Popular video service Vimeo has issued an update for the iOS application that adds full support for iPad, as well some other small improvements. The iPad is a necessary addition to Vimeo’s bag of tricks because it is a device tailor-made for watching media. Vimeo has admitted that 15% of their traffic comes from mobile, so it is impossible for them to ignore the iPad. It opens up a whole new world of mobile users to use their service.
The update also allows users to edit videos right from their iPad. It’s not a super robust video editor, but for a free application that is designed more for streaming video than creating, it is a nice inclusion and one that helps make this a tough application to resist. It allows you to add transition effects, as well as trim the video and add an audio overlay. With the video editor, they incorporated the ability to buy licensed music from the Vimeo Music Store, and add it to your videos easily.
You can also browse while you watch a video. This means you will always know what to watch next, without wasting time between videos trying to find the next thing.
The Vimeo iOS application is available for free from the iTunes app store.
