Simian, the industry-leading video sharing and collaboration service used by ad agencies, media companies, production houses, post studios and music providers, has launched an update for its popular Simian Go! mobile app for iOS. Simian users can download the updated version from the App Store here.
The updated Go! app provides all the power and functionality found in the Simian web app’s reel management and sharing tools, but with full remote capability. It features a complete redesign of the user interface and offers new capabilities, such as being able to create shortlinks sent from their own email clients so users can share reels and work more easily. Users can even send reel links via text; recipients are greeted with a large thumbnail from the first spot on the reel when they get it on their phones.
Current Simian clients already enjoy a roster of benefits unmatched by any other video sharing and collaboration service. They can create custom branded reel presentations and pitch multiple directors, editors or other creative talents for projects with packaged combination reels. Simian’s Real Time Analytics allows them to track viewer engagement of the reels they send out, and they have full access to their entire reel library both from the web app as well as the Go! app. And with Simian Go! they can edit or revise existing reels on the fly, delete or designate expiration dates for reels and tap the services’ robust search and filter tools.
Simian accounts can be accessed via multiple logins, both from the web app and the mobile app, so that all team members can be up on the latest revisions, client comments and other important aspects of each job. And actions taken on Simian Go! synchs fully with the accompanying Simian account.
Production and agency professionals who are not current Simian customers can test out the service by signing up for a free 7-day trial at www.gosimian.com.
“Many of our users have downloaded the first iteration of our Go! app, and we’ve gotten some great feedback from them that’s been incorporated into this new update,” says Jay Brooks, Simian Co-Founder and Chief Technical Officer. “We’ve improved the appearance, functionality and experience, and changed the layout and actions of important buttons and menus to provide a more intuitive navigation. Our initial response while testing was so good, we moved quickly to get this up on the App Store so our user base could start taking advantage of its awesome new look and feel.”
Every Simian plan includes an unlimited number of users and customized permission levels for every role in your company. Its media library features customizable categories, credits and tagging and allows for an unlimited number of projects. Videos can be shared privately, and clients can provide feedback with comments and video annotations accessible from within Simian or from within Adobe Premiere. And Simian backs up its product with full 360 video support, 24/7 live support and frequent upgrades and new features.
