Airfoil Speakers Touch streams PC audio to iPhone

Airfoil Speakers Touch

Rogue Amoeba on Friday launched Airfoil Speakers Touch, an application for the iPhone and iPod touch that streams audio from a computer to the mobile devices. The app works in conjunction with Airfoil software installed on a Mac or PC system and sends audio via Wi-Fi. Users can plug headphones into the iPhone or Touch and listen to the stream untethered from the computer, or connect the devices to a dock or speaker system to eliminate the need for dedicated wireless components.

Airfoil can also be used to send audio to AirPort Express units, Apple TVs, Macs, PCs or Linux boxes. The software keeps the audio synchronized across all of the devices receiving the audio stream.

Airfoil Speakers Touch is available from the App Store for free. Airfoil for Mac and Airfoil for Windows are each available directly from the company for $25. A trial version is available, with noise interruption over the audio stream after ten minutes of playback.

    iTunes only would be fine

    The need to run a special app on the PC kind of kills it for me. I would happily pay for a soft-speakers application if my iPhone would just appear within iTunes same as my Airport Express does.

    I'd really like an iPod touch app that could access my Shared iTunes library on my Mac via Wi-Fi. Is that possible?

    Airfoil Speakers Touch is awesome! Will try it as well. For streaming music I’m using WiFi2HiFi App: It streams audio from PC or Mac to stereo system or sound-dock in crystal-clear stereo quality, with an iOS device acting as a wireless receiver.
