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.
doubleTwist has released a new tweak that adds AirPlay support for Google Play Music. A hack named AirPlay for Android makes use of the API in Android 4.1 which adds support for streaming devices. It is available right now on Google Play as an app, MagicPlay: AirPlay for Android for $2.99. Though publicized as a way to stream Google Play Music from Android to Apple TV, they’ve clarified that this hack will work with any music app that supports Google Chrome Casting.
AirServer, an AirPlay receiver that enables you to stream audio, videos, photos, and photo slideshows to your Mac, Windows PC or iOS device, has been just updated to version 4.4 that adds desktop mirroring support for Mountain Lion. The new version of AirServer also adds support for high resolution mirroring from iOS 6 and Mountain Lion, support for fast user switching and some optimizations for MacBook Pro Retina.
App Dynamic, the company that brought AirPlay to the 1st generation Apple TV, has just released Remote HD plugin 5.0 featuring an all new AirPlay upgrade. The 5.0 plugin breathes new life back into your old Apple TV with iOS 5 and iTunes DRM-encrypted video support. The update does not include mirroring or HTTP live streaming over AirPlay.
