Frequency Comes to iPhone
LOS ANGELES, CA, Dec 06, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Frequency, a free service that delivers the best of online video to
consumers, today announced the release of the Frequency app for
iPhone, the latest way to access the Frequency service. Frequency
allows people to choose, personalize and watch video channels made
just for them and sourced from thousands of websites as well as their
own Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube feeds. Frequency for iPhone, which
builds on the success and critical acclaim of the Frequency for iPad
app, is optimized for iOS 6 and iPhone 5 and gives iPhone users a
highly intuitive and personalized interface for watching all their
favorite online videos in a single place.
Frequency, which launched in January of this year, is revolutionizing
the way people watch online video. Just as paid services like Netflix
and Hulu have made viewing movie and TV content across multiple
devices a seamless experience, Frequency aims to be the go-to service
for viewing the almost unlimited amount of freely available
ad-supported online video available across the internet, shared on
social media channels, and posted by leading content publishers.
Frequency works by continuously indexing thousands of online video
sources -- from obscure blogs to leading global news organizations to
specialty sports websites -- and organizing it into channels for
quick and easy viewing on connected devices, including TVs, tablets,
and now, iPhones.
"Our goal at Frequency is to connect consumers to all the great
internet video they care about, in a highly personalized way. We're
indexing and organizing the web's video and making it available via
the most simple yet powerful applications available," said Blair
Harrison, CEO and founder of Frequency. "Across our apps, people can
tune in to whatever they're interested in. They can see the videos
shared by their friends, watch a personalized channel of breaking
news, or stay up-to-date on their favorite team or band. Now, tens of
millions of iPhone users can watch what's interesting and relevant to
them in a single app."
Frequency's latest app takes advantage of iPhone 5's stunning
display, advanced features, and industry-leading user experience to
offer users a centralized place for finding and viewing online
videos. Similar to Frequency's service on other devices, the iPhone
app delivers personalized recommendations based on interests and
content viewing patterns that users can take with them to view
wherever they are.
Upon launching the app, users will immediately see Frequency's
signature "Tuner," which intelligently displays their favorite
channels, connected services such as Facebook, and personalized
channels made just for them. Designed from the ground up to be used
with one hand, the app allows users to easily navigate across
channels or up and down through individual video selections and
categories with swipe actions. Users can easily share any video with
friends via Message, SMS, email, social media, or save videos for
later viewing, either in-app or on other devices, including the iPad,
a computer, and on TV through Apple TV and AirPlay.
To download Frequency for iPhone, visit the Apple App Store. For more
