Android phones are no slouches when it comes to connectivity, but sharing photos, music and videos from your phone with other devices can be a bit of a hassle. Usually you need to transfer your files via USB or physically take the memory card out of your phone and place it in the device you want to transfer the files to. Neither of these are a very high-tech solutions.

A better option is to kit your phone out with its own uPnP media server using TwonkyServer Mobile. The application scans your phone for photos, music and videos and then shares them out over Wi-Fi so you can access them via uPnP compatible devices such as DNLA-certified TVs, network media streamers and consoles like the PS3 and Xbox 360.

The instructions for the app are quite poor, but all you should have to do is make sure your phone and uPnP device are on the same Wi-Fi network, run the software on your phone and then search for the server on your uPnP device.


TwonkyServer Mobile is a great way to share your multimedia files with other devices on your Wi-Fi network.

I did not load this app because it wants access to things that should be none of its business. eg,Device and App History,Contacts and Caledar,Photo and media files, Wi fi connection info. If someone can explain why it needs this access I might reconsider.

What annoys me is this websites tactic of creating more hits by spreading out a short article over many pages to generate more hits- shameful. At the very least give the option to see all of the bits on a single page.

All apps want personal information, that's just the way it is these days. Marketing tools I guess and hopefully not snooping.
