Ubuntu One brings unofficial AirPlay to iPhone, Linux

Ubuntu One outs AirPlay-compatible app

The Ubuntu One cloud service has now brought out an Ubuntu One app for the iPhone (free, App Store) that lets users stream multimedia using Apple's Airplay technology. AirPlay lets iOS 4.2 device users stream music, video or photos to AirPlay-compatible hardware such as the Apple TV, AirPort Express or others. AirPlay support is becoming more common in hardware devices from third-party makers.

At the same time, Ubuntu-build Linux users don't need to play local files but can instead stream those they store on the Ubuntu One cloud. Many devices already have AirPlay support, but software support is mainly common and restricted to Apple's iTunes. [via OMGUbuntu]
