Cisco’s Flip Video(TM), pioneer in the shoot and share video camera category, has announced new social and video sharing capabilities with the launch of its latest FlipShare(TM) software as well as FlipShare Mobile apps for iPhone(R), iPad(R), iPod touch(R) and Android(TM) devices. Existing users will be notified of the available upgrade automatically in the month of April when they open the FlipShare application, or users can go to FlipShare.com (https://www.flipshare.com/login.aspx) to download it from April 4th.
The FlipShare software, which comes with every Flip video camera, now has enhanced video sharing capabilities. The software includes FlipShare Groups, a new and social way for consumers to share video more securely with friends and family. After creating a FlipShare Group users and their friends can access their videos from FlipShare.com and through the FlipShare Mobile apps that are now available for iPhone, iPad and Android. Within FlipShare Groups users can comment, read and post messages on each other’s videos and Groups.
Peter Groom, UK & Ireland Region Manager for Flip Video at Cisco, said: “Capturing precious moments is just the first step because as soon as you have the footage you want to share it with friends and family. We have always looked to provide the best user-experience to easily shoot, connect and share high quality video and the upgraded FlipShare software now makes it even easier for Flip owners. FlipShare Mobile apps extend the FlipShare experience to mobile devices and allow users to share videos and pictures with friends, family and colleagues whilst on the move.”
FlipShare continues to allow unlimited private video sharing via email without huge attachments filling up inboxes and now features an improved greetings card library including animated and even personalised card templates to create individual messages. Compatible with both Mac and PC computers, FlipShare users can now import their contacts directly from Gmail(TM), MSN(TM), Yahoo(TM) and AOL(TM) to create address books to share their videos with.
