If you’re a Vimeo fan, and have been missing the experience on your Android or Windows Phone device, this is your lucky day. Vimeo has finally released an official app for Android (including Kindle Fire) and Windows Phone, which brings all of Vimeo’s main features to your mobile device.

While Vimeo for iOS has been around for quite a while, Android users had to make do with a bunch of unofficial apps, while Windows Phone users had no solution to speak of. This all changed with this new release. With the official Vimeo app, you can now browse and watch videos on your device without logging into Vimeo. If you log in with your Vimeo account, you can also like videos, comment, share, edit and add videos, and more.

If you don’t already have an account, you can register with the service from within the app.

The app is very responsive and easy to use (at least the Android version of it), and the layout is simple yet intuitive.

On Windows Phone, the app received a more artsy look, which goes with the general Windows Phone feel, and seems to also be able to play HD videos.

The app also includes Vimeo’s upload manager, to pause and resume uploads without having to start all over again.

Have you had a chance to try the new Vimeo app?

    This app is an odd one really as Vimeo aren't to my best koglwedne about sharing those off-the-cuff videos you film whilst out and about or in some drunken state but more about videos you have created, i.e. ones with artistic merit.I'm quite certain that from when I signed up ages ago there was something in their TOS essentially prohibiting the sort of videos that are probably going to be uploaded via this app. Then again maybe things have moved on.Over all though the app is pretty good and finally we have access to the sort of amazing videos which you can only find on Vimeo. Seems to be getting slammed in the Market though.

    "Including Kindle Fire" doesn't seem to be quite true. It's not available via the Amazon Appstore. Probably because of the hardware requiremnts of the app looking for a camera for certain features. It does, however, show up on the Amazon Marketplace, but not for the stock Kindle Fire, which it says isn;t compatible. It does seem to be available for people running CyanogenMod. This would rule out about 98% of the Kindle Fire userbase. Do you tech blogger people actually test any of this stuff out before you put paper to pen?

      Hi Angrydroid,

      As you can see, this is a news post, and not a review. When we write news articles, many times we have to rely on info the actual developers provide. I'm sorry if this information turned out to be inaccurate.

      I did test the app, of course, on my Android device, and it worked well. Unfortunately, I don't own either a WP device or a Kindle Fire, so I couldn't test the app on all the devices it should be compatible with.

      Rest assured that we test all apps we recommend in review articles, but this is not as practical with news items. These are more aimed at giving our readers new information, and are not recommendations.

      Hope this helped!
