Kamcord, the SDK that lets iOS developers offer gameplay recording and sharing functionality, is today launching a redesigned community iOS app while announcing some impressive new milestones for the service.
Kamcord’s Eric Edelman tells me the company is doing “greater than 1% of YouTube’s upload volume now,” which means it’s uploading more than 1 hour of gameplay videos every minute. In total the platform is now at 14 million videos uploaded by users accounting for a 4x growth in share rate and up 9M videos since May. It’s also now in over 340+ mobile games, up from 200 mobile games in February when it launched official integration for Unreal Engine developers on both iOS and Android.
The huge increase in recent months comes as it attracts some big name app publishers. That includes popular casual games like My Talking Tom that saw users share over 1 million videos in its first week using Kamcord. Others games experienced high sharing rates during live events like the World Cup such as Stickman Soccer 2014. “What was cool about that game is that we saw gamers playing simultaneous to real-time events, similar to how Twitter users react. For example, someone posted a video “How the USA-Belgium game should have gone,” Edelman tells me. That’s one of the reasons the company is today launching a redesigned iOS community app that allows users to be more social with sharing and following other users.
Rather than just being able to watch videos uploaded by users from the various apps Kamcord is in, the updated community app now has everything it needs to be a full-fledged social network of its own: profile creation, commenting, following, liking, and a new UI that the company designed to be more Twitter-like.
