Who doesn’t like great iPad apps? At iPad Insight we definitely do. With that in mind, we offer up a quick review of an excellent iPad app, or a few great iPad apps, here each week.
Our weekly picks for Best iPad App of the Week are published here every Saturday. Check out all out picks below and you’ll soon have a collection of stellar apps for your favorite tablet.
This week’s pick is The Daily Cut, a curated video library that is updated daily and promises ‘’less searching, more streaming’. Here’s a little slice of its App Store description:
Your daily dose of the best videos.
Daily Cut lets users scan and view videos from a rich array of constantly-updated content. Enjoy the very best in news, entertainment and lifestyle features along with live events, all produced for you. With over 1,500 hours and 35,000 videos, and more being added daily, you will always be in the know.
Videos start streaming as soon as you open the app and move forward to the next video automatically too. When browsing for content you need to use the iPad in portrait mode, as that’s the way the app is designed – though you can flip to landscape when viewing individual videos.
You can browse the mix of videos from various sections, or choose to view a specific category. Categories are News, Sports, Entertainment, Life & Home, Food, Fashion, Technology, and Originals. The Sports section is particularly strong.
Content is drawn from a number of popular mainstream sources, including Sports Illustrated, Fortune, People, TIME, Entertainment Weekly, and more.
I wouldn’t say this is an app you’ll spend huge blocks of time, but it looks quite good for a quick video catch up a couple times a day. Oh, one quick recommendation: if you watch one video in The Daily Cut today, let it be Steve Ballmer busting a move to Fergie at a Clippers game.
Here’s an App Store link for The Daily Cut; it’s free and it’s a universal app designed for both iPad and iPhone.
