Peak Systems releases Diptic Video, a new photo collaging photo app that enables people to make moving picture masterpieces

SEATTLE (Dec. 5, 2013) – Peak Systems, a web and mobile app development firm, today released Diptic Video, a mobile application that enables users to create dynamic video collages using video clips, still photos or a combination of both.

Diptic Video includes a host of new tools and features that give users unparalleled flexibility and control for making moving picture masterpieces.

“Providing video functionality is something we’ve wanted to do for a long time,” said Rob Reinhardt, director of mobile apps at Peak Systems. “With advances in technology and social networks now supporting video, developing a video collaging app really was a no-brainer. As usual, we’ve added a few cool effects that you won’t find in other apps, but the biggest differentiator with Diptic apps is always quality.”

Using Diptic Video, users can:

  • Choose from 35 different layouts to combine up to four video clips and photos;
  • Play video clips on repeat using the loop feature;
  • Put a fun twist on videos with four different playback modes;
  • Add a soundtrack by selecting music from an iTunes account;
  • Use simultaneous sequential playback to play video clips at the same time or one after another.

Diptic Video includes many other features that have been tailored to deliver a great user experience that is fast, easy and flexible, Reinhardt said.

“People love to make and share collages, and they love to share videos,” he said. “Because we developed one of the first mobile collaging apps, we have a keen understanding of what users want and deep expertise in delivering products that meet the market’s demands. We tapped into that experience and pedigree when we developed Diptic Video.”

This is the third new Diptic product that Peak Systems has released over the past three months. Earlier this year, the company released Diptic PDQ, a streamlined version of Diptic, one of the most popular and versatile mobile apps for making photo collages. Diptic has more than three million paid downloads since it was released in 2010. The company also released Diptic for Windows Phone 8.

Diptic Video is available worldwide from the iTunes Store and priced at $1.99 in the U.S. and accordingly in other regions. Other Diptic products are priced at $.99.

Time for a change: Look beyond the status quo with modern UX design

When we want to kick back and do some serious navel-gazing about design, we often wander over to Fast Company’s Co.Design site for inspiration and entertainment. That’s where we recently found this excellent little gem, parked amid headlines such as “How ‘The Simpsons’ Fixed Apple’s iPhone Keyboard” and “Watch A Girl Age into an Old Woman Before Your Eyes.”

Robert Safian, editor and managing director of Fast Company, presents a compelling list of 10 lessons for design-driven success and illustrates each of them with specific examples from corporations such as Samsung, Target, Burberry and Apple (‘natch!). It’s a fun and educational read, but what caught my eye was Safian’s summary of what constitutes good design. Continue reading
