SlingPlayer Plans for iPad Version

"SlingPlayer marketing manager Dave Eyler today confirmed that his company is working on a version of SlingPlayer for the iPad. The app should be a visible upgrade from the iPhone version as it will carry higher-resolution streaming from a TV-attached Slingbox. Any other changes weren't mentioned, but Eyler told ZNF that the finished version wouldn't be ready for the Saturday iPad launch."

They are also working on an Android version, moving to the H.264 format. According to the article, it will require newer Slingboxes such as the Solo or Pro-HD. They are also working on a Windows Phone 7 version using Silverlight as the wrapper. I'm hoping that Netflix will come up with something in the near future.

Slingplayer Rejected... Or not... Who knows...

"Some feared it might happen, others thought it would pass with flying colors, but unfortunately we've got a tip that tries to shed some light on the situation. This was from an anonymous tipster and we're posting it for information sake."

Boy Genius Report did later come back and update us that Sling hadn't actually heard anything about being rejected from Apple. It'll be interesting to see if the Slingplayer does actually make it into the App Store. I had a sneaking suspicion it wouldn't for exactly these reasons. I guess we'll see. One thing's for sure, though; it's taking a lot longer than the 7 days Apple was bragging about at their iPhone 3.0 reveal, which leads me to believe that this approval isn't going to be particularly easy.
