iPad 2

Remixation – creators of Vodpod, a popular video curation site has just released a new app called Showyou on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

It allows you to watch videos that your friends have shared on Facebook, Twitter or Vodpod. It reminds us of Flipboard, a popular social newsreading app for iPad, which also aggregates links shared by friends on social networks like Facebook and Twitter and provides a beautiful interface to browse through content.

Showyou comes with the following features:

The Showyou Grid, a customizable and awesomely fun-to-use 2D grid of nearly 1000 videos

- The Showyou Feed, where you can watch and talk about videos with your friends on Showyou

- Find and follow your friends on Showyou, or invite them to get the app

- Customize your Grid by inviting your friends, connecting to all your social networks, and following other Showyou members

- When you see a video you love, share it on Showyou or your other social networks with a tap (Facebook, Twitter)

- Tell your friends when you like a video they have shared by “thanking†them

- Get notified when your friends thank you for sharing a video, or comment on a video you shared

- Share videos you see while browsing the web — just send an e-mail to share@showyou.com

You can checkout the demo video of the app below:

Mark Hall, the CEO of Remixation says that they were inspired by Flipboard and Instagram, an iPhone app that allows users to share stylised photos on Facebook, Twitter and Flickr.

“It’s different than Flipboard in that it has its own built-in social network, like Instagram, and it’s different from Instagram in that it has the Flipboard-like ability to discover outside [one's] current feeds.â€

Like Flipboard, Showyou provides a beautiful interface to consume video content, especially on the iPad.

You can download Showyou for free from the App Store using the following iTunes link.

As always, let us know what you think of the app in the comments section below.
