Sketch’d

LIFERS!! IM NOT SURE IF YOU REMEMBER BUT,A WHILE BACK I INTRODUCED YOU TO A HIGH SCHOOL KID FROM ATL NAME CHRISTOPHER JONES,THAT WAS CREATING HIS OWN IPHONE APPS,HE SIGNED UP HERE,WE MET,STARTED KICKING IT AND THROWING IDEAS AROUND,THEN ONEDAY HE INTRODUCED ME TO THIS AND HIS NEW PARTNER

Thought of and designed by two design-driven teenagers, aged 15 and 19 years old respectively, Sketch’d is a new breed of a social networking app. The app enables users to draw anything they would like with precision, animate it instantly with their fingers, and share with their friends and family as a video. The user can also take a photo and turn that into a drawing.  What makes this app different from the other social networking apps out there, is that it streamlines the process of animating a drawing. The user simply selects a certain number of animation points (similar to large gaming studios), drags the points onto certain parts of the drawing, and moves them around. The app records the motion and then turns it into a video. This video is shared inside the Sketch’d network and can be shared with other social networks such as Facebook, Youtube, Vimeo, etc. Anyone who loves the app Draw Something, Instagram, or Vine will love this app.

Dinner With @LynnTilton

Lifers! I just had dinner with Lynn Tilton and about 20 of San Francisco’s youngest and smartest entrepreneurs, “Lynn Tilton has been recognized as the most successful woman in U.S. industry. She is arguably the wealthiest self-made woman in the US (depending on who you ask – its her or Oprah), owns 74 companies, and employs 140,000 people.”#allblackandbling #SF@clevy @sosodef @global14
