This is pretty cool, and kind of a video-sharing-on-Facebook gamechanger.
One or more of your friends probably has a video-capable iPhone. And when you get together, little tidbits of information probably trickle out to the social web, all telling a different version of the same story. But Flixlab, a truly social app, provides a neat little service for the video aspect of social event cataloging.
You and friends with iPhones might all upload video to Facebook after something memorable, fun or just done as a group occurs. But with Flixlab, you can combine videos to create a single record of the event. While this would be excellent for things like weddings (social matrimony!) or barbeques, it’s even nice to have on just a night out.
On their About page, Flixlab lays out the reasoning behind a social video collaboration app:
That’s why we created Flixlab. We wanted to make it easy and painless for people to create great movies, exchange video clips and pictures, and share with their friends and family right on their phones. No learning new tools, no hours lost editing, and no experience needed—Flixlab lets anyone automatically and instantly create and share engaging movies in just a few taps. Like magic.
So our brilliant, delightfully nerdy, multiple patent-holding team of Ph.D’s and passionate technology and product experts invested serious time and brainpower to do the hard science required to build what we’ve created: a revolutionary new social video platform to be debuted on iPhones and iPod touches.Flixlab removes the burden from video editing making it fun, fast, and easy to combine video clips and pictures with great themes, rockin’ music, and text slides. Even better, the movies created with Flixlab can be shared with friends and family on Facebook, or on YouTube, Twitter, or email.
The interface is simple and seems to lend itself to quick and easy collaboration. Some screenshots, first of the start screen:
From there, you can edit in straight in your phone with some effects…
And then share it straight to Facebook:
