What's New in Version 1.0.3
Updated for iOS 6 and iPhone 5
Improved support for iTunes purchased music
Works great and it's free!
I put this on my iPhone 4S and my iPad Mini and had them both streaming music to my Sony Blu-Ray player in minutes. I haven't tried it yet, but it should work with my PS3 as well. Great job to the developers who did this. Here is what you have to do to get it to work. (1) Download the app (2) Start the app (3) Go to your DLNA enabled system (Blu-Ray, PS3, Xbox) and find where it has the options to search for a DLNA device (4) Have it search (5) Once it's registered navigate on the player (not iPad/iPhone) and search for the folder (should show the name of your device). (6) Click on the folder and play away! On my Sony Blu-Ray it shows up under the pictures too, so make sure your under the music function of your device. Download it!
Works well with major drawbacks
This app does everything intended. In terms of functionality it is flawless. Unfortunately I frequently have issues with connecting it to my xbox one, though I suspect it is due to my router. The main drawback affects people who have little space on their device. I foolishly bought the iphone 5s with only 16gb of storage. With a 7.6 gig music library, I have very little room left. This app appears extremely small at first, slightly over 1mb, but I recently checked my storage statistics, and the app had grown to over 250mb in under a month. I don't know how or why, but it is extremely frustrating. Fortunately, deleting and reinstalling the app shrunk back it down to 2.3mb. But doing this every month would become extremely annoying. So I am looking for another app, or an update that would fix this.
App needs to be open
This app works perfectly. From my Xbox One, using the media player app available on the store, I can access all my music. Not only my entire music library, but artists, albums, playlists and genres. Not only that, but I can listen to my podcasts! I would give this app a 5-star review but it has to be open on my iPad. Like, the app has to be running on the screen, so it's a drawback. On the upside, a full three-minute song can load in about 10 seconds up to the Xbox, so that's a plus. If the developers could find a way to make it so that I can access my entire library while the phone is a sleep and charging while the app is still running in the background, I would give it a five star review no questions asked.
