Just released myVidster iPhone App and store coming soon!

Greeting Vidsters!

Its been awhile since I last posted, but that does not mean I have not been working hard on myVidster.  I have been focusing my time on the backend and the mobile platform of myVidster.

Backend work
Being that myVidster is a social bookmarking site and not a 'tube site', we cannot control the source video files.  This causes issues when a video is removed or is changed by the host site.  These dead/changed video bookmarks need to be removed and manually removing these links are very time consuming and is repetitive work.  To solve this problem I have developed site monitoring to track down when a video file has been removed and scripts to verified its removal from the source site before removing them from public view on myVidster.  Also note that these video bookmarks are flagged as broken and removed from public view and the poster still has access to these bookmarks.

Mobile support
Recently I published the iPhone app which was long over due.  I did not announce its release because it was launched before IOS 7 and I was not sure if the app was going to function properly for the new OS.  The latest version of the app was released this week and is IOS 7 ready.  Lets not forget the popular Android app, which you can download from Google Play.

myVidster store 'coming soon'
Want to represent and show your myVidster love to the world (and look good while doing it)?  We will be doing a beta launch of the myVidster store where you can buy your own myVidster t-shirt and other goodies.
