Skifta Android streaming app launches with 3G functionality

Qualcomm has announced the launch of Skifta 1.0, a new Android streaming app which enables Android users to stream their media to any DLNA connected devices worldwide.

Pocket-lint covered the beta launch of Skifta back in February, and it's nice to see the final app come around within the year.

Skifta is the first DLNA Certified application capable of streaming personal media to any DLNA-certified gadget, which includes TVs, IP-connected stereos like Sonos systems, PlayStation 3 game consoles and Windows 7 PCs.

Playing media over 3G and Wi-Fi is also no problem, and to make it even easier Skifta comes with support for 3G video, allowing you to play anything from your home media library when out and about.

Working for Mac, Windows and Linux operating systems Skifta has the unique feature of a Channel library, which means you won't have to mess around managing multiple apps if you want to grab media from the cloud. 

Skifta gives you access to web-favourites such as Facebook Photos, Picasa, Flickr, Photobucket, Soma.fm, Napster, ShoutCast, Revision 3 and TED Talks.

Qualcomm analysts estimate that there will be nearly 2 billion DLNA Certified devices in homes worldwide by 2014 - so this is a growing area, of which Skifta is one of the early players.

It's available to download now from the Android Market.
