10 best free apps for using AirPlay with an Apple TV

image

I have a second-generation Apple TV set-top box, and really enjoy using AirPlay to stream movies from my iPad to my 42-inch HDTV. It's fun how simple it is. If you have an iOS device and Apple TV on the same WiFi network, you simply start playing a video and tap a button that gives you the option of playing the movie on your TV instead of your iPad. If you need to go out and want to continue watching the movie, you simply toggle back to the iPad and continue watching.



Three great streaming video apps -- including free movies

I wrote an article about 20 streaming video apps in the Jan/Feb 2011 issue of our magazine, and have another article coming on in the May/June 2012 issue (on newsstands in mid-April) that covers about a dozen more, with a focus on video-aggregation apps such as Plizy. I've blogged about many of these apps, but wanted to highlight a few that I haven't yet covered here.
