Polkast Enables Tablet Users to Quickly Access All Files on Their Computers From Anywhere

Allowing Mobile Users to Create Their Own 'Direct Cloud' With Their PCs, Polkast Offers an Innovative Solution for Searching, Sending and Viewing Files on a Tablet, iPad, or Smart Phone

CAPO BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 11, 2011) - Polkast, a revolutionary service that allows consumers to access and work on their digital content from anywhere at any time, today announced its official launch. Users can access files stored on their home or office PC directly on a tablet or smart phone instantly, easily and securely. Because Polkast allows devices to communicate directly over a local network, you can create your own 'Direct Cloud' with instantaneous downloads without the need for expensive syncing software or uploading to an online storage site.

"Everyone is talking about cloud services, but a cloud service can rain on your digital parade because they're not always secure, speedy, or available. Instead of sending you up to the cloud we are bringing the cloud to you, allowing you to create your own 'Direct Cloud' dynamically and directly between your mobile devices with your PCs," said Hong Bui, founder and CEO of Polkast. "There's no need for a round trip to the cloud when your devices are next to each other. Polkast is the 'blue sky' for tablet and smart phone users who want control and a faster, safer solution for accessing all their content, from across the room or across the globe."

Polkast is built from the ground up to give tablet and mobile devices the simplest, fastest, and most reliable way to access all your content on demand. There's no need to waste time uploading, syncing or waiting for files to download. Fetch a 1GB video file in few minutes rather than an hour. Files are cached, so you can enjoy a movie or keep working on your tablet when you're offline. Users also don't have to worry about paying for a limited amount of online storage or pre-planning what files to upload to where. And, since files are stored on your computer in your own network environment, users can have the peace of mind knowing all are securely under your control. Communication and data transferred between your devices are authenticated and encrypted, and none of your files are kept in some online Internet storage site.

When mobile devices are on the same Wi-Fi network, Polkast communicates with them directly. Searching, transferring, sending and viewing all files on your PCs from your mobile devices has never been easier, faster, or safer.

Using Polkast is as easy as downloading the free app and logging in. It is available for Windows 7, iOS-based devices and Android-based devices. For users who are tired of the old routine of uploading, syncing and waiting, storage limitation and cost, Polkast offers the premier solution. For more information and to download the app visit
