The Viddy community has been growing exponentially since its launch early last year- with over 40 million views last month alone. Viddy is an iPhone/iPad app (coming to Android this Summer!) that allows you to post and watch 15 second video clips. The app allows users to add titles, tags, and geo-locations via Foursquare and easily share each Viddy clip on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Tumblr, email, text, or a personal website.
Just like Instagram has a bunch of filters to alter your pictures, Viddy has an array of “production packs” to enhance your videos. With the touch of a button, you can have Kermit the Frog dancing through your birthday party or, with the latest add-on, turn ordinary clips into a “5 o’clock” music video with T-Pain’s signature “Steam Punk TV” effect. The multi-platinum, Grammy Award winning rapper is excited for the launch of his production pack, stating:
Viddy lets me connect with my fans in a whole new way through mobile video. 15 seconds at a time… I hope people download my new pack, capture cool video clips and share with the world what they’re doing at 5 o’clock in the morning.
T-Pain on the tour bus:
T-Pain is not the only celebrity who has happily jumped aboard the Viddy train! Bill Cosby has been sharing 15-second words of wisdom since the app was launched early last year. The day he started following me was probably the highlight of my life! Before T-Pain, The Muppets, Snoop Dogg, and Incubus have had partner Production Packs on Viddy. Jamie Kennedy, Giuliana Rancic, Warren Sapp, and Linkin Park are some of the others who have joined Viddy as another platform to connect with their fans.
If you’ve ever watched a lengthy YouTube video and wished you could get back that 15 minutes of your life, Viddy is the solution for you! So, what are you waiting for? Get to the app store, download the app, and start gettin’ Viddy with it!
