Givit is a simple but versatile video editor available exclusively for iOS that aspires to the noble goal of bringing this kind of tool to users without settling for being a vague Instagram video clone with a few effects or intimidating them in the way iMovie or Final Cut can.
The app is not bad at all, especially considering that it is free, with no limits on the number of clips we can use or their duration and with various effects and options to enhance and share our creations through Facebook, YouTube or Twitter. But that’s not why it’s in the news today. Givit is also the first app with a direct link from Google Glass to download videos recorded with Google glasses on our iPhone and edit them on the spot.
Google Glass still has no release date and it’s still not entirely clear what its final impact will be on the general public but what everyone seems to agree on is that the first-person video recording is one of its most obvious and immediate features so of course the Givit guys have a potential breakthrough there.
So you know, if by any chance one of you has your Google Glass Explorer Edition at hand, don’t hesitate to visit this link to link the app to your Google account so you can start using it at least in this experimental phase. In the future, the company hopes to be able to use the touch control on the side of the glasses and its screen to allow some kind of basic editing directly on our eye, but for the moment the iPhone is still mandatory.
