Video apps are certainly gaining considerable acceptance among Apple aficionados, as we see their ever increasing numbers in the apps store. And, the latest one to join their esteemed ranks is the PodcastVideo. Envisaged as a video podcast playing app (with easy accessibility to iTune Library), this software also scores high on the 'collective' value of usability. How so? Well, the app in question has the convenient capability to separate audio from the video element. More importantly, the total scope of the videos can be fully controlled by just hand gestures.
Only compatible with iOS 5.0 or higher, the 1.1 MB package comes with a slew of user friendly features like simplistic UI, intuitive design, aspect ratio for external display, multiple playback ratio and even message displaying capacity. And, as we mentioned before, one of the more unique attributes of the software is the allowance of playing only audio from the video file, while the associated device is in sleep mode. The ambit also helps you to set different background music when you are using a different app.
However, the definitive element of the PodcastVideo is its ability to be controlled by just finger based gestures. For example, the playing/pausing function requires tapping with two fingers, whereas changing the aspect ratio requires a double tap. Other simple gestures including swiping from left to right and vice versa for fast forwarding and rewinding respectively. Moreover, top swiping increases the speed, while downward swiping does the opposite.
But, at the end of the day, the greatest feature of this app is that it's completely free to use for iOS users. So, both video and audio junkies should get their fair share of satisfaction, fused with dollops of convenience in its core utilization.
