Boxee branching out into mobile apps
A new job listing from Boxee has confirmed plans to enter into mobile apps. The startup is hoping to begin work with a Lead iPhone and iPad App Developer that would bring the company's media front end to Apple's handhelds. It also dropped a hint that an Android version is next, as the new hire's experience with Google's mobile OS would be "a plus."
Differences between the mobile version and the large-screen versions didn't show up in the posting, but it would likely handle much of the same media sharing. This could include streaming media from computers on the local network as well as accessing Internet-specific features while away from home.
