There’s been a rise in apps that are looking to be the “Instagram for music”, but what about the “Vine for music”?
That’s the basic concept of Sympler, a new iOS app that lets users remix video clips and set them to music. Users can choose music from their iTunes library and queue up six video clips from their photo library, or video can be recorded straight from the app. The video clips are tapped like an MPC and recorded into a 20 second clip. Sympler would be a lot more fun if YouTube clips could be imported and remixed, but then we would venture into copyright infringement territory.
There’s a remix option that allows other users to remix your creations, potentially leading to many great spin-offs.
Videos can be shared on other platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. However, if you choose to share to Instagram, Sympler will save the video to your device so you can upload it yourself. Instagram will make you cut down the video by five seconds and will reformat the size.
Here’s a video overview of the features:
