Joost iPhone app
Onilne service Joost says it has published a native supporting application for iPhone and iPod touch owners. The app lets users view hosted video, which is normally restricted for Apple handhelds due to the latter's incompatibility with Flash. Joost claims to have over 400 TV shows and 1,200 movies on its network, as well as some 18,000 music videos. Content is divided into genres such as anime, comedy, drama and sports.
The iPhone and Touch interface is arranged to let users browse by category, a list of the most popular clips, or picks by Joost staff. People searching for a specific video can run a manual search. The main limitation of the software is connectivity, as video can only be streamed over Wi-Fi, not 3G or EDGE. The app is a free download from the App Store.
