Startup HomePipe has raised $1.1 million in Series A funding from a group of angel investors, including Mark DiSalle. This brings the startup’s total funding to $1.8 million.
HomePipe, which launched in March of 2010, allows users to access, view and share digital content (e.g. high resolution photos, videos, presentations, documents, and music) stored on a home or work computer from any web browser or mobile device. What makes HomePipe unique is that users can stream their iTunes library to their Android phone.
HomePipe’s web application is available for free with a limit on the number of uses, and the premium offering costs $23.99 for annual subscription. And HomePipe offers Android, iOS and Windows Phone7 apps as well. The new funding will be used towards product development and customer acquisition.
HomePipe faces competition from mSpot, Zecter (which was acquired by Motorola Mobility) and others.
