If you need more than 6-second videos, maybe Viddy is for you. Viddy is a simple way to capture, create, and share 30-second videos and easily share them on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and Tumblr. You can also share on the Viddy site and keep videos either public or private.
Viddy looks different on Apple and Android devices, so here is information on getting started in both.
