Quick App Update: SlingPlayer Mobile 1.1 for iPhone - Still Wi-Fi Only


SlingPlayer Mobile [$29.99 - iTunes Store] brings a few news features to everyone's favorite video transporter:

  • 16x9 widescreen for SOLO, PRO, and PRO-HD users
  • Remote access integration for DISH users
  • Faster start time and channel changes
  • Improved remote control UI

Thanks to AT&T's targeted terms of service, however, which specifically forbids SlingPlayer over 3G, you're still constrained to Wi-Fi (as is everyone on every other network outside AT&T, though Sling has apparently submitted a 3G version for App Stores outside the US -- no word on it from Apple yet, however).

If you give the update a go, let us know how it works for you.

[Thanks Robert for the tip!]

Still works great over 3G with Tricker ThreeG. New remote functions make things run a lot smoother.
