Video Curating App Soo Meta Adds Features to Online Storytelling

Will Hungarian startup platform become an essential tool for bloggers and journalists?

Video curating app Soo Meta might not be the next Vine, but it could democratize the Snowfall multimedia experience.

Unveiled Wednesday by a Hungarian startup, Soo Meta is a Storify-like tool for compiling and editing video. The app allows users to mix video with images, text, links, music, RSS feeds and interactive polls, with the results looking similar to a PowerPoint presentation.

Soo Meta was developed by the Hungarian-based startup Dragontape, which previously created an app for making YouTube-based mixtapes.

Aimed at journalists and teachers, the app is free save for the polling feature, which requires a premium account. Dragontape CEO Tamás Szakál said he thinks the platform will "[make] it a lot easier and faster for teachers, bloggers and journalists to create more engaging experiences."

Soo Meta is currently available via mobile and a WordPress plugin. Szakál said he wants to integrate the platform into smart TVs in the future.
