Qualcomm’s Skifta rep stopped by TPN during the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas to talk a bit about its whole-home audio systems and its iOS launch.
The new iOS app allows users to stream media to AirPlay devices. This includes images, music and video regardless of where it is stored — phone, tablet, computer or NAS drive. You can even grab media from the cloud using something like Dropbox or SkyDrive. The app grabs the photos and then looks for a DLNA device to play the media to.
The Android app, which has been around for sometime now, functions in the same way. Both versions of the app are free to download and install.
The company is also creating an entire DLNA system for whole-home audio distribution. You can learn more about that, and the mobile apps, by watching the video below.
