Singapore’s Viddsee launches Android app

Singapore-based short film streaming service Viddsee is launching an Android version of its app, expanding its offering from iOS and web-based platforms.

Viddsee showcases short films and web series from across Asia and the Middle East, with new titles added daily on its social, web and mobile platforms. The service has more than 2 million monthly unique users, mostly based in the Philippines, Taiwan, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore.

The new Android app is available for free on Google Play or via www.viddsee.com/android. It enables users to sync films across desktop and mobile devices, receive personalised weekly film recommendations and view films in offline playback mode, with automatic downloading while on Wi-Fi networks.

“Asia is a mobile-first market with an appetite for high-quality cinematic content,” says Viddsee co-founder Derek Tan. “We are proud to showcase the best talent and creativity from this region and to continue engaging our community of users and viewers in Asia with Viddsee.”

Viddsee has built up a catalogue of more than 1,000 short films and has official channel partnerships with regional film schools and film festivals such as Hong Kong’s ifva, Indonesia’s XXI Short Film Festival, Cinemalaya in the Philippines and Thailand’s Thai Short Film & Video Awards.
