ABOUT-
The KinKast App is the easiest way to privately share video clips. Record a moment and share it with two taps!
• No waiting (video uploads in the background)
• Privately share with friends (they receive a link with no login required)
• Safely back-up your memories on KinKast servers
• Can also post to Facebook

You can also access your private video library at KinKast.com. Online, you can watch, share, download and delete videos. Plus, upload videos from other cameras.

Chris’s Thoughts-

I was given the opportunity to review the KinKast app for the iPhone. It is a very simple app to use that complements the built in video recording capabilities. The main focus of the application and the service behind it is to easily and privately share your video clips with only the people you want to see them. Once you shoot a video, either directly through the application (easiest) or by importing a video you have already recorded in your camera roll, you then have the ability to choose exactly who will see the video. You still have the ability to easily share your videos through Facebook or Youtube, but there are often videos that you only want specific people to see and this is a great way to be able to do this.

Other then the core purpose of privacy, there are a lot of cool features that I was really impressed with:

  1. Easy Upload – When you choose to upload your videos, it uploads in the background, so you don’t have to wait until the upload is complete to do something else or record another video.
  2. Smart data preserving features – There is a small feature on the app that allows you to only upload videos when you are connected to a WIFI signal. I don’t subscribe to a data plan currently because the cost is typically very high and because I have WIFI in most places that I need to have data access. Because of this setting, I can be sure that I am not incurring extra fees and will start uploading automatically as soon as a WIFI connection is made.
  3. Peace of Mind – KinKast safely backs-up your videos online, so if something happens to your phone and you don’t sync often to your computer you can have the peace of mind to know that  you won’t lose your videos.

The app itself is free, and you 30 days of free online storage for each video with the free membership. When you upgrade to the premium membership you get unlimited storage and there is no limit to the amount of time a video  can be hosted.

I think the KinKast Video sharing app is very well built, well designed and a great tool to people who use the video capabilities of their iPhones and would suggest that everyone download and give it a try today.

Here is a short video demonstration and a few screenshots I took of the app while I was using it.
