Emailing your video is the easiest way to get a video from your mobile device to 12seconds.  All you have to do is take a mobile video on your phone and email it to your special mobile number that is assigned to you.  When 12seconds receives the video they will then process it and post it on the website under your username.  Note: 12seconds does not support Sprint at this time.


h5.  {color:#ff9900}{*}Where do you find your Upload Number?*{color}

h5.  {color:#ff9900}{*}12seconds and iPhone{*}{color}

12 seconds now has an iPhone application that you may purchase on the app store for 99cents.  Since the iPhone doesn't allow you to take video, 12seconds came up with a way to still allow iPhone users to use 12seconds.  By using this application, you can take 3 images and record audio with the images and summit it to the site.  They then take your images and audio and make it into a movie.

h2.  {color:#99cc00}V. Educational Value {color}

Educators have been looking for ways to keep students up to date with technology. This Web 2.0 technology has a variety of applications that can be useful in the classroom. One example that was posted by a teacher was the idea of using for virtual pen-pals.
Students can utilize this application for a group project they are working on and hold discussions, share multimedia, and videos. Students can get that face to face interaction with one another on their own time.


h2. {color:#99cc00} VI. International Uses {color}
{anchor:ref}The great thing about is that anyone can view the website. In other words, if you have access to the internet then it is available for you to
use. I watched a 12 second video on the website of someone from United Kingdom. This just proves that it is something that is becoming a new popular site to
use all around the world. Internationally, people are able to watch video clips of people from the U.S., and vice versa. Maybe a person from Hawaii wants to
post a video about the problems now existing after the hurricane. Anyone in the world would be able to find out what it’s really like in Hawaii by watching
the video. is now moving into the realm of business and causes. With the 12omercial feature companies, like LG and Xobni, they are now paying to have
people upload 12 second video commercials to twitter to help promote their business or cause. (Siegler, 2009).
