Viddsee, a digital video company specializing in Asian video content, just launched its first mobile app.
Currently available for free on iOS, Viddsee’s app consists of the platform’s short films, fresh selections of which will be featured on a weekly basis. The app also lets users queue up videos and watch them offline in a way that won’t drain their phones’ batteries (by only downloading when it detects available Wi-Fi).
“Viddsee films are stories that consumers won’t get on TV,” explained Ho Jia Jian, Viddsee’s co-founder. “These are movies for the internet.”
In addition to Jian, Derek Tan founded Viddsee, which offers short film content on its digital platform as well as, starting now, iOS devices. Viddsee’s YouTube channel, which puts out new content every Thursday, currently has over 33,000 subscribers. Short films on the platform, which tend to run for about five minutes, range from animated to documentary and come from places in Asian such as Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Phillipines.
