Vimeo iOS app now available

By

This is an FYI for you iPhone and iPad2 users – vimeo now has a free app supporting their site, which allows very basic video editing, submission, and account management.

(If you aren’t a vimeo user, what is it you ask? Vimeo is a bit like youtube, it’s a free video sharing site, but it’s more targeted towards creatives and professionals. Most of the videos on my site are hosted at vimeo.)

The down side: if your device has no camera, you can’t use the app. Meaning original iPad owners are left out. This is pretty dumb. Just because the device doesn’t have a camera doesn’t mean you don’t have footage on it.

Case in point – a vimeo member takes their iPad, a camera and the camera connection kit (in a day pack, perhaps) to some photogenic place. User shoots some gorgeous footage (with something a lot nicer than a craptastic phone camera) which they want to upload… maybe to be reviewed while they are still on location, or for a family member to see, whatever. So they use the camera connection kit to load it to their pad, select the shots they want to share and then pointedly don’t edit and load the results to vimeo… they can’t

Fail!

But still, it’s nice that there’s an app for the iPhone. Cheers.
