iPhone Apps Of The Week: Clipper, Potluck, And More

Make beautiful memories, read all the best web content, catch up with family, and watch all the videos your little heart desires. Sound like an impossible number of multitasking? Nah — not if you have this week's round of iphone apps to help you out.

Clipper: One of the great things about Vine and now Instagram, too, is the ability to stop filming and pick up right where you left off. It has the effect of producing more dynamic, interesting clips than you would otherwise. But that's the problem — your're stuck to clips. With Clipper, though, you can get that very same result without the time constraints. [$1]

Potluck: Have you ever found a great article on the web, and wanted to share it, but couldn't figure out the wittiest/snarkiest/ironic-est way to Facebook or tweet about it? Potluck promises to take the anxiety out of sharing links, by creating conversations between friends and friends of friends who enjoyed the same article. Now they're offering this "house party on the internet" in iOS app form. [Free]

VLC: Hey now! VLC, the bestest fastest sweetest codec-iest easiest to usiest and every positive -est adjectie there is video player around, is now available (again) on iOS. If you're looking to play videos on your iPhone and iPad, VLC is probably going to be your best bet. The app also lets you adjust playback speed, tweak brightness, contrast, saturation, etc. and supports subtitles. It's a welcome return to VLC which was kicked out of the App Store in the beginning of 2011. [Free]

Origami: No one wants their parents on their Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other social media site they might be busy embarrassing themselves on. They surely don't want to see pictures of you on the verge of consciousness every night and you certainly don't want them posting embarrassing things in a public forum. Origami keeps things private, so everyone wins. [$5/month]
