Montaj is a kind of Instagram-like application for videos and it is developed by Demir Gjokaj and Dan Long, a couple of New York-based entrepreneurs. It helps to share and watch videos.
Already apps like Socialcam and Viddy do all these things but the video quality is not so good like Instagram.
Unlike these apps, Montaj forces you to break videos into five-second clips and later these clips are stitched together.
Once you have a bunch of short clips, or the assembled short clips from videos, the app lets you storyboard, select a song, and add a new filter. Or you can say “screw it!,” and shake your phone.
With each shake of your mobile phone, Montaj provides a new song, a new edit, and a new filter, says Gjokaj. If you don’t like a clip order or a song or the clips the app has selected, then it will also allow you to change all that settings.
Montaj also enables you to trim clips, rearrange them, import new clips, change the song, or change the filter. The app does the work and thus you can improve the videos.
Once the video is completed, users can share it via YouTube, and those video links can then be shared through Facebook or Twitter. User can also download it to their camera roll.
Montaj app will be launching on January 22 and it is compatible with devices that run iOS 6. The startup is also working on an Android version and it is expected to launch in the second quarter.
