CHAPEL HILL, N.C.--(www.splitmo.com), a newly-launched company dedicated to creating innovative mobile apps that leverage ‘dual screen’ technologies, today announced the launch of the company’s first app, called Air Show, which is available for free in the Apple App Store.)--Splitmo, (
“We love our mobile devices. They play games and keep us connected on the go. Unfortunately, their size can also be a weakness”
Air Show is an iOS app that lets users preview, select and edit images on their iPhone/iPad screen while simultaneously displaying the more polished view on an HDTV screen -- hence the ‘dual screen’ moniker. Unlike photo collage apps that can’t display content outside of the device, or slide-builder apps that require sitting down and building a presentation first, Air Show is about on-the-fly previewing and tweaking of images on the small screen of the iPhone or iPad while your audience enjoys the show on the big screen.
Air Show is dead simple to use, it’s visually gorgeous, and it’s fast. Air Show uses Apple TV’s AirPlay capabilities to let users extend the small screen to their HDTV wirelessly and with ease. The app lets users do basic crop, zoom, rotate and highlight with a laser pointer -- all literally in a couple of seconds as users are showing off images in real time for an audience. Air Show really shines for spontaneous on-the-fly sharing. An iPad 2/3 or iPhone 4S is required to use the AirPlay functionality with Apple TV, but users who don’t have Apple TV can also use Air Show by connecting their iPad/iPhone to an HDTV with an HDMI cable.
“We love our mobile devices. They play games and keep us connected on the go. Unfortunately, their size can also be a weakness,” said Rob Witman, Founder of Splitmo. “Why not use a mobile phone or tablet together with an HDTV to have the best of both worlds? Splitmo was founded to bring ‘split screen’ apps to mobile, apps that engage an audience via the TV while you control the shots from your device. That’s exactly what Air Show does.”
Air Show is FREE and available in the Apple App Store. There will be some add-on features and online storage for additional image playlists that will cost extra for heavy users, but the free version is great for most casual users.
Splitmo was founded in 2012 to create mobile apps that leverage dual screen technologies such as Apple TV. It’s first app to reach the market – called Air Show – lets consumers spontaneously share their iPhone/iPad gallery images on an HDTV screen while using the handheld as an on-the-fly preview and editing screen. Splitmo is focused on the Apple TV ecosystem and expanding the capabilities of the popular set-top-box with innovative mobile applications.
The company’s founders previously built popular feature phone apps for mobile carrier customers such as Verizon and AT&T.
