Those features include the capability to view over 1,000 NFB documentaries, animated shorts and trailers, streamed over Wi-Fi and 3G wireless networks. Various films are available in 3D and HD. Users will also be able to download and store a film for up to 48 hours, for off-line viewing. As of June 1, the NFB iPhone app has been downloaded more than 235,000 times, with 821,000 film views.
