Skifta

Skifta

Skifta is billed as a different way of controlling your collection of music, videos, and photos and taking it with you. There is no uploading to the web or syncing to your phone. Skifta allows media to be shifted from one place or device to another via streaming, not downloading.

With your smartphone or tablet you can also stream it to DLNA-Certified and UPnP-compatible TVs, IP-connected stereos, PlayStation 3 game consoles, Windows 7 PCs, NAS drives, and thousands of other connected consumer electronics devices anywhere.

Skifta requires Android 2.2 or higher to work.

Features:

  • Wi-Fi support for home access and 3G support for on-the-go access
  • DLNA Certified application capable of streaming personal media to any DLNA-certified gadget
  • Access media stored on a PC or NAS drive
  • Media shifting
  • Cloud media services in the form of channels. A channel is an internet or cloud service that has been integrated into the application
  • Mobile network support

Verdict:

Skifta has a number of admirable features but its use as a media streamer over a NAS drive is limited somewhat by the omission of some central features such as being unable to create playlists, or different playback options such as shuffle playback.
