VHS Camcorder

THE ORIGINAL VHS APP! It's 1984, and you've got a camcorder! It'll look that way when you record and send old, messed up-looking videos to friends. They'll swear you built a time machine: "OMG, how'd you shoot that?"

Reviewed by WIRED, TechCrunch, Mashable, Forbes, Wall Street Journal, Popular Mechanics, The Independent, Macworld, and many, many others!

With VHS Camcorder, you'll make home movies that look and sound like video tapes pulled out of storage after 30 years. You can change the on-screen date to trick your friends, create flashing cheesy custom titles, mess up the picture by shaking your device and use the zoom lens feature to emphasize those truly embarrassing moments!

"That's freakin' amazing!" -Everyone

Here's Why You Need It:

• Four words: Best. Throwback. Videos. Ever.
• Create videos of your kids that look like the ones from your childhood
• Impress the new girl by using our app to convince her you built a time machine
• The only app you should ever consider to capture your 80s and 90s-themed parties
• Make your kids' incredibly boring school plays actually watchable

And Also Because of This:

• Realism: the ORIGINAL and BEST app for simulating old videotape recordings
• Change the on-screen date so people think you're way younger--or older--than you really are
• Create custom F*L*A*S*H*I*N*G titles for the ultimate in on-screen cheese
• Phony zoom lens feature dramatically enhances the cheese factor
• Mess up the picture during recording using your finger or by shaking your device
• Don't think we forgot to make things sound bad--we didn't
• Widescreen recording option (but would you REALLY want to use it?)
• Easily share videos from within the app or through Camera Roll
• Built-in clip viewer for playing back, deleting and sharing clips
• Choose your frame rate: 24, 25 or 30
• HD video recording on iPhone 4s and newer devices (1080p requires iPhone 5 or better)

VHS Camcorder Reviews


Love it  Gozer85  4 star

Love this app! It's so cool and easy to use, only 4 out 5 because it doesn't have a feature to upload videos and apply the effect as a filter.

ICE  //  2Dot Entertainment

Good. But crashes.  ICE // 2Dot Entertainment  4 star

The app is amazing! It's exactly what I was looking for. The only thing is that there's times where I film and stop and the video doesn't get saved in the video library so I shot and filmed for like 2 minutes for nothing :/ Also, add the portrait angle and import videos tab.


VHS Camcorder  Bean1680  5 star

This app is excellent and is quite functional. Only suggestions would be to add a VHS style glitch effect and the ability to pause/resume while recording.

Cadon Christian

HUGE PROBLEM!  Cadon Christian  1 star

The app is completely useless, my camera will not be displayed when I use the app sooo I am unable to use the app. Please fix this as I would enjoy very much.


Music  xKat301  3 star

Love the visual effect, wish I were able to record with music playing in the background


I love the app, just one suggestion though  EeveeGamer  5 star

I love this app! It looks almost exactly like an old VHS tape but, I'm only using this to make edits for my YouTube channel, and in order to do that I need to import the video. Please add an option to import a video because I already spent the money, and I'm not letting it go for other apps with the same offer


Really love this app  MIGUELS4775  4 star

I really love this app but it would be a million times better without the static sound it makes when I watch the videos I recorded.


Do this and I'll give 5 stars  Erincatharine  3 star

Please allow us to play music while recording then I'll give five stars. Everything else I like 👏🏻

Nostalgia Recorder  Braden Welke  4 star

I absolutely love this app, it's really simple to use and the UI is really awesome. Although the only feature I would ask for is the ability to upload videos from your camera roll to crop and add the VHS filter to.


The Best  GrahamDG  5 star

Whenever I post a video using this app everybody asks me how I did it. Simple interface and great results. Five stars all the way!

Greg the critic

Add one more Thing.  Greg the critic  4 star

The app is all around amazing and probably one of the best FX app out there and worth the money, but what could make this app even better a import feature. Being able to import videos and adding this old VHS effect would be fantastic. I could add the effect to old videos that I have recorded in the past. This would make the app so much better. Please do add this in a future update.


Great. Just needs import  amnesia-kei  4 star

All this needs is an import function.

Matteo Tsiyon

Loving it, loving possible updates too  Matteo Tsiyon  4 star

I am in love with Vhs camcorder. It does bring back the 90s, something this generation can experience. Well! As much as I enjoy it, I believe VHS can have a little more updates, as maybe new camera colors, the ability to important videos.. It's great as it is, yet a little spark wouldn't hurt ^_^


Needs importing and photo mode  Slawths  3 star

just add those two things and this app would be golden.


I love it  Thestufff  5 star

Very well made, it records wonderfully and really feels like a vhs recording :)


Free versions are better  RyanMac82  1 star

Yes, this app looks great, but the fact that one cannot upload prerecorded videos into the app is annoying. This was a total waste of money and if I could request a refund I would.


Great, but...  Mr.Nammyz  4 star

the only thing I would want added to this app is a setting to add the date to videos that were already saved in our library, but other then that this app is amazing

A very angry user.

Import feature  A very angry user.  5 star

Simple, great app..just needs an import feature and it'll be perfect.

Big Ty Ty

What a great idea.  Big Ty Ty  5 star

great app, functions beautiful. i love it.


Can't import vids from camera roll..???  Texfone  2 star

I shot a ton of visually stunning videos today thinking I could put them together into one retro video with this app. Then I bought it and realized I couldn't. Truly disappointing.
