Works FLAWLESS!! Thanks alot for this app!

I still have 2 questions,

1) When im logged in to my PC using my galaxy tab, how can I copy files from the Toshiba hdd to the galaxy tab?

2) Im currently using Wifi, is it possible to use this over 3g?

Thanks and kind regards!

Hi Rich,

Thanks for using Splashtop.

1) Currently , Splashtop  doesn't support this function.  I will report your need to RD.

2) Splashtop android current version doesn't support connecting outside. You need do port forwarding .

But I don't suggest you doing this. It's really hard for common user to finish the network setup. I'd like to suggest you waiting for one or two month. The new function will be updated automatically.

Hi Sharonshan,

Thanks for your swift reply.
I'll wait for the updated version and maybe I;ll give that link a go and try for myself if I can find the time.
About the copying from PC to Android, that would be great!
I'll stay tuned and check frequently for news, thanks again.

The ability to transfer files from the PC to the Android device is very important to me as well. I was quite surprised to learn this wasn't possible yet. That means I have to use TeamViewer instead, when copying files. But I want to use just Splashtop because of the ability to transfer audio and video, which TeamViewer lacks.
