Boxee app headed to iPhone, iPad, Android

Boxee app headed to iPhone, iPad, Android According to Boxee CEO Avner Ronen, the company is working on an app for the iPhone,iPad and Android devices.
The iPad app is already in development while the Android app is so far, just a "coming soon." Boxee recently listed a job opening for "lead developer on software for Apple's mobile operating systems."

There is currently an iPhone app, but it serves as little more than a remote control for the desktop software. The new app would allow for users to stream video on their portable devices.

Speaking about the iPad, Ronen says (via LATimes): "It's perfect for video. You can start watching in bed. And then just take it with you."

The company is also looking to add more content providers, better social networking features and to introduce a centralized payment platform.

A recent study showed that 75 percent of all digital companies were actively looking for a strategy for video on the iPad, meaning the tablet may be a little more than a "fad."
