The Apple iPhone has been criticised for lacking storage space. With a maximum capacity of just 32GB, users find it difficult to fit all the audio and video files they would like on the device.
The Air Video solves that problem by allowing users to stream video files over wireless and 3G networks to an iPhone or iPod Touch.
Users download a piece of software onto their desktop computer and then add the folders they want to access through the iPhone. Then, users set up the app and select the file they want to watch.
And while the iPhone requires a particular encoding format, users can stream the video while the app converts it “on the fly”. Users can watch video files without the need for conversion beforehand, while the app can place videos in a queue for conversion to be placed in a folder.

The software also allows video files to be streamed over 3G networks. It costs $3.99, but can be installed on the iPad as well.
