The app that makes it easy to create, share and subscribe to personalized video channels. Add your favorite videos from across the web with just one tap.

People are always looking for new ways to express themselves, especially online, and Rockpack provides a unique way for users to do so.

Like it.  A Flipboard for video?  Perhaps.

Lists and Image Curation Comes To Instagram with InstaFeed



Robin Good's insight:



Instafeed is a iOS app which allows you to create custom lists of Instagram users and to re-post easily (with auto-credit) great images from other Instagram users to your own account.


Instafeed offers a growing set of pre-packaged feeds, on popular topics like fashion, pets and food, to which you can add your own curated set of custom feeds in which you decide who are your specific Instagram sources.


I would have loved to see a feed creation option based on hashtags rather than just on Instagram people, as it is very rare to find Instagram authors that post sistematically on a specific topic / theme / style.


Usability-wise I wasted a lot of time trying to understand how to watch any existing feed. Beyond that there are only a couple of extra commands only. But for me the need to double tap on the home page feed to view it was a frustrating barrier. I'd click each time only to be brought into seeing the list of sources for that channel. Other than this InstaFeed is as easy as sneezing.


The option to repost (with credit) Instagram pics you find in InstaFeed channels directly to your Instagram account is invaluable as it opens for the first time the opportunity for "curating" other people images on Instagram.


Given the huge quantity of visual material being created daily on Instagram, it is only going to be a matter of time before you will start seeing many other new services attempt to offer tools to more easily find, pick, group and republish relevant Instagram (or for that matter Flickr, Picasa, etc.) images to a theme or topic channel.


Free to use.

 You can repost any snaps you like directly to Instagram, which is a nice touch, and you can post comments too.

Clip Anything from the Web and Organize Into Collections with Memit (Web + iOS)

Robin Good's insight:



Memit is a content curation app that allows you to clip any web page (as is) text, image or video available online and to save it inside a collection.


Collections can be set to be private or public, and you can invite as many other people as you want to collaborate and contribute to it.


Individual items clipped can be commented, tagged and can be shared on your preferred social media channels. You can follow other Memit users and see their stream of clipped items just like similar tools do.


Each user gets a Profile Page showcasing his work and publicly saved items.


My comments: Good flexible clipper allows easy grabbing of what you are interested in and easy storing into your categories and tags. Good actegorization functions. Good for collaborative use around the collection of texts, excerpts or video clips. Not so great at collection display (only a linear, vertical list format is avaiable for now), publishing or exporting (no embed feature).


P.S.: If you have backed up your Clipboard.com collections, you can import them directly into Memit.



Free to use.

Curate Your Personal Clips Into a Shareable Video Mashup with Ptch

Robin Good: Ptch is a new free iOS app that allows you to "curate" your favorite pics and clips from your own library and social stream into an audio-video mashup that you can share with anyone.


From Mashable: "Ptchis an app for iPhones and iPads that lets users combine photos and video clips into a one-minute or less “Ptch” that can be shared instantly.


Users can add styles and music to a Ptch, and friends can “reptch” or edit videos by adding their own media.


Launched in July, Ptch takes the concept of Instagram to another level by letting users mash their media together with tone and expression. The app is designed to capture users’ experiences in real-time, and also let friends mix in media of their own experiences.


...


Creating a Ptch is simple – select your favorite photos and video clips, choose a style (original, matte, epic, soho, vivid, fillmore, kane or kaskade) to make your Ptch more powerful and then pick a song from the app’s music list. Users can also create titles for their photos.


Once the Ptch is done, press play and share it on your stream or with friends via email, Facebook and Twitter. You can also make your Ptches private if you don’t want to share them.
