Just Released: Airfoil for Mac 3.5.2 and Airfoil for Windows 2.7.7

Airfoil for Mac IconAirfoil for Windows IconWe’ve just posted updates to both Airfoil for Mac and Airfoil for Windows. These are small updates, but both feature important bug fixes. They’re free updates, so grab them now.

We’ve also submitted Airfoil Speakers Touch 1.1 to Apple, for posting on the App Store. Dan wrote about this last week, and we’ve now completed our initial update. This version works in the background on iOS 4, which means you won’t lose your audio because you switched applications – hooray!

Our dislike for the App Store is well known, and we don’t have plans for further iOS apps at this time. However, we know thousands of users love Airfoil Speakers Touch, and we’re planning to continue updating it. We’ve even got plans for some new features, coming soon.

So, grab the latest Airfoil for Mac and/or Airfoil for Windows, watch for Airfoil Speakers Touch 1.1 (coming soon), and keep your eyes out for future news on Airfoil as well.

    Yaaay! Thanks guys, you’re doing an incredible job with the Airfoil-suite. Couldn’t live without it…


  2. Eytan says:

    I understand your dislike for the App Store, but a well built audio recording app that works with external mics of some kind or a line in of some kind and records to the built in memory would be an excellent product. If there is anyone who could pull it off it would be you guys.

    So with Airfoil Speakers Touch 1.1, how will you actually quit the app? I like the idea of being able to stream audio in the background, but I want to make sure it doesn’t suck up battery if I actually want to exit the app rather than put it in the background.

    Nigel: That’s a general iOS4 question. You need to check out Apple Knowledgebase article HT4211 http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4211 on how to multitask on iOS4


  5. Nigel says:

    Thanks for the link. I’m aware of how to remove apps from the recently used tray in order to force them to quit. I suppose I was hoping that I wouldn’t need to do that, and that there would be an easy way to switch out of Airfoil while ensuring that it stops consuming resources.


  6. Moz says:

    Cheers to you and your hard work. I would pay for a remote to control airfoil in my house, which speaker to play through controlling the volume. I think you need to be compensated for your hardwork, we will pay for great products.


  7. Adam says:

    How about looking more at the Android platform to continue to work on mobile platforms? There’s a lot that could be done there!

    Keep up the great work!

    Downloaded the trial and i am hugely impressed but the sounds lag when played through VLC and didn’t transmit when played through the airfoil app. I will buy it if I get help with these issues.

    Have you considered creating a Sonos alternative?
    Using a dedicated computer, airport express and airfoil.

    The thing I like about the sonos is the ability to control all musical content via iphone.

    Ziggy: Glad you’re enjoying Airfoil – stay tuned for more updates.

    Eytan: Perhaps, but it’s not something we’re planning on. Sorry!

    Nigel: As noted, that’s the way to quit. There’s not really anything else we can do – the OS controls it.

    Moz: We’ll see what happens.

    Adam: Android is interesting, but it’s not a place we have any experience. I’m hopeful we’ll eventually have an Airfoil Speakers client for the platform, but we’ll see what happens.

    johan: You’ll want to visit this page. For further assistance, contact us directly via Support.

    Stewart Ayers: Sonos makes a fine, albeit expensive product. We don’t intend to compete directly with that, but we’ll see what happens in the future.
