Streaming app is not a new topic now. But it is still a hot item many developers dedicated to, such as this one, released by Digiarty Software, named Air Playit. Actually I have encounters a few apps on iTunes App store that can stream video and audio files from PC/Mac to iPhone, iPad. But most of them only have a lite version, that does not really do any work.
While after trying out Air Playit, I found it is a promising free video streaming software for me to remote control on the media files, let me watch them on my iPhone over both local network and Internet. It stream video to iPhone, iPad without conversion beforehand. Other like the famous one — Air Video, it can also download the files on portable devices over the air and catche all played audios as well. That’s amazing.
According to the report from Digiarty, it ranked top 50 under the Entertainment category in the App Store, even several days after its first release. And it keep updating. That’s why I like it. This make this free app stand out among any other video streaming software.
