Access and Stream Your Device’s Content with DroidXPlorer

There are several tools out there that let you access the content of your Android device from your PC, including some that let you access and control it through the web browser. At first glance, DroidXPlorer may seem to be just another one of them. It runs on your Android device and lets you browse and download files from your phone over WiFi from your PC or any other device, right inside the web browser, without the need to install any separate client on your PC. What makes DroidXPlorer different however, is the ability to directly stream media files in the web browser, without downloading them from your Android device first.

The interface is quite minimal, yet functional. You just have to launch the app on your Android device and activate it, and it will give you the link for accessing it in the web browser. The browser interface offers a nice thumbnail view and lets you browse the files by location or media type.

Developed by XDA Forum Member MetalDroid, DroidXPlorer is currently released, and is in active development. Right now, you can’t transfer files to the device or delete files, but it is on the developer’s to-do list. For more information and the download link, visit the forum thread.

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
