Video search engine Truveo has launched a new version of its acclaimed video search application for the iPhone (News - Alert). The new improved Truveo Mobile Video Search for iPhone app allows users to access more than 145 million videos and includes a special “What’s Hot” section which includes the most popular videos from across the Web.
“Truveo was the first company to release a video search application on the iPhone and we’re delighted to be the first to release a second generation video search app, one that incorporates much of the feedback we’ve received from users,” commented Pete Kocks, President of Truveo and Vice President of AOL (News - Alert).
“With the most comprehensive video search index and a widely praised iPhone application, Truveo is perfectly positioned to continue to lead in video search.”
