Free BlackBerry Video Applications – What Do You Use?

10 Comments

As more people get on Twitter and Facebook, we seem to have a fascination with sharing our every detail with the world around us.  Sure, pictures are good, but video is so much more fun (at least for those with big data plans).  For those of you who are interested in living your life in front of a camera and have OS 4.5, we have four streaming/sharing video applications for you to check out.  Do you use any of these?  Is there a free (or paid) BlackBerry video application that we left out?  Hit us up in the comments so we can try ‘em out.

Qik – a live streaming video application for BlackBerry devices that has integration with Twitter.  They are currently working on direct integration of Facebook.

ITookThisOnMyPhone – allows you to take pictures and videos and upload them automatically or manually to their server or to photo and video sites such as Flickr, Picasa and YouTube.  Then you can catch embed codes and post them to your favorite places.

Next2Friends -Next2Friends seems to be a blend of Qik and ITookThisOnMyPhone.  Here you can stream video and upload pictures automatically.  Next2Friends also allows you to get embed codes to place your videos on your Facebook profile, blog or other location.  Additionally, they add Ask where you take a picture, add a question and send it to a friend for their opinion.

12Seconds.tv – this is a bit different as it is not quite an application but a place where you can email your videos, similar to the way Twitpic works with photos.  After sending the upload, you can have 12Seconds.tv post your video automatically to Twitter, Facebook and FriendFeed.  12Seconds.tv also has direct integration to TweetDeck to make it really easy to upload a video from your computer. Note: If you use Sprint, use your @sprint.blackberry.net email address to send videos to 12Seconds.tv.

iTookThisOnMyPhone gets geotagging update

Comments

ITTOMP, the lovingly-anacronymed picture-sharing service, announced an update at WES, including geotagging support. Although not new, it was news to me that the service supports video sharing too, which is pretty awesome considering how impressed with Qik I was. Geotagging is getting increasingly popular, with whole apps like GPSed revolving around it, and even becoming integrated into the BlackBerry 9000. You can nab the latest version of iTookThisOnMyPhone for free right over here.

iTookThisOnMyPhone logoIf you’re a budding photographer you might want to check out iTookThisOnMyPhone. Their free service automatically uploads any pictures or videos you take to their servers, and allows you to describe and manage them online, leaving your BlackBerry Pearl or Curve’s memory free for other uses. You can can make photos public, or create user groups to only allow certain visitors access. They recently joined the ISV Alliance, so hopefully we can see some new features (ordering prints, maybe?) at WES this year.

New photo sharing service joins ISV Alliance

Comments

iTTOMPSome bold souls have taken the iWhatever moniker to a new extreme with iTookThisOnMyPhone, a free photo-sharing service recently announced as a member of the BlackBerry Independent Software Vendors Alliance. The gist of the program is anyone on a major U.S. carrier can have the photos they snap with their BlackBerry Pearl or Curve automatically uploaded to iTTOMP’s web service, letting you share your pictures immediately and leaving the memory on your BlackBerry for other things. There’s no limit to how many pictures you can upload, but you better believe that you’ll be seeing it on your bill if you’re on anything short of an unlimited data plan. iTTOMP seems handy for the folks who take a lot of pictures, but I think I’d stick with the new Facebook photo sharing for now. Thanks for the heads up, Ronen!
