just for family and friends then you can create your own private channels, and invite them to join by sending them a secure code via SMS. Only they will receive any films you send to that specific channel. You can also share your film with anyone on Snipper who wants to see what you’re sharing – that’s your own public channel, open to all. These public channels can be browsed through in the Snipper Channels area.
See: Get invited to a private channel and see what your family and friends are up to. Or follow the public channels of celebrities, artists and thinkers. Just pick a public channel that you are interested in and click on the subscribe button. From then on you’ll receive films from that channel. You don’t have to search and download these films – they are pushed directly into your Films list. Tap to see – without streaming interruption – and then share in their moment by responding via a comment.
Channels - The reality of life is that you have various identities – parent, sibling, friend, colleague. Snipper allows you to share each of these lives differently – all from one user account. That’s the benefit of being able to create numerous broadcast channels each for a specific audience.
Website Mirror – Creating a Snipper account means you gain access to an online ‘mirror’ of your mobile app. Whereas your Films list only contains the last 25 films sent to you, your online account allows you to retrieve all your incoming films, and manage your channels and the films you have broadcasted. It’s the ideal complement to your mobile world.
