Top 6 Android Music Apps for Apple AirPlay

iMediaShare

Lots of apps can stream via AirPlay, as we’ve seen, but some also include content from a range of media properties, built right in. Developer Bianor created an app that acts sort of like a remote control that’s also the cable box, so you can switch between between online channels, your Android’s music library and other media services — and stream any of it to AirPlay. IMediaShare‘s channel-surfing interface feels like the iPhone’s or Android’s graphical list of app icons with a nice selection (YouTube, The Onion, CNN, Animal Planet, etc.). All of this is playable on a long list of hardware, thanks to DLNA: game consoles (PlayStation3, XBox 360), televisions (Samsung, Sony, etc.), audio home electronics (Sonos, Onkyo, etc.), and, of course, any Airplay-enabled device. It’s a monstrous app.

    Want to stream spotify through airplay. How can I do it?

  • SB

    I have a Libratone Live speaker and I’ve tried many apps, the only app which can stream directly to sources other than appleTV seems to be Twonky. Here’s a video of it in action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H55Bd2ASGao

    you should really update this article, if not delete it alltogether. here’s why:
    1. taglist by eye-c just doesn’t work. it doesn’t see any airplay device, forget about it

    2. remote for itunes is not an airplay app. it doesn’t send music from android to airplay like you said in the article’s title. it is just a remote. it’s not even the best one; retune is much better and it’s free
    3. iMediashare doesn’t recognize the airport express

    4. Twonky music doesn’t exist anymore. Twonky mobile doesn’t stream to airplay. it does see the devices, but it never streams anything to them.

    5. Airbubble doesn’t stream to airplay, it receives from airplay.

    6. Honey is the only app that works – it does see airplay devices and does stream LOCAL content to them.
    Currently there is no app that can send streamed content (spotify, deezer, pandora, etc) to airplay. And that is the future as you well know it. Let’s see what miracast looks like though…
