iBox Media Streamer will stream any media file from your home or work computer directly to your Android device, without the need for a third party server or cloud syncing host. iBox Media Streaming does everything that iBox Remote File Access does too!
IMPORTANT: After installing, go to http://teliapp.com/ibox on your Windows PC to download the iBox Control Panel which is required to access your files from iBox.
iBox Remote File Access enables any Android device to connect wirelessly and directly to any Windows computer that is turned on, connected to the Internet and has the iBox Control Panel running. Instantly view and edit your files including your entire video or music library from all your Windows computers utilizing an aesthetically pleasing graphic user interface. iBox Remote File Access enables a direct connection to your computer – without a third party intermediary. No syncing issues – ever. No monthly storage fees for “additional space” – ever. The only limitation to hard drive space is the actual size of your computer or laptop's hard drive.
Currently iBox supports any computer using Windows. In future releases, iBox will also support Mac. In future releases, iBox will support online catastrophic storage/backup. iBox supports connection to one computer at a time. In future releases, iBox will support simultaneous connections to multiple computers. Currently, iBox supports media streaming and viewing and opening virtually any file on your computer and external or network hard drive, including but not limited to documents, charts, presentations, pictures and all video media.
Although cloud hosting continues to be on the rise, many people wish that they didn’t have to store their personal, private or business data on “someone else’s” server in order to access it. Syncing local data with cloud services also presents various logistical issues. When users change local data, cloud syncing doesn’t always happen instantly, causing duplication of efforts, confusion and sometimes even loss of data. Cloud service companies give away a limited amount of free space and then up-sell their customers to pay hefty monthly fees in order to use the hard drive space the customer truly needs.
