Although the GoFlex Media app is a bit plain, it's simple and easy to navigate. Users can access the files directly from the drive and initiate playback of content in the app, or even download select content to the tablet or smartphone's storage if space allows.
Additionally, users can actually stream three different files (i.e. movies) to three different devices simultaneously. Naturally, this will drain the Satellite's battery faster, but it could make everyone happy when that flight is delayed and you're all sitting around the terminal bored without anything to do.
Seagate's GoFlex Satellite is currently only being made with a 500GB 2.5-inch hard drive. With a price point of $199.99, that seems rather expensive considering how affordable 1TB and 2TB drives are getting these days. However, the reason to really buy this product is cord-freedom, which for avid tablet users and travelers might be a refreshing upgrade.
The iOS app is free and available to download from iTunes now. An Android app will be available in the Android Market later this summer.
