A new streaming video service launched today called Whatifi, that's exclusively for mobile devices and offers only interactive (choose-your-own-adventure) content. It's currently available only for iOS, for free. The content is in vertical format. At various points, viewers can make a choice between two options by swiping up or down, to send the story in one of two directions. There's also a watch party mode, where friends can watch and vote together. The app includes a messaging feature and helps you keep track of all the different endings. The service is launching with two shows, each of which takes 10-15 minutes to watch, but can easily be re-watched with different choices, for up to 30 hours of total content. The company has $10 million in funding, and is currently soliciting scripts for new interactive content with a contest offering $35,000 for winning scripts. Asked about the Android platform, a company rep said "We don't have anything to share on an Android version at this time."

So tired of the only for IOS or only for Android

I don't understand why companies play the favorites game with either IOS or Android, instead of just making the app work on both. Not everyone has an IOS device, same goes for the ones who only release to Android. Makes no sense.
