Flyr Launches Interactive Video Sharing App With $5M In Funding

Los Angeles-based Flyr, a new startup founded by Hassan Uriostegui and Brett O'Brien, the serial entrepreneur behind Viddy and Xdrive, said today that it has launched a new app which lets users create interactive, shareable videos. The startup--which says it is backed by $5M in angel funding--says its app algorithmically generates videos using photos, videos, and GIFs, in only seconds. Those videos can be exported to social media sites like Snapchat, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Apple Messages.
