What's New in Version 1.4
Fixed Add connection dialog in iOS 7
After reading reviews of previous versions, I was skeptical ... but given that most everyone praised the support and this app provided most every feature I was looking for, I decided to give it a chance. I'm very glad I did. While the app was downloading to my iPad, I was downloading and installing the windows app for my Windows 7 Media Center.
Upon completion of the download, install and setup of the windows side, I grabbed my iPad and started the app. Lo and Behold .... all of my media was available and streaming seamlessly over my home WiFi system. No fuss, no mess. I was completely stoked at it's ease of install and setup, explorer style navigation and excellent streaming capability.
I have a single night of using this software and may very well run into glitches and bugs as I continue to use it ... but considering that they have the streaming protocol running so well, I'm not too worried about what I might ultimately uncover.
I will be testing it's effectiveness over the internet over the next week or so and hope to add to my impressions as available.
Four stars for now and hopefully increased to 5 as I have more time at the wheel.
Could be better...
So, Air Media was my go-to for ages. A constant issue has always been slow loading, frequent buffering, and issues streaming to Apple TV. It worked great when it worked, but the slow loading (of even the library itself, not just the media itself) got frustrating. I chalked it up to less than par connection or slow phone, until I downloaded Plex. Plex blows this app out of the water, and now I only use air media for the few things I don't have organized right for Plex. If the connection was faster and Air Media downloaded the metadata like Plex, then it would be great! Until then.... It's just so-so.
Can't say enough good things about this product. Paired with PC app and WMC on my Win7 laptop (with a USB HDTV adapter) I can watch any recorded TV program. Start recording any live TV program on laptop and you can immediately watch on iPad!! Immediately recognizes all other desktops on my wi-if network and can view/play most media. Terrific media player!
