Just more than a week after announcing support for iOS 4.x devices, Vidyo today launched VidyoMobile for Apple's (Nasdaq: AAPL) iPhone 4S.

The app, available now in the iTunes App Store, allows iPhone 4S users of Vidyo's videoconferencing platform to video conference with up to four endpoints and share content.

Apple's launch of iOS 5 earlier this month prompted a flurry of videoconferencing app rollouts for Apple mobile devices looking to take advantage of the operating system's new features.

Vidyo, which in September announced it had landed $22.5 million in VC to expand its sales and marketing, was among those companies announcing updated apps, and it promised support for the iPhone 4S eventually.

Today's announcement helps it take full advantage of videoconferencing's most visible trend, mobility. The company said the iPhone 4S, because of its more robust processor, will deliver the same experience on the iPhone 4S that it delivers on the iPad 2 including a pinch to zoom capability which enables a better user experience when sharing content on a small screen or even enlarging a given participant.

"VidyoMobile delivers an unmatched multipoint experience on the iPhone 4S and enables mobile workers to hold a true enterprise video conference system in the palms of their hands," said Ofer Shapiro, CEO and co-founder of Vidyo.

VidyoMobile can participate in conferences with more than 100 participants, displaying up to 4 participants at a time on the iPhone 4S and iPad 2. It provides the user the ability to customize the view and select presentation materials to improve collaboration.  Participants are displayed using the active speaker feature, which automatically displays the current and the last few speakers.
