    I mentioned the idea of posting short video reviews along with some of the apps I review as an after thought about a week ago.
    So I thought I'd stick a poll to find out for sure.

    I wanted to see if anyone was interested in seeing me do this in addition to my textual reviews. I think textual reviews can only do so much and having a video will help you a bit to decide whether to get the app or not (especially paid apps!) One of the deciding factors for me is, how well an app works by how quickly the application loads and/or its data.

    The videos would be hosted elsewhere (I do my own hosting) and you would be able to view them via a link. (I don't think I can embed it here).

    I also considered another option in doing this...offering the videos in mobile video format (3gp), so that mobile visitors can view them. The other option would be the equivalent to a bit better quality than YouTube, but easily viewable, and text readable.

    I would be interested in this. Pictures only do so much justice to an app or review!

    No, because that means I will need to start doing it too.
