Vimeo to launch iPad app ‘later this month’

A preview of the new Vimeo app on iPad

Vimeo has announced it is releasing a brand new app specifically for the iPad ‘later this month’, along with a full iPhone app redesign.

The video-sharingsite, which released its iPhone app last March, has also released new apps for Android, Kindle Fire, and Windows Phone platform, The download for Android is available in the Marketplace and on the Amazon Appstore for Android.

A preview of the iPad app posted by tech site The Verge  shows a completely new design, various sharing options, and the built-in video editor that was introduced with version 1.0 for iPhone and iPod touch users.

Although the iPhone app was a longtime coming, it did include the impressive video editor to adjust media on the go and upload directly to the service without using a computer. As with the iPhone app, iPad users will be able to browse featured videos, liked items, subscriptions, videos saved for later and personal uploads.

On the iPad these features can only be enhanced with its larger screen, but once again Vimeo has not exactly rushed to bring it to the tablet.

The Verge also reports that Vimeo’s apps for Android smartphones and tablets and Windows Phone 7, use pretty much the same interface as iOS users, with both sharing the same ‘dashboard grid”’paradigm made popular by Facebook and several other iPhone apps.

The app for Windows Phone, is particularly impressive and instead of tapping through menus and videos as you do on iOS and Android, simple swipes move you through search, recommendations, groups, and channels. Each screen subtly varies thumbnails, type size, and layout, so that you can recognize your place in the app’s hierarchy at a glance. Like with iOS and Android, you can shoot and upload video from the Vimeo app, or upload videos that you’ve previously created, say The Verge.

For now, video editing is still an iOS-onlyfeature.
