    I feel like this is doomed to be sherlocked, like OpenFeint.

    I'm curious - with the sandboxed nature of iOS, especially for 3rd party apps, how does an app like this even work? Or does it require a jailbroken device?

    Clarifying the confusion

    Last I heard, they were live in over 115 games. Kamcord is an SDK. So developers integrate the SDK into their game which allows users to share the gameplay that's recorded.

    I guess I'm either confused or late to the game. Besides commercial uses ("Here's a walk through of how to beat King Koopa") what is the point of recording yourself playing a video game?
