Have you noticed that every other tweet or posting on Facebook seems to be a link to another video that someone would like you to watch? And what about all those YouTube channels you subscribe to? You can hardly keep track of it all. Thankfully, Frequency’s trying to make your life easier by gathering all these clips (and a lot more beyond those) in one location.
Launch the app for the first time and you’ll be graced with a series of channels for you to choose from; some have even been preselected for you. Follow the ones you’re interested in and they’ll appear as icons at the top of your screen, like a selection of on-demand TV channels. Grant it access to your Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube accounts, and it gets a lot more interesting: any video linked to you from there will now appear in Frequency, so you can watch them at your leisure.
Frequency works great in either orientation, although the clip’s description can hardly be seen in landscape mode. You'll end up switching between landscape and portrait just to read some details of what you're about to watch, which is a tad annoying.
Sadly, there's no search field to help you find specific clips quickly. If you can’t remember which channel you saw something on (and you follow a lot of them), it can be a hassle to locate it again, although you can make any video into a favorite. This activates your Favorite channel where all such clips are gathered, and you can also create a Watch Later channel for those videos you’re interested in but don’t have time to watch just yet.
The bottom line. Frequency does a great job at gathering all the clips you’re interested in from across the web. If you're into watching video on your iPad, definitely check this one out.
