SkipIt is dedicated to providing online consumers the wants and needs they deserve – letting you skip pre-roll video ads, making your life easier and saving you a lot of time.
In our third episode of “SkipIt Pioneers”, we would like to give thanks to Samuel Morse, who is a valuable Skipping Pioneer. The Yale College student started out as an avid painter and created some impressive artworks but underwent life changes. We’d like to think it was for the better.
After his painting career he would go on and be credited with inventing one of the most important inventions in our history: the telegraph and the Morse code. The Morse code would become the primary language of telegraphy in the world and is still the standard for rhythmic transmission of data.
How did his invention come about? After receiving a letter from a horse messenger that his “wife was convalescent”, Morse immediately left his home to go visit her. But by the time he arrived, she had already been buried. He grew tired of having to wait for important letters that could have been communicated immediately, making life easier and saving a lot of time.
At SkipIt, we’ve taken a page out of Morse’s book. We’ve invented our own technology to make your life easier, stress free and save you time. We made SkipIt, the modern day version of the telegraph, where you can skip pre-roll video ads while you view online videos – saving you the hassle of taking the time to wait for ads to be delivered.
Even though almost a century has passed since the telegraph and the Morse code were brought to our attention, we are still inventing technologies that will make our lives a lot easier and stress free, something Morse pioneered.
Hats off to Samuel Morse for being a Skipping Pioneer. Enjoy SkipIt and skip on!

In our second episode of “SkipIt Pioneers,” we bring you Karl Benz. The German engineer was always thinking about new ways to implement his great ideas, and one of those ideas was to create a gasoline-powered automobile.
As a young man, Benz grew tired of seeing horse-wagons carrying people around or watching people walk to places that would always take forever to get to. He knew if he could create a gas-powered automobile to skip all those scenarios, people would utilize it and get to their destination in no time. Why walk somewhere, when you have a gas-powered automobile, saving you precious time?
We understand how that can feel. That’s why we made SkipIt, the modern version of Karl Benz’s automobile, allowing you to skip digital video ads while everybody else is stuck walking through them.
We give many thanks to Karl Benz, another Skipping Pioneer, for changing history! Now it’s our turn, with your help, to change the industry. So go ahead and just SkipIt!
