Vhoto: Never Miss a Moment

We’ve learned a lot by processing more than a million iPhone videos from dedicated users since we soft launched in May. As a result, our app is fine-tuned to provide the best user experience possible.

Who?

Vhoto for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch (free)

What?

Shoot a video (or choose one already shot) and Vhoto quickly gets to work, immediately presenting a selection of high-res photos of the best moments that can be saved or shared. Vhoto also creates short video highlights or ‘Clips’ to easily share the most important parts of the video. Vhoto is intelligent, understanding what pictures the user likes and helping find the best ones. It’s perfect for selfies, group shots, action, the kids or pets. Vhoto helps make sure precious moments are never missed.

Why?

  •     Ever missed the perfect shot? – At parties, weddings, sporting events or with the family, photos are often taken a few seconds before or after the right moment.. Vhoto lets users video the action and then select that perfect shot afterwards. The ‘Time Shift’ feature moves the shot backwards or forwards in time for perfect fine-tuning.
  •     High Resolution– Vhoto delivers great quality, particularly for an iPhone 5 or later which provides stunning pictures in a resolution of up to 1080p.
  •     Smart Camera – Users can choose to work with their own videos but if they use their iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch camera, Vhoto will do an even better job of zeroing in on magic moments. There is even a night mode feature that allows recording in near darkness without a flash.
  •     Add Some Effects – Perfect shot delivered, now with awesome filters built-in editing tools to enhance the look. Vhoto has 7 different editing functions and 20 different filters to choose from.
  •     Video is Covered Too – Don’t worry! With the ‘Clip’ feature, Vhoto selects up to 6 seconds from video as a highlight – ideal for sharing great moments socially.
