Mirage Labs has just announced of Video also Photos Email 1.0.0 for iPad. The first app that truly extends Email Sharing capability of the default Photos app. iPad users would be able to send the message “Video Is Too Long” when trying to attach video larger than 54 seconds, because of the native Photos app’s own limitations.

In the Settings, you can specify the Video and Photo Quality and the app uses appropriate compression level. You can also specify maximum attachment size so that attachment sizes do not cross limits imposed by sender/receiver’s email service provider.

The app uses iOS in app email feature, so you do not have to enter email credentials in the app. The email gets queued to the Mail app Outbox just after you attach and hit the Send button. The email gets sent in the background.

Tip 1: Under Default Settings, you can attach Video upto ~2.5 minutes long, or around 50 photos in 1180×960 resolution

Tip 2: To attach a longer Video, in the Settings choose Video Quality to “Low”. This should allow you to send Video upto ~4.5 minutes in length,

Tip 3: To attach Video upto 10 min long, in the Settings choose Video Quality to “Lowest”,

Tip 4: To attach a video in original (HD) resolution, in the Settings choose “Good” Video Quality, this allows you to send upto 30 sec of video in HD resolution,

Tip 5: To send photos in full resolution, in the Settings choose Photo Quality to “Full Resolution”. This allows you to send upto 7 photos in full resolution,

A iPad user allows to attach over 50 photos in a single email while the native Photos app limits them to send 5 photos at a time. There was thus a keenly felt need to share longer videos and more than 5 photos privately through email in response to which this app was developed.

Requirements: Compatible with iPad. Requires iOS 4.2 or later.

Pricing and Availability:
Video (&Photos) Email 1.0.0 is $2.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Photography category.
