Orb CEO Joe Costello also claims that the OrbLive app and streaming service has dramatically improved the quality of streaming video so that it optimizes video for the user’s connection speed.

“As the As the connection moves up and down in quality, the video adjusts in real time to deliver the best picture and minimize the dreaded buffering so users always have access to their TV shows, movies and music,” Costello said.

The new version of OrbLive for the iPhone is available immediately. Android users will have to wait a short while to mid-August before the app will be available in the Android Market.
