    I will tell you that I have looked for an app to do this starting AGES ago. Windows file sharing uses CIFS/SMB protocols, Apple does not in the iOS devices. There are NO other apps that I can find that do this (Not Goodreader, etc.). So yay! I will bet that this app uses an un-approved API. Shhhh...

    well wadenut.. it works...
    i didnt have much time to mess with it.. but it did what it said..

    i could connect to my whs.. and it listed all shares.. then the wife was able to go into photos...
    then launch a photo and swipe finger and it scrolled through them...

    now at first it didnt have the thumbnail of the pic but it does now. so im a apple dummy so not sure why that happened.. and i dont want to know..

    i dont use my wifes ipod, iphone and now her ipad.. i have no interest..

    One way to connect is by using the free app PocketCloud. This is a remote desktop app for the ipad that works very well. I use it all the time to access my Homeseer computer. It also has a cloud connection, but I do not use ithat function.

    Let us know. I'm not in need at the moment, but access to my media files would be convenient.

    I have no idea but I did find this: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/fileb...364738545?mt=8
    Not exactly free, but less than the cost of a BigMac combo.
