Say Goodbye to Fullscreen’s Video App, Viddy
According to a November 4 blog post from Viddy, the mobile app is no longer available on Apple’s App Store and Google Play, and it will be shutting down on entirely on December 15.
The blog post invites Viddy users to “download and archive” their content from the app via Viddy.com before it’s too late.
Viddy’s shutdown comes nearly a year after Fullscreen acquired it (at which time the app maker had rebranded to Supernova) for $20 million. The app lets users create 30-second videos that they can then edit and share with friends. It was formerly deemed the “Instagram of video” (before Instagram had videos).
Other Supernova apps, Epic and Clique, have also bid farewell. According to JJ Aguhob, co-founder Supernova, this is so that the company can “focus singularly on something new and exciting.” He doesn’t specify what, but describes that, in partnership with Otter Media, they’ll seek to “redefine entertainment for today’s youth” with their new venture.Tags: app store, clique, epic, fullscreen, Google Play, Mobile Apps, otter media, Supernova, Viddy
