We’re freshening up your iOS experience with version 6.1 – here’s what you’re getting, and why you’ll want it.
Bye Bye Burger (Menu)
New look. New nav. And fewer taps between you and your movies & TV. Version 6.1 removes the hamburger menu in favor of putting your most commonly used menu items across the top and bottom of your screen.
So, rather than a long scrolling list down the left side, you now have access to Spotlight, Search, Watch, potential Offers, and your Settings across the bottom of your screen – all within thumb reach.
Across the top of your screen, you’ll find navigation that lets you access Spotlight, Disc purchases, Showcases (curated collections), and Trailers.
Get Down With Downloads
This new version of our app also brings back rental downloads! Users will have to be on iOS 12 or above to ensure the ability to download and playback purchased titles and rentals.
Downloads are easy and allow you to watch without using data or wifi. Once you’ve purchased or rented a title tap the Download button, select a quality, and go. You’re only limited by the storage on your iOS phone or tablet.
Navigating The New Nav
Watch, the most important and most used item is right in the middle. This is where you’ll access your Vudu collection, over 6,000 Free movies & TV shows, and any Downloads you have on your device.
To the left of that, Search will let you search across movies and TV no matter which sub-tab you’re in, so no need to get specific, we’ll take care of it.
And tapping on Offers will take you to your My Offers, where you can redeem any offers you earn from purchasing select movies. This replaces the My Offer and bell menu items of the previous app version.
