AirView Streams Video Between iOS Devices
Have you ever had a movie on your iPhone, but wanted to watch it on your iPad’s larger screen? Then AirView
is just what you’ve been waiting for. AirView is a free app that has just been approved for the App Store. It only does one thing, but what it does, it does well.
allows you to stream video from one iOS device to another, that’s it. By using Apple’s AirPlay
technology and a local Wi-Fi signal, you can stream video, for example, from an iPhone to an iPad or vise versa. There are no settings to fiddle with, or any preferences to set. Just launch the app and wait for the other device to start streaming video. AirView works like a receiver. Once activated, AirView simply plays a video file as soon as it’s received. It is compatible with the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad running iOS 4.2.
I’ve tested this app by streaming a movie from my iPhone 4 to an iPad and it worked flawlessly. I’m honestly surprised that Apple didn’t include this function when it originally released Airplay as part of the iOS 4.2 update. Hopefully, AirPlay’s streaming capabilities will be expanded with the next update and include AirView’s streaming capability. For now though, enjoy a little more freedom when streaming.
