AirMusic is a unique music app that lets you stream music on your iPhone to popular gaming consoles. Some readers may already use Apple's Airplay feature that streams music to your Apple TV. But with AirMusic, you can stream music to your XBox 360, PS3, or a PC running Vista or Windows 7.
To get started, you'll need to be on a shared Wi-Fi network with the console or computer to which you're going to stream. Then, you simply turn on Air Tunes via a slider within the app and navigate to your music folder on your chosen device. In our tests, the app worked beautifully, but we experienced some skipping on the XBox 360. Fortunately there is a fix: if you turn off High-Quality streams in the settings, the music plays normally (with little difference in quality).
We should note that AirMusic has a couple of less-than-ideal features including the inability to play songs from iTunes that have Apple's former DRM attached. But all of the newer DRM-free iTunes songs will work. The app also requires that you relaunch every 10 minutes when listening to music in the background while multi-tasking, but the developer points out that this requirement is imposed by Apple.
Overall, if you want an easy way to play your iPhone music over your entertainment system, AirTunes offers a painless way to do it.

Even better that it will now stream my Apple Lossless music too. My only complaint is that they didn't make the app a year or so earlier." -Dan Stock HOW TO USE Connect your iPod, iPhone or iPad to the same local network as your Xbox, PS3 or PC. Start AirMusic. If you have an Xbox, turn it on, navigate to the System Music Player and select your device in the list. If you have a PS3, turn it on, navigate to the Music Menu and select your device in the list. If it shows nothing underneath, it probably means you selected the Movie or Photo menu instead. If you have a PC running Windows Vista or later, start Windows Media Player, your iPhone Music will show under 'Other Libraries'. If you're experiencing skipping, turn off High-Quality streams in Settings. IMPORTANT AirMusic is compatible with iCloud as long as songs have been downloaded & synced with your phone. Tap the little cloud icon next to each song or album in the Music app to download them locally first before launching AirMusic. AirMusic requires an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch with a minimum of 50MB of disk space to work effectively. On a PC, AirMusic only works with Windows Media Player running on Windows Vista or Windows 7. AirMusic is not compatible with old DRM songs purchased on iTunes. Newer iTunes DRM free purchases are compatible.If you are experiencing any other issues, please visit our site at http://airmusic.plutinosoft.com or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
