HomePipe Now Streams iTunes Music to Your Android Device


HomePipe Networks, a company which lets users access their home computer while on the go, is announcing today that the latest version of their Android app will allow streaming of iTunes music to Android devices. For those keeping score at home, this is an industry first. 

Using either 3G or WiFi, it’s possible to stream your music collection directly to that Droid Incredible you picked up earlier today!  With no signs of DRM or shenanigans, the content resides on the computer and is not affected or modified in any way.  The days of copying your favorite tunes to a microSD card or uploading them to a cloud are over as HomePipe’s free app and service handle it all for you.

Aside from the iTunes streaming, the HomePipe Service also supports access to videos, photos, and documents.  Have a folder full of Memorial Day pictures you want to show off at work?  Access them with HomePipe.  For more information on how HomePipe works, head to their website.


  1. Apple just got a slap for Android developers. Your own software, iTunes, will be broadcast via the Internet to a phone directly competing operating system.

  2. I like HopePipe on my Droid, but I am uncomfortable about opening up shares on my home PC for remote access. How secure is HomePipe? I'm not worried so much about the company having access, but the rest of the world? That is scary!

  3. Regarding your concern about security, the outbound connection from your computer to the HomePipe service is encrypted over SSL. It is totally safe and secure.

    RE: Subsonic

    Doesn't look like the installation is something novice users could understand if they ran into problems.

    HomePipe is dead simple to setup.

    From Subsonic web site:

    With Subsonic you can access your music anywhere on the internet or from your iPhone or Android phone. However, in order to do that certain conditions must be met:

    * Your router must have a public IP address and must be accessible from the internet. This is true for most home internet connections.
    * Your router must support the UPnP protocol so that Subsonic can setup the appropriate port forwarding. If your router doesn't support this you will have to configure the port forwarding manually.
