BBC iPlayer iPhone appWhile you can already watch your favorite British TV programs on your iPhone using the BBC iPlayer service from their website, it looks like the BBC are developing an iPhone App which should bring a wider range of new BBC iPlayer services to the iPhone.

The new BBC iPlayer app even could feature a download option, which would allow you to download your favorite TV show directly to your iPhone. That way you could watch it whenever you want. Some other features include the ability to watch live TV. There’s nothing official from the BBC yet on when the app will be available.

eBay app hits BlackBerry App WorldApple’s AppStore and Nokia’s Ovi Store aren’t the only ones with good stuff. BlackBerry’s APP World also has a few good things. Here’s one. If you do a lot of online shopping, eBay has designed an application for BlackBerry handset users.

It’s a full feature application designed to also accept PayPal payments.

Users can also schedule auction-related reminders in the BlackBerry calendar. This app is available as a free download from App World.

The First ELSE Phone

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on November 24th, 2009

The First ELSE PhoneThe First ELSE is an interesting mobile phone. The idea is that it’s centered around the user experience, rather than the phone itself. The First ELSE has the phone as an application on the device, rather than being the main function of the device. The camera is the same way.

We don’t yet know which operator will be getting this, but Pocket-lint did spot some representatives from Orange at the event. Target markets for the phone are the US, Western Europe and Russia. They just might be onto something here.

Posted in kindle by Conner Flynn on November 10th, 2009

Kindle app for PCAmazon has just expanded the audience for its ebook format with the Beta release of its free Kindle for PC application. That’s a good thing too, considering all of the competition they now have. The app will allow you to read the Kindle format on your Windows PC.

A version for Mac users is “coming soon”. How many of you will use this? Or will you just opt for a different ebook format? If Amazon would do away with the proprietary stuff and use a common standard they would widen their audience even more and we wouldn’t have to sync across a few devices.

Turn your Windows 7 Laptop into a Wi-Fi hotspotVirtual Wi-Fi was going to be a Windows 7 feature that would turn your PC into a Wi-Fi access-point so devices could share a connection without needing special software. It didn’t make it into the final cut on the OS, but this free app finishes the work that Microsoft abandoned.

Some of the code that Microsoft Research used to virtualize one Wi-Fi card as several adapters still made its way into Windows 7, allowing Connectify to complete the job.

Posted in kindle by Conner Flynn on October 22nd, 2009

Kindle app for PCAmazon is preparing to launch its Kindle application for Windows PCs. The app will let you download and read content that was previously available for the Kindle. There’s also an iPhone app already available. You don’t need a Kindle to use the Kindle app for Windows, but you will need to create an account.

The thinking is that Windows 7′s new touch features might make it a good reading platform, plus it gets the content into more hands. Don’t worry Mac users, yours is coming soon. Maybe on a Mac Tablet.

Viper is creating a keyless future with their new iPhone app that unlocks and starts your car for you.

Dymo CardScan for Windows Mobile launches

cardscanmobile-logoI used to have a job years ago where I actually left the house and had to talk to people. I even collected a fair share of business cards, which I tended to throw away because I was too lazy to put the data into a database of any sort. If you need to collect business cards for your work, but are sick of manual entry of the data, Dymo has a new app for Windows Mobile devices for you.

The app is called Dymo CardScan Mobile and works with Windows Mobile 6+ devices that have cameras with at least 2-megapixels. All you need to do to get the information from the business card into your phone is take a picture of the card with your phones camera.

You may remember Pizza Hut’s iPhone app. A farewell to human interaction isn’t the only reason to use it anymore. Now they are giving you 20% off if you use it.

The app does the usual gimmicky stuff like pinching a pizza to make it smaller or larger and shaking the phone to make wings spicy as well as store all your coupons. This 20% off deal allows you get fatter and lonelier that much quicker. So hurray, I guess.

PlayOn video-streaming app comes to the WiiTomorrow the folks at MediaMall will officially announce the beta release of PlayOn for Wii. The software license costs $39.99 and there’s also a 14-day free trial so you can try it out first and decide if you like watching Hell’s Kitchen and the like on your Wii.

Me, I’d rather play some Mario Kart. PlayOn for Wii works in the same way as it does for the other game systems and streams Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and a few other online video portals from your Windows XP or Vista computer to the Wii plugged into your TV.
