Now that the iPhone supports video upload in its developer’s platform, it is easier than ever to share your videos with the world. Whether you need a broadcasting tool as a social media professional or a place to upload and share private clips with friends and family, a new generation of video iPhone apps are cropping up.

Blog and social network integration are some of the perks of the following iPhone apps, making it faster for you to share your experience immediately. Below are some of the more efficiently integrated applications for sharing purposes. 

Social, private, and everything in between iPhone apps

ShoZu is pretty inclusive as a mobile blogging tool. With access to multiple blogs and networks, your video uploads can hit the social web quickly when used with the ShoZu iPhone app.  Geo-tagging, multiple post upload and auto-sharing make this a central app for your media-sharing purposes, worth the $4.99 for power users.

12seconds has taken the Twitter approach to mobile video uploads.  Limited to 12 seconds, this free iPhone app is designed to let you give quick video updates about your status.  Social sharing options spread your clip to Twitter, Facebook and other networks.

If Twitter is your primary network for media sharing, then TwitVid should suit you fine. This free iPhone app takes videos from your phone to your Twitter stream, in a few steps.  Choose to record a new clip or pull from your iPhone library. Aside from streaming, this is as fast as video-sharing gets for mobile users.

For more private video sharing, try the Motionbox iPhone app.  Free, Motionbox has secure storage and editing.  All your account videos are accessible through the iPhone app, so you can share them in person, while on the go. Video sharing across the Web is less direct in this app, however, and is best used with Motionbox’s full Web site.

Broadcasting iPhone apps

With Qik, iPhone users can stream live video from their phones.  This broadcasting tool enhances your sharing capabilities through your iPhone, posting alerts and videos to various social networks and blogs. The app is free. Be sure to check Qik’s compatibility for your version of the iPhone, as some settings will need to be changed accordingly.

Kyte is another broadcasting tool, increasing your ability to share video in real time. The free iPhone app gives you a public channel, and also promotes it across the social web. Kyte offers basic analytics for your clip’s activity.  As this is primarily a streaming application, it is limited to iPhone 3GS users.

Workarounds and niche iPhone apps

Animoto does not involve video recording, so it is more accessible to all iPhone users. The free app creates videos from your iPhone’s photos, setting the slideshow to music. The completed video can be shared on multiple sites including YouTube and Facebook.

If you are keen on citizen journalism, try CBS Eyemobile. Upload videos with this free iPhone app, sharing it immediately with viewers of CBS’ mobile news channel. CBS Eyemobile provides viewing and upload of user-generated content.
