Polkast lets you access your whole computer and storage drive, directly from your phone or tablet. Show vacation photos to a friend over lunch. Play the perfect song for that perfect date. No more pre-planning. No more cloud! You can literally access all of the files on your computer or storage drive, from wherever you are.
* No More Storage Fees!
Keep files saved on your computer or storage device where they belong, and instantly access everything from your Android phone or tablet. You won’t need to use a cloud with all those expensive fees and storage limits.
* Keep it Private!
Polkast creates a secure tunnel between your device and the original file, much like Skype or FaceTime. No one can see or access any of your files, except you. Ever.
