SpotCha!: iPhone App Written Review
In today’s world, it feels like we have more electronic devices than actual conveniences. Even though the messy cables and docks are gone, we still manage to lose our files in the muck: Or even worse, find them stuck on one device only, unable to move freely between our various mediums. Thankfully, though, there are apps like SpotCha!, by the developer of the same name. The app ensures our iPhone’s are always connected to what’s going on with our computers, and without the hassle of tangled cords, too. For our full thoughts no this brilliant connectivity app for iOS, check below beyond the break!
Concept and Functionality
In essence, SpotCha! functions as a bridge between our iPhones and our computers, allowing us to view, save, and share our desktop media from our iOS device. The app does this by pairing our phone with our computers via the SpotCha! for Mac OS X app. This free piece of software can be downloaded from the developer’s website, and took relatively no time at all to install. Once up and running, the user selects a username and password before heading back to the iOS flavor of the offering. From there, any nearby servers can be detected atomically, and require only the security information listed above to join. If you’re looking for entry from afar, a simple IP address gets the job done. All in all, it’s unbelievably simple to pair our two devices, and even simpler to view our files.
In terms of raw file viewing potential, we do have to tip our hats to the lads at SpotCha!. The app handled all of our media with ease, and we especially appreciated the handy query bar. Through this search field, users can noodle for that document from last Thursday, locating and loading it in a pinch. The app’s speediness is also to be applauded, as we hardly had to wait at all, in most cases. Best of all, we greatly enjoyed the option to save our documents locally on the iPhone, as this allowed us to port our necessaries with us in a convenient and efficient manner. All in all, considering SpotCha! is so easy to set-up—as well as to use—we feel it’s a perfect fit for any tech savvy iPhone owner looking to access their computer’s files on the go.
Best of all, at a solid $0.99 in the App Store, SpotCha! won’t break the bank to download. The app is cheap, streamlined, one-hundred percent functionality, and easy to set-up. And with a description like that, we feel the app easily earns a four star rating, as well as our recommendation.
SpotCha! requires iOS 3.2 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
