  1. I picked this up for my Fire the other day when it was the free app of the day. Very nice!

    Speaking of which, App World should consider doing a free app of the day. What better way to encourage checking out App World every day than by giving folks a free app when they do!?!

    • I would second free app of the day. I would also recommend showing a random app per category in App World. Other than Newly Added and Recently changed, the featured tab doesn’t change much. There are a lot of apps, but its hard to get to them.

    • I think a free app of the day is a great idea and if not that, at least increase the size of the featured apps lists. There are a lot of excellent apps but I don’t often sit there and look through the categories and even on the website version, the filtering is pretty lame because there is no way to filter by OS6, OS7 or Playbook.

  2. wonder if anyone wil come up with a WHS connector app

  3. Just bought this app and my initial impression is that it is amazing, going to get a lot of use from me and a steal of a deal @ $4.99. I’m typing this post on my laptop with my playbook in my laptop, connected, and there is zero lag between what I type on my laptop and what is mirrored on my playbook and vice versa, the responsiveness of the app is excellent on the playbook end.

  4. Will this help me play email videos that now say not supported when I try to open them? WMV for example.

  5. Can someone tell me if this will allow you to play videogames on your computer? I want to be able to play civ 5 from the couch and think the playbook could help does anyone know?

  6. I set hooked this up with resolution 1280×720 i think and it gives me full screen, i then load up my xbmc with my wireless 30 controller and play movies (medium lag) and then load up my hyperspin and play n4,saturn,dreamcast,wii and so on including pc games like skyrim from my bedroom on playbook with the 30 controller ,this app IS good but the audio is scratchy and you get massive lag spikes.I have a very fast home network and i know it is not the playbook to fault but the software stream to fault ,if this can be tydy and some bugs fixed i would pay £30 for this but as it stands i am glad i got it for free.
