Are you getting a lot of DVDs or Blu-rays this holiday season? Would you like to have that same content in digital format as well so that you can watch using a mobile device and an internet connection? Then take a look at Vudu. Its a service from the movie studios that lets you do just that, scan a digital copy code and get the same content for your digital library, though sometimes you might have to pay a couple of bucks for this.
Just in time for the holiday season the folks behind this service have pushed out a major update for the Vudu iOS app, which works natively on both the iPhone and the iPad. It has been completely rebuilt from the ground up to be faster than ever before and more response, the app also brings “several highly-requested features” which make it easier to stream and download Vudu purchases or rentals on the iPhone or iPad.
This new user interface has already been released on Vudu apps for other platforms like Roku and PlayStation. It brings a cleaner design with better sorting options, TV season grouping, improved search that lets users find a title without scrolling, episode lists and details apart from the ability to download content to watch offline.
India is one emerging market that many up and coming smartphone companies are focusing on. We have seen Xiaomi and OnePlus pay particularly close attention to this market but unfortunately the former was recently hit with a ban in India, it had to stop sales until a court reversed that decision. The country then placed a similar ban on OnePlus forcing the nascent smartphone maker to stop sales but that ban too has now been set aside.
