AppleTV Screensharing/Remote App Adds Audio & Bluetooth Keyboard Support

April 19, 2016 in Utilities (E)

[] Roth, Germany - Today, IOSPIRIT GmbH is proud to announce the immediate availability of Remote Buddy Display 1.1 for Apple TV. Since its release, Remote Buddy Display has made a considerable splash in the media and in living rooms around the world. It has been widely received as one of the most innovative Apple TV apps to date, and highlights the potential of this little new box as a platform for apps beyond just games and on-demand video. The tvOS companion app for Remote Buddy allows users to see, hear & control their Mac from their Apple TV using the Siri Remote. Version 1.1 adds new and much-requested features:

* Audio Support joins High Performance Screen Sharing:
Version 1.1 adds the much-requested audio support, so that Apple TV users can now see and hear content they play back on their Mac. A new "Audio" menu inside the app also provides users with the ability to select a different system audio output - and to control volume.

* Support for Bluetooth Keyboards:
tvOS 9.2 added the ability to connect Bluetooth keyboards to the Apple TV - and Remote Buddy Display 1.1 is taking full advantage of that: any text typed on a connected keyboard during a session is now sent directly to the Mac - including most key combinations.

* Hiding the mouse cursor:
While the "Trackpad" and "Keyboard" modes of Remote Buddy Display rely on the mouse cursor as primary interaction model, the "Remote" mode is built on actions that directly control applications. Since a mouse cursor is not needed (and often unwanted) in that mode, Remote Buddy Display now hides it automatically when the mouse hasn't been moved for a few seconds.
