Skifta Android app lets users stream to devices

Qualcomm Atheros just announced the release of the Skifta 1.0 Android app (free, Android Market) that will allow users to stream content from their Android devices or saved on the cloud to any DLNA-compatible device. It will offer a Channel library, that will let users access content from their Picasa, Photobucket,, Napster, ShoutCast, Revision 3 and TED Talks accounts or service, among others, without launching those apps separately.

Its maker claims Skifta will not require content to be downloaded or sideloaded first. Ease-of-use is another claimed benefit, with all users having to do is select the content, an output device and playing it. It will have the ability to access the content over Wi-Fi or 3G. The app will work together with desktop media server plug-ins for Mac, Windows and Linux systems for accessing files on their home computers.

Skifta 1.0 requires Android 2.2 or newer.
