AUSTIN, Texas—Israeli start-up Deja today at South by Southwest (SXSW) announces the release of the all new app Deja for iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch) calling it “the best way to enjoy Social TV on your mobile devices.” Deja co-founder Nimrod Ram is at SXSW and will be at the i: Made in Israel trade show booth (#1100) all day Tuesday to demo and discuss the app.

Ram says, “Now you can watch all the videos from your favorite websites and social networks as personalized TV channels whenever and wherever you like. Following our critically acclaimed iPad app, the new iPhone version offers an entirely new approach to video for the YouTube generation.”

The Deja app allows users to collaborate with a community of like-minded video ‘curators’ to create customized and vibrant, live video channels filled with content that they care about. There, they can discover cool new videos and influence what’s being broadcasted in realtime. From there, they can use Deja to transform their iPhone and iPad into a powerful remote control and enjoy all their videos on any Airplay-enabled TV.

Available today on the App Store, Deja gives users the best tools to discover and broadcast the greatest videos out there.
