Designing a Mobile Video App for Android

Different form factors, different versions of the operating system, challenges in accessing hardware acceleration for editing were just a few of the hurdles,” said Brett O’Brien, co-founder and CEO of Viddy. “Viddy is the only company to overcome these challenges and bring to market an app that provides a great user experience.”
With more than 1.3 million new Android devices activated each day, Viddy made it a priority to deliver a best–in-class mobile video app experience that maintained the intuitive design and user interface of Viddy for iOS, but still conformed to the myriad of Android smartphones and tablets.
