Boxee for iPad Arrives, Brings AirPlay-like Functionality in Tandem with the Boxee Box

The iPad app all Boxee owners have been waiting for has arrived. Boxee for iPad is an app that is able to aggregate all the video your friends post on Buzz, Facebook, Tumblr, and Twitter, as well as videos you’ve bookmarked online to watch later using Boxee’s Bookmarklet. In addition, the app can be used in conjunction with Boxee on your Mac or PC (download: Boxee Media Manager) to stream music, photos, and video (transcoded on-the-fly) from your library of content to your iPad. The app even offers the ability to beam video from your iPad to your TV via the Boxee Box. All in all, not a bad offering. I just wonder why Boxee didn’t combine Boxee Remote functionality with this app as well?
