Now playing: Quickflix streaming to iPads and iPhones

Stream movies and TV to your iPad or iPhone over 3G

Quickflix users can now stream movies and TV shows directly to their Apple devices with the launch of dedicated apps for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.

The Quickflix WatchNow app opens up the company’s library of movies and TV shows to iOS; the service is already available to PC and Mac users through a Web browser, as well as most new Samsung, Panasonic, Sony TVs and Blu-ray players.

The WatchNow app will work over a mobile 3G connection as well as Wi-Fi; A Quickflix spokesperson told GoodGearGuide that streaming video quality would depend on the connection, saying 'WiFi typically provides a consistent bit rate for the user. 3G is network dependent, and fluctuations may impact continuity on occasion."

iPad and iPhone streaming will run in standard definition. Quickflix does offer HD movies to some devices like Smart TVs and games consoles.

Movies and TV shows from Quickflix’s ‘Latest’ and ‘Featured’ categories are available through the app, and users can search by genre, title, actor, director or TV series. Parental controls can also be set to restrict movie access.

Quickflix is a subscription service — as well as offering postal DVD and Blu-ray titles, subscribers can stream video for an additional monthly fee. A flat-rate streaming-only subscription offers unlimited movies and TV shows for $14.99 per month.

Although Quickflix's Web and Smart TV services also allow individual pay-per-view movie downloads without a subscription, the WatchNow iOS apps will not — the streaming mobile service is for monthly subscribers only.

Users without a Quickflix subscription can also use the WatchNow app for movie trailers, Hollywood gossip news and videos.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
