Bitcasa cloud storage service goes mobile with native apps for Android and other platforms
Bitcasa is a cloud storage service start up that aims to provide unlimited cloud storage to its users. Now, the service has gone mobile by releasing native apps for popular platforms. The Android client for Bitcasa is available for download in the Play Store.
Along with the dedicated Android app, Bitcasa has also released a Windows app, which is also available now. Before the apps were released, users could only access the service through its HTML5-based site on mobile devices. The company has also announced that native apps for both iOS and OS X platforms are also close to ready and will be released for public in the beginning of January next year.
Using the mobile apps, users will be able to stream music stored on their drive, access documents on the go, and also access photos stored in their account. The apps are capable of organizing files for the user, no matter what folder structure was used to store them from the computer. Users can also share the files and folders stored on their drive using the app with those who have Bitcasa account as well as those who don’t.
The app, like Bitcasa’s website, uses patent-pending “Infinite Drive” which is both encrypted and proprietary. For those who don’t know, the “Infinite Drive” acts as a virtual external hard drive for the user that continues to grow as more data is stored on it. Every byte of data that is stored on Bitcasa’s servers is encrypted which, according to Bitcasa CEO Tony Gauda, is inaccessible even to the Bitcasa team.
If you are an Android user you can grab the Bitcasa app from the Play Store link in the sources section below. Bitcasa provides infinite cloud storage to users for $10 per month subscription.
