Major update features, improved interface, stability and faster searching.
NEW UDUPI, India, March 11, 2008 – Global Delight Technologies Pvt. Ltd., today released Public Beta 2 of its debut product Web2 Delight, a video/photo downloader, organizer and viewer. Web2 Delight allows users to locate favorite videos and photos from popular content sharing sites from a single location. Users can preview and download content to create seamless collections, watch the collections from within the application or transfer them to iTunes or iPhoto and from there to their iPod, iPhones or Apple TV. What differentiates Web2 Delight from other similar applications is the sheer simplicity in its interface and its ability to marry the power of Web2.0 to the simplicity of Mac.
Web2 Delight cocoons popular video sharing sites like YouTube, Veoh, blip.tv, Eyespot and photo sharing sites like Flickr, Picasa, Webshots and Photobucket, all in a single place, reducing the effort required in opening multiple browser tabs. It automatically converts any video or photo downloaded, to play on your Mac, iPod, iPhone, or even on your Apple TV. The search feature is remarkable allowing the user to search for their favorite videos and photos. The feature set extends itself to allowing users to schedule their downloads at any time convenient to them. Creating slideshows, burning collections and Apple Remote integration is definitely an icing on the cake.
Web2 Delight made waves at Macworld 2008, San Francisco where it was unveiled as its first Public Beta. Mac enthusiasts thronged to capture a glimpse of the demo and described it as “Google of video and photo sharing site” and "iTunes for Web”. David Chartier in his review of Web2 Delight on Arstechnica said, “While there are a handful of desktop apps for viewing and downloading content from these sites (license and copyright issues aside), a new app in beta called Web2 Delight may be the first to tackle the task of being a portal for multiple video and photo communities”.
“It is not just another pretty face, but a better way to deliver entertainment by reinventing the Web2.0 experience", said Rohith Bhat, CEO of Global Delight. "You always get to watch lots of videos and photos on the TV and Internet. But maintaining a cool collection of favorite videos and photos and watching them on the go is simply awesome! Those delightful moments are priceless!”
Web2 Delight Public Beta – 2 can be evaluated for 30 days trial period. The downloaded application will run without any feature lock during the first twenty days and some of the features will lock themselves beyond this period. The release is expected towards the end of March 2008.
