Finding and sharing videos online have been made easier with the new iPad app from video search provider MeFeedia. The app comes up with popular and interesting videos based on user ratings and not on whether your friends have liked or shared it.
The app surfaces new videos which you can watch, bookmark to watch later, like or dislike, and also share on Facebook or Twitter. There is also a choice of categories such as news, comedy, tech, business and most popular clips.
MeFeedia hopes to introduce users to videos by learning what they like guessing which videos they might enjoy. First recommendations are from the popular category and later it tries to display the videos by learning from what you like and dislike.
The app does not have a real search option, because it is meant to introduce users to snackable content and not help users search for something they want to watch.
You can choose a video just by swiping through the videos on the preview pane at the bottom of the app. Plus you can check your viewing stats in the stats bar, which shows how many videos you have watched, and how much time you have spend on the app.
MeFeedia looks forward to come up with an update soon, which would help the app use the implicit viewing data, as well as the explicit likes and dislikes to make more intelligent recommendations as it learns how to identify user affinities and viewing patterns.
