User reviews of SlingPlayer for Phones
Works brilliantly! I have it running on a Galaxy S2 and a Galaxy Tab. Although the picture is not quite as clear on the Tab, they both perform very well, and it is clever how the bitstream speed is constantly tweaked to try to ensure the picture never freezes. The better the connection, the better the picture. Surprised how well it performed on the T-Mobile network as well. Agreed, it is cheeky to charge £20 when you already bought the Slingbox, but if you have a smartphone or tablet, then you are missing out big time by not adding this app. By the way, it controls UK Sky+ really well, with pretty much every commend available, including record, pause, and full EPG access. NICE!

WASTE OF MONEY! This is a great app, only if your phone's internet connection is prestine -- which often times isn't. As a result, the video locks up and freezes often, which makes it frustrating to use. Have not been able to make it through an entire show without failure. Use your laptop/netbook free access to the Sling web player and save your money because this app does not work while traveling cross-country in ground transportation.

Absolutley perfect on my Desire and on my Fascinate 4G. That's all I can say. Perfect.

Awesome! I travel a lot and have 2 Slingbox Pro HDs at home, hooked up to 2 different Dish Network receivers. I use it to show off my phone when necessary. ;)

Great app, but it would be better if it supported App2SD, so it can be moved to SD card. Android 2.2 (Froyo) allows apps to be moved to SD card, for the apps that support it.

I use both Android and Apple versions. Android version seems clunky at first but I can delete many DVD recordings from the Android version faster because the Apple remote representation is cool but harder to use fast. Android version doesn't fill up the screen with the remote. Slingerbox user since 2006.
