Searching for Videos

One of the coolest features this new app offers is the ability to search for videos by searching for words spoken in the video or presented on the screen in a video. In the picture below, I searched for the word "Smile," and the app showed me a video with the word in the title AND all the instances the word was uttered or appeared on the screen:

Uploading/Recording a Video

If you'd like to upload or record a video, simply tap the purple + icon in the bottom right corner:
