Many people worry about watching video contents online because of the length and effect it will have on their data plan. Your videos will be more appealing if you can make it short and precise; one wouldn’t mind watching a 6-second video over and over again.

There are several apps with video time limits, you can customize your content to fit into them. Attract more viewers, make your videos punch and terse with these amazingly popular video sharing apps.

1) Instagram: max. video limit – 15 seconds – Video Sharing 

Beyond photo sharing, you can now share videos on Instagram. You can keep your followers entertained by making videos through the app and uploading them from your device. Instagram videos has a minimum and maximum limit of 3 and 15 seconds respectively. For now, there’s no way to separate or filter out video content from photos on Instagram.

2) Snapchat: max. video limit – 10 seconds

Similar to Instagram, Snapchat lets you post both photos and videos. Photos and videos self-destruct after just a few seconds once your recipients have viewed them, but videos that you send through Snapchat can only run for up to 10 seconds. You can send your photo or video messages to individual friends, or post them as Snapchat Stories so they can be viewed over and over again publicly by all your friends for up to 24 hours.

3) Montaj: max. video limit – 6 seconds

Montaj is a fun video sharing app that urges you to shake your device to shuffle through and discover new videos. You can create your own videos using the unique storyboard builder, and publish videos up to six seconds in length. The app even lets you add a soundtrack to your videos with tracks from iTunes. And just like Instagram, Montaj has its own built-in social network, so you can like and comment on other users’ videos too.

4) Echograph: max. video limit – 5 seconds

Echograph offers a bit of a different video experience by allowing you to film a short clip, trim it to a maximum of just five seconds, choose a still frame and then paint the parts of the video you want to move. Much like Vine, the video automatically plays on loop. The result is similar to a GIF, and Echograph works almost identically to Cinemagram – another popular GIF-like video sharing app.

5) Bloop It: max. video limit – 22 seconds

Some video apps are more about the editing features while others focus more heavily on the social networking experience. Bloop It is an app that helps people trim down long YouTube videos into 22 seconds or less, and it’s an app that goes big on social. Users get their own feed and tabs to see videos that are newest, trending, featured and NSFW. You can tap any video to be taken to the full version on YouTube where it originally came from.

6) Ocho: max. video limit – 8 seconds

If you already love Vine or Instagram video, you’ll probably love Ocho as a video app for all the extra viewing features it offers. You can film up to 8 seconds of video and watch all the videos in your newsfeed just like a TV – in fullscreen mode. Ocho is also a highly social app, so in addition to the great editing features and filters you can use, you can also like, re-share and reply with a video to other users’ videos.

7) Flipagram: max. video limit – 30 seconds

Flipagram is a handy tool that helps transform the photos you post on social media into a short slideshow video. You can create one up to 30 seconds to be posted on Flipagram, or create one for Instagram, which has a limit of up to 15 seconds of video. The app accesses your camera roll and social media accounts so you can easily select photos to use, and then lets you set your slideshow video to music using a track on your device or a free track sample from iTunes.

8) 1 Second Everyday: Up to 1 second per daily clip

1 Second Everyday is a different kind of video app that doesn’t necessarily place a limit on the completed video. Instead, you’re limited to choosing one-second clips so they can be stitched together into one big video. The concept is to create a video made up of one-second clips filmed on every day of your life. If you stick to filming just a second a day every single day for the next several years, you’ll end up with your own personal movie that could be hours long.
