Vimeo users will notice that the video-sharing site recently pushed out an update for its iOS client this weekend, bringing the app to version 4.0.8. The update includes enhancements such as new gestures, deeper AirDrop integration and more. As far as the new gestures go, users can now swipe left or right on a video thumbnail to share it, like it, or watch it later or even add it to your device. With the improved AirDrop support, users can quickly share videos from device to device.

The release notes for version 4.0.8 can be found below:

What’s New in Version 4.0.8

Gesticulation nation: Swipe left or right on a thumbnail to Share, Like, Watch Later, or Add to Device.

Sharing is caring: Share any video through Airdrop; see more videos from Twitter and Facebook friends in your Incoming feed.

Better everywhere: We fixed some bugs and made playback and search speedier, easier, and cooler.

Patience, Grasshopper: Like all apps, this one is a work in progress. We’re striving to make it as awesome as we know it can be by adding features with every release. Thanks for understanding!
Oddly enough, Vimeo was said to have added AirDrop sharing to the app back in November, but in the changelog it notes that the feature can now be used to share any video. As a result, we are assuming that it has been improved in some form or another. The company seems to have gotten into the habit of seeding updates roughly once every month or so in which they revamp features to improve user experience.


Those of you interested in downloading the update can do so for free from the App Store.
