Social video service Boxee, has released the long awaited iPad app today. Available for free in the App Store, the Boxee iPad app offers users a way to watch online videos of three varieties. Videos shared by friends, videos added to the watch-later list and featured videos chosen from Boxee are all on offer.
While the score of the application does feel somewhat limited, it is a convenient way to access some great online video. What’s not available is Boxee’s applications. Boxee Box owners along with desktop software lovers enjoy hundreds of dedicated applications on the platform. Unfortunately they are missing, at least from this initial release of the Boxee iPad app.
There is one other function to the Boxee iPad app, that is to play videos from your computer, only problem is, rather than access network drives directly, it requires desktop application. The Boxee iPad app works in both landscape and portrait modes.
