Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Showyou is as easy to use as your TV, only smarter and more personalized. It’s tuned to your tastes and interests, and available on all your devices.
You’re in charge of the channel lineup. There are 100,000s of channels to choose from, including:
— Popular channels from media companies, web video stars, and well known curators like NY Times, The Daily Show, Colbert Report, Vice, Laughing Squid, The Verge, and Vevo;
— Channels for each of your favorite social networks so you can see videos your friends and people you follow share;
— And channels made by people who have made their own personal channel on Showyou with videos they’ve found and shared.
When you launch the app, we’ll pick just the right thing for you to watch from among all the channels you follow. Don’t like what’s on? It’s just a tap to change channels. And you can browse through customized guides and category guides to find something specific.

What's New in Version 5.1
For starters, we’ve turned your iPad and iPhone into an Internet TV. Turn on Showyou, kick back & watch. In tech speak, that means: we’ve got a totally awesome & new video player that turns on when you launch the app, and makes it easy to change channels if you don’t like what’s on.
Significantly improved landscape player on your iPhone.
You can send videos directly to friends. We used to have that; now it’s back & better.
Notifications are back -- see what your friends are doing on Showyou.
If you like Showyou, please take the time to give us a nice review. It really helps!
Lost connection? Go try again
When my wifi iPad loses it's internet connection, I shouldn't have to go find my video again and start over from the start. Retry doesn't work... Waiting on the connection doesn't work... They both eject you back to pick a video when the connection returns.
Until this is fixed, this app is now useless for me. My connection is unstable but comes back quickly... So every 30-90 seconds I lose connection for 1-2 seconds. When that happens the app ejects me back to select a new video.
How about just show the video paused until it is back and the continue where I left off...?
Love this app
So useful, but please make an option in the preferences to have a black background. The white is too bright in a dark room when I watch in bed.
Amazing app you should try it
