Priced at $5.99, the Polkast app is available for download in the NETGEAR genie®+ Marketplace.
NETGEAR ReadyNAS owners can now enjoy all of the content stored on their storage device from their iPad, iPhone, Android or Kindle Fire, in an easy-to-use interface that includes features for editing and sharing.
