Telling Your Stories with Video

IDEO's Toy Lab releases Spark Camera, its first iOS app for grown-ups

Fast uploading. Easy access to filters. The ability to add your own soundtrack. The Spark Camera app makes it simple and fun to shoot, edit, and share videos with an iPhone or iPad.

The software, developed in-house by IDEO’s Toy Lab with support from the Digital Shop, is the first app we’ve built purposely for adults. It complements our children’s portfolio, which includes iOS smartphone and tablet apps like our award-winning Balloonimals and Elmo’s Monster Maker for Sesame Street.

Spark is a gorgeous and well-defined video iOS application that fulfills the first rule of great design: get the hell out of the way so I can get to the task at hand.
