Today a person has a number of gadgets in regular use. It is not uncommon to find somebody who owns a computer, a tablet, and a smartphone. While each of these devices has its own set of advantages, there is one problem associated with using many devices: sometimes you forget which device you stored a digital file in.

This is a big problem when the file is an important one. Imagine exploring the files on your iPhone at work, thinking that you have a presentation file stored there, only to recall that the file was actually stored on your computer. In such instances, what you need is a user-friendly remote way to access your files. There are apps that let you do this but they require synchronization – something that one often forgets.

Here to offer a better solution is a tool called Younity.


Younity is a free to use application for iOS devices in addition to Windows and Mac computers. This application lets you remotely access on your computer files from your smartphone that has Younity installed. You start by installing the app one all of your devices.

Let us suppose that you installed the app on your Windows computer and iPad. You can use your iPad anytime to stream the files from your computer. These don’t need to be media files – it can be any format. If you are using an iOS app to play media being streamed, Younity will convert incompatible formats in real time into formats that are playable on your device.



Younity makes it easier to get remote access to all of your files – pictures, videos, documents, etc. and none of your data is stored on Younity’s servers, which protects the privacy of your data.


  • A user-friendly application.
  • Has versions for iOS devices and Windows plus Mac computers.
  • Lets you access your files from any device.
  • Can convert media formats in real time to be device-compatible.
  • Does not store your data on its servers.

    This review says: "This application lets you remotely access files from any one of your devices using any other device on which you have installed Younity."

    Unfortunately, this is incorrect. According to Younity's support site, you can't use their app between iOS devices, like to grab a file off your iPad with your iPhone. This is because of built-in limitations of the operating system. (I assume it's the result of each app having a private storage area.)

    Younity is for indexing files on a desktop, then getting them remotely on a mobile device.
