Several readers have informed us that SlingPlayer Mobile 1.1 [App Store, $29.99] has appeared in the App Store. As we profiled last week, the update adds several new features, including support for 16x9 widescreen video and remote control integration with DISH Network.

What's New in this Version

- Improved remote control interface

Unfortunately, SlingPlayer Mobile still only allows streaming over Wi-Fi, maintaining a limitation imposed on the initial version at the request of AT&T, which feared that allowing such uses on its 3G network would lead to congestion and service disruptions.
