Wimp video database scores a neat and tidy Android app

Wimp video database scores a neat and tidy Android app
Wimp has been a good alternative to the crazyness on YouTube for a while now. It takes a more curated approach to videos, similar to Vimeo, but its video database is a fraction of what YouTube offers.

Still, on any random day you can find good stuff there that is more family-oriented, and doesn't cause a brain-melt like some of YouTube's viral videos. 

Just as a random example, yesterday's picks include stuff like "Louis C.K. on Father's Day", "Japanese Maglev train runs at 500 km/h", "Clever cow", "Savant learns how to speak Icelandic in a week", "A box and Maru" and "Kindergartener performs "Doctor Who" monologue".

The indie movie database now has its own Android app, which is certainly flashier than the barebones site itself, it includes a feed for the most recently uploaded videos, and the data is organized by month, making fresh stuff easily discoverable.
