Clik lets users control any screen with a web browser using their smartphone. The new platform will let developers create apps for viewing videos, music, photos or games on different screens. They have released a free iPhone and Android app to show its potential, which can quickly push YouTube videos from your smartphone to your computer or smart TV so you can watch them on a bigger screen. The app also acts like a remote control, letting you pause, fast forward and adjust the volume.
To try it out for yourself, simply visit Clik’s website in any web browser and scan the QR code with the app on your smartphone to sync the screen. Then you’ll be able to select and search for YouTube videos from your phone and they will instantly start playing on the connected screen. Clik also lets multiple people scan the QR code for a single screen to control it, allowing groups of people to share content from different smartphones.
