Android users tend to balk at apps that cost more than $5 or so, but in this case it might be worth shelling out, at least if you're a SlingBox owner. The mobile client for the popular media streaming gadget has been given a temporary price cut: a whole 50% off! ...which sounds a lot better than $14.99, half its normal price of $30. On top of that, there are separate versions of the app for smartphones and tablets.
You can tell Android’s definitely starting to gain momentum as more and more developers are now bringing their popular applications over to the platform. Slingbox have been working on an Android app for a while, and they’ve just posted a video preview over on their Facebook page.
If you’re not familiar with a Slingbox, it’s a device that integrates with your home media center, and allows you to stream and control content from your DVR, TV, or digital cable box to software that runs on a PC or mobile device.
