Apologies to all iPhonegizmo FANS and check out this freebie!

August 16th, 2011 by admin

The iphonegizmo team apologizes for the lengthy “holiday” we were forced to take over the last three weeks. This is the first time since its inception four years ago that our site has ever been “off the air” for any reason. So you could say the holiday was overdue!

Air Playit - Streaming Video to iPhone

However, it was an unplanned holiday- so we missed out on all the fun of looking forward to it!

We are now back and atem  - and will be doing our usual posts about hot new iPhone download freebies for you.

To kick the show off, we recommend you take a look at this great deal - a super easy way to get movies onto your iphone to watch - for free!! (Of course)

You will need to download the free Air Playit App from iTunes and also need to download the “cloud-based” Air Playit server to your desktop (works with both PCs and Macs. Then, wherever you are - if you can access wifi,  you can down load a movie from your PC/Mac to your iPhone and watch it at your leisure!

e:A couple of helpful pointers for you so that you get this great free movie downloader with ease.

1) TheAir Playit  site is quite busy. Take a look at the image below to see where to go to download the server software you need:

2) Either follow our link to the app -or make sure you spell it right in iTunes - its “Air Playit”. iTunes has gotten sloppier as its gotten bigger and if you type in, for example,  “Airplayit”, you will be served up everything BUT the app you want!

3) Follow the directions given on the site in their User Guide

Note: we found we had to disable the firewall for the connection between the local server and the iPhone to work.

Oh, BTW - Air Playit does not support media files purchased from iTunes  (and so are protected by DRM). Apparently,  the next version will support DRM protected videos.


Free Legal iPhone Movie Downloads?

December 13th, 2010 by admin

A lot of readers to this blog are seeking to find where they can get hold of iPhone moves. Let’s face it, iTunes pretty much has it wrapped up - and its expensive wrapping.

All the same we have managed to find several great free sources of free iPhone movies - you can find them using search in the right hand side bar! But this post is about a recently discovered new source of movies for our iPhone. And depending on how many movies you download, you are looking at paying cents not $$!! And that includes masses of TV shows as well.

Check it out (You need to scroll down to see all the info about movies - but its worth it!):

Free iPhone Movies

This is the best LEGAL alternative source for (almost free) movies and TV shows we have found.

Merry Christmas !!

Free Animation Videos for our iPhones

October 15th, 2010 by admin

Origins of American Animation

This is just a quick post to let you know that the Library of Congress  has made over two dozen animations available for us to watch on our iPhones. The animations represent some of the earliest ever made in the USA and are also some of the best early animations made. The collection includes animations made between 1900 and 1920 - so one hundred years ago now!

All sorts of  animation genre have been included: clay,  pen drawings (those early forms are really fascinating), puppets and cut-outs. So check out this collection of free videos to watch next time you have a trip and want to watch something you haven’t already seen two dozen times before!

Five Star iPhone Movie For 99¢!

August 4th, 2010 by admin

This recently released movie is called The Weathered Underground. Its USP is that it’s an interactive film - well,  actually, its an App that allows us to decide how the movie ends (so its gotta be a five star film, right!). The App  is currently on offer for the next week at 99¢ instead of the usual $3.99. It is billed as having hundreds of choices with dozens of endings.

The App was released about a month ago and has rave reviews (all are 5 star ratings - maybe a little help from friends?).

Take a look

Update - Now We Can Watch Facebook Videos On Our iPhone!

June 20th, 2010 by admin


And this was almost great news!

The iPhonegizmop team went into immediate action on hearing about this update, which - according to facebook means:

You can now watch Facebook videos on iPhone.

OK, sweet, we thought! Finally a way to get round the restrictions of watching videos on our iPhone. So, having first updated our facebook app to version 3.1.3, off we trot to CBS and grab the latest NCIS vid:

Facebook Videos on iPhone

Then, we send it to Facebook. And yes, that worked - we could watch the video there (OK, so that’s as expected). Looking good, so far.

Facebook Videos on iPhone

Yep, here is Ziva being sworn in as a US citizen.

Step 3, open our iphone facebook app. And, yep - there is the video - woo hoo!

Click “play” and get:

Facebook Videos on iPhone

So, what videos can we watch? Well, YouTube, of course. But now we can watch the YouTube Videos posted to Facebook on our iPhones. Hmmm - we are underwhelmed.

Now what was the latest NCIS episode called again? Oh yeah: Rule 51 - which happens to be “SOMETIMES -YOU’RE WRONG”. Something for Apple to think about!

Stop fighting you guys and just fix it so we can watch all the great videos out there on our iPhone. We don’t CARE what your argument is about! Just wanna watch this stuff on our iPhone. This is just too bad.

Oh, and BTW - there is no designated video button we can use to view the videos our friends have posted (like on Facebook). And THAT means we have to wait til one of our friends posts a video and then catch it in the “stream” before it passes by!!

We are underwhelmed by the update, I’m afraid. Coulda been good. Just too little to really get excited about it.
