• TVOut for a 60 Inch iPhone Screen

    If you wanted video out enabled for games and apps on your iPhone when you saw it working for the popular AppStore game Wingnuts Moto Chaser then your time has come. TVOut via Cydia provides you with the ability to make any application on your iPhone capable of sending a video out signal. Simply set which applications you want to be capable of video out via TVOut.app, plug in your AV cable to the iPhone and TV and you'll be all set. Simply run the application and it will show up on your TV!

    Controlling the app can be a bit difficult since the iPhones screen will be completely black while running an application that is sending video out -- you sort of have to guess where to tap the screen in order to navigate. Control this isn't much of a problem for simple apps (like Tris in the video above) and gameplay can actually be fairly enjoyable. TVOut also has a nice interface to turn it on and off for individual applications (below).

    While TVOut is pretty cool there are of course some things that are still being worked on by the developer Lance Fetters (ashikase). OpenGL applications like Google Earth don't currently display properly. Landscape mode is not currently an option but is on the docket for a future version. Also to be added in later are individual settings on a per-app basis.

    Want to play with some video out? You can grab TVOut via Cydia. Just search for "TVOut"
