QNAP Released Official QMobile Application for Android 1.5, 1.6, and 2.1 Platforms
Taipei, Taiwan, October 2010 - QNAP Systems, Inc., a leading manufacturer of world class NAS (Network Attached Storage) servers revealed today the official QMobile application for Android 1.5, 1.6, and 2.1 platforms following the successful release of the app for iPhone users. The QMobile app, when used in conjunction with a QNAP Turbo NAS server and the V3.3.2 management software, allows users to stream music, digital pictures, and videos from their home NAS server and play directly on the Android handsets from anywhere, using Wi-Fi or 3G networks. This reduces the need to have the files synchronized and stored physically on the device while providing a simple and convenient way for mobile consumers to access their home content from anywhere.
QMobile's cool My Jukebox feature lets users remotely browse and select playlists created on the NAS to suit their mood by song title, artist, album, even ID3 tags. The QMobile app lets Android users upload pictures to a QNAP Turbo NAS and showcase pictures stored on the NAS on the mobile device. No more wishing you had added additional songs, videos, or pictures before a trip, so long as you have Internet access, you can play it remotely; it's like having a media center in your pocket!
QMobile can remotely select and play terabytes of compatible multimedia files stored on a QNAP NAS. Multimedia files can be easily selected to be copied to an Android phone using the QMobile app and the selected files will be placed in "My Favorites". This allows users to play and watch the content offline when they are disconnected from Internet access. The QMobile app will also inform users should any changes are made to their favorite files on the QNAP NAS and let them select whether or not to synchronize the changes to their Android devices.
"QMobile is a user-friendly media player application for iPhone and Android users to play and watch their music, pictures, and videos stored on QNAP NAS on the move. By streaming to the NAS, they can enjoy all their multimedia contents and there is no worry about the storage space limit of their mobile devices," said Johnny Chen, Product Manager of QNAP.
The NAS management software (required to use QMobile) can be downloaded from the QNAP website at http://www.qnap.com/.
