iPhone/Android App News: Clik streams YouTube to new screen

App will send YouTube videos to any web-enabled display or TV set

Clik is a new second screen app which turns your smartphone into a YouTube remote which can sent videos to any web-connected screen.

A new application for Android and iOS devices allows you to use your smartphone as a remote control in order to stream YouTube videos to any web-enabled display.

The free Clik app is being billed as one to be used during "YouTube parties" to show viral videos and songs off to friends without having to gather around the same 3.5-inch screen.

The app is very easy to set up. Once you've downloaded and installed Clik, you'll need to visit Clikthis.com on your browser. From there, you use the app to scan the QR code, which will then connect to your display over Wi-Fi and 3G.

The app itself is essentially a skin for YouTube and once you've selected the preferred clip, you can control the video, (play, pause, volume etc) the app.

If there's more than one of you itching to screen your favourite clips, upto five people can log-in at the same time and control what's sent to the display.

iPhone and iPad owners with Apple TV set-top boxes will be used to this functionality thanks to AirPlay, but the Clik app doesn't require any additional hardware and can be used anywhere, provided the second screen is connected to the internet.
