About

Vidii is already used by thousands of people worldwide and has been featured by Fast Company and BuzzFeed.

A Video 4 Every Occasion!

We spend a lot of time touch typing on our iPhones, and we want to make communication much more fun. Much better. Think about it:

  • There has to be a more engaging way to text.
  • Does a line from a movie you remember express your feelings?
  • Is there a way to send fun movie clips?  
  • What if I just want to say "you can't handle the truth"
  • Why do I have to go to YouTube to fetch a movie clip?
  • Why can’t I send clips from my keyboard in-chat? I want to send some movie clips!

A Video 4 Every Special Announcement

We decided to build the funnest iPhone keyboard and now we want to add even more. 

To us, the keyboard is more than just a tool for typing and sending  messages. It’s how we connect with friends, family, coworkers, and a rapidly evolving world.

We believe movie clips have a wealth of untapped potential, which is why we've built  Vidii for iPhone. Now we want to expand it with your help. 

About Vidii

Everyone texts, and whatever we can do to make texting even more fun than it already is, we want to do it. It’s a form of communication that asks very little of us and delivers a whole lot in return. However it is that you text, you are more than likely familiar with “gifs,” the short video clips that you can attach to your messages. You send a clip that is like a gif (short video msg with sound) and it adds to the conversation, bringing the energy up and giving your recipient something to chuckle about. Vidii takes the gif concept and amps it up to another level, creating an opportunity for you to earn free movie rentals and give back to those in need.

Earn Free Movies

Just by using the gifs that you find through Vidii, you can earn free movie rentals. Yes, it is really that simple: you load up the Vidii app, send your friends our gifs, and rack up points that you can redeem to watch the movies that we offer through our platform.

Give Back

Just as exciting as what you get through Vidii is what you can give. Through our MoviesGive program. You can donate shoes to underprivileged kids whenever you rent movies at regular prices through our platform. Have fun and do good at the same time!

What We Need & What You Get

Currently, we are looking to raise some start-up capital in order to cover the costs of expanding Vidii to additional platforms and launching the MoviesGive program. We would like to offer Vidii on WhatsApp, Viber, Slack, Facebook, Skype, and Android, in addition to enhancing our gifs to serve the vision-impaired. To show our appreciation for your support, we are offering some exciting rewards, including Vidii-branded merchandise, beta access, and complimentary Vidii points you can use for free movie rentals!

How Have We Done So Far

Vidii has been a small project started by a few friends which has gotten some great enthusiasm and support but this video from some of our user testing gives a great idea of the type of responses we get:

Rewards II -  The Original Video EmoAI Powered Chat App  

Video messenger was the first AI powered chat app on the market. It accesses all of the Vidii clips and lets you send them to your friends connected on the app in a very special way. You know how you can immediately respond to your friends’ messages in many apps now with a haaha or emoji like when you long press a message received in Apple iMessenger? Well we created that! They’re called reaction receipts and our messenger was the first to offer the feature copied by so many others now except with one big difference. 

We use the camera on your phone to read your reaction to the message and match it to an emoji:

Play with
sound

We send that emoji in a custom read receipt message to let your friend know your reaction:

Then we actually take your reaction and based on your profile, recommend different ways you can immediately respond beyond just an lol. We give you some perfect Vidiis to send back depending on your likes and the conversation. Video messenger also has a nice feed which lets you browse all of the movie clips and scenes just for fun and of course all of the bells and whistles for learning about where the clip came from and the ability to rent it for watching now or later on any device simply by pressing the title.

We know adding another chat app to the list you use may not be ideal because you use the one you use with your friends. But we think it’s still a fun app for playing with the emotional AI capturing your facial expressions, and if you happen to have the perfect friends that want to amp up the conversation or even battle each other with snapback clips, it’s a fun app for that game using the AI suggested clip responses and to be able to “see” your friend's reactions. Here's the original promo link:  Vidii AI Messenger 


The Impact

Do fun and do good. What else is there? We want Vidii to make people smile and to give them a warm feeling in their hearts. Join us today as we make this a platform that affects people positively on multiple levels.


Other Ways You Can Help

In addition to making a monetary contribution, you can show your support for Vidii by sharing a link to this campaign on any social media platforms you use. Spread the word! We want people everywhere to know that Vidii is available, and your efforts will make this possible. We appreciate all your support, both monetary and non-monetary, and we thank you for taking the time to read about what we are doing. Also, let us know if you want to help by joining the team! We like having fun creating something fun so if you're into fun we can always use more help. 

We’ve been in the game as a bootstrapped and independent development outfit for years now. Unlike large software companies, we don’t have floors of developers and venture capital in the bank. But what we do have is a strong community of iPhone users who believe in what we’re doing.

Keyboards are much more complicated than they look but we got this right. At this point, we have an early beta version which means we’re 75% there. But it’s that last 25% that’s most challenging. With one big final push we can actually get this keyboard to Android as well as iOs users who want it as bad as we do.

For that to happen, we need to grow our team with experts in machine learning to help us build a more powerful engine for finding, screening, and selecting movie clips.

It’s important that Phone users are involved in shaping the future of the Vidii Keyboard. Through Kickstarter, we can build this together.

Risks and challenges

Behind every great app are greater challenges. Getting a keyboard with the functionality we want isn’t easy. We’re dealing with a lot of moving parts, from research, design, development, to usability and more. There are always setbacks when developing technology, however, one of the risks we foresee is meeting our delivery date of the updated version to the App store.

There’s also the approval process from the app store, but that’s nothing we haven’t already worked through in the past. It just means we might have to make a few changes before Apple approves our app.

We will keep our backers up to date with our progress and let you know if we encounter any setbacks.
