Mobile App for Cloud Hybrid
Unlock the full potential of your mobile device! This App allows users of the Cloud Hybrid to access the digital content stored on their network drive through an iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad or Android based mobile device. Open the App and gain access to your music, videos and photo libraries.
Files can be uploaded from the mobile device to the network drive or stored directly on the network drive at the time the image or note is captured. Documents and media files that are stored on the network drive can be accessed and viewed on the mobile device.
Having access to the Cloud Hybrid from a mobile device means that the devices are no longer limited to their internal storage capacity. Cloud Hybrid turns a 16GB iPhone into a 1TB iPhone. It also means that users can enjoy music, photos and video files on the phone without having to actually store the files on the mobile device.
- Remote login works straight out of the box
- Upload manager to upload files to the remote network drive
- File browser to access files on the remote network drive
- Camera function to capture and instantly upload photos

Applications provide extra functionality for your mobile device to easily interact with the remote network drive at your home.
Take a picture and the photo will be stored on the network drive automatically.
Access your photo albums and saved photos on your mobile device, select any picture you like to upload, tap on it and it will store the picture on the network drive.
Record a voice message and the audio file will be stored on the network drive automatically.
Monitor the upload status of your files.
The file browser allows you to access the network drive and view the files by folder list, just like when the network drive is mounted on a computer.
Select a media file (e.g. JPG photo or MP4 video), tab on it and you can view it directly in your mobile device. You can go through your files manually or you can start a slideshow.
If you like to share a certain file with your friends, simply click on Share, fill out the e-mail address and an invitation will be sent to your friends. They can click on the link and log on to your media server to view the files.
The files are all stored on the hard drive of the network drive and will not take up any space on the mobile device. However, to view the files, an internet connection is required.
Configure the application according to your own preferences.
Set the quality for the captured images.
Set the interval time for the slideshow.
Define the path on the media server where the app stores the files. By default, the files are stored in their corresponding folders (e.g. images under photos), making it easy to find no matter if you use your mobile device, a web browser or a file browser on your computer.
Logout from your network drive and quit the app.
