A few days ago, I wrote this post suggesting a feature for mobile-based video services, the overall idea being that the app might display different length content based upon the user’s location.
I cheekily surmised that perhaps content should be served depending the answer to the following question:Â
â€œHi, where are you? In bed, on the train or on the toilet?â€
“Hmmmâ€¦ Youâ€™ve given me an idea for a weekend hackâ€¦”
Well, it’s the weekend, and Terence has finished hacking – LooTu.be has arrived!
While not the most tasteful of mobile web apps available today, LooTube is awesome as it answers the challenge I posed last week: why can’t mobile video be served in order of length (based upon your location)?
Amazing, nicely done Terence.
Give it a go yourself, next time you’re headed to the can – hit up http://lootu.be on your mobile and see what you fancy watching.
Terence has posted too – ‘Context Specific Content Surfacing‘Â
