Webout Streams HTML5 Video to Apple TV via AirPlay

Webout is a web browser application for iPhone and iPad that can stream HTML5 to your Apple TV using AirPlay.

Ever wanted to display a website on a TV, projector or monitor from your iPad or iPhone? Or wished Safari could show you the article you're reading without ads and other annoying page elements? webout lets you do that with minimal settings to configure and ease-of-use in mind. Plug in your VGA adapter any time to activate the screen mirroring, tap on the action button to choose a way to get your web 'out', or rotate the device to see in landscape.

What's New In This Version:
- Stream HTML5 video to Apple TV with AirPlay. Safari will only stream audio via AirPlay, but webout can stream video as well in this update. For most videos, just tap play on the video within the page, then activate the stream via the action menu. It's a little spotty on the iPhone since a lot of websites deliver video to your device not inline for the smaller display, but it works great on the iPad. Requires 4.2, a device that supports multitasking and the latest OS version on your Apple TV.
- Fixed a bug where webout incorrectly disallowed sending a page to safari
- Made the button tap areas slightly larger for big, American thumbs
- New icons (for a while...)

You can purchase webout from the App Store for $0.99.
