During my Dublin vacation, I caught wind of the new iPhone Joost client via Twitter. Putting the hotel’s complimentary Internet connectivity to good use, I immediately downloaded the WiFi-only app. Joost’s content selection, while in Europe, was pretty sparse… especially in regards to what I’d call premium video. (Axl Rose riding an airport luggage carousel isn’t very compelling.) Here in the states, I have a much larger library of “real” content to choose from. Although, the iPhone index suffer from the same problem as the web-based selections: Offerings are entirely random and there may not be anything worthwhile. At my desk, I see this as a shortcoming. However while blowing time at an airport, browsing Joost it could be a fun exercise in discovery and distraction. Of course, I still believe the best solution is a Slingbox with access to my TiVo… So it’s too bad they haven’t released an iPhone SlingPlayer yet.
