YouTube release YouTube Capture

YouTube CaptureYouTube have released their new product YouTube Capture.

This app allows iPhone and iPod Touch users to share video easily and then “upload videos to YouTube, Google+, Facebook and Twitter simultaneously, or share privately with friends and family”.

There is also a nice auto enhance feature that offers “automatic colour correction, stabilisation, trimming and music tracks”.

We think this app will be successful in encouraging users to add content to their YouTube channel.  We are yet to test the app and see how good it’s editing features are, but we expect them not to disappoint.

Check out the YouTube Capture video below to give you a little insite into the  app in action:

Google Reader gets a share button

After forcing us to change the way we use Google Reader in Google’s push towards making us use g+ more, they have made a great decision by giving us back a share option, the share button:

At least now we don’t have to publicly +1 our reader articles just to get them into our g+ stream.  The share button allows you to share directly to your g+ groups and is something which is going to prove a popular choice.  We will be interested to see what peoples reaction are to this.

Google make it easier to share docs

This is a welcome addition to the Google Docs suite.  You are now able to share documents in a few clicks, not that it was really that hard before.  As shown in the screen shot below, there is now a link you can click which will bring up the Sharing settings window.  Here you can simply add people via their names, email addresses or groups.  you can also change permissions for the assigned people too.
