As soon as you lift your finger the recording stops and will continue recording when you press down again. This allows you to “edit” your video in real-time by linking short clips together to create your 11 second masterpiece.

When a recording is completed an instant preview is shown before the video can be shared with a users App.net followers. Users can choose to add a message to the post and also tag their location if they choose.
