Our blogger Tari has posted a couple times about the recent influx of programs for recording and broadcasting video via your iPhone, including the first generation and 3G iPhones. iVideoCamera ($0.99) is currently the most popular video recording app. Now ShowTime - Video Recorder ($0.99) has entered the fray, and has much greater capability. iVideoCamera records at 3 frames per second, whereas ShowTime does 6. In addition, iVideoCamera is limited to videos of about one minute in length, whereas ShowTime can do any length. And while iVideoCamera can only do 160 x 213 resolution, ShowTime offers 320 x 240. Sounds good. ShowTime began its life as an app for jailbroken iPhones, but then the developers stopped selling it when the App Store opened, hoping to be official. And now 16 months later the app has been released.
