Nick Swinmurn, Co-founder & CEO, Threadlife
"Today, there are more mobile phones in the hands of everyday people -- with powerful HD cameras always in our pockets, we're collecting more and more of life's moments. Now we need an easy platform to capture and share them more broadly. With Threadlife we're changing the landscape and bringing users the best of photo and video, all in one easy to use app. We're excited to bring consumers everywhere something they've always wanted."
Ken Martin, Co-founder & CPO, Threadlife
"What was missing in traditional photo and video sharing apps, was a tool that could transform mobile video into a more seamless, collaborative way of capturing sharable, ongoing memories rather than individual 'movies' that require heavy editing. Threadlife's interface and technology simplifies the process for all users."
Threadlife is changing the way people capture and share life's greatest memories. The Threadlife iPhone app transforms your three-second video clips, which are called "stitches," into "threads" that bring together the moments of your life through evolving, sharable playlists. Unlike traditional video and photo sharing apps that are static, unstructured and difficult to share, Threadlife automatically compiles a fluid collection of your stitches and gets better over time. Founded in 2012 by Nick Swinmurn and Ken Martin, Threadlife is headquartered in San Francisco, Calif. Suddenly video is useful for the masses -- what will you thread?
