Today, we’re rolling out a makeover to our Android app with new some great new features and performance updates, all based on what we heard from you.
A shiny new face
We’ve added a more intuitive home screen design with easier navigation.
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.
Check out the updates and let us know what you think! iOS users, stay tuned – we’ll be rolling out updates to the iOS platform next.
