CBS EyeMobile for iPhone
CBS is on the verge of launching its first iPhone app, according to a report form this week's CTIA expo. The app, titled EyeMobile, is not yet on the App Store, but has allegedly already been approved by Apple, and should be released within the near future. It serves as an extension of CBS' EyeMobile website, which accepts photos and videos from the public as a supplement to normal press coverage; on an iPhone, submitting photos to the site is automated.
The app might have been out much sooner, an anonymous CBS employee is said to claim, but Apple did not provide much information to the major TV networks, and so the latter responded slowly to the task of iPhone development. The employee insists, however, that there are no conflicts between the two corporations.
