I have been using Kinoma Play for the past few months, and have been waiting for them to update this program for a while
This update brings with it a new feel and updated applications and features.
For those of you who don't know what it does, Kinoma will play all your media files on your device, including most video files, as well as streaming your video content straight from home via Orb, and access to Shoutcast and Live 365 a paid for service with loads more internet radio stations.
I have been using this for some time now, and have to say when you are in the car, this is brilliant if there is nothing you want to listen to on the radio. Decent quality and network limitations depending, this works as sweet as a nut!
But now Kinoma have updated the UI to look very similar to the iPhone, complete with an apps store, access to social networking sites like facebook and twitter, rss feed reader, as well as flickr, youtube and last.fm support.
It really does look excellent now, very finger friendly like the iPhone, and while its a way off from being the iPhone, it really does look impressive.
There are two flavours of this software, Kinoma freeplay and Kinoma Play, both of which require a minimum of WM5 to run.
Kinoma freeplay does exactly what it says on the tin and is their free client which is actually very very useable. Kinoma play costs $29.99 (£18.58 which is correct via xe.com at time of publishing).
I must confess I don't know if they have changed kinoma freeplay as yet, but I hope to have a full review of this software coming your way in the near future, so stay tuned! In the meantime, why not check it out for yourself?
