If you're wondering why anybody would want to record in VHS quality, well, you clearly never woke up with a strange desire to recreate 80's family home videos that show your dad's mullet in its full glory. In case we've helped you see the light but can't find your parents' decades-old camcorder in the basement, here's the next best thing: an iOS app that can mimic its effects. It's aptly called VHS Camcorder, and TechCrunch says it doesn't only take grainy videos, it also captures crappy audio -- the app's clearly aiming for accuracy.

You can even add date and time stamps, which you can manipulate to show whatever year you want, and then share the final product on Facebook, Instagram and other social media websites. Only problem is that the app isn't free and costs quite a bit ($3.99). If you buy it, make sure to raid your family home for boomboxes, Cyndi Lauper clothes and other props, so you can get the most out of it.
