3 Reasons Why TappIn Beats iTunes Home Sharing

The demand for internet users to be able to share pictures, videos, and large files quickly and easily online has grown exponentially over the past few years as mobile technology has advanced. As sharing media online has become more popular, so has finding easy and secure ways of sharing that media.

One proposed media sharing solution introduced by iTunes is called iTunes Home Sharing. However, we have noticed some obvious problems with iTunes Home Sharing that make TappIn a considerably better media sharing option.

There are three reasons why TappIn beats iTunes Home Sharing

1. Remote Access

iTunes Home Sharing only allows users to access iTunes libraries that are connected to the same network. That means, if you are connected to a network with your iPhone, you can only access the iTunes libraries of other computers and mobile devices that are connected to the same network.

However, as soon as you leave that network, you can no longer access those libraries.

With TappIn, you do not need to be connected to the same network to access the iTunes libraries on other computers or devices. Once you have connected your devices to TappIn, you can immediately access your iTunes libraries from wherever you choose.

2. Unrestricted Access

iTunes Home Sharing allows its users to access the iTunes libraries of other computers and devices that are connected to the same network. So that if you are in one room in your house and want to listen to music or watch a movie on a computer in another room, you can access that media content without leaving the room you’re in.

The down side is that you are only able to access the iTunes library on another computer or device on the same internet network. If you have a Word document or other files you want to access from another computer on the same network, iTunes Home Sharing cannot give you access to those.

With TappIn, you have access to ALL of your music, data, files, etc. and not just what is stored in your iTunes libraries.

3. Unlimited (Mobile) Device Connections

With iTunes Home Sharing, you can only sync up to five computers on one network to share iTunes libraries at a time. iTunes Home Sharing is also only available on Apple mobile devices.

With TappIn, there is no limit on the number of mobile devices you can use to access your music libraries. TappIn is available on Android as well as Apple devices.
