Socialcam sees major 5.0 version update on iOS

The popular iOS and Android video-sharing app Socialcam has recently received a major update to version 5.0, and in doing so it has relaunched as a brand new app rather than an update to the previous version. According to Socialcam’s community manager, this is because of behind-the-scenes changes largely relating to the app’s acquisition by Autodesk some time ago, which required resubmission of the app rather than a simple update to the previous version. Consequently, the old version of Socialcam has been removed from the App Store, and existing users will no longer receive updates. The new version, meanwhile, is available as a free download for iOS, with a new Android version to follow shortly. The old Android version is still available from Google Play. This review is based on the new iOS version.
