YouTube Launches “Capture”, An iOS App For Recording & Enhancing Video [Updates]

YouTube has released a new free iOS app called Capture that focuses on recording, enhancing and uploading video as quickly as possible. The app is ready to record from the moment the app is opened, and allows users to make minor edits like colour correction, image stabilisation and adding music from YouTube’s free background tracks.

The second that recording finishes, the YouTube upload process begins with options to customise privacy, sharing and enhancements. Users can trim their movies down to length and there’s even an option for horizontal screen-lock to avoid shooting videos in portrait to avoid what YouTube calls “Vertical Video Syndrome”.

Video quality can be toggled between 480p and 720p, with no 1080p full-HD mode as yet. Existing iPhone or iPod Touch videos can be imported and touched-up using the app, as can iPad videos though the app is designed for the smaller screen. After a quick test video which can be seen below, the experience is ever so slightly reminiscent of the Instagram upload process though the app is made with only content creation in mind.

Uploads don’t require the app to constantly be running, and once minimised they will complete in the background, according to Google. The iOS version is live in the App Store right now, and a post on the YouTube blog reveals that the YouTube team are “working to bring this to Android in the future”.
