Description

Imagine a service as easy to use as your TV, only smarter and more personalized. That's Showyou.

Showyou is tuned to your tastes and interests, and available on all your devices. You can even use Showyou to power your TV if you have an Apple TV (via Airplay) or Chromecast.

With Showyou, you're in charge of the channel lineup. Just use our Channel Guide to get the channels you want:

-- New fan-funded premium channels including IndieFlix (with 1000s of short films, documentaries and features) and AboveAverage, the online comedy network from SNL producer Lorne Michaels' Broadway Video.

— Great free channels from the NY Times, Vice, The Verge, Vevo and other top media companies and Internet publishers;

Connect Showyou to your favorite social networks if you want to watch the videos your friends and contacts share, and follow people on Showyou to see the videos they recommend.

Whenever you launch the app, we’ll highlight the best things for you to watch. Our personalized feeds are perfect for those times where you’ve got just ten to twenty minutes and want to see the day’s best videos.

You can also use Showyou to spend time catching up on your favorite channels, which are always just a tap away.

Watching videos on Showyou is effortless. Tap to play a video and then sit back and watch all the videos in your feeds or channels; or use the carousel to browse video-by-video.

What's New

Version 5.4.3 (Apr 06, 2015)

More fine-tuning, polishing, and bug fixes including:

-- Improvements to carousel and video player performance
-- Fixes for bugs affecting iPhone 4/4s users
-- Fixes for bugs affecting some users on iOS 7
-- Overall improvements to performance and reliability

All of this builds on the goodness that is the 5.4 release:
New, updated design for the iPhone 6 and 6+. We love watching video on the big phones!

Landscape support for iPhones of all sizes.

New carousel player mode, with better support for moving forwards or backwards within a feed or channel.

New "related" videos -- browse and watch more videos related to the current video you're watching.

Expand notes
Version 5.4.2 (Mar 12, 2015)

Lots of buffing and polishing in the 5.4.2 version of Showyou:

The scrubber is buttery smooth (the scrubber is the thing on the player you drag to move forwards and back within a video, and buttery smoothness the highest level of smoothness possible, except for grass-fed-buttery-smooth, which we’re hard at work on).

Improved Chromecast support, including a change so that after you connect to Chromecast, Showyou will continue to playback through Chromecast for the duration of your session, until you disconnect. (Thanks to one of our power users for all the help here!)

Changes to how we auto-refresh the feed. Instead of automatically refreshing the feed every time it loads, we now auto-refresh only at the start of a session. If you want to refresh the feed during a session just “pull down” on the feed to refresh.

Fixed a bug that affected people trying to access notifications.

Fixed a bug that affected some auto-playback while in full-screen mode.

Numerous improvements to overall player reliability.

Many minor bug fixes and performance improvements.

Purple Reign. A new app icon that Prince would love.

Plus all the goodness of 5.4:
New, updated design for the iPhone 6 and 6+. We love watching video on the big phones!

Landscape support for iPhones of all sizes.

New carousel player mode, with better support for moving forwards or backwards within a feed or channel.

New "related" videos -- browse and watch more videos related to the current video you're watching.

Version 5.1.3 (Jul 18, 2014)

You should install this update -- it's much improved!

tl;dr: Fixes a number of nasty bugs we saw with video playback, especially on Airplay playback.

And, we've added that lovely parallax effect back to the iPhone app. We missed it.

Longer version:
We try to set a high bar for quality, and the last version we released (5.1.2) did not meet that bar. For that we apologize. We completely reworked our video player, and we'd tested it reasonably thoroughly. Not thoroughly enough, as it turns out.

We know some of you experienced poor performance and buggy playback while using Airplay in particular. This was a direct result of our switch to the new player framework.

We've fixed all that up, and things should be much, much better. In fact, we think it's a pretty fine version of the app, 5.1.3. And parallax makes a triumphant return to the iPhone (last seen in version 4.x). We missed you, friend.

Version 5.1 (Feb 27, 2014)

For starters, we’ve turned your iPad and iPhone into an Internet TV. Turn on Showyou, kick back & watch. In tech speak, that means: we’ve got a totally awesome & new video player that turns on when you launch the app, and makes it easy to change channels if you don’t like what’s on.

Significantly improved landscape player on your iPhone.

You can send videos directly to friends. We used to have that; now it’s back & better.

Notifications are back -- see what your friends are doing on Showyou.

If you like Showyou, please take the time to give us a nice review. It really helps!

New full bleed video player.
