HP released update to their mediasmart iPhone/iPod app


Recommended Posts

Hp updated the mediasmart iPhone/iPod touch app.

I don't have a list of all the updates. I do see that you can now email photos from the iPhone. Also you can view music in coverflow. It did say that there were some other optimizations.

thanks nippyjun,

I'm happy to hear that this is out. I found the original a bit weak. I hope this one is better. I have been using AirVideo with positive results.

I have the EX490 and selected the iphone preset for my itouch conversion sequence for the istream app. I used the 480x320. The folders do show up on my itouch however the files do not. I'm not sure why.

I too can see my folders but not the files. This happened with the previous version but then it started working and i don't know what it did to get it to work. I'll have to play around with it.
