iVideoCamera brings recording to iPhone 2G and 3G, at 3 fps

updated 02:50 pm EST, Tue December 15, 2009

Resolution and frame rate expected to improve

Apple has finally approved a video recording app, iVideoCamera, for the iPhone 2G and 3G. The utility currently shoots video that is poor quality compared to the native recording on the iPhone 3GS. Users will be limited to one-minute segments at 3 frames per second, while the resolution is just 160x213. The developer, Laan, claims the next update will bring improvements to the frame rate, resolution, and clip length.

Apple had been criticized for not enabling video recording on the earlier iPhones, as the hardware was believed to support the additional functionality. The company recently eased the restrictions on phone-to-phone streaming, with the approval of Knocking Live Video.

iVideoCamera is now available from the App Store for $1. [via theAppleBlog
