This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
vidibox is a new and different kind of video remixing app for iPad that lets users create real-time music and video projects from an intuitive drum pad interface.
It gives DJs, VJs, installation artists, digital storytellers, video mashup fans and music lovers the ability to express themselves easily with intuitive, professional quality video and audio mixing.
Designed expressly for iPad, the vidibox interface is extremely easy to use, yet allows for very high quality editing.

Excellent expressive app
I have all the vj apps, but this one is special. Still a little rough around the edges, but the whole "drumpads for video" thing is awesome. I use this at audio/video jams and it's very expressive, responsive and fun. Can't wait to see how it's improved! Some feature requests: speed/pitch and direction controls, a "loop while held" mode, blending/composite options instead of split screens, a video stutter effect, and perhaps a "scratch video" option when dragging your finger on the pad. The pads could be used as an x/y for a lot of things, actually. Anyway, the app is great, buy it now, fools!
This is one of those apps where you think "of course! Why didn't I think of that?"
Incredibly useful. Well thought out first version of this app. If you have even a little interest in doing video of any kind I think you will immediately see the creative potential here.
For the price you might think it's a gimmick or toy, I assure you it isn't. Well laid out intuitive and accessible to all standard import export schemes for iOS. Can't wait to see what tools we get in future updates. Hopefully deeper editing functionality, and per clip effects. Also midi learn would make this a serious live performance contender.
Having fun with this app.
Been a Few days since I downloaded it but until now I opened it, started just tapping around and suddenly it's dark. Definitely mashup fun! Hope the developers can add more sound effects, I'm digging this app! Great you can pull your sounds from your library, Dropbox, audio share and audio copy , awesome!
