Today’s iOS devices are direct descendants of Apple’s original iPod line, and the iPhone is perhaps the most popular iPod ever. iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad are all great for playing back music and videos. The only problem is, many of us store much more audio on our Macs and PCs than could fit on a standard iPhone or iPod Touch. Then, streaming audio from Flash-powered sites won’t play back on iOS, no matter how much storage you have. Apple has tried to make a solution with their AirPort Express, but most of us don’t want to pay $99 for a new device just to stream music around your house.
But isn’t your iPhone an internet-connected smart device with a speaker? Seems like you could use it to stream audio from your PC, doesn’t it? There’s no way to do it by default, but thanks to the new WiFi2HiFi app, you can use your iPhone for yet another crazy thing: streaming audio! Paired with a set of speakers or a HiFi dock, you’ve got a full wireless speaker system with just a $0.99 app. Keep reading to see how WiFi2HiFi works and if it’s the app you need to free audio from your computer!
