With this new GoFlexAccess app, you can now share and stream your music, photos and videos wirelessly from your phone to your GoFlex home network server easily. Available free on iPhone and Android phones.
Seagate has introduced the GoFlexAccess mobile device app for its GoFlex Home network storage system. Now available for download from the iTunes Store and Android Market, this easy-to-use application can be found by searching for "Seagate" or "GoFlex" in either store front using your computer or the app store on your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch or Android-compatible mobile devices. The new GoFlexAccess app delivers a fast and easy way to retrieve photos, movies, music and documents from anywhere while on-the-go with network access.
The iPad, iPhone and Android smartphone users can now have access to enjoy and share terabytes of media which are stored on the home network.

The benefits to having this network access include:-
- All of the shares on GoFlex Home, as well as all of the content stored elsewhere on the drive are now available from mobile devices;
- Create slideshows from photos in shares and play music at the same time;
- Stream video to mobile devices over 3G/4G and WiFi:
- Access Excel, PowerPoint, Word documents and PDFs etc;
- The app features content type filters, to simplify access to your content that may contain a large number of files and file types;
- Album art support for music files.
Available in 1TB, 2TB and 3TB capacities, the GoFlex Home storage system provides a storage central that is easily access and allows continuously back up wirelessly from both Windows and Mac OS X operating systems on the home network.
The GoFlex Home network storage system can be purchased on Seagate.com and select retailers for a suggested retail price of S$219 for 1TB, S$319 for 2TB or S$379 for 3TB. Firmware updates and the new GoFlexAccessapp are free for all GoFlex Home owners.
