The world of social video is about to get even wider, thanks to MyQuikVid.
The video uploading and sharing app lets users push interesting, funny, newsworthy or inspiring content directly to all their social media accounts at once. Developed by startup Wynntech Apps, MyQuikVid is available here.
“MyQuikVid is a simple way for anyone to capture, edit, produce and share beautiful videos with their family, friends or the entire world — no matter what social media platform they each use,” says Darrin Wynn, founder of Wynntech Apps. “The app connects to the most popular social media and video platforms, including Facebook and YouTube, eliminating the hassle of opening each one independently and navigating through their uploading and sharing screens. MyQuikVid also provides all the editing and production tools one would expect from a video sharing app. Our plan is to continue making the app better and better as we receive feedback from early adopters of MyQuikVid.”
Social video has been on an exponential growth curve in recent years, thanks to faster broadband and more sophisticated devices that capture HD video with ease. According to Brandwatch, Facebook’s 500 million users collectively accounted for 8 billion daily video views in 2016. Upstart Snapchat, meanwhile, boasted 6 billion video views each day across its entire user community. The average U.S. adult spent over an hour each day watching videos on their devices last year. Finally, 78% of people watched online videos every week, and more than half watched every day. All signs point to those numbers going even higher in 2017.
MyQuikVid lets users record a new video directly from the app or choose an existing video from the phone’s gallery. Next, users have the option to trim the video, add a watermark or add text. After giving their edited video a title and brief description, users can share their finished production to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram with just a single tap. MyQuikVid’s YouTube channel features a brief demonstration of these core features.
Special editing effects like slow motion are currently in the works. In addition, an iOS version of MyQuikVid will launch soon.
