BBC iPlayer on the iPhone

image There is no application as yet to allow you to watch any content from the BBC’s iPlayer website it is not a problem. If you actually visit the website within the iPhones Safari browser you can actually watch all the content without a problem. The videos on the iPlayer site, when selected, open up and play through the iPhones inbuilt Quicktime video player. It works really well and the quality is great too. You have to be in the UK though to enjoy it due to licensing. Video of it in action after the break.

Wide Email application for iPhone

image As you are no doubt aware the iPhone cannot be used in landscape mode to compose emails which is another strange quirk that we are waiting for Apple to address. Until that time we have seen various applications that can help. One such application is Wide Email which gives you this functionality but more importantly also gives you short cuts for well used phrases or words. For example I can program the letters mta and the keyboard will automatically type Mobile Tech Addicts. Take a look at the video after the break to see how well this application works.
