Cut The Audio Cables With WiFi2HiFi 2.0 For iOS
Celver & Son has announced the release of WiFi2HiFi 2.0 for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad. The universal app enables mobile devices to play audio from a Mac that is on the same network. Available for $0.99, WiFi2HiFi 2.0 uses “smart streaming technology” to replace audio cables. As a result, the iOS device becomes an external speaker. Better still, you can use the app on multiple devices at the same time. This means having speakers in multiple rooms. To use WiFi2HiFi, you must download and install the free Station application for Mac. From there, you simply need to start the iOS app on your device, which automatically finds the Mac on the network. With Apple's AirPlay, you can stream music from the Mac to the Apple TV. However, this isn't possible on iOS devices. According to Clever & Son’s Tobias Gemperli:Take a look: WiFi2HiFi 2.0 is available now in the App Store.
We grew tired of constantly synchronizing music libraries on our Macs and mobile iOS devices. This was when the idea for WiFi2HiFi was born.[caption id="attachment_463842" align="aligncenter" width="800"] WiFi2HiFi 2.0 On iPad[/caption] Full features include:
