Viewdini is a new app for Verizon customers to stream content to their 4G LTE Android phones or tablets, from places like Netflix, Hulu, Xfinity, and more. You can watch movies or catch up on TV shows, or even search by actor. Not only is there subscription-based content (like Netflix), but there is also rentals and even free content. It’s a one stop app for video content of all kind.
It states that other operating systems aside from Android will soon be supported. Does this mean that the Viewdini app is either being developer or is already being reviewed by Apple for the App Store? Or is this simply going to be an app for their single Windows Phone device?
Now all we need is unlimited data plans to stream to our hearts content.
