Have you Checked out our New Web App Yet?

We’ve released an intuitive, sleek Web app with enhanced capabilities that make it easier to store, find and stream your digital content.

Some of the cool new features in our updated Web app include:

  •  Intuitive design: We’ve added a navigation sidebar on the left so you can easily drag and drop files to move or upload them and quickly select files to move, copy and rename.
  • Improved data and device management: Do you use Bitcasa from your smartphone, desktop AND tablet? Now you can view all of your Bitcasa-connected devices in one screen. With a unified view you can remotely manage and cancel sessions in the case of lost or stolen devices.

  • Unified viewer: From movies to RAW images, you can simultaneously view multiple files with our new unified viewer.

  • Share with family and friends:  Have a birthday photo album you want to quickly share? With the new app update sharing just got simpler! Thanks to deeper integration with Facebook, Twitter and email you can more easily send files to your social circles with the click of a button.

Bitcasa New Portal

 The introduction of our slick new Web app is just one of the ways we are making it easier to access and store your digital belongings. On our roadmap we also have bandwidth controls, collaborative folders, large upload performance, increased computer resource management (CPU, memory usage, etc.) and Proxy support.

 Stay tuned for more updates and let us know what you think of the new Web app!

The ONLY cloud storage that is truly private

Hesitant about prying eyes viewing your files? Well, we’re beefing up your mobile security. In addition to our existing client-side encryption that makes it cryptographically impossible for anyone else to see your stuff, you can now also set a Passcode Lock on our mobile apps so you never have to worry about unwelcomed eyes accessing your files on your phone and tablet.

Time to Get Organized

Drag and drop. How much simpler can it get? With the new browser file management, you can upload files by dragging any file directly into your browser. You can also create, rename and share your files and folders directly at my.bitcasa.com. Now if only organizing your house was that easy! Don’t forget, you can stream your music and videos from the web without any wait time or making space to download files.
