After months of development the more “mac like” Sling Player has emerged from beta, and is available to download in all its Universal Binary glory. Sling received a ton of constructive criticism from Mac users when the initial beta launched back in October since the application felt like a port of the Windows version. With the addition of an engineer who used to work at Apple, the new program is much more Mac friendly, even starting with the installation – which is just drag and drop.
According to Slings resident blogger in chief, Dave Zatz, this version sport more then a new UI. There are a TON of under-the-hood bug fixes and support for additional devices which include Apple TV and AT&T U-verse DVRs.
If you were a public beta tester the GM version, which will appear as a download later today on Slings website, will clean up all old beta.
