Video Selfie App Dubsmash Proves To Be A Smash Hit
When Dubsmash founders, Jonas Drüppel, Roland Grenke and Daniel Taschik, created a new mobile app that lets you record a video of yourself, synced to a preselected sound clip, such as a well-known quote from a movie, they had an inkling they were on to something. But, after failing to conquer the iOS app store twice before, they couldn’t have known for certain that they had a smash hit on their hands.
However, just seven days after officially launching on November 19th 2014, they’d reached the number one spot in their home country of Germany. A success that would soon be replicated in 29 countries, including the UK, France and Holland.
