My first Android app is now available. This is a direct result of +Chromemote
efforts. Now some of the best features of Chromemote are available to any smart TV with a browser.
So many users demanded Chrome OS support. Unfortunately Google's APIs that Chromemote use are incompatible with Chrome OS. So on the path to build my own cloud based communication between devices, I developed +Flinger.co
At the beginning of the year we pitched +Chromemote
to Microsoft for the Imagine Cup Accelerator and they loved it. Few months later we were one of fifteen teams that Microsoft flew out to Silicon Valley for a week.
We spent quite a bit of time at the Microsoft SV offices. They really pushed me to develop something to a much larger audience. Also they wanted us to build something that supports Windows 8 and Azure. ;)
By the third day I was there the very beginnings of Flinger were spawned. Some totally awesome Microsoft engineers gave us the boost we needed to build something really awesome that many more can enjoy.
Flinger is a smart TV channel that you can start from just about any modern web browser. So on your TV or just using your desktop screens. You can then fling YouTube, Vimeo, and SlideShare content to that screen and remotely control it from any other screen.
We want to bring the remote app to as many platforms as possible. Initially we have rolled out the HTML5 remote for any browser and the Flinger.co Remote Chrome Extension.
I am very happy to now announce the release of the Flinger.co Remote for Android. Please share your feedback and let me know what you think.
