[prMac.com] Rio de Janeiro, Brazil - Silicon Studios today is pleased to announce iDownload 2.2 for iOS, an update to their Productivity app that allows users to quickly and easily download and share any file from any website. From office documents and PDF files, to music and movies, the app supports numerous file formats. Once downloaded, users have the ability to view files or share them via Bluetooth, WiFi, USB, or email. The update brings AirPlay support on iOS 4.3, enables users to download files directly from Mobile Safari and Mail and includes "Open in" support. iDownload was the first app of its kind to reach the App Store in 2008, and has been in the Top Ten of Productivity Apps in several countries around the world.
New in iDownload 2.2 is tighter integration with native iOS Apple apps. Mail will allow the transfer of attachments to iDownload using the "Open in..." option. The "Open in..." capability also allows the downloading of binary files directly from Mobile Safari, and the free and easy exchange of any files or documents between iDownload and other apps. Also included in the update is AirPlay compatibility, which will give users the ability to wirelessly stream videos, music, and photos downloaded with iDownload from any iOS device to Apple TV (second generation). In addition, the new technology introduced in iOS 4.3 will allow streaming of "iDownloaded" music to AirPlay speakers or receivers, including AirPort Express.
