Admit it, you’re not necessarily a fan of all Apple’s products. Some are life changers for sure – you’ll have to pry my iPhone out of my cold, dead hands. Others are maybe more, ‘meh’. iTunes falls into that latter category for a lot of people. While it was groundbreaking back in the day, these days it is more of an unkempt warehouse for Apple to cram things into. So how do you maintain your love for your Apple TV, while hating iTunes and not using it?
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.
