Banana TV App Delivers iOS to Mac Video Streaming
One of the coolest offerings we've seen in a while is now available courtesy of developer Erica Sadun, who brings to us Banana TV from her beta AirFlick software. Thanks to Erica, we now have the awesome ability to reverse the AirPlay pathway and play video clips (or images) from your favorite iDevice (iPad, iPhone, iPod touch running iOS 4.2 of higher) right to your networked Mac. As it was succinctly summarized by MMi sometime ago during Erica's development of Banana TV, "your Mac is now a big Apple TV."
While you probably have most of the same content on your computer that you have on your iDevice, it's a great way to show videos on a bigger screen when visiting friends or family; it also opens up AirPlay streaming from iOS devices your friends or colleagues have with them, even without an Apple TV (at the office, for example).
To find out what's so "appealing" - pun intended - about Banana TV, or to try it out for yourself ($7.99), be sure to visit the official home of Banana TV by clicking here.

Cool. I don't have an Apple tv so the air play never interested me.

Personally can see no use for this. All my media is already on my macmini with hdmi connected tv. If a file is on my iphone or ipad it probably came from the macmini in the first place. If not it is not exactly difficult to transfer it there. Everything on the mini streams to macbook pro and iphone with PLEX.

That's pretty sweet! I showed my GF now she's wondering if there's such a thing for the Evo? Does anyone know if it exists?
