Default Airplay and Apple TV

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://gigaom.com/apple/you-wanted-apps-on-your-apple-tv-apple-delivers-with-airplay-mirroring/' target='_blank'>http://gigaom.com/apple/you-wanted-...play-mirroring/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Since the second-generation Apple TV was released back in September of last year, people have wondered if and when apps would arrive on the device. After all, it runs on iOS software, so the underpinnings of app support are already present. But Apple hasn't opened up the Apple TV to third-party developers; or at least it hadn't before it unveiled iOS 5 on Monday."</em></p><p><img height="201" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1307927387.usr105634.jpg" width="600" /></p><p>Well you can't exactly get support for apps to run natively on the Apple TV, but the author found with AirPlay Mirroring that it was almost as good. You could do this with the Digital AV Adapter with iPad original and 2nd version, but with the wireless option it makes it an even better option. All you have to do is select your Apple TV as your output source in the multitasking menu bar and it works as designed. Anything you do on your iPad 2 from this point on will be reflected on your display connected to the Apple TV. Pretty slick.&nbsp;</p>
