What's New in Version 3.8.41
- Bug fixes
Impeccable rien a dire
Audio only is back!
AirPlay always results in a squished aspect ratio, regardless of settings. Looks fine on the phone, but if you are planning on using AirPlay a lot, don't bother.
Mirroring does work, but the quality is poor and it drains your battery quickly as you must keep the screen on.
For the price, this should not be something that remains unfixed for so long.
It works. I'm using it to avoid the ads that sling now inserts into the web based player on computers...
