Joost Client Released for iPhone, iPod Touch

Joost, the on-demand video streaming service for the Mac by the creators of Skye and Kazaa, has now arrived for the iPhone and iPod touch handsets. The free client, which is available on the iTunes App Store, allows users to browse through and view and listen to popular movies, TV shows, music and videos.

In a blog post published on Saturday, Joost's Matt Zelesko offered the following:

"...…it means another way to view our ever-expanding library of content on Joost. The first version of the iPhone application provides access to our full content library via Wi-Fi. You can browse, search, or simply enjoy some of our most popular programs. Personally, I’ve found it to be a great way to enjoy our extensive music video library and settle some of those “who did that song?” bets at the same time."

For users looking to get into Joost, the service's video library boasts more than 46,000 videos and requires iPhone OS 2.1 or later to install and run.
