Vello Makes Sending Holiday Video Cards and Gifts Easier and More Personal Than Ever

Vello, saying hello with a video, launches global video greeting and gifting app for the Holidays

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Vello, the group video greeting app is preparing for the holiday rush and making itself available for worldwide audience just on time. Vello will be announcing their launch from their GMIC demo booth (T43) at Moscone center, San Francisco on Oct 22nd and 23rd. 

Starting today you can download Vello on the appstore, no matter where you are. The app, which has been limited to US audience only up until now, allows anyone to start a group video greeting, invite their friends to add a clip of their own, and then automatically stitches everything up into a heartfelt greeting masterpiece ready to be sent to your loved ones, along with personal e-gift cards.

"Vello was born out the current need for a more personalized and modernized way of sending out greetings to celebrate any occasion, big or small", Says Frances Ho, Vello's CEO. "Our lives are busy, and more people are turning to social media platforms to commemorate special events, but how impersonal does a Facebook 'happy holidays' feel? We want people to feel that by simply using their phone they can send something meaningful and personal. We want people to not just send a card, but share a moment".

Instead of sending a card, Vello lets you send a beautiful video greeting filled with real messages from a crowd of well-wishers. Anyone can start their video greeting and invite others to join and record a greeting of their own. Vello creates a collaborative video-card for the recipient, filled with familiar faces, real laughter, and greetings that come from the heart.  The initiator and all participants can also opt in to select any one of over 500 gift cards available and attach it to the greeting. With Vello, everyone can create and share a meaningful moment—together.

To get started with Vello simply download Vello on the appstore -  and start recording your personal greeting, then invite others to join the celebration. Once done, you'll be able to send the card at the desired date.
