ActiveCloud for iOS Enables Seamless Management of Local and Cloud-Based Files
Mobile software company Pocket Watch has released its cloud storage management application, ActiveCloud 1.0, for iOS. ActiveCloud enables users to manage their files from their iPhone or iPad, whether they are stored locally, on cloud-storage accounts such as Box.net and Dropbox, or in iTunes File Sharing or iWork.com.
Cloud-storage services such as Box.net or Dropbox enable users to store their files remotely, but ActiveCloud enables users to do more with those files directly from their iPad or iPhone. With ActiveCloud, users can open files for viewing, as long as they have an iPad or iPhone app capable of opening the file. They can send files as e-mail attachments, copy or move them between local and cloud-storage locations, and print them to an AirPrint compatible printer. ActiveCloud also includes a preview function for Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF, photo, and other common file types.
Key features of ActiveCloud include:
- Management of local and cloud-based files in Box.net, Dropbox, or iTunes File Sharing;
- Seamless file copying and moving between local and cloud-based storage services;
- Access to iWork files;
- Ability to e-mail files; and
- Document printing using AirPrint.
Pocket Watch Software was founded in 2002 and also developed ActivePrint and ActivePrint Traveler.
ActiveCloud 1.0 for iOS requires iOS 4.0 and 3.7 MB of space. It is available for $3.99 from the Apple App Store. Further information about ActiveCloud can be found here.
