COMPELLING APPS FOR VIDEO

Meeting at Vimeo on May 29, 2014 at 555 W18th Street, NY
Design for Vimeo has gone from a small version of the browser site to a mobile version emphasizing video play and networking. Editing was removed and the size of the thumbnails was increased. Text was deemphasized. Cameo does real time video editing using the cloud. Key decision are 6 second segments, prepackaged music, selection of themes, limited scene editing. Both are only on iOS.
Good view on how mobile interfaces are improved by focusing on the key deliverable and simplifying the graphics and the interface.
