Apple today updated its Clips social video creation app for the first time, introducing some minor feature tweaks and improvements.

When using Live Titles, which is designed to allow users to add captions to videos via voice transcription, there's now an option to edit the title by tapping on it.


Clips has also gained a new feature that makes it easier to share content with people who have multiple messaging addresses, suggesting the most frequently used address from the list. A full list of changes is below:
What's New
- Tap on Live Title text while playing or paused to edit it
- When sharing to a contact with multiple messaging addresses, Clips suggests the address used most frequently
- Improved stability and reliability when recording video clips and sharing videos that contain certain posters
Introduced back in early April, Clips is an app that aims to make it easy to create short videos that can be shared via Messages and social networking apps like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.


Clips lets users combine several video clips and photos with voice-based titles, music filters, and graphics to create enhanced videos that are up to an hour in length.

Clips can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

I may be too old but I feel this whole emoji/selfie/watch me drink a latte thing is getting out of hand.
Congratulations, you're old. It's the same, and has been, in every age - there's a crap-ton of media and only a small percentage is really worthwhile. And a decade or more from now, people will only remember the good bits, and complain that nothing on holo-smello-vision is as good as Instagram used to be. There are, indeed, an awful lot of "watch me drink a latte" videos out there that deserve to sink into obscurity. Yet out of that pool, there will be some brilliant bits. I have no doubt that some folks will do / are doing some really cool things with "Clips". But it's talent and novel ideas that will make those bits worthwhile, not the tool/medium used.

We'll put. We sneer at wifi toasters. Our ancestors sneered at toasters. As if it is so difficult to make toast that you need a special appliance!

And positively no F's were given. Not even the obvious target demo cares about this app.

Indeed,..only helping to further the entitled look at ME generation! And no your not old, your logical. I rolled my eyes in seeing this app.

I think they need to do some UI work pronto. I tried Clips and the video/audio features are good but it's very hard to navigate the interface.

No, this is different and obviously built for the social media type of shares, for little facebook, IG, twitter shares. Colorful, fun, text heavy, square format. You can have 2 different apps that have 2 different ways to create something.
