Cloud-based app creation studio Appy Pie has added another new feature to its growing mobile app platform. This time, it’s a video social networking API. Users can now easily build their own video sharing social network, thanks to the new API and Appy Pie’s simple drag-and-drop interface.

Videos lasting up to 30 seconds, shot by the app user’s smartphone camera, are hosted online using the API. The user can share the video through the app itself or on other social networks including Facebook and Twitter. Comments are supported, other users can like posts, and the video recording system includes filters for extra creativity.

Abhinav Girdhar, Apple Pie’s founder, said:


“Millions of connected smartphone cameras that now have the bandwidth to seamlessly share video is unprecedented and inspiring. Video Social Networking API was created to empower expression and engagement through user generated videos and images.”

The Video Social Networking API is the latest in a string of interesting new APIs added to the platform over recent months, the last being an in-app purchasing API at the beginning of 2015. Because building apps with Appy Pie requires very little technical or development knowledge, it can help anyone get their start in the world of mobile apps, regardless of experience or budget. It shares the market with similar DIY app building tools including Kony’s Enterprise-focused Mobile Fabric.
