New Cydia Hack Enables AirPlay Across Apps

When Apple released iOS 4.2, one of the most anticipated features was AirPlay. For those running the latest iOS, AirPlay is essentially a method of streaming digital media from your device (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch) to another device such as the 2010 AppleTV or AirPlay-enabled speakers.

Once in action, AirPlay is really awesome, as users can watch movies and photos on their widescreen TV’s and play music through speakers in the home (if applicable). At this time, AirPlay is only enabled in a few apps such as YouTube, Photos or videos synced to the device from iTunes.

Well, if your iDevice happens to be jailbroken (only tethered right now), a developer named Zone-MR has created a hack which enables AirPlay in all iOS applications, including Safari! Aside from the flexibility of use factor, this also means that Apple could easily enable AirPlay across all apps in future versions of iOS.
