Sling Media this week released a 3G enabled version of its SlingPlayer Mobile app for the Apple iPhone.

The software application is the mobile equivalent of the Sling Player software which lets users remotely control their Slingbox Solo, Pro or Pro-HD.

The SlingPlayer Mobile app was first released in May of last year but was limited because it would only support streaming over a Wi-Fi connection and would not work over a 3G connection. The Wifi only limitation has been put in place by wireless carriers who had competing mobile television viewing solutions.

Slingplayer Version 1.2 is available from the iTunes Canada app store and costs $30. The app will only work with the SlingBox Solo, Pro or Pro-HD and will not work with older Slingbox devices such as the Slingbox Classic, AV and Tuner.
