Flip cameras get a mobile app

Flip camcorders just got another utility with a new mobile software application that supports sharing from your BlackBerry, iPhone or Android phone--and the new app is free.   At the moment, the app only supports certain model phones within those categories, including the Apple iPhone, iPod touch; Blackberry Curve 8520, Curve 8900, and Bold 9000; Google G1 (T-Mobile) and MyTouch (T-Mobile).  You can find the apps at the Flip Share website or in the app store for those phones.

That means you can shoot and share video from any location where your phone's working, and without a laptop--so if you're sending communicators out in the field to gather video or stills, they can post from events and offsite locations directly, without coming back to the office.  For iPhone users, the app allows you to create video playlists and favorites, and all the apps allow access to your Flip Channel--a private channel where you can share video with other users.  The latter feature means video can be shared from a remote location to colleagues in your office, who can phone in reactions, questions or ideas to the on-site recorder.

Find out more about the the 2nd-generation Flip MinoHD Camcorder with 120-minute capacity or check out all shoot-and-share camcorders on Amazon.
