Mac blogger and developer Erica Sadun is no stranger to these pages, having most recently created a handful of slick tools for extending the capabilities of Apple’s AirPlay technology. Now, it appears that all of her hard work will culminate in one package called Banana TV.
TUAW is reporting that Erica Sadun is floating a preview version of her new Banana TV app for the Mac. Based on her beta AirFlick software, Banana TV will allow any iPhone, iPod touch or iPad devices running iOS 4.2 or later to stream video to the Mac, essentially turning Apple’s AirPlay streaming capability around.
“While you probably have most of the same content on your computer that you have on your iDevice, it's a great way to show videos on a bigger screen when visiting a friend or family member; it also opens up AirPlay streaming from iOS devices your friends or colleagues have with them, even if you don't have an Apple TV (at the office, for example),” explains TUAW.
Banana TV is the culmination of Sadun’s earlier efforts, which include AirFlick, AirPDF and Bruce, a utility designed to serve content, weather, RSS feeds and even video files and photos from the Mac to your second-generation (black) Apple TV -- without ever needing to even open iTunes.
Sadun has been working to get Banana TV into the Mac App Store, but thus far there’s no indication of when the software might be available or what it will cost.
