Welcome to our NEW newest show: “Where’s The Money?”. It is here we try to decipher the way some of the more popular mobile applications and services will generate cold hard cash. The industry is full of promise but only a handful of companies will crack the buck. “Where’s The Money?” is where we put them to the test.
Today’s show is a little different from most “Where’s The Money?” episodes. Instead of looking at one individual app, today we tackle multiple apps trying to capitalize on the current ‘Instagram for video’ goldrush, including viddy and Socialcam.
Relavent questions Rob and I try to answer: do ‘Instagram for video’ apps have a business model, or are they looking to be acquired? If the latter, which app is most likely to get bought and by whom (YouTube, CNN, Twitter, etc.)? Finally, does the viral growth of applications signify anything other than the reality that there are a lot of smartphones in the world?
Rob and I do our best, but we’d like to hear what YOU have to say, so don’t hesitate to post your thoughts in the comments section.
