Squrl for iPad

Squrl, the excellent videos and video search app for the iPad and iOS, has been updated this week – to Version 2.7.

The huge new feature added in this update is live streaming of TV channels. It can be accessed right from the app’s main screen under the ‘Live’ heading. And it’s great stuff. I’m watching Leo Laporte and his Windows Weekly show live as I write this post.

Here’s the full change list for this latest update of Squrl:

● Live streaming TV channels have been added to the main menu under “Live”
● Redesigned profile page with subscription management for services, YouTube, Netflix, Facebook and Twitter.
● New channels “Liked” and “Recently Watched”
● Share videos directly from search results
● Enable/disable automatic playlisting of videos
● Easier channel and playlist navigation


TWiT on Squrl

Squrl is a long standing favorite iPad videos app for me. It is a past choice for Best Free iPad App of the Week and also a selection in my post on the best YouTube alternatives on the iPad.

The app also seems to be going through a little bit of an identity crisis just now. The name in the App Store is now listed as ‘YouTube Video Search – Squrl: Find and Watch You Tube, Netflix, and Hulu Videos’. Just my 02 – but I’d say Squrl is a heck of a lot better, and of course that’s way too long.

Here’s an App Store link for Squrl; it’s a free app and a universal app designed for both iPad and iPhone.
