We always are trying to share the best pictures, gifs, or video clips with our friends and family. When in a group chat amongst friends, there are times where you try to post the best comment. However, there are also times where you are thinking about a clip from a tv show or movie, but have no way to share that. Well, it turns out that there is actually a way to do so. Enter Clippit.
Clippit is an app that allows users to take clips from their favorite shows, and post or share them to Facebook or Twitter. Clippit pulls from various TV networks like ESPN, ABC, NBC, and more, and allow you clip portions from those shows or movies.
Before being able to send your various clips to friends, you must sign up for an account. Currently, the only two options are for Facebook or Twitter, so when you select one of the two, you will be directed to sign in with your appropriate account. Then you will be prompted to create a username for Clippit, and you’re off to the races. Once you’ve signed up, you can choose from six different entertainment genres, such as Drama or Sports. From there, you will be presented your main feed.
Your main feed shows off some of the most popular, and most recent clips that have been created and posted. With each individual clip, there’s a share option, upvote or downvote, and a bar at the bottom with some information about the clip. Unlike videos on Facebook or Twitter, the clips within Clippit won’t automatically start playing, so you don’t have to worry about eating up all of your data unless you choose to. You’ll be able to scroll along the timeline until you find something you want to see.
Now if you want to create your own clip, head over to the Scissors tab at the top of Clippit. Once you’re in this tab, there are a bunch of different shows that you have to choose from. These are all shows that are playing live on television right now. So you can’t really pick and choose shows that are not currently being televised, to get clips from.
So let’s say you’re trying to find the perfect clip, but aren’t having any luck. Turns out, there’s a search function that allows you to search for previously created clips from whatever show or movie you want. A simple search for ‘Happy Gilmore’ pulls up a whole list of different clips that have been tagged or recognized as from that movie.
Regardless of that, there is a nice little feature that allows you to go back and view previously made clips. The Timeline tab at the top, will take you to a section that has a few different options. The Top Clips section has the following options:
Best of What You Following
Now, you can view these clips to your heart’s content, so if you’re trying to find a specific clip, keep scrolling along until you find the perfect one. The next section has different genre’s for you to look through when finding the best clip. Clippit really has a lot of options available, if this sort of thing floats your boat.
