Apple Clips: Get Started with These Quick Tips

What It's Like to Use Apple's New iPhone Camera App

What It's Like to Use Apple's New iPhone Camera App

Clips makes it relatively easy to capture, import, and edit video or photos and add special effects such as stickers or filters. The Clips app allows you to "record" a photo in order to insert it into your video.

Clips requires iOS 10.3 update and is compatible with the iPhone 5s and newer, the iPad mini 2 and newer, iPad Air, iPad Pro, the just announced 9.7-inch iPad, and the 6th generation iPod touch-in other words, you need a 64-bit capable iOS device. The app, which was revealed a couple of weeks ago when the company introduced the RED iPhone 7 models, is now available for free on the App Store.

Apple Clips is a fun and quick way for you to create videos that are expressive on their iPhones and iPad. Thankfully, you can jump in and edit those captions if you need to.

Aside from that, Clips looks to do some, but not all, of what Snapchat and Instagram offer. One of its best features is the way it can pick out the highlights from longer scenes, though you can also trim clips manually if you want to take more control.

The aspect which makes Clips different from other apps is its Live Titles feature.

Clips is now available in the Apple App Store. Either way, the titans of tech want you to record a snippet of it. It's a fun and simple video editing app - out today! - that utilises the absurd amount of power on modern smartphones well.

S Korea test fires 800km-range missile
The North's latest missile launch also came during annual military drills between the United States and South Korea. Since taking office, Trump has left open the possibility of military action against North Korea.

You can add captions to your videos - and it's extremely easy. I've made Clips videos of my cat (of course), a bowl of pho, a recent vacation, and California-esque things I've done in a single day.

Once your masterpiece is finished, it's time to share it. Clips uses facial recognition to figure out who's in your video and then suggests that you use iMessage to send your video to those friends, which is really cool.

The tools that you're likely to want most often, like audio mute, are kept front and center, and you can stitch several clips together if you want. Have a look at our hands-on video walkthrough as we step through Clips' main features.

Clips basically lets you add some cool effects, filters, text, banners, stickers, emoji and more to your photos and images easily. I'd like it if you chose to follow me on Twitter so I can let you know when fresh items are published here first on Computerworld. Since the app is already cribbing - the comic-book filter feels very similar to last year's hot photo app, Prisma - it would be nice if Apple took a page out of Snapchat's book, and added a doodle tool to let users draw directly onto their content.

The Good The most handy thing about Clips is the "Live Tiles" feature. It typically contains app icons and shortcuts for specific functions within apps, such as "Save to Dropbox". If you release the button just after your video along with your voice is recorded, Clips will only display the text that has been decoded till then and not the complete sentence, because it did not get enough time to complete the task.

No Clips Stories; no ephemeral messaging; no new usernames to secure or QR codes to share.
