TappIn Networks Launches on Google Android Platform

Consumers can now use Android devices to access their Home photos, videos, music, and documents without the hassles of uploading, or copying files to the cloud or anywhere else

SEATTLE, Wash, May 5, 2010 – TappIn Networks (www.tappin.com), the company that let's you surf your home computer, announced today the public availability of its Android application. Now, consumers with Android mobile devices have a powerful solution to have simple and safe access to home content from anywhere over 3G or Wifi. Today, all Android customers can use TappIn from their Android phone to have secure access to everything on their home network without having to purchase expensive and complex hardware, software, or cloud-based products. No more uploading or copying required, this means that you have access to all of your home photos, videos, music and files, from anywhere, anytime.

Select Android users have been using early versions of the TappIn Android app with the existing TappIn service and have been extremely happy. "Having safe and reliable access to my personal and business files that I keep on my home computer is critical for my hectic schedule." says Vicki Olin, mother of two and business owner, as well as an early TappIn subscriber.

TappIn: The Secure, Convenient Way to Access and Share Home Files
The TappIn Service which launched in March of 2010, works with any firewall with no changes whatsoever, setup is instant, and the service is free. The TappIn software installs quickly on a Windows PC or Apple Mac without any expensive or clumsy hardware. With TappIn, users don't need to move their home files or configure their home network or laptop. Using the new TappIn App on their Android phone, users have instant access to everything they need for work or pleasure.

And, unlike other cloud-based storage services, where users are limited to a certain amount of storage, TappIn is completely free for all content. With TappIn, people can access their content right from their home network, which means users don't have to worry about paying monthly fees to store content online or have to worry about exceeding storage limitations that never seem to be enough.

TappIn users enjoy the following benefits:

  • Get convenient FREE access from any web browser, Android Phone, iPhone, iPod touch or even iPad, anytime, anywhere.
  • Never worry about forgetting an important file or document at home.
  • E-mail home pictures or business documents that are at home right from your phone.
  • Access videos without having to dumb down the quality to meet a device's storage limit.
  • View and share high quality photos without having to waste time uploading or attaching them to Internet photo sharing sites.

"Android device adoption is on an accelerating growth curve now, and TappIn support for Android was never a question for us given the extensive commitment by Google, Verizon, T-Mobile, Motorola, HTC, and others." said Chris Hopen, TappIn Networks co-founder and CEO.
