Dropbox Debuts New Gallery App Carousel, Also Unveils New Features for Dropbox and Mailbox Services

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Looks like today has been a big day for Dropbox. Not only has the cloud storage service announced new features for Dropbox and Mailbox, but it's also revealed an all new photo gallery app called Carousel.

First off, 'Dropbox for Business' is now available for all users, and can be connected to their personal Dropbox in order to give them full access to all of their files whenever they need them. A new "auto-swipe" feature has also been added to Mailbox that will learn from your actions and start to perform them automatically - things like sorting emails into specific folders, muting conversations at certain times of the day, etc. It's basically Skynet, only instead of trying to wipe humankind off the face of the earth with an army of machines it helps to keep your inbox organized. Finally there's Carousel, a new photo gallery app that automatically organizes your photos, makes private sharing a breeze, and backs everything up so you won't have to worry about losing any precious memories.

You can find Carousel on the App Store for free.

Cloudee From Boxee Wants To Help You Share iPhone Videos

Posted by Jeff Scott on December 3rd, 2012
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Cloudee is a cloud based video service launched by video software company Boxee as a way to store, view, and share your iPhone recorded videos. The app allows you to upload videos from your camera roll directly to your account and share them via email from there. The videos, once uploaded, can be viewed via a browser on the desktop or iPad, on in the app on iPhone. A desktop app is available to allow you to upload videos from your desktop as well.

Cloudee is currently free during the beta period. After the beta is over you will be able to access anything you have previously uploaded. But it appears as though there will be a fee to upload anything after the beta is over. While it hasn't been announced, we can only assume that at some point these Cloudee videos will be available on your TV via the Boxee software.

DoubleDutch Releases Collaboration App, Pride

Posted by Kevin Stout on June 22nd, 2012

While the internet may complicate business and allow for quite the distance between working team members, that distance doesn't always have to be a hinderance. New and intuitive collaboration software is quickly popping up on many platforms. Pride is a new work collaboration solution on the iPhone by events and enterprise-focused developer DoubleDutch.

DoubleDutch Pride keeps teams up-to-date on current customers and projects being worked on, creates an atmosphere of openness for the team, and reduces the time and energy spent with meetings and constant emailing. Users can post updates with tagged customers, projects, or locations. Users can sort the feeds by customer, project, or the entire team's feed. The app also has a sort of game mechanic were users can earn trophies and badges, view their productivity analytics, and see a leaderboard with their own statistics stacked up against their co-workers.

DoubleDutch Pride is free, so there's no reason for you and your team not to give it a try.

ClipBox Keeps Notes and Pictures in the Cloud

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Popular note-collecting app Evernote may now have a little competition from newly released Clipbox. Clipbox, currently on a new-release sale of $0.99, collects various clips of text and audio for users and saves those clips in iCloud.

Information synced to Clipbox is also available in a browser; so Clipbox clips are accessible anywhere the internet is available. Like Evernote, clips can be tagged for easy discovery later. Clipboard text and photos can be brought into the app with one easy tap. And boxes can be created to hold clips that use the user’s own search terms for organization. Users can even create a passcode to keep unwanted users out of their information.

The app has a clean and easy-to-use interface with retina display graphics for both the iPhone and iPad retina displays. haha Interactive, the developer, has made it clear that feedback from their customers will influence how they update their app in the future.

Personal Cloud Service, PocketCloud, Released

Posted by Kevin Stout on April 18th, 2012

With the rise in popularity of “cloud” services like iCloud, Dropbox, and Box, another category of cloud services has started to pop up describing themselves as “personal clouds” or “private clouds.” PocketCloud, and it’s iOS app PocketCloud Explore, is one of those services.

These personal clouds often provide access to a remote computer instead of uploading all files to a “cloud” server in possession of the service. With the free version of PocketCloud Explore, users gain access to one remote computer, have 2GB of actual cloud storage, are limited in upload/download size, and audio and video streaming are restricted to 30 seconds. Subscribers can use ten remote computers, the upload/download limit increases to half a GB, and video and audio streaming becomes unlimited in length (Windows only, Mac coming soon).

PocketCloud comes with a companion program that must be installed on the remote computers users wish to access on the fly. The program is available for both Mac and Windows, but the Mac version is unable to stream audio and video as of now.

A PocketCloud subscription will cost $5 per month, but it’s currently on sale ($7.99 for three months and $23.99 for the year).

Ubisoft Will Save Games in the Cloud

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Ubisoft, developer of popular Assassin’s Creed series and MotoHeroz, has confirmed that its future games on iOS will store save data in the cloud. This means that players can pick a game on any of their iOS devices and access their game right where they left off.

The first game Ubisoft is planning on implementing this new feature in is Ghost Recon: Commander which will be released sometime soon. At first, I made the assumption that Ubisoft would be using iCloud for it’s save data, but the company will offer its own cloud-based storage system that isn’t exclusively for iOS.

iPad users with an iPhone or iPod touch will be particular happy with this news from Ubisoft. As an iPad gamer myself, I often prefer to play games on my iPad but it isn’t always available. So I play many games on my iPhone because it’s with me more. Now, for Ubisoft games at least, I’ll be able to use both devices interchangeably.

Flash Comes To The Classroom iPad Thanks To iSwifter's Rover

Posted by Jennifer Allen on February 2nd, 2012
iPad App - Designed for iPad only

Having grown up in a household of educators and now with numerous friends who teach, I've quickly learnt the importance of educating students in new and exciting ways. It keeps information interesting and relevant rather than becoming potentially stuffy and staid.

There are numerous ways to ensure this but one of the latest and most exciting ways is that of Rover from iSwifter.

Rover provides cloud-based streaming through iSwifter's technology, enabling iPads to stream Flash content alongside other useful education tools. Free to download, it's targeted towards the K-12 education sector having partnered with education brands such as Discovery Education, Mathletics and Funbrain. Partnering with such brands immediately makes Rover an immensely useful resource of offering both fun and knowledge without the child even realising how much they are learning.

Fundamentally, it means that children can use a classroom iPad to access such content rather than be restricted to the PC.

The app is easy to set up and offers a firewall-friendly solution to work around existing IT systems in schools while still maintaining the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA). It is worth mentioning that a Wi-Fi connection is required to use Rover even for those with 3G iPads. It's a small requirement, however, for an immensely useful educational tool.

Using the app is similarly easy to get to grips with thanks to digital textbook controls including a D-Pad, visual feedback for finger taps and support for a split keyboard form of control. Rover can even be paired with SMART board interactive whiteboards for added functionality. Each cross section of schooling is viewable separately from Elementary School to Middle and High School.

With increasing numbers of teachers using iPads within the classroom environment, Rover ensures that children have the best tools to learn with and in a fun and safe environment, too.

Rover is available now for the iPad and it's free to download.
