MoviPod movie guide released for iPods

PocketSensei has announced the first VideoHound MoviPod module for the iPod—MoviPod Academy Award Winners. The software puts an extensive movie guide on your iPod. “MoviPod offers reviews of Academy Award winners from 1927 to the present day with witty reviews, comprehensive filmographical facts, and entertaining trivia questions. Additional features include: extensive hyperlinks, easy one-click navigation and even insider notes revealing behind-the-scenes fun facts. Additional modules based upon VideoHound categories bring VideoHound’s unique and entertaining collections to the iPod. Each MoviPod will contain hundreds of the top movies of each genre—or perhaps the worst stinkers.” Each MoviPod module costs $1.95. Academy Award Winners is the only title available now.

I was curious about this so went to the site, but I cannot find any option to download an iPod version of any of these databases; all of the drop down options are for various PDAs like Palm Pilots.

Okay, I finally figured out that you can just ignore the “select device” option when purchasing the MoviPod module. Now that I’ve tried it out, I have to say that it is very elegantly designed.

The vendors point out that the iPod software limits you to 1,000 notes, so they will be limited in what they can provide. Too bad! I would like to have this functionality with the entire massive database of all movies in the thick VideoHound paperback volume. That would be the perfect companion to a visit to the movie rental store.
