Vimeo app gets update to version 2.0 for Windows Phone 8
The Vimeo app in the Windows Phone Store has received an update to version 2.0. The new version of the streaming video app allows you to view and manage all of your Vimeo videos, which goes without saying (although we just did), and watch videos from your Vimeo in-box. Watch Later allows you to view videos at a more convenient time, and NFC Tap-to-share means that by pulling off an amazing tap dancing number, you can share your videos with others. you can use your NFC signal to share Vimeo videos by tapping phones.

With this app for Windows Phone 8 handsets, you can create Live Tiles from your videos or from a featured channel that you like (would seem silly to create a Live Tile from a channel you don't like). Videos on your Watch Later list can be easily "liked" or commented on, and adding videos to this queue is a snap. Videos you create can be uploaded in HD, and you can pause the uploading process and resume it right from where you left off. You can even share your favorite videos on Facebook, Twitter, SMS and via email.

For a brief period of time, the Windows Phone 8 variant of the app was AWOL and replaced with the Windows Phone 7 version. That is no longer the case and the early response from those who have installed the app is 5 stars as far as the eye can see. For those who want an alternative to YouTube, especially since there is no official native client for the latter on the platform, visit the Windows Phone Store. Heck, Vimeo will even give Nokia Lumia owners a free three month trial of the premium Vimeo Plus service, which is a $30 value.

Slow and steady equals premium apps (Apple, Wp8, BB10). Fast and unstable equals alot of BS (android) It will never feel like a safe place in Google play.

Well said buddy, the vimeo app is slick, just downloaded it. The way I see it, google is going to bleed some windows phone users (youtube still looks very strong) if they don't offer a youtube app. Despite the enmity between them, microsoft still has some nice android apps, as long as they bring in money and people stay happy

You are absolutely right, WP 8 is smooth with zero bugs.

Nice, what about the surface?
