According to Nagisa’s CEO Yoshiyuki Yokoayama, they have developed the Android version in response to a high demand from user. He stated that they have manage to receive over more than 10,000 pre-registrations for the Android version of their teaser site.

 While most of their user are currently based in Japan for the time being, they do plan to begin a global expansion to coincide with the launch of the Android version. In addition to user from Hong Kong, the Philippines, and Taiwan, they’ve seen a gradual increase in downloads from Brazil, so they shall also begin aiming for the Latin American region for now on.

We’re planning to add a new feature to the iOS version of the Slide Movies app soon, which allows you to splice a movie clip with other clips. We’ll introduce a series of movie creation apps intended for several different usages rather than putting many features in one app.

They are aiming for over 5 million downloads with both version of the application, iOS and Android, by the end of 2014.
