You can’t go back in time, but you can create videos that will make it look as if you traveled back in time to the late 80s or early 90s. There’s a new video app called VHS Camcorder. It transforms high-definition video into grainy, low-quality video with time and date stamps, which can be set to the month and year of the user’s choice. The video app also comes with a time effect preview allowing users to lower video quality by simply dragging a finger across the screen or gently shaking the phone. The app also features a fake zoom lens to keep up with the throwback feel.

When users complete their masterpiece on the VHS Camcorder app, they can instantly share their video clips through the app or camera roll.

Last, but certainly not least, the app features a widescreen recording option.

The appeal of the VHS Camcorder app

The new VHS Camcorder app earned an impressive 5-star rating from users who have tried it and liked it. The app also comes with a high-definition video recording option for the iPhone 4S and newer models. VHS Camcorders were in 4th place on the Top Paid Apps list on the App Store as of this writing.

The new app retails for $3.99 on the App Store. Android fans won’t have to wait long because the app’s creator, Rarevision, announced it will create a similar app for Google’s mobile OS in the near future, but the company didn’t give an official date.
