Blue Plate Special: Air Video free for iPhone (Gear Diary)

Last week I was syncing my wife’s iPhone and she told me she wished a couple of movies would fit on her phone. I could fit a movie on the phone, but would have to delete some of her music which she did not want me to do. When our boys go to bed, she sits in their room while they doze off and plays on her phone so that is a perfect opportunity to watch some video. I immediately went to the app store and began to search for a solution and found Air Video Free.

Air Video Free allows users to watch videos without syncing their device. There is no need to format movies on the hard drive for iPhone video or use iTunes. The application simply points to a folder on your desktop and plays the videos over a wifi connection. Videos may also be available over 3G if the router supports UPnP or NAT-PMP protocols. Now my wife can sit on the boys’ bed at night and watch a movie without adding to her iPhone hard drive.
