    Sorry if Im overlooking the obvious, but is there a way to browse photos on your laptop similar to how Air Video lets you watch video?

    Preferably something native, not like Goodreader or Airshare where you have to copy it over or Logmein where you have to take control of the laptop.

    Thanks! And apologies if this is obvious.

    I know. That's why I'm asking if there is something similar for photos.

    I found an app called Air Photo, but the description is written in poor English so I'm not so sure about the quality of the app.

    Most people read the post before commenting, not just the title.

    Sorry OP, I don't think I know of anything to meet your standards.

    Oi... tried both Air Photo and File Browser, and they both crash b/c of the large size of the JPGs. :(

    Air Video will have photos support but it is unknown when they'll get to it. They are working on adding music support as well.

    Here's the specific thread for the photos.
    There's a question mark at the end, suggesting that the OP is looking for something. You should be reading the OP post instead of focusing on the title anyway.

    It was pretty clear to me. Why was it misleading?

    That is awesome!!!! I am totally selling my macbook air and replacing it with a mac mini to serve as a central repository of all my media. Mr. Jobs was truly on to something with this iPad deal.

    Thank you sirs and ladies.

    I actually understood EXACTLY what he meant when he wrote it. I specifically came in to the post to see if anyone had any interesting answers on this subject

    You can use a media server app in your mac (like Playback or something) and then you will need an app in your iPad, that can get the stream from the server.

    Unfortunately, only PlugPlayer seems to fit to this kind of app but it doesnt have good reviews.

    The nice thing about Playback, is that it even streams your Apperture library, with projects, etc.

    So all we have to do is to wait for such an app!

    I just released this app called ImageBank that streams photos to you, sort of like AirVideo except with photos :)

    You download a server application that runs on your computer, and you select which folders you want to share. You can also add "Private Folders" that won't appear on your app unless you have the correct password.

    It currently streams photos to you over Wi-Fi. It can work over a cellular connection as well, but you'd need to fiddle with your router settings to get it to work (instructions on how to do that will appear soon on the website). I'm going to be updating the app so that streaming over a cellular connection is a painless affair.

    Here's the iTunes link:
    http://itunes.com/apps/ImageBank

    For more information:
    http://imagebank4ios.weebly.com/index.html

    or, search for ImageBank on the App Store.

    This looks like it's just what I need, but it needs to be universal binary, so I can use it on my iPad too.

    Lol. I posted this like 3 months ago and people are still debating whether the title was misleading.

    Thanks for the heads up on ImageBank, I'm going to look into that.

    I tried Air Photos by it hung up on really large jpegs

    I can't get imagebank to work on Windows 7(can't see my server on the iPhone). Air video works fine, so theres nowt wrong with my wireless setup.

    I was going to recommend Cinq, as well. I agree it does what the OP is looking for (and more). Note that it's not just an iPad app - I use it on my iPhone. If you use Cinq's camera to take your photos on your phone, then you can even have the photos automatically sync with your PC, wirelessly, as you take them (over Edge, 3G, or wifi).

    Hi Bergerfan,

    You might need to install/reinstall Bonjour for Windows:
    http://support.apple.com/kb/DL999

    Run ImageBank Server on your computer, and run the App on your iDevice. You should be able to see it when you add a server.

    If that doesn't work, you can add the server manually:
    Tap "+" -> Add a Server Manually

    Enter your IP address of your computer - you can find this by going to Start -> Run -> cmd.exe -> ipconfig (ex: 192.168.1.100)

    For the port, enter 42111 (that's the default).

    If it still doesn't work, feel free to PM me and I can help you get this working.

    Thanks for trying it out, and my apologies for the setback you ran into.

    I would send a PM if I could, but that option is absent in your profile.
    Anyways. I'm having zero luck in getting this thing to work. My iDevices just don't see the server, even after doing everything you say above. :confused:

    Tsk..tsk...

    No it's YOU that is misleading yourself T4retard06. If you can't be polite and keep up with the adults, then you will have to sit at the kiddies table.
