Word on the street is that the much-anticipated Slingplayer.app will be hitting the App Store…any…minute…now.  This follows numerous setbacks and reported rejections.   The app will cost a hefty $29.99 and will unofficially work with all Slingplayers.  This contradicts Sling’s own website which said it would only work for newer models.

Additionally, the app will only work over Wifi, which eliminates much of the utility of having a Slingbox in your pocket.  Sling had originally said that their app would work over Wifi, 3G and even EDGE.  No doubt, AT&T and other carriers had a hand in this decision.

We’ll post the app link when it becomes available, for those of you with $30 burning a hole in your pocket.
