Plizy -- free iPad app aggregates videos that you like

Just launched yesterday, the free video app Plizy, bills itself as a combination of Flipboard and Pandora. It offers channels of video and uses an intelligence engine to generate videos based on your interests. There are scores of channels available in a wide range of categories, or you can create your own channel. Plus, it creates channels based on your Facebook and Twitter accounts. Your Facebook channel, for example, consists of videos that your friends have posted. You can share videos you like, and mark them so that Plizy remembers your preferences.

Please is currently being rolled out on an invitation basis. Go to the Plizy website to request one. Or, since I have 5 invitations to give out, you can get one from me by giving me your email address.

I'm impressed. I enjoy prehistory so created a Prehistory channel. Plizy served up some great videos.
