Sonos update brings wireless streaming to iOS!

I have been a big Sonos fan for years. If you are not familiar with the high-quality line of wireless music systems, please do yourself a favor this holiday season and either search our site (keyword "Sonos"), check my latest Play:3 review here, or simply go to their home page here. It is the single best wireless music system I have reviewed. Anyway, the point is to inform that a recent update to the iOS application experience now includes streaming from your iPad, iPod touch or iPhone.

Free streaming-video app Frequency now available for iPhone

I first posted about Frequency last March. It's a great, free, video-streaming app on par with the other leading apps that aggregate free video, such as Plizy and ShowYou. Think of these apps as Flipboard for video. At the time I wrote about Frequency, it was iPad only.

New YouTube app for iPad and iPhone 5; watching TV on your iPad

image

You may recall that when iOS 6 came out, it lacked two apps that had been part of iOS from the beginning: Google's Maps and YouTube. Google quickly came out with a YouTube iPhone app to replace the one that went missing, but it received a lot of criticism.

It's now a universal app optimized for the screen of the retina iPad as well as the 4-inch screen of the iPhone 5.
