Interface redesigned for finger navigation
Sling Media has introduced an update to its Sling Player Mobile utility for smartphones running Windows Mobile. Version 2.0 brings a revamped interface, with design elements that are geared for navigation with fingers rather than a stylus. While the iPhone app is limited to streaming content over Wi-Fi, the Windows Mobile version enables users to view television across either Wi-Fi or 3G connections.
The utility allows users to view streaming video sent from a Slingbox Solo, Pro-HD, or Pro. Content choices include any of the live channels, or even DVR content that has been previously recorded. Users can also schedule DVR recordings for the future.
Sling Player Mobile requires a Slingbox and a touchscreen-equipped smartphone running Windows Mobile 6.0 or higher. New customers can purchase the app for $30, while upgrades from v1.6 are available for free. [via jkOnTheRun]
