SlingPlayer Mobile for iPad walkthrough [video]

SlingPlayer Mobile for iPad is finally getting near to release. A short video walkthrough of the new app has been posted on Sling's official YouTube account. The video emphasises that the app is all about the quality of the video, due to Apples excellent H.264 streaming capabilities. The interface looks very similar to other recent versions of Sling Player Mobile.

Now here is the bad news, Sling Player Mobile for iPad will be a separate app, no universal binary love here. If you already have the iPhone version you will have to pay again for the iPad version. It will cost another $30, the same price as the current iPhone version.

Also, Sling point out that the iPad version will only work with Slingbox PRO-HD and Slingbox SOLO equipment. Legacy versions do not have the hardware capability to stream at the iPad’s higher resolution.

No word on when this is going to hit the app store; but you can sign up now, to be kept up to date on availability information.

Are you are looking forward to this app? Do you think it is fair that you will have to pay again for the iPad version? Let us know in the comments!

UPDATED: Twitter for iPhone, iPad updated -- now with push notifications!

Twitter for iPhone and iPad just got an update and the big news is -- push notifications. This has been a highly desired feature for a very long time. At the moment, push notifications for the official Twitter app are only available for @mentions and direct messages.

Interestingly, Twitter does not include push notifications in the release notes. So it was a pleasant surprise to see Twitter asking for permission to send push notifications when launching for the first time after the install. Was this intentional?

MarkdownMail for iPhone and iPad - app review

YouTube Link

MarkdownMail for iPhone and iPad allows you to write articles in the Markdown format. You'll then be able to export the markdown in an email or send beautifully formatted HTML emails from the app itself. For those who aren't familiar with what markdown is, let's cover that first. Markdown is a markup language created by John Gruber and Aaron Swartz. It's extremely easy to learn and extremely convenient and efficient for publishing online. Markdown will basically convert your content into valid and properly formed XHTML. You don't have to deal with HTML tags and code. Markdown will take care of that for you.

Read on for a quick walkthrough of MarkdownMail which is currently available for both iPhone and iPad.

Iconfactory teases Astronut for iPhone [video]

Astronut is a new iPhone game coming this holiday season from the Iconfactory, makers of Twitterrific, Ramp Champ, and other well-known iOS titles. Chock full of cosmic-scale, arcade-style action, Astronut promises 24 levels across 6 sectors, and full support for Apple's Game Center. And as with most things they put pixel and code to, it looks frakking awesome.

Iconfactory's Gedeon Maheux told TiPb:

"I firmly believe Astronut is our finest entertainment title to date. We’ve crafted the game play to be fun and addicting, while creating the beautiful graphics users love to see on the stunning retina display on iPhone and iPod touch. We can't wait to get it into player's hands."
