There are hundreds of thousands of iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad apps for just about everything -- so how come the one you need, the one you know just has to be there, is so hard to find? Enter TiPb's new weekly feature where staff and readers alike sort through the App Store and help you find just the right App for That. This week, Sam asks:

I'm looking for an app that can pause recording video (like Android) for my iPad 2. Do you know of anything?

To see what we found for Sam, follow along after the break!

MovieCam [$2.99 - App Store link] claims to be the most powerful camcorder for the iPad 2. It comes loaded with 9 different effect presets and has recording options for DVD or HD quality. Additionally, MovieCam allows you pause video recording and continue it later - exactly what Sam is looking for!

Honorable mention: Camera Plus Pro [$1.99 - App Store link] is an iPhone app packed with all kinds of photography features, including the ability to pause video recording. However, since it's not a universal app, Sam will need to hit the 2x button on his iPad. This isn't the most elegant of solutions, but if he also has an iPhone, this may be an economical way for Sam to get the feature he's looking for on both devices.

Anyone else have any App for That suggestions for Sam? Let him -- and all of us -- know.
