OrbLive 2 media for iPhone
Orb Networks on Thursday launched OrbLive 2.0, the latest version of its media application for the iPhone 3G and iPod touch. The original version was created before the App Store was opened, and required users to jailbreak their phones. The new (official) app allows the mobile devices to access media that is available on a home PC, including videos, music, live television and webcams. OrbLive works via any available data network, such as WiFi and 2G or 3G connections.
OrbLive 2.0 is available from the App Store, as a fully capable download for $10 or a free trial that is limited to playing three random titles of each media type.
