Our Top 5 Home Entertainment Apps

Apps for home entertainmentGot an iPhone, iPad or Android phone? You’ll love these apps for music and video in your home.

  1. Remote – Apple’s app for controlling iTunes and Airplay
  2. Sonos Controller – Pure musical love for owners of Sonos gear (click here for the Android version)
  3. VLC Streamer – stream video to iPhone or iPad; copy video to your iDevice (view Android alternatives here)
  4. Boxee for iPad – Compile and view online video from your friends’ social sharing
  5. AV Player HD – plays any video format in HD on iPad

There are a few others that didn’t quite make the cut – the Denon Remote app (Android version) is great if you have one of the company’s ’11 or ’12 series receivers; Crestron Mobile G is great for home automation if you have Crestron in your home (an alternative Android app is here); and of course there’s plenty of internet radio apps out there too. Of these, our favourites are:

  1. TuneIn Radio – Over 50,000 stations including local AM / FM stations (Android version)
  2. Radio Paradise – A single station that has a great, varied mix better than any broadcast station we know -and no ads! (Android widget here)
  3. SomaFM – 20 channels of indy rock, pop, dance and downtempo beats broadcast from San Francisco (unofficial Android version here)
