US-based storage vendor, Seagate, recently launched a mobile device app, GoFlexAccess, for its GoFlex Home network storage system.
The GoFlex Home network storage server is a storage drive with sharing and back-up facilities for use within a home network, which can be connected via remote access from a personal computer.
The new app allows iPad, iPhone and Android smartphone users with home network access to retrieve photos, movies, music and documents from anywhere, on-the-go.
With the mobile connectivity solution, Seagate aims to extend the products for consumption of media from personal mobile technology devices to the home network drive.
The solution includes six key features:
- Retrieval of content stored on GoFlex Home or elsewhere on the drive from mobile devices
- Excel, PowerPoint, Word documents and PDF access
- Mobile device video streaming over 3G/4G and Wi-Fi
- Slideshow creation using photos in shares and music simultaneously
- Content type filters on the app that simplify access to material that contain a large number of files and file types
- Album art support for music files
The storage system is offered in 1TB, 2TB and 3TB capacities, for both Windows and Mac OS X operating systems.
Users requiring more storage space can connect additional drives to the system’s USB port – which can also wirelessly share a USB printer with every computer on the network.
Prices for the range start from $169 and are available from Seagate’s online website and selected retailers.
Firmware updates and the new GoFlexAccess app are free for all GoFlex Home owners and can be downloaded from the iTunes Store and Android Market.
