Pocketster for Pocket PC
The file sharing software is now available on Handango. Discover nearby users and share files with them. Connect your iPod and stream files to a nearby computer or another Pocketster user.

Pocketster is the world's first wireless personal web server for the PocketPC that advertises itself to other Pocket PCs in the neighbourhood using WiFi networks and Rendezvous. Pocketster also allows you to browse for nearby devices running Pocketster and view the content published by the Pocketster server on those devices. You can also browse for regular Rendezvous services published on your network.

Here are a few cool uses for the Pocketster:

  • Personal advertising and matchmaking - Publish information about yourself (a picture, personal details, maybe a streaming recording of your voice - you name it!). You can also use it in corporate environments or at tradeshows (carry your "electronic business card" in your pocket and have people discover you and browse your "pocketable" web server for details)

  • Share your media collection with passers-by or look at theirs while sharing a ride on the bus. Pockster bundles a Macromedia Flash-based sound preview tool to allow you to also stream sound from other Pocketster users.

  • Carry your important presentations or other files in your pocket and have them instantly available on your wireless corporate network simply by browsing for your "pocketable" web server using Rendezvous.
