We're extremely hAPPy right now. We just released the latest version of our iOS app, and it's going to change your Apple device forever. Or at least until we release the next version. What makes v2.0 so special? For starters, it's our first-ever app that works on the iPad! For nexters, it takes everything about our previous iPhone app and upgrades it to the max.
Mobile traffic to Vimeo has exploded (technically speaking, it's tripled) since we first launched our iPhone app in early 2011, so we've renewed our focus to provide the best possible experience for Vimeo users on the move. Our big goal was to recreate our website vibe within the app in order to deliver all the neat-o discovery stuff that makes Vimeo fun to explore.
On an iPad, the new app has an especially cool browser that splits the screen and enables you to watch a video while browsing more suggested videos — it's a great way to keep the amazing vids flowing. In addition, you can watch videos in your Feed (or anywhere on Vimeo) and do all the liking, commenting and Watch Latering that you're used to.
The app also features a built-in video editor so you can create and upload videos at the supermarket, in a forest, or wherever you happen to be. The editor even hooks up to the Vimeo Music Store, making it easy to add a soundtrack.
You'd probably expect all of this crazy technology packed into a miniature space to cost billions of dollars, but we managed to make this app available to you for free. Download it now in the App Store.
Right now you're probably thinking, "Jeez, I wish I could see all of this free app's incredible features in one bulleted list." Well, check this out:
