On April 23, 2014, Apple released the Apple TV 6.1.1 (6698.99.19) software update. PlexConnect is still running on Apple TV 6.1.1 (Apple TV 2nd and 3rd generation). I tested it right now and I can confirm it for my Acer Aspire 1810T running on Windows 8.1 Pro and my MacBook Pro 13” (Mid 2012) running on Mavericks. There was no need to change anything in the set up of PlexConnect. Apple TV 6.1.1 includes general performance, stability and security improvements.

FileBrowser 5.1 release notes:
iBooks not syncing PDF files and ePub books not purchased in the iBooks store is a big problem for many people. In this tutorial I will show you to how iBooks is working and syncing on Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks and iOS 7 and how to fix the iBooks not syncing issue. iBooks for Mac was introduced with Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks and brings the existing features of iBooks on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to any Mac with OS X Mavericks installed. iBooks for Mac is comparable to iPhoto for Mac meaning iBooks for Mac is the syncing center for PDF files and ePub books not purchased in the iBooks store. iBooks and iBooks collections are synced via iCloud, but PDF files and ePub books are not!
PhotoSync 2.1 for iOS release includes support for Android devices (PhotoSync for Android), a redesign in iOS 7 flat design style and two interface themes in dark (black) and light (white). As observed on the new PhotoSync for Android website, in the PhotoSync 2.1 for iOS beta version and on the release notes of the PhotoSync Companion for Mac and for Windows updates, PhotoSync for Android 1.o is just released and now available in the Google Play store. The PhotoSync for Android support page is already online, too.
Touchbyte, the makers of PhotoSync, released today PhotoSync Companion 2.1 for Mac OS X and PhotoSync Companion 2.2.0 for Windows. The most important news are the upcoming releases of PhotoSync 2.1 for iOS and PhotoSync for Android 1.0 mentioned in the release notes. As already indicated in PhotoSync 2.1 for iOS beta and on the new PhotoSync homepage (still under construction) support of Android devices is obviously coming soon. In addition, the PhotoSync logo has now a new and flat design in iOS 7 look.
IFTTT for iPhone and iPad update (universal) adds iOS Notifications channel. iOS Notifications are short message alerts sent to your devices. You can view notifications in the Notification Center of your iPhone or iPad. The iOS Notifications Channel sends important notifications directly to your iOS devices. Furthermore, IFTTT enables you to connect the iOS Notifications Channel to 73 different Channels.
Plex is a media center software including a media server, and desktop (Mac OS X, Windows 7, 8 and 8.1) and mobile clients (iOS, Android, Windows Phone 8) and now is now also available on Chromecast. Plex organizes all of your personal media, wherever you keep it, so you can enjoy it on any devices. Plex is also running on Apple TV (2nd and 3rd) generation. However, you need to tweak the Apple TV with PlexConnect on Mac OS X or Windows 7, 8 and 8.1. This is not a simply doing, you need to install several apps, create and install a specific Apple TV profile. Especially, inexperencied user face problems to get PlexConnect running. Hence, there is an easier way to use Plex on Apple TV without PlexConnect or jailbreak via AirPlay mirroring using Plex for iOS.
AirParrot and Reflector App are versatile tools to use Apple’s AirPlay function to mirror screens. The well-known function of AirParrot for Mac or AirParrot for Windows mirrors the computer screen to Apple TV (2nd and 3rd generation). Using Reflector for Mac or Reflector for Windows PC turns your computer into an AirPlay receiver and enables AirPlay screen mirroring from iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to computers.
