PIP for iPhone


Have you ever seen a reaction video on YouTube? Often they are created in PIP (picture in picture) format. If you have ever wanted to record a short video in the same format Twicer is the free iOS app that can help you with that. 

 You can either record a new video with the front and back cameras or you can use a video from your camera roll and record commentary or reactions  to the video using the front camera. The app can only record videos up to one minute long, there is not an in-app purchase available yet that allows for longer recording. The app adds a watermark at the bottom right of your video. All videos are compressed before being saved, with no significant loss in video quality.

Twicer will save your videos to your camera roll but it is also a video sharing platform, so it will upload any videos you create to it’s own service. You will have to create an account, either using Facebook or your email to save your final video to your camera roll.

Launch the app and go through the very brief tutorial that will teach you how to use it. It will also show you what editing features it has to offer. The main video is recorded first. If you want to use a video from your camera roll, tap the photos button to select it.

Once you are done recording the first-main video, Twicer switches to recording with the front facing camera. You can adjust the volume of each video and add a caption to is as well. Once you have finished recording, tap “Next”, sign up to Twicer, and then wait for the video to upload and save to your camera roll.

This app is available in the App store under Twicer. 


This app can be so much fun!
