Private video diary


Broody was created from the frustration of wanting to record a personal video diary, but not finding any existing apps that don't collect any data, are easy to use and free.

The app was designed and built by Jesper Bellenbaum and myself in our free time and published under the GNU GPL. It received more than a thousand downloads across both mobile app stores without any marketing whatsoever and continues to be used daily by many. It also lead to the publishing of a new video transcoding package for Flutter.
