Apple iPhone and iPod Touch Get Joost Wi-Fi Web Videos

Joost has completed its Web video application for the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch. The free app enables mobile devices to view videos over a Wi-Fi connection.

Joost has deployed a new application for the Apple Inc iPhone 3G and iPod Touch to watch videos over a Wi-Fi connection. Wireless devices can get free applications from Apple’s App Store.

“Offering Joost on the iPhone and iPod touch is an important step for Joost as we endeavor to offer users premium entertainment, where they want it and when they want it,” Joost CEO Mike Volpi said in a statement.

The global Web video service recently expanded with 11 new content partners. Wireless devices such as the iPhone 3G can now watch thousands of hours of anime, comedy, drama, movies, music, documentaries, sci-fi, and sports over their Wi-Fi connections.

Joost also added nine independent music labels to its content library. There are now more than 18,000 music videos, interviews, and live performances on hand for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

“The internet has redefined music and made it possible for a more diverse range of artists – discovered and fostered by independent labels – to find commercial success and make it big,” Danny Passman, global head of programming, said in a statement.

Apple iPhone and iPod Touch users can browse through popular videos by category or from an online search. The global Web video service provider offers more than 46,000 videos and 18,000 music videos. The library also contains 400 TV series and 1,200 movies.
