You know you've seen or heard it somewhere. In one of the video in your media library maybe. But which one? If only you could quickly find specific moments.

Now you can! Want to bookmark scenes in movies by location? By actor? By subject? Shoot video and need a way to index it all? Use avTag to create tags, and store the time-stamps of specific locations in your media. You can edit the titles and even add notes. The tags are fully indexed, so you can browse through them or search and see the results in an instant.

Imagine you have attended a conference and have 20 or 30 presentation videos. All of them contained useful ideas, information, tips and tricks. Six months later you remember something which is now relevant. Would you remember where to find it again? Your time is probably your most valuable asset. Save yourself hours by tagging those moments and use avTag's powerful search feature to find them again instantly.

Podcasts can contain hours of really valuable information. It's hard to scrub through to find a particular moment. Hear something you want to research later? Use avTag to tag it. For example, if your favourite photography podcast has a Q&A section you can use avTag to create an index of the questions.

Take control of your audio and video files! You're no longer faced with hours of unsearchable media in countless files. Empower yourself and 'avTags in them instead.

Key features include:
• View a consolidated list of the media on your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.
• List filtering shows only the media types you want to see.
• Create tags quickly and easily from the the avTag media player.
• Browse through tags associated with the media items.
• Search to find matching text in the media item's name, tag names or notes.
• Jump straight to the exact moment you tagged.
• Control the player with swipe gestures. Swipe down to play and pause the media. Swipe up to add a tag. Swipe left and right to jump to the previous or next tag or chapter in the media file.
• Export tags and share them with other avTag users.
• Backup your entire avTag library.
• avTag does not alter the media files in any way. All tags are stored in avTag's own library.

avTag works with the non-DRM media in your Music, Videos, Podcasts, iTunes-U and Photos applications as well as Apple-friendly audio and video files stored in avTag's documents folder.

What's New

Version 1.2.4

We have added some additional playback speeds to give you greater flexibility when watching or listening to your media files.

We have fixed a bug where trying to delete or export tags from the tags list in the player would not behave as expected.

Thank you to Jani for mentioning both to us.

The missing feature in podcasting


I listen to podcasts in the car or in the gym. Whenever I hear something useful I’ve resorted to trying to remember whereabouts it was but more often than not I just forget all about it.

Now I just use avTag to bookmark them and I can find those useful snippets easily when I get home.

Great App, Very Useful!

Darren Wheatley

This is the media player that I’ve been looking for for a while now. The overall user experience is vastly better than the standard Apple app. The ability to mark (tag) each audio or video file has been extremely useful, and a real time saver.
