LogMeIn Starts Beta Cloud Storage Service, Cubby [Updates]
LogMeIn , the handheld remote control, file sharing, and systems management and information backup site and repair, started offering invitations to their new beta cloud service, Cubby . This website and mobile file sharing app service may be very corresponding to Dropbox but with several unique features which can attract many users.
Cubby include an integrated desktop, web, and mobile application for storing and sharing files over the net. Cubby is built on LogMeIn’s Gravity Data Services and its own, proprietary data synchronization and storage cloud. It’s cross-platform for Mac and PC desktops, and might be downloaded as a free iPad, iPhone , and Android app .
Any folder to your hard disk can be became a Cubby and synced and shared over the net. The same as Dropbox, Cubby-created folders, and subfolders, can include public links that may be sent to others for accessing and downloading content from those folders. Any quite file may be added to a Cubby created folder. Content of Cubby folders may be shared with others either by inviting them right into a cubby, which lets both parties see, work with, and sync content; or they are able to simply send people read-only links to files and cubbies.
Unlike Dropbox, Cubby users can pick and judge which folders should be synchronised to chose devices, in preference to all folders being synchronised the way in which they’re in Dropbox.
LogMeIn says Cubby takes good thing about industry-wide encryption standards to make sure data is protected perpetually. Users would be the sole owner and holder in their encryption keys.
