REQUIREMENTS: Compatible with iPhone and iPod touch.
Requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later.
Instructions and add-in can be found at www.whsmobile.com
WHS Mobile requires a server running Windows Home Server. Please install the add-in onto your Windows Home Server. WHS Mobile also requires that your Windows Home Server is up to date in order to have the .NET 3.5 update.
WHS Mobile is a utility that lets you manage your Windows Home Server files, port forwards, and users using your iPhone or iPod Touch.
Say you remembered that you needed an image that you had stored on your Windows Home Server while on your way to the office. Normally, this would be a problem. Now that you have WHS Mobile, you can just whip out your iPhone and download the file straight from your WHS. That is just one of the ways WHS Mobile can come in handy and save your butt. (Data plan not included.)
WHS Mobile can give you access to your shared files and manage them from your iPhone. You can delete and rename any file no matter the type.
Search your home server's shares using your iPhone. WHS Mobile interfaces with Windows Search to provide speedy results.
Stream your MP3's that are stored on your Windows Home Server directly to your phone.
View and download your photos that are on your Windows Home Server.
Upload photos from your device's photo library or directly from the camera.
Manage your user accounts from your device. Enable, disable, and delete users without the need to log-in from a computer.
Forgot to forward a port to your Home Server before you left? Just open up WHS Mobile and add it on the go.
Have multiple people who need access? Worried about security? No problem! Each Home Server user account can be given permission to connect using WHS Mobile. You can limit what they have access to do based on accounts. Each user only has permission to view/read/write based on what has been set on the Windows Home Server. You simply set up their account on the Home Server, and then they can log-in with their own user name and password. Log-in credentials are configured/changed using the devices settings app. After installing WHS Mobile, you will see a place to configure WHS Mobile in the settings app.
WHS Mobile is the only way to easily manage your Windows Home Server using your iPhone or iPod Touch.
Fixed: Spaces in user names with streaming. Had left some code out by mistake.
Fixed: Japanese/Chinese characters in files and folders making the folder/file not load properly.
Added: Uploading an image from your iPhone’s storage or camera will not ask for a file name anymore. Instead, the name is auto-generated from the date and time.
Added: Embedded icons for shares, folders, and most file types. Share and folder icons can be overridden with a “folder.jpg” file inside said folder/share.
Fixed: Handling of folders with mp3s if a folder.jpg file was not found as well (would show an error in the Event Log).
Added: Swipe to the right to show a “delete” button in the file tab. Tap to delete or swipe back to the left to hide.
Changed: XML to JSON in an attempt to speed up browsing.
Changed: Application badge (number) not clearing as it should. Made the app clear the badge on start. Was originally supposed to do that when the notification was cleared on the WHS.
Changed: Thumbnails are resized keeping the aspect ratio (again)
Changed: Optimized memory usage and fixed some leaks.
Changed: Made some other tweaks as when I changed from XML to JSON.
