Don’t use the home screen? Now you have the option to bypass it and go straight to “My Drive” every time! Make this simple change in Settings.

Even easier to find and share

Photo albums are now sorted by date (recent – oldest), so you can instantly find your recently uploaded snaps. We have also made our share links shorter for easy sending via SMS, email, and more!

Don’t like your latest pics?  You now have the ability to easily delete files within sub-category views (“Photos”, “Videos”, “Documents”, etc.).

Easier access to your Favorite stuff

Enjoy easier access to any files you need offline from any device you have. Our popular “Favorite” feature has been added to the quick action menu in “My Drive” view along with better “star” icons to indicate Favorites in both list and tile view. It gets better, “Favorited” items now show up while downloading, with progress bars!

And one of the updates we’re most excited about is that you can “Favorite” your ENTIRE music and photo albums, for quick access to folders while you’re offline whether you’re on the bus, travelling or in a Wi-Fi free zone.

Visibility into uploads

We have added an “Upload Manager” page to view and track in-progress uploads, cancel uploads, view completed uploads, and resume failed uploads, so you can rest assured that you have successfully “Bitcasa’d it.” This upload feedback can also be seen within “My Drive” view when uploading.

3. Shorter Send Links
We have taken a hint from the folks at Bitly and shortened our sharing links so they’re easier to include in your emails, Facebook posts, and tweets.

4. My Drive is the new Folders

We have renamed the “Folders” view to “My Drive” to better reflect all the content you have on Bitcasa. Click it to see what’s on your Infinite Drive. We will be doing this across all our applications for a more seamless experience.

5. A Better Photo Viewing Experience

We know that album art from your music collection can clutter your Photos view. We now filter for any small photos under 50kb in size to be excluded from the “Photos” section.
