More and more major applications are hitting the iPhone this week. Up next we have Amazon Instant Video. If your not familiar with Amazon Instant Video, you have been missing out. It is a Netflix like service that allows you to stream videos anywhere.
If you are an Amazon Prime member, you get access to Unlimited instant streaming of thousands of movies and TV shows with Prime Instant Videos as well as FREE 2-day shipping. This is a great service and highly recommended. Students get a discount too!
Amazon Instant Video has been available on the iPad for awhile now, and lots of people have been waiting for the service to hit the iPhone so they can watch TV shows and movies on the go. The only downside of the app is that it requires a Wi-Fi connection. This is a major turn off right now. Hopefully they update the app soon and allow streaming over 3G, 4G, and LTE. There are still plently of people that have an unlimited data plan, and a lot of the times the cell phone companies internet speeds are faster than home Wi-Fi networks.
Another downfall of the application is that Airplay is not supported at this time, so if you were planning on streaming videos through your Apple TV, you will have to jailbreak your Apple TV and use XBMC. Hopefully Amazon will address these issues in a future update. In the mean time enjoy your Prime videos on your Wi-Fi network.
