Google Camera Saves The World...From Vertical Video

Google has released Google Camera, a new app from Google for Android devices running 4.4 or higher was released with The New Killer Camera Feature™: When you switch to video mode, you get a little indicator smack dab in the middle of the screen to remind you to rotate your device and shoot that video horizontally, as God intended it. There are some other nice features of the app, such as a “Photo Sphere” feature (builds a 360 degree panorama) and Lens Blur, but really the great thing here is the Flip Your Frakking Phone For Video™ thing. This is one of the few cases where something on Android is clearly needed on iOS, and I can’t wait till we see a version of it in an iPhone camera app. In case you’re wondering what makes this a bad idea, check out the Vertical Video Syndrome, or VVS PSA from Glove and Boots, below:
