Pick of the Day: Swift via

I religiously watch The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, and some other such shows. But why not watch them faster? Swift is one of many apps I’ve tried which speed up video playback without distorting the audio at all – I can watch some shows at 2x playback speed without issue.

Many apps do this, but Swift integrates really well with YouTube too. Want to listen to a lecture from YouTube at 2x speed? Plop the URL into this app and you can do so, and even download the entire video for offline playback Or just play videos already in your library. Or stream over your local home network. Lots of other cool features too. More than worth the $3 I paid for it.
