Have you ever thought of watching videos on your iPhone or iPad without the hassle of connecting iTunes and waiting for the movie conversion to finish? Well, we actually feels too restricted with how the big Apple does it.

Thankfully, an app lets you watch movies or clips straight from your PC/Mac without the wire. It's called AirVideo available at the App Store.

For those who haven't welcomed this idea. Imagine yourself holding an iPad, iPod Touch, or iPhone while watching movies at the comfort of your own bed... or at the coffee shop or the airport? Any where with a WiFi would do, without the storage restriction that your iOS device is very limited of allocating all your movie collection.
