Flipagram: More Than 1,000 Verified Musicians Added In 2015

Los Angeles-based video story app developer Flipagram said Wednesday that it added more than 1,000 signed, musical artists to its "Flipagram Verified" platform, letting those artists make their music available to Flipagram's users. Flipagram--which develops an app which lets users create musical slideshows using mainstream, popular music acts as their soundtrack--said over 800 of those artists joined in the second half of the year. Flipagram currently has deals with Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Music, Merlin and The Orchard, which lets users include the brief music clips as the soundtrack to their own, personal slideshows. Flipagram is led by longtime LA technology veteran Farhad Mohit. The company says that its users have created over 250 million "Flips" on its platform in the last two years.
