Internet video is the future. It's hard to argue that. The mobile landscape is chaotic, though, and figuring out which services have what shows or movies can be a complicated task. Viewdini, from Verizon, wants to be the digital age's TV Guide, aggregating show info, availability, reviews, and discovery into a single app. Search for the name of a show or movie and you'll get info about it, as well as where you can watch it.

In addition to featuring info about shows, movies, and music, the app also integrates reviews. While not explicitly mentioned in the app's description, the video below clearly shows Metacritic's highly-regarded reviews being featured, as well as being "powered by" TV.com, a leading TV database juggernaut. The wealth of info available in this app is worth getting excited about.

The app is only available to Verizon customers, somewhat frustratingly, as the app doesn't seem to be tied directly into any Verizon service. The app doesn't even appear to do any streaming itself, merely providing quick access to streaming sources. Still, if you're one of the millions of Verizon subscribers that watches video on a variety of sources, this app should be great for you.

      Droid 2 and others: incompatible with all devices..... huh? Crappy phones.

  • Slappy Sam

    Is this just an updated renamed version of Verizon's videosurf app?

  • critter42

    Of course it's only for Verizon customers - how else is VZW going to lure their users into busting the caps they're going to be on from now on?

      That's exactly what they want their customers to do.

    Those app notifications in the screenshots are driving me crazy for some reason

    Another useless Verizon exclusive app. Why people go along with these scams from Verizon is beyond me. Verizon is useless..

  • Jaysann22

    If people are smart, no one will use this stupid app just like verizon customers will stop using other streaming apps like Pandora and Netflix after Verizon's data caps roll out....
