If you happen to be a music lover (Like Me!) then living away from your playlists and music collections becomes a bit of an arduous thing. iDevices provide users to manage their music effectively plus catchy things like Cover Flow and Genius force us to keep our music collections on either our iPads, iPhone’s or the elusive iPod Touch.
So today I will be introducing to you a very innovative kind of an application that will allow you to listen to your favorite music on your iOS device. AirPhones is basically a cross platform application that allows users to stream audio directly from their computer to an iDevice that is iPhone or iPod Touch. All you need to have is to create a server on Mac, Linux or Windows, a wireless network and AirPhones mobile app installed on your iDevice.
How to Get Started with AirPhones?
First of all you have to launch AirPhones on your PC to initiate the server sequence, you can place AirPhones icon either on your desktop or system tray. You can also auto launch or quick launch AirPhones app from system tray, in this way you will be aware of the fact that whether server is running or not. The icon turns automatically blue when it is functional and grey when its offline.
Once you are sure that server is up and running, then launch the AirPhones iOS app. The app is available in both the paid and Lite versions. Now when the app is through on a WiFi network a prompt will be generated automatically on your PC that AirPhones iOS app is trying to connect to your PC, Click OK and the procedure will continue.
Doing this will automatically start streaming the audio contents on your PC to the corresponding iDevice that is iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
The application works perfectly fine on all the Windows versions (XP, Vista and Windows 7) and Linux or Mac. You can download both the desktop version and iOS app of AirPhones from their official website.
