Always running out of storage space on your iDevice and having a tough time deciding what to keep? FileExplorer could be the answer to your problem by allowing you to watch movies, listen to music, look over a document, watch slideshows of your photo library, and more without using precious storage space on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch.
How does the process work? FileExplorer connects to Dropbox, Google Drive, Google Docs, and CIFS/SMB protocol, otherwise known as Windows File Sharing, compatible devices to offer effortless file streaming and downloading. Meaning, you can access any movie, song, photo, or document stored on a NAS, Mac, Windows system, or Linux system as if it were on your iDevice, and even download files for offline access.
The built-in media players and viewers are compatible with the most popular music, video, and document formats, such as JPEG, MP3, H.264, and PDF. If you have an Apple TV and a newer printer, you can also stream videos through AirPlay and print documents via AirPrint.
In addition to the in-app viewing, files can be sent to another iOS app using the “open in” command, shared with friends and coworkers through email or Twitter, and even decompressed (unzipped).
FileExplorer is a universal app compatible with iPad, second generation iPad, third generation iPad, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, 32GB and 64GB third generation iPod touch, fourth generation iPod touch and newer running iOS 5.0 or later. FileExplorer offers both manual and automatic configuration of connections. Connecting when away from home may require port forwarding of TCP 139 and 445. See your wireless router manual for instructions.
