Anyway of sending an nzb on my phone to Newsbin on my comp?

This isn't a Newsbin question specifically, but is this possible? My normal method is to TeamViewer into my computer, but it's a pain. Are there any better solutions out there? It be much easier to browse nzb sites natively on my phone.

I have Newsbin set to look for files in a location under Dropbox. On my phone/tablets my browser allows me to download NZB files and save them to this Dropbox location which means they automatically get synced to the PC and picked up by Newsbin. This technique should also work for other cloud based storage solutions.

That sounds perfect, thanks! I'm guessing I need to keep Newsbin open for this to work?

Yes if you want Newsbin to start downloading immediately. If not then Newsbin will pick up the NZB file the next time it is started.
