You know how your 3GS-wielding friends can shoot video with their iPhones, but you with your regular 3G or 2G or even (snicker) first-gen iPhone are stuck with the lowly still photograph? Suffer no longer, thanks to iVideoCamera, newly available in the App Store.

Well, let me clarify. You won't have to suffer from "lack of ability to shoot video" with your non-3GS iPhone, but you will need to suffer though a host of limitations within the iVideoCamera app itself. The biggest limitation is the unfortunate 3 frames-per-second (FPS) maximum. (The iPhone 3GS camera maxes out at a much more standard 30fps.)

Other limitations include a pretty junky resolution (160-by-213) and a brutal time limit (no more than 60 seconds per video clip). Still, if you love jerky, low-quality, and short video, iVideoCamera lets you shoot it, and share it too--you can post your limited masterpiece to YouTube, Vimeo, and even Facebook.

iVideoCamera costs $1, and is available now.
