Meet Blippy

We’re really excited to announce the launch of Blippy, available for free in the App Store.

Blippy is a simple app that helps you find animated GIFs, create personal messages and share them with friends.

We believe that the way we communicate with each other is undergoing a fundamental shift to become more visual. A visual message dramatically simplifies our ability to emotionally connect with the message and meaning. Yet the tools to create these messages are not yet simple. We built Blippy because we want to change that.

With Blippy you can select an animated GIF to spark your imagination and then type and customize a personal message. The creator tool is simple to learn, but lets you deeply express and personalize your content. Choose from our handpicked elegant typography. Then select the perfect color from Blippy’s palette to match the content and context of your message.

Once you’ve found the right GIF to express your emotion and written the perfect message we want to make sure you can share it wherever your friends are. That’s why we enable you to publish out to Tumblr, Twitter, or Facebook so that you can get your creations in front of as many people as possible. Separately we support native integration into iMessage so that you can directly text your friends with your GIFs.

We are just getting started with Blippy and we believe that we can help the world connect more closely, share more deeply, and smile more frequently with visual messages.

We’re thrilled to be opening Blippy up more broadly today and we’d love for you to let us know what you think. You can reach us anytime via email, Facebook, or Twitter.
