Vimeo’s iPhone App Gets Better Navigation, Background UploadingBy: Josh Wolford - November 28, 2012
Vimeo has just launched a new iPhone app that streamlines navigation and sharing while making uploading faster and simpler as well.
“The new app is simply the best way to watch, create and share Vimeo videos on the go. We redesigned it to be smarter and more intuitive so you can do what you want, when you want, really easily. You can take your feed on a road trip (just not while you’re driving), relax in the park with your Watch Later queue, or catch a Staff Pick or a friend’s video while in line for lunch. When the lunch line explodes into spontaneous song and dance, as it often does, record it and upload it right from the app. You can even watch more videos while it uploads,” says Vimeo.
Uploading has gotten a lot faster with this update, as users can let their videos upload in background while watching other videos or adding information to the upload.
On the browsing side, there’s a new Feed view and a tab-based design that replaces the old grid-style navigation. This makes it much easier to find videos via an Explore tab, or watch videos from your feed, “watch later” queue, or your “likes.” Sharing has also improved, as users can now natively share videos they like via Facebook, Twitter, or email.
Of course, Vimeo says that everything is now “super fast.”

Recently, Vimeo launched an all-new Creator Services Suite which allowed video creators to add a tip jar to their videos. Also on the horizon over at Vimeo: Pay-to-view videos.
