Welcome to the second edition of Best Mobile Apps Of The Week. I hope you liked our first edition of the Best Mobile Apps of The Week. Hopefully, readers will like the second edition as well. In this edition, we will introduce our readers to a scrobbler client for Symbian, a video streaming app for iOS and an application to control iTunes playback on your PC/laptop via your Android handset.
Here are the featured mobile apps of the week for iOS, Symbian and Android:
Air Video (iOS)
Air Video for iOS is one brilliant application. The application streams the video present in the user’s PC either via Wi-Fi or via 3G to his/her iOS based device. The biggest advantage of Air Video is that it is able to stream videos in almost any format to your iOS device. The application also has a very handy feature of converting videos on the fly and streaming it right to your iOS device. Users need to make sure that the Air Video server application is installed on your PC so that the application can work properly.
Air Video is available for iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad and users can download it from the AppStore for $2.99.
Last.fm is a very popular Internet radio site. Many Last.fm clients are available for various operating systems. For Symbian, Mobbler is a very popular Last.fm radio player and scrobbler client. The application allows users to listen to a variety of Internet radio stations offered by Last.fm.
The application is pretty slick as well and supports some useful features like scrobbling all your tracks when the phone is connected to a Wi-Fi network etcetera. The application supports the different versions of Symbian S60v3 (FP2), S60v5 and Symbian^3.
Symbian users can download Mobbler for free from here.
Remote For iTunes (Android)
In our first edition of the Best Mobile Apps of The Week, we told you about a very handy application for iOS Remote. Today, we would like to introduce you to the Android alternative of Remote Remote For iTunes. Remote For iTunes works exactly like Remote for iOS does. The application allows users to control the media playback of iTunes running on their PC or Laptop via their Android handset through Wi-Fi.
The interface of the application is a pretty simple as well. According to me, one drawback of the application is that it does not feature the CoverFlow UI. Nevertheless, the Remote For iTunes is a must have application if you use iTunes on your PC.
The only difference between Remote for iOS and Android is that while the former is available for free, the latter costs $4.99.
