AirBubble


AirBubble is a lightweight AirPlay audio receiver. It will appear in AirPlay applications (such as itunes) as a device you can play music to. It works in the background, streaming music to your Android device.

This version is fully featured but will exit 30 minutes after each app start (you can start the app as many times as you want). This can be unlocked with the AirBubble License app.


Features:

- stream audio from AirPlay clients (itunes, iOS, airfoil, ...)
- run in the background as a service
- configurable network name
- can be started on boot
- supports audio focus (mute or lower volume on external sounds)
- supports tethered USB or WiFi connection (may require rooted device in some case)

Limitations:

- Audio only, no video
- does not play in sync with other Airplay receivers
- does not work with RaopX on MacOS X and the raop module for pulseaudio on Linux
- does not work yet on GoogleTV

Examples of use:

- stream your itunes music to your Android device with Hyperfine Remote for iTunes
- wireless speaker or headset
- recycle older or broken Android devices as a dedicated networked speaker

Recent changes:
- fixed client connection failure on Android 4.4 (error -15000 in itunes)

Solid app, but has some problems on 2.3.6 Sound would chop after some hours of use and then eventually after all the reconnects one would have to go and restart app manually. Other than that - it turns old phone into AirPlay receiver, which is cool and useful, I like it!

Good idea, bad app First of all, it still has the Look and feel of android 2, and that sucks. I even paid the license. It used to work for at least 2 hours, and then drop, but now, it doesn't even connect with Itunes... It really sucks. I hate this kind of things, bad developers in the android world make the platform sucks.
