The famous video sharing website has recently released it’s own app for the iPhone.
According to Vimeo,
We’ve packed all the best parts of Vimeo into one app! Now you can upload, edit, manage and watch your videos right from your iPhone. Need some inspiration? Watch great videos based on your personal preferences or our curated channels.
Vimeo is the best way to get your videos online in the highest quality with great tools to share publicly or privately. There’s many reasons millions use Vimeo and Time Magazine voted us a Top 50 Website for the last two years running. Learn more at Vimeo.com.
Upon launching the app on your iPhone, you will be asked to log in or create and account. You will then be able to view all your own videos, likes, ‘watch later’ list, inbox etc.
Discovering videos is just a tap away. Just tap on Browse and videos will be presented to you in categories, just like those in the website. One of my favourite ones, “staff picks” cos they really pick those quality videos which gives a lot of inspirations.
Notice when you tap on a video, you get to view the video details page along with big PLAY button and comments section at the bottom. They lack of the social sharing features which is an upset because there is no way to share a video I like with my friends on Twitter / Facebook from the app. Hope they will add this in the next update.
Tapping on recordings allows us to record own videos, edit them in the video editor and upload straight from the app.
An easy-to-use video editor
• Capture video with focus control and grid alignment
• Combine, edit, and trim your videos
• Add transitions, titles, and effects
• Add music and recordings
• Control volume levels
• Save edited videos to your camera roll or upload directly to Vimeo
This is how the video player looks like. No audio controls on the screen. You have to use the physical volume buttons for that.
All in all, it’s a great app but could be improved. If you are a Vimeo user, get this app for FREE now!
