Until now, if you wanted to share clips from the show you're watching with your friends, running it back on the DVR and filming your TV with Vine was an easy option. Other workarounds achieve more less than stellar results, but a new app for iOS and Android looks to make things easier, and gives those vids a quality boost, too. Want to make sure your pals see Lorde's awesome dance moves during the AMAs? Just tap the TV icon on the app's main screen to view a list of shows that are currently on air. Once you've made a selection, pick from a smattering of scenes, with the most recent shown at the top. Choosing one brings up an editing pane to fine-tune the clip, and after you choose a cover frame and caption, the desired footage is ready to be shared via Facebook and Twitter.

As you might expect, you can pad your friends list inside the app to like, comment and reclip videos. Looking for a scene to share that you missed it on-air? Clips from other users are grouped by theme so you can seek out Action, Comedy and other bits to broadcast on your social networks. This also means that in the event of a sick catch during the game, you'll be able to relive that with folks as well. If you're ready to put it to work, Clippit is available via iTunes and Google Play.
