New Windows & Mac Updates!

Over the last month, our team has been working hard to stabilize and improve the performance of our Infinite Drive for Windows and Mac desktops.

Just released, the updated Windows and Mac desktop clients are now available for download on our website at www.bitcasa.com/download. We will also be pushing an in-app upgrade notification for all Mac users (Windows users should already have received a notification). With these updates you can expect faster upload and download times, and an overall improvement in performance and stability across the board.

Windows updates include:

  • Boosted Explorer performance

  • Faster performance when uploading concurrently from multiple machines

  • Optimized cache to make it faster and more responsive, especially for large or full caches

  • Improved performance on large copy jobs

  • File uploads from local cache will continue if Bitcasa is interrupted

  • Fixes Windows issue with displaying Mirrored drives named with a colon (i.e. “E:” will now display “E Drive” and be accessible from all Windows operating systems)

  • Ability to change your device’s name via the “Settings” menu

Mac updates include:

  • Major stability and performance improvements across the board

  • Improved performance on large copy jobs

  • Boosted Finder performance

  • Faster performance when uploading concurrently from multiple machines

  • Optimized cache to make it faster and more responsive, especially for large or full caches

We realize for many of you have been waiting for this, so thank you for your patience and continued support.

 

[UPDATE: Mac users -- if you experience an issue upgrading the Mac client, just delete the "Bitcasa" app from your Applications folder and run the latest version downloaded from http://www.bitcasa.com/download. Don't worry, all your data and settings will be perfectly safe!]

New iOS App & Updated Bitcasa for Mac!

This week, we are excited to announce the End of Beta with availability of some new products, with big improvements to our existing ones! Check out the new Mac and iOS features below:

New Mac App

Infinite Drive large copy

The new Mac Infinite Drive experience is here! This Mac-friendly Bitcasa Infinite Drive lives on your desktop. Move stuff to the drive to free up space on your computer, or “mirror” folders on your computer to your drive for automatic and continuous backup. Similar to the previously released Windows desktop app, users will notice a very simplified user experience, with the ability to easily send files to anyone, as well as access all files on any other device.

iOS App

iPhone Homescreen

With the Bitcasa app for iOS, you can view and share all your photo albums and documents, watch movies, and listen to music. Users can auto-backup their camera to save pictures and videos to their Bitcasa Infinite Drive automatically. Users can also “Favorite” items to download them locally so they are available offline without a data connection.
