    I want to play audio coming from my phone, on my mac...

    Can I do this via bluetooth/airplay? I have a special podcast app that has features that mac software just doesn't have. Also, I have pandora skip hack, and I can't do that on computer...


    Thanks.

    There might be an app out there that can make your Mac an Airplay host.

    I would just get the remote app and use it...

    If you're going to play music on your computer I'm assuming your listening through your computer.

    Just use Pandora on your computer.

    pretty simple.

    I believe the key to his request is they want to be able to use their Skip hack.

    Expensive has always been subjective. It's not like there's a universal cutoff. :rolleyes:

    Airfoil.

    Start the "Airfoil speakers" app on your Mac and it becomes a "AirPlay speaker".
    Then play sound from your iDevice to it.

    Costs 25$ but at least you can test it first :)

    I know how to play audio from my computer on my iPhone...


    I just want to use my phone's audio on my computer (I know it is possible on a windows computer, but IDK about a mac)...

    I am no longer jailbroken, I just want to continue using the podcast application that I am beta testing.

    Then try Erica Saden's AirPlayer app. http://ericasadun.com/ftp/AirPlay/

    Couldn't make it to the 8th result on a Google search for "airplay to mac"?

    I did a search, maybe I just suck at google?

    Is that software safe?

    I was getting a blank (useless) box when attempting to use the freeware.

    Download xbmc 11.0. It's free and streams music and video through AirPlay. I use it daily, only drawback is there it takes about ten seconds for music to start playing. Video plays instantly.
