When Twitter released Version 5.4 of its iOS app, the microblogging service cut off video-uploading access from Mobypicture, Vodpod and Posterous. However, social video community Telly (formerly Twitvid) – along with YFrog, YouTube and Vimeo – survived, and now it’s venturing into Android territory.
Today, Telly, which provides an online platform for people to create videos, share, and find them via social recommendations on Facebook, Twitter, the Telly community, and through trending videos, is releasing an app for Android tablets.
Through NFC (Near Field Communications) Beam Sharing, Telly users can now bump Android tablets to share videos with friends.
Features of the Android tablet app include:
• Layout for browsing, creating, and finding videos through the “My Telly” feed, optimized for the Android tablet;
• The carousel view in the My Telly feed, which lets users watch, share, or skip videos; and
• Tagging of friends in videos you find or create using @mentions.
“We’ve designed our Android tablet app from the ground up with casual mobile video discovery in mind. Features like Telly’s carousel view and our social My Telly feed have changed the way people watch video on mobile devices, and we are thrilled to bring features like these to Android tablet users,” said Telly CEO Mo Al Adham.
