Earlier this year, we profiled ShowYou, the video discovery and sharing app with a distinctive grid-like interface that worked on all kinds of touch devices but reached its optimal form, not surprisingly, on the iPad.
ShowYou's Web Grids is now available by invitation on the web and the UI is closely aligned with that of the iPad version. Users can now share their whole grid (i.e. channel) of videos with friends, on the web.
"It’s a shift in strategy for us," says ShowYou CEO Mark Hall. "We’re using a mobile device to build a website, essentially. We’re not inventing this notion, because there are entire companies out there (like Zapd) devoted just to that, but we are part of that trend."
