Looking for a way to sort through the clutter of the extensive number of videos uploaded to Facebook? Users of the iPhone and iPod Touch may have an answer in the form of iFB Video Player.
The app, available via Apple’s App Store for 99 cents, enables users to turn their iPhones into Facebook video portals. You can:
- Create playlists of video clips posted on your Facebook profile;
- Watch those videos directly via the Facebook homepage, in HD quality, without the need to browse;
- Sort out videos by individual friends, and create play lists for individual friends; and
- Perform all of those actions with a single tap.
The iFB Video Player was developed by Webelinx which also released a combined photo and video organizer for Facebook last month.
Our take: iFB Video Player seems to be a useful app, but for a limited audience. For Facebook users who want to view videos via their iPhones or iPod Touches, the organization and one-touch functionality are huge benefits.
But as popular as video sharing is on Facebook, do people go to the social network just to watch videos — and on a handheld device, no less?
