Access Your Mobile File System via LAN on WP8

Back on Windows Phone 7, XDA Recognized Developer fiinix released an interesting web server app that allowed users to browse their mobile file system through a LAN. Following up on this, Recognized Developer GoodDayToDie has created a similar application for Windows Phone 8, WP8 File Access Webserver.

As with its spiritual predecessor by fiinix, GoodDayToDie’s app enumerates files visible to the sandbox, and it also allows users to download them. Getting started is fairly simple. All you have to do is sideload the app, connect to LAN, run the application, and point the client web browser (on the same LAN) to the phone’s internal IP address. Once in the index page, enter your desired path into the text box and click Get Files to access the file list. After you have the file list, click any file to download it.

The app is still under heavy development, and as you would expect, there are a few quirks that users must deal with if they want to play with this as it’s being developed. For instance, there is currently no way to tell the difference between a file and a folder in the list view. Also, occasional errors and exceptions are to be expected while GoodDayToDie finishes adding polish. However, for those who can’t wait and wish to give this a try, there is no reason why not.

Want to know the best part? GoodDayToDie has made this fully open source, with the sources available in the thread OP. Head over to the original thread to get started.
