We’ve all done it before, fast-forward a YouTube video to the punch line or shared a video with friends with the exact time on the video that made you laugh. We just want to get right to the point! Bloop it is the app that cuts through the crap. It allows users to edit and share favorite YouTube videos on their smartphone. The new version, currently available on iOS and soon for Android, is four times faster for users looking to share their favorite edited YouTube gems on the go.
“We’ve created an app that keeps getting better, faster, more fun and more interactive,” explains Bloop It co-founder Michael Gitter.
Focusing on the growing interest in mobile video sharing and creation, Bloop It launched earlier this year, and since has had over 10,000 downloads, according to Gitter. It allows users to edit YouTube videos down to 20-second clips and share them with friends and followers.
With a new colorful interface with a Vine-like feel, Bloop It now allows users to edit previously submitted bloops and upload them quickly, and it allows people to comment. Users can now easily share on different social media platforms. Users will be able to see how their created bloops are doing (like it or not) giving them bragging rights.
“We like the idea of time restrain because it forces you to be more creative and create something more compelling,” says co-founder Nihal Advani.
Since the launch of the previous version, the biggest demand according to Gitter, has been for the Android version of the app.
“That’s because Bloop It has attracted a younger user base [ages 13-25-year-olds] and although they have an iPad, they use Android phones.”
