YouTube is the world’s largest video repository but, while it is in a league of its own, the Google-owned service hasn’t embraced the short clip style of Instagram, Vine and other popular video apps.
Bloop It is an app that is aiming to fill that void by letting users cut YouTube videos down to 20 seconds or less, and share them across existing social networks and its own iOS app. The process is simple, and Bloop It connects to Facebook and Twitter, and lets you email and copy links too.
So if you’re looking for a way to share specific clips (without using YouTube’s time stamp), mess about with videos or discover new short content, Bloop It is worth considering. The app is for iOS only, but an Android version is due to arrive in the next few weeks.
