NAS storage solutions company, QNAP, announced today a new app called QMobile, which will allow Android device users the ability to access photos, music, and videos that are stored on QNAP NAS Storage Devices. Users will be able to stream content directly to their devices over the internet, essentially giving them a media player in their pocket. The better news is that QMobile will support Android 1.5, 1.6, and 2.1 but no word on if 2.2 will be supported of if it works. The QNAP Server appliance will also need to be running the latest V3.3.0 management software to enable QMobile support.
“We are pleased to announce QMobile application as the first multimedia app for the connection between NAS and Android devices. For now, both iPhone and Android users can have fun with their mobile device and QNAP NAS,” said James Wu, Product Manager of QNAP Systems, Inc. “Users no longer need to be concerned about synchronizing the multimedia contents to the mobile device. They can save storage space of the mobile device and get a compelling user experience with QMobile,”
I am curious how well it works so if any of you have access to a QNAP server please give us your insight.
