OnLive is soon releasing their iOS App. The app allows you to use the OnLive service on your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. Cloud-based gaming on your iOS device.

OnLive is basically a gaming service that allows users to play games on their device (whether it be computer, iOS device, etc) easily over the cloud. The game is being streamed to them and is using minimal processor power on their end. For instance, if I play a console game on my iPhone, it will work because my iPhone is simply streaming, it’s not doing the heavy graphical processing that OnLive’s servers are doing.

According to TechCrunch, who seems to have gotten the exclusive, the app is free while users will have to pay for the individual games. Makes sense. It should be interesting to play L.A. Noire on my iPhone.
