Voddler Launches Native iPad App

Video-on-demand service Voddler has released a native iPad app to add to its iPhone and Android versions. The Voddler app enables users to watch films for free from Voddler’s catalogue of over 4,500 movies, 200 of which are available for the iPad.

The iPhone and Android versions are free, but in order to cover the additional costs of film storage and streaming that the iPad entails, users pay a one-time fee for the iPad app of SEK49 in Sweden; €5.49 in Finland; DKK42 in Denmark; and NOK49 in Norway.

“We continue to develop so that you can see movies whenever and wherever you want, regardless of which screen you happen to have nearby,” says Anders Sjöman, head of communication at Voddler. “At the same time, we keep our focus on seamless transitions between the screens. If you, for instance, start watching a film on your mobile on the way home, you can then pick up exactly where you left off when you get to your computer-connected TV at home, or on your iPad if the home-TV was already occupied.”

Voddler is available in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland, and showed over 5m million films during 2010. Voddler says its mission is to offer a premium service for viewers, content owners and advertisers.
