Home-Sharing on Steroids - Since I only wanted to allow my children at college access to our shared itunes media away from home, setting up Lion Server was just over kill. StreamToMe provided an easy way to set up streaming both within and outside of a home WiFi network. Setting up the companion program SERVETOME on my iMAC at home along with a dynDNS link to my local network was surprisingly simple. In a couple of minutes my children living in Massachusetts and Mississippi were able to log on to my iMac running ServeToME with an ID and password and access our itunes media through the internet on StreamToMe. (Note: While the default video quality is 480p it was easy to increase the streaming quality to 720P.) While I was traveling I listened to my music stored on the server. The video and sound quality on my iPhone and Laptop was great. Bottom-line: If you aren't ready to configure Lion Server (like I am) consider StreamToME and ServeToMe as home-sharing on steroids.
Another NOT free - Why bother stating an app is Free when it requires you to spend $$$ for another device, another app for iphone, etc. Just, for cripessakes, say it upfront. This kinda crap turns people off. Either it's a free version or it's not. If it requires you to buy something else to make a "free" app work, then it aint free. Jeez!
