Access Your Personal Cloud From Windows Phone 7

A personal cloud is the ability to access files and media stored on a device or computer in your home from an Internet connection. Devices that you can buy to make a personal cloud include the PogoPlug (for which there are iPhone, iPad, and Android apps) and Windows Home Servers.

WHS Phone is a $3.99 app for Windows Phone 7 that accesses content on a Windows Home Server. The Windows Home Server needs to be configured to be accessed from the Internet, and you need to install a plug-in that works with WHS Phone.

You can stream audio to your phone using WHS Phone as well as open pictures and files. The following video shows how the app works.
