Hello VB members,
I hope you all had a safe and enjoyable holiday season. I certainly did, and during that time I starting using VideoBox in a way that really surprised and excited me. Well, the excitement part comes naturally, but the surprise is because it’s not something I believe enough of our users are either aware or or utilizing.
Simply stated, you’ve got access to your entire VideoBox account content, including your favorites, on your iPhone. Today. Now. And you don’t have to download or sync anything to get it.
I’m talking about streaming. It’s how iPhone users view YouTube’s video’s today and even news and sports streams as well. VideoBox doesn’t have “An App For That”, but it’s all fully supported and available on your iPhone today via the device’s Safari web browser.
Setup is a breeze and here’s a simple walkthrough that’ll have you watching “POV” content in as realistic a fashion as you could imagine in a matter of minutes.
1: Launch the Safari browser on your phone, go to videobox.com and login.
2: Choose a scene.
3: Tap the blue ‘iPhone’ download button (use ‘two finger pinching’ to zoom in and see images, text and buttons).
That’s it. That’s all it takes. Your video will buffer and start playing. Tilt your iPhone horizontal for an even better full screen experience.
Here’s a few suggestions that’ll optimize your mobile VB experience:
1: Utilized “Favorites”. If you use our “Add To My Favorites” feature, you can save scenes and access them all from a single page later. (You can even create a specific “iPhone” favorites list, and use it to isolate just the scenes you want to get to on the iPhone from all your other favorites).
2: Add A Bookmark to your home screen. To speed up access to your favorites (or just to VideoBox), when you’re on your “Favorites” page, click the “+” sign in the center of the button bar on the bottom of the screen. Choose “Add to Home Screen”, name it something clever or innocuous, and boom…. It’s now an icon on your iPhone.
Is this “the best we can do” at VideoBox? Hell no! We’re already talking about ways we can dramatically improve this with a dedicated “mobile-device” site design and layout. That’s not ready just yet, while this… This is on your phone and waiting for you to try it out today.
Caveat: VideoBox is not responsible for replacing iPhones accidentally dropped while utilizing our streaming content. 🙂
Is that a massive collection of adult video content in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?
