How to Share Files Between Android, iOS, Mac and Windows. Your files are spread across phones, tablets and computers. Find the right apps to transfer files between Windows PCs, Macs, iPhone, iPad and Android devices. Your digital photos, documents, music, and other files are spread across a range of devices from your mobile phones to tablets and your computers. The devices are running different operating systems and therefore there’s no starard method that will allow you to easily copy files from one device to another.

For instance, how you do you transfer a file from your Android mobile phone to your iPad? The following how-to guide discusses apps, both web-based and mobile apps, that will help you transfer files, photos, web pages and everything else between your desktop computers and mobile devices easily without needing a USB cable. The popular and most obvious solution for sharing files across devices is email. AirDroid is probably the only app you’ll ever need for moving files in and out of your Android phone and tablet wirelessly. Easily connect Raspberry Pi to Gmail, Facebook, Twitter & more! Easily connect your Raspberry Pi to web services and social networks!

This tutorial demonstrates how to painlessly send and receive Gmail on the Raspberry Pi from Python, which in turn, allows you to easily connect it to web services and social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and more! This would normally be well beyond the abilities of most users due to the inherent complexities of programming through social media APis, client/server authentication, etc. However, with the easy-to-use web service Swiss Army knife ifttt (if this then that) anyone with even the most basic programming skills can dramatically expand the capabilities of their Raspberry Pi. How does this work? If you are not yet aware, ifttt is a great tool to simplify interaction with many social networks and other web services. It operates with the premise that when some specific action occurs it should perform some other predefined action. The interface is intuitive and very easy to quicky understand. Getting Started. Running a lightweight webserver on the Raspberry Pi (lighttpd) - Linux tutorial from PenguinTutor.

This guide covers setting up a light webserver on Linux using the lighttpd web server on the Raspberry Pi. Most of these instructions can also be applied to other Debian or Ubuntu based distributions (except the tasks using the raspi-config tool). I've already written a tutorial based on the "full-fat" Apache webserver (running a LAMP Apache based webserver on the Raspberry Pi). Lighttpd provides a way of setting up a web server without putting too much load on the limited processing capability. It's ideal for providing web access to the Raspberry Pi as a monitoring tool, or as a lightweight webserver for a personal website.

Debian Linux This is based on the Debian Raspberry Pi Raspbian. Using the command line and editing files As we are going to be doing this through the command line it is useful to understand a little about the shell. Throughout the install you will see many commands prefixed with sudo. Static network IP address The LAN settings are shown below: sudo reboot Using ssh. An Unofficial Raspberry Pi Blog: How to Setup Remote Desktop from a Windows Machine to your Raspberry Pi - Step by Step Guide.

System Tasks Easy Medium Advanced. Hacking a Raspberry Pi into a wireless airplay speaker. The raspberry pi is fully functional credit card-sized computer that is cheap enough ($25) that it can be used just for a single purpose. With this hack the computer imitates an airplay speaker, making it possible to send songs over to an old stereo wirelessly from your phone.

The Raspberry Pi generated massive hype in nerdy circles this summer when it came out and we’re beginning now to see some amazing hacks from this tiny computer now. I’ve had mine for a few months now but I hadn’t got around to using it yet. So I’ve now decided to try to make something that I’ve wanted for a while: a product to bring my good but dated speaker system into the 21st century by enabling wireless streaming of music to it. A possible way to do this would be to buy an Airport Express or an Apple TV and connect the audio out to the stereo. But then I would feel like overpaying for features like video streaming or wireless routing that wouldn’t be used. How to fake airplay compataility Raspberry Pi Wifi check.
