Samsung bringing Airplay competitor SwipeIt to CES
Love or hate Apple products, the AirPlay feature is an excellent way of sharing your mobile content on your TV. In a not overly surprising move, Samsung are keen to get in on this and are set to show of their SwipeIt application at CES.
Operation is set to be as simple as Airplay. If you're watching something on your mobile device, hit a button and voila; it's on your TV.
The application started being pushed out by Samsung on New Year's Day to all their internet connected TVs. The mobile application was pushed out to the Android Market a couple of days later, albeit very low key. The listing is referenced to MOVL who built it for Samsung.
While Apple's alternative requires an all Apple lineup to utilise, SwipeIt will work with any Android device as our graphic below indicates. This is great news for anyone who owns a Samsung SmartTV but prefers a different brand of mobile device. Download links are after the break.
