The time is now! The impossible is now possible! The Giant Bomb iPhone Application For iPhone And iPhone-like Devices is now available for purchase in Apple's App Store!

Needless to say, we're pretty excited. Partially because the application is really cool. It'll let you watch all our videos... yeah, that means you can now catch up on the Persona 4 Endurance Run while driving cross-country. Or watch video reviews while standing in a game store.

Of course, text is also represented. You can dig through the database to view pages, read news stories like this one, reviews, all of that.

But we're also excited because it means that we finally get to show you this commercial we made for the application.

  
How can you say no to this amazing offer? You can't! Head over to the iTunes Store and turn $1.99 into an eternity of magical moments!

Update from the Engineering Team:

It looks like an older version of the app somehow made it onto Apple's webservers. Unfortunately the app will crash when trying to load more then 25 videos at a time (you can still view videos from the game pages). Also, news stories will show a broken image where the embedded videos (like the one in this story) should have appeared. Simply click that image to launch the video. An free update will go out as soon as possible so there's no reason to wait if you want Giant Bomb on your iPhone.

This is amazing. Congrats so much to everyone involved. Looks like a great product.

EDIT: Also, the commercial will go down in GiantBomb history. When the site is gone, it will go down as one of those videos that everyone remembers GiantBomb for.

Really impressed by the application so far. Shame about the low quality icon, though. Just makes it look a bit amatuer'ish amongst the rows and rows of applications on my primary (index?) page. Would have been nice to just have the logo with a transparent background, sort've like the Sky News one.

Also, that video was fucking hilarious. Bravo, sirs. Bravo.

Wave after wave of awesome...this is amazing. You had me at the dancing Vinny "icon" on the iPhone.

That said, I don't have any iPhone/iPod Touch/any other Apple devices I can purchase this kind of stuff on. Sorry for not being trendy enough. :(

Awesome - great to see it's out.


A few points:
  • The app is crashing for me whenever I try to 'Load 25 More' in the Videos section
  • It would also be great to see some sort of filtering in the Videos section; so I could get all of the Endurance Runs for example.
  • I can't see the whole title of stories/videos - so I don't know which Endurance Run episode I'm picking and have to go through them all.
  • Everything seems to be rather sparsely displayed - it could do with a lot more thinking through as to how everything can be navigated and what information is shown.

Overall, it's really great to be able to support GB by buying this app - I only hope it'll get better over time.

This is the most important Iphone application of all time; really a sign of the times, the moment when that Giant Bomb turned into the Mushroom Cloud of magic and wonderment!
And it's available without subscription. Perfect!

Where was the Geico one? "What's that? *points to Giant Bomb (the bomb/logo)*" "Oh, that? That's the app you could be using on your iPhone." *plays that song they play in the commercial (I've no idea what it's called)*
