File Browser for Android App

File Browser for Android App

I really want the File Browser feature capability developed for the Android app. Wyse has it available in the iOS app. Does anyone else using the Android app need/want it as well?

Lots of times I don't need to be accessing my PC's desktop but rather wanting to get right to my PC's file system to move files/folders back and forth. I might want to upload files from my Evo 4G up to my PC or download PC files to my 4G. one might say, well just use ftp, but, i would like not having to setup all that ftp stuff, and....

it must be a feature popular enough because wyse did put it in the Apple iOS app. so why not in the Android app? any thoughts/ desires?

Hi Bill, 
We have exactly what you are looking for.
we do have a flash memory redirection feature in android. 
It will serve your requirement. 
you will be able to transfer files back and forth between device and remote desktop.
You will need pocketcloud pro for this. Please also turn on switch 'flash memory redirection' by editing your computer settings.

Thank you!

RE: File Browser for Android App

thanks for the quick reply. i don't seem to understand the flash memory redirection approach. could you walk me through it. it doesn't sound like the file browser feature implementation in the iOS app whiich looks and acts like its nav and usability simply extends the ipone/ipad's file system along side with a MAC, etc...

RE: File Browser for Android App

I can't seem to find the switch for pocket memory redirection on my Evo 4g. It only provided some use connectivity options. I am running pocketcloud pro.

On my pc when I did pocketcloud autodiscovery and ran the edp and vnc connectivity it indicated rdp to port 3389 failed and vnc to port 5900 is successful. Fyi I'm running Vista home basic. Explain how I do file browser on my android to my pc running Vista home basic. I really need the file transfer capability you said it could do.

RE: File Browser for Android App

File Browser for Android is coming soon.
Right now Android PocketCloud has a feature called Flash Memory Redirection. 
Steps:
In PocketCloud Computers List press and hold your PC label > Edit > Turn Flash memory Redirection switch ON > Save
Connect to this desktop > go to Start > My Computer > You should see PocketCloud Drive
When you click on it you will see all files you have on your Android device. Now you can just dragg and drop files from your desktop to your android device and back. NO DropBox needed 🙂

This is supported on RDP connections only

RE: File Browser for Android App

Is there any update when Android File Browser might be added? Navigating the remote computer's desktop to copy files within Windows to the Android flash through flash memory redirection is way more effort than just directly transferring files from a browser on Android. The file access was the main reason I bought the Pro version. Appears a convenient capability isn't quite there yet.
