Magisto, which provides the easiest way to create and share professional quality personal movies, today announced it has partnered with Japan’s leading mobile carrier, SoftBank Mobile. The company’s app, which was released in Japanese on iOS and Android earlier this year, now will be preloaded on Arrows A 202F, a Fujitsu Smartphone which debuted on June 28, 2013 in Japan.
“Japanese Smartphone users are among the most engaged and sophisticated in the world,” said Oren Boiman, CEO of Magisto. “We believe Japanese consumers will help lead the way in realizing the potential of mobile video as a mode of interpersonal communication. Our collaboration with SoftBank Mobile and Fujitsu provides a powerful platform to enable mass adoption of produced personal video.”
In addition, the company is further expanding its international presence by launching localized versions of Magisto iOS app in French, Spanish, German and Italian, and is also in the process of adding Chinese, Korean, Russian, Turkish and Arabic. Watch a Magisto video that was made in Japan.

It automatically selects the most compelling moments and, like an expert video editor, weaves them together to convey a story with customized styles and music. Magisto can be used across iOS, Android and the Web, and is the highest-rated video creation app in the Google Play and iOS App Stores.
