Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - November 23, 2015) - Prodigy Ventures Inc. (TSXV: PGV) ("Prodigy" or the "Company") today announced the launch of iVideo 2.0, with full social video capabilities.
iVideo 2.0 offers users a compelling new social video experience. Users can check out what's trending, share creations, see who's nearby, follow their favourites and join in the discussion. iVideo saves all new videos to the iVideo Cloud, and to the user's Camera Roll or iCloud, for easy uploading to Instagram, Vine or other social media platforms. iVideo 2.0 is also a social video hub, with auto-uploading to Facebook (YouTube and others coming soon).
iVideo 2.0's unique design is built to enhance every aspect of shooting, sharing and watching videos. It has a 4-way split screen camera mode that can be easily accessed with a simple gesture. Live special effects filters can be pre-selected and changed while recording. In player mode, the split screen can play four videos at once.
iVideo 2.0 is initially available for iPhones and iPads from Apple's App Store. Apple Watch, Apple TV and Android iVideo apps are under construction. These platforms are expected to launch in December, 2015 and January, 2016.
In its first iterations, iVideo was the only split-screen video camera and special effects application in Apple's App Store. With almost no marketing effort, iVideo reached over 150,000 downloads in its first eighteen months as a free video camera app. It has a world-wide user base, and has reached the Top 100 list in the Photos and Video category of the Apple App Store in many countries.
Prodigy's CEO, Tom Beckerman, commented, "We are delighted to announce the launch of iVideo 2.0. The established apps in this space (Instagram, Vine etc.) all offer very similar user experiences. Our goal with iVideo has been to bring a fun, fresh and unique user experience to short form social video. We are very excited to see how users interact with our new platform."
