Video discovery platform Vodio has updated its iOS app to make it available on iPhones, the Israeli startup Vodio Labs announced today. In addition, the new version is also an upgrade ...
Vodio has been described as a ‘Flipboard for videos.’ Thanks to its free app, users can browse videos from different sources in one place. According to the startup, its users have watched a quarter of a million hours of video and generated over two million video plays since its launch.
Users can follow pre-built thematic channels, they can also connect Vodio with their social networks, and the app will aggregate videos shared by their friends for easy browsing. Yet, it is worth noting that sharing is optional, and turned off by default.
While the new app shares many characteristics with the previous iPad version, it also includes new features such as ‘Highlights’, which the company describes as Vodio’s equivalent of Flipboard’s Cover Stories. In practical terms, this new channel helps users find relevant content across all their channels, feeds and interests, by pulling all the videos that Vodio’s algorithm predicts they will enjoy.
