Paragon Android App Mounts External Hard Drives to Phones/Tablets
Meet the Paragon NTFS & HFS+ beta app, used to mount external hard drives to Android phones and tablets. Software company Paragon hopes to make Android devices compatible with drives formatted for Mac or Windows. The Paragon NTFS & HFS+ Android app launched today in beta phase and it works on any device running Android 2.3 and higher.
You need a device that supports USB storage, such as the Xoom, Galaxy Tab or Samsung Galaxy S III, plus you need root access and an adapter to connect the HDD. There are a lot of conditions to comply with for making this work, but for some humongous extra storage, it’s well worth it. Paragon originally launched the compatibility software only for manufacturers, but now it’s able to reach out to consumers directly.
The app is free, takes up 1.2 MB of space and gives you full and unlimited access to the most popular file systems in the world. You can copy, transfer and modify data on NTFS storage units, plus the HFS+ ones. Flash drives, hard disk drives and other media with NTFS and HFS file system are support here.
