Klipto Is The Next Evolution in Textless Texting - Is It The New GIF?

in Utilities (E)

[prMac.com] San Jose, California - Today Silicon Valley-based app developer Handsome Brain Entertainment announces their newest app, Klipto. GIFs are great at conveying simple emotional responses that go one step further than old school Emoji. But what if you want to say something specific? Sometimes a looping facial expression doesn't quite get your point across. Klipto hopes to add another layer by adding sound to a visual moment. That means users can communicate more while texting less. And in the tone that truly captures their sentiment. The keyboard app aims to "pick up where GIFs leave off", says CEO Paul Taylor.

GIFs were all the rage in 2015. Facebook and Tinder both started supporting them, the former citing over five million being sent each day on its Messenger app. And Riffsy's popular GIF Keyboard reports more than four billion views of their GIFs each month. Clearly GIFs have become part of the common texting language.

Kliptos take the best moments from movies, television,YouTube and Vines and turn them into sound bites that speak as a surrogate for the sender. "It's like having Amy Schumer - or Arnold Schwarznegger... or even Barack Obama - as a personal spokesperson of sorts, speaking directly on your behalf," says CEO Paul Taylor. "The new Klipto Keyboard offers thousands of short videos that allow you to express yourself using famous (or delightfully obscure) quotes. Want to text "Hey," "Thanks" or "LOL"?" There's a Klipto for that."

Don't just see it; hear it. So much of what people express is in the way they say it. Texts have always been limited by the fact it's virtually impossible to convey tone using just typed words. Emoji and GIFs help add some context. But to fully express an emotion, perhaps you need to hear it. Why add an "lol" or a smile-crying Emoji or a silent, looping, open mouth Julia Roberts when you can drop a 4 second clip of Jim Carrey bellowing like a hysterical horse? Reactions are just better with sound. So add a bit of volume to your texts. And when you get a Klipto in return, you'll literally be able to hear the uproarious laughter.
