Remember the Vscreens.com app from Sony Ericsson that let you stream content from your phone to any internet-connected display? Well, the folks behind Kik, the cross-platform messenger, have come up with something similar called Clik. This time instead of you sharing your own content, Clik lets you control YouTube on your display through your phone. Select what videos to play, search, browser, start, stop, and add them to your favorites.
The best part is, you don’t need to launch anything other than the web browser on the display and your smartphone to start Clik, no additional hardware needed. All the video streaming is also done with your TV/computer so you don’t need to worry about wasting your mobile data with the app. Multiple users can also share the same screen to play and discover videos together, for a fun and interactive experience.
Sounds like a great app to pull out at parties, just as long as the host has an internet-connected display available for you to use. Clik is available as a free download from the Android Market and Apple App Store.
