iOS videocam app that saves previous 30 seconds?

I'm looking for a video camera app that saves something like the previous 30 seconds when you hit a record button... But I'm not even sure what this functionality would be called to search for it.

I envision having the camera on and running capturing video, but it's purging out continuously... until you hit a button that actually saves from the moment the button is hit back to (ideally several arbitrary selectable times like 5, 15, 30, 60 seconds...)

Heard looks kind of like what I'm looking for, but it's audio only, and I really want video.

I feel like some of the dashcam or security cam apps might do this... but I'm more looking for something oriented towards sports or events.

If there's a better one for Android, please share that, I'm platform agnostic!

A DashCam App might work well. Also, you can get stand alone dash cams pretty inexpensively.

This is how dashcams work.

This is how dashcams work.

Dashcams record specified lengths of clips (usually, 1, 3, or 5 minutes) and record until the card is full and then overwrite the previous clips. They have an "emergency" button that will lock the current file to prevent it from being overwritten. Standalone dashcams usually have crappy batteries (really just meant to support the dash cam closing its current file when you shut off the car, and maybe for an emergency clip or two after an accident) and super wide angle lenses (from 140 to 170 degrees), which means if you were using it for sports from the stands, the players would be tiny, and you'd need to have it plugged into a USB battery pack.

AfterCam as jonny mentioned or something similar would seem like a better choice.
