Microsoft recently released their new Windows 8 operating system to the public. Windows 8 relies heavily on the new “Metro-style” interface and the corresponding Windows App Store.
In conjunction with this release, Bitcasa is excited to announce the launch of our Windows 8 app! The app supports standard Windows (for desktop and laptop computers). A version with RT support (for tablets) is awaiting approval in the Windows App Store.
What we’ve built is an innovative and unique experience for accessing all your content you have stored with Bitcasa. This is very similar to the focus of our iOS and Android apps, coming in a few weeks.
What the App Does
The Bitcasa app goes well beyond just simple access to your folders and files. The app delivers a rich experience around listening to your music albums, watching videos, viewing and sharing photos, and reading your documents.
How to Get the App
Access the Bitcasa app here, or visit the Windows App Store in Wondows 8 and search for “Bitcasa”. Click “install” and the app will download to your new Windows 8 start menu for easy access.
The app is totally free, so try it out today. We’d love to hear your feedback, and if you love it as much as we do, feel free to leave a rating and review. We’d love to hear your thoughts and will continue to make the app even better.
Thanks to all our loyal Bitcasa users, and remember, stay infinite my friends.
– Luke, Product Manager @ Bitcasa
