Check out some of the latest additions to our Jolicloud App Center.
Jaycut — A Web-based video editor
After YouTube launched its Video Editor, a neat app with basic editing features, now Jaycut is set to impress with a new version of its online software. Suitable for both beginners and professionals, the service is unintimidating and lets you do really cool stuff: capture video and audio directly from your webcam or microphone, create slow motion, use green screen technology, customize, draw, colorize, among other visual effects.
Pen.io — A simple publishing tool
One of the winners at this years’ LAUNCH conference, Pen.io allows you to quickly publish, share and edit a text page on the Web. All you need to do to create a page on Pen.io is choose a name for the page and include a password for editing. No need to create an account. You can change the title and body of the text really quickly and insert videos into the pages by placing a short code (:video) before the video URL. It is fast and simple, and the focus is on the content.
Cartagr.am — Instagram pics on a map
Cartagr.am is a new app that displays popular public photos from Instagram arranged by location on a world map. You can pan around, search by place name like New York (picture above) Paris or London, or zoom to your current location. Cartagr.am is one of the first applications developed by Bloom, who specialize in bite-size visualization apps. Check out Fizz, another one of Bloom’s ‘visual instruments’, also available in the App Center.
WhatWasThere — Put history in its place!
Ever wondered what your city looked like in the past? WhatWasThere is a great user generated app that lets people upload old photographs of places in the world. Visitors to the site can enter the name of a city, street or crossroad, or explore the map and zoom into locations of interest. Each photo comes with details, and you can switch to Street View to superimpose the photo to the current view of the location. Anyone can upload a photo and contribute to history.
FOCM — Which movie does the object come from?
Ji Lee, the smart creative behind The Bubble Project, Goollery and the Chrome Experiments site just launched Famous Objects in Classic Movies, or FOCM, a fun online game for movie lovers to guess which classic movie a particular object is from. There are over 70 movies to guess from and the site is open for people’s suggestions.
