Xform Computing Announces World’s First Dual-Screen Streaming Cloud Desktop for iPad and iPhone, Using Apple TV
Now in beta, Xform’s latest AlwaysOnPC app update can display it’s full Cloud Desktop in HD format via the Apple TV ‘Dual-Screen’ Airplay Display
SANTA BARBARA, Calif., April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ – Xform Computing, leader in open-source based cloud-streaming apps for mobile devices, announces its Dual-Screen technology is included in the latest update of the AlwaysOnPC App in the iTunes App Store.
The AlwaysOnPC app delivers a cloud-based desktop computer to mobile devices. This latest Dual-Screen innovation lets mobile users extend their AlwaysOnPC experience beyond their device to a nearby HDTV screen using Apple TV’s Airplay Display feature. The iPad-to-Apple-TV connection is wireless, so no cables are required.
When Dual-Screen mode is activated, the AlwaysOnPC desktop apps are displayed on the large, clear HDTV screen. Users then have the entire screen of their iPad or iPhone as a touch-pad and keyboard, to control and use the AlwaysOnPC features.
“Our customers want the ability to view as well as share their content on the best display available,” said Kroum Antov, CEO of Xform Computing, “AlwaysOnPC Dual-Screen brings a new paradigm for mobile app interfaces and is a giant leap forward for Cloud Streaming Apps.”
For example iPad users with Apple TV at home can open and share content with their family and friends by projecting it onto the HDTV: They can share photos or video from sources such as Facebook, Dropbox, Vimeo, even Adobe Flash-based video among others using Firefox Browser with Flash support that is included in AlwaysOnPC.
The AlwaysOnPC with Dual-Screen also enhances business and productivity activities. With Apple TV and an iPhone, a user can open and edit office documents such as Microsoft Word, Excel or Powerpoint files, or display a meeting presentation, on a large HDTV screen.
Whenever AlwaysOnPC App detects a nearby Apple TV, instructions appear for activating it: Swipe up to reveal the iOS control panel; tap “AirPlay Display”, select “Apple TV” and turn ON the “Mirroring” switch. AlwaysOnPC will then switch to Dual-Screen mode. The feature will remain free during beta. Learn more athttp://alwaysonpc.com/mobile/AlwaysOnPC-HDTV-Dual-screen-display-Apple-TV
