Apple's Clips app updates with camcorder filter, new graphics & sharing options

in iPhone edited April 2019
Apple on Tuesday updated Clips -- its Snapchat-like iOS video recorder -- with a new camcorder filter, plus extra posters, stickers, Live Titles, and sharing options.

Added share extensions let users send projects via email or AirDrop, upload to cloud storage, or alternately save them using the native iOS Files app. ClassKit compatibility means students can share video work by way of the Schoolwork app for iPads.

The eight new posters include solid backgrounds, an animated globe, and "vintage" designs, among them a blue camcorder screen to match the new filter. The extra stickers have 8-bit and 3D themes.

Music can now be imported from GarageBand and other music creation tools, and projects can be duplicated and renamed for creating alternate versions.

Clips is a free download and runs on iPhones and iPads with iOS 11.1 or later.

Clips was first launched in April 2017. It was one of Apple's first 64-bit only apps, preventing it from running on devices like the iPhone 5. Apple began requiring 64-bit compatibility later that year with iOS 11.

In fact the company had already been discouraging 32-bit apps in iOS 10, at first saying they could slow down devices, then outright warning people that they wouldn't work in a future iOS update.

    The Have enjoyed this sleeper app since it first came out. Since it is not a default app it exists under the radar until you discover and download it. It is a fun, creative, whimsical app that allows one to visually express thoughts and ideas. Apple stores offer Clips classes as part of their app labs for teachers and students. I have enjoyed the two open sessions for the general public. An app to have fun with, experiment and create with. I’am a senior being a kid at heart using this app.
