More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
MyPlayer Updated to v1.26
Since the popularisation of Video on Demand websites such as Hulu in the US and BBC iPlayer in the UK, the mobile community has been screaming out for an app that can turn their web-enabled devices into portable media libraries, simply by granting them access to these services. Luckily, Windows Mobile users have FryWalker‘s myPlayer app, which does exactly that.
The already-popular application allows users to stream programmes they have recently missed, save these programmes for later or even watch live TV. It bundles content from iPlayer, Hulu, Five on Demand, MSN and SBS, and has been recently updated to fix some bugs, add support for new Hulu additions such as The Cleveland Show and 24, and allow users to save radio shows from the BBC as .mp3s.
To get the most out of the app, you should have a UK based internet connection (for access to 5OD and iPlayer), .NET Compact Framework 2.0 and a suitably powerful media player, such as CorePlayer v1.3.6. Find the .cab in the application thread.
