Vimeo has just taken a big step forward with the introduction of version 3.0 of its iOS app. The changes seem to be confined to only the iPhone version, though. The new look is anchored by a tab-based design that is much easier to navigate compared to the older version. With the new feed view, users can now quickly view and browse videos. And videos can easily be shared natively via Facebook and Twitter. Users can even automatically share videos to those social networking immediately after uploading. Videos are now also uploaded in the background, letting users continue to browse for clips. Finally, iPhone users can manage videos in the watch later queue. Unfortunately the edit feature has been removed in the iPhone version of the app. But users can download and save active projects directly to the Camera Roll. Vimeo is a universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad. It can be downloaded in the App Store for free now. According to the app description, changes to the iPad version are in the works. While I’ve enjoyed the new YouTube app, I really like the new design Vimeo has unveiled. I’m looking forward to using it more very soon.
