Pretty solid app.
Okay, so my girlfriend and I are both in our mid-twenties, and just getting our careers started after college. Paying for cable simply is not in our budget, but luckily, since her parents own two homes, they have a slingbox system. That allows them to pay for cable in one of their houses, and use another slingbox at the other. It also allows us to use the sling player app so we too can enjoy their cable, without paying for it! While the app has its few minor issues, the fact that I can watch my sports and we can both enjoy cable shows like The Walking Dead at our place is just awesome. Love this app!!
Still has critical audio Airplay bug - fix it!!
What’s the point of implementing the Airplay feature, when Sling can’t properly implement it?
Specifically, when attempting to Airplay the audio portion to Airplay compatible devices, the current version of Slingplayer for iPad tries to also send the video feed, which it shouldn't do. Previous versions of the app didn't contain this bug.
Once SlingMedia engineers fix this bug (which is MONTHS overdue), then I will give this app 4 stars again. And if they bring back the “HD mode” for instant HD quality streaming, versus waiting minutes for “Auto mode” to bring up HD quality streaming on my iPads, I will certainly give the app 5 stars again.
LOVE this app!
Because we have a Slingbox and this app, we can watch tv anywhere in the house on the iPad (using our wireless network), even though the tv and satellite receiver are in the den. Better yet, when we are in a campground staying in our RV, we need only the iPad and WIFI...and we are set to watch TV as if we are home. (We are FoxNews junkies and hate to be out of touch with what is going on.). I highly recommend the Slingbox and the Slingbox app!
