PreCentral: Remote access your TouchPad files with Gemini File Manager

Recommended Posts

Gemini access remoteGemini File Manager, by Oma Studios, is a fully featured File Manager that allows you to access to your TouchPad's USB drive, giving you the ability to copy, move, delete and view all your files. It also offers a whole lot more than that, such as hooks into Dropbox and Box.net to access all your files in those services. But what you may not be aware of is that it also has a "Remote" feature that lets you browse all your files from any devices connected to the same Wi-Fi network that has a web browser, including other webOS phones or TouchPads. From there, you can download or view any file, all wirelessly, while still having full access to your TouchPad (unlike when plugging it in to your computer and accessing USB mode)

To access Remote mode, just open up Gemini, tap the "Remote" tab on the top of the screen, and then press the "Start Server" button (if desired, you can change the Port as well). Once you tap that button, a web address will be given to you that will allow you to access your files. Once you are done, simply tap the "End Service" button.

Note that there is no security options for accessing your files once you start the remote server. So, make sure that you are aware of who else may be on the same Wi-Fi network and who may know the IP address for your device.

Gemini File Manager is available in the webOS App Catalog for $2.99 and is compatible with all webOS devices running webOS 3.0 or higher.
