Well, i follow some random people on Twitter and also some big names too, i like to follow technology and social media Twitter accounts and I get some great idea’s from reading peoples tweets. But i recently followed @Clik.
I got a Direct Message (DM) from Clik the other day to try their iPhone app, i thought “why not give it a crack!”, so i downloaded the CLIK app (which is free) from iTunes and installed it on my phone.
I ran the app and was instantly amazed.
So, you run the app on your phone and follow the very simple instructions, you dont have to sign up for anything, just run it, then on a device which has a browser, visit www.clikthis.com (NOTE: This site has now been decommissioned). The browser will then produce a QR code on the screen, hold up your phone which is running Clik, point it at the browser and it scans the QR code in automatically. Now, look back at your iPhone again and now there is a list of video’s you can browse, select a video or search for a video to play but instead of watching it on your phone, it will play in the browser… now i think this is pretty sweet… i am totally amazed!!!
Clik describes themselves as “a brand new Smart TV platform that lets you turn any screen with a browser into your screen by simply scanning it with your smartphone” as per their twitter bio.
All in all, i must say, this is one of my favourite iPhone apps at the moment…
I also tried bringing up the browser on a D-Link Boxee Box and once again, this app just magically works, HD Video’s on the big screen! NICE!
So if you haven’t tried CLIK, give it a go and download it to your iPhone or Android today!
Head on over to http://discover.clikthis.com/ (NOTE: This site has now been decommissioned) and check it out… by the way, I also love their site… Nice jobs CLIK!
