From the beginning Squrl has been about building a place where you can discover, experience and curate online video. Over the past few months here at Squrl we’ve been brainstorming, experimenting and talking to users about ways to improve Squrl, realize these goals further and bring you great video every day. We are now feverishly working on our 2.0 version. In the meantime, we wanted to get an update into the store that improves the existing Squrl experience and will be critical to making our 2.0 a success!
Download the new update in the App Store and you’ll find:
New Viewing Experience on the iPad
Play a video in the updated iPad app and you’ll access a new and improved viewing experience. The new player has smooth, consistent controls across all the video in Squrl.
Ever since Squrl began to take shape our team has talked about how cool it would be to turn your favorite video-heavy blog in to a playlist on Squrl. With this release we’ve made it happen—check them out here. Are there any blogs you want to see as Squrl playlists?
Switch from Galleries and Collections to Channels and Playlists
Squrl is a tool for discovering new video and in an effort to make our language reflect this we’ve updated our organization labels. The Channel has replaced the Gallery and the Playlist has replaced the Collection.
Finally we have fixed lots of little issues to generally improve Squrl.
