    Thanks, Sam. Looks interesting. While I do not have an a/v cable for my iPad, I grabbed this while it's free for possible use later.

    I don't have the AV cable, but I do have an AppleTV. Thanks for the heads up, Sam!

    I can't find this on Android but have it for iPad. It just says to connect the TV or audio unit to the iPad. How?

    You either need an AppleTV or a special cable. The Android version is not available yet, it is coming later this year.

    Just a correction to the title of this thread. There is no app for the Android. It won't be released until the Spring.

    No problem, Sam. If you see that app being introduced for Android come back and let us know.
