Vimeo, one of the first video sharing sites to support HTML5 video alongside YouTube, has finally released its official iOS application. The free Vimeo app lets you upload, manage and watch your Vimeo clips, as well as the videos based on your personal preferences or Vimeo’s curated channels.
You can upload your raw footage in HD or SD to the cloud or download Vimeo clips to the camera roll. More features in iTunes release notes below the fold. And now a shocker: The app packs in a simple video editor that lets you record, trim, combine and edit your clips with transitions, titles and effects plus background music and recordings with control volume levels.
Advanced Vimeo capabilities are supported as well, allowing you to edit a bunch of metadata, share clips via social networks, like, comment and add videos to your Watch Later queue.
In short, it’s the whole widget in a pocket-sized format – and they’re already promising future updates with more features, music and effects.
The 20MB download requires iOS 4.0.1 or later and is compatible with the iPhone 3GS and 4, fourth-gen iPod touch and iPad 2. Unfortunatelly, we couldn’t find out at press time anything about iPad 1 compatibility.
