CNET Editors' review
Specializing in artistic and experimental cinematography, Vimeo is one of the most popular video streaming and hosting Web sites. This official app brings good news to all Vimeo fans as it enables users to view videos anywhere via their Android mobile device. While the Vimeo app does a good job of displaying content, it lacks some features that its competitors have achieved long ago.
The installation and setup for Vimeo is surprisingly easy. The application is small and loads very quickly. Once the app has been opened, the user must sign in to their account or register for a new one. The screen initially displays videos that are promoted by the site in a list-style menu. Small thumbnails accompany a short description of each video. It also has a very easy-to-use search tool to browse videos with specific content, and users can easily edit their favorites list. This app is very intuitive and well designed but lacks some of the key elements that are featured in other similar applications. When the video is displayed it lacks the ability to change resolution to conserve data. There is also the absence of related videos once a video has been viewed. The search function also limits the results. It does not show videos that contain the keyword in the title or description. It only shows videos that have declared that particular keyword as a tag. This severely limits the results and the quality of the search.
If you are a big fan of Vimeo, then the Android variant is definitely a must have. For those simply looking for an application that will provide thousands of entertaining videos and a fun browsing experience, it might be best to look elsewhere. While Vimeo does display the Web content, it does not enable new users to effectively find the content they want or suggest related videos.
