Hurl

Hurl released an official Windows Phone app last week, but the team has got in touch with Windows Phone Central to confirm that an update has been published to address issue with screen resolutions. Taking into account the feedback that has been provided by the community, the Hurl team has set out to address concerns and any problems that were experienced.

If you're not familiar with Hurl, it's a DNLA-type service, but for PCs. The service works after the official app has been installed on a Windows Phone and page set up on the Hurl website (www.hurl.net). Using your phone’s GPS (and your label) you can then connect up. Users can search online for videos, which can then be added to the queue for playback on the PC. The Windows Phone acts as a remote—it’s like SmartGlass but for everything else.

Ever want to share a video from your phone onto a PC? Want to make the experience social and open platform too so your iPhone and Android friends can jump in? Then you’ll want to take a peep at the official Hurl app for Windows Phone 8, which came out yesterday.

Hurl is like a DNLA service but for PCs, but it also adds some social aspects as well. The system works by simply downloading their app to your phone and setting up a page on the Hurl website (www.hurl.net). Using your phone’s GPS (and your label) you can then connect up. From there, you can search online for videos, which you then add to the queue. Those videos will then play on the PC and your phone acts like a remote for it—it’s like SmartGlass but for everything else.
