Hulu Launches Redesigned iPad App with Major New Features

Hulu Plus UpdateThe Hulu Plus experience just keeps getting better and better. I guess that’s why we love watching shows on our iPad with the Hulu app. Yesterday, the company announced the launch of an epic update that, not only changes the look of the user interface, but also changes the way we watch movies and TV shows on the app.

Version 3.0 brings with it an “entirely new Hulu Plus Experience.” The app has been redesigned from the ground up with a focus on creating a customized experience for each user.

With the update, users can open up a discover panel that lets you watch TV shows or continue browsing for new shows. When you tap an episode, you will see the show’s summary, plus information on that specific episode. You can also swipe left or right to browse collections and seasons, “like looking through a crate of records or a shoe box of the most awesome baseball cards a week’s allowance could buy.”

The app now lets you pinch to reduce the size of the viewing window so that you can watch a television show while scrolling through others to look for more options. The video will continue playing while you are browsing other titles in the Hulu Plus app.

Hulu has also added hundreds of internal optimizations to make your TV watching experience better.

The Hulu Plus app is available for free in the App Store today. Users must be Hulu Plus subscriber to access content on the iPad app.
