Burst and The Sporting News Put Youth Sports In The Spotlight

Burst, the
mobile solution designed to give families an easier way to capture and share
videos and photos taken with their smartphone, today announced the launch of
Burst Sports, a whole new way to capture those fleeting youth sports moments
that parents don’t want to miss.  With the latest version of its app,
Burst users will have access to unique sports-specific tags that facilitate
better search and filtering of their videos on the web and a new “highlight”
feature where special effects such as spotlight, zoom and slow-motion can be
applied to a mobile video with just one tap. In addition, with Burst’s Bubbles
feature, youth sports teams can create a group to collaborate in capturing
videos and photos from the same game.  This media is automatically
collected and delivered to team parents in real-time. Burst users can choose to
share content privately to groups or individuals via email and SMS or socially
on Facebook and other media platforms.
