TapMedia Publishing has released a new app that allows users of camera-equipped iOS devices to send live images to their Apple TV via AirPlay. Camera for Apple TV provides a live preview of the camera view and a button to send the output to an AirPlay device. Possibly due to limitations in iOS and AirPlay, the application is only able to display a series of static images on the Apple TV refreshed at a frame rate of approximately 5fps rather than a full-motion real-time video feed. Camera for Apple TV is available from the App Store for $2 and requires an iPhone, fourth-generation iPod touch or iPad 2 running iOS 4.3 or later and a second-generation Apple TV running Apple TV Software 4.2 or later.

Looks like they knew some nice press coverage and exposure was coming that they quickly moved it rom free to $1.99. Slick.

Thanks for the comments - I think!! The app was launched at $1.99 and has never been free not really sure where this came from.

It came from a typo smile 

Apologies for the confusion—the article has now been updated with the correct price.
