Squrl – the best video discovery and just plain video enjoying app I’ve seen for the iPad – has had a recent update, to Version 2.0.
The app has a slick new icon (although I sort of miss the cute squirrel that was used before) and a redesigned UI with gesture support and a very different overall look as well as different ways to navigate round the app.
I did a review of Squrl for iPad it back in April – here’s a quick slice of the summary:
It gives you access to all the best videos from all the best sources in a single app. It makes it easy to organize all your favorites from its disparate range of sources, create your own sets of them and your queue of what you want to watch next, share what you’re watching or sets you’ve made, and offers excellent options for discovering new content.
If you like watching videos on your iPad, or on Apple TV, or both, then Squrl is rapidly going to become your best friend.
I also picked it as a Best Free iPad App of the Week – so as you might guess, it’s one of my favorite iPad apps.
Here’s the full change list for Version 2.0:
Personalized Channel list based on interests
"Fresh" and "What’s Hot" video sections with new and trending video
Add Friends module, add friends from Facebook, Twitter, and your contact list, then see who’s sharing what with unique playlists for all your social network friends
Redesigned interface with gesture support and new branding
And here’s an App Store link for Squrl; it’s free and is a universal app designed for both iPad and iPhone.
