The faspex™ mobile app for Apple iOS and Google Android enables faspex users to distribute content from their mobile devices or to download content onto their devices using the faspex email-style workflow, adapted to the look and feel of the native device email apps.
Mobile recipients automatically receive notifications of new content available for download and downloaded content (video or imagery) can be viewed inline or stored on the device directly to the Gallery. The data is transferred at high speed over the user's wireless network with Aspera FASP® transport technology, making full use of the available bandwidth.

Customer Success Stories
What's New in Faspex Mobile for iOS 3.1
Aspera Faspex Mobile for iOS is a small version enhancement primarily intended to support receiving packages sent to Faspex external users. New features and capabilities:
- External package support - This version adds support for opening external packages without having to configure an account. This broadens the app to be able to be used to receive packages by people without Faspex server accounts. The app will now handle package links, opening the specified package in the app, even when the user does not have an account configured, and then allow the user to see package metadata and to download assets from the package into the mobile device
What's New In Faspex Mobile for Android 3.0
Aspera Faspex Mobile for Android 3.0 is a complete re-architecture of the Android Faspex client. It leverages and requires the Faspex 4.1 server-side API. The app UI has been updated to be consistent with the Android Material Design guidelines, like other newer Android apps from Aspera.
- Compose and send Faspex packages - The mobile user can directly within the app compose and send a Faspex package. The package compose view includes a media picker that can be used to easily add photo and video content to the package
- Receive Faspex packages - The mobile user has visibility into their Faspex inbox, and can download whole packages or individual items from packages on to the Android device. Packages with custom metadata fields will have that metadata shown to the user when viewing the package
- Send packages from other Android apps - The app supports the Android sharing paradigm to allow other apps to send their content in Faspex packages. When content is shared into the Faspex app, the user will be placed into a package composition view, where they can finish entering data for the recipient, and then send the package
- Send packages to Faspex dropboxes - The mobile user can also send to Faspex dropboxes, if the user is permitted to send to any dropboxes. If those dropboxes have custom metadata defined to be entered by the user, then the app UI will include support for whatever metadata is required for the dropbox
- SAML support - SAML login is now fully supported by the Android app. The app will now be usable by enterprise customers using SAML-based SSO solutions
- Multi-select when adding attachments - The app now supports the ability to select multiple items from the media gallery in one action, simplifying and speeding-up package composition
- Support for un/archiving and permanently deleting packages - The app now allows the Faspex user to archive and unarchive packages, as well as to permanently delete them, from within the app
- Support for server default metadata profile for normal packages - The app will respect the server-side specification of a metadata profile for normal packages, and will compose normal Faspex packages with whatever that profile specifies
- Support for date type metadata fields - The Faspex date-related metadata fields are now supported in the app, both in composing new packages and in displaying packages to be received
- Pull-down-to-refresh in inbox view - The inbox state can now be updated on demand with a "pull-to-refresh" action, allowing the app user to get an updated inbox whenever they want (the inbox also still updates in the background as before)
- Leverages Android Settings for app account settings - The app performs account management through Android Settings, making the app accounts get delivered to the Android device user in a more consistent way
- Consistent with the Android Material Design guidelines - The app now has the familiar Android Material Design style, making the app more familiar to Android users
