Cool iPhone Apps: Air Stream

As cool as the iPhone 4 coming, on February 10, to Verizon is, it's not the only cool news about iOS as you can see in the above video. Yes, in addition to AirStream and StreamItToME, there's another iOS app that will allow you to turn your trusty iPhone into a nifty and cool set top box for your TV. Its called Video Stream and this newly updated $3 app comes with a free trial version, so if your interested, you can download it directly from iTunes.

Personally, I rarely watch television, but if I did this looks to be the perfect companion to compliment your TV viewing. According to Gizmodo:

"Video Stream, like AirVideo or StreamToMe, is an app that streams video from PCs and Macs to iOS devices with the help of a companion program installed on the main machine. It'll re-encode on the fly to make virtually any format play nice with Apple's fussy gadgets, and you can choose to download those re-encoded copies to your device for local playback. Nice."

In conclusion, it's apps like Video Stream that help lift the iPhone and other iOS devices above the likes of their competition. There are certainly some cool apps for the various other copy cat iPhone and iPads, but nothing quite like the breath and quality that you find for the iOS platform.



And that's my 2 cents 4 this Wednesday, February 2, 2011
