Without the YouTube app, you’d be unable to watch videos on that site with your iOS device, but Vimeo’s clips have been playing perfectly inside your web browser for a while, so why would they release an official app for it? After all, the app's browsing capabilities of this new piece of software aren’t very good -- it doesn't even have a search field. This is because the main purpose of the app is to let you edit your videos and upload them straight to your Vimeo account.
The lack of Flash on mobile devices can be a bummer for some, but the video streaming site Vimeo hopes to solve this on their end. Vimeo is the latest video streaming site to test a new HTML5 video player that is iOS-friendly. This new "Universal Player," which is set to be released later today, will allow viewers to watch video on their devices natively.
