Record More Video with Video Recorder

Video Recorder for the Sidekick

When the video recording capabilities for the Sidekick arrived, many people were disappointed by the limitation of only 20 seconds of video capture. Cramped Thumbs, a new Sidekick applications developer, decided to do something about that and have released Video Recorder, a Sidekick application that lets you record up to 50 seconds of video. Why is it still limited to only 50 seconds? Apparently recording and encoding video really pushes the Sidekick past its normal capabilities. So until we get a new powerful device *cough*sidekickblade*cough* enjoy recording at least more than twice as much as your other Sidekick friends. The app costs $1.99 and is available in the catalog now.

Here’s an example video shot with a Sidekick LX:

You’ll need Quicktime to view the embedded video.

    I guess 30 more secs would be nice, but the Slide doesnt even have a video recording feature so this wouldnt do anything for me. I’m not sold. =(

    that phone is not dope. its the same as the lx except it doesnt have a flash for the camera and the camera is 2mp in stead of the 1.3 on the lx. so…. whats so dope about it?? the stupid shells make it dope?? are you on dope?? lol. dope is such a dope word. i havent heard anyone say it in a while. dope. i guess its dope to say dope now. and now im dope because i said that im dope. anybody that hates on me is not dope and might as well be on dope. now thats dope! boyeeeeeee!!!!

  11. Bearmon Says:

    No thanks! Look at the quality.. It is bad. Nah. I will buy it one time if they make a great quality. Otherwise, no way!

  12. cevinth wonder Says:

    50 seconds still not long enough. I need a camcorder on my phone, not a 50 second video recorder. lol Its fuzzy and I have to pay for it.

  13. Bearmon Says:

    If you guys think it is bad.. Why not contact them and hopeful they listen and upgrade to a better one so we can pay one time fee ? What do you guys think ?

  14. Spencer Says:

    im so anxious about the new sidekick!! are there any other details about it?!!!??!?!
    im soo sick of my iphone

  15. Alex Says:

    has anyone acknowledged the sheer cuteness of this cat? he’s adorable! (i assume it’s a he)

  16. None Says:

    This app is retarded why would you pay for something they should have done in the first place

  17. gizmo Says:

    This is hardly news at all. We all have seen the stupid app and I’m sure that there are some people that have made the purchase but I don’t see a reason to. The camera on this thing is **** and we all know it. I use my camera like its a **** camera. I take pictures like its a camera phone from 2002 lol. You guys remember those old motorota phones that had the detatchable camera? Those things where 1.3mp and the sidekick lx has that. The only difference is that now screen resolution has improved wo we all have been tricked into thinking that its a better camera. I know better than to think that I will get a good vid with technology that is right outside of analog cell phone tech.

    LMFAO so glad I left the SK and got the storm. Its so childish and they charge for the dumbest **** cuz they know “KIDS” will buy anything. Sk still has a LONG way to go to catch up with “todays” market. Much luck to the play skool smartphone!

    If you complaint about it.. Tell them about it.. I think it is no good anyway.

    stfu get a life

  22. justin Says:

    Hopefully the blade will have a bigger frame and longer recording for the video

  23. alex Says:

    i would not pay for this. sidekicks should already have longer recording times.

  24. Koloheboy Says:

    Awwww, guess the 2009 not coming out tomorrow lol… *sigh* would be a nice April Fools gift lol

  25. gizmo Says:

    i dont know about you guys but im ready for some new news.

    there is nothin like new neys. im always checking this site for my sidekick news, its very informative and i can actually get alot of really helpful info from here.

    Ant speaking of information, when it the fcc confidence thing up?? i forgot. i expect some really good news on that day.

    asdanger is doing a real good job of keeping this thing under wraps.

  26. Koloheboy Says:

    Gizmo,

    Yup, agree with yah.. need to get some new fresh news lol. I keep refreshing the site for updates.

  27. Crazyforkicks Says:

    Fcc confidentiality agreement expires april 13.
    But normally sharp would have to file a complete device submission.
    Option NV just makes the guts.

    But wat this point, who is manufacturing the phone? sharp, microsoft, motorolla?
    I have been searching all 3 on the fcc site

  28. gizmo Says:

    i really hope its not motorola. i dont like the slide. sharp makes the best kicks. if its microsoft than it may not be too bad but i dont like what motorola did to the kick at all. they made it a motorola phone with the sidekick O.S and that was not cool

  29. gizmo Says:

    so still nothing new?? geez.i been on the edge of my seat here. my lx got dropped in the fish tank while my girl was on it and cleaning the fish tank. i dont know why she was cleaning the fish tank while on my phone but thats what happened. so im really really really in need of a new kick and i dont want to buy a lx this close to a new kick coming out.

  30. Koloheboy Says:

    dang dizmo that really sucks! 🙁 I am in the edge too, yesterday went to tmo to look for phones LOL!!! but still no new phone :(.. they need to step it up…

  31. 915rko Says:

    well april 1st passed and no phone ;( we just have to wait now. may, june, july, august, maybe until october? I hope that its not that long.

  32. Koloheboy Says:

    oohhhh hell no lol… that’s way too long and yet iPhone is going to come out with 2 phones this year…

  33. aajr92 Says:

    I too like gizmo and koloheboy is on the edge…i haven’t had a sidekick for about 7 months…:/

  34. gizmo Says:

    so we all agree that this is catsh*t!!! i say we raid the msdanger office and take all the sidekicks that they have been using to post those twitter comments from!! lmao. im just playing. we donat have any choice but to wait and it sux. i have another sidekick but its the one that i had to replace with the one that ended up in the fish tank. why does it take to long to come out with a kick. the operating system never really changes much and the hardware is usually just slightly better from one model to the next. i dont think they know that there are some of us that dont want to use another phone. i think theyt really do believe that we will just use another phone until a new kick comes out. they have to know that these things get abused between new model releases. the time it takes to put out a new kick is about how long a kick survives anyway. so why wait so long??

  35. alex Says:

    i agree with gizmo. why does it take so long for a new one to come out? i’m not going to use another phone, i’d rather wait why my lx is slowly dying which believe me it is.

  36. alex Says:

    i agree with gizmo. why does it take so long for a new one to come out? i’m not going to use another phone, i’d rather wait while my lx is slowly dying which believe me it is. i don’t understand why it takes soo long

  37. KoloheBoy Says:

    No kidding, why so long? Not sure, they don’t know how important this is, well remember they had two sk in one year? The slide and lx? lol well, they should make 2 this year 1. The sk razr 2. da sk 2009. Ehehe that would be sweet.

  38. ooo Says:

    Poor Sidekick users. I come on here hoping there would be some more info on the Sidekick LX 09 but no! Lol, they are actually charging you guys to record a 50 second video clip? Sucks, especially since the camera is pretty shxty quality. It’s so pathetic. I mean I can’t believe they’re actually charging people this in the year 2009?!?!?! WOW. The tech in the sidekicks are super outdated and charge people sooooooo much for them. I really feel sorry for you guys. That quality in that video was worse then my super old nextel phone and guess what….you can record over 50 seconds for FREE. Lmao, it’s our fault tho. We keep buying this BS. I mean seriously, a sidekick lx cost more then an iPhone! The iPhone and the ipod touch are years ahead of it. It leaves the Sidekick in the dust. There’s no excuses for the sidekick anymore. Anyone who owns a sidekick is an idiot IMO. They raised the data plan prices ridiculously high, the SK is bottlenecked because of EDge and it is lacking just about everything. Just stop wasting your time with sidekicks and get a G1. Stop pretending the lx 2009 will be any better because knowing the history it probably won’t. There basically charging u guys more to eat out of a dumpster when you can eat in a restaurant for a cheaper price.

  39. mike czukiewski Says:

    yeah… i think the sidekick and danger need to up there game… the iphone and storm is killing it these days. the danger os needs to be wokred on alot!

    another thing.. why would i pay 200+ dollars on a phone that isn’t even fast? like the harware on it sux! the new sidekick (blade) sucks too. i was expecting:

    5.0 mp camera
    unlimited record time
    flac file format supported
    wifi

    i think ima go buy the iphone..

  40. john la Says:
