EyeTV iPhone App Allows For Streaming Over 3G Through Built-In Backdoor

The EyeTV iPhone app is supposed to allow you to stream media from a computer to an iPhone over a Wi-Fi connection, but it comes with a little bonus that must've slipped past Apple's approval process: streaming over 3G.

I don't even know if this can be called a "backdoor" with as easy as it is to bypass the "Wi-Fi only" warning on this app:

Tap the OK button, and the app will act as if it can't receive broadcasts. However, tap the text of the warning message instead, and the Eye TV app will stream live TV over a 3G connection.

Easypeasy, and you might as well snatch up the app before Apple or AT&T react. [ElectricPig via Boy Genius Report]
