We first wrote about startup Vyclone in May 2012 when it launched: a social video app that got people to shoot footage at an event on their smartphones, before using its tech to combine their video into a multi-angle clip.
It had a big focus on music, working with several artists to get fans shooting videos at their gigs. However, the app never quite took off, and now its creators have announced that it is shutting down on 22 July. “We’re signing off proudly with our heads held high. We built something that tried to shift the way people used video. We trail-blazed collaborative movie-making. We created multi-angle magic,” wrote the Vyclone team in a farewell blog post. “Perhaps, one day, we will rise again and together cover all the angles once more.”
