VIDDY is like Instagram for video. It combines cool video editing tools with the social scene of Facebook, the #hashtags and tag streams of Twitter, and the viewer commentary of YouTube. It’s easy to make professional-looking video clips and share them across multiple social networks. Encoding and uploading the 15-second videos is fast, making the creation and sharing process instantly rewarding.

It's also fun to browse the video streams to see what people share; from a view of Hong Kong Harbor to a peek inside the studios of a popular radio station, many of these brief scenes of life can be inspiring. With more moderation of videos and comments, it could be a neat creative network for teens. As it is, Viddy is still a great free app with an easy-to-use, ad-free interface.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
