Yesterday, PBS announced the release of the PBS App for iPhone and iPod touch, which features over 300 hours of free video, including full-length programming from FRONTLINE, Nature, Need to Know, and others.

The app also includes scheduling information, previews, and a new tune-in reminder calendar that can be synced with iCal.

The PBS Antiques Roadshow game app (available for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch) also launched yesterday, and lets players virtually collect, appraise, and bid on real antiques and collectibles from different cities added regularly.

The PBS App was developed by PBS and Bottle Rocket Apps and follows the already successful PBS App for iPad.

The app is available for free from the App Store on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, or at www.itunes.com/appstore, and the Antiques Roadshow App is available for $2.99 from the App Store on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, or at www.itunes.com/appstore.

Check out more details and features of the apps.

    IPod Touch – IOS 5.1.1… PBS app only delivers audio now… worked fine before Christmas and videos work fine via Safari… Too bad no one is paying attention
