Dubdub storytelling app wants you to make a big impact in 90 seconds

Video editing is a big project — but a new app aims to change that. Dubdub, an iOS video editor released today on the App Store, turns the big job of editing videos into something much smaller with simple mobile tools for creating 90-second videos.

Dubdub allows users to quickly piece together 90-second video clips — think Twitter’s 140-character limit, but for videos. The short size, of course, helps the overall goal of making video editing simpler, but the size is also ideal for sharing on social media, since it’s often the quick tutorials, mini movies, reviews, and other short clips that see the most response.

Dubdub is an all-mobile platform, designed for bloggers, social media influencers, and everyday consumers. Video can be cut up in segments, merged with separate clips, and easily reordered. Turning the phone to landscape mode, you can shoot a new video. A music library gives users access to music that’s free and legal to use, even commercially, or users can add their own voiceovers. The videos can also be merged with text and still images.

Along with the basic edits and access to the music library, shots can be automatically synchronized with the music. Using iPhone’s time-lapse or slow-mo camera functions, Dubdub can piece their clips together to create things like the sped-up cooking tutorials that are so popular on Facebook.

The 90-second dubs can be shared on several social media outlets, without ever leaving the app. Within it, you can discover “dubs” made by other users.

“Creating quality video content can be intimidating and costly. The easy-to-use system we’ve created will empower bloggers to harness the influence of video to get noticed in today’s saturated market, and give them a platform to be seen by more fans and potential sponsors,” said Dubdub President and CEO, Zbigniew Barwicz.

Dubdub is now available on the iTunes store as a free download. Like, Flipagram, GoPro’s Quik, and short-video pioneer, Vine, Dubdub is just the latest in apps designed to quickly create storytelling clips that are easy to consume on social media.

You can finally move your WhatsApp chats from Android to iOS
WhatsApp and Telegram app icons.

Moving WhatsApp chats from Android to iOS has been a painful task for years. But not anymore, as Apple and WhatsApp have made the process a whole lot easier. Starting today, Apple is adding a feature that allows you to move chats between the two platforms. The feature is a part of Apple’s existing “Move to iOS” Android application. It’s worth noting that the feature is currently available for beta users only, so non-beta users might have to wait for a week or two as it's rolled out in phases.

This is a big move since 2 million people use WhatsApp and, until now, there wasn’t an official method to move conversations between Android and iOS. There have been third-party solutions here and there, but nothing officially backed by Apple or WhatsApp. With the feature becoming available, users will be able to move their chats swiftly from Android to iOS.

Twitter lets iOS users turn their video recording into a GIF
Twitter logo.

We've been waiting forever to get an "Edit" button, but Twitter applied a new feature that's just as good. On Tuesday, it gave iOS users the ability to record GIFs straight from the in-app camera.

Recording GIFs directly on Twitter saves minutes of your time trying to convert a long prerecorded video from your phone's album on other GIF platforms like GIPHY. You simply press new tweet, tap the camera icon, set it into GIF mode if it's not there already, and press and hold the record button. Then you can set the GIF to play in a loop similar to Instagram's Boomerang, or have it play from the beginning.
