Kinoma Play Review
Newly Released Kinoma Play Mobile Media Browser Sets New Standard For On-Board & Streaming Video, Audio and Pictures on Your Windows Mobile Treo Pro & 800w Smartphone
As I mentioned yesterday, Palm’s new Treo Pro has been rocking my world for the last few days and although I’ve been putting it through its paces I’ve probably explored lesss than 50% of its capabilities – every time I think that I’ve covered it all something new pops up.
One of the these new things was the rather timely release yesterday of the spectacular Kinoma Play – an application that the company calls the “World’s First Mobile Media Browser” and which I naturally promptly installed.
At its most basic Kinoma Play is a Windows Mobile software that allows you to view, play, stream, download, email, share and post all sorts of video, audio (MP3’s, audiobooks, podcasts, radio +more) and pictures via your Windows Mobile Treo smartphone from thousands of sources including Audible, YouTube, Live365, SHOUTcast, ABC, CNN and Flickr – all of these sources are conveniently included and accessed from the Kinoma Guide.
From the main Kinoma Play screen (image above left) you gain access to:
My Media Files
Whether your personal media files are saved on the smartphone or on your memory card Kinoma Play indexes everything and neatly files it here. You can quickly Search for any media files no matter if you have 10 or 10,000 of them on your device or go directly to one of the media categories created by Kinoma Play (Movies, Music, Pictures, Audiobooks, Playlists, Downloads, My Documents or Storage Card).
