Splashtop Inc., the worldwide leader in cross-device computing, today released file transfer and breadcrumb navigation features for FileHound, an app to remotely access computer files from an iPhone and iPod touch. Designed for small screens, FileHound is the easiest way to list, search and navigate documents, photos, music and videos on a computer.
