Vimeo's video app gets a major facelift on Roku

Discovery features are becoming the norm among video and music applications. Vimeo, naturally, has been taking note of this and is now introducing a redesigned app for Roku streaming devices. Along with making it simpler for viewers to find fresh content on its homepage, Vimeo's new application also lets Roku users get smarter search results and have easier access to their personalized feeds -- such as Incoming, Likes, My Videos and Watch Later. The online video company says this was all done with the future in mind, too; the application is setup to support in-app purchasing for the Vimeo On Demand service, which will soon allow creators to charge for productions directly from any Roku. Vimeo on Roku definitely looks much prettier than it did before, let's just hope those looks match its overall performance.
