Movie server maker Kaleidescape today announced the
availability of a free app for iPhone that simplifies the
movie-shopping experience for Kaleidescape customers.
The app scans a DVD or Blu-ray Disc barcode, and then displays
whether or not that title is on the owner's Kaleidescape
System, and if so, in what format. This eliminates the
frustration of buying a movie only to find out later that you
already own it. The app also provides information from the
exclusive Kaleidescape Movie Guide, including a brief synopsis
and details such as director, cast, aspect ratio, running time,
and rating. The Kaleidescape Movie Guide has recently been
expanded to include more than 4,000 Blu-ray Disc titles.
The Kaleidescape app for iPhone recognizes UPC barcodes, and is
designed for use by Kaleidescape customers in the US. The app
can be downloaded here
