Webrox, the developer behind apps like Spoticast and Tubecast, has released its latest project, called LAN Drive. The tool, available for Windows 10 Mobile, as well as Android and iOS, allows you to easily turn your phone into a network drive accessible by other computers and devices connected to your same network.
LAN Drive allows you to easily copy and share content between devices, with your phone acting as the middle-man. That can come in handy if you don't have a USB drive on hand, or just need a quick way to move files between devices. LAN Drive can also work remotely with other apps like VLC, Kodi and any SMB client. Here's an overview of LAN Drive's main features:
- Copy/paste/rename files and folders on your device with MAC OS Finder, Windows File Explorer, Android ES Explorer, etc.
- Access Videos, Photos, Music library in your device as network shared folders.
- View your multimedia files with embedded mediaplayer (or external app).
- Your device name appears automatically in MAC OS Finder, Windows File Explorer, Android ES Explorer, VLC, Kodi etc.
- Manage your device name (NetBios) and Workgroup name.
- 3 authentication types : Anonymous with popup confirmation, Anonymous and Users with custom rights
- Manage users and create your own shared folders with credentials.
- View users connected and disconnect them.
- Unlimited connections (several users can access your sharings at the same time)
- 5 languages : English, Spanish, French, German, Italian.
- Protocols SMB1 (CIFS) and SMB2 protocol (enable/disable via settings)
LAN Drive looks like an interesting tool to check out, and the backing of the same team behind Tubecast and Spoticast is a good sign. If you'd like to try it out for yourself, LAN Drive is available with a free trial and can be fully unlocked for $2.99.
