Disney Kills another App after purchasing Company

vlix-logo

The Walt Disney Company has confirmed that the Vlix App has been terminated. Vlix was sort of like Instagram for video instead of photos until Instagram became Instagram for video itself. Hard to compete with that. Disney purchases its developer Spotmixer about a year ago and that team was largely responsible for the new Story.us app.

Add SpotMixer to LucasArts, Junction Point, Propaganda Games and Black Rock Studio (which is just a partial list) as app or game development companies that Disney purchased only to later shut down. This seems like a dangerous trend for Disney. Entrepreneurs who don’t want their babies to end up in the digital trash may start to avoid Disney’s advances if this trend keeps up. On the other hand the resources a company like Disney Interactive can bring to the table may just be too enticing for some developers to pass up.
