Recently we talked about SkyDrive Explorer, a software that allows you to browse your cloud based storage from within my computer. The software featured in this post, FeelHome, does quite the opposite of what SkyDrive Explorer does. It allows you to connect to your home computer through a web browser from anywhere in the world. With this cool app, you can browse the hard disk of your home computer, copy files, alter files, share and save them from remote locations may it be at work, school or in prison (if you have connectivity that is :p ). You can even shut down your home machine from the web interface when you are done. Best part about this application is that it doesn’t involve a complex configuration process. Thanks to the straightforward installation and well presented instructions, the software is usable by both power users and novice users alike.
There’s a lengthy explanation of how FeelHome works on its homepage https://www.nuxinov.com/ but if you don’t have the time for it, here’s a shorter three step process to get it working quickly.
- Download FeelHome client from this location https://www.nuxinov.com/install.php.
- Your home computer needs to have the FeelHome client installed and connected to the internet for this to work. Run the installer, create a FeelHome account and log in (all of these can be done from the setup process itself).
- That’s it. You can now login to your computer from any location in the world, simply by visiting https://www.nuxinov.com/feelhome/login.php. (Use the same credentials you used in step 2)
Once logged in, you can download files from the home machine, upload files to the home machine and even invite friends to share your files. There are some other features such as virtual desktop which we leave you to discover. Cool part is that the remote computer used to access the home PC does not need to have any software installed. All you need to have is a web browser. I’ve been using FeelHome for some time now and it’s worked pretty well so far. However, note that the service is still in beta.
This may sound too good to be true but FeelHome is not without restrictions. While the service is free, there are some limitations to bandwidth usage and maximum downloadable file size (7.63 Mb max file size and 24mb bandwidth usage per month). However, we hear that these restrictions will be relaxed as the software goes out of beta in a couple of months. EDIT: You can also get extra bandwidth by inviting friends to the service.
