Vimeo launched their official iPhone app last year and, since the launch, Android users have been anxiously waiting in the sidelines for their chance to take Vimeo for a spin on their mobile devices. Well now the wait is finally over. Yesterday at CES Vimeo launched brand new mobile apps for Android and Windows Phone 7 devices.
Joseph Schmitt writes on the Vimeo blog, “At Vimeo, we’ve seen first hand the increased demand for mobile video: traffic to our mobile site is up more than 100 percent since last year at this time. We’re not going to sit back in our beanbag chairs and watch the numbers go through the roof. Instead, we’re making it easier for smartphone-tooting citizens to enjoy Vimeo from anywhere through a sweet suite of new mobile apps for Android, Windows Phone, and, coming in a few months, for Apple iPhone and iPad.”
As I mentioned, the Android and Windows Phone apps were rolled out yesterday at CES and are available for free from the Android Market, Amazon App Store for Android and Windows Phone Marketplace. The revamped iOS apps, though they aren’t officially out yet, were also demoed yesterday. Sean Ludwig of VentureBeat reports that the updated iPhone app and brand new iPad app should be available by the end of the month.
