This week, Yannick Compernol launched a first version of Be Tv. This is a mobile television guide for Belgian Channels, including Een, Ketnet, Canvas, VTM, VT4, VijfTV, Vitaya, TMF, JIM, Prime, … He also included other European channels like MTV, BBC1, BBC2, BBC World, ARD, ZDF, WDR, France1, Franc2, CNN, …
A very rich and useful mobile application that offers an answer to ‘what’s on the television tonight’ with one click! I asume Yannick will be working on updates like ‘tagging’ a progam etc.. but it is a very good start. Try it out Be Tv (only available in the Belgian Appstore )

Via Serge, I saw that Atlantic Records launched a mobile version of their Fanbase application. While some of you may already be reaching for their iPhones, Atlantic Records chose to built the app for the widest possible reach by picking Flash Lite as the platform. The mobile version has the exact same feature set as the desktop version. Serge recorded a quick demo of the mobile application this morning.
Atlantic Records now takes full advantage of all that content in their Fanbase application. This free application puts the latest information from artists/muscicians on to the fans desktops. The app features an audio player (powered by imeem), chat room (powered by Meebo) and a continuous feed of all the official and ‘unofficial’ news, photos and videos aggregated from all over the web. With one download, music fans now have access to all available information from one application. The application is built on top of AIR and thus runs on Mac, Windows and Linux.
