Showyou, Now with Tumblr, Vimeo and YouTube

We’ve just released an update to the Showyou app with some awesome updates. Get it here.

First, the Showyou Grid on the iPad is more customized for you. We now show up to 200 videos from friends and people you follow on social networks you’ve connected to Showyou, and up to 100 videos from your friends on the Showyou app.

And you can now connect Showyou to more of the services you care about. Showyou now works with YouTube, Vimeo, and Tumblr in addition to Facebook, Twitter, and Vodpod. When you connect to those services, we’ll show you videos from channels and people you follow or subscribe to on those services.

And last, you can try out the app without signing in. Tap the “Guest Access” button and try out the app first if you like.

A 10 Million Video Grid

In just three weeks since we launched Showyou, we have fetched over 10 million videos from our users’ Facebook and Twitter feeds, giving them an incredible array of videos to feast on in the Showyou app — especially the Showyou Grid on the iPad.

And our Showyou users really seem to like that feast. They watch, on average, more than 4 videos from the Showyou Grid every time they open the iPad app.

That’s stunning. And proof positive that the best way to find videos is through your friends and people who share your tastes and interests.

Showyou is back on

We’ve have finished repairs to our database and have restored service to Showyou.

For almost all of our users, the service should work just fine. But the accounts of a few users may have been affected by the database issues we encountered Saturday night and those users may need to recreate their Showyou accounts.

If you start the Showyou app and get authentication errors, we’ve put instructions up on our website. Once you’ve signed out, just tap the sign up button to remake your Showyou account.

Our apologies for the inconvenience. Get back to enjoying Showyou and watching videos with and from your friends.

Showyou Service Status — Sunday Update

As many of you know, we’ve had the service offline for most of the past 24 hours while we have done some emergency database maintenance in response to some database failures we saw late last night.

We’ve made good progress on that overnight and today, but we’ve decided to keep the service down overnight and into tomorrow with the goal of turning Showyou back on tomorrow night.

We apologize for the inconvenience, and look forward to you using Showyou for many hours and days and weeks and months to come. We appreciate your patience.
