Using our custom Airfoil Speakers software in conjunction with Airfoil, you can already turn any computer into an AirPort Express audio receiver. You can then send audio from your Mac or PC to any other Mac, PC, or Linux computer on your local network, in addition to sending audio to AirPort Express and AppleTV hardware.
Today, we’re happy to welcome a new addition to the Airfoil Speakers family, with the immediate availability of Airfoil Speakers Touch. Using Airfoil Speakers Touch alongside Airfoil for Mac or Airfoil for Windows, you can now send audio from your computer to your iPhone or iPod Touch on the local network. It’s a mobile audio receiver, right in your pocket!
Of course, we’ve also got updates to both Airfoil for Mac (now at version 3.3) and Airfoil for Windows (now at version 2.7), to provide full compatibility with Airfoil Speakers Touch. Both of these are free updates for registered owners, and they both bring many minor bug fixes on top of Airfoil Speakers Touch support, so get them now!
Finally, for users of our unsupported, but still very cool, Airfoil Speakers for Linux, be sure to update to version 2.7. This update fixes several issues with crashes on Ubuntu.
So, those are our Airfoil updates. If you’re new to wireless home audio, you can download free trials of Airfoil for Mac and Airfoil for Windows, or visit the Airfoil page for more information. All users, new and old, should be sure to check out all our versions of Airfoil Speakers, including the brand-new Airfoil Speakers Touch, to send audio to computers and devices throughout your home!
Update: For those wondering about Airfoil for iPhone, or Airfoil Remote for iPhone, please see this post. The short version is that much as we’d like it, it’s not at all feasible at this time.
