I’ve been jamming away on multiple projects since joining Shelby.tv in April. One of these projects, Shelby Genius, was just released.
In a nutshell, Genius can be thought of as a ‘Pandora for Video’. You type in a query, and Genius returns videos that are popular right now and related to your query (we have tons of data and algorithms that determine these pieces of information).
Notable features in Genius:
- Continuous playback: Once a video ends, the next one starts
- Don’t like the video you chose? Tap the screen and click the previous/next buttons to load a new video
- AirPlay Support: Hook it up to your Apple TV, and stream TV shows, clips, music videos, movies, straight to your big screen
- Remote Control Playback: After choosing a movie, double tap on the home button, swipe to the right in the task menu at the bottom of the phone and use the controls there to play/pause, and load the next/previous videos
- Share the video: Twitter, Facebook and Email.
An iPad and iPhone 5 version will be out real soon! Also, checkout some more awesome posts about Shelby Genius.
