A couple of weeks ago Voddler came out with a dedicated app for the iPad. Optimized iPad apps are rather crucial for video apps, so it was definitely about time. Available in Scandinavia only, the 49NOK App lets you access the Voddler service on the go, meaning that you can stream movies, documentaries and TV shows to your iPad for free. Unfortunately they still don’t have the entire catalog optimized for mobile, meaning that there are even fewer items to choose from on the iPad app than on the web version. The only TV series you can watch for free, for instance, are Andromeda, The Saint (old), Crash and The Devil’s Mistress. The movie selection is slightly better, but not by much. Not exactly enough to compete with Hulu and Netflix in the US, though since this is for a whole different part of the world it doesn’t have to. Quite a hefty price for something this useless though, so they might want to consider dropping it to 7 NOK (equivalent of $1) until there is more content.[iTunes]
