Telly, the popular video-sharing platform that was once known as Twitvid, has today released a major update to its iOS app. Jumping to version 2.0, Telly for iOS now makes it significantly easier to watch content, share with friends, and even add a bit of polish to videos before sharing.
Now, when you're ready to share, you can do so with selected individuals or private groups. This makes it easy for recipients to reply with either text or their own videos, from right within the Telly app.
Also new is a nifty landscape mode that the company is dubbing "Carousel view," which lets you easily shuffle through videos in your My Telly or Popular feeds.
But what I think is the biggest news with the update is the improved recording experience. Telly 2.0 lets you pause and resume recording similar to Twitter's Vine app. This new capability should get users' creative juices flowing, as they can now cobble together scenes with minimal effort.
Other updates include a "Hollywood filter," tagging capabilities, a notifications center, and an invite module for getting friends to join the Telly party.
Telly 2.0 is available now for free in the iTunes App Store. There is also an Android version of the app, but as of yet, it has not been updated to version 2.0.
