Vimeo has updated their app for the Apple TV, simplifying navigation and adding trailers Vimeo On Demand, among other new features. The app will update on your Apple TV automatically.

The new Vimeo for Apple TV

The menu has been moved to the top of the screen to allow for quick access to different sections. The main Vimeo section, My Feed, Watch Later, My Videos, Search, and Settings, are now all more readily available. The Vimeo section contains things like the top videos of 2013, along with the new Staff Favorites album, which catalouge the staff picks from the previous month.

Vimeo On Demand trailers give you a look at the different full-length films available on Vimeo. You can watch a trailer, much as you can in the Trailers app on the Apple TV, and then select the Later button to add it to your Watch Later queue. Purchase it when you're ready, and it will appear both in the Watch Later section and in My Videos.

This update also adds content filter, a "more" button to find more videos by particular creators, and more hidden features. What do you think of the new Vimeo experience on the Apple TV? Leave your thoughts below in the comments.

Looks great, but I think the experience is harmed by Vimeos insistence on using tags to sort content, but then pretending that they are actually categories. Vimeo "categories" are just meta-tags, which doesn't work. As long as they refuse to categorise their content, it will always be confusing to the end user.

Their top level "nature" category for example will include everything from nature videos to nudie shots, just because some guy put the "nature" tag on his upload. If I'm looking for documentaries, I should be able to see a documentary category. If I'm looking for technical videos, same thing.

As long as the "categories" are fake, and at the mercy of whatever tag some doofus puts on his upload, it will always be a crap fest finding good content.
