LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Flipagram (www.Flipagram.com), today announced the next generation of its personal video storytelling app and network by shifting to fully immersive video storytelling. Flipagrams (Flips) now feature full screen photo-video editing, creation and browsing, along with up to 60 seconds of free music from tens of millions of licensed song clips, and a set of new video filters to help ordinary people tell amazing video stories of all kinds.
Together these changes allow for bigger, better and more engaging mobile video stories by the tens of millions of everyday creators and thousands of interesting people on the Flipagram network. This new release follows the company’s recent announcement that the Flipagram network now counts more than 1,000 verified music artists as part of its rapidly scaling community.
“With full screen video we have dramatically improved the Flipagram experience, so people everywhere can immerse themselves in the sights and sounds of one another’s personal video stories and get as close to being there and reliving the moment as possible,” said Farhad Mohit co-founder and CEO of Flipagram. “Now, the more than 100 million unique people all over the world who have created at least one Flipagram and all those who will be joining our community in the future, will be able to easily create and share Flips that are as immersive as a theatrical movie, complete with awesome soundtracks of their choosing.”
Many in Flipagram’s growing community of artists and influencers have eagerly welcomed full screen video including EMM, Guster, Craig Morgan, April Kry, Tim White, Martine and many others, as well as social media talent and budding Flipastars like Jacci, Jørgen Lauvsland, 2 Dads Plus 4 Kids, Breanna Wilson, Catalina Hager, Danielle Hutchins, Sam Ciurdar, Yao Lei and Malynda Hale.
Improved Features for Video Storytelling that Anyone Can Use
Flipagram’s new features are designed to help people of any skill quickly create and share an amazing personal video story, so they can express themselves beyond just a silent photo or single video moment. New Flipagram features include:
- Simplified full screen photo-video creation and editing flow
- Improved integration of saved Snapchat and Instagram moments
- Full screen browsing that immerses viewers in one Flipagram story at a time
- Up to 60 seconds of free music allowing for more varied narrative uses
- Ten new filters to enhance the look and feel of Flips
Bigger, Better Personal Video Stories with a Beat
With the rise of its video story network in early 2015, Flipagram became the first major social network to incorporate music into its core offering, where up to 60 seconds of music acts as a social preview, as well as the perfect soundtrack for each Flip personal movie that can be shared and relived. Now by embracing full-screen video, Flips are literally bigger and better than the posts on other photo or video sharing apps where single moment highlights are the norm, videos have to be shortened and squared off, and where music is an afterthought. Flipagram full screen now also seamlessly complements ephemeral messaging apps where photos and videos are immersive, but where even the best moments of your life have to vanish at the end of a single day.
“Flipagram continues to evolve as the place where people of all kinds come to create or discover fun, inspiring, interesting stories to share privately with friends or with a growing community of people who know that while moments pass, the stories last,” said Mohit. “We want to be the place where all the world’s interesting, creative people and stories can live on and be enjoyed time and again.”
Everyone has stories worth telling. Flipagram’s mission is to give everyone the power to create and share amazing personal video stories with music that can inspire, entertain and inform. Flipagrams (Flips) are easy to create, fun to consume and by allowing photos, videos and music to tell the story, Flips transcend language, giving people all over the world the ability to share their own stories and to have a powerful voice. With tens of millions of users monthly worldwide and growing, Flipagram is a go-to platform for musical artists, influencers, brands and millions of ordinary people looking to tell stories in an authentic way that resonates and inspires action.
