Well, that was fast, wasn't it? Viddy is definitely one of those apps that seems like it came out of nowhere with a user base exploding practically overnight, kind of like what we saw with Draw Something back in February and March.
But unlike Draw Something, Viddy is showing no signs of slowing down.
After just a couple weeks, Viddy managed to attract over 27 million users and is adding about half a million new users each day.
And according to Venture Beat, the creators of Viddy just closed $30 million funding round.
Things sure are looking up for this little video app.
Viddy's huge success kind of caught me by surprise, especially since I had experimented once with a similar app called Keek. I had been rooting for Keek, partly because it was awesome and partly because it's a Toronto-based startup. Unfortunately, it hasn't experienced the same viral success that Viddy has recently seen.
