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."

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.

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.
