While there are probably a lot of video streaming apps out there already, you will of course have your favorite one. And if VUDU Movies & TV is your app of choice (or if you’re looking to switch to a different one), then you’ll be happy to hear that the Android app has undergone a major update. In fact, the developers say they went straight up 3 versions from the last update they previously released.
And when they say they underwent an “Empire Strikes Back big” update, they really do mean it. Not only was it completely redesigned and rebuilt, this version now supports HD (720p) and HDX (1080p) quality streams and downloads. And this is something that is exclusively available for any Android device that is capable of showing hi-res videos and running on Jellybean and higher. You can also now watch videos on Portrait mode, even though landscape is the natural position when watching a video on your smartphone. But apparently, some people prefer watching it that way since you only need one hand to do so.
The app also how has a new navigation menu that is hidden under the burger menu. You can also now arrange or filter the films/shows by date, genre, and even Tomato-meter (we assume Rotten Tomatoes ratings), aside from the usual title, director, etc. When you’re searching for a title, you also now have an auto-magic search suggestion. They also advise you to use it to discover “amazing gems” of videos that you may not have heard of before.
You can check if the update has already reached your account by going to the app’s Google Play Store page on your device. If you haven’t tried out VUDU yet, then maybe now may be a good time to do so.
