What is the history and popularity of the app?

Flixwagon was created to provide users with a live mobile video broadcasting service that anyone can use. The company is based in Tel Aviv, Israel and consists of around 10 individuals, including Chairman Arie Offner and Vice President Roi Ginat. The company received seed funding in January of 2007 as well as additional funding in January of 2009 and 2010.

What are the differences to other apps?

There are a number of websites that allow users to upload their personal videos to the web. What makes Flixwagon unique is the way the application also offers live, streaming video broadcasts. If the user has a 3G or WiFi enabled phone, they can create their own live video that is shareable all over the web.
