App of the week: Givit
Devices: iPhone, iPad, Android
What is it? An app for privately sharing video, including large files that cannot be sent by email
How is it of use to journalists? Givit allows you to record or upload a video and send an email to a contact who can then follow the link, watch and download it and comment on it.
You could use the app to record footage showing a news story and send it privately to the newsdesk.
Videos are stored to your Givit account so you can login and retrieve later.
You can also add footage from other cameras and devices by using the Givit desktop app.
