Qplay also took a page out of Twitter's book by adding hashtags. Say I want to watch videos that other Qplay users are sharing about the World Cup; tappable hashtags in Qplay's iPad app like #WorldCup and #soccer can help me discover videos for a customized playlist of what interests me.
While it's currently only available in iPad form, an Android version of Qplay is coming soon. The service remains restricted to the U.S. for now, thanks to the complications of broadcast rights.
