Vimeo announced its integration into Apple’s new iOS 7 operating system, enabling users to upload video directly to Vimeo from the Camera and Photo Apps with a single tap on their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
In addition to the iOS 7 integration, Vimeo is launching its new app for iOS 7, which introduces never-before-seen features and a completely redesigned Vimeo experience.
The new Vimeo App for iOS 7 includes:
• Instant Playback, Even Offline: The most recent videos saved by a member to Vimeo’s Watch Later or My Videos sections are available for instant playback, even offline. Users will be able to control the number of videos stored to best match their device capacity.
• Video Thumbnails: As users browse, videos begin playing directly inside the navigation and provide live previews of video content, providing a beautiful new way to browse content on the Vimeo app.
• Sharing via AirDrop: iOS 7 users can immediately share any videos on their device with other iOS 7 users via AirDrop.
“We are proud that iOS 7 users can now instantly upload videos directly to Vimeo from their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, and can’t wait for our users to try it out,” said Nick Alt, Vimeo’s Vice President of Mobile + Connected TV. “In addition, we’re excited to be first to market with an app that allows for the instant playback of videos, even if they’re not connected to the Internet – a feature that gives our members a taste of where we’re headed with iOS 7.”
The Vimeo App is available for free from the App Store on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch or at www.AppStore.com/Vimeo. Existing users can get the direct upload functionality as well as the new app by downloading iOS 7.
