The increasingly popular Shutta app is preparing for their Android release
Shutta, the video-to-still capture app, is announcing their upcoming release for Android devices after their success with Apple devices. The app currently allows iPhone users to take high quality stills with their devices after shooting video, allowing for easier shooting those hard to capture action shots.
The indie app that started in 2015, was selected by Apple as the Best New App coming out of Southeast Asia. The founders, James Shimell and Barbara Ximenez, are both thrilled for the expansion. “What excites us the most about releasing the app for Android is that our users can now connect with all of their friends,” said Barbara, “Regardless of the device that they may use.”
The majority of their users, 18%, are based in Vietnam with a diverse audience in the United States, Asia, and Africa as well.
The app has been downloaded almost 500,000 times on iTunes since their release, and the developers are gearing up for their release onto Android. Shutta allows for users to shoot via the app or upload previously shot videos, and then select the perfect frame that encompasses all the action.
Shutta has proved extremely popular at sporting events, and provides a simple solution to capturing the best events for fast moving subjects from football, snowboarding, basketball, and Formula 1 racing. The mobile phone user takes a video and then reviews the film and chooses which frame they would like to turn into a picture.
Shutta also developed popularity through their Shutta Missions in which users can submit their photos on the app to win a variety of prizes. The current missions include an Outdoor Adventures mission, ending Monday May 9th with a Polaroid Cube+ as a prize. There will be a big photo contest corresponding with the Android release.
