Seems like everyone's aching to store your files, these days -- Dropbox, Sugar Sync, that new startup, Google. Logmein's gotten into the game as well, launching its Cubby service in beta earlier this year, letting folks share files on their Windows machines, Macs and iOS and Android devices. The company's looking to entice interested parties by offering up 1GB of storage for users who refer a friend to the service. Also new is unlimited sharing of "Cubbies" and a refreshed iOS app.
Since the beta launch of Cubby earlier this year LogMeIn has taken on board a ton of great feedback from fellow Cubbsters and made the cloud service even better. Cubby is the cloud data service to simply and securely share information across PCs, Macs, iPads, iPhones, Android devices, or with other people.
Cubby is the first service built on LogMeIn's very own cloud data sync and storage platform letting people turn any number of PC or Mac folders into 'cubbies' that can be accessed from other devices, stored in the cloud, and shared with colleagues and friends. Cubby also gives people the option to simply share or sync an unlimited amount of information across their devices for free, and without ever counting against cloud storage limits.
So, to celebrate the next phase of the beta LogMeIn's Cubby now offer users:
· New referral reward program – offering at least 2 x the additional free space (twice as much as Dropbox) per referral of any of the cloud sync and store offerings on the market. Cubbsters are given 1GB of additional space every time they refer a friend into Cubby. Simply invite 5 friends and it'll double the free storage you already have (from 5GB to 10GB)
· Unlimited sharing of cubbies – sharing cubbies is half the fun of using Cubby and now LogMeIn allows users to share cubbies with everyone. Share your stuff with friends, family and colleagues alike for everyone to get the full Cubby experience and for easy and remote communication at all times
· Updated iOS app – the improved app is now available from the Apple app store allowing users to open and upload any file on the iPhone or iPad into Cubby. Also, open any Cubby file in other apps, like QuickOffice, Pages, Keynote, Evernote and even Dropbox
· Cubbies noted on desktop, explorer – now any folder that has been turned into a Cubby is marked with a Cubby icon when viewed on the desktop or via explorer to clearly mark cubbified folders
