If you’ve read our reviews on previous versions of Infuse, you’d know how much we love this video player. And if you’ve used it before, you’d also know why. Sporting one of the best user interfaces in the game, chewing up all formats one could think of and stuffed up with premium features, it’s been our favourite even from the 1.x times. Then Infuse 2.0 showed up and revolutionized things by dropping it free, giving an iOS 7 based flat design and including the much awaited “streaming” feature.
Apple TV sure has alot of apps/channels but unfortunately a web-browser isn’t one of them. And with good reason too. Ever tried to use the browsers in so called Smart-TVs? Well I have and can assure that using the remote as a pointer for surfing is annoying and is “injurious” to your forearm. Well, now thanks to AirWeb, anyone having an AirPlay Mirroring-enabled iOS device will be able to browse smoothly on their 40-incher.
X-Mirage is an amazing piece of software that mirror whatever’s on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch screen – apps, games, photos, videos, presentations, websites and more – to the bigger Mac screen in full HD. In addition to the basic mirroring capability, X-Mirage supports simultaneous display of multiple devices, turning any game into an exciting multiplayer tournament. The one-click recording helps to capture all the content on the screen, perfect for showing off your apps, slideshows and gameplays.
FireCore, the maker of aTV Flash (black) and Seas0nPass, has just released Infuse 2, a significantly updated version of its popular video player app for iPhone and iPad. Infuse 2 lets you watch videos in as many as 14 formats on your iOS device and is optimized for iOS 7 and Retina displays, with AirPlay and subtitle support as well as trakt.tv integration baked right in.
Apple has created the awesome platform of AirPlay to get your iOS device displays into Apple TV‘s large screen. But the major drawback has always been the lack of AirReceiving enabled devices. There are some great apps, like AirServer or Reflector, that mirror iPhone and iPad screens to your Mac, and now there is a new app called X-Mirage that does the same job, but promises to take AirPlay to the next level.
