What is CrowdFlik?
CrowdFlik is the PATENTED crowd-sourced mobile video share and collaboration platform that makes capturing, creating and sharing mobile video better than ever. CrowdFlik is free and easy to use. Anyone can use the CrowdFlik app when they are capturing video on their smart phone. Just open the app and start filming.
How much is your app?
$ FREE – CrowdFlik is available for free for iPhone and iPad in the App Store and for Android 4.2 and above in the Google Play store.
Where does the name come from?
Pretty simple. People want to share and collaborate in their mobile video experience. The result is better video for more people. The result is Crowd Powered Video. CROWDFLIK.
How did the idea come about?
We love concerts. We love sports…and parties and – well we love just about any event where lots of people like to have fun. Turns out we all like to film these events with our smart phones. Being believers in the power of the crowd it became clear to us that we needed to create a simple way to synchronize and organize the streams of video to allow users to easily create edits using the best angles. We created CrowdFlik to solve four simple problems:
- 99% of all smart phone videos ends up getting deleted – even if they had moments of greatness. CrowdFlik allows users to share their video so that everyone gets to make their own edits from the shared content. All of the best angles.
- Editing video a difficult and time consuming. CrowdFlik makes it easy to create new videos from the shared video of an event. It is as simple as tapping the segments you like and hitting save. CrowdFlik seamlessly sews the segments together into a high quality video that you can download or share.
- Even if you are one of the rare chaps who know how to use iMovie or Final Cut or any of the video edit platforms it is still difficult and time consuming to arrange and line up (synchronize) videos from multiple devices. CrowdFlik has the patent on automatic synchronization of mobile video making it an automatic process.
- Most uploading experiences are clumsy and take forever - we've optimized the experience to be fast and efficient.
What happens to the video that I capture using the CrowdFlik app?
The CrowdFlik app shares a copy of the video you capture so you will still have everything on your phone. You can change that in your settings if you only want to capture video and share it to CrowdFlik.
Can I share the videos I make?
Yes. With CrowdFlik you can share videos on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram and other social media sites. You can also text and email videos. Sharing a CrowdFlik video is done by sharing a link to the video. Soon you will be able to download videos which will enable you to upload videos to YouTube, Vimeo, etc.

Who can see my videos?
All videos are public by default which means they are visible to anyone using CrowdFlik or on the CrowdFlik.com website. If you choose to make your account private, then only people who follow you on CrowdFlik will be able to see your photos.
Can I upload my videos to YouTube?
The default setting is that we save all the videos you capture with CrowdFlik to your camera roll. You can override this selection in your settings menu.
Does CrowdFlik work with GoPro?
Not yet - but we think that we would make a great team!! GoPro is a very exciting company that is focused on their great cameras and the action lifestyle. The GoPro edit and share platform is a lot like iMovie and takes a while to learn how to use it and even longer to organize video from multiple GoPros to make multi-cam edits. With CrowdFlik you would be creating and sharing multi-cam videos minutes after skiing, diving, racing, etc.
This seems like a great idea for weddings?
We think so too. In early 2016 we will introduce our special features for weddings.
This seems like a great idea for bands?
We think so too. In early 2016 we will introduce our special features for bands.
This seems like a great idea for security and police cameras?
We think so too. We have formed a separate company to and are working with a few leading companies in the security industry to license the patent to them so they can be more effective with the video that they capture.
