Over the last year we have been privileged to team up with several YouTube content providers to provide their official iOS apps into the app store. We are making every effort to provide you, our faithful users, with a diverse collection of “the best of the best” in their respective categories.
One of the categories that is growing in popularity on YouTube is the role of the filmmaker. Once a haven for pet videos and total random postings by unsuspecting family members, YouTube is quickly maturing into a source for content that rivals network and cable television – both in content quality and production quality.
One of the sources of this remarkable “content shift” towards quality is Julian Smith. For those of you who might not know Julian, he’s the creative mind behind some awesome original comedic shorts, parodies, webisodes, and music videos — all of which have gained him the public spotlight more than once. One of his most well-known videos, entitled “25 things I hate about facebook” went viral, landed him an interview on the Tyra Banks show, and yielded an invitation to facebook’s home office to film a sequel.
Julian’s attention to detail in his videos extends to his unique, easy to navigate, custom website and into everything he does. Given all of this, and especially given Julian’s discriminating eye for new media – we are very excited to announce that we have partnered with Julian to provide his Official iOS application into the app store. It’s more than a privilege to catch the eye of someone with such a talented eye ;).
JulianSmith Official has been launched into the app store and is available now! To download the application, simply click here – whether you are on your computer or on your device, you will be directed right to the app’s listing in the app store. The application is currently optimized for the iPhone/iPod, and will function just fine in compatibility mode on your iPad. A future release of this app specific to iPad and Android is also planned, as with all of our other popular apps.
Julian’s app gives you super easy access to all of his YouTube content, and features push notifications whenever new videos are posted. The app allows you to use common YouTube community functionality to rate/comment/subscribe and interact with Julian’s content, as well as peruse his various social streams, website, and store. If you are a fan of Julian – we know you’ll love this convenient way to keep Julian in your pocket wherever you go!
As always, the app also contains three tabs intended to keep you “in the loop” with our latest developments. The “About” tab gives you a quick way to check your version and contact us with any feature suggestions, questions, or bug reports. The “dev blog” tab gives you a mobile view of this blog, so that you can stay up to date with new releases, known outages, and tips and tricks. Finally, the “More Apps” tab gives you a direct route to download any of our other popular applications.
We hope that you enjoy this new addition to our lineup as much as we enjoyed building it.
