Via.me: free multi-media editing and sharing app for iPhone

As consumers look for alternatives to Instagram, via.me stands out as a multi-media editor and sharing app that recently launched in a sea of flat options.

Photo, video, sound sharing made simple

As demonstrated in the video above, via.me is an iPhone app designed to take photo sharing one step further by not only offering video sharing from the same app, but voice/sound sharing while also offering beautiful photo filters much like the Instagrams of the world.

The company promises that via.me will always be free, and they do not have any limits on content you can create and share. The concept is to make sharing simple, and after creating a photo, video or audio file, with one click, it can be shared on your chosen social networks.

What is also unique about via.me is that they offer push notifications so that if one of your friends comments on something on via.me, you are sent a notification on your iPhone, even if the app is not up and running.

The free app is extremely highly rated in the iTunes store and reviews allude to a massive bug fix the company recently underwent to improve their offering. Like competitors, users can follow each other on via.me and interact with one another, adding the social element to this media sharing site.

People leaving Instagram

Whether reasonable or misguided, Facebook’s defensive purchase of Instagram for $1 billion yesterday has led to a small exodus of displeased users.

Tech bloggers are publishing guides on how to save your Instagram photos and dump the service, leaving a vacancy in the photo sharing app arena. Some are flocking to PicPlz.com, Cinemagram, Camera+ and others, but these apps, like Instagram, are still limited to the singular function of taking a picture, adding a filter and sharing it, while via.me adds the functionality of video and audio which makes it an appealing alternative to Instagram, particularly power users that are frequently mobile.

Hopefully, via.me will launch an Android app and a Windows mobile app, but for now, iPhone users can check out the app and download it below:

    It’s about time Instagram’s day in the sun is over. I’ve been saying no to them since day one.

    I (Lani) waited for Android, but they rolled out a (pardon my German) a half-assed product that was incomplete. I’ll stick to PicPlz even though Instagram is so hipstery cool.

    I’m a fan of G+ with the Picasa integration. You can share that just about anywhere. Or I just use Posterous to hit all my networks. I sure hope Twitter doesn’t shut that down…..

    switched from Posterous to Tumblr, now I just need to get unlazy and actually transfer my years of Posterous junk to Tumblr.

    That’s what I’m dreading. I love Posterous and think it’s a better fit for me than Tumblr. I love being able to blog on the fly from my phone and make sure all the assets hit their respective and appropriate repositories all in one shot. It’s brilliant.
