A few days ago a company called kinoma announced their media player for Windows Mobile. It’s touted as the “world’s first mobile media browser” and there’s a lot of praise around the internet for this software. Is it deserved? Well, in a word. Yes.
Although there are a few compatibility issues, and the free version we tried seemed to have difficulty auto-detecting the bandwidth available(you can set in manually though), it’s a very polished and flexible application. This isn’t just a video player – it’ll suck your iTunes library in, quickly grab and index your entire phone content, play thousands of internet radio stations, upload and share FlickR images, view webcams, play Orb files, get podcasts, listen to audible books, view your pictures and much more.
Oh, and don’t forget that it’ll upload and play YouTube videos straight out of the box – even the free version. Check it out below. Brilliant.
It’s not just about the specs though – this is a swish and smooth application which is a joy to use. You’ll quickly find yourself binning your existing photo-viewing application and showing your images with kinoma. It’s so fluid and quick. Try it now, grab your phone and punch in http://kinoma.com/freeplay/download/ for the CAB file to install direct to your handset. There’s a quick registration process to confirm you as a user, then you’re off. The Kinoma FreePlay version lets you do most of the cool stuff, however the Kinoma Play version includes loads of cool extras.
