Hold the Line: Wistia for Your iPhone is Here

We know you’re busy. You’ve got places to be, people to meet, and video to capture and share.

That’s why we built our first ever mobile app for iOS. Now you can upload new video content into your account in a flash, customize it on the fly, and share your creations with the world… all with your iPhone or tablet.

Too busy to read this blog post? Download the Wistia app, and be on your way. Good luck out there.

App sounds nice, but how does this really work?

Let’s take a look around, shall we?

Say you work at an agency, and you’re at a lunch meeting with a prospective client. You can pull out your iPad, navigate to specific projects within your Wistia account, and give a professional tour of your best videos.

Record and upload videos into projects instantly

Now let’s pretend you work for a boutique furniture company, and you’re touring a site for a future office. Take out that phone and record a short video of the space. When you’re finished, the video will automatically upload right into your Wistia account. You can give it a title ("Our New Home") and a description ("Except for that heinous wallpaper"), and email it to your team. Right then and there.

Share videos with your audience

Or maybe you’re a social media manager, and you’re hoping to share your creative team’s latest video about your office dog. In the app, you can quickly find the video you need and send the file to Twitter or Facebook. Bonus: The app will optimize your video’s file size for each platform, so you can focus on crafting the perfect message to go along with your video. Just think… you could do all of this while you’re out getting cannolis.

We know what you’re thinking: I cannoli imagine.

Shoot and save gems for later

Last, but certainly not least, picture yourself at a company holiday party. “I Had the Time of My Life” starts playing, and some key players are really grooving. Capture that timeless footage, upload it to your Wistia account, and save it for the archives. You never know when you’ll need a pick-me-up before a big company meeting or a clip for a fun recruiting video.

The possibilities are endless. Sales intros, testimonials, event recordings, internal meetings… they’re all within your reach. Capture them on the go, customize ’em to your liking, keep them all organized, and share them with, well, whomever!

Work in progress

We are making improvements each day to create the best possible experience for you, and we’ve got some updates coming down the pike:

  • The ability for all user roles to use the application (right now it’s only for account owners and managers)
  • More customizations
  • A better in-app video viewing experience

There’s still a ton of work to be done, and we’d love to get your input on what parts of Wistia you’d like to see on your iPhone or iPad. If you’ve got ideas, please reach out to us at support@wistia.com. Our friendly customer champions will make sure your thoughts end up in the right hands.
