RJI Futures Lab update #89

Video apps from Fly Labs and micropayments via Blendle


PART 1: Simplified video creation from Fly Labs

While most mobile video editing tools mimic desktop editing software, a startup called Fly Labs recently released two video apps – Fly and Clips – whose interfaces are more like a typical iPhone app. Their goal is to make creating video with a smartphone easy enough for anyone. We visit with founder and Chief Executive Officer Tim Novikoff and get a look at the apps in action.
