Very useful app
Just what I needed: I can keep my movies, music etc on a network storage device and access them wirelessly in streaming on my ipad. I love it! Price is more than justified.

Works great - can be steep learning curve
Most importantly, this was well worth the money. I can control my WD live hub via Twonky media server. I can stream video to my new iPad and iPod Touch from my media server as well. Now the bad.. If the last two lines completely confused you then this might not be for you + this app is a little confusing. If you're not tech savvy, this might prove challenging. That being said, if you don't mind investing some time the it might be worth it for you. Also you can forget about playing MKVs, with Flexplayer it is possible but 720p plays at 3 fps. AVI and M4V play great.

Works well with my media server
I'm not sure what all the negative reviews are about. The app works on my windows Homeserver. The three test files in each folder worked well. I think it should be clearer that you must pay for the full functioning version. But $4.99 is not much considering the functionality over my home network.

Works but that's about it
It works great, however the free edition only let's you play the first three songs before a verbal ad block is placed.

Horrible skipping, all resolutions
Everything I play via this app (plus their Flex app, which is required to play most formats) skips horribly, no matter whether I'm playing 720p or 240p video. I'd say I get an average of 0.1 seconds of moving video every second. My other devices all stream from my DLNA server just fine with no lag, so the problem is the app, not my network. Glad I didn't buy the full version -- if it actually played video smoothly I'd buy it in a second, but this is unwatchable. On the plus side, it did quickly detect all of the DLNA servers on my network. UPDATE: Even when I download the files to play locally from my iPad, I have the skipping problem. So I think this is a shortcoming of the decoder software, not the network component.
