The Watch ABC set of apps have done a great job in upgrading ABC Network’s on-demand and live contents from the ancient website windows to our smartphones and tablets. And today, the Watch ABC iOS app was updated to support AirPlay, whereby you can directly play full screen videos on your Apple TV, instead of using the universal screen mirroring.
Torrents are a huge industry by itself, dealing with contents ranging through movies, songs, videos, ebooks and softwares. Leaving aside the fact that they occupy the legal grey zone, torrents are still one of the most loved ways to find media for millions. And now, a new app called TorrenTV aims to make things easier by streaming torrent videos directly to your Apple TV.
The doubleTwist Music Player has been quite popular on Android, thanks to its music streaming service Magic Radio, which boasts a huge library of songs (about 13 million). The app comes from DoubleTwist, the same guys who brought system wide AirPlay mirroring to all Android devices, via the MagicPlay: AirPlay for Android app. And the latest update to Magic Radio sees the latter feature getting melted into it.
iOS users have long been using AirPlay Mirroring to broadcast their photos, songs, movies and even dual screen games to the HDTV via Apple TV. But now, a new app called AirBrowser claims to bring web browsing to your 50 incher, which can be royally enjoyed from the couch using your iPhone or iPad. Though we have seen AirWeb, a similar browser, before, AirBrowser pushes the experience still further.
Netflix comes on top of my “Apple TV-uses” list but AirPlay mirroring is a close runner up. The flexibility it provides is unlimited as you can show off almost anything on your HDTV with just a tap – it can be movies, games, webpages, presentations and what not. Though this works great if you are an Apple-only guy, for a person with a Windows PC or an unsupported Mac, this feature is fairly out of reach and that is where this post comes in.
