I’ve been on the lookout for a decent free app that will allow access to my music and video collection at home, with minimum fuss. Air Playit HD is just that app. It’s stable, fully featured and supports streaming not just over Wi-Fi, but crucially over 3G and 4G networks also.
The setup is simple, requiring a small server program to be installed on a PC at home, and once you tweak a few settings in the app you’re away! In this article, I’ll review the features, but also give you a brief how-to to get you up and running quick as a flash. (more…)
Having to deal with multiple computers at work and home could be painstaking. You will have to have a bunch of important files in a portable drive or an online backup service like Dropbox to carry all your data.
