It's 1984, and you've got a VHS camcorder! It'll look that way when you record and send old, messed up-looking retro videos to friends. They'll swear you built a time machine: "OMG, how'd you shoot that?"

With Rarevision VHS, you'll make home movies that look and sound like real retro video tapes pulled out of storage after 30 years. You can change the on-screen date to trick your friends, create flashing cheesy custom titles, glitch up the picture by shaking your device and use the zoom lens feature to emphasize those truly embarrassing moments!

Trust us, we asked literally everyone and it's unanimous: this app is freakin' rad!

Here's Why You Need It:

• Four words: Best. Throwback. Videos. Ever.
• Create VHS-style retro videos of your kids that look like the ones from your childhood
• Impress the new girl by using our app to convince her you built a time machine
• The only VHS app you should ever consider to capture your 80s and 90s-themed parties
• Make your kids' incredibly boring school plays actually rad

And Also Because of This:

• Realism: the ORIGINAL and BEST VHS app for simulating the glitches of old videotape recordings
• Change the on-screen date so people think you're way younger--or older--than you really are
• Create custom F*L*A*S*H*I*N*G titles for the ultimate in on-screen cheese
• Phony zoom lens feature dramatically enhances the cheese factor
• Glitch the picture during recording using your finger or by shaking your device
• Don't think we forgot to make things sound retro terrible (we didn't)
• Widescreen recording option (but would you REALLY want to use it?)
• Import videos from other apps to give them the VHS treatment

*** PLEASE NOTE: THIS APP DOES NOT WORK ON ROOTED DEVICES WITH CUSTOM ROMS. If you don't know what "rooted" means, don't worry about this. ***

Really rad app. I shoot analogue video, real VHS, and this comes very close. The bottom film reel glitch on this though is a bit too much; real VHS doesn't have that many scratches. I wish you could add with a switch which layers were added to the video. Also, se analogie video switch things would be cool, like transitions and fades, distortions, picture in picture, etc. Please develop an analogue video mixer app!!! Would be awesome. Good work guys.

Almost perfect. Just one tiny problem. You can edit dates on imported and recorded videos. But if you have the date onscreen, the time will be with it too. Which isn't editable. It stays accurate to the time on your phone. So if you import an old video, say at night, you couldn't correctly spoof it unless you import your video at the time it would seem realistic. Other than that, it works perfectly

Really cool app actually! I love how you have the titles feature and the steady zoom in/out is perfect (honestly, I wish regular camera apps had zoom like that lol). I also really appreciate that when you buy the app, you actually get the full app, none of that in-purchase stuff that I see a lot of. One thing I used to use in my actual camcorder that I didn't see here is a fade in/out button. Many cameras had that ability back then; you should add that here if possible. But overall, it's fun!
