SXSW 2013

AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Available today in the App Store, Takes is the new iPhone app that turns photos into amazing videos. Takes instantly transforms your photos into one cohesive video, with music, from a pre-defined library or from your iTunes collection.

“Why do we need to choose between taking photos and shooting video when we can do them both at the same time”

Takes effectively provides a brand new way for everyone to share their lives in full motion, by simply doing what they already love to do, capturing still images on their phones.

Takes: The New Narrative of Our Lives

According to NPD group, almost 30% of all photos are taken with smart phones. While photos are shared amongst friends, families and even with brands, photos remain static images. With Takes, you simply point and shoot to capture an image with the Takes app.Takes’ patent pending technology automatically transforms your memories into fun and engaging video clips, while still preserving the original photos. Takes stitches together your images into a beautiful, montage-style video for sharing, storytelling and fun. There’s no need for long video segments, editing, or overlaying music.

Takes’ Music Engine Technology: Soundtracks for Your Special Moments

To enhance and personalize your new video, choose from among filters and unique song selections that are powered by the Takes Music Engine. This extraordinary technology seamlessly matches the song you choose to the tempo and length of your video, resulting in a soundtrack that feels professionally produced just for your video. "Some moments last forever and some moments are just moments. With Takes™this is the first app I have ever seen that truly disrupts the junction of videography and photography," observed Internet pioneer, Jeff Pulver.

Once you’ve completed your Takes™ masterpiece, you can share it with other Takes users, post it to leading social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, or send it by e-mail. The entire process of creating a beautifully produced “Take” is just seconds.

You can view the Takes that your friends have uploaded, look through your own collection and even see which videos have received attention from other users, effectively creating a brand new community of individuals sharing their own unique content.

“Why do we need to choose between taking photos and shooting video when we can do them both at the same time,” stated CEO and Founder, Amit Man. “Now by pressing one button, your photos come alive and become a memorable video that your friends and family will treasure.”

Takes is now available for FREE on the Apple App Store. Takes also collaborates with leading brands, agencies, and music labels to help them develop new Takes-based, consumer generated content.
