Stream your entire music library to your iPod Touch, wherever you are!

The folks over at Simplfy Media have created one of the neatest 3rd party iPod Touch Apps I have seen to date. Thir "Simplify Media Mobile", enables you to stream your entire music library (i get lots of my hard to find electronica music at that resides on your home computer to your iPod Touch or iPhone. This can be done anywhere you find a wi-fi signal. If your friends also are running the application, they can give you access to their entire music libraries. Simply brilliant and FREE!

It's almost a sure thing that they will enable video streaming as well. Imagine you decide one Friday night you want to stay home, cuddle up with your girl (or guy) and watch a good movie.
With this application you could browse all of your friends video libraries and pick a movie you'd like to watch, DID I MENTION FREE?!

Check out the video below, and please feel free to bookmark this article below (or my page) if you found this useful. Thank you....!

P.S. Go to for details. Unfortunatley this application does require you to have "hacked" your iPod Touch. However if you don't want to do that, just wait a month or so and you will be able to run the unhacked version. (see my posts about Apple's release of the SDK)

Lifehacker releases top 20 iPod Touch apps

Here are over 20 iPod Touch apps for those of us eager to expand the capabilities of our iPod Touches.

Lifehacker notes that "The major new features appear to be the faux-GPS in Google Maps, multi-recipient SMS, and re-ordering apps on the home screen."

There is much more meat to the article which you can check out here.

A word of caution: In order to enable the use of these third party applications you must "jailbreak" (read "hack") your iPod Touch or iPhone. Lifehacker has posted an instructional on that here.

Rumors are that Apple will be releasing updated firmware this spring which will allow for "Apple approved" development and installation of 3rd party applications. So you may want to wait until then or you risk voiding your Apple warranty.

But if you want to be a cowboy and hack your iPod Touch or iPhone, ....then..
Guns A-Blazin'!
