WHS Phone Update to 1.3.3 In Process
Paul Juenger from WHSPhone has been in contact to tell me that WHSPhone 1.3.3 is in the process of being released for Android and Windows Phone 7. Read on for details!
WHS Phone 1.3.3 is in the process of being released. The add-in is available for download here now, and the client-side application for Windows Phone 7 and Android have been released to their respective application marketplaces. Look for them to be downloadable immediately for Android and very soon for Windows Phone 7 assuming no issues with application approvals.
Here is how Paul describes his application:
WHS Phone is a phone application for Windows Home Server. Connect to your server and browse files, stream music, view photos, and much more.
WHS Phone for windows phone 7 let’s you stream music from your Windows Home Server directly to your phone using your wireless internet!
Capture photos with your phone and send them to your Home Server. You can also view your photos from your Home Server on your phone.
With WHS Phone you can view your server’s resources, manage users, view the status of your computers, and more.
Features in this release:
- Completely new UI. I think you’ll like it!
- Streamlined Photo browsing a little.
- Cleaned up the Audio Playback a little.
- Added Server Restart and Shutdown
- Added full search of shares (uses windows search) and it’s pretty damn slick.
- Added photo upload from the Gallery and/or SD card.
- Ability to download ANY file to your phone.
- Added the ability to add Users and Shares from the phone.
- Video Streaming. YAY!
I told you about the beta here.
In addition, Paul Tweeted the news that he has begun development on an iOS version for iPhones and iPads. That is great news! I look forward to trying this application on my iPad soon.
