Pixorial Launches Krowds Video for Android

New Location-Based Video App Brings Multiple Perspectives of Shared Events to Fastest Growing Mobile Platform

ENGLEWOOD, CO--(Marketwired - May 7, 2013) - Pixorial®, the video service that lets users transform shared experiences into their own personal stories, today introduced worldwide availability of Krowds™ Video for Android. Available now on Google Play, the free app lets people quickly discover, contribute and join in the shared video experience with full quality videos of any length. Krowds harnesses the power of video crowdsourcing by making it easy, convenient and nearly limitless. The new app completely changes the way consumers experience video by providing access to many different perspectives contributed by others at a shared event.

"Now that Krowds is available for both iOS and Android, almost anyone with a smartphone will be able to share video based on location and interests without limitations. We're thrilled that more people worldwide can use the power of Krowds to capture, share and curate personally relevant videos," said Andrés Espiñeira, Founder and CEO of Pixorial. "We expect the strong positive reaction from our iPhone version will translate to other devices as we continue to roll out more ways for consumers to participate in Krowds."

The announcement of the Android version of Krowds comes on the heels of Pixorial's debut launch of Krowds for iOS three weeks ago. Since the launch, the app has already seen significant user adoption and content contribution including:

  • People around the globe have created Krowds featuring a variety of interests, ranging from the Coachella music festival, to sci-fi and horror convention Starfest Denver, to Boston Red Sox games and even fishing vacations in Auckland, New Zealand.
  • In the first three weeks of availability, Krowds has seen a tenfold increase in adoption compared to Pixorial's existing mobile app.
  • On average, a user creating a Krowd invites six of their friends to join that Krowd.
  • Users of Krowds are located on nearly every continent, with Krowds being formed in the United States, Mexico, Spain, Saudi Arabia, India, Australia, Colombia, Chile, Peru, the United Kingdom, Canada, China, Israel and more.

Join the shared video experience today and start capturing 'Different Points of You' right away by downloading Krowds Video for Android from Google Play and for iPhone or iPad, from the Apple App Store.
