We released a free new NFB iPhone app yesterday. The app lets you watch hundreds of animated films and documentaries from, streaming, on your iPhone or iPod touch.

The app is free and you can download it here [iTunes Link]

Also, if you have time, please let us know what you think about the app – any features you’d like us to add / fix. Send us an email at Thanks!
