Sling Player Mobile gets updated, finger navigation comes as a welcome addition

January 26, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Version 2.0 of the Sling Player Mobile is out. Sling Media has brought to the mart the update to the utility aimed at smartphones running Windows Mobile. With arrival of the new update, what we get to experience is a fresh and brand new interface that promises to keep us hooked on to streaming content on our handsets.

Sling Media, while making effective this new update, has made it a point to make sure all design elements go user friendly and are built for navigation with fingers rather than a stylus. Further, the Windows Mobile version also lets users watch their favorite television program via Wi-Fi or a 3G connection. Talking of videos, Sling Media has thrown in a feature which would allow users view streaming video sent from a Slingbox Solo, Pro-HD, or Pro. So if you would prefer live channels, or pre-recorded DVR content, you will be able to watch them uninterrupted.

All you need to own if you are to have the Sling Player Mobile experience is a touchscreen smartphone that runs Windows Mobile 6.0 or a higher version of the phone. Sling Media also offers first timer the option of buying the app for $30. It would also offer upgrades from v1.6 free of cost. And if you are somebody who already owns a license of Sling Player Mobile 1.6, the upgrade would come for free. Or else, you may have to shell out $29.99 or download the free trial directly from the Sling site.
