Flip Video to release Android app

Flip Video–makers of those pocketable little video recorders–announced Flipshare Mobile apps for Android and other mobile platforms (to go with the iPhone app they already have out).

New software for the camcorders lets users share videos and store them in the cloud, while the mobile app allows users to access videos previously uploaded to that cloud storage as well as videos others have shared with them.

The Android app is free and, oddly, only officially supported for the G1 and Magic.

What do you think, with a camcorder built into Android phones and access to YouTube, will there really be much call for this app?

    agreed… seems pointless with YouTube, which is still a much more established video service and part of Google. it never hurts to have options though

    I actually really like this idea, it encourages you to stick your video recorder in your bag, to film at a better quality than your phone and then still be able to show your vids to your friends if you ever want to.
