Vimeo Update Improves Swipe Gestures And Search

Vimeo for iOS 7

Popular video-sharing website Vimeo has added another update to its official iOS app.

Up front, the single most prominent update relates to the in-app search feature — something that was initially absent when Vimeo made the jump to iOS 7, then restored but hidden, and now made constantly visible within the app. Since search is of vital importance on video sharing sites, this improvement means that Vimeo users can breathe a sigh of relief.

The update also adjusts the app’s swipe gestures, so that you can swipe to the left to add a video to the Watch Later category and download it to your device for offline viewing. Swiping to the right lets you share and like videos.

The new version of Vimeo also features some fixes — kicking notable pesky playback and networking bugs to the curb.

Vimeo can be downloaded free of charge from the App Store, compatible with all iOS devices running iOS 7 and above.

    Still thinks it’s a rather retarded version of once great app.
