iOS 9 Update: New features for your Haystack TV app

Happy Friday, everyone! We're wrapping up another busy week at Haystack TV, as we prepped for our new iOS 9 features to go live. If you already have the iOS 9 update, here are some cool things you can now do with your Haystack TV app.

Picture-in-Picture

We're super excited about this new feature. This iPad-only multitasking tool allows you to keep Haystack TV playing while doing something else on your tablet. Feel free to watch your headline news channel while browsing social media, checking your email or even searching the web for more background information on a news topic you're interested in. Want to learn more? The Streaming Media Blog did a great feature about us and how 'picture-in-picture' works.

Finally, let's talk about the new support for universal links. When you open www.haystack.tv links from our website on your mobile device, you will now get directed straight to our app. Watching and sharing videos from Haystack TV is going to be easier and more streamlined!
