Sync, Access and Share Digital Content with New Snap Sync Cloud Service for Mobile and Desktop Devices

New Service Lets Consumers Securely Synchronize and Back Up Information to the Cloud for Instant, Anywhere Access

PRINCETON, N.J., Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Snap MyLife, Inc. (www.snapmylifeinc.com), developer of cloud-service applications for consumers and families, today announced the launch of Snap Sync (www.mysnapsync.com), its new content synchronization cloud service. With Snap Sync, users can sync their photos, videos, music and documents in the cloud for instant access across their Android smartphones and tablets, Windows PC and Mac OS X computers, and other internet-enabled devices via Snap Sync's browser interface.

Consumers can setup their devices to sync within minutes, automatically syncing and backing up content. Snap a photo with a phone and it instantly syncs to the cloud. Download a song at home and listen to it on the go. Access and download documents on any device with a browser.

"Snap Sync is a simple, consumer-friendly cloud service for anywhere access to your information," said Jiren Parikh, president and CEO at Snap MyLife, Inc.  "With secure cloud storage and automatic syncing of all your data, Snap Sync makes it easy to manage your digital life. And, because everything is automatic, it makes for an incredibly simple and reliable backup tool. Just set it and forget it."

Snap Sync device and application support:

  • Snap Sync mobile app for Android 2.2 and above lets users access all their files from all their devices using their Android smartphone or tablet and automatically sync music, photos and videos from the device to the cloud.
  • Snap Sync desktop app for Windows XP SP3 and above and Mac OS X v10.6 and above lets users drag and drop folders from any PC or Mac to sync them to the cloud.
  • Snap Sync Browser Access is available from any Internet-enabled device with a browser and lets users view, search, share and download content across linked devices.

Future releases include downloadable Snap Sync apps for Microsoft Windows 8 and Apple iOS devices, as well as enhanced browser support, including off-line content access.

Simplicity is key. Snap Sync automatically organizes and groups content from all of your sync-enabled devices into photo, video, music or document "content views" for easy access regardless of where it originated. To find files fast, users can search by keyword or sort by file name, date or size, as well as easily share files via email and file links. Snap Sync can be set to sync only over Wi-Fi so as not to consume cellular data bandwidth.

A Snap Sync subscription starts at $89.89 annually with 10 GB of data storage included for unlimited devices. Subscribers are instantly enrolled in the Snap One premium service, which provides access to a portfolio of applications, plus storage plans extending up to 1 terabyte. Snap One applications include Snap Sync for data synchronization and access, Snap Secure for mobile, personal and family security and Snap MyLife for managing and sharing photos. Users sign in with a single username and password to manage all apps through a convenient web dashboard.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
SYS-CON Events announced today that IceWarp will exhibit at the 17th International Cloud Expo®, which will take place on November 3–5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Lee Williams, a producer of the first smartphones and tablets, will talk about how he is now applying his experience in mobile technology to the design and development of the next generation of Environmental and Sustainability Services at ETwater. He will explain how M2M controllers work through wirelessly connected remote controls; and specifically delve into a retrofit option that reverse-engineers control codes of existing conventional controller systems so they don't have to be replaced and are instantly converted to become smart, connected devices.
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...

Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
With the Apple Watch making its way onto wrists all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a staple in the workplace. In fact, Forrester reported that 68 percent of technology and business decision-makers characterize wearables as a top priority for 2015. Recognizing their business value early on, FinancialForce.com was the first to bring ERP to wearables, helping streamline communication across front and back office functions. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kevin Roberts, GM of Platform at FinancialForce.com, will discuss the value of business applications on wearable ...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
