⭐️ The best VHS app just got better: you can import videos! ⭐️

It's 1984, and you've got a camcorder! It'll look that way when you record and send old, messed up-looking videos to friends. They'll swear you built a time machine: "OMG, how'd you shoot that?"

With VHS Camcorder, you'll make home movies that look and sound like video tapes pulled out of storage after 30 years. You can change the on-screen date to trick your friends, create flashing cheesy custom titles, mess up the picture by shaking your device and use the zoom lens feature to emphasize those truly embarrassing moments!

Trust us, we asked literally everyone and it's unanimous: this app is freakin' amazing!

Here's Why You Need It:

• Four words: Best. Throwback. Videos. Ever.

• Create videos of your kids that look like the ones from your childhood

• Impress the new girl by using our app to convince her you built a time machine

• The only app you should ever consider to capture your 80s and 90s-themed parties

• Make your kids' incredibly boring school plays actually watchable

And Also Because of This:

• Realism: the ORIGINAL and BEST app for simulating old videotape recordings

• Change the on-screen date so people think you're way younger--or older--than you really are

• Create custom F*L*A*S*H*I*N*G titles for the ultimate in on-screen cheese

• Phony zoom lens feature dramatically enhances the cheese factor

• Mess up the picture during recording using your finger or by shaking your device

• Don't think we forgot to make things sound bad--we didn't

• Widescreen recording option (but would you REALLY want to use it?)

• Play, share and delete clips using the built-in clip viewer

• Import videos from other apps

*** PLEASE NOTE: THIS APP DOES NOT WORK ON ROOTED DEVICES WITH CUSTOM ROMS. If you don't know what "rooted" means, don't worry about this. ***

Reviews From google play store

i love the app for sure. i cant get enough of the late 80s and early 90s feel it has. it would be nice to have more different effects on the app or give it even a more authentic retro feel. For example, maybe you can add the feature where some VHS tapes show the blue screen first and then makes the sound were its about to start playing ( this could be a feature to use after getting done recording). or ypu can add an edit option were we can edit the videos or even pictures we take. But good work.

Love this app. Bought it after trying the free one for only a few minutes. That said, I do have some thoughts. One Improvement that could be made is if the video taken in selfie mode was flipped around normally after it's recorded like my phone's default camera app. That, in my opinion, is the only real improvement it needs.

Almost perfect. Just one tiny problem. You can edit dates on imported and recorded videos. But if you have the date onscreen, the time will be with it too. Which isn't editable. It stays accurate to the time on your phone. So if you import an old video, say at night, you couldn't correctly spoof it unless you import your video at the time it would seem realistic. Other than that, it works perfectly

Dig everything about this app.. Felt like I was reading something inebriatedly un-lucid me wrote to future, slightly-more-lucid me whilst reading the menus/options/tutorials/descriptions. Get out of my head! [or stay, that's fine.] Luh' the app. features though not so much the incriminating content the recordings featured... that's prolly my bad tho'.

this is great. it really does bring me back to when we use to watch our home videos from our vhs. i love it. i think to a nice suggestion would be to somehow add a mechanical sound effect when zooming in and out to make it feel even more authentic (im not sure if technically capable but would be a nice little feature to have the audio distort when zooming or the default zoom sounds)

I really do enjoy the app but I've found that it's slowing my phone down occasionally especially watching videos or listening to audio the sound becomes aggressively choppy. I don't want to uninstall the app but this is a bit of an issue for me. Not sure if it's exclusive to the Galaxy S8 or not

The effect looks really convincing, but I'm only giving 4 stars because while the camera makes it look like it was filmed in the 80s, the subject still look the same. For example, if filming myself in selfie mode, I still look 40 years old. It should make me look like a kid. I was 10 in 1988.

REALLY AWESOME for people who loves the 80s very much (I do!). Video looks like a real VHS with all the little things to make it better. But sadly it's failed to import videos from my library, it says "Your device can't decode this video." I'm wondering why🤔 Can someone explain me about this problem?

This app is great! Does exactly what it advertises with a with a useful few period-correct features as well (esp. the Titler option). Importing video is a little awkward at first but once I figured it out by accident it was super easy (just hold down the Play button). Well worth the price.

Very awesome app, I love it. One small thing I would change would be it's ability to read imported videos. For example, it would be great if it read the meta-data from the files and adjusted the dates and time on the screen accordingly. That way, if I imported a video, it would automatically put in the correct information on the screen.

Warning: nostalgia overload! The effect is pretty close to homemade VHS videos and on top of that you can customize many elements such as distortion intensity, shake to glitch, clear or muddy audio, widescreen, et cetera. It froze on me at least once but it's not a big deal.

Perfect! I very much like the extra features, everything you'd expect to be customisable is there, the rotation lock (no portrait filming) was just what I needed. using the accelerometer to distort the image based on rotation is very cool also.

I bought this to record for my first camping event with my fraternity and it was wonderful to look back. The only problem i noticed that when I looked back at all the videos is that the gallery of videos are a bit laggy when scrolling. I am using a Pixel 3. Thanks for a great app 👍

This is a pretty cool app that I'm enjoying playing with. The problem comes when importing videos, it plays them in slow motion when importing so everything is sped up when playing normally. It also doesn't import photos, needs the file browser and has no gallery support. The custom text field would be great if you could fit more on the screen (smaller font maybe?)

pretty cool, it only lets you adjust the date code on videos, the time code is whenever you import it. kinda makes for a glaring oddity when you import videos at night when the videos where originally recorded during the day. Otherwise a cool filter app

The level of realisims is indistinguishable between this and a real vhs tape and that's why I love this app. If you could make another app that was a 8mm kind of 1920s-1970s kind of video filter that was to this degree of realism then I couldn't thank you enough. On android there are only like 3 vintage video apps and none of them could fool anyone into thinking they were real. So if you could make a 8mm film filter app then I couldn't thank you enough! Many thanks, Simon.

The video is cut off. Can't tell what I'm doing.--update: seems to work now. vhs effect seems a bit strong though

Just purchased, and albeit being a great app, forcing me to still have the BY RAREVISION line in the titler is lame, please let me have this optionally or not at all. I purchased to being able to customize, so what is this then? Second, the autofocus should do more like pumping, not jumping focus to have a feeling of what it was like. Cheers, keep on...

it's a cool app that worked for a few hours until it suddenly crashed while recording an import and now it crashes EVERY time I try to look at my saved videos even after restarting my phone & reinstalling the app two times.. so now I'm just sad..

Really love this app! It's great. There's a bunch of neat features (admittedly I don't really use many of them) the only thing I would like to see added is the ability to import existing photos to the app in the way you can import video so that you can have existing photos have the effect applied as well but other than that it's great for if you want that old retro vhs feel. That one extra feature would make it an easy 5 stars for me, as of now is 4.75!

You'd swear you're using an old VHS camera, despite holding a 21st century piece of technology. Retro is in, so this app fills that criteria nicely.

This is honestly the best 90s filter app. I use it the most. it's like no other. and you can adjust the colours, settings, and quality... def a 5 star. Worth the cost.

I love this app and it's pretty cool, I like to make videos on this, but despite my use of this app on the Galaxy Note 3, this is one of the problems, I noticed that there has been a bit of lag in the first few videos when I make it. See if example when I opened up the app and then I try to make a the first video the audio and visuals are out of sync.

kîö rê shíë!! this is definately the best VHS camcorder. unlike the other camcorders the footage recorded saves instantly! other camcorders take 15 minutes for every second recorded to then realize it failed to save! i love this VHS ©@/\/\©θrd€r. its the best one!

1 year now, still loving it.^^ I had this make a lot of my vids a retro mess, and still as awesome as ever. Though, it would be cool if you can add an Image Import to also give my local photos that same retro VHS treatment.^^

Love this application but why can't I take still snapshots with it? Today I took a 3 second video and then screen grabbed it... Snap shot button would be great !!! Update: developer replied. Turns out there was no missing feature! 5 stars. Would buy again!

Not bad, however missing features for the price. The IOS mock VHS apps look better and sound way better still. The sound in this app stinks too

Bought the app a while back and it was working great. Tried to open it recently and it just crashes at launch it's completely useless now. S7 active running Android 8.0.

Used on recent vacation to Jamaica. when I showed off the video to friends back home they were blown away. Amazing fun and excellent camera effects! Thanks Devs!

Love it! Now I just want to video everything! Some audio glitching (in sync with rolls etc) would make this perfect.

sometimes when i swipe up it changes the filter and i dont like it because i have to start my video from the start i think that you should like add buttons like zoon ones that make quality bad and the same for filters. And you could add like changing time on the date like you can change date but cant like 2:20 to 5:38 so you should add that

this app is probably one of my most favorite apps I could have ever use I use this at live shows just because of the nostalgic view every time I even open the app I'm hit with this I remember when I was 6 years old watching VHS tapes this app is the most amazing app you could have ever asked for and it's built correctly keep coming out with the awesome updates and the different filters loving it

THIS IS A VERY GEAT APP AND MAKES DIGITAL VIDEOS LOOK LIKE ANALOG VIDEOS VERY WELL but 2 things i want to be added . a selection for a 50hz or 60hz hiss . when fastwarding a video add a vhs fastwarding look

I'm pretty impressed, I do a lot of camera work and this type of stuff usually has to be done in post... The look the feel the zoom.. I'm happy with this, it may have been $3..but i could see myself using this for something serious in terms of video creating and editing

Really love this app and purchased the premium edition to shoot some roller disco footage but I am still getting hit with a 20sec limit! Please help! If this issue didn't exist and I had been able to make use of the premium feature, I would be giving 4-5 stars for sure! **Edit: Just fixed the problem by uninstalling and reinstalling....🙄 Would have been nice if this wasn't necessary but a pretty simple fix that I should have tried already!

So far so good. :)) BTW, could you, please implement a year offset? Like everything in the date is the same as the current date, except the year, which is (for example) 30 years earlier than today.

Brilliant simple video cam that just works. Love that I can also convert other video clips from my gallery to look like VHS. Even managed to make my DJI drone footage look like it's recorded on a camcorder.

It's an amazing app, though it'd be even more awesome if you could import pictures as well, not just videos. Still, one of the best apps for the vintage VHS effect out there. 🌟

You can definitely do this manually through more conventional means, but this app has quick rendering speeds for importing video not recorded through the app. Recording live through the app is great. As someone that loves to use this aesthetic with my videos. Its a great alternative and a time saver.

Всё отлично! Теперь буду как BONES! :) p.s. Когда появится возможность делать не только видео, но и фотографии? Было бы очень здорово!
