Animoto’s iPhone App Adds Video Clips and Photos to Create Custom Videos On the Go


New York, NY—Animoto, an online video creation service, unveiled a new version of its free iPhone app that now allows users to easily incorporate their favorite video clips, along with photos, to create polished videos in minutes on the go.

With the Animoto Video Slideshows app, video clips from an iPhone can now be woven together along with photos to create a unique, personalized video. Animoto transforms photos and video clips into pro-style videos by combining them with text, music and video-style templates that match any occasion. Animoto says its service will allow anyone to create and share personalized videos in minutes, from their iPhone or via their computer with the Animoto website. The videos can then be shared via e-mail, Facebook and Twitter.

“People are now capturing more video footage than ever, with 40% of all video being captured on smartphones, and they are looking for ways to share it, quickly and easily,” said Brad Jefferson, CEO and cofounder of Animoto. “With Animoto’s iPhone app, video clips are easily combined with photos, music, text and styles to be transformed into professional-looking videos.”

For 30-second videos the service is free, or users can upgrade to Animoto Plus within the app to create longer videos ($4.99 a month/$29.99 year).
