Whether you're a beginner, intermediate or advanced user, you'll find something worthwhile in our Ultimate iPhone User Guide. Today we look at multimedia apps.
What's that, you've gotten yourself a shiny new iPhone? Our comprehensive guide
to getting the most out of your iPhone will have you up and running in no time.
The iPhone works as a great portable movie player - provided your movies are encoded in a very specific format and resolution. It’s more likely, however, that your videos are encoded in DivX or XviD, in which case the excellent CineXPlayer ($4.49) can play them natively. But transferring movies to your iPhone isn’t strictly necessary. You could use an app like Air Video ($2.99) for streaming videos directly from your computer over 3G or Wi-Fi. As for music, if you’re the sort that can never quite remember the name of a song or artist, Shazam Encore ($6.49) will refresh your memory by ‘listening’ to just a few seconds of the song. Once you tire of the music stored on your iPhone, TuneIn Radio (free) gives you access to over 50,000 radio stations around the world, and Music Downloader+Player ($5.49) lets you search for, download and play music directly from your iPhone.Need to know more?
