UPDATE: 8/28/2015: Our iOS app is live and in the App Store! Download it now!
We’re happy to announce our VidAngel beta iOS app! With the app, you can stream purchased movies and TV shows on your iPhone, iPad or iPod. You can also cast to your TV via your Chromecast or Apple TV (using AirPlay). We’re working with Apple to enable purchasing within our app, but currently you can stream only movies or TV shows already purchased on the VidAngel website.
(8/25 – You don’t need these directions anymore. Simply go to the App Store and download our app) Since the iOS app is in beta, we’ll need to add you to the beta group if you’d like to try it before it’s published in the App Store (it’s so much better than streaming via Safari because you can Chromecast and the player remembers where you were on AirPlay). Here are instructions on how to get VidAngel on your device:
- Send your Apple ID (It is an email address) to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can add you as a beta participant.
- Download Apple’s TestFlight app to your mobile device from the App Store.
- You will receive an email from Apple with a link to download the VidAngel app once you are added as a beta participant.
- Once you receive the beta invitation in email, click on the link provided by Apple and the TestFlight app will open with a button to download the VidAngel beta app.
UPDATE: Subtitles are fixed on all devices
Known issue: while subtitles are working with Chromecast, we’re working on a solution for Apple TV. We look forward to other feedback.
