    I just downloaded an excellent media server that streams video and audio from my Mac to my iPhone (StreamToMe). It also works with the iPad. It doesn't do images unfortunately so I was wondering if there are any apps in the store that would do the same for large folders of images? I just need to browse photos as simply as I could in the Finder.

    Hope someone can recommend something. Thanks.

    Hi Kahnyl, I created an app for that :) It's called ImageBank, you can get it here:

    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.

    For more information:

    or, search for ImageBank on the App Store.

    just found this thread.
    how exactly will the photos be used on the ipad? do they get stored on it or how does it work?
    would something like an autoimport function from a folder on the pc work?
    i am asking because i am a dentist and there would be a really big benefit of such functions.
    usually you take photos of the patient using a dslr. ideally the photos (raw+jpg) go through an eye-fi card to the pc where lightroom or the dentist program autoimports them. so if there was any chance that the pictures could be auto imported to the ipad as well and this in such a form that they can be scribbled on it would be perfect because so you could show the patient after the examination what you found using his photos. it surely is possible without the autoimport thing as well but it takes a series of clicks and edits which take time which you dont have in the surgery.
    as i said i think there would be a real benefit and demand from the dentist side. if you want to enlarge the functions of your program in this direction you can write me a mail and i can tell you what and how the workflow in the surgery would be. my mail is

    I am not sure whether you have already heard of it or not, but Photo Sync app can do this for you. It can wirelessly transfer photos between your iOS devices or between Mac and device over Wi-Fi.

    The iOS version is paid but desktop client is free. CHeck it out on App Store.
