Yesterday the SlingPlayer for the iPhone got approved for the Apple App Store. You only can use it via Wi-Fi and the app cost a whopping $30. Is it worth it? AppleInsider tries to answer this question with an in-depth review of the SlingPlayer Mobile for iPhone.
Quote from the review: "There's still some progress to be made; the Slingplayer Mobile remote needs to be fixed, as the Menu button can't remain stranded on its own page. The Menu button doesn't even always work consistently, making navigation of Apple TV painful and annoying. It would be particularly delicious if Sling could deliver a touch-based remote interface for Apple TV that didn't just pick up simple channel up and down swipes and left and right swipes that bring up favorites (neither of which apply to Apple TV), but instead enabled a smart overlay of finger controls that allowed users to simply point to the menu they wanted to enter, calculate the tedious hops needed to get there from the present menu location, and then send the appropriate up, down, and select signals back to the Apple TV."
