Socialcam #1

#1 baby

Socialcam, our spin off company from Justin.tv, just hit #1 on the App Store Free charts. For those who don’t know, Socialcam is the easiest way to customize and share your videos from your iPhone.

18 months ago Michael, my Justin.tv cofounder, saw that there would be a need in the market as smart phones began to replace all your other electronics, including your hand held video camera. After skunkworks-ing Socialcam internally at JTV, we spun it off as a new company with founders Michael, Guillaume and Ammon.

Michael had a strong conviction around building products by designing experiments, looking at the data and iterating. He also had a vision around unlocking the video camera that exists in everyone’s pocket today. It’s awesome to see that passion and dedication to process pay off today. I couldn’t be more proud of the team.
