CAMPBELL, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/23/13 -- YouSendIt, Inc., a leading cloud file collaboration service, reaffirms its deep commitment to mobile by launching brand new mobile apps for iPhone, Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. All apps have been totally re-imagined from the ground up to meet the needs of an increasingly mobile user base.
These new mobile solutions serve the growing number of corporate employees and other professionals using their own smartphones and tablets for work. The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) movement means people need intuitive, multiplatform tools like YouSendIt to access and enhance their digital files across devices, as well as for on-the-go sharing with colleagues, clients and other collaborators.
A completely rebuilt iOS app
YouSendIt's new iOS app provides a comprehensive and enhanced mobile service for accessing documents, presentations, video and more from anywhere. Users can do everything from sending and storing files to sharing folders and signing documents using their iPhone, with any changes securely synced and instantly available for other devices and people.
Aside from completely recreating the YouSendIt iPhone experience, the revamped app also has a number of great new features designed to help users get the job done whether they are on-site with a client, waiting in an airport lounge or working from home.
- Faster access: quick-swipe on files or folders for easy access to actions toolbar
- Send without storing: send photos and videos straight from the device without saving to YouSendIt
- Quick sign: create and save signatures to instantly add to any document later
- Rename: quick-swipe to rename files and folders
- Sort: make finding files and folders easier by sorting by name, type, size and date
The new YouSendIt iOS app is now free to download from the App Store for iPhone or iPod touch. Try it now by clicking this link: YouSendIt for iPhone or iPod touch.
A multi-platform solution
The launch of the new YouSendIt iPhone app comes hot on the heels of the recently launched Windows 8, Windows Phone 8 and Samsung S-Pen apps, providing users of these devices with the same great cloud collaboration service already available on other platforms such as Android.
Each app offers the YouSendIt technology our users have grown to love as well as increased functionality on several popular devices and platforms. Just one example is how YouSendIt partnered with Nokia to create exclusive features for their smartphone customers.
"We are very excited about the YouSendIt Windows Phone 8 app developed between YouSendIt, Microsoft and Nokia. The YouSendIt app with Near Field Communication (NFC) delivers powerful sharing capabilities to Nokia consumers and businesses," says Bryan Biniak, VP and GM Global Partner and Application Development, Nokia. "The app provides Lumia users a seamless solution for sharing files anytime, anywhere. Add in unique, exclusive features like NFC and Nokia Lumia owners can share content with a simple tap of their phones."
The BYOD effect
According to global research firm Forrester, 350 million employees will use smartphones by 2016, with 200 million choosing to bring their own device to work. This seismic systemic shift will see professional users demanding the same kind of end-user experiences in business as they enjoy in their personal lives. Businesses are already responding to the consumerization of IT by implementing BYOD policies and are searching for simple, safe and secure multipurpose mobile solutions.
"YouSendIt recognizes mobile devices are important for how we share information," said Eric Hart, Network/Infrastructure Manager at premium golf equipment brand, PING. "Teams at PING use YouSendIt on smartphones, tablets and traditional computers to collaborate with our partners, clients and vendors for a more consistent and secure experience. YouSendIt has reduced the obstacles and effort it took to share information."
A secure mobile service
YouSendIt's mobile apps continue to provide businesses with a robust infrastructure that ensures data security and enhances productivity, giving IT leaders and CIOs an advanced feature set including: SAML-based Single Sign-On, remote wipe, centralized policy management, compliance reporting and end-to-end encryption.
"Seventy-five percent of businesses allow employees to use their personal mobile devices for work purposes," explains YouSendIt Chief Product Officer, Matte Scheinker. "These employees want to use their favorite productivity tools like YouSendIt, while CIOs need to ensure the security of the company's data however people access it. Our YouSendIt mobile apps provide both the simple document management solutions demanded by employees and the robust security required by the business. They're loved by users and approved by IT."
Try the new YouSendIt mobile apps
With comprehensive, intuitive and popular apps now available for each of the major mobile platforms, YouSendIt is able to offer complete cloud collaboration solutions for professionals on the go.

Every innovation or invention was originally a daydream. You like to imagine a “what-if” scenario. And with all the attention being paid to the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) you don’t have to stretch the imagination too much to see how this may impact commercial and homeowners insurance. We’re beyond the point of accepting this as a leap of faith. The groundwork is laid. Now it’s just a matter of time. We can thank the inventors of smart thermostats for developing a practical business application that everyone can relate to. Gone are the salad days of smart home apps, the early chalkb...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...

Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along with a steady stream of well-publicized data breaches, only add to the uncertainty

The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly in the process of breaking from its heretofore relatively obscure enterprise applications (such as plant floor control and supply chain management) and going mainstream into the consumer space. More and more creative folks are interconnecting everyday products such as household items, mobile devices, appliances and cars, and unleashing new and imaginative scenarios. We are seeing a lot of excitement around applications in home automation, personal fitness, and in-car entertainment and this excitement will bleed into other areas. On the commercial side, m...

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
