Polkast iOS and Android app updates

We just released updates to our iOS and Android app versions.

Yes, we now have streaming video!! Thank you all for your patience and your input. You can now do progressive streaming on supported file types. That’s where you start viewing right away while the video downloads. We still support download, temporarily stored in cache (or –on Android only — your SD card or internal memory), so you can watch offline.

Video formats that support progressive streaming are:

  • iOS — most .mov, mp4, .m4v and .3gp
  • Android — may vary depending on the device. The basic supported file types are listed here. There are third party apps that can extend Android’s capability – make sure you’ve installed a media player that supports streaming.

all videos with these file extensions will stream. There’s some detail around compression standards that could affect streaming, and your network bandwidth will have a big impact. Check out our FAQ for more information.

We also implemented smart caching on our mobile apps. This is especially important with large files on small capacity mobile devices. You don’t want to have to worry about managing your file storage. Recently viewed, favorites and files shared to you take priority in the smart cache. Thumbnails and your file index always remain in cache. So if you want to make sure a file stays in your local cache, mark it as favorite by tapping the gold star next to the file name.









And now iOS users can upload multiple files/photos at one time – another much-requested feature. It’s really easy to save files from your mobile/tablet back to your computer through Polkast.

Finally the app updates include some bug fixes and performance improvements.

We rely on your feedback to improve our product — please keep it coming! And look out for the software updates in the Apple and Android app stores.


  1. so can we now stream while away from computer cause mine keeps saying offline

    • Hi Rob, it sounds like you have a connectivity issue. First I have to check – your homebase computer has to be on and connected to the internet, otherwise you will see an offline status. Polkast will determine the best network connection between your devices (local, direct or relayed). Sometimes we have to go relay because of the network configuration. There’s more detail in our FAQ, or you can send your log files to support@polkast.com for them to investigate.

      And I’m sorry for my delay in replying to your comment, I missed the notification

  2. I am able to access it remotely

    Video playlist capability for folders please

    if possible keep video playing in background

    And amazing would be to see video playlist controls on locked screen

    I am hoping bluetooth controls will make it ontrol as well

    well to simplefy ur task there is no other player in the market provides all that (I am willing to pay $10 for this)

  4. EXif is on our roadmap. Thanks for the kind words!

  5. When I try to contact Polkast, the send option is not available. What’s up?

    • Hi, can you tell me what interface you are using to contact us? Or can you send an email to support@polkast.com? Sorry for any confusion. And thanks!
