Last year, Julie reviewed the Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Home Network Storage System that allows all the computers on your home network to share a single disk for backups and data sharing. Sometimes you’d like to have access to your files even when you aren’t home, and Seagate has introduced an app for iOS and Android devices that connects you to your GoFlex Home disk from anywhere. With this connectivity, you can create and run photo slideshows with music on your mobile device, stream video to your mobile device connected through 3G/4G or WiFi, and access Excel, Word, and Powerpoint documents and PDF files. Filters simplify access to your disk contents, so you don’t have to wade through tons of files looking for the one you need. You can download the free app to your Android smartphone or tablet or iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad; just search for “Seagate” or “GoFlex” in the Android market or in the iTunes app store.
