iPhone/iPad App Now Available on iTunes

Note:  ReelPortal will be available on other markets outside the U.S. once export paperwork is approved.

ReelPortal is now officially available on iTunes App Store in the U.S. and Canada.  At this time, I want to limit the roll out to see if the ReelPortal server can handle the increased load.

The original goal is to have many independent servers at different locations, so people can choose the server that works best for their location.  It would also avoid the single-point of failure scenario.  However, with limited budget, I can only afford one small server on the East Coast USA currently.

You can help out with a donation here.  Or if you can host a ReelPortal server for public use, that would help.  Otherwise, you can also click on the various advertisements on this blog ;).

Note: If you are on a single-core iDevice (i.e. not iPad2), set your video resolution to 320x240, because the CPU can't really handle the higher 640x480 resolution.

  3. Hi Mark,

    ReelPortal is currently only available on iTunes in the US. It will be available in other markets once I get the correct export paperwork approved. This issue is strictly limited to iOS, because on other platforms, ReelPortal runs on Adobe AIR/Flash, which Adobe had presumably done the export paperwork for.


  4. is there a time frame on it coming to Canada?

  5. Hello Thuyen,

    Just tested this app with my PB and office laptop and am very impressed and excited to have this instead of the painful wait for Skype to come around to supporting the PB. But do you have an update regarding time frame for Canadian availability? Appreciate your efforts with this very functional and needed app.



  6. Hi Flynn,

    I did some preliminary research (googling) on this, but it looks involved. I'm not very good with all these legalese stuff. It's on my to do list, but not sure when it's going to be done.
