App News: Vimeo Acquires Echograph iOS App

Vimeo today announced the acquisition of Echograph, the popular iPhone and iPad app from Clear-Media. Echograph is a premium app that creates beautiful videos that look like animated GIFs. As part of this acquisition, Vimeo will offer the previously $2.99 app for free from the iTunes App Store.

The Echograph team will report to Vimeo's President Dae Mellencamp. App creator Nick Alt will transition from his role as Clear-Media's CEO to Vimeo's Vice President of Mobile, leading development across all platforms. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"We chose Echograph because it helps people easily create beautiful high quality video content," said Kerry Trainor, Vimeo CEO. "That, with Nick's proven track record of building innovative video apps made it a perfect fit for Vimeo."

"Vimeo to me is the most innovative video platform that empowers its users to share quality content," said Echograph creator Nick Alt."I'm very excited for our teams to come together to take Echograph to the next level and develop a new fleet of amazing mobile video apps."
