Bitcasa Advances Infinite Storage with New Mobile Design & Localization
San Francisco, California – San Francisco, California – Bitcasa, the inventor of secure infinite storage across all devices, today announces a fresh new design for its iOS application. In addition, all desktop and mobile apps have been localized to 11 languages. With a sleek new look and feel coupled with strong performance updates, consumers around the globe get an unmatched iOS mobile experience. Users now have one secure place to store, consume and share their content from any device, all without ever having to worry about capacity or the need to back up.
According to Gartner, the average household will increase its digital content from 464 gigabytes to 3.3 terabytes by 2016. Simultaneously, the Anywhere Consumer is demanding capabilities beyond the traditional hard drive, including the ability to connect, share and access content easily on any device without worrying about storage constraints. Bitcasa is well poised to meet this capacity challenge; since launching earlier this year, it has nearly doubled the amount of consumer data stored from 18 to 28 petabytes.
We are redefining cloud storage and are committed to solving one of the biggest challenges with digital content capacity. With Bitcasa 2.0, we have designed a beautiful mobile experience that simplifies content access and sharing, while making capacity worries a thing of the past, said Tony Gauda, CEO and co-founder of Bitcasa. With nearly half of Bitcasa’s paying customers residing outside the United States, the addition of international languages will improve the experience for consumers around the world.
An Intuitive New iOS Mobile Experience
New design: A more visual user interface surfaces content that is most interesting and relevant. Additionally, finding stuff or getting organized has never been easier with the new sidebar menu.
Smart search: Users can now search on every page and sort by name or date.
Easier access: Recent files show up right on the home screen. Users can toggle between viewing by recently added or recently viewed.
Enhanced security: In addition to Bitcasa’s client-side encryption, users can now set a passcode lock on the app to prevent unauthorized access to their content on the device.
In app payments: iOS users can purchase Infinite Storage plans directly through the app.
Localization for English-US, English-UK, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese (traditional), Chinese (simplified), Japanese and Korean.
The Fastest Sharing Experience Ever
Consumers are generating more content than ever. That content is useless when it is stuck on phones, tablets, or SD cards. Bitcasa liberates that content by automatically uploading photos and videos from iPhones and iPads to the Infinite Drive. Then from any device, users can create Send To Friend links to stream and share files of any size to their friends and family, whether they are Bitcasa users or not.
Consumers can get Infinite Storage for only $10 a month or $99 a year. Consumers can also enjoy 10GB of Bitcasa storage for free.
Founded by former Mastercard and Mozy employees and backed by top-tier investors, including Horizons Ventures, Pelion Venture Partners, Samsung Ventures and Andreessen Horowitz, Bitcasa is redefining how consumers are storing and accessing their data. Bitcasa offers access to the Infinite Drive across all devices; supported clients are Android, iOS, Windows, Windows RT, Mac OSX, and the web. Users never have to worry about disk space again. They can save, access, and share an unlimited number of documents, pictures, music, and movies from any device. Everything is encrypted locally and backed up in the cloud, so user data is always safe and secure. Copyright (C) 2013 Bitcasa. All Rights Reserved.
