    HomePipe lets you access your photos, videos, and documents stored on your home computer. HomePipe comes in a free and ad-free Paid(2.99) version. The great thing about this app is that it lets me stream my music library from my computer using my phone over 3G or wi-fi.

    Setup:

    The setup is quick and very straightforward. First thing you need to do is, go to https://www.homepipe.net/ and sign up for a free HomePipe account.

    Once you sign up, you will be required to activate your account. Once you activate your account, you will be asked to download and install HomePipe program(Based on your Operating system) on your computer.

    After installing the program on your computer, you can download and install the app from the market on to your device. Once you open the application, it will let you login or create a new account.

    Since we already created an account, you can log in and start using the app! Once you login you will see the following screen:

    You can see that my PC is listed there and now i can access all my files straight from my android device! You can give access to your music library by logging into your HomePipe account from your home browser and using "Sharing/Settings". Once access is given to your music folder, just launch the app, and your folder should be there ready to be used.

    Pros

    [*] Free, and easy to setup.

    [*] Works over both 3G and wi-fi.

    [*] I can now access my music files from anywhere. I can also access my documents, my pictures and other files from anywhere. A lot of people use this just for music, but you can access anything from anywhere.

    Cons

    [*] Over 40 second buffer between songs.

    [*] No option to create playlists. No album or song information.

    Verdict

    HomePipe is a great app to access all your files stored on your computer. I can't wait for the future updates for this app!

    Rating - 4/5!

    No problem! This app is great, and in my opinion a nice alternative to dropbox.
