Momentage Press Release
Momentage App Reinvents Photo, Video Sharing on Social Media Giving Users the Ability to Craft and Experience Moments
Use tools in the app to edit photos, videos and create SoundImages then showcase your series with followers
Momentage, a new mobile application, is taking the constraints off of photo and video sharing on social media networks. Momentage is a new social media platform where users can craft and showcase a “moment” in its entirety. Photos, videos and SoundImagesTM can be taken and integrated using tools within the app, to showcase a more artistic expression of reality and an ongoing experience.
There are many instances in life we want to express and share. Momentage helps the user share a story. To craft a moment, users can select and edit photos and videos, or shoot photos and record up to 20 seconds of video. Additionally, a photo can be enhanced with 30 seconds of audio called a SoundImageTM. Once photos and videos are selected to be in a moment, users can rearrange them by dragging and dropping each piece of media into a different area of the layout. A moment can be as simple as capturing an amazing beach party with a single photo. Or, a moment can be as rich as sharing multiple videos of that beach party combined with photos of friends preparing food, a sunset snapshot and a SoundImageTM of the crashing waves.
“When starting Momentage, we took into consideration that we weren't happy with how current apps all regarded photos and videos as singular, individual posts when in fact, many of these photos and videos are a part of the same moment. What we also didn’t like was over-posting and spamming feeds with six singular posts,” said Frank Kuo, co-founder and CEO of Momentage. “Momentage is easy to use, but infinitely richer than other social networks; it is a creative tool for crafting moments. The experience is more than viewing a photo; a post can be made interactive and more artistic with video or sound, editing tools and by manipulating the structure of how the moment appears to viewers as a final product.”
Users have the freedom to share a singular moment in time, or a stretch of time, with one or several photos, and they can add to or edit each moment in the future. When a moment is shared, followers experience it as a series they can interact with by enlarging photos and playing video or SoundImages. Moments can be made public for general viewing by anyone on the app, or shared privately with just one person or a select group of followers. Momentage users can also interact with their followers to see who liked each moment and respond to comments on moments.
Momentage is currently available for iPhone and can be downloaded from the App Store. Fore more information, visit: http://www.momentage.com.
