Bertrand Serlet, former senior vice president of software engineering at Apple, has launched a new iCloud rival called Upthere Home. The service allows users to send all their digital files to the cloud to save local storage space, then makes them accessible anywhere.
Upthere Home isn’t just an iCloud rival; it’s also taking aim at Dropbox and just about any other cloud-based storage service. Users can send things like photos, videos, music, and documents to their online locker, then access it using the Upthere apps for mobile, or via the web.
The excellent auto-upload feature automatically imports all the photos and videos from your iOS device to the cloud, so you don’t have to worry about doing it manually. You can then remove them from your device to free up space, without having to worry about losing them.
Upthere Home is built to be speedy, so it’s ideal for iPhone and iPad users who need fast access to files on the go. It can also categorize your stuff automatically to make it easier to locate, and it has a great search tool that allows you to find files by time, location, and type.
Upthere Home also lets you share files you have uploaded with family and friends — no matter what device they use. Simply choose the things you want to share, select the people you want to share them with, and then hit send.
You can get started with Upthere Home by downloading the new app for iPhone via the link below.
