App introduction @TechCrunch Disrupt NY 2016 May 9-11
NEW YORK, May 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Excitement is building over the launch of VQuick, an innovative new mobile Video and Chat platform that will be unveiled at TechCrunch Disrupt NY 2016 (May 9-11), at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal, in Brooklyn, NY. The company’s Founder & CEO Richard Bezjian will host two presentations, on Tuesday May 10 at 11AM and at 2:30PM. Attendees at the conference will have an opportunity to enter to win a number of prizes by putting the VQuick app to the challenge and their imaginations in gear. Included among the prizes, two state-of-the-art drones.
In today’s competitive digital landscape, connectivity, authenticity and collaboration are powerful drivers. We’ve seen that in the rise of the “sharing economy” and in the success of open source platforms like “Wikipedia.” The “me generation” has been replaced by the “we-generation” who are passionate about being creative, original and being part of a community, and this is where VQuick excels. The app has wrapped a host of new capabilities under one platform designed to promote and empower the creative spirit of its users, provide higher control over content visibility, while meeting the demand for collaboration within and across different social networks.
VQuickers will be able to work together on projects whether they are next door or across the globe. When VQuickers are asked, What’s your story?, they are no longer limited to telling a local version of that story. They can collaborate with family and friends anywhere is the country or around the world to produce powerful storytelling content.
According to Mr. Bezjian, “We believe that the introduction of VQuick comes at an especially pivotal moment, as studies confirm that social video content consumption amongst Generation Z and Millennials continues to experience exceptional growth.” Both power user groups have been quick adapters of the new social platforms and are driving engagement, usability and creativity. They are also influencing developers like VQuick to keep up with their demands for enhanced applications.
A few of the new features that VQuick is introducing, which sets it apart from competitors like Snapchat, include the addition of the talent profile – more than a photo, it allows users to highlight distinct skills, experiences and qualifications. Higher control over content means that users can chose whom to share with, where to share and they control when and if to engage the self-destruct feature. In addition, VQuick is introducing the Stovies (Story Movies) monthly contest. VQuickers will have an opportunity to enter their Stovies under select categories (Animals & Pets, Culinary, Family & Kids, etc.), for a chance to win a variety of exciting prizes.
The VQuick app is now available for download. Be one of the first VQuickers to record, collaborate, edit and share “your Stovie”. For more on VQuick visit http://www.vquick.com.
