Video from you and your friends - all in one place that goes anywhere.
Boxee for iPad brings videos from Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and your computer all onto your ipad so you can find and watch new videos or favorites on the train, in bed, on the couch, on the john, during boring conversation, on the patio, from the roof deck, in an abandoned bunker, on the side of a mountain....
Never miss a hilarious or inspiring new video from your friends again. Boxee connects to your social life and delivers every video your friends share on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr to your iPad. Return the favor and share favorites with two taps. Boxee brings video sharing to the iPad in a way that’s simple and unique.
Each day, we’re bombarded by video from everywhere. Collect them in one place and save them for later with Boxee. Queue YouTube videos, TED talks, and, well, whatever you want to watch on your iPad, whenever you want. Your commute just got its own video playlist.
Stop wasting hours converting and syncing videos to your iPad. Boxee streams videos from your PC/Mac to your iPad over WiFi. You pick the video, we handle the rest — no cables or wires necessary.

Here's what press have said:
"The reason Boxee’s iPad app rules, is because it’s two steps ahead of the rest in the Web TV game, offering the ubiquitous convenience of syncing with your computer, iPhone and Boxee on your TV."
"Boxee's iPad App is (almost) like Flipboard and Instapaper for Web Video"
"If it sounds like I'm excited about trying this one, I am… If Boxee works even half as well as advertised, it's well worth the investment."
"The Boxee iPad app’s coolest feature is the ability to send videos from your PC to your iPad wirelessly without having to slog through conversion processes."
"Do you love watching videos on your iPad or iPad 2 but get frustrated by the long conversion process or transferring, especially if you constantly update your tablet with new shows? Well, you no longer have to do all that anymore. Boxee has just launched its iPad app that will allow you to stream just about any video format from your computer to your iPad and if you have a Boxee Box, you can even push video from your tablet to it – talk about useful!"
"We tested the app's Mac-to-iPad streaming and it works exceptionally well. If you're looking for a free way to stream video (of almost any kind -- we tried AVI, WMV and MP4 and all did well except when certain older codecs hammered the CPU causing the fans to blow) the Boxee app is quite good.
The bookmarklet is also great as it's like Instapaper for video."

"If you haven’t played with Boxee yet, you’ll love its first iPad app, which just hit the Apple store today. And even if you are a Boxee pro, this is one more way to enjoy the Web’s entertainment while you’re on the go- whether from your bed, couch, or 30,000 feet in the air. In case you haven’t heard of Boxee, it’s one of the most awesome ways to bring movies, TV shows, photos and music from the web to your TV– and now it’s on your iPad."
