Vodio Internet video app by Vodio Labs Ltd.
Free for the Apple iPad at the iTunes App Store
My wife’s fingers are practically welded to the TV remote. Rather than wrestle her for it, I find myself looking at a lot of Internet video. Now comes a particularly cool and clever way of finding online entertainment on an Apple iPad.
When you install Vodio, it asks you to choose the kinds of videos you’re most interested in--news, sports, movies and the like. Make your selections and up come a series of screens with attractive offerings in each category. Videos arrive from all over the Web--YouTube, of course, but also CNN, the Wall Street Journal, Yahoo, Politico, and lots of other venues. Tap an image and the video expands to fill the screen.
You can share what you’re watching with Facebook or Twitter friends. In addition, Vodio will track your social network activities to identify videos that reflect your tastes and interests, and deliver them to your iPad.
With its sharp, snappy user interface and excellent selection, Vodio is an excellent choice for casual browsing.
