Just saw this smart app, where you can browse your phone from your PC/Mac without cables.

It's called MobCable and you can download it from here, and it's free.



Im not responsible for the program, i just found it and thought it was great.

Info from the Android Market page:

Quote:

Access your files from everywhere
MobCable is a simple and powerful tool, designed to let you access the content from your phone's storage, from everywhere.
* View content from your phone, using a web browser.
* Works even without a Wi-Fi connection.
* Download, upload files or delete files on your phone.
* Download zip files, with multiple files.
* Supports file transfers, without Wi-Fi connection.
* Auto detects if your phone is available, using local Wi-Fi connection.
*View thumbnails, before downloading files.
Install the app, open www.mobcable.com in a browser on a computer and enter the connection code, displayed on your phone.
The MobCable website auto detects if a direct link can be created between your phone and browser, using Wi-Fi. If not, it will use your phone's Internet connection and the mobcable.com website as a proxy.
For security reasons, the connection code can only be used from one computers IP-address. Connection code and
content on MobCable.com are removed, when the phone's last communication with MobCable.com exceeds 15 minutes.
The MobCable app uses your phone's Internet connection, make sure you are connected to a Wi-Fi network or have a flat rate or high traffic subscription, before using MobCable.com
Tested on HTC Legend, HTC Desire, Samsung Galaxy S, Samsung Galaxy S2
# Updates in version 1.2
Support for local Wi-Fi connection
Auto detecting local Wi-Fi connection
Support for downloading Zip Files
Thumbnails, in Internet mode, is now on demand
Thumbnail size changed to 100x100 pixels

Thanks for the nice find!

Very disappointed with this app because:

1. The code is changed every time you use it, so you cant save the code.
2. Everytime the phone is rotated, the code automatically changed, making it disconnect.
3. Its not a simple file manager, just shows all files in one list, takes the P1$$

1) It's much more secure to generate a random code every time. I am sure you can see why this is...

2) I experienced this as well, not sure why, but you can obviously avoid this by just keeping the phone in one position .

3) What were you expecting? It's something that is online on a web page, it can't really be a full featured file manager.

Nice!! I've always used File Expert it's only 1.7MB and with it you can share files across FTP, enable web sharing, but I mainly use it to access my shared network files on my Windows PC and as a general file explorer. It's regularly updated too!

Well, the developer has been in touch with me, he has put out an update that fixes the rotating problem. He has also said he will work on adding support for re-using the same code, and will put a treeview on the file manager
