    [FREE] Polkast : Access your PC Anywhere from your Android Phone or Tablet







    If you're looking for a good alternative to Splashtop or any other remote PC app, then you might want to check out the new app Polkast.

    The service acts almost identical to MotoCast in that it takes minutes to setup on each of your computers and is then instantly accessible on your phone or tablet over WiFi or data. It defaults to pulling in your music, pictures, videos and documents folders from your computer, but adding in additional locations is super easy. It also has this “recent” section that recognizes a handful of your most recently added computer files, just in case you need to access one immediately.

    No more pre-planning what files to sync to the cloud. No storage limits. With Polkast, all of your files are available to you whenever you need them, no matter where you are – across the room or across the world.
    Because we let your devices communicate directly and securely over local networks, you get almost instantaneous downloads. Fetch a 1GB video in minutes not hours.


    Features

    • Search through thousands of computer files instantaneously while on the go.
    • Transfer files, photos, and videos directly between devices over the air.
    • Send files from your computer using your mobile phone or tablet as a remote control. Great for large home video files!
    • Post photos to Facebook, even if you don’t have them on your mobile.
    • View your docs and photos, play video from any of your devices, anywhere.
    • Save files back to your computer when you modify them on the mobile.
    • Secure your files through a protected password and SSL encryption–the same methods used by banks and the military. None of your files are kept in some online Internet storage site.














    If you want the fastest access to all files on your computers from your Android phone and tablet then grab Polkast today for free from the Android Market

    Very nice, thanks for the heads-up.

    I prefer Teamviewer for a (free) remote desktop application, however on my A2 I find this better than ZumoCast.

    Interesting program/service but ...
    Hmmm ... License agreement includes this section:
    10.2 You understand that Polkast, in performing the required technical steps to provide the Services to our users, may (a) transmit or distribute your Content over various public networks and in various media; and (b) make such changes to your Content as are necessary to conform and adapt that Content to the technical requirements of connecting networks, devices, services or media. You agree that this license shall permit Polkast to take these actions.
    Not sure I like that too much.

    Edit: see below

    Update: I am in correspondence with Polkast about this question and will advise.

    Further update:
    I am 100% satisfied with Polkast's security implementation.

    To clarify, at no time are any of your files/data in an unencrypted form anywhere but on devices you have explicitly allowed to access your files.
    The more I play with this, the more I like it. Clean and clear interface and it just flat works exactly the way they describe it.

    Why in the hell do you want to trust your data to the big cloud providers when you can just have your own private cloud?
    A big +1 from me.
