Our users have taken Magisto with them to some pretty interesting places, from vacations around the world to school trips, and we were pretty excited to see that one of our users brought Magisto with him to the 2012 Daytona 500!

Darren Ramsey headed to the Daytona 500 this year to support the Best Buy racing team and he captured the event in an awesome Magisto movie that he shared yesterday on Twitter.  Darren told us via email, “The 2012 Daytona 500 was a once in a lifetime experience for me – a total ‘Bucket List’ item in being there for the first victory for Best Buy Racing and in the Daytona 500 no less.”

We were so glad to see that Darren used Magisto to document the event and we asked him how he discovered our app.  He says, “I read about Magisto from CES and downloaded it for my iPhone.  I had not had the chance to use it until the Daytona 500.”  He tells us that before Magisto he always shot video with his mobile phone, but never really did anything with the footage.  He says, “My only regret is that I did not shoot more video during my Daytona 500 weekend to capture and share even more of my experience.”

If you’ve got footage of an exciting event sitting on your computer hard drive or smartphone you can use Magisto to turn it into a movie to share, in a click.  Upload your footage to the Magisto iPhone app or to Magisto.com and Magisto analyzes your footage using sophisticated AI technology, determines the best parts and cuts it together into a movie you’ll be proud to share.  Our automatic video editing app does the work for you, while you sit back and relax.

If you’ve created a Magisto movie that you’re especially proud of, feel free to share it with us in the comments below!
