Qplay Launches Updated App with Free Download

Co-founders Mike Ramsay and Jim Barton announce general availability of the Qplay service today following a successful Early Adopter release.

Ramsay said, “When we announced Qplay we defined a new paradigm of Internet video entertainment. Our goal for the Early Adopter release was to see how people used the service. What we found was they fully embraced Qplay - making and watching Qs, sharing with friends, and watching video on the TV and the iPad. As of today, we’re now offering a general release of the Qplay application and service.”

Qplay gives users a TV-like interface for Internet video. Qplay creates Qs, which are like channels, using videos from all over the Internet. Users find videos through social discovery by seeing what their friends are sharing. Because Qplay users create and share their own curated Qs, they’re building a growing community around video.

Qplay is launching a brand new release of the Qplay app today to support this wider availability. This new release includes video content from curators like Vanity Fair, Digg, and Reddit and new video sources like Vice, College Humor, Funny or Die, and the New York Times, all powered by publicly available feeds. The new app also lets users share videos with friends via Facebook, Twitter, and email.

CTO Jim Barton says, “We’re continuing to develop the Qplay service at a rapid pace. We’re enabling the curation of more Qs, on the fly, by combining videos from multiple sources in real time, making the experience faster, easier and more fun.”

Anyone who wants to use Qplay on an iPad can download the app from the Apple App Store for free, TV Adapter purchase no longer required. TV Adapters can be purchased optionally from the Qplay website (www.qplay.co) for $49. The TV Adapter and the free app are both available immediately.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
