Google announced today a new iOS app called YouTube Capture that lets users film and upload a video in as few as three clicks. Users can post their videos simultaneously to YouTube, Google+, Facebook, and Twitter, or upload them privately.
Advanced features let users perform color correction and stabilization, edit the video length, and even add music. YouTube Capture is ready to record as soon as you open it. When you’re done filming, write a caption, select which networks you want to share to, and hit Share.
When YouTube introduced its first homegrown app for iOS this year, there was no option for uploading videos to the site, observes C/Net. At the time that the team expected users would upload videos using the embedded YouTube upload option in iOS. But the latest desktop softwares didn’t include YouTube at all — instead, users can share videos natively to Vimeo.
So YouTube decided to take control of its own destiny with YouTube Capture. You can download the app here starting today. It’s currently only available for iPhone and iPod touch — an Android version is set to launch “in the future”.
