LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Flipagram (www.Flipagram.com), the video story network, today announced Flipacam, a specialized in-app camera optimized for quick, easy creation of Flipagram video stories (Flips). With Flipacam, users can quickly shoot and temporarily capture an ephemeral sequence of photos and videos, choosing only the ones they want to combine with their favorite music and effects to seamlessly create an amazing Flipagram story. All of the extra photos and videos are automatically deleted, which opens Flipagram up to many more spontaneous and creative uses.
“Rather than sharing a single highlight photo or short video clip, people increasingly want to tell a whole story with many photo and video moments,” said Farhad Mohit, co-founder and CEO of Flipagram. “Our new Flipacam makes it incredibly easy to capture such moments as they’re happening and quickly turn them into flips without having individual photos and videos taking up unnecessary space on people’s devices.”
Flipacam’s unique functionality includes:
- Tap for photo and hold for video to allow rapid sequential capturing of photos and video moments
- On the fly curation of desired photos and video shots so only the perfect moments are included
- Zero footprint creation, with automatic deletion of extra photos and videos after the session
- The ability to mix existing photos and videos from all sources with those shot in session
- Free music via integrated access to Flipagram’s comprehensive catalog of millions of popular music clips
- Timer in photo and video modes to allow for hands-free capture
By enabling effortless photo and video capture in a single camera mode and allowing for real-time combining of existing media and free popular music clips, Flipacam opens new possibilities for amazing creative visual storytelling that was never before possible.

Bigger, Better, Video Stories with a Beat
Flipacam is the latest of many transformative features recently added to differentiate the fast-emerging video story network. Earlier this year, Flipagram launched Direct Messaging, Full-screen Flips and 60-second Free popular music clips to turn Flipagram into the first video story network operating at scale, helping tens of millions of people each month share amazing immersive video stories of all kinds.
Since the launch of its free app in late 2013, nearly 200 million unique users, mostly teens, have created hundreds of millions of Flips, comprising many billions of photo and video moments, that have been shared all over social media sites. Now, a little over two years later, the company estimates about 1.5 billion daily views of photo and video moments in Flips across the social web, as of December 2015, with an increasing percentage of views occurring on Flipagram’s own growing network.
“Moments pass, but stories last,” said Mohit, “and Flipagram is increasingly the way people are choosing to turn ephemeral photo and video moments into life’s wonderful stories -- immersive, personal, mini-movies set to your favorite music -- that can be relived time and again with friends and followers.”
Everyone has stories worth telling. Flipagram’s mission is to give everyone the power to create and share amazing immersive 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. Flipagram is fully licensed to allow music use in its videos via agreements with top record companies including Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Music, Merlin and The Orchard—and music publishers, including Sony/ATV Music Publishing, Universal Music Publishing Group, BMG, Warner/Chappell, and the NMPA.
